Prioritising Pampering in January

The buzz word of 2018 was self-care but, unlike some fads, the self-care trend is one that is worth sticking with as we enter 2019. Self-care can mean different things to different people but, generally speaking, it is about taking care of yourself. One way to do this is to take time to pamper yourself and, if ever there was a month which needed extra pampering, it would be January...

Beauty – Pre-Holiday Beauty Checklist

So, we go on honeymoon a week today (in case you‘ve somehow missed me talking about it in almost every post over the last few weeks). It’s safe to say I’m pretty excited (but nervous too, as I’m not a good flyer).

It feels like I’ve been waiting ages for August to be over (don’t get me wrong, I usually have nothing against August, it’s just that September feels SO much closer to my due date!).  Being September, I can now confidently say that I will have a baby next month, eek! I actually have a lot of things planned for this month, compared...

Pampering Treat 

As Carly’s birthday treat last weekend didn’t exactly go to plan and I only saw her for a few hours on her actual birthday, when I had some time alone with her yesterday I decided to treat us both and we went and had our nails done at a local salon.     I know this isn’t something everyone will agree with but it’s not hurting anyone and Carly absolutely loved...
