Saints & Slimmers Review & Competition

When I restarted my diet blog last year you may remember I mentioned doing the 5:2 diet, well I had good results on it, but due to my Endometriosis and the side effects associated I decided not to bother continuing with the updates.  I have however maintained dieting when my symptoms were slightly more settled.

One of the problems I did encounter was making meals that fit within the calorie count, however when I found the website Saints & Slimmers it solved my dilemma.  They are a fab brand that offers a range of diets and products to suit everyone without having a hefty price tag, with a that team includes a range of product experts and nutritionists, so you know you are in good hands with their plans.  

I was lucky enough to receive a package including a range of their products to try out and I have to say I am very impressed.  As I'm a bit of a snacker I did favour the crisps and pretzels, but the soups and milkshake were also delicious.  

Instead of taking my word for it though they are offering one lucky reader the chance to win a 5:2 Monthly Diet Plan, so if you fancy your chances just enter via the Rafflecopter. 

Good luck!!

A Beautiful Life - VitaBella Review

In my old age (mid twenties counts as old right??) I've been veering towards more natural products when possible, so when the lovely people over at Vitabella offered to send me some products to try I could barely contain myself.

Inspired by Italian nature their products contain olive oil and aloe vera, and if my 94 year old part Italian Grandad is anything to go by these products work well both when eaten and smothered on your skin.

I received the Spa Treatment in a Box, which included a face mask and a tub of anti aging cream.  The process of the mask was a fun novelty, pouring the serum onto the mask and watching it swell up before applying it to the face, and leaving to work its magic.   I have to say my skin felt amazing afterwards, to the point where I couldn't stop stroking my face and fortunately the results have lasted even after a week later.  The tub of cream that tops us the hydration  from the mask may look small, but I've been using it twice daily and still have more than half left even after 7 days.

Overall its clear to see why this brand has won awards and been featured in Cosmopolitan, it has made its way up there to one of my favourite facial treatments and I will be looking to purchasing the leg cream in time for summer!


P.S It's Mothers Day soon and this would make an excellent gift!

P.P.S I did take a photo of myself wearing the mask but I looked slightly like Michael Myers so will keep it to myself ;)

** These products were gifted to me but my opinions were 100% honest

Life Lately

So once again several weeks have passed since my last post and suddenly it's March, this year is passing way too quickly.  Since my last post I have been busy making lots of new products, practicing my silversmithing at Uni ready for a new line of sterling silver pieces and then today I had a craft fair in the lovely village of Uppermill.

I plan to keep up to date with my blogging this week so will keep this short and sweet, enjoy the rest of your weekend!
