Recent purchases: cups, containers etc.

I don't spend an absolute fortune on my child, but I love shopping for fun bits and pieces for Zac, especially if they help to encourage him to eat more/better etc. I recently picked up a couple of bargains in ASDA's reduced section and ordered some cute straws on ebay as well. I will link everything below, if I can find it online.

Food Containers 
Zachary loves Planes and Spiderman, so I knew right away that he will love these containers. I bought them for storing raisins, blueberries etc for days out or car journeys and I also use them in the house, because Zac thinks they are very cool :) I am not sure, if you can still get them in ASDA, but I found them on ebay (HERE) for £2.99 each in various designs. They are very sturdy as well, so I will be ordering more.

Mickey Mouse Cup With Straw 
This cup is perfect for our long walks. I do power walking and push Zachary in his stroller for 1-2 hours sometimes so I have to make sure he has something to drink with him. You can buy this design (and other ones) HERE for £2.99.

This type of cup is Zachary's favourite, unless he is drinking through a straw. I like to replace his cups every couple of months, because they get damaged in the dishwasher and thrown about the house :) haha. You can get this one in most supermarkets or on amazon etc.

You can buy similar ones from Dunelm and Amazon quite cheap and they are ideal for making cookies with your little one :) I will be sharing a post about baking with Zachary at some point, so keep your eyes peeled for that :)

These are just a nice colourful addition to Zachary's drinks and they also look fab in photos :)

Small Purple Saucepan (£4.99 in TK Maxx)
I got this little saucepan for cooking tiny meals for Zachary. I don't like using big pans, when I am only cooking a small amount of food. You can get it HERE. I love the colour as well.

If you have any recommendations for food related items for kids, let me know in the comments below. Zac is quite a fussy eater, so I do my best to make things more fun for him.

New blogging adventure :)

Hi everyone and welcome to my (our) brand new Mummy & Baby Blog! I couldn't be more excited about this new adventure and I can't wait to get started. I have lots of blog posts planned already and I recently started adding vlogs from our little days out to my youtube channel

I felt quite restricted on my beauty blog and I didn't want to turn it into a big medley, so creating my 'mummy space' on the Internet was something I have been planning for a long time. I wish I have started sooner, but hey... better late than never! We are planning another baby for 2015, so it will also be my pregnancy blog in the future. I am sooo excited!

If you haven't  heard about my little boy yet, his name is Zachary and he is turning 3 next month. I still can't believe it to be honest, because I feel like I gave birth to him recently (I also look like it, haha). 

Let me know, if you have any baby/mummy blog post requests and I will add the topics to my diary.

You can now follow Mummy & Baby Blog on Bloglovin as well and we would be delighted if you joined us on this new adventure :)

Love, Sandra zzz
