Zulily Review And Competition

8 Aug

When I was asked to review zulily the online store that brings you daily designer deals for kids at discount prices, I jumped at the chance.

With the sun blazing it was time to get the toddler a trendy new outfit to struct his stuff in.

Here’s what he wore while attending a summer barbecue and chilling with his little buddies all courtesy of Zulily.

I love Harley in yellow and this Funky Monkey tee did him a treat. He loves the cool motorbike image that is printed on both the front and the back. The shorts are also very cool! My younger brother (now in his late twenties) was a huge Batman fan and he would have love these back in the day! That’s why I’m calling these Harley’s new retro shorts.

As for the hoody, its incredibly smart and fashionable but as you may have guessed, a little to on the warm side to be wearing it just yet. I’m sure this will get loads of wear during the colder english months to come.

Sadly I was unable to get some great images of the front of his outfit as he was far to busy engaged in his play session with he’s cousins… Yes, it’s hard work trying to photograph a lively 3 year old boy when he has a sand pit and push along car in front of him.

So now for some exciting news! Zulily’s have kindly offered one of my readers the chance to bag themselves a £20 voucher to send on a deal of there choice over on the Zulily site.

But firstly here’s a bit more about Zulily and how it all works…

Zulily was founded by two dads when they couldn’t find unique clothes for their children at affordable prices… You can read the Zulily story here!
They are a members only site that generally has 30-90% of the retail prices on today’s children’s fashion.
They run around 8-10 events a day
and work with smaller, boutique brands as well as bigger brands so there is literally something for everyone’s taste.

What’s more as a member (which is free) You can earn zulily credit through referring your friends – £10 per friend referred once their first order ships. Now that’s what I call an Incentive!

Zulily also have a monthly Cuties Instagram competition, which is featured on there blog. I regularly enter this one as they have some fabulous prizes up for grabs and some fun monthly themes.

They also have an iPhone app that you can find HERE

Do It Right… Be A Knight

31 May

Checkout the little handsome chap below…

That’s my son you know…

Adorable, wouldn’t you agree?

Such a big boy now… Drinking from his big boy cup!

20120531-123059.jpg

And guess what? His also a brave young hero… Just like Mike the Knight

20120531-123354.jpg

Mike the Knight was first brought to our screens last November by CBeebies and is already proving to be a raving success. Mike now has a great fan base which includes my two-year old “Harley” as you can see from his impressive tee.

Harley’s very cute t-shirt is exclusive to Tescos for the great price of a fiver.

It features the hero himself Mike the knight as well as one of his dragon companions ‘Squirt’ and the funky little quote “Be a knight do it right”

As you can see from the pictures the t-shirt arrived at the perfect time what with the beautiful weather we’ve been experiencing lately. Of course this also meant there was lots of outdoor action. Seriously the garden can become a very messy place to play, especially when melting ice lollies and blue ice cream (seriously blue…) are thrown in the mix!

I’m not the type of mother who freaks out if the toddler gets a bit messy… It’s what kids do. I do however feel disappointed if their clothing fails to meet the standards expected when they come out the washer. Thankfully the use of good detergent removed any traces of garden and the t-shirt really washes well… No bubbles, peeling or shrinking… Perfect (nothing worse than your child screaming to wear something that has half it’s transfer missing)!

The above for me indicates that lots of wear will be had from the toddlers new tee and that for me confirms it to be great value for money.

Whats more the toddler loves it! His been dashing round the garden all afternoon singing the words of the very catchy Mike the Knight theme tune.

Plus he looks dapper (I can’t believe I just said dapper)!

So be sure to… “Do it right be a knight” when dressing your little Mike the Knight fans this summer… and get yourselves of to Tescos.

For full details of the exclusive new range visit Tescos online

Plus I’ve also heard that Mike the Knight himself will be visiting selected Tesco stores for meet and greets in celebration of the new range of toys and clothing. To find out if his coming to a store near you, visit Mike the Knight on Twitter or the Mike the Knight Facebook page
