    Beards and Daisies Indoor Plants

    Beards and Daisies Indoor Plants   My grandmother was a green-fingered genius. In fact, she could literally make anything grow.   I, on the other hand, seem to have less luck (or skill) with plants. I do okay for a bit and then things can go horribly wrong. So when I received a beautiful plant from Beards and Daisies Indoor plants I was a little apprehensive. I love it. It fills me with joy every time I look at it and I have it placed in a position of honour on my desk. It is a Red Anthurium otherwise known as the flamingo flower. The plant comes beautifully packaged in…

    Blossom Bay Aromas

    I was very kindly contacted by Blossom Bay Aromas and asked if I would like to try some of their wax melts. This is a local business set in Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. I am obsessed with supporting local business and love the fact that I am supporting my local economy while shopping. Obviously, I jumped at the chance as I absolutely LOVE to burn candles but had never actually got to grips with the whole wax melts thing. Nevertheless, I was willing to give it a shot! Oh, boy, have I been missing out or what!!   The package arrived beautifully and securely wrapped and the scent hit me immediately…

    Juicing myself healthier – Skinny Malinkys

    Juicing myself healthier – Skinny Malinkys I’m not quite sure where to start this post. For the past few years I have suffered from irritable bowel syndrome as part of the fibromyalgia. Chronic complaints Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) can cause abdominal pain alongside either diarrhoea or constipation (or both!) It affects my sleep, anxiety levels and obviously causes me to have to spend more time than I would want near to a bathroom.  As with the fibromyalgia I have tried all the pills and doctor/medical professional recommended routes of treatment. I must admit to having a degree of control over how it affects me and my life but then again…

    My little corner of loveliness

    My little corner of loveliness When you share your home with other people, especially children it becomes nigh on impossible to find a little corner where you can just have your own things. Teenagers “borrow” your hairdryer, charger cables and anything else they can get their grubby mitts on 🙂 So this week I decided to take back a little bit of the house. I have previously declared my bedroom to be off limits to anyone who doesn’t sleep in there but that just led to an abundance of sleeping bodies in the bed (eye roll)  I took myself off to the local shopping centre (Rushmere Shopping Centre in Craigavon) and…
