Peppermint oil on cotton balls. The scent is too strong , discomforting their little noses and disrupts their scent path. It’ll also keep spiders, roaches and ants away. So.. yeah. It’s like 6$ for an 8oz of peppermint oil and all you need is like 3 drops per ball per space/area. Replace monthly, everything smells good and no bugs\mice. If you know were the mouse hides try rubbing alcohol.

Honestly, it doesn’t hurt cats or dogs. They won’t want to smell it is all, so don’t do more than 3 drops kind of thing. But yeah, I do it with our parrots and dogs (everything else I have (reptiles, rodents, fish) are just not around it and nobody seems to care. Dogs’ll sniff it and be on their way. Won’t hurt em

The cheapest is a long neck wine bottle bit of cheese or bread in the bottom—LAY THE BOTTLE DOWN place the neck of the bottle on a bath sponge pointing upwards no top on bottle mouse goes in cannot escape on slippery slope to get out. I have caught hundreds of mice in this trap this way once had four mice in one bottle.

Zoflora is an easy to use, multi-room and multi-use disinfectant that not only kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses but also has an amazing scent that lasts all day. The first thing that I loved about this product was that it kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria and it couldn’t have been delivered at a better time, to be honest! Bubba had an ear infection, then caught a virus and I had tonsillitis so once I was feeling better again, I made up a spray bottle of the Zoflora Winter Morning disinfectant and got to work cleaning all bubbas toys, wiping over the light switches, door handles and basically anywhere that we could have touched that might have got germs on it. BYE, BYE VIRUSES! 🙂

The second thing I love about this product is the scent. OMGeee…I can’t even begin to tell you how good this product smells. When I first opened it, it instantly reminded me of Christmas. The disinfectant is a blend of apple, seasonal spices, and mint on a woody base of vanilla and it is lush! I have used the product a few times now and the smell does honestly last for hours after! If I am being honest, I am now saving what I have left of it so that I can use it Christmas morning so the kitchen smells all Christmassy 🙂

The only thing that would make this product a little better was if it was available in a pre-soaked wipe or spray bottle. To be honest, this is just me being lazy as you can make it up and put it in a spray bottle or make the wipes yourself but I find that the making up a bit of it a little fat as you mix 1 cap with 400ml of water. This works nicely to clean tray o r cloth diapers It would NOT stop me from buying the product again as the scent and the cleaning properties totally outweigh the fact that I am lazy and would just like it a little more convenient.

A while back I received a sample of Child’s Farms Shampoo for Luscious Locks and Condition for Unruly Hair in a baby mag that I brought. Once they were all gone I loved them so much that I just had to repurchase. Now, Bubba has always had quite sensitive skin. When he was a newborn he suffered with baby acne and dry skin so we have to be very careful what we put on him. I was struggling to find a shampoo which didn’t bring him up in spots on his face when washing it away and that also didn’t try his scalp. Then these little beaut’s came into our lives and I love them!!

Child’s Farm is a relatively new brand to me as I hadn’t heard of them before and their range of products claim to use as much natural ingredients as possible. They are suitable for eczema prone skin and have NO parabens, SLSs mineral oils or artificial colours. Both products have a luscious strawberry and mint flavor (Bubba’s head honestly smells so good after a hair wash that I would quite happily sit and sniff him all evening!!) and a little goes a very long way which I love! They are honestly amazing and I love that Bubba’s hair is so soft after its dried and I have even had friends comment that his hair looks like its growing through so much thicker now. The bottle also says that it has a no sting formula and I can agree with that as Bubba is always pulling off his little bath hat thingy and getting it in his eyes and he never has any red or sore eyes afterwards.
Overall, I love these products. I also love this brand! On their Instagram they post the most lovely country side photos that just make me want to go and frolic around a field 🙂
You can buy these products in Boots (and probably elsewhere but I brought mine in Boots) and they are currently retailing for £3.99 each (250ml bottle) which in my opinion isn’t a bad price especially as they last for so long.
Child’s Farm do a range of baby bath products and I am itching to try more. Just need to wait until I run out of what we have now and I will be grabbing some.
I can’t recommend these enough, even if your baby hasn’t got sensitive skin, they leave their hair so soft and smelling divine!

Most people know for being an online bathroom store right? WRONG!!! They now do living furniture as well and recently I was lucky enough to get a little sneak peep into their new lines and I am so excited to share some of their exciting new products with you!

They have three main ranges at the moment; living furniture range, a country furniture range and a modern furniture range and all of them are lovely but I am particularly enamored with their county furniture range! The living furniture has a slightly industrial feel to it which is great if you can pull that type of thing off in your home (we can’t as our house is old!) and the modern range would most probably fit in the majority of home but the country range is just gorgeous in my opinion!

Their Austin range doesn’t actually go live until the 24th May but as I said, I was given a little sneak peek and wanted to show you guys 🙂

The range is classic and timeless with a re-purposed furniture look about it which I love. It is beautifully finished with decorative handles and turnkey features, I feel that these pieces really stand out whilst not demanding your attention when you walk into the room.
