If you love your lip balms, as I do, you’ll love the various flavours of Hurraw Lip Balms. One of my favourite flavours is the pitta lip balm*, which contains coconut, lemongrass and peppermint. It’s luxuriously moisturising and tastes gorgeous. Hurraw lip balms are formulated based on ayurvedic dosha principles. They contain cold pressed organic sesame seed oils, plus organic coconut oil, organic cacao butter, and organic castor oil. Although £4.99 might seem a bitCONTINUE READING…

I love cocoa, coffee, peanut butter cups, and roast potatoes cooked in plenty of goose fat. The usual chocolate subscriptions include Thorntons, Hotel Chocolate, and other luxury chocolate brands, but take a look at the great chocolate gift collections* at I Love Cocoa. These guys are ethical in how they source the chocolate that they sell. They work with suppliers who guarantee cocoa farmers a higher than average market place. There is no middleman soCONTINUE READING…

I’m not sure about you, but there’s this huge ploy to get us to reduce our plastic usage in the UK, and I see nothing getting done about plastic packaging on fruits and vegetables at the supermarkets. It’s surrounding carrots, turnips, cabbage, mushrooms, apples, sweaty bananas – you name it. What happened to good old brown paper bags? Why can’t supermarkets get rid of the plastic bags, that just cause our fruits and vegetables toCONTINUE READING…

In this day and age, the media has their ‘eye’ on almost every adult when it comes to the abuse of children. They suspect almost everyone of grooming or abusing kids. Even some parents are suspected or even questioned of abusing their kids, just because they use discipline. I was smacked on the bottom as a child for being naughty, and I don’t think there is anything wrong with that. I wasn’t abused and ICONTINUE READING…

The main liquid probiotics available at the supermarkets today include Actimel and Yakult, but are you aware that there are various strains of bacteria that can have a vast impact on health. There may only be one or two strains of bacteria in Yakult or Actimel, but BioLive liquid probiotics contains 14 live strains of bacteria. I pay only £12.50 per month for a subscription that I set up many months ago, so I thinkCONTINUE READING…

Football is loved all over the world, and yet I can’t understand the worship of it. It is a ball game, as is cricket, golf, snooker, basketball, rugby etc. This is not a case of my being covetous toward these players, as it’s just a job to these people, but sports like these are so unequal in terms of real life. The players get paid thousands of pounds per week, and yet most of usCONTINUE READING…

If you’re a Christian, have you ever come across condemning Christians who just frown or look down at you because you struggle with something that they would label a sin? Addiction is difficult. In all honesty, I don’t think anyone ever likes his or her addiction – I certainly don’t like mine. Dermatillomania  makes me feel guilty, shameful, suicidal, self-hating, rejected, overwhelmed, and very few Christians, except my partner, have any real understanding. I noCONTINUE READING…

I was on my way back from Bury this morning, behind a Tiger bus that was indicating to come out, so I slowed down. The bus was turning right at Bury Road, and it was on green at the lights, but there wasn’t enough room for me to get into the left hand lane because of the bus, and then the lights turned to red. I saw the hand movements and anger of the driverCONTINUE READING…

all creatures great and small

I was visiting a friend at Bury A&E today with Christian, because he’s due to have an operation on his heart tomorrow, and I was hanging outside with them while they were enjoying a cigarette in the summer sun, and there were these tiny red ants on the wall. Wow oh wow, all creatures great and small. How great is our God. Even the smallest insects have wings. Enjoyed a fresh coffee (get £5 offCONTINUE READING…
