Wish Bits and bobs

You know and I know that when you buy from wish you really dunno what your getting until it arrives…

Sometimes they’ve sent the wrong thing out (there’s no option for that item so it’s pot luck out of the ones in that description … A Wait and see)

But I thought I’d show you the things I got from there and I like 😊

Love me a phone case that not everyone else is going to have so these two are cool because I love watermelons so these were actually FREE so it was just £1 for postage.

I mean who doesn’t want some pretty pens. So these are all different colours. The collection of pens are gel and different colours and the flamingo pen is like biro. Just paying postage for these too which is just great.

This was my first purchase and yes I miss my long hair terribly.

The Tshirt was a bit tight fitting around my derriere so I cut it into a cropped tee and wore a strappy top underneath. Clothes from a different country like China you never know the fit so it’s a take a risk and hope for the best.

These ear pods I was expecting to be piss poor quality and a waste of £4 and £3 delivery but they have proved themselves and I reckon are up there with apple, obviously the sound quality is not as crisp but if you just want them for general use then they are fab and come in black, white and rose gold.

Lastly a pill box. I always need to take some tablets throughout the day and taking all the boxes can be bulky so just putting what I need in this little cute flamingo box is ideal. I believe it was FREE and £1 for postage.

So my advice is have a nose and take the plunge for a couple of quid.

The benefits of a facial roller

For a few months I just kept seeing so many influencers and YouTubers using these facial rollers and I caved in and thought I want to try one they look fun.

So I went and found myself one on my old trusty amazon

Mine is a Rose Quartz one, you can get Jade ones that are green and apparently they work differently.

A Jade roller revitalises the skin, wakes it up, makes your sluggish skin into stunning skin

A Rose Quartz roller on the other hand is full of minerals such as silcium, magnesium and Iron.

🌺 The silcium (silica) helps the elasticity in your skin

🌺 The magnesium helps relieve muscle spasms and helps headaches and sinus problems

🌺 The Iron helps regulate blood circulation and eliminates fatigue

So you can see why I chose the Rose Quartz over the Jade.

I guess the Jade one could be used in the morning and the Rose Quartz for the evening.

I find putting mine in the fridge adds a nice cooling effect to the skin.

Here’s the link to mine (I’m not sponsored or affiliated I just think it’s a fab product)

ROSE QUARTZ FACIAL ROLLER

Have any of you used one of these and have you seen any benefits from it?

Skincare faves

My skin is sensitive, dry and prone to spots so I need to pay attention to all the goings on of my face.

Olay has me covered with these 3 and it didn’t leave me out of pocket.

I’m pretty sure it was a 3 for 2 at boots so it was a win win all round.

At night I will use the beauty fluid to give my skin just enough moisture but not too much that it gets on my pillow.

Then in the morning I use my olay daily facials as they get off any dirt from overnight and I feel they help get rid of my dry areas in the process.

Then before I do my make up I use the day cream. It also acts as a primer too so it’s a perfect base for my foundation.

The worst thing I get if I don’t prep my skin before make up is dry skin underneath my foundation and nothing looks worse than that when every other part of your made up face looks lovely.

Cover me up

Don’t you hate it when you wake up and you have dark circles through lack of sleep or that unwanted spot that just lands on your face. I know there are worst things in life, but it’ll make you feel so much more confident if you can conceal them.

So I’ve come up with 4 concealers that are very much raved about and I also have some tips to help

COLLECTION LASTING PERFECTION CONCEALER

At £4.19 this is the cheapest one I’m going to mention. You can find it at Boots and Superdrug It really does help conceal the dark circles and definitely helped cover redness but not my spots. Not to say it won’t help yours. It comes in a range of shades too.

REVOLUTION CONCEAL AND DEFINE CONCEALER

This one is a dupe for another one I’m going to mention that’s a bit pricey, this one is a fraction of the price at £5 from either Superdrug or Beauty Bay. It gives a full coverage which I like. You can get these in two different sizes as well if you tend to use a lot of concealer.

L’ORÉAL INFAILLABLE MORE THAN CONCEALER

This one is new out and I’ve been using it for about a month and I don’t have any intention of switching back. It has concealed my dark circles, my troublesome spots and any redness I get. It is £9.99 but I’d rather spend a tiny bit more to get a good result and fingers crossed it’ll last a few months.

TARTE SHAPE TAPE

At a steep £23. 00 the Tarte Shape Tape concealer does all the revolution concealer does but with a brand which all products come with a hefty price tag. I believe you can only get Tarte from America so people are selling them for £31.00 on Ebay. You’re silly if you wanna spend that and you don’t even know if it’s a knock off.

Those colour correction sets that come with all those different colours in them have uses for different skin complaints so I’ve found this down below that explains which colour helps what.

Also here is the places to apply your concealer to get the best results.

I also put a stripe down my nose only because I find if I don’t my foundation rubs off.

I hope you found this post informative and let me know if you have tried any others I haven’t named and you think they are worth a try.

Head in a book

Once i get stuck into a good book there’s no pulling me away from it. I don’t tend to read loads of books simply because…The problem is trying to get stuck in to one in the first place.

So i guess i wanna try set myself a goal of reading 1 self help book a month and one that will entertain me or have me weeping.

So here is my first two

Has an interesting title. Lets hope its a good read.

I know Louise Hay books are loved the world over so i look forward to hopefully falling in love with it too.

In a months time I’ll let you know how i got on and will give a little review too.

Give me a kick up the bum, i need it.

GLAMOUR BEAUTY CLUB – BEAUTY PRODUCT REVIEWS

About 6 months ago i had no idea about the glamour beauty club. I saw it on one of my blogger friends instagram and thought I’d probably get rejected from applying because i had only 500 followers on there.

Never think that way because i have been sent about 5 or 6 things so far from the glamour beauty club such as

  • Hawaiian aftersun
  • Wilkinsons sword shaver
  • Givenchy mini mascara and tester perfume
  • L’ocitane face oil
  • Maybelline lipstick

As you can see they send high end as well as drug store brands too.

The best thing about it is these things you get sent aren’t even out in the shops or online yet so you are chosen to try and give your opinion on the product.

If you are interested in this then don’t hesitate in being part of the gang.

Heres where to click you will thank me.

Glamour Beauty Club Website

Enjoy your beauty bits and if you reply to the email with your thoughts too it’ll let them know you still want to receive products from them in the future.

Stand out this summer

We are so lucky to have this lovely sunshine in the UK and we all love to visit the beach to make the most of it, and top up our tans.

I bring you this beautiful Peacock paradise designer swimsuit by Delores Cortes which i was kindly sent to feature on my social media platforms from ukswimwear

It is a top Spanish brand in swimwear and to give you my honest opinion i wouldn’t usually pick such a colourful costume. When i saw this one on the website i thought it stood out and would go really nice with my hair colour and my skin tone. I wasn’t wrong. I really like how it looks.

I wanted something i could feel comfortable in as i spend most of the time in a wheelchair and this one doesn’t disappoint. It’s so very well made. As you can see it’s low at the back, i myself have a few lumps and bumps here and there but it holds you in all in the right places.

Bear in mind it comes up small as it comes from Spain and is different sizing to the UK.

I am usually a size 12 but decided to go for a 14 just to be on the safe side and it fits a treat.

I definitely recommend having a nose on the ukswimwear website as there are swimming costumes to suit any budget. They do bikinis, kaftans and cover-ups too.

But please remember a swimsuit isn’t just for the summer it’s for all year round.
