My best buys this month
Rimmel Scandal eyes xtreme Mascara:
I tend to usually buy a higher end mascara,Bare minerals "lash domination" I have used for a couple of years now and get on really well with. But I was in need of a new one. With christmas just round the corner, and not really wanting to spend much on makeup, I decided to just head to boots to get one. I ended up choosing the "rimmel scandal eyes mascara" and I really like it! I can't really say a bad thing about it, its not clumpy, it dries really quickly, it doesn't transfer and makes my lashes appear really long. I don't know why, but I just expected it too be no good, and that I would have to return to one of my normal trusted brands. Its so affordable at £4.99 too. No complaints here.
New look Loungwear set:
I had been on the look out for a really good lounger set for a while. As soon as I get home I always put comfy clothes on, and if I'm not going anywhere I don't know about you, but I dont tend to not bother wearing an outfit. I guess this is the same for most people! I had found such a nice loungewear set from boux avenue which was £50 for the set. But, I had a 20% off code which then decided not to work. I got so annoyed and just decided not to order it, but I am so pleased I didn't, whilst christmas shopping I came across this set for under £30 and its really soft and well made. The trousers tie around the waist with a big satin ribbon, and so does the top at the back Its really comfy and fits so nicely. I have to say I love nightwear! So loungwear is just that bit more acceptable during the day. I think! They've got quite a few different sets in at the moment, so I would advise to have a look before heading to the more expensive shops. (Sorry for the cringe photo! I could of put the shop one up, but I just prefer using my own.)
So my mission to get Emelia to have a dummy to sooth her has kind of ended in the sense of i'm just going with what she wants. Sometimes she wants it, sometimes she doesn't! She's quite a finger sucker to be honest, so she does pacify herself occasionally. I was recommended to try the Nuk latex dummy which has a curved teat, and it is slightly dimpled and not as big as some of the other dummies out there. It worked as soon as I gave it to her, which usually she pulls the funniest faces, and just spits it out and cries! I would definitely recommend mums to give them a try which is why they are on my best buys, especially if there child is not taking to one. I just think Emelia isn't bothered by a dummy at all, and in the long run as I'm told by a lot of people I will probably be quite glad of this, but i'm pleased i've got this one, and also a "mam" one that seem to work if she really does want it.
Aero Hot chocolate
Me and my sister are massive hot chocolate lovers, (isn't everyone) but I am a bit fussy though so it has to be a good one. Not too thick, not too sweet, or too chocolatey. We came across this one just simply because it was on offer, and I hadn't seen it in shops before so we thought we would give it a go. I am so glad we did! I have tried a lot, but this one is my new favourite! I know its just a hot chocolate, but its perfect and definitely one to try (just dont look at the calorie/sugar content). So we made ours with frothy hot milk and topped with marshmallows and it tastes really luxurious and like one you would buy from a café.
Snuffle babe vapour rub:
I've used a few other products from the snuffle babe range, which I find really work well. So when Emelia started to get blocked up again a couple of weeks a go, I thought I would try this too. Its basically adult vapour rub just in baby safe version, but smells very similar just a lot milder. It works in the same way so advises to place it on a cloth near to baby, or rub onto the neck and chest area so it can be easily inhaled. I also put it on Emelia's feet which I find works really well and it definitely helped her breath a lot more easily especially at night. You can't go wrong with this one, its a good one to have handy in the cupboard for when you may need it.
