GIVEAWAY: Faithful To Nature

Faithful-To-Nature-8

Faithful-To-Nature-1

There is a wonderful local site that I often order things off of called Faithful to Nature who sell authentically natural and organic products that have been personally checked by them, so that you know without a shadow of a doubt that every single thing from their wide offering has been checked to make sure that it really is as green and as safe as its manufacturers claim it is!

Faithful To Nature sells all sorts of awesome products and one of the things that I love the most about them is that most of their goods are locally made as they always try to support local where they can! Their products are cruelty-free and they do not sell anything that they suspect or are aware contain GMO ingredients. So whether you are looking for citrus scented organic dishwashing liquid; organic pumpkin seeds; an organic anti-cellulite cream; vegan nail polish or gluten free flour, you’ll be sure to find it here. They also sell homeware, things for your pets, gifts and the list goes on.

I was literally watching this and thinking, man that is so awesome I wish we had something similar here…. Well, guess what?! We do!

Nina and I

May 9, 2017

Nina and I

Becoming a mom is probably one of the best things I have ever done with my life and when I think about the connection that I share with my kids I get so emotional because it’s so real and special and I feel like nothing or no one could ever take it away from me.

So when Nina James and I were invited by the lovely folk at L’Occitane to be a part of their Mother’s Day campaign, which celebrates the connection that every mother has with her child, I jumped at the opportunity. We got to try out some of their amazing products while playing around in my bedroom and the result is this little video, which is such a true reflection of our relationship, because we do pretty much everything together when I’m at home and I know that 20 years from now I’m going to watch it again with her and probably cry!

Last week I started my 5- day long Lucky Pony Bonanza Giveaway on my Instagram account where I gave away one awesome local product a day for 5 days. The response to the giveaway was amazing! I was blown away by everyone’s support and I’d just like to say thanks so much to everyone who entered and well done to those who won. For those who didn’t win, I have some good news – I’m giving away ALL the products that I featured last week in ONE package to ONE lucky person!

Yip, all five products which come from local labels that I love and support are going to be shipped off to one winner to either enjoy by themselves or share with a friend or two.

GIVEAWAY: Hello new guest room

November 4, 2016

hello-new-guest-room-web

Just recently we moved Nina James out of her first ever bedroom into one of the bigger rooms in our flat so that she could have a bunk bed and more space to play and run around. Her old bedroom has been sitting empty or let me rephrase that, has been used as a place for us to store all the stuff  that gets in the way for over a month now. A real refresh of that space was needed and so I tried to think of clever and cost effective ways to turn it from a glorified storeroom into a cool, clean guest bedroom that hopefully our guests would be happy to sleep in.
