Halloween Films

28 October 2016

I love watching films and with a chronic illness it is one of the main things I can actually do without too much pain. Cwtching up on the sofa with a fluffy blanket and a cuppa is probably one of my favourite things in life. You can't really beat it. As we're getting closer to Halloween I thought I'd share my favourite halloween films.

Stupid Ways I've Injured Myself

26 October 2016

As most of you know, I have a condition called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome which means I am in constant pain and dislocate very easily. I'm pretty damn fragile. Due to that I injure myself in some pretty stupid ways so I thought I'd share some of them with you.


Skin Care Favourites

21 October 2016

After years of ignoring my skin I've finally started using an actual skincare routine. I'm still way too lazy and not at all clued up when it comes to skin but I'm working on it. I struggle with dry skin and random breakouts across my chin so here's what I've been loving recently.

Current Favourite TV Shows

19 October 2016

I've been in a massive flare recently so Netflix and NowTV have been my bessies. I love a good TV show. The more seasons the better. I hate getting into a show and then there only being 2-3 seasons. Its so heartbreaking *cough* Lie to me. So here are the shows I am loving at the moment.

Autumnal Nail Colours

17 October 2016

I am a huge fan of the darker nail colours. I pretty much rock black all year round so those autumnal tones are my jam. I love the berry, grey and purple shades. I cannot get enough. So I thought I'd share with you my favourite darker shades ready for autumn because I definitely don't wear these all year round. Nope not me.

The Best Feelings in Life

14 October 2016

I think I'm coming down with a bug or something so I've been feeling pretty crappy recently. Fatigue is kicking my ass and my whole body hurts. I mean even my toes are so painful. Seriously what can you do to ease toe pain? It's soo annoying. This means that I've been taking pleasure in the little things recently like getting more than 3 hours sleep, finally being able to wear cute jumpers and drinking all the tea. I thought I'd write a list of the best feelings in life to make me smile.

That Lame Company #BoxOfLame

12 October 2016

I am always browsing That Lame Company and lusting after their stationery. I've never actually bought anything though because I could never choose. When they announced the September #BoxOfLame I knew I had to have it. I ordered the Blogger #BoxOfLame as soon as I could. Safe to say it did not disappoint.

This #BoxOfLame gives you around £90 worth of products for £25. Such a massive bargain. It's also like Christmas getting to open a box of surprise goodies. You get a selection of That Lame Company goodies as well as some extra gifts from small business partners who kindly gift their items to the box. There is not a single thing in this box that I don't like and it's a must have for any stationery lovers out there.

Hair Care Favourites

10 October 2016

Todays post is a tad late because I feel like crap. Hydrotherapy kicked my ass and I think I'm coming down with something. I feel like I need to sleep for a couple of months. Blurgh

Anyway here's a post on some hair care faves. I have super thick hair and I am beyond lazy with it. This is partially because of my fatigue and the pain of lifting my arms above my head and partially because I can be really lazy. It's honestly lucky if it sees a hair brush. I also try and not wash it for as long as possible because that shit is exhausting. I have however got a selection of favourites that make my hair look and feel nice with minimum effort. I haven't included dry shampoo because I'm on the hunt for a new one to hopefully be my fave but at the mo I currently have about 5 cans of batiste on the go.

October You Beauty Box

7 October 2016

I have so much to do today so obviously I accidentally slept in really late. I was rudely awoken by the postman delivering my You Beauty Box. I answered with mega bed head, extremely sexy pjs (massive T and shorts) and all squinty eyed from the sudden light. Soo that was a good look and I like to think he appreciated it. Once I got some coffee in me I managed to blast through my to-do list. So here's what is in my You Beauty Box this month.

Book Review// Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben

5 October 2016

I have read so much recently and I love it. At uni I fell out of love with reading because I had to read so much for my course it wasn't really enjoyable anymore. I'm glad to say I have definitely rekindled my love for it now. The last 4 books I've read, I've finished in 3 days each. It feels good. I recently read Harlan Cobens Tell No One and loved it so when I saw this one I had to pick it up.

Who doesn't love a good face mask? There's nothing better than a pamper night in front of the TV. My brother always wants in on the action too. He loves a good pamper sesh. When I saw the new L'oreal masks on offer I decided to pick up the L'oreal Pure Clay Detox Mask and I'm so glad I did.
