Warm and Cosy(toes)

With autumn almost bypassing us by hitting us with wintery weather, I thought that now is the time to start buying in all of the winter weather gear for the four children. This included a cosytoes for Che's new stroller.

Che being my fourth baby, I am well versed in buying cosytoes for the stupid amount of pushchairs I have 'roadtested' over the years. This time around however, there are an endless list of products on the market for keeping our babies warm and dry.

The aim of my shopping mission was to find a cosytoes that matched the gorgeous electric blue of Che's new O'Baby Atlas Circles stroller. And, to also be big enough and of course warm enough for it to last him until he no longer needs to be pushed about.

It's not very often, when looking for a baby product, that I find everything I'm looking for all in one place, so I was beyond happy when I stumbled across the website for Little Snuggler.

After looking through the gorgeous fleece fabrics, I settled upon the super cute 'Little Monsters' design and hastily added it to my basket.

Three days later, Che was the proud owner of a beautiful new cosytoes which would last him until he's around 3years old!

The little Dude's verdict? He loves it! He chats non stop to the monsters and pulls at them to see more. Now he has mastered a new word 'Look', he is constantly pointing and shouting at me to look at his new favourite thing about his buggy.

I love the fact that the Little Snuggler is bright, stylish and comfortable. As it also offers 2 double layers of fleece fabric to add extra warmth and comfort to your baby/toddlers journey, my frequent walking expeditions throughout the winter will no longer be a worry.

If you too are in the process of looking to keep your children warm this winter, do take a look at the Little Snuggler website and check out the gorgeous designs for both boys and girls.

REVIEW: Olay - Total Effects Wake Up Wonder.

Having four young children, I usually go for the supermarket brand of skincare as money is often tight, so when I was asked to review Olay Total Effects Wake Up Wonder, I was ecstatic!

I've heard many good things about the Olay brand over the years, but have never actually gotten around to trying it. After using the product for two weeks now, I can honestly say that I wouldn't go back to my old brand.

Olay Total Effect Wake Up Wonder really does exactly what it promises:

Discover its Wake-me-up formula, with Mint Extract, for instant moisture refreshment!
Olay total effects Wake Up Wonder addresses first signs of ageing with 7 age defying effects to wake up creased tired looking skin.
  • Minimises lines: Visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as they start to develop
  • Nourishing Moisturisation: Intensively hydrates the skin as it begins to show signs of dryness
  • Tone Enhancement: Balances colour & visibly evens skin tone
  • Gentle Exfoliation: Smoothes and evens skin texture
  • Pore Refinement: Minimizes the appearance of pores as they become slightly more noticeable
  • Brightening: For a radiant healthy glow
  • Reduces the appearance of skin imperfections
Being 28 I don't have many lines and wrinkles as yet,(this is the perfect time to start using anti-aging products though, right?) My laughter lines where smoothed over and my ever increasing frown lines (I'm blaming the four kids for them) looked non-existent. It really did give a noticeable improvement, so much so, that in the past 2 weeks a number of friends and family members have told me how radiant I've been looking, despite me telling them how exhausted I have been feeling!

My skin feels much smoother and looks healthier and skin tone is more even. This product is also a great base for applying make up. Personally, compared to the supermarket brands I've used previously, I couldn't have asked for more.

Olay Total Effects Wake Up Wonder comes in a handy sized bottle with a push dispenser top complete with lid. The design is simple, yet very practical. The bottle is easy to use and makes dispensing the correct amount of moisturiser childs play, with no fiddly screw top lids or a jar of cream which can be accidentally knocked over.

The moisturiser itself is light and easily absorbed. There is no stickiness and it didn't leave my skin looking shiny, just fresh-faced.

If I were handing out awards, Olay Total Effects Wake Up Wonder would win the gold star.
My skin has now felt what it has been missing out on, and it doesn't want to go back!
