Happy New Beer – Taproom Event

To banish the January blues those lovely chaps at local brewery company Farmageddon will be having a taproom event at an actual brewery at the end of the month. And I have it on good authority that the prices will be cheap because they brew it all themselves. Even better, if you share the Facebook…

The Empties

Do you know, I think this might actually be my first empties post? I was inspired to do one after this by my blogger pal A Life of Style. Anyway, firstly I’ve noticed that this is quite Clarins heavy. I apologize for that but these products are ones that I used to the very end….

My Don’t Buy List

The Don’t Buy List OK first things first, this isn’t me holding a grudge against anyone. As a blogger and media professional I know I’m incredibly lucky to be sent a lot of free stuff. But just because it’s free, doesn’t make it good. Of course others will have used these products and loved them,…

New beauty favourite – Hempz

A package of rather unprepossessing stuff dropped through my door the other day. Hempz has been around for 20 years but it’s mostly an American brand. It won’t surprise you that these are beauty products created from hemp seed oil. And no, you will not enjoy yourself if you roll this stuff up and smoke…
