Discover and create a new fragrance for every layer of you with KAYALI

Fragrance to me is an essential part of my everyday makeup uniform.  It sets the pace, the mood, and if forgotten, can leave you feeling unkempt and not ready for the day ahead. I’d love to say that I have one go to/favourite fragrance; unfortunately, I don’t. Instead, I have a catalogue of fragrances that I have worn over the years that evoke a memory – be it happy or

Mental Health Awareness Week UK – How are you feeling, really?

This week marks the start of Mental awareness week in the UK. Whilst not being your typical conversational starter it’s great to see general awareness of this topic being brought to the forefront of our minds.  A recent study by the Mental Health Foundation in 2016 showed that 1 in 6 adults experience a common mental health problem such as anxiety or depression. During my recent pregnancy I often found

Why travelling long haul with a new-born was a great idea.

When we shared that we had already booked a long haul flight to travel with our 4.5-month-old baby before he was even born, I’m sure some people thought that we were extremely brave or plain stupid! Being completely honest I was slightly anxious about the whole thing, but having the reassurance that the flights and hotel were refundable should we decide to bail out on the whole adventure put those

Aldi’s January Baby and Toddler Special Buy Event live now!

And just like a blink of an eye two months have gone by and I no longer have a newborn (or tiny baby) in my case, and I’m drawing near to the end of the infamous fourth trimester! So what have I learnt apart from my natural instinct to Survive and sleep? To stock up! It still baffles me to this day how such a small human can require so

Perfectly Prepped with Mama Mio’s New Tummy Rub Scrub!

Being pregnant definitely makes you more aware of your skincare routine and of the products you use and the effects/reactions they can have on your skin or, even potentially, on your unborn baby. Now, I’m not saying that I’m not one to indulge in a bit of pampering as I definitely do. But what I can confess is that I’m lazy and often, time poor when it comes to actually

Back by popular demand this August: The Aldi Baby and Toddler Event!

Prepping for the arrival of Baby Jonas has been a labour of love mixed in with some heavy lifting, sweat and some tears – yes, I’m referring to the highly overdue clear out of our spare room which, since the day we moved in, took on the role of study/laundry and natural dumping ground. So now with our lovely neutral blank canvas, tick tock shit just started to get real

Where I’ve Been and My Six Summer Beauty Essentials

It’s been a while, I know! What started out as a short break in the depths of winter turned into a prolonged blog sabbatical, and all within good reason!

Well, in terms of MrsJonasRecommends, it’s business as usual with content covering my lifestyle and  – so

EOS Balms

I’ve started a bit of a lip care theme here all by accident. But as I have already posted about how to make your own DIY Sugar Lip Scrub – here, and the shop bought alternative (Fabulips by Bliss) – here, I thought of continuing on the lip theme. That being said, I am sharing with you some of the lip balms that I’m loving right now. And when I

Slendertone for the Abs

I’ve been putting off writing this post out of sheer embarrassment, but then I probably embarrass myself on a daily basis somehow. I’m going to go head first (or abs first) into giving my views on Slendertone. My first memories of  Slendertone are from when I was a kid when it was a TV Shopping led craze. Your mum, your older sister and even your gran owned one.  It was being advertised everywhere,

The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins

I heard about Girl On The Train prior to it’s release and after being hyped as the next ‘Gone Girl’ I simply has to put in a pre-order hence the lovely picture of my Kindle above. Having already read the blurb and a few preview reviews,  I knew that this book was going to be very addictive.  The story was based around the main character Rachel who on her daily
