Are Beeswax Wraps Really Worth It?

*Affiliate Links

We all want to reduce our plastic waste, don’t we? But with so many options now available to us, I know how tricky it can be to whittle out the good from the bad. As somebody who has used quite a few food coverings/storage over the last few years, I can definitely say that I have thoroughly tried and tested them so in this article I’m going to let you know whether or not beeswax wraps are really worth it.

We are all very aware that we need to reduce waste, cut our carbon footprint and reduce our meat intake in order to do our bit for the planet but did you know that your pets could help with this too?!

Yes, that’s right even our pets contribute towards global warming. In the UK alone we are reported to own around 12 million pets – that’s 44% of us who own a pet of some variety, so what exactly does this look like in terms of emissions?

Review | Personalised Rustic Wooden Pet Bowl Holder From BoutiqueGifts

If you currently follow my blog, you’ll know that we welcomed a gorgeous Border Terrier pup into our family in October 2020 after losing our previous Border, Molly, at the grand age of 18. We hadn’t planned on getting another dog but our home just felt so empty. We were so lucky to find Tessa, she was perfect for us and that was clear from the moment we first viewed her. Needless to say, over a year on, she is one of us. She adores the boys, she is so much like Molly in many ways and just so incredibly loyal.

Pet’s for us are family. They aren’t just an animal, they are included in our everyday lives and with dogs that means coming with us almost everywhere we go. It also means they are (ahem) very well looked after – yes, she sleeps on the bed and gets lots of cuddles all of the time and yes, I talk to her like she’s another child… So, of course when BoutiqueGifts asked if I would like to review a Personalised Wooden Rustic Pet Bowl Holder from their website I jumped at the chance to treat her.

Nordgreen watch

Review | Nordgreen Sustainable Watch

Do you know what? I haven’t worn a watch since before having my children! I always used to wear one but the clasp kept getting snagged on things and I didn’t want to hurt their little gentle skin on the cold strap when they were tiny. Checking the time seemed to somehow naturally shift to constantly checking my mobile phone but I must admit that gets really tiresome especially if you don’t always want to have your phone on you. A simple solution would be to now go back to wearing a watch but with sustainability being a really important factor for me, I wanted to ensure I could find a brand that ticked all of my boxes. Nordgreen is one such company who have not only created a sleek and stylish range of sustainable and vegan watches for both men and women but who are also passionate about the impact they have on our planet. They sent me a women’s watch from their Infinity range and this is my review.

REAL Kombucha Review

*Ad

As somebody who isn’t a big drinker especially at home, I am always on the lookout for a drink that is refreshing and a nice alternative to alcohol. I’d heard of Kombucha from a few friends online and I often see people brewing their own so I was quite curious about what it actually was and how it tasted. REAL Kombucha then got into contact to ask if I would like to give their brews a try so I thought this was a great opportunity to see what everyone was talking about.
