TOTM Organic Cotton Tampons, Pads & Liners
Did you know that the lining of the vagina is one of the most absorbent parts of the body? This means when it comes to buying tampons, pads and liners it’s REALLY important to consider what you use. We think organic cotton should be the obvious choice for increasingly informed, health conscious and environmentally responsible women. Free from rayon, chlorine, harsh chemicals, perfumes and dyes, this healthier range of femcare is available online and conveniently delivered direct to your door, thanks to TOTM’s unique subscription service. Prices start from £2.70.

A Year of Beautiful Eating, by Madeleine Shaw
We love that Madeleine focuses on cooking with seasonal and fresh ingredients in her latest cookbook, A Year of Beautiful Eating. The book is split into seasonal sections, showcasing the most nutritious and wholesome ingredients throughout the year. Alongside the creative recipes, Madeleine has a simple guide to eating seasonally, her tips for eating in tune with nature and different meal plans for each season. Step into spring with lamb chops and parsnip mash, make the most of autumn’s root vegetables with a squash and tomato curry, and warm up in winter with a spicy beef stew. Yum!
Perfect for: Creative and healthy meal ideas to eat seasonally throughout the year

Spiced Apple Granola, Rude Health
This delicious granola is made with real apple pieces, flavoursome cinnamon, spelt and six exotic grains – all drizzled with sweet honey and baked with unrefined cane juice sugar. It brightens up any bowl of porridge and adds a tasty texture when sprinkled on yoghurt and topped with fruit. The only problem is resisting the temptation to grab a handful every time you pass the cereal cupboard…
Perfect for: Adding some glam to your boring brekkie
Pick it up at: Available online and in store at Sainsbury’s, Wholefoods, Waitrose and Ocado amongst others.
Reebok X ELLE Yoga Padded Sports Bra
We are in love with the urban street art meets Caribbean design of this sports bra. Offering great support for medium intensity exercise, the long line fit flatters and provides comfort at the same time. The pads are removable so you can control how much support you get (always good to have choice!) and the speedwick technology means that you’ll stay cool and dry whilst sweating in style. With a bright graffiti print and unique black back straps, you’ll feel like a bad assana on the mat!
Perfect for: Treating yourself to a new sports bra that ticks all the boxes of support, style and sass.
