5 for under £5

World Book Day is just around the corner so I thought I would dedicate my 5 for under £5 this week to World Book Day costumes. These costumes can be purchased off Amazon with free delivery when you spend over £10. 

Wilbers Hare Kids Costume (4-5 Years) - £3.01
I simply adore this costume and if it had been in Maxwell's size, I would have purchased it. I think this outfit would be perfect for any Alice In Wonderland fan. You can add accessories to it to make your child look unique.

Great Pretenders Princess Dress (Medium) - £4.25
Every little girl loves dressing up as a Princess and World Book day is a great day to dress up as a princess. There are many princess's in books however a few of my favorites are in Princess And The Frog and Sleeping Beauty.

Rubies Victorian Pick Pocket costume Victorian Pick Pocket (Medium) - £4.97
I am a huge fan of this type of costumes as I love how unique the costume looks. This costume is perfect if your child wants to look like Oliver Twist this World Book Day. Add some dirt on your child's face and your child will look the bee's knees in this costume.

Witch Cat Costume Medium 7-9 Years - £4.99
Going as a witch on World Book Day seems a popular choice. There are plenty of books which feature  witches however a few of my favorites include Winnie The Witch and Room on the Broom.

Red and White Striped Children's Shirt (6-9 years) - £4.73
A popular and easy choice on World Book day seems to be Where's Wally. This costume is easy to do when you get a red and white shirt, team with a plain pair of trousers, a black and red hat and glasses and your child will stand out from the crowd.

Stephanie's Going To Be Dancing For Comic Relief’s Danceathon

Today I am bringing you a guest post from Stephanie who blogs over at Life At 139a Stephanie is taking part in Team Honk’s charity fundraising effort in the next couple of weeks for Comic Relief. She has written this post to raise awareness for what she is doing! Please read her post below and give generously to a great cause!

This year I've joined Team Honk to help change the world by dancing. We're doing that by dancing for six hours at Wembley at the Red Nose Day Danceathon raising money for Comic Relief next Sunday. Yes, six hours. Yes. That's a long time to dance. I'm thinking of it as five games of netball and that helps as does knowing the money Team Honk raise will help bring about lasting change.

Comic Relief does fantastic work across Africa, and they help people here in the UK too. This PDF from Comic Relief shows where money raised between 2009 and 2013 has been spent in the UK. In that time Comic Relief allocated £110m to over 5, 500 projects across the UK and they're one of the UK's biggest independent fundraisers. That's both shocking and great at the same time isn't it?

Comic Relief have supported the Time to Change campaign to help end discrimination towards people with mental health problems. And thanks to that campaign, 1.5 million people in England said their attitude towards people with mental health problems had improved. Mental health charities, such as MIND and The Young Minds Trust and all the work they do are especially important to me, that's why I'm super-pleased that Betfair have sponsored me and helped me smash my fundraising target.

Comic Relief help people all over the world who live incredibly tough lives and the money I can raise will help change their lives forever. To me that seems a brilliant thing to be part of.

And for that, six hours is nothing.

From me, and on behalf of those you'll help, thank you.

Win £20 ASOS Vouchers With The Emigration Group

The Emigration Group was established in 1992 with the sole aim of helping people achieve a new life overseas. The Emigration Group are a UK company dealing primarily with British and other English speaking migrants wishing to emigrate to Australia and New Zealand.
Before Ben and I had Maxwell, there was always one thing which I dreamed of and that was emigrating to another country. I always quite fancied moving to Australia as I knew a number of people who had moved over there and the move had transformed their lives.

I was always interested to hear about the new places old friends had visited over in Australia and I was always interested to hear about what jobs they were in and how there lives were progressing. I heard many successful stories about how life changing their move had been.

Maxwell is now 3 and the dream of emigrating has been put on hold however one day in the future we will try and make that dream a reality. When we are ready, I will be getting in touch with The Emigration Group to help with the move.

To celebrate how wonder The Emigration Group are, Mummy To The Max has teamed up with them to offer one lucky Mummy To The Max reader the chance to win £20 worth of ASOS vouchers - a perfect amount to buy a new swimming costume or new swim shorts for the Australian weather! All you need to do to enter this competition is enter the simple rafflecopter below. Good Luck!
