After what seems like the longest winter ever and the never ending stop, start, stop, start spring I’m ready for some better weather. I am ready for summer. The only downside can be getting to sleep in the heat, and whilst as an adult I can make do in most situations my boy finds it really hard. That is why we are looking forward to trying out our new cooling blanket from Luxear.

Using Slate in the Home
If you are looking at starting a home renovation project or are currently in the middle of one, you might well have noticed that the price of materials has skyrocketed. The latest figures show that a new build house project costs have increased from an average of £1000 per square metre to £2500 per square metre, that is a huge jump. To put this into context, a decent sized 100 square metre property will now cost you £500k to build. Not only have costs risen in raw materials and skilled labour, also the range of products available to buy in the UK has dropped, especially for natural materials, like slate.Continue reading Using Slate in the Home

A Treat From Lands’ End
I love a jumper. It’s the best bit about the cold weather but I often struggle with finding a nice warm jumper that I can wear comfortably under a coat. Something warm yet thin, soft and definitely not scratchy. If it looks good that’s also a bonus!
Recently the guys at Lands’ End asked if I’d like to try one of their cashmere jumpers out, it was an easy decision to say yes but a lot harder to actually choose which one I wanted to go for, they are all so nice. Classic designs that are perfect for me and a stunning choice of colours and patterns.
Learning with Oaka Books Topic Packs – Review
Just before the start of the October Half Term we were sent a bundle of Oaka Books Topic packs. I was allowed to select a handful of packs to try at home with L. Helping to make learning fun, easy and engaging they were just what we needed.
Hoopsy is a new brand of eco pregnancy test, they make midstream eco pregnancy tests made of 99% paper – so they’re much kinder to the planet than the average test.
Now I am not in need of pregnancy tests, nor will I be in the future but I do remember taking them. Lots of them! Even when I was actively trying to get pregnant I remember feeling how wasteful the tests were, caked in plastic and not remotely recyclable, I actually moved to the little dip strips but it’s fair to say they are not quite as nice to use. Having looked at the tests Hoopsy have sent me these are actually an excellent alternative.Continue reading Hoopsy

Quntis Screen Light Bar
Poor lighting. Eye strain. Headaches. It will be a familiar sounding story to a lot of people and it’s not just because a lot of us were thrust into working from home unexpectedly, harsh overhead lights in the office can be just as bad as the dim 20 watt bulb you chucked in the spare room that was barely used before you turned it into an office, just grateful you had the space.Continue reading Quntis Screen Light Bar
