Maybe its because I haven’t had a regular waistline in over two years or because there is simply no room to experiment with clothes when you’re pregnant but lately I have a newfound respect for jewelry. Whether it’s gold or silver, delicate or slightly chunky I am loving this new vibe I’m feeling right now.
style and beauty
Lately I have been making a conscious effort to stop pulling my hair into a topknot everyday. It’s the easiest and most practical style to pull off for all busy women with long hair but especially for mamas like me who have a kid attached to their hip and absolutely no time in the morning to make their heads look presentable. So here’s what’s been inspiring me lately to be a tad more creative with my hair. Five minute hairstyles, ladies!
Georgie has eczema. Since he was three years old he’s suffered with the condition that causes dry, inflamed, irritable and itchy skin. While we are currently winning the battle against it by adjusting his diet- something I will write about soon- when James’s little legs started developing dry, red patches I immediately began trying out a plethora of home remedies I would once try with Georgie when he was a baby. One I had never tried, which I didn’t even think to try and which has shocked me with its effectiveness, is beeswax.
I am 100% a t-shirt and jeans girl. I may throw in some quirkiness and/or formality from time to time but hands down, my go-to and most favourite piece of clothing is the good old t-shirt. Which means I am so very happy that t-shirts are becoming statement pieces and totally acceptable evening wear too. Inspiration on how to style your favourite tees this summer.
While there’s little I can do about those bags under my eyes, I suppose I could sort out some form of babysitting and make my way to a spa or a really great facialist and get myself a proper skin treatment. Obviously that’s not gonna happen. So in the meantime I’m improvising. I’ve been researching ways I can treat my skin from home. Apart from proper cleansing, face masks should be a top priority for everyone because they can make the world of difference. I should know, I’ve been trying a few over the past month and have nailed down my favourite three DIY face masks you can make with stuff you already have in your kitchen. And actually get results.
