A Little Square » Necessities in Life...
Jack of all trades is what I like to call myself when someone asks what I do. I juggle 3 kids, a business, after school sport activities, kids birthday parties, and volunteering for local communities - so time for me is difficult. Although I try to make it to the gym twice a week and walk everywhere I possibly can, there are still some ‘problem areas’ I have had difficulty shifting since ‘Number 3’ came along.Achieving the perfect body can seem a bit out of reach and working at it is, well…hard work. I do eat better, drink loads of water, and spend more time with my children rather than playing Bunco with my girlfriends. So, what seems to be my issue? Those darn problem areas that only plastic surgeons have the maps to!Ladies, there is light at the end of this tunnel. I recently picked up two new products that usually target new and expectant mummies. They relieve discomfort, they repare skin as it stretches, and apart from that, from their all natural ingredients, they massage the skin on the tummy while it grows! So why are these products not promoted to the likes of me? I am not pregnant!Well, I took a gander and tried them and they have proven to be a miracle! I use them because I am getting results! The first is The Miracle Oil (100ml). Made from Argan oil, rich in Omega 6 and 9, it nourishes, it firms and helps put the elasticity back in your skin while passion-flower and sweet almond oils gently soothe and soften. And it is great at reducing the appearance of healed scars and damaged, uneven skin tone.I know it’s been a while since I had my last child, but there’s never time like the present. Like a daily routine, I simply massage the oil in first then at night I use the second product, The Body Smoother (190ml) to help re-hydrate those problem areas. Made from a super-nourishing blend of centella, hibiscus, and shea butter, it increases elasticity, boosts moisture and helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite.As we prepare for winter in the UK and its unpredictable weather, a little square is offering a special deal on both The Miracle Oil and The Body Smoother for you to enjoy for only £25.00 – saving you £3.98!Try them both, get that miracle working and feel great!

Squeaky Clean Hair and Fresh Faces
Like most mothers of families with 1 to a gazillion kids, I have a very busy, hectic social and activity-ridden schedule of school, birthday parties, playdates, afterschool activities, and hair raising park-time usually ending up, as expected, head-to-toe filth!
Our daily cleaning routine ranges from cleaning behind the ears to dodging Nit infestations. It’s all about tackling, prevention and containment. I can’t give myself full credit of keeping tabs on the laundry, but, I will give myself full Kudos to discovering what *celebrity mums, Diane Lane and Brooke Shields, have discovered: The Original Little Sprouts natural hair and skin care collection for children ages 0+. I, like them, SWEAR by it!
One of my daughters has really un-ruly, long, dry, curly hair. Before ‘Sprouts’, as I like to call it, she screamed and ran away when the brush came out. Now, she will sit still and hand it to me.
We use all of the products, but mostly my children are styled with three of the top selling products: The Natural Shampoo, The Deep Conditioner, and The Miracle Detangler – emphasis on ‘Miracle’! The end results are tangle-free, smooth, silky, gorgeous locks, camera ready for any close-up.
For mother’s peace of mind, this is an organic hair and skin care collection. Sprouts is hormone and chemical free. There are no added essential citrus oils, are free of insect attractors such as honey, soda & fruit fragrances, and are vegetarian and vegan approved.
But my peace of mind came to our daily morning routines when she handed me the Detangler on her own. Pure joy and resolve! The Natural Shampoo’s added benefit contains organic rosemary and basil, which can help repel against lice and insects. And from what I can see, we have been Nit-free for 4 years - and that’s no joke!
A little square is a believer in this collection and hope you will give it a go. Once tried, you’re hooked, and no going back to any of those commercial You-Know-Who’s!

As we all know, it’s hard enough going through life trying to pave our own paths, owning every decision we make and keeping track of all of our own ‘bits’.
However, what’s even harder, as a seasoned parent, is trying to find your own child’s belongings after school, in their own ocean of extra ‘bits’. Your actions tend to be swift and thoughtful whilst ensuring you’re not tossing someone else’s child in front of you as you lunge over the desks in hopes of reaching your child’s lost lonely sock in the deep corner! But inevitably, no matter how precautious we are, it happens. We end up with the wrong stuff! How many times have we taken in the wrong items ranging from hats, to scarves, to shoes, to scooters!!!
Well, worry no more! a little square is doing its small ‘bit’ to help parents everywhere - we’re introducing one answer to help. Now featuring a solution to your problems - Owny Rubber Bands. Designed specifically with children in mind - but more for parents’ peace of mind. They are stretchy, durable, and best yet, come in a fabulous variety of bright colours and designs!

They are great for scooters, bags, school supplies, collectible fashion bands and even work well as party bag closures – their purposes are endless! And parents can wear them too!
Themes are Diggers, Football, Dinosaur, Skulls, Hearts, Stars, Slippers, and flowers. Measuring approximately 1.5cm wideX18cm round. Not suitable for children under 3 years.
