Pick Me Up/Pamper Night


I know I’m not alone when I need those nights where you just lounge/soak/veg… well this was one of those nights so I thought I would share what it is I do with you….

First of… I should start by saying I was so tired from lack of sleep as my little lad was so hot in the weather he didn’t sleep… then I spent the whole day in pain with my coccyx and doing my wifely duties (haha I know… I didn’t do the last one)

I started off by running a bath, grabbing Lush Twilight and plopping that in the bath. I took my make up off and chucked my favourite Elemis Lavender Repair Mask on my chin and put some eye masks on. 

I didn’t need to wash my hair this night or do my nails so I could proper chill in the bath and watch PLL… (literally just started and now hooked!)

I always find having an exfoliate and shave makes me feel like my life is pieced together. Once out the bath I rinsed my mask off and finished my skincare routine.

I then made sure I moisturised EVERYWHERE, I have been loving my Champneys Relaxing Lavender body soufflé, it’s so comforting and lightly scented. I put on some clean pjs, grabbed a blanket. James had settled Jake so we snuggled up in bed and watched the rest of Riverdale… I just waited for him to drift off so I could put PLL back on 😂

What do you do when you’re in need of a pamper? Always looking for new ways to relax. XOXO

Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser

I have seen reviews on this hot cloth cleanser a few times and because I am so dedicated to my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish I just never went and bought it. Well I finally bought it after Debra Bow did a review and I really don’t regret it. The first point I should make is the Superdrug hot cloth cleanser was £4.99 for 200ml compared to the LE C&P which is £28 for 200ml… I thought why not give it a go!

The smell is totally different but I find the texture the same. The smell of the vitamin E one is so delicate it’s great for those days you don’t fancy any fragrances around. I find it isn’t as strong as the cleanse and polish, if I get distracted by my lad half way through cleaning my face with Liz Earle my face will be red, that’s if I leave it on for a minute or so!

In terms of make up removal I do find I need to use an eye make up remover with the vitamin E one but not with Liz Earle. My skin feels so smooth after using this though and although I need to remove my eye make up I generally do anyway as don’t like mascara all over my face. I think once I have used my Liz Earle one up I will just buy the Superdrug one, I can’t justify spending an extra £23 on a cleanser I can get for £5 which in my opinion is just as good.. and some places better!

If you have used this cleanser I want to hear what you think 🙂 XO

Elemis Herbal Lavender Repair Mask 

I am going to start with… Wow… I absolutely love this face mask. It’s a pricey mask at £31. I first used this in January at a spa and I was hooked.

This is a creamy texture and goes on really smoothly. I only use a thin layer as my skin is a little sensitive at times. It contains Lavender which I find really helps calm my skin when it’s a bit angry and hormonal.

Of course it being lavender it’s really relaxing and I love using this just before getting in the bath or before bed, finish off with some facial oil and I’m all set for bed. It’s also great if I have an extra 20 minutes in the morning if I have woken up with some beasts haha.

If you are in a treat yo’ self mood definitely give this a go 🙂 xo

Our Wedding Day

Writing the title of this post still gives me butterflies, I can’t quite believe we are actually married. J and I met when we were 16 when we worked in a sandwich shop together. A few years later we got in touch again! Now 7 years later we have a 4 year old and a mortgage. 

Here are a few pictures from the day… I’ll stop rambling haha. 

I wanted to put all 259 in haha but I thought I would just do 17! XOXO
