Zoella Lifestyle Collection - Christmas 2018!

Tuesday, 11 September 2018

It's that time of year once again when the Christmas gifts & collections start to arrive online and in stores,  I love this time of the month - September as i know that Christmas is just around the corner and i can have a look on what new collections will be arriving for the festive season. I have been a huge fan of Zoe since the early days of her beauty line in 2014 and her amazing lifestyle range witch was released in 2016!
I picked up everything from the new range ranging from Stationary, writing books, pillows & reed diffusers and candles and i just fell in love with everything that she brought out, I have loved every single product that Zoe has released though her lifestyle range and my favourite from the first range was her amazing scented  candles and reed diffusers as i loved the gingerbread one and it smelt so good and lasted me quite a while, I just loved the way that she has thought of a little bit of everything in the collection and how amazing good quality everything was.

I still have most of the lifestyle range that has been released since 2016 and i must say that i am not disappointed in none of it as it has lasted a very long time, The pillow has been so well made and its very cosy and comfy to lean on or sleep on and i absolutely loved it and the quote that goes with it.
I also love the storage pots as i used them for my pens and pencils as its so handy just to have them on your desk with easy reach when you need a pen!

As Zoella enters the 3rd year of her amazing lifestyle range i had a little sneak peak at some of the brand new Lifestyle range through the Daily mail and i absolutely loved them but staying that i only saw about 3 images as there are 12 items in total,
I believe that the theme is to do with Palm trees (as i love them myself) as her last collection was based on the same idea and i think yet again its gonna be a huge success with her beauty range for Christmas 2018! The colours and the packaging are very well pressed in a lovely combination of colours witch i think it will attract a younger audience with the products and the fans of Zoella.
I will be getting my hands on the whole collection in a couple of months as i always buy Zoella's products for Christmas and i am looking forward to the products and also the amazing Hot chocolate candle and the mug, Once again Zoe has nailed it with her lifestyle range for 2018!

Zoella Beauty ' Cosmos - Christmas Collection 2018!

Thursday, 23 August 2018

It's that time of year again.. Yup the dare i say it... Christmas is just a few months away and i for one am totally excited, I absolutely adore the winter months and of course Christmas and seeing all the pretty gifts that are available from Boots, Superdrug and others and it just gets me so excited. So when i was looking on the superdrug website the other as i am always looking at Zoella products (as i am a huge fan / collector) i saw the new range of Christmas gifts by Zoella I absolutely had literately had a sign of love in my eyes and i had to share my hoist review on the whole range and tell you what i think about it overall.
This years new collection is called 'Cosmos and it consists of 12 glorious gifts and it has a theme of stars and space with a flattering colour of purple (witch i absolutely love) I'm super excited to get my hands on the whole collection and smelling the new scent witch consist of vanilla and peppermint witch is one of my favourites,  I am hoping that the new scent will be like the Vanilla scent from the Christmas limited edition candle from Yankee candle as it would be absolute dream for me as i love any scent that has a splash of Vanilla in it.

As far as the gifting rage goes it looks kinda similar to last years collection called Snowrella witch i absolutely loved, This was the first time when we saw Zoella brought out the rollerball perfume set and tea bags for your bath and it was a huge success,  I am looking forward to getting my hands on the whole collection and smelling that new scent as i have loved every product that Zoella has brought out in her limited edition Christmas ranges since the early days.
The prices has dropped slightly in price since last year and i can remember spending a lot on it but it was all totally worth it as it was a amazing, The prices start from £5.00 way up to £40.00 so theres a gift for everyone whether you want something big or small or just wanna spend a little on a small gift for someone this new range is super ideal for any person who is a fan of Zoella beauty!

When I Broke My Left Wrist

Thursday, 3 May 2018

As most of you might not know that on the 26th April 2018 i had a really nasty accident and i fell down 3 flights of stairs and i broke my left wrist for the first time ever in my life (as i have never ever broken anything in my life) and i wanted to share my story and my experience on how i coped with everything from the second after the accident happened to the day i had my plaster removed!

On a very late Wednesday night on 26th April 2018 around about 11:55pm i was getting myself ready  for bed and i was changing into my pyjamas and i also starting to clear my bed off (as my bed is full of pillows and teddies) and before i usally go to bed i always go downstairs to check that the door was locked (as i have a phobia of this) and saying goodnight to my dog Star, As i walking back upstairs to bed my mum had asked me to go and turn the (heating off on the wall as it can get really hot in my bedroom in the night with the heating on) Anyways i was on the 4th step of the stairs and i also had a pair of Slippers on with no grip on the soles and i went flying of the third step and went straight into the radiator and smacked my head on it. After the accident had happened Crosby came running to me barking and said to my mum that i was hurt and i needed help kinda badly, My mum came over and asked me if i was OK and i replied no i cannot move my left wrist and i was in a lot of pain and also in shock on how everything involved within those couple of minutes. I managed to get myself up after a few minutes after the accident had happened and i said to my mum that i am unable to move my left wrist and i was in a lot of pain and i was in a flood of tears because the pain was so intense. My mum had a look at my wrist and told me that your left wrist looks completely different to the right and she told me that it is defiantly broken as she said that she Hurd the crack when i placed all of my weight on my arm when i fell and i was in need of urgent treatment.

When this all happened my step dad was in bed as he had to go to a event the next day and my mum had to told me to go and wake him up because my (mum didn't wanna be up the hospital with me all night) I managed to wake him up and explained that i needed to rushed to A&E because my wrist is broken and he replied to me ( no you haven't) and i replied back saying yes i have because mum had herd the bone crack when i fell on it, Anyways after a couple of minutes my step dad got out of bed and said come on then get yourself sorted i will take you now he replied. As i was only in my Pyjamas at the time my mum had to help me to get my trainers and my dressing gown on because i couldn't move my wrist and the pain that i was in was terrible.
My step dad drove me down to A&E as fast as he could and at (least there wasn't any traffic on the road) as i was in so much pain that i tried to talk to him to try and take myself off the pain as i was in so much pain on the way to A&E that i wanted gas and air as i was in so much pain but i tried to take my mind of it until we reached the hospital until i was able to get some pain relief, After about 20 minutes around about 11:35pm we arrived at A&E and my step dad dropped me off at the front entrance while he could go and find somewhere to park while i signed myself in and told them what had happened and then i waited with my step dad until i was seen and this was a while.

The 90s Tag

Friday, 9 March 2018

Let’s do the 90’s Questions Tag, shall we? it’s a short questionnaire about my favourites from the 90’s I was born in the early 90s, so I don’t remember that much about it, but what I do remember, I have very fond memories of. So without further ado, let’s begin…

Q1. What Type Of TV Services Did You Have ?
We used to have the now defunct Telewest cable services (Now Virgin Media) I believe that this was the first cable services for our area as it was all kinda new at the time,  I can remember that the boxes were very huge and very ugly and it used to sit underneath our video recorder with our huge black Sanyo TV.

Q2. What Was Your Favourite TV Programme ?
There was so much to choose from back then and it wasn't rubbish like we have today on our TV screens, As i grew up in the big era of Comedy i used to watch a lot of it with my dad while i was staying there with him on the weekends (due to my parents being separated) On Friday nights on BBC2 There was something called the Comedy Zone that ran from 9pm until 10pm or 11pm (i cannot remember) and it used to offer some great classic programmes including Shooting Stars, Red Dwarf & The fast show that i all loved to watch. As i got older i kinda grew more into the programmes every week and then my dad started to record them for me when i wasn't with him so i could watch them when i was with him,

Q3. What Was Your Favourite Toy?
Oh Gosh!! I had so many different toys when i was a kid and i cannot remember how many that i did have and i knew that i was a big fan of toy cars and garages, I also owned a few Barbie dolls and i also owned the very first Baby born and i also had a lot of accessories for and i loved my Spice Girls dolls that i had for Christmas 1997. I can remember one Christmas that my mum got me a Sindy camper van witch was made out of very cheap plastic and it broke almost every-time when i tried to play with or use some of the accessories that came with it! When it did break it was so easy to fix and place back into position it was a great toy and i enjoyed it.
My most memorable toy that i loved with everything that i owned was the Get Set Chocolate factory witch was amazing as you would buy a kit and have everything in that kit to make some chocolate eggs and moulds, It was so easy and straight forward to use and i absolutely loved it when i received a set for one Christmas! I don't know what ever happened to the kit as time went on i think i just ended up loosing some of the bits to it and i couldn't used it anymore without the paper and moulds, It was a great product and something that i would like to buy again if i could find it as i would yet again create some more fab chocolate eggs and moulds,  I also owned the Furby & the Furby baby when they came out in 1998 as i can remember queuing up outside Toys R Us with my mum & Nan waiting to buy one as they were limited as there wasn't enough to go around with over 1000 people waiting for one it was a crazy atmosphere as i can remember it pretty well. I managed to get one and for a 8 year old it was amazing thing and i absolutely loved it.

My MRI Experiences For My Brain & Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ)

Monday, 12 February 2018

I've been extremely lucky that i have had only ever had 3 MRI scans in my whole lifetime (as i hate the experience of it all when you gotta have one done) and my very first MRI was done when i was only 2 or 3 years old as i suffered from Viral Encephalitis and the infection has damaged my brain with cerebral atrophy and also permeant scaring witch is located on the front of my brain, The doctors wanted to make sure that everything was OK after the infection and this is why i received my very first scan at a really young age. I don't have any memory of me ever having the scan done but my mum remembers it very well and she also told me that i would refuse to go into the scanner without my Pink Panther and i settled down with him with no problems afterwards.
My mum has also seen these very early brain scans of my brain and she does recall seeing my scaring on the front of my brain and also the outline of my Pink panther (as i would refuse to go into the scanner without him this is why he is on the scan) My pink Panther came absolutely everywhere with me including going Shopping, Hospital & Doctors Appointments) he was my little friend,

Skip a to a few years later to around about 2003 i was going through a really hard time at high school as i was fining my work extremely difficult and also experiencing these dreadful headaches that came on all of a sudden when i ate something that didn't agree with me, At the time when i first had this headache we were moving house and i had some Fish & chips as it was pretty late to cook something and within a hour or so i would experience my very first Migraine attack and i was feeling absolutely dreadful and very frightened as well, I told my mum that i wasn't feeling very well and my head was banging like crazy and all my life side was paralysed and my vision was all blurry and fuzzy, I wasn't able to speak very well and my mum was only able to understand me what i was saying and she explained to me that i was having a Migraine attack. My mum told me to go and lie down in my bedroom in the dark and wait for the attack to go and i also had some paracetamol for the pain as i was in agony,  Within a few hours of me having the attack my head hadn't improved and i needed more painkillers and my mum was kinda worried that something wasn't right because she has never ever seen someone with a Migraine this bad before and she knew that i had to get some help before things gotten even worse. The attacks were so bad that i couldn't hardly attend school because i was getting up at 2am with these attacks every morning and i wouldn't come out of the attack for a few days later and then i would wake up the same time every morning with a attack, My mum had to go and get me some professional help because i couldn't carry on with it anymore and i was missing a lot of school and also my exams was just around the corner and something wasn't right at all.

I went to see a doctor and i stayed with them for a few months until the doctor couldn't treat me any more and ran out of ideas that i was seen at the hospital by a neurosurgeon that specialised in the brain, I went to see them for the first time and explained what was going on when i had a attack and they tried me on so many different drugs that i ended up being more unwell more then anything and then a few months later they asked me for me to go and have a MRI scan done of my brain to see what was going on. I asked my mum what was a MRI scan was and she told me that i've had one done before and i replied no i haven't ? she said yes you have when you were 2 or 3 when you had your infection and i said OH! and just out of the blue i asked her what is involved because i had never ever experienced it before and i wanted to know if i would be safe, My mum explained everything to me and told me that everyone will take care of you and tell you what will happen each step of the way and i still felt kinda nervous when she talked to me about the scan, i was hoping that everything was gonna go as planned!

Britney Spears Curious - The Collection

Sunday, 28 January 2018

I have been a huge Britney spears fan since i was 8 years old when she bursted into the limelight with her debut single Baby one more time, I was so excited when i saw the news that she was releasing her own fragrance under Elizabeth Arden in 2004 called Curious. I was about 15 when this new excited fragrance went on sale and i couldn't wait to get my hands on it and smell that wonderful scent, Curious was the very first fragrance that i ever owned when i was a teenager growing up! Britney and her team had put a lot of hard work and time into making her very first fragrance and how it was designed from start to finish with the body lotion and the amazing shower gel, I can kinda remember seeing in my local Debenhams store when  it was launched in the UK and when i had a sample of it i loved it from the second i tried it and i knew that i would like a bottle of it when my mum could get me some.

The very first product from the range that i had was the 100ml Atomiser version and the amazing body lotion in a set witch i had for Christmas that same year, My Atomiser pump stopped working a few months later and i believe that they have stopped making these versions due to the problems they were having. I also started to collect the extra products that was also added to the huge range including Shower Gel, Shimmer Stick, Body Polish, It was one of the best fragrances that i had growing up!
Curious has that scent of white floral scent and has notes are Louisiana magnolia, golden Anjou pear, lotus flower, tuberose, star jasmine, pink cyclamen, vanilla-infused musk, sandalwood and blonde woods, And Elizabeth Arden put a special vanilla infused musk in it and added Louisiana magnolia. Spears said that the magnolia reminds her of home. As this was Britney's very first fragrance Curious was released in September 2004, and was very successful internationally. It was the number one fragrance of 2004 in department stores, and in 2005, "Curious" was honored by the Fragrance Foundation as Best Women's Fragrance.

Britney made a Advert for the perfume he TV advertisement for Curious, "Hotel Rooms," was conceived at agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners and directed by Dave Meyers through production company @radical.media.The set was built on a stage instead of in an actual hotel. ActorEric Winter plays Spears' love interest in the TV commercial. It starts off with Winter and Spears noticing each other before they go in their neighbouring  hotel rooms. Then, they are shown thinking about each other with Spears walking towards the door to Winter's hotel room. Then, fantasies of Spears and the latter having sex are shown mixed with things like a cartoon, a flower and a rodeo. It ends with Spears gazing at the camera!

The Spice Girls Collections - My Fondest Memories

Saturday, 6 January 2018

It was the glorious days of the 90s and the spice girls had just released there debit single and by the end of the year Spice mania had kicked off, I was of course a huge fan of the Spice Girls when my mum bought me there new single and album and i was totally hooked with them. My favourite song of the album Spice was 'Naked' & Wannabe and i can still remember to this day when i first listened to them and seeing there toys and merchandise in town and also on TV,  I knew from the early days of them just starting out that the girls would have some products out in shops but i didn't know what this would be until the early start of 1997.

As 1997 was one of the best years for me being a 8 year old and having every toy that you imaged in your own arms it was also the time when the Spice Girls had signed up to massive companies for huge amounts of money that it all went kinda crazy and i knew that i wanted a piece of there popularity of products, I can recall seeing a huge amounts of products in town and also in our local shops from everything including..  Cadbury's Chocolate , Chupa Chups fantasy ball lollipops (with collectable stickers in each packet) Polaroid Spice cam (witch i owed) Buffalo 10cm 1310 - 2 platforms) , Official Merchandise including Dolls, Stationary, Makeup, Party Gifts, pencil cases & tins, Walkers crips (with a different spice girl on) Impulse Spice Fragrance, Watches, Books, Pepsi cola cans and special collection glasses &  There ASDA products for Christmas 1997.
The Spice Girls Official Merchandise from 1997 and i had most of these items!
There was so much out there and with me being such a huge fan i wanted everything that the Girls had brought out and i was lucky enough that my parents got me everything that i asked for from the huge range of products out there, I can recall going into our local ASDA store when the collection was available and i just went crazy as there was so much to offer and i just couldn't get hold of myself with so much to choose from. The store was kinda busy (as i can recall it) and people were just pilling stuff into there trolleys and it was truly unbelievable that this collection had pretty much sold out the time that me and my mum got there,
