Still on the hunt to try more vegan snacks and I came across emily crisps. They are crisps that are good for you and one of your five a day as they are veg or fruit based. You can buy them in health shops as well as certain supermarkets and they taste so much better than a standard pack of potato based crisps!

I am literally in love with the sweet potato based ones! I tried the ones with chilli and lime as well as the salted ones and they are both amazing. I just love sweet potato but I had never tried them in a crisp form like this, yumm.

I think I prefer the veg based ones as I am not a massive fruit person anyway but the pineapple and apple ones were still really good.

My other favourite was the french beans and sugar snap peas. They were so crunchy and just tasted so good and healthy. I am literally hungry and craving these right now as I type this haha.

Really impressed with the whole range and will be adding them to my weekly shop for sure 🙂

Have you tried any of the range?

I don’t often dress up, I am usually at home in my pjs or if I go out I wear black jeans and a nice top.

I decided I wanted to make more of an effort as I had a few events coming up that I wanted to look a bit more glamorous for, so I got my hands on a few bits from Femme Luxe.

Femme Luxe is a website that I had seen a lot about on Twitter and Instagram and everyone seemed to comment on how cheap the dresses were and what good quality they were so I decided it was worth checking out.

Black Bandeau Split Leg Ruched Maxi Dress £22.99

I ordered this in a size 8, I usually wear a 10 in clothes but I like mine baggy, so opted for an 8 as these type of dresses are meant to be fitted and being strapless I don’t want it slipping down! It fits perfectly and I love the split down the leg. The length is perfect too and it looks good with flat shoes or heels.

I was really impressed with the feel of the dress, the material was soft and stretchy. I think this would look beautiful in red too, may clash with my green hair haha so maybe might get one when I change my hair!

Black One Shoulder Ruched Slinky Midi Dress £19.99

As with the dress above, I went for this in a size 8. It fits really well and is similar to the material of the other dress. It is quite tight and stretchy so I was unsure how it would look once on and I worried my underwear would show but I just put on plain knickers and a strapless bra and you couldn’t even see underwear lines or anything through the dress, really impressed!

Grey Knit Block Colour Jumper Dress £13.99

I got this in a small/medium which is an 8/10 and I love the style of it. It is more casual and on the baggy side so is a bit more of my style. I liked it so much I got it in the grey and the black. They also did it in pink.

It is knitted and is such great quality for the price, you oils normally pay a lot more for something like this. It is so cosy and you can wear it with bare legs or with leggings/tights if it was really cold.

This knitted dress would also look great with any shoe options, little dolly shoes, boots, or even knee high boots!

Femme Luxe

Black Knit Block Colour Jumper Dress £13.99

This is the same as the dress above, just in a different colour. I really like the contrasting sleeves and neck.

I don’t usually opt of knitted dresses and jumpers as they are often quite itchy but these are really soft and comfy.

The thing I like most about this website is that they have so many choices and something for everyone. I’m not a massive fan of tight revealing dresses and prefer to be covered up a bit but everyone has their own taste and they have such a wide variety of styles.

The prices are so reasonable too and considering how cheap they are, they are really great quality. I am always sceptical about ordering clothes online as you can’t feel them to know the quality but these are so good and for the quality I would have expected them to be more expensive!

The delivery turned up in only a couple of days and they were all packaged individually. I liked one of them so much I ordered it in two different colours! Most of the dresses had multiple colour options. I don’t tend to wear anything bright or it clashes worth my hair so black and grey are a great option.

Which one is your fave?

Since changing my diet, my skin is so much better. I still suffer with acne but it has calmed down so much and doesn’t break out as often. I can now concentrate on trying different skincare products to perfect my skin routine and try and tackle any spots and scarring that is left.

I have been using the beauty in balance daytox volcanic mud wash and mask as a mask as volcanic mud is so so good for your skin.

You can use it as a wash by washing it off immediately or if you want to use it as a mask you can leave it on for 5 minutes. it helps to draw the impurities out of your skin and leaves your face so soft and clean feeling. I love trying out masks and love ones like that that you can really feel working!

You can feel see and fell how it detoxifies your skin using its active plant based ingredients. You can buy it from waitrose for £20 and they also do another mask I have heard great things about.

What is your favorite type of mask?

We are a nation of animal lovers, and it’s fair to say that our pets have our hearts. Naturally the welfare of our four legged friends is high on our minds, as pets really do make a house a home and become part of the family. Just like humans, the health of pets needs monitoring and treating to keep them at their happiest and healthiest. As owners, their welfare is our responsibility and our joy. So here’s what to consider to keep them living their best life…

Learn About Their Specific Requirements

Every breed of animal has different characteristics, and before picking a pet to love, you should put the time into researching their specific requirements. Pets are easy to fall in love with, but they demand a lot of commitment, money and time, often through many years. You may be looking for puppy rearing tips now, but are you prepared to be researching a keto diet for dogs with cancer in a decade or so? Taking on pets is a change to your lifestyle, and you have to be prepared for that and understand want the needs of the specific breed you have chosen are. Think about the time you can dedicate, how it might affect any travel plans and the cost of ownership.

Provide The Right Diet

It can be tempting to spoil your pet with food as a sign of affection, but this isn’t the best way to show love – providing them with a nutritious, well balanced diet is. If you don’t look up advice on feeding the breed of animal you have it’s easy to over feed and cause weight gain and health issues. Your vet should be able to advise you on the most suitable food for your pet.

Ensure They Get Enough Exercise

Different pets need different levels of exercise, and this is an important concern when deciding what kind of animal and what breed will fit your life – or help you get fitter. A large dog is going to need several longer walks a day but smaller breeds may need less or other pets might be more suitable. Pets also need stimulation and an owner who can play games with them. It isn’t just dogs – other pets like cats and rabbits also need this physical and mental contact for their wellbeing. If you have a house pet it’s all the more important, as being of limited opportunity to exercise they are more prone to serious health issues like heart disease and arthritis.

Make Grooming A Regular Event

Having a well groomed animal isn’t just about the way they look – regularly brushing pets with fur helps you to identify lumps, parasites and scratches and stop them developing into something bad. It also ensure their coats are well conditioned and removes dead hair that will otherwise be shed on your carpet. Plus brushing your pet can be calming and great way to bond.

Make Sure You Train Them

A well trained pet is a happy and safe pet, so make sure you train yours well. If they are well trained, especially for dogs, it means that they can take part in more activities. Short, regular training sessions with plenty of positive behaviour reinforcement for your pet is the way forward.

Water is something we need to drink to survive. It is not practical or good for the environment to drink bottled water all of the time so most of us would usually drink from a tap.

Do you we really know if this is safe of not? Is the water too hard or too soft or does it contain chemicals?

At home we currently use a water filter jug but we have been looking into possible getting a water cooler next year that would be plumbed in. I don’t really like the taste of tap water, it varies wherever you go and there is always the worry in the back of my mind as to if is it ok. 

At work in our office we have a water cooler and it is such a great idea. You have constant access to clean, fresh, safe drinking water and it is always chilled. I love how easy it is to use and how you know the water is always safe and you can also pick from two separate temperatures, cold or extra cold. Sometimes I find tap water just isn’t cold enough and you have to wait ages for it to get to the right temperate, meaning you are wasting so much water down the sink every time you get a glass. I try to drink 2 litres during the day at work, so just imagine how much would be wasted if I left the tap running every time I wanted a drink, just because it wasn’t cold enough!

I have been looking at Home2Office water coolers and they have such a great range to choose from. It is so important to do your research on things like this as it is a big investment. You can also visit sites like Customer Service Guru that can often offer discounts and voucher codes, as well as direct phone numbers to the companies customer service team if you have questions about a product before you buy it.

I think not only would a water cooler at home be convenient, but it would also save on wasted water from running the tap too much and it also would mean that I wouldn’t have to use a filter jug and I would know it was fresh and safe.

What do you think about having a water cooler at home? Is this something you would look into?
