nsm Beauty: WIN goodies with Palmer’s new Stretch Mark range and What To Expect When You’re Expecting, the movie!

This giveaway has now closed. The winners have been notified by email!

Today, a great comp to mark the launch of the NEW Palmer’s Stretch Mark range, and the forthcoming ‘mama-flick’, What To Expect When You’re Expecting!

During the exciting journey that is pregnancy, it can be hard to know what to expect – especially with your first baby. On the beauty front, many mamas-to-be are concerned about stretch marks. But there are steps you can take to help prevent them.

Palmer’s new and improved Stretch Mark range will keep your skin looking beautifully soft and smooth throughout pregnancy. The No 1 Stretch Mark Range in the US is now enriched with new, Bio C- Elaste™ Complex, pure Cocoa and Shea Butters and Vitamin E, proven to help improve skin’s elasticity and moisture.

With regular use, the intensive and non-greasy creams, butters and lotions can help reduce the possibility of developing stretch marks and relieve dryness and itchiness associated with stretched skin during pregnancy.

Choose from Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks, an all-over-body massage lotion;   Massage Cream, designed for stubborn areas such as hips, thighs, tummy and bust, or the ‘solid’ Tummy Butter, an ultra-concentrated night-time treatment. All Palmer’s Stretch Mark products are hypoallergenic, paraben-free, phthalate-free and dermatologically tested, and have a new, light scent.

Palmer’s will be featured in the hilarious and heartfelt comedy What To Expect When You’re  Expecting, due for UK release on 25 May. The film is based on the hit pregnancy and new mum bestselling book. The film stars Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez and Elizabeth Banks and follows the lives of five couples preparing for parenthood.

To celebrate the release of the movie, head on over to www.uk.palmers.com/competitions/ for your chance to win £1000 worth of shopping vouchers to prepare for your baby’s arrival.

PLUS! Palmer’s are also offering nonstopmamas a chance to win one of four Palmer’s goody bags, worth £50 each!

Each bag includes the new and improved Stretch Mark treats!

nsm Fashion: oh-so-pretty nostalgia! Cath Kidston new children’s summer dress print

You know when a print really takes you back? This one did it for me …

… in the new Cath Kidston kids’ spring/summer collectionicon, the neon daisy white print so reminds me of something I wore as a child. Lovely, and available in a dress, hat and kaftan (take your sunny pick!).

It just says Seventies summers, doesn’t it?
