Beauty – How Painful is an Epilator?

I think my pain threshold is generally quite high. I have given birth to three children, had nine tattoos and regularly have my eyebrows waxed. I had heard that epilating was really painful, but how bad could it really be? Recently I was sent the Silk-epil 9 SensoSmart epilator from Braun and I decided to put it to the test and find out the answer to the question how painful...

Beauty – The Pampering Products I’m Loving this Season

The weather has definitely taken a turn for the worse again this week. With temperatures dipping, and heating going on all over the UK, it has never been more important to spend a little time pampering yourself and taking care of your skin. Since going along to blogging events with both Lush and The Body Shop in the last month, I have been making an extra effort to have a...

Beauty – I Tried Out HD Brows with HI Therapies and This Was the Result

I have been having issues with my eyebrows for a good few months now. I have been trying out different products trying to find something to improve them to no avail, spending money and getting frustrated. Last week I was invited along to my local beauty salon HI Therapies to try out their HD Brows treatment and I was so excited to see if it would finally be the key...

Beauty – Bournemouth Bloggers at The Body Shop

It hit me recently how little I actually take care of my skin. I have religiously been removing my makeup without fail every night for a number of years now but that’s where my skincare regime ends unless I am feeling particularly fancy or reviewing a new product for the blog. Generally speaking I will grab the micellar water and a few cotton pads, go to town with them and...

Beauty – Are Primark Nails Worthy of the Hype?

I have a confession to make, one that probably isn’t surprising for anybody who watches my instagram stories and often sees the state of my nails on a daily basis. I am a nail biter. I try really hard not to bite them, but when I get stressed out (which seems to be all the time lately) I resort to biting them and, as a result, my nails are very...

Beauty – Celebrating the Launch of Temple Spa at the Bluewater Spa in Bournemouth with Sunny Bird PR

I am a huge fan of a good spa day but, with the three young children, I don’t get the chance to enjoy them very often. I was really pleased to be invited along to an event at the Connaught Hotel’s Bluewater Spa to celebrate their partnership with leading beauty skincare brand Temple Spa. My sister has previously stayed at the hotel and said how lovely it is there, but...

Beauty – The Importance of Self Care for Mums

As a mum, it can be easy to prioritise everyone else and their needs. It is sometimes hard to remember to take care of yourself, but it is so important to practise self care as often as possible. After all, you are of no use to anybody if you burn yourself out by failing to rest and take care of yourself regularly. I wanted to share with you some of...

Beauty – The Makeup & Skincare I Packed for Our Cruise

In case you somehow missed it, I am currently away on my last day of my very first cruise. Being a cruise newbie, I had no idea what to pack in general, and headed onto the internet to get some tips on what to pack for a cruise as a family. When it came to packing my makeup and skincare though, I decided I wanted just my staple products with...

Beauty – Origins Ginzing™ Ultra-Hydrating Energy-Boosting Cream

If you checked out my week in the life vlog, or follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me mention that I bought myself some beauty treats with a gift card in Marks and Spencer’s recently. They were items that I loved the look of, but simply wouldn’t have been able to justify had I not of had the gift card to spend. One of my favourites from the...
