Life Lately

I thought I’d take time to reflect on my life lately and how much it’s changed in the last 6 months.

I had a baby

The obvious one! In September I had my first baby; a daughter called Freya and I absolutely love being a Mum. I didn’t really see myself as the maternal type and everyone at work joked that I had no sympathy bones but I think I’ve changed a lot whilst still retaining my character.

I became an Ambassador for Origins

This was super exciting as it started happening before I had Freya and by the time she arrived, I was arranging my first training sessions. Skincare has always been my first love when it comes to my blogging and when this opportunity came along, I was up for the task.

I planned my first event

As part of my role as an ambassador, I will be running 4 events during the year. So far I’ve successfully planned and ran one before Christmas, and now I’m in the midst of putting my guest list together for the next one in February.

I made mum friends

This might sound like something small, but its one that I’m incredibly proud of. I was really worried about making friends but I have found a wonderful bunch of ladies that I know I can talk to about all my mum worries.

“Googling Stuff”

This is one my husband would laugh at as I never understood it before. Now that I have some spare time when Freya is napping during the day, I find myself coming across things like wholesale T-shirt printing. It’s amazing what you can learn about when browsing the web but it’s far better than googling baby stuff which can sometimes lead you down a black hole.

A Pamper Gift Guide Part II

Happy Saturday and welcome to Part II of my pamper gift guide series and today’s brand feature is Origins.

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen that I am an Origins Ambassador which is only something I recently started doing. This post is in no way an affiliated post and links are therefore not affiliated either, I’ve just decided to share some of their fantastic gift sets in a handy post.

The Black Friday Set

This is by far my standout set from the brand and so much so that I’ve asked for it as a gift this year for Christmas. This set contains 3 full size products meaning the value is £105 and costs you and amazing £42. An Absolute must have for the Origins fan in your life.

An Origins Haul

If you saw my Instagram Stories earlier in the week, you will have seen me talking about Origins Skincare. This is a brand I discovered back in August when I attended a collaboration event between Origins and Em Sheldon in their new store in York.

I fell in love with the products after testing out a few samples ones and when a family member gifted me a voucher as a gift for recently bringing a child into the world, I didn’t waste any time in placing an order online.
