HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

30 Jun

IMG_20130628_232645
Where does the time go?! This weekend we celebrated A's 2nd birthday and I honestly can't believe it was over two years ago that we welcomed her into this world. It really is true, time flies when you are having fun. I would like to freeze it for a little while now please?

To celebrate A turning two, this year we decided to keep it relatively low key. Instead of a big party we just had an intimate BBQ with our family and a couple of A's best friends. It was a lovely afternoon. Highlights included the house-size new climbing frame, learning to ride the electric quad bike and the ... Read More

BEACH-BODY BEAUTIFUL

27 Jun

Elemis-body-scrub
If you are soon to be off on your hols and slightly apprehensive about baring all in a bikini, I have just the product for you. I promise you will love it as much as I do!

For beach-body, beautiful skin, that is nourished, smooth and glowing - look to Elemis Spa@Home. More specifically their Skin Nourish body scrub and Frangipani Monoi salt glow. Using them after just a couple of days completely transforms your skin! I have used many different body scrubs and exfoliators from high end brands, as well as the high street, but nothing compares to these guys. A weekly Elemis scrub i ... Read More

20130623_125306
I was in Harrods at the weekend and could not help but notice the fabulous maternity department - right next door to baby and children where I was shopping bargains for A. If you haven't been lately the department has had a complete makeover and is just fabulous. You will find all the best maternity brands - Blossom, 9London, as well as a great collection of ready-to-wear that is suitable for a bump.

See for yourself - How divine is this rail?! Most styles are not even maternity and several dresses I am lusting after for my holiday wardrobe. For me, this is what maternity shoppi ... Read More

ARBONNE

21 Jun

RE9
This is just the best - Swiss beauty brand, Arbonne. The five-step anti-aging regime that contains the miracle ingredient RE9. Think creme de la mere, but without the price tag. Arbonne is based on purely botanical principles so it's 100% safe to use in pregnancy too! The Arbonne promise - 'Pure, Safe and Beneficial'.

I have been using my RE9 anti-aging kit for nearly two weeks now and my skin has never looked better. For me Arbonne is a new brand that I had yet to discover. It's not a product you can purchase in-store making it ultra exclusive. I received my RE9 set from Louis ... Read More

I’M BACK

20 Jun

IMG_20130615_185419
Sorry I have been a bit quiet these last few days. I was determined to keep in touch whilst on holiday but seem to have failed miserably. I blame the sunshine, seaside and all-round Italian delights - I hope you don't blame me!?

We had a lovely time and a wonderful wedding. A was the perfect bridesmaid and after a week of fun-filled days at the beach, late nights socialising and general family fun she was converted into a true Mediterranean baby. Luckily she is very adaptable (as are all little ones, I don't think we give them enough credit sometimes) and had no objections being ... Read More

HOLIDAY ESSENTIALS

11 Jun

Clarins Sun milk for children and babies. 100% mineral sun cream, water resistant and just delicious. It's only £18!
Packing for holiday is both exciting and stressful. I emphasize stressful as I am packing for two, under a strict weight limit! (Thanks Ryanair!) I emphasize excitement as we are off to Italy for a wedding!

Thankfully I have my wedding outfit sorted (that's the main thing!?) and A is a bridesmaid so I don't even need to think about hers. The rest needs to be seaside-suitable with a few glam looks for evening soirees.

If you are off on your holidays soon and wondering what to take with a little on in tow - Here are some Mumzynot suitcase-essentials. I have learnt t ... Read More
