5 Best Products for Mums

1. Storksak Elizabeth Changing Bag

This beautiful bag is the changing bag of my dreams. It’s a gorgeous lake-washed leather, elegant bag finished with brass hardware from Storksak’s Classic collection.

This beautiful bag is available in Black and Tan and I have it in Tan. I love the brightness of the leather and I also think Tan goes with all of my outfits too.

The Storksak Elizabeth Changing Bag!

The bag comes with a zipped detachable accessories pouch (that you can move between handbags). Also an insulated bottle holder (keeps fluids warm or cool for up to four hours) and a padded changing mat. It’s perfect for a day out or travelling with the kids and I’ve also used it sans kids for an overnight stay on my own too!

I love that this bag is such great quality that it will last for years and when my youngest is out of nappies, it converts seamlessly into a beautiful handbag.

I was delighted to work alongside Storksak as a Brand Ambassador in 2017 and cannot wait to continue that this year. You can also read my reviews of the Storksak Charlie and Storksak Mini Fix too.

You can buy the Storksak Elizabeth online here in Australia, here in the US and here in the UK.

Women wearing Modibodi Underwear

Modibodi leak proof underwear has every kind of potential pant-leakage situation covered. Periods, sweat, incontinence, discharge you name it. It all helps with feeling a bit more confident, doesn’t it? They have every shape and size covered too.

The range includes breathable, functional and pretty pants to suit every shape with patented Modifier Technology™ – a super slim (only 3mm) stain resistant lining for periods and bladder leaks, and Modifier Air Technology™ which is your go-to to keep your dry and cool with it’s a moisture-wicking, odour-fighting powers for getting sweaty. That’s a lot less to worry about during periods or gym sessions!

What I love most about them is the peace of mind – day and night. These babies DO NOT MOVE. They’re comfortable, breathable and dependable too. Plus they look anything but “period pants”. I love them so much that I’ve just put in another order for me and some friends who want to test them out too! Read my full review here.

3. DermaScar Silicone Gel

As you might remember, I have a two inch keloid scar on my chest that developed after I had my portacath removed last year. I was devastated when it formed having been so happy that chemo was over for me and I was supposed to be moving on with my life.

I collaborated with DermaScar on this post last year and have been using their DermaScar C&E Gel to help improve the look of the scar. Whilst it will never completely disappear, I hope that in time, it fades and flattens.

I loved working with DermaScar and was so happy to hear that our collab inspired them to work in supporting other women undergoing surgery for breast cancer.

Here is my full review of Dermascar and you can buy DermaScar online here in Australia.

4. Peony Parcels

You all know how much I’m an advocate for creating time for yourself as a busy mum. So I was so happy to collaborate with Peony Parcel last year.

Inside a Peony Parcel!

I’ve received a couple of their beautiful pamper boxes and they’re the perfect treat for women who want to indulge themselves with a little “me time”.

The boxes are teaming with full and sample sizes of gorgeous goodies from beauty to stationery to gourmet treats! I loved discovering some brands and taking time out to enjoy these lovely treats.
