I like most things with quotes on it as I think it’s really expressive and can say exactly what you are thinking without speaking a word.
Love a good mug so these are a few I’ve picked that stood out to me.
You like making statements with your makeup so why not with a make up bag and a witty quote on it.
The collection here of mugs and makeup bags are positive and quirky. Nothing wrong with plain but standing out in the crowd is loads more fun.
If you have been a reader of my blog for a while you will know that my skin is prone to spots. I dunno if it’s because I started puberty early but all these years later and I still get these pesky buggers on my face.
So I thought I’m going to make a box for when my skin is bad and then don’t have to hunt for all the products, they’ll all be in one place.
Using an old box from Birchbox and turned it upside down so the names on the bottom and filled it with the following
The Tea Tree anti imperfection daily solution which has a pipette ( like those things you used in chemistry at school) you just apply it to the spots before bed and it will help diminish the redness of them.
The anti imperfection night mask works like a dream. I have been using it this month on my face which chose to have a major break out. I’ve had it for ages and never used it. I can say my spots are nearly gone in 4 days of usage.
I love it when spot treatments come in travel sizes cos you can just put them in your handbag and off you go.
The Sebamed is really good if you need to get the oil on your face and under control. Not used it a great deal but definitely worth getting.
You all know that Dermalogica is a worldwide favourite for skincare and this little beauty is great for when you get hormonal spots, it seems to help them alot.
This Laidbare is similar to the Sebamed but is more of a cream. It’s specially formulated for oily to combo skin. Use it sparingly and it’ll last a long time.
Sudocrem has to be my absolute favourite for clearing up my spots. I dunno what’s in it but it works wonders and is only a couple of pounds.
I have only just added these patches and nose strips from Patchology to my box and not used them yet but I have read good things about them so I hope it’s true.
Why not make yourself a special box
Sorry had to include that gif in… That was back in my youth so its kind of fitting for todays post. I thought I’d have a look back at the things that remind me of my youth…
These shoes were what were in fashion, I had all three at some point in the late 90’s and the early noughties.
I also owned a pair of pink flared cords quite similar to these Kate Spade ones. I definitely stood out like a sore thumb.
I enjoyed going to gymnastics, so once you mastered the bench turned upside down you were allowed on the balance beam 🙈
My make up bag had these two in and I’m pretty sure I was patchy, and orange and the blemishes were not concealed. But hey we learn by our mistakes
Finally these two mags. What sex education we weren’t getting in school we sure were getting them in here. I believe most of us 16 year old girls would flick through the pages of more to see what sex position of the fortnight was. Ha ha.
Feel free to share something that reminds you of your school days as a teenager.
For the past 3 months I have been subscribed to Latest in beauty
Which is not like any normal subscription box you get to pick the products that you want to receive.
So here’s my video I recorded yesterday when it came via Mr Postie
Let me know what you think and also do you get a subscription box each month, I’d love to know.
The last Favourites of the year. I really do like looking at all the previous months as well and see what made me happy.
I’ll leave the previous 11 at the bottom of this post if you want to have a nosey.
Here is some of Decembers bits that have made me happy.
ALIEN PERFUME DEODORANT
I never knew that I could get my favourite perfume in a deodorant/body spray until I was nosing on the perfume shop website and there it was. For 100ml it’s just perfect to fit inside a handbag. Smells beautiful. I am forever getting compliments on the scent, so it’s a no brainer to at least go get a spray of it yourself at your local chemist.
Most of you would’ve seen me wearing a couple of wigs as I’m a bit fed up of the length it is so until it’s a bob style I’ll be wearing one of my 3 wigs. This is the one I love at the moment, it is very me as I love pink.
I have had an iPad for a year or so now, but I now have a pencil I can use to draw on it, a cheaper one than the Apple Pencil so I needed a cover that would keep it with the iPad so this is it. It’s very girly and practical. I love it.
DIARY AND JOURNAL
Both of these are from Paperchase, one was a gift (the 5 mins before bed) and then i bought the pink one (one day one question). I love a diary/journal to write in…it’s just remembering to do it everyday. So these will be in eyeshot so I make them a habit to do.
These have always been the ones I reach for out of all the Haribo sweets. But it’s been about 20 years that I’ve been calling them Tangfantastics until a few days ago I spotted its Tanfastics 🙈
I heard this song on the radio one evening in bed and thought it was so lovely. The original is of course great but I thought Celine Dions voice was so pure.
This is a quote to remind all that the best thing you need to try and be is yourself.
ALL MY FAVOURITES FROM 2019

Monthly favourites August
what’s been your favourite thing throughout December…other than Christmas?
Who doesn’t love some festive nails…so I have included just a few that you can either get your nail technician to do or if you want to get creative, try them yourself.
Me personally I have naturally long nails so never go to a salon to have them done, and I only wish I had two steady hands instead of just the one 🙈
Happy Monday and I hope your as organised as you can be. There’s still 2 weeks yet.
I was looking through some old photos of myself and it seems that the fringe has been a love hate relationship.
However I wanted to look at the ones of me with longer hair with one so I can decide what I’m going to do with my mop once it gets to that length.
So this is 2008 and I think that a boyfriend I was with at the time saw a old pic of me with a fringe and said I looked ‘hot’ with one so I went and got one, safe to say when he dumped me I pinned it back and grew it out 🙈
This next one was 2014. I had grown my bob that was blonde to above my shoulders and thought I’d dye it brown and bring back the fringe. I think in this pic I look younger than I did in the first. I think I got fed up of getting it trimmed and it went…again.
This is me today 2019 for future readers. This is a £20 amazon wig. I’m actually really digging it. It’s very close to natural colour so I can dream of when it’s this length. I may brave it and wear it out, well my theory is its gonna keep my ears warm in the winter.
Have you had any hairstyles that just keep creeping back in?
