Raising kids is a messy job. I’ve never thought myself to be a clean freak, but ever since the birth of my children, the sight of strewn food, clothes or toys has the ability to make my temple throb. The worst of it is the food. Ever since we started weaning our firstborn, there has been an ever-growing occurrence of crumbs and food particles in the most unlikely of places.
For the longest time, we made do with cheapy vacuums. We used to have a VonHaus stick vacuum which did a good job for a year before it fell apart. ... (Read more)
We’ve got a nice growing collection of cleaning product reviews on the website here. If you’ve read my previous posts on the popular Method products, you may know that motherhood has spurred me to purchase more eco-friendly and less toxic and chemical-laden cleaning products.
Like a lot of people, we’ve always tended to use Fairy washing up liquid. It’s that bog standard option that we never really question. I have tried cheaper options in the past and they never clean as well or last as long. Fairy really does get the job done and is usually always on offer ... (Read more)
This is going to be a rather awkward post. I am not going lie it’s going to be super awkward, maybe a little cringe. I don’t have much of a intro becuase I am going to doing my first Instagram made me buy it post and review the Hygie Cup. This product is used in the bathroom where you fill it with water to clean your private parts…(I can’t believe I am doing this!)
Okay let’s get serious. As Muslims we must keep ourself clean at all times so we can adhere to the 5 daily prayers. This means we ... (Read more)
If you’ve read my previous post on the Popular Method Anti Bacterial spray, you would know that since motherhood, I have become more conscious of the cleaning products I use on a daily basis. The idea of touching my pure baby after being in contact with harsh chemicals was enough to make me spend a little bit more money on more non-toxic cleaning products rather than buying the cheap supermarket products as I had always done.
I’m not perfect and I can’t claim to use all non toxic products for the whole house but I’m making small changes here ... (Read more)
About a 2 months ago, something tragic happended. I was in the bathroom and I accidently dropped my favourite beard oil in the sink and it smashed everywhere. It was a travesty because there was still a solid third of oil left and I didn’t have a backup oil. So I decided to buy a Beard Oil from Hundred (Beard Company) from Amazon to see if it was worth it.
Now, I have not bought Beard Oil from Amazon for about 3 years. Mainly becuase I have been using Back2DRoots Beard Oil which I have reviwed and I recommend you ... (Read more)
In the second post in my series, I’m back with another post on an item I purchased through an Instagram advert. Last time, I reviewed eco-friendly laundry capsules from Smol which were delivered through your postbox. I thought the Instagram algorithm had done pretty well to target me as a mum of a small child who always seems to have endless piles of laundry to do these days.
The next product I was targeted with, where daily contact lenses from a company called Hubble. Again, Instagram was quite spot on with targetting me for the ad as I have been ... (Read more)
This post is more of a recommendation then review for all my bearded fellows. It’s funny but I feel like I have an instant connection when I see someone else with a beard. Normally it comes with me giving a slight nod of approval like we are members of a secret beard club. Even my son only trusts going to men with a beard. If you are clean-shaven then he stares you out until you feel like confessing a past crime!
Now we all know having a beard is a commitment in itself. It’s kind of similar to getting a ... (Read more)
How’s your week going, readers? I thought I’d try to start a short series of posts trying and reviewing things I’ve bought off Instagram adverts. I’m sure there are people who know much more about all the algorithms that social media sites such as Instagram, Facebook and youtube use to figure out what demographic you belong to and as such what products you may be interested in purchasing.
I do think it’s pretty cool that the adverts are tailored based on who you follow and the content you consume so no two people are guaranteed the same adverts. I would ... (Read more)
One of our goals is to review products that really have a positive impact on our lifestyle and health. The past few months we have been looking at a water filter system because we were about to wean our baby, our location was not great for water and we were fed up of purchasing water bottles. So we finally purchased the Fluoride Water Filter Pitcher by Klar Water and within a short time, it’s left quite an impression.
Since moving to the Midlands we have struggled with the taste of water due to the high fluoride level. In our first ... (Read more)
If you read my review a while back on the popular Method Anti Bacterial spray, you would know that I’m trying to work on being more conscious of which cleaning products I use. I still mostly use generic cleaning and laundry products that are on offer but I try here and there to opt for more natural alternatives when I can.
I never used to use fabric conditioner in the past. Is that a shocking admission? Am I part of an uncouth and uncivilised minority who knows nothing about laundry etiquette? Possibly. But for the past few years of ... (Read more)
