Product Review: Palmer’s Skin Therapy Oil

I’ve been using Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil for almost two weeks now and I’m impressed. A pump nozzle to dispense the oil makes it easy to use and avoids spilling all over the place. Pumping the right amount does take a bit of getting used too though because when you push the pump all the way down it shoots out a lot of oil.   I applied Skin Therapy Oil on four areas – face, neck, CS keloid and stretch marks. Surprisingly, oil was easily absorbed in all areas. Stretch Marks: Creams I used during pregnancy did not work on my skin. Almost two years after giving birth via CSection to two kids, marks became faint white lines – no noticeable change so far. I have accepted the fact that my pregnancy marks will stay with me forever and I’m happy with that. CS Keloids: Occasionally my stitch gets really itchy, makes me want to cut it open and scratch the insides. Therapy Oil didn’t solve problem but it eased itchy level …

First week with PlanetBox Rover

I’ve been searching for ways to pack healthy lunch for V since he started Junior 1 – a filling lunch since school start at 7:10 am and ends at 1:40 pm, I was constantly worried that he might get hungry. Since then I’ve been searching (obsessing) for lunchboxes. We currently own Sahara Tiger Lunchbox, Lock and Lock, GoodByn box and latest addition a PlanetBox.   The Planetbox Rover complete set sells for $59.95 and consists of: – main lunchbox that has 5 compartments – little dipper container – big dipper container – carrying bag – magnets – ice pack (they ran a promotion and got it for free) As soon as LittleMan V saw the PlanetBox Rover he got excited and requested that I pack his lunch in it the next day. I managed to pack 3 school lunch using the rover this week. Here they are: Recipes for lunch food below will be available in the coming weeks.

Cuddles and Crumbs

MyNappyTales is now Cuddles and Crumbs   The name ‘Cuddles and Crumbs’ is a combination of the two main things I share on this blog: cuddles(family) and crumbs (food). It took me almost 6 months thinking of a name that would clearly reflect what I share here. A big thank you to my family and friends for helping me choose the new name.  I hope you like the new name and please do update your bookmarks.
