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…

RIO’S NEW PLAYROOM

At long last, I’ve managed to capture Rio’s playroom! I still can’t believe my (not so little) baby is coming up to 16 months old in just a few weeks. He’s the most curious and alert little boy which never misses a trick. He’s super active, loves books, building blocks, animals, cuddling, kissing, and running around the house causing havoc. I have been wanting to create a playful little den and sanctuary in our house for ages – somewhere just for him, with lots of fun and relaxing elements, with all his favourite toys and books, and a teepee he can escape into.

WINTER SKINCARE ROUTINE

January 18, 2019

I have to admit, my skin (face) always looks better during the winter. Which might sound crazy to some, as the British winter can be so harsh and interchangeable, but now that I have found what really works for my type of skin, it’s never been better. Which again, is a big statement, as I’ve probably never been this tired in my life – and is clearly a huge testament to the products I’ve been using, and being consistent with it, all day, every day…  Continue Reading
