Review | Champneys Summer Dream Rewarding Salt Scrub


Champneys Summer Dream Rewarding Salt Scrub

We are well into Spring now and if you are in the mood for some pampering then I would definitely recommend giving your skin a treat with the Champneys Summer Dream Rewarding Salt Scrub. 

Not only is the baby pink packaging adorable with 'Well Earned Treat' scrolled over the lid in swirly writing but this product smells amazing. It's literally like Summer in a pot! This thick salt scrub is bursting with fruit infusions including peach, mango, orange and passion fruit with a hint of sandalwood. The result of this combination is a delicious fragrance.

To use this salt scrub scoop a generous amount into your palms and apply to the skin in circular motions, paying particular attention to more troublesome areas such as the elbows, knees and ankles which often suffer from dryness. After use rinse well with warm water and your skin is fresh, clean and ready for Summer! You will also notice a subtle hint of the scent linger on your skin for a short time after which I really like.

Exfoliation is beneficial as it keeps the skin fresh and healthy by removing dead skin cells from the surface. The process of cell regeneration is something the body also does naturally but it slows as we age so as you get older it becomes more and more important to give your skin a helping hand. Exfoliating will make your skin look less dull and help prevent an excess of oil, clogged pores, dry, rough skin, blemishes and acne because it prevents the build up of dead skin cells. This is it particularly important to do before applying fake tan as it prevents a streaky/patchy result.

I've been really impressed with this product, not only does it smell amazing but it's a good strong scrub that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin at all. I would even go as far as saying this is the best body exfoliator product I have used. Needless to say I will definitely be re-purchasing this!

If you want to try to Champneys Summer Dream Rewarding Salt Scrub you can purchase it from Boots for £10.00.

Review | Lush Beautiful Shower Gel


Lush Beautiful Shower Gel

It's been a while since a properly reviewed any products on my blog but that doesn't mean I haven't been enjoying Lush products as always. One of the most recent products I have tried is the aptly named 'Beautiful' Shower Gel and it's a good one.

'Beautiful' is a very pretty rich orange/yellow shower gel which has flecks of pretty glitter dotted throughout it. They are so fine they give that extra bit of sparkle which makes this product feel extra special without them being overpowering and leaving you looking like a disco ball (they leave no shimmer at all). Perfect for brightening up those early mornings!

The texture of this shower gel is very thick so you only need to use a little at a time to get a good lather and it smells delicious. The mixture of fresh peach juice, dried apricots and osmanthus absolute creates a sweet yet fresh and slightly floral scent which is just perfect for Spring and Summer!

My friend kindly bought me this shower gel as a gift and I'm so pleased she introduced me to it as it's lovely. It makes a nice alternative to my old favourite Snow Fairy and I would definitely repurchase it.

If you want to purchase the Lush Beautiful Shower gel it is available in Lush stores for a variety of prices depending on the price. The one I have photographed here is the medium size and is £9.75.

Lifestyle | Our Fairytale Wedding - Part 1


Kimberley and Simon's Wedding

As any regular readers of my blog or Twitter followers will be aware I got married on 19th September 2015. During the months leading up to then from time to time I posted some updates on my wedding planning progress whilst trying to reveal as little of the details as possible due to family and friends reading my blog!

Now that the wedding is over I can finally reveal all the secrets as well as a full account of the day starting with some taster pictures in this blog post!  I really hope you enjoy looking at them at taking a peak at our special day. The theme was 'fairytale' but with hints of it rather than a very intense theme and everything was very traditional. Our ceremony was in a Chapel and then we moved onto a well known castle which was absolutely beautiful. I definitely felt like a princess for the day!

Lifestyle | Life Update - I'm Back!


Life Update

Hello Everyone! It's been a while!! I just wanted to write a little blog post on a life update as things have been very quiet on the blog/you tube front over the past few months so I wanted to let you know why and what I've been up to. I definitely plan for this post to be a kick off for my return to the blogging world as believe me I have missed it a lot! At the moment I won't be going back to blogging daily though, as I just don't have time for that at the moment boooo!

Anyway, what have I been up to over the past six months? I got married on 19th September which was the most amazing day. Once the professional photo's are ready with the copyright on it from the photographer I will share them with you along with a full account of our day. From start to finish it was definitely the dream fairytale wedding we had always wanted and it was brilliant to see everything come together and run smoothly! That is one of the reasons for my lack of blogging, in the run up to the wedding I was really struggling to juggle working full time, wedding planning and blogging so unfortunately the latter had go on the back burner for a bit. 

After going to the beautiful Barbados on our Honeymoon I had planned to pick things up again as normal but unfortunately I was poorly around a week after getting back and that continued into this year. It turns out I was allergic to a plug in air freshener but it took a long time to work that out! It was causing me chest pains, a constant sore throat and terrible cough so as you can imagine I really wasn't up to much!

During that time, early January to be exact I also got a promotion at work so I'm now officially a manager! I had actually been doing the role for two years already but it took a while for everything to be officially recognised so it's great that's finally happened.

That's all for today's short and sweet post but watch this space for some more over the coming weeks. To start with I plan on blogging around 2-3 times a week.

How have you all been?
