My favourite beauty products

Up until now my blog posts have been dominated by pregnancy and baby so I thought I would share with you some of my favorite beauty products.

I have two favorite fake tan brands which are St Tropez and Laurens way they both give a good natural looking tan that's not of the orange kind.   I prefer St Tropez lotion to mouse for the simple reason it just goes on my skin better.  I have only used one of Laurens Way products which is the medium mouse they have now bought out the darker than dark which I would love to try.

 Self Tan Classic Lotion 120ml  Medium Mousse

My favourite moisturiser is vitamin e cream after years of not using any moisturiser on my face tut tut i know I tried many none of which seemed to suit my skin and would leave it greasy.  I buy superdrug own brand  and at £2.99 for 475ml its a bargain and lasts ages.

Vitamin E All Over Body Cream 475ml

My current favorite foundation is Benefit Hello Flawless, I say current because it depends how my skin is, how tanned I am etc to what kind of foundation i use I'm finding that this is working best for me at the moment giving me a good coverage and hiding all my blemishes.
"hello flawless!"
So there you have it a few of my favorite beauty products, would be great to hear what yours are?

Speech Delay

So bump is now 4 and he is having problems with his speech I'm at the point now where I'm thinking did I do something wrong? will he ever talk? and I just don't know the answers which is frustrating me so I can only imagine how frustrating it is for him.

His speech started off fine the usual mama, dad, dog etc then it just seemed to stop and no more progress was made and I was too worried at first because my eldest daughter who's almost 20 now didn't really say all that much until she started nursery.

By the time it came to his 2 year review I was slightly concerned and spoke with the health visitor about it and was referred to speech therapy, we waited a while for that and they only saw him once where the speech therapist sat and played with him and gave me things to do at home with him.

We did attempt for him to start nursery last April but it didn't go too well and he didn't go anymore, he is quite a handful and they wouldn't let him stay the whole s…

potty training a 4 year old

So as I said in my previous post about speech delay bump is now 4 and still not potty trained, I started off potty training at 2 and its just been a struggle ever since, I feel like I've hit a brick wall and I just don't know what to do anymore.

he wont sit on the potty or the toilet, have tried everything to encourage him, books, dvds haven't tried a reward chart because he would have no interest in that.  Took his nappy away but he will just wet or pooh himself and not care.

He wears a nappy to nursery and he is due to start reception in September, what am I going to do send him to school in a nappy? I cant do that, I'm hoping and praying he's just going to decide to do it on his own but he is quite happy still wearing a nappy with no prompt to change him if he's done a pooh.

I'm at a loss and feel like a total failure, I've potty trained his sisters perfectly fine so why cant I do it?

please feel free to leave me a comment, email or tweet me i'd …
