I'll start of this post by saying this is a post about periods, if words like blood and vagina freak you out you then might I suggest you read something else. If however you would like to learn how you can save money on your period every month while also reducing your household waste then read on.
Zero Waste Week
I was inspired to write this post because of the theme for this years Zero Waste Week which is 'Reuse'. I started to think about products that we use in the house and what we could start reusing instead ...continue reading →
Over the past month I have been trialling a product called Skinade which is a drink filled with collagen. You can read about how this started in my Better Skin Comes From Within post.

I have been a blogger for nearly 4 years now and over that period of time I have had my fair share of emails from PR companies. On average I receive between 15 and 20 email pitches per week. Some great, some okay and some just plain weird! Seriously you would be amazed at some of the pitches I have received.
Last week we visited the newly revamped Beefeater at Marsh Mills in Plymouth. The other half regularly meets there for business meetings but we have never eaten in there before so we were excited to see what they had to offer and check out the new decor.

As I'm a bit of a Pinterest addict I started a linky a while ago called Pinterest Passion. I haven't run it for a while for a variety of reasons (the main one being time) but today I thought I'd start it up again.
It's really simple to enter, you just add your link to your Pinterest account and go and follow anyone else that joins in and that's it!
I very rarely use any kind of beauty products. I believe that they are not only a complete waste of money but also very misleading. There seems to be a cream for everything these days from wrinkle reducers to skin perfecters. All these products do is cost you a lot of money and clog up your pores not to mention the amount of unnatural substances that you are smothering into you skin. Can you tell I'm not a fan?
