The Benefits of Using a Humidifier

A humidifier is a device that helps to increase the amount of moisture in a room. This helps to prevent dryness that can cause irritations in the body such as dry skin, dry throat, headaches, nose bleeds, cracked lips and other similar irritations. A humidifier can also be used to ease the symptoms of flu, and sinus congestion. It can actually be the difference between staying healthy at winter or getting a cold. Whilst using a humidifier sounds like a great idea, it’s essential that a humidifier is used correctly. Overusing a humidifier can potentially make respiratory problems worse, and… [Read More]

Wales Air Ambulance Real Rescues

As regular readers of my blog will know, I was lucky enough to be chosen to be part of Team Brecon Carreg. Team Brecon Carreg involves taking part in a number of running events throughout the year and raising money for Wales Air Ambulance. For every mile the team covers, £1, will be donated to Wales Air Ambulance. In April alone, we managed to raise an amazing £1,078! Last month, the team and I were lucky enough to visit Wales Air Ambulance at their base in Llanelli. I was amazed to learn that each year their helicopters attend around 2,500… [Read More]

A Visit to Wales Air Ambulance as part of #TeamBreconCarreg

As part of Team Brecon Carreg, my team mates and I were invited to the Wales Air Ambulance Base in Llanelli to find out more about what Wales Air Ambulance does. Just to give a brief overview, Team Brecon Carreg is a running team, split into North and South Wales. Each team is made up of 10 members. As part of Team Brecon Carreg we’ve been entered into a number of races across Wales, and the best part is that for every mile the team runs in training and in events, Brecon Carreg will donate £1 to Wales Air Ambulance….

I’m Part of Team Brecon Carreg #TeamBreconCarreg

When I started running, I had no idea how much of a positive effect it would have on my life. Not only have I lost weight, I’ve also had a complete lifestyle change. I eat better. I feel more energised, motivated and most importantly of all, I feel happier. Little did I know when I started running in March last year, that I would end up completing my first half marathon! Who knows. Maybe one day, I’ll pluck up the courage to run a full marathon! Until then, however, I’m happy running around my neighbourhood, plotting new routes and entering… [Read More]

Why fly when you can cruise?

When it comes to planning a holiday how many of us automatically think it will involve air travel? I for one have never really thought of any other way of travelling. I’ll decide on a destination, use review sites to check out some local hotels and then book my flight separately to try and save some money. What if I told you that you could actually go on holiday abroad without travelling by air? Cruises from the UK are becoming more and more popular and I can certainly understand why. Especially if you’re travelling with small children. My husband and I have… [Read More]

Let’s get kids playing outdoors again!

When you think back to your childhood, what do you remember most about how you spent your time? For me, it’s memories of playing outdoors with my friends and sister. I’d spend the whole day outdoors and would only return home for food, water or money to buy an ice lolly! I guess I was lucky that we had a lovely back garden. It was spacious, full of plants and had a pond at the end of it. There was a decked area with a picnic bench sat on it, which lead onto a big patch of grass. To the… [Read More]

Air Wick Essential Pearls Candle Review

I was really sent these new pearl candles to review from Air Wick. Essential Pearls is the new Air Wick candle with a core of scented pearls infused with essential oils and surrounded by a fragranced gel. In our home having a candle or air freshner in our bathroom is essential because the bathroom window opens into our porch. We always have our porch windows open, but even so sometimes certain smells (shoes left in our porch etc) can be left hanging around. I don’t tend to use spray air freshners as personally I don’t like them. They make me sneeze and… [Read More]
