Mammy Diaries: Johnson’s Top to Toe Baby Bath

The Style Fairy tests JOHNSON’S® TOP-TO-TOE® Baby Bath #ad

Hey ladies

So recently I was asked by Johnson & Johnson to take part in a really fun and interesting campaign they are running with their Johnson’s Top to Toe Baby Bath. You can check out the full video I did here:

I was asked to run a small experiment comparing Johnson’s Top to Toe Baby Bath with regular baby soap and the results were really interesting. I placed a fresh rose in each of the jars; one jar containing the Johnson’s Baby Bath (mixed with demineralised water) and one containing the baby soap (also with demineralised water) .

After 24 hours I took the roses out from the jars and the difference in how the two roses faired out was crazy. The rose that was in the Johnson’s Top To Toe Baby Bath was still perfectly intact, still bright, petals looked and felt fine and in general just looked normal. Where as the rose that has been soaking in the baby soap was not nearly in as good condition; it had wilted significantly, it was faded and white in patches and it looked like it was rotting in the centre; check out my video to see exactly what I mean.

It certainly really made me think of the importance of what I use on Anabelle Ivy’s skin. I have always, from day one, been very careful about what I use on her skin, both in the bath and any creams or lotions used post bath. Baby’s skin is so delicate and soft and I’m so conscious of what I use on her skin. In fact, baby’s skin is up to 30% thinner than adult skin which is why it leaves it so much more vulnerable.

Bath time is a huge part of our routine, although now she is getting so much bigger it is getting a lot more messy… and fun!! I’m almost always soaked after all her splashing an jumping around. She loves it though and I always find she sleeps so much better after a bath. Toys are a must have in our house, otherwise she gets bored after 10 seconds and starts trying to leap out!

After the bath we keep the routine the same, into her jammies, then its story time with her favourite bed time book (Goodnight Moon) and her last bottle of the day in her nursery. I always keep the lights dimmed low and talk nicely and calmly to her, she is so hyper during the day that I think this routine helps cal her after a hectic day. Last but certainly not least her Sleepytot Comforter, she just gets this at nap time and bed time and associates this magic bunny with sleep – definitely one of my best buys.

Occasion Wear with Littlewoods Ireland

Hey ladies

It’s that time of year and occasion wear is top of everyone’s list right now. Occasion wear is by far the most requested blog post; we get so many emails every day asking for ideas and inspiration for weddings, the races, communion and confirmation.

img_4367

So with that in mind, I am delighted to say I have teamed up with Littlewoods Ireland to bring you my top Occasion Wear picks from their current collection. They have so much on offer and so many amazing brands to choose from including the likes of Coast, Ted Baker, Little Mistress and Miss Selfridge to name just a few, so trust me you won’t be disappointed!

In fact, I was only supposed to wear one look for this photoshoot but I fell in love with both and I couldn’t choose between them! Both the looks I am wearing here are head-to-toe from the V By Very range available exclusively at Littlewoods Ireland. On top of the two looks I’ve worn here, I’ve styled 5 more looks top-to-toe so hopefully you’ll get some ideas and inspiration.

LOOK 1 

I love this look, I am a big fan of opting for skirt and top for occasion wear as you can wear both pieces again separately – This embellished top is a great fit and would be fab worn again with high waisted trousers. Plus I’m obsessed with this velvet pleated skirt, such a flattering fit on. This entire look head-to-toe comes in at under €150!!

LOOK 2

The moment I saw this stunning blue lace dress I completely fell in love with it. I adore the shape and style… and the sleeves… did I mention the sleeves? Stunning detail on it. This versatile clutch was the perfect accessory and these elegant nude heels (which have beautiful pearl detail on the back) really finish the look.
