Cupcakes With A Difference

I’d been looking for a gift for a friend who has recently given birth to a beautiful wee girl.  I wanted something different, useful, stylish and unique.  As a new mummy, I follow lots of Baby Boutique style shops on Instagram and Facebook, so I was delighted when I came across the page ‘Mum and Me Baby Gifts’.

‘Mum and Me Baby Gifts’ are a mother and daughter duo, based in Glasgow, who appreciate how special and important the imminent arrival of a new baby can be.  They aim to create a stunning and memorable item for you to gift at this special time.

Their range of nappy cakes, baby bouquets, cutie cupcakes make the perfect gift for a new mum or mum to be and certainly make a stunning centre piece for any baby shower.  All of their newborn and yummy mummy gifts are hand crafted and each creation is completely unique so whether pink, blue, unisex or themed they put a lot of time and effort into creating this very special gift for a very special new arrival.

I decided to treat my friend to the stylish ‘Cutie Cupcakes’.  They’re going to be a real sweet treat for her special little bundle.  They’re baked with love and care using a variety of baby clothing.  They came presented in a beautiful cupcake box, decorated with embellishments and beautifully gift wrapped with ribbon and a rattle keepsake charm.

The ‘Cutie Cupcakes’ are cleverly crafted by Mum and Me and will go down a treat as they contain clothing essentials that every new mum needs for her little princess as well as having the luxurious, velvety plush, traditional Beatrix Potter character Flopsy Bunny comforter incorporated within each box.

The ‘Cutie Cupcake’ box includes:

 1 x Luxury Flopsy Bunny comforter
2 x Pairs of socks (0-6 months)
1 x Short sleeved bodysuit (3-6 months or 0-3)
1 x Pair of mitts
1 x Muslin square

A Day For Bargains!

Today, I popped into Tesco to cash in my winning Lottery ticket – a whole £5.10p!  Not quite the jackpot I was hoping for but I think I’m one step closer to winning a million!

Whilst waiting in the queue, I spotted what can only be described as an amazing bargain! A Vtech “First Steps Baby Walker” reduced from £33.00p to £7.50p!  Initially I thought this was a mistake but when paying for it at the check out (yes, I couldn’t resist picking one up for my wee Grace), the Checkout Assistant advised that if you buy it online it’s £15, but £7.50p in store.  Apparently it’s only available in Tesco, Hermiston Gate at this price but it’s certainly worth checking out your local store.


Next stop, ‘Tiger’ in The Centre, Livingston.  I popped in to get some ideas for decorations etc. for Graces first birthday.  Unfortunately the store is due to close down at the end of the month but with them closing down comes lots of reductions.  I picked up a few wee bits and pieces for Grace, including a “duck water cannon” for scooshing Grumps when we go swimming.  This was reduced from £3.50p to £0.50p.  The best bargains which I picked up were the “Hooded Bath Towels”.   I bought Grace a couple of the pink bears and watermelon designs.  These are great for when we go swimming and will be handy for our holidays too.  These were originally £4.00p but today . . . . £0.50p each!

All round, a great wee day for bargains!
