This is the first post of a new section of the blog ! Now the girls are getting bigger I’m finding it abit easier to take a bit of time out each week to re-charge and I thought I would share my ‘mama moments’ with you. Having two two years to run around after is amazing fun but lots of work and between looking after the girls, the house and working I’m pretty exhausted by the end of the week.
Twin daddy is a big gym fan and that’s his thing so he takes time out a couple of times a week to recharge there. I’m more of a bubble bath and glass of rose recharge kind of person or a mooch around a vintage boutique, an early night with a new book and bar of galaxy (caramel please !) – it’s quiet and calming and a balance to the busy days !
Every week I will share my ‘mamas moments’ which I think will help me focus on making sure I take them !
It was my birthday a couple of weeks ago so I decided to treat myself to a subscription from My Little Box. It’s a surprise box of goodies that gets delivered to your door each month ! It actually arrived on my birthday and I was super excited to try everything out.
I loved the packaging and I will be keeping the boxes for handy storage of nail polishes. The beauty products come in a little tote bag and it’s all tied up with a ribbon.
This box had a selection of l’occitane products and a eyeshadow crayon. I really like l’occitane and the verbena soap and body lotion are really fresh smelling. The rose hand cream is soft and floral and I leave it in the changing bag as my hands are always dry from the constant cleaning around after twin toddlers. The shower gel is a bit masculine smelling for me so I gave that to twin daddy for his gym bag ! The crayon was lovely to use and as I apply all my makeup with my hands and in under 3 minutes it fitted into my makeup routine perfectly !
I also got a little cuff which you can decorate but I haven’t had the time yet, I wore it out that evening for my birthday dinner and went for a black and gold look.
There were a few other little items like this cute quote card and a set of dress up magnets with different outfits to put on a magnet doll. I gave these to the girls who loved them, unfortunately the doll was later involved in a twin related dispute and didn’t survive she is now with the headless teddy in toy heaven, anyway I really enjoyed the box it was such a treat to come through the post and I’m already looking forward to the next one !
More mama moments next week !
Have a good week mamas xx
