We all remember the Tree of Life breastfeeding selfies right? I sort of missed the boat with those myself - most of my breastfeeding photos were from when Arthur was much smaller, and I never quite found the time to sit down and work out just how to actually make the photo! Nevertheless, the images are a wonderful keepsake for any parent, breastfeeding or bottle feeding (I saw some great alternatives) and it made me realise that if I were to make a memory box for Arthur, I don't actually have that many things to put in there!

Just before Xmas I was sent some of the XYZ Smart Collagen Luxe Cream to try out. I had heard of this cream before in the past, but only in relation to the 'tattoo healing' cream it was originally developed to be used as. Having the grand total of zero tattoos myself, this sort of passed me by - but I can see how this would work. The cream is now being hailed as the next best thing for wtrinkles and anti-ageing - claiming to Increase your skin’s natural collagen production to lift, firm and smooth the skin and visibly reduce lines and wrinkles, making you look 7.5 years younger.....which at the age of 31 would give me the face of a 24 year old. Yes please! Having been endorsed by the likes of Vogue, Elle and Cosmopolitan and being 100% vegan, it certainly grabbed my attention. As with most skincare reviews, I like to give it a try over a number of weeks in order to see a true result.

It's been a while since I've published a blog post...not since last year in fact, which makes it sound significantly longer!!
I'd already got used to cramming most of my blogging into the hour of 9-10pm once I'd 'finally' managed to get my toddler to sleep, but then on Christmas Eve it just hit me with full force: morning sickness...
