Mustela Baby Skincare Review & Giveaway

For the last few years, a trip to the Pharmacie was always a highlight of my French holidays. Caudalie, L’Occatane and Vichy are some of the brands I usually look out for, but now Violet is here my love for French skincare has extended to her too, having recently discovered lovely French brand for babies and expectant mothers, called Mustela. When I was pregnant their Light Legs Gel got me through the night with my horrific fidget legs, but today we will be talking about their extensive baby range, plus I have a few goodies to giveaway at the end…

Violets Seven & Eight months update!

Ok – bad Mum alert as I’ve just realised that as Violet is days away from being NINE months and I have failed to write her seven AND eighth month updates.

In the background Christmas…

Review: Fisher-Price Zoom ‘n Crawl Monster

With Christmas fast approaching, I’ve been thinking a lot about what to buy for Violet – it’s been a hard one to plan in advance as a first time Mum as I have no idea where she will be in her development and what her interests will be –  it literally it all changes month-by-month at the moment! Now Christmas is not far off I think I’ve got to a point where I can buy her something that will fit where she is at – she is crawling, pulling up and just generally on the move as much as possible…

Christmas: Beauty Stocking Fillers

I don’t know whats wrong with me this year – usually I have a ban on talking about Christmas until after my birthday (next week, don’t worry – still time to pop your presents in the post!) but this year I just can’t help myself. I think it’s because this Christmas is the first as a family I’m getting in the festive spirit SUPER early. But – surely this is good as it means I can post about all my present ideas with plenty of time, before the mad dash of Christmas shopping in December! In the last couple of…
