I have teamed up with the lovely girls over at Social Berry to bring you my CURRENT MUST HAVES. These items have entered my life over the last few weeks, month, and I don't ever want them to leave (he he). With some skincare wonders, foodie delights and the most fabulous slippers you will ever set your eyes on, there is something for everyone. Come see my new finds, and why you need them to!
Pretty You London Slippers
Okay, since receiving these beauty's I can't deny that I now dance around my house pretending I'm a cast member from Desperate Housewives/sex and the city/gossip girl (you get the jist), I bloody love them! Not only are they hands down the most comfortable slippers I have ever owned, I also think they look absolutely fabulous! The quality is second to none, and for the affordable price there are really no complaints from me. There are a wide variety of styles to choose from, I have shown some examples below (click to shop) or you can shop my slippers HERE or the full collection HERE. You know you want to dance around the house with me, right?
OWAY Hair Care
When I was around 14 I made the stupid mistake of chopping my hair off, bleaching it bright blonde (it was more yellow) followed by me then regretting it a few days later. Obviously then spent years using of clip in/glue in extensions which has left my hair less than luscious shall we say (dead) . When I saw Oway, I was immediately drawn to the fact they are Natural products, and they actually source some of their ingredients from their own Biodynamic Farm - finally something I can use without the worry of any chemicals on my hair! I chose to test out two of the products firstly the Moisturising Hair Mask - as I thought my hair deserved some TLC - I use this after I have just washed my hair, I apply it to damp hair and leave it to work its magic for 5-10 minutes. After rinsing and styling my hair I can instantly see/feel a difference. My hair is so much softer and smoother whilst looking shinier and healthier. I am going to start using it once a week to help protect my hair and keep it looking healthy.
The next product I tried was the Volumising Hair Bath - this was something my hair REALLY needed, I can't deny that I am a professional back-comber and I know that it's not doing my hair any good whatsoever, but with hair as flat as mine I can't not. I look like someone has greased my hair down it sits that tight to my head. I also use this after I have washed my hair and simply apply then rinse it out. I then blow dry it (nothing fancy, just your standard tilt your head down & hope for the best) and bobs your uncle I have some volume! After using this I don't need to back comb my hair half as much as usual and it leaves it with a natural lift I could never achieve with just styling alone.
I can firmly say that these two products will be staying in my hair care routine for the forseeable!

Until recently I have never really thought to much into using natural products etc, to be honest I was quite `naive and didn't really think about what I could be putting on my skin. So recently I have really been enjoying trying out natural products to see if there are any differences, and so far I have preferred them all! And this is no exception, the Miss Organics range are 100% natural hand blended products which are always organic. The face Oil leaves my skin looking brighter, moisturised and plumper. It gives me a healthy glow that I haven't been able to achieve with other products. Having dry lips I couldn't wait to try the lip balm, it really did work wonders for me. Its silky smooth and instantly soothed my sore lips. Over the past week it has reduced the dry patches and has allowed me to wear lipstick again with out feeling paranoid! I basically love them both.

Gathr- Cricket Flour Bars
Yes you aren't going crazy, that really does say Cricket Flour Bars, and yes that really does mean bars made from crickets. And yes at first I was scared, I felt like I was part of Im a Celeb - however they're actually a lot less scary than they sound, and I can't deny it, they are actually bloody delicious. Not only this did you know that Crickets are exceptionally high in protein, and unlike your standard Whey protein bars they are completely natural and not processed at all!
Don't take my word for it, try them for yourselves HERE. They come in different flavours with both the Coffee & Vanilla and the Raspberry Cacao ones I have tried being YUMMY!
Flower & White Meringues
As soon as I saw these little beauty's inside the box, my initial reaction was how they survived the mail! But they are packed so well and wrapped to perfection that none a single scratch was made on any of the goodies! My second thought was "goodbye diet" but I soon got over that and helped myself to one or two (or maybe 5- but who's counting?). Not only do they look Oh so Instagramable, (that's right I'm still talking about Meringues) they also taste amazing! I keep thinking how fab these would look at a dinner or party, perfectly laid out across tables. They come in a variety of colours/shapes/sizes you name it! It just depends if you can stop yourself eating them before your friends arrive! You can shop the full range HERE. Along side these beauty's Flower & White also stock Custard, Muffins & more... I am now officially desperate to try the rest!
Timeless Truth Eye Mask
The Rejuvenating Bio Cellulose Eye Mask was a product I was so excited to try. With both my jobs involving a LOT of computer work my eyes take a lot of strain and to be honest I know I am not doing them any good at all. I suffer with tired puffy eyes after staying up until the early hours ensuring I am on top of my blog work and to say they were in need of some TLC is an understatement. Whilst using the mask my eyes felt soothed, cooled and relaxed. I think I almost fell asleep (ok I did actually fall asleep), but the results after were wonderful. My eyes instantly looked brighter, less puffy and more awake, and they felt it to! I can't wait to pick some more up so that I can treat my eyes more often, and hopefully enable me to look half awake heading into work rather than scaring colleagues with my Zombie like look.

HARIBO - Frenzy Carnival
Kids & Grown ups love it so, the happy world of Haribo..... We all know you just sung along to that in your head, didn't you?
Should I be embarrased to say that this has to be some of my FAVE blogger mail EVER? I really was like a little kid when I opened the box - the colours and patterns took my straight to Rio and I couldn't wait to give them a try! The Frenzy Carnival Haribo editions have the same shapes as your usual Haribo Starmix & Tangfastics but with a twist on the flavours to take you somewhere Tropical! With flavours such as Lemonade & Lime, Mango & Melon and Grapefruit & Pineapple (yum) they just taste like summer!
Which is your favourite? I've got to admitt, I'm a sucker for the Eggs, or the rings (which I still wear on my finger and say i'm engaged, but everyone does that, right?
Let me know if you pick some up & which your fave was!
Pic's Peanut Butter
I liked Peanut butter a lot until trying Pic's - now I bloody love it! Before looking into it I hadn't realised the amount of rubbish some brands put into their peanut butter. With Pic's the only ingredients are Peanuts & sea salt (No salt options are available) so you know exactly what your eating, and why it tastes so good! Normally a smooth butter lover, I just decided to give the crunchy a try (for review purposes only of course) and to my surprise I actually preferred it to the smooth! It isn't like your normal crunchy peanut butter where its basically smooth with a few peanuts thrown in, it actually has a bite to it, with a completely different texture to it and different sized peanut bits inside! Yum. Just please trust me in that you need to try it!

SUKRIN is a brand who allows you to have all your usual naughty treats in a much healthy form, without having to compromise on the taste! They stock an array of natural zero calorie sugar alternatives, whole food flours and low carb, sugar free easy to mix bakes. Sound to good to be true? Trust me its not! They kindly sent me across some goodies to try! Firstly lets start with the natural sugar alternative, this has to be the favourite of mine. No matter how hard I try I simply don't like my morning tea or weetabix without sugar, I can't lie, I just need a bit of that sweetness! This Zero Calorie Sugar Alternative allows me to have that little treat without feeling so guilty, and I can now say I am converted because it still tastes the same! My boyfriend swears by the Peanut Flour which is 50% pure protein, which is great as he is currently trying to gain muscle. He actually adds a teaspoon to his porridge which he says tastes amazing! If you are feeling extra naughty they have the Sugar Free Milk Chocolate, I call this my Friday treat (however I have definitely had it on a Wednesday, and a Monday oops) they are delicious! The silky smooth chocolate melts in your mouth and also comes in an Almond and Sea Salt flavour.
