Sunday round up - 13


It's been a strange week this week as it's mostly revolved around going into hospital for a day procedure (investigating into a long term health issue). On the plus side I've had some exciting things come through the post to play around with so in a couple of weeks time they will be up on the blog in detail. So, heres my week in pictures! 

1: A 30th birthday- I teach Drama at a secondary school in Kent and work with some lovely people. It was my head of departments 30th birthday back at her family home in Maidenhead so myself and Tony had a little road trip up there to celebrate. We all had such a lovely time, great company, great food and drink, and most important of all, the birthday girl drank bottle after bottle of champagne. 

2: Pic a Mix from Tesco- I can't manage eating a lot of artificial sugar because of all the issues I have with my diet and body, however before going on my pre hospital diet I was craving a 'Pick a Mix'. I persuaded Tony to go for the XL tub and filled it with all our favourite sweets. I only managed a hand full before my body told me to stop so I can slowly make my way through what's left. 

3: *Black and White hair wax- I was kindly sent this wax a few weeks ago and myself and Tony have been giving it a whirl. Overall we both really enjoy using it and will continue to (more detail in the blog Post HERE ).

4: Injecting colour into my outfits- This picture was actually taken a couple of weeks ago when we had a lovely burst of sunshine and I was looking back at it on a dull and rainy day. The blazer was a steal from a New Look kids sale (age 14-15) and looks fab on sunny days to inject some colour into your outfit, which is a great for me as someone who lives in black, white and grey.

5: Smile there's wine- This was after two days on a boring, plain diet plan from the hospital and I was craving something with a flavour and for some odd reason was thinking about wine. I'm not a big drinker anymore anyway as I can't get away with much but a couple of glasses of wine will be on the cards next week for sure to celebrate May half term! (was thinking of doing a post a day again? Your thoughts).

6: Pre hospital drink- I won't go into detail but this pre procedure drink was vial. Enough said. However Pretty Little Liars is great and literally can't stop watching it.

7: *Skin Pep Dark Circle Eraser eye cream- The postman gave me a delightful package on Thursday which contained a very exciting eye cream. I've used it every night since receiving it and am still reviewing it as I want to use it for a while before sharing my thoughts. First impressions are good, and fellow dark circle sufferers watch this space.

8: Masque Bar Sheet mask- Have been loving these sheet masks that I picked up from Boots and this weekend I'm hoping to leave the house and purchase more of them (Post HERE). Have you tried these? 

Have a lovely Sunday!
xoxo

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day!

I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine.

Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down.

What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the Yes To Cucumber range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try! 



It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…

Hi, hey, how are ya?

It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know. 
So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that). 
Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips. 
Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products I use on a rotation and not all at the same time. My skin enjoys it when it swap aroun…
