Grace Cole Fruity Lip Balms

Grace Cole Fruity Lip Balms

These gorgeous Grace Cole lip balms are the best ones I have used in a long time. The formula reminds me of Vaseline so they are really quick and easy to apply and are lovely and moisturising. But the best thing about them is the smell. Especially the coconut and lime – I can’t get…

Primavera Bath Oil

Primavera Bath Oil

I love a hot bubble bath to relax but recently have been trying out the Primevera Bath Oil in Ginger & Lime. Before I tried the Aromatherapy Associates Mini Bath and Shower Oils a couple of years ago now, I had convinced myself that I didn’t like bath oils and never went near them. I…

Chocolate & Lime Cupcakes

Radox for Men

Radox have some new shower gels just for men which have bright, stand out packaging and a wake-you-up sort of smell. I really love how colourful all of the products are and the hooks which fold out from the top of the packets are handy for storing them. There are 4 different types available: •…

More Cupcakes……

Here are some of my latest creations. The cupcakes with chocolate icing are just plain vanilla cakes but I was more adventurous with the others.  The ones with white icing are actually pistachio, cardamom and lime cakes with lime icing.  I was surprised at how nice they tasted!
