Earth Conscious Deodorant – Review

ec

I’ve been lucky enough to try this deodorant from Earth Conscious after Elly, one of the ladies behind the brand, contacted me to ask if I would be interested in reviewing the product. Up until now, I’ve only used a crystal deodorant, so I was very excited to try something new.

Firstly, let me just say that delivery was super fast, which is always a positive. There’s nothing worse than slow delivery from an online shop.

The deodorant I was sent is the Lavender, which is lightly scented with Lavender Oil. It’s quite pleasant. Very subtle and definitely not overpowering so that you smell like you’ve fallen in a bath of essential oil (you know what I mean, right?!)

It comes in a little metal tin, which I love since it could be reused it for something else so there’s no waste, and nothing to end up at landfill. Continue reading

Recovery Break

image

Hey there, lovely people.

It just occurred to me that I’ve updated my Facebook account, but not my blog.

Surgery went well, no complications. Unfortunately I developed acute pancreatitis and have been rather ill. Constantly vomiting bile meant I had an NG tube fitted with a bile bag, but they ended up manually aspirating my stomach because I was still vomiting past the tube. Anti-emetics didn’t help either. Prior to the tube, I had a choking incident where contents of my stomach (a piece of food, oddly, despite having not eaten) got lodged in my throat. Very scary experience and once that I hope to never experience again.

Early days to be able to say whether things will improve, but I’m still recovering from acute pancreatitis, which can take months.

But for now, blog related things are on hold for a week or two whilst I recover. Apologies to those waiting on PR to go up.

Much love

Surgery. Again.

Hey lovelies. 🙂

How are you all? Good, I hope!

Tuesday is a big day for me.

I have surgery. Again.

Starting to feeling like it’s never-ending. I’m going in to have a permanent stent put into the opening from the pancreas, into the duodenum, holding the sphincter permanently open (Sphincter of Oddi)

Here’s a diagram I pinched off the web. Where is says ‘hepatopancreatic ampulla and sphincter’ is where the metal stent is going. Ignore the Gallbladder. I don’t have one. Nor does my pancreas look like that. Mine is just a deformed blob. Anyway…

Pancreas diagram

The last stent was up in my CBD (common bile duct) to straighten it out, since it’s twisted, and to hold the sphincter open. Unfortunately that left me in agony with a lot of ductal spasms, which were not nice at all. So it was removed in November. This one is purely to hold the Sphincter of Oddi open, to allow free flow drainage from my liver and pancreas.

Hopefully it’s successful! Goodness knows my liver and pancreas need it to work.

Wish me luck ❤
