This week on #your6essentials we hear from Alice, one half of The 6 Essentials and mum to Kip (11 months). Take 5 this afternoon and find out what makes her short list…
1. Your pregnancy essential?
Get yourself a good pillow. My sleep was disturbed from about 8 weeks into my pregnancy and it’s still not quite recovered. There’s nothing like getting into bed and hugging that soft, cool pillow – sorry husband!
2. Your motherhood essential?
Muslins – lots of them. You need one in every room! The bigger they are, the better.
3. Essential piece of advice?
‘Don’t worry yourself with imaginings’. Our Grandma used to spout many classics, but this one always stuck with me. It applies to so many situations. Having a baby puts your insecurities and concerns into overdrive so it’s important to take a step back and deal with the facts… much easier said than done, but it helps keep you sane!
4. Your handbag essential?
Skin & Tonic’s Naked Lip Balm. It’s divine!
5. Your winter essential?
A really good pair of boots. In black… they go with everything. They need to be quick on and off for chasing a toddler about (agh where did my baby go?!).
6. All I want for Christmas is…
To turn my house into a Winter Wonderland! I can’t wait to go over the top with decorations and start little Christmas traditions with Kip. Christmas passed me by last year with a 3 week old baby so I plan to go big this year!
