A Few March Favourites

I’ve written about a few things I’ve enjoyed in March. This is a round up of the rest.


Aveda be Curly

This set was a Christmas gift from my niece as she remembered that I wanted to try it.  I have very curly, unruly hair with a tendency to frizz, so I approached a lady in the gym who has fabulous curly hair and asked her what she uses.  Aveda is the answer it seems! The first thing to mention is that the shampoo does not lather – this is a good thing as it indicates a lack of nasties that strip the hair of oil.  Once you get used to the feeling that you are not scrubbing your hair clean, then it’s fine.  The conditioner is nice and thick and you only need to use a small amount (good job as it’s expensive).  The curl enhancer is a real miracle worker for me as I dry my hair naturally most of the time and this keeps it relatively under control as it dries.  I use it when my hair is still wet, but also as a top up to control frizz in the day.


Rituals Yogi Flow Body Wash & Body Oil

This was a treat to myself and smells fabulous!  I don’t know what it is about Rituals but everything  I try is just delicious so I’m working my way through the range.

Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser

Once I started with this method of cleansing, there was no going back, although I have bought in extra supplies of lovely white face flannels as the bottle only comes with two. There is a new rose scented one out which I plan to buy next.

The Butcher’s Hook by Janet Ellis

I’ll probably finish this page turner in bed tonight.  I love the characters as they are definitely more naughty than nice.


Haus Frau by Jill Alexander Essbaum

I read this on holiday and devoured it.  Reminds me a bit of The Reader.  Understated, but you can really feel Anna’s pain at being trapped in her unhappy life.

Looking forward to April as there are lots of adventures lined up!
