Team Favourites : Best 12 Summer First Aid Kit Items
Summertime grants permission to let loose, stay up later, run a bit faster, and truly embrace life outdoors without school, schedules, and routine. So if long days are spent running in meadows, hiking in mountains, or swimming at the seaside... then possible scrapes, bug bites, or bruises, are unfortunately inevitable. Because we don't want summer ...

To shave or not to shave? Makeup free and natural or fight those sign of age, avoid grey hair, etc? We received lovely responses from readers yesterday who appreciated seeing makeup-free Emilie and Esther make-up on holiday. It reminded us of Courtney’s article on pampering pressures on social media. And arm hair! How do you feel about grooming and pampering as a mama, and what lessons is it teaching your kids? 🤷‍️ One reader commented : “We really do make life harder for ourselves: the same people telling us to be happy with ourselves, love ourselves, accept ourselves etc are the same people telling us in the next breath (or page of a magazine, or showing us on the red carpet) to shave everything/dye our hair/wear a push-up bra/undergo surgery to stop the ageing process... I tell my kids all the time – be your own person. It’s fine to be inspired by, covet, try or buy something you’ve seen on someone else, but ultimately YOU have to shine through too and what makes you YOU is going to be very different to the next person, so embrace it. Hair (or no hair!) and all.” What are your thoughts? #babyccinokids
