Sunday Review: Sudocrem Care & Protect

When I was offered the chance to review Sudocrem Care & Protect cream, I was intrigued. I’ve only used normal Sudocrem before and found it brilliant. It’s been around for over 80 years. In fact, my mum used it on my brother and I when we were babies and swore by it. I’d been using it for spots for years before I used it on Autumn’s nappy rash. Recently, she’s been teething and this seems to have made the nappy rash situation worse! Continue reading “Sunday Review: Sudocrem Care & Protect”

Mrs Tickit’s Pantry and Rochester High Street

Last week, my Mum and I decided to pay a visit to Rochester. I love Rochester, with its many pubs and eateries. It also has a lovely variety of quirky shops, perfect for finding gifts for people or something unusual for yourself. I think it is one of the few places where you could probably find something for everyone. Continue reading “Mrs Tickit’s Pantry and Rochester High Street”

Sunday Review: Sassy Bloom Subscription Box (6 month old girl)

 

I heard of Sassy Bloom subscription boxes long before I found out I was pregnant. When I was offered the chance to review one, I thought I’d give it a go! Continue reading “Sunday Review: Sassy Bloom Subscription Box (6 month old girl)”

Sunday Review: Band t-shirts for mum/dad and baby!

Last year, shortly after I found out I was pregnant, my Dad’s friend told me about Little Rock Store. Since then I’ve been eager to own some of their merchandise. I love rock and metal, so to be able to buy mini band t-shirts for my baby is awesome! As well as other things like bibs, they also sell lullaby versions of some of my favourite albums.  Continue reading “Sunday Review: Band t-shirts for mum/dad and baby!”

Sunday Review: Bo&Bel Teething Necklace

This Sunday I am reviewing the ‘Elizabeth’ teething necklace from Bo&Bel.

This Sunday I’m reviewing a hexagonal teething necklace from Bo&Bel. Autumn has been teething since around the time she turned 3 months old in December and at almost 6 months, she has now reached that age where everything within reach goes in her mouth! I’ve been crushing on Bo&Bel‘s teething jewellery for quite some time, so when the opportunity to arose to review a necklace I gladly accepted the opportunity! Continue reading “Sunday Review: Bo&Bel Teething Necklace”

Sunday Review: Bambo Nature Nappies

This Sunday I am reviewing the award-winning eco-friendly Bambo Nature nappies (diapers).

A few weeks ago on Twitter, the Conscious Parent Company were asking for parent bloggers who would like to try and review the award-winning Bambo Nature Nappies. I’m not a huge fan of using disposable nappies, but struggle to fit reusable cloth nappies into my daily life (as lovely as they are). As these nappies are eco-friendly disposable nappies, they’re somewhere between the two, so I jumped at the chance! Continue reading “Sunday Review: Bambo Nature Nappies”

Sunday Review: Kat Von D 'Everlasting' liquid lipstick

This Sunday I’m reviewing the Kat Von D Cosmetics ‘Everlasting’ liquid lipstick in Double Dare.

I used to enjoy watching L.A. Ink and Miami Ink when I had channels they were available on. To some extent, I’ve followed Kat Von D ever since. I love looking at her clothing, makeup and tattoos on social media, as well as her adorable cats! When she released a makeup range a few years ago, I loved the look of the products! Part of the pulling power for me was the gorgeous colours and ranges, as well as the fact that her cosmetics are vegan and paraben free. Animal cruelty is something that is always at the back of my mind when I’m purchasing new makeup and I also am growing increasingly concerned about using parabens. When some of Kat Von D’s range was finally released in the UK in September 2016 in Debenhams I was delighted! I purchased a ‘Studded kiss’ lipstick in Motorhead, as well as the London Calling limited edition set (which is no longer available). This contained mini versions of Tattoo Liner in Trooper, ‘Everlasting’ liquid lipstick in Double Dare and ‘Studded kiss’ lipstick in Lolita.

Today I’m reviewing the Double Dare ‘Everlasting’ liquid lipstick.

Sunday Review: Nuby Zoo Chimes

This Sunday I am reviewing the Nuby Zoo Chimes Lion – this baby toy is one of Autumn’s favourites.

I decided this week I’d like to review one of Autumn’s baby toys. So, which better one to choose than one of her most favourites? Her Nuby Zoo Chimes lion, which we’ve named Lionel, always seems to make her smile. He’s a great distraction technique while I’m tiredly stumbling around the room of a morning trying to find a jumper that doesn’t have baby sick on it, do the clips on my bra up correctly and trying not to put my knickers on inside out (I have an 80% success rate).  Continue reading “Sunday Review: Nuby Zoo Chimes”

Sunday Review: Benefit Roller Lash

Reviewing Benefit Roller Lash mascara.

Welcome to my second Sunday Review. As I said last week, I thought I might mix things up a little bit, reviewing baby things and beauty products on alternate Sundays!

This week I am reviewing Benefit Roller Lash.

Sunday Review: Quinny Zapp Xtra 2 with birth inlay

Reviewing the Quinny Zapp Xtra 2 stroller with the from-birth inlay and with the Maxi Cosi Cabriofix 0+ car seat as a travel system.

Today I’m quite excited – partly because yesterday Autumn discovered her foot and I’m hoping today’s the day she puts it in her mouth (I find it so cute when babies so that) and because today is the start of the ‘Sunday Review’ posts I’ve decided to start writing!

I enjoy reviewing products – in the past I’ve been sent vouchers or products for free in return for reviewing them for companies. These have included Tesco’s Free From Range products, a Veet Easywax, YUM spreads and Dove compressed deodorants. As such, I thought I’d start reviewing products each Sunday here. My current plan is to review beauty products and baby things alternate weeks, but that may change in the future. Anyway, my review this week is about the Quinny Zapp Xtra 2 stroller and the birth inlay that you can use to enable you to use it for babies before the age of 6 months when they can use it without.
