I've just uploaded my monthly haul! It's not the most exciting collection of items I've ever hauled but there you go. I've been a little quiet on the blogging front this week due to me not feeling too well, as you can tell from this video I have a stinking cold and because I'm pathetic I've been moping about in my PJ's on my sofa for the past few days - tragic. I have got a new outfit posting coming tomorrow though so I'll be back to my usual self soon!
Anyway, enjoy the haul and apologize again it's a little basic. Subscribe if you enjoyed and anything you need to know will be in the down-bar below!
It's music time again! It's my second 'Monthly Mix-tape' and hopefully I've got some good songs this month for you to have a listen to.
Don't forget you can follow my Spotify to hear my playlist, although I can't get Dre's new album on there so I did join Apple Music instead - guilty. But, nevertheless you can still find most of the songs I'm loving over there.
For more information check the down-bar to the video. Hope you enjoy and don't forget to subscribe if you did!
It's monthly haul time! I've got a few bits from Primark and Topshop with some other bits and bobs like my beautiful Duo boots you saw in last weeks outfit post. Hope you guys enjoy this months round up of purchases! Make sure to subscribe if you did and anything you may need to know will be in the description box below. Thanks for watching!
I finally bit the bullet and filmed a video I've thought about doing for months and months, proud moment over here! Even though I like to share my music with you guys here on my blog (have you ever noticed the 'Current Sounds' drop down menu over in the top right hand corner before?) I've thought about sharing more over on my YouTube channel by making a monthly video about my favorite music the month. I know most of us are music lovers so I hope some of you will enjoy finding new music through these videos, or maybe even sharing the love for a certain song with me. Think a beauty gurus monthly favorites video but swap that certain special foundation for a rock song, yep, that's what these videos are all about!
I'm going to post these at the end of every month even if they get barely any views (let's hope not...) because it's something I'm 100% up for doing on the regular. So, keep an eye out on my channel to hear what I've been playing non-stop throughout that particular month.
Along with a video I've also created a Spotify playlist which you can follow if you're a fellow Spotify user like me! If not then you can find all of the songs mentioned in the description box of the video itself. I'm hoping the playlist will get bigger and bigger over the months, as it currently only has these songs on it for the minute!
If you've had a listen to the song's I've mentioned then let me know what you think in the comments over here or on YouTube, whether you love or hate them! You can leave me a few songs to check out too if you like, I'm constantly looking for new music and I bet some of you have some killer songs hiding away on your iPod's.
So, I leave you with this and I hope you enjoy it. It's a little different and as much as I adore fashion and beauty videos, I want to bring my love of music to my channel and create more lifestyle posts an videos for you all. Thanks for tuning in and giving it a watch if you did and make sure to subscribe if you enjoyed!
It's that time again where I show you all the things I don't need but did in fact really badly want. This month I've purchased a fair few items from the likes of Primark, H&M, Forever 21 and more. If you'd like the links for any of the items featured then head over to the video via YouTube and check out the description box as everything I could find is listed for you there!
Thanks for watching, feel free to leave a comment or even subscribe if your heart so desires!
So the lovely people over at Your Tea sent me some tea (duhh) to try! They sent me the Tiny Tea 28 day TEAtox, you can also buy one that's only 14 day if you'd rather have a trial run before spending a little more money on the longer one. This is supposed to help with bloating, cellulite, problematic skin and increasing energy. There are a couple more things it will assist you on but these are the problems that really stick out for me, and if something may help those then I'm willing to give it a try!
I 've also made a video on my YouTube channel reviewing the tea, but I thought I'd write a bit more about it over here as well.
First off I really did enjoy giving this tea a go, I'm a bit of a tea snob and have at least 5 cups a day, so I was pretty stocked to try something new in the tea region and mix it up for a change. I was slightly worried before trying it because I'm a standard British tea kind of gal, I do love myself a green tea every now and then but most of the time I need a strong cup of plain ol' English tea! I did wonder if it would be a floral or fruity taste, two things I hate in a tea, BUT all was well and it tasted lovely. It was a lot like green tea as it felt fresh drinking it and didn't leave me feeling bloated at any point, something that regular tea tends to do to me. Over all the taste was joyus and pleasant to drink.
I talked about this a fair bit in the video, and that's the fact that I found it hard at first to fit in the time to consume my tea. I'm a bit of a forgetful person anyway so that probably didn't help in the slightest, but at the time I received this lovely box of tea, I was working non-stop at my retail job and that takes up 8 hours of a day. I usually work from 11am to 7pm, which between that time is when lunch and dinner is usually had. On the leaflet it tells you to drink your tea half an hour before any meal three times a day and that's where I struggled, I couldn't pop out the back thirty minutes before my lunch break and sit and have a cup of tea, then go back again thirty minutes later and eat, that's just not happening! So I couldn't have any tea for 80% of my day, which defeats the object really doesn't it?
I ended up saving it for a couple of months until the busy winter season at work was over and I wasn't working as much, I'm really glad I did because it gave me a chance to actually enjoy it.
From January I decided I wanted to stop eating meat, this is because I suffer badly with bloating. I would eat a meal with meat in and instantly feel the size of a house, I'd sometimes even get bad stomach pains. Weather that was because of the meat or not, ever since quitting it I've felt so much better. There are a few other thing's I've cut out because of my bad tummy, such as bread, and I now feel like a much healthier person. As this tea suggests it helps with bloating so I was eager to give it a go and although it had reduced significantly already it helped just that little bit more in making me feel less full. If you also struggle with bloating then I highly suggest giving this TEAtox a go because I know just how bad it can make you feel and it helped me greatly!
Also, because I've stopped eating meat (I still eat fish, I know, rubbish vegetarian and all that) my energy levels aren't all that great. I suffer greatly from that especially when it's warm, I tend to loose all will to do anything that requires effort and that's not something I enjoy. This was an issue before I stopped eating meat, but has became worse since. I noticed mostly that the tea would help me a lot in the mornings, I would have it thirty minutes before breakfast and already feel energized and I'm not a morning person so I found this pretty surprising.
As for my skin my pimples did reduce on my forehead, which I like to call my 'bad area'. I suffer a fair bit with spots appearing at awful times in places highly visible to other people and it's the worst. I know most of us suffer with spots and bad skin so I'm sure you can all feel my pain with this one! Watching my skin appear less covered was a pretty good feeling, although since stopping the tea I have now got the mother of all spots right on the center of my forehead - typical. Given, it's not something that will last forever but it was good while it lasted.
I wouldn't say I was the most unhealthy person in the world, I definitely watch what I eat but I of course enjoy eating bad foods occasionally too! As if I can resist chocolate or cake or crisps... But I did feel like a healthier person during my time on my TEAtox, knowing you're drinking something so good for you makes you feel a lot better about yourself, and my stomach didn't look too bad either!
