Native Unearthed charcoal deodorant balm review

During lockdown I've taken some time to start using a number of products I'd previously received in Birchboxes, partly down to the guilt of not using them and partly to ensure I'm using what I have before I embark on the laborious journey to the shops for what I might already have in a cupboard.… Continue reading Native Unearthed charcoal deodorant balm review

Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara

One of my makeup must-haves is mascara, due to having been blessed with short, mostly blonde eyelashes. That means I'm always looking for a great new mascara, so I was delighted to be able to try Rimmel's Volume Shake mascara. Clumping is one of the most annoying and disappointing features of a mascara, but thankfully… Continue reading Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara

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

Baby M's firsts, Reviews

Hartbeeps Mother and Baby Classes

So rather than new year, new me, I started 2018 focusing on all the new great things baby M could, should and would hopefully do in his first year of life (see 2018: A Year of Firsts). One of the main things I wanted baby M to experience was play and interaction with other babies,… Continue reading Hartbeeps Mother and Baby Classes
