If you’ve visited Southampton over the Summer of 2016, you’ll have struggled to miss the many zebras hiding around the town.

Trying to save money is something I know lots of families are trying to do, especially on those essential purchases! Saving money on essentials, leaves a little extra for those treats! A few years ago I started to use coupons when I did our weekly shop, at first friends laughed that I’d be saving small amounts on a loaf of bread or cat food, but when I added up the saving over a month – it came to quite a decent total! The money I saved went towards other essential purchases, like clothes, and I was delighted that after a few months the money we’d saved added up to a decent family treat! Continue reading →
I have a love/hate relationship with September. On one hand it is a new start, the start of a new school year and a new season. I love watching the changing colours from bright summer, to warm Autumnal colours which I really adore, nature really is clever. It’s like it takes all the warmth of summer and spreads it across leaves to give you one last memory of summer before wiping it away to make way for Winter.

Do you ever feel like you have an endless shopping list? New school shoes, new uniform, new trainers, sofa, dog bed..the list goes on. With so many things we need to buy, things we want can get forgotten as who has the spare money to buy those things too? I love shopping, and having children hasn’t really changed that, I have just changed the way I shop. I shop online more, and I try to grab a good deal whenever I see one!

Sophie la girafe skincare products are gentle enough for the whole family, while aimed at babies and young children, I have to confess that I adore their natural baby oil and indulgent body lotion. The entire range is Ecocert certified Organic, which means the products contain at least 95% natural products, and absolutely no parabens. The Ecocert label, means you can be sure that it contains no harsh chemicals, and instead contains fabulous natural ingredients.
We’ve been using Sophie la girafe products since Yo was born, and we love the gentle natural fragrance – described by my 5-year-old as “a comforting, gentle almost sweet smell”. The children and I use Sophie la girafe Hair and Body Wash, it works well as a shower gel, or as a gentle bath foam – think super soft bubbles! A little bit, goes a long way and it only foams lightly, so it’s easy to rinse off even when applying with a natural sponge!
The body lotion is wonderful for calming tired children pre-bedtime, and we have a routine where they pop some on their legs and elbows every night before climbing into pyjamas! I struggle with very dry skin, which is often quite sore especially in the winter months, and I’ve discovered that Sophie La Girafe Body lotion, not only helps keep my dry skin under control, it also doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.
Next week, it’s #OrganicBeautyWeek, and Sophie La Girafe have offered one of my readers the chance to win a wonderful Sophie La Girafe gift set to celebrate!
The set contains a bottle of the marvellous Sophie La Girafe Hair and Body Wash, and a Sophie La Girafe natural bristle brush, it would make a wonderful gift, or be a wonderful treat to keep for your little one! To enter follow the steps on the rafflecopter widget below;
