Keep your car new

11 July 2017
Source: Here
Todays post is going to be all about keeping your car new, a lot of people love it when they get a new car (who wouldnt!?) but how many actually ensure that their car stays as good as new?

Cars have changed the way we do everything and are a crucial part of our day to day life but if not taken care of they can be a very very dangerous thing, we’ve all heard horror stories and terrible road accidents that have sadly taken peoples lives.

There are many different ways in which you can prevent these terrible accidents from happening:

Car Servicing
This is so important, and includes a range of things from tyres, brakes, exhaust and oil change. 

Tyre maintenance is so important as the tyres are what keep you in contact with the road. Tyre pressure is very important to ensure they don't ware and tear too fast, most manuals from the car will tell you the correct pressure for your car but if unsure always double check. You're car has to be fitted with the correct type for its use as this is the law and its essential you know when you need new tyres. 

MOT Tests
These are so so important and again is the law so make sure you always get your mot when needed. By not taking a MOT test your not only putting your own life at danger put you are putting other motorists lives at danger as you never know what could be wrong with your car.

If you’re looking for any vehicle service and new tyres then book Online at Ossett Tyre House website.
 They offer a wide range of services from, MOT Tests, Tyres, vehicle security and vehicle diagnostics.

Southport!

10 July 2017
Every Spring/ Summer I visit Southport, for those of you who don't know its not too far from Liverpool and is a seaside resort. I love taking a trip there every summer and sitting on the beach eating an ice cream, there really is nothing better. It has the few shops you would expect in your normal town and a few unique little shops. 
Its perfect for families as it has a beach, arcade, outside gold, fair ground etc.. so it makes for a great day out, especially when the sun is shining! 
So here is a a photo heavy post of some photos I took , if you ever get the chance to visit in Spring or Summer I would definitely recommend that you take a day trip there!
















Hope you enjoyed, let me know where your favourite place to visit is in summer. 

Organic Products

5 July 2017


I was recently sent a range of Organyc beauty products, as you can probably guess all their products are organic which I love, there aren't enough around on the market and I'm all for using anything organic if possible. This range has won awards for the best organic products 2017, so obviously all sounds good! 


The first product I tried was the organic ear buds, firstly this box comes with 200 ear buds which is pretty standard, they are made using organic cotton and the stems are made from recycled cardboard as well as all packaging being recyclable. Overall I really liked using these, the stem is slightly less strong as normal ear buds but the ear bud itself works just as well as normal ear buds but with the added bonus of them being organic.


The next product is cotton pads, these are something I use on a regular basis so I couldn't wait to give these a go, this pack contains 70 small pads. The only downside for me about these is that they are small so I do have to use two but overall I love these they feel supper soft on your skin and it feels amazing to know they are made out of organic cotton so will be gentle and kind to you're skin.


Lastly are these cotton balls, you get 100 in this pack so is a large pack. I don't use these on a regular basis but its always nice to have these in. These are just as fluffy as you would expect and are not much different to normal cotton balls but again these have the added benefit of being organic.

You can find more about organyc and their products here.

Favourite Things To Watch This Summer!

27 June 2017

I thought Id put together a little post of all of the things I am and am going to be watching this summer, considering Ive finished my 3rd year at uni and will be starting my masters degree in September Im looking forward to binge watching some tv shows and films this summer. My favourite thing to do is snuggle up and put my tv on. Panasonic making watching tv that much better with there  4K TV Panasonic they make you feel like your in a cinema but in your own home, the high definition is one that cant be beaten especially when watching films you feel like your right there in the middle of the action.

Top 3 favourite tv shows right now:

Love Island
Im hoocked, its the first year I've watched this show but i don't know why i didn't sooner I'm literally obsessed from spending my day checking is it nearly love island time to tagging my friends in endless love island memes i literally cant get enough.

How I Met Your Mother
I watched the whole show about a year and a half ago and i have found myself rematching the show, its just one of those easy programs to watch that you can guarantee will put you in such a good mood.

Pretty Little Liars
Ive been watching this for 3 years now and i cant quite believe on Wednesday it will have come to an end, i seriously think i might cry I've got so invested in this show, followed all the cast on snapchat, twitter, Instagram basically any form of social media they have and I'm genuinely gutted to see the end.

Top 3 favourite films right now: 

Baywatch
Im a sucker for anything that stars Zac Efron and I love any cheesy film like this so I knew I would love this and i definitely did, such an easy film to watch and enjoy.

Safehaven
This is such a classic for me, one of my all time favourites and I recently re watched this film and fell back in love with it all over again its such a great rom com but filled with drama too.

Toy Story
I recently watched the first Toy Story again and I can see me watching the second and third sometime this month, its such a classic film that you cant help but love.

If you want to check out the range of tv's Panasonic does then you can find them here.


House Of Watches: Sekonda

24 June 2017





 I was recently sent over this beautiful watch by the lovely people at House Of Watches; for anyone who doesn't know they are a online trader of a wide range of watches from high end luxury watches. I must say I love the layout of the website its just one of them you could sit and scroll for hours because its just so easy to navigate through.

The watch I received was the Sekonda Edition White Strap Watch, Sekonda is a brand that I love I think there watches are gorgeous and so reasonably priced. I love the white leather strap, which is so soft, the white strap is very versatile and so will go with most outfits. I also love the fact that the metal is rose gold because I mean what blogger doesn't love a bit of rose gold, I think it may be in our blood (hahaha). Priced at £29.99 I think this is a bargain and would make the perfect gift for any loved one, Id definitely be over the moon to receive this as a gift!

Also if you order from House Of Watches then you get free delivery and they offer a full refund if you are not happy with your item.

You can find House Of Watches here. 

Fathers Day Gift Guide with Snapfish!

8 June 2017

Snappish kindly asked me if id like to work with them on a fathers day post and of course I jumped at the chance, who doesn't love personalised gifts? For anyone who hasn't heard of Snapfish, where have you been living? They are online store that offer a number of services from simply printing out your photos to personalised gifts including: calendars, mugs, cushions, cups etc... the list is endless, so check them out if you haven't already or if you looking to spoil someone this fathers day. 


Firstly I chose this Table-Top Panel, these are something I hadn't ever seen before but I love the idea of them, they  are very versatile as come with a little peg to stand the panel up on in any position you would like. I think these are a great gift, they would look perfect in your home or at the office and for £9.99 can you really complain. 



This is my favourite of all the gifts, who doesn't love a personalised calendar? I know my dad will love this perked up on his desk so he can brag about 'his twins' and have photos to show them. The thing I loved most about when ordering this is the fact you can choose what month you want the calendar to start so you your not missing half of the year that has previously gone already you can start it at June 2017, this would come in handy when ordering presents in advance too! Also another thing I really liked about making this is that your able to customise so much of the calendar, each of the text elements on the page are able to be personalised to you making it that little bit more special. This is priced at £10.99.


Again who doesn't love a personalised card, so simple but it just looks like you've put in that little bit more effort. Snapfish offer a wide range of designs to get you started and to have a play round with so even if your not the most creative person you will find it pretty simple to come up with a design your sure to love, these start at £1.99.

Kiss Faux Mink Lashes Review

18 May 2017

kiss lashes mink lash couture

kiss lashes mink lash couture

I was recently sent over some lashes from KISS, I received two of their faux mink lashes out of there 6 from this range. Kiss also have a range of normal standard lashes which are slightly cheaper if this is of interest to you. I received 'Gala' and 'Little Black Dress'.

Overall I like these lashes because they are mink but is great because its not actual real mink which is always a bonus.  They have a weight less feel about them so they don't feel like there dragging your lashes down which again is great as it makes them feel comfortable, the lash band is also knot free making it super easy to apply! The lashes also come in a little plastic portable case to ensure you can keep them protected after use and it makes them perfect for traveling.

These ones in particular cost £7.99 and are available here from Superdrug, I think this is a pretty reasonable price for mink lashes especially as they can be reused up to 10 times making it less than a pound per use, bargain.

kiss lashes mink gala

The 'Gala' lashes are full on they have a lot of lashes on the band and are quite long so they create a dramatic look, I would say these are more for special occasions and definitely not for every day use but for a special occasion these will look fab!

kiss lashes mink little black dress

The 'Little Black Dress' lashes are little more sparse than the others but are very long with a lot of volume, these lashes are made to help create a smokey eye effect without having to actually use eyeshadow but gives a natural look.

Overall I would recommend these especially if you want mink lashes without real mink or you just don't want to pay the price of real mink lashes.  What products have you been loving recently?

Don't forget you can find these at Superdrug where they also have 3 for 2 on kiss lashes right now!

GULP- Give Up Loving Pop Campaign

12 May 2017
Gulp- Give Up Loving Pop Campaign

Today I wanted to talk about a new campaign well new to me it originally started in 2015, Gulp standing for Give Up Loving Pop. This campaign was created by Food Active with aim to raise awareness of just how harmful sugary drinks can be and hopefully make people think twice about how many fizzy drinks they consume.

The facts
* Regular consumption of fizzy drinks is strongly associated with with being overweight, diabetes     and tooth decay.
*Sugary drinks are the biggest source of added sugar in young peoples diet
*If everything else in their diet is equal a person who has a can of coke a day adds an extra 14.5 pounds per year from calories alone.
* Each can of coke contains 9 cubes of sugar 
Personally I think them facts alone are enough to make you give up, Im not telling you to cut them out completely but to try and replace some sugary drinks with water is a great start or even diet or sugar free fizzy drinks is a compromise. Often these sugary drinks aren't fizzy so don't let that catch you out, sugar is hidden with it having over 50 different names. 

The GULP campaign is challenging you to completely give up sugary drinks, think you can do it? Sign up here.

Im going to give this a go as its something I've wanted to do or a while and I will let you all know how I get on! Home2Office is also getting involved to see how click here.

For more info you can visit Gulp and see how you can get involved!

Would you consider giving up sugary drinks?

topshop shoe boots
Topshop
 It was a student night in Liverpool so I picked up two new pairs of shoes from Topshop, I thought the espadrilles would be perfect for summer and I love the shoe boots to go with a pair of jeans to be a little more dressy. I also picked up the top from River Island as I have been loving embroidery recently so I thought i'd embrace the trend!

I also picked up this gingham top on Ali express for less than £10, I have been seeing so many companies sell this on for three times the price when in reality they are just ordering it from China and selling it on, its actually been annoying me a lot recently!

kate spade macbook case
Tk Max

How cute is this Kate Spade macbook case I managed to get in TK Max for only £15 from £70 how good of a bargain is this, I was so happy when I seen this because everyone always seems to get some amazing things from TK Max and I always seem to miss out!

dream sign
Debenhams
I seen this in Debenhams and had to get it straight away, it reminds me of the similar west elm one that lots of bloggers seemed to have and its safe to say that this has made a few appearances in my Instagram posts.
