How To Stay Stylish And Warm This Winter

 This winter, you don’t need to make your style decisions into a massive problem. All you have to do is to relax and check your closet for instant style inspirations that can hit you like a speeding sleigh. 

Staying stylish and warm doesn’t have to be tough, all you need are a couple of winter essentials that can keep you heated while looking sizzling hot for the new year.


Layer up!

One way to stay warm during the winter is to layer up. ‘Tis the season to wear heaps of clothes on top of each other to stay warm. There’s no rule on how many layers of clothes you can wear, but try to avoid wearing more than 10 items of clothing unless you want to look like a bloated figure walking down the street. You can rock the bohemian-look by layering a warm fleece shirt, long skirt, and a winter coat. Wearing a long skirt allows you to hide your long johns or warm inner wear!


Hats Make It Hot

Keeping your head warm is important so that you can avoid any headaches that may stem from the cold weather. There are a number of stylish winter hats that can warm up not only your head, but your ears, as well! You can opt for a simple beanie of your choice color, or you can knit one of your own! We recommend getting crazy colors to stand out from the whites and greys of the seasonal wear.


Gotta Have Gloves

The temperature can drop in no time so it’s best if you always keep a pair of warming gloves in your bag. Choose the type of gloves depending on the weather condition of the day. If the temperature is tolerable, a nice soft pair of gloves can be easily a part of your winter get-up. If you’re walking through a snowstorm, it’s best if you buy a thicker pair of gloves. There are gloves that are made from weatherproof materials that can withstand all types of weather and can keep you warm while still being in style.


Heat it Up!

Fleece is the best and cheapest way to stay warm this winter season. The material tends to catch the body warm that you emit and uses it to heat your body again, maintaining a nice balance of warmth and comfort. Popular sweaters and jackets are usually made from fleece, some even includes an extra fleece lining that can be detached so that you can re-use the jacket once the winter season is over. You can also purchase coat heaters that run on internal batteries. These portable heats can keep you warm even when your sweater can’t.


Anti-Shiver Shoes

Avoid getting hypothermia by buying the right pair of winter boots. There are a number of designs available that can tickle your fancy. You can go with traditional designs or go for a modern approach. Some shoes are also lined with fleece, maintaining the perfect balance of warm and comfort for your tired feet.


One way to stay warm this winter is to just stay at home and shop for clothes online. You can have these items delivered directly to you and you won’t have to worry about the Christmas rush and traffic!

Can Cooking With Fresh Ingredients Save Money?

If you are in charge of cooking for your family, you can understand how a simple meal can cost a lot. Preparing delicious dishes doesn’t have to be expensive. If you know where to shop and what to purchase, you can save a few bucks in the process. It also helps to cook with fresh ingredients instead of canned and bottled goods, as you get more nutrients from the ingredients that you use.


But just how can cooking with fresh ingredients save you money?


Seasonal ingredients

You can save a lot of money when cooking if you prepare meals that consist of seasonal ingredients. The prices of fruits and vegetables go down when they are in season, so take advantage of that. It helps to know which ingredients you can save on, so that you immediately know where to look when you go to the grocery or the farmer’s market. You can also save more money by purchasing in bulk.


Go green

Organic ingredients are sometimes pricier than regular ingredients. However, if you know where to look, you can save money by going organic. Compare the prices from different grocery stores and brands and you just might find some products that will save you a ton of money. All you need to do is research and locate stores that sell cheaper, organic goods.


Get it from the source

Going straight to the source of the fresh ingredients that you purchase is one way to make big savings. Instead of going to your local grocery store, visit farmer’s markets or do a little bit of research to know where the ingredients come from.


By going straight to the suppliernot only can you can knock off a few dollars from your purchase, you get the freshest ingredients as well.


Grow your own

Why purchase ingredients when you can get them for free? If you have plenty of space in your garden, you can easily start growing your own fruits and vegetables. This will save you a ton of money when cooking and you will always be sure of the quality of the ingredients that you use for your meals.


If you don’t have a large space, you can also grow herbs, as they don’t need as much growing space as fruits and vegetables. Try growing basil, rosemary, thyme, carrots,lettuce, and berries.


Swap ingredients

Indeed, some fresh ingredients tend to be expensive, but this doesn’t have to stop you from using all fresh ingredients.


Instead of going without, try swapping ingredients - look forcheaper alternatives to certain ingredients on your recipe. When you go to the grocery store, compare prices and see where you can save.


Cooking using fresh ingredients doesn’t have to be expensiveas long as you know where to look and what to do, you can save thousands of dollars in groceries each year. With these tips, you can know create your favorites Kraft dishes using all fresh ingredients for you and your family to enjoy!

Review - MooGoo Skincare

I do love a good beauty review, especially something that's natural and a bit different at the same time. That's why I was thrilled to be sent some products to review from MooGoo Skincare.
A little bit about MooGoo:-

"MooGoo was first made when the founder adapted a cream used in dairy farms to help a family member with a skin problem. The dairy version of "udder cream" was designed to heal the cow's udders and keep them in good condition for milking. It was full of skin repair ingredients and no gimmicks. Cows don't care too much about the latest fad in skin care, or even "Organic blends of Horsetail and Bergamot..." They do need healthy skin on their most valuable assets. Although the original cream used in the dairy farms was legendary for its skin healing properties, it was thick and greasy. MooGoo modified the cream for human use by keeping all the skin healing properties but making it non-greasy."

Sound awesome? Well is it! I was sent two products, the Skin Milk Udder Cream, and the 3 Vitamins Eye Serum.

Three Vitamins Eye Serum

MooGoo’s 3 Vitamins Eye Serum is made by dissolving three powerful topical vitamins through a natural base of anti-oxidant oils that mimic the skin's own sebum. I've used similar serums in the past and in terms of value for money, at £20 I think this is a good buy. The serum is slightly greasy but then you would expect that since it is made from oils! I like the fact that it has a very delicate smell since I am allergic to a lot of skin products so anything perfumed I stay away from. I found that the serum sank into my skin thoroughly and by the morning there was no residue left on my skin or greasiness. I noticed by skin did seem smoother after a few weeks of use, which is the whole point right!?

MooGoo Udder Cream
 MooGoo’s Skin Milk Udder Cream (£8) is being recommended by a number of oncologists and hospitals in Australia due to its efficacy in helping the recovery from chemo and radiotherapy induced dermatitis. In terms of its use as an everyday moisturiser, I found it probably too thick for the face unless you have very dry skin. As a hand and body cream however I found it brilliant. Again, like the serum is initially feels quite greasy but easily sinks in without much rubbing. I actually had my very first break out of eczema a few weeks ago and so I tried this on the affected patch of skin near my elbow. By the morning the outbreak had completely gone and my skin felt smooth again. Again, this product has very little smell which in my opinion is a good thing as it means it has very few chemicals in it. I'd definitely recommend it not only for adults but for children too as an alternative to the double base cream etc.

I really like the fact that MooGoo have done proper and transparent research into their product and the background of the company makes it interesting too.

Sadly at present there are no stockists in the UK that I could find, but the products are available to buy online via their website. Aside from the products I was sent they have a huge range to choose from, so it's definitely worth taking a look!

These items were sent to me for the purpose of review though all opinions are my own.

How to choose the best Bingo site!

Being a mother is harder than it seems as most of my days start with utter chaos. But, being a
mum does of course have its pros and cons. Kids believe that their mums are super ladies who will be there to fix anything at anytime. For everything they call their mothers. Can’t solve their home work? Call mum!  Cant find books? Call mum! .

As the day proceeds, I juggle between work at home and my career. The day couldn't be more
stressful. A break is something I really look forward to. When I'm finally back from work, after running errands at home, I settle in my couch with my tablet and do what? I enjoy online shopping, read articles and have a chat with my friends. And one of my friends who was online the other day pinged me to try online bingo so I gave it a try.

Online bingo has become so incredibly popular over the past decade that almost everyday I hear
a launch of a new bingo site. With the existence of hundreds of such sites, choosing the best one can got me daunting. So here are a few guidelines for every mum out there who is trying online bingo for the first time.

For a newbie it gets all the more challenging to distinguish a good bingo site from bad. Joining
a good bingo site is essential not only because they’ll safeguard your information and are reliable, but also because you should be able to reap out the benefits. Watch out for sites that are scrupulous and are just there to make a quick buck, so make sure you read the reviews of a bingo site before deciding to join. In my experience, the more the reviews the site has, the more credible it is.

It's also essential to check the site is properly registered and as a final tip, just double check it's a secure site, as you would when making any online purchase. Finally,  before signing up, read the terms and conditions beforehand and remember that bingo is a game of luck so sometimes you'll win, and sometimes you won't! For more info and details do visit free bingo site called GameVillage bingo to see what all the fuss is about!
