So in about a year I am going to be a bridesmaid for my little sister. This is just the kind of goal I need to start losing some weight and getting healthier, which all ties in nicely with my quest to be a calmer, happier and healthier person.
I have decided to vlog about my journey as that will give me a visual reminder of where I’ve been and where I am and as it’s something that makes me rather uncomfortable it will also help to keep me in check. Plus it’s always good to push yourself.
As part of my attempts to lose weight and get more active ready for Bridesmaid duties last year I have been sent a fitness tracker and connected bathroom scales from Terraillon.
Terraillon are a housewares brand, who design and make health and well-being products and have a whole range of connected devices that link to their Wellness Coach app. There are kitchen and bathroom scales, activity trackers, and blood pressure monitors.
When I started my little project to be a healthier, slimmer and fitter Bridesmaid next year, it wasn’t just about diet to help me lose weight but also about adding exercise into my routine.
As I’m not one for massive amounts of exercise I was pleased when Deep Heat got in touch kindly suggesting they send me on of their new Muscle Massage Roll-On’s, just in case I were to need it. Continue reading Deep Heat Roll On→
When I started blogging two years ago the aim was to help me find a way, any way, to stay at home. I tried a few different things, took a few courses and found myself working as a Social Media Manager. I was able to leave my admin job and am now officially self employed. I thought I would start sharing some of the things I have learnt along the way.
Being self employed can often mean a lot of work pitching for little reward, even worse are the times when you are offered a job that never actually materialises.
I have already been lucky enough to review a couple of the Boxcitement Subscription Boxes and I loved them, so I was more than happy to take a peak at the Animal Magic Box they sent out last month.
If you missed my previous reviews Boxcitement is a subscription box service that sends you a letterbox friendly box filled with lovely things, designed to excite, perfect for people who love to give gifts and receive them too, with cards, stationery, jewellery, the cute and the kitsch.

Have you heard of ActiPatch? It’s amazing, I’ve been using it for nearly two years now. It is great for parents who have bad backs from wrestling with squirmy babies and toddlers, superb for sporty types and all those muscular injuries, in fact it’s great for everyone.
It is a drug-free device that uses electromagnetic pulse therapy to stimulate nerves to repair, so can’t be used when pregnant, but pretty much anyone else is good to go and priced at £19.99, which is a lot cheaper than painkillers when you consider this will last for up to 720 hours!

Oh yes, Spring had sprung, everything is lighter and brighter and that makes everyone happier. Daylight is clearly an important thing.
With that in mind you can understand why I love Lumie so much.
We’re big fans of Lumie in our house, I use the Desk Lamp at my workspace and my husband has been using the Iris Bodyclock which also works as an aromatherapy diffuser, so when we were sent the Active 250 to review, with it’s radio and white noise functions it made sense to me that I nabbed the other half’s Iris which I had been lusting over and he used the Active 250.
