New Things #4


Water Bottle - Drinking a lot of water is nothing new to me. I've been doing it for years but I used to drink from pre-filled plastic bottles and then re-fill them. That's supposedly a really bad thing to do as they contain a dangerous chemical called BPA which can be leaked out through wear and tear . So I got myself a BPA-free bottle called Aladdin! It's a lot tougher and I can reuse it as much as I like! Of course, you can just buy lots of pre-filled water bottles and just throw them in the bin once you've drank it all up but that's a lot more expensive. It's much cheaper to buy large bottles and pour them into this bottle. Or you could use tap water, of course.


Lush Lots Of Love Gift Set - I won this from a blog giveaway on Confessions Of A Secret Shopper back in February (which feels like a lifetime ago now!). This is one of Lush's Valentine's gift sets and most of it smelt amazing (I wasn't a fan of the Neon Love Soap). I'm still quite new to Lush so this was the best prize ever. I couldn't stop sniffing the Sex Bomb Bath Ballistic when this box first arrived, it smells amazing!


Graze Snack Box - I rarely order these unless there's a promotion of some kind as I do think they're a little pricey, but they are very healthy snacks! I was really pleased with this box though, loved all 4 punnets. Surprisingly, I quite liked the mango chutney despite not being keen the first time round. The Graze brownie was delicious! That's saying a lot considering I tend to avoid chocolate cake. Plus, it's healthier than normal brownies! If you haven't already signed up, you can get a free box by clicking here, or enter the code LINDAL54U when registering an account at Graze.


Pizza Crisps - Ah more food, and perhaps not so healthy this time! I spotted this in a small Asian grocery store and I knew I had to pick up a bag. I love pizza and I love ridged crisps so it was a no-brainer! I have to say, they do actually taste very pizza-like and they even have little bits of melted cheese on there. Definitely the best crisps I've had in a long time and I wish I'd picked up a few more bags!


Socks - I love buying new socks as they're always so soft and comfortable! These are from Tesco. They're black socks with patterns on the soles, which just about creep up onto the sides so you can kind of see them when I have them on. I love wearing  brand new pairs of fresh cotton socks as they're always so soft!

  5. The snacks look very yummy! And the water bottle thing, that is correct it's not good to refill regular water bottles.
