When I was offered the chance to review BHS’s school uniform range I may have done a small fist pump because as it happens, buying the final bits and bobs we needed for September has been hanging about on my to do list for a while. I was also very keen to try an alternative brand to Clarks shoes for reasons already explained (ahem).
When the package arrived in the post I was immediately impressed with the clothes but I had one small, but very real worry. How was I going to persuade the boy to take off the Buzz Lightyear birthday pajamas he has pretty much worn non stop for two weeks? The answer – Tangfastics! Come to think of it most of life’s problems could be solved with the adequate provision of Tangfastics, but I guess that’s another blog post.
Anyway I needn’t have worried because check out the results! Man alive, BHS’s ad agency is going to be quaking in its boots; how the hell are they going to be able to justify the hundreds of thousands they charge in fees now? All they need is me, my iPhone, a garden wall and a kid who loves Tangfastics :)
In all honesty i was really impressed with the quality of the clothes we received. The T-Shirts and trousers were probably on par with what you could get elsewhere for a similar price but we both LOVED the super cool coat by Duck & Dodge (£22) and the trainer style shoes which looked and apparently felt very comfy (£14). I am also very proud of myself for finding a much cheaper alternative to Clarks!
Disclosure: We were send products from the BHS school uniform range for the purpose of this review but all thoughts and opinions are entirely our own. If we didn’t like them I would say! I did buy my own Tangfastics though. Yum.
**************P.S. I have a new book OUT NOW! You can nab it on Amazon here or in your lovely local bookshop :)
F certainly looks like he should be on a bill board! X
Ha ha thank you! Think he knows it too :)
He’s definitely a little model in the making. Oh, that reminds me I have a bag of Tangtastics downstairs, a long forgotten reward for the kids at school which I came across when tidying :-) xx
How can you have Tangfastics in your house and not know?! Shame on you ;)
He looks so smart, and like a proper little model! I may have to try the tangfastics trick if it works so well
Model in the making there, clearly! :)
What a little model- he is totally working the camera there! x
I can’t believe how grown up he looks – and definitely rocking the modelling!! Hurrah for Tangfastics!
What with your boy and my girl? They will be models of the future I tell thee! Beaut pics and he proper looks like you hun here xxx
I thought of you and your girl when I was doing this babs! We should team up they could be the next brangelina ;)
Such a cute jacket. Very stylish. I still haven’t done the back-to-school shopping yet. Whoops. :( #badmummy
He looks so like you! That is such a cute jacket. He’ll break hearts at school! x
So cute! They ought to get him to model too ;) xx
aaargh you’ve reminded me, I still need to get shoes for Austin! Less than a week to go – eeek. We’ll check out this range.
