Products I Have Tried This Spring

As a blogger, I get the opportunity to try various products and talk about them on Fashion and Style Police. I had the lovely pleasure of trying these products this spring and I have been dying to tell you all about. Trying new products every now and again is fun. I look forward to my Post Man coming every day because I know there will be at least 1 blogger mail for me, which is so cool. I bet he wonders what I do for a living 😊

This year, I would like to try new beauty brands I have never tried before. I am particularly interested in beauty brands that focus on promoting vegan & cruelty-free make up products. I have my eye on quite a few with an eco-conscious, vegan makeup brand being at the top of my Wishlist. But for now, here are all the details of the products I have been busy with in the last few weeks.


Pro Teeth Whitening Activated Charcoal Powder


Products this spring image


This Pro Teeth Whitening Activated Charcoal Powder is the way to get your teeth looking whiter. I have been using it for weeks now, along with my Oral B electric toothbrush and I can see a massive difference in the colour of my teeth already. It is now a few shades whiter and I am loving it,

This premium non-abrasive teeth whitening powder is made from finely ground coconut shell and Bentonite Clay. The formula helps to absorb the toxins and stains in the teeth whilst delivering essential minerals. It polishes the teeth, freshens the breath and is floride free.

Botonique Drink

Botonique is a unique non-alcoholic vegan-friendly drink, which can deliver the perfect, bubbly glass of fizz for those who love wine, but don’t want to, or can no longer, drink alcohol. The taste is very unique. It does not taste like a regular wine. It tasted more like a sparkling herbal drink.

Botonique contains the beneficial elements of Prelixir®, a unique blend of vitamins, minerals and amino acids which alcohol is known to deplete. This unique element means that Botonique is able to provide anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, alkalising, detoxifying and hydrating benefits, resulting in all the pleasure of drinking without the negative side effects. What is there not to like?

This drink retails at £6.99 for a 750ml bottle or £39 for a case of 6, Botonique is currently stocked by as well as

We all know the Lynx brand. Well it has launched its first-ever gender-neutral body spray in the UK, entitled Lynx Unity. The deodorant combines floral scents with the subtle notes of honeydew melon and sandalwood, to deliver a fresh and impactful fragrance.

Lynx Unity is available on shelves nationwide from Spring 2018, in 150ml can and retails at £3.15. This product comes in a sleek pink and black can that is compact enough to be packed discreetly.

Jamie Brooks, Lynx brand manager says, “Lynx Unity comes at a time when inclusivity and gender continues to be a prevalent conversation with young girls and guys across the UK. Unity is a versatile deodorant designed with everyone in mind, to celebrate individuality in whatever form it comes in, and to encourage everyone to feel confident in the person they want to be”.

Rosa Faia Beautyfull Louise Underwire Bra and Pant Set

I really like this Rosa Faia Beautyfull Louise Underwire Bra and Pant set. The delicate and cheerful design is such a beauty. The pretty butterfly print and floral embroidery on semi sheer tulle is just a beauty.

Eats from the Streets Food Festival

Who doesn’t love good food? I know I do. A delicious meal with a glass of wine is a perfect way to end a busy day!

Being a mother has made me embrace food more. Before motherhood, I could go a whole morning without breakfast or an afternoon without lunch. I could be too busy being busy, that I would forget to stop to feed the belly. But motherhood has completely changed all that. I am now fully responsible for feeding 2 fussy toddlers 24/7, which is no easy feat. The good news is that I know what they like and how they like it, which makes the meal times a lot more fun.

I have been busy testing my hands on a new recipe – Spaghetti Bolognese with Greek Yoghurt. I am collaborating with Broughton Shopping Centre Cheshire on their Eats from the Streets Festival to bring to you this yummy dish. Broughton Shopping Centre Cheshire will bring street food flavours from all over the world to Flintshire, Cheshire, this weekend (17th & 18th June) with its Eats from the Streets pop-up foodie festival.

Sweet tasting food vendors from all over the world would serve up a whole host of cuisines from Thai delicacies to cupcakes and cake-topped milkshakes. The Street food stalls will be serving up near Broughton between 11am and 6pm on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th June, and it promises to be a delicious experience, so aim to be there!

In my preparation for this pop-up foodie festival, I made this Spaghetti Bolognese with Greek Yoghurt dish. I decided to go for this dish as it is one of my regulars, the kiddies love it so much. It is one of their favourites, so I make it quite regularly.

This recipe was so yummy (if I may say so myself). It is my first time adding some Greek Yoghurt to Spaghetti Bolognese, and I love the creamy flavour it added to the dish. I can see myself making my Spaghetti Bolognese like this going forward.
I am really forward to seeing what the food vendors cook up at the Eats from the Streets Food Festival this weekend at Broughton Shopping Centre in Cheshire. I can’t wait to taste some more good food.
You can find out more about the event on Broughton Shopping Centre’s Facebook page and the Twitter account.
