As a busy Mum of 2 very active boys, I find self-care to be one of the hardest things on my (long) list to squeeze into my week. I certainly think that going from a slower-paced life to a faster one after lockdown has been a bit of a shock to the system and I have felt as though I have burnt myself quite a bit. I know they say that you can’t pour from an empty cup which is why I am actively trying to make more time for me and one way I have been doing this is by trying out Scentered Aromatherapy Wellbeing Balms and Candles which were sent to me in both the De-stress and Sleep well scents for review.

Want to Make Your Own Clothes? Here’s What You Need

There are a few things you need to make your own clothes, so keep reading to find out what they are.

How To Give More Eco-Friendly Gifts This Christmas

*Affiliate Links

Christmas can be such a wonderful time of year – time with family, laughter, celebrations, good food – but it can also be an extremely wasteful time of year. Did you know that here in the UK, we bin approximately 227,000 miles of Christmas wrapping paper each year? Not to mention the 40 million rolls of sellotape, 5 million Christmas puddings, 2 million turkeys, 74 million mince pies and it is estimated that 1 in 5 unwanted gifts will end up in landfill. When you learn facts like this, it certainly makes you look at this festive season in a different light doesn’t it? I have previously covered how you can be more eco-friendly at Christmas in this article so now I want to look at how you can give more eco-friendly gifts this Christmas in the hope that you will not only provide a gift that is better for our planet but one that is also loved by the receiver.
