Coconut & Vanilla Figs

You may be aware, but Miss Pru & I live a fair way away from each other. While we chat on the phone and online on a frequent enough basis, it’s rare that we get to see each other very often (although we’ve vowed to change that in 2014). I was lucky enough to have [...]

The green superfood blend that ANYONE can drink!

Cavewoman Pru has been taking Shakti’s Superfood Blend for quite some time now. She’s been rabbiting on about how great it is. I had “add green smoothie to daily regime” on a very long to-do list of things I wanted to introduce in to my diet, and a couple of weeks ago, I finally pulled [...]

An open letter to the manufacturers of natural & organic skin care

I’m going to get up on my high horse for a moment here. There’s one thing, both as a consumer, and as a retailer, that really pisses me off, and that’s the loose use of the term organic. Quite recently, Jess Ainscough wrote a blog post about an organic café serving her a burger that [...]

My ‘Lorna Jane’ journal

I’ve always loved notebooks, nice pens & journals. When I was a child, I used to love the start of the school year and spending oodles of time wandering around stationery shops and newsagents buying new pens and books. When I grew up, I wanted to own a stationery store. While I grew out of [...]
