Every month I share my ‘Five Favourite Finds’ for the month. They can be absolutely anything new that I have come across. The challenge: making sure I find five each month. Some months really do prove tougher than others but there is lots of fun had in the search. I’m using it to try encourage myself to find new things and also share my finds with you all to save you the leg work! So without further ado and in no particular order…
One: Owl Heated Wheat Bag
Sam bought me this microwavable heat bag whilst I was pregnant. But it was never as hot as I wanted it to be. Recently I’ve had a bad shoulder and after getting a massage, the masseuse advised I regularly apply heat to it. We also had to buy a new microwave that has a bit more oomph so I thought I’d give this a bash again. It is AMAZING when properly heated! With hindsight I should have given it an extra 10 – 20 seconds in the old one…
Two: Graze bags
A couple of months ago one of my fave finds was the Graze Veggie Protein Power box. So you can imagine how happy I was to discover my two favourite flavours in large resealable bags in Sainsburys. Whoop!
Three: Prayer Plant
For the last 9 months or so I have always had some flowers on the fire place. But I decided I wanted a change so I popped to B&Q and found this stunning prayer plant. This type of plant can sometimes be tricky to keep because they like humidity but I stood it on a pebble base and it’s been doing incredibly well. It looks so beautiful!
In my favourite finds #3 I tried out a high SPF moisturiser from The Body Shop. But after a few months I decided it was too greasy. So I decided to go back to Origins which, whilst costing more, last for ages and are really good. This particular one is amazing because it’s oil free which means even at the end of the day I’m not shiny. Whoop!
Five: Spy boxset
Sam did a trial of Now TV and we got hooked on this Sky TV series called ‘Spy‘. So for Sam’s birthday I discovered the box set on Amazon which includes the Christmas finale. It’s so British, so quirky and so funny. We are currently enjoying a second time round!
