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!

what's in Poppy's Easter basket | 2018 | toddler Easter treats |

Easter goodies for my Toddler 

Always another holiday isn't there. I like to make Poppy a box for each special occasion throughout the year; Christmas eve box, Halloween trick or treat bag and Easter is no exception. This Easter i have gone for the more traditional items like my mum used to get us when we were little; books, stickers, chocolate egg, etc... I've not gone as over the the top as I usually do. We are also buying the stuff we know Poppy is really interested in, her favourite characters and bits she can interact with us on as well

The items in the box are not to have in one go, half of this is being used for her Easter egg hunt in the garden. We have gone for the play/learning items this year, she loves books at the moment and we read to her every night. As she enjoys it so much i decided to get her The Gruffalo £5.99 from Waterstones and the Peter rabbit sticker activity book £2 from the Works.

A pack of Bunny crayons £1 from Poundland, Peppa pig play cards £2 fro…

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.


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 so dont throw away b…
