summer of love
Well, the sun has finally started to shine in London and when you have a baby it means you spend almost all your days in the park. Actually, even if you don't have a baby, it's just I'm in the kiddie park pushing a swing instead of sipping ice cold cider under a tree... Either way, I have a few little essentials that I put in my bag a few weeks ago and haven't taken them out since. The first is lip balm - my lips get dry in the heat so I usually have a lip balm in every pocket, bag and buggy just in case. I'm a slave to Carex original lip balm for a cold tingle during this heatwave. I have also fallen back in love with Liz Earle's Botanical Essence™ No.1 - I love getting a waft of it's bergamot and lavender notes in the summer breeze. Plus, its 98% natural ingredients which as I've said before, as a mummy is a reassuring little nugget. Finally, I've got Institut Esthederm UV inCellium Spray, which is a godsend in a bottle. it protects the skin against the environment against harmful UV rays - erm, genius. It leaves a gorgeous sheen on the skin too, so no dry or dehydrated cheeks after a day in the sun. Yes please!
