Product Junkies Unite – All The Stuff I Get To Try 2018 – USA Edition

I am a product junkie, I admit it. I think I’ve said it a few times on this blog, Instagram, Twitter, pretty much anywhere I get the chance to. But I have to say I was very reserved on our recent family trip to Florida. It was my first trip to the USA and I always thought if I ever had the chance to go, I would go crazy in the shops. Like bankrupt myself crazy! I don’t know if it was because it was so late in the trip, because it was Wal-Mart or because I knew my product cupboard…

Perception

I’ve been opening my laptop over and over and achieving nothing. I’m not in love with this blog right now. I’ve lost my mojo and my momentum. I think most bloggers must go through this.

Song Of The Month – September 2018 – Crawling By Linkin Park

LINK TO THE VIDEO Last year, the lead singer of Linkin Park died and I had an immense feeling of grief, especially for his children, I realised that I hadn’t listened to one of my all time favourite albums, Hybrid Theory, for years. It got me through those awkward teenage years, gave me a feeling of belonging to something. The album will never sound the same again. When it first came out and for a significant amount of time after, it was literally the only album that I owned where I could listen to every single song without having to…

Glasses Direct: Buying Glasses Online

Ordering glasses online can be quite a daunting prospect if you’ve not done it before. Part of the experience of getting your eyes tested and then buying glasses is the trying on the specs in the shop, figuring out what works best on your face, checking it fits, what colours complement your skjn and which frames complement your purse. And although almost every other transaction translates to the online world, does this?
