1) Squirrel Sisters Cacao Orange £2.49

TWO PORTIONS PER PACK. UNDER 91 CALORIES PER BAR. VEGAN. RAW. GLUTEN FREE. PALEO. SOURCE OF FIBRE. NO ADDED SUGAR. We’ve added a delicious new flavour to our range of raw snack bars… Cacao Orange. We had a lot of requests from customers to extend our brownie range so after lots of recipe testing cacao orange was born. It’s very similar to the cacao brownie with the difference of a natural orange flavour, which is a really special ingredient as it contains different elements of the orange including the oil from the bark and rind. We use the highest quality, whole, natural and raw ingredients in all our bars so that everyone can indulge in guilt-free snacks that keep you going.

2) The Mio Body Brush £14.50

With Summer fast approaching this body brush will help you get your body looking and feeling good! As we get a little older, our skin becomes less efficient at this whole detox/elimination process and less effective at naturally shedding the layers of dead skin cells that clog up the surface. Body brushing is a fast and very effective way of helping keep your skin in peak condition. What makes this body brush better than others is that it’s made of natural boar bristles (not nylon!) and has rubber massage nodules which really helps with stubborn fat.

3) Madeleine Shaw’s New Cookbook- ‘Ready Steady Glow’ £8.99 (Amazon)

We absolutely loved Madeleine Shaw’s first cookbook ‘Get The Glow’ so when we found out she was about to release a second we had to get our hands on a copy! READY, STEADY, GLOW is a book of two halves offering nourishing recipes that can be made in under 30 minutes, alongside sumptuous show-stopping meals perfect for the weekend. All recipes are wheat- and sugar-free, bursting with flavour and nutritional value, and contain natural ingredients that can be found in your local supermarket. We love the fact that the recipes are fuss free and can be ready in 30 minutes- perfect for busy people that want to eat well.

4) REN Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist £24.00

We recently got sent this amazing spray from REN and have both fallen in love with it. It’s a fine mist that instantly shields and protects the skin from the ageing effects of harmful free radicals and environmental pollution. It helps to strengthen the skin’s natural defences against oxidative stress, boosting the skin’s ability to detoxify so for those that live in a busy city like us this is a skin saviour.

5) Emma Bridgewater ‘Purple Veg’ Pasta Bowl £21.95

If you follow us on Instagram then you might have noticed that we use this bowl in a lot of our food pics! We are both big fans of Emma Bridgewater and when we saw this bowl we had to get it. It’s such a great size, lovely shape as well as having a gorgeous pattern. Check us out on instagram @squirrelsisters to see what meals we have used this bowl for.
