COMPETITION: Win A Star with Star Name Registry

I have a superb and unique competition for you all today, and I’m really excited!! are offering you the chance to win your very own star, personalised to exactly your wishes. This one off, official and unique prize is not to be missed.

Our Stars


At Christmas my Father-In-Law got the girls a star each as their Christmas gift. I cried and cried and cried. This was such a beautiful idea and something that was a completely new gift idea for me. The girls are still little, but Willow understood exactly what it meant; Grandad had bought her a star for Christmas. Her very own star, that was hers forever. My 3 daughters all have their very own special place in the most beautiful thing known to man… the sky.

I had a superb idea that I would like to name a star after my husband, as an extra special gift for him. But then I realised that I felt left out as every member of the family would have their own star… except for me :'( So, I had a better idea (and a slightly selfish one!) I would name a star to celebrate the marriage of Jay and myself. Now, that was cool!


I couldn’t wait until our wedding anniversary which is all the way in December to present the gift to him (also I had this competition to host!) so when the post-man arrived with a parcel last Saturday, I knew exactly what it was in the package and I let him open it. This time it was his turn to cry!

I ordered the Extra Bright Star package, Which comes in a gorgeous presentation box with lovely wooden roses and leaflets that explain exactly what our star is, where it is and what it all means. The gift was beautiful and absolutely perfect. The official certificate also arrives in a lovely silver frame too, which makes it ready to display. We went out and purchased some silver frames for our other certificates so that they all matched and would look amazing hung together on the landing wall.

My personal message: You are what happened, when I wished upon a star.

About Star Name Registry

Star-Name-Registry is an easy to use website where you can name a star visible in the UK for someone special. Naming a star is as easy as filling in a short form and then waiting for your pack in the post. When you purchase a star, you star will be logged into the official star name registry record. No star will ever be named twice and you can rest assured that the star is unique to you.

Naming a star is easy. You simply choose what package you would like to buy, what your choice of name shall be for the star, a memorable date, which constellation you would like your star to be in and a personalised message. Filling out the form took a few minutes (I had a browse through the constellations and their meanings for a while) and double checked my spelling!

All star packs are sent out same day via first class delivery, by Royal Mail for FREE if placed before 2:45pm. Expect 1-3 working days for stars to arrive. You can choose guaranteed next day delivery too, but there is an extra charge for this.

A standard star package costs just £14.99 for entry into the star registry, an A4 certificate of authentication, sky atlas star maps and a confirmation letter. My Extra Bright Star package above costs £44.99 and includes registry, framed A4 certificate, silver presentation box, blue tissue paper, confirmation letter, Star maps atlas, your extra bright star gift explained.

There are 6 different packages to choose from so there really is a perfect gift for everyone to suit all budgets.


Star-name-registry have given me the chance to treat my readers to a very special prize. You could win your very own star, logged on the star registry, an A4 certificate and constellation map. You can choose to name your star after whoever you like (or name it whatever you like!) and would make the perfect birthday, anniversary or even a memorial gift for someone special.

WIN- Tickets To The Baby Show and an Amazing Poddle Pod Bundle!

I am so excited about this wonderful giveaway I have for you all this week! The Newhouse Family are massive fans of The Baby Show, and we can often be found scooting up and down the stall, oohing and cooing at all of the amazing brands and offers available over the weekend. This March get ready to enjoy a fantastic shopping experience at the UK’s leading parenting and pregnancy event of the year. From Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th of March The Baby Show with MadeForMums will be taking place at the ExCel in London. You will find everything you could ever dream of for bump, baby and you- all under one roof, for 3 whole days.


We last visited the Baby Show at the ExCel in 2015, and we were amazed by the ease and whole experience that the show had to offer. You can read our review of the show here.

The London ExCel Baby Show 2017

There will be over 200 exhibitors and a huge array of essential baby products from trusted brands as well as the latest, exciting innovations. All of the major retailers will be there (don’t think little ‘pop up’ stalls… some exhibitor stands are as large as full sized high street shops!) alongside market leading brands such as iCandy, Stokke, UppaBaby, Avent, Chicco, MAM, Nuby and high end Italian brand Peg Perego who will be launching in the UK at the show!

The Main stage sees a wonderful line up of speakers with MadeForMums including experts from the world of breastfeeding, sleep and nutrition, as well as real life parents giving their first-hand stories and advice, including Giovanna Fletcher and Clemmie Hooper. You can book 15 minute private appointments with The Baby Show and One To One With The Experts Area- just simply book your appointment on the day!


If your hands are too full to carry all of your shopping, take advantage of the free Emma’s Diary Collect-By-Car service where you can drop off all of your purchases and pick up at home time! Bringing the kids? Use The Baby Show’s FREE crèche so you can have a little shop in peace, and the kids can play with some fun toys under a safe and very close eye.

It really is a must-see event for all expectant and well experienced parents alike. You will find me at The Baby Show on the Saturday, so if you spot me carrying lots of bags and my husband carrying lots of bags, do come up and say ‘Hi’! I’m normally loitering around the cloth nappy stalls, or stroking expensive pushchairs/slings.



We’ve teamed up with The Baby Show to give away a pair of tickets worth £20 each and a Poddle Pod bundle which includes an award winning Poddle Pod, a removable cover and a storage bag worth £49.99. How amazing is that?! That’s a prize worth £89.99, don’t say I never treat you guys 😉

Poddle Pod is a gorgeous little place for babies to nap.
