Remembrance 

I recieved this in the post on 15th September 2016. I always wondered how you got one and now I know 😊.  I will be writing a heart felt message and sending it back for it to be displayed in Westminister.

I feel honoured to have been given the chance to write a message and get my cross planted at Westminster along with all the other 120,000 tributes.  We are here today due to the efforts of all those, both men and women that fought in WW1,  WW2 and all other wars as well as all those that are currently on the frontline fighting…  Utter respect goes out to all those that have fought and lost there life, those that are still here to tell the stories and those that are fighting..

We will remember them… 🌺

Lots of Love

GlossyBox Reviews

I’m on a mini break in Italy at the minute and only taking hand luggage to keep costs down, the body items in the glossy boxes I’ve had so far are perfect as only small sizes suitable as all under 100ml.

So I’ve wrote a little review on two items, one recent and one a few months ago…

De Bruyère – After Sun Lotion Monoï. RRP £9.48
The after sun lotion has a strong scent, it does smell nice but for me the smell is a bit too much. It goes on the skin lovely, not too thick or too greasy and it covers well also.

It is enriched with Monoï (gardenia petals soaked in coconut oil) alongside Vitamin E, it will hydrate, nourish and calm your skin. What’s more, it’s totally peraben & silicone-free


Cowshed ~ Wild Cow Invigorating Body Lotion RRP £20

This will give you an energy buzz with its boosting blend of Lemongrass, Ginger and Rosemary. This luxe body lotion deeply moisturises skin with She’s and Cocoa Butters. It’s made in England and they use natural ingredients, which are packed full of skin-loving essential oils.

I applied this to my legs as they were feeling a bit dry. After opening the lid the scent was strong. You could smell the Lemongrass & Ginger straightaway. The cream is easy to apply and my legs have left feeling smooth. When applying apply the body lotion in a circular motions will increase circulation.

MUA ~ Heaven & Earth Eyeshadow Palette RRP £4

This palette you have 12 on trend eye colours that you can mix, match and blend in a number of different ways to create the look you want! Each colour is highly pigmented.

I now actually have two of these as I brought one a week earlier while I was in town. I’m not sure why I brought it as all the eyeshadow palettes I have are all similar in colour. So I didn’t actually need it!Swatches of eyeshadows: L to 

Rift / Amber Dune / Catacomb / Tectonite / Canyon / Bedrock

I hope you have enjoyed reading this post & look forward to more GlossyBox reviews soon!

Lots of Love

San Marino

I took myself out on a little day trip today 24th September 2016 to San Marino, Italy.  

San Marino is its own country within Italy.  It became independent from the Roman Empire on 3rd September 301a, the computable is City of San Marino and has a population of around 33,020.  It is situated on the Italian Peninsula on the northeastern side of the Apennine Mountains. San Marino is neither a manner of the European Union or Eurozone but still has Euros as its currency.

It’s 10km from the Adriatic Coast at Rimini, where I am having a few days away for my birthday..  The highest point in the country, the summit of Monte Titano, is 749m (2,457ft ) above sea level. San Marino is the 3rd smallest country in Europe, only Vatican CIty and Monaco being smaller and I can now say that I have the full pack as I have been to all three…

Anyway that’s enough of the history.  There is a regular bus service from Rimini train station to San Marino, which costs 10€ return which isn’t to bad and the journey on the coach isn’t too bad either, the journey itself is roughly about 50 mins and you get some good views as your going up.  I would say the main points of interests in San Marino are The Three Towers which are located on the three peaks of Monte Titano in the capital. 

The three towers are 

Guaita: the oldest of the three (Constructed in the 11th century)

Cesta: located on the highest of Monte Titano’s summits (Constructed in the 13th century)

Montage: located on the smallest of Monte Titano’s summits (Constructed in the 14th century & still privately owned)

San Marino is such a lovely place, some much history and culture to take in, there is plenty to see and do there, they have a few different museums, there is even a museum of torture so you can see how they tortured people all those years ago, I didn’t go and look round this one just entering and seeing the displays at the start put me off!!!

There are also some lovely little shops and alleys to explore, is just so pretty.  The shops have some beautiful Italian leather bags and purses, as well as a few designer shops too.

Here are just a few pictures of San Marino 😊


Hope you’ve enjoyed this post on San Marino..

Juice Plus

So I’ve been doing Juice Plus since May 11th, and I’ve lost 21.8lbs up to the 31st August but since Jan 4th I have lost a total of 31.4lbs, I still have a few more pounds to lose but I’m losing it slow and steady which I’m happy with.  I take the Berry/Vineyard Blend capsules, which I take 2  a day and then I eat clean alongside the plan, drink at least 3 litres of water and  exercise 3/4 times a week.

Image result for juice plus

What is Juice plus, I hear you say? Well if you want to feel really well, your body needs a range of valuable nutrients. So you need to eat a balanced diet to feel empowered, and that includes a varied selection of fresh fruits and vegetables. Because that is not so easy to do on an everyday basis, Juice PLUS+ have concentrated the best parts of 30 types of fruits, vegetables and berries in capsule form. You can now get the benefit of valuable phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals. You will also be optimally supplied with powerful antioxidants that are important for your well-being. Why is Juice Plus important? If you want to eat more healthily but often do not have enough time to plan every meal perfectly. Juice PLUS+ can help: the products bridge the gap between what we eat every day and what we should eat every day.   Juice PLUS+ allows you to enjoy the benefits of fruits and vegetables in a very simple way. Of course you should still eat fresh fruits and vegetables every day. That way you will have a balanced diet and remain fit and strong. There is no better opportunity to enjoy a long and healthy life!
