BMW X5…. ‘no’ I candy peach 3!


Try it to believe it…

Smooth running, robust, strong, smooth to drive.IMG_1319-0 DSCF4924 (2)

Feels unusually light. Clean attractive appearance. Was simple to remove from packaging when it arrived easy to put together and get started.

It glides on the pavement.

 My daughter sits init like she’s on a throne!

A princess is how she makes out to be ( not sure if that’s just her personality or the way she feels when in the peach 3).

She rode init to the baby show and we tried it out on the bus, underground, overground and British rail all for the very first time. It was exceptionally easy to get on and of trains despite the large gap on the British rail at some stations I managed as the large wheels assist with this. Richmond park was fine on the paths but we could have done with all terrain wheels.

Whats important to us all when we buy our babies wheels is how easy is it to fold and opens? Easy, if my mum can do it so can you check out the demo video. It fits in my A class boot fine only have to remove one wheel; that’s easy too just the press of a button. The seat recline positions are great and the adjustable handles easy to adjust with a push of one button.

What would I change if anything? If only the seat lay flat I wouldn’t need to buy a separate carry cot. This ones for you Icandy, can you create the next version without the fixed angle so it lies completely flat and folds flat when stored? Also can you sell a set of all terrain wheels?

My daughter sleeps well init at 8 months even without the complete flat seat. It’s almost impossible to find a pushchair in this range on the market that does a lie flat position.

Forgot to mention rain covers great easy to put on too.

My mother the Gran gives it the thumbs up and that’s all  that matters in my family… Lol.  One last note the shopping basket is easily accessible and carries loads!

Any one got a pair of theses wheels?

what are your views on the peach 3?

Little Bu …..

Just when I made a rule that I won’t let my little girl wear nail varnish as a child I had to break it.

Rules are to be broken right?

So I was at the baby show this year and came across “Little Bu” and for those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, it is a safe, odorless, non-toxic formula nail polish that washes off or peels off making it safe for kids. They are not tested on animals and are vegan (I had no idea you get vegan nail varnish!)


How can I possibly say no to my daughter if she asks to paint her nails after all it washes off!

They are available in a wide range of colours & make great gifts all year round for the “Sweetly sophisticated girls.”

You can buy them online at Harrods or directly from Little Bu

Too far apart

Words that are just to close to home…. How many a time have I felt alone yet I look around and there’s streets full of people walking by, an address book full of contacts, a house full of family yet how far apart we all are how alone in this crowded world, all attached to our iPhones, iPads or laptops speaking to an almost artificial world just as I am now as I type these words.

many“There are too many of us and we are all too far apart.” ― Kurt Vonnegut

I’m writing these words knowing that people from all over the world are going to read them. People of all ages, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, of different religious beliefs. Most of them, I’ll never get a chance to meet. Most of them, I don’t know how they look like, what’s the thing they want most in this world, or what is it that they’re afraid of… most of them are perfect strangers to me.

Yet, simply by writing these words with these strangers in my mind, having the certainty that my words will reach them, they become a little bit more than strangers. They become human beings, just like myself, and that is one of life’s greatest achievements.

Selecting a Buggy?

So for my first baby “Amaa” I was so confused I had no real budget set in mind. The buggy search was a bit like buying a car. I visited mothercare, kiddicare and John Lewis all in search for the perfect set of wheels for my girl. And even spent hours online….

Honestly there is far too much choice in the market and that’s what drove me crazy.

So to narrow it down I set myself a budget, what functionality I want, then  looked at a few brands that matched what I was looking for and this narrowed it right down to Bugaboo and Icandy. I had my mind set on buying the Raspberry or the Bee3.

So I set out to John Lewis with my mother and Amaa only to come back empty handed! All because my dear mother didn’t quiet like either of them she was not happy as they were to low, and she described them a flimsy looking, small framed and uncomfortable. All of which I didn’t agree with of course…

So we were back on the drawing board with me still trying to convince her that the Icandy raspberry’s the one. Any how in short I ended up with the peach3  and my mother loves it being the main user. My review of it will follow.
