HOW TO FIRM UP WITH CLARINS // MY NUMBER 1 PRODUCTS FOR FIRMING UP POST BABY

Since having two kids, and for those of you following me on Instagram will know that I have struggled with saggy and loose skin especially on my tummy. I thank god never suffered from stretch marks but my skin just didn't bounce back like it did after having my first. So i figured I needed to do something about it..





Losing post baby weight has never been a real issue for me either and found that once I stopped breastfeeding the weight just dropped off me. But thats exactly what it did - it just dropped off - POOF! suddenly I was back to size 8 with minimal exercise and absolutely no dieting. I know what you are gonna say, "whats the problem then?" Well... What that has meant is that my skin seems to have lost its firmness and I am horrified with all this 'extra lose skin' on my tummy and my boobs just shrank like little deflated and dried prunes. I tried everything and would spend hours a week rubbing oil into my tummy, I used BioOil which is actually really fantastic and I tried Nivea Q10 Firming Lotion but again it didn't really give me the results I wanted.


While I cannot swear that there has been an instant fix, I know that since using these selection of products from Clarins I have seen a noticeable difference in my tummy and my skin seems firmer and less saggy. I have also been using the Clarins Body Oil and have included a link for it below but not pictured as managed to leave it behind on holiday. It smells divine and is not too oily either.

Everyone has different products that they swear by and although I am no beauty or skincare expert I feel like I should share the products that have worked for me - they may work for you too.





Would love to hear if anyone has some miracle products that they swear by for us mummas battling the war against post baby bods??? ..





 In the meantime, if you have a spare hour this evening, try out my homemade DIY Coconut Oil + Coffee Scrub. It works wonders to give you back that glow. Run a bath, light some candles, soak your tired aching bod  and scrub this delicious mixture all over.

  2. Anyway, May's joint chief of staff, Fiona Hill, was so outraged by Morgan's fashion critique that she pettily disinvited that woman from 10 Downing Street, so there! The leather worm then turned further for Morgan when it was pointed out that her Mulberry handbag cost almost exactly the same as moncler outlet May's trousers. Morgan insisted the bag was a gift, because expensive stuff is totally fine as long as you don't pay for it, apparently. But this in itself raised several questions, not least, Who is giving Nicky Morgan £950 cheap polo ralph lauren? Someone in Loughborough market, no doubt, out of gratitude for her longstanding policy of being so condescendingly real to them. So the first thing to say, obviously, is, again, tchuh women! The sight of the second woman prime minister and the former secretary of state for education spatting away about toms outlet uk trousers and handbags seems pretty much the right way to end a year marked by the resurgence of misogyny in western politics. That's right, ladies: you keep behaving like the worst possible stereotypes of women, and don't let all that leather slow you down. That'll show em.
