Hotel Chocolat Valentine’s Day Sleekster Chocolate Box

Well, this is definitely an awesome thing to get through the post. This arrived this week in a slightly too large beautiful box and very well cushioned to protect its precious goods. Beautifully gift wrapped in a Hotel Chocolat paper tote bag with ribbon handles and a cute little note card is one of this year’s Valentine’s Day offerings from the luxury chocolatiers.

The Netflix Tag

Well then, my pal Gemma from Flutter and Sparkle just tagged me to do a blog tag, this hasn’t happened for YEARS! And what’s even better is that this might be the most perfect Blog Tag for me ever because it’s about what I watch on TV. Being freelance and working from home we pretty much have something on TV constantly and love watching films. We have NOW TV and Netflix (UK and US) as well as a vast collection of Blu Rays. The challenge with this one is that I don’t often remember what network I’ve watched what on, so I’ll do my best to stay relevant to Netflix but may well get confused.

Blogging Barriers and What to Do Next

I’ve been mulling over whether or not to write this blog for a while now, but think I ought to as I’m hoping there’s some other bloggers or creatives out there who might be able to offer some words of advice and inspiration. This year is my sixth year of blogging as Jayne’s Kitschen/Jayne Kitsch and it’s been seven years since I first ventured into the world of blogging. Blogging has been the one thing that has been with me for that length of time, so it’s very important to me and honestly the only thing that has always been there for me, no matter what.

How to Care for Over-processed and Damaged Hair

So, I recently discovered what happens when you mess with your hair too much and am in the process of bringing it back to health, thought this might be a useful post for many of you. I bleached my hair for the first time ever about three months ago and then made the mistake of doing three other strong treatments within a week of it, with the dye I use (typically Directions semi-permanent) it doesn’t harm your hair and it’s very conditioning, but when you use something strong with chemicals like peroxide or ammonia in them, that’s when things can get messy.

What’s Inside December’s Nerd Block?

Here’s my second Nerd Block review for you, really liked the November box so kept the subscription running for another month, it’s great value at just under $20 a month and coming from Canada which generally means you get more unusual stuff that in the UK equivalents. I was so tempted to get Loot Crate […]
