5 minute mum makeup

I don't know about you, but I'm terrible at worrying (remembering) about makeup at the best of times. Now I'm a mum, I find it even harder to fit a makeup routine into the mix, and am lacking motivation most of the time. However that lack of time doesn't stop me noticing that actually my… Continue reading 5 minute mum makeup

My Winter Skin Saviour: Nordic-C Arctic Berry Cocktail

Now that the clocks have changed, winter seems to instantly be upon us. Living in Scotland, that means a sudden change in temperature, from mild, hitting-double-digits days to ice-cold mornings and cold, dark evenings. Since that seems to be the only time I'm out during the day (at least on weekdays) it definitely plays havoc… Continue reading My Winter Skin Saviour: Nordic-C Arctic Berry Cocktail

Unlikely Mum’s Quick Skincare Routine

I'll let you in on a little secret... I was always lazy with skincare, even before Travis made an appearance. I've always been a fan of quick and easy personal care products, and if they can do more than one job, even better! Now that I'm a mum (and a toddler mum at that) I… Continue reading Unlikely Mum’s Quick Skincare Routine

Birchbox Advent Calendar: Week 3

So obviously advent ended over a week ago now, but seeing as it's been that time of year, we've been a bit preoccupied with all the festivities to share the last week of Birchbox goodies. Week 3 of my advent calendar has brought more treats, partly because it's actually 3 and a half weeks. I… Continue reading Birchbox Advent Calendar: Week 3

June Firsts

Who can believe another month has come and gone again? The heat has made May, June and now July roll into one, so it's taken some real thought to remember what actually happened in each month, and what date it was actually a first! I'm blaming this partly on going back to work, so things… Continue reading June Firsts

Living a more conscious life – Lagom inspiration

I'm really into books that are all about creating the best lifestyle for you, and particularly loved the Little Book of Hygge I received as a Christmas present last year. The one book that really spoke to me though, was Lagom - the Swedish art of Balanced Living. Lagom is often referred to as the… Continue reading Living a more conscious life – Lagom inspiration

Book review: The Missing Girl by Jenny Quintana

I don't think I've written a book review since I was at high school, and even then it was reluctantly written as part of my higher coursework. I absolutely used to love reading when I was younger, and loved nothing better than a book that got under your skin or into your heart. However I… Continue reading Book review: The Missing Girl by Jenny Quintana

Returning to Exercise After Having a Baby

One thing I was really craving during pregnancy wasn't food related, oddly. Towards the 8 month Mark, when I'd given up my exercise classes, I would have given anything to be able to do a sit up or a burpee. And I bloody hate burpees. I was craving this and general exercise to the point… Continue reading Returning to Exercise After Having a Baby
