My son had severe eczema spots at 6 months old that were constantly oozing and bleeding, we tried a lot of steroid creams and lotions – most of which made it worse and also caused the skin around the flare ups to become irritated.
We tried Xmaease because it was steroid free and had natures natural healers in it.

We Were Liars


While the old saying says you shouldn’t judge a book by a cover, We Were Liars by E Lockart looked like it would be a fantastic book. And it was. It is beautifully written, at times the way the Author plays with words reminding me of Keri Hulme’s book The Bone People.

The lead character Cadence is a member of a very affluent but dysfunctional Sinclair family that typically spends summer together on their private island. But two summers ago Cadence was found down on the beach with a head injury with no memory of why she was there.

Punctuation Mark


Mark loved punctuation. For starters, it looked funky, and its symbols are understood in all languages. There’s a sign for an exclamation and a question, a dollar, brackets, an AND, an AT and an ASTERISK, as well as one for an ELLIPSIS…a dot, dot, dot.’ This special picture book cleverly combines words and visuals for a delightful dose of wordplay and fabulous fun with grammar. Punctuation Mark fills a gap in the market by crossing the boundary between fiction and fact; the content is educational in a cheeky, playful way.
