I know I say this every month but another month gone before we know it, This time I am going to share you with some of my favorite mummy products as well as children’s products that I have used throughout the month of May. its been a heretic month, no different than the last if I am honest but with the amount of days off the children have had from school and the breaking of the blog (which I explain here) I haven’t had much time to do anything besides parent and online shop (shush).

but enough of me rambling, here are my ‘Mummy’ Favorites from May..

~

Teapigs Everyday Tea – These are so expensive but they are my morning cup of tea, the one that I feel upset that I miss or when the milk goes off and cant have it, I will have one of these a day and they taste lovely, TeaPigs the brand have other more fancy tears as well as the bog standard ‘Everyday’ tea but because I am super picky and such a fussy eater I settled with the boring one and I love having it as part of my morning mummy routine.

Treacle Moon Bath Gel and Body Butter – I found this product during our weekly shop in Tescos, and while once again this is another thing thats a bit more expensive than the usual bath and body care I had to have it, I got the Coconut scented one but the other scents are delightful! if you ever see them around grab the body butter as its just delightful and always fantastic when you are having your much needed Mummy alone time which as we know are few and far between haha.

Batiste Dry Shampoo – Ive probably mentioned this product before in one of my monthy favorites, because frankly what mother doent have this one in their arsenal of hair products! I wish I had known of this when I was a greasy teenager because its been such a life saver when it comes to having presentable hair during the school runs, when you simply havent had the time to jump into the shower and wash your hair, they come in a collection of scents, I have the Blush one and its such a sweet scent! I believe I got this from Home Bargains for a pretty good price as they rarely go on deal in the shops.

Lush Gorgeous Moisturizer (sample pot) – When I did my last next order I decided to ask for a few samples and one of them was this, while they didnt give me much and I am running out now this is so wonderful, its a little expensive so I can see why they only gave me a small amount but what I got has lasted for so long, I am going back to a Lush store on the 3rd of June so I may grab myself a much bigger tub of this lovely scented cream.

Ugly Betty – Mr S was away for most of the end of May, he was in sweden and I spent literally all night while he was gone watching the wonderful and completely ahead of its time with the subjects it covers, from transgender siblings to a young boy growing up and discovering his sexuality and this show was released in 2006! it was such a shame that it was cancelled due to low ratings but those who love it still appreciate this show, while it did have its stereotypical moments its one of those shows that I couldn’t get bored of and always made me laugh

Here is a little clip of it.

Amanda has to be my favorite character, next to Betty’s sister Hilda, but all of them have such wonderful stories and I just wish it lasted a bit longer so it could’ve been explored better than the rush job that is the final four episodes of season four..

Sweet Hearts Hair Design Hair Detangler – We was sent this product after answering a call out on I believe facebook, this lovely Instagram store was offering samples of their own made detangler and I was so excited to give it a try, so far it works wonders, I use it on Amelia’s hair after her hair was or sometimes before school when her hair just wont knotout, I have also used it on Robins mess of hair because of how she sleeps it gets all tangled up at the back, and we love it, it smells lovely and does the job just fine without leaving any sticky residue on the hair and I love how its made from all organic ingredients, its something I wish I had when Amelia was smaller as she hated having her hair brushed because of how much it got tangled up, not a sales pitch I promise but you must go and get yourself some if your children’s hair can get a little wild like mine haha.

And there we have my monthly favorites in May, I might make that a little theme for the next months products, seeing as I am a mummy blogger, I wonder what exciting things we have in Junes Monthly Favorites…

Until next time

I am useless, I had planned to do April’s box bit with how busy that month was it just never happened but no worries, its time to explore what I got on the May box! and how beautiful does this box look! I had a huge clear out over the weekend and chucked out all my older boxes because I simply didn’t have the room for them but decided to keep all the pretty limited ones and this one has joined the collection! but enough about the box.. onto the goodies!!

Just For Feet Jelly Foot Soak – I know this sounds really weird but when feet care is needed its often down the weird route, I plan on doing a nice review about this in an up coming post so I can fully share with you what I completely think of this fun and interesting product.

Maria Nala Shampoo and Conditioner – This shampoo is wonderful! I wish I had this when I was growing up as my hair was this frizzy mess as a teen and this shampoo and conditioner is such a great little set, I am usually really picky with what I put on my hair with the fact that my hair can get very greasy quickly but this has made my hair feel smooth and it smells amazing too.

Kueshi Facial Makeup Remover – Being a mother, my makeup remove is usually a baby wipe because who  has time to take their face off properly, but I have always wanted to try a liquid based remover and this one with an oil, that’s there to give your tired skin a little refreshing sensation when you remove your makeup, it works fantastically and I am glad this was part of this months box.

Trifle Cosmetics Praline Palette  – One can never have to many palettes right? this one from Trifle Cosmetics, which I have never heard of before is beautiful! six dark shades that can be used wet or dry, the shades are stunning and I love the packaging too, perfect size to fit in a handbag or travel bag!

and the a wonderful little extra treat of this interesting tea called We Are Tea, I am so picky when it comes to tea, I literally only drink one type and that’s English Breakfast but I am willing to give Ear Grey a go as it does have such a delightful scent and I know you aren’t meant to but a dash of milk and some sugar made this tea perfect for me.

That’s it for this months box, one of the things about Glossybox that I love is how many items that are vegan friendly and also friendly to our environment, this has to have been my favorite box so far, if you are interested in trying Glossybox yourself click here.

Until next time
