When I was growing up one of my favourite things was a tatty old red sleeping bag my mum had owned for years – there were holes in it – but I just loved crawling in there and snuggling up. It’s amazing how kids find the simplest things entertaining! I was recently sent a luxurious sleeping sac for the toddler to try; This is no ordinary sleeping back! This is a snuggle sac. Recommended for […]
I have two babies. I get very little sleep. The more they sleep the more I get to rest but it’s not something you can necessarily control – therefore I do welcome natural and gentle ways of helping them fall asleep and stay asleep. This Works is well known for it’s Sleep Sprays, lovely lavender scented sprays – I reviewed one here. They also do one for babies! There are million Lavender scented sleep solutions for […]
Le Couvent des Minimes is a French brand which is a new discovery to me; the brand is related to Melvita and L’Occitane today, the Convent has an interesting history (read here) and today has been transformed into a Hotel & Spa.

I am a huge fan of organic skincare for H – I mean this child has a pretty amazing selection of skincare because I like to make sure I am using gentle products on his skin. I have realised after 2 years that some products are worth repurchasing and some just aren’t. Childs Farm is the brain child of Joanna Jensen, a mum of 2 who tried and failed to find a natural product to […]
About the time that I was expecting Baby H, I noticed a new range from Cussons called Mum & Me – a range of affordable skincare products for mum pre and post pregnancy, and also for babies. I won’t lie – I have stuck to organic products with high quality ingredients for Baby H wherever possible; I don’t see the point of adding unnecessary toxins to something as pure as a little baby. When I […]
I went for a Jinny Tattoo a few weeks ago, which the girls adored, so I bought a home glitter tattoo kit to play with from eBay (item here for £22 – free shipping and they sent it with EMS which is a bonus). So, here are some pics of the tattoos I did on Megan (aged 9) and the older one. Megs chose a dragon: That’s her belly….
