[18th June 2015] My Inner Girl’s Picks – Foxes

My Inner Girl's Picks.../ Shopping

Ever since I bought Bugs some pyjamas with foxes on last year I have just loved anything foxy so that’s what I decided today’s theme for my picks would be! As usual I have picked them all from Etsy as I really love to support small businesses 🙂

My inner girl’s picks started on my other blog Finding my Inner Girl, I no longer have that blog and when I closed it I continued my picks here as it’s a post each week just for me, forgetting the kids and thinking about the things that I would love 🙂

I love getting inspiration for my picks from my readers so if you would like to pick next week’s theme for me just leave a comment below of what you would like to see me cover next week 🙂

Chemist Direct Review

Review/ Shopping

I love stocking up on health care goodies, I have a big cupboard full of medication, first aid products, sun care products etc so when I was contacted by Chemist Direct to ask me if I’d like to review their website I couldn’t really say no 😉

ChemistDirect.co.uk is the UK’s number 1 online retailer* of pharmacy medications, specialist skincare products, everyday essential toiletries, vitamins, supplements and we even stock a dedicated range of products to keep your pets happy and healthy. By shopping with us you can browse a larger range than your average High Street pharmacy whilst still being able to fulfil prescriptions via our team of GPhC registered pharmacists and all from the convenience of your own home. Shop top brands such as Regaine, Nannycare, Panoxyl, Nicorette, Almased.

*UK’s #1 pharmacy based on Sempora ‘UK Retail Pharmacy 2014’ consumer study & Hitwise May 2015.

I decided to spend my voucher on lots of bits and pieces that I was running low on and was really happy to find all my favourite brands at really competitive prices. Chemist Direct has so many products to choose from including medicines, vitamins and supplements, pet health products, baby care and so much more!

Some of the products I bought (like the Calpol) I had to answer a few questions about who would be using them and why just like I would in a pharmacy. The whole process was very easy and I was checked out in no time. The website is incredibly easy to get around and I had no bother finding the products that I wanted. I was also very happy to find Chemist Direct offer free standard UK delivery when you spend over £40. My parcel was delivered by Hermes and was with me in under 48 hours (Very impressive.)! I was very happy with the whole shopping experience from Chemist Direct and will happily shop there in future.

Chemist Direct also offer an Online Doctor service and you can even get yours or your pet prescriptions filled without leaving the house. Head over and take a look for yourselves 🙂

Chemist Direct are also on Twitter so why not head over and give them a follow 🙂

* I received a voucher for Chemist Direct for the purpose of writing this review.

[10th June 2015] My Inner Girl’s Picks – Clouds

My Inner Girl's Picks.../ Shopping

It’s been a long time since I did this feature, I think I only did it once after I moved Finding my Inner Girl over here. That didn’t work out too well did it! I used to really love doing my picks each week so I am going to start this up again. I will also start the guest picks up again too so if you’d like to join in see the bottom of the post.

To start off my theme for this week is Clouds… Clouds just seem to make me happy at the moment!  I pick them all from Etsy as I really love to support small business 🙂

I adore these things… especially the washi tape, I’m off to order some of that now! What I really love about doing this feature is that it gives me lots of ideas for when people ask me what I want for my birthday or Christmas. I just have to look back through my picks and instantly see something I would love.

Oooh I’m feeling all happy and warm now I’ve done this post… It’s almost as good as coming home from a day out shopping with lots of bags to go through 😉

Mountain Warehouse Jacket Review

Review/ Shopping

The lovely people at Mountain Warehouse contacted me a few weeks ago to see if I would like to review one of their winter coats. I was desperately in need of a new coat so jumped at the chance. I chose the Antarctic Extreme Womens Down Jacket which is currently available for £124.99 instead of £249.99. It is available in black sizes 10-18.

If there is one thing that I hate it is being cold when I am outdoors, i have to get up and do the school run everyday and it has been so cold recently so the coat already has been used an awful lot!I am totally in love with this jacket! I have never been cold in it, it is so snug, just like wearing a duvet! My other half is so jealous of my gorgeous new coat I think I am going to have to buy him one too. LOL

The Antarctic Extreme Womens Down Jacket is a high performance, warm winter jacket. Fully waterproof, breathable and with taped seams, this jacket will ensure you stay dry and comfortable in a downpour. The fur trim hood and casual longline design make this a practical yet stylish piece for winter too. With a 75% down 25% feather filling as well as a full down proof lining, you’re sure to stay snug in the Antarctic Extreme Womens Down Jacket

  • Waterproof – Our IsoDry fabric has a waterproof and breathable membrane to allow perspiration out, but keep you dry
  • Taped Seams – Taped seams make this garment fully waterproof
  • Down – 75% duck down and 25% feather make this Jacket extremely warm
  • Downproof Lining – Stops feathers and the filling of the jacket from poking through
  • Hood – Adjustable for a close fit, detachable for dry days, and a faux fur trim for extra warmth
  • Adjustable Waist – Elastic cord with plastic toggles lets you draw the waist in for a better fit
  • Inner Rib Cuffs – Adjustable cuff with a Velcro strap and an inner ribbed cuff for warmth and comfort- also helps prevent water from getting in at the cuffs
  • Lots of Pockets – One internal MP3 player/mobile phone pocket, four front zipped security pockets, and two large front popper pockets
  • Heat Rating – Laboratory tested to -30C. Health & physical activity, exposure time & perspiration will affect performance & comfort

I would highly recommend this jacket if you are looking for a new one! It is incredible warm but I’ve never been too hot in it, waterproof, has a well fitted hood, it also has side pockets if you are a hands in pockets type of girl like I am!  I love the length of the jacket too, it comes to the tops of my legs so covers my bum – which is a must for any jacket! It is incredibly well made, thick and padded and I actually look forward to going out in the cold now as I know that I am going to be lovely and snug.

This jacket is perfect for the school run but it’s also perfect for long winter weekend walks, sledging and anything you need to be outdoors for this winter!
