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.

What makes you feel confident and sexy?

In your bedroom whether it’s just you or you have the company of someone else too, don’t you like to feel confident and sexy yet comfortable at the same time?

I know i do.

Well i was approached by a lovely lady from UK LINGERIE and she asked if i would like to pick out a few bits from their website.

Being a bit curvy i wanted something that would compliment me but look sensual and pretty at the same time.

You would never know i have a huge surgery scar because the knickers are concealing it so well. The bra is so comfortable and gives enough cleavage without being too over the top, but to be fair i don’t have much always.

I am due to have a urostomy bag in the upcoming months and i no doubt will still feel amazing in these shorts plus supporting a bag too. This is the lepel fiore black and gold padded bra and the lepel fiore black and gold shorts

I also thought i don’t have any nice pyjamas that could double up as loungewear, so that’s what i went in search of and then i found these beauties.

These are the Dreamgirl off the shoulder pj set

They are the softest pair of pyjamas I’ve ever come across.

I have pulled the top up a bit so you could see the waistband on the bottoms. I’m a complete sucker for pink as you know but the bit of lace detailing just makes them even more lovely.

The off the shoulder look gives a bit of a sensual look about them.

I got these in a size 12 and they fit like a glove. My bra was also in my normal bra size so they really are true to my size.

I will definitely be purchasing fromUK LINGERIE in the future and a few of my friends have said they will too which is great.

I hope you enjoyed reading and I’ll see you in my next post.

Are they fabulous or hideous – FASHION TALK

I was browsing on good old ASOS and if you didn’t know this you will now… when online shopping I put pink in the search but no matter what site I’m shopping on. I guess I’m that person that’s never grown out of the obsession with the colour pink.

So here’s the thing, in the summery months I fancy standing out a bit, you know making a statement. So I thought let’s have a look on ASOS at their trainers and you guessed it in the colour pink.

Here is my findings

FILA PINK DISRUPTOR II PREMIUM TRAINERS

these I really can’t decide if I think they are ugly or kinda cool… they are £85.00 I would definitely stand out in a pair of these.

BUFFALO LONDON FLATFORM CHUNKY TRAINERS IN PINK

I had a pair of these in black when I was 18 and wore them all the time. I remember they were £89.00 and I’d spent my birthday money on them. I am shocked at the price now. They have doubled to £180. I do love the colour but I wouldn’t ever spend that much on a pair of trainers.

NIKE WHITE AND PINK AIR MAX 95 TRAINERS

Out of all the trainers I’ve stumbled across these ones would be the ones I’d get…if I went to the gym of course or ran miles and miles. Unfortunately I can’t justify spending £130.00 when I won’t be walking in them. They’d just be looking pretty in my wheelchair.

CONVERSE X HELLO KITTY ONE STAR TRAINERS

Maybe if I was 10 years younger I would possibly buy these Hello Kitty themed converse trainers but I’m in my 30s I don’t think I would look very grown up in them. They are quite a reasonable price at £56.00. Maybe if the cat was off the back I may of bought them.

VANS EXCLUSIVE RED AND PINK CHECKERBOARD SLIP ON TRAINERS

These I totally dig but unfortunately at the mo they don’t have them in my size only an 8 or 9 and I’m a 5.5 so I’ll have to keep nosing. Think they must be in the sale as they are £30.00 so I won’t hold my breath.

I will be trying to include a bit more fashion because after all it’s what we wear 99% of the time when we aren’t naked 🙈

Hope you enjoyed

Until next time

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.

The Body Shop Treats

Where i live we have a outlet store of The Body Shop. I didn’t actually know until i asked the other day that if they aren’t a full price store it will take 18 months to 2 years to get the stock that’s a new range for instance. I think that’s shocking.

Anyways, i was having a quick nosey round a few shops before my hospital app last Thursday and thought oooo lets have a nosey round The Body shop and here are the few goodies i picked up.

Ok, anybody who doesn’t like the smell of banana this wont interest you. They have a new banana range with Shampoo, conditioners, body yogurts and body butters. I went for two lots of the body butter. They were £6 each and small enough to put in your handbag.

In this hot weather anything sprayed on your face is refreshing. I picked this strawberry face mist up and it smells bloody beautiful. It’s mini so you can fit it in your pocket if needs be. If they ever bring out a bigger one i am purchasing it. Again this was £6. So kind to your purse.

Lastly i was informed i could pick up something for free on the table to the side of the till. So i looked though the different scents of the hand cream and this Almond milk and honey took my fancy. You literally only need the smallest bit to go a long way. It’s so moisturising and will last forever, i mean a long time.

There you go there were my little treats to myself.

What’s your favourite product from The Body Shop?

Foundation Fails

I know I’m not on my own in this.

Trying to find the ‘Perfect’ foundation. The one that’s going to look like your 2nd skin and hide any impurities. Well, I went on the hunt about 4 months ago and here are the ones that have been complete foundation failures for me. They are all the same shade may I add which is Ivory…cos I’m super pale.

true match

I started using True Match quite a few years ago. I didn’t have the best coverage with it. The colour was rather pinky and didn’t stay put all day. Nothing is worse than having to reapply. So I decided to add one to mix together…

I thought if I blended Revlon Colorstay with the True Match then maybe it would be more my colour. I’d say it was better than just on its own but left my skin quite dry in my T zone. So I hunted on some more.

Knowing that the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer was absolutely amazing I thought the foundation would be too. Got the Palest one and I looked like an Oompa Loompa. What a waste of money that was. I did get him off the internet so I couldn’t swatch him on my skin beforehand.

loreal ivory

The next one I looked for I wanted it to be high coverage as I have some acne scarring from my childhood. I had seen rave reviews about Infallible Total Cover so out came the purse. It was too thick,  like you had put cement on your face and didn’t feel natural. He’s still sitting in my drawer having a think of what he’d done to my face.

make up revolution concealer

Lastly is the Revolution Foundation Stick. I really wanted to love this. It was relatively cheap compared to the others. You didn’t need much on as it went s long way. Had it on for about 4 hours great. Any longer and it left my face shiny and almost melting off my face and definitely not kiss proof, tried and tested. More on his face than my lips.

I have found one that I’m absolutely loving and is definitely a keeper. I will be featuring it in my Monthly Favourites post in a few days so keep an eye out for it.

Thanks for stopping by

Til next time…
