Product Review – Shapley’s Mane Mousse

Product Overview

This product can used to help achieve tight, even plaits, tame manes, adds wave to hair, keep tails in shape, controlling stray hairs and can be applied to feathered legs to give the appearance of fullness. It is not sticky or greasy and can be applied to wet or dry hair. 

You can apply the mousse either  directly onto the mane/tail or it can be sprayed it into your hand and then applied to the mane/tail. The product should then be rubbed into the mane evenly to give the best result.

RRP £16.50

It is available on

Thoughts on Product

Oh my goodness – this product is amazing! It is easy to apply, it does not leave your hands feeling greasy or sticky after applying to the mane/tail and does what it says on the tin! I found that it left no stray hairs, thus laying the mane all to one side (this has been a problem in the past as Blossom’s mane is very fluffy!). I had more grip of the hair when plaiting, creating a tighter neater plait. I also like the idea of a mousse instead of a spray, allowing you to apply it to specific places with ease. 

Plaits after using Shapley’s Mousse


I am going to rate this product – 5/5.

This product is amazing and I would defiantly recommend to anyone who has a horse. This product should be in everyone’s grooming kit, especially if you are having to plait up.



July Favourites

This month has flown by (again) – I cannot believe we are already more than half way through the year! I’ve found this month I haven’t been spending as much time down the yard as I’ve been working quite a few more hours. Luckily both of my parents are now off work for the summer, so they have been kindly keeping an eye on Blossom.

So this months favourites will be about the products  that I have been using (and loving), instead of the usually horse products. I hope maybe next months favourites will be more about the horsey product again!

L’Oreal Genius Aloe Water

I have been using this moisturiser both in the morning and before going to bed. In the evening I apply it after I have cleansed and toned my face and neck. I like the idea that it is a liquid moisturiser instead of a cream and you only have to use a small amount (around the size of a pea). It does not make my skin feel oily and my skin looks hydrated and refreshed. I have also noticed that the redness on my cheeks has become more subtle (I’m not sure whether it is the moisturiser or something else within my skin routine).

L’Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Shampoo & Conditioner

I have only been using both the shampoo and conditioner for the last week of July and I have to say that it has made such a difference to my hair. After using it for the first time my hair was so much softer and looked so much more healthier just after the one use! Again a little goes a long way.

Benefit: It’s Potent! Eye Cream

Again another skin care product which I have really been enjoying. I have been using this in the evening before bed. It helps with the puffiness under my eyes and just makes me feel refreshed before going to bed! I have only got the miniature size at the moment but I will defiantly be buying the full sized version!


Soap & Glory Archery Volu-Boost Brow Fibre Gel

I am a big fan of the Soap & Glory products and especially this product. I do not wear a lot of make up on a regular basis, but I do like to make sure my eyebrows look nice. This product really helps with it, as it it tinted – so there is no need to fill in my brows. And second of all, it include small fibres to make my brows look fuller. This product makes it quick and easy to do my brows in the morning rush!

The Shopaholic Book Series by Sophie Kinsella

I have really been enjoying reading this series, especially after a long day at work – it helps me to wind down by getting my nose into a book. I find I really connect with the main character Rebecca Bloomwood, as we both have love of spending money!

I have already read – Confessions of a Shopaholic (Book 1), Shopaholic Abroad (Book 2), Shopaholic Ties the Knot (Book 3), Shopaholic & Sister (Book 4) and Shopaholic & Baby (Book 5).

I am currently reading the 6th book – Mini Shopaholic, which I am loving. I have not been able to put down the whole series and they are such an easy read and a page turner!


Goodreads App

This app has really helped me with keeping track of what page I am on in a book. It keeps a percentage on how far you have read and after you have finished the book you can rate it – which in the long run the app will give you suggestions of other books that you may enjoy.

I also like the idea that you can keep track of which books you have read and books that you are wanting to read in the future. The app also includes reviews of books, allowing you to see if it is the right book for you. You can also leave reviews yourself, to let others know on how much you enjoyed the book.

The other reason why I love this app is because you can download it for FREE!

I hope you enjoyed this slightly different blog post. I will be back to the horsey post as soon as I can (there are some scheduled for the next few weeks).

Speak to you soon, B!



June Favourites

I cannot believe it is July already! I thought I would do a post on few of the products that I have been loving over the month of June!

NAF Cooling Wash – 

This has been really useful over the last few weeks due to the warm weather. Blossom has been sweating just standing out in the field, so I have been using a cap full of the cooling wash in a bucket of water to wash her. It smells really nice and I think Blossom has liked it too, as it helps to cool her down and relax. I find a little goes a long way!

Cowboy Magic Greenspot Stain Remover – 

As it is Summer, Blossom isn’t wearing any rugs at the moment, which means only one thing… Grass stains! She likes to roll and lie down to get as grubby as possible. I have been using the Cowboy Magic Greensport Stain Remover on any stains that I wish to remove (there has been quite alot!!). You spray on the area of the stain, then work it in with a brush (I use a rubber curry comb), wait 5 minutes for it to work it’s magic and finally wipe it off with a damp cloth. You will have a squeaky clean horse with NO stains at the end. And in my case it will last all of 5 minutes before Blossom decides to go and roll again!!

Le Mieux Snug Boots

I only got these boots at the end of June and have only used them a few times. But I have to say that these are one of the best sets of boots I have ever used! They are so quick and easy to put on and take off. They are breathable, which is perfect for the summer. They support tendons and ligaments, as well as protecting the legs from knocks and bump. Last of all they look high end without breaking the bank!

Acavello Snaffle Socks –

These socks are amazing! They are so comfy and soft, they are so easy to put on (I find some socks a such a pain to get on!). I’ve worn them a couple of times now and I’ve found that they do not make your feet hot, especially since here in Suffolk the weather is quite humid/hot at the moment. Plus I really like the snaffle design!

So these are some of the products I have be loving over the month of June. We also got mentioned on the Supreme Products Facebook – how exciting! Blossom is famous (kind of!).
