Why I suck at blogging but don’t care. The blogging world has become so heightened with competition and worry that people are doing better than you. I hate that part to this whole blogging malarkey. I started this blog 3 years ago with no idea what I was stepping into. It was a hobby that I wanted to stick my toes into without knowing the career’s blogging has given so many people. I don’t think I would ever see myself making this my career. Don’t get me wrong there are so many other sides of blogging that I love. But the constant battle of proving who you are to people, just isn’t me. And I guess that’s what makes me suck at blogging. View Post
I know you’ve probably read the title of this and thought what the hell. But I am totally obsessed with oil. In the world of beauty we are talking here not the kitchen. I love the glow and health benefits it gives to you skin, hair and nails. I quite simply just can’t give enough. If you read this post last year where I discussed how scared I use to be of oil you will be pretty surprised to know I use it every single day now. If you really can’t be bothered to go back and read that post, first who are you? second lets just shorten the story down for you. I always stuggled with super oily skin, by the end of the day my make-up had totally slid off my face and was shinning too bright. Not in a good highlighter way, in a gross fry an egg type of way. I had always stayed clear from any oil type product for any part of my body as I had decided that the cause of this awful oil was due to too much, why would I add more. A little research into oily skin later and I found out that your skin may be producing too much oil as it doesn’t have enough so produces way more than it needs. I was advised to add an oil into my skincare. Within a week it was like magic. LITERALLY! The oil had reduced so much on my skin. So I continued using oil and added a whole more into my life. Let me tell you exactly what I use and why.
One thing I have always struggled with is buying gifts for men. I always seem to buy the same socks, aftershave and chocolates year in year out for the men in my life. I say that as if I have multiple men on the go! No,no. Im talking my fiance, dad and brothers. Im all for getting them aftershave because honestly I bloody love a good smelling man. But I needed something a little different to the usual same old same old. When I was browsing the L’Occitane website for my own personal needs (woops) I came across the mens section and couldn’t believe how amazing there mens perfume L´Occitane section was! View Post
When I was invited to the Skinny Tan event down in London I was gutted I wasn’t able to attend. Living up in the north east means I miss out on a lot of events that would be an absolute dream to go to. Not only meeting so many new faces but also discovering new beauty products and other bits that could impact my life. What really makes me appreciate certain pr companies is when they are able to send over some samples even when I cant attend the event. That’s exactly what Skinny Tan did. View Post
I’m actually in shock that we are already on to the second of April, it feels like just yesterday we started 2017. Im going to be real with you all, I am still struggling to remember its 2017 when I write the date at work, and we are in April already! I thought I would change things up a little and instead of doing a monthly favourites every month, I would talk about the goals and achievements I want to achieve in the month coming. Saving for a house has meant that my favourites have pretty much stayed the same because I’m not buying new products to test out. So I thought this was something a little different for us to try. Let me know your aims for April in the comments.
