Testing 1, 2, 3

Every time the sales come around my email is bombarded with deals and sale news. I do tell myself, 'Do not click the link!', as it will more than likely end in a purchase. The temptation is real

However, I gave in to the army of emails and tweets and browsed the sales with caution. When I saw the First Aid Beauty Fab Faves To Go Kit for under £20, I thought why not? It is suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive.


2oz Face Cleanser 
The cleanser is pearly and luxurious in texture and gentle to use. It left my skin feeling fresh and make up free. It is a welcome addition to my morning and evening routine. This product was quite the surprise for me, as I usually stick with brands that I know well.

28 Facial Radiance Pads 
The facial radiance pads aim to brighten, tone and exfoliate the skin.  A product that has been highly recommended by beauty blogger Caroline Hirons, I was most excited to try this. The slightly textured pads make for a great exfoliant. This has been ideal for my acne prone skin, using one pad in the evening has kept breakouts to a minimum and my skin is a lot happier. This product contains lactic and glycolic acids

2oz Ultra Repair Cream 
This is my favourite product of the three.The Ultra Repair Cream does not leave my skin feeling oily, as many moisturisers do. After spending time in the sun my skin can appear dry and in desperate need of  T.L.C.  So, this cream was perfect for me - generous and hydrating

Overall, I was surprised how much I liked this kit. It has been almost two weeks and I've already noticed my skin appears clearer. I have moved all other skin products to one side for now, as these have taken centre stage in my bathroom. It's a sales WIN from me!

Have you tried First Aid Beauty before?

Summer Blogging

Source 1 2 3 4 5


Back to the blog. I hold my hands up, I've been awful at updating this space but not to say it wasn't on my mind. There are many late night ideas that never make it to the morning. Many blog posts written in my head but never on paper. So, I'm putting my best foot forward in an attempt to be a good blogger and update more often - expect, vases, candles, shoes, books and more...


I went to London twice last month. This was quite an achievement for me. I used to associate London as a big, scary city that would send me into a panic. I decided to face my anxiety head on and book the train tickets. I'm so glad I did!

It was hot, hot, hot in London. My first mistake was wearing black jeans. My second, was thinking my make-up would last the day. This aside, it was the perfect weather for a weekend away. We had a wonderful time. I simply told myself to 'have fun' and to live in the moment.


I went to the theatre for the first time. My sister kindly bought us tickets to see The Elephant Man starring one of my favourite actors, Bradley Cooper. The show was over so quickly. I thought the set, the minimal props and the transitions into each scene were so well done.  I am no critic, however, I thoroughly enjoyed. There was even a humour to the story that had the entire audience laughing.

At the end of the show, we went to the back door to wait patiently for another glimpse of the famous actor. I did manage to get a blurry picture as he got into his car and gave the crowd a wave. My night was made!
