As couples prepare for a Valentine’s Day at home and have to think outside the box for ways to celebrate, Sea Change Wine is calling on planet-conscious couples to extend their love to the worlds’ oceans by choosing a bottle of its new Prosecco Rosé. The eco-friendly fizz is from the picturesque Veneto region of North-Eastern Italy, evoking memories of sun-drenched holidays and the promise of sunnier days to come. Its red fruit vibrancy and refined flavour is the ideal pair for light pasta dishes and seafood.
The sustainable wine brand is helping us make a difference this Valentine’s Day by giving back to the planet with every bottle sold – proving we can all make a difference from home by raising a glass to our oceans and sea animals who are also suffering in the wake of this pandemic. More emphasis on hygiene means that more single use plastic bottles have been used, along with disposable masks and gloves. All these are making their way into our oceans.
The Sea Change Wine Prosecco Rosé is also part of a special ‘Only Rosé’ pack made up of the Provence Rosé, Prosecco Rosé and the Château Canet Rosé. The pack is £40 RRP including free delivery to mainland UK for a limited period – perfect for the Valentine’s weekend.

Banksy is a world-famous graffiti artist who secretly spray paints pictures on streets and walls while no one is watching!
His works are often about politics, war, and other important things, but he also likes to paint rats. Rats scurry around and hide, often creating a bit of a stir, just like he does! Millions of people know his work but no one really knows who Bansky is as his true identity is a secret. In this brilliant children’s book, Fausto Gilberti brings life, intrigue, and whimsy to the mysterious story of one of the most important contemporary artists of our time.
Is this a suitcase? A bed? An elephant? Each spread in this engaging board book is actually something else entirely, sparking imaginations and encouraging the storytellers in readers of all ages. Turn the page and find a foldable shirt; then, turn to discover a flip phone that you can open, close, and “dial” to call your friends and family! The result prompts children to think and play creatively with other objects in their daily lives.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT THIS WEEK
The ergonomic design of the baby carrier ensures that the baby’s spine and legs are fully supported in the most comfortable and ideal position for a healthy spine and hip development. As they aren’t lying flat or on a hard surface, the natural position they are in allows them to make movements that encourage muscle tone and a sense of balance needed to sit, stand and walk.
IZMI Baby have made babywearing so accessible, with a range of carriers for all budgets.
