    Minced Beef Hotpot & Samuel Groves Cookware Review

    There’s something really comforting about an easy one-pot dinner. This Minced Beef Hotpot recipe is just that! When Samuel Groves kindly asked me to review one of their pans I had to choose their casserole pan! The best things about Samuel Groves pans is the fact you can go from hob to oven without having to switch cookware. I was sent the 20cm Stainless Steel Casserole Pan & Lid from their Classic Range. I decided this Minced Beef Hotpot would be the perfect recipe to try the pan out and I wasn’t wrong! It comes packaged in a Samuel Groves named box and inside that was a natural hessian bag.…

    Wonder Balm – A Pony Called Steve To The Rescue!

    I’ve been lucky enough to review items from A Pony Called Steve in the past. I absolutely love what they do and I find the girls so much fun to follow on Instagram too. Just before Christmas, they asked me if I’d tried their new Wonder Balm. Me being honest, and said I hadn’t seen much from them as I had been having a social media break. I knew nothing about said Wonder Balm so they very kindly offered to send me some as a gift. I was under no obligation to post a review but I really wanted to, read on and you’ll realise why. About a week after…

    Lavera Natural Makeup Review

    I was gifted a range of makeup products by Lavera and this is my honest review. I’ve been following Lavera on Instagram for a while now as I am really interested in natural products. I try to use as many as I can as they tend to be better for my skin and the environment too. Lavera’s products are 100% certified as natural and the do a huge range of makeup and skin products. Some of the products are Vegan Certified too but you’ll have to check their website to be sure of which ones. I am a little obsessed with makeup so when they asked me what I wanted…

    October 18 Glossybox – Halloween Treat Box

    I know I say this every month but how is it October already!? This year seems to have flown by and I have no idea how it’s almost over. But on to the October 18 Glossybox anyway. October of course means Halloween so there were 2 boxes up for grabs this month. I received the Treat Box and having seen the Trick one, I’d rather have had that but oh well! I still liked this box. It is definitely a pretty box, there’s no denying that! It appeals to my inner goth sooooooo much! Which is also why I’m a little gutted I didn’t get the Trick box. That contained…

    The JoJo Hairbrush Review

    We’ve all heard of or seen JoJo Bows, even if you have no idea who this JoJo is. Well she’s a dancer, just in case you did wonder. She found fame on the American TV series Dance Mom’s, which is exactly what her mother wanted for her. Got to give it to the kid though, she’s done well! Children across the country went mad for JoJo Bows when they were first released and my daughter was no different. She has a couple of different sized ones and they are still worn regularly. You can imagine her excitement when I revealed the new double sided brush I had been sent! We…

    September 18 Glossybox Review

    I can’t believe we’re at the end of September already! Where is this year going? September is of course “back to school” month so the September 18 Glossybox theme follows that. The items are handbag and beauty essentials that can help you get back on track and into the school run routine again. I really like this month’s box, it was nice to have such a mix of products. Here’s what was in it: We’ll go left to right this month and start with… Grow Gorgeous – Scalp Detox We’re actually starting with the product I like the least. It’s like a scrub for your scalp, designed to remove impurities…

    A Pony Called What? – Product Review

    Am I the only person that still has smellies left over from Christmas? Over 8 months later and I still have a few but I’m a little sick of smelling like my Nan’s favourite flowery scent. Again, is that just me that ends up with “lavender” or “white lily”? Don’t get me wrong, I love lilies, they’re my favourite flower but have you ever really smelt one? If I have fresh ones in the house I spend a good day or so wondering who’s done a wee in the kitchen! Old fashioned smells are something of the past now though. I have swapped out a couple of my current products…

    Skinny Unicorn – Weightloss Coffee Review

    There’s always mixed reviews on “weightloss” and “detox” beverages and I do truly believe you have to be careful when you decide to try one. They are all different and some do have unwanted side effects. I’ve tried a detox tea before which it on really well with so when Skinny Unicorn asked me to try their coffee I couldn’t say no! I love coffee so I knew I wouldn’t struggle to use this! I did check over the ingredients first and there’s nothing in there I can’t read, which is always a good sign. The thing that stood out to me the most was that it had coconut in…

    XO Balm Review

    I was asked to trial XO Balm as I get patches of dry skin on my arms and legs at times. I use moisturiser pretty religiously after a shower or bath in order to stop them from getting too bad. So when I got offered the chance to try a multi-use, natural balm of course I jumped at it. Natural products are a big thing for me these days; shampoo, soaps, you name it, I’ll try it! I just feel like it’s nicer to know what you’re putting on your skin and hair rather than using something with a million ingredients that you can’t read. Yes they are slightly more…

    Uber Sonic – Toothbrush Review

    Uber Sonic aren’t a brand I’d ever heard of before. Let’s face it though, unless it’s made by Colgate or Braun, I’m not going to know of any other electric toothbrush makes as they’re not constantly shoved in your face. Still, I jumped at the chance to give this a go as I actually still lived in the dark ages and had a manual toothbrush! Uber Sonic promote themselves as the iPhone of the toothbrush world as the body is made from lightweight brushed aluminium, the same as the phones. It looks really modern and is indeed lightweight and comfortable to hold. The interchangeable plastic heads are a little wider…
