PixiBeauty & PixiPretties. 

I was lucky enough to win with Pixi Beauty UK on Instagram. The prize was a pretty package filled with the latest collaborations with Pixi Beauty & Pixi Pretties : Aspyn Ovard, Caroline Hirons, It’s Judy Time & MaryamNYC.

I love Pixi products, so I was so excited to try everything in this huge package. The box is huge and I couldn’t even carry it when the delivery man passed it too me. 

The inside was every girls dream, all these stunning products was just staring at me, I thought I was in a dream at one point as everything looked so perfect. 

I was really looking forward to trying the Double Cleanse as I’ve been having a few skin problems lately and I literally try anything now and I’m always hoping for a miracle. I applied the cleansing cream as soon as it arrived because I just couldn’t wait. My skin has been smooth since I applied it and I’m hoping I can start a really good skin regime with this cream. 

The box was also full of beautiful palettes which i can’t wait to try.



The product I’m really looking forward to using is the Lower Lash Mascara as I always struggle with mascara on my bottom lashes so I hope it works. Also the Brow Tamer is definitely something I need right now.

 

The package also included a Strobe & Sculpt brush. One end is for highlighting and the other for bronzing and sculpting. I do love a good make up brush. 

Hope you enjoyed this post, I’d love to know what your favourite Pixi Product/Products are in the comments below…

Solution for Dry,Sensitive Skin!

I’m constantly moaning about my skin, always moaning about having sensitive and itchy skin all the time. Recently my skin has been really itchy, a lot more than usual. My face has been sore, red and inflamed. Throughout the years I’ve tried everything that the doctor has gave me but nothing has worked and its kind of impossible to get a doctors appointment these days so I decided to go and ask the pharmacist in Superdrug. He said I most probably had Rosacea, which is a skin condition that affects the face and can cause redness, tingling and spots. The cream he recommend was far too expensive £22 a bottle and it was tiny and he told me it would only last about a month. But then he showed me a different cream, it’s not used for people with Rosacea but it can calm the symptoms and give you a lot of relief from itching and redness and dry skin. 

 

Aqueous Cream.

This cream is basically an alternative for people who can’t use scented products and have really sensitive skin and you can use this as a soap for your face and all over your body too. This is Superdrug branded and is usually £3.00 but it was half price when I bought it so I thought why not. The tub is big, so should last me a while. 


The first thing I done was wash my face and then kept it a tiny bit wet and then applied the cream. Straight away I could feel the tingling feeling in my face go and I was so happy to feel that relief. I patted my face with a face cloth, made sure I didn’t rub it as that would irritate it again. I then applied some more cream when my face was dry, doing this again helps with the dry skin. 


My verdict – if you have sensitive skin, dry skin, struggling with applying make up because of dryness then you need to buy this cream. It’s cheap and it works. I have got one of the most sensitive faces in the world and nothing ever works, but this did and people shouldn’t be suffering with bad skin when their is products like this one to buy, you won’t regret it. I use this cream everyday now, twice a day and I haven’t got skin falling off anymore, my face isn’t tingling and isn’t red and even my spots have reduced. 

Changes I made in February. 

I feel like a hypocrite writing this post now because I’m eating a Easter Egg as I type each word, but I’m still going to write it because I’m allowed a Easter Egg, I’ve made changes in my life but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy a treat or two or three. Oh and I did have 2 chicken & Vegetable spring rolls, but that’s healthy right? 

I’ve never been the healthiest person in the world but I’ve never been a person who doesn’t exercise or doesn’t eat fruit and vegetables either. So when I injured my knee in June 2015, I’ll admit I did let myself go a little. I didn’t imagine I would still be here now in 2017 with a knee injury so this is why I’ve had to make changes to my life. Having a knee injury isn’t pleasant and the first couple of months I really struggled with the pain, the slightest movement of my leg would cause a grinding feeling in my knee and always felt like it was going to dislocate again. At this time I hardly ate food because the pain made me feel sick so I weren’t putting on weight but I felt unhealthy and just wanted to get up and walk but I couldn’t. In March 2016 I started Celebrity Slim Meal Replacement shakes and lost a bit of weight but I didn’t realise at the time that I was losing a lot of muscle mass – which I didn’t have much left off especially in my leg so it weren’t good. I went for an operation a month later for my knee but it didn’t work, but the whole process drained my body completely and I couldn’t even go to the kitchen on my crutches without getting out of breath or feeling like someone was kicking my back every second. It took me 8 months to recover from the operation and I finally managed to walk up the stairs with one crutch, something I’ve never done and I felt really proud of myself. I decided I needed to drop a few pounds after Christmas so decided the quickest way would be meal replacement shakes again, but this time they weren’t working and was draining me completely, I had no energy and the muscle I had gained back was slowly disappearing again. 

The beginning of this month I found a new shake, but this time it was a protein meal replacement called Yokebe and it has an impressive amount of protein in which is something I needed straight away and quickly! I decided to buy 8 tubs as they only have 9 servings and I was attempting phase one which is 3 shakes a day so 1 tub would only last me 3 days. I’d wake up at 10am – maybe I’m supposed to get up earlier but I need a lot of sleep, I think I was a sloth in my previous life. I’d make my shake, 200ml of semi skimmed milk and 5 scoops of powder and shake. I chose the chocolate as I tried the original in the Almaseed shakes and it was disgusting so I decided not to take the risk. The texture is thin so easy to drink, the taste isn’t as bad as I thought it would be, it reminds me of when you have a lolly ice and you have to get the last bit of the stick and you taste the wood on the lolly ice stick, but it is drinkable and I didn’t gag so easy peasy. My second shake would be lunch time 1-2pm and the second shake always tastes nicer than the first, I don’t know why. I then have a banana afterwards as you are allowed up to 3 fruit a day on phase one. I have my 3rd shake about 5pm.

I also have a weightwatchers soup with a plate of broccoli, you can have unlimited vegetables and can have soup if you need it on phase one. I don’t think I could of done it without the soup if I’m honest, maybe you could if you lived on your own but when you have everyone else eating dinner and then your not having anything it’s really bad. I made sure I drank at least 2 litres of water a day, as that’s really important when you are having meal replacement shakes. I carried this on for a whole week and was really proud of myself. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to get through something that seemed so hard at the beginning, and for someone that used to eat way over 2,500 calories a day and constantly craved Diet Pepsi and Jaffa cakes. 


Phase two – 2 shakes a day with 1 meal, fruit and unlimited vegetables. Now if you can get through phase one then phase two should be the easiest thing ever. I decided to have my shakes in the morning and lunch as I really wanted to make a nice meal for dinner as I really did miss chicken!! Now I’m a fussy eater, so meal times for me are a struggle. I stick to simple meals that I know I’ll enjoy, it doesn’t have to be fancy, seasoning can make a simple meal taste amazing. 

 

Healthy Meal ideas for fussy eaters :

Chicken breast fillets with wholegrain rice and vegetables. (I use chicken seasoning which you can buy in Asda for £1.50) and I use black pepper for my rice.

Chicken breast strips with wholegrain pasta with a low fat tomato sauce. (I use Italian garlic seasoning in this meal, which you can also get in Asda for £1.50) 

Tuna with wholegrain pasta. ( I use a tuna seasoning which you can mix into the pasta, it’s really yummy). 

Salt and black pepper turkey burgers with wholewheat buns and lettuce & cucumbers. 

Diced grilled chicken salad. 

Hard boiled eggs with wholemeal toast. 

Vegetable or chicken soup with dark rye ryvita.

If I ever feel like a cheat day, I try to avoid it the best I can so I make Chicken breast fillets, salt and pepper wedges and corn on the cob. This is a great meal for when you are feeling like giving up and you need some carbs but you are still getting protein and vegetables into your diet so that’s better than ordering a Chinese takeaway or a donner kebab! 


Other changes I’ve made is exercise. With a knee injury it’s really hard to find exercises that you can do without hurting your knee even more. I searched YouTube for hours and I came across a 20 minute chair exercise, for older people or younger people who have a injury or disability. The first time I attempted this workout I nearly passed out. The second time I completed it, but was still out of breath but I felt really good afterwards. I decided to purchase some dumbells for the workout so I could improve each time. The third time I attempted the workout I finished it and was sweaty but I felt great and stronger than when I started. Before my knee injury, I loved going to the gym so being able to exercise at home even with a bad knee makes you feel so much better. I do this exercise 3 days a week as I have to spend the other days on my physiotherapy. It’s only been 2 weeks but I feel stronger, my muscle in my leg has definitely increased and even my physiotherapy has felt easier. I have another 2 weeks of phase two and then phase 3 will be just 1 shake a day and 2 healthy lean meals. 

Not every diet is perfect though and their was a few things I didn’t enjoy about it :

I had heartburn every day through phase one and I don’t know why. I never get heartburn so it confused me. 

The price – I found Yokebe shakes in Lloyds Pharmacy and they had a offer on the shakes for just £6.50 each. But before I found them in here, I looked in boots, Superdrug and Asda and was shocked at the price which was £13.99 for one tub. So I decided to buy 8 tubs of Yokebe from lloyds pharmacy and used a £10 off voucher so I only paid £40 which is a really good price. If I had to pay £13.99 I don’t think I would of started it. 

I was disappointed that my skin didn’t improve. I know that it doesn’t say anything about improving skin but I imagined it would because of the amount of vitamins and minerals in the shake, also with the increase of water I was drinking. I don’t think my skin will ever be smooth and spot free so I’ll stop moaning and just get on with it. 


The main purpose of these changes I’ve made wasn’t to lose lots of weight and be thin in a month. All I wanted was to feel healthier, lose a bit of weight and increase my muscle mass and improve on my exercise and physiotherapy. I feel like I’ve achieved all of them things even though I haven’t stepped on a weighing scale because that’s something I will never do as I think scales are damaging to confidence and self esteem. If I stepped on a scale now I would probably be heavier than when I first started the diet, based on muscle mass not actual weight so I think they are really inaccurate on that basis. I’m going to carry on this journey and hopefully my recovery time will be reduced and that’s all I can hope for. 

Open The Parcel! 

Another week, another parcel. I’m not complaining but I still live at home with my mum so I’m running out of space for everything. I’m in a box room with zero storage. If some random person came into my room they would think I had a hoarding problem. 

Anyway I received some good things this week and one of them I can eat so that’s good! 

 

The Devon Fudge Company Zesty Chocolate orange fudge. 

I won this delicious bag of Chocolate Orange fudge on Twitter with a company called The Devon Fudge Company. I always enter the competitions because I have a sweet tooth and I love fudge. I entered it on the week when I was having 3 meal replacements shakes a day with a vegetable soup so I was dreaming of fudge basically even though I know I couldn’t eat any because of the diet, but then I won, just my luck! But I’ve only ate 4 pieces so far, they are my little treat at the end of the day when I’ve been good on my diet and it seems to be working. The orange is really zesty and I love that, the more orange the better. 

 

A Poop Emoji Bluetooth Speaker.

If anyone knows me then they will know I’m obsessed with the Poop Emoji but I found out the other day that it was supposed to be ice cream??? but it’s a poo now! I won this little cutie on Facebook with Jam Audio UK. It’s bluetooth which is good and it’s really loud, so the day I got it I blasted High School Musical songs just to annoy the neighbours, I used to be a huge fan of High School Musical, I think at one point I had the game for my Nintendo DS haha. Other than the great sound quality it just makes me happy, the little face actually cheers me up.

Adventure Time Ice King Jumper. 

You might be thinking ‘WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?’ Well I love it. I’m a huge fan of Adventure time and when I find unusual Adventure time clothing or figures I just have to buy them. I found this on Ebay and only paid £8.99 and I can’t wait to wear it.

Napoleon Dynamite DVD 

Napoleon Dynamite is my second favourite movie ever, the first is This Is England. I spend most of my time in the Entertainment DVD shop which is called Music Magpie online and I also buy lots of posters from there too. This was only £1.99 and it was special 2 disc edition so I had to get it!

 

Iconic London Strobing Stick.

I have been wanting to buy a Strobing Stick for a while but I really wanted the Iconic London one but the price was £24.99 so I thought I would wait until next month but I entered the competition for one on Iconic London’s Twitter and won! I chose the shine and I can’t wait to use it.

Affordable Blog Photo Props!

I’ve been blogging for nearly 6 months now but it definitely feels like longer. When I first started I didn’t really have a clue what I was doing and if what I was doing was even right. I decided to look at other bloggers to get an idea about everything and I soon learnt so many things about blogging. 

The main thing I’ve struggled with is buying Props for my blog photography on a budget. I try to buy something new every month but I keep to a budget of £10 and it’s surprising how many things you can buy that can be used as a prop.

Amazon

I love Amazon for my Props and I always get everything so cheap. I search for party decorations, wedding decorations and then depending on the time of the year (Easter decorations, Halloween decorations). Recently I bought a bag of pink flowers for £1.99, a star bunting for £1.99 and a packet of Easter felt decorations for 99p and fairy lights for 99p. 

Urban Outfitters

I love Urban Outfitters especially when they have a sale on and that’s when I get a few Props. In their January sales I bought 2 mini star piñata’s that should of cost me £12 but I only paid £3 and I love them in my photos. 

The Works

I never heard of The Works before last year but a shop opened in my local shopping centre and now I’m in there all the time. They sell books, board games, jigsaws, pens and all quirky items. So I decided to buy a mini trolley as I’ve wanted one for ages but just didn’t know where to get one. It was only £4 and when I’m blogging about make up I can stick some in the trolley. They also sell mini baskets so I’m going to get one of those as well. 


Home N Bargains

I’m not gonna lie, Home N Bargains is like my favourite shop ever and recently they have been selling some lovely products and perfect items for blog photo Props. They are stocking a lot of Rose Gold at the moment and Unicorns and I picked up some lovely notebooks that I can use in my photos. I also got my Lightbox from here for only £8 which is also a really good prop to use.

Art Prints From Etsy. 

I love Easy and it’s a great place to find unique art prints and I also love that I’m buying prints from people who have a passion for art and are trying to become successful and enjoy what they do and that’s why I try to buy a product of Etsy every month.

You don’t even have to spend money on blog props if you don’t want to. Have a look around your house and bedroom and you will definitely find something you can use to make your photos look awesome. 

If I’m writing a makeup/beauty post then I will use some of the make up I already own and it works really well and it doesn’t cost you anything.

Glasses & Cases

Another great prop especially if you already own glasses or use glasses for reading, or you just might find a really pretty glasses case that you can use. Also you can use sunglasses as props in the summer.

 

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and hopefully got some useful tips and can start buying affordable props or have a good rummage through your house and attic because you never know! 

 

Open The Parcel!

It feels like forever since my last Open The Parcel post, so I’m excited to be able to write up another thanks to all the delivery drivers and my postman – he’s my favourite. My Postman actually waits about 5 minutes after he knocks because he knows it takes me ages to get to the door on my crutches. 

So this week I’ve had some really good parcels, everything I got this week was all won in competitions that I entered this month. 

Lindt Lindor Heart Chocolates.

My Favourite chocolates ever. I won these beautiful chocolates from Rush Hair & Beauty on Twitter. I’ve actually ate all the chocolates, but I’m keeping the cute heart tin because I’m sure I will find something to put inside it. (I’m a secret hoarder).

img_0269

Bioderma Cleansing Foam Gel.

I won this from a competition held by Bioderma on Facebook. I’ve always been interested in trying Bioderma products but never got round to trying them and I am a bit reluctant in trying new products for my skin/face as my skin is really sensitive. I nearly ended up in hospital on Christmas Eve a couple of years ago because I used coconut shampoo and I nearly ended up bald and thought my hair was going to go on fire! I haven’t tried this product on my face yet but I decided to try it on my hand as a precaution. So you have to wet the skin and then apply the gel and rub it in until it gets a foam texture and then rinse off. After I rinsed it off my hand felt a little bit itchy but it didn’t show up a rash or anything and then it was okay after about 5 minutes. So I’m going to try this over the weekend because if it goes bad I don’t have to go anywhere so I can hide my face in my bedroom.

Dr PAWPAW Balms.

I love Dr PAWPAW balms and I’ll admit I have about 3 of each colour. I won these balms with Dr PAWPAW over on Facebook and I have been entering the competitions for well over a year to win them even though I buy them anyway, but it’s still good when you can get a product you love for free. My favourite is the Red Sparkle. I don’t know if it’s just me but I do think they are a little bit expensive but then again it doesn’t stop me from buying them.

img_0308

Emozioni Sterling Silver Busy Bee Bar Bracelet.

I won this stunning bracelet over at Emozioni on Twitter. I’ve been trying to win some beautiful jewellery for a while so I was so happy when I won this bracelet. As soon as I showed my mum she loved it so I gifted it to her and said it can be a early Mother’s Day present. This bracelet is only £39.95 which I think is a great price for such a lovely bracelet. I’m now looking for extra charms for my mum which will be perfect presents for her birthday and Christmas.

Mark Hill Hair Products & In The Style Curve Dress.

I entered a competition on In The Style Curve on Twitter and won some lovely goodies. I’ve been thinking of buying a few Mark Hill Hair products for a while so I was so happy that I won the Wicked Waver as I’ve read so many good reviews. I have naturally curly hair but I’ve had it straight since I was about 13 years old as my hair is like a big frizzy thing, it was atrocious back in the day. So I’m excited to use this to make some lovely wavy curls that aren’t frizzy. 

img_0294

The other Mark Hill Hair goodies included Spray Mousse, Amplifying Serum and a root lift.

img_0292

The dress that I won is really beautiful, but if I’m being honest it’s not something I would usually wear and it’s a little bit see-through so I don’t know how I will wear it. I think it would be something I would wear in the Summer maybe, but right now I won’t be wearing it as I’m still on crutches, my arms are fat and I just wouldn’t feel comfortable even though it is from their CURVE range. I’m a curvy girl but I’m not comfortable with my curves and definitely not in a dress with thin straps.

img_0300

Ghost Sweetheart Fragrance.

I won this beautiful fragrance with GhostFragrances over on Instagram. The smell is sweet just like the name. I’ve had lots of ghost fragrances and I’ve loved them all and I love this one just as much.


That’s another Open The Parcel post finished, I hope you enjoyed reading it and maybe you have found something you would love to have too. 

Until next time…

How my blog started.

Well I started my blog in October 2016 and never had a clue what I was doing but I knew that I loved writing and I really started to enjoy it. I’ve always been meaning to start a blog but I guess life always got in the way a little bit – but I suffered a really bad knee injury in June 2015 and I realised that all I was doing was sitting around feeling sorry for myself but I couldn’t do much on crutches so I think that made me realise that this was the right time to start a blog as I had a lot of spare time in my life.

Advice to new bloggers.

Be honest – What I mean about this is, don’t be something your not just to please everyone else, and write honestly about things that you love and dislike, I love reading posts full of honesty, they are my favourite by far.

Make blogger friends – At the start of blogging you will probably feel a bit lonely and scared because you don’t know any other bloggers and you don’t think anyone will read your posts so you need to put yourself out there. Follow the blogging communities on twitter and interact with bloggers in chats and you will make some really good friends and it will make the whole blogging experience amazing.

REVIEW – UFIT Protein Drinks.

I’ve always wanted to try UFIT Protein Shakes, so when I seen UFIT asking for bloggers to review their drinks, I jumped at the chance. I love to try things before i buy because I’m a fussy person when it comes to food and drink. 

I am writing this post as a honest review, i received 4 UFIT shakes to try, I only tried 3 of the drinks as I am not a coffee fan. 

protein

As i am still recovering from a knee injury, i need as much protein as i can get these days. I have recently been drinking Meal Replacement shakes and been told to stop as they decrease muscle mass. So i was really excited to try a Protein Shake and UFIT has amazing reviews. The shakes are packed with 22g of protein and they are full of fibre, minerals and vitamins. The best thing is the NO ADDED SUGAR. So many protein shakes these days are full of sugar and that is so unhealthy. 

ufit

As i stated above, I didn’t try the Iced Latte shake as I really dislike coffee but I tried all the other flavours.

Banana Flavour.

The first thing I loved was the packaging, the bottle is a really good size. I don’t usually drink banana milkshakes, but I like bananas so I thought it couldn’t be that bad. The shake is really smooth and i didn’t have to drink it all in one go like I do with other shakes because it was really nice and I wanted to make it last for a while. The banana was actually my favourite out of all of them. 

Strawberry Flavour.

Strawberry was my least favourite, but I don’t like strawberry milkshake. I’m not saying it was horrible though, the smell was lovely and I did drink it so it weren’t unbearable. People who love strawberry milkshake will love this shake as it’s smooth, fruity and really filling.

Vanilla Flavour.

I enjoyed the Vanilla shake and It reminded me an ice cream i used to eat when i was younger, but i just can’t remember what the ice cream was called. It’s a lovely, creamy shake and it’s very filling. 

Overall Review – Would I buy this product?

Personally, I would buy this product. The shakes are some of the best I’ve tasted. They haven’t got that artificial taste like some other protein shakes I’ve tried and the bottle’s are a good size and I think for the price they are really good. You can get 8 shakes for £16 and the other flavour that I haven’t mentioned is chocolate which I am sure is delicious. I also like that they have a sweet taste which is needed for me as i have a sweet tooth so it does stop me from wanting to grab a mars bar. 

You can find UFIT Shakes over at theproteindrinksco 

You can also purchase UFIT shakes in Holland & Barrett, Tesco, Iceland, Ocado & Amazon.

Valentine’s Day!

I always think of Valentine’s day as just another excuse to spend lots of money that you haven’t actually got, on things that people don’t actually need. I like being single and I don’t think I’d want it any other way. If anyone knows me, they know that I’m not a cheesy person at all, Valentine’s day makes me cringe a little bit, but if people like doing all that then that’s up to them, but I just personally don’t like it. To be honest, people are lucky if they even get a hug of me, I only hug my cat and I’d hug my goldfish if i could too!

Every Valentine’s day my Mum buys me a card and probably food or chocolate. This year she got me the best card ever with the poop emoji and I love it.

card

She also got me my favourite sweets, ICE CREAMS – THANK GOD I’M GOING ON A DIET AT THE END OF THE MONTH – AGAIN!

ice-creams

She also went out this morning and got me a slice of my favourite cake, red velvet!

red-velvet

I don’t normally buy myself anything on Valentine’s day but this year i thought why not! I found some lovely little Valentine gifts and I had to buy them. 

I’ve always wanted a Message in a bottle, but i’m not going to read the message, I’m keeping it a mystery!

I also found this beautiful box, perfect for little memories.

cherish

This Valentine’s day, I’m going to be doing all the things I normally do – being lazy, eating & watching TV at home.

home

I’m prepared for the night, David Brent DVD & After Eights – I do love a bit of mint.

 

You can’t watch a good movie and eat yummy chocolates without comfy pyjamas. My mum is a babe, so she bought me new pyjamas and a new dressing gown. I nearly cried with excitement because the character on the pyjamas is one of my favourites. Let’s just say I’m a bit obsessed with Adventure time and If you came into my bedroom you would think you was in The Land of ooo.

BMO IS SO CUTE!

 

So that’s how I’m spending my Valentine’s day – I’d love to know what everyone else is getting up to? x

Open The Parcel!

I have been waiting for 2 months to write up this blog post and I’m finally writing it. Every day I spent looking for the postman and delivery drivers to see if my parcel was going to arrive. 

Just because Christmas last year, I won a competition that I didn’t think was real but now I can confirm it was 100% real and I have a MacBook Air!

img_0196

This is my biggest win to date and I feel very lucky. Considering the only thing I ever used to win in school was the design a egg competition in easter, I’m very happy with winning a MacBook. 

All I had to do to win this competition was to Like and share a post on Betty Collective’s Facebook page and they chose me as the lucky winner. Wins like this keep me going and helps me stay positive and it just shows that you can win amazing prizes like this and it’s a great hobby and you’ve got nothing to lose. 

img_0195

I’ve always wanted a MacBook Air but I’ve never had the money to buy one. My old laptop is 6 years old and it takes 10 minutes for me to load up google on it so I definitely needed a new laptop.

img_0197

img_0206

I think it’s going to take me a while to get used to it but I LOVE IT already!

I would like to say thank you to Betty Collective for this amazing prize, as it’s something I would never be able to afford by myself. You should all definitely check out The Betty Blog as they give lots of advice for teenage girls on periods and all about life!
