For James, this Christmas, rather than Play station 4 games he’s upgraded his wants to help with being a new parent! One of his wants is to smell nice for me when we get 5 minutes of adult time and he’s loving some of the Mens perfume by L ‘ Occitane at the moment. Due to the lack of sleep ( even though he does a handful of night feeds every now and then, an espresso making pot would go down a treat for him on those mornings when he needs that extra kick, and if the nights are really bad, I know James uses headphones and music to down out some of Amelia’s feeding noises at 2am, so I’m also thinking some noise cancelling headphones. Lastly, I know he’s not loving work as it’s super cold in the office and he comes home ratty and uncomfortable, so a lovely new cashmere jumper might just do the trick to not only keep him warm but keep him feeling comfy at work.
For me, with the weather so cold and my hormones all over the shop, my skin is so dry and one product I’m dying to try is the Origins drink up intensive overnight mask, I’ve heard such great things about it and with all the running around I’m doing, I could do with a pamper sessh. To go along side said session of pampering, I’m seeing everyone going crazy for these mermaid tail blankets and I can see why if I get to be snuggled on the couch with Amelia AND look like a mermaid. WINNING. I always like to light a candle and my favourite ones at the moment are Yankee candles, specifically the Pain au raisin one, It’s SO sweet and I love how the bedroom smells like a bakery! Lastly for me, with everyone wanting to pop in, there are times when I want to get glammed up but there just isn’t enough time so I’ve been loving just popping on some false lashes like these Ardell Wispies.
What will help you get through your first Christmas with a little one?
