I have some very exciting news to share with you all today – I have been asked to take part in Holland and Barrett’s new campaign #HollandandBarrettBuddies Hurrah! The idea of the project is that 10 bloggers are paired up by their interests and blog content, and have £100 to spend on their new buddy from the extensive range of products at health food shop Holland and Barrett. Ooh it’s sounds fun doesn’t it!?
I’ve been paired up with the very lovely Dani from This Woman’s Word. I am so excited to have been introduced to Dani and her amazing blog and highly reccommend you check it out too! Dani has a love of all things health and fitness, and tries to use all natural beauty products. Her blog is seriously inspirational, and I have definitely been thinking more carefully about what I put in my body, and on my body, a lot more since discovering it! There’s also an incredible recipe for a sugar free cheesecake! Yep you read that right – amazing eh?!
As well as having a real good read of This Woman’s Word, Dani and I have also swapped lots of texts and emails so I can get a real understanding of what she would like to get out of the Buddy scheme, and help me pick products which will appeal to her, and her lifestyle aims.
Dani is very big on clean eating and stays away from refined sugars and GMO’s, so I’ve selected lots of healthy snacks like mixed nuts and seeds, as well as quinoa and bulgar wheat for her to experiment with. Dani had also said she’d like some natural home products like washing up liquid and toothpaste. As a lover of beauty bits and bobs myself, I also thought it would be fun to pick a few out for Dani to try (including a gorgeous looking lipstick), especially as she has blogged that she is looking to expand her collection of green cosmetics, free from parabens and un-natural ingredients.
I won’t divulge all of what I chose for Dani as I don’t want to ruin the surprise, but she’ll be writing about it all over at This Woman’s Word as soon as her parcel arrives! You can also read Dani’s post about what sort of things she has chosen for me here. Eeeee SO excited!!!
