Happy Christmas! This last week has been manic. On top of various events and Christmas parties we have been super busy preparing the house for Christmas day. (Builders were out on the 21st and carpets went down just a few days before. So in a word, hectic!)

This year we hosted, with both families! It was a lovely day and so nice to be able to celebrate all together at home, but I must admit I didn't relax as much as I usually would. I really don't know how anyone can host Christmas on their own?! I am so lucky to have a 'chef' husband, 'sous chef' brother-in-la ... Read More

Butter London, Cuppa £12
This seasons hottest nail colour doesn't scream look at me, but pale and neutral nails can still make a statement.

Here is my pick of favourite colours for chic-mums and their mini-me's. (If you are pregnant or looking for your little one I recommend both Butter London and Little BU. Both brands are non-toxic and 100% safe to use.)

Love, Jess x

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

The latest must-have maternity skincare range is from Bloom and Blossom. As well as offering the ultimate in mummy and baby pampering, Bloom and Blossom is the confirmed product of choice for the Duchess of Cambridge. Kate is now using the range as part of her post baby, body-beautiful routine. Worth a go then, no?

Personally I love the sound of the rejuvenating facial spritz . Great for your hospital bag or simply when you need a little pick-me-up. The mother to be gift set would also make a great baby shower gift.

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

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

Pregnancy is no better time to indulge and pamper. so why not  top up your bathroom cabinet with some mum-to-be beauty must-haves. I used every one of these products during my pregnancy, so each one is a personal recommendation.

For stretchmark prevention, Emily Evans mother and Bio Oil, night and day. I used Bio Oil at night after a bath and Emily's cream in the mornings, for more lustrous moisturisation. It is vital to keep your skin nourished and supple.

For indulgent bubble baths and scented candles, look to Abahana. All th ... Read More

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will know that I have a number of favorite beauty brands. This is because I am obsessed with beauty. For me, beauty and fashion go hand-in-hand. There are so many fabulous products out there, to tackle all aspects of beauty, that it is important to discover them all! With this in mind, I was thrilled to receive some new additions to my skin-care collection - Over Easter I was sent  a large tub of Elemis'  Pro-collagen Marine cream and a bottle of Japenese Camellia body oil. Fabulous!

My parcel arrived beautifully packaged in a speci ... Read More
