I have struggled with depression, anxiety and stress for the vast majority of my adult life. It comes and goes in waves, for the most part it is entirely manageable but I’m always looking for ways keep on top of things. So when I heard about Mikei Red Reishi I was eager to try it.
Mikei Red Reishi has unique properties to help your body manage stress and balance energy levels, so perfect for me.
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→
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.
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.
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 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→
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→
As a busy mum I don’t get a huge amount of time to pamper myself. Or any actually. So I try to make the simple things, like a shower in the morning, a bit more special by using really lovely products. Like Dr. Bronner’s liquid soap.
Dr. Bronner’s really appeals to me as is 100% organic and the Baby Mild range can be used for all of us, which is especially handy when travelling. Although at home it’s mainly me using it, because I’m not sharing! Obviously it’s perfectly suited for babies sensitive skin, but anyone with extra sensitive skin or allergies will enjoy it.
