Chewy Moon- Healthy Snack Box Review + Giveaway



As a Parent of two Children it can be hard to find healthy snacks with fussy eaters and this is surely a problem in our house with our four year old boy Alfie!

Chewy Moon is a cool and fun way to get kids eating healthy snacks with their creative alternative snack boxes,lets have a closer look all about this brand.




About us

We created ChewyMoon to make it easy for you to create special snacks that
have a formative impact on the way children perceive snacking in later life.
Nicely balanced snacks energise children, enabling them to participate
in so more of what life has to offer.

We want kids to know their food better, be excited about interesting snacks
and share them with their friends. We want kids to grow up believing that
good, honest and healthy food can be tasty too.
About them

As we developed the idea of ChewyMoon and a snack box that included cool
stuff for kids to do our imaginations started to run wild.

We’ve imagined a bunch of characters who kids will love to know all about.
They are quirky, odd, slightly rude and very energetic. Adults don’t really
get them and some don’t like them… which is exactly what we want!




There are two types of boxes you can choose from the first choice- is a trial box at £4.95 p&p 98p which we find very good as it's this is one box to test out to see if your kids will like the box. 

Second choice - is a weekly deliveries of this box at £3.95 with 98p postage you can cancel at any time so you are not tied in, payments are billed two days prior to the box been dispatched. 

You might be thinking "what if my child does not like a certain fruit" 
well do not worry as when you go to build your box they have a system that you can input your child's likes and dislikes, also Children's needs plus life stages too. 



In your box you'll find 

*5 yummy healthy snacks

*Stackable totem toy


*Brain-busting fact card

*Cool comic strip



In our box we received...

T2 Tea & Teaware Shop



Tea has been around in the UK since the 18th century and is drank all over World by us Tea lovers,but not only that its the amazing freedom around Tea by that I mean all the different varieties even drinking it hot or cold!

Recently there has been a big buzz around Tea and I have found on my travels some trendy new shops one of them been T2
So what is T2 all about I hear you say well lets introduce them to you....


We’re inspired by the people we meet, and the far-flung places we visit. We get a kick out of taking ancient tea rituals and reimagining them, bringing them to a modern tea table. Every cup we brew is a chance to make tea more enjoyable, more accessible and more experimental; it’s our opportunity to connect, understand and share with the world our love for a better cup of tea, everyday.



I personally came to find this brand by chance over in Sheffield's Meadowhall. What caught my eye had to be such cool / trendy teapots & tea cups some looking like something you would see at a mad hatters tea party they were so different with it's twist of imaginative style.  

T2 are available to order online or pop into one of their stores , you can choose from a huge rage of teas and exquisite teawares too including.... 




Among the Teaware you will come across so many gadgets if you are first time using loose tea you will find the selection of infusers if you are not sure what they can do then this might help.


A tea infuser is a device in which loose, dried tea leaves are placed for steeping or brewing, in a mug or a teapot full of hot water; it is often called a teaball or tea maker, and sometimes a tea egg.

Have to say I fell in love with T2 and ended up getting a few items that are pictured below 

They included...






Lamington Tea has to be my favorite with it's Sweet chocolaty flavors play with hints of tropical coconut on a backdrop of sharp and full-bodied black tea. It's the classic chocolate covered treat that you can sip!
Enjoy with: Perfect on its own or with a dash of milk.

Store in a cool, dry place.

Taste wise is outstanding as it's made with highest-quality ingredients one of the best I have mad. 


Lots of gifts for Christmas too.
If you are looking to host a Tea party or just want to simply relax with a good cup of Tea then T2 is for you.

I highly recommend going to take a look at this store to find your nearest one pop on over to http://www.t2tea.com/en/uk/stores

Visit us at one of our Litecraft shops and stores.



The lights we choose can create the moods / atmosphere we need in our homes such as....

Romantic: to create this mood you need softer lighting, with warm and soft colours. Try candle light or lamps/lights with dimmers to create an intimate and relaxing feel.

Lively and cheerful: to create this mood you need the room to be brightly lit, with plenty of lamps, spotlights and a variety of other lights on. Warmer colours tend to create a more cheerful vibe, such as orange, red and yellow.

Morning and night time: here you will want to create a mood that embraces the half asleep-half awakeness you are feeling. This also requires soft lighting, though not as soft as a romantic mood might, again dimmer switches are perfect here as you can gradually increase or decrease the light to ease you into the waking up/going to sleep process.

Accent lighting: this is perfect if you want to draw attention to a specific part of your room or things within your room, furthermore it adds dimension and is very welcoming to guests.



Eleganza Floor Lamp




The picture above shows the Eleganza floor standing lighting we have been reviewing over the last few weeks and shows how effective lighting can be.



The Eleganza lighting range from king of affordable luxury, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, allows you to illuminate your room in sumptuous fashion.

The antique brass base of the Eleganza floor lamp is embellished with stunning mercury glass detailing for a gorgeous crackled look that reflects the light beautifully. The lamp is finished with a cream pleated shade for true elegance and style.

Useful info:

More Floor Lamps can be found over on this link ----> Floor Lamps





We your item arrives, you will find it to have very good packaging and even polystyrene blocks to give it that extra protection,also came in excellent timing so no worries on waiting for weeks and weeks for your light to come.

Assembling Eleganza floor lamp was one of ease took only a few minutes, which was perfect and no messing about figuring out what is what!
Have to say I did try a few places to see which room the lamp would be best in, went with the living-room first and it did look good and also placing the floor lamp in our conservatory and yes it set the room alight for us in our house.

What struck me from this light is the grand elegance with it's shear glistering embellished glass crackled effect from the neck of the lamp,its golden brass tones are sure to put a touch of luxurious feel to your room.

You can tell it's a well put together robust floor lamp and did you know that lighting can make a room look bigger,well yes it can as if you have a dark corner of your room, placing a lighting such a floor standing lighting has the effect to open up a room and even draw the eye upwards especially if it's a tall floor lamp.

OrganycUK Review & Giveaway




We at Precious Little Worlds have been given a great opportunity to join up with the amazing OrganycUK to bring you some fantastic reviews and a Giveaway too......

First of all lets take a look about OrganycUK 

OrganycUK Offers 100% Natural & Organic Feminine and Beauty Care Range Which Has Been Made With 100% Organic Pure Cotton Wool.


All our products are 100% certified organic cotton cleaned with oxygen peroxide (natural occurring disinfectant), with Hypoallergenic composition: no perfumes, no colouring, no synthetic materials, no SAP (Super Absorbent Powders). Organyc products are naturally soft and breathable to help prevent skin irritations, rashes and redness. They have high absorbency due to the natural prorperties of cotton fibres. The feminine care range are completely biodegradable and compostable: wrapping and back-sheet pads layer are made of Mater-Bi(R), a bio-polymer film deriving from corn starch.



We have been given a wonderful selection from the their Organic Beauty Range which included....



Organyc biodegradable Organic Cotton Wool Pads have only one ingredient,100% organic cotton. The superior quality of the organic cotton is clear from the soft touch of the multi-purpose pads. Whether using for removing your make-up or for general use the handy organic cotton wool pads will feel soft against your skin. Organyc products are vegan and completely biodegradable, in fact theseorganic cotton wool pads are also certified by eco-cert. The quality of this product is further highlighted by the ethical farming involved in the cultivation of theOrganyc organic cotton pads as well as supporting the environment.


If you are like me and very much into make-up what better way to it off then using these super soft Organic Cotton pads. It may sound odd I know but never have I felt such softness from cotton pads before,this is very important to me as I have very sensitive skin.

They come in at a price of £2.39 for 70 pads per pack "yes" its a little higher then your standard range but for me I like to know what is in my beauty items and that its going to work well for me, and that you are supporting the environment.
What is also good is that they don't fall apart and rip like other cotton pads do as they are very durable,they are double sided and are embossed which allows you do get a deep clean with a ultimate extra soft touch.

Highly recommend these Organic Cotton Pads.     








These Organyc biodegradable organic cotton buds are fully certified by eco cert. This ensures the production of the organic cotton buds works in harmony with the environment to support biodiversity. Furthermore the organic cotton is grown without artificial pesticides and supports ethical farming and in turn local farming communities. The Organyc organic cotton buds are soft to the touch and will care for you and your family’s needs in a natural and organic way. With the only ingredient being 100% organic cotton these cotton buds ensure optimum quality that you can use every day. 


Cotton buds have been around for so many years I remember them back in my childhood too as they have so many uses...

Personally I don't tent to use cotton buds for ears what I use mine for the little mistakes we make on our make-up as they come in handy and not only that perfect for nail polish runs too.

You can even apply eyeshadow with them and if you love the smokey eyes then simply rub the pud on the upper lids,also outlining your lips or even using them for smudges.
They are so good if you have any spots as you can dab tea tree oil on to them the list goes on. Price range you are looking at £2.49 for 200 per pack which is good as they have so many uses to them and always come in handy.

You can order them or see more over on http://www.organyc.uk/
