Baby Shower!

This weekend I escaped, left the kids with hubby and drove down South to see my family, and to have a girls baby shower lunch with my sister Johanna who is having twins in the next few weeks.  It was so nice to see them and to catch up.  I do see them quite often but its easier to catch up when there's no kids around to distract you!  We had a lovely lunch (and a pudding to die for) and a great catch up.

Johanna got some lovely presents for the babies but also for herself as well.  In particular she got a really nice Sanctuary set with a body wash, body cream, body scrub and body spray. I was very interested in this because I'm a bit of a Sanctuary fan myself, she told me in no uncertain terms that I wasn't stealing it - lol!  I gave my new Smashbox highlighter its first outing that day, I was pleased with it and I'll be reviewing it soon, I'm still testing its staying power!

My youngest sister bought her this Calming Lavendar Shampoo and Bodywash as she'd used it on her baby (whose nearly 1 now), not only does it smell lovely it does calm babies down if they're having a bit of a strop!

You can buy the Earth Friendly range in Boots and online.  I like the lavender smell, I think its a bit like Marmite for some people, you either love it or hate it but I do like it, it reminds me of flowers in really beautifully coiffured gardens!

This is the aforementioned Sanctuary Bodywash Set, beautifully packaged as always, as you can see from the photo she's pretty pleased with her gift (probably thinking she needs to hide it from me so I don't take it home!)  Johanna's dress is from the ASOS maternity range, they do lovely clothes but also really reasonably priced, she looked great, not sure where the cardigan is from though, I forgot to ask her.  

So all in all a lovely weekend, hope yours was too!
