Beauty Review - Scottish Fine Soaps - Larch And Lavender Body Butter

Hi all,

Hope everyone is well and enjoying a frosty winter day (it looks lovely out the window here, and miles better than gloomy wind and rain). The blog has been a little quiet of late, that's what comes from moving house just before Christmas, then catching up with everything!! I thought I'd share some beauty with you today in the form of Scottish Fine Soaps Larch and Lavender Body Butter.

I was kindly sent this to try out before Christmas, and first impressions were good. It comes in a 200ml jar and I really liked the branding, although it might help my favourite colour is purple. The box and jar has simple and clear wording on, with a simple graphic to reflect the ingredients of the product - I think it would stand out to me on a shelf, especially with the purple accents on the packaging.

The ingredients I was a little sceptical about though, I am a big fan of the relaxing properties and scent of lavender, but I wasn't sure about combining it with larch, and the fac…

Man Cave And Craft Room Wooden Signs - Craft Project

First bunch of goodies arrived from Baker Ross a couple of weeks ago and I have been beavering away using a mix of the goodies to create two items - one for the men out there, and one for crafty ladies. My box contained a mix of decopatch papers and glue, along with some wooden letters and wooden arrow plaques. I thought it would be good to combine a selection into two different themed room signs - I was aiming for a craft room sign for the ladies, and a man cave sign for the men - I was quite excited to come up with something different featuring a range of the goodies, and I think the end results are pretty much what I had in my head.



The items I used over the 2 signs are:

Decopatch glue - I've used a tub of this exact glue before and although it initially seemed pricey for glue it lasted me ages, so well worth the price. Decopatch brushes do need replacing sometimes though and wont last nearly as long, but they are cheap to buy and good quality. My tip would be, don't do what…

Orla Kiely Apron For Sport Relief, Even Sooty And Sweep Have One!

When it comes to a big charity effort like sport relief, I don't need an excuse to blog, but if I did I'm sure these super cute children's TV characters would put up a pretty persuasive argument. As the current run of 'The Great Sport Relief Bake Off' comes to an end today, it seems it's not just the winners of each episode that have got their hands on one of the designer aprons first seen as a prize for the winners.

Yes, children's TV icons Sooty and Sweep have got in with the action showing off their miniature versions of the Sport Relief Apron in a fun photo shoot. They were joined in the fun bake-off  themed photo shoot by personality Michelle Heaton.


How cute is that, I almost want sooty and sweep baking with my in my kitchen. It's not just celebs and furry characters that can get their hands on this apron though - it's being sold in HomeSense and TK Maxx for £12.99, with at least £5.25 going to Sport Relief. The apron is limited edition as wel…
