The Benefits of Travelling

I have never travelled in the sense of going on off on some great adventure all by myself. I’ve gone on holidays. But always with someone. I’ve seen a lot of places and had amazing experiences. The idea of travelling, really travelling, I find quite a stressful thought. But what are the benefits of travelling?

Fabulous Dorco Eve 6 Razors

I recently received a trial pack of razors. The Dorco Eve 6 and replacement blades. I am very impressed. When I really wasn’t expecting to be.

It just so happened I was offered the Dorco Eve 6 at a point when I had really eeked all the life I could out my last razor blade cartridge at home. I’ll admit I do not change my blades regularly enough, but they are expensive, so I’ll just keep going until I literally can’t anymore.  Continue reading Fabulous Dorco Eve 6 Razors

This Plus That Equals…. How I Manage Stress

This plus that equals…. how I manage stress

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week I’ve been thinking a lot about how I handle my stress and anxiety.

I’m actually doing really well at the moment, but I’ve been trying to help someone who isn’t. Having been there and done that, I’m fully aware that when you are in the throws of it no one can actually tell you anything that will help, but maybe, just maybe, one of these little coping techniques might help someone else.

Creating a #BrightFuture with Unilever

Unilever and BritMums recently set a very interesting challenge. The #BrightFuture initiative is all about uniting communities and encouraging small changes in everyday life that will in turn have a positive impact on the world.

It all sounds very big doesn’t it? I have very little to do with my local community and honestly don’t think about the things we do at home as having an impact on anyone, let alone the world. Continue reading Creating a #BrightFuture with Unilever

Ruth’s Work from Home Journey with NuSkin

So as you all know it’s my dream to Stay At Home, and I’ve been exploring ways to do that. I’ve even managed it for the last year but due to a change in circumstances I’ve actually had to find myself a little supermarket job.

Whether that ends up being long-term or not who knows. But I’ve not given up on my Stay At Home dream. I love being my own boss, even if it’s stressful and hasn’t gone to plan. The flexibility it offers, not only around my son but my life is immeasurable. The pleasure and satisfaction it gives me is also amazing.

So when Ruth got in touch to see if I would help spread the word about her new business venture with NuSkin, of course I said yes. We’ve got to help each other as much as we can. Continue reading Ruth’s Work from Home Journey with NuSkin

A Very Common Problem

So I’m just going to say it, because it isn’t something to be embarrassed about. Around 62% of women will suffer some form of incontinence during pregnancy and around 50% will continue to have issues after childbirth. So why don’t we talk about it? The guys at Hartmann are trying to help.  Continue reading A Very Common Problem

Weleda Baby Range – Review

When I said to my mum I had been sent some of the Weleda Baby Range for L, her first reaction was ‘ooo that will be lovely then’ closely followed up with ‘did you get any of the adult range?’ said in a very hinty manner.

Bless her, I hadn’t been sent any of the adult range or I would have loved to have shared with her. I think Mum’s reaction says it all though. Weleda have a well earned reputation for quality products and we can see why.  Continue reading Weleda Baby Range – Review
