January Gift Guide – All about Wellness, Self-Expression and Being Healthy

Happy New Year again everyone! Hope the first week of the new year has been kind to you and you have slowly settled back to your normal routine with getting back to work and kids getting back to school.  I am sure after all that indulging around the festive time, many of you have decided to embark on a new journey of wellness and health streak and embrace a new way of life such as Veganuary or Dry January.  Others make resolutions such as doing more workouts, reading more books and placing loved ones, family and friends in the forefront of their life. Whatever your wish for 2019 is, we wish you all the best!  For us at Yeah Lifestyle, 2019 is going to be all about family, love, wellness and empowerment. We are embracing 2019 with our arms wide open and promise you of lots of interesting and fun things for the blog, it will be our way of saying thank you to our readers. This month, for our gift guide, we are sharing some great ideas with keeping the theme of wellness, self-expression and health in mind.   We start off by sharing a fantastic THEY Grande Dark Chocolate in Black Watch from Adexe for the man in your life who embrace time and knows how valuable this is. Next, we share a Rose scented Vegan Beauty Set from True Obsession for the ladies in the house. This is followed by an aromatic Sushi & Spice Green Tea from Roqberry.  Our resolution this year is to go more organic, one product at a time, and we are not forgetting the little ones, so here we share about Child Farms products for the Kids. Finally in an effort to be more active and healthy in 2019, we have joined UK’s first activity based subscription box from Buckt to cover fun and new activities around the Greater Manchester area. Do read on and look out for our unique Discount Code (specially for our readers), so you can save some money.

Natural Vegan Beauty Set from True Obsession

Let’s make January a fantastic Vegan month by going vegan, not just when it comes to food but also when it comes to what we use on our body. I love True Obsession and have featured them on our blog before. This time I am sharing with you about their natural rose scented vegan extravaganza beauty set which is just the thing you need to relax after such a hectic Christmas and New Year period. These items can be individually purchased from their website or as a set under their gifts section. You can also custom make a gift set, so feel free to drop them an email with a list of items which you like and they will happily create a gift hamper with the products of your choice.  This beauty set consists of a vegan body butter which comes in a 250ml bottle. The body butter smells amazing and is so easy to lather on the skin. The body mania hand cream (75ml) is also the perfect size to pack in my handbag to take with me when I am out and about.  The set also comes with a rose bath bomb which has a high content of natural oils,  which is just what I need as this year is all about self care. There is also a rose-scented hand-made glycerine soap as well as a bath pearl. This beautifully smelling beauty gift set retails for £21.50 and can be purchased here.

Roqberry – Sushi & Spice Green Tea 
In our effort to be more healthy in 2019, we have resorted to drinking more health based tea and the Roqberry tea is just what I needed to perk up my New Year! This tea is very unusual but totally pleasant tea, we were sent the Sushi and Spice flavoured Green Tea which made us fell like we are really starting our detox month with a bang! I love my herbal teas, but this tea really surprised me with its aromatic ingredients such as cardamon, ginger, wasabi, arame dried seaweed which I would have never thought to try together.   Instructions on how to brew this tea is included, which is 3 minutes , you might think this seems a long time and that that the tea will be strong and overly infused, however, to my surprise the tea was light and fresh and had such lovely bright flavours, perfect to clear out the cobwebs gathered up over Christmas whilst sitting back and not doing very much.  Having achieved 2 stars at the Great Taste Awards 2018, the judges described this variety as: “A clever blend, with ginger brightening the seaweed umami notes.” In line with Roqberry’s tradition of foodie focus and tea and food pairings, Sushi & Spice is especially delicious alongside Japanese cuisine and is also recommended as a pairing with cheese.  It epitomises the brand’s ethos of ‘blending the rules’. Will you love it?  A box (which contains 18 pyramid tea bags) costs you £7 and you can purchase it here.

Childs Farm Organic Products

We were sent these three lovely products from Childs Farm (the award-winning company) to be featured in our January Gift Guide.  The box consisted of their latest range of bubble bath (250ml), baby moisturiser (250ml), as well as 2 in1 shampoo and conditioner (250ml).  Our kids totally love Childs Farm as they have always used it even when they were babies.  As parents, we want to ensure the products our kids use are vegan, organic, mild in fragrance, suitable for sensitive skin and contains natural ingredients, and Childs Farm is just that!  The moisturiser is made with shea and cocoa butter and is great for babies, toddlers, older children or even adults (we tend to use this too whenever we can) and suitable for those prone to eczema.  The foaming bubble has a lovely tangerine oil and cleans and moisturises the skin at the same time (it also creates lots of bubbles so our kids love using these in the bath compared to other brands of bath) while the 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner (suitable for all hair types) cleans and detangles hair in no time and has a subtle vanilla custard and rhubarb extract fragrance. The moisturiser costs £4.50 while the bubble bath and the 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner cost £4 each. You can purchase these as well as their other range here or from your local Boots store.

Buckt Subscription Box

If your new year resolution (like ours) entails getting fit, going to the gym or doing more exercise then you would love our Buckt Subscription Gift Guide idea! By subscribing to Buckt, UK’s first activity based subscription box, you get to head out and try new and fun activities to suit your likes in the area of your choice.  In our January box covering Greater Manchester area, we received a booklet with tickets for two to activities such as the Trampoline Park – Jump Ninja, Meditation Class – Kadampa, Two Drum Lessons with a professional drummer, Tom Rice and  visit to Elizabeth Gaskell’s House.  Its so varied that we are able to try new things we would have never thought of and try doing things that we already enjoy. How does this work? First, head to their website and signup (fee starts at £12.50 per person), next wait patiently while your tickets arrive in a lovely booklet form (there are up to 5 mystery tickets /activities per month, whereby you can either do 1 activity or all five, as the cost for these are already included into your subscription).  So in reality, although you pay £12.50 per month, the activity, in total actually costs a lot more, so you definitely save money if you end up doing all the activities (each activity can cost anywhere from £5 to £20). What more? Use our code : YEAHLIFESTYLE to get 50% discount on your subscription.

    I didn’t set any resolutions but I have visions. One of such is self-care and indulging myself for myself. Now that I read your post, I don’t feel any guilt for wanting to prioritise myself. It’s necessary.
