The Sugar Loaf Soap

February 17, 2020 admin 8

One of the best things about being a blogger is the opportunities it brings for me and my family. The majority of the time we are invited to family friendly attractions but a few times a year I am sent some goodies just for me and it always makes me smile, especially when those goodies are as beautiful as these ones from The Sugar Loaf Soap Company.   The Sugar Loaf Soap Company is a Welsh […]

How to look good this winter

November 15, 2018 admin 0

Now the winter months are setting in our natural summer glow is likely to disappear along with the light evenings and sunny mornings and it is easy to start neglecting ourselves and staying hidden under bulky jumpers, gloves and hats. But we all know we will regret it as soon as December starts and we are being invited to Christmas parties and realise we really should have tried harder. Well worry not there is still […]

Nourisil MD a product review

October 31, 2018 admin 0

Last week I was asked if I would be happy to try out a new product, Nourisil MD, to see if I thought it worked well as a primer as despite not being created for that purpose the feedback the company where having was that it most definitely seemed to work well as a dual function product and they wanted to know what I thought. I was intrigued to find out more so of course […]

marili

Marili skincare range – inspired by Africa, made in England

August 11, 2018 admin 0

One of the biggest perks of being a blogger is the opportunity to try new products and visit new places that we might not otherwise experience. These opportunities have opened my eyes to so many new companies and more importantly they have educated me on the way products are made and the ingredients that are used and it has definitely made me think about the products we then go on to buy as a family. […]

MUA masterclass

Celebrity MUA masterclass in Manchester

July 11, 2018 admin 0

When I first started writing my blog it was my little piece of pink in a world full of a blue, in other words it was my release to be girly, write about make up and clothing and escape the constant refereeing and child wrangling that had become my life after having two boys. However this quickly became more about them than it did about anything girly and instead I now find myself reviewing family […]

The new Organic Shop range at Tesco

April 15, 2018 admin 0

When I first set up The Strawberry Fountain it was to write about all things girly and do beauty related reviews but as with everything in my life the boys infiltrated it, so most of the time I write about our lives together, our days out of products, books and toys that they are enjoying or we think you should avoid. So when I do get the chance to do a more girly review and […]

olverum oil

Olverum bath oil product review

April 12, 2018 admin 0

My bath is basically my sanctuary, the only place in the whole house were I get peace and quiet and to be fair that’s not always guaranteed. Most days I run a bath after the boys have gone to bed so that I don’t have to worry about them trying to sneak in with me or me having to answer to “muummmmy” for the 9ooth time. Instead I shut the door, grab my book and […]

Introducing Calla-Coll the collagen supplement drink

February 2, 2018 admin 2

Since I reached my thirties I have started to notice lines are appearing on my face more frequently and are getting deeper, the fat around my middle is harder to shift and I generally just look and feel older. I have always taken my body and my skin for granted and although I have always used various lotions and potions I have never really read the contents too much or focused on changing certain areas, […]

Discovering Bioderma – a review

September 21, 2017 admin 0

A few weeks back I received some lovely products from a company I hadn’t heard of before, Bioderma. I was asked if I would give them a try and like most women who are offered free beauty products I readily agreed but before I even started using them I did a little research and here is what I found…   Bioderma are a skin care company that have been around since the 70’s and they […]
