Can you believe the weather we’ve had recently!? Finally, Spring has come to the UK. It seems like we’ve been waiting forever for it to warm up, it wasn’t that long ago that the UK… More
If you read my Monthly Favourites // May 2018, you’ll know that I went to The Body Shop for their Blogger VIP Event. As an avid Body Shop fan, I was pretty excited when I received an email in my inbox with the words ‘VIP Blogger Event’ in the title. I attended the private event at my local Body Shop in Oxford City Centre at their Westgate store.
Even though I live 45minutes down the road, this is only the second time I’ve been to Oxford! I love the design The Body Shop are now taking with all their stores, making them a lot fresher and exciting. Pretty much-bringing nature and what the company is all into their store. I was really excited to attend this event as it would officially be my first Blogger Event!
Can you believe that it’s already the first week of June? Time seems to be going very quickly at the moment, I even keep forgetting what day it is! I think that’s what happens when you keep yourself busy, I don’t know about you but I love keeping myself busy and during the Summer you’re busy every single weekend. Another thing that comes with a new month is setting yourself some new Goals or you can even continue your old ones if you’ve yet to achieve them!
Today I will be reflecting on the Goals I set myself for May and creating some new ones for June. I always try to set Goals that reflect on what I plan to do during the month as well as little Goals to achieve bigger Goals. Some things you want to achieve in life don’t happen overnight! May has definitely been a great month and things are starting to pick up, there’s been a range of things I have loved over the course of the month. You can learn about all of those here.
We’re heading in June, the official start of Summer! Recently though, it seems like we’ve skipped Spring and headed straight into Summer with the weather we’ve had. A new month means it’s time to share with you my favourites, for me May has been a busy month, I think every weekend I’ve been doing something. This is definitely not changing heading into June.
May has been a cracking month! Meaning I’m really excited to share my favourites with you but I’m sure you might just have seen these on my social channels.

during the month.
Now, I’m sure if you really know me, you’ll know that I’m a massive fan of cars, of course, this goes hand in hand with my love for Motorsports. For the past three years, I have been the happy owner of an MG ZR in what seems to be the only colour they produced, Trophy Blue. There are still plenty of these on the road but some look worse for wear than others.
Since owning my little baby, I have been in love with her and when I give her some love, her colour truly pops! I have always received compliments for my car, even though underneath, I know she’s not the best she could be. One thing I love doing is cleaning her, but to do this, you need the correct products to really make her look beautiful as well as keeping her in good nick especially as she’s fifteen years old this year!
It’s that time of year where it starts getting warmer with Spring finally here, us girls start to wear skirts and dresses. Unfortunately, we’ve been a little lazy with something over the Winter, yes that’s correct I’m talking about Shaving! Shaving can be a pain, it takes forever to shave everywhere and sometimes it even hurts, there’s one company out there, that’s trying to make this better for us ladies.
You can get anything through your letterbox these days as subscription boxes, from beauty, food, stationery to gin, flowers and cake. There’s nothing that can’t be delivered straight to your house monthly, something that every women needs can also be delivered monthly through your door. Thanks to Friction Free Shaving, you can lead a less irritating life when it comes to Shaving.
I don’t know about you but I love trying new products! You can come across a variety of different products that help you to feel and look good. I love supporting smaller companies as well as those that are Vegan and 100% natural. When I came across Organic Shop, I fell in love and just had to try their products! Especially when there are combinations like Raspberry & Acai, Avocado & Honey and Pomegranate & Patchouli.
Now Organic Shop reminds me of Faith in Nature with their range of amazing products for your hair and body, I fell in love with their Watermelon Collection. Just like Faith in Nature, all the products from Organic Shop are bursting full of natural ingredients, they even use traditional beauty combinations and recipes. The products are available exclusively in Tesco and on their official website.
Before I get to more about Organic Shop and their products, I just wanted to thank them for sending me their Coconut & Shea range.
It’s always nice walking into a car dealer showroom and being able to choose your very own car, but unfortunately, not all of us are able to purchase a brand new car! Sometimes we look at alternatives to purchasing a car, looking on sites like Gumtree or even popping down to your local garage. In reality, buying a second-hand car can be a very painful experience!
I can speak from experience as the first car I purchased, a Peugeot 106, failed its first MOT with myself. The cost to get the work done to get it road legal was more than the car was worth! Here, I learnt the hard way of buying second-hand, from now on there are some handy tips that I will be sticking with every time I think about purchasing a second-hand car.
I thought I would share those with you today!
I swear 2018 is going really quick, like can you believe it’s already May. This month is going to be a busy and hopefully fun one, I’m going to be creating some great memories this month with Yasmine. A new month means there’s a new Reading Challenge created by the Blogger Book Nook. This month’s Reading Challenge is a little different and something special.
May is the birthday month for both Tabitha and Abbey, Happy Birthday to the both of you! Meaning they wanted to pick their favourite genre Historical Fiction. Hop in your time machine and pick a read that’s set in the past – whether it’s as early as the 90’s or if you go back thousands of years, the choice is yours! I’m excited to indulge in a book of this genre, as it’s definitely an interesting genre.
We receive our monthly Reading Challenge from either Abbey or Tabitha, two of the kindest girls, on the Facebook page. Here we have some great conversations and are able to talk books! This is also the perfect opportunity to get to know new bloggers, ones that have a similar interest, books and reading.
For the past couple of years, I have been struggling with my acne, I haven’t been able to find anything that really helps! I tried the Tea Tree Skin Care range from The Body Shop but unfortunately, when I moved to Aylesbury nearly a year ago, it flared up again. Since then I’ve been on the search for something to calm down my skin and I think I’ve found something that’s slowly fixing it.
Recently, I was given a couple of samples from The Ordinary, I was a little sceptical about these products as I didn’t know how they would fair with my sensitive skin. When it comes to a skincare range, I have to be really careful and check the ingredient list. Before I share with you the products I have tried from The Ordinary that seem to be doing a really good job, I thought I would introduce the brand.
Do you ever stop and think about the things you would love to achieve in your lifetime?
I know I’ve done it a few times now, of course, we all would like more from our lives, it’s definitely good to have these aspirations. From here, you can plan your life and set a path that you want to achieve, if you have dreams, you learn how to achieve these and makes you fight for them.
It can be hard, especially if you don’t know how to achieve them, but surely if you put your mind to it, you can do it! Find those people or opportunities that will make your dreams happen. It’s also handy to have goals over the course of a year, that will lead to you achieving.
Today I thought I would share with you, what I would love to achieve.
