Organii is a brand that I am a massive fan of anyway, I have tried so many of their products before abs always been really impressed so was excited to try their two newest products.

Hand gel

The hand gel contains alcohol to kill bacteria, as well as aloe vera and tea tree for added benefits. Aloe vera is anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-viral and anti-fungal and is excellent at hydrating and moisturising the skin, which makes this a very appropriate ingredient in hand sanitiser as often using too much can dry out your hands.

Benefits of this hand gel:

  • Helps kill germs
  • Effective cleanser
  • Doesn’t dry your hands out
  • Moisturising and hydrating ingredients
  • Quickly Absorbs without feeling sticky
  • A little goes a long way
  • Handbag size
  • Natural Ingredients

Surface spray

I think this is great to keep in your handbag or pocket to carry around with you as we are all using hand gels for our hands but surfaces can often be neglected. If you are using a door that other people have touched without clean hands then a spray like this is ideal to use before touching the door handle! It is also perfect fo using on the handles of shopping trolleys.

The natural formula of this surface cleaner includes alcohol and organic tea tree oil and is tough on killing germs. Tea Tree Essential Oil has anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties.

Benefits of the surface spray:

  • Helps Kill Germs
  • On-the-go cleaning
  • Small size

Do you carry around a surface spray as well as hand gel?

Freedom Chocolate

This post contains gifted items:

Freedom Chocolate hand crafts luxury artisan chocolate that happens to be Vegan & Multi Allergy Friendly, Our ingredients are ethically sourced and we use eco friendly packaging.

The Independent included them in their Best Vegan Bars in January!

Christmas Indulgence Box

£17.95

This box contains 8 x 30g bars

2 each of Gingerbread, Peppermint Mocha, Mulled Wine Spice and Cranberry & Orange.

They are individually wrapped so could be given as a whole of split up to give to a few different people as gifts or to keep a couple for yourself!

It’s nice to be able to get luxurious chocolate that is vegan and allergy friendly as it can often be hard to find different flavours and types of chocolate if you have a dairy allergy as free from products are usually just dark chocolate with no flavour.

I really like the simple packaging of these and how they show they are vegan and free from on the bottom as well as clearly showing the flavour.

Usually vegan chocolate tastes slightly different to what I regularly eat but I was so impressed with these, you wouldn’t even know they were free from or vegan as they just taste like really nice posh chocolate!

The range of flavours in the Christmas box is unique and I am surprised how much ai enjoyed the mulled wine one! They also do lots of other regular flavours which you can buy in mini or full sized bars but being November these are ideal for Christmas as it’s soon creeping up on us!

My favourite had to be the peppermint mocha as I love anything minty and think this sums up Christmas really well. I also really enjoyed the cranberry and orange and really want to try their mylk orange one as well.

The box would be great to treat a loved one to whether they are vegan or not and you could get it shipped straight to them as we are all limiting who we see next month in the UK due to covid lockdown. It’s great that you can buy treat boxes like this and send to someone without having to leave the house!

What type of chocolate reminds you of Christmas?

WooWoo is a British health, self care and pleasure brand made by women for women. Their range of natural, paraben free products have quietly been gathering cult status and a loyal fan club of beauty fans across the UK.

Tame it! Hair removal

Their hair removal cream is specifically designed to be gentle to use in your intimate area and is so easy to quick to use in the bath or shower. It leaves your skin smooth and soft as well as being hair free and doesn’t irritate at all!

Saddle sore! Soothing balm

This balm is great to apply after shaving to help protect the area. It’s easy to use and helps to soothe any sore areas after shaving. It keeps the skin moisturised and creates a barrier to protect it.

Cranberry wipes

These effectively do the same job as an intimate wash but are a lot easier to use on the go! These are great to pop in your bag and use as needed. I think something like this is great to use when you are on your period and want to freshen up down there. You can also get the wipes in chamomile and aloe vera scent.

You have to be careful what products you use on intimate areas so it’s important you only use things specifically designs for that area of the body.

Have you heard of this brand?

Five Things To Do To Challenge Yourself

Collaborative post:

We are here to live our lives as well as we can, but often, we slip into a rut of boredom and worry. It’s perfectly normal to have dips in life: after all, it cannot be exciting all the time! The thing is, there are days where you will want to challenge yourself and go a little further to feel like you are living life to the fullest. The challenges we give ourselves make us feel more confident, more alive, because we have achieved something that we set out to do.

If we allow our anxiety to immobilize us and let us down, it’s very easy to decide that we are not worthy of achieving any of the challenges to which we set. Ships are safe when they are in the docks, but that’s not where ships were supposed to be, are they? So, don’t allow your ship to be still when you should be riding oceans and exploring. You can challenge yourself and let go of the insecurities that you feel at long last. Below, we have five things that you could do to challenge yourself at last!

1 – Create Something New. We can build and make and our creative process is there to help us to feel as if we’ve achieved something. Creating something new can help you to feel like you are worthy of life. It can be anything from creating a brand new cake to creating a plan to live your life by – creativity is a must if you want to feel good!

2 – Push Your Boundaries. One of life’s biggest challenges is in pushing the boundaries of what you are comfortable to do. If you haven’t ever done the 3-peaks challenge, schedule yourself onto the next available one. If you haven’t ever sailed on a ship before, book a mini cruise or a ferry across waters. Pushing your boundaries can help you to achieve so much more than you would ever do in life!

3 – Listen Intently. It’s so hard to listen to people without giving them your advice. You want to help and solve problems, but sometimes people just need an ear to be able to vent. Sometimes, unsolicited advice can feel like judgement and you want to avoid judging your friends.

4 – Say No Without Guilt. You cannot pour from an empty cup, and that means that you should say no to those who don’t bring you joy. Saying no shouldn’t make you feel guilty and it should instead make you feel empowered.

5 – Do Something New. It doesn’t matter what it is, you need to do something new. It can be as small as trying prawns when you’ve always turned your nose up at seafood. It can be something as big as selling your house and travelling across the world. No matter what, you need to do something new to challenge yourself to face the unknown. By taking the time to challenge yourself, you can finally start to bloom into the person you want to be.

It’s Never a Bad Idea to Use Responsive Web Design

Collaborative post:

The experience your users have online will make or break you’re the success of your website, and its ability to transition content into purchases and conversions.

Despite the fancy functions your websites may have, the fact is if your website doesn’t function the same across a variety of devices then there’s high chance, you’re not going to make any sales.

Whether you like it or not, your customers attention span isn’t as great as you may think, so you’re going to need to keep them hooked. Making the simple switch to responsive web design guarantees that user visits are consistent, despite which device they may be using.

Be on a laptop, tablet or smartphone, your customer believes they deserve the very best experience and will only be drawn to continue browsing your site if they see you have made adjustments to accommodate this belief.

This is another reason why Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) must become your partner in crime in the online world.

SEO Runs the Online Climate

Embracing responsive website design enables users to easily alter between laptops and desktop computers to smartphone and the orientation of each device. The website will now modify to whichever size screen the device has, without losing website quality.

Responsive website programming means that smaller screens present a minimum number of columns and text which means users no longer must zoom into mountains of text. The fact is that the quality anticipated by online users today is a lot higher than you may think.

As an up-to-the-minute business owner, your audience expects that you meet their online needs as well as lifestyle needs. But doing so reaps rewards such as online conversions and customer loyalty.

Where to Begin

Now is not the time to be scared. The online world may seem daunting but let’s remember, it’s about brining your users and business together. So, with that in mind, let’s discuss thumb-friendliness and mobile optimisation.

Over 50% of global website traffic comes from mobile devices, so it’s a great starting point to begin optimising your website for mobile usage. The user’s need for convenience prevails over extensive imagery and long pages of written content. Finding your products whilst on the go shouldn’t be a challenge on your responsive website.

In the past, businesses would operate two different websites which hold the same purpose but are designed for use on one device, which would be desktop or mobile. In light of this, cost effectiveness also comes into play with responsive web design – what sensible business owner will spend more than they need to?

All you need to ensure is that the layout of your website as easy thumb-friendliness (we’ll explain in just a second) and high resolution. Thumb friendliness ensures that every button and the navigation bar is laid out in using a centre alignment for ease of access.
