I managed to pack my own bag, the kids bags and made them dinner in only 20 minutes as we set off to Stockholm this summer.
This is a record for me!
Needless to say there were necessary items that did not come with us, like body wash and shampoo, hence a mad rush for new products as soon as we landed.
I bought Bjork and Berries gorgeously scented Never Spring body wash .
Bjork and Berries describe themselves as an eco luxury beauty brand derived by Swedish nature and traditions.
The body wash contains no sulphates but a “mild preservatives”. You can get this brand in the UK and online.
I also got Estelle and Thilde shampoo and conditioner, another Swedish brand.
I find this shampoo keeps my hair clean for one day longer than other shampoos, it doesn’t lather greatly but certainly cleans well.
The conditioner first feels heavy when you put it in your hand but when you apply it to the hair it sort of disappears and it’s not heavy at all.
I can’t live without lipstick.
If I could only chose one product to use for the rest of my life it would be a lipstick and I’m particularly impressed with Ilia’s lipstick In My Room.
This is a repeat buy for me, I pray it’s never discontinued!
It’s the perfect nude.
I’m all for extra sparkle to my skin when going out and Living Luminizer by RMS does the trick.
It’s really subtle and sheer and very easy to use.
I apply it to my cheeks, bridge of the nose and just above the eye brows.
This pudding is perfect as a super healthy end of the meal, as a filling snack or as a satisfying breakfast.
Hope you like it!

I love my Zuko Quick Pop Maker.
I’m not good with planning ahead and if the kids/me want an ice lolly straight away that is now possible :)
I’m always trying to feed the kids nutrient dense foods and making ice lollies is just another opportunity to get the to eat more vegetables.
Hope you like it!
I make a smoothie for my kids every morning.
It’s the perfect way to hide vegetables they are not keen on like green leafy veg and avocado.
1-2 handfuls of berries
Stevia if needed
Hope you are having a great summer!
This video is about my skin care routine.
In this video I’ll show you have to make a really easy cream especially for eczema skin.
Of course no cream is going to remove the eczema, you need to deal with the underlying cause which can be very tricky.
When you take care of the eczema the skin should be kept moisturized and soft so it’s not getting extra itchy and that’s where a good cream is useful.
This simple homemade cream is easy to make and will in the long run be less expensive than lotions buy in the health store.
Also you can tailor the ingredients to suit your personal allergies.
Happy Friday everyone!
I’m more into recording videos than to write at the moment.
I don’t even write a script before I record I just have an idea and then I put the camera on a tripod and press record.
Maybe I should write some sort of script and stick to it :) you might understand after watching this video.
These are my 2 favourite raw pasta sauces to go with the raw spaghetti from the last video.
One is a raw pesto and the other a lighter tomato sauce.
I hope you like it!
A spiralizer is fun and a great way to get more raw vegetables into your diet.
It’s my favourite kitchen gadget at the moment, it’s extremely satisfying churning out the veg spaghetti and the kids love it.
