🌺 Local Brands & Maternity Pay 🌺


Let’s face it, maternity pay is tough going!

I’m lucky enough to live close to shopping outlets and my favourite pharmacy Mccartans (not good for the purse strings)

It sells the obvious pharmaceutical brands but also stocks a huge range of make up, skin care, candles, jewellery and perfume, with mostly all being that of local brands. High 5 to that!!

I cannot express enough how caring the pharmacists are, Gemma in particular saw me at my worst when my middle girl was suffering badly with Reflux and undiagnosed Cows Milk Protein Intolerance as a baby.


I always visit the Pharmacy when I need to buy a gift for Christmas & Birthdays etc and those girls have got some serious wrapping skills which saves me a lot of time as a busy mum of three.


My most recent purchase was a really lovely perfume by Jenny Glow. It’s inspired by Jo Malone so of course I was sold straight away.


Im a sucker for packaging so the simple yet elegant box and bottle was definitely pleasing to the eye & the smell is beautiful.


I decided to go for ‘Wood Sage & Sea Salt,’ even the name is pretty. It comes in a variety of scents & I can’t wait to try them all (when my money tree has grown of course)

So if you’re after a maternity pay friendly perfume, Jenny Glow is for you.

If you’re looking to purchase local brands or pick up that special gift for someone then definitely take a trip to Mccartans Pharmacy, located in Newry.

Thanks for reading 🌼
