Thinking Of Soaking Up The Sun On A Short Haul Holiday? Hit Up, Huns!*

Aside from melted cheddar and copious amounts of chocolate, there is nothing I look forward to more than Summer - and the incentive / wanderlust that the slightest peep of sunshine gives me to book my next vacay. The symptoms of said travel bug are especially heightened this year for me, as I was unable to book anywhere or even leave the house for the entirety of 2017 [worst. year. EVER!] - so now I'm proper gaspin' to dip my toes in a foreign ocean & bronze up my pasty-ass skin. ASAP.

The days are getting longer, the sun is [very occasionally] getting his hat on & blessing us with a few rays and the temperature is [slowly AF] rising... if these things don't make you wanna start planning your next holiday immediately; I don't know what will! That's why I'm made up to have discovered this year; who specialise in cheap short haul holidays [e.g. to some of the sexiest lil sun-traps in Europe.] Although I'd like to travel further afield at some point, it's all a little out of my budget - so websites offering fab deals, such as this one, are ideal for me. Plus, places such as Turkey and the Greek Islands [Kefalonia, Rhodes, Mykonos etc] are some of my most favourite places in the whole world ever; and only about 4 hours away, depending on ya flight route.

All this holiday talk has got me feeling a little giddy - so I'm going to share a few of my favourite places I've been on holiday today and some other short haul destinations I'm game as a badger to visit. All of which can be explored on Holiday Gems website.


New In Skincare : Misfit Cosmetics*

I'm probably at one of my top five happiest ever levels when I'm sat watching Dr Pimple Popper extraction videos on Insta... way into the night, when I should totes be sleeping, obv. Yolo. Therefore when these goodies from Misfit Cosmetics landed in my life [namely, this super enticing Blackhead Extraction Paste Peel Off Mask*] my attention was very much piqued & the stuff was on my face as soon as I'd taken a few snaps of it. Cos yeno, you can't just dive straight in there and risk ruining that Insta aesthetic, queens. #DoingItForThe'Gram

I just loooooove clearing out dem pores & peeling stuff [be this off of my face or on my nails; as you may have read about here] - these slightly unusual activities are two I'd probs rank in my top ten hobbies tbh. So how did these products live up to my expectations? Was the mask as a-peeling as it sounded going off first impressions [hahaha I'm so punny]? What is a Wake Up Wipe* [I am aware I've got a bit carried away talking about the Extraction Paste thus far, but these baes are also from Misfit... are they fit or a mis{s}]? All will be revealed with a cheeky scroll or two, gang.

The Happiness Planner* | It's FINALLY MINE!

I've wanted a Happiness Planner since the dawn of time [well, since I started blogging about 4 years ago... yeno I have a tendency to be sliiiiightly overdramatic sometimes.] But I'd always found that they weren't the most easily accessible of things to get ya mitts on - they'd always be either sold out, shipped from over the pond [meaning you'd likely end up being bummed by hefty custom fees] or just dead pricey [& yous all know I'm a self proclaimed pauper, so I could never rly justify the expense of one when my rent wasn't paid, I was living off bunny shaped crisps & debt collectors were pure blowing up my phone. However much I tried.] 

But times have changed. These babein' planners are no longer out of my reach. I legit have one of my very own [actually buzzin', queens] - and I know where I'll be going next year for one, too. Find Me A Gift. If you wanna banish them blues & embrace happiness this year - look no further than the Happiness Planner January - December 2018*. It's so much more than just a journal - the thought put into this product, its presentation and the content of the planner is just something else, like.

Soz queens - this brand is one I've fallen for big time ... and I'm pretty sure if you've tried any of their products, you'll understand exactly why they're all I talk about these days!

The OG Beauty Blender - Is It Something You Need?*

I'd always been a makeup brush kinda gal when it comes to my base, until recently. I went a bit sick on Cult Beauty cos I had a 15% off discount code and zero self restraint [obv] and picked up the Beauty Blender x Toofaced Beauty Sleep Set - which I consequently professed my love for pretty strongly across me socials. And then, a bit like that manifesting theory I read about sometimes on Twitter, my baes at Beauty Blender only went and sent me the OG of blenders - their Original Beauty Blender* in bright pink [#Goals] and that was that. Love secured.

What’s the Secret to Being More Confident?*

Although certain situations can pure make me uncomfortable [and I then end up saying the most cringe things ever due to my awkwardness as a human & dying inside *insert all of the 'Why are you like this? memes here*] I am, I would say, fairly confident. Or at least good at faking it. In many ways. 

A lack of self confidence however, is something I know a lot of people [indeed, many of my friends] find themselves having to deal with - which leads me to wonder what the secret is to becoming a generally more confident person? There are lots of answers to that question, and, of course, different things work well for different people. Different strokes for different folks, and all that. But there are a few common trends which seem to result in greater confidence for the majority of people, and we’re about to discuss them right now in this collaborative confidence post!

If you're not familiar with the brand... pls, grab a brew and get yourself acquainted.

The So Shape Challenge - An Introduction*

I've got something a little different for you guys today - and different for me. I don't normally blog about fitness, or weight, or health rly ... because I am anything but fit. My leg was hanging off for the majority of 2017, I haven't been able to walk [let alone work out] since then, I've been eating my feelings like there's no tomorrow [hello new fat status] and healthy lol... I've had like four operations and a potentially life threatening bone infection in the past 12 months. Soooo those three things have been anything but my forté

I'm still not okay... I still can't walk properly & I still remain in daily pain after my surgery in December. But enough is enough. I can't just fester in my duvet forever. I'm doing physio at the hospital and trying to do more [despite the limitations & exhaustion] - plus I've been given the okay to do a few things at the gym [and I'm even starting hydrotherapy in the pool soon.. hahahaa me in a swimming costume PLS] - so it's time to start making my fitness, my weight and how I feel about my appearance a priority again. I've called in a little help to help me achieve my fitness goals, at least for just the first month or so anyway, in the form of So Shape*. And this post is a lil introduction to the shakes themselves, why I'm taking part in this 28 day challenge and what they actually do.

Why THIS Leighton Denny Product Is SO A-PEELING To Me*

Confession : I'd never tried Leighton Denny products before now. I KNOW - shocking, disappointing... something which slightly more dramatic souls [ie me] might class as downright unacceptable. But thankfully this woeful story has a happy ending; as the gals at Alex Silver PR ended my LD drought by sending me their new Easy Peel Base Coat* and a rather erotic glittery polish* to test it out with, too. And as far as first impression products go, this blogger mail could not have been ANY more a-peeling to me.

A Lip Plumper.. Which DOESN'T BURN Like The Fiery Pits Of Hell?! YAAAAAAS*

Winter is my least favourite season for a whole multitude of reasons - but [coldness, snow & darkness aside] one of my main bug bears surrounding this time of year is getting dry, chapped lips. This horrific medical impairment is pretty much a constant for me during this grim time of year, and adds further fuel to the fire for my argument of why I should just move to Spain immediately

I've been lucky enough to try out some Image Skincare for the first time recently though gang; and I'm happy to announce that I've fallen in LOVE with a lil lip product of theirs... that banishes all my chapped problems, adds a subtle hint of rosiness to my pout AND plumps it up at the same time. This lil bae is their OrMedic Sheer Pink Lip Enhancement Complex* [which you may have already clocked on my Insta feed] and there's just SO MANY REASONS why this tube of rosy goodness needs to be in everyone's handbag [rain or shine] that I need to share with yous as a matter of urgency. So let's go.

How To Make Ya Money Go Further*

I will hold my hands up and freely admit to anyone who asks [and those that don't] that I AM BROKE AF, man. I'm not one of them bloggers with a closet of Chanel bags, Valentino heels and a fresh bouquet of red roses in every room of the house [lol, as if I can even afford a house.] I'm the kinda gal who buzzes her tits off after finding a penny on the floor, lives for the word Sale [or Reduced to Clear] and has zero shame re: stepping into Poundland. Except during that time around Christmas, when they had all them weird sexy elf pics going on. Those were awkward times.

I've not ended up living in a skip with a family of feral cats & a fox named Sid just yet though. Ya gal has been fighting off poverty since... well, forever... swerving them debt collection calls, keeping the baliffs at bay and collecting late payment fees like Pokémons - gotta catch em all. So I thought I'd share a few money making / saving tips with you guys today, in case any of you find yourselves in similar life predicaments as me. Cos although I'm not always great at putting these tips into practise, I do legit know what I'm talking about here. Cos dis is ma lyf xoxo

Ten Defining Moments of Any Relationship*

As well as nerve wracking, sometimes disastrous, hilarious [if you're me] and fun; dating is packed with so many firsts & pivotal moments that are totes worth talking about. 

From the moment you realise you're falling in love, them butterflies in ya belly when you have a cheeky neck and those powerful rushes of RAGE when you realise he's been using your most expensive perfume as a spray to mask his poo smell... dating is the emotional rollercoaster that just keeps on giving. Even if he doesn't

Here's my thoughts on some of the defining moments all relationships seemingly go through - for better or for worse!

Grab Ya Passport, Ya Bikini & Ya Katherena - Sunshine Awaits [Somewhere]*

I'm not sure the current climate is okay huns, are you? Yesterday I witnessed clear blue skies & pretty springtime sunshine beaming down...whilst it was snowing. In March. *Inserts blinking man GIF*

There's one thing I am certain about tho - and that's how bloody much this terrible weather is making me want need to book a holiday pronto. The hotter, further away & exotic the better. Therefore, this stylish, practical, 2-in1 perfect-size-for-hand-luggage Regent Holdall Bag* from hot up-and-coming brand Katherena is getting packed immediately; so the first half price holiday I clap eyes on can be booked & embarked on asap

Regent is vegan, unisex [aaaaall about that gender neutral life - I really respect companies who recognise the need for this in the market] and double denim AF - ticking so many boxes in the fashion and inclusivity stakes.
