Summer Adventures – My Son Thinks He’s Lightning McQueen

I believe schools have closed in the UK, and the summer adventures are now in full swing. The Kiddies had their end of term party yesterday and it was good fun. They enjoyed the food and the chance to play with their friends; some they may never see again. I enjoyed it too. It was a chance for me to watch them and take it all in, until the heavens opened. Of all days to rain, the rain decided to pour down yesterday and it almost messed up our garden party.

Now that the kids are home for 6 weeks and we have no holidays planned at the moment, I am looking to keep them busy as much as I can. We have a couple of days out planned for the next few weeks. And we may still go for a last minute Europe holiday break somewhere, so that is not completely ruled out.

Since I am looking to keep them busy, out and about, their bikes and scooters are going to used a lot this summer holiday. We had the pleasure of receiving some bike helmets and gloves from the lovely people at Kiddimoto the other day. The kids love their new helmets and gloves, and I love them too.

 

 

VALENTINO ROSSI BICYCLE HELMET £42

This lovely helmet is for my son. I went for the 5+ size (MEDIUM: 53-58CM (AGE 5+)) and it suits him perfectly. The design is also so colourful and beautiful. Great for the summery weather.

 

 

OFFICIALLY LICENSED EVEL KNIEVEL CHILDREN’S HELMET £42

This stunning helmet is for my daughter and she adores the striking design. I got this in the medium size as well (53-58CM – AGE 5+), and it suits her perfectly with plenty to grow into. The last thing you would need is to have your kids wear small/uncomfortable helmets while riding their bikes or scooters. Apart from it being a pain to put on, it is also not safe when it is the wrong size.

 

KIDS BLACK CYCLING GLOVES £10.50

They both got these Kiddimoto Gloves to protect their little hands while riding. The gloves helps them stay comfortable and safe while out and about on their bikes. My son thinks he is Lightning McQueen when he is on his scooter, partly because he has a Lightning McQueen Scooter. So I have to keep up with him and make sure he is well dressed for the ride.

 

What do you think of the helmets and gloves? Please sound off in the comments section below.

Have a lovely sunny day!

What shoes to choose for a summery day date to the beach

Summery days with the warm breeze kissing the face is a blessing that we want to have 365 days a year in our lives. Sadly, our demographics don’t allow so. After being catapulted by the grim winters and autumn for a major chunk of the year, summer truly is the time to rejoice and get our bikinis out. The perfect weather makes it the best time to go to the beach, enjoy some chilled margaritas with the girlies and lie as the salt water and cool breeze calm our senses.

The idea of going to a beach in pitch winters is a foolish one. So a person who loves the sea looks forward to the summer and spring season, for a beach holiday to let the hair down. And it’s pretty worth it, too. The beach has this eerie sense of calm about it and soothes the soul of the most mentally wounded people. There’s not one reason why a person shouldn’t be visiting the beach when the time is right in the year.

Besides, this is time, when women can truly flaunt their skin and curves without getting a chill to their bones! The colourful bikinis come out, the skimpy bathing suits are flaunted and beautiful legs make a foray into the world. The beach is such a wonderful place to be!

Beach fashion for the feet

The only part about beaches that haunt women is the amount of sand that sticks to your body. Especially when it gets to all parts of footwear; no matter what you wear on your feet. While people may walk barefoot on the sand, it’s not advisable as shells or little crabs may give your feet the worst time.
So, here are the best types of footwear you could be wearing on your trip to the beach –

 

1. Flip-flops

A no-brainer, really; flip-flops are your best bet. They are made of rubber and no amount of sand or water will affect their longevity. One tap along each other and all the sand come off of them. Besides, the vibrant and haute colours in flip flops will make you choose more than one!

 

2. Gladiator flats

These are the best, if you are going to be wearing a bikini or a short swimsuit. It will not only make walking in the sand comfortable, but will also give your bare legs a dimension. And you can always choose the length of the gladiator flat sandal as per your choice.

 

3. Tie-leg sandals

Again, if you are going to be flaunting those legs on the beach, give your legs an element to flaunt too. The tie-leg flat sandals are available in so many types; plain Jane, tasselled sandals and even the fringed ones; there’s a lot to choose from.

 

4. Crocs

Crocs and beaches go hand-in-hand. If you have nothing in your closet, a pair of crocs will let you survive. These let your feet breathe and are super comfortable. As the Crocs  strikes your feet, they will not stick to your skin and will give you an easy time.

 

5. Slip ons or slide ons

Given the fact, that you are going to remove your footwear a lot of times and then wear it again, you need something that is easy to wear and not takes much time to come off. For this purpose, slip ons and slide on are best. They come in so many styles; you can choose from the mini wedge or the light wedge, there’s the double strap or the single strap or even the cross over strap!

 

What sort of footwear do you have packed in your summer hoiliday suitcase?

Holidaying in Muscat Oman

Still on the Middle East mini tour, after spending a week in Dubai, we went off to spend a weekend in Muscat, Oman. We have friends over there, so it was nice to catch up and explore the lovely city. Muscat is a beautiful conservative city. It is nothing as fancy as Dubai, but it is worth a visit if you are around the area.

We stayed over at Raddison Blu hotel, which was fab. We were hardly ever in the hotel because we were too busy trying to see the entire city in 48 hours, but the room was dead comfy when we needed it.

Muscat was very warm, it was over 38 degrees most of the time, but not as warm as Dubai. The kids had an amazing time. We visited many child friendly parks, one of them being Funtazmo in Oman Avenues Mall. It is the largest indoor family amusement centre in Oman. There were all sorts of games and rides, to keep the adults and children busy. We had a lovely time there.

It was 1 ride after the other for us. There was no dull moment here at Funtazmo, the kiddies didn’t want to leave. I even got on a few rides myself, screaming my lungs out as usual!

After spending a few hours here at the mall, we visited a few other shopping malls, markets, restaurants and the famous Al Qurum Natural Park (all in 48 hours). We visited the park at night, and got on even more rides with the kids. It was an amazing experience I would never forget.

I was too busy with the rides to remember to take some photos at the Al Qurum Natural Park, but the memories will stay with me forever!
