My Road Trip Wash Kit

I was going to make this a part of my “travelling light” series, but realised that while I have been quite limited with the stuff I’ve packed for this trip, I’m not really travelling light when it comes to my wash kit. So instead this will just be a #Zartusacan preparation post, which you seem

Currently Loving: December

You said you enjoyed my currently loving in November so you’re getting one for December too! And in the interests of my YouTube experiment you’re also getting a video run-down of everything I’ve chosen this month too – go straight to the bottom of this post if you’d prefer to watch rather than read.  1 | I

What’s in your Bag? Femfresh Wipes

This is a post about feminine care when travelling… just saying in case any of my readers would prefer not to read about that kind of thing! When I go on holiday on my motorbike I use this incredibly useful BarBagEvo handlebar bag by Wunderlich. It was a birthday present from LincsGeek (via Nippy Normans

On Having Fickle Skin. Review: Avène Cleanance

My skin sits at the top of the list of things about me I hate. It’s horrible. And so you’ll forgive me for a random beauty product post on my otherwise now-focussed-on-the-outdoors blog; but when it comes to sorting my complexion out I need all the help I can get. Like so many people, my

Review: Batiste Floral Dry Shampoo

It is no secret that Batiste Dry Shampoo is an absolute staple product for me. I use it loads. Not every day, but nearly. It’s instant refresh means I can wash my fine wispy long hair less often, and means I don’t have to worry about helmet hair! This is the latest incarnation of my

Review: Simple Eye Make Up Corrector Pen

One of the side effects of having a very weak left eye is that I can get my eye makeup just right on one eye, but struggle to make the other one match. So most of the time I don’t bother – not even with mascara. Simple have this useful little pen that helps with

(It’s a Good Job) Beauty is Only Skin Deep

Back in January I made a very important New Year Resolution. I promised that I would be true to myself. I said that I would think about what I really wanted, and strive to get it. I said I would consider carefully who I was, and aim to be like that all the time. Most

Review: E45 Nourish and Restore Lotion (Bzz Review)

I am a Bzz Agent and this is a Bzz Review… Everyone has heard of E45 cream. I certainly had. I associate it with two kinds of people – those with skin complains that require a specific kind of product, and really old people. It is not something I had ever bought for myself –

Review: Beverly Hills Formula Perfect White Toothpaste

This year I have promised I will be true to myself. Part of that is trying to look after myself better, to find things that help me feel happier about myself and the way I look. One thing that has always been an issue for me is my teeth… unfortunately a lack of enamel on

Review: Montagne Jeunesse Passion Peel Off Face Masque

LincsGeek and I don’t do Valentine’s Day. We like to think that our love is obvious and doesn’t require a throw-away card or bunch of very expensive flowers to confirm it. Cards and gifts are lovely, but personally I much prefer a surprise something rather than a “because my diary told me I had to”

Review: John Frieda Highlight Activating Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner

The other day a friend commented on my hair – she asked if I’d had it dyed, saying it looked lighter and brighter. I thanked her and explained that no, I haven’t had my hair done for a very long time, but I had started using a new shampoo and conditioner that is designed to

Visionary Soap (Again)

It’s nice to revisit companies here on Splodz Blogz and see what new things they’re up to. Visionary Soap sent me another selection of their products to try out.  As last time the first thing that struck me about these was the incredibly strong scent coming from the soap, body butter and bath melt. Wow. I’ve had
