‘Beauty in a Bottle’, Generation Skincare*

[AD GIFTED]

Who can say no to new products? I am always on the lookout for products to try, you never know what you might come across. An email recently dropped in my inbox from Generation Skincare introducing their New Facial Serum; they call it ‘Beauty in a Bottle‘, with a request to review on An Ocean Glimmer. When they mentioned the lovely Sweet Orange scent, I couldn’t resist!

‘Generation A’ Facial Serum is a lightweight, all-natural serum that contains Vitamin B, C and E, Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic Acid. Vitamin C helps to prevent signs of ageing before they even begin, to hydrate and rejuvenate the skin. Alongside the Vitamin CHyaluronic Acid works to retain water and to keep the skin super hydrated.

Book Review // The Colonel and the Bee

I was recently contacted by Patrick Canning, to read and review one of his books, The Colonel and the Bee. After reading the blurb, I was very intrigued! It sounded like my type of book and genre to read. I am always on the search for new books to read and I’m always willing to try new books. My book reviews have decreased a little over the last couple of months. Unfortunately, I haven’t participated in many Book Blog Tours.

Not only did the blurb sell The Colonel and the Bee to me but these two snappy reviews:

Around the World in Eighty Days meets Wizard of OzLara Croft, steampunk style.

I am really happy to share with you The Colonel and the Bee and my review, of course, like my normal reviews I will be sharing the full blurb and bio for the author. At the moment this is the only book review I have lined up for the next month. It seems like Book Blog Tours have gone silent on the books I am interested in. I might just have to read and review the books I’ve had on my Goodreads to-read shelf for a little while.

I hope you enjoy this review, shall we begin?

Review: My Personalised Case

Just over a month ago, I upgraded my phone from a Samsung Galaxy S7 to their latest model the S9, of course, this meant I needed a new case to protect my phone! I am a massive sucker for great and reasonable priced phone cases, it can be quite hard to find one that matches my style. There are so many on the market, how do you choose between them all?

What if there was a service where you can personalise your own case? It takes all the searching out of the equation for you, you’re able to decorate the case however you like. Want to include a family favourite photo? How about a cute image of your pet? Even something simple like a fancy print with your initials. There are a few companies out there that can provide this service.

When My Personalised Case contacted me about a collaboration, I jumped at the chance!
