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.

Spring is finally here and summer is hopefully on its way. Which means one thing for us girls. Well certainly for me. You’ve gotta start shaving those legs again. I mean only if you think there may be a possibility your gunna be flashing your legs. If your anything like me then during the darker months your legs are the last thing to get any attention so they stay hairy. Ive only just realised how much I hate the word hairy, how gross. Anyway. When Dorco Razors got in touch to see if I wanted to try out their Dorco Eve razor I said yes, well because it was getting to the point where I really needed to remove the nasty hairs that where growing  away on my legs.

One of the main things I have always wanted is to have healthy, glowing skin. You know when you look at your skin in a mirror and you just think, what one earth have I been doing wrong! I’ve done it so many times that I finally told myself enough is enough. Its time to do some research. I whipped out my best looking notebook, opened up my laptop and got my research cap on. A few things really jumped out at me, things that I’d never really thought of before. I suppose things that kinda shocked me.

Cleaning my make-up brushes is one of the biggest chores for me in the whole world. There is nothing more I hate than washing my brushes. Its probably because I let them all get full of make-up before I decide it’s time to get them washed, if I washed a few at a time, when they where ready I probably wouldn’t hate it as much. When you think about it, there must be so much bacteria on the brushes and your then just moving all that bacteria round your face. It really is gross! I have told myself that I have to wash them when they need doing, and at least once or twice a month, depending which brush it is.

One for the diet is cutting down on dairy, I actually want to cut down on dairy for my weight loss challenge anyway. But if it is going to help my skin look super healthy and glowing I’m all for it. Diary contains cow hormones that can trigger oil production in the body, this is 100% something I suffer from which causes pimples on my face. Try to use alternatives, for example I use almond milk instead of cows milks, or use dairy free cheese. If its going to help my skin I’m all for it.

My last tip for healthy skin is real cleansing. I hold my hand up and say that 9 times out of 10 I use a makeup and only a make-up wipe to remove my makeup. Its super simple and easy. But it doesn’t remove all my makeup, the amount of times I have gone to use my toner and when I remove the cotton pad from my face there are still traces of foundation on my skin is actually disgusting. To make cleansing a little more fun and interesting I have been looking for the best cleansing brush to use on a daily basis. Preferably one that I can use morning and night that wont irritate my skin. After lots of research the one I am super excited to use is the Panasonic electric facial brush. Its a little out of my price range whilst I am saving so I am saving up any extra bits of cash I get to get this beauty! This comes with a few different settings which helps to keep your skin healthy. To start with you use a heat setting which gently melts away the make-up that is on you face, there are two heat settings for this. The brush head itself has a micro foam technology which creates a finer foam than it would by hand. This helps to break down any makeup that is still on the skin. The long fine bristles allow any deep dirt to be removed. The facial brush also has a smaller brush, which is specialised for your T Zone helping to focus on your pores. This should be used once or twice a week, to really deep cleanse your pores. And not to forget how beautiful this brush looks, sleek white and rose gold accents looks stunning. I am far too excited to get saved up enough till I can be the proud owner of this beauty!
