Are you partial to a Rosy Lee AKA cup of tea? I ditched coffee in favour of tea at the age of 17 and haven’t looked back. I love so many different teas, although my favourite is still good old black tea with a generous splash of semi skimmed milk and no sugar (FYI should you ever be called upon to make me a brew). Here are six signs that you could well be a tea addict too.
Sometimes receiving a beauty subscription box each month can feel a little self-indulgent, but when a company combines a beauty box with a practical product suddenly that guilty treat feels a lot more justifiable.
Pink Parcel is one such company that delivers both a box full of beauty treats and a supply of sanitary products, all for the incredible price of just £10.50 per month. If you suffer from heavy or painful periods, or even if you just feel a little ‘meh’ at that time of the month, a Pink Parcel delivery really does help brighten up your day! Now August’s parcel is here let’s take a look at its contents.
The April Pink Parcel landed on my doorstep two weeks ago but with such a busy month (half term, holiday, University reunion) I’ve only just been able to sit down and bring you my review!
For any readers that are not familiar with Pink Parcel it is a subscription service that aims to make that time of the month a little easier and a lot more enjoyable, with the reliable delivery of essential sanitary items plus a handful of beauty treats and snacks, all for the bargainous price of £12.95!
I have to admit, it’s not often a subscription box captures my interest and keeps me excited for any length of time. Usually the great boxes become so-so and the “amazing” turns into a “pretty good”, but with Pink Parcel my enthusiasm is still as strong as it was with my first box. Perhaps because it is a box which fulfils an essential need, delivering not only some lovely treats but also necessary sanitary items each and every month, making it fun and practical!
For October Pink Parcel have teamed up for CoppaFeel!, a cancer awareness charity I have featured on the blog before, so the box feels even more jam-packed than usual, with a sticker, badge, self-check guide and sachet of I Love… Perfectly Peachy Shower Gel as bonus treats. Also making a welcome reappearence is Bandzee with a set of limited edition hair ties (RRP £4.95). But what other treats await? Let’s take a look!
I love a good cuppa (who doesn’t?) but out shopping I usually just grab a box of PG Tips or Typhoo and haven’t really ventured into the world of a more premium tea. After all black tea is just black tea isn’t it? As purveyors of quality tea, the good folk at teapigs would beg to differ and so they laid the gauntlet down; try our Everyday Brew for two weeks and never go back. So I did and my eyes really were opened to a tea that actually made me savour each mouthful rather than simply gulping it down.
When teapigs invited me to take their Matcha Challenge I jumped on board. I’d already decided 2015 was going to be the year when I got fit, then illness over the festive season compounded the necessity. As soon as I was feeling better I hit the gym for the first time in three years and also embarked on my daily Matcha* shot.
Over Christmas I was really ill and it hit home that i’d neglected myself recently and I really needed to get fit and healthy again. I know it’s often easier said than done and that so many New Year resolutions fall by the wayside, but I am committed and have already begun making significant changes including signing up to my local Xercise4less gym, which I’m super excited about because I used to be quite a gym bunny before my little one came along – even working out right through my pregnancy!
So what else is going to help me achieve my goal of getting healthy in 2015?
I’m four months into my Pink Parcel subscription – the service that aims to make “that” time of the month a little more bearable – and i’m still a very happy customer.
As well as the necessary sanitary items you select according to your requirements and preference, and which are supplied in a cute black pouch to keep in your bag, each month Pink Parcel deliver a handful of beauty treats for you to look forward to – all for the bargainous price of £9.99!
Last month I blogged about my first Pink Parcel, a relatively new subscription service which aims to make that time of the month a little bit more bearable by delivering, direct to your door, not only essential sanitary products but also a bundle of additional treats!
I was so pleased with the box that I decided to keep my subscription rolling, this month paying the full price of £9.95 rather than the introductory price they generously charge for the very first box.
Today’s blog post talks about an issue most of us ladies of a certain age deal with – our periods. The majority of women breeze through that time of the month with only mild discomfort and inconvenience, but women with conditions such as PCOS or Endometriosis will more than likely feel very poorly and severely restricted due to pain and heavy flow.
