Pure Genius! Personalized Cup Bands for Kid’s Drinking Bottles


Do you ever see something and think why the h*ll didn’t I think of that.  I don’t know how many of my daughter’s drinking cups we have lost through the years.  When she was younger, if I had two the same Sippy cups but different colours, I’d switch the tops so they would stand out a bit more, but  I still managed to lose them regularly.


One of our local mums have come up with this idea and as many know I’m a huge supporter of mums in business.  When Kate first sent me a Bandino Cup Band, I got so excited I bleated about it on every social platform I have access to, so you may have seen them already, but I do genuinely think they are genius.

Labels for Drinking Bottles


They are incredible flexible and can fit on almost any drinking cup, I’m now using ours for my daughter’s water bottle.  One of the things I really like is the ability to personalize them, but you can also put your child’s class name, allergies, phone number or anything else on it you want.

A Pack of 3 retails for £8.95, much cheaper than repeatedly replacing cups!


Pinkest Witch Cupcakes! Yum!

Good old Twitter! I was moaning about baking cupcakes for my daughter’s birthday. I’d already spent £11 and I hadn’t even bought the ingredients yet, when I was rescued by @PWitchCupCakes. She’s a friend of a friend and she was heading in this general direction for an event. The only thing I had to do was drive up the A1 and meet her in a car park to pick them up.

It was so worth the drive, the cupcakes were amazing and I didn’t have to bake. Result! They were presented beautifully in a gift box and the Cupcakes resembled artwork. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to try one myself but according to the adults they were light, fluffy, zesty and a few other adjectives. One of the mums said that her daughter never eats a whole cupcake and she polished off the whole thing. I can’t recommend Klare and her cupcakes enough. Do check out Pinkest Witch Cup Cakes. She’s now offers a proper delivery service!

As usual, I didn’t manage to take a reasonable photo so I asked Clare to supply me with a couple.  But I can honestly say ours were just as gorgeous.  Talented Lady I’m sure you will agree!
