Munchkin Fresh Food Feeders

IMG_7508

Munchkin Fresh Food Feeders are one of my go to shower gifts. I just love this product and find it odd that I had never heard about it prior to having Isabelle. When I was in the States for a few months, we were starting to introduce food to little Isabelle. We started with puree apple sauce, pears, sweet potatoes, Cheerios etc… Then discovered these.

These Fresh Food Feeders are great. You can put all kinds of food it and the baby can’t choke on it. They have to suck the food out. Here are some great examples of food that I personally used in a mesh feeder:

  • Pears
  • Apples
  • Strawberries
  • Peaches
  • Banana’s (Warning! This one is very messy)
  • Mum Mum’s
  • Cheerios
  • Puffs
  • Ice cubes of formula (or breast milk)

Here are some other great ideas for food to use in a mesh food feeder:

  • Chunks of melon
  • Frozen blueberries
  • Frozen grapes

What also makes this product super awesome, is if you’re shopping, attach the a toy or pacifier clip to the handle, clip it to the baby’s bib and keep shopping. No worries about food falling on the floor.

Where can you buy this Fresh Food Feeder? You can buy them right on Amazon.ca for under $12.

 

DIY Moon Sand

Lately, I feel like I’ve been a creative rut when it comes to doing crafts with Isabelle. When we took her out of daycare in February, we did many different crafts. Lots of crafts with paint, crayons, markers and glue. But now, she’s going through a phase where she doesn’t want to get her hands dirty.

I’ve heard of moon sand before, but never tried it. I know she’s not a fan of getting her hands dirty, but decided to give it a go anyway. She LOVED it.  Here’s the recipe I used to make DIY Moon Sand.

DIY Moon Sand (from Delia Creates)

  • 8 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of baby oil

Mix and you’re done.

It was fun. She played for a good 40 minutes by herself with cars, snowmobiles, a shovel and cookie cutters. It didn’t take much to keep her busy.

It is a little dirty, but we managed to contain most of it by putting the moon sand in a large under the bed storage bin.

Have you made DIY Moon Sand before? What did you use to make it?

Buskins Leggings: Review

IMG_6645

I’ve sold these Buskins leggings for about a month and a half now (when Katie was 3 months) and I’m ready to write my first real review of the product.

Buskins Leggings are soft, durable and great quality. made from polyester and spandex, you will never go anywhere else for leggings again. buskins leggings carries, regular, fleece and fur lined leggings and sizes include toddler to women. Buskins has a small collection of plus size women’s patterns and are looking forward to expanding that line as well.

Buskins come in the following sizes for leggings.

Screen Shot 2016-03-07 at 12.45.33 PM

The Good:

  • These leggings are as comfortable as they say they are.
  • The one size does fit different sizes.
  • I’ve found that brighter colours do better with multiple washes.
  • It says hand wash, but I’ve been able to get by putting my leggings inside out in a dedicates laundry bag and hang to dry.
  • No underwear lines.

The Bad:

  • I paid an extra $10 to buy a pair of the joggers (which I love), but I find that my little drawstring ribbon frays. Luckily, there is a lot of help on the internet to help me with this.
  • Someone who I sold leggings to, said that her leggings ripped on her when trying them on, but already took off the tag. Please do not take off the Buskins tag when trying them on. If it’s within 14 days, I can return them and refund you. (Return policy)
  • I have a pair of black and white shattered leggings and found that the colour faded a little. This didn’t happen with my brighter pairs.

The Ugly:

  • Some of the patterns that Buskins offers are down right, dare I say, ugly? But you know what? These patterns would be great for to get some attention, for an 80s party theme or for Halloween, so don’t disregard them right away!

The Best:

  • You can buy these leggings from me 24/7! Just click here.
  • All the prices on the website are in CDN dollars and include taxes and shipping!

What are your thoughts so far on the leggings you’ve received?

Day 2 – Accessories

set of 3

Welcome to Day 2 of my Buskins launch. Today, we’re taking a look at accessories that you can match with Buskins leggings. Buskins leggings come in a variety of colours and patterns. Sometimes the most outrageous pattern could use a very simple accessory to help tone it down.

For the solid colour leggings, sometimes we need to add a bit more oomph to give the look a little sometime extra. You can achieve this by adding a necklace, scarf or blazer to your look.

Day 1 – Welcome to my Buskins launch

11010971_10153223197350041_4202672255780593722_n
It’s my Buskins affiliate launch week!
Welcome to my little side business! I’m happy to announce that I’m an affiliate for this company. I love their leggings and joggers so much. As I mentioned before, I find it extremely hard right now to go shopping with our little Katie. She hates the car seat* so much. Just this week, I tried to go shopping with her and had to stop multiple times, because she was screaming so hard.
Buskins leggings are extremely soft and the designs are very stylish. Just because they have a funky pattern doesn’t mean that they are impossible to match tops with. I hope that in the next couple of weeks, I’ll help you find stylish ways to wear patterned leggings so that you can wear them to work and on the weekend.
Today I’m excited to share my new venture with you and hope you find these leggings as fun as I do.
If you decide to order, please use my affiliate link and add my name or “Jenny Wears Buskins” as the affiliate referred. If you have any questions, please refer to my FAQ post.
To get this party started, I’d like to do my first giveaway.
Prize: $10 Buskins Leggings Gift Card
To win this prize, you must suggest something I should blog about? It doesn’t have to be about leggings or #momlife, it just needs to be something that you would be interested to have me write about.
To be entered in the draw, you must:
  • Like the Jenny Wears Glasses Facebook page
  • Like and share this blog post
  • Add your comment on Jenny Wears Glasses blog post or on Jenny Wears Glasses Facebook post
Please feel free to suggest as many ideas, only one entry per person.
Don’t live in Ottawa, no problem. This prize will be delivered via email.
All entries must be received by 6:30pm on Saturday, March 12. The winner of the draw will be announce on my Facebook page and blog before 8:00pm (because I’m going to bed shortly after that time).
Good luck!

* Go ahead, rub it in. Your kid probably loved the car seat. Even slept in it in the house. I’ve heard of these babies. Lucky you.
