Home and gift with a story with House of Juniper (with discount code)
When you persuse the Home of Juniper website, you come away with a cosy, fuzzy feeling. With an easy to navigate website, the products just lure you in.
And the philosophy behind Home of Juniper is one that adds value to the products as you browse and here is what it’s all about:
At Home of Juniper we sell a distinctive collection of products; including well-being ranges, kitchenware, stationery, home decor, textiles and gifts. Products are carefully chosen not only for their usefulness and beauty, but also for their provenance.
The ethics and values
The people at Home of Juniper research the products, support British designers and look at the stories behind the products. They have values and are also very reasonably priced.
You get an ethical feel from scrolling through their shop and I love the wellbeing section. So many candles! The people at Home of Juniper have been kind enough to give me a discount code to use and I’m deciding between:
The moon phase clock (I’m currently reading about the lunar cycles and astrology). That aside, this is so eye-catching!
Art Book Review ~ ‘The Impressionists’
Boolino got in touch to ask if I’d like to review a book about the group of artists known collectively as the Impressionists. And I thought it would be fun to read an arty book because our daughter had been learning about Van Gogh. (Though I didn’t realise he was an Impressionist until we read the book!)

Review ~ Reed Diffuser by Pairfum London
The last decade has seen stunning growth in medical technology that has resulted in improved equipment, more facilities and an increase in the treatability of medical issues.This has had a huge overall impact on the medical industry, and with the plethora of doors that technology has opened in the industry we have also seen a growth in the number and options of health science jobs available. So, what exactly can you do if you are looking to get into the health science sector? The options available in the industry are pretty vast, and while degrees will equip you to study in many different sectors, it’s important to decide where you want to work in order to find out what the best path will be for you.Before starting a health science degree, you should decide whether you want to work in:
- Mental health care facilities
- Doctor’s offices
- Long-term care
- Government offices
There are a number of different roles that can be performed at any of these institutions. Your role will be decided by your strengths and talents, and obviously where you would prefer to be placed.
The most common health science roles include clinician roles, administrative roles, and public sector roles.
Clinician roles are for those who like a more hands-on, people’s person approach. They usually work in a healing or rehabilitation capacity. These clinician roles generally include (but are not limited to):
- Physical therapists
- Medical assistants
- Occupational therapists
- Research scientist
- Dental hygienist/technician
- Before you decide that you want to take on a clinician role within the health science field, remember that you have to be good with people. You are also likely to come into contact with disease, injuries, bodily fluids and other aspects that simply come with the territory – you need to be able to handle this.
Not everyone enjoys a hands-on approach, and may simply not have the same characteristics that make them enjoy working closely with people as much as others. This is where administrative roles come into the health science industry. They are the engine of the healthcare industry and make sure that facilities run smoothly. The roles in administrative capacities include:
- IT department
- Marketing and public relations
Public sector roles
Some health science professionals prefer to work in a public sector capacity that deals with the healthcare in a more broad and overall spectrum, rather than at a molecular level. These are the roles often found in the public sector of health science:
- Public health
- Health education
- Environmental health
As you can see there is a huge variety of professions that you can go into if you decide to study a health science degree. While we have seen a huge increase in the number of jobs created through advancing technology over the last decade – there is bound to be more still to come due to the ever-evolving nature of the industry.
The healthcare industry is growing at an unprecedented rate, and if you have what it takes to make the grade when it comes to tertiary education, then you are heading towards a career that will set you up for the rest of your life.
We loved the table but it had a glass cover. And it was a ‘standard’ height coffee table – the perfect height for a cruising baby/toddler to grab hold of and slam toys onto.
Of course, the glass was toughened but we just couldn’t rest easy and we wanted to let our daughter explore as freely and easily as possible. So out the table went. Continue reading
Hair accessories… what little girl doesn’t love them?
We were sent a selection of hair grips and headbands from the Hair Accessory Store and our 7 year old was very excited! She has been growing her fringe out for a while now and is thrilled that she can tuck it behind her ears stylishly without it falling back.
Girl’s Got Style
I say ‘stylishly’ because she really ‘knows’ her own style and whenever we buy her new clothes, she comes with us to the shop or looks online. Otherwise, there’s really no point because it’ll just go back to the shop for a refund. Hubby and I both believe that it’s an important part of her growing up, empowering her – to be able to express herself, and not dictate to her what she can and can’t wear – we never have done (school uniform is an exception to this, obviously – though you can also get decent uniform designs now!)
And Hair’s The Thing
Starting from £1.49 from the selection we were sent, I’d say these accessories are excellent value for money, given that hair things inevitably end up in the same places as odd-socks in our house – they won’t cost a fortune to replace!
You can shop their range of products here.
