Review | WUKA Period Pants

*Previously gifted product

Having a comfortable period is something that is at the top of every woman’s list. We all know that ‘that time of the month’ can bring PMS symptoms, aches, migraines, cramps and so on so the last thing anybody wants is to feel a bit yucky down below. Having used disposable menstrual products over many, many years (because I had no idea that reusables existed!) I know firsthand how disposable pads can make your periods heavier, how they can be smelly, can make your sweat, can move and lead to leaks and how the costs mount up. Thankfully, there are so many options available to us today Continue reading “Review | WUKA Period Pants”

11 Ways To Be More Eco-Friendly As A New Parent

When I became a parent the first time around (almost 7 years ago now!) the products I was told about were all about convenience. Nobody ever suggested alternative methods or brands, it was disposable this, throw away that, make your life easy and buy to chuck out; who wants to do extra washing or cleaning? Who wants to do more when you are tired? Make things simpler, choose convenience. But when I became a parent the second time around, I realised that there were other ways and ways that are far better for our environment and also better for our pockets too! (Why does nobody mention this part?!) So, here are 11 ways to be more eco-friendly as a new parent… Continue reading “11 Ways To Be More Eco-Friendly As A New Parent”

Review | Leaf and Root Luxury Eco-Friendly Cosmetics

*Gifted Products

Being more eco-friendly doesn’t stop with ditching those plastic bags or using natural cleaners, for me it is a lifestyle change which means finding businesses and solutions for all areas. I want to be able to say that I am doing the absolute best that I can, I want to know that my carbon footprint is being significantly reduced and feel happy that I am keeping my waste to a minimum. And once you start looking for products you will be pleasantly surprised by how many are available to us, it’s just the case of changing how we shop (not everything needs to come from the supermarket!) Toiletries, cosmetics and other self-care items all tend to come to us wrapped in plastic, contain a variety of perfumes and chemicals and are often tested on animals before coming to us.
