Go Au Natural with some natural skincare

Wow I am totally blown away by the following products I had as a birthday present from my sister in law.

I had never really used products that were so natural and organic, I just would go for a scent or what the product said it did and that was it.

This wild rose beauty balm is truly a miracle in a little jar.

It acts as a moisturiser on those dry spots and you can also use it to remove your make up at the end of the day. The big plus is that it smells absolutely gorgeous.

Next is this reviving white tea face mask that isn’t too heavy on the skin and leaves a fresh and clean feel. I love it already.

Who doesn’t love a facial mist? This is in the same scent as above. When you just want your skin to be hydrated this one will have your back… Well your face technically.

If you suffer with the odd anxious moment, then this little roll on will come to your rescue. It has lavender in it which is relaxing, as you all know. Well if you didn’t you do now.

Before you nod off I really do rate this beauty sleep serum that doesn’t leave a sticky residue or anything just helps aid your sleep and makes your skin fabulous at the same time.

It all comes in this lovely little bag that you can either keep them all in or reuse it for something else. Think it’s perfect for travelling.

You’ll always get a leaflet telling you all about the product itself which I think is very useful.

Dating Disaster

Have you ever been on a date and the person you thought you been talking to was just your type.

Whether you met them on a drunken night out and have arranged a first date via text or you have been online dating.

Then you meet up with them and they are nothing like you remember and or look nothing like their picture.

You get there and they are sat there smiling and you walk in like….

When you match with someone online or their profile seems appealing, so messages are exchanged and you start to find out about this person who is very easy on the eye.

Thing is, when you eventually pluck up courage to meet them it really doesn’t match up they don’t look like their photos and they were telling you a load of bull just to get a date…

I myself have been in some situations just like these and you just wanna run back out the door.

Some of you do and don’t look back, most of us would just sit down and feel so awkward for the duration.

I tell you if it was me I’d order my food and when it came out I’d have to do this to him

Dating can be so hard, and not knowing what you are letting yourself get into is kind of scary.

So my advice is… If you are going to date online or you’re just exchanging texts only tell them minimal details, don’t open your heart too much as you know it’ll get hurt. If you do want to meet them… Please take a friend and make sure they are in sight so you can leave swiftly if you feel really uncomfortable.

Health update

Thought it had been a while since I did one of these updates on my health. So here’s the rundown.

ANXIETY

My appears from nowhere, for no rhyme or reason at the moment.

I get a tight chest, my thoughts are all over the place, I feel lightheaded and think I’m going to faint. The anxiety relievers I use are a stress ball type thing if it’s within reach at the time or the apps I’ve downloaded on my phone especially for anxiety. I’ll let you know them in a later post.

If I’m near my bed I lie down and listen to music or a guided meditation. It does help alot at the time.

🦄

UROSTOMY

It was going swimmingly, no problems as such and then it started leaking. So bag changes were and still are a bit of a performance.

My kidneys seem to be doing overdrive, I have an ultrasound at the end of the month so I’ll know more about that then.

I have to have another major op on my skin and stoma in the next 4 months to sort the problems out.

I was iron deficient but from last test I’m OK but still gotta take these horrible tablets.

🦄

M.E

It’s not been too bad actually I do however find myself going off to bed early like half 7 at night some evenings.

My voice goes and my voice gets sore when my body thinks I’ve overdone it. Some days I feel exhausted even after 8 hours sleep. But I find a happy medium most of the time where I can have a nap if needs be or just a lie down.

🦄

FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGICAL DISORDER

My mobility is very up and down, when my body cooperates its good when it doesn’t I have to either use my wheelchair all the time or go into hospital if it is a real bad episode. We have had our shower adapted, so showering is much easier. Before we had a tiny closed in cubicle now it’s a lovely big wet room.

Most days my body is aching. I use wheat bags or a hot water bottle as I find heat it a great healer.

I wish I could have someone on tap for massage because I find that relieves the aches too. I want a new matteress one that your body just molds into, but until I’ve had my op it’s on hold.

🦄

So there you are the life of a chronically ill peach.

But blogging keeps me going and writing is my passion so I won’t stop.

Storytime Sunday

Take a seat I’m going to tell you a story.

So I’m nearly 34 and I’ll tell you something… Even though I am not where I expected to be or dreamt of being… I have been on one hell of a journey…and it has made me the person I am today.

❤️

I have suffered abuse/bullying its made me be more aware.

❤️

I’ve had my heart broken it’s taught me it mends within time.

♥️

I have stumbled into poor health, it makes me stronger and fight harder.

❤️

I had a crush on someone of the same sex. It taught me that gender doesn’t matter.

❤️

I have accomplished things in life which shows me to never give up on something you want.

♥️

I have witnessed divorce with my parents it’s taught me that love doesn’t always last forever.

❤️

I’ve met people from all walks of life and it’s made me realise that everyone has a story and no two stories will ever be the same.

That’s my little Sunday storytime. Thanks for stopping by.

Fierce Female Friday Week 4

Happy Friday my lovelies. This is last week of Fierce Female Friday. Today we have the lovely Chanelle.

Chanelle is a small town blogger from New Zealand who tends to blog mostly about beauty and lifestyle. She blogs to express her passion for makeup and enjoys interacting with other bloggers.

Here are the Q and A’s

1. What makes you feel powerful?

I feel powerful when I’m able to help someone and share knowledge. Also, wearing bright fuchsia lipstick makes me feel happy and confident – it’s MY colour!

2. What 3 strong women do you look up to?

1. My mum – I am who I am mostly because of her. She has taught me important lessons and has had to go through a lot in life. She brought up two children on her own which can’t have been easy.

2. Shania Twain – I have listened to Shania’s music since I was a young girl. Music makes me happiest and it was an honour to be at Shania’s first ever New Zealand show in 2018 (she even touched my hand). Her life hasn’t always been easy and her attitude to keep fighting and keep going is inspirational.

3. Cheating a little here but Kylie and Dannii Minogue – I cant pick a favourite and I look up to them both! They are proof that hard work and determination will get you far. They always bounce back when faced with adversity.

2.What advice would you give to someone needing to find their inner fierceness?

Really get to know yourself and who you are, what you like, what you don’t like etc. – this shows you have a standard and if people come along and try and walk over you and make you change they won’t be able to. Trust your gut instinct. Don’t be afraid to spend time alone. Know that it’s ok not to do what everyone else does. Most importantly, be kind to yourself!

I have really enjoyed this months series of Feirce women, I hope you have too.

Hello October my old friend

I’ve waited for you all year October.

I love October because….

  • It is now officially autumn
  • It gets darker sooner so can get all snuggled up under fluffy blankets.
  • It’s my birthday in this month
  • Halloween… When not all the trick or treaters don’t come and there’s sweets left over.

It also not the best month for one reason: I lost my brother last year. So it’s always going to be a little bit sad. But I like to remember the happy times I had with him.

What’s your favourite month and why?
