Hay Max – A drug-free alternative for hay fever sufferers

Recently my delightful Daisy hit me in the eye, twice. This meant that I suffered an injury to my eye. While I was in the eye A&E, having my eye reviewed, I was informed that I was suffering from hay fever too. Now I had been having hay fever symptoms for a few weeks, but I was also under the weather. This means that I missed the onset of the symptoms really. Anyway, when I got home from the hospital this great kit from Hay Max was waiting for me – perfect timing!

Our Hush Mattress review

Recently we have been fortunate enough to be gifted with a Hush mattress. I’m going to share with you not only what we think of the Hush mattress, so far, but why I felt we needed a new bed anyway. As a parent a bed is SO important. Particularly as there is never enough hours in the day to lay in it! A Hush mattress comes in a teeny tiny box and then it opens out into a delightful comfortable mattress. If you don’t want to read my tangent just skip to the end for a little video of the unpacking in action!

Our Purrfectbox Review

My regular readers may remember that recently we received a Purrfectbox for our cats, Izzy and Jazz. We’ve been cat owners for 6 years now, when we received Izzy. Jazz joined us 4 years ago and they’ve been almost silently hating each other ever since. Despite this I still buy them lots of treats regularly and I never give up on my quest to make them friends. Playing with new toys regularly can keep my girls from fighting overnight. This makes for a better sleep for me and a more harmonious life for us all! Today I’m sharing my Purrfectbox Review with you and talking about this subscription box service.

Goodlife Review: Veggies are not so bad after all!

I’ve had an unusual relationship with vegetables over the years. First I was a non meat eater, otherwise known as a vegetarian, however I didn’t eat many vegetables. Then I was a meat eater who also didn’t eat many vegetables. Now for the last 5 years or so I’ve started to love vegetables. My favourite vegetables are mostly the ones I’m growing at my allotment this year. Potatoes, onions, spinach, broccoli, parsnips etc. I love a nice root vegetable. There are others that I like too. But these are my favourite. Anyway, in my quest to try more vegetables, and vegetable based meals, I said yes to reviewing some products from Goodlife.
