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!

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?

*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.

  2. ****silence**** =)

    To be fair I am ok with the silence but have to totally agree with your minute silence countdown! I thought it was only me haha!

  3. This would be great for me!! I defiantly need to sleep better than i do!! I’m trying to cut back on coffee 🙂

  4. 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

  5. This is a great giveaway thanks – I’m trying to cut back on my tea drinking so looking for no caffeine from around 3pm!

    • Oh Sue, I’ve done the same thing! All week i’ve been a zombie so I sent my self to bed early last night and I’ve only had one coffee today!
      – Good luck with it, and the giveaway!

  6. What a great giveaway I find it so hard to sleep with anxiety and stress so this would be amazing thanks for the chance x

  7. 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.

  8. What a lovely prize, Like many others I do struggle to get to sleep at night and usually struggle to stay awake during the day.

  9. This sounds like heaven to me, i don’t sleep very well at all so to be able to try different route’s would be wonderful thank you Amy for giving this fantastic sleep set away!!

  10. I do love a nice cosy night in with a movie and a few coffees as I can’t drink wine – my meds mean I get drunk from one mouthful, no joke!!

  11. 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!

    • 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 🙂

  12. My idea of a great night in is a Netflix marathon, takeaway pizza and lots of laughs with my best friend!

  13. Fab giveaway I love holland and Barrett it has some great stuff for women of a certain age like me like menopause supplements

  14. It’s very rare that I get a good night’s sleep which isn’t good as I have to get up very early for work.
    Thanks for the giveaway, and I’m keeping everything crossed as I’d love to try all of the products out.

    • Hi Anna! I’m brilliant at the moment, I have giveaway hype and it’s a Saturday!
      No worries, I’ll be running a healthy give-away every month, if it’s not her cup of tea you can always come back and try your luck in another one x
