Supermarket Chic

*Created in partnership with Ocado*

If you thought was just a (high end) grocery delivery service, think again. I have since discovered that they also do a huge range of bath/beauty/hair products (from the most indulgent Beauty Editor favourites – Votary, Bamford, Cowshed), right through to cheap and cheerful must-haves (keep reading for mine); home and lifestyle, even clothing. Here’s what I discovered…

First up I had no idea that they stocked (other than the food that is – more of that later) – I have always loved and bought, amongst other things, their (great for the garden too, the glass jars are really sturdy), and I just ordered this super-chic (perfect for white kitchen lovers like me), which I had actually saw a few weeks ago when I was at Daylesford Farm in The Cotswolds). And , – SO handy if you quickly need to add something onto your weekly shop -, , , or my kids’ favourite Parmesan Ravioli (I always have some in the fridge as it lasts for ages, and takes minutes to cook). Even ! Emma Bridgewater, Sophie Conran, … The list goes on…

 I’ve included an edit of my Beauty Favourites, i.e. things I already use and love, or have been meaning to try…
This Votary serum (have been meaning to try it forever).
I have super-dry skin and have been using this purse-friendly firming moisturiser for years now.
I have the kind of hair that always looks better a bit dirtier, and I literally cannot live without (the original and still the best) and get through cans of the stuff!
You probably already know how much I rate this moisturiser, and have been using it for a couple of years now.
Apart from on holiday when I switch to white, I pretty much wear year-round on my toes.
Can’t live without these (obviously) – where do they go??
Always been a big fan of this hand wash, and currently have it in both our bathrooms (lasts for ages too).
I almost always use some kind of cleansing balm, so are perfect (and I love the little pouch they come in).
Favourite lip salve.
The only hair brush I own/use (when I actually use one that is).
Love this budget bodywash (and it smells so good).
I loathe the feeling of dry hands, so always have a good quality/great smelling within reach.
And finally, I love the look of these for travelling (and they’re a great price too).

I couldn’t do a post about Ocado and not include a few of my favourite grocery shopping trolley saves, could I?
I first had this delicious Daylesford soup at Rita Konig’s house at one of her (brilliant) workshops a few years ago, and it’s been a firm favourite ever since (Tom loves it too). It’s ridiculously good. This cheddar is so yummy, and who can resist a heart shaped cheese? Not me, clearly. Plus there’s always room for a bottle or two of delicious rosé as we head into (fingers crossed) an Indian Summer…

ps: I have recently discovered and I am very into it (and the immediate results – my skin has never felt softer).

pps: there’s also currently a Big Beauty Sale on – definitely worth a look to see if any of your favourites are in it…
