The MFM office is literally full to the brim of everything and anything in the world of baby, toddler and pregnancy. If you’re not tripping over boxes of toys and baby gadgets, we’re busy trying out all the latest mum and baby cosmetics or eating. In fact, we do alot of eating…


First up, we were delighted when these super cute (mini) baking sets from Boo Boo and Squirt got delivered. Winning us over with it polka dot wrapping and matching pinny, these Cath Kidston inspired sets are perfect for little budding bakers. We loved the cookie cutters and bear shaped baking mould – a teddy bear shaped spnge cake? Don’t mind if we do! Seeing as it’s National Baking Week next week, what better excuse to put these sets through their paces. Check back next week to see what the MFM team whip up…

All this talking of baking was making us peckish, which is why the next package arrived just in time! The lovely people at Tesco sent us a generous selection of their brand new Vegelicious! meal range. We all gathered around the office microwave and put our taste buds to the test.

Made with soya mince and packed full of your 5-a-day veggies, these compact sized meals are more than enough to fill you up at dinnertime and are really tasty. Perfect for vegetarians and even those who aren’t, as the veggie mince should satisfy meat eaters need for substance!

The hot pot and bolognaise went down a treat – layered with sweet potato and chunky vegetables, these belly filling will keep you warm now winter seems to have rapidly appeared! What’s better, these meals will only set you back £3. Make sure you check them out when they arrive in all Tesco stores from October 11.

Taking our attention away from our stomach’s, we set our eyes on the adorable new A/W childrenswear collection from Mamas & Papas. Aside from the super cute heritage inspired twin sets for girls and sweet tailoring for the boys, we LOVE these checked booties the lovely people at M&Ps sent us.

Sitting proudly on my desk, these tiny booties are like finger puppets! They would look very dapper on stylish little boys alike, so make sure you check them out and put them on your wish list for this winter. They are lined and padded for extra comfort and support and will cost you a tenner. Go.Buy.Now.

And now something a little more indulgent… Space NK have announced the launch their brand new cosmetic range especially for mums, mums-to-be and babies. The Bloom and Blossom collection is clad in typical glam Space NK style packaging – and we got to see it first!

Consisting of indulgent anti-stretch mark oil, revitalising leg and foot spray, rejuvenating facial spritz, mother and baby oil and soothing nipple balm – this range is definitely one for the dressing table. We got sent a sample of the nipple balm which comes in a handbag sized jar and smells gorgeous. All of the products are available from Space NK, with prices from £12. What better excuse to pamper yourself!

When we heard that there was a product which combined beauty and household neccessity, we were intrigued… and then arrived into the MFM office!

Fairy Clean and Care washing up liquid has teamed up with Olay skincare to create this gem of a product! Throw away the rubbler gloves ladies, as this will clean your dishes and keep your hands moisturised – meaning the days of wrinkly, dry hands are over. Hoorah!


Apparently not only will it get rid of stubborn stains, it’ll also keep your hands noticably softer after the first use… It hits stores at the beginning of October, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled when you next do your food shop. We’re trying out this week, so we’ll let you our verdict.
