Fun In The Sun: Win A Lights Out Blind


Summer is my favourite month of the year, especially now that we have Amelia to enjoy it with. We've spent so much time outside and Amelia loves being out in the garden exploring.

From first experiences, days at the beach, picnics in the park and ice-cream covered faces, summer is a lot of fun for any family. Along with all of this sticky hot weather our babies can get very thirsty and hot and bothered. Today I have teamed up with Bump_PR and six other parent bloggers to make summer life a little easier in this gorgeous weather. I am giving away a Lights Out Blind to one lucky winner!

The Lights Out Blind is fantastic for ensuring that the little ones have regular naps and can sleep no matter how light it is outside. Instead of having to hang blankets, towels or even bin bags over the windows especially in the summer months, Lights Out Blinds go up in seconds, doesn’t need adjusting and even works on open windows. It is perfect for maintaining baby’s sleep routine on holiday and great for daytime napping too – it also ensures little ones room remains shaded and cool all day long. Lights Out, portable, pop-up, blackout blinds keep bedrooms dark and your kids asleep. £34.95 (for a pair)

    about this, such as you wrote the book in it or something.

    that is great blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
