New Baby Congratulations!

| January 1, 2012

New Baby Congratulations!

There’s nothing more precious than seeing your family or friend’s baby for the first time and sharing the love and joy with the proud new family.

My family and friends are scattered across the UK and all corners of the globe, so I know all too well that sometimes it’s just not possible to be there when you really want to be.

I always send a bright and colourful bouquet of flowers to say ‘Congratulations’. Interflora provide beautiful bouquets of flowers to celebrate the new arrival and deliver in the UK and internationally.

There’s also a wonderful selection of Baby and Mummy gifts, as well as hampers to add to a bouquet, or as an alternative gift for the new family.

Super Quick Yummy Mummy Beauty

| December 14, 2011

With my new baby cradled in my arms and pressed closely against my bosom, the last thing I wanted to do was to transfer chemical-laden creams, potions and lotions onto her delicate skin.

I decided I had to go completely chemical-free and discover the joys of organic, natural skin care. I feel ethereal for making a choice that benefits myself, my baby and the environment. Green People skin care products are not tested on animals. Can it get any better than this?

Green People make everything you could wish for, at a fraction of the cost of many other skincare brands.

I highly recommend Green People skin care products which I use as part of my daily beauty regime.

No Stretch Marks with Trilogy Rosehip Oil

| December 13, 2011

Here are some excellent natural and organic skin care and beauty products I discovered when pregnant. I simply can’t live without these, even now as a Mummy!

If you want some real pampering when pregnant using natural and organic skin care products, so as not to absorb any dangerous chemicals through the layers of your skin, try the brilliant range of Trilogy Skincare products.

Trilogy is a New Zealand company who use organic Rosehip Oil, renowned for it’s restorative and anti-ageing properties. Trilogy do not test on animals.

As an added bonus, I was lucky enough to get through my pregnancy without one single stretch mark to show for the 9 months (+2 weeks!) of my gradually blooming tummy, thanks to Trilogy Rosehip Oil.

I put my luck down to the regular use of Trilogy products, gently rubbing Trilogy 100% Natural Certified Organic Rosehip Oil over my expanding belly, which helped to prevent stretch marks and was a wonderful way to bond with my growing baby as I talked to her at the same time (she thought it was marvelous having a gentle daily massage and rewarded me with plenty of little kicks and punches)!

I like to use the Everything Balm as a body moisturiser, it smells divine! 

I still use Trilogy 100% Natural Certified Organic Rosehip Oil as a facial oil during winter to keep my skin moisturised and the Trilogy Everything Balm is multi-purpose so worth carrying around in your pram bag! 

I’m so glad I used Trilogy products when I was pregnant, I couldn’t have done without them – and they’re such great value.
