The Sleepyhead Baby Pod - A Review | jessicarhoades.co.uk

No sooner have you got your head around the fact that a squishy little person will be joining your family than you are bombarded with a list of gadgets, pieces of kit and so-called necessities that you simply ‘must’ purchase. Some (a cot, a car seat, a pram) are a given. Others (baby gyms, swings, […]

Why I'm All About That Base - How To Create A Flawless Complexion | jessocarhoades.co.uk

My skin and I have gone through some tough times. As a child, I can clearly remember my mum bribing me (with sweets, t.v…who knows?) if she could ‘just nip that blackhead’! Clearly, I was blemish prone from a very young age! I was never what you would describe as acnaic, nor was I prone […]

Whats In My Bag - The Mum Edition | jessicarhoades.co.uk

I was really quite excited to purchase my changing bag but was disappointed to be met with an array of spotted, striped and floral designs which, while clearly practical, weren’t really what I had in mind. Losing my sense of self after having a baby was, to a degree, inevitable, but I would be damned […]

Pearly Queen…One Jacket, Three Ways

Pearly Queen - One Jacket Three Ways | jessicarhoades.co.uk

I have a bit of a thing for pearls – I chose them to adorn wedding dress (quite the endorsement) and there’s just something so bloomin chic and regal about those little luminous orbs.
