Pregnancy

As you know pregancy is a period of life when your body changes a lot and its demands too. The first Trimester is a very exiting but also very exhausting with all the hormonal changes, nauseas, morning sickness… So A new Category, where I will try to share some tips to help you cop with all these little things and share with you some good deals. The category is Pregnancy Tips, will add little by little. The last trimester is the most demanding and you are exploring new sensations {baby know kicking and moving around} and also new pregnancy related “issues”: insomnia, heartburn , ligament pains and a bit more… The most impressive thing and most difficult to deal with –for me– is The hunger! Yes, during pregnancy, and obviously the last trimester, I do transform and change myself to a big and enormous stomac with legs, only looking for food and starving almost all the time…not a funny feeling and it is quite hard to fight it as you really are HUNGRY. So to …

REVIEW: NOT impressed by Clean Green Nappy Machine and RNW Taster Set

Hello! Tuesday Today and Real Nappy Week Day #2 As promised, I will try to review a shop or nappy a day during this RNW. And today, will talk about The Clean Green Nappy Machine. I have an emotional attachment to this shop. My first order was placed in 2011, pregnant for the first time and first nappy experience. It was a consequent order: a full set of 15 Tots Bots Bamboozle size 1 and 3 wraps, some fleece liners for a total of £153.07, exactly. I do remember being a bit disappointed when I received my order because the order contained no gifts. I am a very fan of gifts even if they are small. I do feel that a good shop/customer service do add small bits {samples} when orders reach a certain amount even if they run a loyalty scheme. Because purely logical, the Loyalty scheme will not push me to come back when satisfaction will. So because it has not worked for us , I did not “come back”. Then I got …

Babipur Review: A trustworthy and Fantastic Online shop!

Well, good morning! Today, I would like to share MY favourite online shop for Baby things: from reusable nappies to organic clothes! I have nominated BABIPUR!!! By far, the fastest and the most reliable shop in UK. My first order has been made in 2014 while pregnant of daughter number 2. It was not my first nappy shopping experience and I do regret not to have discovered this shop first! How did I find them or how did they find me? At that period of my pregnancy, I was grabbing all the informations about real nappies before buying anything so I enrolled myself in many Facebook groups and this is the Bumgenius one that showed me the way 🙂 And since then, Babipur is my GO FOR shop with no hesitation. Look at my addiction: I do shop in other online retailers to buy the nappies they do not stock. Why do we #loveBabiPur? ~ the lowest price ~the loyality discount of 10% ~ a wonderful and very lovely customer service ~I do call them the …

Anti-redness Skincare Routine of the moment: very dry and sensitive Skin

  Hi Lovely’s! Hope you are all fine this morning.  Next week I will be chatting a lot about Real nappies simply because I use and love them and It will be Real Nappy Week 2016. So, I thought that I will post today my skincare routine and some other natural beauty remedies to punctuate the week. Because yes I am a FULL-TIME mum but I am also a WOMAN. And life is all about balance, and taking care of yourself is as important to take care of others. Pregnancy is a really enjoyable period of life but sometimes brings some skin issues like brown patches and other skin condition. As far as I am concerned I always suffered with very dry, extremely sensitive skin subject to redness. And as far as I remember it started in my early twenties {Hmmmm, I am not 20 anymore…} I tried a lot of branded skincare creams to try to ease this itchiness and redness, one of which is Avene® anti-Redness/Redness Relief Range. It is the one I …

10 Reasons why using Real nappies is NOT posh!

Hi everyone! Few days ago, I was on facebook and in my feeds see someone talking about real nappies. This lovely blogger was in shock after reading in a forum a mum telling that “using cloth nappies is posh!” Here is her article: “Are cloth nappies posh now?” Waw what a shock! In fact not so chocking to be honest. What “Posh”means for me? It means that it is not affordable that common people cannot buy them. I do agree if you decide to buy the most expensive nappies out there and buy any new designs that coming out, yes, it is for sure, POSH! But who needs to buy a nappy at £30? When I first wanted to use real nappies , it was 5 years ago for my first daughter. At this time, we did not really have a comfortable budget {not to say that we were really tight} so during my pregnancy, I tried my best to find the best deal. And to be honest, I really thought that strangely “using cloth nappies” is not …
