Since we moved house last year, I have been looking around for prints, photos and pictures for my daughters room. We obviously left behind her decorated nursery which was fine for the first 18 months of her life, but since we moved here we haven’t decorated her room with the baby stick on stickers.
So the opportunity to have a print designed for her was great. Created by Magic sent us this gorgeous floral Initial baby print, all with her birth details on. All I had to do was send the correct details, like her first name, date of birth, hospital, weight and time of birth over to them and by magic! The print arrived in the post!
I have used a steamer saucepan set that you use on the hob, but never tried an electric steamer. When I was asked to share my thoughts on the Sensio Steamer I was eager to try it out.
Steaming food is much healthier than frying and you don’t lose the goodness out of the food like boiling. It works by continuously boiling water, releasing steam that thoroughly cooks the food in the baskets above without the use of extra oils or fats. This also retains vitamins and nutrients and makes it a far healthier choice than frying or roasting.
One of baby girl’s first phrases was “cup of tea?” So being asked to share our thoughts on the Mr Kipling Tea Set was perfect! I’m a huge fan of Mr Kipling’s cakes, French Fancies being my favourite although Cherry Bakewells come a close second. Mmmm shame I don’t have any in the kitchen cupboard at the moment!
Everyone adores Mr Kipling’s cakes! Featuring replicas of the much-loved cakes including French Fancies, Battenberg and Cherry Bakewells for arranging on the two-tiered cake stand. Each cake features a shaped bottom for children to locate the correct corresponding shape on the easily assembled cake stand – so not only is it a fantastic role play toy, it has shape-sorting fun too!
I’m a busy working mum, with little time for myself. So when Treatbox got in contact asking if I would like to try out one of their monthly Treatboxes I thought why not? I think I deserve a treat every now and again. Plus I have a sweet tooth! To be honest I love all subscription boxes and I love to receive them for birthdays and Christmases. I love the surprise element of it arriving through the post. I’m happy to get any subscription box to be honest and there are loads out there including ones with healthy snacks like Earlybird.
Anyway sometimes we need a little sweetness in our lives, and great thing about Treatbox is that it arrives straight through into your letterbox. You can choose from different selections, such as chocolate lovers, candy lovers, sweet shop, liquorice lovers, Treatbox full of bars and a Belgian chocolate selection.
Potty training – yes it’s nearly that time. For weeks baby girl has been showing the signs that she’s ready. Examples being taking her clothes off, saying wee wee, hiding behind the sofa to have a pooh and having a dry nappy for periods of time. In fact when she had a horrible virus last year, my GP wanted a wee sample from her and I actually got her to have a wee in the potty, so I know she could probably do it!
To get us ready for potty training, we have been very lucky to receive the Bumbo Step ‘n’ Potty to review and help us on the journey. The Step ‘n’ Potty is 3 products in one. Firstly you have the potty, but that also converts to a toilet training seat. In fact the seat fits most adult toilets. Then you have the base of the potty that is also a step stool, that can be used to reach the toilet. Having a step stool is most useful in the kitchen or in the bathroom for little ones to reach the sink to wash their hands. So when potty training is done, you can still make use of the Step ‘n’ Potty for many years.
I remember when I was young having those slap bands you used to slap around your wrist. Well now you can get the Slappie watches, for kids and adults. Slappie is a UK company that won investment on Dragon’s Den in 2016. In fact I actually remember seeing the Slappie on there. Dragon’s Den is one of our favourite programmes. I love to see what people come up with next!
Getting back to the Slappie, they come in large and small sizes. We were sent the small sizes in Neon Pink and Snow White to review and share our thoughts.
