Have you ever tried a bamboo toothbrush? f.e.t.e. have created a range of biodegradable bamboo toothbrushes to help eliminate plastics and be better for the environment.

We pronounce it “fate” but the acronym “f.e.t.e.” stands for: “from earth to earth.” It is our aim to raise awareness of environmental issues and encourage others to consider ways to help safeguard and protect it by changing our consuming and manufacturing habits. Thus “f.e.t.e.” is all about utilizing natural resources that come as direct FROM the EARTH as possible (and used for products we feel we could not do without) and which can then – after it’s usefulness has ceased – return TO the EARTH as part of the natural and ecological order of things.“- www.fromearthtoearth.uk

Their toothbrushes also include eco friendly pigments to add a bit of colour to them and help you identify who’s is who’s if more than one of you is using a bamboo brush in your bathroom!

The family pack is ideal as it contains four brushes, each has a different colour handle and head.

They supply a good range of brushes, depending on if you want soft or medium bristles, they also have a good choice of colours and accessories.

The handles are quite comfortable to use and the bristles feel like they give your teeth a really good clean.

What kind of toothbrush do you use?

With Nicks birthday this week and with Halloween and Christmas coming up I wanted to get my hands on some new clothes to wear. If you have been reading my blog you will know that I have reviewed quite a few items from Femmeluxe before and au have always been impressed with their products.

What I love most about the website is the range of products, they have so many different things, from dresses to tracksuits.

Everything is always so well priced and they always seem to have a sale or offer on which is great. Also, if you are a student you can get extra discount!

Delivery is always quick and then offer next day delivery if needed. Each item arrives individually wrapped and they are always packaged well.

I ordered everything in either a 10 or a S/M which is an 8/10 as these seem to be the best fit and suit my figure well.

Silver Holographic Bodycon Dress – Alyssa

Size 10

£15.99

This dress is so beautiful, as it is holographic it really sparkles in the light. The pictures online do not so it justice as you really need to see the light shine on it.

It fits perfect and is very supportive and you can adjust the straps if needed so you don’t need to wear a bra if you don’t need to. I think the length of the dress is really nice too.

It has a lining which is almost silly so it is soft against your skin and isn’t scratchy like sequinned items often are.

Grey Sparkly Cycling Shorts Co-ord – Harley

S/M (8/10)

£21.99

This set is super cute to wear day or night and you can always wear the items separately if you don’t want to wear them together. I am really like sparkly things this time of year. The top would look really nice with even just plain black leggings or a pair of jeans.

Light Wash Graffiti Print Ripped Jeans – Jessa

Size 10

£20.99

I love jeans from Femmeluxe. They are always such good quality and the size 10 fits perfectly. I have had several different styles of jeans from them and I have liked them all. I think this is quite a unique design with the graffiti writing all over them. I like the colours that are used on them too.

Black PU Cuffed Joggers – Sophie

S/M (8/10)

£24.99

I was quite interested in these as I love the jogger and t shirt look but always want to jazz it up slightly and look a bit nicer so I thought these would be great to wear out. I wasn’t sure if they would be comfortable or not but they really are. They look so cool but they are really comfortable like normal joggers. They also do them in a khaki green so I might get those too!

Getting fit is hard enough but if the treadmill is boring you to tears and team games aren’t your thing, then finding something to get you active can be difficult. However, there are a few ways you can get fit – you just need to identify where your interests cross over with more active pursuits. 

For animal lovers, this is really easy. There are a few sports that include our favourite friends and the most obvious companions are horses and dogs. But you might like to read on for another tip for animal lovers too… 

Saddle Up

Horse riding is a brilliant way to boost your mood, increase your fitness and take in some fresh air while you’re at it. Of course, cross country riding is just one area of this sport and you could also try jumping or dressage if that’s more your style. 

To start horse riding, you don’t need to jump straight in and buy a horse with some land. Most riding schools will let you borrow a horse and teach you the basics too. Indeed, lots of owners look for partners who can take care of their beloved horse while they are away. So, get your riding boots on and give it a go! 

Fetch! 

Dogs are the most wonderful companions and whether you have your own or you borrow a neighbour’s, they are bound to get you active. Going for long walks and playing together will increase your stamina over time and encourage you to get off the sofa for a little bit of time each day as dogs are bound to inject a bit of fun into your workout

Dogs also love running and make for brilliant workout pals. Because dogs are pack animals, they like to stay close by you and can spur you on to achieve better times and distance. However, it is important that you do a little training with your dog before you set out so that they don’t dash across busy roads or get distracted from your route! 

Dive

Fish might not be your preferred option for a workout buddy and they certainly won’t be coming along on a run any time soon. However, if you’re willing to join them in their habitat, they can provide an excellent distraction. 

SCUBA diving is a really good way to get fit because your weight is balanced for you and there’s no pressure on your joints. Plus, since you shouldn’t get out of breath, more people are inclined to give it a go. Swimming along with your equipment is a good way to very gently build your strength and fitness as well as maintaining your stamina. SCUBA has also been shown to decrease blood pressure and increase your sense of wellbeing. It’s no wonder fish always seem so relaxed! 

The animal kingdom puts us to shame when it comes to health and fitness but with a little help from our furry, hairy and scaly friends, we can enjoy the benefits of exercise too. The trick is to find the right activity for you. The rest is easy.

My husband is so difficult to buy presents for. You ask him two months before his birthday what he wants and then ask every week up until his birthday and he just shrugs haha. I always used to get him some new clothes and nice toiletries but the thing is, if he needs a new jumper or something throughout the year then he will just get it, meaning I have no idea when it comes to his birthday or Christmas!

Within the last year or so I have been making the most of Prezzybox for when I am not sure what to get people. You can filter by occasion or recipient and a lot of their gifts can be personalised.

Nick is really into football (Arsenal!) and he also loves mountain biking so I was looking for ideas based around these and came up with the following:

Personalised Arsenal dressing room photo

£14.99

This is a super cool idea for any football lover and they have lots of teams you can pick from. You can pick any name to go on the shirt as well as what number you would like to use! It comes is a really cute folder two so it can be displayed nicely.

Personalised bicycle puncture repair tool kit

£19.99

What an ideal present for anyone that rides a bike?! It is a comprehensive repair kit complete with Hex Keys, Spanner, Screwdrivers, 1/4 Drive Sockets and a Socket Adaptor. It is great quality and looks really posh with the engraved name! I love that it comes in a little bag too.

I think Prezzybox is great for gifts as they really do have something for everyone and I think personalised gifts are a little more special too.

It is great to keep this website in mind with Christmas coming up!

Onaie slippers make a really lovely gift as they are all one of a kind and handmade as well as being super comfy! They are lovingly made by a team of highly skilled craftspeople in the Polish Highlands, every single pair of Onaie slippers is truly one of a kind. As well as being sumptuously soft, cosy and luxuriously plush to the touch, they show off hand-embroidered patterns, artisanal exposed stitching and layers of super-soft shearling that cushion feet in a cloud of comfort with every single step.

They are a luxurious item as they are £35 but they are made so well that you can tell they really will last! I love the super cute design on the front too. The stitching around the front is beautifully done.

I am usually a size 4 or 5 and went for a 5 and they are a perfect fit either barefoot or with socks on.
