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

My official due date is now just two days away. The wait is on. It could however be another two weeks (!) so I am trying to keep busy in the hope that time does not drag...

Yesterday I heading into London for some beauty treatments with London Mother's Club at the Cowshed Spa in Selfridges. It was so nice to be treated to a little bit of pampering. My pedicure  included an extremely relaxing neck, shoulder and head massage, as well as a foot and leg massage. Cowshed offer a whole range of treatments as well as specifically tailored mum-to-be packages, so well worth a v ... Read More

Yesterday I began to pack my hospital bag, starting with some beauty essentials. Perhaps not the most important contents of said bag, but still pretty crucial to make my trip (and possible overnight stay) a little more luxurious. Let's face it hospitals are far from it, so I need all the help I can get.

I have always been one of those girls that follows a strict skincare regime - cleanse, tone and moisturise - no matter what. The same will be the case at that time in the next few weeks. As soon as I get the opportunity I will be in that shower, hair washed, cl ... Read More

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

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

Say hello to Dreamtone by Lancome - A seaweed facial that is said to be the ultimate in hydration and the latest must-have treatment for skin pigmentation. Kate Middleton is reported to be a big fan. She had allegedly been using the product as part of her post-baby skincare regime. Sounds like a beautiful-mummy-must-have then?!

Deamtone is available in three made-to-measure formulas, depending on your skin type, developed specifically for each pigmentation profile. The triple action formula has been seven years in the making and is generating a real buzz amongst press and the be ... Read More

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

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
