What I Got For Christmas 2015: Lush!

31 December 2015

Hello!

I have to admit that a few months ago I really wasn't that keen on Lush. I always used to walk past and think that the smell was so overpowering and that there was no way I wanted to buy anything so my house would smell the same. How wrong I was.

After reading a few reviews, I finally took the plunge and brought my first bath bomb and now I'm completely hooked! Since my mom knows me so well, she brought me a few little gifts from there for Christmas so I thought I would share them with you!

As well a yummy bottle of Snow Fairy shower gel, she managed to pick up three Christmas bath bomb/bar; Golden Wonder, Father Christmas and the gorgeously cute Magic Wand!

Instead of talking too much about them in this post, I will be writing separate blog posts about each product giving my review so keep your eyes open for that!

Reversyl Advanced Hair Shampoo & Hair Growth Treatment Review*

30 December 2015

Hello!

One of the words that I would happily call myself is indecisive. I know I am, it's a flaw I have. I have been known to take about half an hour to decide what colour dress to buy, and then leave without buying it. I just can't help it!

Another thing that I'm quite indecisive about is my hair. As soon as I lobbed it all off, although I did love it, there was a small part of me that died a little inside. All that hair and possibilities of undoes ect was just gone! Like I said, very indecisive!

Because I was quite eager for my long hair to come back, I started using the Reversyl Follicle and Fibre shampoo and the Hair Growth spray treatment every day in an attempt to speed up my hair growing process. If you’ve not heard of Reversyl, they’re a British company who are dedicated to developing products to help those experiencing hair loss.

Obviously I’m not experiencing hair loss, but the shampoo and hair treatment duo are also brilliant for thinning hair and the formula helps condition and thicken the follicles in your hair - which helps to promote hair growth! That is my reasoning.

I’ve been using both products for nearly a month now and although I stupidly didn’t take a proper before picture to compare, I can honest say that I’ve noticed such a difference to my hair. Not only does my hair seem to have grown a few extra inches but it’s noticeably thicker and shinier. A lot more than another shampoo, serum or oil I've tried in the past. 

The shampoo is probably my fave out of the two as the smell was absolutely gorgeous! If I'm honest it did slightly remind me of men's aftershave or Lynx but I actually liked that - is that weird? The treatment spray had a very particular smell and from my nose I got the whiff of fish. Not very nice.

I was a bad beauty blogger and didn't take a proper before and after picture but to sort of give you a small idea on the change, the above before picture is a selfie that I took at the end of October with my hair being straightened and the after picture was a few weeks ago with it unstraightened. And it's around the same length, if not longer and definitely a lot thicker! So I'd say that's quite impressive!

Overall I really enjoyed using these products and I would happily fork out that bit extra to buy them both again. If you're like me and would prefer a nice thickening specialised product, then this is the brand for you! If you fancy giving it a go then you can check out the shampoo and treatment spray combo here for £34.99!

*I was sent this product to trial but my opinions are honest and my own.

What I Got For Christmas 2015!

29 December 2015

Hello!

Merry belated Christmas! 

Although a couple of weeks ago I would have said I was really not looking forward to Christmas and would be happy when it's finally over, I have to admit that when Christmas Day actually came around, I ended up enjoying it quite a bit!

I spent my Christmas Eve at work until 1pm when I left to go have dinner with the whole of my family on my dad's side and then going straight out with all my family on my mom's side which was pretty amazing and hectic! Christmas Day itself was also spent in the same kind of manner, just including a few glasses of prosecco!

I didn't really take many pictures as for once I just want to actually experience the day and not be stuck behind my phone screen. I managed to catch up with my family especially all of my younger cousins that I don't see very often and spent a majority of my Christmas holiday laughing!

Present wise I think I did quite well and there's no many different sets and products that I'm dying to talk to you guys about! I know a lot of other bloggers will be writing similar posts so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon myself and "show off" what I got for Christmas! I will be doing a few other posts/reviews of some of my presents but they will be coming in the next few weeks!

Life | A Look Back In 2015 & New Years Resolutions for 2016!

28 December 2015

Hello!

I'm not going to beat around the bush about this but the majority of my 2015 sucked. Simple. Not only did I have a lot of stress with my work but I also broke up with my boyfriend which resulted in me moving back home. It's been a nightmare!

I did however try and be positive about it all and turned the whole thing into quite an educating experience and I've also learned things about myself that I never knew before. So swings and roundabouts? I did also manage to get a new perfect job and that has made all the difference with my happiness!

But enough about 2015 and let's look to the future with 2016! Every year I make resolutions on this blog and I rarely keep them. Doesn't everyone though?! I did however only set myself the one resolution last year: to better myself. And I think that even though it took sometime and through a very shitt year, I'd like to think that I really have. So yay me!

I did however want to challenge myself a little bit more in 2016 with more resolutions and maybe even get to scratch off a few of my 30 before 30 targets! So here's to 2016!

1. Go on an adventure!

Not sure exactly what my "adventure" will be but I definitely want to do something exciting this year! Whether that's something relaxing like a spa weekend or even a trip to the beach or something a little bit crazy and "out there" like skydiving. I just want to look back and think "yeah, this year has been epic!".

2. Save some money!

Having a very low amount of money in my bank is quite common for me in 2015 so I'd love to be able to learn the art of saving! I did get a new job at the end of the year which pays a considerable amount more so I would like to think that this would make saving a lot easier!

3. Gym

Every year I always say I'm going to go to the gym more and although that works out for the first couple of months, it tends to fade off when I get bored. I did however recently lose one stone and well on my way to another to I'm hoping that that will motivate me enough to keep the gym up!

4. Be More Organised!

This year I definitely want to try and be more organised! I don't normally have a problem with time management or anything, but I find that if I have any appointments or anything with a deadline, I don't have anywhere to write it down and normally write it down on a scrap of paper. Not good!

5. Take Time Out For Myself

The main resolution and area I want to concentrate on in 2016, is getting a bit of ME time. I said I was going to do it back in 2014 and although I felt like I did, I failed to do the same in 2015. Blame it on my relationship or just that I didn't try enough but 2015 was a bit of a bad year for me and I want to work on me not getting to that dark and horrible stage in my life again. I want 2016 to be a clean fresh start for me!

What are you resolutions for 2016?

Tickled Pink Fancy Dress Kigurumi Purple Unicorn Costume*

27 December 2015

Hello!

Now that Christmas is over and done with, we now have a nice couple of days off before we start it all over again for New Years. It really is a busy couple of weeks!

The past couple of New Years have been quite quiet for me; being sick last year and just visiting family the year before, means that I haven't really had a chance to "party" and have a drink. This year is different though! I've been invited to a fancy dress house party and I have to admit that I've never been to one before. 

Luckily for me the lovely people over at Tickled Pink Fancy Dress heard my plea for something to wear and offered to send me an outfit to try! They have tonnes of different outfits and different themes to pick from and it took me forever to decide but in the end I settled on the Purple Kigurumi Unicorn costume!

As you can see from the pictures above, I'm very happy with my decision to go with this onesie. I know going to a fancy dress party in a onesie is a bit "different" but my thought process for ordering this is that not only can I say that I'm in fancy dress because I'm a UNICORN but I'll also be warm and comfy. Another bonus is I don't have to change into PJs when I roll home drunk. Practical as well as cute!

If you're attending a fancy dress party this year and you're stuck for ideas on what to be, why not go as a unicorn?! If that's not for you then check out Tickled Pink and they will definitely have your back with their huge choice of costumes! I might even make another order for myself to get the pink unicorn onesie! Start a unicorn onesie collection!

I even brought cute little matching socks from New Look just to complete the look!
