A few days ago Rosamund Pike was spotted enjoying some beach time with her little one.. Nothing odd about that, right? Well guess what? It's the first celebrity spotting of the amazing CYBEX PRIAM and I had some serious pram envy seeing this photo... 

Want to know more about the PRIAM?

Both a functional pushchair and a design object on wheels, the CYBEX PRIAM combines beautiful form with exceptional function. Extremely sturdy and versatile yet incomparably light, the single frame fulfils three functions, taking babies from their first months right up to early childhood. The PRIAM can be used as a pram with a matching carrycot, as a travel system with one of the award-winning CYBEX infant car seats, and later as a luxurious buggy, that can be either forward or backward facing. There are wheels to suit every surface, including sandy beaches, while for snow, ice and young siblings, the PRIAM is equipped with ski attachments and a Kid Board. 


Rosamund Pike is not the only celebrity who has discovered the CYBEX brand. Other famous fans include Sarah Jessica Parker, Gwen Stefani, Rihanna, Katherine Heigl, Matt Damon, Gisele B√ľndchen, Amber Rose, Fergie, Michelle Hunziker and Natalie Portman.

Allergy Awareness Week










As it's Allergy Awareness Week I was sent out some tasty teatime treats from Mrs Crimble's to try. I have to say we all enjoyed them very much!

Did you know...?

According to the NHS, 50% of young people (18 or younger) in Britain suffer from one or more allergies* and more than a third of all parents believe that their child has a food allergy or sensitivity of some sort**. 

Nearly a third (31%) of households contain someone who has a food allergy or intolerance, the majority being self-diagnosed.***

Over 1 in 5 (22%) of the population consider themselves to have a food allergy or intolerance (an increase of 5% compared to 2011).***

Happily though, Mrs Crimble’s, the much loved gluten free British bakery brand, is proving that people wishing to avoid gluten in their diet can still enjoy snacks, cakes and other treats that taste every bit as yummy as the mainstream alternatives. In fact, in some cases, Mrs Crimble’s products are stocked on the mainstream as well as the free from aisle.

Mrs Crimble’s products enable people with allergies to enjoy products with all of the taste and none of the gluten – ensuring families and friends can enjoy great food together.

* According to a recent survey 
by the charity, Allergy UK
** According to the NHS Choices Website
*** YouGov: Understanding food allergies and intolerances – the consumer viewpoint (September 2014)

Mrs Crimble's products can be found in all good independent farm shops, health stores, delicatessens and supermarkets such as Sainsbury’s, Asda, Waitrose, Morrisons, Co-op, and Tesco.

Out'n'About Nipper V3 double


































Sadly I never had a chance to use this amazing pushchair as my older son didn't need the ride by the time baby was born. I only tried it out in our own garden and it was incredibly light to push just like the Nipper single was. It's also one of the narrowest and lightest double pushchairs on the market! It's only 72cm wide and weighs only 12,5kg. It's quite large folded but this is to be expected from a side by side double. The seats are very good size and as you can see my 3 year old fitted brilliantly. Both seats recline independently to a full flat position for a newborn baby. The V3 version I had has one canopy to shade both children which isn't ideal but Out'n'About changed it on the V4 and you can now have 2 independent canopies for each child. There's also an adapter to attach one or 2 carrycots for younger passengers. Storage on board is as always with the Nippers great, there's mesh pockets on the back of each seat, pockets on the canopy and also the possibility to attach a very large shopping basket under the pushchair. Some of the other features include a height adjustable handle and gate opening bumper bar. Again with the V3 version there's a manual lock to keep the pushchair folded, the new V4 has an automatic lock to make the whole folding process easier.


This was our own pushchair and I wasn't asked to write about it. Out'n'About are one of my favourite brands and no one has to ask me to share the love for their Nippers!


BundleBean 
footmuff





I already reviewed the BundleBean a couple of yours ago so just wanted to show you one of the newest designs - Elephants that we really love. It's a very versatile footmuff and I found myself using it all the time this past few months - on a pushchair, car seat and our baby carrier. It keeps the baby warm and looks fantastic!

Here's the link to my review:

Mad Dash Wooden Playhouse





















































The playhouse was a 3rd birthday gift to our son. He's been playing in it for months now and I really wanted to show it off :) 
It's not huge and I can see that we'll have to make some changes to it in a couple of years to adapt it for our growing boy but overall we're very pleased with it. The assembly was easy enough as well. The playhouse has survived autumn and winter with some very heavy winds and lots of rain and is still standing intact!

Buy yours here: http://www.gardenbuildingsdirect.co.uk/Wooden-Playhouses/The-Mad-Dash-400-Lollipop-Playhouse-Collection/18069#


I wasn't asked to write about the playhouse. Simply sharing the love!
