NYX Cosmic Metals Shadow Pallette: Review + Swatches

Okay, Autumn is here, and I am LIVING for the NYX Comic Metals line. Specifically, their Cosmic Metals Shadow Palette. The eyeshadow colours are lovely, the product itself is a powder but feels almost creamy. It’s easy to blend, and I frequently use it in conjunction with the NYX Lingerie palette. To be honest, I’ve…

Etude House Sunprise Sunscreen SPF 50+ {Review}

I sweat. I sweat a lot. It's why makeup in the summer has almost always been a no-go for me. It's also why I don't look forward to summer. Sweating profusely on your face isn't cute. Growing up in California, I can vividly remember giving up on wearing makeup during the hot days of summer.…

Turning 2 with the Gruffalo! {Chessington Adventures}

This April, my little man hit another milestone, turning age 2. I can’t truly express what a joyous moment it is for us as parents to see him growing into his own person. Last year, I went all out with planning a rainbow themed birthday bash for him. This year, we decided to keep it…

Tutti Bambini’s Barcelona Nursery Furniture: Transitioning from Cot-Bed to Cot!

So kiddo has been climbing in and out of his cotbed, and it’s been causing him a bit of bruising (obviously), so as it was a hazard, we decided to take the sides down. From the photos, the transition seems pretty easy, but in actuality, it took us about an hour to figure it out (granted, we…

Business Review: Osteopathy in Colchester – the bad, the worst, and the absolute best. 

This is a rather long story, but it’s worthwhile if you’re searching for an expert back cracker! When I first moved to England from California, I searched for a chiropractor to continue my care. I was really confused because the term “osteopath” was widely used, and I was unaccustomed to hearing the terminology. Turns out…

Jungle Adventure: Surrounded by Wild Animals – Err, Cute Kids? {Soft Play Centre Review}

This past weekend, we headed toward Stanway’s famously clean and well-lit indoor soft play area, Jungle Adventure. Whoah, was it an adventure, alright! Lots of high energy kids running about everywhere. Slides, ropes, climbing areas,  while all exhausted parents gave each other equally exhausted looks of “in solidarity” and allowed our kiddos to commence exhausting…

My 30th in Albufeira: A Holiday in Portugal with a Toddler!

During the third week of October, Suraj, Savya and I travelled to Algarve, Portugal. Suraj insisted we celebrate by 30th birthday in some way. We booked last minute (like, 3 days in advance) through Expedia and flew via RyanAir. We had warm weather and stayed at an all-inclusive resort called Hotel São Rafael Suites.  Savya…

Product Review: Nūby’s SureGrip Miracle Mat & Plate

Babies and Toddlers instinctively enjoy fine tuning their own motor skills by learning to eat and drink by themselves. When that happens, it’s great! It means that they are learning and growing. But it also commences a search for bowls and plates they can’t flip. There’s enough cleaning required without adding your kid’s meals on…
