Sunday Catch Up - Snow, Pevonia Botanica & Fry's

Happy Snow Day everyone! This is the view from my window this morning. I think we have 4 inches of snow :)




This week I had a lucky streak and won a Twitter RT competition being hosted by Pevonia Botanica.  My prize is pictured below, a Spa at Home Essentials Kit.  Prior to discovering Pevonia on Twitter I had not heard of the Company. I was attracted to them because products are free from parabens, alcohol, lanolin, mineral oil, PABA, Urea, SLS, artificial colours, formaldehyde and cruelty free.  The kit is eco-packaged, environmentally friendly and contains a scrub, moisturiser, shower gel, bath salts and a soy candle.




Whilst I am talking about skincare, I may as well take the opportunity to up date you regarding my current cleanser.  You may remember from a previous post click here that I trying out Herbfarmacy and then 27 Skincare.  The Herbfarmacy cleanser is definitely not the correct product for my skin but I have continued with the one from 27 Skincare. I am loving it.  My skin feels and looks great. I decided to add a toner to my routine and I am seeing the benefits alongside this cleanser. I will review my toner another time. 

If you saw my Valentine's Day Gift post (click here), you will have seen me mention Artwork By Angie.  I fell in love with the prints on her website and order one for myself.  I am really happy with my choice and now have to decide where I should display it in my home.


Last weekend I stocked up on Vegan goodies at Holland & Barrett.  I found these "chicken" strips in the freezer section.



We discovered a Fajita kit in the back of the cupboard so made them for tea. These "chicken" strips were nice, not fantastic but they did the trick.  I can't eat Quorn because of my allergies so it's nice to find an alternative.



I like wraps, you can pile them up with all your favourite things.  This one has the "chicken" strips, lettuce, tomato, dairy free Tofutti cheese and Tiger Tiger dairy free & egg free mayonnaise. YUM


So, that folks sums up the bits and pieces that happened last week.  Enjoy the snow everyone.

  2. Love Herbfarmacy products, haven't tried out the other's yet. It's great reading reviews by other people as your eye's get widened to the range available. Not good for the bank balance though! Excellent picture, love the motto haha. Wraps are a firm favorite in our house, great for your stir-fried left overs :)

    1. What Herbfarmacy products do you like? Even though I didn't like the cleanser I would still be interested in trying other things from the range. I've never thought of putting stir fry leftovers in a wrap, what a good idea :)

    2. I like their meadowsweet balm the best,it's meant for muscles but I use it for everything from heels and elbows, to hands and lips :) Reminds me of the smell of marshmallows. Their foot cream is great too, can't say I'm sure about the cleanser either though, not sure about the moussiness :)

    3. I shall check out the balm, it was the smell I didn't care for with the cleanser plus I think it was a little drying on my skin

  3. Congrats on winning! That looks like a fun skincare kit to try out :)

    And the view outside is beautiful! I wish we were getting some snow here. We got tons in October and then nothing :/ It's nice to know that someone at least is getting wintery weather :)

    1. thank you :) I'm not upset the snow is disappearing I'm not a huge fan of the white stuff, but that does suck that you have spent the whole time working :(

  6. Wraps usually are my lazy saturday lunch. :D I just grab a bunch of tofu, toast and season them a bit and throw in some beetroot, greens and some cheese (or whatever I can find in the fridge). Love it!
