Don't miss a thing

No, you didn’t mis-read that…

To celebrate Father’s Day, we’ve partnered with the wonderful Lifecake to give 1 lucky dad a Canon DSLR & A PIXMA MG6850, to help capture precious memories of his family.

For those of you who don’t know, Lifecake is an APP that provides a beautiful way to collate all your memories. And as all us parents know, everyday, there are hundreds of moments you wish you could keep forever. The Lifecake APP records how old your child is in the picture, the day it was taken etc and presents them in a timeline so you can flick through easily.

There are also loads of other features to the APP around sharing those photo’s with your family. If you have relatives around the country or even around the world and want to keep them updated with your family life, it’s easy to do so.

Plus, there are some really cool additions coming soon to the APP!

It’s definitely worth downloading and checking out.
