Ok, so I better confess it isn’t entirely free it is 2 for 1 but hey that is still one person free. I can not take the credit for discovering this deal however I have just found out about it and successfully done it myself so I just had to share with you guys. My blog is all about living a happy and healthy life for the average person with an average budget etc. It is perfectly timed for the summer holidays too.

I shared with you earlier in the year (post here) that we were going on holiday to Majorca again and looking forward to snorkelling with the kits we were sent from Simply Scuba. We had tried the kits on at home and packed them away but never tried them in water so it was to be an experience. Ben was very excited as was Stuart. My friend Julie also had a kit to try but I didn’t as I cant swim.

Now it is the school summer holidays parents up and down the country are looking for days out for the family without spending a fortune. There are so many great places to go in the UK I thought I would share my favourites with you.

I often get messages from people following my blog who ask for easy things to cook. Many people simply do not have the time for hours in the kitchen preparing a meal, others do not feel confident they are competent in the kitchen. Hello Fresh have recently done some research about adults in the UK and their cooking skills and I found the results quite surprising so thought I would share them with you.

How often do you shave your legs? Probably around 3 times a week as a minimum I would guess depending on the weather and clothes you wear? How often do you change your razor blade? When it gets blunt? When they are on offer at the supermarket? Or when you remember to buy more? Such a pain isn’t it. Not to mention how women’s razors always seem to be that bit more expensive than men’s and pink! What if we don’t want pink or want a ladies one that is cheaper? Trying a new one can mean cutting your legs to shreds with a cheap one or sticking to what you know and paying a fortune. Frustrating isn’t it? When I was asked to review the Friction Free Shaving I was curious as to whether it would be very good. I was brave though and took it on holiday to try it there where obviously my legs needed shaving at least once a day!

Over the last year or so I have noticed an increase in the number of stories published in papers and general concerns about blue light exposure. I wasn’t really aware of what exactly this is and what the concerns are so I considered buying a Blue Light Filter for the Laptop. I spend a lot of the time as you are probably aware working at the computer for my blog and this was a concern of mine. I have looked into it a little further and thought I would share some information with you in case like me you are a little unsure.

Here I have a guest post for you from another blogger. Lucie has lost weight since being told she was at risk from Type 2 diabetes and shares her story about the changes she is making and how she discovered she had these health concerns. Do check out Lucie’s blog and social media at the end of the post too.

Due to Ben’s additional needs and the physical problems he has also had I have some experience of choosing a Motability vehicle I wanted to share with you all. If a Motability vehicle is something you are considering you will already know how much one will likely cost you a week. I am sure you will already know if you need to be looking at wheelchair accessible vehicles or just a vehicle that maybe has space for a folded wheelchair. Here I will share my tips for the latter as that is the experience I have. Also because some of the considerations I have previously made you may not have considered.

It is holiday season and across the country people are planning this year’s or even next year’s holiday. Of course what you pack for a holiday is important but it isn’t all about what is in your suitcase. The paperwork you carry is also hugely important and of course that is more than just the passport. Whether you get travel insurance or just have a free EHIC card is a decision only you can make. Here I thought I would share with you the difference so you can make an informed decision.

When I was offered this smoothie blender to review I knew Ben would be impressed. He was keen to get me blending him up a milkshake and have a go at creating something himself. The Hamswan Personal Blender is available directly from Amazon which makes things easy as everyone has used Amazon before haven’t they!
