Sassy Bloom Baby Subscription Box review with a £10 voucher off your first box


Ok so I had my first Sassy Bloom box come yesterday, and I thought I’d do a review for you. So firstly a bit about this box. This is a monthly subscription gift box, which costs £30 a month, which you can cancel at anytime and you never know what you are getting each month..it’s a complete surprise. But it’s tailored to your little one. You fill in details when you register about yourself and your baby. The gift boxes are available from pregnancy up until your little one is 2. And each month is tailored to your babies age.  Here are some example boxes below which I got from their website. Check out their site for example boxes for older babies and toddlers too.





So I thought i’d share what I got in our first Sassy Bloom box.



So firstly it comes in a super cute box with a lovely little ribbon. I’m a sucker for frills and cuteness. So to the big reveal.




So in the box we got a baby moov love nest which is a cute pillow for support for babies head when they are on the floor, on a change mat or even in a bouncer. It’s super cute with a star and polka dot detail in a lovely apple green. Nice and neutral. We also got Finn the whale bath and room thermometer. This actually floats in the bath and is a life saver, as we have needed a bath thermometer for a while now. We got a Silly Billyz towel giblet which is super helpful, a My first nici rattle bear, sleepy tot baby’s sea shore cd ( which I am totally going to try out in the car) and lastly a personalised baby comforter with Archer’s name on it.





This is just lovely, like super cute.. So the subscription costs £30 a month and it’s free postage to the UK. But if you use the link above you can get £10 off your first order, which you cancel anytime by emailing them. So there’s no reason not to try it out. I can’t wait for next months one!





Here’s my little cutie with his personalised comforter. So soft it’s crazy! So go check out Sassy Bloom now.



So my weekend started off rocky, so rocky that I nearly didn’t bother going. But I will talk about the horrid morning that was my shopping another day.

Lets talk food, yes I am still doing my healthy eating, 10 pounds down, although I feel I have lost some of my momentum. But anyway  so thanks to the lovely Pat and Bob (Richards parents) we were treated to a meal at the Coal Hole on the Strand.

Now this old fashioned pub, placed next door to the Savoy, is a treasure. With a warm welcome, old dark wooden tables and hidden alcoves, it was a lovely spot for a bit of lunch.


When we went in, it was completely packed but we found the little staircase down to another dining room, which soon filled up quickly after we sat. I love all the shapes and details on the exterior. Also how nice is that typography?



A quick picture of where we were before it filled up quickly. Right behind me was a little alcove, which was packed full of 10 people celebrating a birthday. It looked so cosy.



Our starter, calamari was delicious. Me and Richard shared this generous portion, of which I was pretty full before even getting to the main and thats a garlic lemon mayonnaise. I am not ashamed to admit, I may have dunked my finger in the sauce once of twice…after we had finished the calamari..moving on.


The mains. I went for a grilled chicken burger, which came with the most amazing skin on chips and coleslaw. It was cooked to perfection and paired with a sweet BBQ sauce. If your a burger person get this.  It took me a while but I nearly managed to finish the beast.  Richard went for a rib eye steak which was cooked rare to perfection. He polished this off nicely while drinking a local ale. He was very happy, and I also managed to get a sneaky pic of him too.

Ah I do love him, and it was such a nice day. We went walking around Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square then ended in Leicester Square for two of my favourite ladies birthdays Alex and Letty! Letty is below, I didn’t manage to get a pic of Alex, maybe she was hiding. We spent the celebrations on the balcony of Ruby Blue over looking Leicester Square with cocktails in hands. Was a lovely evening.




I look rough, but it had been a long day  of walking. In new shoes none the less. I know I know rookie mistake.

My shopping rant will come another day, I leave you all to enjoy your Tuesday evening.
