It’s that time of year again when we all get excited for the Christmas Adverts. We even decide which one we think was the best! Which one created the best nostalgia.
Well one Christmas advert did not make the cut this year but for all the wrong reasons.
Why was Iceland’s advert pulled? Banned even?
Deemed as too controversial because Iceland was going against the grain of releasing a product fuelled Christmas advert, instead trying to campaign and spread awareness at a time of year which would make consumers think.
The advert was not cleared to be shown on TV, Iceland made a bold decision to release it on social media platforms to raise awareness of the important issue of tropical deforestation.
Did you know that the equivalent of 300 football fields of rainforest is destroyed every hour to make way for palm oil plantations (Huffington Post).
It is estimated that a Hundred years ago at least 230,000 Orangutans lived on earth! Today there are less than 50,000 left due to deforestation. Palm oil plays a massive part in destroying the rainforests and is one of the biggest secrets of the retail and manufacturing industry.
Indonesia’s rainforests are a biodiversity hotspot, which is rich in endemic species, it is also vital in regulating the Earth’s climate.
But these forests are being torn down for palm oil, pulp and paper plantations, which makes Indonesia the world’s third largest greenhouse gas emitter and threatening endangered species such as orangutans with extinction”. (Greenpeace website 2018)
Greenpeace is campaigning to protect Indonesia’s rainforests.
Not only Orangutans are affected other species, plants and habitats are also affected.
As a family we want to help in which ever way we can. So we will be cutting some things out! We will try not buy or support products which are contributing to this problem watch our video to hear more of our views on this upsetting topic.
You can now buy a cute Orangutan cuddly toy for £5 in Iceland stores to help support the rehabilitation of orphaned orangutans.

What have we been up to? Check out this weeks vlog!
So I tried this texture management system. Which is chemical free to help flat iron my hair. Here are my honest thoughts on this product!
How lovely and how true!
Children remember the time and the adventures spent together.
Okay I can admit what child does not appreciate the material gestures.
What child does not enjoy a few healthy meals here and there or would not live a new car!
A clean home? well some children appreciate while others, well I think with others we can see how important cleaning is when we look in their bedrooms .
Of course we want a clean home and for our children to eat healthy nutritious meals.
We want to educate them, we are invested in their learning.
We want them to have the best things or their every desires.
But I can tell you some of our greatest memories as a family are our trips, adventures quality time spent together.
It costs nothing to share time, love advice, explore go on adventures.
I call these precious moments building memories!
Focusing on building memories rather than a child’s collection of material possessions, or expensive holidays is far more beneficial and rewarding.
Do not get me wrong a holiday, clean home, smart children is important lessons and teachings for a child but do not forget the simple things such as giving your time because time can not be taken back. We do not know what tomorrow holds so live every day as if it were your last and stop, slow down and just chill with your children.
Listen to them more, allow them to see you slow down take a breath and see you more.
What is motherhood? Motherhood is love and a precious gift of life. It is a journey it is about building memories.
We are not in competition with each other so do not compare or compete with others build your own memories and enjoy your journey.
Remember to stay blessed and fabulous!
Oh my isn’t this the truth!
So many people are focusing on working out or eating right in order to gain or maintain a healthy body.
But how many people are focusing of trying to build or maintain a healthy mind!
I can tell you from experience you can hit the gym or work out! You can eat well follow a healthy eating plan strive for a “healthy lifestyle” but non of this is worth half as much effort or time if you forget to work on a healthy heart a healthy mind and spirit.
Work on the inside meaning your body mind and soul! As well as the outside.
We must rid the body of all negative energy negative mindsets. Take the time to nourish your mind, feed your heart the right things and work out the things which are suppressing us.
So this is more than another meme or quote or thing to share it is in fact a reality!
I feel a video coming on!
Remember to stay blessed!
Remember to Stay fabulous!

I absolutely love Janet Jackson’s new music video. Not much lyrics to the song but the vibe, culture and visuals enhance the message.
