Healing Eczema with Aveeno

From the age of about 6 months Lilly has suffered with a mild form of eczema, this usually occurs on the back of her arms, he hands (occasionally) and the back of her legs. I wanted to share the two products that have put and absence to the eczema for a while now. 
We have been prescribed these for Lilly, but you can buy them in the shops.
Aveeno Body Wash
This product is actually quite new to us, we used to use the bath oil but were given this instead this time and I am so glad. This is quite a large bottle and you need very little to get a good lather out of it. The scent of the product is very subtle but is quite pleasant. 
This product is soap, alcohol and paraben free which certainly puts my mind at rest, but the main reason I love this is that it contains naturally active oat essence which is known as a barrier for skin. 
Aveeno Cream 
The Aeeno cream has much the same scent as the body wash and again you need not use a lot as it goes far. I use this all over after every bath…

My 10 Reasons to be Happy

I have been tagged by Jen at to write 10 reasons to be happy down, I for one could not wait to get writing as I love to write positiveness in a world so negative. I tag anyone who would like to take part.

1. My daughter - Lilly truly is my world, she makes me happy every day with her smile and has a beautiful personality coming out. I also had a lovely review from school that she is doing well and is a little brain box. She makes me so proud.

2. My nieces - These three girls are just amazing, they have been through so much and have been so strong, I really miss them as they live so far away but I am always thinking of them and love them very much.

3. Reading - My escape, I read every night, pretty much without fail and I just love to escape into a different world and forget about my problems even if it is just for 10 minutes. I try and keep my of the stories I read on the happier side as my mind does get a little to involved in the story.

4. Nice weathe…

Daisy Chains | My Sunday Photo

We have actually had a couple of lovely days that we have spent over in Nanny's garden, Lil's was busy picking daisies so I decided to create a daisy chain for her. She was made up with it. It brought back so many memories too as I used to spend ages making these when I was a little girl.
