♥These are a few of my favourite things ♥

I wanted to start a little blog series where I share my favourite things with you every so often. This will be everything from migraine/health related products, to what shows I have been loving, food faves and any other random bits and bobs I have been obsessed with.

Since we are only allowed out for one walk a day at the moment, I thought it would be a great time to try and get back into using the bike at home. The recumbent bike was suggested to me by my cardiologist to help with POTs, by building up my leg muscles. I like to sit back in a comfy chair and watch Netflix whilst I pedal.

I find that because my body is not fighting gravity and its fairly low impact, that it doesn’t seem to trigger my head off in the same way most exercise does. I have the Mira Fit bike but there are lots of different models you can choose from online. Try and get one which is fairly heavy so it doesn’t move around too much when you pedal. The Mira Fit one has a little display panel showing you your speed, distance, time, calories burned etc.

Native deodrant (aluminium free)
I’ve been looking for a new deodorant for a while as I wanted to switch to one which was aluminium free. I’ve tried a few different ones in the past but never found them very good and always ended up going back to my trusty dove roll on.

I saw a few “influencers” (bleugh I still hate that word) talking about Native online and ordered some to try. They aren’t cheap and unfortunately I had to pay extra customs charges but the deodorant is incredible. It’s a creamy stick and feels lovely to apply. It’s aluminium and paraben free and you can choose from so many different scents. I’m currently loving the coconut and vanilla scent. At the end of the day I still smell of coconut! If you want to try it for yourself, you can get a free mini deodorant with your first order using this link

I’m wayyyy late to the party on this one but it’s amazing when you find a great podcast and have about a year’s worth of episodes to binge on. It’s by Chris and Rosie Ramsey and is a hilarious chat between husband and wife about day to day life, relationships and their grievances. To anyone who already listens and has a clue what I’m on about... everytime I hear the babagabagababaga I always go babagabagababaGANOUSH. You’re welcome.

I’m not sure if I’m sad or relieved that I didn’t discover this pot of joy sooner. I’ve loved the lotus biscoff biscuits for years but for some reason never tried the spread. Wow. It’s delicious! I haven’t found anything I particularly love to eat it with yet (suggestions welcome). I like it best straight off the spoon! Big thanks to my friend Sarah for showing me how it’s done.

This stuff smells incredible! I don’t think I’ve ever rationed myself with a shower gel before but I’ve been trying so hard not to use this all up but finally it’s gone. It lathers up well like most shower gels to be honest but the scent is SO fresh. I can’t wait to try the shampoo and conditioner next! It contains no SLS or parabens and is vegan and cruelty free.

What are you loving at the moment?
