Win a Tommee Tippee Steamer Blender with #weantogether

Baby Food Steamer BlenderLike learning to walk and potty training, weaning is an all-consuming stage (no pun intended). I think we probably left it too late with Scrip, as she devoured her first baby rice in front of us in a matter of seconds at 5 and a half months, and possibly started too early with D who instantly spat the spoon out.

I remember doing buggy fit in Holland Park in London (those hazy days!) and some of the class would take about all-in-one weaning solutions and I would listen enviously. It felt like something that might make my weaning world – filled with mushy butternut squash, pureed parsnip and sieved carrot – a lot easier. But I never went beyond my basic weaning kit.

I still keep an eye out for weaning recipes (here’s my weaning Pinterest board which was great inspiration for me and which I still add to) and I have friends who are going through all the messy stages of it at the moment.

Tommee Tippee has joined up with child nutritionist, Charlotte Stirling-Reed, for #WeanTogether which is encouraging parents to come up with simple and delicious new fruit and veg recipes. I like the tongue-in-cheek tone, which gives weaning recipes a twist with hipster foodie titles, such as Deconstructed Autumn Fruit Crumble (aka pear and blueberries).

But the best thing is that, through Tommee Tippee, I’m offering the chance to win a brand new Steamer Blender (worth £106.99). Just use the Rafflecopter link below.

Basically, the Steamer Blender does all the work for you. This is why I wish I’d had one of these:

  • It steams food to preserve nutrients and flavour
  • It blends easily to a range of textures for every weaning stage
  • There’s no transfer between steaming and blending
  • There’s an automatic timer so you can just set, leave, then simply serve or store
  • There are only a small number of parts for easy cleaning
  • It’s BPA Free for ultimate reassurance
  • It’s a Made for Mums GOLD Best Product for Weaning 2017

Good luck!

The Steamer Blender (RRP £106.99) is now available at Amazon, Mothercare and Toys R Us. For more information visit https://www.tommeetippee.co.uk/product/baby-food-steamer-blender

Win an extra special dinner date

14570698_1794279780788117_8328664318184775630_oI’m feeling slightly jaded tonight after a meal out for my husband’s birthday yesterday. We went to the fantastic Hudson Steak House in Bath – as a veggie this was a sacrifice for my husband! Luckily I found my food delicious and imaginative – sweetcorn fritters and a side of french fries with truffle and parmesan. Yum. And apparently the steak was rather good, too.

Nights out are few and far between so it’s nice to organise something extra special. With Georgian architecture, like our new hometown of Bath, Grade I listed Moggerhanger Park is just that. It’s a beautiful country house hotel set in over 30 acres in rural Bedfordshire.

If you fancy sampling something a little special there’s the chance to win a meal for two and wine at Moggerhanger’s restaurant simply by liking and sharing their post. Simple.

They’ve also got a reputation as a lovely wedding venue so worth a peek.

This is a collaborative post with Moggerhanger Park.

Win a pre-Christmas essentials pack

Win pre-Christmas Essentials

********And the winner is…. KP Borowy from Bolton. Congratulations and enjoy! Thank you to everyone who entered**********

I was asked in Clarks this week if I’ve finished my Christmas shopping. Finished? It’s barely December… I’ve hardly started. I’m obviously still a rookie parent but I’m actually pleased that I’ve at least bought one or two presents and have a growing iPhone notes page of ideas.

So as I fight my way through the crowds on Christmas Eve, I know I will appreciate a little extra help. If you’re at all like me, although I can’t provide a handy gift-wrapping elf, I can offer you the chance to win a few essentials to help your run up to Christmas go a little more smoothly.

Here’s what the prize includes:

The forgotten present: Mosaic Baylis & Harding Sweet Mandarin & Grapefruit Weekend Bag Gift Set
There’s always one… It’s nice to have a present in reserve (or even a little gift for you) stored away in your wardrobe. This gift bag is packed full of bath creme, shower gel, body wash, bath milk, body butter, hand & nail cream and body polisher. And the weekend bag it comes in with gold purse attached is stylish and useful.

For a silent-ish night: Lavender Essential Oil
If the stress of preparing for the big day means you can’t switch off, how about an essential oil to aid relaxation? Add a couple of drops to your pre-bedtime bath (well, you can dream). Lavender Pure Essential Oil £11.39 is also available from Holland & Barrett Stores and online.

For an energy boost: Emergen-C Vitamin C sachets
A cold before Christmas? Just what you don’t need. Emergen-C offers a double hit of energy release and immunity support in handy fast dissolving, wallet-sized sachets. Packing 1000mg of Vitamin C to support the immune system’s normal function and 6 B vitamins for energy release Emergenc-C costs £4.99 for a pack of 8 and is available from Boots stores nationwide.

For a health-conscious Father Christmas: Mince pies without the gluten
Available at Holland & Barrett for £2.89 for a pack of 4, Lovemore’s Gluten Free Mince Pies don’t sacrifice any of the flavour. Made with shortcrust pastry and deep-filled with mincemeat, they also contain no artificial colours or flavours.

For when the hard work is done: An Organic Midnight Mud Mask
You deserve a little me-time at Christmas. This Dr. Organic Dead Sea Mineral Bio-Plasma Mud Mask should help. Organic Dead Sea Mineral salt and Dead Sea Mud have a long history of skin purifying and health promoting properties and are combined with a blend of bioactive, natural and organic extracts, such as Kaolin, Plankton Extract and Algae Extract. £7.99 from Holland & Barrett.

Wishing you a peaceful December and good luck!
