I've decided to join in with Vlogstars this month, for those of you who haven't heard of vlogstars it is a monthly vlogging linky hosted by Mr & Mrs T Plus Three and You Baby Me Mummy. I'm really getting into YouTube and thought that the TMI tag would be a great, fun video to film.
Tommee Tippee have recently launched their Ultra Games contest, running for two weeks from 8th - 21st August, it is the ultimate sporting event on the baby calendar. Lucky babies from all over the nation are able to compete to be crowned a Tommee Tippee Ultra Athlete. To celebrate the Ultra Games I am going to be giving away an Ultra Feeding Bottle to one lucky reader.
Bob, last week was your third birthday. That morning you didn't come home, which was very strange and very unlike you. We went off to work and hoped that you were having too much fun to come home for food and would be back home eagerly waiting for us when we finished work. We returned from work and you still weren't there.

I went along to Wagamama in Cardiff with my sister almost a year ago and we really enjoyed it. Recently we were invited back to review it as a family*, we knew it would be a challenge as Aria was teething and refusing to eat and drink, but we went along in the hope that a few hours out of the house would cheer little Madam A up.
As I mentioned in last month's blog income report I have decided to be a little more flexible with the sponsored work that I will accept, things have quietened down around here and even though I don't earn a massive amount I do rely on the extra income that I get from blogging.
If you've got a holiday planned this year you will want to ensure that you have plans in place for keeping your home safe and burglary free while you are away, after all, you want to be able to relax and enjoy your holiday, not worry about what may or may not be happening back at your empty home.
You may recall a few months ago I wrote a blog post asking if my baby was slow, I'd got carried away in the perfect world of social media and marketing emails. Marketing emails like the one below, telling me what my child is doing now, all just assuming that at this age they must be walking, talking, etc. Parents proudly sharing their babies first steps and conversations, and rightly so, I have absolutely nothing against parents sharing these things, I will myself, but I couldn't help watch them and wonder if my baby was slow.
"Your toddler’s mobility has increased dramatically over the last few months; now she can walk unaided and can probably squat down to examine something on the floor and then stand back up again and move on without any help." :-Email from Emma's Dairy.
I absolutely loved my Degustabox* last month so was super excited to find out that we will now be receiving a box to review each month. If you've not heard of Degustabox before they are basically the food equivalent to the popular beauty box. You register on the site filling in a short profile and you receive a box of 10-15 surprise foodie treats each month, with no commitment necessary. Today I will be showing you the products that I received in my July box and the approximate value of the products combined, along with a very generous £7 discount code!
