What’s Inside the Scottish Baby Box?

With only four weeks to go until my baby girl’s due date, I was so happy and relieved when my Baby Box was finally delivered to our new address just a few days ago. In Scotland, every newborn baby due on or after 15 August 2017 is entitled to a free baby box from…

Garden Wishlist with GBC Group Summerhouses*

Our new house may not have the lush fuss-free fake grass like our old one did, but what our garden does have is tonnes of potential. I’ve been looking online for new accessories and furniture to breathe a bit of life into it and give it more character. As you can…

Girl’s Bedroom Ideas with Room To Grow

Since moving into our new house, decorating my girl’s bedrooms have been my own little project. I shouldn’t really say decorating, I’ve not so much as picked up a paintbrush and Ross has built all the furniture – let’s call it accessorising instead. The plan is to move Penny out…

Protect Your Family this Summer with LloydsPharmacy Solero Sun Lotion

This summer my family have enjoyed BBQs nearly every weekend, picnics in the park, the sand between our toes and ice lollies by the box load. We have also gone through an incredible amount of suncream to ensure we stay as safe as possible. Penny and I are very fair and turn tomato-red as soon as…

HelloFresh Update: Week 2 | A Recipe Box Review & Discount Code

Since my initial last HelloFresh post just over two weeks ago, I’ve sampled another two boxes and I thought I’d keep you updated with my progress. HelloFresh was kind enough to send me my first box free of charge in exchange for an honest review. Ross and I were so…

A Heatwave Essential | Proto-col Intense Protection Day Moisturiser SPF 50+

It’s finally here! I’ve been trying this product out for a while now but couldn’t fill you in until it’s official launch. I was very lucky to recently receive an amazing package full of products from Proto-col, a beauty brand that specialises in creating natural mineral cosmetics and advanced skincare.…

The Derma V10 Clay Mask Collection | A Face Mask for Only £1.99?!

If there’s one skincare product I can’t get enough of it’s a face mask. My collection is getting a little outrageous and in definite need of a declutter. I’m currently trying out a mask which could prove to be my all-time favourite (review coming soon). This is a bold claim I know, but…

Hospital Bag Checklist | Skip Hop Duo Signature Weekender Changing Bag

With only six weeks to go, not only am I on a mission to get the baby’s nursery decorated but I have already started to pack my hospital bag to make completely sure that I am prepared for our little princess’ arrival. Being organised really helps alleviate some of my anxiety,…

XO Balm | Natural Care for Poor Stressed-Out Skin

First things first, how adorable is the packaging of today’s product?! I mean, how can you not fall in love with the design of this little pot? Not only is it as cute as a button (sorry) but there is also a hidden mirror inside and a scoop, plus it…

We Moved House! | Our Future Plans and Ideas*

Many of you will already know that recently I moved house. I’m currently in the prosses of decorating both Penny and the baby’s room in anticipation for her arrival. I’ve spent hours on Pinterest and browsing through Etsy and found some adorable accessories which I can’t wait to share with…

Antipodes Manuka Honey Skin Brightening Eye Cream

Antipodes is definitely up there amongst Kiehl’s, Caudalie and REN as one of my all-time favourite skincare brands. The Manuka Honey Aura Mask, Reincarnation Exfoliator and Vanilla Pod Day Cream (review coming shortly) are just three examples of amazing Antipodes products that no bathroom or dressing table should be without. I…

Proto-col Natural Mineral Cosmetics | Baked Mineral Colour Correct

Recently I was sent a lovely package full of goodies from Proto-col, a beauty brand that specialises in natural mineral cosmetics and naturally advanced skincare. One unusual, but beautiful, product from their collection really surprised me, it’s unlike anything I’ve tried before. The Baked Mineral Colour Correct was developed alongside top UK make-up…

Seize The Summer with HelloFresh | A Recipe Box Review & Discount Code

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed a mouth-watering array of dishes popping up on my feed recently. This usually only happens when we’ve actually managed to find a babysitter and have escaped to a fancy, grown-up restaurant (McDonald’s not included) for date night. This sadly only happens once…

New Suncare for 2018 | Part 2 – Altruist Dermatologist Sunscreen

Over the last few days, Penny and I have been testing out the Altruist Dermatologist Sunscreen. In part one, we put the Evy Technology Sunscreen Mouse to the test. While Penny loved the novelty of applying it and I appreciated it’s non-sticky, fragrance-free formula, £25 for a suncream is incredibly expensive.…

Evening Skincare Routine for Combination Skin with Kiehl’s, Antipodes & Caudalie

Mornings are a bit of a rush in my house and sacrifices need to be made if I’m going to have time to top up my caffeine levels and spend some time with the baby before she’s shipped off to my mums for a few hours. Therefore my morning skincare routine…
