I hope you can still enjoy it. Do you know FRUGI? Frugi is a UK brand that makes Organic clothes that are cut for clothes!

Review of the New ECOPIPO All in One Cloth diaper: A Snugly absorbent Nappy

Sunday morning, and End of the week. This week was about ECOPIPO Cloth Diapers and after sharing about the Ecopipo V2 pocket nappy, I will now share with you the last Nappy they have launched: The NEW AIO {All in One} Ecopipo Cloth Nappy. Launched last week, as soon as I saw it I wanted to try it. Why? I love AIO’s for the ease of use: convenience really. You just put them on your baby like a disposable, all ready to go an that is all : no stuffing required and when you put them into the wash, no un-stuffing {it can be very yucky if you have to do so :-p}. Well I have ordered mine and It has been the most difficult part. I love all the designs and because my daughters love Pink {a lot}, I was hesitating between Owls and Kittens. I did get both eventually and what a SUCCESS when they arrived. My Baba1 said: “Oh mummy can we put the Owls now please on Baba2? Then the kittens? …

New Vegetarian treat : Eggless Chocolate Fondant Cake recipe

Preparing the long Bank Holiday Weekend, yesterday has been a busy day  here at Oummanna HQ. I really hope the weather will be with us to be able a day out at the parc with a family pique-nique.

Introducing Ecopipo Cloth Diapers: Review of the Ecopipo V2 Pocket Cloth nappy

Hello Cloth Bumming enthousiasts! This week, the brand I will be talking about is ECOPIPO. Why Ecopipo? Because I absolutely did not know about them until Real Nappy Week. Really, never heard this nappy name before or seen any! This is what I love with RNW, it gives you the opportunity to discover and try new brands at discounted price. How did I find Ecopipo? I was looking to Fill Your Pants website to take advantage of their RNW offers, when I discovered two new brands: Petit Lulu and Ecopipo! The prints of the Ecopipo range won the day and I decided to try them out. But as usual, I never buy a nappy  {or anything else in fact} without checking everywhere and trying to grasp utmost informations possible. And here we are , I found the Ecopipo UK website! Sometimes, I am not sure that it is a great thing that I find what I am looking for neither for my bank account or my Poor Little CB. About Ecopipo {Ectract of Ecopipo website} …

My natural homemade Coconut Shampoo Bar for Dry and Curly Hair

Today, let’s talk Natural cosmetics and shampoo bars. Do you remember my shampoo bar on Instagram? You know the rose one…sure you know. I was really tempted to try and make my own shampoo bar. Why Did I decide to stop traditional shampoos for no poo or shampoo bar? I was just tired of loosing my hair and spending a huge amount of money in nocive and clearly useless products. All this waste of packaging was also one of my motivation factor and wanted to stop using any product containing SLS {Sodium Laurel Sulfate}. Surely, I was scared of switching to a shampoo bar and have a fear that it will mess up my hair. Switching your beauty routine is frightening! It took me months to build up the courage! If you’re on the fence or just want to know a little more about how they work– then let me explain! Shampoo bars are actually solid bars of soap that are made specifically for hair. In fact, they were commonly used before our traditional shampoo and conditions were invented. …

Egg free Basic sponge cake Recipe with Condensed milk

It is late but I just realised that I forgot to share with you my Egg Free Basic Sponge cake recipe with Condensed milk! This recipe saved my life, I am absolutely not exaggerating. Baba1 has been diagnosed with egg allergy since birth, and I tried my best for her first birthday to make her a beautiful egg free cake but it was not easy as at this time, she was also allergic to Cow Milk Proteins and other few things. So for her first birthday, I am afraid we have not done any cake. For her second birthday, I promised myself that this little girl will have a beautiful cake {thankfully she outgrown her milk allergy} and tried to find a very good recipe: this one I am sharing . This recipe is my BASIC recipe, I use it for mostly any cakes. Why? It works. The cake is fluffy, moisty and we are all happy! Bare in mind that there is still a light difference than an usual cake, if I can say …

Are Emma’s Diary Free Packs Useful?

Good Morning Ladies and Gents! Well, today’s talk: Pregnancy! If you are pregnant or have been pregnant –sorry guys not you-, you know about this: Emma’s diary. We all remember our first 12 weeks appointment with the midwife and the Bounty Pregnancy Information folder that she, obviously, generously gave to us , along with our Beloved Green Notes {will explain this later}. [Note to myself: notes are not green anymore: NHS finally understood that a bit of confidentiality is Great!] Well in this pack, along with a LOOOOOOOT of vouchers {you will get used to them even if annoying}, you receive your Emma’s Diary Pregnancy Guide. This Guide has been my little comforter for my first pregnancy. I really loved it as it was giving me what I did not find in my NHS care, through my midwife: Advices, tips, and explanations. I found It was clever to describe pregnancy symptoms through Emma’s pregnancy {She gets pregnant very often, though! just joking}. Through her own journey, I was finding that my own was normal and had nothing …

Close Parent Pop in Newborn Reusable Nappies Review

Special Close parent week, so today I will talk about Newborn Pop-ins reusable nappies. You might be wondering why? Are you willing to cloth bum your little Baba from birth? If yes, I am sorry to tell you that Birth to Potty {BTP} nappies won’t do the Job. I know that retailers/manufacturers are selling them pretending so but I will now tell you the truth: unless your little Baba weights at least 8lbs or more {4kgs+}, BTP won’t fit her. Tested and approved by myself: I learnt it the hard way unfortunately! I know that most people will not be willing to invest on Newborn nappies which I completely understand as Cloth nappies are quite expensive {Meaning punctually but not in long term}. Well this is when our Newborn pop-ins enter in the scene! For Baba2, not willing to do the same mistake than for Baba1, I have invested on some Newborn nappies {will show you later what I bought then and what I have added for Baba3}. But after reading a lot of reviews, seen a lot …

Close Parent Pop-in V2 New Generation Reusable Nappies Review

This week I want to talk to you about Pop-ins reusable nappies. Why? Simply because I love them and have used them a lot. I will be completely honest with you , when I was pregnant of Baba2 and started my search for great nappies , I have not heard at all about them. Maybe and surely because my main references were Blogs and Vlogs that are mainly US Based. So how did I hear about them? I am quite a shy lady and was really anxious about going to a nappucchinos { not everyone is at ease surrounded by strangers – being a Muslim with a veil does not help if you see what I mean}. When I meet new people, they always assume who I am , where I am from and how I live, which is quite annoying and challenging in the same time. I have my own history like any other woman on this earth and deserve a bit of empathy… Well, that is why I usually like blogging and emails as people …
