    Bunty Pet Products Review: Rum’s New Love

    If you’re a regular reader of Rock Paper Spirit, you’ll know that I adore my dog, Rum. He’s a wee cracker. Rum is an almost four year old Jack Russell and he’s not just a pet. He’s part of the family, the best therapist I could ask for and he is also an influencer in his own right. That’s correct, you didn’t misread that. The biggest fee I’ve ever commanded for my freelance writing on this site was brought in by Rum. It’s a special kind of dog who can contribute to the running of his human’s household, isn’t it? This week, Rum received another gift through the post from…

    Milkshakes from Jude’s Review

    When I was younger, I used to live on milkshakes. Literally. But that’s a story for another time. Today I’m reviewing a particular brand of shake. To me, milkshakes are that mix of nostalgia for your childhood and a sweet treat that makes you feel a wee bit naughty when you’re a proper grown up because they’re so creamy. One of the reasons why I don’t have milkshakes as often as I used to is because they take so long to make and they’re high in calories. Step forward, Jude’s Milkshakes, who take both those concerns away. I received a gift of three cans of the milkshake from Jude’s so…

    Adagio Teas Review

    As a blogger, I’m given the opportunity to try some really interesting product that I wouldn’t otherwise have heard of if I wasn’t blogging. One of those products is Adagio Teas. And to my shame, I received a huge box of Adagio Teas and brewing accessories as a gift way back in June and this is me just getting around to writing the review. This is partly because the box was absolutely massive and it’s taken time to get through them all, and partly because I have been trying to find my feet, firstly in the new job and then having left the new job. But that’s a story for…

    Rum’s Pethood Story – Sponsored by Petplan

    This post is in conjuction with Petplan but all thoughts are my own. ADVERTISEMENT I’ve never made a secret of my love for my dog, Rum. In fact, he’s probably the best friend I’ve ever had. I’ve written blog posts about him before and he even has his own Instagram page where he’s slowly building a loyal following of people who love him just as much as I do. Our relationship began in October 2015. My family was going through a particularly rocky time. We needed something positive to focus on and it happened when a family friend called and said that her dog, Tiegan, had just given birth to…

    Everlast Rocketbooks – Review and Giveaway

    I don’t know if all writers feel this way, but I am totally in love with stationery. My house is full of it. I probably have way too much. One item in particular that I completely obsess over is notebooks. You can never have enough in my opinion and I’ve tried so many different kinds, from the budget ones, to cutesy fashion notebooks to expensive artisan types. They’re all good in my opinion. Since becoming a student and starting to take blogging seriously, I’ve been looking for notebooks that offer a little more than just a piece of paper to write on. I’ve tried some smart notebooks before and been…
