Today has been a wet and miserable sort of day!  I went for a long run this morning and got absolutely soaked.  (I still loved it!)  When the weather is like this we tend to turn to food to cheer us up.  Plus because we are stuck indoors more there tend to be more opportunities to raid the fridge.  This … Read more

Recently, I treated myself to something I’d been after for a while.  On my journey to an eco-friendly home I have been on the look out for a new razor.  I’ve tried epilating, disposables, electric shavers and various men’s razors.  But either they didn’t give me the shaving experience th… Read more
