Love from the Nairn-Russo house

Hello, and thank you for stopping to look at my blog.

I am going to start this blog of with the biggest news, we have a son! I can’t wait to share some of the last 8 weeks with you all.  So, where to start?

His name is Beau Fox Nairn-Russo (Russo is Elliot’s surname) and he was born at 17:44 on September 19th 2019. He was actually due on September 9th, so he took his sweet time to arrive, and even then the labour was over forty hours long!

We saw four midwife shifts, Elliot even slept on the floor beside my bed (that’s dedication) and finally on that sunny early evening, with Classic FM playing in the background, little Beau was born. He immediately sought cuddles and has remained doing so, which is utterly adorable.

As you can imagine my world has completely changed in ways that neither books nor advice can prepare you for, and these are indeed wonderful times. I cannot quite get my head around how this tiny little person gobbles up all of the hours in the day…  and night! I will be very honest with you all, I did become unwell in the weeks after he was born. This was really unfortunate, especially as it was not really because of the birth, but due to having picked up some sort of flu-like virus shortly after leaving the hospital. But after a few weeks and treatment, I have now returned to health. Beau’s sweet nature certainly put a smile on my face every day and luckily he wasn’t at all affected.

As many of the mums reading this will understand, with so little time on a new mum’s hands, simple things like skincare routine can go out the window pretty fast! From having had a great skincare routine in pregnancy, I now find that mine has become very basic and fast, and sometimes not at all when it’s late at night. Plus, with sleep being on the minimal side, my eyes do look more tired. I have been trying the Gatineau set which will be the Today’s Special Value on November 24th. It includes Age Benefit Integral Regenerating Eye Contour, Perfection Ultime Retexturizing Beauty Cream, Thérapie Corps Énergisante Shower Gelée. Plus, I’ve been enjoying Melatogenine Serum and the one I really wish I’d had in hospital is the soothing Alkaline Mist.

Using skincare that actually works saves so much time. My eyes love the cream and I see the texture of my skin becoming more supple and glowy. I really do believe that if a company has been around for the 90 odd years like Gatineau has, then they are doing something right. I continue to say that QVC Beauty has some of the top experts in their field to hand to advise us all. I do tune in to the shows now with Beau and love watching the demos and learning from our experts.

On that note, I am going to make myself a cuppa. I can honestly say that this been a joint effort, as Beau has been snuggled up in his sling as I type. I’ll keep posting bits and pieces on my Instagram of the family, some more beauty discoveries and of course fashion – Beau has some fantastic outfits.

Until then, take care and looking forward to hearing from you.


Eilidh, and of course Beau!
