My New Cold Cup From Bear And Moo UK

Bear & Moo UK
Welcome back...

Today I want to share with you a lovely small business called Bear And Moo UK.

Bear And Moo UK is a small business in the UK run by the lovely Katie,  Katie is a fellow blogger who I have got to know more and more over the last few years, and would now consider a friend, she is a really lovely, genuine, down to earth person. When she launched her business, I was so happy for her and excited for what was to come, and when she launched, I loved the first items she listed and since then have loved everything she has listed, I honestly don't think there is anything I don't like that she sells, which by the way, is all hand made by Katie. 

What Katie says about Bear And Moo

A beautiful range of gifts, personalised items and prints perfect for any home. Choose from our new range of personalised gifts and homeware or our lovely illustrations for any room!

Bear and Moo UK was set up after rediscovering my love for drawing and illustrating. Whether you’re looking for the perfect print for your children’s room or playroom or if it’s a fun print for your living room, Bear and Moo UK have some excellent options available. 

We offer personalised and custom pieces as well as standard prints. We print all our products on premium high quality photo paper. All products are printed A4 and arrive unframed.

My Personalised Confetti Cold Cup - £10.00

Bear And Moo UK Cold Cup

I absolutely love my cold cup, it's so pretty and colour changing too, once filled with liquid the confetti becomes bright, it's so fun. I love the personalisation too, when I was growing up, I couldn't ever find anything with my name on, Zoë was an unusual name back then so it wasn't ever available on anything my friends had. That didn't help with it being unusual, plus I got so many negative comments about my name from peers and adults my parents knew so I hated it, then David Bowie named his son Zowie, pronounced Zoë and as you can imagine, my life was hell in the playground. 

It must be the child in me that still likes things with my name on, but even when I find something, there aren't any umlouts over the E, those 2 dots, and to me it isn't my name without them.

When I was chatting to Katie and choosing the font and colour I mentioned I liked the font number 6 as it had a heart over the letter I and I love anything with hearts on, I was so touched when Katie made my cup and included the umlouts but also heart shaped umlouts, it doesn't get better than that!

The cup comes with a lovely rainbow twisted straw that looks brilliant especially when the confetti changes colour. I drink Pepsi Max in my cup and it's totally fine, the lid is secure and doesn't leak and the cup is also fine after being dropped numerous times too, I haven't been throwing it round, I drop things a lot because of one of my medical conditions. 

The cup also came with a lovely cup shaped care card, it is so cute!

One of the reasons I wanted the cup is due to struggling with certain things, I don't want to delve into my private life too much but I was struggling a lot and had been using empty 500ml Pepsi Max bottles that my family would pour some Pepsi Max into for me, I had wanted a cup with a lid and straw for a while but hadn't found any I liked, as soon as I saw Katies, I loved it, and I am so glad I have it, it isn't only lovely, it has really made things a lot easier for me. If like me you struggle or know someone who does, then the cup would be brilliant for you/them, it really has made a difference for me and it looks pretty too, so it's a win win. 

I'm sure you can already tell, but I adore my cold cup, it's made such a difference to my life and I get so many compliments on it too. I highly recommend it, and if you're not looking for a new cup, check out Katie's Etsy Store anyway for a browse, she has some really lovely things and I'm sure you'll find something you love.

Welcome back.

After what seems like the longest January in the history of mankind, it's finally February, the month of love and almost Valentines Day. 

I see a lot of gift ideas posts for partners at this time of year, but I thought I'd mix it up a little and for Valentines this year, I have a gift ideas post for your dog, after all, our fur babies are loyal, caring, they love us unconditionally, and best of all, they don't lie and mess us around, sounds like the perfect Valentine to me, but don't tell my partner. 

I have found some gorgeous gift ideas for your furry friend, so I shall stop rambling and get on with the task in hand, each product description will include a direct link so you can find the item without having to google.

I hope you liked my choices of gifts for your doggy, I loved looking for them and Bear, my dog enjoyed helping me look too, although I think he thought he was in for a very nice Valentines Day this year. Whilst looking I discovered some great websites so I thought I'd share a bit of information on those too just incase it might be helpful for you. 

Websites I Found & Loved


I really liked the Yappy website, it is brilliant if you have a dog or cat or if you're buying a gift for someone who has a furbaby. You can create a profile for your pet, I created one for Bear, I put in his breed, name and gender, then chose his colouring from a range of options and then each personalised item shows Bear on it, like the images above, it's really cute and they have some amazing things and not just for Valentines, there is a lot of choice for lots of occaisions, a brilliant website. 

Peace With The Wild

I must admit I hadn't heard of this company before searching for products for this post, but I'm really glad I did, they are a family run business, who work with small independant brands who all believe in a greener future by using the most natural ingredients and recyclable/biodegradable packaging and they have a huge range of plastic free products, as a family they have been trying to live waste free for quite a few years and they echo this in their business too, they have a brilliant ethos and the products they sell look lovely, and there is something for everyone. 

The dog treats I included in this post contain no nasties, we feed Bear on a grain free and natural product diet, and we buy treats to mirror this, the treats I shared are grain free and natural, they contian peanut butter, strawberries and carrob, that's it, no preservaties, no nasties and the packaging is plastic free. 

The product range includes cleaning products, makeup, pet care, gardening, food and drink, mama and baby and much much more, they are definitely worth a look, I will definitely be placing an order soon, if you're interested in the website, you can find it with this direct link, here


Another great website selling so many great products for dogs and cats too, there are lots of items to choose from, including beds, collars, leads, toys, clothes amongst other things, I could get lost down a rabbit hole browsing their website, I'm really glad I found it and again, I hadn't heard of it before searching for items for my post. You can access the website via this direct link here.

I also didn't realise how much choice for pets there is on the Shein website, there is absolutely loads of things on there and all at really affordable prices. 

And lastly, a photo of my furbaby Bear, my little blog helper.
