It’s a national day that happens every March here in the UK, and it’s quickly creeping up on us – Mother’s Day! If you are a last minute buyer on the hunt for a gift for the special lady in your life, then hopefully something from the guide I’ve put together below will be of interest and fingers crossed, well received.
Myself, I sometimes struggle and often put together a little hamper of items that my mum likes. There are some great gifts in here that would be a great hamper addition if you are also the sort of person who is indecisive and likes to create your own. Read more
Now, I’m not sure if you will have heard or not (jokes), but a lot of the UK was bombarded with snow last week. Tuesday, routine as usual.

For a lot of people, January is the start of a new year health kick. This seemed to be the theme of the January Degustabox – aptly named “New Year, New Me” for the first few products.

“All you do is just sit behind a computer all day, tapping away on your keyboard – it’s not hard.” – Sound familiar? Chances are, if you earn a living by working on a computer, someone has attempted to play down just how hard you actually work.
“You don’t do any actual work.”
