2017 Goals

Hello everyone!

I've been meaning to write this for a little while....all month if I'm honest but January has been a bit crazy for many reasons. Work has been the busiest it has ever been in my whole 2.5 years there and I've been out to Barcelona for a week, and my dad has been into hospital for many stressful and invasive tests that luckily were clear. That combined with the general start-of-the-year fitness and diet routines and I've spent my month being the 'exhausted pigeon' flapping around aimlessly not knowing where to go next or indeed what I was doing 2 minutes ago.

Hey all 
Long time no post from me. Life has been a little hectic lately and I’ve just not found the time to write. I’ve got so many posts I want to write but decided to start with the  Freedom ProArtist pro lipstick palette as there are two up for grabs in our birthday giveaway (post here).

Miss Patisserie Coco Body Butter

Happy Sunday morning!

I don't know about you but I always try and fit in a bath and a pamper over a weekend. It doesn't happen all the time (I probably end up having a bath once a month...) but if not I try and make time for a face mask, nails and full body moisturisation. I'm quite lazy at moisturising...I think a lot of people are but when I do get my act together my skin feels amazing so I should definitely do it more often.

One of my current favourite body butters is the Coco one from Miss Patisserie. This came in a gift set called the Dotty Box, it was £25 but sadly i can't see it on the website any more. It contained a really good variety of products similar to the Pink and Mint box but in the Coral Bay and Coco scents. I've loved it so I really hope it makes a reappearance!

Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Hello everyone!

I have written a few things about some products from Kiehl's recently, I wrote about the original event (click here) and also the Daily Reviving Concentrate (click here)

As well as this I have been using the Midnight Recovery Concentrate which I'm sure you have heard of before, it is pretty famous around the world for its hydrating properties as well as reaching the 'blogger hype' status because everyone loves it. So what did I think??

Blogger Secret Santa

Hey All

Long time no post from me. With Christmas and trying to write up some stuff for work, I've been rushed off my feet. Hope everyone had amazing Christmases. I've been meaning to write this for ages. When I saw Serena from Pretty Wild Things was arranging a secret santa I decided to get involved. I've not done something like this before and thought it would be fun!

Sarah From Jester Joker Fool was buying for me and absolutely spoilt me! I've never tried any Asian beauty products but have heard so much about loads of brands so I was so excited to open it up!

Temple Spa Treatments at the Vale Resort and Spa

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I had the pleasure of attending the infamous Vale Resort Spa* last week to try out one of their new facials launching this month.

If you don't know much about the Vale Resort .....where on earth have you been?!

The resort contains a four star hotel with conference facilities, restaurants, champagne bars, award winning golf course, leisure, spa and sports facilities. I can reassure you that if it is good enough for the Welsh rugby team, Cardiff Blues, Welsh football team and Cardiff City FC on a regular basis plus Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool it is certainly good enough for me!

The spa contains the largest spa in Wales and offers more than 50 different traditional and holistic treatments - it is absolutely huge! There are 19 treatment rooms and 6 bespoke relaxation zones with various names and purposes, I'll talk more about these later on. The facilities also include a 20m pool, whirlpool bath, sauna and steam room plus state of the art gym, fitness studios and squash and tennis courts.

MUA Luxe Enrapture Palette


I don't know about you but the endless stream of amazing palette releases have totally rinsed my bank account. There are some beautiful collections available froma variety of brands and I need them all in my life!

One of the palettes that caught my eye before Christmas was the MUA Luxe Enrapture palette, it's a darker and more sultry version on the Enchanted palette (click here to read my review on this one) and I knew I needed it for a variety of reasons.

Life Update

Hey all!

So my blog posts over the Christmas break did not go to plan - a lot of my family have been ill so I was helping with lots of the food etc and then unfortunately I have got the dreaded flu myself! So lots of sleeping, lemon and honey, and trashy tv has been my plan over the last few days.

The cold part hasn't been too bad but the aches I just hate! The weirdest thing is that it was all in my hands and elbows so typing just wasn't possible - sooo I'm a little behind with my festive posts particularly a recap of 2016 and goals for 2017. I'm hoping to get them up this week!

Without further rambling here are some more pictures of my Christmas break including some of the lovely presents. I didn't take any pictures of all my presents together, I actually didn't get any make up this year and although all of my presents were lovely they consisted of a lot of pyjamas, socks and kitchen items!
