    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…

    My Anxiety Struggles

    As we come to the end of another week of raising awareness for Mental Health, it shouldn’t stop there and we should continue to talk about it.  It’s taken me years to pluck up the courage to write this post but I’m now happy to share my experiences and how I cope with what was once described as my demons. Here’s my story… I’ve struggling with anxiety and panic attacks for 10 years plus. I am now in a place where I’m better at controlling them. I recognise the signs & triggers which then allow me to start putting the relevant steps into place. For as long as I can…

    Wild Flowers & Weeds, the new scents from Jo Malone

    Jo Malone has released a limited new collection of scents and this time it’s inspired by the unruly weeds and wildly-wonderful plants and flowers that line the banks of a winding river (says the lady herself). I sampled these little gems in their Chester store before they went live online and instantly fell in love which let’s face it isn’t that hard, wish I could drape myself in all things Jo Malone, head to toe! Here’s a run down of the ones I fell for… Willow & Amber – The expressive weeping willow, gently draping across the fresh morning water. Captured in the woody pairing of cashmere wood and smoky…

    Omorovicza Elemental Emulsion Moisturiser |Full Review

    Before February this year I had never even heard of Omorovicza.  Thanks to MINTD box (the Spring Clean edition), I was able to try the Omorovicza Elemental Emulsion.  My skin type is combi to oily and I am prone to breakouts each month but after trying various lotions and potions over the years, I’ve now found the best type of moisturiser for me is a light, oil-free lotion that both hydrates and helps control shine and this little treasure does exactly that.  Thanks to its thin, milky texture, not only do I need very little to apply but within seconds its soaked in and appears grease and silicone-free whilst leaving my…
