    Be kind to your face & SPF it!

    I once that applying SPF to your face was just for those sunny days, how wrong was I and even though i’m approaching the forties, its never to late to start. So be kind to your face & SPF it! I’m currently using the Sarah Chapman Insurance Skin SPF 30 but I was looking for something a little stronger. Thanks to the super talented Eilidh @addicted_to_face I picked up this SPF 50 from Heliocare from Amazon. The sun has definitely been showing its happy face and I’m hoping for more of this. I already have some pigmentation on my face and I want to grow old gracefully, so anything I…

    Yoga has improved my life and my struggle with anxiety!

    A few years ago I shared a personal part of my life, my struggle with anxiety. Its been a difficult journey and one that I continue to work on each day. Last year I had another bad episode, where I was once again broken, mentally and physically. I felt venerable, scared, isolated and lost. I am lucky enough to have a fantastic support function around me. However, when faced in these difficult times, for me it feels like no one can help. During this difficult period, I wanted to seek ways in which my recovery would became more permanent, as I knew this would lead to my emotions feeling more…

    I find myself in the last year of my 30’s with the big 4-0 only 10 months away. I had been considering whether or not having botox could be an option in the next few years. However the idea of going through with it scares the life out of me. So when Emily from Embody Nantwich (CTC Healthcare) contacted me about their Anti-Ageing Facial treatment through acupuncture, this immediately got my attention. What is it and what are the benefits? Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese treatment. Its more commonly known for backaches, migraines and in in some cases helps with fertility problems. The anti-ageing facial involves inserting fine needles through…

    Beauty Pie – I’m Hooked!

    I’ve been wanting to try Beauty Pie for a while now and for some reason (unknown to me know) I never went through with it.  Maybe it was my lack of understanding on how it works or that I was a little bit of a brand snob.  Thankfully that all changed when Hannah Martin posted on Instagram about it.  Now, not only do I absolutely love her Instagram page, stories & videos, she is so relatable and seems such a genuine & lovely person plus she’s super talented, so it was a no brainer when she broke it all down.  How does it work? First of all you chose a monthly package…

    My Holiday Outfit Shopping Treats

    With less than a week to go till week set off for our family holiday, I decided to take myself off to Cheshire Oakes for some holiday outfit shopping treats. I went a few weeks ago and took Grace and my friend but it was not meant to be. Grace was on form and pushing all limits from running out of shops like a speed of lightening along with throwing herself on the floor having numerous tantrums. I needed (scrap that I wanted) some new pieces to complete my holiday attire and the list consisted 1 x pair of shoes, 2 x swimsuits & a top or two BUT like…
