The summer is flying by and my family & I have been having a great time, with barbeques, days out and trips to the park. The highlight of our summer has to be the Just So Festival, where we spent three days dressing up as foxes, pirates and monsters, training to be cowboys, building rockets and Gruffalo hunting. What an amazing, magical weekend, accurately described by a friend of mine as “parenting utopia”!
It goes without saying that we all have to be careful with our children’s skin in the sun. My eldest, Luca has such sensitive skin that this is not an easy task. We must have spent hundreds of pounds on children’s sun creams over the past few years, before eventually finding a regime that doesn’t cause a nasty reaction. This summer, we have been diligently covering Luca in our new ‘Good Natured Baby Lotion’ (available soon!) all over, before applying ‘The Sun Mousse’. This seems to do the trick.
Our new products are almost ready to go and we are so excited! We particularly love the three rich, velvety body butters we have developed; for mums-to-be, new mums, and an unscented butter for mother and baby. In our house, we have been getting through bucket-loads of these! I am particularly grateful to the wonderful Faye at Telling Stories for her branding & packaging design. Our new labels look fab & we can’t wait to show them to you! (Have a look at their website – they are amazing!)
Finally, we are proud to tell you about our latest nomination for a Mumpreneur UK award. Now in its fifth year, these are the first national awards dedicated solely to mums in business. Our website has already received a Bronze award and we now have to wait until the end of August to see if we have made the finals for one of the four categories for which we have been nominated. Wish us luck!
