It’s that time of year again! Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, and I’m sure you (like myself) are thinking about the perfect gifts for our loved ones.
A lot of people like to get pampered, and a wonderful gift to receive is the gift of pampering! I’m going to share with you some excellent treatment gift ideas for your loved ones. Continue reading Top Treatment Gift Ideas
She’s here! Well 8 weeks ago she arrived… I’d like to say that everything has been smooth sailing, but to be honest I have been very tired and my brain, to say the least, hasn’t been quite all there. So, I didn’t want to be writing anything on my page then looking back at it with extreme regret haha. ‘Mom brain’ is real apparently! Or maybe it’s just the lack of sleep from getting up to feed a tiny beautiful human every 1-3 hours all night and day. My little girl is very hungry and will, most nights, wake up every 2 hours to feed. The nights are long, but I absolutely love and cherish the bonding. Continue reading Post-pregnancy Skin
It’s that time again! Another school season has embarked upon us. Over the summer month’s I have a lot of parent’s that bring their teenagers in for acne and skin treatment’s. We offer various different options for them depending on how their skin condition is. If it’s mild I may recommend just a version of a mini facial. Now when we think of a facial, we think of spa relaxation. But I don’t unfortunately offer any relaxing treatments. We get down to business and aim for results. With a mini facial I usually recommend that it’s something they need to fit into their routine. Coming in as much as 1-4 times a month (so weekly in some cases). I would only recommend this routine to someone who has superficial breakouts, needs a general clean up, or was using the wrong products/make up for their skin and just needs to get back on track.
This too can be done at home very easily. You can perform this mini facial at home on yourself in conjunction with other services you may be getting as well (always consult on what products to use with your expert to ensure they will not conflict with any other treatments you may be receiving).

Last Sunday, I had my shower! It was cutting it close to the due date but I found I was torn between having the shower after the baby is born, so everyone can meet her, or having it before her arrival. As a result of my indecisiveness (I think that’s a word haha) the date kept getting pushed and pushed then finally we came to a decision and set a date for before the baby arrives. My mom, Nicola and my Aunt put it on for me, and did they ever do a beautiful job! The walls were filled with pink and white balloons (300 to be exact) and I had some beautiful flower arrangements done by my sister-in law. The day couldn’t have been more perfect, although, I was very nervous going into the day. I’m not one to have events put on for me. I felt almost embarrassed when I sat there for an hour and a half opening baby gifts in front of all the guests. However, I love putting events on for other people and making them feel special.
One of the gifts was from three close friends, of whom are sisters, that are basically extended family for us. They gifted this basket loaded (I mean loaded) with goodies big and small for the new little one. They didn’t even leave out the red and sparkling wine for me after the birth! They know me so well… Once I was home and unloaded all the adorable gifts inside the basket, I realized I could make use of the basket and turn it into a bassinet. It is hand crafted in Vietnam and the quality is very good. Continue reading Bassinet DIY
