As you probably know I love giving away things and I run giveaways as often as I can, it is so nice to share my hip finds and make people happy with a wonderful prize. But every now and then I myself am lucky too and a few weeks ago I won a beautiful Minimink blanket for baby Sybil. I thought I’d share a little snap of the little lady on the Minimink throw:

Minimink is an Australian company, well known all around the world for its beautiful luxurious faux fur products. If you’re a keen The Bachelor fan you may have spotted some Minimink goodness on the show just two weeks ago! The Minimink blanket is 100x100cm in size, perfect as a warm blanket for a tiny little bundle, a soft play rug for on the ground or a cosy throw rug on the couch which is where you can find ours most of the time. The older kids are always fighting for a turn with the ‘fluffy blanket’.

Minimink Play RugThe great thing about these classic blankets is that they last well past the baby stage, so you can enjoy them for years and they will be loved by babies, kids and adults. The Minimink blanket ($89) is available in six lovely colours, from neutral milk (our pick for baby Sybil) or chocolate brown to ebony black or even cherry red. You can find them all in the Minimink store at Loubilou, a fantastic new market place for Australian businesses.

A few weeks ago I wrote about wrapping up a Remington Power Tool Haircut Kit for Father’s Day and I promised you an update later on. To read all the facts and figures about this new Remington product read my original post here. Well, as expected my husband’s first response was: ‘But I already have a set of clippers!’. I told him to at least give these shiny new ones a try as we already had them now anyway and so he did.

Remington Power Tool Haircut KitUpon opening the toolbox storage case he was immediately impressed by the nice sturdy feel and quality look of the unit and accessories. Normally he hides in the bathroom with the door closed as not to wake the kids with the loud buzzing noise so he was expecting a similar sound level with the new clippers but we were pleasantly surprised. The Remington Power Tool Haircut Kit was really quiet, definitely no need to close the door anymore.

Usually I have to check it all over afterwards and re-do the spots he missed but this time there were none so clearly the Haircut Kit is very consistent and time efficient, that means he is able to do it on his own without needing a second opinion (there is no way he could have with the old clippers!). The 3 meter long power cord allowed hubby to move around freely which he really liked.

The end result? A happy, very good looking husband who was more than happy to ditch the old, noisy, blunt clippers. I think we can call that a successful Father’s Day gift!
