LIFESTYLE : A New Hobby?

Hi Everyone! 

So I thought that I would write a post about a new hobby that Luke and I are collectively trying. 

Well I'm not sure that Hobby is the correct word? 

Basically, we decided in the winter that we wanted to create a nice chilled out space in the Garden. 

If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I am obsessed with having fresh flowers in the house. 





We started by clearing it a month or so ago, but we hadn't go around to planting yet. 

We are also still debating whether to get a little swinging chair (especially as the weather has been so nice). 

But first, its time to get a little life back into the garden as at the moment it is a blank canvas. 

I decided that I want a little herb patch. 

Its one of the clearest fondest memories that I have about my grandmother's garden growing up so I picked up some Basil, oregano and Thyme. 



I got these cute little pots from Morrisons! 

I decided to put a little extra Oregano in the Dinosaur as I think it will create a nice effect when its fully grown! 

I am going to keep them on the windowsill for now as its a little sun trap, and because the weather is being really unpredictable at the same time. 



Luke created little signs for them! 

Cute. 



We also planted some random assorted flower seeds outside in the big trough. 

I am hoping that I will be able to get some Sunflower seeds from the flowers that I got this week and then I can plant them too in a different pot :)


I have a load of different plants around the house but this one is a mystery....




I thought that it had died over the summer and its just started to sprout again....

Zombie plant? 

I'll keep you informed! 

Thanks for Reading

YOUTUBE : A Little Catch Up

Hi Everyone, 

It's time for another Youtube catch up!

The past week has been a little difficult to film in because of the heatwave that we have been enjoying.

I felt as though, you wouldn't want to see me sweat all over the camera haha. 

I did manage to get a couple of videos out this week!

I filmed my little trip to London and I even saw the Queen , Prince William and Prince Harry! 



I was so stoked that I managed to get it all on camera and it was a lovely day out with my Mum! 


I also uploaded a slightly more chilled video to the gaming channel. 

I thought that I would share my Favourite game of the month, Stardew Valley. 

Because of the nature of the game, I have decided to film each season so you can see the progress I make during the in-game year. 



I am secretly hoping that I can film and upload one more video to the gaming channel by the end of the week....

I have spent some time today rearranging the main channel as I noticed that after all this time, there was no separate category for Beauty Videos. I also noticed that I have hit 4000 views. Woo hoo! 

I know to most this isn't really that impressive, but I do love seeing the counter change :)

Thanks for reading!

BEAUTY : June's Empties



Hello, 

So as the Beauty Brawl has already occurred this month, this post is gonna be shorter that normal. 

I have only three empties to share! 



They are :

Superdrug's Cherry and Macadamia Nut Body Butter -  I love this product. Its so soothing and it smells amazing (it leaves you smelling like a cherry cake). I love that a little goes along way too. I'm sad to see it come to an end so I will definitely be repurchasing. 


Rimmel London's Stay Matte Pressed Powder in 001 Transparent -  It was OK as a Powder, but its not going to change the world anytime soon. I kept kinda forgetting about it and going on to another one. It doesn't really set the makeup enough to last over a work shift... but its cheap and cheerful. 

Collection's Blush in No 3 - Cheeky -  It's small, compact and fits in a handbag nicely. The only thing is that - I chose half way through the colour shades as I didn't want something too weak or something too strong. For me this is way too weak. I had to apply alot to get an effect. Which lead to me using more. 

So thats it for this month! 

This month has been very beauty focused and I've loved it!

Thanks for reading

LIFESTYLE... More Meal Prep Ideas

Hellooooo! 

So while the Beauty Brawl was happening, I decided to go for a different recipe for the meal prep! 

Well actually that being said, I didn't really have a plan when I first approached it. 

I started by cutting up all the left over veggies from the week. 

They were carrots, peppers, onions, salad tomatoes and celery. 






I then found a jar of stray Bolognese Sauce so I added that and some Oregano and hey presto meal prep sauce is complete : 





As there were so many veggies to use I made enough sauce for ten portions (enough for Luke and I for a week) 

As Luke hates pre prepped pasta he offered to cook it in the morning prior to work - however on the day that I took this picture he cooked a little bit too much. 


It was very tasty none the less and the fresh tomatoes gave an amazing flavour.

It also freezes well! 

Its well worth the consideration! 

Thanks for Reading

BEAUTY: My Evening Skin Routine

Hello everybody, 

So the Blog recently turned two years old (yes I know, I know) and the most popular post that I have written to date is one about my Skin Care Routine 

And I recently looked back at it... I was struck by how I literally use none of those products anymore... so I figured that it was time for an update. 

I've gone for my evening routine as I am usually too lazy to do it in the morning. 



DISCLAIMER : My skin is drier than the desert and really sensitive so some of it might seem overkill

So Step one - I remove my Makeup with a Makeup wipe (Haven't featured as ran out booooo) - I usually use the tea tree oil ones from Superdrug. 

Step two - Apply the 9-5 cleansing lotion from Lush and wash face.  I find this stage really calms my face and removes whatever the wipe forgot. 

Step Three - I use Simple's Foaming Cleanser - Two cleansers I hear you shout? Yes. One is liquid and one is a foam. The foam leaves the face tingling and feeling as though its nice and fresh 

Step four - apply a stupid amount of body butter (The one picked is Cherry and Macadamia Nut from Superdrug) all over body. Normally after a shower. 

Step Five - Apply Soap and Glory's Heel Genius to feet and massage in a bit. My feet are the driest part of my body so they need all the help they can get. Plus the small of this is amazing sooooo 

Step six - Apply Hand cream to dry hands. The one pictured is from Marks and Spencer's (Royal Jelly) ... and massage in as this is the second driest part of ones body. 

Finally - apply Lipbalm - the one pictured is by The Happy Naturals (Argan Oil and Mandarin) . 

Finish and feel as though you are so slippery and clean, you are basically a dolphin.

So all in all that takes like 10 -15 mins and my skin feels so smooth in the morning, ready for the day ahead and ready for makeup!

Fashion : A New Bag and Harrods Purchases!


Hello everyone!

I rarely do Haul posts anymore which is a shame as I used to love showing you things that I was genuinely excited for. 

I'm hoping to change that...

With a tiny fashion accessory haul! 





This first piece is the handiest little bag think I've ever owned. 

Luke bought it for me from Corfu as my handbag was always giving me a dead arm.... I'm inseparable without it. 

Its a simple backpack, that seems to accommodate everything I want to shove in there. 

Similar to Hermonie's bag in Harry Potter. 

I stretched it to the limit in London recently. 

I have noticed that bags like these are in fashion and I am hoping to pick up a slightly less colourful one for work times. 







Speaking of work, when I popped into Harrods, I went to the Cath Kidston section and I picked up a new lanyard for my work card. 

The one I wear at the moment is a Children in Need one (A charity in England) but sadly as I wear it everyday, its started to break. 

I am a huge fan of this British Brand so I love that I found something to brighten up my days at work. 






And finally, I gave in and bought a new purse.

 Its also from Harrods and its one of their own collection. Its Black with little Drawings of London on it. (Click on the image to get a better view) 

My favourite drawing is the London Eye with the Love Heart in the middle. 

I think that with everything that is happening around the country, its an important little message to share. 

So thats it for now, I'm sure that I'll be sharing more Fashion and more Haul posts in the future. 

Thanks for Reading!

LIFESTYLE : June Favourites

Helllooooo 

So its time for some Lifestyle Favourites for the month.

I will start with my Favourite Music, 

So this Month,  I have really been getting into Dance Music. 

This is due to spending more time out and about and also at the Gym. 

I think that dance music just naturally gives me the energy and motivation to keep going and to get moving! 

My two Favourite Artists for this are Calvin Harris and David Guetta.

I have followed Calvin since he was a little known lad from Scotland and David feels like he has been around forever. 

The Two Albums that are the best in my opinion are : 

18 Months 







Nothing But the Beat 




So moving on to my Favourite film....

Ok so I'm not sure favourite is the right word buttttt its a film that has impressed me and make me feel awkward in the best way.

There was a film channel in Corfu and there was a film that we saw was half way through. 

 I was really interested in it and Luke said turn it off and then we will catch it when we get home. 

I'm glad we did. 

It's called Sleeping With The Enemy and it stars Julia Roberts. 

It about a woman that fakes her own death to get away from her abusive Husband.... Thats all i'm gonna tell you....

Here is the trailer...



And finally, My Favourite TV show. 

SO I SPENT SOOOOOO LONG BEING ADAMENT THAT I WOULD HATE THIS SHOW BUT... I love Rick and Morty now. 

For those who don't know, its another Adult cartoon that I fallen in love with, this one is about a scientist and his grandson. 

I have been watching the show with Luke on Netflix and it leave me in laughter fits. 

I think my Favourite Episode so far is the episode with all the Mr MeeSeeks. 

There is a clip below 



So thats it for June, 

I love discovering new things so these posts are alway fun to write! 

Let mw know what you have been loving!
