Isn’t it a nice feeling when kids are in bed and you manage to get some peace to go and have a nice relaxing lovely bath full of bubbles and soothing aromas. I love trying out and using different bath products and experiencing different smells and and scents.
Faith in Nature was founded over 30 years ago by Rivka Rose and they produce a vast range of lovely products for bath, skin and hair. The products are made from naturally derived sources and free from things such as synthetic additives. They have a lot of products to choose from and kindly agreed to send me something to try. The products come in so many varieties, with many different blends and scents such as coconut , raspberry & cranberry, aloe Vera and many more but there was one distinct one that really stood out for me and I knew I just had to give it a go. Chocolate

The thought of using chocolate products in a bath doesn’t really sound right and I was very intrigued as to what these products would be like.
The first thing to use was the Chocolate bath & shower gel

This chocolate delight contains beneficial aromatherapy oils to help nourish skin.
The smell of this bath & shower gel reminds me of cocoa powder or thd smell of drinking chocolate. It’s very nice and very warming and relaxing. The liquid comes out a light brown colour like liquid chocolate but dissolves in water and produces lots of lovely bubbles.

The product is both a bubble bath and bath/shower wash. I love relaxing in my bath of bubbles surrounded by warm chocolate aromas.
Once washed I was then ready to give my locks some chocolate therapy too.

First on was the Chocolate Shampoo. It contains a luxury blend of Organic chocolate and sage and again lovely chocolate aromas flow around the bathroom helping me to relax. It lathers in my hair very well and helps give extra shine to my hair.
Then the Chocolate conditioner which contains organic chocolate with vanilla and infusions of sage. This smelt very creamy and chocolaty and was very smooth on my hair.

Even when I washed the products out of my hair and came out of the bath I could still smell the Cocoa aromas. I’m not saying I smelt like a chocolate bar but more a very warm luxury smell. My skin smelt lovely and washed and my hair was left soft. Just what a tired mummy needs at the end of a busy day.
The shampoos and conditioners come in many other varieties just incase chocolate aroma aren’t your thing and cost £5.35 per 400ml bottle. Larger bottles are also available and the bath & shower gel is £5.45 per bottle.

Celebrate Chinese New Year with Tesco

Published January 31, 2014 by Bizzimummy

Today is Chinese New Year and 2014 is year of the horse. To help us celebrate and cook up something a little oriental we chose a Wok from the selection at Tesco Direct. There are a fair few to choose from starting as low as just £4 upwards. You can even have it delivered to your home for a few pound too as you never know which store will have what in so I find this much easier.
I chose this Carbon Steel Wok at a very reasonable price of just £7.33

The wok has a 30cm diameter and made from strong aluminium. It boasts a classic non stick Teflon coating which is usually found on more higher priced pans.
I decided to make a chicken schzeaun which is a little like a Chinese chilli. I’m not a great cook and no idea how to cook Chinese from scratch so I bought some chicken and a jar of sauce (also from Tesco) plus some noodles and prawn crackers.

I found the wok had a fair bit of weight to it meaning it can hold a lot of food and stay sturdy. The pan heated up very quickly and the food cooked fast and was very hot when served.

The handle stayed cool throughout the cooking and when finished the wok was easy to clean using just soap and water.

My food tasted great and I think every kitchen should have a wok in there cupboards. Especially considering this one costs under £10. An absolute bargain I think.
Details of this Wok can be found at Tesco.
Wishing everyone a happy Chinese New Year.
