Make Up Revolution Giveaway #Selfie Palette



My last beauty giveaway was a massive hit, I also asked what prizes you would like to see next on a giveaway. A lot of you said Chocolate but in this weather I think it would melt before it got to you, so I'm going to leave that for the cooler weather. 

I went for an everyday Palette from Make Up Revolution with 10 super pigmented pressed pigments. It's also handbag size and contains full size and FREE Mini Eye Primer. I love the holographic #Selfie slogan on the front.

Horror Block - June



So this week Horror Block arrived on my doorstep, I already had concerns about it with Scream and Cthulhu being the hints Horror Block has given out. This is my 7th box and it's been such a disappointment this month.

The first item was a small Cthulhu plush. I've never saw the game in action he was supposed to be from and honestly it's just really not my cup of tea at all. 

The T-shirt was a Survive the night - The Purge. I love the movies and they are fab,  but it's not a t-shirt I would ever wear. I actually thought it was the guy from the film house of a 1000 corpses. 

Scream reaction figure - I have collected the Predator ones of these but Ghostface wasn't on my want list to be totally honest.

Alien ice cube tray - This was the only item I loved and it's been handy with the warmer weather too. 

Last Item is the Rue Morgue magazine is always a good read. 




So far the only hint for this month is Buffy, which again I'm not a massive fan. I'm going to see the other hint then decide if I'm going to cancel or not.

Summer Wishlist With Excel



My wardrobe is so dull at the moment. I seriously would love a colour burst for the summer. I've put together a summer Wishlist with some of my favourite items from Excel

Love the lime green skater dress & this coloured jersey dress, both are bright and cool for hot weather. These Ted Baker flip flops would be great for evening wear then the wedges for night time. The Vivienne Westwood clutch is gorgeous and I think it would go with both outfits. Check out these stunning Michael Kors watch perfect summer accessory.





I actually did Lexie a little summer Wishlist too, how cool would we look together. The pink converse are so adorable aren't they?

Paddy's Bathroom Review.




One of my favourite things I love to review is bath stuff for the kids, they love the bath trying new products and it's great getting them to take care of their bodies. Paddy's Bathroom sent a massive hamper for the kids to try and test out.



Paddy’s Bathroom recently opened its doors to the world’s first Bubble Barber for two days only in London. It was a great success and with a menu of bubbly barnets to choose from, little ones were given the chance to sport their favourite celebrity hairstyles in bubble form, ranging from David Beckham’s Mohawk to Princess Leia’s Space Age Buns! See a selection of images attached. I'm so gutted we couldn't go it looked so much fun. 


I didn't notice at first until the products came that they was actually very similar to Ella's Kitchen  packaging. It is actually the same founder and has made ranges for both of his children. Ella's kitchen for his daughter & Paddy's bathroom for his son.

I like how the products are natural and organic and are gentle on skin. My daughters skin can't take to harsh bath products anymore she gets very dry and itchy. The products are super gentle and sting free on eyes.  

Included in the hamper was 

Bubbles
Two squirty bath toys
Bubbly stuff bubble bath - Smells like tangerine
Stuff for shiny hair - shampoo - Smells like lemons 
Foamy stuff - hair and body mousse - smells like rosey apples
Squirty stuff - hair and body wash - smells like squishy mangos 
Squirty stuff - hair and body wash - smells like juicy pineapples 
Stuff for hands - foaming hand wash - smells like squeaky clean lemons



All the products have different textures which the kids loved, lots of bubbles which stay around for a while which is always a great bonus. I find with bubble baths that the bubbles disappear before you have even got the kids in. 

The shampoo is amazing and does leave hair super shiny. My daughter hates having her hair washed and she hasn't minded this so far. Super squirty stuff with squirty bottles with the pump action foam, has been the most fun. The kids have loved squeezing and squeezing until and the fluffy foam has come out the cap. 

The kids have been great washing there hands with the foaming hand wash and it smells really nice too. Foaming hair and moose has been super fantastic, getting them to do a few pumps then to wash themselves has been a good help with getting my daughter to wash herself all over.

I loved the catchy scents for all the products they are all familiar fruits that the kids know. The kids have loved testing out the new Paddys bathroom range. 

My son opted for the David Beckham look, while my daughter wanted Princesses hair.  




Not only can your little ones benefit from the new Paddy’s Bathroom range, but a donation from every sale goes towards our Drop Buy Drop programme, helping kids in Rwanda get access to clean, safe water!

What Has Lexie Been Wearing This Week. Trendy Tot Thursday (#TT_Thursday)



It's Trendy Tot Thursday  (#TT_Thursday) again, it's been so hot this week Lexie has just mainly been in her H&M summer £2.99 dresses. This morning we had strip down to our local library with the school and she decided she wanted to be all in pink. She didn't say very still for a photo this week either, hehe

The H&M skirt is just a plain straight design, it has a patterned flower design inside and it's very lightweight.

The top has a cute print of a horse on with her name printed on too. I won this on a blog competition when she was small and I found it while I was sorting out her clothes a few weeks ago. It's from simply colours.

Sweet Cecily's Elderflower & Almond Hand Cream Review




I did a post not long ago about what 5 luxuries I would take on a dessert island with me. One of those items was hand cream. I literally have a hand cream in every room and one in my handbag so I have one wherever I go, I use it in all seasons and Its something that's always around. I have really dry hands because I wash them hands so much throughout the day. Sweet Cecily's asked me to review one of there hand creams. I reviewed some of there lip balms last year and I thought they was fantastic, read about it here. 

Sweet Cecilys is a online place to purchase lovely natural skincare products which are all handmade on the North Yorkshire Moors.  They believe in only using the finest ingredients,  products are free from Parabens, Petrochemicals, harmful preservatives and SLS. None of their products are tested on animals, nor are any of the ingredients. 

The item came in a little cloth bag with a little note luggage tag. I like little extra packing like this as it shows that every order is important and that little bit extra goes a long way. The cream comes in a small plastic tub with a screw on lid. I'm so used to squeezy tubes that I don't think I've ever had an hand cream like this before. 



The scent of the hand cream is elderflower and almond, it's not something I normally would of put together but it actually smells really nice. You get the blast of floral then nutty, it actually works very well together. I've noticed Elderflower has become very popular lately and it's been used with a lot of different things now. It isn't normally a scent I would pick up but its growing on me. The hand cream is a decent thickness, smooths easily and absorbs really quick. It doesn't leave a greasy layer and leaves your hands feeling refreshed and smooth. 




RRP -£6.95
