Goodbye

May 18, 2012 at 9:37 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments

I’m sad to announce that Bump To Bundle is closing for business on 8th June 2012.

It’s been two years since we started up but no other commitments have taken over and keeping the shop up to its usual standard is becoming more difficult.

It’s a very sad time but hopefully future ventures will help to ease the sadness.

Thank you to everyone who has offered support, become a customer or even given feedback. It’s been a happy two years.

Goodbye x

Anne

If you would like to keep in touch I will be running this blog Raisie Bay, or you can find me on Twitter @Okesanne

Samsung SEW-3035 Wireless Monitoring System, Review and competition

April 24, 2012 at 3:51 pm | Posted in competition, guide, information, product information, Uncategorized | 5 Comments

I was given a Samsung SEW-3035 baby monitor to review. This is a top of the range wireless video monitor with many features. I was also given two baby blankets to give away to my blog readers, more details about this below.

Samsung SEW-3035 Wireless Monitoring System

I’m usually a person who buys products which suit my needs and rarely go for top-of-the-range products, and if I’m honest I never really saw the advantages of having a video monitor. I believe I am converted now. Watching my baby sleep is an absolute pleasure and I was even able to do some recordings. I never before realised just how long he was awake before he started to move or make a noise. The first night this monitor was installed I was transfixed to the screen. The novelty did wear off, but I always felt more comforted being able to see my baby all the time.

The first thing I noticed was how easy it was to set up. The package even gives you a template to use when attaching the camera to the wall. I did not attach the camera as I wanted to test it from different positions in the room. The picture on the monitor screen was very clear. You can even view it through a computer or television, although the picture loses a little of its quality the bigger you view it.

At night the picture is black and white. We use a lamp in the bedroom but tried it with the lamp off and the room in complete darkness and couldn’t really tell the difference. During the daylight pictures are viewed in full colour. You can also zoom in on your baby for a closer look, and you can turn the on the night light on the camera by a switch on the monitor.

The Samsung SEW-3035 monitor is wireless and can be taken from room to room. It has its own handy little stand or a clip to attach it to your belt or clothing. The charge last for several hours and bleeps when the charge is running low, then you need to plug it in. The camera can also be used with batteries for complete portability.

There is a two way audio between the monitor and the camera so you can speak to your baby, sometimes a few words of comfort is all they need to help them settle back to sleep or stop the tears.

A really nice feature is the ability to record what the camera sees by a button on the monitor. You can record manually or set it to record automatically when it detects movement. You need a micro SD card, which is not supplied, to be able to use this function. I used one from an old phone. You can also use the monitor on your pc to send videos to friends and family through your Skype or MSN account.

The Samsung SEW-3035 Monitor can be used with up to four cameras which can be purchased separately.

Another feature is the temperature settings; the temperature of the room is picked up by the camera and displayed on the monitor. You can set an alarm to let you know if this temperature gets too hot or too cold.

In summary I found the Samsung SEW-3035 monitor easy to use and it looks smart. The screen is clear and gives a good picture in both colour and black and white. The sound quality is good and can be adjusted. It has many features which are all quite simple to use.

The innovative Samsung SEW-3035 wireless baby monitoring system is available now in the UK with an RRP of £149.

I have two Samsung travel blankets to give away. They are chocolate colour and are soft and cosy for baby. The blankets fold and pack away not a leather pouch when not in use and they can then be hung from a pram.  They are the perfect addition to any holiday and will ensure that baby travels in the utmost of comfort. Worth £19.99

The competition is now closed, congratulations to the winners, Sarah and Donna.

Looking Forward

Recently we had a little wobble here at Bump To Bundle and were so close to closing shop. Things have been slow recently and that’s not something we like to admit. But is that any reason to give up? Hours and hours of hard work on a daily basis go into the shop, the blog, the promotion of both the shop and blog, so when the returns are less than desirable it’s hard to keep it all up. 

However, we are not ready to give up just yet. First we have so much new stock for the summer, we don’t want to end up putting it on Ebay or likewise. What we need to do is have a rethink, a revamp, some fresh new ideas and we can get excited about what we are doing again.

In the meantime we would love it if you could show us some support either on Facebook, or Twitter, or even by leaving a comment on this blog. Our fans are always rewarded with special offers, freebies and competitions. If you are another business then contact us too as we love a little mutual support.

Blog Carnival - Big Pink

I’m proud to be hosting the Business Mums Blog Carnival for this month. The carnival originated from Helen at Business Plus Baby and is wonderful way of sharing and interacting with other business mum bloggers. So grab a cuppa and come and read through the great selection of blog posts I have received for this month.

First off, what do you think of the term mumpreneur? Kizzy Bass gives her personal opinion on her Kizzy Bass Business Blog.

Helen from Business Plus Baby warns us Be Careful Who Your Friends Are as she talks about the way people around us influence us and how to make the best of the more positive relationships. Grace, from Grace Marshall talks about how we compare ourselves with others and the importance of your behind the scenes efforts to ensure your future success in her inspiring post Digging Ditches.

Elaine from Littlesheep Learning had an exciting day when she received the #WOW business award. #WOW or Women on Wednesday is a Twitter award from  Jacqueline Gold (Ann Summers.) Another similar award is the #SBS, Small Business Sunday award from Theo Paphitis (Dragon’s Den)

Then we have a couple of more personal posts. Helen from Memoirs of a Baby Signing Teacher in an inspiring post talks about how she took her first steps into the world of baby signing and the importance of taking small steps to make greater journeys. And another Helen from The Hub talks about the snow from last Christmas and how she is preparing this year to go the extra mile to keep her customers satisfied.

Are you going away this Christmas? Not something I’ve ever done and I do think of the hassle of taking the kids on long journeys, but not to fear because Julia from Kids Travel2 has some excellent tips to avoid stressful travel with children this Christmas. And if you are prone to overindulging at Christmas then Rachel on Beautiful Swans tells you how hypnotherapy can help with weight loss.

The Activate Fundraising Blog poses the question Are There Enough Hours in Your Day? (Never!) Here you will find a well planned strategy to find the time to increase your fundraising efforts. Or maybe you have too much time to spare? Over on Become a Mumpreneur you can learn How To Turn Your Hobby into a Business.

Finally a selection of business tips posts.

On Become a Mum Blogger, What is Linking?

On Mums Business Directory, Have You Created your Google+ Page

On The Mumpreneur Blog, My Success, a step by step guide

On Family Friendly Working, How Mentoring Helps

On Make Money Online, What’s Stopping You?

On Ace Inspire, Invention Tips: Dubious Industry Practices to Avoid
