26 Mar

IMG_20140325_082719
As an Elemis fan I love receiving their latest goodies. From my hospital bag to my bathroom cabinet Elemis is a main presence, and these new Limited Edition Cellular recovery Skin Bliss Capsules have just taken over as the favorite. I am 100% in love with this product. I would never usually look twice at 'skin capsules' they always seemed to fussy. but after testing them out there is literally no going back.

As a set of two, Rose for day and Lavender by night, you simply apply one capsule pre-moisturise. (Squeeze out the oil and rub in your pa ... Read More

WINTER SKIN

16 Jan

philosophy
I don't know about you but winter always plays havoc with my skin. Being nearly 8 months pregnant I have a little hormonal help on my side (that third trimester glow is peeking through) but cold weather and central heating are not the best combination for anyone's skin. Lack of sunshine does not help either. Usually about this time of year we are jetting off somewhere exotic, no such luck. How I am missing my winter sun.

On a more positive note there is help at hand, thanks to some great new skincare discoveries. (And those old favorites - Estee Lauder's advanced night repair is ... Read More

12 Dec

The maternity dungarees is a style classic. I just love it and ever since announcing my second pregnancy I have been dying to wear one. I was thinking denim dungas from Topshop maternity, but then Envie de Fraise sent me an email asking if I wanted to sample some of their collection - a dungarees was among the selection. Yes please.

Envie de Fraise is a chic Parisian maternity label, recently launched online in the UK and well worth a visit if you are in the market for some new maternity bits. At first glace I see elements of Hatch Collection - leather detail knits and hareem pa ... Read More

PACAPOD. IT’S ONE TO WATCH

11 Dec

Pacapod-moab
A new changing bag brand has recently appeared on my style radar. Hey there Pacapod, most specifically the Pacapod Moab. I received one a couple of weeks ago to sample and am very impressed.

Not only is the Moab chic and stylish, I am loving the satchel design with a nod to the highlands in grey tweed and leather, but it also features a clever mini-rucksack organisational element that is something a little different. This is the Pacapod USP and kinda explains the name pack - a - pod? Two little pods for separate bits and bobs that can be added or removed to the main ba ... Read More

SUSIE AND TOTO BABY BOUTIQUE

17 Oct

Susie-and-toto
I was recently introduced to a divine online baby and toddler boutique, Susie and Toto, that offers an adorable collection for style conscious little ones. (Or more realistically, their mums.) If you like quality combined with style this online store is well worth a visit. Think cashmere dresses, wool knits, moccasin booties, tweed coats and a delectable sets for newborns, all made in Italy.

I was lucky enough to receive a rather cute dress and cardi set for A in grey and navy. Initially I was a bit worried our new outfit would be too small. (Sizes go from 3 months to 24 months ... Read More

ELEMIS PRO-INTENSE LIFT-EFFECT

3 Sep

elemis
As a beauty obsessive I like to keep in the loop when it comes to the latest new products - whether it be a miracle face cream, hot new nail colour or must-have hair treatment. Just a few days ago Elemis launched an exciting new range that I feel is worthy of a Mumzynot mention: The Pro-Intense Lift Effect System. A pioneering new range of firming and lifting creams that help to improve the skins tone and elasticity.

As a busy mum to an energetic toddler and now in the second trimester of pregnancy number two, a strict beauty regime has never been more important. There is no ti ... Read More

ANGEL’S FACE

28 Aug

angel
This season we have had five weddings, that's a lot of outfits to plan! For our most recent nuptials I was relieved to discover that (for A at-least) I need not worry, thanks to Angel's Face. Just the week before I was contacted by their PR and offered the choice of any colour or style from their utterly divine collection of Tutu's. Could there be a more perfect outfit for a little girl at a wedding?!

An Angel's Face tutu is not just any tutu. They are infact the UK's no.1 best selling pettitskirts and upon receiving ours, I chose a chic champagne and lace, I can see exactly why ... Read More

A MUST-HAVE

2 Aug

yoyo
I introduced you the the Babyzen YOYO a while back and at the time was keen to get my hands on one to test-drive. We travel a lot with A, both long and short haul and the YOYO looked like just the perfect stroller for travelling. Well good news, on our last trip to Italy this month I was lucky enough to get one sent over to sample.

I loved it. Infact the YOYO went beyond my expectations. Not only is it lightweight, compact and comfortable for A, but it's uber-stylish. It's smooth and sleek both in looks and manoeuvrability whilst still being able to fold (one handed) down to the ... 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

THE SWAG BAG

7 Jun

IMG_20130603_150611
I was recently sent a new changing bag from JJ Cole. The Swag Bag in question is a mid-range everyday style, perfect for those fashion conscious mums on a budget.

The Swag bag is a cute hobo-style in low-key silver and black print, with essential across body strap for hanging from your stroller. Inside you will find all the necessary compartments required for your babies essentials - wipes, nappies, muslins, toys and snacks. There are also two insulated side pockets for bottles, as well as the baby bag-must-have - co-ordinated changing mat.

To keep your keys, phon ... Read More
