I know these lists are a little cliché, but I strongly believe in ‘promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate‘ so I thought I’d share my appreciation for a few great products I’ve bought and/or used in October.
Amir Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser & Humidifier
I was diagnosed with asthma a few months ago and during the trials and errors with the first medications I was given, I decided to research some other solutions. Asthma attacks can have many triggers but for me, dry air caused by electric heating seems to make it worst. This nifty little humidifier (that can also be used as an essential oil diffuser) has solved the problem!
Toggl Time Tracking Software
As its name says, Toggl is a time tracking software. I use it at the office to track the time I spend on different translations but also find it useful to record the time spent writing blog posts or managing my Etsy shop. I particularly like the colour-coding feature.
North Ridge Ainslie Half-Zip Pullover
I bought this top a few days before our latest trip to the Lake District and it was a really good investment. It kept me warm and dry during our hike up Scafell Pike in horrendous conditions, it’s very comfortable and fits amazingly well. It’s perfect for hiking and I’m quite sure it will be good on chilly early morning/late evening runs too.
Simple Regeneration Age Resisting Night Cream
I’ve always had a sensitive skin and I’ve used the Simple products for a few years, mostly the soothing eye balm and the light moisturiser. Since moving to the UK, my sensitive combination skin has become a sensitive normal/dry skin, especially during winter, and I needed to change my care routine. I don’t like wearing a rich lotion during the day so this rich night cream is ideal.
DK Eyewitness Travel Guides – Prague & Amsterdam
Since Edward offered me a Kindle last year, I rarely buy paperbacks but I always make an exception for travel guides. I like snuggling up in bed on a Sunday morning and make plans for our next destination… There is something special about flicking through the pages of a book when planning a trip. We will be visiting Amsterdam in a few days and Prague soon after, and adding those guides to our growing collection seemed very appropriate.
