    Fearne Cotton Huggies Wipes

    A few Fridays ago, Eliza, Florence and I headed over to west London to take part in a top secret celebrity photoshoot for Huggies…with Fearne Cotton.

    Fearne is working with Huggies to launch the new Style and Go wipes packs. So it was pretty exciting to be asked to take part in the shoot along with lovely fellow Huggies Ambassador Emma, who blogs over at Life According to Mrs Shilts.

    Our normal Fridays at home are pretty laid-back, with highlights including the dizzy heights of the park or possibly a trip to the shop thrown in for a bit of variety. So this was ever-so-slightly different…

    We acted out several scenarios with Fearne, including baking and painting (predictably; messy carnage that the children all really loved).

    Emma and I even got to have our hair and make-up done (how amazing would it be to have someone do this all the time?)

    It was such a fantastic experience that seemed surreal at times. Fearne was absolutely lovely and super friendly, so it was a lot of fun. And did I mention slightly surreal?!

    It took place in a massive Victorian town house filled with so much interesting stuff, from the photos on the wall to all the quirky things dotted around. Such house envy.

    I’m pretty fortunate to take part in some amazing things due to blogging, and this was right up there. We’ve been sworn to secrecy about this so it’s brilliant to finally be able to tell everyone.

    Not our usual Friday afternoon then..!

    I’ll be writing about the new Style and Go wipes pack soon, but here’s what Fearne has to say:

    ‘The new HUGGIES® Style On the Go pouches are genius and look awesome. I love the fact you can hang the pouches off your buggy or even your wrist, and the brightly coloured designs mean you can find them even in the untidiest handbag! I never thought something so practical as wipes would end up being so stylish. It’s important to me that I’m using the kindest possible products to skin, and HUGGIES® Style on The Go pouches and refills are ideal as they don’t contain any nasties.’

    We’re working with Huggies as wipes ambassadors this year. You can also still take part in the Huggies Wipes Challenge, more details here, and news on the new Huggies Pure Wipes.

      yup total hair jealousy, combined with house envy and Lady Cotton jealousy. Can’t wait to hear more about the packs. I love a change bag accessory! Is that a Zara tshirt on Florence?? x

        Thank you! It was from Oliver Bonas over the summer. Love it too but don’t get to wear it that often as it’s not very breastfeeding friendly x

      What an exciting way to spend a Friday, Fearne always seems to be so friendly and energetic. Oh, and I’d love to always have someone do my make-up too.
