Khadi create 100% plant based vegan hair products. They only contain ingredients good for your hair and won’t use any harsh chemicals. This is ideal for me as I have pretty much ruined my hair over the years with bleach so I have been trying to use more natural and gentle hair products. Not only are they better for your hair but if you have un-naturally dyed hair like me then natural products will prolong your colour.

I have been using the amla volume and gloss shampoo which is suitable for all hair types and also the vitalising hair oil which provides volume, stimulates hair growth and prevents hair loss.

“Amla Shampoo contains the correct combination of Ayurevdic herbs to create volume and gloss. Amla shampoo with it’s low ph, cleanses and conditions your hair giving it elasticity, helping to prevent moisture loss and at the same time giving your hair shine, body and volume.

The fragrance of Ylang Ylang in Khadi Amla Shampoo not only adds to the aroma but helps stimulate hair growth.

Amla – Rejuvenates scalp and hair, stimulates hair growth and naturally conditions hair.

Tulsi – purifies scalp and helps prevent hair and scalp from getting oily and hair getting limp. promotes hair growth.”

“Khadi Vitalising hair Oil is a hair oil to help stimulate hair growth using herbs, flowers and oils from India from an Ayurvedic formula. Vitalising Hair Oil is a pre-wash conditioning treatment and as well as stimulating hair growth the hair oil helps prevent hair loss whilst giving volume and revitalises dry, dull and damaged hair.

Palash, Indrayan and Rosemary helps stimulate hair growth and strengthen roots.

Omega rich Sesame, Coconut and Carrot Seed Oil along with Vitamin E helps prevent hair breakage.”

As you can see,both products are great if you are looking for hair growth. My hair always struggles as it breaks off before it has a chance to grow due to being so damaged. I have tried a lot of things to try to get it back into better condition and to help it grow longer and healthier.

I really liked the shampoo as you don’t need to use much and I noticed it didn’t fade my hair colour as much as my usual shampoo which was a colour safe one!

I love trying new things out so I was excited when Printkick contacted me and asked if I wanted to review an item from their site along with one of their goodie bags. I love technology and stationary so was looking forward to seeing what they would send.
Printkick are a company that provide branded marketing products mostly to businesses, however, they often do personalised things for birthdays, promotions and weddings etc. Their website is easy to navigate and they have a wide range of products to choose from.
A bit about the company:
“Printkick is a platform enabling customers to configure, price and quote on a huge range of personalised products instantly – including print options, without the need for the back-and-forth with a salesperson. It’s simple, efficient and transparent – just how it should be.

We’ve streamlined the entire buying process, from receiving visuals and proof images, to signing off and paying securely. Make repeat orders with the click of a button. All your order history, artwork and information is stored within your account.

We’re using our 20+ years of experience as a promotional products supplier ​to source effectively, print great products and provide a seamless customer experience.” – Printkick.com

What I received:

As well as the Bluetooth speaker I chose, Printkick very kindly sent me a goodie bag that contained:

Tablet sleeve/bag – this is ideal for carrying around a tablet in, it is a good quality fabric and would be perfect if you then wanted to put it inside a larger bag like a laptop bag or handbag but wanted to protect whatever was inside. You could also use it to keep cables in if you didn’t have a tablet but were fed up of cables getting tangled inside your bag! I love that it has a cat on that looks like my Gizmo, but of course, you would be able to pick a design or logo yourself if you were to purchase them personalised.

Pen – everyone loves a good pen. It is easy to hold and I like the texture and feel of it. Often promotional pens feel cheap but this one is great quality and writes really well.

Notebook – the notebook is a good quality and looks very professional with the padded look on the outside and the elastic to hold it shut or keep your page.

Coaster – the coaster is quite thick and is the perfect size for a mug or glass.

3 in 1 screen saver cloth – this can be used to either clean your screen, put it in your laptop when you shut it to protect between the screen and they keyboard or as a mousemat.

3 in 1 cable – this is great as it can plug into a usb on a laptop or computer or into a plug for the mains. It then has three adaptors so it pretty much fits anything! Great to use for a phone or camera/go pro. Makes life easier as not everything has the same charging cable!

You can literally get anything personalised as you can see. From bluetooth speakers, pens, notebooks, coasters, cables, there are so many other products on their website too.

It would really help a business to get promotional items like these to spread the word. Their products are really great quality too. I am so surprised at how good the speaker is, so powerful for a small unit!

Decking is one of those things you don’t think you need until you have it. Soon, you will discover all the benefits and how instrumental it will be in making the most of your garden and home.

Here she goes again, banging on about vegan snacks haha. I actually think I am on some sort of quest to try every new vegan snack I come across!

www.nutreelife.co.uk sell a great range of protein bars, snacks and powders depending on your preference. It is a worry when eating a vegan diet that you are not consuming enough protein that you used to get from meat but in fact if you eat a balanced diet you can easily get the correct amount but there are a lot of protein based products to help you, especially if you work out.

I have used powders before but something that caught my eye was the snack bites. Sometimes i don’t always want a whole protein bar but I want something small to have. I got the Chocolate brownie protein snack bites. they do a lot of other flavours too.

“Just like an ordinary snack that you are accustomed to eating, such as a chocolate biscuit or a packet of crisps, a protein snack is a small item of food that you may eat between meals. However, the benefits of a protein filled snack are so much better than a biscuit or cake. Protein helps you to feel fuller for much longer than a carb-based snack alone. Plus our vegan snack bites, cubes and flapjacks contain fibre so you won’t feel hunger until your next meal. Not only that they contain all-natural ingredients, and natural sugars from fruit to provide all the energy you’ll need to get you through the day.” – www.nutreelife.co.uk

Do any of you have protein based snacks?

A couple of candles I have been loving recently are from www.anuukaromatic.com. They have such a great range of aromatherapy oils and scents they pretty much have something to suit any ones taste.

“Anuuk Aromatic is a small independent company offering a selection of luxury aromatherapy products made with natural essential oils and other plant materials. The product range currently includes natural soy wax scented candles, essential oil blends and individual essential oils. We are also happy to create bespoke fragrances and and personalised products. “- www.anuukaromatic.com

I got the Opulence in the classic size and the Decadence in the mini size. The classics are £65 each and the minis are £35 each which I think is a good price considering how high quality they are and how strong the scent is. You can tell they have been made with care and a lot has been put into the brand. I hate nothing more than buying a scented candle and burning it, only to find it looses the scent. These ones keep the scent strong the whole way through and last forever!

Opulence:

The scent: Fresh lavender fields, gentle breeze, herbal garden

The energy: calming, relaxing, connecting

Decadence:

The scent: Exotic flowers and fruits, hot sand and burning sun

The energy: Uplifting, energising, exciting

My favourite is definitely the opulence as lavender is my all time favourite scent anyway 🙂

I really love the packaging too, I don’t often see many candles in black jars, so this really attracted me to them. They come with a lid and ribbon too so would make a great gift. I could smell how lovely they were before I even opened the lids!
