I don’t usually blog about men’s products, but my other half finds this one so good that I gave it a try myself. Shaving Oil, I hear you say? Yes Shaving Oil. A little product found in the millions of bathrooms worldwide.
The thing I like about this one in particular is that it is 100% natural Shaving Oil it comes in a small bottle but it goes a very long way indeed.
The benefits are not just for your pocket and being a frugal kinda gal I love when I come across a product such as this. It’s so handy and fits nicely into your hand luggage for travelling. The smell and feel on your skin after a shave is amazing. Now I am usually a waxer myslef, but in these hard economic times I have taken to shaving and am amazed at the results from this little bottle! There is no mess, no foam or gel all over the bathroom… just a lovely smelling oil that leaves the skin silky soft!
If you are like my and have sensitive skin this is the answer, I am just surprised more people have not heard of it which is why I write about it today.
Do yourself a favor pick up a bottle from the online shop, even P&P are free so it’s a winner all round.
Enjoy and please let us know how you got on with it!

There are many ways to tone your body, lose weight and get in shape! Some of us have a life-time battle with weight loss and exercise, including me! I am the biggest yo-yo dieter and exerciser ever! I heard my Mum talking about Callenetics the other week and she was raving about the class she goes to every Monday, say that it was a great low impact way of toning all the favorite areas like bums and tums!
What is Callenetics?
I live in a rural location so the nearest class to me would be about an hour away and to be honest I just could not be bothered! So I went online and did a bit of research!
This is a really unique form of exercising that was really big back in the 80′s and 90′s, with the revolution of Yoga and Pilates it was not so popular, but it has come back into the light with the help of celebrities such as Madonna! The exercise is based on doing small localised movements and concentrating on certain parts of the body at any one time thus allowing those muscles the opportunity to tone to the highest level. The nice thing about this type of exercise is it is low impact and you don’t get puffed. You will feel really relaxed and pleasantly tired after the work-out.
This method involves intense deep muscle work, you won’t experience the jumping and bouncing that you would in other high-impact exercises like aerobics or jogging.
What is the effect?
So to test it out I bought a DVD so I could do it from home in the evenings. You can build yourself up to complete the required number of repititions in any set, it can take a bit of time at the start. One hour of these exercises can have a huge effect and can be the equivelent to a few hours at an aerobics class!
People who practice this form of exercise do so safely and virtually injury free! You will feel effects the first time you do the exercises and you will see an effect after the first two sessions! You can’t get better than that! All that’s needed is dedication and commitment!
Can I do these exercises?
Anybody who is anybody can do theses exercises. Its perfect for people who even feel they are uncoordinated and helps them to gain some level of control over their bodies! The Callenetics founder is Callan Pinckney, and she is quoted to have said that “Every person who has done the Exercise method, regardless of their age or body condition, and who has the determination to have a strong fit and beautiful body, now has it!”
I think the nice thing about this form of exercise is it’s accessibility and availability to all ages, sizes, and people!
Give it a try and let us know how you got on! We will be recording our own progress and will report back to you next week!
Things to Consider when you are buying a digital Camera:
Buying a Digital Camera is an investment and it is important to do some research before you make that purchase! I love writing reviews about products that I have bought and I wanted to concentrate on some of the electronic products that I have bought in the past year. One of those was the Canon Powershot SX210 IS Digital camera.
One of the most important things to consider when you are looking to buy a digital camera is the digital cameras ability to zoom on your subject, thus enabling you to get the best from your picture or recording. The Canon Powershot SX210 IS was released in February 2010 and has done really well, specifically because it is really sleek and handy to bring around. One of the key technical points to consider about this camera is the ability to zoom while you are recording, this means that as you are recording and zooming you will maintain a high quality of sound and image. If you want to have flawless recording quality of those special moments the 14x 28mm wide-angle genuine Canon Lens provides real benefit and is a serious consideration when making the purchase. This Canon Digital Camera also has image stabilisation.
What about megapixel?
When you are buying a Digital Camera an important topic that arises is megapixel? How many etc The Canon Powershot SX210 IS Digital Camera has a 14.1 Megapixel with compact and what this means is that the camera is great for capturing detail from landscapes and distant subjects. The stabilizer in this Digital Camera allows for blur free images no matter what the focal lengths are!
So why buy the Canon Powershot SX210 IS Digital Camera? Well apart from my personal experience and all of the great reviews received this camera allows the photographer to get really close to the action. The user can opt to use the Auto option or the manual option if you are feeling more confident and creative! Another great feature is you can easily upload your pictures and photos with the free web up-loader software.
What if the light is not right?
Don’t worry the Powershot SX210 IS Digital Camera has a low light mode making it great in situations that you don’t want a flash or low lit rooms. This Digital Camera has an intelligent contrast correction that automatically adjusts for best picture quality.
I have to say of all the cameras I have had over the years I found this to be the best! I am not a big photographer but there are important times when I have used the camera like at school plays, weddings and other family events.
It is good to know that this product has had great customer reviews over the past year and has a high score of 4.5 in Amazon!

A friend of mine gave me a book a few months back to read, she said it was a great book, like me she is an avid reader! Once I picked up this book by Torey Hayden called “One Child” I was stuck on it straight away! As a mother of two anything to do with children be it good or bad grabs my attention as this is where I am in my life at the moment!
If you are looking for a quick but gripping read I would highly recommend this book!
Basically without giving too much away the book is about Ms Hayden’s experience as a special needs teacher in the US, this book deals specifically with her relationship with her student Sheila, who is from a poor part of town, who has not had much luck or love has suffered major child abuse on so many levels, as a result her behavior has got her into trouble, to the point that she harms another child and is looking at spending time in an institution. Without giving too much away Sheila ends up in the care of Torey Hayden, (Educational Psychologist), who spends time getting to know this disturbed and fragile child.
If you like true life stories written by the people who were there and have a real life experience then I dare you not to like this read. Generally it is not too gruesome but there are references to awful abuse suffered by Sheila, however it makes for real life reading and I enjoyed every minute, so much that I am onto the second book, the follow up from one Child, called Tiger’s Child.
This is a book by a great Author who is able to translate her feelings and experiences to the reader in a human fashion.
The New Year is here! Most of us are now focused on losing the extra weight from Christmas and that unwanted body insulation! Summer is coming and its time to start moving.
A great way to get yourself in shape is by using fitness DVDs! They do work you just have to press play!! Fitness DVDs are as popular as ever and most if not all of us have bought one in the past! There are so many to chose from so we have out together a small collection that we think will help! We are even going to try them out and keep you updated.
