My Darling Lemon Thyme

I love cookbooks, apart from finding a new recipe I actually enjoy just reading them and the stories behind the recipes, the lovely thick pages, beautiful photography, in a nutshell they make me happy. I was reading a blog post about 6 months ago and it was about a cookbook called My Darling Lemon Thyme. It was an amazing, glowing post, telling me that this cookbook would pretty much change my life. I needed it. So much so, that I decided I had to have this book in my life immediately. I...

Clay moulding

I have been on Pinterest alot lately. But for me, being on Pinterest is a much better use of ‘wind down’ time than TV. I feel refreshed, inspired and feel whipped up into a creative frenzy. Out come the lists for the next day, and what I need to buy for my craft project that just cannot wait a moment longer. So the other day I got onto clay moulding shapes for gift tags (it’s a thing – everything is on Pinterest) and decided I needed to do it right then and there. Only...

Lips In Summer Rain

I love wearing lipstick for the instant pick-me-up it gives me, however, I hate the ingredients in some brands.

Every Living Nature product undergoes rigorous testing for purity and...

Bunny Treat Jars

I LOVE finding a new blog to follow, and while I was looking on Pinterest for Easter treat ideas I came across this blog and the perfect Easter craft for me. I quickly ‘bookmarked’ the blog home page and rushed to the shops for the paints and to the Salvation Army for cheap glass bottles, because, you know, I must do new projects like yesterday. For once I actually followed the instructions pretty much to the letter, and was very happy with the results! Super cute bunny jars filled...

Bare Naturals Launch!

So this is the first year I can really remember that I have stuck to my New Years Resolutions. Like, ever. I used to do a massive list that was pretty much unattainable. Not this year, no sirie. I made a whopping 3 New Years Resolutions, and hurrah, I’m kind of doing them! One of them was to do less thinking about things and more action and I have really been pushing myself to action the things I say I will. This is actually surprisingly (or not surprising to most of you) very time consuming....

DIY Bath Salts

Oh. My. Aching. Muscles. Boot Camp. Yes, that all needed a full stop after each word so I can fully make my point. I love boot camp – but sheesh it can be hard work (surprise surprise). But I’m sure you all know that already. So after last weeks particularly hard session, I mixed up some bath salts to help my poor muscles. These are so easy to make and the look great all done up with a cute tag. You can add different kinds of essential oils – whatever takes your fancy. I did...
