Blogiversary Giveaway - Win An IMO Q2 Plus mobile phone

*AD - This is a PR collaberation.*

It's been five whole years, since I first started to type out on an old laptop to share our lives with family who are across oceans from us. A way for them to see how Dylan was growing, changing and learning as well as what he loved and enjoyed. It's amazing to think that here we are five years later and so much more has come of our little blog, it's grown, changed and is a little passion that I enjoy in between the parenting and housework and all the other responsibility of life. It's a place where I have a collection of all the best parts of parenting we've experienced along with our pictures, memories and so much more. 

 To help celebrate Us Two Plus You being five years old this week we will be sharing a few giveaways for our readers! We're starting off today with an exciting one as I have an IMO Q2 Plus mobile phone to giveaway to one lucky reader.

IMO is a mobile phone company who want to give their customers the best of what they really need from a mobile phone without the hefty price tag for gizmos and gadgets you might not need. They aim to give people the connections they need to the world efficently and within a reasonable budget. 

Their latest model has launched this month, the IMO Q2 Plus mobile phone is now available in shops. It's the ideal phone to give to children as their first handset. Which is perfect for parents like me who worry about what will happen when it comes to them wanting a phone for themselves. 

The IMO Q2 Plus is built to be both stylish and simple in it's design with clean lines and one tone of colour throughout. The simplicity doesn't end there either, with Android Go as it's operating system it's a familiar framework that so many of us are used to. With the welcome effect of using less app storage space on the phone as a whole! A total win for parents as we all know our children want so many apps on their phones at once.  

The actual processing power of the phone isn't too shabby either with a 1.4 GHz quad core processor the IMO Q2 Plus offers a smooth ride in terms of performance. You'll be able to search the web, upload or download with ease. 

With a 4 inch screen and dimentions of 124mm x 34mm the IMO Q2 is perfect for small hands to keep hold of and easily use the phone. Plus you can choose between black, blue and pink colours. 

With front and rear facing cameras you can snap some photographs to share with your friends and family too. 

It's perfect for exploring with or for anyone going off the grid since it has some pretty astonishing stand by battery life, it last for up to 15 days! That is all down to the 1500mAh battery giving you all the power you'll need. 

You can purchase the IMO Q2 Plus for just £47 with Vodafone (£37 for the phone and £10 top up voucher). The IMO Q2 Plus is also available from Asda and Argos.

Now for the giveaway! You could be in with the chance to win your own IMO Q2 Plus by entering using the Gleam widget below.

Photo of the week {07/10/2019}

This last week saw Avery turn 5 months! (I'll be doing his update next week) I always try to remember to take his monthly photos with his little milestone wooden plaques. When I do we take a little extra time and take some photographs without the plaques so I will have a few nice photographs for each month. I did the same with Scarlet when she was a baby and I have a fair few of Dylan from before I started writing Us Two Plus You. This is my favourite from this months little photo session.

What We're Reading - The Boy Who Said No! by Charlie Griffin

We usually share Dylan's favourite in our What We're Reading posts and this month we're changing things up a little, this month I've decided to share a favourite book for Scarlet. Up until now it has mainly been Dylan who reads or shows a big interest in books that have a story behind them. Scarlet usually enjoys baby books and touchy feel books but recently she has taken to wanting to hear the story too. So I am totally embracing it and we found the perfect book for her this month.

The book that Scarlet has fallen in love with over the last month is The Boy Who Said No! by Charlie Griffin. It's about a little boy called Max who has learnt to say the word no and he has decided that 'No!' is the only answer he wants to say. His poor Mum has her own plan to stop Max from saying 'No' to everything (even cake!). So one morning Mum puts her plan in action with the hope that Max won't be the boy who says no! any longer.

I'm pretty sure every parent out there can totally relate to this book and that wonderful NO! phase our little ones go through. It's a phase I am all too familiar with since Scarlet is going through it right now right now. Everything is no, she'll tell me no to getting dressed while putting her clothes on. It's a time in parenting when you don't see the end in sight. I love that this book adds a  bit of humour to the no phase.

Throughout the book you can find fun, colourful illustrations by Kathryn Durst. The illustrations really embrace the fact that Max loves to scream 'NO!' and he usually appears with a big screaming mouth which perfectly matches his bright red curly hair. The background used throughout the book mutes the room and objects that aren't in the fore front which I like. It means that Scarlet pays closer attention to Max, his mum and what is happening in the photo.

Scarlet loves Max and she quite happily shouts NO! along with him throughout the story. She will always choose The Boy Who Said No! from the book shelf and it never fails to make her laugh.

If you are going through or even still remember going through the infamous No phase with your children then this book is perfect for you. You never know maybe you could try out his Mum's idea and see if it will work for you.

You can purchase The Boy Who Said No! by Charlie Griffin for £2 or as part of The Works 6 for £10 deal.
