Fragrance Free

Following on from my Limonene & Linalool post in September 2019 here are some further good buys I’ve found in the following months which might be helpful for those of you who have sensitive skin or allergies. Dishwasher I initially switched from my usual dishwasher tablets to Ecover Zero tablets which are fragrance free but…

Back to Beauty Pie…

Before we begin I’d like to thank those of you that enjoyed my previous Beauty Pie post last February and got in touch to tell me! Especially those lovelies who decided to trial Beauty Pie themselves by clicking on my Refer A Friend link in the post. The response was more than I could have…

EcoPress

We have one of those diddy little coffee machines that use Nespresso capsules. A few years ago they were all the rage and I bought one for my husband. He loves it and uses it often. Every now and then packages arrive containing all kinds of seductive sounding coffees and it makes him very happy….

smol

Just a quick post about this little company that I love! smol claim to have made the most effective concentrated laundry capsule in the world. They don’t sell in the shops so you buy directly from them and your order comes through the door at monthly intervals. And there are big savings to be made….

Limonene & Linalool

Regular readers of this blog will know that my teenage daughter has coeliac disease. This means she can’t ingest gluten. She adheres to a strict gluten free diet and we have to be careful about cross contamination. She was diagnosed six years ago and we haven’t stepped out the front door since without having to…

Bees Wrap

If you haven’t heard of or seen Bees Wrap yet you soon will. Touted as the eco friendly alternative to cling film, Bees Wrap can be reused for up to a year (and then composted), is mouldable, washable, water resistant and super strong. Want to create less waste? Hate all the plastic? Bees Wrap might…

Beauty Pie

As I’ve said before I’ve always been a bit lackadaisical about daily skincare. I just couldn’t get that excited about it but I’ve always been partial to a bit of pampering. I love a scrub, a mask, a serum… Well now I have managed to find the answer! And it’s not as hideously expensive as…

Lilo

I have mentioned Bravissimo before. It’s where I buy my bras and I’ve championed their maxi dresses. Well now they’ve branched out… into pool inflatables. Why? I hear you ask. Lingerie? That makes sense. Dresses, fair enough. Swimwear, totally. Bikinis, after all, have boobs in them and Bravissimo, as we know by now, is a…

Mr B’s

Yesterday my husband and I both took the day off and drove down to Bath to carry out one of my lovely 40th birthday experience presents that I was gifted. I was going for a reading spa. No, this is not where you go to a spa and someone paints your nails and massages your…

Recall

This isn’t so much a blog post as a public service announcement. John Lewis sent me an email explaining that KitchenAid were recalling some kettles due to a problem some people had experienced with THE HANDLE COMING AWAY. Bit worrying. Anyway I was offered a full refund or exchange so I happily swapped my existing…
