Something for the Bank Holiday Weekend…

Woo hoo! A long weekend is almost upon us. Sunshine should make an appearance so here’s to barbecues, impromptu get-togethers and fun all round.  Here are some things we have spotted this week which you may be interested in if you have a moment to yourself to have a gander.

As a New Baby gift, we love these changing mats with faux leather (meaning it’s totally wipeable!) and stylish fabric covers…this black and white leopard print is fabulous and there have been hints of a gold leopard print fabric on the Instagram feed (calm down Georgie!). Available here.

Grace & Valour have some unique, pretty jewellery pieces which are well priced and would be perfect gifts. The Oak leaf necklace stood out to Georgie as she has two Oak trees in her garden which tower over the surrounding area evoking a real sense of permanency and togetherness as they stand side by side. Available here.

This little book of loveliness from Kikki K means anyone can make pretty things. With Katie and Georgie totally reliant on Kikki K’s planners, this just adds to the world of inspired organisation. Available here.

We have featured Little Cloud in the past and to add to their designs, the “I Love Paris” collection in the AW16 range has caught our eye for its fun and whimsical pieces. Available here.

mums fashion | AW16 trainers to add to your wardrobe

We love a trainer, as we know most mums do. Nothing much better (other than wellies!) for the school run in our opinion. There were some great designs out last year, but we have no doubt that this new season won’t fail to present us with even more.

Here are just a few AW16 trainers that we have come across so far and simply had to share them with you. We picked a metallic, a spot of leopard print and a simple pair…

From the new Hush AW16 collection, these Majestic Star trainers are £156

From Jigsaw, we love this update to standard lace trainers. The Olivia Cross Strap trainers are £98

review | Green People Beauty Boost Skin restore

Green People Beauty Boost Skin Restore

Green People are launching a new product called Beauty Boost Skin Restore which has been described as having the benefits of a nourishing face mask without the hassle of having to apply it, wait and then wash it off. You can use it twice weekly or whenever required. This sounds ideal for mums on the go! From past experience we have been impressed with Green People’s products as well as their kids’ brand, Organic Babies so this has a lot to live up to.

Green People lists the ingredients benefits in the Beauty Boost Skin Restore and they promise a lot…but do they deliver? Carry on reading to find out.

Certified organic beauty cream, combining all the magic of a facial in one luxury treatment

  • Wakame, an antioxidant rich seaweed, stimulates collagen formation to firm your skin

  • Everlasting Flower is rich in flavonoids to fight skin damaging free-radicals

  • Green Marine Macro Algae delivers intense hydration to deeper skin tissues

  • Naturally uplifting aroma from organic Ylang Ylang, Mandarin & Ho Wood essential oils

  • Use as a twice weekly treatment or whenever your skin needs a boost

  • Made with 91.7% certified organic ingredients

Green People Beauty Boost Skin Restore

Georgie’s skin has been playing up recently with extremely flaky skin and small spots which occurred after an allergic reaction to a beauty product. She has tried various creams and lotions to no avail so when we were offered to test the Beauty Restore, Georgie jumped at the chance. When the Beauty Boost Skin restore is applied feels soft and almost velvet-like. It sinks quickly into the skin leaving it feeling smooth, hydrated but not ay all greasy. Hand on heart, this cream has been a miracle although Georgie has used it everyday for two weeks rather than twice a week to get her skin back on track. It helped rebalance Georgie’s skin and the flakiness has gone except for a small bit on the nose – why do noses, the most prominent part on a face always want to have flaky bits?? She is now using it every few days and it has fitted into her skincare regime easily. It works brilliantly after exfoliating and feels like it is doing good.

If you would like to try this little pot of wonder then Green People are offering readers 10% off with this link before it launches. The offer is available until 31st March. For the price, we feel it truly delivers.
