Blog event : The Body Shop Event

Last saturday, I attended an event held at the body shop in Newport on the isle of Wight.
It was to celebrate the launch of the new refit for the store. They had a meet and greet and make up tutorial session With @sailorsarah a fellow fashion blogger from the isle of wight.

The make up assistant roxy applied these amazing  products on Sara ; face toner, moisturiser and  she then went onto products that would work well with redness, or blemishes to the skin. (all products can be used on any skin types).
Sara was keen to try out new products, she also braved wearing pink eyeshadow (as she is well known for her dark colours!) Her own mum said how nice it is to see her wearing colour  hahaha.

Get the look:
Eyes-Shimmer cube palette 26 hot pink £16 
Cheeks-honey bronze bronzing powder £13
Blusher-All in one check colour bubblegum £8 
Foundation- all in one face base £14 
Lashes-Super volume mascara £10
Tea tree flawless bb cream £8 
Lighting touch universal radiance £14 
Lips-Colour crush lipstick passionate pink £10 
Vitamin c skin revivar £15 

 While at the event I ended up bumping into old school friends I hadnt seen in years! So it was lovely to catch up at such a chilled and relaxing event. The body shop girls also put together a collection of cupcakes and yummy ice tea shots for the event to raise money for

Once the MUA finished the makeup tutorial we had a look around at the new green tea range, where we were kindly treated to a hand massage with these new products; Fuji green tea body scrub and Fuji green tea body sorbet. The texture of the body scrub was very different to what I was expecting, It was light & silky with a fresh tingly feel to it. Once applied you remove the access to apply the sorbet. Again I was expecting this to be a heavy sorbet but it was so light and cooling. The difference between each arm was amazing, one was left soft and fresh while  the other not so pampered!

How to Declutter your Home and Keep it that Way

Time to declutter What helps me destress, be productive and keep myself organised is getting rid of all the bits and bobs i keep laying around the house. Yes, that drawer full of crap and all the kids toys that keep mounting up after Christmas and birthdays. I start with 4 bags; charity, selling, friends/family and bin. You don't have to do all of these in one day, pick a room or an area for one afternoon while the baby sleeps and the toddler is settled with snacks and a colouring book and get busy. *Rooms* Bathroom- the cabinets, products you dont use or are out of date, bath toys, etc... Kitchen- food packaging, out of date products, pots and pans you don't use or need to replace Living room- the mounting of paper work hidden in drawers, kids toys, shoes, etc... Dining room- ( same as above) Bedroom- clothes you don't wear, brought but never used, old bed, bedroom drawers and tables, worn out shoes (good quality shoes can be repaired fairly cheaply s

Money saving Hacks | Christmas | 2020 edition |

It's that time of the year...   Remembering all the kids Christmas activities, nursery and school nativity plays, Christmas gift shopping, scheduling friends and family to come over during the holidays, teacher gifts, phonics, cooking the Turkey....   1- Plan Christmas a year to 6 months in advance  I know this sounds nuts but honestly knowing what is happening and who you're visiting makes it a lot easier and less stressful.  2- Buy gifts in the boxing day and January sales. Buy and stock up throughout the year on all the sales. It's amazing how much money you can save by doing this. I manage to save up to £200/£300 by doing this each year.  3- The things you don't think of buying in those sales. Wrapping paper, christmas cards, tape, gift tags, gift bags, Christmas arts and crafts for the kids, stickers, advent calendars (the non-chocolate ones) I brought the Harry Potter charms bracelet advent calendar and frozen 2 advent calendar in Sainsburys

5 creative ways to make extra money

1- sell unwanted items Is it time to do a clear out? Need a little extra money? Sell those trousers you've not worn in 3 months and sell the dress you've only worn twice.  Make sure all items are washed, no marks and no rips etc... these are all things that will help you in the selling process. Take lots of photos of the items, compare on other selling sites to make sure you check out your competitors. Good places to sell are facebook pages, Ebay, depop, Amazon, car boot sale and friends or family  2- creative skills  Are you creative with woodwork, clay, jewellery making, etc... if so put these hobbies into a place online and sell them! Don't forget to charge for materials, hours per day, time to take photos and uploading,etc. 3- teach another language  If you have a second language then good on you, another skill to write down on your cv! Launch a new website of what you can provide, zoom language classes, work sheets, online courses, etc. Make it clear on what you can pr
