OXO Tot Twist Top Water Bottle Review

LP has recently started using an open topped cup to drink from at meal times and we were looking to upgrade her sippy/straw cups to ones without valves for her to use around the house and out and about during the day. The lovely people at OXO Tot were kind enough to send me an OXO Tot Twist Top Water Bottle to try out which is one of many water bottles…

Post-Baby Weight Loss Journey – Weeks 4/5

I missed Weight Watchers last week as we had a BBQ instead – yep I know, great reason! So today was my first weigh in for 2 weeks. This week I lost 2lb!

Lastly, my Daughter is…

Post-Baby Weight Loss Journey – Week 2

I haven’t been very ‘on it’ this week with weight watching – I have tracked my main meals using the app on my iphone and I have also included any snacks but I know there are things that didn’t get included – occasional puddings, a glass of wine, a magnum ice lolly. So there wasn’t much of a surprise at the weigh in today – I lost 0.5lb. Still a…
