    DietBet Review – My Own Experience

    Six months ago, I stood on the scales and was shocked. I weighed more than I had ever weighed (without having had a baby in the last year – baby weight totally doesn’t count) and I wanted to do something about it. The problem was, I was too light for Weight Watchers or Slimming World or any of the other clubs and groups. I didn’t know how I was going to lose this weight. I had been dabbling with a site called Weight Loss Resources for a while, but found that because there was no accountability involved, ie I wasn’t going to a class or group and nobody cared if…

    Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser Review

    Another beauty review today, and that’s because I’ve got yet another empty bottle in my bathroom! The second empty is Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser. This is different from the last blog I wrote in that this is for a premium product. Some would call it mid-range, (I used to!) but those people have got too much money to burn. I’m on Carer’s Allowance and I think this is bloody expensive. Annoyingly, I couldn’t find it on Amazon for less than $60, but I can assure you, when I bought it, it was around £20 in my local department store, which is still pricey. If you’re not put off by that…

    Oilatum Daily Junior Bath Foam Review

    Today I’m going to write a blog that is one of those rare cross-over blogs that covers parenting AND beauty… I’m not sure how to explain that but it is a cosmetic product that is also medicinal, that I use as part of my parenting. You’ll see what I mean when you read on. In keeping with the theme of writing about anything I use in the bathroom once the tub is empty (because that means that it’s been good enough to use until the end), I’m going to review Oilatum Daily Junior Bath Foam. Disclaimer: I was gifted a bottle of this last year for free in exchange for…

    Inflata Nation Glasgow Review

    As a parent of a super-energetic little boy, I’m always on the lookout for things we can do together as a family. It’s getting more difficult as he gets older, not easier as I thought it would be. That’s because we’re now at the stage where we’ve done most of the things we want to do in this area and we’re running out of new activities to try. But recently I was invited along to try Inflata Nation in Glasgow. It’s a soft play with a difference. Basically a building filled with bouncy castles, inflatables and all things bouncy – a kind of inflatable theme park. Heaven for kids like…

    Instax Mini Review

    In December 2018, I didn’t know what to ask for as a Christmas present. I’m pretty lucky in that I had been able to buy myself everything that I wanted or needed throughout the year and there wasn’t much that was lacking in my life. So, I had no idea that my husband was going to buy me an Instax Mini 9 camera. I never had a Polaroid camera in my younger years, although I always wanted one. I was delighted to finally be able to have instant photos. That’s why I thought I would write a review of this camera. There may be others wanting to buy it who…
