Epilepsy & The Everyday Struggles

Wednesday, 30 November 2016

I ran a poll on twitter a little while ago to ask what people would like my next Epilepsy post to be on, and The Everyday Struggles Of Epilepsy came out on top. So far my first post about my journey with Epilepsy has been my most viewed post. Which is so lovely because I was really undecided as to whether I should write about it, and what the reaction would be. But the support I've received has been amazing and I've had so many people mention that they know very little about Epilepsy. So, if me just being honest and sweary about Epilepsy is opening some peoples eye to it, I thought fuck it, I may as well share all I can about my struggles and raise a little awareness on the way!

Estee Lauder Clear Difference Advanced Blemish Serum

Sunday, 27 November 2016

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm a firm believer in not reviewing a skincare product until I've used it long enough to really see and feel the benefits. I used to have lovely blemish free skin, until I started taking medication for epilepsy. One of the side effects is acne, and for being someone that hasn't dealt with really bad break outs until I was 21, its been a struggle. Anything that is promoted for blemished skin, I've tried it. Shift work also has an impact on skin, specially night shifts when your skin thinks it should be resting. A friend of mine was experiencing the same issues and was recommended this serum which she then recommenced to me.

Snow Fairy Body Conditioner

So, Lush has a new product AND it's part of the Snow Fairy family. Saw it, and it instantly fell in my basket. If you read my Lush Christmas Haul you would be fully aware that I am a massive fan of anything Snow Fairy and winter is my favourite time for Lush products. As much as I love the original Christmas goodies, I'm a big fan of all the new bits that come along. 

Turtle Bay Southampton

Sunday, 20 November 2016

Recently my partner and I went along to Turtle Bay* for date night. I'm not the best person when it comes to spiced food, so we have never been to Turtle Bay before now. And my partner never lets me forget how my picky eating ruins things for him, and now I've been and actually enjoyed my food, I'm reminded of the 4 long years he's gone without jerk chicken. My bad.

The Wind In The Willows at Mayflower Theatre

Sunday, 13 November 2016

Once again SotonBloggers pulled it out the bag with an amazing event! A lucky bunch of us got to go and watch the musical adaption of The Wind In The Willows. I could not contain my excitement when I received an email about this. I have seen an advertisement for the musical and gave my partner the puppy dog eyes. But he's not a theatre goer, I'm not one either, really. It has to be a production that I have previously loved in another form, whether it be from the TV or a book. But my god am I happy we got to go!

Me Time Matters

Wednesday, 9 November 2016

It's easy to forget the little things sometimes which I've noticed while being off work for the last week. I had everything planned, I was going to write a shit tonne of blog posts, get them all ready and scheduled, I was going to completely gut my room, have a clear out and restart. The list goes on. But you know what I did? Absolutely nothing that was on my to do list. And you know why? Because I needed some time for me.

L'Oréal Pure Clay Mask

Wednesday, 2 November 2016

Let's talk about L'Oréal Pure Clay Mask collection. When they first came out I was only able to get hold of the Detox Mask. Which I have to say I'm a big fan of it. I've found with shift work, specially night shifts, my skin just goes on a rampage and breaks out everywhere. Real fucking annoying.
