Chanel Allure EDT

I received Chanel Allure Eau De Toilette Spray as a gift from my husband and it is the only Chanel scent in my collection. It comes in a very simple spray bottle with a silver & gold cap and it is described as a definition of elegance.

Frugi kidswear

I mentioned Frugi and their lovely breastfeeding cardigan here and I am sooo impressed with the quality. I've had it for a while now, it has been washed many times and it still looks brand new. Amazing! Mia and Zachary were kindly sent some beautiful Frugi pieces too and here they are, modelling them for the blog :) haha. It was sooo hard to get any good pictures of them together by the way. They are both super active and don't want to sit still.

New on my bookshelf/ possible gift ideas.

I wish I had more time to read books. I used to be such a bookworm! I very rarely read 'proper books' these days, maybe a couple per year. That's why I love books I can quickly flick through when I am having a cuppa, 'coffee table books' etc. I have lots of them in my collection, but today I want to share with you some recent additions.

Mia's 4 month update and general chit-chat

Oh wow! Mia is officially 4 months old! I just want to press pause and enjoy those precious moments: breastfeeding and morning cuddles, cute smiles and the beautiful baby smell. It's magical. It is also very challenging and we experienced Mia's first illness last week, but more about it later. Grab a cuppa and have a little read.

Products you can now buy at Boots

Boots occasionally send me their 'beauty boxes' full of products available in their stores and I absolutely love trying everything they choose. I often get asked if the boxes are available to buy, but just to clarify - these are just put together for review purposes to showcase a range of items.  They are great though, as I can now share my opinion on the products with my readers. The selection this time is quite varied - from teeth whitening strips, to hair supplements, skincare and nails.

bareMinerals Blemish Remedy Foundation

I really like mineral powder foundations and the bareMinerals Blemish Remedy Foundation* (£23.40) is my new favourite. I have been using it for a while now and I can definitely recommend it, especially if you have blemish prone skin.

Bespoke Christmas Beauty Hamper with Boots

When it comes to Christmas presents, DIY beauty hampers are my speciality. I just love putting together a bespoke selection of products for the recipient to match their taste. Yes, you can buy ready hampers and gift sets, but it is so much more special when you make it yourself.
