Sunny days are rare in the UK so when the sun does decide to shine and the temperature matches how gloriously bright it is, I have to get outside and soak it all up. Spring time this year is much simpler for me than years gone by. I used to cover myself in all the spring pastels, trying to perfect that classic spring look. Now I have a baby I simply don't have the time, and so instead I reach for the essentials, the products that'll make getting ready easy whilst still making me feel and look good.

We're big foodies in the Tattooed Tealady house and one thing I am trying to do more is pick healthier ingredients to make healthier meals for us as a family. It won't be long until we start our baby led weaning journey with Willow and I really want us to have a better diet when that time comes, so that she is given a varied, nutritious and healthy diet.

Cleansing balms are undoubtedly one of the most popular ways to cleanse, with brands of all budgets bringing out their own cleansing balms in the hopes of being the next cult must-have. I'm a big fan of cleansing balms myself, finding them more luxurious in texture and scent, nicer to massage into skin (as well as making you take the time to massage them in so that you properly cleanse your skin), as well as being more effective for me than foams, creams or lotions in removing makeup, dirt and impurities from my skin.

I think it's safe to say when you find out you're pregnant, one of the first things you picture yourself doing is taking your baby out in their pram, introducing them to the big world outside. I'll never forget the first time I took Willow out on my own, going to meet her daddy after work and showing her off to his colleagues who wanted to see our beautiful little girl. I felt proud as punch, with my whole world in our gorgeous, bright and colourful pushchair.

Their oils are my favourite, I'm a fan of their toners, their moisturisers are pretty darn lovely and they have the most impressive range of eye creams you will ever come across. I'm a big fan, there's no denying that, so you can imagine how excited I was when the two new products popped through my door; introducing Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque and the Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energising Radiance Masque.

When we did have the eczema confirmed, the Health Visitor and GP were super impressed with how I had been managing her eczema with the products I'll be featuring in this post, and told me there was no need to use anything else and only to take her back to the GP if it got worse. The products we use keep her eczema at bay wonderfully, so much so you wouldn't know she even had it! It's by using these products morning and evening that we are able to keep her skin happy, in turn making her more comfortable and happy, and for us this little routine works absolute wonders.

There's something about marbled products that I simply can't resist. I just love the way they look, and the Pur Minerals Universal Marble Powders don't disappoint. They are simply beautiful. Of course, when it comes to makeup you need more than something that just looks nice, you need a product that'll perform, that'll meet your expectations, a product that'll be worth the splurge.

On Saturday I popped into Nottingham for my first solo-mama shopping trip since Willow was born, getting some essentials that we don't have in my local town and of course, visiting some of my favourite baby shops to treat Willow. Whilst there I was kindly invited to check out Tortilla, a trendy destination for delicious burritos and tacos.
