YOUNGER SKIN WITH ELEMIS ULTRA SMART PRO-COLLAGEN

April 10, 2019
Elemis-5

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I’m very partial to ELEMIS products, having being a firm and loyal fan for years. Being the beauty junkie that I am, I get incredibly excited about any new skincare releases, and even more so when it’s from a brand I love so much, with the newly launched Ultra Smart Pro-Collagen range. The original Pro-Collagen has been my all-time go-to for over 3 years, and this new advanced series is all about promoting younger skin (yes please). Since hitting my thirties a few years back (and especially since becoming a mum), I have definitely noticed a big difference with my skin, in terms of fine lines and general texture. The key for me has actually been to simplify my routine (removing products, rather than adding more on), boosting hydration and finding those real super-charged products, which make all the difference…  Continue Reading

NEW CHAPTER

I’m writing this on a sunny Spring day in Oslo, three days after moving from London. Yes that’s right, we’ve moved abroad! I still can’t believe that this day has come, it still feels pretty surreal to the all of us. Although it’s something we have talked about since last summer, the fact that we’ve actually packed up our entire life over in London, and made such a huge move and life-changing decision, is still just sinking in…

MY WEEKLY HAIR CARE ROUTINE

March 16, 2019
beauty (2 of 6)

I get a lot of questions about my haircare routine; which products I use and what I do to maintain my look. I have tried my fair share of products throughout my time, and the particular combination I’m using at the moment is all my all-time favourite, not to mention, my hair has never been fuller, healthier or longer than what it is now. In terms of every day style, I’m pretty low-maintenance when it comes to my hair (because let’s face it, my time is pretty limited since becoming a mum). Fortunately, I prefer that effortless and natural look – and my hair care routine below, is so quick and easy.

MY JOURNEY WITH BREASTFEEDING (& ALL THE THINGS I WISH KNEW)

February 5, 2019

I’m not going to lie, I never gave much thought to breastfeeding before having Rio, other than it being something I really wanted to do. Little did I know how difficult it was going to be, and what an unexpected journey and experience, I certainly hadn’t realised I would have to deal with just days after giving birth (when your body is already so sore and all over the place, your hormones are through the roof, and you’re overwhelmed to the max). I can safely say, had it not for being incredibly stubborn and persevering with it, I would have probably had to stop breastfeeding after a few weeks. One of the main incentives for writing this blog post, is that there are so many things I wish I knew beforehand! Not to mention the difficulties and issues so many of us mama’s experience. Of course, not everyone wants to breastfeed (which is up to each and every mum – no judgement), then there are the ones who wants to breastfeed, but physically can’t do it due to supply (and certainly don’t need any added pressure on top of that), and then there are the ones like me, who was fortunate to have lots of milk and desperately wanted to breastfeed, but with a baby who wasn’t able to latch on properly… So here is my story, along with some personal advice which I hope might come of use to fellow or new mummy’s-to-be…
