Playing Hockey, Dodgy Knees and Deep Heat

Isn’t it strange what brings back memories? Smells definitely do it for me. And when a parcel with a new Deep Heat product arrived for me to try out it wasn’t even smelling the smell that did it, but simply thinking about the smell.  When I was a teenager I absolutely loved playing hockey. It was

Review: Waking up with Lumie Bodyclock Active

We received a Lumie Bodyclock Active 250 for Christmas after at least a couple of years of thinking about buying one. I am definitely a believer in SAD, and think I suffer from it myself. When the mornings and evenings are dark I go into a state of slump, losing what energy I had built up during

Review: Jim Bag Duffel

The thing I like most after a good pair of shoes, is a nice bag – and like my shoes I prefer my bags on the more practical side of fashion. Come on you know I’m no fashionista – you’ll not spot me with a short handled bag in the crook of my arm, totally

Recipe: Lemon and White Chocolate Truffles

Fancy making something indulgent to share at a Christmas or New Year party this month? Here’s an idea – these are lovely little lemon and white chocolate truffles made with Rachel’s yogurt. Yes that’s right – yogurt – and lemon flavoured yogurt at that.  The recipe, which was sent to me by Rachel’s, is very simple.

Weekly Vlog Episode 2

You’re in luck… a second weekly vlog from me in as many weeks! I quite enjoyed last weeks and I’ve had some nice comments (thank you), so I filmed episode two for you.  There was much less poorly this week which was very good, so there’s more of happy Splodz for you to enjoy. My week

Review: Joby GripTight Tripod Mount

When I started to make videos on my phone I realised quickly that propping my phone up against a pile of books wasn’t going to cut it. The number of times I had to stop and put my phone back in the right position after it slipped out of place, even in those first couple

TopDeck Turkey Diary Day 8 | Fethiye and Home

A continuation of my TopDeck Turkey diary. If you haven’t read the first post in the series yet go and start here.   My TopDeck Tour of Turkey was officially over at breakfast time (sad face), but I had one more full day to spend in Fethiye before starting my (very long) journey back home.

Review: ActiviTea Portable Tea Infuser

Want to take a nice cup of tea out and about with you but don’t like the taste of tea from a flask? This interesting new product from Adagio Teas might work for you – the glass body and removable infuser means the tea tastes exactly how you want it, and there is no need

Review: Keela Belay Pro Jacket

It’s finally cold enough to write this blog post! (I say “finally” because I like proper seasons – none of this changeable stuff – bring on the winter!) I’ve had this jacket for ages but it’s so warm I’ve not wanted to wear it much. In the last few weeks, though, it has definitely proved its worth

Review: Lifedge “Ultimate Cable”

Lifedge, the company who made the absolutely awesome waterproof iPhone case, are back, and this time with an accessory that anyone who wants to keep their phone charged when out and about in potentially wet circumstances – a rugged lightning cable, or rather the “ultimate” cable!  Why might you want a rugged cable I hear you

Three Days Without Chewing. My NOSH Detox Experience.

I was recently contacted by NOSH who had seen my various ramblings about food and bloating and energy levels and other things. They offered me the opportunity to try their three day beginner’s fast. They thought their juice detox would be the ideal way for me to stop, take a break, and give my eating
