Little Bu Non-Toxic Nail Polish
I'm hoping I have a few years yet before my daughter is interested in nail polish (out of curiosity, when does this happen?!)... but when the time comes, I'll be buying her the Little BU non-toxic polishes. The nail polishes are water-based, odour-less, quick drying, completely non-toxic and free of all the nasty chemicals normally ...

MAC Skin Finish
I need to preference this post: I am not big on products anymore. There was a time during which I had the false hope that a new pot of eye shadow would revolutionize my look -- it never did. But sometimes I do discover something that makes my life a little easier. I am always tying ...

DIY summer necklaces
Last week on the beach, my kids and I spent quite a while looking for shells (I don't know who enjoyed it more, the kids or I -- it's just so relaxing!!). And yesterday we made some fun, summery necklaces out of them. Look for the shells with a little hole in them, and use ...

Yoga for you and your baby
When I was pregnant with Sara I went to yoga class once a week faithfully. I danced around the room with other pregnant ladies and connected with my baby embracing my belly. After her birth I went back to a weekly baby massage/yoga class until Sara was crawling around and yoga wasn't an option any ...

Oh, I'm in love with the cute packaging of the BabyBearShop products. So adorable! This line of organic products is maybe not extensive but it is absolutely enough for what I need. Loving the cheeky baby butter that I'm using for Ava! The lip balms are delicious too (and they come in the cutest packaging), ...

Win! Inlight spoil-yourself-package
Remember my write up on the 100% organic INLIGHT Nyp Balm? I love that cream and the fact that it's so multi-purpose. Recently, I've also been using the INLIGHT Restorative Body Butter -- very nice, and since I'm still breastfeeding also a very safe choice. INLIGHT, the 100% organic skin care brand, was created by ...

Dear Avocado...Thank you.
The summer in New York City has been brutal.  I've heard that it was the hottest July on record but August was pretty unbearable as well.  Meanwhile, I have been outdoors most of the time, forgetting to re-apply sunscreen and definitely not taking care of my hair which now is the consistency of straw.   So... ...

Sidewalk Shoe Survival Balm
Rejoice!  Summer is here in full force and with the clunky boots now tossed to the back of the closet it's time to break out the cute sandals and flats. But oh my… ouch... so uncool... breaking in the new shoes for the new season also means blisters and sore feet! A very good friend ...

Original Sprout Hair Care for Kids
One of my twin daughters has stick-straight blond hair while the other is a brunette with a thick mane of curly ringlets.  During the morning routine the blond is pretty easy -- a quick comb through and she is good to go.  The curly brunette however, takes a little more work to get camera ready ...

Liz Earle, natural skincare
I've been on the look-out for skincare that works for a while now. I have my requirements, of course: it should be gentle, natural, affordable and smell really good. It should also be simple and straightforward -- what I don't like are those brands which offer a million products to be used on top of ...

Coola Sun Care
Is there anything more mentally taxing then applying sunscreen to small kids? I love the summer and all, but the one thing that really causes anxiety during the morning routine is when we have to apply sunscreen to the family. I hate it.  The chase....The begging them to stand still...The sudden jerky movements while you ...

Safe to be polished, with Priti Princess
Things change when you become a mum.  You start behaving differently -- you suddenly do things that you've previously thought you'd never do.  Like changing a nappy in public. Or buying loads of pink for your little girl.  Or letting them sleep in your bed. Or letting them use make-up. I think if you had told ...

A possible saviour called Cupcake
My friend calls winter 'soft-play-season' and she dreads it every year.  Year one of having children I thought she was just being miserable, and I loved watching my baby boy smile as some slightly clownish adults sang nursery rhymes to him in a church hall.  In Year two I was too preoccupied with the new ...

What I can't leave the house without ...
Anyone who knows me will find it somewhat hysterical that I would be writing about my favourite 'beauty' product.  I'm one of those girls who considers mascara and lip-balm "dolling myself up".  I'm pretty useless in that whole arena and since having kids even worse. The only 'area' that I did try and spend a ...

Something for the mommies....Lollia Bubble Bath
Bubble Baths are considered a real treat at our house.  Lately, my girls seem to go suddenly deaf when I call them to come in for an evening bath, but when I mention that bubbles will be present... it's party time!   That being said, I have spent countless dollars trying all sorts of “organic” ...

Physique 57 -- the workout that actually works
I wish it wasn’t the case but I don't like to work out.  I loathe the gym.  The few times I dabbled in Yoga and Pilates I would be all gung-ho for a few months only to eventually find myself watching the clock like a hawk the entire time (is it over now?....now? ...what about ...

Baby hair gel
Way back before I had children, I used to love making homemade beauty products -- I gave all my friends handmade lip balm for Christmas one year, and I'd make facial masks and other potions for myself.  Now that time is of the essence and we are rushing to get out the door, I don't ...

Everything Under the Sun is a new book out by Molly Oldfield. The book is a collection of answers to 366 curious questions asked by children from around the world. Fascinating facts are accompanied by vibrant illustrations from a selection of great illustrators, making the book as cute as it is educational. The book is based on the award-winning podcast @everythingunderthesunpod also by Molly Oldfield, where she and other experts answer questions sent in from children. We’ve been listening to Molly’s podcast episodes in the car, and we’re all learning so much! We’ve learned about bees and wind, narwhals and unicorns, to Egyptians and mummies. It’s so cute! I can’t recommend the book highly enough. Whether you read a question a day, or dip into it whenever you are feeling curious, this is a book to treasure and share all year round. It would also make a wonderful birthday gift for any young person in your life. @mollyoldfieldwrites @courtneyadamo #babyccinobooks #babyccinoreads
