Christmas Presents

Welcome back guys, I admit I havent done a Blog post in forever as I have been so busy over the festive period! As I am lucky enough to have the next week off work I thought I would do a quick Post telling everyone a few bits I got for Christmas :)

So normally every Christmas and birthday I always ask for cosmetics or skincare but this time round I didnt really ask for much make up other than MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in 'Soft Ochre' as I really wanted a base colour for when I put eyeshadow on and came across a Blogger who use's this product so I really wanted to give it a go. MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot

Next I received a FitBit which is a great product as I am super nosey and like to be healthy & fit so this product for me works wonders. It is a wrist wear product so for anyone who doesnt really like to wear anything on their wrists then this is unfortunately a no go. So there are many different FitBits but I opted for the 'Charge' as this does everything I want it to. It records Calories burnt, steps taken, how many flights of stairs, time and you can have a sneeky peek on the strap itself or the app on your phone. It also has a silent alarm which vibrates onto your wrist if your not a morning person and dont like loud alarms! This product does many more things so go and take a gander online. FitBit Charge

Another product I was lucky enough to recieve which I have wanted for over a year is an 'Olivia Burton' Watch- I find the watches so elegant and pretty, I originally wanted a leather strap from her range but then cme across her metal watches and definately wanted one so Christmas I opened the Rose Gold metal Watch and was over the moon. The watches arent cheap but are sooo worth the money as they are good quality and durable. Olivia Burton Rose Gold Watch

Also I got a pair of ankle UGG Boots which are lovely, I got the Waterproof Leather in the colour 'Chesnut' this is my first pair of UGG's so I am excited to see how durable they are and also how well they last! I am impressed that they can be worn in any weather hopefully as they are both leather and waterproof so should be able to cope in rain & snow (not like we will get snow but anyway) UGG Ankle Boots

I'm not going to list everything I recieved this Christmas but I was very Spoilt and excited to use everything I got. Im going to continue watching Charlie & the chocolate factory :)  I Hope everybody has a lovely New years!

Comment below your favourite present this Christmas....

LVL Lash Enhance

So sorry guys that I haven't done a blog post in forever, I have been so busy at the weekends and then when it comes to the evenings I am exhausted! This blog post today is definitely a big thumbs up from me.... Such a great treatment that everyone needs to try! 

Today's Blog Post is all about LVL Enhance lashes, this is a new lash boosting technique which promises length, volume and a definite lift for 6-8 weeks without perming or using eyelash extensions. I firstly seen this treatment all over my Instagram as a beauty therapist in my area was advertising and all the girls were loving it, I thought this would be so ideal for me as I don't want make up weekdays- only weekends. My job involves working with animals so I don't feel the need to go to work all dolled up so when I seen this I was interested, not having to put mascara on is a win! This technique is brilliant- a great pick me up when your face/eyes are looking dull, as soon as you wake up in the mornings or step out the shower you look great. Another wonderful thing about this is when I apply mascara they look so good- so long and look as is I'm wearing eyelash extensions without having to use a eyelash curler. 


                                                Before & After the LVL Lash Enhance 

LVL Lashes is such a low maintenance regime and so ideal for them early mornings without falling out or causing you any problems. The lift will eventually fade away as each lash ends it growth cycle and will fall out in the end, anyone and everyone can benefit from this treatment. The cost of this treatment will vary depending on the area you live in so luckily for me I only had to pay £25 which is such a bonus! LVL enhance is a safe, pain free process and is designed to be relaxing and quick and to leave you feeling confident! I'm not going to go through the process of this treatment as I'm sure you will get bored reading so I in a few simple steps the treatment is as follows.... A therapist uses a setting serum to straighten your natural lashes at the root and then tints the lashes creating the appearance of mascara. The beauty therapist gave me a small comb so that every now and then I just quickly comb through my lashes just to give them a little boost, I got my LVL Lashes done 25th October and they are still going strong. I have booked in for them to be re-done 18th December ready for the Christmas period as by then the 8 weeks will be up so hopefully they would have grown out and my natural short eyelashes will have come through. 


I am so glad I went ahead and got this treatment done as at first I was slightly worried that it wouldn't of worked so well on my lashes but I am so over whelmed with the outcome and also convinced my mum to get them done as she loves them! Overall I give this technique a 10/10 and would recommend it to anybody, please please go have a browse and for those of you interested go for it! 

Have any of you had the LVL Enhance treatment? Comment below your thoughts.....

My Weekend in Blackpool

Yet again I have been on my travels and this weekend I have spent it at rainy Blackpool! So my parents treated myself, boyfriend, nephew and them to a weekend away to give Joshua's parents a break and because he has never seen the Blackpool Illuminations which is a must have! 

We decided to come down the Friday morning-Sunday afternoon as we only wanted a short break away.. So I have been to Blackpool before but many many years ago when I was younger so hadn't really experienced it and taken it all in before so this time round was definately going to be great to see the whole town lit up in the evening. 
When we arrived we had a wander along the front, browsing in the small shops and by this point we had been walking for ages along the front so it had become dark and all the lights had come on, it was so lovely too see!! 

wasn't intending on going shopping whilst here but you always end up having a wander into the town centre.... A purse, 2 handbags, hair bobbles and a bun ring later (handbags are an addiction of mine) we then went for dinner which was of course going to be chips, we found a lovely eat in chippy which was fairly expensive but then realised it was 5 Star which explains everything but it was soooo worth the money, the food was delicious especially the curry sauce!!

My dad, boyfriend and me then ended up searching for a pub which was playing the Rugby as it was the final so they wanted to watch it, finally we found one and had a few drinks whilst watching the game. After this we went back to get the others and went down to the other end of the sea front to see even more illuminations (lights) which this time were more for kids so it was very exciting for my nephew & took some snaps on our new DSLR Nikon Camera which we are still slowly improving on taking pictures- haha! Pizza Hut is where we ended up going for some food which was very yummy but very very busy as it was a Saturday night as well as Halloween!! We took a final stroll along the front taking in all the pretty lights and eating some ice cream. I had a lovely time this weekend and hope to return back next year, the only down fall is that the illuminations are only on until 8th November and I would of loved them to continue through to December as it would be more magical for Christmas!! Anyway, that was a short in-sight into my fun weekend and I hope you all had a lovely one too :) 

Who else has had the chance to go to the Blackpool Illuminations, let me know your thoughts....

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit Review

This is a product that I have been wanting to purchase for a very very long time but just haven't had the guts to go for it, I am a girl who absolute loves contouring so spend most my time reading reviews on all different contouring products which are on the High street aswell as Counters. So in the past I brought the Sleek Face Contour Kit & also a Bronzer from the Beauty Brand Kiko which I looove but I have been wanting to try out a Cream Contour Product as I really like the dewy, healthy look. 

So after many many months of reading reviews and girl crushing over Bloggers Pictures I finally took the plunge and brought the ABH- Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit and so far so good!! I have only had this product 2 weeks and used it roughly 3/4 times as I dont tend to wear make up in the week- only weekends. I purchased this product from the website 'Cult Beauty' which I was dead impressed with as it arrived within 2-3 days after buying it. So the delivery came and I was soooo excited to open it (sad I know) but anyway the packaging/palette is so sleek and is a good size. This palette contains 6 shades which are very pigmented/build able creams to enhance your features. I have worn this palette on its own aswell as wearing on top of my Foundation & I definitely preferred it when I applied my foundation first. I like to wear heavy coverage and cover all my im-perfections so I found that when I wore this product on its own and without foundation it didn't really impress me much as it slightly dried my face up and clung to my dry areas.  
Anyway, when I wear the ABH Palette with foundation applied first its great- the shades are buildable and dewy. The only downfall is that I would really like the the consistency to be a little bit more wet as when i apply it to my face it sometimes pulls off small parts of my foundation :( For a girl who has never used a proper contouring kit in her life and only learnt how to use the product from video's online it is wonderful, this palette is so easy to use and has 4 different shades ranging from Fair-Dark so it is suitable for anyone. I am hoping that the more I use this product the better I get as it seems as though it is a self taught application! So far I have only really used 2 main shades for concealing & contouring for my face colour but I did have ago at using the highlighter including but that didn't really go down well and didn't do anything atall which is rather disappointing.

I went for the Palette 'Fair' as I am fairly pale and don't have much colour rather than red cheeks/nose when I am cold- haha! I was worried that this might of been too light for my skin but when I read reviews on the 'Light' palette I found that the colours looked quite dark and obviously didn't want to contour with colours too dark for me. This product is £39 but you can get it cheaper in America so if you know anyone going then definitely get them to grab one for you! This product is worth the money for what you get and should last a long time I expect, I do think it is a nice product to have in your make up bag even if you only use it once in a while as it definitely finishes your make up routine off.
I give the Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit a thumbs up and super happy I decided to purchase it. 


Is this a Contour Kit you would like to purchase?

West Midlands Safari Park

So todays blog post is going to be about another day out that I was lucky enough to go on, West Midlands Safari Park! This is a place that I have been wanting to visit for soooooo long but never have had the chance to go. Finally my boyfriend brought tickets (which were only £20 which I think is very reasonable) and surprised me by taking me there last weekend, It was the most insane experience. 
We set off 10:30am roughly on the Saturday as it does take a while to get there from where we live, when we arrived at 12:30pm we brought the animal food straight away as we intended on feeding a lot of the animals, We then started the Safari Drive-Through!! 

To start off with we drove past the 'Wild Asia' which involved Buffalo's, Deer's etc, the amount of different deer's we seen that day was crazy... I didnt realise there were that many different ones around the world! I cant quite remember what order the Park went in but it included African Plains/Carnivores/Elephant Valley. By this point the place was absolutely packed, the cars were back to back driving around but that's no problem as you need time to take in the amazing animals in their habitat in the park. I Was most excited to see the Elephants on this day as they are my favourite animal eveeer other than Dogs :) 
So we intended on using both boxes of the animal food yet we didnt even use half of one, to be honest there wasn't many animals you could feed, it was mainly the deers/camels, i even got told off for feeding a Zebra! 

The drive around the park is such a laugh & very fun, we ended up having a camel practically in the car with its head right down in the foot-well haha!  You do have to keep your windows shut through parts of the drive as obviously the animals are out & about but it doesn't ruin the day in any way possible. After we finished the Safari Drive-Through you get to walk around a separate part of the park but at the time most things were closing but we did get there in time to look around the things we did want to see which was fun, the only thing we didn't manage to see unfortunately were the Hippo's!! We also got chance to watch the Sea Lion show which was lovely to watch! I cant really say much about this day as there was so much you got to see & experience so I would be here forever but I can definitely recommend the place as it is for all ages and everybody will enjoy it. The good perk about this is that you get to return within a few months as long as you go in the same car and the same number of people... I thought this was a great idea!! This was also the second place we got to take our new DSLR Camera which was great as the photo's we got were incredible, I wish everyone could see them!

I was so over whelmed by every single animal I seen on this day but the Elephants definitely played a massive part & were incredible to see, especially the baby elephant with its mum & dad :) I wish I could write a lot more about West Midlands Safari park but I honestly cannot write every single part of the day :( Also another perk inside the park is that they have little shops were you can buy gifts & food etc, we brought a small pick a mix and it was sooooo yummy and at a reasonable price which I loved as most tourist attractions are very over priced. Anyway, this was just a quick post on my experience here and want to recommend it to everybody out there, you all need to check it out!

Have any of you been to West Midlands Safari Park? If so, let me know your views!

Harry Potter World Tour

Right, so I haven't done a blog in a few weeks now because I have been so so busy so now I have the chance to sit down and enjoy writing a blog for you guys. This week my post is going to be all about Harry Potter World as I had the chance to go on Monday! It was great!

Monday 5th October was my boyfriends birthday so we thought hey, why not go to Harry Potter World and see what all the fuss is about? We have been wanting to go here for a while to check it out but as I have only ever watched the very first movie I was abit weary as I wasn't sure that I would understand any of it!? Nobody can ever get their head around the fact that I have only ever watched the first movie.... I just have never got round to it :|
The set is located in Watford which is on the outskirts of London and dead easy to get to & find, free parking too which is always a bonus. Here you have to book a time slot so that everyone has allocated times to have a gander around otherwise it would be manic! We decided to go to the 12pm time slot as that would give us enough time to get there in the morning as you have to arrive 20 minutes before hand and then also meant we wouldn't of had to rush back for his birthday meal! 


I didn't realise that the movie was actually set here in some scenes, I thought it was just a re-make of all the scenes so once I found this out my excitement started. So when you arrive the building is huuuuge, we collected our tickets as we booked online and then had to queue for atleast 25 minutes but that was fine as we were having a play about with our new DSLR camera, which is fantastic and I totally recommend any first time bloggers as it is dead easy to use (I will most probably do a post on the camera once I figure everything out on it) As we were queuing the scene of the bedroom underneath the stairs was there for everyone to take a look out and to set the start of the adventure. Surprisingly I understood everything and knew what everything was which was a total relief, this tour took us around 2.5 hours to get around but one of the staff members told us that it has taken some people 13 hours which is crazy, I dont understand how it would take that long unless you were a total HP Fan!! 

This tour literally included nearly everything from the movies, I cannot even choose a favourite part of my day as it was all spectacular, although 'Diagon Alley' was pretty cool aswell as the big Castle at the very end! The Train Station scene is awesome and really makes you feel as though you are in the scene as it is that over whelming. The thing that really tops the day off is that you can buy Butter beer or have it as an ice cream... the thing is the Butter beer actually tastes amazing although it is fairly expensive. The shop at the very end is great although that is very very expensive but has great things in there for you to buy. This whole tour is mainly inside which worked out well as it was pouring it down the day we went but there is a little part which is outside but your only out there for a few minutes so it doesn't effect the fun that much!
I was expecting tickets to cost atleast £40/£50+ when actually they only cost £33 which I find fairly reasonable for how much of a good day it is and everything that you see inside the tour.


All HP Fans will love this tour as it makes you appreciate how much hard work went into all the movies, the amount of great pictures we captured and how much fun we had getting the chance to go here. Anyway, Monday night we went to 'On The Rocks' which is a Steak restaurant where you get to cook your own steak to perfection on a hot rock which is yummy, this place is divine and if you ever get the chance to go to a steak house then do it! For dessert we had homemade toblerone cake definitely was a good choice as this was sooooo good. 
                       Hope you all enjoyed reading my experience at Harry Potter Land,
                           Let me know your views on the tour if you've ever been?

Revitalising Facial Products

Hello you lovely lot, Today's post is going to be a quick review on the Liz Earle Soothing Eye Lotion and the Superdrug Vitamin E Toning Facial Mist! Both of these products are refreshing, wakening products which I personally think is a must have on a tired day when you need a quick pick me up boost of moisture into the skin. 
I have been using both these products now for a few weeks and so far so good... I have never used a product like this until my friend who is also a blogger (Lauren Shh...) was using hers and I thought it was a great product to have.
I have heard the The Body Shop Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz works wonders but I haven't yet got round to buying it so in the meantime I will just continue with the 2 products I have.


Liz Earle Soothing Eye Lotion

I got this product as a free gift when I brought the 'Daily Essentials Kit' and it is great, this herbal, non oily lotion works best on a cotton wool pad directly applied onto the eyelids to either clean or wake up your eyes, I use this product at anytime throughout the day whereas Liz Earle recommend using first thing in the morning but I don't think it matters what time, it definitely helps refresh my tired, puffy eyes! I don't use this product daily only when I am needing an instant eye refresh!

Superdrug Vitamin E Toning Facial Mist

This replenishing formula works wonders on the skin by conditioning my combination/oily skin! This product comes in a spray bottle which I literally just spritz all over my face/neck roughly 10cm away, this product can be left on top of the skin or you can gently rub in any excess with circular finger movements, another good thing about this is that Superdrug are against Animal Testing YAY! This helps to tone and refresh the skin whilst containing Vitamin E & Aloe Vera to give an instant boost to my face. Another great thing is that it will last forever as the bottle is 150ml costing £2.99 and you only need a few sprays at a time, Finally the Facial Mist can be kept in a fridge for an extra refreshing sensation.

When these products run out I will definately purchase again but I always think trying out new products is also a great way to find what best suits you! 

I would love to hear what your favourite products are to make you feel refreshed & awake?

Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Review


Its another Sunday so I thought it's time for another blog post to go up, for the past few months I have been going to get my nails done with Shellac rather than painting my nails but I thought it was time to have a break and start saving abit of money as its £20-£25 each time and stop being lazy and to paint them myself!
Last Sunday I made sure I took some time out of my day to give my nails some TLC and make them look pretty. I'm one of them girls who keep hold of nail varnish for ages and never gets rid of them so I have decided to freshen up my Varnish box and treat my nails to some new colours!
I'm loving the pastel colours on nails this year so as this summer is coming to an end I thought last weekend would be the right time to slap on the Barry M Speedy Quick Dry 'Eat My Dust 515' and to test out how good it is. My nails are fairly weak and never ever stay at a nice length, my nail plate always peels which is annoying to so that's why I thought I would give Shellac a go and see how well they work on my nails... I loved it! I started off with having Acrylics (some people aren't that keen) as I was going abroad and wanted pretty nails, when it came round to having my acrylics removed they were actually more healthier than they were before and this is when I started having Shellac to make them longer and even healthier!

I am dead impressed with the Barry M Speedy varnishes and give them a big thumbs up, I only normally keep varnish on for at least a week as unfortunately I get bored of seeing the same colour so need to re-fresh them all the time, I only have 3 colours from this range but love all 3 of them and very satisfied! The colour stayed on for a week and could have lasted longer but were beginning to chip so thought I would change the varnish before they started to look messy. (I will post pictures below of when I painted them & what they looked like a week later)
This varnish is lovely to apply, very smooth and easy application with a flat brush, I found that I needed to apply 3 coats to get the best achieved look as because this is a pastel colour it is very light if you only apply 1 coat so I recommend applying 2-3 coats! It definitely is Speedy and dries fairly fast/better than other Nail Polish Brands out there on the High Street.

Before I applied the Barry M Varnish I used the Rimmel London 60 Seconds Super Shine Clear 740 to get a lovely, smooth base coat finish and then I applied it again as a top coat to finish the look off. This Varnish is a one stroke precise application with an ultra-shine finish. Normally when my hands are in hot water thats when the Polish tends to peel/chip whereas with this range nothing like that happened and they stayed in tack all week and only just stared to chip a day ago! I think all the colours in this range are gorgeous ranging from pastel colours to darker colours, I don't normally tend to wear Barry M Varnishes anymore as I find the colour chips within 2-3 days of wearing it but this range has definitely changed my mind so hopefully they bring out another good range which are as good as the speedy range.


TOP PICTURE- A week ago today when I first applied the Polish, Smooth & Ultra-Shiny.

How the Polish looked today (a week later) before I removed it, Still Smooth but beginning to chip & peel.

 I would love to hear what your favourite Nail Varnish Brand is at the minute?

LegoLand Adventure

Good Afternoon Bloggers, yesterday I spent the day at LegoLand so thought I would let all the people out there who havent yet got the chance to go my thoughts. So I live in a little town roughly 1hr & 40 minutes away from Windsor which isn't so bad as we set off 7:15am but managed to drive past the service station we wanted for breakfast so had to wait until we got into the City Centre :(

At First when I was asked to go with my Boyfriend, Sister & Fiance and my Niece and Nephew I was a tad anxious as from what I had heard about the place it was very kiddy and wasn't much to do for the adults but still went ahead with the offer as It would most probably be a fun day out! I am so so glad I went because it was brilliant, definitely recommend LegoLand to everybody, any age! The weather was abit dull on the way & raining loads which dampened our moods as obviously LegoLand is all outside and we didn't want to spend the day soaking wet and miserable :( 
Anyway, as we arrived the sun started to come through & the rest of the day was luckily lovely warm weather. We managed to go round the whole Park and see everything they had to offer which was great, we barely had to queue for any of the attractions other than 'Aero Nomad' which was the only disappointing ride as for how long we had to queue for it was over in seconds but never mind it was still a nice ride to see the park from a sky view. For anyone who is going you definitely need to go to the 'Atlantis Submarine Voyage' which is linked to the Sea Life Center, it was amazing- fishes, sharks etc, very magical. 


Obviously it is a tiring day and very very manic with children around everywhere but it's enjoyable and fun. If I was to go again then I would take a Picnic with me as the food stalls & Restaurants are fairly expensive, me & my boyfriend both paid £9 roughly for a drink and steak roll and the other had a bratwurst roll and both weren't very pleasing :( there are plenty of benches and Picnic Tables for anyone planning on going as that's the better option! I really could talk about everything they had to offer there but I would be going on forever so everyone go and check it out as I give it a big thumbs up. The overall thing that topped my day there was a massive stand with a Lego picture of Taylor Swift, my ultimate girl crush!! Whoever thought of that idea and made it is soooo talented :)
The park offers such a variety including a Train that takes you around the whole resort, Mini Land which is a village of lots of mini Lego to recreate scenes from the USA & Europe and used nearly 40 million bricks, Star Wars, a massive Maze which was very fun, 'Coastguard HQ' this was great- a battery powered boat which you get to steer around a course with various obstacles in the way! We were going to go on the Rapids as the last ride as we thought that would be the better option rather than walking around all day wet but when it came to that part the queue was horrendous so we all decided to give it a miss and stay dry and warm :) I would looove to go into the Hotel at the resort because from the outside it looks wicked so i'm guessing the inside would be very cool, a definite must for next time!


Overall It was a brilliant day with the Family and such a good experience, so pleased we went and got to enjoy it along with the warm weather.

Comment below your thoughts of LegoLand and how much you enjoyed it...

Mac Studio Fix Fluid


Good Evening bloggers, I haven't done a blog in a few days so thought I would do a quick review on the Mac Foundation which I am loving at the minute whilst drinking a cuppa!
So, I used to work at the chain store Boots which was pretty much a disaster as I used to spend soooo much money on cosmetics & hair products, oooops!

Whilst working at Boots I began an obsession with Foundations & Eyeliners, I admit I was obsessed. The amount of money I spent on many of these products was crazy, after finishing at Boots (over a year ago) that was when I finally found the 2 products which I still use to this day and absolutely love! So I will quickly mention the best liner for me which is the Benefit 'They're Real push up liner' this works great on my eyes and it'll take a lot for me to love another liner! This product isn't for everyone as at first it is fairly difficult to get the hang of but I definitely recommend sticking with it and giving it a chance.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation-
This foundation is wonderful, a must have in every girls make up bag. A light, build able foundation with medium coverage & a dewy finish. I have re-purchased this product yet I haven't even finished the first bottle, you can start off light with this and build to the coverage you like the most. I do advise to buy the pump with this as it is a screw top and flows out quite fast which means wasting some!!

This foundation is not matte unless you want it to be and apply a fair amount of powder, it has a dewy, healthy finish and definitely not drying for the skin. It applies so smoothly and lasts for hours, I apply this foundation with the Real Techniques 'Expert Face Brush' as it is extra firm and broad for a great application for liquid foundation and blending, I find this is sooo good for making my face have an even complexion and to blend all my foundation in even when I'm in a hurry!
All in all I recommend MAC Studio Fix to everyone, such a light/scented foundation & definitely a thumbs up from me, I will Link below all the products mentioned in this Blog Post.

Comment below what your favourite foundation is...

Liz Earle Skincare

So, I thought now was the right time to do a review on the 'Liz Earle Daily Essentials Kit-Normal/Combination' as I have been using the kit for nearly 2 weeks and I am definitely already seeing some results!
Me & my friend took a trip to Brighton a few weeks ago and went on a big shopping spree, my friend went intending to buy the Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser and also the Instant Boost Skin Tonic but we both ended up buying the kit as it was a definite must have for the price!
So I really did not plan on going to buy any skincare but am so glad that I did buy this kit as its 100% worth it. The kit includes 2 Muslin Cloths, Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser 100ml, Instant Boost Skin Tonic 200ml, Skin Repair Moisturiser 50ml and a Gentle Face Exfoliator 50ml all for £45!! 

Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser 
This cleanser is so gentle on the skin it is unbelievable, such a smooth and delicate consistency and removes all make up and dirt. All you need is 2 pumps with this cleanser as a little goes a long way, it is easy to remove with the muslin cloth as once you pop it in some warm water the cloth instantly turns soft and buffs away the dead skin.

Instant Boost Skin Tonic
This Toner is to die for! sooooo refreshing, and an instant pick me up for dull, tired skin. This has such a lovely scent to it and brightens up the face as I've noticed, contains hydrating Aloe Vera which i can feel already making my skin super soft. 

Skin Repair Moisturiser- Normal/Combintion
This moisturiser is gorgeous, a definate must have in your beauty regime for all skin types as it is tailored for everyone! Such a rich consistency and does not sink into the skin straight away like some moisturisers out there, goes such a long way around the face so a little of the product is only needed. I am over the moon with this product as it has conditioned my skin and given me a definate healthy glow.

Gentle Face Exfoliator
I try to use this product 1-2 times a week as that feels the right amount for my skin, this exfoliator is so gentle on the face and contains jojoba beads which completely helps to buff away the dead skin and helps with my complexion. To remove this exfoliator I use a different cloth which does not hurt in any way to remove unlike others out there! 

All in all I am one happy girl with this Daily Essentials Kit and so glad I picked it up as I have heard good reviews for the past few years on the skincare brand. I feel as though the Cleanse & Polish & Skin Tonic could run out quite quickly if I use it twice a day like recommended so this is why I only use the Cleanser every evening and the Skin Tonic morning and evening as I only need a small amount, the Moisturiser is most probably going to last a life time as you really do only need a small amount!

 Once this Kit has ran out I will be purchasing it again, a very satisfied customer!

Pizza Time

Good evening you pretty little things, thought I would do a quick post on this chilly Saturday night.

Me and my partner decided that we really wanted to try and make Tanya Burr's Homemade Pizza Recipe as it looks delicious! Today ended up with us going to the supermarket and finally buying all the ingredients for it.....

You literally need minimal ingredients which is great and very convenient for just a quick pizza craving. We lined up all the ingredients in the kitchen ready to start and have fun making, altogether the pizza's took roughly 2 hours but that's with intervals and fitting a bath in between which is very handy. Out of the homemade dough we made 2 pizza's and managed to have some left over which we can freeze and use another time.

To buy all the ingredients it cost £13, not expensive atall and you can use any topping you really wanted on the pizza, because this recipe is sooooo straight forward it was so fun making and stress free. For the 2 pizza's that we made we went for Chicken, Bacon, Sweetcorn and on the other Ham, Chorizo and Pineapple... pretty weird i know but very yummy! Loving Chorizo at the minute :)

Overall, I recommend everyone to make her homemade pizza's as it feels as if you are eating a healthy non-greasy pizza which doesn't feel like you are being naughty and eating a Domino's haha!

For anyone wanting to know a little bit more on this post then write a comment below and I will get back to you!

So guys, I thought I would do a quick post whilst i'm cosy in bed with Milo (that's my dog if anyone didnt know who will almost certainly get mentioned alot) :)

 Last weekend I went and explored Brighton with one of my friends who I've known many years and who is also involved in the whole blogging world! We went Friday-Sunday and it was fab! We both thoroughly enjoyed it and had such a laugh the whole weekend, I would definitely recommend Brighton!! 
So we arrived around 2pm ish on the Friday and settled in to our accommodation which was a cabin in a familys back garden which we booked through 'airbnb' which is a crazily cheap booking website so everyone should seriously go check it out, we then went and drove around Brighton Seafront and had a wander. That evening we went to an independent Italian restaurant which was yummy and had such a lovely meal and of course a bottle of wine! 

Saturday morning we woke up to such a beautiful sunny day and went on a mad Shopping Spree in the town Centre and Lanes, Literally shops everywhere! We intended on budgeting our money on clothes & beauty but practically spent our entire money on make up & skin care, oops! Saturday evening we went to another Independent Italian which was pretty disappointing for our last meal but it definitely didn't ruin the trip! We then went on and enjoyed the nightlife which was great and such a fun night resulting us getting in at 3:30am which we definitely did not plan on!

As soon as we woke up Sunday it was such a miserable day meaning that the final day was a pretty wet day to travel back in but that didnt stop us from having fun on the pier and eating fish and chips in the rain whilst trying to hold our umbrellas! We then ended the morning in the arcades and having a hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows which was what we needed before heading home which ended up being a 5 hour journey!


The final thing which we both loved was the ridiculously cute lanes in Brighton, definitely a must see! If you would like to see how much fun we had then take a look on my instagram which you will find at the top of my page on 'contact'
