Over a year ago I decided to make the switch from disposable sanitary products to reusable ones in a bid to help reduce my household waste. For anyone that isn’t familiar with reusable pads they work under the same principle as reusable nappies, in that you use them and then you wash them to use again. Granted this isn’t to everyone’s taste but personally I would never switch back to disposables now. Read More »Bloom & Nora Reusable Sanitary Pads Review
I have long been a fan of natural beauty trends, in fact pretty much everything I use now is natural. I really don’t like the thought of putting chemicals on my hair or skin; I believe it can be detrimental to your long term health, therefore I’m constantly on the lookout for new natural beauty products to try.

I have been dyeing my hair since I was about 13. It has been many crazy colours over the years ranging from black to blonde. However, now I’m a ‘proper’ grown up I tend to just stick to light blonde. It’s no secret that I favour natural beauty products wherever possible. I even went 7 months without washing my hair with shampoo.Read More »Switching to Natural Hair Dye
As well as my ‘trying to live a simpler life mission’ I have also been looking into switching all of the beauty products we use for natural and organic products. I hate the amount of chemicals that our skin is exposed to on a daily basis, from shampoos to washing powders. In the ideal world I’d like to get rid of everything bad in our house but that is going to take time to make the switch. I’m making a start with our beauty and bathroom products.Read More »Organic Skincare – Delight Touch Review
The concept of zero waste is something that I have been interested in for a long time now, right back to my uni days in Wales. However, I find even thinking about the process overwhelming. I mean where do you start?
When you actually start to take note of how much waste your family produces on a daily, weekly and monthly basis I think you’d be shocked by what you saw.

I’m currently in the process of switching from disposable sanitary pads to reusable ones. If you scroll to the bottom of this post you’ll find links to my experiences so far. As I got on so well testing my first reusable night time pad I decided to try some daytime pads as well.
Over the past month I have been trialling a product called Skinade which is a drink filled with collagen. You can read about how this started in my Better Skin Comes From Within post.

I very rarely use any kind of beauty products. I believe that they are not only a complete waste of money but also very misleading. There seems to be a cream for everything these days from wrinkle reducers to skin perfecters. All these products do is cost you a lot of money and clog up your pores not to mention the amount of unnatural substances that you are smothering into you skin. Can you tell I’m not a fan?
