Fruit For Life – Coconut Chips

img_6244

Sometimes I crave a snack with crunch and this filled that need perfectly.

I love how they are delicately roasted, they’re such a beautiful snack and very easy to eat. I finished the entire bag!

I purchased this bag at Coles and I believe they were about $2.15 in the baking aisle where the dried fruits and nuts are stored.

Product Review – Mountain Goats Milk Soap

logo_dark

My son Ishaq suffers from horrible eczema. He is allergic to dust and the slightest contact with it creates not only hives but eczema left over on his skin. He gets it all over his body from between the toes to his eye lids. I have tried so many different products to ease his dryness and itchiness and while I have had some good success with them they never quite healed it completely.

We hate using the cortisone creams that the dr recommends although sometimes sadly we do have to resort to it for the very worst of symptoms.

I’ve found great relief with Mountain Goats Milk Soap products recently for his dry skin and indeed the itchiness. I’ve been using the baby wash or the soap in his bath and then smothering him with their gorgeous creams.
Here’s a few we love…

Moisture Intense:

For those who need extreme moisturising this cream is readily absorbed into the skin and the moisture is so very well lasting you will be surprised. And the scent… DIVINE !

Luxurious Unscented Soap:
With no water used in this product and only the very best Goats milk and rich in skin loving oils and butters this soap will leave you wonderfully clean and fresh without stripping your already dry skin of it’s natural oils.

Baby Wash:
Rich in the essential oils of Lavender this delightful wash is not only a pleasure to use but it’s great for your baby’s skin. This beautiful wash really goes a long way so when it says you only need the smallest amount it truly means it. I love to use this for myself too… just don’t tell the kids.

Raspberry Cream:

Do you remember the smell of Redskins lollies as a kid? that overwhelmingly delicious scent of raspberries when you ate them? THIS cream is THAT smell !! This is a wonderfully buttery cream with no water added for maximum moisture absorption. Plus of course, it smells incredible.

Lip Balm… One for mama:

I love the rich chocolate scent and flavour of this gorgeous lip balm. I have it ready to go in my handbag for when I want a hit of deliciousness. You don’t even need to have rough lips to want to smooth this onto your lips. And because it is firm in the container, it doesn’t get wasted and definitely will not leak out of the container. Just delightful.

You will love these products even if you do not suffer from eczema. I have been telling everyone about these lovely products and i’m sure you will adore them also if you try them.

Before you leave… here’s some lovely Goats!

Review – Nescafe Special Edition

As is well known amongst my friends and family network, I LOVE coffee. I like it strong and in abundance. I’m not one to buy an espresso because a mouthful of coffee is just a tease and I prefer a great big mug/glass instead.

Today I was at BigW and found the new Nescafe Special Edition Salted Caramel Latte in store. Being the coffee lover I am, when I see a new coffee i’m on it at full speed!

But i’m disappointed. I normally do not buy sachet style coffees, Rather I brew my own in my old trusted Delonghi thankyou to my mate Melissa for the hand me down of the machine ❤ and add my own flavouring syrups to my liking. Or have it plain with milk.

Now don’t get me wrong here, the taste is nice. It’s subtle and pleasing but it’s the serving size that gets me down. I wish I had of read the side of the box before purchasing.

Now I don’t know about you, but 150mls of coffee does not make a coffee for me. It’s almost a taste test size you would get at a stall in the supermarket to show a new brand. I ended up using two of the sachets and that’s only just over a cup of coffee 300mls and still quite a small coffee by most people’s standards *at least by the people I know and have asked*

Nescafe, Whilst the flavour was nice, I wonder if you could cater to the coffee addicted amongst us and create LARGER sized servings? Ideally I like a coffee to be about 400ml not 150ml. So how about it? you’ll have many happy consumers I am sure if you did this for us.

Overall if I am rating this product according to taste and ignoring the size I would give it 4 out of 5. It’s nice, give it a go and tell me what you think 🙂
