I love Autumn

As much as I enjoy Summer and this year we had a glorious one, I felt ready for Autumn to come this September. Heck, I was even looking forward to it! I think it might be my favourite season actually although I am a big fan of Christmas festivities. There is just something about how colourful and beautiful every looks. I love any excuse to wear jumpers and anyone who knows me understands that I have an addiction to buying coats! Also the fact that it is not bitterly cold yet.

This year we are really enjoying seeing the Pup having constant new experiences. He has never seen Autumn before as he was born this January. I have noticed recently how being outside massively helps my well being. Just going for a walk and getting some fresh air into those lungs can help solve a lot of things.  Last weekend we went to a local pumpkin patch, I am lucky as we do live in a place surrounded by country side. It was busy and you had to fight for a wheelbarrow which is something I would of never thought I would be doing when I lived in the City. In addition to dodging a fair few suicidal pheasants!

We decided on picking out three pumpkins and it was very much my idea but I can tell the husband really enjoyed it too. Chewie had a great time making friends as usual with lots of dogs and had a good look at the pigs and sheep. One of sheep seemed to like him a lot!

When we got home I got my arse kicked at pumpkin carving, I mean I used to be the go to pumpkin carver. Working with Children it is just something that you find yourself doing annually.
Although it was normally the basic triangle eyes and nose jobby!

Turns out because my husband is a Stonemasion by trade he is a pro at pumpkin carving. He created two masterpieces. So I felt I had to up my game and completely forgot about the reality of my carving skills. Ruining my poor pumpkin, part of it is still in the fridge hoping to be used in a soup or pie.

I have never tried pumpkin actually so maybe this is the year where I decide pumpkin is my new favourite winter staple?
You can see his creation above looking very scary in the dark. I can't say I wasn't slightly annoyed that he had won and that I should of just stuck to what I knew.
Oh well there is always next year!

What are you favourite Autumn time activities?

The night I cried at the Birmingham Hippodrome

Photos @warhorseonstage

Although I am not the biggest fan of musicals I do enjoy a trip to the theatre. I had originally seen the theatre production of War Horse at the cinema. 
So when I was asked if I would like to see the production at the theatre itself I jumped at the chance. 

When I saw it the first time I wept my little heart out so I was already prepared to be emotional. 
Although what I could not be prepared for was the shear awe I was in when I saw the mechanical horses in front of me. 

I honestly think this is the best theatre production I have ever seen, the detail of every aspect of the play is mind-blowing. Every element deeply thought about and carried out with perfection. 
From the engineering that went into the puppet creation, the puppeteers, the wonderful actors and actresses and the simple yet effective props and scenery/backdrops. Absolutely breath taking.

I absolutely loved the beautiful songs that were intwined with the story. The raw emotion of the characters and fact that one puppeteer managed to give a mechanical goose so much personality. 
The Goose was actually one of my favourite parts.  I feel like the goose needed more of an applause to be honest! 

A truly wonderful experience and if you ever get that chance to see it, I really recommend you go and you will have the best time! 
Now I need to pluck up the courage and find the emotional strength to watch the film and read the novel!
Wish me luck!

Alpaca Adventures

I like to find my mom presents that she would never of thought of and that are a little different,  she likes to do things rather than collect 'bath stuff' as gifts. Although don't get me wrong sometimes she loves so called 'bath stuff' but enough is enough! She adores animals in all shapes and sizes and I know shes a dab hand with an Alpaca, so I thought a day walking Alpacas and having a cream tea afterwards would be amazing.

I found a voucher on Groupon and apart from a few teething problems with booking the date the whole organising went pretty smoothly.
I originally bought this for a little day out for my mom and grandma but my mom really wanted me to go. I had never been around an Alpaca to be honest but I must admit we had the best day!

The activities were held at Charnwood Forest Alpacas and Chilli Bean Cafe such a cute place and you could tell that the staff loved the animals. It was surprisingly busy for a Monday afternoon and mostly adults wanting to walk the Alpacas. I don't know why I assumed it would mainly be children.
We were given a briefing about how to handle our designated Alpaca. As well as each given the opportunity to purchase food for them. (I'm glad I did because I would of felt really bad if my Alpaca was looking at me with his big eyes and I didn't produce the goods!)

I was given the oldest boy which I didn't realise until the end, I was previously told the oldest normally wanted to be at the back but not my Pundit he was off near the front. Although he was so calm and he happily let some others over take. Mom was given a bad boy called Jamiroquai which personally I think is an incredible name for an Alpaca, he was always at the front. We went for a stroll and walked past the Lady Alpacas which the boys were very pleased about. Then around half way through our walk we went into the Bluebell wood which was so pretty. This is were the food was to be given. Pundit was so well behaved and waited patiently for handfuls of food. Jamiroquai not so much, he proceeded to gobble all the food at once including attempting to eat the paper bag. He also did not think having a selfie was a good idea. Which I found hilarious!

We then continued our travels and walked through some further fields at the end of our walk the Alpacas left behind seemed so happy to have their pals back. I like to think they were discussing their adventures with each other. I was a little sad to give my old boy back but he was pretty relieved to leave me I think. We then went into the cafe where we were given our veggie cream tea with some sparkle. Sometimes with these vouchers the cream tea can be a little minimal shall we say, not today! We had a feast, sandwiches, cakes, scones and a serving of sweet potato fries which I was very happy about. We literally couldn't move afterwards, I definitely recommend a day with the Alpacas I told anybody that would listen about it, anyone would of thought it was a present for me I enjoyed it that much.

Oranges and Berries

If you have been on my blog before you will know that I absolutely love the brand Makeup Revolution the quality of products for such affordable prices. As well as the easy access to such a wide variety is why I fell for this brand before the viral products came out.

I am really into orange and berry eye shadows at the moment and it isn't even autumn, crazy!
I do think that these colours can be used all year round and as much as I don't like to admit I have plenty of palettes containing similar shades. When I found the Reloaded Iconic Vitality Palette for only £4 I knew I needed it. It has such a lovely collection of golds,orange, browns and berries. Perfect for so many looks I find myself dipping into it nearly every day.

As for the Conceal and Define concealer that has some serious hype around it, I was interested to know if they hype was real... it is!
I've been after a concealer that actually brightens rather than just covers for awhile, as much as I have my trusted favourites. I wanted something new plus a few of my other concealers have been really drying out my skin lately. I picked up the shade C6.5 it is lighter than my actual skin tone but I wanted to under eyes to stay looking bright and resembling that I've had sleep.  This product is incredible and such a small amount goes so far! It really transforms your face and lasts so well.
For such an affordable price I honestly think this is the best concealer I have used for a very long time!

Have you tested any of these, what do you think?

First impressions of LOTD

I have seen the Brand LOTD (Look of the day) on Instagram a lot lately and I thought I must give them a go. Their clothes are really reasonably priced and when I saw that everything was 60% off I grabbed the opportunity.

I have been struggling to find decent 'basics' recently. The types of tops you can throw on during the weekend and feel 'put together' even though you haven't really tried that hard.
So I saw the T-shirt above and I thought it would be perfect combined with denim shorts.

I managed to get three items for around £16 with delivery so I was very happy with myself.
I chose the Slogan tee with a rose and gold detail. A simple white bardot bodysuit, I am in love with bodysuits at the moment. So easy to style and they seem to keep wobbly bits in place nicely. I needed a white one to go with a couple of pairs of summer trousers.
I am also jumping on the lace bodysuit vibe, so I opted for a cream lace number with halter neck detail.

The delivery came quickly and packaged well. I was very pleased with quality of the T shirt for the price I paid. The medium is a little larger than expected but I am embracing that. I hate being squeezed into clothing! The bardot didn't disappoint either, comfortable and versatile.
Lastly the lace bodysuit is gorgeous, really good quality, I will need to wear something over or under it as I would be flashing to the world if I didn't. The reason I bought it was to wear under a plunge jumpsuit anyway so no problem there.

All in all a very happy customer!

Fabletics update

I am always honest about my opinions on my blog and I feel I need to share the continued story about my Fabletics purchase. As I want to be able to prevent what happened to me happening to others.

As I said in my previous post, I was pretty pleased with the quality of the leggings I had purchased.
Although what I had originally predicted the high waist band became less secure pretty quickly during my dance classes. Which was disappointing but what I was extremely frustrated about was that the following month I had £44 leave my account without my knowledge. Taking the complimentary offer of £24 for two garments automatically signs you up to a subscription that enables the company to take £44 a month to choose items for you. Then you can use the money to buy the items, you can skip a month.
Although as I didn't realise that I had signed up I missed the chance to do this. If you look on the website it is stated about the subscription but I felt it was very easy to over look.
I also found it a little deceiving that I did not receive a confirmation email of signing up to the subscription. I realised that on the order confirmation email in very small writing they had written about the details of the subscription. Again I found this a little sneaky!

When I automatically panicked as I am not sure about other people but I certainly can not justify £44 a month to have leggings picked out for me. I received a reply email to my complaint promptly giving me the unfortunate news that the money they had taken was not refundable. Although I could spend it on leggings I did not want or need. Extremely frustrating!

You can only cancel your subscription via phone call, so the next day I contacted them over the phone. I will say that the gentleman that dealt with my call was very friendly and understanding and he did as I asked very quickly. So that lessened the pain a little.

I have learn't my lesson and in reality I should of read the small print.
I suggest anyone that finds an online offer or advertisement whilst watching telly and it seems like a good deal. PLEASE read all the information first.

Has anything like this happened to you before?
If so how did you resolve it?

I apologise if this post seems a bit of a rant, I just wanted to share my experience.

First Impressions of Fabletics

I have been an actual potato recently.
I am always bad at Easter time who isn't? Although I have had two weeks at home with a puppy and I have just eaten solidly!
So I thought to break this awful food rut I will treat myself to some decent work out leggings.
I had seen Fabletics everywhere at the moment and wanted to take full advantage of the two pairs for £24 offer.

I went for the high waisted plain leggings in PAPAYA which is a bright coral type pink and PWETER
which is a charcoal grey. I was very impressed with the quality of the material and the fact that they are actually high waisted on me. This is normally a massive risk for me as due to my height high waisted can also mean only comes up to your hips! So annoying!
Anyway I was pleased with the length of the leggings and they fit well. They are super tight I mean the booty definitely shows in these. There is no hiding! Although it is in a flattering way.

The only things I would say is that the pink ones are a little see through which is disappointing as I didn't really want to be worried about what type of underwear to wear to gym. Especially as these leggings were meant to be £68! For a price like that you would assume that the material would not be see through at all. Also another high waisted problem is that some trousers that have the large waist band can become stretched and ineffective pretty quickly and they did seem to have the same vibe as I was doing some light exercise. I hope they prove me wrong as the quality, fit and colours of the leggings are lovely.

Have you tried Fabletics, if so what do you think about them?

Making the decision to get a fur baby

Is it just me or do we seem to be having a puppy boom at the moment?
Everyone is welcoming new fur babies into their family and we are no exception. We have always wanted a dog but with my husband's allergies and my OCD we were worried about certain elements of having a puppy. Anyone you ask will say it is not easy and boy are they right!
I know it is meant to be training for a child but babies don't constantly bite and run and try to eat slugs.

I will write another post about how our boy is getting on in more detail. I just wanted to talk about the process of  finding our puppy and why we chose him.

We had particular needs when it came to having a puppy. We needed hypoallergenic with a low to no shedding coat. We came across our 'Chewie' online and we fell in love immediately, reading that he completely fell in line with what we needed was great. He is a Jackapoo and considering he is part toy poodle he has got pretty fast growing legs! He is definitely a terrier and loves to dig.

We booked into visit him the next day and it was a long and slightly stressful journey but so worth it. He stood out from the rest of the litter. He looked nothing like his sisters. He was the only boy and the girls all looked like little cream puffs with black splodges. Gorgeous but Chewie was really something special for us as he was tiny and obviously the cutest. We had a really good vibe from the breeder. The mother and Nanny dog lived together and were deeply loved. All the puppies were confident and comfortable around people. The lady was so helpful and went above and beyond to help us when we decided he was the one for us. We even had pup dates in the following two weeks, prior to picking him up. The mom was not going to be breeded again and she had only mated once before with her choice of dog. Apparently she knew what she wanted in a male and previous suitors had not been good enough.

Our first meeting was so lovely he sat with us and played with us and we just wanted to take him there and then. On the day of collection he was given a piece of blanket that smelt of his family and a teddy he was fond of. He sat in my arms straight away and didn't really understand where we were going. It did break my heart when his mom looked at me in the eyes as if to say "I know what you are doing". He sat with me beautifully the hour journey home.

Now he is definitely comfortable with us, you might say a bit too comfortable!
Have you had any new additions?

Gilbert lodge

We recently went away for a week in the Cornish country side. We have always wanted to move down there and that week really cemented the idea for us. 

It took me awhile to find the type of place we were looking for in our price range. January and February is birthday season in my family so money was a little tight. All we knew is that we wanted a  home from home. 

I tried all the usual comparison sites but nothing was really catching our eye, one evening I found the Gilbert lodge while scrolling through Tripadvisor. I have never booked a holiday straight from their site before so I was slightly wary. Although I was very happy with how quick and easy the process was. As it led me straight onto the lodge's own website and then within a few emails. We were all booked and ready to go. 

The owners of the Gilbert lodge were friendly and gave us a little information pack via email which was helpful. When we arrived we did have a little trouble locating the key but the site's staff sorted us out right a way. We did have a little issue with the heating in the first couple of hours but once again the staff on site were so quick to help that we were happily toasty within a very short space of time.

We absolutely loved our stay at the GilbertLodge. It was everything we wanted, homely and so clean! The sofas and bed were incredibly comfy. There was a basket of books for me to dive into which I thought was a lovely touch. There was also two bathrooms and two bedrooms which was great to have that extra space and facilities. We cooked some nights and had a cheeky fish and chips followed by scones with cream and jam one evening and we were so content. The lodge was very close to the village of Tintagel which is very cute. The local pub had great food and a really friendly atmosphere. Oh and the fudge from the sweet shop was incredible. I bought some as a gift for other people and ended up eating it all! Sorry not sorry! 

The lodge was also not far away from most tourist attractions so we ended up going somewhere new nearly every day which was great. I would really recommend it as we managed to get a great deal and had the most wonderful stay. 

I would love to know your favourite places to visit in Cornwall?

Saying goodbye to being 25

I turned 26 on Wednesday, it wasn't my official birthday due to being a leap year baby but that is a story for another day.

It feels weird being four years off 30 as I have always been one of the youngest out of my friends, I am now slowly realising I have actually turned into a grown up.
It got me thinking about what I have learnt over the last year....

Living in your own place is awesome. 

I moved out around four years ago now but this year I have really felt content in having our own space. I think it has been having a garden and a second room to store my hordes of makeup and my stupid amount of clothes. Just knowing that everything is in it's place really fills me with joy. (That might just be my OCD talking.)
Now that the garden is a little more sorted as well I can't wait to spend time in it and have BBQs galore! If we get a summer that is!

We are planning on buying the place we live in but for now we are happy in our little environment and that is good enough for us at the moment.

Starting to be satisfied with my appearance 

Don't get me wrong this is rare for me but recently I have been looking at myself differently instead of thinking "Omg look at that belly!" or picking on what I don't like I am thinking "well this is me! like it or lump it!" I did the whole January starve myself thing for a bit but who am I kidding?
We have been reducing our processed food consumption and I have been leaning more towards a veggie lifestyle. Which I am actually really enjoying! I grew up in a vegetarian family and I have never eaten beef or lamb so it hasn't been too hard for me. I just need to find a really good chicken alternative and I will be set. Please let me know if you have tried any? I have also found some really good home work out apps too! Which do not take much time but really help.

Friends come and go

This year has definitely been an eye opener to which friendships stick and which do not.
Also to the fact that I am not upset about this anymore.
I feel that the people that make the effort with you, the ones you can really count on.
The ones that in return you would do anything for are the ones that matter.

I have stopped worrying about not having the effort and time given back to me and instead I have focused on putting my time into those friendships that mean the most to me.
As well as finding out that friendships which you think have faded actually were always there waiting to be found again. Not forgetting the new friends made along the way.

Also it is not a case of playing the blame game as we are all guilty of not texting back, or letting some friendships drift when we should be paying attention and asking people how other people are.

A new found motivation and ambition.

I am probably up there with the biggest procrastinators in the world.
For a very long time I have been dreaming about making things happen but putting them off for made up reasons. Any reason I could find really.
Maybe out of fear but in the last couple of months, I have really pushed myself and the benefits are starting to show. I have found improvement that has filled me with such pride. In addition to accomplishing things I didn't think I could. It has lead me to be excited about the future and determined to keep improving and moving upwards.

What have you learnt this year so far?

How to handle the Bridal makeup panic!

A lot of people I have spoken to that are getting married are worried about how they should have their makeup on the big day. I also felt the same when it was my turn.
Wanting to be glam but natural, your best self but not over the top. Who created these rules?! Do what you want! It is YOUR wedding!
I will be honest I went for a couple of store makeup trials and it was an utter disaster. 
I am not sure if I didn't put what I wanted across properly. As deep down I didn't really have a completely clear idea of what I wanted. When you have so many plans and ideas in your head for the wedding in general some things slip under the radar. I did have a million Pinterest pictures of bridal makeup that I had fallen in love with. Without actually thinking about what I would feel comfortable with. I was gaining knowledge of makeup application on other people at the time and I had learnt a lot running up to the wedding. Although I still did not feel comfortable doing my own on the day. 
I wanted that flawless glam but the more trials I had the more I realised that it just wasn't what I felt happy with. 

I found a lovely girl who spent lots of time trying to give me what I had asked for but I did feel better adapting it myself afterwards. I then sent her some photographs on a look I had created myself a couple of days later. After a conversation we both realised that I should just pluck up the courage to do it myself. 

I really feel that the only thing holding me back was that I was scared it wouldn't go to plan on the day. My eyeliner wouldn't be even or something! So I went to a day course in London and I realised that my knowledge was lot better than I originally thought. Which gave me confidence, so I took what I had learnt and had a few practice runs until I felt completely happy with the look.

The day before the wedding I packed every piece of makeup I could find just in case. I had bought a few new treats but I didn't go over board, as I had quite a large collection anyway. 
When the day came I woke up at a silly time and it dawned on me that the only thing I was worried about was that my makeup would not go to plan. So at 7am I sat and did my eye makeup and after that everything else fell into place. By 10am I was ready to get married when the ceremony was at 1pm!
My bridesmaids were completely shocked as they walked in my room in their pj's and I am usually always running out the door last minute. 

From my experience I would say try not to stress about the final makeup look.
The person you are getting married to will be waiting for you and will think you are the most beautiful creature they have ever seen. If you want a professional get a professional, if you want to enhance the makeup you normally wear and don't feel in full control of what you want. 
Take a few lessons, get some tips from friends, family and online.
Try not to get sucked up in Instagram and Pinterest perfection and just do what you feel happy with.
As long as you feel good that is all that matters. If you don't usually wear much makeup then keep it minimal or don't wear any at all! I repeat... the person who you are getting married to is marrying you for who you are and fancies the pants of you! 

Good luck and let me know how it goes? I would love to know ox

Morphe Newbie

I have heard nothing but amazing things about the Morphe eye shadows and brushes.
I was in dyer need of some new good quality eye shadow brushes, we all have those favourites that are dying but we refuse to get rid of them. They needed to go...

So I thought I would go for the Set702 - 12 piece eye-credible set and the 350 - 35 colour Nature Glow eye shadow palette.

The brush set came in such a lovely pouch and when I opened them I had a little scream of happiness. The fact that you get twelve brushes and such a variety for £25 I really think it is great value for money. The set is everything you need to create a professional eye look for any occasion.
There was a little fall out from some of the darker headed brushes which I was a sad about but they haven't done it for awhile so maybe it was just the initial use.

I opted for the 350 palette as I have a massive thing for orange and brown tones at the moment.
This palette has been out for awhile but it stood out to me from the start.
I was so excited when I realised that the pans are huge and the pigment is to die for!
I have not tried the shimmer shades yet but I am eager to give them ago. I have been going for more matte tones recently but when I am in my sparkle mode I will be all over the gold shades for sure.
Again such a good quality palette with shadows that last. I really do think the price is so affordable for these beautiful products.

I do love the fact that the website is so easy to navigate and that they now sell from the UK

What are your favourite Morphe products?

Mandolino Beach

Has January felt like an eternity or is it just me? I am so happy it is February as this is when birthday season begins! As a leap year baby it means you can drag out your birthday all month if your friends and family will let you. I try and make it last as long as possible! 

I am really feeling the need for a holiday and some sunshine. It has reminded me that I didn't share a glorious hidden secret when I went away previously to Benidorm. 

We ate out most days but on our final night we decided we wanted to find something a bit special. 
With some help from internet reviews and a complete detour thanks to yours truly. Who made my mother turn the wrong way as apparently I forgot how to use Google maps! 

We eventually found an absolute gem of an Italian Restaurant called Mandolino Beach hidden away down a tiny back street. 
So much so we nearly walked straight passed it for the second time as we had wanted to go there the day before. 

We had the balcony to ourselves over looking the lapping evening waves on the beach and I had the most delicious Pina Colada. In my opinion it is not a real holiday unless at least one Pina Colada has  been consumed. We opted for pasta and garlic bread, the garlic bread was light and crispy and oh so tasty. The menu was extensive with options to personalise your dish by picking a sauce and toppings and then what style you would like your pasta which I thought was a lovely touch.

My eyes and heart lit up when I spotted green pesto and Parmesan! An all time favourite of mine.
I can honestly say it was one of the best dishes I have ever had. I can only dream of it now.

The staff were so friendly and we really enjoyed their conversation.
It was a perfect end to the holiday and if you happen to be in the old town of Benidorm I whole heartily recommend you try it yourself.

Where are your hidden gems?

No.7 Beautiful Skin

Guess who actually has a skin care routine for the first time ever?.... that would be me!
I am so proud of myself and it seemed to of happened naturally, it was not forced for a change.
I have tried and failed at looking after my skin so many times. I have every lotion and potion under the sun but it is rare that I find one that really stands out or does not give me an allergic reaction. I have to be really careful with my skin as it is so sensitive!

I was lucky enough to be given the No.7 Beautiful skin set for Christmas. I must admit I have never really used the brand before. I like the fact that this set has everything you need in one.
I tested each one through out the day after Christmas and fell in love with the products. The fact that my face did not turn into a beetroot and become all itchy was a welcome relief as I seem to be allergic to pretty much everything!

There is a part of the month were my skin goes nuts and I break out a lot, this time around using these products my skin stayed beautifully clear. I hate the fact that the cold weather really effects my skin usually, although having a stable routine seemed to protect my skin. This range is especially for dry skin which mine can be. The micellar water removes makeup so effortlessly and it feels weightless. As well as the day and night creams are so light and leave your skin smooth and glorious!
I have not tried the mask yet but I am really looking forward to it with a self pamper evening!

I have always been told by the strong ladies in my family to cleanse, tone and moisturise from a very young age but with skin care I can be super lazy. This set seems to have really gave me a kick up the back side and the travel size products make it so easy to pop in your bag when your not going to be at home. Perfect!

Have you got a skin care holy grail?  I would love to know what they are!

Revlon Perfectionist 2 in 1 Hair Dryer review

Hate drying your hair? Me too!
I have always had a hatred for the process of washing and drying my hair. I am blessed with thick hair. It is so time consuming that I need to give myself a little pep talk before I begin the lengthy chore.

If you feel the same then I may have found a life saver.
I had been looking at hair tools to make drying my hair easier when I came across the Revlon Perfectionist 2 in 1 Hair Dryer.

This beauty combines a powerful hair dryer with a paddle brush so you can dry sections easily and very quickly! Which for me is a miracle!
It comes with the usual warm, hot and cool settings that you would find on a hair dryer.
It gets rid of tangles and leaves your hair silky smooth with Ionic technology. It seems to protect my hair from that hair dryer frizz that I am cursed with.
I honestly felt like I had just left the hair dressers after a blow dry.
I do find that after having my hair dried in a salon. My hair seems a little flat and it did seem to have the same effect after using the styler. Although with a little hair product and a bit of a boost with a comb I had the style I prefer.

I really feel like this is going to change my routine for the better!
