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

I have been eyeing up the pot of hummus in our fridge with a sense of doom. This one pot could be my downfall in my Zero Food Waste Week challenge. Once opened it really needs to be consumed within 3 days however the shop bought pots are pretty big so unless you plan to only eat hummus for 3 days there’s a fair chance that you are going to have some leftover.Read More »10 Uses for Leftover Hummus

One of the great things about moving to a new area is that you have lots of new places to discover. It also means that you don’t have to travel far for your next holiday.

We had sun, sea and spectacular views! What more could you want?Read More »Ladram Bay Holiday Park Review
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.

I’m making a start with our beauty and bathroom products.Read More »Organic Skincare – Delight Touch Review
This Easter holidays we were invited along to Beverley Holidays in Paignton for a mini break. It was perfect timing as far as I was concerned as the Easter holidays are always a tough one as the other half is away a lot; manically trying to get the boat ready to go back in the water for the start of the boating season. This gave us something to look forward to and an opportunity to spend some time together as a family.
Today I thought I would share our experience with you.Read More »Beverley Holidays Review – Mini Break in Paignton
