Despite not actually having been tagged, I just couldn't resist answering these questions on my favourite season.  I love Autumn.  Luckily I live in a forest so I get to really notice the changing colours and how it alters the landscape.  Autumn is the best.

Yurbuds - Review

I love running!  I've ran countless 5ks, 3 half-marathons and most recently Tough Mudder (read about that here).  One thing that helps me when I'm training is listening to music.  It can be a lifesaver, giving me a boost of energy and pushing me that bit harder.  However, there is nothing worse than when that power song comes on and your earplugs fall out.  Nobody has time to be constantly sticking earplugs whilst trying not to fall over.

Pure Organic Wet Towelettes, Mendill - Review

Followers of Tea in the Tub on Twitter (@teainthetub) will know that I recently won DB Review's Mendill pure organic wet towelettes giveaway. (Yay!)  I received one of each: nectarine, lemon, orange, eucalyptus and lavender.  They are paraben, chemical, preservative and cruelty-free making them suitable for all skin types including babies.  They are the worlds only 100% organic wipes, from the essential oils used to even the actual cotton.  If that's not enough for you then they are also super green (well, technically white) using recycled materials and sustainable practices PLUS Mendill donate to charity!  If any company deserves a halo, it's these guys.

Caca Rouge, Lush - Review

In this post I mentioned that I would be using Lush's Caca Rouge before my holiday. Finally (sorry it's taken so long) here is the henna post.
For all you thinking "Caca whaa?" let me explain.. Caca Rouge is henna, a 100% natural dye made from the flowers of the henna tree and used for many wondrous things one of which being a hair colourant which comes in various colours - red, auburn, brown, black. It has none of the nasty ingredients that mainstream hair dyes contain and isn't damaging to the environment.

I first used Caca Rouge in 2008. The Swansea sun had bleached my lovely red locks into strawberry blonde - NOT happy. Being as Lush obsessed as I am, I popped into my local and explained my dilemma where I was given a sample. I have not looked back and when I feel my gingerness needs a boost, out comes the henna.
