Eco Food Wraps – Perfect For Packed Lunches

Eco Food Wraps are perfect for packed lunches. Fed up of using plastic food bags that have to be binned after one use? Then Eco Food Wraps are the perfect, eco-friendly, plastic-free, reusable food wraps. We all know far too much plastic ends up in our oceans and many of us are moving away from using plastics in a bid to save our planet. Whilst I’m still very new to this and still use plastics more than I should, this is a great way to start going plastic-free.

Eco Food Wrap set of 3

Eco Food Wraps

Eco food wraps are handmade using organic cotton, coated in a beeswax/tree resin blend. These fab wraps let you mould them to the shape of any object. Eco Food Wraps will keep your food fresher for longer. They were designed to replace the use of cling-film & single-use plastic food bags. Being reusable & chemical free, Eco Food Wraps are the environmentally friendly, naturally sustainable Food Packaging Solution and are perfect for packed lunches, picnics and generally keeping food fresh. Simply wipe clean between uses.

Perfect For Packed Lunches

We were sent 3 different sizes & prints from Eco Food Wrap to try ourselves. We used them on Eva’s first day at school and she loved them & even remembered to bring it home! The wraps come in some lovely designs and different sizes to suit your needs.

We found the wraps so simple to use! I love how they mould to the shape you need just by gently warming them with your hand. They keep bread much fresher, something Eva instantly noticed when using the Eco Food Wraps. She often complains her lunch isn’t as nice having sat in the lunch tray all morning. It was nice she instantly benefitted from using Eco Food Wraps.

Small Eco Food Wrap

These fab wraps are perfect for a range of items including bread, pastries, fruit, cheese and more. The only thing the wraps can’t be used on is meat. Being reusable means you save a lot of money over the course of using the wraps as well as avoiding using single-use plastics. They look funky & cool with some lovely prints available to suit everyone.

There are several different packages available from Eco Food Wrap from single wraps in multiple sizes to family packs of various sizes/prints. Make sure you check them out if you are looking for alternative food packaging.

Lace Hem Pep Top

Cherry Crumble Clothing

The top Eva chose is a lovely lace hem pep top in lilac, turquoise and white. Eva is quite petite for 8 so we ordered 7-8 years which fit her nicely. The lace hem is really pretty and soft, I was expecting it to be rough but it really isn’t.

Cute Clothing

We were sent some seriously cute clothing including a beautiful dress & adorable pyjamas! Izzy had picked her items herself from the Cherry Crumbles range. The website is easy to navigate and you can refine your search. Izzy is currently wearing 5-6 years so we refined our search for girls clothing in 5-6 and she found 2 lovely items. You can refine your search by size colour, print, rating availability and gender. They arrived within a few days and Izzy was really excited to try them on.

Polished Striped Dress

Izzy picked out the Polished Striped dress first she loves a pretty dress and this one caught her eye! When it comes to dresses, I genuinely have no clue what to pick. Luckily Izzy’s choice looks beautiful on her!

Polished Striped Dress From Cherry Crumble

As you can see, the dress fits Izzy nicely in a size 5-6. I’m not a fan of short dresses on little girls and this is the perfect length to play in. We both love the cute pockets on the front, especially Izzy who loves to store stones & flowers in her pockets.

Posing in her Polished striped dress

The dress itself is super soft and comfortable. It looks adorable on and will be perfect for parties, playing or days out. Overall I was really surprised by this dress, it isn’t something I would have thought to pick myself but I have to give Izzy credit, she knows what she likes & what suits her!

Shimmering Pyjama Set

Izzy loves a pair of pyjamas, especially if they are pink and shimmery! When Izzy spotted these gorgeous pyjamas on Cherry Crumble she got really excited. We were both really impressed with how soft and lovely these pyjamas felt when they arrived.


Shimmering pyjamas

Izzy said they were really comfortable to wear and having worn them all night they are now her favourite pyjamas. They are 100% cotton and so soft, they look adorable on her too. The trousers have a back pocket and the top a little top pocket too. The trousers tie up if needed.


Cherry Crumble - Shimmering Pyjama set

They are light but warm, perfect for Izzy! The quality is fantastic, with no loose threads or wonky stitches to be seen anywhere which was fab to see. I’ll be ordering more of their gorgeous pyjama range for our Christmas eve sacks too!

The Secrets Tree – The Hounds Of Penhallow Hall

The Secrets Tree is the fourth book from The Hounds of Penhallow Hall series. Written by Holly Webb, illustrated by Jason Cockcroft & published by Stripes/ Little Tiger, this mysterious series is aimed at 8-10-year-olds. Eva was kindly sent a copy to review. You can buy paperback copies from Amazon for £5.99.

The Secrets Tree

The Secrets Tree

The Secrets Tree series is perfect for dog-lovers and anyone who desires some mystery and magic! Set in the atmospheric Cornish coastal setting, rich in history an legend…

Polly & rex are in search of a new ghost dog whilst celebrations are in full swing at the stately home. They come across a dog’s head carved in a door down the old stable block. They also wake a terrier called patch, only for him to run away. Polly & rex find him hiding in a hollow tree and find themselves on the trail of an even greater mystery. Inside the tree is a coded message! Can Polly & Rex unravel the mystery of the dog’s young master and his brother?

Eva’s Thoughts

Eva enjoyed reading The Secrets Tree but found it a rather quick read as she has become quite a bookworm! She really loved the story being based around dogs. As Eva has moved on to books such as the Harry Potter series recently, she likes a little more mystery. She thinks children who love mysteries will really enjoy the  Secrets Tree and it will encourage them to love reading mystery series like The Hounds of Penhallow Hall. Having read several books by Holly Webb now, Eva thinks she is a fantastic author and loves discovering some of the 100+ books HollWebb has written.

If you have a mystery-loving reader who also loves dogs then this book is definitely perfect. They will be sure to love the Hounds of Penahllow Hall series.

Relaxing With Olverum Bath Oil

I’ve been relaxing with Olverum bath oil this week. Olverum Bath Oil is an effective way to relieve stress naturally and achieve a great night’s sleep. Obviously, I jumped at the chance to review a sample of this unique, highly concentrated, therapeutic bath oil.

Travel set- Olverum Bath Oils

Olverum contains 10 pure essential oils, carefully blended to work synergistically, giving you a relaxing bath oil. Winner of Tatler Beauty awards 2018 ‘Best Bath Oil’, Olverum great for easing aching or sore muscles. It’s also a perfect soothing antidote for a cold or flu with a gorgeously aromatic unisex scent. As my long-term readers will know, I suffer from chronic pain & muscle spasms and anything natural that may help, I’ll happily give a try!

Described as ‘bath nirvana’ by The Sunday Times Style Magazine it seemed an opportunity not to be missed. Olverum survived by word of mouth for many years, a product known in the UK only to a small number of passionate devotees. Beautifully re-packaged, yet retaining the same loved formulation used for over eight decades, Olverum recently relaunched under new British ownership.

Olverum Bath Oil Travel Set £19

Relaxing With Olverum Bath Oils

Relaxing With Olverum Bath Oil

Having heard all the positive talk about Olverum I couldn’t wait to get the girls to bed and run myself a bath. The start of the Summer holidays has been pretty busy and I could definitely use some time relaxing in the bath. I ran a warm bath with 5ml of Olverum bath oil and the aroma instantly filled the room! It smells gorgeous and feels amazing on your skin. I relaxed for a full 15minutes, something I very rarely do. My skin flares up in the heat but the added oil seemed to really help and left my skin feeling soft and hydrated.

I’m looking forward to my next bath using Olverum bath oil, it really leaves you feeling relaxed and rested. If you are looking for something to help you relax or a treat to pamper yourself with I definitely recommend Olverum.

I love notebooks, I currently have 5 notebooks on my desk & I’m more than happy to add the lovely A5 leather red notebook with Printkick’s branding embossed on the front.

Printkick Mousemat

I think the 3-in-1 mousemat, screen wipe & screen protector with the cat design which is also in the bag is a fab product. It’s soft on top with a good grip on the bottom.

Contour Frost Ballpen
Credit: Printkick

I have a few giveaways coming up next month so I took a browse myself for personalised stationery I could include. I discovered gorgeous purple Contour Frost Ballpens & I decided to submit a quote request for 250 pens. I chose one colour with http://relentlesslypurple.com printed in the blog font, late one night. I received a quote the very next morning at a very reasonable price. I’ll be ordering some, hopefully in time for my giveaways next month. Compared to many sites I have looked at for a similar product, I know it’s a great deal for such quality.

Having sampled this goody bag myself, I can safely say Printkick will be my first choice when it comes to ordering branded products and personalised stationery. The quality speaks for itself and I would definitely recommend them to businesses and individuals alike.
