There is a song in everything

I’m sure everyone has seen or even had a difficult moment with a toddler where a deadline was looming and said toddler wanted hugs and your full attention.

This morning this is exactly what happened. Little Charlie was keen on getting hugs when I really needed to iron Marty’s shirt so he could go to work. As you can guess one can’t quickly, easily or even safely hold a toddler and iron.

So I dug deep searching for a little creativity and thought up a song to sing him to distract and make it possible.

This is what I came up with and once again the song worked.

“Iron iron iron the clothes,
Watch the crinkles go.
Watch watch watch along,
Watch and you will see.”

So my fun tip for the day (other than to be more organised) is to make things fun by singing songs.

“Sing sing sing a song,
Sing it happily
Sing sing sing along
Sing and you will see”

Day 19 – Flab2Fab February

Well some how life got crazy and I haven’t been on to blog. We are up to day 19 of our challenge, a day of rest.

My biggest hurdle to keeping on track is remembering to actually JFDI!

So I will part with 2 tips:

1. Pop reminders into your phone for a set time.

2. Do NOT exercise after moisturizing your feet. It is bad for your health 😉

Day 4 – Flab2Fab Challenge

So I just smashed Day 4 – have you?

Here is a cute pic of my little Bear trying to help me get strong. Every time I tried to day he climbed on my back to give me a big hug! *Bless*

DIY Face Scrub

Not long ago my Mummy group and I were chatting about face products and my gorgeous friend recommended this homemade face scrub on this blog. I finally got around to buying olive oil and making it tonight.
It is truly BLISS. I’m loving how beautiful my skin feels right now. If you are in a DIY skincare mood then I highly recommend it.

Here is what you need to make it:
-A small container to keep it in
-Two tablespoons of sugar (I only have raw coffee or caster sugar so I used caster sugar)
-Two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
-A tiny tiny drop of vanilla essence (for the smell)
All you have to do is mix it up, wet your face and scrub away. Rinse and enjoy super soft skin.
Next time (since I am super obsessed with coconut oil atm) I will try it with coconut oil instead of olive oil. Here is a link on using coconut oil for gorgeous skin.
 
Enjoy. xxx
