Exciting News: I’m Expecting!

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to share with you that I am 12 weeks and 3 days pregnant and due on the 23rd of September which may explain as to why I have been so unactive on here for a while! Along with feeling happy and excited to meet my little baby have come with a few problems.

All the way through my first trimester my blood pressure has been very low leading to me feeling exhausted and dizzy all the time, I have also fainted a couple of times at work which has been pretty scary. I have now had to quit my job as I can not cope with meeting the demands they required and stand for long periods without feeling faint. I want what is best for me and my baby and to try to have a steady pregnancy as I am only 5ft2 and have a small frame.

Although I have been struggling, I am now starting to pick myself up so you should be expecting plenty of pregnancy posts, updates and baby hauls which I am super excited to do!! I hope you are all as happy and excited as I am and looking forward to going through the incredible journey of me becoming a mother.

Take care & lots of love

Remington Pro-Ceramic Hair Straightener Review.

Hello everyone, I would like to share with you my favourite hair straightener which in my opinion beats any top straightener out there even GHDs.

I asked my boyfriend probably over 20 times if he could buy me the Remington Pro-Ceramic Hair straightener after using my sister in law’s before a night out and fell in love with them.

The features are:

  • Wide plates
  • Even heat distribution to prevent snagging
  • Digital LCD display heat setting of up to 230 Celsius.
  • Free heat resistant pad
  • 15 second heat-up time
  • Heat ready indicator
  • Ceramic plates.
  • Width of plates 45mm, length of plates 110mm
  • 1.8m swivel cord
  • Automatic safety shut-off after 60 minutes.

 

 

 

What I love about this hair straightener:

  • The wide plates- I have medium length hair so when it comes to straightening my hair it becomes a big chore and used to take me half an hour to do. With these it takes me 10 minutes!
  • Snag free- A big peeve of mine is that most hair straighteners snag your hair, cause dryness and breakage. I find these glide through my hair and my hair has been in so much better condition since using them.
  • Free heat resistant pad- Yes I know you can buy these separately and alot of hair straighteners  do come with them but I just got too excited in getting one for free because if you are clumsy like me you end up burning your dressing table or bed without one!
  • Light weight- They may have wide plates and look a bit heavy but don’t be mistaken! These are the lightest straighteners I have used and find I don’t get achy arms any more!

So if you are looking for a new hair straightener I highly recommend you try these out you will be very surprised. They cost £50.00 but I have looked on Amazon and they are currently going for £30.89 with free delivery!

Thanks for reading

Take care

My January Favourites!

Hello everyone! I hope you all have had a good christmas!

This is my first post in what 2 months?! Thank you for being patient with me as I have had a lot on which I shall inform you guys about at a later date.

In January I have really found some great products which I have fallen in love with!

IMG_3133

The first product that I would like to talk about is the Witch Naturally Clear Gentle Ex foliating Wash. I tend to try out new skin products all the time because I like to switch up my skin care routine but I find I always come back to this one! Not only does this product keeps my spots and blackheads at bay, it leaves my skin feel smooth, soft, fresh and really clean without that horrible tight tingly feeling that some products give you! It has tiny ex foliating beads that are so gentle on your skin you barely realise they are there but you can feel them working! I love the feel and look of my skin after using it!

IMG_3134

Next up is the Radox Berry Burst Shower Cream, I was actually bought a set of Radox as a Christmas present and I found this was my favourite one! The product is so light on your skin yet creamy and smells absolutely divine! It leaves you skin feeling soft and fresh. I have found that after use I smell of this for hours but it is not too sickly or overpowering. Sweet scents are my favourite!

IMG_3135

The Herbal Essences Nourish Me Butter is the product that I have been so excited to talk about! Herbal Essences have always been my favourite hair brand and have never failed to please. I decided to try this one out as it is the only one that I haven’t used yet. First of all the conditioner smells so amazing! A bit like honey and milk and it is so creamy! I found that this product leaves my hair so smooth so shiny and tangle free which lasts until I next wash my hair. It makes me look forward to washing my hair which I have always found to be a chore!

IMG_3136

Another product which I have found myself always coming back to is the Cyclax Face & Body Cream. One of the reasons why I like this product is because it comes in a 300ml tub and only cost me 99p! Because I have oily skin I find it so difficult to find a moisturiser that doesn’t clog my pores or make my skin more greasy that it already is, this product is so light, oil free and leaves my skin matte and baby smooth. I have also found that it is brilliant to use under my eyes as well at night and really helps with my bags. Really this is a multi use product for a pittance and 10X better than the expensive brands I have previously used.

IMG_3137

If you have been following my blog for a while you will know that my favourite spot gel used to be Witch Doctor which I was so sad to find that it has been discontinued and can’t find it anywhere!! 😦 So I went out trying new spots gels again to find something that met it’s match. This is when I came across the Superdrug Deep Action Anti-Blemish Gel. I have found this product absolutely amazing at keeping my spots and cystic acne away. It cools your skin and gets rid of any irritation as well as downsizing your spots over night. It does not dry out your skin or leave any scarring which is a huge bonus for me as most spot treatments do! I know cannot leave without this product and have repurchased it 3 times already!

Lastly, again if you have been following my blog for a while I mentioned using Pearl Drops to whiten your teeth. As I was doing my tesco order I found the Pearl Drops Restore White for tea and coffee drinkers on offer. I am not a big fan of tea or coffee but I tend to drink a lot of tea through the winter to keep me warm! This has caused discolouration to my teeth. Since using this product my teeth have become so much whiter and the yellowing stains have been completely removed. My teeth are now an off white colour ! What I like about this product is that the paste has little ex foliating balls which really help to get rid of any grime and it makes your teeth feel so fresh after! The taste isn’t strong and is more spearmint which is great for me as I am really sensitive to strong toothpastes!

That’s it for my January favourites, if you have any questions feel free to comment. I try my best to reply as soon as I can.

Take care

HOW MY BLOG STARTED

Many of you will know this but I shall tell you that don’t know. For years my friend lucy has wanted me to start a blog because I have always been good with advice and tips around beauty and life but I never had the confidence to get it started but after a lot of pestering I plucked up the courage to start my own blog and here I am 3 months later, I am so glad I listened!

ADVICE FOR NEW BLOGGERS

  1. Be yourself and Post what YOU want to post.

I NOMINATE:

Make sure to check out these lovely ladies’ blogs as I enjoy them and I am sure you will too 🙂

MUA Plum Noir Nail Polish Review

Hello everyone! If you have been following me for a while you will have seen a review on the MUA Moody Mink nail polish. I was so pleased and surprised with MUA so I decided to try more nail polishes from their range.

Again I was not disappointed, the colour is so lovely and perfect for Autumn/Winter. I found it to be very long lasting and doesn’t chip, although you need two coats on. The consistency again is excellent but I found that it took longer to take this one off than the Moody Mink shade. This is probably because the colour is a lot darker and pigmented. I also used the Top Coat nail polish from the range as I wanted the colour to last as long as possible at my hands on job.

I would give this one a 9/10 and highly recommended you guys to try this polish or other polishes for the MUA range. Their products are cheap but high quality!

Superdrug Mini Haul!

Hello everybody! So I decided to make a few cheeky little purchases from Superdrug and thought I would share with you what I bought. I shall be reviewing these products if I fall in love with them or if they are absolutely terrible, so watch this space 🙂

Nair Hair Removal Cream. This is definitely a must for me as these days I am so lazy when it comes to shaving!

IMG_2308[1]

Pearl drops Pro-White. I’m actually really excited about this product, I am not really keen on the idea of using whitening strips as they can damage your teeth. £4.29

IMG_2310[1]

Make-up Revolution Highlighter. £3.00

IMG_2315[1]

Collection Pressed Powder Ivory 18. This is another product which I am excited about and I am hoping to give a good review on it. During the Autumn/Winter months I become so pale and it’s hard to find a powder which is “pale enough” for me. Hopefully this will do the job! £1.19

IMG_2314[1]

MUA Blusher Cupcake £1.00

IMG_2313[1]

B. Defined Eyebrow Kit Light. This product usually costs £9.99 but at the moment it is on offer for £4.25. It also comes with setting gel, a highlighter, an eyebrow grooming brush and an applicator to apply the product, I am so excited to use this!
