New Things #8

Strawberry Laces Hand Gel (link here) - I carry anti-bacterial hand gels everywhere so when I saw this one, I just had to pick it up. I'm still in two minds about the scent as I was expecting it to be a fruity strawberry smell but it's a little different to that. It does smell like strawberries but it's more on the synthetic side however, I still prefer this to the strong chemical scents.

Green Tea Ice Cream - It might be the end of September but it's never too cold to try out something new. I've heard a lot of people go on about how much they love green tea ice-cream so I picked up a small pot when I was shopping. Unfortunately, it tasted like I was eating green tea powder. I'm not sure what I was expecting really...

DVD (link here) - In the hunt for a DVD to watch, I picked this one up. It's not something that I'd instantly go for as the trailer didn't really intice me much - all this "end of the world" business is a bit dull to me but nevertheless, I gave it a watch. I have to say, my concentration span when it comes to sitting down to watch a DVD is extremely low so my mind did float away at some parts but it was a good film.

Laundry Handwash Liquid (link here) - It has only recently occurred to me that a lot of clothing items that I own are supposed to be handwashed. Oops.... Who knew that you couldn't just chuck it all in the washing machine? I guess it does explain why my stuff gets old so quickly and torn apart. I'm not sure if I'll be religiously checking through every single label just yet though.

Card Games - These are both Happy Families card games. One of them is based on Frozen and the other is a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse one. These came free with a £40 shop at Morrison's and although I collected quite a few different card games over the weeks including Domino and Guess Who, these two are my favourite because Happy Families is such a good game. I can't believe I've never heard of it before!


  1. I'll definitely have to hunt down the hand gel- I use loads of it too.

  2. I've literally seen everyone talking about the carex sweet soaps/hand sanitisers - i need to get my 'hands' on them (if you'll appreciate the pun haha), great post :-)


  3. I'm addicted to the hand gel, and it does smell better than most for sure.

  9. the hand sanitiser looks so fun, I have had a few of their fun scented hand washes before! It's a shame the green tea ice - cream wasn't too nice, I probably would have picked it up if I had seen it too!


  10. Green tea ice-cream? wow, is it just green tea flavoured? that's new :)

    1. Yeah it tastes exactly like green tea, or matcha powder.

  11. Those card games look so nice. I've never tried green tea flavoured ice-cream. Great post.


  12. Green tea ice cream sounds delicious, right up my street. It's a shame it just tasted like eating powder!
    I've never seen fruity hand sanitizer, I think I'll have to look out for it as I hate the clinical ones too


  13. Green tea ice cream!! Interesting - I like green tea but I don't think I've ever found a "green tea flavour" item that I've liked..
