Today’s Blogmas topic is things I can’t live without. Until I tried to narrow this down, I had no idea how many things I honestly felt I need (consumer driven little beast that I am) but here is my top 5.
This is a recent discovery but I love it so very very much. We’ve been using Brauers Paw Paw on H’s nappy rash for quite some time, but I just found out they do the most beautiful lip balms with a bit of sparkle. Petrochemical free and sits so lightly, never feels oily or greasy.
Okay this is less one for me and more one for H – but seriously these things have saved my sanity on a number of occasions. It’s so easy to shove a couple bags in your handbag when you are going out just to stop a hangry baby from having a tantrum. Seriously trust me, no-one wants to see H have a hangry baby tantrum. It is not pretty guys.
I was a bit of a hold out on the Kindle, I insisted that books were far superior. I snobbishly sniffed at these electronic readers thinking they couldn’t possibly be anywhere near as good. And then I went away for work for three and a half weeks and had to take a truly ridiculous amount of books so I could read every night while I was away. I fell short and had to buy more at the airport and then ran out halfway through the flight home. So the e-reader convert was born. I still have paper copies of my favourite books that I read over and over again, but I am a ridiculously large consumer of crappy chick lit so it’s definitely cut down on the amount of books we have to store that I will only ever read once.
This is another Lush product that my darling husband has co-opted and now uses just as much as me. It’s got a great scent (not unlike a Sunday roast) and almonds to gently exfoliate. I use it nightly and follow up with a spritz of tea tree water and it leaves my skin feeling beautiful and clean.
I love love love love this! It’s totally saved me on a few occasions when I was out and about for site visits and had no powerpoint or laptop to charge my phone in. The AllNighter size will power one device fully but there are larger and smaller sizes available.
