BEAUTY | Tanning mistake!

As i sit here about to write this review all that is going through my mind is the following

A. My mum is going to literally kill 
me cos i have just stained her white bath towel

2. My boyfriend will probably get a fright later 
and think i have had a nasty 
accident in my WHITE!! white, why white Sarah? Pj bottoms

D. Why did i tan before i did my henna * big white patch alert*

So as you can probably tell from the title and i hope my thoughts ( c'mon!! i stopped pooing my pants a while back now ....) this post is about all things tanning! I don't need to tell you that we seem to have lost summer cos i think we are all pretty much aware and pretty much annoyed that the sun decided to skip us this year and leaving us pale bodied females walking around. 

I only really have one holy grail product which is of course the Marissa Carter cocoa brown 1 hour tan mousse. I swear by this product ladies!! So when i run out, i was at the shop looking for my bae when i saw another product in the same brand but just a slight difference that it was Night and day instant and gradual tanner. Im sure i bought it cos it was cheaper and if you know me, you know im a tightwad and will try anything that is on offer.

The conclusion of the story is i don't like the new one and i should of just stuck to what worked best for me!

To me this newer one is waaaaay to dark for me, it feels a lot stickier and it leaves weird marks in your skin. So if you have stretch marks or on rough areas like the knees it shows up and makes it look quite clear you have tan on! Not what i want when im tanning. Also as it is an instant tan i find it washes off a lot quicker and you get watermarks so easily, so when i wash up or water splashes at me i have really big watermarks!

Anyway i will insert a before and after and also insert the photo of the new tan and my holy grail fave tan! 

If you have tried one or both these products please let me know your
thoughts, i wonder if its just me and my skin
or it happens for the majority!

Much love,




p.s. for your sake invest in a good tanning mitt
with the night and day dont wanna see the state of my
thumb! *rolls eyes*

Are you looking for a place where you can sit for hours on end without feeling like you are being eye-balled by the staff that you have over stayed your welcome?

#BEAUTY | SBC gels

One of my favourite ingredients for my skin, especially dry skin is manuka honey. So i tried out some of the honey products from the SBC Gels and havent stopped using them. They have replaced my usual products. So lets have a product break down! The manuka honey and orange blossom scrub has really fine bits in it which are very helpful for exfoliating, but as a they are super fine it is a lot more nicer to  use than some products that have the larger exfoliating bits in them!   Manuka honey & orange blossom body butter - as you have guessed by the name this is a body butter! They dont tend to be my go to product as i dont really like the consistancy. I love the smell of this, its so fragrent. After i have used the shower wash i either use this or the gel to get me some soft soft skin! These two are my favourite from the honey selection. There is the bath and shower gel (on the left) and the skincare gel . The bath and shower gel smells so strongly of hone

#TRAVEL | Liverpool

Its been a month since I visited Liverpool for the first time, its only right that I share my trip :) First of its a very friendly place, but I have come to learn that most places apart from London are....sorry London but its true.  I stayed for 2 nights and 3 days and I would say that it was enough time to explore the main parts of Liverpool and get a vibe for it. Im happy that I can now sing "ferry across the mersy" and constantly shout.. I've been there! I've been there! Its the little things that make it worth it aha Im a sucker for being near water and also in the city centre and the hotel I stayed which was called the tune hotel was the perfect walk away from the river as well as the city. A 5 min walk to the famous Cavern Club. Museums are a plenty and I visited them all! My fave being the museum of Liverpool, lots of interactive fun things to do and to learn. I would recommend taking a part of the day to go on the bus tours o
