Sunday Spotlight - 27th October 2013

This week, I’ve been loving…

Going to the hairdressers

I’m not very good at relaxing. I can sit at home and watch TV, or read a book, but I don’t relax. The only times I seem to really unwind are when I go to the hairdressers or for a massage (not that I get to do this much – I definitely think that pampering should be available on prescription!) So this Monday I visited my local salon, Perfection, for a treatment, cut and blow-dry.

They recently had a complete re-fit and the salon looks great – simple, stylish and classy. The staff are lovely and will always listen to what look I’m trying to achieve. Having my hair washed is definitely my favourite part, then after that I tend to bury my head in a complementary magazine while the stylist works their magic!

This visit was especially great as I left with a goody bag full of freebies – always a winner! I think I might be spending more of my time down there as they are now branching out into nails and waxing treatments too!

Soreen Limited Edition Chocolate Malt Loaf

I’d heard others raving about Soreen loaves but I’ve never got round to trying one. Then I spotted this little lovely on an Instagram post and knew I had to try it. So, I hunted high and low and finally found a Sainsbury’s with some in stock, so I snapped one up. I’ve never eaten malt loaf before, so wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but I was very pleasantly surprised. You only need a small slice to fill you up (although it is rather moreish!) and what’s even better is it’s low calorie, so a nice guilt-free treat. If only it wasn’t limited edition…

Hot water bottles

I’m really struggling with pain at the moment and while my GP investigates something else, I can’t take any medication to try and alleviate it. So, I’ve been looking into other pain killing solutions and have found that heat slightly helps.

I’ve got a lovely red, spotty, fluffy hot water bottle, which I snuggle down in bed with every evening. The only downside is that it’s only little so obviously can only be used at one pain site. Now if someone could invent a whole heated onesie – I’d go for that!

I’ve also got my eye on an Aroma Cat Hottie from M&S, as I find hotties tend to keep their heat longer and also smell lovely. Plus who could resist this cute design?!

What has grabbed your attention this week? I love hearing about people’s new discoveries and you may end up sharing something that makes it onto my list next week!


  1. Lovely post! I hope your pain stops soon - the hot water bottle looks so cute!


    1. Thank you Hun. I think the hottie might be going on my Christmas wishlist! XxX
