Grove Avenue Allotments - Heritage Open Day 2016

Grove Avenue Allotments - Heritage Open Day 2016
Hi everyone.
On Sunday 11th September I visited the Grove Avenue Allotments in Chilwell as part of Heritage Open Day weekend. Heritage open days are to celebrate England's architecture, culture and history, offering free access to properties and events which aren't usually open to the public.
Heritage days are to bring local organisations, societies and individuals together. I've lived in Nottingham all of my life and it's amazing to see how many events are happening locally which you can go to. 
I went to the Grove Avenue Allotment plot as I am a green party member at heart and I'm interested in natural growing produce and encouraging honey bees to pollinate. If it wasn't for bees then humans wouldn't be able to survive.
The allotment is huge and it was heartwarming to be approached by so many lovely gardeners who were all helpful and willing to answer any questions. My favourite flowers are the giant sunflower which towered above me.
Things that I enjoyed were being reminded of the film Wallace and Gromit "the curse of the Were-rabbit" as the vegetable competition was the most exciting part of the year in the film. I also thought about my dwarf lop rabbit Magic and how she would probably eat the entire allotment contents within 2 weeks. My rabbit always seems to be hungry and after eating the entire allotment she probably still would be.
Let me know in the comments below if you have been to any local events in your area or visited any venues as part of Heritage day weekend.

Inecto's Naturals Coconut Infusion Range

Inecto's Naturals Coconut Infusion Range
Hi, everyone.

Inecto is one of my favourite cruelty-free brands for toiletries because they are :-

- Vegan Friendly
- Not Tested On Animals
- Have No Unnecessary Nasties
- Paraben Free
- Made In England

Inecto has kindly sent me their naturals coconut infusion range to review which is available for a limited time at Body care and Savers. All of the range contains organic coconut oil in shower gels, body sprays and body lotions.
The 2 scents in the infusions range are tropical coconut (which contain papaya oil and organic coconut oil) and is lime & mint coconut (which contains zesty lime and organic coconut oil.) The design is beautifully high quality, vibrant and colourful. The products brightens up my bathroom nicely
The body lotions (£1.99 each) are creamy white and light in texture. The moisturisers absorb easily into the skin with a strong scent which leaves the scent lingering on your skin for days. My skin smells lovely and it feels very moisturised.  No dry patches on my elbows or on my knees. Success!
The shower gels (£1.49 each) are a creamy white texture which lather up very easily. I would recommend using a sponge or a loofah for a extra clean feel.
The body sprays a £2.99 each and are a fantastic travel size for your handbag. They contain 90% natural origins I find that 3 pumps are plenty to cover your whole body.  It's recommended to use the shower gel and lotion.

My personal favourite scent out of the 2 is the tropical coconut infusion as it transports me to an exotic location. I would very much like to be sat on a sunny beach drinking pina coladas. The range is perfect for summer as I wear more fruity scents around this time.
Watch the video below on my review and recommendation of Inecto - Coconut moisturiser cream.
