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…

Advent Calendars

I know you all think I’m insane but seriously you need to be thinking about your advent calendars NOW. If you’re happy with a standard chocolate one (and let’s face it most of us are!) then obviously there’s no need to panic but if you fancy something a bit different then you had better get your…

Cactus 

Remember when everything was pineapple themed? Pineapple drink stirrers, pineapple wallpaper, pineapple pyjamas, pineapple tampons (probably)…  Not sure what it is with the British obsession with things that are deemed “tropical”. Pineapples, flamingos, palm trees, llamas…  Well now it’s all about the cactus. You can barely move without bumping into a succulent, so if you…

Costco.

For those that don’t know, Costco is an American wholesaler. They sell to trade (obviously) but also to members of the public if you meet the requirements for their membership. My father is a retired banker (a job that is on the approved list) and I am an add-on to his membership.  Costco is probably…
