Creating Simple Logo’s With LogoJoy

I’ve been creating simple logos with Logojoy who offer a logo designer with a range of packages available. Logojoy would have been perfect when I first started blogging! Trying to find a quick & simple way to create a logo for the blog was quite difficult. I wanted something that stood out whilst being simple & purple (of course!).

Creating Simple Logos

Logojoy’s logo generator comes with plenty of fonts, colours, designs, layouts & logo’s. When you land on their homepage you asked for your company name to get started. You are then given a page of logos where you are asked to like at least 5 or more you like.

Pick 5 Logos

There’s several colours to pick from next followed by the option to add a slogan. You can then pick 5 appropriate symbols for your logo. Most are quite plain compared to a lot of the colourfully illustrated logo’s I’ve seen. Whilst the options are quite plain they are perfect for a first logo.

Once you have made all your selections LogoJoy then generate several logo options for you to browse with the option to browse more & favourite those you like. You can then edit the fonts, sizing, positionings & symbols before deciding if you want to keep & download the logo.

Generated Logos

The main thing I love about Logojoy is the fact that you can edit and create logo’s for free! Only paying once you are completely happy with your choices.

Personalised Nametags From My Nametags & A Set To Giveaway!

My Nametags sent both girls a set off personalised nametags which they both designed themselves! Nametags are a must especially when you have children of school age. Eva is known for losing her School Uniform and we have spent hundreds replacing it all. Whilst that does seem to have stopped this year I’m still not taking any chances so I jumped at the chance to review a set of nametags for both girls.

Ordering From My Nametags

Ordering personalised nametags from My Nametags is nice and simple with just a few steps. My Nametags have a range of options and nametags available including Design your own for £11.95 per set of tags + £1.00 P&P.

Moving on to the design of the sticker you can pick an icon from an extensive list. You can then pick a background and add to your basket.

Our Personalised Nametags

Eva’s Nametags

Eva - nametags

Eva choose to add her first & last name along with her class in the handwriting font in pink. She then chose a dog icon which reminds her of Saphy along with a flowery pink background. They turned out really well and she loves them. We have already started adding them to her uniform & school bag and they look great. I’ve blurred out the girls last names for this post.

Izzy’s Nametags

personalised nametags

Izzy decided on her name in handwriting font in pink too. She then choose a strawberry on a field background. Whilst Izzy isn’t in nursery yet nametags are still useful especially for things like books! She couldn’t wait to stick her name in her new Peppa Pig’s adventure Brochure book.

Eva loved the Funny Eye Glasses and has added them to her dressing up collection. The Glow in the dark Slime caught Eva’s attention too.

PJ Masks – Time To Be A Hero

We were sent the new PJ Masks – Time To Be A Hero DVD which is being launched on 30th October, just in time for Halloween! PJ Masks – Time To Be A Hero will be available on DVD, Digital Downloads & On Demand for RRP £9.99. You can also pre-order on Amazon for £7.99.

PJ Masks - Time Top Be A Hero DVD

As day turns to night the heroes put on their pyjamas and activate their amulets when something goes awry in the city. They magically transform into their dynamic superhero alter egos: Catboy, Owlette & Gekko becoming the fantastically unstoppable PJ Masks team! PJ Masks is a hugely popular preschool TV show being released on DVD for the first time ever. I’m sure lot’s of mini superheroes will be as excited as Izzy is!

PJ Masks – Time To Be A Hero Features 6 Adventures

Perfect for young super heroes PJ Masks -Time To Be A Hero features six fan-favourite episodes following the adventures of Connor, Amaya & Greg. The DVD runs for 72 minutes and includes the following 6 adventures.

  1. Speak UP, Gekko! – When Romeo starts using Gekko’s voice for no good, Gekko has to get over his stage fright & get his voice back.
  2. Catboy & Master Fang’s Sword – Night Ninja has stolen Master Fang’s prized sword and Catboy wants it back, but he will have to learn not to let his anger get in the way first.
  3. Owlette and the Giving Owl – Owlette’s prized ‘Giving Owl’ statue is stolen by Luna Girl to decorate her new headquarters. If Owlette doesn’t learn its better to give than to receive, Catboy and Gekko could become trapped in Luna Girl’s newest HQ for good.
  4. Catboy Vs. Robo-Cat – Catboy has to get Amaya’s and Greg’s stolen superhero pyjamas back from Romeo so they can transform into Owlette and Gekko and help him save the day… unless he learns that you don’t need superpowers to be a hero.
  5. Catboy’s Flying Fiasco – When Catboy receives a scooter as a gift from an unknown aunt, something smells fishy. But when he can use it to fly, its too good to leave at home. Too bad that it’s really a ‘gift’ from… Luna girl!
  6. Owlette and the Flash Flip Trip – Using his newest machine, Romeo erases all the stories from the books and replaces them with pictures of himself. Rather than relying on her own skills, Owlette plans to use the moves of her favourite comic character, Flossy Flash, to save the day.

Izzy loves PJ Masks - Time To Be A Hero

Izzy’s Thoughts

Izzy loves PJ Masks after discovering them in a book & she now loves them. Izzy says she love, love, loves the PJ Masks DVD and the episodes on it! She also reminded me the DVD comes with some PJ Mask stickers too which she says are ‘Super cool!’. Izzy loves PJ Masks and the release of this DVD means she can watch it at home whenever she wants. Perfect for keeping her entertained over half term.

PJ Masks - Time To Be A Hero DVD & Stickers

If you have a PJ Masks fan I would definitely recommend buying a copy. It bought me a much needed hour of peace. Izzy has already asked to watch it again so I can see it becoming a firm favourite. She is surprisingly saving some of her stickers for something special. I’m hoping it’s not my desk again haha!

Do you have a PJ Masks Fan that would love this DVD? Who is their favourite PJ Masks Superhero?

Personalised Mugs From Brinley Williams

I ordered 3 personalised mugs from Brinley Williams this week and I am in love with them! Brinley Williams offer a range of fantastic personalised products including over 180 personalised mugs. Personalised products like this are a great way to show off your personality at home or in the office. The personalised mugs make great gifts too at £9.95 fitting most budgets.

Brinley Williams Personalised Mugs

Ordering Personalised Mugs

The personalisation options vary depending on the design chosen & include colourful designs, font colours, fonts, text & more. I had a good look through the personalised mugs on the Brinley Williams site before I decided which mugs to order.

Brinley Williams site is quick and easy to navigate and personalisation takes no time at all. I made my order and then received an email to double check one of the personalised mugs had intentionally been left without personalisation. Once I had confirmed the order was correct, because the Mr is a grumpy git (haha!) my order was processed.

My Personalised Mugs

The personalised mugs arrived 3 days after I ordered them, well packaged & in PURPLE packaging. Obviously that made me even happier! I am so happy with how all 3 mugs turned out.

 

Obviously the ‘Relentlessly Purple’ Mug is for myself. I can’t review mugs without a cup of tea first! I was over the moon to discover I could use different fonts and could make mine much more like my blog logo. Perfect for IG photo’s. I couldn’t wait to have a cup of tea and of course pose with my Relentlessly Purple mug, even if I do look rough at 7am!

The Red Campervan mug without personalisation is of course for the fussy Mr. He loves the design & the fact he didn’t have to have his name on it! He isn’t keen on personalised gifts & it is beyond awkward trying to find anything he likes at all. The Mr seems really pleased with his mug though and has already used it too!

personalised campervan mug

This colourful cat mug is for my Brother with his & his cats name on. I’m sure Alex will love his mug and I am so excited to give it to him. I am hiding this one away until Christmas for him though.

Personalised cat mug

Ordering personalised mugs from Brinley Williams is such a quick and great service. I’ve added their sirte to my bookmarks for future gifts buying.

Personalised Calendar From Potato Print

I received a personalised calendar from Potato Print who offer a fantastic range of calendars. Potato Print offer a whole range of personalised gifts but I especially love the calendars. Each year for Christmas I get the girls a calendar for their room which they love. Buying their favourite characters isn’t that exciting but they will LOVE discovering pictures of themselves each month. I also think personalised gifts mean much more.

Ordering

The ordering process is so simple. Potato Print offer desk calendars, wall calendars and calendars for parents at £14 each. Postage is £6 no matter how many items you order which I think is great. Each calendar has several options for you to choose from. I selected a wall calendar as the girls already have a hook to hang their calendars.

There are 3 options for wall calendars, adventure, art gallery and geometric. I went for geometric as I love the way it’s laid out. We’ve never had a personalised calendar before so I was quite excited to fill the calendar with all my favourite photo’s.

Personalised calendar Geometric wall calendar - A3Personalising

Once I selected the A3 geometric personalised calendar I was taken to the product editor where I could upload the photo’s I wanted to use and position them how I wanted too. I managed to fit in a few themed ones like the girls birthday months, Halloween and Christmas. Once I had filled up the calendar and was happy with it I ordered the calendar which arrived less than a week later!

Our Personalised Calendar

Our Personalised Calendar

Our personalised calendar arrived well packaged in bubble wrap and cardboard and arrived signed for. I couldn’t wait to open it up and take a look at the end result. I am really pleased with how the calendar has turned out and can’t wait to give it to the girls as a joint present for their bedroom!
