It’s the Holland & Barrett giveaway! #goodsleep


Hollandgiveaway2If you’re eagle-eyed, you’ll know this has been in the wings since the beginning of February, I was struggling to sleep and had been continuously moaning about it on social media, sorry followers. A girls gotta get her sleep.

Luckily Holland & Barrett stumbled upon one of my many moany posts and contacted me about trying some of their products, of course I said yes. I was a zombie at that point so I’d have said yes to sedation!

Lucky you though, I cheekily asked if I could grab a goodie bag for my readers, that “goodie bag” turned into a £100 give-away bag. Don’t ask don’t get!

I treat you so well!

So you lovely lot are in to win;

A Holland & Barrett Good sleep goodie bag worth £100!!

The bag includes; 

  • A Bag of Creamy Camomile Hot Chocolate £4.99
  • A box of Camomile Tea £2.50
  • Relaxing Tea, A set of herbal tea bags to help you relax before bed. £2.50 
  • Two boxes of herbal sleeping capsules Valerian plus & Passion flower stress relief £9.99 each!
  • Lemon Balm capsules for mild anxiety and reduced bloating (added bonus) £7.99
  • Bed time B6. Vitamin capsules that top up your B6 levels, perfect for a great nights sleep £4.99 for 100
  • 5-HTP A strong sleeping tablet for a longer deeper sleep* £16.50
  • Relaxing lavender set; £20!
    Temple balm, Sleep mist & lavender oils. 

You can find out what I thought of the products in my previous article, where I received the goodies.

or if you want to hear what I have to say you can watch one of my Vlogs; 

I’ve loved every product that I’ve tried, obviously I have my favourites.. like the hot chocolate and the lemon balm capsules and obviously I have things I’m yet to try. Herbal teas,  I’m just not one for herbal teas though, personal preference, you’ll have to let me know what you think of these products…

It’s up to you, you’ve got to be in it to win it!

a Rafflecopter giveaway


The winner will be announced on PurelyAmy’s Facebook on the 19th of March at Mid-Day! (GMT)

The winner has been announced!

Of course these are all here to give you the best nights sleep so try one at a time, something suited to your lifestyle. I don’t like taking supplements during the day as I don’t know what my next move is going to be. If I take a stress reliever or relaxant before a jog, I wouldn’t be very productive!

So try a few things at a time and find out what works for you.

My personal favourite is the creamy chamomile cocoa, It’s easy to drink and you always have time before bed time.
I’m not really one for cocoa but there’s something vanilla esque about this drink, it’s so creamy and soothing. I froth mine up with milk frother and dust it with cocoa (when I’m not on a chocolate ban). I drink it regularly so you’ll often see snaps of me in bed with a cup-a-cocoa 🙂

Have you tried any of these before? What are your favourites?

As mentioned, I received these as a good-will gesture and have been gifted the Giveaway prize for free.Please read all of the Terms & Conditions before entering. UK Only.

*Whilst most of the products are herbal based, I have not tried 5-HTP as I have done my own research on the product and believe it won’t be ‘the best’ for me. Please research what your body needs for your own ‘best purpose’ and seek medical advice before taking anything you’re unsure about.

    Fab giveaway, thanks for the chance to win! I’d be thrilled to win as I struggle with sleep, my idea of a great night in would be peace and quiet, candles, soft music and just pampering my body and soul, following my heart attack and numerous infections this is a high priority for me this year

    • 17/03/2016 / 5:24 pm

      Oh dear! Looks like you really do need a nice relaxing sleep (and a good lie in) xx

    I fancy trying the lemon balm capsules but I’m interested in quite a few of the others too- more from a calming and relaxing point of view than a need to sleep one, although hubby struggles with sleep so we could share. May check out the holland and barrett website for these products.

    • 14/03/2016 / 11:16 am

      You’d share? Lucky hubby! I kept mine all to myself! Well, actually I gave one of the boxes of teas to his mum, hopefully she’ll be more relaxed..

    A long relaxing bath and music helps before bed.

  20. 12/03/2016 / 10:52 pm

    my idea of a great night out is going for a very long walk and a picnic in a remote filed, watching the stars

    • 12/03/2016 / 10:55 pm

      That sounds amazing Barbara, I wanted to do that last year but living in such a big city I rarely get to see stars!

    I greatly enjoyed this post! It’s clear that you are passionate about this subject, which is a refreshing change from most authors. I wouldn’t be surprised to see you get an offer to write for a famous publication. I hope you know that people actually appreciate quality writing like this!

    • 09/03/2016 / 4:04 pm

      What a lovely thing to say! Thank you, I try to put passion into everything I talk about but health and fitness is ‘my thing’ It’s my life!

      Fingers crossed good things will come my way but for now, I’m happy to offer advice to others who’re still finding their way 🙂
