On Thursday I was lucky enough to attend Lush Swansea’s first blogger event! The event was based around the new Christmas collection and I got to experience it all with the blogging babes; Neesha, Ffion, Charlee and Holly, as well as new blogger Leanne and even Johny came too, now that he is addicted to Lush. I also got to have a quick catch up with Katie, who I hadn’t seen properly for 3 years, so that was nice.
Johny and I decided to go on a weekend away to the Isle of Wight and we had a lovely time exploring the island.
We made our way bright and early on Friday morning and traveled down to Southampton where we were catching the ferry from. We made good timing and were soon on the boat , making our way across the sea to the Island.
The first month in college has gone by in a whirlwind and it’s been absolutely AMAZING. Initially, the first couple of days seemed quite disorganized. There were a lot of room changes, swapping of students and tutors and loads of form filling. Eventually things settled down and we were soon full swing into all the topics. It is very very intense. Studying lots of new subjects is very daunting and there are a lot of technical terms to learn.
I love music and think that it can really help your emotional state and it can be an escape for any sort of reason. I’ve always had quite a varied music taste. I can listen to most genres of music from rock to pop.
Boots have launched a new wonderful thing called the ‘Beauty Emporium’. It is heaven for all us beauty addicts and such a fab idea to see and try all the new beauty lines. The Beauty Emporium is a new set up in boots where on a weekly basis they will be promoting different brands and offering tips and tricks of the latest trends.
Boots kindly invited me to attend their Swansea opening event and have a look around the emporium. I decided to take my mum with me and have a girly mother and daughter evening.
I have one pet, a cat and her name is Cleo. She has black fur with grey flecks going through her chest and paws. We had her from a kitten about 8 years ago, when a lady who we used to get eggs from was moving back to Ireland. Her cat had two kittens a grey sort of tabby and a black one. When my parents told us about them, my sisters and I decided we would like the grey one and we were going to call it Fleur. What I didn’t know was apparently my dad had said to my mum we could get both. We went as a family to have a look at them, however when we got there another family had already been and taken the grey one, so we were left with the other. When I saw her though, I fell in love – she was gorgeous. We decided to name her Cleo Fleur. When we got her home she was so timid and quiet. It took her a while to get used to the house and we had to keep her in certain rooms to begin with as she hadn’t had all her injections.
It used to be a luxury for me to go to a MAC counter. The closest one was in Cardiff and I would hardly ever go there. It would be a big planned shopping trip. Until I recently found out MAC have launched a counter in Debenhams Swansea store.
I have been taking Roaccutane for a month now and am going to share my experience so far.
When I started taking the tablets I knew my fattiest meal would be in the evening so decided that would be the best time to take them, however I found it hard to remember to take them and my boyfriend was always reminding me. I take my other tablets first thing in the morning and am in a routine doing that, so I just think it’s going to take time to get used to taking these tables with my meal.
After trying the Proactiv+ 3 Step Skincare Range, I was really intrigued to try more of their products. I was kindly sent the Proactiv Repairing Concealer* to test out.
The Repairing Concealer is marketed so that you can treat your spots and the same time as hiding them. With salicylic acid in it, it’s targeted to treat each individual spot, as you apply the concealer to cover up the imperfections. This concealer is a quad and advertised so that you can customize the shades to match your skin tone.
