A Sweet Smelling Home

25 Aug

When being contacted by the guys at Zoflora I wasn’t at all surprised by their findings

Freshly cut grass’ and ‘flowers’ are the most loved smells by us Brits.

Brits spend £7.7 billion each year maintaining the outside space around their homes.

Ensuring our home smells fresh and clean is also a top priority for us Brits according to a survey commissioned by Zoflora. Half of all Brit’s agree that smell is the first thing they notice when they walk into someone’s home.

More than three quarters of us admit that they would judge someone with a bad smell in their home or look at them in a negative light.

The smell of garden flowers are known to be the source of many pleasant recollections and the way that your home smells is just as important.

I’m already a big fan of Zoflora. Their range of concentrated antibacterial disinfectants are small but mighty when it comes to killing gems. The small bottle surprisingly goes much further than one would expect. The formula can be diluted 1 part Zoflora to 40 parts water to make full strength disinfectant for large areas, such as floors and bathrooms, making them hygienically clean and welcoming

With a child in the house who experiences numerous sensory sensitivities the smell of disinfectant can be one that is quite over powering. For this reason I will always try to use it while his at school but with such long holidays that luxury is taken away.

This is why I choose to use Zoflora! It floral fragrance amongst others is one that doesn’t upset Little man in the same way as other disinfectants. Bouquet, is a rich scent of warm wood and musk notes creating a heady seductive fragrance. We were sent a bottle to try and we found that it gave our home a really present scent.

I want my children to be able to get involved in chores, its a really important life lesson and for this reason I want the products we use to be pleasantly fragranced and safe for the children to use.

Zoflora’s has two new fragrances I can’t wait to try and these have been formulated inline with the above findings.

The two new scents will recreate the smells of British Country Gardens and Summer Bouquets. So, we can experiences some of our favourite smells all year round regardless of the weather.

Zoflora’s two new scents are that of Country Garden and Summer Bouquet.

Something Special For Mothers Day

15 Mar

Mothers day is almost here and if like me you’re a last-minute kinda girl, I suggest you get yourselves of to your nearest Sainsbury’s

Sainsbury’s are stocking gifts affordable to all budgets, including the pocket-money of those Little ones.

I remember back in the good old days (Yes, I say that like I’m not almost 30 but 60) I used to love getting my pocket-money and heading of to the shops with my grandmother to pick something special for my mother for Mothers Day.

Most of the time, this something special consisted of a box of black magic, a teddy with the words mum across its tummy, or some type of flower scented bath bombs. Now, although she would always eat the chocolate, the teddy normally sat collecting dust and the bath bombs… well, I suspect, she still has a draw full of them somewhere.

Admittedly a couple of pound doesn’t get you all that far, however, it would seem that a lot more retailers are budgeting for the mini spenders as well as those grown up shoppers.

Here’s an example of some lovely little pocket-money buys that Sainsbury’s have in store and online

    This Mum Plaque is a steal at just £1 and it actually taste quite yummy for a quid.

You can also pick up a pretty pink Net of hearts again for just a £1, makes a lovely additional gift or for those with not much to spare a thoughtful little token of love

For just under £3 your money will buy you this super cute Pink Satin style Handbag filled with truffles £2.69 I tried these and wow they are yummy, though it did leave me wanting more and sadly you only get about 4 per purse, but still we are taking pocket-money prices.

I Particularly love this Mini Cupcake Chocolate’s costing just £2.49, they are dead cute with a pink and white design and are chocolate all the way through. These were so pretty, I felt half bad eating them.

How about a pretty white heart-shaped cushion that displays pretty pink lettering, spelling out the words “Love you Mum” a very sweet little gift for £5

If it’s not chocolates your after, Sainsbury’s have plenty of beautiful fresh flowers throughout stores this week.

Again, there is something to suit all budgets.

There are pretty coloured bouquets and gorgeous plants to choose from, the perfect gift for a green fingered mum.

Bouquets are full of beautiful fresh smelling spring floral arrangements from Roses to Tulips all in a dazzling display array of shades.

One of my favourite has to be these beautifully scented lavender tree in Zinc tin £20. I’ve never really been a massive fan of lavender, though these do look pretty.

So, don’t panic! If you’re anything like me, then you’ll still need to grab ahold of a gift before Sunday and probably getting yourself in a bit of a state about it!

Just pop down to your nearest Sainsbury’s to check out these fantastic gift ideas, plus a great deal of others besides.

Thankfully for me, I have one right at the bottom of my road 🙂

A WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY.

7 Apr

Wow I really could not of asked for a better birthday, It was perfect, Just the way I wished for it to be.

I woke up pretty early. Being the first member of the household up and about I made myself a nice cup of tea and settled down on the sofa and started to read a magazine. Just then I heard little feet making there way down the stair’s It was little man and Alice. “HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUMMY” So sweet, they had made me a card each and Alice gave me a teddy and little man had me a plant which he had got for me when out with my sister yesterday. What a lovely  way to start my birthday. Later that day they greeted me again with some stunning red roses. Bless um, how cute. Who ever said children with Aspergers have little feeling’s were wrong. My little man is full of them him and his little sister Alice gave me a wonderful day.
