The Body Shop Vitamin E Serum Review

Rave: The Body Shop Vitamin E Serum

I’m a new fan of The Body Shop’s Vitamin E range. I already religiously use their Vitamin E toner because I find it so refreshing (and the fact that it’s alcohol-free doesn’t hurt either, literally), but in the past I’d always forked out for Olay serums. Once I realised that the Olay one I was…

Sir Hummus Amsterdam | Hungry and Confused

Sir Hummus, Amsterdam

Sir Hummus started life as a delivery service for the hummus-loving people of Amsterdam – a way of getting fresh hummus delivered straight to your door.

Day 4 of the #ChristmasMarketCrawl in Celle

#ChristmasMarketCrawl Day 4: Celle

If I’d thought that Hannover, Goslar and Wolfenbuttel were pretty, Celle was the icing on the cake. The last stop on our whirlwind trip of four of the nine cities of Lower Saxony, we were starting to get a little tired and bloated from all of the Christmas cheer (read: mulled wine). But seeing how…
