Sunday 15 December 2019


Have you heard the news? I have a bun in my oven! Or should that be a Christmas cake, as it's a December baby this time. When you're nearly 100 years old, like I am, you have to push them out quite quickly. Maxi will be a year-and-a-half old when Mini comes along, but he told me he's fine with his only-child status expiring in December.

So, yeah, expect lots of pregnancy-related lotions and potions for the next few months, such as Kiehl's Creme de Corps Body Lotion, right, from €31.

You see, when I'm preggers, I get insanely dry skin everywhere, except on my face. It's like all the oil glands in my body decide to hang out on my face, leaving the rest of me high and, literally, dry! This lotion, I find, works wonders. My skin soaks it up instantly, yet it moisturises efficiently. Best 
of all, it doesn't compete with my perfume and I can apply it in front of 
Will or Maxi without asphyxiating them!

Many lotions, 
I find, are too runny upon application, but this has 
a lovely, thick consistency. It doesn't feel sticky - like some other lotions I've been tirelessly trying recently - or like I have a mask over my skin and nearly 
need to go and shower again to 
get the icky, sticky feeling off.
