Review: Green People Organic Children Sticky Hand Sanitiser

Green People have produced a fabulous organic hand sanitiser specifically with little people in mind.  The Organic Children sticky hand sanitiser, which was awarded the Bizzie Baby Gold Award for 2012, has a refreshing citrus fragrance and comes in a pump action dispenser that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand.

The sanitiser squirts out in a light and bubbly foam that can be put straight onto little hands and can be squirted onto a cloth to clean sticky and mucky faces.  It can also be used when you are on the go to clean and wipe down toys and high chairs that are looking a little dirty and unloved before little one enjoys using either of the two.

This natural hand sanitising product uses Tea Tree extract as the key anti-bacterial ingredient and contains 96% certified organic ingredients.   It is suitable for sensitive skins, even those prone to eczema, psoriasis and other skin allergies and as it doesn't use any harsh chemicals, it won't dry out the skin.

I've used this a number of times with my daughter who loves rubbing her foamy hands together to get them nice and clean.  You don't have to worry about it harming your child as it is safe to ingest, so there is no need to make sure their hands are dry before eating anything.

The Organic Children sticky hand sanitiser RRP is £9.45 for a 100ml with over 200 squirts of germ fighting foam in each pump action bottle.   It can be purchased directly through the website or from selected John Lewis, Ocado or Independent Healths stores.

Listography: My Top 5 Things I'd Like to be Reincarnated As

I'm still pretty darn sure that I am a reincarnation of someone from Henry VIII's Court (hopefully not one of the many wives) as I absolutely adore that era and could read books and watch documentaries and movies on the subject for hours on end and still be left wanting to know more.

Kate over at Kate Takes 5 has made reincarnation the most recent subject of her Listography.  So, after a little bit of thought, these are my top 5 things that I'd like to be reincarnated as when I leave this wonderful world one day.

1.  A Fly on the Wall
I'd like to start off as a fly.  Most people at some stage of their life have wanted to be a fly on the wall and see exactly what goes on behind closed doors.  I'm nosey by nature so I think this would be fun for the 21 days of my little fly life.  Hopefully then I'll go on to option 2.

2.  Some sort of Author
I have an idea of what I'd like to write about (like I'm telling you lot!) and if I had already been a fly on the wall I would have had time, albeit it very short, to add to my plot and basic development of each of my characters.  I don't think I'd be too bothered if I wasn't well known as I'm a bit odd like that, but I'd like to be published one day all the same.  I think that would be rather nice.

3.  An Archaeologist
As a child I wanted to be an archaeologist, discovering old dinosaur bones, remains, castles, ruins and things like that.  I drive my husband to distraction with all the Time Team episodes and other historical programmes that I record.  Maybe I could have a crack at when I retire, too?

4.  One of the many Apple Products
Who wouldn't want to be loved, adored and desired?!  Yes, there is that whole thing about being tossed aside for the younger model but the the majority of Apple owners who love the products simply keep the older models when they upgrade...like a sort of Apple, um,  harem...hmmm...might have to rethink that one.

5.  One of the Dog's in my Parents House
We grew up with at least 3 or 4 dog at any given time.   As one passed away, another one was rescued from some awful fate and then added to the family.  In winter my mom would put the dog blankets in the tumble dryer for a few minutes and then gently place these warm comforters over each of the dogs and tuck them in.  I can still remember our Bull Terrier, Benson, letting out little sighs of delight as he was wrapped up snug as a bug, almost smiling as he drifted off for his early morning nap.   The dogs ate well, slept well, were cuddled, given treats and generally well loved and cared for.  It really is a dogs life!

Review: yoomoo frozen yogurt

I've recently discovered the absolutely delicious yoomoo frozen yoghurts.  The home range is made from a 70% natural British sourced yogurt base with natural ingredients and is low in fat, which means that you are supporting local British suppliers and enjoying a relatively guilt free treat at the same time.  Fabulous!

I sampled (devoured?!) the Angelmoo which is a natural flavoured frozen yogurt with blueberry sauce swirls, a perfect scattering of mixed berries and topping of vanilla flavoured pumpkins seeds.  A true heavenly delight which left me rather sad when I reached the bottom of the pot.

My husband taste tested the strawbswirlmoo which is a natural and strawberry flavoured frozen yogurt with generous strawberry sauce swirls and strawberry pieces.  I had to buy him his own pot because I knew that I most likely wouldn't want to share mine!  

In South Africa we have a local brand of frozen yoghurt that we grew up with and until recently, in my opinion, not much could compare to the taste and texture of it but from my husband's reaction as well as my own, our kitchen freezer will soon be stocking the yoomoo range on regular basis.  I would say that is a pretty positive result!

Available in 150ml pots (RRP £1.79) and 750ml tubs  (RRP £3.49) yoomoo frozen yogurts are waiting to be discovered by you in these 7 scrumptious flavours:


The yoomoo frozen yoghurts "fro yo" range can be purchased at Asda, Tesco, Waitrose and Ocado, Sainsbury's, Morrison's and the Co-Op.  

Note:  The blogger was given a voucher to purchase, sample and review one of the frozen yogurts in the yoomoo range.  The other pot was purchased directly by the Blogger (as they couldn't resist it!).  All views are, however, completely unbiased and the Blogger's own and

How working mothers can be comfortable yet stylish

Being a mother is one of the most important jobs you can have, and is a rewarding but sometimes tough experience. Mums are on the go from the moment they wake up to the moment they go to sleep and having a full or part time as well doesn’t make things easier. It can feel like you’ve already worked half a day before you even get to work, especially when your morning involves getting children to nursery or school. Work doesn’t finish when you leave your job for the day; there’s always a lot to do once you and the kids are home.
So wouldn’t it make life a lot easier if you could feel really comfortable in your workwear? Office wear can be stifling, especially if you feel you have to wear restrictive trouser suits and high heels to be taken seriously. But when time is of the essence and there are errands to be completed, you might not always have the chance to get changed. So to make life easier, instead of wearing work clothes that are uncomfortable and restrictive, choose style options which help you look professional whilst still being able to run around after your little ones!


Whilst trouser suits can be uncomfortable, they undoubtedly look smart. They also provide more versatility for women who do not want to wear skirts. However, trouser suits can often end up being ill-fitting which will be even more uncomfortable and you may lose that professional edge. A good alternative is lose the suit jackets and just wear a pair of smart trousers and a sophisticated blouse. Depending on the time of year will depend on what materials you go for, depending if you want to warm up or cool down. However there will always be a lot of choice regardless of the season. A statement blouse will mean your outfit will look complete without a jacket, and will help you feel less restricted.


Shoes always seem to be the hardest part of an outfit to get right, style and comfort-wise. I think this is even harder when you’re looking for shoes to wear to work. Some women may feel that high heels are the way to go when it comes to looking professional, but that’s not always the most practical option – especially when it comes to running round after kids. Even carrying a spare pair of shoes around with you can be a pain, especially if you have to get public transport – rush hour is bad enough as it is without dragging round a heavy bag. Look into investing a pair of work shoes that are comfortable and professional – from flat shoes to mid-height heels, there is a lot of choice available out there. 

Changing what you wear to work so you will be more comfortable will help you when you need to change back in to mum mode once you leave the office. A massive spending spree for new clothes won’t necessary (unless you want to have a splurge!) but making a few tweaks to your wardrobe will not only help you feel comfortable but also more confident – making life as a working mother a little bit easier.
