With all the festivities that have been occuring in the house I thought it was time to sort the husband out with a little something to review. Despite the dark, cold and wet conditions that have come with the changing seasons he still loves to go for a run in the morning but it can be a struggle to find a decent sports sock for him. So he’s been trying out the Avoalre Athletic Socks.Continue reading Avoalre Athletic Socks
An embarrassingly long time ago now I was sent a wonderful food hamper from Organico, containing a good selection of their organic foods.
We got pasta, olives, breadsticks, sauces, a risotto mix and more. All of it organic and all of it delicious.Continue reading Hero Foods from Organico
One thing we have always done with L is to make sure he has a daily multivitamin. It’s a habit we got into at an early age and one I hope continues into his later life. Recently we’ve been trying two of the supplements on offer from Higher Nature.Continue reading Higher Nature Kids Supplements
Just before L broke up for the Easter Holidays he trotted home telling me that you could actually eat Nettles! He was amazed. How do they not sting you? What do they taste like? Why would you want to? The timing was rather apt as I had just received my samples of Emunity, a detox health drink that contains Nettle for its healing and immunity-boosting benefits.Continue reading Emunity Detox Soft Drink Review
With the kids back at school I’m thinking more and more about handwashing and antibacterial hand gel again. Its been ok whilst he’s been home because I’m there to monitor everything and have plenty of moisturiser. I can’t be there all the time though. We’ve recently been using the Anti-Bacterial Slime from Canal Toys and it’s been fun.Continue reading Canal Anti-Bacterial Slime
Omega-3 helps keep our hearts, brains and vision healthy, great! But how do we make sure we’re getting enough of it? What even is enough of it? Do we just have to eat all the fish? What if you don’t like fish? Or you need to eat so much of it you run out of time to eat other things? Helpfully Bioglan are here to help in a practical way.Continue reading Taking the Bioglan Omega-3 Challenge
Well that’s it, we are solidly into 2020 and all the excesses of Christmas and New Year have me feeling like I might actually now be more cheese than human, with chocolate flowing through my veins and a good dose of mince pie in there somewhere too.
I’m not going on some massive health kick now it’s January, I just genuinely find myself craving something a little lighter, a bit more savoury and generally healthier when I find myself reaching for the snacks.Continue reading Healthier Snacks Post Christmas
Child or adult the back to school season is stressful. There is a lot to get organised and a lot of change. You would have thought L starting reception last year and having gone through a year of school I would be ready for Year 1 but I am just not.Continue reading Helping Back to School Stress with Zenflore
We know that as the sun comes out we all crawl off the sofa and outdoors for some much needed vitamin D. With this comes family adventures through the forest or runs on the beach, but with all this fun often comes cuts and scrapes.
This summer L has ditched the stabilisers so we’re literally just waiting for the first tumble and grazed elbows and knees. Plus we are literally living in a building site at the moment!Continue reading Summer Healing with Elastoplast
