Infant eczema – what works and what doesn’t

There's a Facebook parenting group I'm a member of which sees the same questions posted again and again. You see one group of mums get to a point where they feel like they're getting the hang of this bizarre new lifestyle they've created, then another influx of newborns appear, and the cycle begins again. One … Continue reading Infant eczema – what works and what doesn’t

I’m back!

I'm back! Things have been really quiet for me on the blog for a while, but time away has confirmed just how much I love blogging and how much I missed writing regular posts, so I'm making a commitment to coming back to my little WordPress site. This autumn marks nine years since I started … Continue reading I’m back!

Ethical shopping: not just for the middle class

Earlier this week I read a Guardian article about Primark and Marks and Spencer. The former had reported profits the same day the latter reported a loss, and so cue the Life and Style section going wild (or as wild as you can get while sampling the latest technique for pumpkin soup). Lauren Cochrane, the … Continue reading Ethical shopping: not just for the middle class

Plus size mannequins – a campaign too big for its boots

The photo below was posted onto my Facebook newsfeed tonight, along with over 1500 comments and almost 38k likes. I’m going to go out there and say a rough estimate of 90% of comments were in favour of the mannequins. I disagreed, and here’s why: As much as I am anticipating hateful or negative comments … Continue reading Plus size mannequins – a campaign too big for its boots

Beauty review: a cocoa butter to die for (if you try to eat it)

So yesterday I blogged about the Skylash mascara I had finished off. Another product I finished this week is Superdrug’s Natural Cocoa Butter Body Lotion. Put simply, I love the stuff. It smells amazing, it’s cheap and it works wonders. I guess I could stop the review there! But where I lack in natural chattiness … Continue reading Beauty review: a cocoa butter to die for (if you try to eat it)

Beauty review: Collection Skylash mascara

I’ve finished a couple of products this week, including a mascara I wanted to review when I first bought it. I’ve had about a month’s use out of it, and I think now is probably a better time to blog about what it was like to use than when it was new to me. I was … Continue reading Beauty review: Collection Skylash mascara

Beauty review: Collin Resultime mini facial kit

A little while ago I got sent some lovely samples from Collin Ltd to try out their new Resultime range. I hadn’t given much thought to anti-aging products just yet in life (and will protest that I am too young for some years to come), but there’s no harm in good preparation, and I love … Continue reading Beauty review: Collin Resultime mini facial kit

The best gift for your skin this Christmas

We all know winter can be harsh on our skin. The chapped lips that came in October were the first clue that I should have stayed indoors from then on and remained so until March. My face may have been nicer to me had that been the case. Unfortunately, life got in the way of … Continue reading The best gift for your skin this Christmas

Beauty product review: new nail varnish!

Yesterday I told you all about the new beauty products I had bought, and one I had to try out immediately was one of the Collection nail varnishes. The colour of the nail varnish is called Bongo Beat and comes from the 60 Seconds Hot Looks range of Collection products. I’d best describe it as … Continue reading Beauty product review: new nail varnish!
