As you are well aware, I love smelly candles, my house is filled with them. This latest edition from M&J London is my new favorite.

Not only do the combined scents of Lavender, Manuka honey and Cocoa smell delicious, but this candle is produced ethically and made here in the UK. In-fact all products produced by this exciting new brand are made with tender loving care, in London, ethically and home grown, using natural ingredients and recycled glass. This makes my new candle extra special.

The perfect mother day gift. Choose your favorite scent and click it hom ... Read More

AA candle
There is nothing better than a divine smelling candle to set the mood.

My new gift from Aromatherapy Associates is now sitting in little A's nursery. Every evening I light the candle just before bed time, so her room fills with relaxing scents of jasmine and geranium. Paired with the magical lighting from her lantern  (and her best friend Gentle Giraffe) she fall asleep as soon as her head hits the pillow.

If you are like me and just love scented candles (I have them in every room) then Aromatherapy Associates should definitely be top of your sh ... Read More

This cold weather really takes it's toll on your skin. I always find that with the cold temperatures comes dryness, and that dull skin tone that makes you look far from perky. A nice sumptuous body lotion is the perfect answer. One of my favorite beauty brands - L'occitane - has just the one.

Shea Honey Mom balm is specifically formulated for mums and mums-to-be. There are no hidden nasties and all ingredients are natural and rich - It is 100% safe to use with a baby on board.

Luxurious Organic Shea Butter blended with coconut and sunflower oil is lightly fragra ... Read More

This is one of the latest images from Givenchy's SS13 campaign and I just love it.

Riccardo Tisci is renowned for creating controversial images - think that Rottweiler T-shirt. He likes to get people talking and create pictures that we have not seen before. His latest campaign is no exception.

Gorgeous model mum Mariacarla Boscono is photographed with her own baby daughter. The image to me represents the epitome of motherhood- strength, vulnerability, love and beauty.

A fabulous picture I think you will agree. I cannot ... Read More
