Bloggermail; influenster living proof box πŸ’†πŸ½πŸ’‡πŸ½

So a few weeks ago I received this lovely package! Thankyou influenster & living proof for letting my try this beauty complimentary ☺️ 

I love haircare products and I recently have had to neglect my hair a little bit with all the building & DIY work we have been doing. I realised I hadn’t had a face or hair mask in 6 months! So getting a dry shampoo to try was perfect timing. 

The scent of this was lovely! Smells very fresh, not like shampoo more soapy, but still equally as clean & lovely! I keep getting wafts of it as I walk around πŸ˜‚ 

The packaging is spot on. I love anything that’s fairly simple. Not too much going on & this really suits a shampoo product I feel. I love the little slogan they have on the bottle ‘Perfect Hair Day’. It sure is the only PHD that I have πŸ™ˆ

Now for the actual product. Maybe I am using a bit too much or something but I don’t like it 😩 I really want to, but it just leaves my hair feeling thick & heavy. So obviously the greasiness has gone, but now I want to wash my hair because it feels dry at the roots. I can’t lie to you guys, I hope others had a better experience, but I wouldn’t buy it. 

What did you think?! 

Lifestyle; it’s our anniversary! πŸ’žπŸ’Œ

Can you believe it?! 2 years together! Honestly time flies when you’re having fun! 

We didn’t celebrate as much as we did last year, but we have a lot less money at the minute πŸ˜‚ so we said we would just get cards for each other. Sam got me the best card I have ever seen!!! He knows the little mermaid is my fav film πŸ’πŸ½ & I just went for a standard soppy one πŸ™ˆ 


I cooked dinner for us & we spent the evening watching TV & films, cuddled up on the sofa with a gin too, of course! Also plenty of chocolate was consumed 🍸 I cooked us prawn cocktail for a starter & then a burger with homemade chips πŸ” so yum! 

On Saturday evening we did go out for a meal to one of our favourite places, but we took his mum & dad too as a Thankyou for all they have done for us recently. So I did get to dress up 😍 We decided to combine it because if not we would be piling on the pounds πŸ˜‚ we went to The Lifeboat Inn, in Thornham. I would definitely recommend anyone to go here it’s so lovely… Plus they let dogs in πŸ™„πŸ™Š 


I hope you all had a lovely weekend ☺️ 

Lifestyle; we had time off β›±β˜€οΈ

Myself & Sam had last week off work so I thought I’d share with you how we spent our week! Sorry to bore you all.. 

Monday; 

We literally got up & went to the gym for 6.30am, yes we’re nuts! We then got home had breakfast & started doing some jobs! I literally did like 3 loads of washing & ironing. Plus I mopped the floors & hoovered! We had our headboard being delivered that day & the coffee table for the lounge. Sam built the table & put the new headboard on, because he’s a babe… Duh! 

Tuesday; 

I got up, had a doctors appointment (nothing major just a pill check) went to the gym & then popped to the bank. Sam waited at home for the BT engineer to come as we now have BT internet & TV. It wasn’t all successful as the you view box needs some sort of adaptor, yeah I’m not that tech savvy, sorry guys πŸ™ˆ we had a few more deliveries coming that day so we had to wait in.

Wednesday; 

We had a tesco delivery first thing at 8am so we got ourselves ready whilst waiting for that. We then went into town, got ourselves some more plates, a doormat, toiletries etc. Sam then had a physio appointment & after that we made our way to the coast! We stopped in Wells, had a drink in the sunshine too of course! 🍸 We did have a few games in the arcades too, I’m a big kid really! On the way home we went to Thornham & stopped at Eric’s for fish & chips. Honestly the tastiest fish & chips I’ve ever had!! 


Thursday; 

Again, started our day at the gym πŸ’ͺ🏽 then we took Sam’s mum to an appointment later that morning & whilst we waited for her to finish we went & had some lunch! We visited a place called the lean pantry co, it’s a place that has a lot of gluten free, vegan option kinds of meals! Brilliant for me being dairy free πŸ’πŸ½ look how yum this was! 


Friday; 

We spent today doing jobs around the house, washing, cleaning & ironing etc. Sam washed the cars, because he’s honestly the best boyfriend ever! We then nipped back to his mum & dads so he could watch football, of course I spent my evening with the cat on my lap 

Saturday & Sunday; 

On Saturday morning we did a few jobs before I decided to have the most amazing bubble bath & completely pamper myself! Sam went to watch his team play football as he’s got a knee injury at the moment so is unable to play bless him. We the went to a wedding reception that evening to celebrate his friends wedding. We didn’t get a photo together 😩 but we had so much fun. A few too many cocktails were had that evening. 


Sunday we weren’t hungover, just knackered. We had a next delivery come so Sam then built those… We now have nesting tables & a shoe cupboard! πŸ™ŒπŸ½ 

How are you spending your summer? Are you having time at home or going away?

Blogging; A few tips for beginners πŸ‘ŒπŸ½πŸ“

So by no means am I the best blogger, or the most successful but I do have a few tips for some beginners. I wish I had known a few of these when I first started myself.

First tip; Make friends πŸ‘­

I honestly wish I had chatted to people earlier on & been a little more confident with getting my blog out there. I have made some of the best friends because of my blog. I set up a whatsapp group a few months back full of some lovely blogger girls & just girls who love to chat with us all. They love being supportive & reading my blog, as I do theirs too.

Second tip; be confident πŸ’πŸ½

I think I had my blog hidden from people I knew for the first 6 months, which to me seems silly now. This meant I didn’t really put it on any social media! You need to be confident & love what you are writing. Trust me the blogging community is huge so there will always be someone who loves your blog. Also sharing it on social media has done me the world of good! These are my stats, you can see the growth 😍😍 I started blogging November 2016 & we are now August 2018. I am almost at the same amount of views for what I had the whole of 2017.


Third tip; drafts πŸ“

I swear by making a draft every time a good idea pops into my head! I literally just write a sentence or a few words that will help remind me what it was that I was wanting to write about. This has helped me sooo much, it means I will always have a blog post in mind & don’t need to worry too much about writers block. At the minute I have 29 drafts πŸ˜‚ 

Fourth tip; do what you love πŸ’ž

There are a lot of different things that happen in the blogging community. Just know that if you don’t want to join in you don’t have to. Join in on the things you love! By this I mean, there tends to be a lot of posts about ‘blogger awards’ which are just like tags, so you answer the questions etc. If you love the idea it can help you grow, but if you don’t love it then just find what you do love? If that makes sense πŸ™ˆ I personally love getting involved in Blogmas! 

Fifth tip; photos πŸ“Έ

I find a lot of my blog posts do really well if the photos are enticing. If they don’t grab someone’s attention, then sometimes the post doesn’t do so well. I absolutely love getting the photos for my posts, it’s my favourite part! But honestly my photos used to be pretty terrible, it takes time to get the hang of it all, I mean look at the difference in these…


I hope this was helpful for people ☺️ 

Lifestyle; we have finally moved in πŸ‘πŸ”‘Β 

Wooohoo! Finally! I am now living with Sam 😍


So far so good everyone πŸ’πŸ½ I asked Sam a few weeks ago what he was most excited about when it came to us living together, he replied ‘eating what I want when I want’. Babe.. I meant about me πŸ˜‚ although that’s what I was thinking too. So who wants a tour around the house?! Of course you do!!

HALLWAY; it’s completely empty. We need a doormat desperately & the cupboard we’ve ordered needs to hurry up πŸ˜‚ 


LOUNGE; we’re just waiting for some nesting tables to be delivered in this room!


OUR BEDROOM; we have no furniture in here yet so we took Sam’s bedside tables for now. We’re having the furniture built in soon hopefully ☺️


SPARE BEDROOM; this has all my furniture in it & the only thing we need to do in here is brick the door up (which I think you can just about see) & hang some curtains.


BATHROOM; this is my absolute favourite!! The only thing we need in here is a mirror over the sink πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ but how pretty is that! 


KITCHEN; this is Sam’s favourite room. Completely finished in here 😍


DINING ROOM; it’s stunning! We’re going to hang a copper mirror & Sam wants to put a tv  up too.


CONSERVATORY; the only thing we have in here are lights. We’re undecided on furniture as it will fade in the sun.


So, yeah as you can see we still have a lot to do. But we have come a long way! It’s been a lot of hard work but it’s been so worth it 😍😍 if you want to see a post on the before & after’s let me know!
