Amphora Aromatics Student Survival Kit Review

For those that don’t already know I’m currently finishing off a Masters in Information and Library Studies. The appearance and subsequent diagnosis of my ME (you can read all about that over here) threw some of my plans into chaos but thanks to a supportive department and understanding supervisor I was allowed to go on medical leave.

Scrub Love Mint Temptation Review

    The lovely Scrub Love UK team sent me one of their products to review. If you’ve read some of my other beauty posts you’ll know I’m a massive fan of scrubs (face or body) so I snapped up the chance to try out this one. I’ve never tried a coffee scrub before, or a dry scrub, so it was a new experience for me.   The Products Scrub Love comes in 3 different flavours; Original Lovin’, Coconut Affair and Mint Temptation. My sample was Mint Temptation which I was really happy about as mint is always super refreshing and it has tea treeRead More →
