Keeping up with the Unicorns - Smart Grooming Products - Super Blue

No photo description available.

Smart Grooming Products were introduced to me by a friend who had overhauled her whole wash box to contain nothing else. Must be good, I thought and went on a spending spree! Over the next few months I am going to share my thoughts on the Smart Grooming Products I put in my shopping basket as Oscar, Arnold and I put them to the ultimate test of Keeping up with the Unicorns.

No easy task...and those of you who follow @geegeeandme on Instagram will have had a special preview of what’s to come! Although they say ‘save the best till last’ I can’t help but go all out and share my favourite first. So here goes...

The little Pot of Blue aka Super Blue is my new addiction. You won’t find a hot water bucket of mine without a dash of this magic powder in it! When it arrived I was surprised at the size, no bigger than a mini pot of jam served in a cute B&B at breakfast time. As instructed, I added ¼ teaspoon of the Super Blue powder to my bucket of warm water, instantly turning it purple. Nothing said unicorn more!

I carried the bucket over to Oscar, who had a big day ahead of him hunting the Quorn Friday country. I paused and hoped it wouldn't actually turn him purple, for the fear of a hunting etiquette faux pas. Already clean – as always – I hot clothed his body, sponged the water over his mane and shampooed with a blue shampoo rinsing with the same Super Blue and hot water cocktail. I repeated the process on his tail and legs, dipping the hair for no longer than 30 seconds. The results were stunning, he really was whiter than white and without a purple patch in sight.

Top Tip: as winter comes to an end and coats become a little dull, dry and brittle, I have been using this little pot of blue whilst hot clothing with a dash of my favourite oil. It cleans, brightens and refreshes the coat whilst adding back some of the essential oils needed at this time of year. Roll on spring...

Sitting proudly on the footstool in our living room is a beautiful keepsake by Papier. I rushed to put it together in the days after we lost Bridge, as a story book of our time together. Mixed emotions of grief, that I wasn't able, or ready (I am still not...) to accept that he has gone, then fear of having an iPhone malfunction and loosing the precious memories of the short time we had. 

It arrived carefully wrapped in tissue and it was impossible to hold back the tears as we turned the pages, Papier have created something we will treasure forever.

Goodnight Bridge of Cally, our beautiful boy. The best was yet to come...
