Novomins Vitamin Gummies Review *gifted

*apologies this post ended up back in my drafts section, when it should have been uploaded and stayed uploaded quite a while ago. 

I don't know if it was intentional given the release of the Barbie movie, but even if it wasn't Novomins were certainly on brand when they sent me a very pink box of assorted vitamin gummies to try. 

Novomins are a new brand to me but one which have the type of product credentials I would look for in a vitamin brand. Their box states they are: GMP certified, science backed, doctor formulated, no artificial colours or sweeteners, non GMO, NSF certified, and 3rd party tested.

I was sent 3 different tubs of gummies, each with a 30 day supply. Raspberry flavoured gummies aimed at PMS and hormonal balance, strawberry meno-balance gummies, and peach flavoured fertility gummies. There's a shelf life of around 2 years on each product, which are also gluten free, cruelty free, and suitable for vegans and vegetarians. 

The one thing I did have trouble with, in terms of the packaging and information, was the small font size, in white on a pink background on two of the tubs which made it quite hard to read the full nutritional details. 

These are described as premium nutrition with a price point (depending on product/retailer) of £17.99 (at the time of writing) with a subscribe and save option available if you want to purchase a regular supply. 

My thoughts on multi-vitamins and gummies:

Before running a blog and having the opportunity to try some vitamin and nutrition brands, I'd just taken standard, and much cheaper multi-vitamins bought from a supermarket. I shied away from spending anything like this amount on vitamin pills or gummies.

I've also thought that, unless I had a reason to go to the doctor health-wise or perhaps paid for all the relevant tests privately, I would never know exactly what levels I have of vitamins and minerals in my body, whether I lack anything, have too much of anything etc. But as a 40 something, my body and what it takes in and absorbs is changing, and while I think I have a pretty healthy diet, and try my best to live well, I have felt I could be feeling better in myself, and more energised, especially around 'that time of month', so I was excited to try these gummies, and seeing which of them may make a difference.

Trying out the gummies:

I know have two empty tubs of gummies having gone through the 30 day supply of PMS Gummies, and Meno-Balance Gummies. It was easy to stick to a routine of taking them every day and getting into a routine with them.  I took the PMS ones the first month and I was a bit sceptical as to whether I'd notice any difference between taking the gummies instead of a regular multi-vitamin. I think my mindset shifted though the second month when I was taking the Meno-Balance ones. I can't say for sure, but I did feel myself sleeping a bit better and feeling more energised

The Christmas Holiday By Phillipa Ashley Book Review

I apologise now for any or all mentions of the word Christmas in this blog post, but with a lot going on in life and work I just have to go with whatever calls to me in my reading pile, which this time was The Christmas Holiday by Phillipa Ashley.  Released last year, this book will always have a special place in my bookish heart because I helped with some crafting inspiration for it, and to see my name in the credits of this paperback is something I will always treasure. I was so excited to see how and where my ideas were used, but managed to control my impatience and not skip any pages. Although I have been a member of Phillipa's Facebook group for a while, this is my first read of hers  (have another in my reading pile) so I opened this book with a mix of anticipation and a slight fear of the unknown - I really wanted to love the book I helped with! And love it I did. It made a refreshing change to read a novel set in the Lake District, and also one which wasn't just a stere

Hobbycraft Lino Printing Online Workshop Review

 One of the things that has been great to see now we have come through the worst of the Covid pandemic, has been companies continuing with the online activities they launched during the lockdowns. Hobbycraft now offer a wide range of workshops online and in-store through the year, and I recently took part in an online lino printing workshop, so I thought I'd blog a bit more about what's on offer and the workshop I took part in. What workshops are on offer?  These vary through the year, and can involve seasonal, adults, and kid's workshops in-store and online. If you click on the workshops you are interested in finding out more about, you can find out about what's included in the price, what you'll learn, and the available workshop dates, there's also the opportunity to request private events for groups. While I'm writing this, there are workshops on Cricut, watercolour painting, knitting, paint pouring, seasonal wreath making, using clay, sewing, and a new

Hocus Pocus 2 Film Review

Halloween is one of my favourite times of year for films, and I've loved all the witch and wizard magical, spooky-themed films since I was young. I was really looking forward to seeing Hocus Pocus 2, but I had no idea what to expect from the sequel. Would they pick up where they left off in 1993, move on a bit but with a strong connection to the original, or do something completely different? This Disney + release turned out to be the latter, and I found myself watching a modern-day Salem on screen. The old town is now a 'historic district' which has the air of a novel tourist attraction, complete with a mystical magic shop which presents the story of Salem and the Sanderson Sisters as some kind of commercial entertainment enterprise - hear the story, buy some magical merch.  The detail in Gilbert's shop and his stage show presentation are very apt for the modern day, and the feeling that the Sanderson sister's legend has become less powerful and more humorous myth
