Hello, I hope you had a great week.

Today I’m on the blog tour for Under the Love Umbrella by Davina Bell and illustrated by Allison Colpoys. My first thought is what a wonderful eye-catching cover for a children’s book.

A Green Life Is Great For You And The Planet

You might think that going green is just about helping the planet. But actually, it could help you too and greatly improve your life.

One of the obvious ways going green could help is through saving money.

By using less energy, you’ll also be spending less money on your bills which is fantastic. It certainly makes life easier when you’re trying to raise a family. To save money on your bills, you can start by switching on the heating a little less through the year. Instead, wrap up warm through winter and maybe buy some thicker curtains. If you do this, we’re sure there will be no need for those expensive fuel bills.

Here are few other ways going green could improve your life.

Become The Master Of Your Anxiety Beast

Anxiety is a horrendous condition. Rational or not, it’s all too real to the person experiencing it. Symptoms include sweating palms, increased heart rate, and panic attacks. And the worst part? Many people misinterpret the severity of anxiety. The strangest thing is, we all experience it in some form or another. It may not always go to the levels described above, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t anxiety. Do you avoid a room if you know there’s a spider in it? Do you fail to make health checkups when you need to? Both of these are examples of allowing anxiety to alter your behavior. So, even if you don’t think anxiety is something you suffer from, it may have more of an impact on your life than you think.

Lee Stafford Lighten Up Mirror Review & Giveaway

I have always been a fan of Lee Stafford products, so when I was asked to review the Lighten Up Mirror, I was very excited! Not only is it in one of my favourite colours, but it’s a very useful product that will stand out on my bathroom shelf. I will keep it in here for use in the very early mornings (I’m talking before 5am!). It’s very lightweight so great to transport to your dressing table if needed.

Lee Stafford Lighten Up Mirror

The Lighten Up Mirror arrived very well packaged in polystyrene inside the cardboard box. This is needed due to the breakable nature of the mirror. We don’t want 7 years bad luck do we?

What is the purpose of the Lighten Up Mirror?

So the purpose of the mirror is to complete your dressing area in style with the pink chrome mirror – I love this!

It has a soft warm illumination perfect for your beauty regime – Totally needed to cover up my bags under my eyes from the lack of sleep!

Double sided with a 360 degrees rotating angle to make sure you look glamorous from every angle – aww thanks, just what I need!

1x and 3x magnification for those close up moments when a steady hand is needed.
