Handmade Rustic Lace Garland

I’ve always been a bit of a collector. When I was little I had a collection of erasers (I wonder what happened to those, I think erasers from the 80s are quite popular now!) I think it might run in the family. My Nana collected fridge magnets. My…

As I am about to embark on the great adventure known as ‘mama to two under two’ I was very excited to hear about the new release from Modern Books. Their new title ‘Mindful Mama, Happy Baby’ really is an absolute joy. Mindfulness seems to be…

Scorching Summer Giveaway

It’s the height of summer, what could be better than sitting under your sun shade, chilled drink in hand, relaxing and catching up on some blog reading? How about if you have £150 to spend on Amazon too? Sound good? Well I’ve joined in with a…

Handmade Coconut, Lavender and Chamomile Balm

Handmade Coconut, Lavender and Chamomile Balm

The scent of coconuts always reminds me of summer – sun lotion, pina coladas… mmm delicious! When Indigo Herbs asked me to create a recipe using a Summer Hero product, coconut oil had to be the one I went for. I’ve used coconut oil in recipes such…
