  • SKYDIVING – WHAT TO EXPECT

    September 26, 2020 by

    It’s become apparent that this year has been a write-off in terms of experience for many people. i have found myself reflecting more on the stuff i have done in the past years, one of them being my charity skydive last year. i’ve ALWAYS wanted to do one. It was just perfect timing that Fitzroy,… Read more

  • SOAP + GLORY VITAMIN C FACIAL WASH

    August 12, 2020 by

    First, let’s be specific. This post refers to the ‘Face Soap and Clarity 3-in-1 Daily Detox Vitamin C facial wash‘. Phew! I’ve been using this glorious facial wash for about 4 years now and there are a few good reasons why I’ve continued to use it. I’ve always been a big fan of Soap &… Read more

  • A VISIT TO…VIRGINIA WATER

    August 9, 2020 by

    This may be somewhat delayed, however I thought it would be good to suggest some nearby places to visit during this strange time (or all year round), as well as use it as an excuse to post some lovely pictures! At the start of the year I managed to visit Virginia Water in Northern Surrey,… Read more

  • MINI AVON HAUL

    August 4, 2020 by

    A couple of months ago, I bought a handful of products from Avon. I’d become familiar with the brand a few years ago when local representatives would post a brochure through our letterbox. Whilst this hasn’t happened recently, especially due to the current pandemic, I found myself wanting to try out new products instead of… Read more

  • 2020 – MID-YEAR REFLECTION

    July 1, 2020 by

    Today is the 1st of July, which means we have passed the half way point of 2020. What?! I think we can all agree 1. where has the time gone – again?! 2. it’s been a very weird one so far. Many of us probably had plans to do certain things this year, but a… Read more

  • REVIEW – FEATHER AND DOWN LOTION + SPRAY

    June 9, 2020 by

    I’ve tried to find various reviews on the Feather&Down Sweet Dreams pillow spray and body lotion, but haven’t been successful, so I thought I would create my own. I managed to get these both in a duo pack after Christmas for about £4. I don’t believe they sell the body lotion on its own, however… Read more

  • LIZ EARLE VS ALDI HOT CLOTH CLEANSER

    June 5, 2020 by

    I won’t lie, I was quite excited to compare the Liz Earle cleanser to the Aldi dupe! I’d been waiting a while for Aldi stocks to come back in and voilà! Now I’ve used the Liz Earle cleanser before, but stopped as it hurt my eyes. But a few years later, I gave it another… Read more

  • ALDI PINK CLAY SKINCARE

    May 17, 2020 by

    I’ve always wanted to try the Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay mask, however, I cannot justify the £41.90 price tag! Randomly, on my outing to Aldi of all places, I came across some dupes – not only of the mask, but also a scrub and cleanser. Intrigued, I purchased the set and can say… Read more

  • CHATTY WEEK – BODY FAT

    May 10, 2020 by

    Body fat. We all have it. And we need it, whether we like it or not. This is a topic that I could spend hours going into, involving BMR, health, genes, gender, lifestyle, blah blah, but I won’t bore you with that today! I’m also mindful that some PTs may be a little skeptical with… Read more

  • REVIEW – BUMBLE + BUMBLE SUNDAY SHAMPOO

    May 6, 2020 by

    I was a little tentative to purchase this shampoo at first, mainly because of the mixed reviews and hefty price tag for 250ml … £22.50! Honestly, I have wanted to try this for a while. I ordered it on lookfantastic and I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised. It claims to be a weekly… Read more

  • CHATTY WEEK – VE DAY

    May 3, 2020 by

  • REVIEW – MARIO BADESCU DRYING LOTION

    April 29, 2020 by

    I’m a little late to jump on the hype, but I thought I would give the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion a try. It’s an award winning spot solution and has become a staple in my skincare routine. I’ve always suffered with blemishes from hormones and stress, so I invested in this small glass bottle (that… Read more

  • VEGAN BUTTERNUT SQUASH RISOTTO

    April 26, 2020 by

    I first came across this Risotto when I went to my work Christmas Do last year. Oh my, it was delicious! I thought I would give it a go and re-create it. This can be vegan and gluten-free, providing you keep an eye on the ingredients, especially the stock cube. I’m pretty pleased with the… Read more

  • WHAT’S IN MY MAKE UP BAG?

    April 19, 2020 by

    I’m always curious to see what is in others make up bags and I’m sure I’m one of many. When I started this blog I said I would be posting some beauty posts, so hopefully this is the start of many. Whilst it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, I’d be interested to see… Read more

  • THINGS TO DO WHEN QUARANTINED!

    March 22, 2020 by

    My original post for this week was meant to cover my Travel Bucketlist and places I’ve been to – however, due to recent events, I didn’t think it would be appropriate! My holiday to Gran Canaria has been cancelled as a result so I’m feeling a little down and am sure others are due to… Read more

  • St Patrick’s Day – Guinness Cupcakes

    March 15, 2020 by

    Guinness? In a cupcake? Yes. What is St. Patrick’s Day?From my research, this special day celebrates the St Patrick’s death, a patron saint in Ireland. It involves certain traditions of coming together, sharing a few drinks, hosting Irish-themed parades, donning some shamrocks and green attire; I also learned it is a national holiday for Ireland!… Read more

  • Chatty Week – Mental health

    February 2, 2020 by

    Another mental health post from some gal? You’re probably wondering. It’s common knowledge now that we need to be made more aware of mental health. This is a personal, raw post which to some element makes me feel somewhat vulnerable, however it is also something so important to me and I empathise with anyone feeling… Read more
