Para'Kito - Natural Mosquito Protection and Giveaway

Mosquitoes can be pesky and annoying - there are many products on the market but Para'Kito is a natural protection to help with Mosquito Protection.

Para'Kito currently has two products on the market - A Band which can be worn on the wrist or ankle as well as a Clip which can be attached to your Backpack, Pram or even your shoes if you don't like a band to be around your wrist or ankle.

How does Para'Kito Work?
The Para'Kito pellets diffuse a blend of 7 essential oils extracted from plants which naturally protect from mosquitoes

Pellets last 15 consecutive days and is perfect for individuals that suffer from skin allergies and irritations, and due to the natural products the Para'Kito products are safe to use on pregnant women and small children. 

Para'Kito will be the only product I use from now on, I have extremely sensitive skin and with the pellet sitting on the band or clip it does not come into direct contact with your skin, eliminating all discomfort people have when using other products available on the market. I also love how easy it is to be protected from Mosquitoes, it is a matter of placing your band on and walking out the door and the natural products allows a gorgeous aroma which is not overpowering. 

Para'Kito Mosquito Protection Band

Para'Kito Mosquito Protection Bands come in 6 x Bold and Colourful Colours or 6 x Graffic Band Designs to choose from - perfect for each member of the family. 

Each pack comes with one band and 2 x Pellets which each last 15 days 

The Protection Band can be hand washed with light detergent (with pellet removed). Pellets are easy to install simply remove the pellet from the packaging and place in the band pocket

Book Review - Love,Nina : A Nanny Writes Home by Nina Stibbe

In 1982 Nina took on a job as the Nanny to two little boys in Gloucester Crescent in London. 

Throughout her years as a Nanny she sent numerous letters to her sister Victoria detailing her highs and lows of her life

 Love, Nina is a collection of letters sent to Victoria and although we never get to see the letter replied to by Victoria we get an insight into their discussions through Nina's next letter to Victoria.

Nina immediately is part of Mary-Kate and her two sons family sharing their dinner room discussions, parking incidents in London and varied childish conversation with Sam and Will

Nina shares the good and the bad throughout the book and series of Letters, The book is separated into two part - Moving In and Moving On (don't worry I have not given away any of the story)

I loved the relay of conversations between Sam and Will, there were some classic lines and I found myself laughing imagining two little boys sitting at the breakfast bench chatting away. Nina was charming, funny and witty throughout the whole book

Love, Nina flowed really well and I could picture the family life Nina got to be part of but also they way Mary-Kate, Sam and Will's got to become part of Nina's Life.

Love, Nina: A Nanny Writes Home is released 22nd April 2014

Please note I received an advance copy of Love, Nina: A Nanny Writes Home to read and review from Little, Brown and Company
