Freeman Feeling Beautiful Facial Clay Mask Avocado & Oatmeal 04/11/2015

Didn't work for me :(

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Facial Clay Mask Avocado & Oatmeal I’ve been rather unwell of late, having a rather rough head cold which has really played my asthma up. Been wrapped in bed past few days and feeling a bit unclean as colds make you do I’ve decided it is face mask time! Freeman – Feeling Beautiful Avocado & Oatmeal Facial Clay Mask: ‘Nourish and purify with one amazing mask! Rich clays dive deep to purge dirt and oils from pores. Nutrient-rich Vitamin E, Avocado and Oatmeal moisturise for lasting skin softness. Skin looks and feels squeaky clean and is soft to the touch. Perfect for normal to combination skin’ - My Findings: I’ve always enjoyed using face masks, I have a few regular ones that I use but I like trying new ones from time to time. Freeman face masks are a newish brand for me just discovering them a couple of months back in my local Tesco supermarket. As feeling rather rough from my head cold I went with a deep cleansing mask just to perk myself up some. Like most masks first off you need to cleanse your face once done you’re ready to apply the product to your face. I wasn’t really sure what to expect fragrance wise, maybe cereal like? However I’m not overlay keen on the scent. It does have a refreshing clean fragrance but it kind of reminds me of a cleaning product my Nan used to use. A note, using a head band works best, getting clay mask in your hair is never pleasant. The mask is a normal medium consistency for a clay mask and has a pale ...

New Look Wide Fit Platform Court Shoes 06/10/2015

Comfy Courts

New Look Wide Fit Platform Court Shoes I’ve reviewed a few of the items I recently purchased for a friend’s wedding, guess it is only right to review the shoes too! New Look Wide Fit Black Platform Court Shoes – My Findings: As my dress was black and white I just wanted plain black shoes with a little heal. I have to try and get wide fit shoes as problems with my knees has caused me to become flat footed, so a wider fit makes for more comfort for me. If I was going to be standing on and off for the day comfortable footwear is a must. While I was looking for my Clutch bag (previously reviewed) I spotted these wide fit court shoes. I gave them a try and surprisingly found them rather comfortable. The heel was decent, however for a person whom hardly wears heals would find these a little high. I do love my heels so kind of in the middle for hight really for me. The heels measure four inches (10cm), heel is thick but not overlay chucky which is good as I find thin heels wear much faster. The shoe has a slight padded feel which makes it that bit more comfortable when wearing. First time I wore these shoes I was in them for around ten hours and my feet still felt fine. I am used to wearing heels pretty much all day long as it is. But normally around the end of the working day some pairs I just can’t wait to get off, as my feet are getting sore, however I had no issues with these. I use them most days for work now as I like how they feel. Material when feeling is soft but sturdy, they have a suede look to them, ...

Neutrogena Nourishing Body Lotion 21/09/2015

Nordic Berry Skin

Neutrogena Nourishing Body Lotion Over the past few years I seems to get dry skin from time to time, some occasions worse than others. I do like to look after my skin so I like to try different products and find out what works for my skin. Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Nordic Berry Body Lotion – ‘Nourishing body lotion with Nordic Berry is clinically proven to work with your skin's natural processes and enhance its hydration by 50%* to transform dry skin into soft nourished skin every day’ - My Findings: I managed to get quite a few sample sachets of this body lotion, I do like to try before I buy so to speak as over the years I’ve had many products I have paid a lot for that I have been rather disappointed with. So if I can find some freebies or cheaper sachets to try first I normally do so as I feel this is more cost effective. The product directions is to apply daily and ideally after a bath or shower. So the sachets I have are only 6ml so it took a few for moisturise over my body. That said a little surely goes a long way I have around four sachets left and once I have used up my other moisturisers I have, I will certainly be out to purchase a large bottle of this. Applying this to my skin after showering my skin pretty much straight away felt different. It was easy absorbed and didn’t leave my skin feeling oily or greasy as some moisturisers had done over the years. This lotion is medium consistency, ...

New Look Twist Lock Clutch 17/09/2015

Stylish Clutch from New Look

New Look Twist Lock Clutch As in my previous review I spoke of attending a wedding, which I got my dress, well it was only fitting I purchased a new bag to match also. New Look – Black Twist Lock Clutch Bag: My Findings: Being that my dress was white and black I was looking for a black clutch bag, not to small though as I would need to carry a few items. Then my partner normally ends up sticking his phone and wallet in my bag too! I ventured to New Look as they normally have decent bags for reasonable prices. Just wanted to mention I popped along to the Dudley store of the West Midlands and the staff were amazing, very helpful with cheerful attitudes, full recommended. The black twist lock clutch bag is on the larger side of clutch bags, which for me is great as I like good sized bags. I’m female after all! We have our needs, normally chocolate. The bag feels very sturdy, certainly feels higher quality than the price I paid. To open the bag you just twist the front lock and the bag opens up. Inside you have a small zip compartment, great for money storage if you didn’t fancy carrying a purse also. Inside the bag is wide and deep and I fitted – My purse, perfume, make up (just some top up items) my phone and my partners phone and wallet! So plenty of space but without being a full large bag. It looks smart great for casual and smart occasions. Even though the bag is all black there are some detailing to the clutch the lips around the bag has like a snake skin kind of look, then some stitching ...

Rockabella Star Board Dress 10/09/2015

My Rockabella Dress

Rockabella Star Board Dress I do enjoy when I can dress up, after all I’m female, not a girly girly so to speak… but dress up time is always fun! My taste is alternative, I love my items to just have a somewhat of a little difference to the norm. Rockabella Star Board Dress: ‘This vintage dress featuring a stripe top and black skirt anchor details’ - My Findings: As I had a wedding to attend I clearly needed a new dress, well shoes and bag and well the list goes on. I’m not the normal trend follower and wanted a dress I knew I will wear to other occasions too. I browsed one of my favourite sites first (which I have reviewed – Little Bootek) Luckily I wasn’t searching long until I found the perfect one for me. Rockabella Star Board dress, I think what set the deal for me was the cute detail on the buttons. Each button has a small anchor motif which really makes the dress. This dress is knee length which I felt was more suitable for the event I picked it for. In sizing I feel this dress is very generous and can easily get away with a size smaller. Trying this dress on for the first time it felt amazing, lovely and soft over my skin. A little warmth to it but also light. I didn’t notice at the time of ordering, that the front of the dress has two pockets. Now if I spotted this at the time I wouldn’t have made that purchase. As I think pockets around the stomach area can be unflattering on me. This time I was very pleasantly surprised as ...

Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey Peel Off 20/08/2015

The Simpsons Mask

Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey Peel Off Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey Peel Off ‘Busy Bees have collected nectar from the Manuka Bushes of New Zealand creating Manuka Honey - a natural anti-bacterial cleanser. They source pollen & we add the flower power of fragrant Jasmine’ - My Findings: Over the many years I have been reviewing I have reviewed many face masks, one of my favourite brands has to be Montagne Jeunesse. Due to the massive range they seem to have and for pretty much every skin type going. Browsing the face mask section I came across one I haven’t tried before! Shock! Horror! So of course it soon ended up in my shopping basket. As standard with face masks before use you need to cleanse your skin, once this is complete it is at last time for the messy part and messy it sure is! Soon as I ripped the sachet open you are hit with the fragrance of honey, rather strong too. This is certainly not one for the honey haters out there. On the packet it is advised to relax for the next twenty to twenty five minutes for the mask to dry ready to be peeled off. Placing the product on my face it was a little on the running side, even though the sachet was on the cold side. There was just enough to cover my whole face and a little down my neck. The mask has a yellow tone to it, so yes it looked like I was auditioning for a role in the Simpsons. However at the time the house to myself, no on lookers so the coast was clear. For me it took a little longer for the product to dry on my face in ...

What is your favourite song of all time and why does it mean so much to you ? 06/05/2015

A Favourite from Pink

What is your favourite song of all time and why does it mean so much to you ? My favourite song of the moment and what it means to me. Music is a large part of my life, my father being a DJ I was brought up on music and my range is from northern soul / motown to heavy metal. I like mainstream bands but I also like to go and listen to local bands which I feel is so underrated, would love to see people supporting there locals. To pick a favourite is certainly hard as I’m sure most will be the same as it goes on the current mood you are in. Some of you may know why I haven’t been so active of late, I’ve been studying hard and I’m a few weeks away from becoming a counsellor. So I’m going to pick the song I used for my class journal. Pink – Perfect: Who is Pink? Alecia Beth Moore born 1979, an American singer starting her singer career in 1995 with a girl group which didn’t really take off. I’m guessing as Pink is a true solo star she doesn’t need the back up. In 2000 her first album hit the UK and where I became hooked, she was different had an edge which that is what I like people whom think outside the box and are not afraid to be different. Pink is a singer I love she doesn’t follow the normal bimbo singer which comes across in her vocals. Perfect is a great example, telling us – you know what? So we have made mistakes. Who hasn’t? But that is alright as we are perfect in our own way. Which some people just don’t feel, I believe this songs just gives you that reinforcement of ‘yes, you are perfect’. This song for me is a great pick me up as at ... 27/04/2015

Perfect Place for shopping! So who doesn’t like a bit of fun online shopping now and then! I know I do and well I am picky about the websites I use. I’ve came across an awesome page which the world needs to be informed about! Little Booteek: ‘Little Booteek is the place to find alternative clothing and accessories at a reasonable price. Our customer care is first priority we are here to ensure a happy pleasant shopping experience’ - My Findings: My clothe taste is on the alternative side always has been really from a young age, it just appealed to me more than anything else. Nowadays you have so much choice but they can be rather expensive to purchase. So early last year sometime I came across this brilliant site which was shared on a friends Facebook page, not only did it have the styles I love but the prices were great compared to some other alternative sites. The look of the website is fun and inviting, easy layout leaving you easy to navigate through there luxurious items. The site is broken down into sections again making it easier for us to use, at the start you have the home page, and this shows you latest offers, always worth looking at first. Then Women tab which opens up into serval sections tops, dresses, etc. Men’s again broken into sections, Accessories which consists of bags, purses, and wallets etc, Shoes! Which are out of this world! Next tab is about LB Awesomeness Card which is a loyalty card, you earn point when purchasing from the website. Which earns ...

Superdrug 2 In 1 Hand & Nail Cream 26/04/2015

Let down from Superdrug

Superdrug 2 In 1 Hand & Nail Cream Been a while since my last review but I am here to explain what I think of this hand cream from Superdrug. A dislike that has prompted me to write a review!! Superdrug Hand Cream 2 In 1, strengthens nails and moisturises hand: ‘This Superdrug Hand & Nail Cream, enriched with Pro-Vitamin B5 and Sweet Almond Oil, is specially formulated to nourish and moisturise hands, whilst helping to strengthen nails and smooth cuticles. Used regularly, it will help to protect nails from splitting, flaking and breaking. The non-greasy formula is quickly absorbed, leaving hands feeling soft and supple.’ - My Findings: I’m not all that sure why but of late my hands have been getting very dry, which made me go on the lookout for some hand cream. Superdrug is right next door to my work so there I popped, there is a huge selection of creams, however I have tried many Superdrug own items in the past and found them as good as or better than a leading brand. So I didn’t hesitate in purchasing one of their products, plus the offer at the time which we all love a bargain. (If it works that is) I opted for the hand and nail cream as well my nails could do with strengthening up so I thought this would be good for both, hand and nails. The directions of use is to massage into hands regularly throughout the day. So for the past three weeks I have been using this product and sadly I feel the best place for this cream is in the bin. Massaging a 10 pence size blob into my hands the ...

Beauticology Candy Cane 3 Body Butter Set 06/03/2014

One Poor Set!

Beauticology Candy Cane 3 Body Butter Set Well as you all know I love my moisturisers and I end up with a lot for Christmas and birthday. Most I do tend to like, however this set I’m about to review has got to be the worse I have ever used. I have used so many different brands over the years from the £1 shop to £100 designer brands and this is the worse! Beauticology Candy Cane 3 Body Butter Set: ‘Deeply nourish and moisturise the skin leaving it feeling as soft as silk with the Beauticology Candy Cane body butter set. The 3 pack of body butters includes gorgeous and invigorating scents: peppermint, candy cane and a strawberry swirl.’ - My Findings: When I first opened these up at Christmas they sounded great, scents that I would like and the fact it was deep moisturising was great for me. I get dry skin as I shower a lot, because I train in different sports at different times so some days I could have three showers. First one I opened was Strawberry Swirl I just love strawberry scented items I opened the lid and pealed off the foil seal and half of the moisturiser ended up over the floor it was that running it just poured out! Not what I was expecting at all. I was thinking it was going to be a thick cream like butters normally are. Then onto the fragrance and sadly even that was a let down it smelt very artificial and somewhat sickly too. Cherry Candy Cane again runny, more thinner in consistency than a body lotion. The cherry scent was more like marzipan and very mild at that. So I opened the ...

Toshiba C855 15.6 Inch 1TB 8GB 18/02/2014

Super Purple Laptop

Toshiba C855 15.6 Inch 1TB 8GB Having not long reviewed my iPad where I stated that I find my laptop much better, I thought I would review my laptop so I could also explain what I mean. I’ve had my laptop now for around one year now, at first I was unsure what type I wanted. But, I knew I would be using it for internet use, shopping, reviews etc but also to contact my family that live aboard and low on the list I wanted a purple one! Well I can have my girly moments. A lot of laptops fit this list for me so at first I did some research to find a decent laptop that had a reasonable price tag. Toshiba - C855 15.6 Inch 1TB 8GB: ‘The Toshiba Satellite C855 laptop offers great quality for everyday computing, featuring a 15.6 display and textured matt black finish. Extensive connectivity options are incorporated including SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and HDMI making it ideal for connecting with other devices as well as keeping in touch with people.’ - My Findings: I am not the most high tech person out there and I don’t know much when it comes to laptops. But this one has been a little beauty for me and works a treat. Was ordered online and arrived promptly, comes in a large white box plenty of protective padding in place. Inside the box you have the laptop (of course) a manual and the mains lead/charger. The charge comes in two parts which is common for laptops; they are straight forward to plug into one another. Then plug into the laptop to start charging. You then lift the top of the laptop ...

Monsters Inc Monsters University Party Cups 30/01/2014

A Monster Party

Monsters Inc Monsters University Party Cups I love planning events so when I have the time I like get stuck in. It was my nephews 3rd Birthday on the 28th January, so help my sister I decided to have his party at mine and sort the entertainment! Yes a room full of 3 to 7 year olds I was brave! Monsters Inc University Plastic Cups: My Findings: My Nephew George right now is crazy about Monster Inc, absolutely loves it so I thought why not theme the party around that for him. Shopping around I can tell you children’s themed items are certainly not cheap. You get a pack of eight cups which will hold 200ml each. Some children can be rather heavy handed and these are certainly are not tough enough for them. I got two packs of cups had another idea for them and opted to get the children fruit shoots instead. The few cups I had left over some of the older children were drinking out of them but you could see the slight bend when they were picking them up. So personally I wouldn’t recommend using this for little children. Plus when you have the little ones running around being as there are no tops there will be plenty spillage with excited kids. What I used them for were party bags and wrapped them up myself, they look so much better than giving out party bags. On the cups you have the two main characters Sulley and Mike Wazowski, for kid’s party cups they are a little plain but focuses on the favourite two. There bright in colour and fun for the children, it also has the Monster Inc University logo. They were all very ...

Burt's Bees Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream 28/01/2014

Super Clean Face thanks to Burt's Bees

Burt's Bees Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream There are a lot of beauty products on the market a brand I had never tried before was Burt’s Bees. My friend Toni raves about them and it is the only product she will use on her face. Being a great friend as she is she got me a few Burt’s Bees items for me to try. Burt’s Bees – Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream: ‘Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream is a rich, sulfate-free facial cleanser is made with a gentle, yet effective plant-based cleansing complex featuring quillaja saponaria (soap) bark extract and witch hazel. Luxurious lather foams away excess dirt, oil and make-up leaving skin feelling clean and refreshed. Extracts of chamomile, echinacea and aloe help calm skin while glycerin and cocoa butter provide a touch of moisture for naturally fresh, healthy skin.’ - My Findings: I have used a good many different face cleansing over the years and I have to say this has jumped right to the top of my list. I’ve been using this product for around four weeks now and the feeling it gives my skin is just amazing. My only thing is as it is a pretty much natural product (98% they claim) it has a massive ingredients list, however it is sulfate, parabens, phthalates and petrochemical free. Not tested on animals which is a big plus on my list and is BUVA approved. Using this product is nice and easy, wet your face then apply a small amount of the cleanser to your finger tips and massage over the face. You only need a small amount it goes go ...
