Month: April 2016

  • 30 Days Wild – 30th April

    Another cloudscape for today – this one was a particularly dark cloud that was heading from the north west. No sooner had we spotted the cloud, there was a very bright flash of lightning and an incredibly loud rumble of thunder. The local nesting birds seemed to take it all in their stride, but we were […]

  • Baked Alaska Soap

    Baked Alaska Soap

    Another soap from the Christmas 2015 range, Baked Alaska was particularly eyecatching cut open in the store, with its frosted white exterior hiding a vibrant multicoloured interior. Baked Alaska has a very strong lemony aroma, which is suitably refreshing to use as a bath soap – I think it would be a bit too overpowering as a […]

  • 30 Days Wild – day 3 (25/4)

    #30dayswild has been organised by the Wildlife Trusts, to try and get as many people connecting with nature during the month of June. To get into the swing of things, I’ve decided to start early, and add in some Wild blogging in April and May. 25th April I really love cloudscapes, and probably have hundreds of cloud […]

  • Honey I Washed My Hair (original version)

    Honey I Washed My Hair (original version)

    Honey I Washed My Hair might not be the most creative name in the world, but the shampoo bar is fantastic! I was a little concerned that the honey might be inclined to make my hair greasy, but it doesn’t have that effect. Smelling strongly of toffee and fudge, it’s a little more intense in aroma […]

  • 30 Days Wild – day 2 (15/4)

    The weather wasn’t all that great today, drizzly rain, heavy rain, and lots of clouds. But that didn’t stop the local Buzzard from making an appearance. This time I wasn’t able to see the bird, but I did hear it – the unmistakable screeching call as it soars effortlessly over the fields. There’s a pair of Buzzards […]

  • 30 Days Wild – day 1 (14/4)

    #30dayswild has been organised by the Wildlife Trusts, to try and get as many people connecting with nature during the month of June. To see if I can achieve blogging about that every day for a month, I decided to have a test run starting today! 14th April I heard an bird outside that I didn’t […]

  • Yog Nog Soap

    Yog Nog Soap

    Before I start, I will just point out that Yog Nog is a seasonal soap, and is currently not available for sale. However, it has been in the Christmas range for at least the last 2 years, and I hope it’ll be there for years to come too! Yog Nog is a pretty strange name for […]

  • Lush Kitchen Facebook Contest

    Lush Kitchen Facebook Contest

    In the week of Good Friday, Lush Kitchen held a contest on their Facebook page – whoever spotted the What Came First? bath bomb that was hiding in the photos, and posted first, got a prize. Much to my amazement, I was one of the lucky prize winners, and my package arrived this morning! The postman commented […]
