Vremi Silicone Baking Cups and 3-in-1 Apple Slicer Review & Giveaway!

We were sent some Vremi Silicone Baking Cups and an Apple Slicer to review, we love food and baking so we couldn’t wait to check them out. Anyone who has been keeping up with my recent tweets will know since replacing my cooker I have gone on a baking binge. The girls and I love to bake and decided to put the baking cups to the test first!

Vremi Silicone Baking Cups

Vremi Baking Cups

The Vremi silicone baking cups are £13.99 for a pack of 24 Multi-coloured & BPA Free Round Cake Moulds for Cupcakes and Muffins. The baking cups are bright and colourful in pink, yellow, green and blue. The baking cups are non-stick as well as BPA free. They are oven and freezer safe and much to my delight dishwasher safe too!

Butterfly Muffins

Ok so my butterfly muffins may not look that amazing but the fact they came out of the baking cups so easily really is! We’ve had similar ones before that have been tricky to remove the cake/muffin from. The Vremi ones I had no issue with at all and would definitely recommend them for anyone who loves to bake. The came out of the dishwasher spotless and will no doubt get plenty of use.

Vremi 3-in-1 Apple Slicer

Vremi 3-in-1 apple slicer

The Vremi 3-in-1 Apple Slicer is £7.99 on Amazon and comes with 3 attachments for apples, potatoes and mangos. The blades are interchangeable and so easy to change. Apple slicing blades cut an apple into 8 wedges, perfect for my girls snacks. The potato slicer is great for homemade French fries and cuts 36 of them! If you love mangos then the mango corer is perfect as it removes the seed and slices the fruit.

I love how easy the slicer is to use with lovely big soft grip handles meaning the girls can help. The blades are so much sharper than my previous apple slicer and slice straight through! I’ve binned my previous apple slicer (even though it was purple!) because the Vremi one is much easier to use.

If you love the sound of these fab Vremi products then enter the Gleam competition below for a chance to win both!

Christmas Jumper Giveaway – Not For Ponies

We have a fantastic Christmas Jumper Giveaway thanks to Not For Ponies who also sent us some to review! We also have a matching adult & child Christmas jumper to giveaway in time for Christmas. I’m not a fan of most Christmas jumpers in all honesty but I do love the ones we were sent by Not For Ponies, festive but not ridiculous.

Not For Ponies is all about fun quirky graphics and playful prints. All items are designed and made in the UK!

Izzy received a super cute polar bear Christmas jumper – £16 and a pink unicorn top – £9 for Eva (naturally). I chose the men’s blue reindeer Christmas jumper – £28 for myself as I preferred the design haha! I really like the designs available and Eva’s t-shirt is definitely perfect for her.

Christmas Jumper Giveaway - Izzy is wearing a red polar bear jumper, Eva is wearing a pink unicorn top & I am wearing a blue reindeer jumper

The jumpers are soft and warm with generous sizing, I’m wearing a small in the photo’s above with plenty of room. Izzy is wearing 3-4 years which I was surprised to find fits her as she is currently wearing 4-5 years. Eva’s unicorn t-shirt is a size 7-8 and definitely has plenty of room. Good job as she has already begged the Mr to hurry up and wash it so she can wear it again!

Christmas Jumpers and top

We love NotForPonies.com and will definitely be buying from them in future knowing their products are great quality and sizes. Not having to wear a garish Christmas jumper is always a win for me. Getting Christmassy with the girls for our photo’s (even if I do have bags under my eyes!) was fun too.

Jungle Jam In Brazil Review & Giveaway

Jungle Jam in Brazil is an inspiring music based story where Mikey the monkey and his friends take a trip to Brazil! You may remember our review of Jungle Jam from last year when Eva also braved the camera for the first time to give her thoughts too! Jungle Jam in Brazil is the second book in the Jungle Jam series. We received copy to review and have a copy to give away too!

Jungle Jam in Brazil

Jungle Jam in Brazil

Mikey the monkey and his friends go on an exciting adventure in the second book by Noam & Louise Ledermen – Jungle Jam in Brazil. They head to Brazil to play huge show trying new things along the way.

Gina the giraffe is anxious about her trip & trying new things. Each time Gina the giraffe gets nervous her friends help her through. As someone who suffers from anxiety I found the storyline quite comforting. I’m certain any children with anxiety will find the story helpful and uplifting. I know I’ve been anxious about the same things as Gina before.

Gina the giraffe is anxious

It can be scary going on a plane to a new country, trying new food, doing new things & performing in front of an audience. With friends by your side it can be much easier to do & try new things though. Gina is encourage by her friends which helps ease her fears.

Jungle Jam in Brazil is a fabulous book for children. With bright colours & rhyming sentences Jungle Jam in Brazil is sure to bring a smile to any child’s face! Jungle Jam had a fun activity in the back for children and Jungle Jam in Brazil has one too!

Hoxton street monster supplies

Most of you know we’re an oddball family and love all thing’s weird and wonderful so when I had the opportunity to review The Hoxton Street Monster Supplies Cookbook I couldn’t wait to see what it was all about! It looks rather interesting with the front cover stating ‘Everyday recipes for the living, dead and undead!‘ I have a feeling this one will be working it’s way into my brother’s stocking once I’ve noted down my favourite

It’s so difficult to choose a recipe to start with, do I go for the Fairy Brain Fudge? Some Dragon Fuel for my beloved dragon friends? Gingerdead men look soo delicious too, then there’s the Strawberry Shortdeads.. argh it is just soooo hard to decide and we haven’t even got to the cakes yet! *Drools* Don’t they all sound scrumptious!? Think of all the Monster Tea Parties you could hold to show off your baking skills!
