surcareWe were very lucky to be picked to review a big box of goodies from Surcare Sensitive. Their range of sensitive washing detergents are not only safe for little people’s skin, they contain no dyes, enzymes or acids, so great for sensitive skin. My family (all of us) suffer from dry skin and my husband with sensitive skin, so this was a great chance for us to see if special products could make any difference!

We were sent the following for Jasper, and these were his notes that he wanted to get across:-

  • Organic Soft Dressing Gown – this was beautifully soft and delicate on his skin and he also liked the fact it made him look like a polar bear. He enjoyed putting it on and making ‘roar’ noises just as his little sister was going to sleep. He also noted this was ‘cuddly’ and ‘bootiful.’
  • Organic Babies Wash and Dry Skin Lotion – the wash was lovely, frothed up really easily and only a little was needed to clean his hair and body. Jasper enjoyed the bubbles and proceeded to make a bubble beard and hat for himself. The dry skin lotion he enjoyed on his arms and feet – asking again for a foot rub and ‘more lotion’ for his bob the builder toy on the bed.
  • Octopus Rattle – this beautiful 100% cotton rattle was lovely. Really bright and Jasper decided his little sister didn’t need it, and proceeded to cuddle it and take it everywhere with him including the bathroom

I then reviewed the Sensitive Liquid, Bio Gel, Capsules and Fabric Condition – I really loved this range. Completely fragrance free, demagogically tested and approved and only a little bit was needed to clean the huge washing loads. I was eager to use these because with Fleur being so young I was wary of using traditional conditioners on her skin. Due to containing no dyes, enzymes or acids, they are designed to be delicate. Leaving the washing soft, clean and smelling fresh I was suspecting them to be on the higher price range than standard washing items – but on sale for only £3.00 RRP in Sainsbury’s or Waitrose, I was actually shocked at the price!

I really enjoyed the pack of items we received, Jasper loved his first joint review with me and the our clothes we left soft, clean and smelling beautiful. Just what I needed with a busy life and a newborn. More information on Surcare can be found here:-

Okay, so having a little boy is totally cool – mainly because we get to hang out and do ‘boy’ things like get messy, but also the clothes. It is really hard finding cool boys clothes, and whilst I am not a very cool mother, I like to try and dress him in young, funky clothes so at least one of us is trendy.

This is where my little love affair of NEXT started. Since Jazzy was a baby, he has worn NEXT clothes. They wash up really well, and the staff are always so lovely, its very easy to go back for more (another issue I seem to have with Majestic Wine) and lately NEXT have really got it spot on trend with their boys clothes.

Some of my favourite pieces for Jazzy are:-

In Third Place – The GENIUS all-in-one Onsie (£20)

Genius Next OnesieTotally gorgeous, soft and worn all the time. Its perfect for that Sunday morning chill out, covers the knees and also can be used as a little going out outfit with hi-top trainers. Love this outfit on him and I know it washes beautifully, as it has (many, many times) been in the wash. Ketchup also came out perfectly off the ‘G’ so for £20 a perfect all rounder here!

In Second Place -  The Cable ‘Mock’ Shirt (£17)

Next Cable Shirt TopThis beautiful little set is a jumper and a shirt all in one, taking the need to attempt to get two pieces of clothing over my 2 year old’s head, allot easier and calmer not only for Jazzy but for mummy as well. It looks mega smart, washes beautifully AND requires no ironing (bonus I know).

Next Car ShoesIn First Place - The Cars Lace Up Shoes (£12)

Yes, my Jazzy is obsessed with cars, buses and anything with wheels and not only adores these shoes but will let me actually put them on him without trying to escape, call ‘kidnap’ or run away and hide his feet under his bottom. These beautiful, bright and really modern little shoes are really soft and…yes, have been through the washing machine and are still as bright as ever. Gorgeous and easy to put on, really nice pattern and look smart with any outfit. Love these little shoes, they totally rock.

So, stuck for something to wear? Head over to NEXT and take a look at their beautiful little boy’s collection and if you feel the need to, yes, add in a pair of shoes for you!

Okay, so this weekend wasn’t a particularly great one. After an awful day at work on the Friday, and being exhausted, the weekend started off at 4am on Saturday morning and never really got any better. People forget that mums and dads that work full time literally survive off no rest, no sleep and no ‘down time.’ After 45+hrs at work, 15+hrs of driving, and unbroken sleep for the last 2+ years – weekends are not a welcomed time. Exhaustion, cleaning, washing, ironing, shopping, changing the beds all take place oh as well as trying to act like a normal, happy and enjoyable family.

This weekend has been hell – with J waking up at 4am both Saturday and Sunday and no – not going back to sleep. Both days held tantrum after tantrum, tears, screaming and of course, all the normal weekend chores and duties; and guess what – we now get to go back to work for another 45+hr week, 15+hrs of driving and MORE TEARS! Yeah! Sometimes I can’t actually believe how lucky I am (note the ridiculous sarcastic tone here) to be a working mum. Have I had enough? Yes.

To top it all off, J now has an obsession with weeing…on my foot. No, really, nothing else makes me happier to be wee’d on after the week’s ive been having, thank you – the ultimate way to say you love someone is obviously to wee on them.

Anyone else had enough?!
