How to get out the door on time with a baby on your hip

February 26, 2015

I hate being late, it makes me feel sick and guilty, anxious and upset. So when Miss S arrived a new level of army like precision organisation was required to get out the door on time. When I first left the house with her I was panicked, what if I needed something and what if she cried but over time we got our rhythm and now we love to get out and about together.

Here is my How to arrive on time guide

  • Always have a fully stocked nappy bag. When I arrive home from an outing, I restock the nappy bag, nothing worse than being caught out. Nappies, wipes, spare outfits and bibs
  • Create a routine for leaving the house that suits you and bub. 
  •  For my daughter and I, I get ready while she plays, and watches me,then I change her, dress her and she has a bottle if necessary, Then we hit the road...
  • Pack toys, food, bottles (or breast feeding necessities) , forgetting these always leads to panic. Before I get ready I mix a bottle and pack 3 spares. 
Don't stress, babies are seriously the most unpredictable critters and they need us so roll with the punches and enjoy that they need you.... one day they wont!

What are your tips for getting out the door with a little one? x

Priming Fantastic - Australis Primer

All About That Base

because its all about that base, base, base....

now the fun and giggly part is over lets get serious, because its a crime to not prime.

I love the new Blemish Buster Primer

What they say.

Primer Blemish Buster 30g

Prime & Finish

Primer Blemish Buster 30g

What is it?
An acne fighting primer to fight and soothe redness. Moisturise and hydrate your skin before your foundation, while also healing and soothing acne and other blemishes.
Why we love it
Contains Argan oil to promote soft skin, and evening primrose oil to heal and soothe.

What I say

Its like a fresh hit of icey water. I apply this after I have moisturized and it leaves my skin looking tighter and less red. It gives a smooth canvas to apply the foundation too!! Win/Win!!

Just make sure you wait for it to set, (just a few seconds, maybe 15) xx
