Uplift Body Wash & Body Lotion, Seascape - Review

Seascape Island Apothecary Uplift Body Wash & Lotion, and Sooth Sleep Oil
Seascape Island Apothecary Uplift Body Wash & Lotion, and Sooth Sleep Oil*
When Seascape Island Apothecary got in contact offering me to try something from their range, it didn't take me long to choose the Uplift Body WashOne of my favourite scents is eucalyptus. It reminds me of being all snuggly and warm sucking on cough sweets. You can be all bunged up but one whiff of eucalyptus will clear your sinuses.

OM Yoga Magazine, August edition - Review

Recently OM Yoga Magazine asked if I would like to be affiliated with them. Being a bit of a fitness junkie with a fondness of yoga I immediately agreed. You don't need to be a hardcore 'yogi' to find an article relevant to you.

Super Extreme Spending Ban!!!

I've seen many posts on spending bans in the past year. Some last a gruelling couple of months, whilst others fail at the first online offer. I sat back and thought how silly the whole 'spending ban' concept was. Oh how I laughed. Well... After examining my bursting cupboard and having only 3 months to make a hole in my collection, I knew I had to do something. So I came to the difficult, heart-wrenching decision to not buy any more products until I've completely ran out. Why buy a new shower gel when I've already got 9? I'd rather be turning those hard earned sterling into sweet sweet dollars for when I leave the country.

Ovivo, Super Health Boost in a Bottle - Review

We all know that olives are great for your health and taste gross but did you know that olive leaves are super healthy too? Neither did I until I discovered Ovivo wellness. According to their website, olive leaves were shown to have the highest antioxidant levels in a study of 55 medicinal herbs. Antioxidants protect us against the free radicals (pollution, cigarette smoke etc) which we are exposed to in every day life.
Now we don't want to be munching on olive leaves all day so the clever people at Ovivo created a 7 day bottled supply with an easy to use measuring strip on the side so that you get exactly 70ml per day.

Acupuncture at Neal's Yard Remedies, Cheltenham - Review

Acupuncture
Acupuncture+
Acupuncture, an ancient Chinese medicine involving placing needles gently under the skin on certain points for various reasons is an alternative medicine I have been wanting to try for a long time. It is not cheap so when I saw a Groupon offer for a Neal's Yard Remedies 1 hour, 45 minute consultation and treatment, I didn't need to think about it before buying. I love Neal's Yard products so I bought one for my mum too.

Admit it. We all love sugary treats. If you're a regular reader here you'll know that I like products that offer a little something extra. I already love sweets so when they contain beauty boosting ingredients such as biotin then what's not to get excited about?

London Tea Review + GIVEAWAY! - CLOSED

I first heard of the London Tea Company when I visited the infamous Selfridges food court in London last winter. I was drawn to a tin of Tropical Green Tea pyramid bags which became a favourite as the tea was really delicate and sweet. Green tea gets bitter when it's over-brewed but even when I was clumsy and left the teabag in the cup it still tasted light and fresh. Sadly there were only 10 bags which swiftly ran out. As if sensing my distress The London Tea Company offered to kindly let me try their range. Even more generously they are offering TWO of my readers a chance to win their range as well. Yes you read that correctly, two winners!

I saw the Konjac Puff Sponge doing it's rounds across blogs back in 2013 so I think I'm a bit late on this bandwagon. Needless to say I was swayed by all the positive reviews so on a trip to London in November I made the inevitable purchase.
