Wedding Skincare Routine

I’ve never really been the obsessive type over skin care and beauty routines until the start of the year. I remember seeing a picture of someone bridal makeup on Pinterest and thinking about how their skin glowed and looked blemish free. I suddenly had a mini panic that my skin would be crap for the big day, that it would be covered in breakouts and dried out. Thats when I decided enough was enough and it was time to get myself in order. I have 5 main products that I try to use daily: (1)Firstly, I use the Nivea Gentle Exfoliating Scrub after my beautician told me that for scrubs it doesn’t need to be expensive as all your really needing it the grains within it.So, I picked up one that was on offer at Asda. As much as you want to take care of your skin, you don’t want to damage it either by using abrasive products more than you need to. Scrubs are great for removing dead skin and dirt from deep in …

EyeWake: Collagen Eye Gel*

To cut a long story short, I work 41 hours a week in the dental practice, try to blog, workout & run a household, so you won’t be surprised when I tell you that I suffer from horrible dark bags under my eyes. I fill my days with coffee to tackle stress and fatigue, but I always forgot how damaging it is on my skin, especially around my eyes. So when EyeWake contacted me to try their new Collagen Eye Gel, I jumped at the chance. They are currently available from Amazon for less than £15 at the moment, but I have been told that the price of the product will be rising to approx £35. It is advertised as an ‘Anti-fatigue’ gel to help combat dark circles, puffy eyes and unwanted wrinkles. When it arrived, I couldn’t help but be slightly disappointed in the basic packaging. However, as long as it says what it does then I shouldn’t be bothered, right? When I buy skin products I am super conscious of the Ingredients. Skin …

Casual Saturday: Fashion Post

Hi All! 2018 is finally here and I have started off as I mean to go on; committing myself to this blog. This is my first fashion post (& maybe the last) and I am very apprehensive about it. I never knew how awkward it is to pose for some outfit pictures and my hat goes off to people who make it look so easy and natural! My style can go from one extreme to the other, depending on how I am feeling. One day it might be jeans, tee and converse and the next Ive got a cute skirt on and heels. Today, was in between. Some of the things I am wearing are from last season (Ooops!), but I have tagged the link to similar items from the same retailers to create the same look. I don’t think you can ever go wrong with jeans and a jumper, but today I felt like being a bit more fancy. I paired this simple outfit with a pair of heeled tan boots and cosy suede …

Friday Night is Pamper Night 

Hi all! It’s Friday and what better night of the week to chill out and have a little ‘me time’ . Being in a relationship, working full time or studying full time, whatever takes up your week, it’s time to let it go for a night. So, to kirk start the weekend I’ve decided to share my top tips to the ultimate pamper night!   1. Bubble Bath Every night should start with a bubble bath! If  your thinking “baths are so boring” well, I can’t exactly blame you! I’ve had many occasions where the idea of a big bubble bath is better than the reality. But, I have some tips to help! Try taking a book or listening to your headphones ( just don’t drop anything in the water!!! ). It’s amazing how time passes when you have something to preoccupy your mind. Next, you have to have the right bubble bath cream. If like me, you have a box full of bath accessories that you get for birthdays and Christmas then this is …
