Next week we are celebrating the 5th year of National Feet Week which takes place from 17th to 23rd April. This is to encourage people of all ages to prioritise foot health and get any issues checked. Choosing to ignore common foot complaints can ultimately lead to serious problems and can affect overall health and well-being.
This year we are celebrating the 4th year of National Feet Week which takes place from 7th to 13th March. This is to encourage everyone to prioritise their foot health and get any issues checked. Many people choose to ignore common foot complaints rather than go see an expert. This can ultimately lead to conditions becoming more serious and affecting overall health and well being.
The Swiss Roll is one of my all-time favourite cakes and I usually buy them from the Chinatown supermarket or bakery shop! The recipe that I love is where the sponge is always very light and thick which makes it so tasty. Since earlier this year, I have been trying different recipes, watching YouTube channels for inspiration and after a few attempts, I think I have found a great recipe that bakes a great sponge.
I first came across Viridian when I was at a Blogger Christmas event and from there I learnt that Viridian is committed to the use of 100% active ingredients. The company uses pure capsules, powders and liquids to avoid the use of all the nasties needed to make tablets and chewables. From the fields where much of their ingredients are grown through to the recycling bank where the glass bottles are collected, they wish to follow the ethical principle of ‘care for others as we care for ourselves’.
A few months ago at Britmums Live, I met the PR company for Aveeno who told us about their products and new book – The Dry-ventures of Ellie & Eddie. We are no strangers to Aveeno as Mr K has been using Aveeno since he was three years old and he is on a regular prescription for all the Aveeno products.
Aveeno keeps his skin moisturised to reduce the frequency of flare-ups. The AVEENO® range for dry, sensitive skin is designed to help in the management of this challenging skin condition. AVEENO® products containing Colloidal Oatmeal are clinically proven to help restore the epidermal barrier (the top layer of skin) leaving skin feeling soft and comfortable. Oats have long been known for their soothing and anti-irritant properties, with oat proteins leaving a protective barrier on the skin which prevents water loss and maintains moisture.
Determining what you can and cannot use baby’s skin and their hair is always worrying for first time parents. To help new parents looking for peace of mind the JOHNSON’S® Baby brand has created FIRST TOUCH™, a brand new fragrance-free range developed for newborns that includes everything new parents need to cleanse and protect their baby’s delicate skin from top to toe.
Newborn skin is very delicate and a study of 540 first-time mums shown that almost two thirds (62%) said their baby experienced dry or sensitive skin, over half (51%) experienced redness or a rash, and almost a quarter (24%) suffered from cradle cap or dandruff. Newborn skin is around a third thinner than adult skin and loses moisture quicker, making them more susceptible to dryness and irritation and in need of extra care to protect their skin’s natural defences.
The sun is finally out! But don’t forget to get your sun cream too! Our school have asked us parents to apply sun cream to children before sending them to school. But you normally have to reapply sun cream regularly for it to be fully effective.
Last month, I read about HealGel Eye over at The Brick Castle and was amazed with her results. Therefore I was so pleased when I was contacted by HealGel to try out their amazing products too. Besides HealGel Eye, they also have HealGel Face which helps keeps skin calm, hydrated and revitalised. If you like to know more, do pop over to Mummy of Two as she had reviewed it.

Since birth, both of my children have suffered from eczema. Their skin on the inside of their joints like elbow, knee and armpits have suffered from inflammation and sore skin. We have been to see various skin specialist nurses and doctors. Each time, they offer to change to different drugs and none of the creams have worked for them. I have constantly been on the lookout for alternatives solutions, including changing my washing powder.
