HOT MUMMAS | Clarins 6 hour Lipsticks

Joli Rouge, for Joli mums....

Doesn't it make you feel good with the right 'pop' of colour?
My go-to hue is a spicy hot orange, erring on red, and below, im testing our Clarins Orange Fizz.

What's your personal sexiest shade?

Clarins have reformulated and revamped Joli Rouge, and with 25 sizzling shades - it'll guarantee you'll find your perfect match.

The rich texture offers a 6-HR continuous moisture AND it has the scent of red berries - which I love!

COOL BUBBAS | Shoes, Shoes, Shoes

I don't buy myself a pair every month, but I feel like do for my little one... Because he hides or throws them.

I guess an average high street shoe for us ladies costs around £30, so why does a minuscule baby pair cost the same?
Clunky clarks, trendy Toms, swanky Converse or shiny wellies - they're all so costly, right?

Yesterday I begrudgingly waltzed into Office, don't get me wrong, I LOVE Office Shoes but it's painful buying the same pair over and over again because he's a) grown out of them super fast and b) thrown one of the blighters!

Anyone else experience this?

I longingly looked at the converse, but the faffing and laces puts me off.
Then, for something different, I spied a pair of New Balance chunky trainers, but wasn't entirely sold...
Then, fortuitously saw a pair of Puma Suede tucked away as she teetered off. 
The reason so lucky as they were £15 in comparison to the trainers at almost £30 - they weren't highlighted as in the sale. But im guessing they were. Bargain!

So, I just thought I'd let you lovely mummies know - they're trendier than Clarks, a nice solid sole and hard-wearing. If you look online at Office there's lots of lovely colourways to be had.

COOL BUBBAS I Ashlyn's Farm Essex

I've often spied people posting on Facebook about a local organic farm, and how wonderful their fry-ups are - that alone whet my appetite.

On one miserable Monday, I decided last minute to do a bit of research and check out all of the fuss.

Well, I was suitably impressed.

A soft play area - which was clean, fun, and you can enjoy food and drink whilst the little ones go wild (instead of chasing their tails).

Two different shaded play areas, plus a wooden ship-esque area and many ride-on toys dotted about.

The farm itself is small - but just right. Rabbits, goats, alpacas, meerkats, ride-on tractors - it's got all that you want from a farm.
My son got so excited and squealed with delight at how close he was to all the animals.

Monkeying around 

In the lovely restaurant the staff couldn't be more attentive, Albie was presented with a box of toys to play with whilst he waited for his grub - a great touch.

Enjoying Lunch and all the attention

Lunch for me was fish cakes, why on earth didn't I have meat, because immediately I had food envy!

My son had breaded chicken goujons and fries with a side of beans - given he's 18-months he polished the lot off.

Pulled Pork Burger with 'Slaw at £9.95 with fries

In the soft play area - it's a different price, you pay separately for the soft play/farm but a deal for both for 2 adults and 1 child is £11 - you can't complain (a £3.50 saving on the normal entry). There's a few slides, a small under 3 area with giant lego, ball pit, I can't explain how knackered I got following my son in the older bit - excellent exercise!

Otherwise adults are free for soft play, and it's just the kiddy you pay for.

Everything is so good - I looked into hiring for his 2nd birthday (then saw the prices and it put me off!)

The ONLY gripe I have is the price of a tea, or drink in the soft play - it's atrocious. A cup of tea at £1.75 for literally a cup, not even a mug - come on guys, sort it out - you're doing SO well, a tea bag and some hot water - surely you can half the price!

It's such a great day out - and best of all there is an organic farm shop with fresh eggs, fresh meat, vegan, health food, all sorts of health-concscious virtuous goodies to chow-down on.

Definitely worth a visit.

Ashlyn's Farm Epping, Essex

From £3.00 for children for Farm Trail and Soft Play.
