    Go Henry Review

    One of the biggest challenges I’ve faced as a parent of a growing boy is how to teach him the value of money. He’s very lucky that he’s never had to want for anything in his short life. Not only does he have me and his dad financing him, but he also has his own money too. He’s got more savings than we have. So, it’s really important to teach him how to be responsible with money. In today’s world, where cash is used less and less, we decided to teach him about debit cards at an early age. We shopped around and decided to get a Go Henry card.…

    Clinique Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator

    Over the weekend, I was talking to someone on Twitter about how long I had been blogging. I go way back to 2005 when I blogged on MSN Spaces about travel. I moved that travel blog to MySpace in 2007 and a couple of years later, it became a lifestyle blog on Blogspot. After being a book blogger for a couple of years, I then moved into beauty in 2013 and that was a culture shock. More on that in another post but there was this thing that beauty bloggers did back then where they would post pictures of their empty bottles and tubes of products they were using or…

    Dr.’s Remedy Nail Polish and Remover – With Garlic?! – Review

    Today I want to share a story about my experiences with Dr.’s Remedy nail care products. Believe it or not, this blog started as an ethical beauty website, so perhaps this is me going back to basics? I would consider myself to be a girlie-girl, even if I’m not someone who is always caked in make-up. In fact, the only make-up I wear on a daily basis is eyebrow powder, on account of me not really having any eye-brows. I’ll wear lipstick 90% of the time but everything else? I can take it or leave it. If I wore make-up every day, how would I look any different when I’m…

    Do Smell Dreams Exist?

    I woke up this morning and entered something into my Ecosia search bar that I honestly never thought I would type. Do smell dreams exist? I ask this because over the last few weeks, something about my nocturnal thoughts and experiences has changed. Maybe it’s the diet that I’m on that’s changing the chemistry of my brain. Maybe my own mind is trying to tell me something or get some point across. Maybe it’s all hormonal. After all, the last time I had some weird dream experiences, I was pregnant. I am turning 40 this year and I already knew I was perimenopausal. This blog is being written to hopefully…

    The Lazy Girl’s Guide To Saving The Planet

    It’s the hot topic for January 2020, isn’t it? Everywhere you go there’s people preaching to you about how to live your life better. Go vegan. Drive electric. Ban plastic. In fact, just cancel farting while you’re at it because that’s methane. Which is evil AF. The thing is, I’m really concerned about what’s happening to the planet, and how fast it’s happening, because there’s a good chance that me and my son will still be here in 50 years time and possibly even some grandchildren too but I don’t want to lose the joy in life and I certainly don’t want holier-than-thou-save-the-world types preaching at me constantly. Here is…
