I loved the cuddles. Feeling my baby snuggling into my chest has got to be one of the best feelings on the planet, and with it having been just her and I 90% of the time, I got a lot of them! Continue reading “The things I loved & loathed about being in hospital”

What is not to love about Summer?

My hair gets lighter, my skin gets darker, and the benefits of Vitamin D (also known as the “sunshine vitamin”) are endless. Not to mention that all the best songs are ones made about Summer (in my opinion 😉 ! It is just the happiest time of year!

I am a lover of all things gold, bronze, copper, and anything in between, which is why you can only imagine how I squealed with joy when I laid my eyes on the Clarins Summer 2017 collection! #HeartEyesEmoji

Baby’s best buys :)

Every since my maiden post back in August on my Top 12 Baby Essentials, I have been overwhelmed by the number of messages I have received from new and expectant mommies, and how they felt my post helped them.

I have been promising a full write up on what I would recommend you buy when expecting a babe, so finally, here it is! I have given a list that is probably missing a few things, but hopefully pretty comprehensive. In some cases I have added pics where I thought they might help. I hope that if you are expecting, that this helps guide you a little bit.

REVIEW | John Frieda Sheer Blonde

According to a study into the psychology of hair color, “Blonde is actually seen as the most covetable hair color among women, since it’s rare but not quite as polarizing as red. And yes, it’s true: Blondes really do have more fun (or are at least seen that way, anyway). Research shows that those with light hair are perceived as more bubbly and open—and sometimes needy. ”
