Feeling Comfortable in My Own Skin

23 Sep

Hi folks,

More than ever, we seem to be bombarded with images of picture perfect people… flawless skin… perfect figure… nothing seems to be out of place. I’ve always been a bit of a self conscious person when it comes to how I look. I’m so confident in who I am as a person… but when it comes to how I look… I’m so critical & self conscious.

After having the boys… I have noticed a massive change in my skin. The problem with a change in your skin also effects your make up! So, not only does your skin look & feel different with a naked face, but it also looks & feels different when you’re wearing your make up. Such a nightmare. Especially when you’re already feeling a little self conscious from just having a baby. And… you also have the added pressure of not having oodles of time either to start a brand new in-depth skincare regime!

So… what changed with my skin after pregnancy.

Under my left eye, I developed a little prominent blood vessel. I know it looks small… but to me it looked like a beacon! I think it happened during pregnancy while throwing up so much. I’ve always had a rosy pink complexion & that’s fine as it’s always something I’ve had so I’ve always bought & wore make up that hid it a little. However, after pregnancy I always felt it looked more patchy. And, my cheek area became super dry in areas & under my eyes which meant that my foundation & powder started to clump, which is not a good look. But, my T Zone area became massively oily. This meant that my foundation was clumping in the dry areas & then smearing off in the oily areas. My pores were becoming visible under my makeup in the oily areas, if that makes sense… almost like the inside of an aero bar.

I just do not have the time to spend hours on my skin & make up with a 3yr old & a 10month old to run around after. But… I still want to feel & look good.

Starting on 22nd August… I began using my new products from ESKI decided to document the results & I’m so glad that I did.

I’ve added dates to the photo’s so you can see how skin has improved.

The areas that I feel have improved; my skin isn’t as greasy, fine lines seem to have improved, no dry patches & I feel like the small blood vessel isn’t as prominent.

So… what is my new skincare regime I hear you ask? Well, firstly I can promise you that my new regime is super simple & hardly takes up any time! I am completely in love with the ESK Hydroxy Cleanser. I use the Hydroxy Cleanser morning & night. I wear make up everyday & I do tend to go for a smokey eye look complete with black liquid eyeliner & black mascara. So I need a cleanser that will be gentle, but will also remove every bit of make up. This cleanser does all of that! You use it just like a face wash. The 100ml bottle should last you around 3 months. I’ve never been a fan of cleansers & toners… I always found cleansers to be too greasy & toners to be too harsh, which would end up making me too pink. The hydroxy cleanser, cleanses while being nice & gentle, & it’s also soap free. It doesn’t make me red & I never feel any skin tightness after using, which I’ve always found that I get when using other face washes.

After cleansing on a morning I then use B Quenched. This product can be used at night or morning. I’ve been using each morning & I can honestly say that this moisturiser is my most favourite skin care product EVER! It is absolutely gorgeous! It’s everything I’ve always wanted in a moisturiser. With having an oily T Zone, I always thought other moisturisers used to sit on top of the greasiness. So I’d avoid putting anything on my T Zone. So I’d only end up moisturising my dry cheek area. This products helps to improve the skins barrier function, reducing hyperpigmentation and acting as an anti-inflammatory agent. I think my redness has massively improved. Also, I never knew that when the skin is super oily, it can be a direct result of the skin being too dehydrated. This product helps the skin to retain moisture, but my oilyness has greatly improved. My skin overall just feels less greasy, less dry & looks less red. My make up has been going on so well. I’ve stopped using a primer under my make up as this moisturiser gives such a lovely even base.

My make up isn’t clumping or sitting in lines. It’s also staying put all day… so that alone tells me that my oily skin has improved.

I’ve been using Ultimate A everynight before bed after using my Hydroxy Cleanser. I just want to say first off – that this product is not recommended while pregnant or breastfeeding due to the content of Vitamin A. This product is an amazing anti-aging product. I absolutely love this. I feel like my fine lines around my eyes have reduced. I’m now 37 & fine lines are my main concern. I think we’re all looking for that wonder cream that will make us look a little younger. I have no problem being almost 40… but I also want to look good too. This product promotes collagen growth, increases skin elasticity and reduces hyperpigmentation effectively and without irritation. It’s a lovely light cream, not too heavy or thick. It makes your skin feel so super soft. Again, like the B Quenched – I feel like this product has helped to reduce the redness. Normally after cleansing & moisturising on an evening, my skin would be so red. But I can honestly say, my skin looks calmer.

My 3 stand out products are: Hydroxy Cleanser, B Quenched, & Ultimate A. I honestly feel like I have new & improved skin, with no extra effort. When we feel good about ourselves, I think we can deal with the pressures & stresses of a busy lifestyle so much easier. Another great feature to these products, is that they give you a full run down on how to use them & when to use them. They really feel like a tailor made skincare regime just for you.

I will be continuing to document my skin progress & will be writing a progress post about it ūüôā

I hope you’ve found this post useful & interesting. I’ve added the links to the products that I’ve been using so you can read further & even treat yourself.

Thank you so much for reading!

Wobble, Wiggle and Grow

9 Sep

Hi folks,

Seth went back to pre-school last week. He was so excited. To be honest… I think he likes the routine of school Monday – Friday. Over the Summer break he has asked a lot for School. It’s so quiet in the house without him now he’s back. But looking at the positives – it gives me some one & one time with Ted.

Ted is 10 month old now… I just cannot believe that he’s going to be a year old next month. That time has flown. I know I always say it – but the time does just fly by. When people said to me that time flies once you have children… I don’t think I really believed them.

Ted has been having so much fun with his new toy from Hape & Baby Einstein. It’s no secret that Hape are one of our most favourite toy brands. We all just adore wooden toys. Ted’s new toy is Balancing Cal. Cal comes in 5 pieces & is a mix of wood & plastic. Some of the pieces make sounds too when you shake them. Fun & musical. The aim of the game is to stack Cal as tall as you can make him, without him falling down. This toy is great for encouraging & developing motor skills.

Each piece has been beautifully crafted & is the perfect size of little hands. Ted has had fun shaking them to make noise, clacking them together & has enjoyed giving them a good old bite lol. Each piece is lovely & smooth with no sharp edges & the materials feel very durable. The colours are stunning too. So vibrant.

Each piece has a different texture to feel too. The balls are perfectly weighted to be able to stack in a wiggly, wobbly way. Ted loves it when they all fall over. It’s really just a lovely little toy that does so much… makes music, rolls, stacks etc…

I know some folk think it’s a little too soon to be talking about it… however… Christmas is only around the corner! Balancing Cal would make a fantastic gift.

I’ve added some links for further reading & info on the product.

I hope you’ve found this post useful!

Thanks as always for reading,

Love & Huggles,

Making Memories

20 May

Hi folks,

I love the month of May. Spring is everywhere & everything looks so beautiful… the weather is on the turn to sunnier times & it’s also mine & the hubsters Birthday month.

We always try to do something nice for our birthdays as they’re only 4 days apart. But when you have little ones in tow… plans have to change & adapt. This year we had the most amazing little break in the Yorkshire Dales in a stunning Georgian Cottage.

So… first of all… let me tell you about this simply beautiful cottage. Green Cottage is an elegant Georgian Cottage set on the green of one of Yorkshire’s most picturesque villages. It’s an ideal base to explore the Dales in any season. And… it’s 100% Family-friendly… that includes doggies too. A dog bed & bowl can be provided if needed. Our Coco is such a little diva though & likes her own little comforts – so we took her fave bed & mini food & water bowl… most dog bowls are big enough for her to bathe in lol.

The space itself:

The house is fully detached and set over three floors.¬†Don’t worry thoughif you have little ones,¬†then baby gates can be provided. Seth is 3 & Ted is 6 month so we very much need baby gates on the stairsso this was fab for us. They were already installed too!

Lower Ground Floor

  • Kitchen diner (featuring an extendable table to seat up to 6 guests and fully equipped with Rangemaster cooker, dishwasher, fridge with freezer shelf and microwave along with plenty of good quality cooking and baking equipment, glasses, crockery etc). Honestly…the kitchen¬†has EVERYTHING you¬†could¬†possibly need. Even¬†down¬†to the¬†colourful¬†plastic kids crockery from IKEA that we all know &¬†love¬†& can’t live without! We ate in both nights…¬†I¬†did ‘snacky food & we had sparkles…¬†obvs

  • Utility room (with washer-dryer, iron and ironing board and a drying space for muddy boots and outdoor gear).¬†There’s¬†a¬†great¬†tray there to stand your¬†dirty shoes in¬†&¬†there’s a radiator right¬†underneath the coat rail too – so if¬†you’ve¬†gotten a¬†little¬†damp –¬†everything¬†will¬†dry¬†off.

  • Bathroom (with spa whirlpool bath, and toasty underfloor heating). The bath is¬†utterly¬†divine! I had visions of having¬†an¬†uninterrupted¬†bubble bath¬†with¬†a glass of¬†sparkles… but of course that¬†lasted¬†all of 5 minutes until¬†Seth¬†came bounding in lol. But that’s¬†Mama Life for¬†you!

Ground Floor

  • Living room (sofas to comfortably seat 5, log burner, digital Smart TV with Freeview, BBC iPlayer etc as well as lots of books, maps and games)¬†we took our amazon fire stick¬†with¬†us &¬†connected it¬†to the¬†WiFi. So we were able to¬†watch¬†Disney Life, Netflix & Prime. Please note that the play pen in the living room is ours & not part of the cottage.

  • Snug / third bedroom (large day bed which can be made up into full size single bed, second TV, desk)

  • Shower room (walk in monsoon shower with extra large enclosure, heated towel rail) There is also a toilet.¬†It’s¬†fab as there is literally a¬†toilet¬†on¬†each¬†floor. Essential for toilet training! Seth¬†is totally¬†dry now, but we’re still only in¬†our first¬†month¬†of toilet¬†training… so a toilet¬†on¬†hand is¬†utterly¬†essential lol.

First floor

  • Master bedroom (king size bed with deep, comfortable mattress, large wardrobe and antique dressing table) oodles of¬†space!¬†Loads¬†of room for a travel cot. A travel¬†cot can¬†be¬†provided¬†too¬†if you don’t¬†want¬†to¬†take one.

  • Twin bedroom (two full size single beds with pocket sprung mattresses, chest of drawers and clothes rail) a waterproof¬†mattress¬†cover can be¬†provided too! Perfect!Please note that the bed guard rail is ours & not part of the cottage.

  • WC with basin (‘Jack and Jill’ style access from both upstairs bedrooms, ideal for families, or can be set up as en-suite for either bedroom)

Outside

  • Enclosed garden to rear and side, paved and gravel with outside seating, and a charcoal BBQ
  • Bike store (lockable for up to 5 bikes, can also be used as a pram store)
  • Direct access to the village green – a large expanse of grass free for all to stroll, sit or play
  • Play area visible from back gate – swings, slide, football posts etc. We spent quite a lot of time in the little play area. Seth loves a park. There’s also plenty wide open space to run around or to picnic. But, if you take your fur babies… please ensure you scoop that poop! There’s nothing worse than dog poop making the place dirty!

As you can see from above & from my photos… everything is catered for.

The bedding was so comfy!!! Egyptian cotton bed linen on all beds, 13.5 tog thick duvets (hypoallergenic and feather / down) and plenty of soft and fluffy Egyptian cotton towels. As you can see… Ted had to try out the king size bed lol.

There’s a welcome pack with all the basics for your first couple of days (loo rolls, hand soap, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, bin bags, tea towels and kitchen cleaning supplies) as well as tea, coffee, milk, bread and a few local treats. This was soooo nice!!! It just means that you don’t have to pack a lot of shopping. And it also means that it’s all ready for you to get the kettle straight on when you arrive… coz let’s face it… we all need that first brew when we arrive somewhere! Especially when you’ve had to sing Baby Shark & Old McDonald Farm all the way there lol.

 

Also… when we arrived there was a lovely big box of toys left out for Seth to explore, as well as plenty children’s books. There were even a few laid out on his bed for him. That was such a lovely touch & Seth was super excited!

So as well as a travel cot, baby gates & toys… the owners can provide a highchair – which Ted thought was VERY comfy & there is also a baby monitor. Oh & I did mention the plastic IKEA crockery, but there’s also a MAM Baby Cup too. Just so many little things that have been added to make your break so much easier! This cottage is really like a home from home.

For our furbabies, there is a lovely fluffy blanket provided & the use of a hose pipe outside to wash down those dirty paws.

 

Okay… so you’ve heard all about the gorgeous cottage… but what did we do while we were there? We investigated Settle. What a stunning little town. Seth particularly enjoyed The House That Jack Built. He got some lovely new Melissa & Doug toys. There are so many gorgeous shops, tea rooms & places to eat, to investigate. There’s also the Watershed Mill. It is absolutely stunning… the scenery is simply breathtaking. We popped there for a little bite to eat over lunch time.

We spent a lot of time playing on the green outside of the cottage & in the little park. We were only there for 2 nights… next time we’ll be booking for a week.

The cottage has a lovely organised folder of leaflets & places to visit etc… so helpful for when you’re planning days out.

This beautiful cottage is simply worth every penny. If you book before August & quote: “IxxyPoco” you will be given an exclusive discount. You can book a year in advance. So use that code before it runs out. Simply head to Green Cottage on AirBnB & send a message to the owners quoting my blog.

Thanks as always for reading & I hope you’ve been inspired to book yourself a lovely break away ‚̧ԳŹ

Love & Huggles,

Hayley xxx

Candles And Giveaways

3 Sep

Hi folks,

Over the last week I have been filling my home with some lovely fragrances from the Classic Candle Company.

Whilst I was opening the box they arrived in, I could smell them. The scents are stunning… & that’s even before anything has been lit!

So… What did I receive?

  • 6 Mini Lights in fragrances: Berry Burst, Rose Petals, London, Relax, Classic Cotten & Colourful. Each will last 10-12hrs
  • Reed Diffuser in Orange & Anise. Lasts up to 12wks
  • Medium Jar in Belgian Waffle. Burns for 50-70hrs
  • Wax Melt Bar in Tiare Flower. Lasts for 48-60hrs

First of all… the one thing that stands out to me is the clean, crisp look of the products. With the wax being white & having a transparent casing, it just gives it an elegant feel & look. Any of these products would blend into any home decor. With other fragranced candle brands they may be coloured, which is lovely, but sometimes it deters you from certain fragrances if it means it won’t match your colour scheme.

With this lovely, clean white look… I can’t help but think of Wedding centre pieces.

Imagine a beautifully dressed room with these stunning candles all lit in the centre of the tables. It would look so elegant & it’d smell divine. Or, if not a wedding – a Christmas table. I think I’ll be getting one of the festive fragrances for the centre of my table on Christmas Day. Simple but stunning. This Belgian Waffle fragrance is beautiful. But then I do love sweet, foodie kind of fragrances. I lit this in my dining room & I could smell it all over the house. I have a 4 bedroom home too, so the fragrance had plenty space to spread out & try to fill. I can also say that there was no black smoke… with some cheaper candles I have found you can get a little black smoke. This was a nice clean burn. Also, with this candle almost being like a pillar candle, it doesn’t take long for the wax to pool & spread, giving an even burn – no tunnelling at all.

The mini lights are perfect for a little burst of fragrance. In no time at all after lighting, you’ve got an even pool of wax across the top scenting your room.

I’ve been lighting these ones on an evening once my little boy has gone to bed. I think my favourites have been Classic Cotten & Berry Burst. They’re all lovely… But I do love a fruity fragrance & you can’t beat that clean laundry scent.

These beautiful little candles would make amazing Wedding favours. Or Baby Shower favours;¬†Baby Powder would be the perfect fragrance. With Christmas just around the corner too, these little mini lights would make a gorgeous little gift for your christmas dinner guests, or if you’re making your own crackers – they’d make a lovely little surprise.

I do love a wax melt, I’ve been melting the Tiare Flower wax melt bar in our kitchen.

It’s great that you can split the bar into 6 cubes & burn 1 at a time. This fragrance has been great for banishing foodie cooking smells.

If you’re not a big fan of candles, then maybe the Reed Diffusers would be perfect for you.

This fragrance is so stunning. Admittedly, this wouldn’t be a fragrance that I would choose, but it’s so fresh smelling. I opened this & popped on the windowsill in our office. When my husband came in from work a few hours later, he said he could smell it as soon as he walked into the porch. Our office is at the other end of the house. I think he got excited thinking I’d been baking some fancy cakes lol.

With the orange scent in this, it’s almost got a festive feel to it. It really is lovely & strong enough to fill the whole of my home. With so many fragrances to choose from, you could find the perfect fragrance to suit any room. One of the fresh classic fragrances would be stunning in the bathroom.

If you head over to their website, you can view their full range of fragrances & styles. They’ve actually just launched a new 2 wick candle too! Now here’s the exciting part… you can WIN a 2 Wick Large Candle worth ¬£24.50 in the fragrance of your choice, delivered to your door for FREE!!! Enter HERE. Competition will close Mon 24th September 2018. UK Only.

If you can’t wait until then to get your hands on some beautiful candles then use code: ixxypoco at checkout to get 20% off!!! But be quick, as this discount will only be valid for 7 days!

Thanks so much for reading & don’t forget to enter this fab competition!

Stunning Storage Solutions

13 May

Hi folks,

A few weeks ago Seth received the most beautiful custom handmade toy box from The Traditional Toy Box Company

As you can see from the photo above – these toy boxes are so beautifully made. The quality is stunning. They’re also fully customisable which is great for finding that perfect toy box to suit any room & any colour scheme.

As most of you will know, Seth has not long just turned 2 years old. It’s always a bit of a worry with toddlers that they can be a tad too ‘heavy handed’. Before our beautiful toy box arrived I did worry in case it wouldn’t be sturdy enough to withstand Seth on a daily basis lol. Well I can honestly say that I needn’t have worried. The boxes are so solid – they actually weigh quite a lot. Which is great as it shows just how high a quality the whole thing is. The fittings & hinges are also really strong & of good quality – they seem really durable. Which is fantastic since Seth is in & out of the box every other minute lol.

As you can see from the above pics – the toy box does hold a LOT of toys. It’s great for literally throwing toys in at the end of the day, then once that lids down – the room is nice & tidy again.

But it’s also fun to dig around in the toy box & to drag everything out on to the floor too apparently lol.

The top of the box is padded & covered in lovely fabric – which is also customisable. With it being strong & then padded – it makes a lovely little seat. In fact… Seth’s been having fun making little displays on top of it haha.

This stunning Traditional Toy Box would make such an amazing addition to any nursery, bedroom, play room or lounge. I don’t think the photos convey just how beautiful it is. Everyone who has seen it in the flesh has said just how gorgeous it is.

This would make a stunning baby shower gift… you could fill it with so many goodies. Perfect for that collection at work when no one knows what to buy. Or, why not start planning for Christmas in advance. Any child would be delighted with such a beautiful gift. This toy box is big enough to be shared too, so if you have more than one child… this could be a lovely communal toy box. When our little bundle of joy arrives in October, I’m sure him or her will love our communal toy box.

You can also purchase memory boxes too. Perfect for keeping all of those treasured keepsakes safe. Weddings, Births, Christenings etc… What a fantastic thoughtful gift.

Right now, The Traditional Toy Box Company are offering a massive 35% discount! But be quick as this is for a limited time only. Use code: EXCLUSIVE50OFF

If by the time you’re reading this, the fabulous 35% offer has ended… fear not! Simply add coupon code: ixxypoco10 for 10% off.

There is also the opportunity to pay using an interest free payment plan along with a small deposit. Simply head on over to their website for more info.

To keep up to date with news, new designs & offers, you can follow The Traditional Toy Box Company on Facebook & Instagram.

Thank you so much as always for reading & I hope you’ve enjoyed the review!

My Baby Wishlist

14 Mar

Hi folks,

By now you all know that we’re expecting our second bundle joy in October. I’m just so super excited it’s unreal!

Being the organised soul that I am, I’ve already started my list of essential items. You can expect lots of reviews over the coming months!

MAM UK

When Seth was born I struggled with breast feeding. The C-Section delayed my milk supply & Seth lost 14% of his body weight in the first week. I think the shock hit me hard & I instantly felt guilty like I’d failed him. For us, going over to formula was the right thing to do. Seth took to the transition of bottles so well. I have MAM UK anti-colic bottles to thank for that. So, I shall be using the same bottles for baby number 2.

  1. MAM Electric Steriliser & Bottle Warmer
  2. Easy Start Anti-Colic Bottle Starter Set
  3. NewBorn Soothers
  4. Perfect Night Soother
  5. Soft Cleaning Brush

I didn’t have a bottle warmer for Seth. I was old school & warmed bottles in boiled water. This would be so much easier!!! Night feeds will be so much easier with the aid of the bottle warmer.

The bottle starter set is just such good value for money! The set includes:

Pack Contents:

4 x Easy Start Anti-Colic Bottles 160ml with Slow Flow teats

4 x Easy Start Anti-Colic Bottle Bodies 260ml

1 x Start Soother

1 x Extra Soft Bottle Spout

1 x Hold my Bottle Handles

4 x Sealing discs

MAM UK bottles are our MUST HAVE bottle brand. The fact they come completely apart makes cleaning so much easier & simple.

Sanggol Pregnancy Pillow

Getting comfy in bed when you’re pregnant can be a bit of a nightmare. I have damage to my lower back too & I’ve had surgeries in the past, so I tend to suffer some pain anyway, then with the added strain of pregnancy… things can get a tad uncomfy at times. So what could be better than a full body pillow to give you some much needed support. It’s literally like sleeping in a big hug!

Joie

This car seat is so beautiful. Not only is it beautiful though – it’s ‘super safe’. It has an exclusive first ever side impact certification. It also has a lie flat feature too for when you’re out & about… carry cot & car seat all in one. This car seat is also compatible with the Joie pushchair range making it the perfect partner to create a Travel System. And… it comes complete with isofix base!

Seth currently has the Everystage FX Car Seat & it’s superb! We’re big Joie fans in our household. You always know you’re going to get good quality.

Totally in love with this buggy. It’s literally perfect… forward faces… rear faces… suitable from birth… when folded can be transported in trolley mode… single step shoe saver brake… large all terrain tyres… and it looks pretty too! This buggy sounds pretty perfect to me!

British Baby Box

The Adorable Baby Box is a stunning little start up kit. Perfect for safe sleeps. It comes fully assembled with beautiful British made 100% organic cotton which is kind & delicate for babies skin. The Adorable Baby Box includes:

  • British Baby Box with lid/changing mat facility
  • Fitted mattress with attached waterproof mattress cover
  • 100% Organic Cotton Fitted Sheet

We’re off on holiday in December & this would make the most perfect travel cot! Literally perfect!

So… there you have it… that’s My Baby Wishlist… so far anyway!

Thanks as always for reading!

Love & Huggles,

If you want to impress that special someone – you need to get yourself to your nearest store or get buying online… their gorgeous pretties are sure to impress!

So… what did I receive?

Pear & Pink Magnolia Body Soufflé

This is utterly divine!!! Scented body lotions can make me quite nervous as I have sensitive skin on my arms & legs. This is so delicate. It’s stunning. The texture is so super lightweight. If you’re after a beautiful hydrating body lotion that isn’t too heavy or ‘cloggy’… then this is for you! The scent is lovely & soft with a hint fruity freshness. Love love love this lotion. It comes packaged in a lovely box too, which gives it that luxury feel. It’s a fairly big tub, so it should last a good while. Definitely worth every single penny.

Citron & Coriander Body Wash 

Perfect for morning showers as the beautiful zestiness gives you that wide awake feeling. It’s so fresh & zingy… this makes me think of long summery days. This body wash leaves you fruity fresh & soft… it’s definitely not drying like some body washes can be. The whole of this range is stunning – so you could absolutely put a little ‘Zingy Hamper’ together for that special someone. There’s even some jars of Lemon Curd¬†& Beautiful Biscuits.¬†Imagine the fabulous gift you could throw together!

Citron & Coriander Soap

Oh I just love a good old traditional bar of soap – I really do. This soap has left my bathroom smelling super fresh. You’d think I had a reed diffuser in there. This is a lovely gentle soap that won’t irritate those hardworking hands. It’ll leave your hands soft & feeling invigorated.

Use Instagram? If you do then why not enter the Crabtree & Evelyn #LoveGoalscompetition.
