Encourage mom to take some time out for herself with this bright, playful, bubble and floral themed gift. Mum gives mom a choice of five different bath luxuries to choose from. The round re-usable tin (labelled with a ‘Mum’ sticker so she can store her things afterwards) has a bright and colorful print that was inspired by hydrangeas and the floral design depicts what’s inside. Contains: Secret Garden bath bomb, Inhale Exhale bath bomb, Mum’s reusable bubble bar wand, Rose bubble bar, Mumkin bubble bar, Dream Cream hand and body lotion (100g), Gorgeous moisturizer (trial size). My favorite (so far)  is the Secret Garden bath bomb! I haven’t yet used everything in this gift package but I really can’t wait! It has made my Mom time bath time really something to look forward to! I just was so excited to feature LUSH before Mother’s Day that I haven’t had a chance to try everything yet!

They also have great products for everyone in the family! We received the  multi-purpose moldable soap! This is so different and great for kids and your inner child too! This is soap, shampoo, bubble bath and a toy all in one! Each color has a different scent , which is so cool! My son loved the Blue one which is the Calming bedtime bath roll. I loved the Yellow one which is Cozy Vanilla bathtime treat. I have never seen anything like these before and they are really affordable too! They are $6.95 each. You can find them here. They are available in 5 different colors: Blue, Pink, Yellow, Green and Red.

Dorothy’s only just returned home from her first incredible journey to Oz, but she’s already being called back for another adventure! After waking to post-tornado Kansas, Dorothy (Lea Michele) and Toto are whisked to Oz on a magical rainbow mover sent by their old friends the Scarecrow (Dan Aykroyd), the Lion (Jim Belushi) and the Tin Man (Kelsey Grammer). Time in Oz has passed much faster than back in Kansas, and Dorothy discovers that the Jester (Martin Short) – the devious brother of the Wicked Witch of the West – is taking Oz over one region at a time, holding their leaders captive and casting a pall of darkness over the beloved land. Even Glinda (Bernadette Peters) is unable to combat the Jester’s evil powers, making Dorothy their only hope.


When she arrives in Oz, Dorothy’s plan is to travel to the Emerald City to reunite with her old friends and join forces with them to stop the Jester. However, the yellow brick road isn’t quite as easy to follow this time around, especially with the Jester planting tricky detours to lead her astray, so she enlists the help of Wiser the owl (Oliver Platt), Marshal Mallow (Hugh Dancy), China Princess (Megan Hilty) and Tugg the tugboat (Patrick Stewart) to help find her way.


Dorothy is grateful for the support of her new friends, but when she realizes that having them by her side means putting them all in grave danger, she has to decide whether to continue to accept their assistance or forge the road alone. But with the future of Oz at stake, it’s going to take as much heart, brain and courage as they can collectively muster to defeat the Jester and return order and happiness to the Emerald City.

Cubebot by AREAWARE More than just a toy!

photo (5)

Robot Toys are usually made of plastic and require batteries. Not this one! Inspired by Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles, the Cubebot is a non-traditional take on the toy robot, Cubebot’s powerful hardwood frame can hold dozens poses, and his elastic-band muscles and durable wood limbs make him impervious to breakage. What is really cool is that when it’s time for him to rest, he folds into a perfect cube. An enduring classic that will withstand generations of play. Comes in Micro, Small, Medium and XL. Recommended for ages 3+. Cubebot is available in many different colors. We received the Multi and my son loves all the different colors. I added this to my son’s Easter Basket last week earlier this month and it was one of his favorite things! Yes, even over the BIG chocolate bunny! My son has a lot of energy and this is also a great toy for nervous energy. My son simply just puts Cubebot in different poses. Cubebot really is more than just a toy!
