There are many reasons as to why I wanted to write a post about this particular week. As many of you will know, the UK celebrates Mother’s Day this Sunday- the adverts are on our screens, display windows are filled with reminders, but I can’t help feel torn about the holiday. I am excited as a mother and being able to spend the weekend with my own mum, but there is a part of me that wishes my mother-in-law, Iris were here. My heart also goes out to many people I know who have lost mothers and female figures in their lives, as it can’t be easy during this season.
I am going to make this week special by dedicating it to all the women who have had a positive impact on my life, for however long or short. My mum being the biggest impact will be getting a few surprises, and we are going to start off the weekend with a three course meal from a local pub in Suffolk (more details to follow!)
This week will also see a lot of pampering with the help from Nivea (items pictured were gifted), a brand super close to my family. My sister never goes without the Nivea daily face cream and there is always a plentiful supply of lip balms and bath products stocked at my mum’s house. I am taking over a few new products like the Rose & Argan Oil Lotion and the Hyaluron Cellular Filler. Sharing is caring, and we share a lot between my nan, mum, sister and I. Generations of love and care really resonates with the Nivea brand, and I am lucky to be able to have such a strong female surrounding still as I am reaching my 30’s.
What is your favourite Nivea product, and which lovely lady would you share it with? Let me know in the comments how you will be celebrating or remembering this week- whatever way, make it special.
Oh my word, can you believe what is going on outside this week? For us brits, the Beast from the East has hit home hard and we aren’t going anywhere until it passes! Well, we did manage to make it to the back garden to take some great photos in the snow. It’s time for my next Husband Takeover – The Blue Edit with The Idle Man.
The Idle Man (@Idle) is a fantastic men’s fashion retailer with hashtag #StyleMadeEasy. The concept is all about minimal yet modern looks and we were so up for working with the brand, that is my husband and I. Paul rarely throws any of his clothes away until they are threadbare, crumpled messes- socks especially! So we had a little wardrobe cleanse to see in the new year, and something blue decided to become the theme of this takeover.
This navy bomber jacket with black fleece collar detail works so well to protect Paul in the -4 degree chill.
I love how Paul looks in blue, it’s definitely his colour. Above he is wearing the Borg bomber jacket, classic long-sleeved t-shirt and slim fit stonewash jeans from The Idle Man.
There’s no problem with wearing blue head to toe as long as you choose different shades. Dark jacket with light jeans and vice versa. Now onto the second look:
We fell in love with this stonewash denim western jacket- it really works with Paul’s playful style and his inner childhood cowboy!
The Idle Man, stocks everything from jackets and jeans to trainers and t-shirts and is a real go-to destination for men. Alongside the online shop, The Idle Man Manual is a blog dedicated to offering style advice as well as stories and guides about music, grooming and lifestyle!
