Vionic Shoes Review

Shoes have always been a nightmare for me, I've never enjoyed shoe shopping for a variety of reasons..

I have big feet (size 8), I have a chipped bone in my big toe (an injury from my early teens) and I also have Hypermobility Syndrome and bad balance. For the last couple of years I have lived in Flip Flops, Crocs.. or some old boots - comfort over fashion!

When I had the chance to try some Vionic shoes I was quietly excited, I had researched their website and this is a little bit about them:

Vionic shoes combine both effortless style and comfort, so not only will your feet look good, but they’ll feel fabulous too! The upcoming spring/summer 2017 collection is packed with a range of classic and on-trend styles to choose from, with each shoe offering unique natural alignment that helps to adjust the feet to the correct position and improves posture.

It was the natural alignment that I was really interested in, after so long in Flip Flops my arches had dropped and the first time I put my new shoes on I could really feel the support around my whole foot.

The first week was spent breaking them in and correcting the way I walk (I am also seeing a physio about how I walk) but from the second week onwards the shoes were so incredibly comfortable and I was annoyed with myself I hadn't worn proper shoes earlier!

The pair I chose are called KEA and are stylish but easy for me to slip on as I cannot always bend to put shoes on.

I would recommend Vionic to anyone that has problems with their feet, be it balance or arch problems - there are so many fabulous designs on the website, I shall be confident from now on in buying shoes that are comfortable and not limiting myself to one pair!

You can check out the fab designs by visiting the website HERE

They also do men's shoes too!

ASDA LITTLE ANGELS DAY AND NIGHT PANTS REVIEW


Having a large preschooler who is not yet potty trained due to his additional issues and now having him in the largest size baby nappy available (6+) I recently started to panic about what to do if he doesn't slim down and the nappy no longer fits!

My eldest son was potty trained by 3 years old so this is a new experience for me and I had been told that the NHS won't supply nappies until they are 5 years old - although we are hoping he will be ready before then.

ASDA Little Angels have just launched super absorbent DAY AND NIGHT PANTS for older children aged four to 12 which offers super absorbency and complete confidence day and night.

 What I've found with these pants is they are absolutely perfect for Bee's physique and the smaller size fit beautifully.

The football design on the boys pants is pleasing to youngsters while not being babyish some nappies are,

We are extremely impressed with the fact that we no longer need to panic about not having nappies for Bee. Little Angels have always been our first go to for absorbency, fit and quality.

ASDA Little Angels Day & Night Pants are available in size M (4-7 years, or 17-30kgs/38-66lbs) and L (8-12 years, or 24-50kgs/53-110lbs).

ASDA Little Angels Day & Night Pants are priced at £3.87 per pack (10 items per pack in size M and 9 in size L) They are available in larger stores, or you can order online at ASDA.com 

As a special needs parent its one less thing to worry about! Thanks ASDA!

Trolls Screening! Trolls sing along on DVD is out now!

On Monday I took Rocket to London as his 7th birthday treat and after a couple of hours travelling we met up with Danielle and her girls to head to a sing a long screening of Trolls at the Prince Charles Theatre in Leicester Square.

Rocket and I hadn't seen the film yet so we were very excited to see it (well half as we had to dash off to catch a train to KidZania!) but we enjoyed meeting Princess Poppy and Branch outside of the theatre and singing along to the very catchy songs in the movie! - we shall be getting the DVD so we can watch the rest and also so Bee can watch as I think he would love it - especially how colourful and magical it looks!



DreamWorks Troll's is available on Blu-ray and DVD now courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

If you'd like to see what Rocket got up to during the day and clips of going to the screening then watch our Vlog HERE
