The New Bugaboo Cameleon3 Blend

This November Bugaboo introduces the latest special edition: the Bugaboo Cameleon3 Blend.  The Bugaboo Cameleon3 is the original all-in-one that parents love for quality, style and all round comfort for their baby. From newborn to toddler, this fully-loaded pushchair adapts to every journey making it easy to use on the move.  It breathes the legacy of 15 years of Bugaboo design and continues to be a modern-day icon of creativity and innovation. Continuing in that inventive spirit, we are always looking out for new materials.

Designed for parents who enjoy city life as well as trips to the woods, sand and snow , the special-edition Bugaboo Cameleon3 Blend is naturally stylish, combining a refined, soft, brushed polyester tweed outer fabric, and blue TENCEL®* lining. The pushchair breathes a sense of softness, offering maximum comfort for parents and their child. I love the brown leather handle!

I have always had Bugaboos myself, having the Cameleon with Oscar and now the Buffalo with Archie and also have the Runner which is the jogging extension.

Why did I choose a Bugaboo myself?

I chose Bugaboo for the quality of the pushchair and being able to use it anywhere easily. In the park in thick mud to on holiday abroad in the sand. I love being able to change the hood colour of the pushchair keeping it stylish and on trend with the gorgeous colours and patterns available. I always recommend Bugaboo to my friends when they are choosing a pushchair and they have all thanked me for it!

The Bugaboo Cameleon3 Blend is available now with an RRP of £999.

Brand New Bugaboo By Diesel #BeBrave

Have you seen the new Bugaboo by Diesel range. As a Bugaboo Buffalo owner I always get excited when Bugaboo launch new fabric designs as you can instantly give your pushchair a face lift. This is the second Bugaboo by Diesel collection and is absolutely gorgeous! I absolutely love the wheels.

Bugaboo and Diesel have bundled their creative and rebellious spirit to design a collection that takes the iconic lifestyle brand’s DNA as a starting point: Denim. Two new pushchairs are taking centre stage this time round with a complete makeover for the all-terrain pushchair, the Bugaboo Buffalo, and a Tailored Fabric Set for the convertible pushchair, the Bugaboo Donkey. The military-inspired Bugaboo by Diesel Cameleon3 from the first collection will also remain available in stores.

They have also gone all out on the accessories with a matching denim changing bag with leather details to the collection, featuring functional inside pockets for parents on the go. To complete your pushchair wardrobe there is even a special-edition Bugaboo by Diesel Seat Liner, Footmuff, Parasol and Mosquito Net in camouflage print from our first release.

 

 

This time the focus lies on Diesel’s denim heritage; the Bugaboo by Diesel Denim collection features a washed and specially-treated denim that is effortlessly stylish. The denim is hand-ripped, distressed, and features paint splatters in various denim hues. Over time, the denim will naturally fade, just like your favourite pair of jeans would. Thanks to the Bugaboo by Diesel Denim collection, denim lovers will be sure to stand out in a crowd!

The Bugaboo Buffalo by Diesel comes in a blue anodised chassis, washed denim sun canopy, carrycot and seat, and many new and interesting details. The central joint, for instance, is based on a rivet you will find on your Diesel jeans, the wheel rims have been coloured blue to complement the denim fabric, and the hand-treated fabric itself has been given a unique finish with paint splatters. Black, leather-look details on the handlebar and seat give the pushchair a rebellious touch. There is also a matching bag in denim and leather which can be hung on the handlebar of the Bugaboo Buffalo.

The Fantastic New Bugaboo Runner #RunFree

Yesterday Archie and I went into London to the gorgeous Kensington Roof Gardens for the launch of the new Bugaboo Runner. I first saw the Runner online a few months ago and as a Bugaboo owner couldn’t wait for its release. I have a Bugaboo Buffalo and absolutely love it and had the Cameleon with Oscar when he was a baby.

When we arrived I was shown the Runner and it looks even better in the flesh! With its air-filled spoked wheels to the sleek design it is gorgeous. The Runner is a three wheeler jogger pushchair that can be brought as a complete pushchair or if like me you already have a Bugaboo you can just buy the chassis as an accessory. If you already own the Bugaboo Cameleon 3, Bugaboo Bee (2010 models onwards), Donkey or the Buffalo you can just click on your existing seat using the adapters and off you go.



The main features that make the Runner stand out from the ‘jogger pushchair’ crowd is the air-filled tyres allow your baby to have a smooth ride wherever you chose to run, the chassis is designed purely for running and when running you can either have your baby facing you or when they are a bit older facing forwards so your baby can see what is going on around them. The wheels have mud guards to prevent you or your baby from getting muddy and it has two brakes, a foot break for normal use and when you are running an easy access speed control break on the handlebar to control your speed and stop easily. The easy access break works like a bike break so the pushchair will stop smoothly instead of throwing your baby forwards. It has 16″ rear wheels and a 14″ front wheel that gives you maximum stability and also any lumps and bumps you run over are completely absorbed into the chassis instead of like other jogging pushchairs go up through your baby.



The Runner can be used from 9 months old up until 37.5lbs, so will last a long time. The under seat basket also has elasticated straps so your belongings are safe when jogging and nothing will fall out. The basket also has three mesh Velcro pockets for things like you phone, money and keys. Now you have all the facts let me tell you what I thought of it once I had tried it out. I ran it around the track which was great fun and it was easy to run around the corners and even when running at a fast speed it was easy to control with the speed control break. I really love the Runner and will be getting one myself as I want to get fit after having my two children but during the day I have Archie and any fitness classes in the evening are not always possible as Greg sometimes gets back from work late. I could go to the gym but don’t want to put Archie in a creche and wanted to find something I could do with him. I have currently been doing an online fitness video course but I absolutely love running as I used to run to quite a high standard in my teens and love exercising outside in the fresh air. Now the Runner is available it has solved this problem for me and I can’t wait to start running again and take Archie with me to enjoy the outdoors too. So Run Free and get fit this Summer with Bugaboo.




The Runner has a really compact fold and will fit in any car boot. I also liked that even after a run if Archie falls asleep I can adjust the seat so he can sleep flat and use it as a normal pushchair too.




I also had a lovely BBQ lunch and a catch up with Laura from Mum Of Five Staying Sane and her Son. To finish off the day I was given the most amazing shoulder massage. It was such a fab launch!



The Bugaboo Runner chassis including the adapters has an RRP of £349 and the complete Runner with the chassis, adapters and seat will have an RRP of £583.

Putting A Shopping List Of Baby Bits Together!

Since I was pregnant with Oscar five years ago the world of baby and nursery products has changed dramatically! When I had Oscar I brought so many bits and pieces (most you don’t really need) and as we have now passed the twenty weeks stage I have been putting a list together of things we need to get as I am trying to be really organised especially being due around Christmas.


We have our nursery furniture that was from Mama’s and Papa’s and has lasted really well and Oscar is now in a cabin bed so I only need to get him a chest of draws then I can use the changing unit/draws for the baby. Some of the things I have come across have shocked me, like the Fisher Price bouncer with Ipad holder. I was pleased to read this had been discontinued! There are some products available that I really love the look of and can make life a little easier for you. The Tommee Tippee perfect prep machine looks fab and I have had friends that have used it and they absolutely rave about it. Also I will defiantly be getting a video baby monitor this time as these weren’t around five years ago and look really great.


Another major difference when browsing the baby clothes is there are so many cuter boys clothes available now. As we don’t know what we are having I have brought a few neutral bits. I am loving star patterns and also brought some adorable giraffe printed baby grows from Mothercare plus I like the idea of rainbow prints for our little rainbow baby. I won’t be buying to much as I did this last time then when Oscar was born had loads of neutral clothes still on hangers as family and friends brought him so many lovely boy outfits. I was surprised in Next they have a tiny range of unisex new baby clothes which made me think maybe lots of people find out the sex of their baby now? To be honest I would love to find out but Greg doesn’t want to so I will just have to wait for the surprise!


There are also so many great looking pushchair/travel systems available now from fun and quirky designs from Cosatto, really modern designs from Quinny and I am still drawn back to Bugaboo has I had one with Oscar and it was great. To many to choose from makes the decision even harder. I am going to wait until the Baby Show in October to have a thorough look at them all. We have a Stokke mini sleepi cot from before too which I found making going from a moses basket to a big cot much easier. I have brought new white bedding and bumpers already, let’s see how long I can keep them clean this time. 


I had a Silver Cross car seat with Oscar but don’t have it any more so have been looking at the Maxi-Cosi pebble and with my car now I can have an isofix base which makes getting the car seat in and out of the car so much easier, especially after a C-section. 


Decisions, decisions all very exciting though!
