Palmer’s Hand, Facial and Hair Product Reviews
A few weeks ago, I received a parcel from the lovely Palmer's team which contained lots of beautiful products to try.

Has illness killed your exercise motivation?
This is a bit of a long post, but a twitter user inspired me to write it, and as I wrote I had so many ideas that I couldn't leave out! They reached out asking how I would tackle increasing, and maintaining fitness levels with a syndrome called chronic fibromyalgia.
