Ensuring you get enough vitamins and minerals is always a good idea, and never more so than during pregnancy. But what vitamins and minerals should we be looking for and how will they boost ours and our unborn baby’s health?
Keeping up the motivation to exercise on a regular basis isn’t easy at the best of times, throw in pregnancy and all that comes with it; I’m talking an ever increasing belly, never ending tiredness, aches, pains and the desire to demolish entire packs of biscuits in one sitting, and it can seem like a task of Everest proportions.
As a beauty obsessive who loves to keep stubble free at all times (or at least tries to), I have long been a fan of epilating. It’s quick, effective, produces results that last for weeks and although admittedly can be rather painful at times, a lot more convenient than having to visit a salon every few weeks.
As a mum of boys (ok, one of them may be still in my tummy for another two weeks but that still counts right?) it can be easy to get disillusioned with the array of boys clothes on offer.
Love the idea of a barre workout but looking for something a little more dynamic? Recently exported from the US, Xtend Barre takes all the chiseling elements of a traditional barre class, think pulsing and micro movements, and give it s a tougher more energetic twist that is Pilates and dance amplified.
There’s nothing more special than snuggling in to the smooth, soft and deliciously, milky smelling skin of our newborn. But with their hyper sensitive skin prone to dryness, itching and flaking your baby’s skincare is just as important as the rest of their routine.
An essential part of your daily skin regime, the right cleanser will not only leave your skin perfectly clean and clear but will improve skin texture, fight off the years and reverse the daily effects of dirt and make-up on your skin.

So far we’ve been very fortunate and unlike myself and my husaband as children, our son doesn’t suffer from any major allergies. He does however get the occasional bout of mild eczema on his cheeks and chin.
Its like clock work. Every spring once the weather has finally warmed up, my desire to lounge on the sofa indulging in winter stodge (tell me it’s not just me) magically disappears and in its place, the sudden need to cleanse, nurture and nourish.

Bra’s and pregnancy are a bit of a catch 22. A baby pushing up in to your rib cage hardly makes strapping a bra around your chest the most enticing idea, yet if we want our breasts to return to their pre-pregnancy glory (or at least not drop to our knees) then a good supportive bra is a necessity, especially when exercising.
I’m not sure about you but if there is ever a time I feel like spoiling myself with a beautifying and pampering treatment it’s when I’m pregnant.
One of the joys of working in the beauty industry is getting to test out a huge range of beauty products (I know, stating the obvious here). Yet if truth be told, most of the products out there don’t do a whole lot. Which is why I (and you may have noticed) keep going back to a few key brands that I know I can rely on to produce to the goods. There are occasions however, when I stumble across a new range of product that really deserves shouting about.
If you’ve ever tried exercising during pregnancy you will know that the challenge to find comfortable and stylish, well fitting activewear is very real. Tops ride up, over-bump leggings are far too hot and under-bump leggings fall down at any significant movement (so basically all the time!).
