Review: Staying fresh on the go with Canesfresh + Polaroid Camera Giveaway!

The Greenwich Mummy Blog - Canesfresh Review + Polaroid Giveaway

Thinking about summer; sunshine, ice creams and tan lines come to mind. These are the good memories. The not so good ones include over-crowding sweaty bodies on the tube, humid nights, dehydration and sunburnt skin. In London, it is seriously hard to stay as fresh as a daisy in summer but thanks to a few good products out there, it is definitely possible.

Now that it’s October the weather is much cooler and I don’t have to worry about sweaty bodies unless I’m heading to the gym. After a good workout, I am usually red-faced and dripping with sweat. I don’t mind – to me, it means I’ve actually done something. I always make sure I carry with me the essentials; deodorant for the underarms, a flannel to wipe of all that sweat and a bottle of water to rehydrate. As I live around the corner from the gym, I don’t bother to use their showers so it’s just a matter of quickly freshening myself up then heading home to get on with my mummy duties.

When the folks at Canesten asked if I wanted to try out their new intimate health products, I was very happy to. One of the things I lacked from my gym bag essentials was feminine hygiene wipes . These wipes aren’t just great for when it’s that time of the month, it’s actually a great item to have in your bag at all the times because then you can freshen up whenever you feel like it i.e. leaving straight from work to a party or in my case, after a sweaty workout. I received a few Canesfresh feminine hygiene products; an intimate gel wash, a mousse feminine wash and a pack of handy, travel-sized wipes. I was also given a lovely Polaroid instant camera to document my fun days out. 🙂 Continue reading “Review: Staying fresh on the go with Canesfresh + Polaroid Camera Giveaway!”

The Lost Smile Book Review & Giveaway

As a former volunteer Beanstalk reading helper, I understand how important it is to encourage young kids to read and enjoy reading. According to Beanstalk’s statistics, 63,000 of primary school children are unable to read at the expected level by the time they leave school – this is frightening.

LO loves to read and I think this is due to me reading to him since he was born. I read him a bedtime story every night and we still enjoy a story every night now. We also incorporate in a few bedtime songs to help him wind down better and he loves it. Continue reading “The Lost Smile Book Review & Giveaway”
