Warming Winter recipes and your essential kitchen shopping list

Pin It

DSC_0919We love the Cooking Them Healthy girls. Not only do they know all about nutrition and what immune-boosting foods we and our children should be eating, but they also create ridiculously delicious recipes that are easy to make, and perfect for all the family (you can read our interview with them here). As it’s now officially cold, Georgie has created an amazing one-pot chicken, rice and butternut squash recipe for us, and because I need all the help I can get when it comes to the kitchen, Cooking Them Healthy’s brilliant nutritionist Jo has written a list of her shopping essentials. Enjoy!

Kate & Ruby Portraits

Have you discovered Tootsa MacGinty? It’s the most joyful collection of children’s clothes. Bright, cheerful, colourful – and the designs are fabulous. What’s more, every item in the collection is designed to be worn by boys and girls. If you loathe dressing your daughter in princess pink all the time; or have often lamented that boys don’t always have to wear clothes emblazoned with vehices/superheroes – this is the label for you.  It’s the brainchild of Kate Pietrasik – who is herself pretty fabulous: she juggles running her own company with being a single parent to Ruby, five. Prepare to be inspired… [Read more...]

Oh to look like this on the weekend, instead of slightly harassed and nowhere near as effortlessly pretty and rested. Perhaps if I buy this black and white Demylee Alex Sweater by J.Crew (excellent name btw) I will do? Or perhaps I should carry on using my latest skincare discovery…

My Beauty Uniform: Millie Kendall of Beauty Mart

Pin It

Millie_SmilingMillie Kendall is something of a legend in the beauty world. A make-up artist who together with Ruby Hammer launched the much-loved brand Ruby & Millie, she is one of the few make-up artists whose name is known not just by models, stylists and designers, but also by the public. Now, as co-founder of Beauty Mart (where you can find an expertly edited selection of products that really work) she has tried and tested countless products from well-known classics to high street brands and niche labels. We were therefore intrigued to find out what it is that she actually loves and uses (and a lot of it is very affordable)….
