Soft As A Baby’s Bottom

Kiehls Rosa Arctica

All this mothering has left a definite mark on my sensitive skin.  Up late and throughout the night…early mornings…dehydrated from lack of time to care for myself and little time left to pamper my skin has made me look older then I am.  One long look in the mirror during a brief five minute break (hiding actually in the bathroom) led me to the conclusion that it was time to take care of myself…and my aging skin.  I may feel tired and look like I partied all night, but there must be a miracle cream that will hide all that…right….?  I put myself on a strict diet of 1 whole extra hour of sleep a night, drank heaps more water and started using a brilliant new face cream to start working on all my fine lines, wrinkles and definite lack of glow.  Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica Cream is a gorgeous new line that uses a rare resurrection flower known for its hydrating properties.  I’ve been using it for about a month and my skin does feel firmer, less dry and does in fact glow at times if we do say so ourself.  It’s super thick, and works best if you warm a small amount up first before rubbing it into your skin. I’m a huge fan of Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil too, and when used with the Rosa Arctica line, it makes my almost middle aged skin look less 40-ish and way more 30-ish.  I feel pampered and indulgent and it only takes this busy momma a few extra minutes, while hiding from the family in the bathroom.  I’m still tired…and I still get up at all hours, but my skin looks hydrated, rested and more firm. Miracles do happen.


Finally…We Have A Nanny

Posted on


We do have a nanny…not the traditional type, but perhaps one even better.  It’s a coveted Toy Nanny from the smart mom’s at 2 Red Hens.  They have created a circular blanket with mesh pockets and a soft center playmat that pulls into a stylish toy tote that looks fabulous and provides tons of time saving function.  The Toy Nanny makes life easier, tidier, less stressful and heaps more hip & stylish.  Love the vintage look of the designs and the water proof resistant backing ( no need to cry over the milk that will get spilled mamma!).  It has made cleanup time after a playdate super easy and more convenient as the straps cinch and you just throw the bag over your shoulder.  The mesh pockets allow your child to see just what they have available to play with, and it’s all within their reach.  Celeb moms who are as lucky as we are to have some 2 Red Hens baby gear are Sarah Michelle Geller and Tiffani Thiessen and Ali Laundry.  Smart mommies thinking alike.  Keep up to date with 2 Red Hens on their facebook page…you’ll be the first to know what’s new.

We have one Toy Nanny to give away to a lucky reader!  Leave a comment on this review telling us your favorite Toy Nanny Design.  Simple as that!  Contest ends Feb 14th.
