Are you a mommy to a toddler? A new mommy or a mommy-to-be? If yes, then you have stumbled upon the correct page. Living in Cambridge has made me more eco-friendly and I am always looking for gifts to give to the little people in my life that can be used and sustained in the long run.  There is nothing more annoying than getting a party bag at a children’s birthday party which is filled with small bits of rubbish that gets thrown in the bin or is too hazardous (why do they make such stuff?).

I recently came across this page of beautiful hand-made crochet Amigurumi items. For all those who are wondering what Amigurumi is, it is a Japanese art form that covers the beautiful trend of crocheting stuffed dolls, animals or even inanimate objects.  I could not resist myself and ordered lot’s of items from Yenieta who is based in Mumbai, India and hand crochets all the items herself as she is so passionate about the art.

The items are not only limited to children’s toys, she also makes hair clips for girls, lunch boxes for school kids, table runners, coasters and many more items.

I can definitely vouch that the Peppa Pig, unicorn and bookmark I received from her to give as gifts were far from disappointment!! Sometimes items on a website can be misleading and look different to when you receive them, but not with these.

Shipping was speedy and I thought they make for a great return gift at a children’s party, they are great for stuffing in an advent calendar (Christmas shopping can never be too early!) or they can even be given at a christening/birth announcement.

Get in touch with Yenieta on Whatsapp for further queries on 0091-98204-88391; or

she is on Facebook as Cyryeni creations.

Beauty 101

As a working woman it is not always easy to find time to have a beauty regimen.  With some trial and error,  I have now found the products that suit my skin and the regime I need to stick to, to keep my skin glowing.

If you use a lot of make up, the Kiehl’s midnight recovery botanical cleansing oil is great.  I use this every night to remove all the make up and grime off my face and give my face a quick wash with cold water just after that. The skin also needs nourishment other than the food we put into our body, I would advise using the Kiehl’s night repair serum to nourish the face.  Take two drops in your hand and apply gently on your face. I then moisturise my face with their Skin renewing cream.  The skin renewing cream has manuka honey which gives the face a glow and also keeps it will moisturised for wintry dry days.

Off late, I have become very particular about everything I use on my skin. Therefore, why should it be any different for my hair.  I changed to Kiehl’s Amino Acid shampoo earlier in 2017.  The shampoo is paraben and sulphite free and suitable to all hair types.  It has done great for my hair that was falling rapidly with the rough water we have in the UK.

 

I hope you found this article useful.  I would love to hear your comments.

A Sp(a)ctacular Day

It’s not often that I get time to go to the spa, but when I do it is indeed a spa-ctaclar day.

The glassworks spa in Cambridge is a lovely spot to relax and enjoy. You can sit in the Jacuzzi and watch the world go by, enjoy the views of river Cam and watch the many punters on the river crashing into the walls!

The spa also has facilities such as a steam and sauna room. Many treatments to choose from and if you are lucky you may get some Elemis sample size products.

Beautiful to watch the river cam and relax in the jacuzzi

All things Cambridge

In my first blog post I am going to write about one of my favourite cafe’s in Cambridge, UK.  Espresso Library, situated on East Road in Cambridge was one of the first cafe’s that started serving matcha latte in historic Cambridge.  When I heard that, I had to go try it out – and find out all the hype behind matcha latte.  If you have a peculiar taste for bitter things then matcha latte will not disappoint.
