Review | Peripop Foxey

One of the less thrilling aspects of parenthood is the amount of stuff you have to take with you on the move. 

Blankets, changing bags, toys, play mats and more… a lot of the time, leaving the house feels nearly impossible.

So any solution that can combine several functions, while being colourful, fun and easily portable is a clear winner.

The Foxey is a genius blanket/playmat/cushion/toy storage/cuddly friend invention from Peripop.

Bright, vibrant and cute, the Foxey certainly had Theo at hello. It caught his eye immediately and has been his constant companion ever since arriving.

Tying the knot is a huge deal. It’s supposed to be for life, so of course, it’s a big commitment to make.

It means different things to different people too. Some people look at it as a ceremony to celebrate their commitment to their partner. Others do it in the name of their religion.

Maybelline Review | Brow Satin + Master Ink + Creamy Mattes

What's your favourite brand of drugstore makeup? 

There are so many gems out there at the moment it's kind of hard to choose. But one brand I love and always seem to come back to is Maybelline. 

They have a knack for innovation and launching new products that just seem to tap into the mood of the moment, and it's all great value.

I found myself doing a mini Maybelline haul the other day and picked up some of their newest products. 

Here's what I thought of them and why you might need them in your life...

My Amazing Tips to Help You Shop Till You Drop

I’m going to level with you; I love to shop. It’s one of my favourite things to do, and I think it is for most women. 

I find that a nice bit of retail therapy can help perk my mood, and reward me at the end of a difficult week. As someone who considers themselves to be a seasoned shopper, I’ve picked up some hints over the years.

The main problem with going shopping is that it can be expensive. Women’s fashion seems to be getting more pricey with every passing year.

So, can we still enjoy the shopping experience without spending an arm and a leg? The answer is, of course, yes! And I’m going to share some tips that will help you to achieve this.

Six Stylish Essential Shoes for Autumn

The leaves are falling, the skies are misty. Halloween and pumpkin spice lattes have come and gone. Bare feet and toes roaming free in flip flops and sandals are but a distant memory. But don't despair, because autumn brings with it lots of opportunity to parade around in badass footwear. I say bring on the boots, tackle those trainers and go wild for wedges.

I absolutely love autumn dressing, and get a little thrill packing away my summer shoes for some more cold weather friendly options.  So here are my essential, must-have shoes to get the wardrobe ready for autumn.

Birchbox Review | November 2015

I didn't think I'd be writing a Birchbox review this month, because I actually cancelled my subscription at the beginning of November,  but clearly I didn't do it in time because this showed up on my doorstep the other day!

Part of me still enjoys getting a little box of goodies every month, but all too often the majority of items go unused. I stash them away to take with me on holiday, but there’s only so much I need at one time!

And I've very rarely found items that have made me want to buy a full size and include them in my regular routine. But would this box change my mind?

Messy Me | The Changing Clutch Bag

One of the most challenging things about being on the move with a baby, as any mummy will testify, is the amount of stuff you end up carting around with you. 

The list seems never ending, and leaving the house in the morning can seem like a military operation. Then you realise that you don't use half the stuff you brought out with you anyway!

Being a confirmed collector of handbags, it's also a sad fact of motherhood that I never get to use them any more as everything gets chucked into Theo's changing bag.


Home style | Proud & Co Silhouette

Lately I've been all about the home accessories. Now I'm home with the baby a lot more, my nesting instinct has majorly kicked in and I am loving cooking, baking and making our home a beautiful place for my little family. 

So I jumped at the chance to test this gorgeous Silhouette Oven Glove by Proud & Co.

You wouldn't think 'stylish' and 'oven glove' belonged in the same sentence as they seem to be a home accessory that's in constant use but gets a bit neglected from a design point of view. 

But now you can have your home baked cake and eat it, because Proud & Co have married great functionality with a gorgeous design.
