Dry / Damaged Haircare with OGX - KuKuĂ­ Oil Range

I have recently been trying out the 'kukuĂ­ oil' range by one of my favourite hair care brands OGX. 

I have to say when picking OGX products the range is very extensive and although I want to try every single shampoo and conditioner I have always leaned towards the coconut milk one as I love the creamy sweet 'dessert like' fragrance. 

I was advised to try the 'kukuĂ­ oil' range based on my hair needs and I have to say the results were amazing! 

The shampoo and conditioner when used alone made my dry hair feel hydrated & left a perfectly shiny finish coupled with the 'anti-frizz' Hydrating oil to make it feel super soft to touch. 

Being a busy working mum of two I literally have no time to do the full beauty regime and this just made things incredibly easy for me. 
The exotic formula made with kukuĂ­ nut oil left a finish which stood the test of time. 

I was able to use to 3 products to work their magic and found I only needed to wash my hair on every third day which is usually my aim. 
Moving on to how it smells which is usually what sells hair care to me - I can only describe it as 'holiday in a bottle' what that means to me is it somehow reminds me of every hot holiday I've been on! It is literally edible! 

If you haven't tried the kukuĂ­ oil range by OGX I would highly recommend you checking them out. 

They also do miniature size bottles which would make a fabulous stocking filler! 
Have you tried the kukuĂ­ oil range? What were your thoughts?

Magnet Mouse London | Magic Mice With Magnet Technology

'So simple, you can fasten a romper with your eyes shut, in seconds'. This is the perfect way to describe London organic baby clothes designer Magnet Mouse.

I am a busy mummy of two girls under two & I love a 'mummy hack'. Magnet Mouse have one of the best hacks mummy hacks I have seen in the last 20 months!

Kaia was very kindly sent the prettiest, classic 'Pink Magic Mice' onesie from their new collection.

Firstly the packaging, this is everything to me - especially when it comes to gift giving. The attention to detail was perfectly stunning. Perfect for a baby shower or Christmas present for a new family addition.
I would love to have got those first 'newborn' pictures of my little lady in one of these as I can bet they would have been gorgeous! If you are expecting - check them out!

The onesie felt super soft & cosy packed beautifully with tissue paper & secured with a Magnet Mouse London sticker, neatly placed in a soft blue muslin bag with a pretty pink ribbon.

The onesie is just beautiful! If that isn't enough this babygrow really is, to put it simply, the easiest thing we have ever put on her! I am not surprised they are shortlisted to win at the 2017 Mother & Baby awards, in addition to their back catalogue of which their are too many to mention!

Here is a video of me dressing Kaia in seconds, should you need convincing!
The clever 'patent pending' magnet technology either side replacing where poppers would be allows you to dress your baby hassle free in seconds, you wont even hear complaints from Daddy's!
I am due to go back to work next month and on the days daddy looks after baby these will be my 'go to' changing bag essentials to make his life a little easier! The perfect babygrow for the busy mum or dad!
I'm hoping the pictures have shown you just how gorgeous & classic the sleepsuit is. If not here are a few more!
The Peter Pan collar is beautiful, it adds that 'Spanish' traditional look to the onesie & teamed with a bolero it is just stunning.
I loved (& Kaia loved) testing out this sleepsuit from Magnet Mouse, the boys selection on the website is just as adorable! Please go & check them out, everything is linked below.

Have you tried Magnet Mouse sleepsuits?

Babease Baby Plan | Delightfully Nutritious

The balanced range of baby food by Babease has been developed by a team of experts to provide you with the perfect blend of ingredients to help introduce your baby to real food and tasty flavours.
Having what I can now call a 'fussy eater' I am always delighted at being able to try new products and the Babease 'Baby Plan' did not disappoint.

The first thing I noticed was the quality of the packaging. The pouches feel very 'full' and look great with a cardboard wrapper which just adds that feeling of quality.

All of the products in the Babease range are organic, stage 1 offering a perfect introduction to first flavours, and stage 2 offers a wider, more textured range of ingredients to expand your baby's palate.

Leia's favourite was the 'Sweet potato, tomato, carrot & quinoa with chickpeas & cumin', the flavours looked and smelt delicious & really expanded on our meal ideas for her which I loved.

My personal favourite was the 'Banana, pear & blueberry with brown rice' not that I make a habit of eating baby food, but you have to try what they are eating, right?!

The inside cover of the cardboard on each flavour contains useful recipes suitable for the whole family, my favourite was the handmade roasted roots, the perfect autumnal side dish, giving you plenty of vitamins A & C as well as folate & potassium.

The thing I love about Babease is that the ingredients on the packaging are clear & concise, they use a pie chart to show what the pouches contain which is very unique, great for if you are shopping in a rush!

You can find the Babease range in Boots or on Amazon or alternatively shop on the Babease website.

You can find out more about Babease here & share your own recipes & top tips on what gets you through the day!

Nimble Babies - For Perfectly Clean Bottles | Rebecca Hollick

Nimble Babies is the perfect solution to make cleaning bottles that little bit easier

Its clever technology gets rid of greasy milk film & odour from your baby's bottles.

Nimble Babies Milk Buster is specifically designed
to gently detach milk fat and proteins from plastic
unlike washing-up liquids that target food grease.

Over the last few weeks I have been putting it to the test, the main thing I have found is the design of the bottle is fantastic, targeting the whole bottle with just 2 sprays (its also safe to use on teats)
You simply add warm water up to the first mark on a standard bottle, I personally let it sit for a minute and then brush of using a bottle brush & rinse, followed by my usual sterilising process.

Using the solution has given me piece of mind when washing bottles that all residue is being removed prior to sterilising which is fantastic for me with two under two, I am always looking for innovative products that save time but are also safe to use.
