Well truth be told… A LOT… But here is why!
As a Mama in Dubai there are many items I need to make my life easier. I am sure every Mama is the same and writes notes all over their house, car, children to keep up with the day to day chores.
That is me!
I am one of those Mama’s!
A Mama that is really good at writing said post it notes but useless at ticking them off. Which is so strange as in the workplace I am all about ticking jobs off one by one and not leaving my desk until they are done. So why do I not get the day to day jobs done?
Often it is because I am not prepared. I think of something I want to tick off the list but realise fast enough I don’t have the items I need to do the said chore. So I have decided to simplify my life a little to make life easier and I am starting with our car. Below are the items I am loving that I have neatly (for now) stored away in the boot or items that I am using daily that I cannot live without!
YoYo by Babyzen
I feel like every pregnancy we find one item that we couldn’t have done with out! This pregnancy was our first using the amazing Babyzen Yoyo from newborn. If you haven’t heard about this dreamy travel stroller yet, it was the first pushchair to be approved for cabin luggage (measuring only 56x45x25cm when folded up). It can be folded with one hand in a few seconds – and there is a strap to carry it over your shoulder like a light baby bag. Previous trips when our older girls were small, we have been told, “your stroller will be there for you when the door opens” – LIES… it is never there! So thankfully this light stroller is as easy to push and easy to store. You can purchase it from Just Kidding and as an added bonus the colour packs are incredible and so reasonably priced. You could have a colour for every season if you wanted. Popping the link here for you to check out yourself.
This Grab and Go booster seat has been a life saver! Whether it has been for Uber journeys, school pick ups – when you need another car seat (safety first folks) or like this summer, used to protect our children in Ireland, Amsterdam and Cyprus. As we know every child is different and MiFold adapts to suit every child. You can adjust it to fit the Childs height and width and it provides a safe and secure fit every time. I have major trust issues with care seats and I trust this one hundred percent. I will be doing a proper video on this soon as I really want to show parents how easy and safe it is to use… Stay tuned but in the mean time you can purchase here.
Skip Hop Back Seat Mirror
I am sure many mums are like me and start to panic when they cant see what their little one is up to? It is such a catch 22 because as soon as it is quiet in the car I am relieved that she has fallen asleep, but within a minute I then panic and need to pull in to check that she is ok. This mirror makes it easy to remain calm. Every traffic light or stop sign I can glance (when safe to do so) at my rear view mirror which shows me the skip hop mirror and gives me a sneak peak into what she is up to. It is really easy viewing, fits on to the headrest of my car and allows her to look at her reflection also – Which she loves! It also has shatter proof mirror and padding around the edges which makes this Mama happy as her safety comes first. Click here to purchase.
Just Essentials Summer Seat Cover
Had me at hot pink!? In all seriousness though. It protects her maxi cosi and is easy to wash when needed. The most important part is that it keeps her cool and cosy. This product is now on sale for DHS 15! Honestly – It is a must have! Click here to check it out.
Just Essentials – The Coolest Car Seat Sun Protector
Fiadh-Belle’s spare car seat is in her Daddy’s car and I always get nervous that as it is not being used it will fade with the sun. Not only that but it is roasting at the moment and I don’t want her to burn herself on the buckles if she ever has to go into this car. A friend told me about these covers that the sun bounces off and I was sold. This is an ESSENTIAL living in Dubai as far as I am concerned. You can view and purchase here and it is currently on sale!
Thank you so much for reading 🙂
Love, Helly xx
