eFrame : Made to measure frames

I was asked a couple of weeks ago if I would like to try out the online company eFrame and its services.  I have actually had a couple of prints waiting to be framed for a 2/3 years now, one of which had gotten slightly damaged I’d been waiting so long to frame it.  Now they are framed I don’t know why I spent so long deliberating, as its such a quick, easy and cost-effective way of framing your artwork or photographs.

Edel Weiss from Siin

I was asked to try the Edelweiss Travel Kit from Siin.  I was so  intrigued after visiting the site, I had to give it a try.  Siin is an innovative skin care range from Austria.   Edelweiss (named after the mountain flowering plant) extract that has been added to the range of skin care products. I like the idea of a flower, which blooms whatever harsh mountainous weather throws at it being used in skin care. Edelweiss has been used as a healing remedy for century’s, so it makes sense that they have developed this in a skin care range.

Edition Edelweiss harnesses the power of over 40 unique active ingredients found naturally
in the Edelweiss plant in a high dosage siin complex of precious active ingredients. These
ingredients have an antibacterial effect, are high in antioxidants and reduce harmful free
radicals. The flavonoids and tannins in Edelweiss promote skin tightening, stimulate blood
circulation and encourage cell renewal.
Edelweiss is a rare and protected flower and the plants used for Edition Edelweiss are grown
in controlled organic farming plantations. The unique variety used here is patented and
sustainable.

My Vision : Taking Contact Lenses

After meeting up with Acuvue at BritMums Live this year, it got me wondering about my own experience of wearing contact lenses. I had chatted with them about my own daughter, then 11 and about to start secondary school and her wish to wear them.  It wasn’t until I met them, that I knew that children as young as 5 wear lenses. Since that meeting Nia has started school and is loving wearing her new contacts. Continue Reading
