Mission: Sleep. Part 2, Sleep Guide

Can we say it’s officially Spring? Brighter days and the clocks going forward feels like a distinct shift in the seasons (despite the ‘April Showers’…grrr). I have been quietly cultivating my little nest over here. My mission to create the perfect sleep environment continues and over the last couple of months I’ve been collecting some of the cosiest and most comfortable linens and cushions to make sleeping as easy and

Room Service Please! It’s Mothers Day…

As mums we are so selfless. Even when it comes to Mother’s Day, a day dedicated to us, we are happy with just about anything…a cup of tea in bed, a sweet card, a homemade piece of pottery. Understated, meaningful simplicity should always reign…but. When you receive a weighty green bag painted with pretty gold letters- Harrods– full of luxurious pampering goodies, you can’t help but feel overly excited. It’s

Mission: Sleep. Part 1-Leesa

I know there is the saying that ‘it’s nice to come home to your own bed’ but I have to admit that recently, I have been staying in some seriously comfortable hotel beds. A combination of a supportive mattress, the puffiest pillows and the softest bed linen have provided me with some of the best sleep I’ve had in years and an ongoing conversation with Ross that ‘we should try

Happy New Year: The Feel Good Post

I do like January especially after the chaos of Christmas. I like the fact that it’s an excuse to reset and ditch all the bad habits you got into the year before. I don’t like the pressure of dieting and exercising fads which we all get pummelled with…don’t you think the word ‘diet’ is so 90s? I like to think of January as being a time to reconnect with yourself

Whenever I use them I feel like I’ve just been to a spa and the scent stays with me all day making me feel so good. One brand I have long been a fan of is Aesop. I am obsessed. We have Aesop handwash

Heroes In My Beauty Bag

I just wanted to share some of the beauty products I have been using lately. Some I have discovered recently and others have been old faithfuls in my beauty bag. As I have got older my skin, eyebrows, eyelashes and lips have all changed and I’ve found I’ve had to look for products to counteract these changes. Unfortunately there is nothing glamorous about it –  if you’re finding you’re eyelashes are

Bioderma Kids SPF50+ Sun Mousse: A Review

We have been trialing a couple of the Bioderma suncare products during this first week of being away. Both myself and Rex are olive skinned but we still burn easily when we have not been exposed to the sun for a while. The brand’s new SPF 50+ sunscreen mousse for kids is aimed at giving long lasting protection whilst making the process of application fun and easy. I have also been using

The Mindful Toddler

Last week I was sent a pack of cards called Mindful Monsters. I don’t usually talk about products but these interested me because they are all about helping our children to be mindful – to build resilience and kindness through being thoughtful. Practicing Mindful Monsters Every parent will agree that life gets so busy and whilst we might try and take time out ourselves to do some yoga or meditation, how
