WEEK 1 - what i got

Let my lay down the scene with my breakfast routine for you guys, so im a big lover of croissants and crumpets just because they are quick and easy if you start work at 5AM like me. When i have a bit more time im a real granola girl, i love the texture of it and the taste. although i love granola im not a huge huge lover of lots of nuts and seeds. I actually tried the mornflake granola and loved it but im just not overkeen on having nuts and seeds in every mouthful, so if youre a real nut lover then this is for sure yours! It is high in fibre and made with oatbran to help lower cholesterol. *thumbs up*

As for the oats, they are so scrummy. I dont think you can live in a house and not have oats laying around somewhere in the cupboard. What makes these different is that they are organic, i dont know about you but if i eat something organic i feel a lot more healthier afterwards?! i think its just a placebo effect type -o- thing for me haha

I have yet to have found a morning drink to replace my tea! I am such a tea lover that i just cant replace it, yes, i have tried green tea. HEALTHIER? are you kidding me?! i cant drink it unless it has 10 heaped tspns of sugar or honey in it :( so if you know any healthier drinks, hot or cold that you drink in the morning please comment below.

Im a big moisturiser girl, i dont think i feel right if i put makeup on before i moisturise ( is that just me ??) so im glad i have 2 new additions to my little moisturiser family now :)
Loreal revitalift, im not gonna lie i tried this one as soon as i opened the box because i connected with the brand. It is a well known brand across the world and i also have trust in the brand as i have used it before. Regarding olehenriksen , im sorry to say i have never heard of this before.

The loreal eye cream is great for brightening up the eye area and to also make it feel lifted, even though im not at an age where i should be worrying about my eyes i did actually feel a lot better about my eye area after applying the cream. It smells wonderful and it doesnt feel cloggy or thick in anyway!

Olehenriksen on the other hand is not really my cup of tea. It also has a thin feel when you apply it to the skin which to me is a huge factor, i cant stand feeling anything on my face. The only thing with this that i didnt like was the smell, it is a herbal creme so i would expect some kind of smells but im not really a citrus-y lover and all i smelt was strong citrus smells. For me its such a shame becuase it as a product has so many benefits including SPF 20 and anti-oxidents. Im not going to give up trying the creme though! If the results are good then a little sacrifice is in order ;)





dont forget to enter the competition

#TRAVEL | A cafe with positive vibes in London? ...Age Exchange

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?

Well look no further than this little place in the South East of London; in the heart of Blackheath there is Age Exchange! https://www.age-exchange.org.uk/ Whether is for a spot of lunch, a coffee with a friend, a place to get your work done or even just a home from home, say hello to Age Exchange.  The home of Reminiscence, this dementia arts charity has it all.

#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
