Product Reviews

Product write ups and book reviews

If anyone would like a review or write up of products or items relating to smallholding, country clothing, cooking, the countryside, food or planting pop me an email, facebook message or tweet. I can have a look at home then write up or/and return items. Additionally, I can put them in next blog post and include photographs.

I have particular close interests in country clothing, preserving, food products, fashion, allotmenteering and chicken products. I also have an interest in special diets. I can spread the word through Facebook, Twitter (over 983 followers and rising) and on my blog, as well as through contacts and word of mouth. Moreover, I really enjoy new books and writing reviews on those also- any topic from gardening to craft.

Send me an email at

or tweet or Facebook message ‘The Good Life In Practice’ to enquire.

Thankyou, Katy,
