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

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To 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

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
