Currently Loving | January 2017

My blog is primarily about the outdoors, adventure, travel and my bucket list, but I do like to deviate slightly once a month for my regular currently loving post. More the type of post a ‘lifestyle blogger’ might write, I enjoy putting these ones together because they help me to stop and consider the things

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 2015

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
