Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi

To this day I never thought I would be blogging about something feet!! I am really funny when it does come to my feet as well, i'm not a big fan. But this product has impressed me so much I don't think I could contain my excitement!

I am on my feet day in day out with my job, and always have to wear tights on a day to day basis, so my feet haven't been in the best condition these last couple of years. I have tried everything from cream treatments to foot scrubs to rasps, and nothing was cutting it. Until now,I was watching NCIS on the TV and this little number popped up, and since as I was going to Boots the next day I thought why not give it a try, something different and also something that looked like it had more oomph to it, and I couldn't have been more wrong.

Within a week of buying this product I have noticed such a massive difference in my feet, they look pretty now, and have a nice smooth feel to them instead of feeling all rough and horrible. After about 10 mins of using this product on my feet I instantly noticed a difference, so hopefully with continued use my feet will be forever feeling heavenly, we hope!!

The only negative thing that I have to say is the price of the product, although I was lucky enough to get it in Boots for £29.99 the original price is £39.99. Although once you have brought this product they do sell the roller heads so no matter what this product really is perfect!


Where I would like to spend Valentines

It's the most romantic time of the year again! And I thought I would share some of the places that I would love to spend my Valentines day, the places where you can spend some quality time with your loved one and make a lot of beautiful memories that will never be forgotten.

1. Paris

This is one of the most beautiful cities that I have ever been to, and somewhere that is nice and relaxing. I went here 4 years ago with my boyfriend it was one of the first holidays that we went on together, and although we wasn't all to well when we went there due to something we ate on the first day that we was there, we still really enjoyed our time there relaxing! You have so many different things to visit while you are out there one of the main attractions is the eiffel tower and also the love lock bridge.It is also very nice of an evening when you are strolling around by the river and just enjoying the sites around, the hotel that we stayed in was away from everything but in a nice area to be able to walk to the main attractions. I would really love to go back there again just to have a look around all the places that we didn't get to visit the first time, and also to be able to put a lock on the bridge, as I didn't research very well before we went there.


Venice has been on my list of places I want to visit for a long time. It looks like such a lovely place to go, and you can enjoy the rivers on a gondola with your loved one, also the taste of Italian food invites me there even more, especially the pizzas and the pastas, even if it is just for a long weekend away. And with a nice romantic gondola ride just before sunset and then a romantic meal in the evening sounds like a perfect way to spend Valentines day!

These are just a few of the places that I would pick to go away on Valentines day, do you have any that you would like to go to? Let me know in the comments below, and maybe I can add some of them to my bucket list!!!

Drugstore Haul- Boots

I know the quality of this picture isn't the best but I got home a lot later then expected from the shops to take some good pictures but my camera died and had to use my phone also the sun was slowly going down so I do apologies in advance!

Today I thought I would go out for a nice little shop, and try and gets some new things. One because I wanted some new material for my blog and two I really wanted to try some new things out. Also Boots had 3 for 2 and you just have to jump at that opportunity when it arises! Who can ever say no hey?

Sensationail Gel Starter Kit-£69.99
I have put this in to the picture just to go with the added extras that I got at boots while I was out, I was lucky enough to get this for my Birthday last Tuesday, and it has been amazing! And makes it so much easier to paint my nails without chipping then during the week, so saves me so much time, and it really does last! Although I got impatient and wanted some new colours, as it's sunny wanted to make the most of it. 

Sensationail colours- Sugar Plum and Pink Daisy-£15.00 each
I brought these two colours, as unfortunately where I work we are only allowed to have certain shade of colours as I work on the reception, so I got a pinky shade and a burgundy shade. They both look amazing so I am looking forward to trying these out.

Sensationail gel polish remover and gel polish removal tool- £6.00 & £5.00
I needed to get some of this so I could take my last set of gel nails off, this only has 95% acetone in it, and I was super impressed with the way it came off and it doesn't make your nails feel horrible afterwards and does have a conditioner on it, so I was super impressed with this. I also got the removal tool as I thought this would help to get the gel off easier and make the process a little bit faster, unfortunately I haven't used this properly yet so I can't tell you how well it works but as soon as I do I shall update you.

Scholl velvet smooth express pedi- £39.99 (was £29.99)
Lately I have been getting really hard skin on my feet and it's been making them feel awful and scratchy and pretty painful, and I saw this machine being advertised on the TV so I thought I should give it a try and see how it goes. 

L'oreal true match foundation- Golden Ivory- £9.99
I was looking at a new foundation to try and the last couple that I have been trying have either been too orange toned or to light for my skin, and I have heard some really good reviews about this so I thought why not give it a go.

If you would like me to do any reviews on the products that you see above, please do let me know in the comments :)

Let's take some time to relax and take it easy!!

At this moment in time I am sitting on my bed, and smelling BBQ's cooking as England is finally enjoying some sunshine!! Yes that's right the big yellow circle is in the sky finally! This was when I was thinking I feel bad because I really have disowned my blog recently I have been so busy with work, and just haven't had much time for myself or to even think about a blog post, which I am awfully sorry about. But guess what here is one for you to all enjoy now.

I thought I would do a blog post on how I relax of an evening when I get the time, just to be alone and relax and look cool with a face mask on. What I usually like to do is turn on my fairy lights above my bed and then put some candles on just to make my room look nice and relaxing, and cosy.

Once I have done all of that I usually then jump in to a nice warm bubbly bath with either a lush bath bomb or my ESPA relaxing oil, which is amazing stuff! And then just having a nice relaxing bath, sometimes I have the bath lit with candles or I just have the normal light on and read a book, once I get out I usually get in to some nice warm PJ's and then relax in bed with a face mask on and a really girly movie and maybe some popcorn depending on if we have any in the house.

I love to just have evenings like this I think we all deserve them, as it's important to look after yourself as well as everybody else, people should all make some me time even if it's just for half an hour I find it makes me feel all refreshed afterwards and your ready to fight the world again!! And here is a little angel that I have above my bed that I thought I would share with you all as well I hope you like it :)
