mypure Review: Alva Naturkosmetik Foot Deodorant Spray

I'd found that after swimming I was becoming very paranoid about my feet and catching any fungal infections. So this review came at just the right time. Alva Naturkosmetik Foot Deodorant Spray is perfect for use after swimming or any sport and also combats long term foot odour if used consistently.

Sarah Loves... Sleep

Image from HERE (how cool would it be to wake up to that view!)

Sleep. I love sleep. I love my bed.

Everyone is different with how much sleep you need. For me I wake up each morning at 6am without fail. Normally I get up meditate and then get dressed and have breakfast. Recently it's not been the same.

Music Monday: Gomez - Little Pieces

I've been a big fan of Gomez from the early days and I've liked the way that there is no main vocalist and most songs rarely feature just one voice. Also the wide range of music is so varied from blues and folk to indie alternative to rock. Picking just one song was difficult but this is one of my faves.

Password Fail

At work the other day I had left myself signed in on my computer and then gone to a different part of the building and needed to sign in on another computer... this in itself was a pretty stupid thing to do but I couldn't be bothered to go back up the zillion steps back to my desk when I was actually heading out to lunch. So a colleague said I could sign in using their log in.

Listography - Inventions

Kate Takes 5 is at is again with her lists and this one I just had to join in with. 5 inventions that I wish were real... hmm this won't be a difficult task at all I can tell :-)

You might notice that this blog has changed. No? Oh well have a look. If you're reading this on your mobile you'll need to scroll down and click on the web version. So what do you think?

Music Monday: Kings of Leon - Back Down South

It's Kings of Leon week... well it is for me as I get to see them at Hyde Park this very Wednesday. Ooh I'm excited. I've lost count how many times I've seen them live now but I think it could be heading for about 15 times!!! Good times :-)

Look a tomato! I've waited a long time to see a tomato starting out in my hanging basket! Woot!

Had a fab week; met up with people from twitter (had the best time), handed in a big project for work (and relax), veggies are growing in the garden (yes this excites me).

I'm a gawker!

Recently I've needed a bit on inspiration for dinner and somehow I came across and to warn you it will make you feel hungry! It's a photo blog featuring bloggers all around the world and it's very addictive!

Wednesday 15 June 2011


I wrote a couple of months ago about capturing memories and some internet sources that can help. I've since then come across Patchlife. All of your popular social networking is put together into a daily log for you to look back on. It's a bit like Big Brother in a way.

The apple that means so much

It's just an apple. But it was the best apple. EVER! Well until the next time maybe but it was the best apple I've had in a long time.

Music Monday: Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Zero

I've been a huge fan of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs for a long time and with that also I absolutely love Karen O. Her seemingly effortless style has always made me envious. Some people are just so darn cool aren't they? She's one of them. This track 'Zero' is one of my favourites for getting ready for nights out as it makes you jump around, it's maybe not great for when applying mascara for that though! ;-)

Birthday cake - not mine. But I love to celebrate!

This week has been fab. Totally and utterly fab. Plus it's not even over yet! Exciting stuff. How have you all been? Has anyone had any sunshine? I miss Mr Sunshine. Please come back soon.

I've blogged before about my bubbly personality but this week I've realised how insecure I can get. This training course has tested me, not only for being away from home but I hate team building exercises. Well no that's wrong... I hate the thought of doing those exercises, once I'm there and doing it I am perfectly fine.

Inspecting a Beehive

I'd taken a break from my bee posts but now they are back! I've now completed a few beehive inspections on my own and now it feels like second nature to me. I thought inspections had to be done every day and I was wrong, I knew during the colder months you should not disturb them but a weekly inspection is all that is needed through spring to the autumn.

Sarah Loves... Podcasts

I have been a bit late getting into the podcast "scene" as it were. I've had to put up with a few in the car when Spurs boy has been driving but I'd never even thought about looking for some of my own to listen to. Soon that was about to change.

Music Monday: The Beach Boys - God Only Knows

This song currently on a new car commercial is probably my favourite Beach Boys track. It reminds me of going on summer holidays with my family as a child. It now also reminds me of the film Love Actually and the TV series Big Love.

This is my favourite new beauty product. Love it! Lush Tea Tree Water

Being on this course this week has been weird, fun, tiring, thoughtful and a challenge. I'm feeling energised workwise but my body feels way behind and all I want to do is sleep. Afternoon naps are back in my life! They are fab.

Attention span... zero!

Image from HERE

So I'm on a course and part of the course means I have to pay attention and revise! So why does my mind keep wandering away... ooh airplane... ooh butterfly... ooh an ant! What's happening to me? It could be an age thing or I might always have been distracted.

Firefox! You forced me to cheat on you!

I have always been a Mozilla girl when it comes to my internet usage. I've always found it cleaner, clearer and most importantly quick. Then something changed... it wasn't me... Firefox updated. I'm not alone in my rage against Firefox 4 and I turned to Google Chrome in the short hope that Firefox would sort itself out.
