Snuza HeroMD | Portable Breathing Monitor for Newborn Babies

When Poppy was first born, I used to stare at her for hours as she lay in the white Moses basket next to me. She looked so tiny and perfect. She was a good sleeper. She was up every three to four hours, but would soon drift off after her…

Best Shower Products: Time for a 5 Minute Pamper

Primark PS… Glow Iridescent Priming Elixir

I went into Primark in the hope that my local branch would carry the Liquid Glitter Eyeshadows AKA the Stila Magnificent Metals dupes that I had heard Annie from Musings of A Makeup Junkie talk about a few weeks back. Unsurprisingly, they were nowhere to be found and the staff hadn’t…

The Freelance Mum by Annie Ridout

Being my own boss, with flexible hours would be an absolute dream. I read several books last year including #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, The Multi-Hyphen Method by Emma Gannon and Little Black Book: A Toolkit For Working Women by Otegha Uwagba, looking for practical advice on how to make this reality. Although I…

ColourPop BFF Volumizing Mascara

ColourPop’s first ever mascara has finally arrived! It was released the day AFTER I ordered my Mystery Bag and I was devasted that I’d missed out. I considered making another order, however, I’m glad I waited because, little did I know, the ColourPop Gods had already popped one inside my bag.…

A Mrs Hinch Cleaning Haul Update

The hype around Mrs Hinch appears to be slowing down on my Twitter feed. It’s all Marie Kondo this and ‘spark of joy’ that. With the upcoming launch of her first-ever book; Hinch Yourself Happy: All The Best Cleaning Tips To Shine Your Sink And Soothe Your Soul, due to be released…

I was kindly sent a…

Maui Moisture Coconut Milk Shampoo & Conditioner For Dry Hair

I don’t really spend a lot of time or money my hair, it’s actually severely neglected. It hasn’t been the same since my pregnancy. It was always thick and frizzy but now it’s incredibly dry and prone to breakage. My postpartum hair is also starting to go silvery grey at…

Once the bills have been paid, any money that I have left at the end of the month usually goes towards a few makeup products and treats for little miss. I try not to spoil her, however, buying girls clothes can become seriously addictive. Everything is so cute and sparkly,…

What Was Inside My ColourPop Mystery Bag?

When I saw on Twitter that ColourPop was releasing a limited edition mystery bag for $25, I was very sceptical. I’ve always thought of these ‘mystery’ style goodie bags as nothing more than a ploy for brands to shift products that aren’t selling well or unpopular shades. My curiosity, as you’ve probably…

Procoal Marine Moisture Sheet Mask

Any regular readers will already be aware that running a bubble bath and popping on a sheet mask is my favourite way to relax. It’s become something of a Sunday night ritual that sets me up for the start of the week. Although the skincare trend has taken over the high…

REN Clean Skincare Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic

I still have a few traditional, creamy exfoliators in my collection (for example, the Antipodes Reincarnation Pure Facial Exfoliator is an absolute dream to use), however, tonics have become my new favourite way to smooth and brighten my complexion. They completely confused me at first (they still do to some extent),…
