What inspired us to make this wonderful fun and fruity treat?

Trying to find healthy snacks was always challenging for us; especially when on days out or picking the girls up from school and nursery. Tears and tantrums would often follow. We needed an on the go refreshment that would fill them up just a little, until dinner time. So, we put all of our crazy brains together to find out the stuff our kids and their friends loved and this led us to the idea of creating Naturelly.
Jelly + Juice, simple! But, how could we make it healthy and not full of sugar?
Well, first of all we discovered this special gelatine free, wibbly jelly made from Lily Plants called Gellan Gum. This clever jelly helps fill little tummies up until meal time with it being a natural dietary fibre and by mixing it with fruit juice it helps stop those cravings for sugary snacks. We also made sure we didn’t add any sugar OR sweeteners, OR artificial colours, OR artificial flavours OR artificial preservatives! Being parents ourselves, we only wanted natural ingredients for our little ones. Our juice comes straight from squeezed fruit making Naturelly sweet and healthy by nature with nothing naughty.
Plus, the good news is, it’s only 36 kcal and 7g (which is 1.5 teaspoons) of naturally occurring fruit sugars per pouch. Also, as it’s a jelly it means less mess in the back of the car on journeys home from school or dance class. Yay!
We really hope you and your little ones enjoy Naturelly as much we all do
(It’s okay for Mums and Dad to like them too you know!)

Stocking-filler socks that save endangered species


Imagine if your Christmas gifts could save a critically endangered species? Critically Endangered Socks has launched a five-­‐piece sock collectionso you can do just that. Retailing at £12 per pair and available in two sizes, (UK  4–7/8-­‐13) the mind-­‐blowingly soft and luxurious socks are made  from a blend of sustainably sourced, Oeko-­‐Tex certified bamboo and cotton. Each pair is named after and draws inspiration from one of five critically endangered animals, with 20% of sales going towards a different hand-­‐picked animal charity, making receiving socks for Christmas at last far more interesting. In the first year, the London-­‐based startup has already notably protected 20,000 square metres of rainforest habitat in Borneo, home to  the critically endangered Borneo Orangutan, of which there are only 40,000 left. The orangutan pair is orange in a nod to the orangutan’s auburn fur.

The company also supports the Maui Dolphin (63 left in the wild) with a deep blue pair to match the sea amongst which the animal spends  its  days,  the Amur Leopard (100 left in the wild) with a grey and white pair, influenced by the leopards light winter coat, the Sumatran Elephant  (2,000 left  in the wild) with a pink pair to match the animals pinkish grey colouring and the Hawksbill Turtle (23,000 nesting females left in the wild) with a green pair to match the luscious algae which the animal dines on day and night. The socks are packaged in a recycled cardboard box which includes a simple fact sheet informing customers about the critically endangered animal charity they are supporting with each purchase. Every sock also  features an embroidered icon of the animal they protect, serving as a true badge of honor for the wearer. The socks, which are only available online, offer effortless, timeless style which can be worn with pride again and again. For more, visit


The Draughtsman Damsel Kindle Edition by Emily Klein (Author) “Such a traditional and wholesome novel full of olde world loveliness and completely accessible with many themes that are just as relevant today, I would thoroughly recommend this novel!” InTouch Rugby Literature Editor! Historical romance, set in medieval England!

On Amazon HERE

“No, we may not, my lord, for your falseness deters me from it!”

“Alright,” said the Earl, realising he had been bested by his ten-year-old daughter.”

“Please do not revert to this harsh formality with me, my Lady Annabelle. I offered my friendship to you honestly and wholeheartedly.”
“And I refused it. Now, if you will…”

When Annabelle’s father, the closest counsellor and architect to the Duke at Calais, is called back to the English court, his ten-year-old daughter Annabelle is torn from her home and from her best friend, the Duke’s youngest son, Thomas, whom she swears she will one day wed.

Though forlorn and homesick, Annabelle grows up to be a sensitive, precocious damsel. She loves mathematics and drawing, but her aversion to the ‘female arts’ causes her to use her girlish trickery to avoid them. This risks her eligibility as a bride, and compromises others.

When her family’s connection to the Duke diminishes, and the Duke’s mental health falters, her parents are at their wits end about procuring a love match for her. Especially as all their efforts amount to naught, because of Annabelle’s anxiety.

They are then torn with conflicting loyalties between the king, and the desperate, mad duke who now calls them back. Perhaps here lies the solution for their wayward daughter?

Pride, politics, madness, and falling unwittingly and unwillingly in love complicate matters to the point of disaster.

The Draughtsman Damsel is a compelling story of long-lasting love and age-transcending friendship. It is well-seasoned with politics and science, castles and knights, maidens and romance, and is set in medieval England and France.

B&Q launches its Festive Fairy Doll for Shelter, set to raise more than £25,000 for homeless families this Christmas

● B&Q to sell special Shelter Fairy doll to raise money for national charity partner, Shelter, to help families facing homelessness this Christmas

● A minimum of £2 from the purchase of each doll will go towards helping continue Shelter’s life-changing work

LONDON, [23 October 2018]: This Christmas, B&Q will be selling an adorable Festive Fairy doll to raise money for its national charity partner, the housing and homelessness charity, Shelter. For every fairy sold, B&Q will be donating a minimum of £2 to support the charity’s frontline advice and support services. Set to raise more than £25,000, the fairy will make a real difference to families facing homelessness this Christmas.

Complete with a magical wand and fairy crown, the Shelter Fairy has a special animation feature and sings ‘We Wish you a Merry Christmas’ when you press its hand – making it an ideal gift for those who want to help a good cause and spread some festive cheer.

Participating B&Q stores nationwide will also be holding special fundraising events in stores the weekend 7th -9th December.

B&Q’s partnership with Shelter stems from a shared commitment to make a good home accessible to all and has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds so far. In addition to supporting the charity’s frontline services, the leading home improvement retailer also funds a team of specialist DIY skills advisers.

The DIY skills advisers, located across the country, provide practical help to families settling into a new home following a period of homelessness, as well as supporting others to stay in their current home by making essential home improvements.

To date the DIY service has helped almost 500 families to create homes they feel safe, comfortable and good about. This includes teaching people basic DIY skills, such as how to put up blinds or paint walls, in addition to carrying out essential jobs like fitting extra security locks.

Andy Moat, People Director, B&Q said: “At B&Q, we believe that everybody should be able to have a home they feel good about, and our goal is to make home improvement accessible for everyone. We’re glad the money we raise from the sales of the festive Fairy doll can further support Shelter in making a difference to those people in difficult circumstances.”

Polly Neate, chief executive of Shelter, said: “A family becomes homeless every 11 minutes in Britain, and we want this to stop. That’s why we’re delighted that B&Q have chosen to support Shelter with their special festive fairy.

“As well as sprinkling Christmas cheer, this little fairy will help us to raise vital funds in our fight against bad housing and homelessness, so that one day no family will have to face the trauma of losing their home.”

B&Q’s Shelter Fairy costs £10 and is available now in B&Q stores nationwide, a minimum of £2 from every toy sold will go towards Shelter.

Selling unwanted items; make sure you speak to the experts, says

New data from IHS Markit Household Finance Index highlights the financial strain on British households

Consumers looking to generate extra cash by selling their unwanted items need to be sure that the platforms they use to part with their goods puts them in touch with trusted advisors, that can help them achieve the true value of their possessions. This is according to Mike Shepherd-Smith, founder of

Earlier this month, the IHS Markit Household Finance Index announced that British household savings declined in October, driven by the weakest salary growth in the last eight months. The fallout has signalled increased pessimism amongst UK households towards their financial situations and future budgets, and with Christmas around the corner, households are expected to feel this pinch even further.

Shepherd-Smith says that the availability of online marketplaces such as eBay and Gumtree, as well as new players such as Shpock and Vinted means consumers have plenty of options to choose from when it comes to selling their possessions. While these sites might be quick and easy to use, he argues that – at a time when every penny counts – how does the consumer know if these sites are able to reach the right person, generating for them the right price?

“The findings from the IHS Markit Household Finance Index paints a concerning picture for UK households, and with Christmas on the horizon, taking the decision to part with your unwanted items is a sensible approach for generating extra cash. But with the range of online marketplaces available, it’s important to use a platform that provides an honest price.”

Shepherd-Smith continues: “Sites like eBay and Facebook Marketplace have done very well building their business around convenience and ease of use. They are excellent for everyday items, but they are rarely the best option for selling treasured possessions or family heirlooms. If you’re not an expert, you could end up under-selling an item which could have generated you a small fortune.

“Traditionally, auctioneers were the primary route for people to sell their heirlooms, but logistically this process has challenges too, notably when it came to finding an auction house that specialises in selling your particular item, but also has the ability to reach the most appropriate buyer or collector.

“With the world of antiques moving increasingly online, it’s important to provide households with easier methods to connect with experts. Recently, figures from, which describes itself as the world’s premiere online auction site for art and antiques, revealed that £128m worth of items were sold through its platform in 2017 – a rise of 21 per cent on the previous year. This reinforces the value which can be found by turning to the experts when it comes to selling your specialist items – something which could prove critical in the current financial climate,” Shepherd-Smith concludes. is the website that bridges the gap between consumers and antiques experts. People interested in selling an item can access the website for free and choose from over 300 categories. The site then provides you with a list of contact details of appropriate potential buyers or intermediaries, either based on distance or by level of interest in the item. With one click you can then email them, starting you on your journey to realising the true value of your possessions.

adidas and New Zealand Rugby unveil stunning new All Blacks jersey

Seamless woven technology produces a 25 percent lighter jersey
Fully automated process delivers unparalleled fit, strength and speed
Return of the white collar, a nod to the heritage of the team

TOKYO, Japan, 31st October 2018 – adidas and New Zealand Rugby (NZR) have today unveiled their most cutting-edge All Blacks jersey to date.

The new jersey was unveiled at a launch event in Tokyo, Japan, with adidas revealing an advanced jersey of the future, which also has a nod to the All Blacks past as well.

Designed and manufactured over an 18-month period, a group of senior All Blacks gave input into the design and performance of the jersey, including Captain Kieran Read, Beauden Barrett, Samuel Whitelock and Sonny Bill Williams.

James Foster, VP adidas Specialist Sports said the key element of the design was the use of seamless, woven technology – an industry first for a rugby jersey. As well, the jersey construction was fully automated which aimed to provide unparalleled fit, strength and speed and was 25 percent lighter than previous designs.

Another feature sure to please All Blacks traditionalists is the return of the white collar, last seen on the All Blacks jersey between 2011 and 2014, while finer details sees 3D logos and raw, elastic cuffs in the design.

“We’re proud to deliver industry firsts, especially creating a fully automated, lightweight design for the All Blacks,” Foster said.

“We continue to strive for a fit that mirrors a ‘second skin’, suitable for all athletes across the field. We have undergone rigorous fit and performance testing with key athletes over the last 18 months and we are confident that this release will deliver the best performance yet,” he added.

“There’s no doubt that the topic on everyone’s mind will be the return of the white collar. We worked very closely with the players and New Zealand Rugby to reintroduce a well-respected and traditional element of the jersey. We’re really happy with it and hope All Blacks supporters are too.”

All Blacks Captain Kieran Read says: “I’ve been honoured to wear a few black jerseys in my career. There’s a lot of amazing work that goes into the design and we’re always excited to see where adidas takes its innovation when it comes to new technology and design. We enjoyed working alongside the adidas team to help create it and can’t wait to wear it out on the field.”

The new All Blacks jersey will make its debut in the Test against Japan in Tokyo on Saturday 3rd November 2018, with the team also wearing it on the rest of the Vista Northern Tour. It will be in use until Rugby World Cup 2019 (when a new All Blacks jersey will be launched) and then return for the 2020 All Blacks season.

The replica jersey will be available for fans to purchase from 1st November (RRP NZ$150). Jerseys will be stocked at all adidas stores, major sporting goods retailers, rugby retailers throughout New Zealand and the world, and online at
