Sparkles & Stretchmarks: A UK Parenting & Pregnancy Blog: - Review

Thursday, 2 May 2013 - Review

While in the last weeks of my pregnancy I discovered a new website -

I very much enjoyed browsing through the website and made myself a little list of things I would like to buy from them, so when I was given the opportunity to review their website I was very excited!

The website is aimed at pregnant women and new mums specifically, and sells a wide variety of useful and lovely products!

They sell everything from skincare products for Mums and Babies, to Journals, photo frames and lots of other lovely keepsakes.

The website is very easy to navigate - offering search buttons such as "Gifts under ten pounds" , "New Mum Essentials", "Baby Shower Ranges" and more.

I was sent a lovely little package by Only4Mummy in order to review their services....

They very kindly sent me the following products:

Natalia New Mother Bath Soak

This lovely calming bath soak has been an absolute god send in the first few weeks since having Tyne, it is lovely to hand Baby over to Daddy for half an hour and relax in a lovely calming bath! I think products like this really do make ideal gifts for new mums.
 The Natalia New Mother Bath Soak is available from for £8.00

A Little Something For Baby Giftset by Earth Mama Angel Baby

This beautiful little giftbox contains:
Angel Baby Shampoo & Body Wash
Angel Baby Bottom Balm
Angel Baby Lotion
Angel Baby Oil

All very handy products for any new baby, and the little gift box is SO pretty! The colours and design are very unisex so this would be a perfect gift for somebody who hasn't found out the sex of the baby they are expecting.
The "A Little Something For Baby" giftset is available from for £16.95

I was very impressed with the service offered by as their delivery was very fast and the goods came beautifully wrapped in lovely pink paper - I would not hesitate to use their services in the future, infact I have already chosen a gift from their website to purchase for my pregnant sister (I can't share it with you as she reads my blog and its a surprise!).

I wish I had found this website earlier in my pregnancy, as I struggled dreadfully with morning sickness until I was 26 weeks pregnant - I could not find anything at all to help me. have a whole section dedicated to Morning Sickness relief products - including Wellness Tea and their very own Sickness Ease which is available for just £4.99!

What I found most impressive about their Morning Sickness section was the following blurb: "

We have tested a number of Morning Sickness remedies most of which we found to be completely useless and a waste of money. Which is why we do not stock hundreds of different products just the ones which actually worked for us. All these products have natural ingredients."

How refreshing for a company to take this honest and ethical approach to selling! This certainly scored them brownie points with me, as somebody who wasted an awful lot of money trying various morning sickness remedies which were of no help to me whatsoever!

Whilst browsing their website again tonight, I have to say I have been super impressed with their variety of products available and have already found lots of items I really want to buy from them soon!

The following items are on my wishlist:

Digi Baby Journal

This pretty little crystal heart doubles up as an interactive Baby Journal which you can use to record the first 5 years of babies life!
 With over 100 guided questions to create your memory book, you can upload pictures, videos and audio clips to keep and cherish forever as well as record Baby Milestones, celebrations, create your family tree, write letters to Baby, and so much more!
I think this product is absolutely amazing and SUCH a bargain for only £24.99 - click here for more information!

Mum's Brag Book

I think this little "Brag Book" photo album is SO cute! I would love this to keep little photos of Tyne in - it holds up to 48 photos so is a really good size!
The Brag Book is available in pink or blue for just £4.99!

If you haven't already I would highly recommend that you check out if you are expecting or are a Mum yourself - I know it will certainly be my go to shop for all my future New Mummy & Baby gifts!!!

Have you ever used this website? What do you think of these products?
As always, I'd love to hear from you!
