Quick, Easy and Tasty tea with Judge Kitchenware

singapore noodles

cooking noodles

judge frying pans

I have been working with Judge Kitchenware for some time, I have tried numerous products of theirs and I have never been disappointed.  I recently received their non stick frying pan and I was very impressed.  The pan is large in size and also very deep so its perfect for doing any batch cooking or for families. Nothing stuck to the pan which I no should be standard with a non stick pan but a lot of the time its not. It comes with a 10 year non stick guarantee which I think is such a good idea too! 
The pans have a soft grip handle too which is great. 

They have a range of different pan including crepe, woks, saucepans and frying pans. As well as many other different kitchen appliances. There range is quite affordable and amazing quality.

My favourite thing to make is a stir fry, I used Singapore noodles, chicken, bacon and some spinach its the most simplest thing in the world to make but always so quick to make when you don't have much time and it bound to be yummy.

So Valentines day is just round the corner wether your spending it with your loved one or just need an excuse to buy yourself a gift, I have put together some of my favourite beauty products that may help give you some ideas!

First up is for any fake tan lover The St Tropez Self Tan Purity body moouse and face mist- Now I never normally wear fan tan but this stuff I cant get enough of. It gives such a natural finish as if you've been on holiday for a few days! It doesn't stain bedding or pyjamas and smells of summer. Anyone who likes fake tan but doesn't want anything too heavy and normally hates the smell will love love this! This would be such a good gift.

Neal and wolf Ritual giftset- Now this gift would be perfect for anyone who loves anything hair care! It comes in a washbag that is amazing quality and really durable. Inside you get the daily cleansing shampoo and conditioner, this particular set is created to leave hair looking healthy, it is infused with milk proteins to deliver a gorgeous shine. They have other sets including alpha collection, harmony and nurture, designed for different hair needs. I personally would love to recieve this as a gift!

Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks- What can I say? You really cant go wrong with a CT lipstick can you?! There shade ranges are amazing and the packaging is absolutely stunning. These three shades are my personal favorites Pillow Talk, Very Victoria and Penelope Pink! I dont know any beauty lover in my life who wouldn't love to receive one of these, they also do great Christmas gift sets with mini lipsticks in too!

Rubis tweezers- Now these are perfect for the beauty lover who has everything and would make a great little stocking filler! This particular pair have the cute rose gold design but they also come in lots of other colours too. They are honestly the bets tweezers I have ever used they are so sharp and precise and make taming the brows a lot easier job.

The candle club candles- Who doesn't love a good candle? I recently discovered the Candle Club in the New Me Clinic in Liverpool and then found them on instagram ( Links HERE) They sell individual candles, gift sets, diffusers and car fragrances! There packaging is amazing and the scents are unbelievable they do perfume scents such as black opium and creed! You can order from their Instagram they would make great gifts all year round!

Is Pixi Glow Tonic worth the hype?

pixi glow tonic

Pixi Glow Tonic is recommended by so many people and claims to do wonders for the skin. Described as a light and nourishing toner that balances the complexion, containing glycolic acid to get rid of impurities and dead skin. It also contains  Ginseng to improve circulation and Aloe Vera to replenish moisture. 

I was so so lucky to be sent my own extra large personalised bottle, I had seen a few people with this last year and was so jealous! I was so shocked to receive one myself this year as I had actually never tried it before!

I have been using it every night for a month now along with my usual skincare routine and I've really enjoyed it. Its feel lovely and light on the skin but also makes my skin feel so fresh and awake. I feel a tiny little sting when I first put it on but to be honest I quite like it as it makes me feel like its actually working!
Its not the cheapest product on the market at £18 for 250ml they're are definitely cheaper dupes around but none I have tried work as well as this. 

I did also receive minis of the new retinol and rose tonic, I have used the retinol tonic a few times now and have been quite impressed so I'm excited to try the rose tonic too!

St Tropez purity bronzing water

st tropez purity bronzing water

Now fake tanning isn't something I do all the time nor is it something I've tried a lot either. I only ever really do for occasions like graduation or birthdays as I'm so so pale and don't really like the normal orange tone to fake tan.
I had heard so many people mainly Lydia Emillen talking about the St Tropez purity duo and thought they sounded amazing. I have tried St Morez and Rimmel in the past and thought both were okay and gave me an all round okay colour but I wanted something I could use more often but was a little more subtle.

The St Tropez tanning mousse has been perfect for my pale skin! I tend to use it when I come out the shower and just use a mit to apply the mouse evenly all over. I have to admit, it did take some getting used to as the mousse is clear it has a little shimmer to it so you can see were you have put it a little bit. It develops within 4-8  and doesn't leave any stains or marks on your pyjamas and sheets which is a bonus! It isn't at all streaky either!
Once developed it gives the loveliest most natural glow as if you have been away in the sun for week. Its definitely not a dark tan so if thats what your looking for then this won't be for you. 

It last around 3-4 days so great for any special events that you have coming up! The only thing I don't like was the tropical smell, it still smells slightly like fake tan and not very tropical!

I have recently bought the face mist to match but I have only used it once so far but I'm looking forward to trying that out after being so impressed with the bronzing water!

Autumn skincare saviours for dry skin

lanicon nipple cream

body shop hand cream

Burt bees lip balm

When autumn comes around I always have a little change up of my skincare. I have extremely dry skin which gets progressively worse as the cold weather comes in. I thought I would share my autumn skincare must haves especially if you have dry skin like me.

L Oreal hydra genius - I love love love this product its quite light but really helps to inject some moisture in my skin, I normally have to use heavier creams than this and often ones from the doctors but I love putting this on of a morning because my makeup as it doesn't feel to thick and heavy on the skin. It smells amazing and really calms my skin, its so affordable too I would definitely recommend.

HPA Lanolin- Now this is actually a nipple cream but it has so many other amazing uses too. This is perfect for any areas of really dry and cracked skin its so moisturising and really helps to repair broken skin. I have been using this on my lips which have been cracked, dry and sore as the cold weather has drawn in, its left my lips so nourished and soft!

Simple hydrating oil- This is quite a new purchase for me but so far I am loving it. I always love oils when the weather is colder. They really hydrate the skin but a lot of oils really irritate my skin like the kehils midnight recovery oil. I decided to try the simple oil as it is fragrance free and so far my skin feels so hydrated and soft I have really been enjoying using it.

Body shop satsuma hand cream- With having eczema my skin is already really dry but I am the worst at remembering to moisture my hands. I recently picked this up free in a magazine and I love it, it is my favourite body shop scent! I have been using this every morning and night and have really notice a difference.

Burt Bees lip balm- Burt bees are my go to brand when it comes to saving my lips. My lips are always pealing during winter and autumn so I always carry lip balm with me and Burt Bees is always my lip balm of chose. I always put it on before going out in the cold and does a great job of protecting my lips!

Dermalogica skin hydrating masque- I have been using this product overnight twice a week and skin feels amazing when I wake up its so soft and smooth and much brighter. I have loved trying out the dermaloigca products they are definitely going to be a staple going through to winter.
