Friendly catch-ups, the power of This Works, plus Nutri Ninja and Magniflex!



Hope you are well. What’s the weather been like where you are? Its turned so cold here in London, although a good excuse for early nights and getting my beloved Northern Nights flannel back on the bed!

I have had my friend Susan staying with me for the last week or so, she is over from New Zealand for a while and it’s been great to see her. It’s funny though how one can get so set in a routine and living alone I think it’s even more so. It’s been good to learn to be around someone again for so much of the time (and had its challenges too!). We have done lots of fun stuff, enjoyed showing her my area of London and generally been catching up on the last three years. Here is a pic of us in my favourite local coffee shop ‘The Watch House’.

Craig, friend and flowers

this-works-sleep-maskThis Friday (11th) sees a wonderful collection from This Works called ‘Midnight Magic’ and will feature in the show at 3pm. The collection has my ultimate favourite This Works product the Sleep Plus pillow spray, a tub of bath soak and even a sleep mask to blot out that morning light (particularly great when you work shift work!).


The reason Sleep Plus is my favourite is that the fragrance is activated by movement in the night meaning that if you have a problem STAYING asleep like I do the fragrance triggers you back to sleep which I find an absolute life saver!


Then on Saturday I am excited to be hosting the 11am show for the Christmas Nutri Ninja Today’s Special Value offer. The two most used gadgets in my kitchen are my Vitamix and my Nutri Ninja. My favourite things to make in my Nutri Ninja are my green spinach, avocado and cucumber smoothie and my Huel protein shake with added banana and peanut butter, so delicious and great when running out the door.


Then next Monday into Tuesday I will be launching the Christmas Magniflex Today’s Special Value offer. It’s a mattress topper that can be used year round to add a layer of warmth or cool to you bed as well as luxury, comfort and support.

I have been lucky enough to try one out ahead of time and it’s heaven! I already have a one sided Magniflex ‘Coolmax’ but this double sided topper is much thicker and luxurious, what an excuse to upgrade! One side is still the special coolmax for summer months or hot sleepers and the other is a wool blend soft fabric which will keep you cosy on the coldest of nights. With this cold weather at the moment the warm side combined with my northern nights flannel bedding is a heavenly mix, I slept SO well last night!


craig-with-rolled-up-mattressIt’s practical too as there are four elastic strips to keep it in place regardless what ‘side’ you are using and it comes vacuum ‘rolled’ so really easy to get to the bedroom of your choice even if it’s the spare bed in the loft!

In my case I plan to buy one to upgrade for my bed and keep the original one to go on the sofa bed for my lucky guests this Christmas!

Please tune in so Stefano (who is flying over from Tuscany for the show) and I can tell you more!

So, that’s it for this week, thanks so much for reading my blog and do drop me a line below to post about anything I have mentioned here or any other questions.

Big, big hugs

    Hi Craig love your blog.. Was wondering if you can put a Magniflex topper over a memory foam mattress that I have had for about 8yrs to update it without having to by a new memory foam mattress? Thankyou Emma

    Hi Craig! Love your new blog! So much exciting things coming up! The Midnight Magic collection by This Works sounds fantastic and I will definitely be tuning in for the TSV’s!

    Sounds like you enjoyed your visit from your friend from NZ. How lovely.

    Hi Emma, lovely to hear from you. Yes, you absolutely can! That would be a great idea for you I think instead of going to the expense of buying a brand new mattress. Really excited about the launch! Speak soon, Craig x

    I bought the double sided mattress topper last month and love it. I was thinking about buying the ‘This Works’ but wasn’the sure. After reading your verdict on it I’missed going to giverdict it a go.

    Hi Craig,

    I can completely understand how you feel about someone staying with you. I live alone and some of my happiest times are being in my flat alone dancing … sometimes at 5am! It is nice just being able to live exactly how I want, but I am scared that it may make me even more difficult to live with than I was previously! hahaha.

    Another great blog, looking forward to the next one!

      Hey Amy!

      Lovely to hear from you! Glad you agree about that, I do love my alone time! You can’t beat it! Dancing until 5am! Love it! ha ha.

      So happy you enjoyed my blog and hope you get to check out the next one which is out now!

      Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

      Take care
