Thank You And Forgive Me






Hi Loves

I actually didn't think anyone would notice that I had kind of gone a little quiet of late, but from the many gorgeous emails I have had I thought it may be easier to do a little explanation.

In fact I need to vanish more often as my blog views have never been higher?  what's that all about? the less you work the more popular your blog?  that can't be right lol.  New Year is always a funny old time for me, I am not one of these people that bounce into the New Year with the New Year New Me attitude, quite the reverse, I do acknowledge after all these years that I NEVER do well in the Winter, it puts me into a deep black hole,  New Year seems to turn the hole into a giant crevasse that I struggle to get out of, only being made worse by the guilt I suffer knowing I have so many products waiting to be tested and reviewed I constantly live with the fear that I am letting people down.  I did however try and overcome the pity party this year with a diary and plans, only to be blessed with this stinking cold virus that everyone seems to have at the moment,  due to my IBD I am blessed with little to no immune system which means if it's out there I will catch it, and once caught my stupid body can't naturally fight it off so I get the joy for longer. Just greedy :)

While I am in my dark hole I do peep out and keep an eye on social media which of course isn't always healthy, as it's the usual everyone else is having a fabulous time thing.  Of course we know their not but it highlights the hole.  I also see many many bloggers churning out daily content like steam trains, churning out probably isn't the nicest term but that's sometimes how it looks by the lack of enthusiasm for the products being written about.  In truth I am jealous,  my whole family have had to listen to me clack on about my biggest failure in terms of blogging.  I am NOT consistent, I know this and have yet to accept it, I try I really do,  I am 100% aware that this is the number one key to successful blogging, therefore I will never be a successful blogger, whatever that means?  I know this is a huge failure on my part, my lord there are enough bloggers out there selling blogging tips to know that consistency is key.  But unfortunately for me what you see is what you get and I am not one one of the fake it till you make crowd, so do I accept my failings?  Nah I'm a Capricorn and as such I'm a stubborn old goat, so once again in 2019 I will be attempting to cure my failings,  but please forgive me if I fall short once again,  62 years of having the same personality is a big thing to change.  I can only write, speak and act with honestly, often much to my detriment as the world seems to want everything sugar coated nowadays.  


In a nutshell, she's back.  Thank you all for your love and support,  I struggled to write this post but thought without explanation me bouncing back on the scene all glitter and sprinkles could seem a little odd.

Hair Podz Diamond Edition 2 in 1 Detangling Brush & Mirror

Hair Podz Diamond Edition 2 in 1 Detangling Brush & Mirror

Hi Loves,

Just sometimes something comes along that combines good looks and practicality, Hair Podz Diamond Edition 2 in 1 detangling brush & mirror by Hair Secretz is just that thing!


Hair Podz Diamond Edition 2 in 1 Detangling Brush & Mirror

I have totally fallen for this magical little hair brush tool, not only does it detangle even the messiest hair  wet or dry with ease it has a removable brush to make cleaning super simple, it flips open to reveal a handy mirror,  with another twist, your brush pops back inside the pod to keep it clean.  I think the company really did miss a trick as it's actually 3 in 1. Inside is a compartment big enough to hold a mirror or folded notes and coins, a super handy storage space, encased in a gloss finish diamond shape holder. Each one is adorned with a Crystal from Swarovski for that extra Diamond touch.

These clever little brushes have been both deigned and made in England.

New Nordic Hair Volume Gummies

New Nordic Hair Volume Gummies



Hi Darlin,

I don't know about you but I do love a supplement, I honestly feel that nowadays no matter how hard you try with healthy eating, diets etc,  today's food is seriously lacking in everything we need. With that in mind I was delighted to try out Hair Volume Gummies from New Nordic.



New Nordic Hair Volume Gummies

These gummies if I'm honest are totally like sweets so 100% enjoyable, they taste of fruity Apple and
 as they are sugar coated it tends to be something to look forward to rather than a chore to take them! Containing Biotin, Zinc, Apple and herbs these supplements are designed to maintain healthy looking normal hair, they make no false statements about hair growth etc, they simply state that they are a food supplement to maintain normal hair.  This is breath of fresh air to me as I would far rather a product be simple in its claims rather than full of pseudo scientific claims as many product on the market today tend to do.


New Nordic Hair Volume Gummies


I have been enjoying these gummies for a few weeks now and whilst I can't shout from the rooftops that my hair is floor length and shines like a mirror, I feel better for knowing that I am taking something that helps my hair at the root follicle. Hair loss is a common problem with menopause that I would rather avoid if possible!  It could be optimistic on my part but at least I feel that I am doing something to help my hair and there are no chemicals in the gummies, only natural ingredients so they must be be doing something good:)

e.l.f Marsh-Mellow Soothing Mask

Hiya Lovely,

How funny that when we think of e.l.f we tend to think usually of makeup?  I have had a bit of a long term love affair with e.l.f ever since first discovering them in the states, anytime anyone went over I used to pass my list on and be desperate for my goodies to return, no such problem nowadays as e.l.f is readily available in the U.K

e.l.f Marsh-Mellow Soothing Mask 50g

If you are like me and love a mask containing clay then this will be right up your street, the smooth white formula contains Kaolin, Shea butter and Licorice root extract to draw out impurities and soften the skin at the same time, It's one of those masks that is gentle yet at the same time you feel it drawing out all the crud and nasties from your pores, a thin layer applied for 10 -15 minutes is all that is needed, rinse away with warm water and you are left with spotlessly clean skin which feels super smooth to the touch, no tightness or redness at all to the skin, used 2-3 times a week your skin will thank you for it. 

Contains No Parabens, Sulphates or Phthalates and is completely cruelty free and vegan.

When it comes to value for money skincare you would be hard pressed to beat e.l.f it really is worth taking a look into.
