Marmalade

So I jumped on the Jelly Bath Bomb hype. I purchased Marmalade along with alot of other lush products when I was having a bit of a splurge. 

It took ages to fizz and had a lovely fragrance however the jelly appeared in lumps on the surface of my bath – not quite sure how this is supposed to moisturise?

I wouldn’t purchase this again it was £5 pounds ish and I’m not quite sure it lived up to expectations.

Neom Luxury Treatment Candle


I bought this (along with some other Neom goodies) on a sleepless night. The products are designed to destress and aid sleep.

This candle melts and then turns into a body oil.

Firstly the packaging is gorgeous, a thick card box ideal for gifting slides open to reveal a candle complete with golden drip effect.

After burning the candle for half an hour you blow it out and let it cool for two minutes.

Then you pour it onto your skin, the oil is pleasantly scented and absorbs well. Neom then recommend cupping your hands and breathing in the fragrance.

Take care as the oil sets up again quite quickly.

Fly me to the moon

This bad boy was a slower fizzer and turned my water the colour of tropical lagoons! The scent was pretty subtle and the water had a nice shimmer to it. I bought it because it looked fun – not the best bath bomb I’ve had (I like a strong fragrance) so I probably wouldn’t buy it again.

The guest bedroom

2 months ago (or there abouts) I bought a 1930s semi detached ex-rental. I have started attacking all the rooms at once and much to my surprise the second room to be finished was the guest bedroom.

Alot of work was needed – the walls showed serious sign of their age and my Mum spent alot of time finding and filling holes from old shelves etc. The celling wallpaper was a nightmare to get off my Dad spent hours scraping it off but finally after a stressful experience with a floor sander the room was prepped.

Paint was applied and ta da one room is decorated. Furnishing it is next.

Pre Birthday Pamper

On the eve on my 26th birthday I felt the need for a bit of TLC.  I am a big fan of the foot masks – I purchase them from Poundland – they stock tea tree and coconut ones and both are pleasant to use. They are little plastic booties with a moisturising liner and they are great for a quick fix.

Essie – cute as a button was a freebie from a Boots VIP night. The colour is a bold and vibrant pink perfect with a tan. The formula goes on smoothly. It’s been a while since I’ve used Essie so I am unsure how long it will be before it chips.

The big wow product for my was Goddess Skin from Charlotte Tilbury. It was my first time using the product so I wasn’t sure what to expect but I am sold. A clay mask that doesn’t set hard, it has a pleasant scent that isn’t overwhelming. I washed it off using a hot flannel and my skin felt the best it has in a long time. It looked naturally matte (my skin can be like an oil slick) it feels comfortable and looks clearer straight away! I followed it up with a Charlotte Tilbury moisturiser. I’m interested to see what my skin is like over the next few days after this mask but it’s certainly impressed with instant results.
