Welcome to #mamamondays…Peter Rabbit, Pixi Beauty & This is Us

Welcome to  #mamamondays.  Here I try to include anything that is making us happy – and hopefully you too – even though it’s a Monday. And, I have to say it really is making me try to make the most of this often ‘depressing’ day

It has been anything from what we’re doing or planning to what we’re eating, watching or reading. I’ve even included items I’m lusting after or buying and anything else that has been inspiring me to make Mondays – and the rest of the week if need be – just a little more bearable.

I really hope that #mamamondays is inspiring you to make the most of this fresh start we get every week…

WATCHING

We caught a special screening of Peter Rabbit: The Movie over the weekend thanks to our friends at Joules. Joules have created a special official Peter Rabbit movie collection of clothes for babies, boys and girls featuring the mischievous and infamous bunny (read and see more on my post here at Junior Magazine) and invited us to a movie afternoon tea.

Although Miss M enjoyed the movie, the characters and the story – I especially liked the setting, the main house and cottage in Windermere were gorgeous – I did think it was maybe a little too modern for lovers of the original Beatrix Potter tales and the movie was heavily loaded with ‘product placement’ but, besides that it was an enjoyable way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon.

And, will make you want a pet bunny too!

TREATING

I recently went to a Pixi Beauty event and was offered the chance to try some of its skincare products. After going through the extensive range I finally decided on this little lot… in the hope it might help clear up my hormonal and blemished skin.

I will report back soon when I have given them a good trial…

Pixi Skintreats Rose Oil Blend, Pixi Skintreats Rose Tonic, Pixi Skintreats24k Eye Elixir, Pixi Skintreats Peel & Polish, Pixi SkintreatsGlowtion Day Dew and Pixi Skintreats Beauty Sleep Cream all from PIXI BEAUTY

 

CRYING

I’m a bit late to the party with this one but I have been watching the first season of This is Us on Amazon prime. I have been catching up with it on my phone on my commute to work (as I mentioned here) and am loving it.

It first aired in 2016 and is a series about family, siblings, relationships, love, heartbreak and more. I’m not really that surprised I love it – and, have been hooked since the first episode – as many of the episodes are directed and produced by Ken Olin. TV geeks will know that he was a reoccurring actor/producer/director of two other TV hits, that also happen to be amongst my faves too: Brothers & Sisters and Thirtysomething (a show I used to watch in the late 1980’s with my mum).

My only problem is that EVERY episode has led me to shed a few (ok, a lot of) tears – not a great look on the 08.19am train to London Victoria.
