Clevamama Clevafeed

Baby S enjoying her banana.

Baby S is now 5 months old and has become interested in foods, so I have been looking for safe ways to help her discover new tastes other than me feeding her with a spoon, I found a baby site selling Clevamama products and after a browse I found the Clevafeed.. Which has been so useful! - The BPA Free ClevaFeed is the safest and most hygienic way to introduce your child to solids including fruit and vegetables without the risk of choking.  Easy to use – simply open the handle and place food in the teat. Suitable from 6+ months the ClevaFeed is also a great when your baby is teething. It includes a travel cover for when you’re out and about. Unlike similar products on the market, this product doesn't use a net bag. instead the ClevaFeed uses a silicon mesh teat, which is far more hygenic and softer on gums. The silicone teat is easy to clean, safe and convenient. As the Clevafeed is quite bulky, it's very easy for her little hands to keep hold of and navigate to her mouth, Baby S ate her first banana and she couldn't eat it quick enough!.. I've had it just over a week and she's had banana, mango and cucumber so far.

Baby S has also been teething for the last month or so and other than calpol, teething powder, gels and teething rings she's been getting upset with the aching that comes with it.. So I decided to fill it with crushed iced and gave it to her.. It did the job amazingly and she crunched and munched until it had all gone and it definitely eased the discomfort.

The Cleva Feed is not a pacifier and should be used under adult supervision only.  Never leave your child unattended while using this product.  Check regularly and discard when worn or damaged.
I bought mine for £5.99 and it came with a spare teat.

Stila Kitten All Over Shimmer Duo

Packaged in a convenient compact with mirror, this powder can be used as an eye shadow, highlighter, cheek colour and décolleté.

I absolutely love the Kitten eyeshadow and have been eyeing this up for over 12 months, but always talked myself out of it, but last week when Feel unique did an offer of spend £30 and get £10 off.. So in my mind it only cost me £5 :) I have not been disappointed with it, I've used it as an eyeshadow and a highlighter and it looks so pretty as both. It provides just enough shimmer without glitter so can be used day or night.

Hide even your most scandalous flaws. Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer* gives you buildable, even coverage with a luminous, demi-matte finish. Ultra lightweight, this high-tech formula melds like a second skin to give you full coverage in an instant. For complete coverage, just keep building; no matter how much you apply, Naked Skin Concealer always blends beautifully and never settles into fine lines. 

Practical and travel-friendly, this formula comes in a gorgeous bottle that’s like a smaller version of our Naked Skin Liquid Makeup component. The modern flocked applicator lays down just the right amount of product, and it’s soft enough to use on the delicate skin under the eyes.

I got shade Neutral fair in this concealer which is perfect for both brightening my under eyes and also to cover the odd blemish that pops up.. It gives great coverage. It is just like the foundation, only with a greater pigmentation and thickness, which is perfect. The applicator is perfect as well. It hasn't settled in my fine lines or gone cakey on my blemishes, as with the foundation it is available in many shades for you to find your perfect match!

Review - Rose & co. Apothecary

Rose & Co. was created by Patricia and Caroline Rose when they bought an old druggists shop in Yorkshire. With a love of all things vintage, beautiful and romantic, they restored the shop to its former Victorian splendour and a quirky but charming beauty apothecary was born.You are immediately transported into another era, in which innocence, romance and decadence are never in short supply. I cannot describe how gorgeous these smell! They smell like an expensive perfume and is such a beautiful, addictive scent! 
Rose petal salve - Their celebrated salve is packaged in a beautiful pink ointment tin and remains our best-selling product. A fabulous lip salve and also helpful for dry patches and rough skin, there seems to be no end to the uses of this magical little balm. Smells beautiful and lives in my handbag.. It's a great little product with lot's of different uses! 

Rose & Co No 84 Hand Wash- a gentle, delightful hand wash that will leave hands clean and fragranced with the signature scent of No.84. An amazingly scented modern rose composition with elements of tea, violet, jasmine & iris enhanced with powdery cedar, amber and elegant musks. This smells beautiful! 

Rose & Co No 84 Hand & Body Lotion - a luxurious, rich lotion to moisturise hands and body with the wonderful scent of N0.84. Scented of modern rose with elements of tea, violet, jasmine & iris enhanced with powdery cedar, amber and elegant musks. Leaves my skin moistured and smelling delicious!

 Rose & Co No 84 Bath Melts - a trio of hand-made bath melts to gently dissolve in the bath and moisturise the skin with rich shea and cocoa butters and the wonderful scent of No.84. I grabbed a quick 30 minutes to enjoy a soak in the bath and loved the way my skin felt after my bath, these made my skin feel hydrated, soft & smooth, it also smelt good enough to eat! Also the look super pretty on the side of my bath..

George at ASDA Babywear #WBabyWT

Baby S has been a model for the past week wearing Baby wear from George at Asda I was contacted and asked if I'd like £45 worth of clothes* to put together some gorgeous little outfits...I accepted as I love the range from George as it is affordable but good quality.

Here are the outfits I picked out..

Outfit one - A cute "I'm the Boss" T-shirt in turquiose, pink leggings and as it was a little chilly I added the grey hoodie with ears! So cute :)


Outfit two - a beautiful Minnie mouse outfit of T-shirt and spotty denim leggings with a pair of denim booties to finish..

Outfit three - A gorgeous blue floral cardigan with a pair of dusky pink leggings that have a cute frills on the back.

Outfit four - A pretty little denim pinafore with a pink floral T-shirt, I also added the denim booties.

Outfit five - A very cute little minnie mouse outfit with a pink applique t-shirt and floral pants.

Each outfit came in under £10 which I think is amazing for the quality of the clothes and as our little ones grow so fast, keeping their wardrobes stocked can be expensive.

Have you joined in the #WBABYWT showing off your little ones in there outfits?

Mini review - Lorac Pocket Pro Palette

When I went to Florida in May this was on my shopping list.. A perfect little palette to give you an easy day to night look.. A great size to pop into your bag or make up bag when travelling.. All the shadows are creamy, pigmented and apply like a dream..I picked it up from Ulta, I really wished Lorac would come to the UK, they used to be sold at Sephora - who now ship to the UK but they stopped selling the brand late last year?!.... In this palette you get three shades Nude, Pewter and Expresso which can all be worn together or indivdually to give you several different looks for a great price of $15 - I'm in love!

What's your go to travel palette?

My Top Five Highlighters

I love using a highlighter, especially for a night out or when I want to look a little more put together. By using a highlighter you really can make an impact by showing off & 'highlighting' your bone structure in a super flattering way. Highlighters are a very simple, quick way to give your face that ethereal, youthful glow. Especially in the winter, but also in the summer (with a light hand) for a beautiful dewy finish, Anyone can add a bit more life and radiance into their make up routine with a little highlighter, they come in cream, liquid & powder form, I usually opt for the latter as I prefer the results a powder gives me. 

1.Accessorize Baked Bronzer - Golden Sands. - A luminous peachy champagne shade with hints of bronze veining transfers onto the skin as a gorgeous pale champagne-gold, very soft and luminescent. What's best about the product is that there's no noticeable glitter just perfect shimmer which highlights the skin beautifully. 

2.theBalm - Marylou Manizer. - a seemingly innocent honey-hued luminizer that catches everybody’s eye. This highlighter, shadow and shimmer diffuses light so your skin looks softer and younger while adding a subtle glow. A stunning champagne sheen providing a beautifully natural glow.

3.Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector pressed - Opal. - A sequel to the cult favorite liquid Shimmering Skin Perfector, this creamy powder luminizer is like crushed gemstones in a compact. A gorgeous champagne shimmer, feels like butter, long lasting and natural looking.

4.No7 Vital Enlightening Highlighter - A flash of radiance with a super-soft, almost velvety powder gives a luminous, natural wash of colour. The peach undertones add warmth while the pink shimmer gives a youthful glow.

5.Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder. - A gorgeous, elegant shimmer powder for an angelic glow. Pearl powder provides ultra-light shimmer without looking glittery, and the soft, golden-apricot hue adds a whisper of colour. 

Highlighting and contouring your face makes a massive difference to a face you can change the whole shape, It can create perfect looking bone structure and hide or decrease other features - I wrote an easy Contour/Highlighter post HERE .
