When it comes to babies and infants most parents are well aware and agree that going barefoot is the healthiest choice for little feet. We let our small children crawl and toddle around without shoes whenever possible or opt for soft soled shoes that allow their growing feet to develop naturally. The big question is, when does ‘barefoot is best’ end?


At VIVOBAREFOOT they believe that ‘barefoot is best’ is a lifestyle, and by walking barefoot from early on people can grow strong and naturally healthy feet. They first created the original barefoot shoe in 2003 and today they offer the largest range of barefoot shoes on the market. You may have seen the ‘grown-up’ VIVOBAREFOOT shoes around but have you spotted the VIVOBAREFOOT kids range too?

Neo Velcro WhiteBecause a child’s foot is not fully formed until late teenage years and consists of bones that are soft and malleable, any artificial alternations in the shape of ‘pre-formed’ shoes (e.g. stiff materials and hard soles, padded pitch and arch support) will interfere with natural foot development. Allow your child’s feet to get naturally strong and go barefoot with one of VIVOBAREFOOT’s trendy kids shoes.

Neo Velcro PinkWhether you need a traditional black school shoe, a white runner for PE, a stylish boot, a comfy water shoe or a colourful sneaker for sport and play the VIVOBAREFOOT range has got all kids feet covered from a tiny size 18 up to a generous size 36. Our very active miss 4 is always running, jumping, climbing, crawling, hopping or skipping so these bright pink Neo Kids shoes (RRP $89.95) are perfect for her and the velcro closure makes them super easy and quick to put on (ideal for kindy days!).

At first the VIVOBAREFOOT design takes a bit of getting used to, but when you see how easy her feet slide into the shoe, how lightweight and breathable the shoe is and how it wraps around the natural shape of the foot the barefoot principle is very obvious. According to miss 4 her Neo Velcro Kids shoes are very comfy and she can run really fast in them so she’s a happy little camper.

Disney Alexander

We’ve all had had them, those days where everything that can possibly go wrong goes wrong and things get progressively worse as the day goes on. When it’s finally bedtime you breathe a sigh of relief and hop in bed, hoping the next day will be better. In the latest Disney movie release 11-year old Alexander has one of those days too and you’ll be surprised how funny it actually is when it’s happening to someone else:

Alexander Blu-rayAfter experiencing a particularly horrible day himself Alexander Cooper is sure he is the only one doing it tough. It leaves him to think: if only the rest of his family could have an equally horrible day… His birthday wish comes through the next day and in Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day we follow the Cooper family and their misfortunes on this one, long, unbelievable disastrous day.

From accidental sleep-ins to unfortunate colds, from big typos to car troubles, from failed exams to embarrassing tumbles, the entire Cooper family is having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. But does it make Alexander feel any better? The day is not over until it’s over and Alexander’s birthday turns out to be a lesson for all. This is a hilarious comedy that is sure to be enjoyed by families around the globe (PG rated).

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is available on DVD ($39.95) and Blu-ray ($49.95) at major retailers across Australia.

Now that those nails are in top shape thanks to the Flawless Nails kit you want to make sure they stay that way. Revitanail has got all you need to get those nails looking strong, healthy and glossy and the best part is, you can pick up these great Mother’s Day gift ideas at your local supermarket:

Revitanail Base CoatWhen it comes to adding a pop of colour to your newly manicured nails you may be tempted to get out the nail polish straight away, however the key to making that colour last long and beautifully is to start with a preparation layer. Revitanail Base Coat (RRP $14.95) not only helps secure your nail polish and prevents peeling and chipping, it also stops your nails discolouring in reaction to your nail polish. Enriched with Avocado Oil and Vitamin E it’s a lovely little treat for your nails.

Revitanail Triple Strength range

Expect superior gloss and perfect coverage with Revitanail Triple Strength (RRP $14.95). This easy-to-apply nail polish is the ultimate power supply for nails thanks to the strengthening properties of Keratin, Bamboo and Calcium. With five on-trend colours to choose from there is a Triple Strength Nail Polish to suit everyone: Marshmallow, Cashmere, Pomegranate, Black Plum and Graphite.

Revitanail Top CoatOnce you are happy with your colour, seal in the goodness with a simple layer of Revitanail Top Coat (RRP $14.95). This transparent, quick dry coat adds a beautiful high gloss and is the perfect bodyguard for your new nail colour. It protects against fading, yellowing and changing of colour so you can enjoy your beautiful nails for longer. Prevention is better than cure, after all most mums don’t have the time to re-do their colour every few days.

Revitanail Nourishing OilLast but not least, don’t let dry and flaky cuticles take away from your smashing new nail colour. It’s as easy as massaging in some Revitanail Nourishing Oil (RRP $14.95) around each cuticle and nail bed and watch the nourishing oils (sweet almond, apricot and tea tree oil), herbal extracts and multivitamins work their magic. Even if you are not using nail polish you can still use this luxurious oil to keep your hands healthy and hydrated.

You can find the Revitanail range at Priceline, Coles, Woolworths and selected pharmacies across Australia.

I don’t know about you but I am always a bit jealous of women with beautifully manicured hands and feet. I would love to be able to visit a nail salon regularly and get pampered but sadly my busy schedule and budget just don’t allow for it. If you feel the same you will be pleased to know that thanks to Remington you can give your hands that much-wanted makeover yourself in the comfort of your own home at just a fraction of the cost.

Flawless Nails Remington

The Remington Flawless Nails Manicure & Pedicure Kit (RRP $49.95) is a compact beauty set that contains all the essential tools you need for a salon-style mani pedi (the only thing missing is the salon worker but a generous hubby makes a perfect beauty specialist too!).

Remington Flawless NailsThe multifunctional handheld device can be used to file, shape, clean, buff and even remove callus, simply by connecting one of the many nail care attachments. With ten different attachments to choose from you can really personalise your treatment to suit your nails perfectly. The Flawless Nails unit is easy to use so you’ll feel like a real professional in no time, if you’re not quite sure what to use each piece for a handy manual is included to get you started.

Remington Flawless Nails KitThe handheld unit has a cordless runtime of up to 2,5 hours (that’s a very decent nail treatment!) and can easily be recharged within the storage case. At $49.95 the Flawless Nails kit is a well-priced Mother’s Day gift that, unlike a costly gift voucher for a one-time treatment at your local salon, can be enjoyed over and over again providing excellent value for money. As always Remington offers welcome peace of mind with a generous 2-year product warranty.

All 14 pieces are packed neatly together in a nice storage case, so you can easily take the kit with you wherever you go or store when not in use. Nice bonus: The built-in high speed dryer helps your nail polish to dry quick smart, stay tuned for more nail polish tips (and a giveaway!) tomorrow.
