Sorry about the pun, but as it’s been a big Royal week, I couldn’t resist.
Anyway, I’m not here to talk about Royal babies but about beards. This one goes to all those who can grow a nice beard (or those who love these bearded chaps) and want it to keep looking and feeling nice too.
It was my husband’s birthday few weeks ago and I wanted to get him a beard oil. I’ve seen plenty of lovely American beard oils but with the postage across the Atlantic they’d end up costing an arm and a leg. So, after a bit of googlage, I came across this lovely company called Original Norfolk Beard Oil. It’s run by two friendly chaps (the service really is lovely!) who understand the difficulty of buying beard oil online. This is why they sell a small sample bottle (see the way they wrap and wax seal it above) of your chosen variety for £5, and if you like it and order a bigger bottle, they take that fiver of your order.
I went for the smokey Warrior scent as my hubs is a sucker for anything smokey. He was sceptical to start off with but is now completely hooked. The oil has made his beard much softer and makes it stay in shape (I think that makes sense if you have a beard). Converted to Beard Oil.
So if you or a bearded man in your life is in need of some beard nectar I’d highly recommend this Norfolk variety + you’re supporting a small independent business in the process.
I got my husband this arm candy (or should I say wrist candy) for his birthday few weeks ago. It’s a fully functional wooden watch by a company called WeWood. When we were getting married he toyed with an idea of having a wooden wedding ring (but it just wasn’t very practical) so when I saw this watch I thought he could still have his wooden accessory but in form of a watch. Win win.
+ Each timepiece they sell plants a tree. Can’t go wrong.
If your wrist party needs to up its antics go check them out!

Toast! This found comes with a serious swooning warning. Everything is beautiful and all of a sudden you can visualise your home and wardrobe full of ‘can’t live without’ Toast items (and in the process your home has seamlessly transformed into a mountain hideaway or a beach house to accommodate all these). Just be careful, your bank account might/will not love this new found crush. That’s why these Toast goodies are usually found on my birthday/christmas wish lists.

To make things even more appealing wherever possible they support organic production and discourage throw-away fashion. Love that.
If you’re just up for a good day dream get a catalogue! These are a reason why our house guests often spend a few minutes longer in the bathroom than perhaps necessary (you see, our powder room has been a home for a good collection of toast catalogues for a while now) And in good recycling form use as wrapping paper when the piles are getting too high (pun not intended!:)
