Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is just around the corner the shops are full of suggestions for gift ideas to let dad know how amazing he is. If you’re looking for something a little different I’ve rounded up three things that have caught my eye on the web in the last few weeks that make great alternative gifts.

First up are these stunning men’s watches from the Camden Watch Co.  Perfect for the urban father who likes to look sharp, the Camden Watch Co draws its inspiration from 1900’s industrial London, focusing on key elements of the working man’s daily life, with subtle nods to locomotive style and Victorian train clocks.

A little help in the garden with Qwerkity

The weather has been absolutely beautiful this last week, albeit most of us have been stuck in the office so only managed to enjoy it over our lunch hours, but coming home after work and being able to sit outside in my garden and plant up some summer bulbs has been a lovely end to the day.

I am not a ‘green fingered’ person and gardening isn’t something I love to do but since moving into my house two years ago I have slowly begun to transform a wild overgrown and unloved garden into a place that is enjoyable to sit.  I’ve planted a lot of wildflowers and this year they’ve really blossomed and in particular my purple irises have doubled this year and they are such a beautiful bright colour in amongst a sea of greenery.

BOSS Watches – The New Pilot Collection

I love a good watch and invested in a beautiful one for myself some years ago when I was staying at the stunning St Regis hotel in Abu Dhabi (if you ever are lucky enough to stay in this luxury hotel I highly recommend the amazing spa).  A luxury watch is an investment and not only looks good, but will also be a lovely piece to pass on someday.  The new Pilot collection from BOSS watches has some beautifully designed watches, which, if you are looking for a gift for someone special will tick all the boxes.

Overcoming Anxiety

Firstly I apologise for the tardiness of late in posting anything at all on the blog.  Without wanting to sound like a bore real life has been throwing an absolute shed load of aggro at me lately and in true ‘me’ style I’ve buried my head in the sand, retreated into my little hole and pretended that the world is absolutely fine, and my anxiety has been in full swing.

That’s the thing when you suffer with anxiety you can have days where you are literally floating along like the heroine in a Disney movie and then all of a sudden everything, even the smallest of things, becomes incredibly overwhelming and crippling.

Tangle Teezer Round Blow Dry Hairbrush Review

Finding a good hair brush that doesn’t pull or drag through your hair whilst drying, or indeed weighs so much your arm feels like lead after can be a problem.  Thankfully though, the range of Tangle Teezer brushes are both lightweight and excellent at their intended purpose.

I first came across the Tangle Teezer brand about six years ago when my daughter’s hair was getting longer.  She has so much hair for a child and although there is a lot of it, it is incredibly fine and fly away.  She would constantly turn hair brushing into a drama and her Tangle Teezer brush was the only brush she would tolerate.
