Surviving Winter Skin With Aquaphor

As much as I love all the cosyness of winter the cold doesnt do my skin any good. Every year I end up dry, tight skin, flaky hands and chapped lips. Over the years I've tried a combination of different moisturisers, masks and creams. My vanity table is usually bulging with different products all promising to be heal my winter skin. But this year I've replaced all my potions and lotions with one multifunctional product! I was given the opportunity to take part in the My Aquaphor Challenge and try out their Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm and I've been delighted with the results.

Eucerin Aquaphor Smoothing Skin Balm has been a household favourite for repairing skin since 1925.  This multifunctional balm is made up of only 7 ingredients that's gental on skin. It creates a protective barrier whilst still allowing the skin to breath making it suitable for not only my skin but my boys too.

Over the past couple of weeks I've stored a tube of Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm in my bathroom and one in my handbag and I've discovered a whole range of uses for it.

I've been applying the Balm to my own skin  after every hand wash, dabbing it on any patches of dry skin and spreading it on my lips. The tube in my handbag has helped protect  my hands from the harsh winter wind while pushing Tommy's pushchair and on the school run. I've found it absorbs really quickly without leaving a greasy residue.

Its proved to be a fantastic barrier cream to use during nappy changes to help prevent nappy rash. Tommy has sensitive skin so I need to be careful which products I use on him, however this balm has been both gential and nourishing on his delicate skin.

Our house has been full of coughs and colds over the past few weeks so I've found Eucerin Soothing Skin Balm works a treat on red sore noses. I've been dabbing a little around Oliver's nose to protect from the constant nose blowing and on his lips as a barrier against the bitter cold weather.

I've be delighted with how useful and effective Eucerin Soothing Skin Balm has been on all the families skin. In future I won't be bothering with all the different lotions and potions and just be sticking this wonderful balm.

Recaro Easylife Stroller Review

Since Tommy turned one in June I've been searching for a lightweight and easy fold stroller. I do love our Flip XT2 pushchair from Mamas and Papa's and still intend to use it for longer walks. However, now Tommy is bigger it can be quite heavy to push at times and although it's relatively compact when folded I do find it rather heavy to lift especially if your trying to juggle a wiggly baby at the same time. 
I spent a good bit of time researching strollers, reading countless reviews and watch YouTube demo videos as I wanted something that would be practical for our needs and look good too. Eventuallylly I decided on the Recaro Easylife in the colour black, the usual RRP is £189.00 but I managed to get it on sale from for £139.00.
First Impressions Setting up the Recaro Easylife was very simple, all I had to do was flip open the chassis and attach the front wheels. Then it was ready to go! The black frame and wheels gives the stroller a more pr…

Tips For Creating Instagram Flatlays

If you follow me on Instagram you will know am quite partial to posting a flatlay, I like how they mix up my grid and allow me to be a little creative. I find them really quick and easy to shoot and lighting is rarely an issue (natural lighting only). In no way I am claiming to be an expert but I have learnt a few tricks along.
Backdrop The backdrop is a key element of my flatlays. I tend to use two different textures layered together, this could be a white bedsheet and faux  fur blanket or wooden flooring and a throw.  I like to change the textures seasonally, in winter I favour faux furs and in summer lighter fabrics. I find using the same backdrop several times gives continuity to my feed and inkeeping with the tone. 

Theme & Colour Pallet  Before creating a flatlay I always have rough idea in my head if how I want it to look or what I would like it to portray. The image also has to fit in with my current instagram grid colour pallet. For example when creating the image below …

Micralite FastFold Pushchair Review

We where estastic to have recently been  given the opportunity to try out the new Micralite FastFold Pushchair with our one year old Tommy.  It could not of come at a better time as for the pervious couple of months we had been switching between using  our bigger travel system and light weight stroller depending on the occasion. Ideally I wanted to have one pushchair that was just as efficient for city trips as it was for a bit of country off roading without comprising on comfort and the FastFold promised to do just that. 
First Impressions  Assembling the FastFold was super easy, all I had to do was click on the rear wheels and attach the seat linner and it was ready to go! I thought the product had an overall good quality feel about it. It was sturdy, with large pneumatic tires but still compact in size. I loved the colours and design of the special "Festival" edition. The design is different to most pushchairs as the FastFold is wider at the front than it is at the rear.…
