This Plus That Equals…. Little Things I’ve Found

This plus that equals…. little things I’ve found

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about those little products you find that are just amazing. Ones you start to wonder how you ever got by before them.

Last week I was asked to review Biotrue® Daily Eyelid Wipes from Bausch + Lomb, they had teamed up with TheraPearl who make the Eye-ssential Mask for the ultimate in eye care treats. Well I’ve been using the Eye-ssential Mask for a good couple of years now and that got me to thinking about all those little products I’ve found through blogging that I now use all the time.

Pushing Through It

I have literally lost track of how many times I have said ‘I just push through it’ this week. Don’t worry, I’ll push through it. It’s OK, I can push through it. Well you know, you just push through it. Again, and again and again.

As a parent I think that’s just what you do. As a working parent I have to. as a working parent who is also working very hard to not be a working parent I have to push through it even more!

Lumie Iris 500 Bodyclock

I first ran this review back in November 2015, but as I am still using the Iris every single day and we have since added the Active 250 to our collection, I felt it was time to refresh it a little.  Before I get into the joys of the Iris 500 I thought I’d share a little project Lumie are working on with Leeds University.

This Plus That Equals…. A New Year

This plus that equals…. a new year

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. 2017 is here, I can barely believe it, I swear I only blinked and a year just disappeared. I’m not really one for a New Year’s resolution, though I can see why so many people are, nothing like a new year for a fresh start. I just don’t tend to be that organised. I do, however, have a few hopes and dreams for the coming year.

Our Christmas Break at Bluestone

We have never been away at Christmas time before, not once. But with work being a bit stressful and all the upheaval we have gone through recently I couldn’t have been happier when Bluestone got in touch to see if we would like to stay for a few nights.

Christmas Holiday Fun

A holiday park with a difference, Bluestone is set in a beautiful National Park in Pembrokeshire, Wales. We loved Pembrokeshire last time we visited, and were familiar with the area There is loads to see and do, plenty of walking, attractions and a truly stunning coastline. We were so excited to be returning, especially as Bluestone had everything we needed, right there, there would be no additional travelling, spending or time. Just a few days to kick back and relax. Oh and Christmas was in full swing which was really exciting. All the December breaks included tickets to ‘The Kingdom of the Elves’.

Christmas Gift Guide 2016 – Want

So you know I love buying Christmas gifts for people, sometimes in can be tough to find the right thing though.

As I mentioned earlier, I love the idea of giving something that someone wants, something they need and then a little something to eat or drink. It keeps the gift giving under control and means the recipient gets a lovely mix of things.

I’ve already covered, eat and drink ideas for you, today is all about things people want. Continue reading Christmas Gift Guide 2016 – Want

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

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

This Plus That Equals…. My Favourite Norfolk Walks

This plus that equals…. My Favourite Norfolk Walks

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is a list of my favourite walks in Norfolk. We’re off to Lincoln for a long weekend, when husb asked what I wanted to do, I literally had no clue other than to get out for some good, long, at a decent pace, walks. It can be hard to do with a toddler sometimes.

So I’d been looking for some walking inspiration in and around Lincoln and it got me thinking of my favourite places to walk at home in sunny Norfolk, especially now we have L.
