Modern Mummy Loves....

Hurray! We had 9 entries to the first Modern Mummy Loves linky last week and I loved reading what everyone had been up to and about the products they had reviewed.

Welcome to week two! 

I realise it's Easter and people are busy so I'm expecting it to be a little bit quieter on the blog front. We've had a crazy last few days of term and now the holidays are here I'm going to take a few days off myself. But before I head back to my parents house and park myself on their sofa for a weekend of eating lots of chocolate, here's my weekly round up!

Easter Cake Making.
We had a great afternoon making Easter cakes for the nursery cake sale on Wednesday. We used the vanilla cupcake recipe from the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook, iced them with yellow cream cheese frosting and then decorated them with Smarties mini eggs and little fluffy chicks! 

Lin & Leo.
This week the wonderful people at Lin & Leo sent me a brand spanking new BabyBag in soft, classic black leather. This gorgeous black version is not yet available to buy but you will be the first people to know when it has been officially released! Next week will see an entire blog post devoted to it but I couldn't not give you a sneak preview today - it's absolutely divine.

I wasn't the only person to be sent a gorgeous new bag this week; lucky Daisy was also sent a LittleLife dolphin DriStore DaySack for her swimming sessions!

These bags are a total must for trips to the pool or the beach! Available in dolphin, orca or crocodile, they are water resistant and have a spacious 5 litre main compartment which is the perfect size for a swimming costume and towel. Daisy's favourite feature is the secret coin pocket which means you can hide a few pounds in there for an ice cream or an after-swim snack.

These bags also have a top grab handle and are compatible with the daysack rein too - which makes them great for younger children as well as older ones.

Cool and practical! What more could you want in a children's bag?

Funky Giraffe.
My favourite bandana bib makers have now started selling the most adorable moccasins for little feet! They have flexible leather soles and soft cotton upper socks which means they are super cosy, and they can either be worn on their own indoors, or underneath shoes to help keep them on! As with all Funky Giraffe products; the more you buy the more you save - the most you would pay for a pair of these is £7 which is still a huge bargain if you ask me!

I hope you enjoyed reading about my finds of the week! What products have you discovered or reviewed recently? Why not link up below so that others can read all about them!

Linkys are a great way of discovering new blogs and making new friends and hopefully this one will introduce people to new products available on the market too. You can link up any post - whether its a personal weekly round up or your favourite product review. Help yourself to the Modern Mummy Loves badge and join in! xoxox
