As someone who has suffered from cystic acne from the age of 13, I’ve tried out loads of skin products over the years. I’ve always hoped to find that holy grail product and had some luck with various acids. However, when it comes to cleansers, toners and moisturisers, I’ve finally come to realise that nothing is probably going to help that much. Over the last few months, I’ve been trying out some Skintifique products without using anything else to see what happened. With scientific backing, claims to keep out pollution and metals and the promise to be kind to sensitive skin, these products were something different for me to try.
Mooncups are something that I have thought about using several times over the past few years. Several times they’ve been mentioned or I’ve seen them when browsing on the internet. However, I’ve never taken action on it…until now! One of my New Year’s Resolutions this year was to start being more eco-friendly. I’m not doing anything drastic, just making small changes. However, the groundwork for this one started a few months ago! View Post
It’s very nearly the first anniversary of when I first took Autumn for baby swimming lessons with Puddle Ducks East Kent. We were trying out all sorts of different groups and things at the time as I found my confidence. I thought swimming would be a fantastic bonding experience for us both. However, most of all, I thought it would be great for her. There are many health benefits to it. Amongst other things, it helps babies, toddlers and children improve their coordination and it builds their muscles. When she was younger, I also found that it tired Autumn out so much she’d have an absolutely huge nap! So, if you’re desperate for sleep, you might want to give swimming a go!
After Autumn was born, I used normal cotton baby towels on her. They did the job and we had some absolutely beautiful towels gifted to us when she was first born. However, when I first used a bamboo towel on her, I was amazed. The material was softer and much more absorbent.
Last night, my husband and I had the pleasure of being invited to the official launch of the new extension at Showcase Cinema de Lux Bluewater. This saw four new state-of-the-art screens officially opened. We were really looking forward to it (and not just because it was our first child-free night together in a while!) View Post
