Degustabox April 2017 box – Find out what’s inside!

I love my Degustabox! Each month a nice box of goodies arrives for me, usually on Wednesday. I look forward to being able to see what is inside and the surprise of not knowing. Most months I really love the contents of the box, although occasionally there are a few products I don’t likeI have the Degustabox April 2017 box to review and there WILL be spoilers in this post!

Everything5Pounds – is it actually any good?

For a while now I’ve been looking at the Everything5Pounds website and wondering.. is it actually any good? For those of you who don’t know Everything5Pounds is a clothing website, that also sells homewares and toys. They have clothing for men, women and children. Every single item that they sell is… you’ve guessed it! £5 pounds. That is £5 for dresses, shoes, homeware and more. Just £5! 

I don’t know about you but I kept thinking that things were going to be super super poor quality. I mean £5 doesn’t buy you anything in a high street store, well, perhaps Primark. Anyway, I decided to give Everything5Pounds a go so that I could report back and show you some of my new clothes.

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!

This huge box was full of a number of Hay Max products, in various scents.

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.

This is Izzy. Izzy can destroy almost any toy in 2 minutes or less.
