Beauty | Anatomicals

Anatomicals

I've never tried this brand before, but I'm down for trying new products and brands lately to see if I can enter a new favourite into my skincare/pamper routine.

Anatomicals

This Bergamot and Green Ginger Body Butter has turned into a firm favourite and a go too when I've come out of the shower. I have a fair few different body butters and this is the one that I go for the most! There's loads of product in this tub, it smells so refreshingly nice but not too rich of a smell. Say if you were to cover one of your legs with the body butter, you wouldn't need too much of the product as although the consistency seems quite hard, it's quite watery in a way and spreads across your kind very easily and leaves your skin feeling so smooth once it's sunk in! Definitely try this out if you spot it and love a good pamper after the shower or bath!

Anatomicals

Out of all three of the above face masks, the Purifying Charcoal Face Mask was my favourite. Just because it cleansed my pores very well and made my face feel so fresh and clean. Also, you could get 2 uses out of these little packets - great to share with your partner or friends on a pampering session! Face masks help a lot, whether you stressed, skin isn't feeling great, having a bad day, then a face mask is one of the best ways to help you relax in my eyes! Just putting a face mask on and relaxing is the best - especially in the bath!

All products mentioned are linked down below if you would like to check them out for yourself or purchase any! Let me know your thoughts if you've ever used any of these products before.

Beauty | Luvenesco Hydrating Cream

Luvenesco Hydrating Cream

I've definitely been loving skincare more and more lately! I've been trying out this Luvenesco Hydrating Cream for about 6 weeks now, and I've come to a conclusion it's about time I wrote a review up about this product.

Packaging


It's very simplistic but on the classy side. The plastic it's made out of isn't the best, but if it keeps the product fresh and how it should be, it's all good!

Luvenesco Hydrating Cream

The Product Itself


This cream feels thick but it actually goes a long way with a tiny bit of it - covers your entire face. The smell of the product is what I love most. It has a gorgeous and fresh lemon like smell to it. It's filled with shea butter though! So that's always a good thing as shea butter is definitely good for moisturising your skin. I've been trying this product out for about 6-8 weeks now I think, and I would recommend it honestly - especially if your looking for a moisturising cream that you wouldn't find on the high street then definitely give this Hydrating Cream by Luvenesco a try!

Beauty | Nutrient Wise Vitamin D3 Spray

Nutrient Wise Vitamin D3 Spray

I've been really getting into trying new things when it comes to my skincare routine. Especially with different creams, serums and sprays. So my latest addition has been this; Nutrient Wise Vitamin D3 Spray. I love anything that will help get vitamins into my system - especially within my skin.

I mainly tend to use this spray at night or during a pamper night, as I've noticed from testing out this product, I can't use it too often or it will make my skin too oily and cause spots. So to prevent them and get the full benefit from the product I tend to use it at night, mainly every two days, as like I said, if I use it too often, my skin can break out. It definitely has been helping my skin, as you know when there's some kind of change in the way your skin looks. My skin just looks so much more healthy - must be the vitamins!

Nutrient Wise Vitamin D3 Spray

As for the packaging, colourful and eye catching, but the only problem I have with the product is the spray pump, it only sprays it out in one go, not like a spritzer action. I'd prefer to spray it over my face, but as you can't as you'll end up like I did when I first tried it hahaa! That's the only issue.

Oh! I forget to mention, it actually has a menthol like smell to the serum that's so refreshing! I love the smell of it! Don't worry, it doesn't make your face smell funny hahaa!

Nutrient Wise Vitamin D3 Spray

Have you tried this vitamin spray or anything similar?

Lifestyle | What Happened In December


Well, December started off with me and the girls heading to the NEC for the World Duty Free shopping event, then heading into Birmingham for a bit of shopping and pizza. That same day I went out for my friends 30th Birthday and had a night out - December was full of different nights out! I put up an 8ft Christmas tree all by myself!

I had a few driving lessons which I'm quite enjoying! I also met George for a couple of drinks, a KFC and a well needed catch up! You can watch the vlog from that weekend here.

During December I was getting to grips with my new Admin job that I'm really enjoying! As I mentioned before, I had a lot pf nights out, so I had a night out filled with prosecco, donuts, curry, photo booths and lots of dancing with all the girls from my old workplace which was really nice to have that last reunion with them all!

I had a very christmassy, but lovely weekend with my friends that included; ice skating, a Christmas meal that included prosecco (of course), tomato and balsamic vinegar soup with ciabatta bread, roast turkey dinner with all the trimmings and a terry's chocolate orange sundae to finish! SO GOOD!! During this meal, me and the girls all opened and exchanged our gifts we brought each other - like a mini Christmas day for us all. My favourite annual thing to do at Christmas is our Christmas meal and exchange gifts around good food and company. You can also watch the vlog from this as well here.

The next weekend was followed by 2 house parties and going down the town, a very eventful night I'll tell you that!

During Christmas we actually spent it up the coast for a change, which was lovely - I also finally got to take Pepsi to the beach which I was SO happy about as he'd never been before! So that made my Christmas! Family time at Christmas is so important to me, but I don't care where we are for Christmas, as long as we're all together! I made a gingerbread house on Christmas day as well! See my What I Got For Christmas video here.

To end December, I went up to Liverpool for my friends 23rd birthday and we had a night out there and drank lots of prosecco...We did a lot of shopping too! So I'll definitely film a haul on what I got in Liverpool at some point. To end December, I went out on New Years Eve and had one of the best nights out I've had in a long time! So fun!!

So that's the last of whats happened during 2017! Here's to what happens in the months of 2018! Have a great new year lovelies!

Lifestyle | New Year Goals 2018


Happy New Year everyone! This is something I do every year now. Goals I want to achieve throughout the year, so let's see what I've got in mind...

Pass my theory & practical driving test


I'm more determined than ever to get on the road and learn to drive, and have that essential freedom I need! I'm quite enjoying driving at the minute and I'm just itching to just get my own car and get on the road!

Save money


By this I don't mean stop spending, I just want to save even more money than before, as it's always good to have that extra bit of money as a back up, as you never know what could happen.

Travel


I mainly want to travel to Ireland and somewhere hot, like Santorini or Portugal. I would like to visit Ireland for my 21st birthday and meet up with the lovely Shauna Claire! I'm dying to go and see giants causeway and have a night out in the Irish pubs - as I am half Irish after all.

Eat Healthier


See, I've had more of a balanced diet, but then I munch/binge away at junk food I don't need to eat. I just keep eating so much! Must be having a growth spurt hahaa! Or I just really like food - of course ;) 

Home exercises


See I want to make time for this now as I use to love going the gym and that feeling of exhaustion, but feeling really good about it - I really want that again, as I love working out and feeling better within my body.

Read more books


Once I've got my theory test out the way, I can read to my hearts content, but I've got so many books I want to read and sat in my drawers next to my bed. Its also finding the time too.

Film more videos


I normally always have a video up every Sunday at 5pm on my YouTube channel, but I want to just film loads more videos. Like, trying American candy, the whisper challenge part 2, the best friend tag - I honestly have a fair few ideas, I just need the time to film!

Live life how I want to and not let anyone get in the way of my own happiness


As 2017 was full of this and I'm taking a stand and doing what makes me happy. Never do something your not happy with, or be with someone your not happy with. You will only feel miserable, when there is no point, because you are the person in charge of your own happiness, so take charge and make your life how you want it!

Hope you liked this post! What's your new year goals or resolutions etc.?

Lifestyle | 2017 Goals Recap


Happy New Year Everyone! I've decided to start the year off with a recap post on the goals I set myself for 2017 and what I did and didn't achieve. There will be a follow up post soon of my goals for 2018 which are slightly different to the goals I normally set myself.

Spending more quality time with loved ones


As I've had a lot of hard times this year, I've had to go through and learn a lot from what's happened. So quality time with the ones I love has happened as much as possible this year!

Think before I speak


Which I have and haven't achieved, as in some cases I've had to be brutally honest as of certain circumstances. So I know how and when to use this tactic. So it's a win win with this goal, because I've been put in situations where I make myself confident enough to be heard if I don't agree with something.

Use what I already have


I have and haven't been doing this throughout the year. So I've kind of achieved this. Mainly food, make up and (sort of) clothes in this cases.

Put more commitment into my blog & YouTube & stay organised with it


I've actually surprised myself on how well I've kept my content so updated throughout the year! With it being 2x blog posts and 1x video uploaded almost every week! By the way, I upload a new blog post every Monday & Thursday, as well as a video every Sunday at 5pm.

Experiment more


I've actually experimented quite a lot with my make up this year! With trying new make up, new styles in fashion as well as interior! I've loved doing this so I will definitely keep switching things up every now and again!

Grow stronger as a person


I have definitely achieved this big time! I've had some issues thrown at me this year, and they've only made me get back up and be a bigger, stronger and better person than I was before.

Be more creative


This goes hand in hand with experimenting more.

Save even more money


I've been on and off with this all year, but I have managed to save some money throughout 2017.

New diet & exercising plan


I started going the gym in January and loved it! But I stopped going in June as I moved area and the gym wasn't very close by. So I've hardly exercised except for doing loads of walking and dancing in the nightclub every weekend of December hahaa! My diet on the other hand isn't too bad, as I try not to eat too much greasy/oily foods as they just make me feel ill. So cutting out that sort of food really helps with how my body and mind feels.

My bucket list for the year was hardly achieved, the ones I achieved were:

  • Get a new job - which is in admin, which I'm SO happy about!
  • Switch up my hairstyle - which I chose to go light blonde which I just love!
So out of 10 changes, I've achieved 8 and a half! Then as for my bucket list, I've achieved only 3/4 out of 10! Let's hope I can achieve more in 2018, but I've achieved a lot either way during 2017.

Hope you enjoyed reading this post. What did you achieved throughout 2017?

Lifestyle | Lounging In Upbra Lingerie

UpBraUpBra

You may of heard about UpBra before on my blog if your a long term reader. You can see that post here. I was quite unsure about trying their bra's again, as of my past experience with them before. They just weren't comfortable. But they've brought out a new range, so I decided to try it out and see if they've change their design to be more comfortable and fitting.

UpBra
UpBra

I went for a nude coloured t-shirt UpBra bra as well as the one in black. I don't know why, but the black one fitted better than the nude one? I put the pull straps in the exact same places as each other on both bras, but the black looked and fitted better, as you can see by the pictures. They certainly flatter your chest area that's for sure!

UpBra
UpBra

I'd wear these bra's for special occasions though, as they aren't like normal bra's you just throw in the washing machine, they can't be crushed or folded either or their design and shape will be ruined. Something to think about if your thinking about investing a bra from UpBra.

UpBra
UpBra

As for my thoughts on everyday wear on these bras, I've given them a proper test. I wore the black one to work. So it had a full test on my day to day work like and I completely forgot I was wearing it, I was honestly that comfortable! I'm so shocked at how well they've changed the comfort design of this bra! The t-shirt bra's seem to be the most comfortable ones! The UpBra's also complement your chests so nicely and give them that little boost if you need it to lift them up. 

As for the nude bra, it seems to fit not as nice as the black. Same with comfort its fine except I had to readjust it a few times during the day, but it wasn't too uncomfortable! Quite alright to be honest! Out of the two, even those the design may be the same etc. I would recommend the black more than the nude bra. Plus black goes with everything anyway!

Fashion | My New Favourite Jewelry Brand

Jeulia Ring
Jeulia Ring

Have you ever seen a more beautiful ring?! I honestly just love Jeulia Jewellery ring designs! They have to be my favourite jewellery brand going! I love wearing their rings, as they fit perfectly, the designs are flawless (as you can tell by the photos I took), they are just so stunning and photogenic! I may love this ring a bit too much hehee!

Jeulia Ring
Jeulia Ring

Honestly though, if this was a choice for an engagement ring (which it is part of their engagement ring section) this would be PERFECT! The thing that caught my eye about this ring the most is, the attention to detail the designers clearly had for this stunning piece. The heart shape crystal underneath the larger crystal is such a nice touch and adds that different look. Next to the tiny gold details running round the ring is just beautiful. Even the crystals placed around the ring just add to the beauty of the design. Can you tell I'm literally in love with this ring?

Jeulia Ring
Jeulia Ring

Rings have always been my favourite accessories when it comes to jewellery. I've never really been one for bracelets or necklaces that much, I do where them, but very rarely, I'm more for watches and rings more than anything else. I definitely will be getting my wear out of this beauty! Heard about this brand before on my blog? Read my last review on Jeulia Jewellery here. I definitely recommend checking out their site for a little nosey! They sell necklaces, earrings, bracelets and even men's accessories as well as their stunning rings! Perfect for Christmas Gifts!!

Beauty | The Charcoal Face Mask You Need To Try

7th Heaven Charcoal Peel Off Mask

I love anything to do with Charcoal as it's so good in products like toothpaste, hair products and especially skincare. So when 7th Heaven released their Charcoal Peel-Off masks, I obviously was going to try them out, as I get fascinated by the charcoal nose strips you can get and what they can pull out of your face!

So, first impressions. The consistency of the mask is quite runny, but thick at the same time. So there's plenty of product to go all over your face - twice if you wanted to!

7th Heaven Charcoal Peel Off Mask

It takes quite a while for it to dry though is the thing I found quite annoying. It takes 20-25 minutes but if you want your full face mask to dry, it's at least a 30 - 40 minute wait. It's alright if your having a pamper night etc. But I'm impatient as it is, so it's just too long for me, but the results are pretty good! Seeing as the pores on my nose gets quite clogged up, it certainly sorted out the majority of that and around my chin!

These masks are definitely great for a girls night in or a little treat to yourself when you are having a relaxing evening and pamper yourself, as we all know, we deserve to treat ourselves and look after our skin and bodies.

7th Heaven Charcoal Peel Off Mask

Definitely try this mask out and pick it up if you see it! Worth a try for sure! Especially for those with clogged pores in their skin.

Have you tried out 7th Heaven masks before?
