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 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 […]

Aloe Fleur de Jouvence by Forever Living

June 28, 2016 admin 4

One of the great things about my forever living business is that I get to lend people the products so that they can try before they buy. This is a fantastic idea as why invest in new products if you are not 100% sure you are going to love them. I find that people love this concept and often ask if I have any new products for them to test out, this week one of my […]

Join the Nail Revolution

April 10, 2016 admin 1

I love having pretty nails. As a teenager I had a box full of all sorts of colours of nail varnish and spend hours painting my nails, then taking the varnish off and starting again, just to try a different colour. Since then, and despite 15 years in catering and hospitality, I still can’t resist a pretty bottle of nail varnish when I see it. I can spend half an hour getting the perfect French […]

Feel younger and celebrate Christmas with Time Bomb – Christmas Special.

December 22, 2015 admin 0

Christmas is here and if you are still running round trying to get all those last minute presents, I have a great stocking filler for that special lady in your life that she will just love!   I’ve been lucky to have reviewed Time Bomb products before and I couldn’t recommend them enough. As you know, when you hit the closer side to 30 (me being 25 now!) we do start to think about anti […]
