Purelosophy – Review and Personal Revelation

Purelosophy is a range of drinks made all-natural Alpine water boosted with herbal ingredients to help prepare your day both mentally and physically. I’ve been impressed. More than impressed actually.

Purelosophy is exactly the kind of product I love. It’s natural. Beautifully packaged. It fits really well with the calming and mindfulness practises I enjoy. It couldn’t be more of a ‘me’ thing if it tried.

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
