*Soap and Glory Lid Stuff Swatches!

I was very kindly gifted a lovely selection of Soap and Glory products, including their famous "Thick Fast" Mascara, "Supercat" and their new "Lid Stuff" Eyeshadow stick. 

Soap and Glory is one of those brands everyone knows for their bath and body range (especially at christmas)! 
When it comes to their makeup range I hadn't tried very much. As soon as I seen the Lid Stuff I knew I was going to love them!Anything that makes makeup application easier is a win win to me! 

The Lids Stuff are duo sticks one side being matte the other shimmery, making them the perfect combo together.  

First up is the "Grey All Dark" a chalky grey at one end and a lovely silver shimmer at the other! This would be perfect around Christmas time, yes I'm thinking about Christmas already!

Next is "Matte Rose" which is definitely my favourite! It's such a lovely warm dusky pink shade followed by a gorgeous golden brown. 

Lastly is "Coco Crush" which is such a classic set of colours, The brown shade is such a easy colour to wear along with the gold shimmer which can really take your look from day to night. 

Overall I'm super impressed by the Lid Stuff they are so amazingly creamy making them so easy to apply! They are the perfect product if your on the go or travel a lot! Even better is you have plans after work and want to add a little extra makeup. 

What is your favourite Soap and Glory product?

Dermalogica Skincare Edit

I have been working with Dermalogica now for around 2 years, there a brand I have loved and used for many many years previously. I have sensitive and dry skin and allergic to perfume so it can be quite difficult to find skincare that doesn't irritate my skin. Here are some of my favourite Dermalogica products that I couldn't now live without.

Pre Cleanse- Design to remove makeup and impurities this really is a staple product. I apply this to my dry face then apply water turning the oil milky and melting away any makeup. Its the most soothing pre cleanse I've ever used, after a long day at work this is so soft and gentle its like having a mini face massage thats the best way I can describe it.

Ultracalming Cleanser- This ph balanced ultra calming cleanser helps calm skin and combat redness and irritation. My skin is quite prone to spots which often leave red marks behind which can be stubborn and take a long time to disappear. I've really noticed the difference in my skin since swapping from the special cleanser. This is gentle on my skin and leaves my skin feeling super refreshed.

Daily Microfoliant- This is an absolute hero product! Its the most gentle microfoliant I have ever used. It aims to balance uneven skintone, calm the skin and leave you with radiant skin. This has been the biggest game changer in my skincare routine, it unclogs my pores, exfoliates my skin and leaves my skin feeling calm and clear.

Nighty Lip Repair- Created to hydrate, firm and restore the lips and the skin around the lips. I have always suffered from really sore lips due to my allergies my lips are always the first place effected. This has been a god send, I have been applying it before bed every night and my skins feel so plumped and hydrated in the morning. This is also one of their age smart products therefore it helps to reduce wrinkles and increase elasticity.

There are so many amazing products by Dermalogica if you're struggling to find the right skincare for you I would definitely recommend giving Dermalogica a try.

A dress for all occasions with FemmeLuxe

Is there anything better than finding a dress that you know you can wear time and time again for so many different occasions? For me this FemmeLuxe is definitely just that.

I dressed it down on holiday with a pair of sandals but this would look SO nice for a special occasion with a pair of heels. 

FemmeLuxe has so many great pieces at such a great price they always have the latest in fashion items available in a range of different size which is also great. 

I will definitely be shopping with them again for my upcoming holiday! 

Have you shopped on FemmeLuxe before? What’s your go to affordable clothes shop?

Hills Puppy Food

I/ Teddy was very kindly gifted the lovely hills Science Plan Puppy +1 food in Chicken flavour ( Teds favourite).

Ted is only 6 months old and having never having a dog before I have found the world of dog food quite overwhelming. Its important that I buy food that Ted enjoy but also contains the right nutritional value to keep him growing and healthy.

Hils Puppy food is designed to help your puppy grow big and strong containing an antioxidant formula to boost their immune system. This also caters to the needs of dogs who are nursing or pregnant which is great to. It helps to promote healthy skin and coat which is so important for me since Ted is only a puppy! Made from hight quality ingredients in easily digestible pieces to make for easier digestion Ted certainly doesn't struggle to ate the whole bowl in a second!

We slowly started to introduce the food into Teds diet and he absolutely loves it! Its all gone in a few minutes and I can rest knowing that he is getting everything he needs from his food. We have since been out and bought more food for Ted since he loves it so much.

What do you feed your dog?

Everything that you need to know about number plates

When it comes to owning a car, there are plenty of things that you need to know about and understand. One thing that you are likely to just take for granted is number plates. Number plates are released twice a year in the UK; on the 1st of March and the 1st of September.
Currently, new cars that are registered in the UK will have the number 69 as their two age identifiers, however as soon as March 2020 comes around, then the number plate identifier will be number 20.
So, what makes up the number plate?
You now know about the age identifiers that are on number plates; but what about the rest of the number plate?
The first two letters of number plate will tell you where the vehicle was registered. LA-LY relates to London and MA-MY covers Manchester and Merseyside.
The third and the fourth letters of the number plate are the age identifiers as we have already covered. The age identifier for cars that are registered in the March of a year will have the last two digits of the year, whilst those that are registered in September will have the year of registration plus 50. This approach has been the standard since 2001 and it means that you can easily work out the age of a vehicle simply by looking at the number plate.
The last three letters of a number plate are the only ones that are randomly selected, these will be allocated to those dealers who are selling the cars.
It is planned that this current system of creating number plates will run until February 2051. After this, the DVLA will review the process and will probably update the entire number plate registration system.
What about personalised number plates?
There are likely to be some restrictions on a personalised number plate, depending on the age of your vehicle.
When you still have the age identifier on your personalised number plate you are going to need to make sure that the number plate is only place on a vehicle that is the same age or newer. However, if you want to start your number plate with a singular letter, then you need to ensure that you check the old number plate system in order to see if it is suitable for your car.
Number plates have been around as long as there have been cars to buy. In fact, number plates have been a legal requirement on cars since 1904.  However, over the years there have been huge changes made to how they are made up and how they look.
Even if you are thinking about buying a personalised number plate, then you still need to think about how your number plate fits in with the regulations and ensure that you are always the right side of the law.

Would you consider buying a New Reg?
