Champneys energising lime foaming body scrub

Hello everyone we are going back to body scrubs. I have tried many from the high street including Zoella's Scrubbing Me Softly and the Body Shop's sweet lemon scrub I put into a favourites post last year. I bought this along with another Champney's body scrub as Boots had them reduced by 75% to £2.50 each!

The Lush tag!

Hello everyone! I was tagged by Lulu from LushUponATime and Kimberley from TheColourChronicles to do the Lush tag! Thank you both for tagging me! I do love Lush products but I do tend to stick to the same products, this tag post made me realise I need to try out so many more products! I added some of my favourite Lush pictures I have taken, I especially love taking pictures of bath bombs!

Mani Monday - Claire's Cosmetics

Hello everyone this Mani Monday features a brand that I often forget does make up and nail polish and is not featured much here; it is Claire's Accessories. Many years ago I got my ear pierced in Claire's Accessories and it is a shop I mainly associate with jewellery. A little while ago I bought some nail polishes in there when they had a sale, they only cost me 50p each instead of the £2.25 which they normally retail at.

Spending Valentine's day alone

Hello everyone! It is that time of year when shops are full of bunched of flowers and boxes of chocolates as well as the Valentine's day cards and balloons. This will be the first time in 7 years I will be single for Valentine's day. I am a firm believer that if you are in a relationship, you should tell them and show them you love them every single day, not once a year, but I also do like the idea of Valentine's day, I cannot really explain it.

LUSH Don't Look At Me Fresh Face Mask

I am a massive fan of face masks, but I have always used the packet ones, I always use about half and get annoyed I have to throw the rest of it away. I thought I would try a fresh face mask from LUSH, this meant I was able to apply what I need then put it in the fridge without worrying about not using the rest!

Mani Monday Barry M Sparkling Ruby limited edition

Hello everyone, today's Mani Monday features this gorgeous limited edition shade by Barry M. This shade was free from Superdrug when, if I remember correctly, you spent £6 or more on Barry M products. I was buying Christmas presents for a couple of my blogging friends and despite what it said on the shelf, I did not spend enough to get it for free, so I paid full price for it, £3.99.

Time to Talk Day

Hello everyone, today (Thursday 4th February 2016) is Time to Talk Day. Time to Talk Day aims to end the stigma and misconceptions related to mental health. This is a post I have wanted to write for a very long time, but I am always worried about upsetting those who care about me, because they know little or nothing about my mental health. In this post I will be discussing my depression, self harm, suicidal thoughts and committing suicide. I have pictures of my self harm but there will be no pictures in this blog post, it will be just me rambling on. If this post makes one person feel less alone or helps in any single way, that would really make me happy.  If this is a post that does not interest you or may be upsetting and distressing to read, I have many other blog posts you can read.
