It's time for some me time, Mom!
1. The Microgreens Detox Collection by Eminence Organic Skin Care
Even if you think you're doing everything correct, skincare-wise, pollution could be going against all your best-laid plans. It could actually be adding to your accumulation of fine lines, the precursor to wrinkles, and in some cases, it’s the reason why wrinkles reach depths that can make us despair. Especially if you live in a built-up area.
Eminence Organic Skin Care has just launched the Microgreens Detox Collection, which is a three-product step to combating the negative effects of daily, unrelenting pollution. It consists of: The Stone Crop Cleansing Oil (€54.00), The Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant (€65.00) and the Lotus Detoxifying Overnight Treatment (€95).
Microgreens usually refer to the sprouting or small scale buds of plants, and with this new range, it’s a reference to broccoli, radish and clover sprouts plus Detoxophane, which is an active ingredient derived from Swiss cress sprouts that helps counter the visible effects of physical pollution.

3. Happy Mum, Happy Baby, by Giovanna Fletcher
Since Giovanna and her husband Tom Fletcher have had their sons Buzz and Buddy, they have been sharing glimpses of their family life online. With an honest and infectiously positive outlook and happy take on all things motherhood, Giovanna has developed a massive following of fellow parents and moms-to-be.
The vlogger, author, TV presenter and actress speaks honestly about her thoughts on post-baby bodies, her miscarriage, and choosing the names of her two adorable sons. This is not a book about how to have the perfect family experience - Gi would be the first to admit she is winging it just as much as the rest of us - instead it is an honest, upbeat and incredibly personal account of her own experience of having a family. Read about her adventures in motherhood in her bestselling book, Happy Mum Happy Baby, available now from easons.

5. Handsome Devil
The Irish coming-of-age comedy/drama you need to see! Handsome Devil tells the story of two boys in a rugby-obsessed boarding school – bullied outsider Ned and ‘macho athlete’ Conor. Though they appear to be complete opposites, they develop a friendship after being forced to share a dorm room.
Director John Butler told TheJournal.ie:
It’s a story about the acceptance of the other and of ambiguity and of difference, which should be an uncontroversial idea, but has now sort of become contested.
Handsome Devil is out now, so check local listings for times.
