Are we in the same boat?

Good afternoon friends,

How is this beautiful Sunday treating you?

I have to jump right in and ask, Is it just me or does anyone feel like they’re all over the show??

The past 3 months I’ve really been struggling. You can only push yourself so hard.

The uncertainty of life, (I don’t mean in a spontaneous way) has thrown me off. Recently my mood has plummeted, then shot to the sky the next minute.

The past couple of months have been trying, with a mixture of emotions and events, I haven’t been in the right frame of mind to blog and didn’t want to post for the hell of it.

There have been a few topics that I’ve missed, but mental health and self care is more important than keeping up with a few posts which relate to the season.

I’ve been feeling constantly lethargic, little under the weather and finding it difficult to stay focused

I haven’t been able to shake the feeling of being tired, achy and low energy.

A few weeks ago we lost a family member which is always difficult, especially during covid but thankfully we were able to attend the funeral to pay our respects and say goodbye, which I am extremely grateful that we were able to.

I’ve mixed up my diet, have made an effort to exercise regularly, take my vitamins, drink more water and make the most of getting out in the fresh air when I can.

I have a solid group of support around me and have comfort in my family, friends, and surroundings, and don’t know if this is all stemming from Covid, but does anyone else feel a little lost and not themselves?

If you can relate to anything I’ve said, please reach out to me, or if you have any advice it’s greatly appreciated

Roccabox £5 Mystery box

Good afternoon friends,

Today we’re unboxing an absolute steal, a £5 mystery box.

The Mystery boxes are normally £10, however I was sent an email that they were now available for £5 for a limited time, with p&p for £3.95

All mystery boxes contain a selection of 5/6 items from previously monthly boxes, therefore you may receive repeat items if you are already a subscriber.

Original Nipple Balm
Deluxe mini 4ml RRP £3.99

Yes you read that right, Nipple Cream.I read it 3 times and then asked my fiance to do the same.
This Paraben, fragrance, sulphate, and silicone free cream is multi use, vegan, cruelty free and
Made from Australian free roaming sheep’s wool.

The balm is thick, but not at all sticky, with a light lemon scent. I used a little on my lips, and was pleasent enough.
My only issue with the product was not the size, but the lack of product in the tube. And the name, again, Nipple cream, why?

‘100’s of uses. Where you apply it is your business’

OhK! SOS Skin Toning Peacock Sheet Mask RRP £4
I love OhK! Products, I’ve used a variety over the past year and have always given great results.
The Korean skin care brand are vegan, do not test on animals and are always reasonably priced and funky

Mudmasky Hair Mask Scalp Treatment 3in1 Formula RRP £6.99
I’ve received this product at least 3 times over the past few years in beauty boxes. This treatment will leave your hair feeling nourished and clean with a mild fresh scent.
A decent sized tube for 2 or 3 applications (depending on your hair length), Cruelty free, paraben and sulphate free made with natural ingredients. It’s a winner all round.

SportFX Sport Stamina Long Lasting Waterproof (Black) RRP £7.99
I do not need another mascara, I have a few on the go, however I won’t pass this one, I’ll keep it handy for hot summer days when I can only bare to wear a whip of mascara and a lipbalm

Wildtree Skincare – Organic Body Scrub Melt RRP £3.99
Although this bar was well wrapped, I thought they had send a chocolate treat as I could smell this as soon as I opened the box. This bar is blended with Cacao and Shea Butter.
I loved using this bar, it gently exfoliated my skin, helps with circulation, whilst moisturizing at the same time. The scent was strong but not over powering.

Over £26.98 worth of products that are perfect for daily use, gifts, or a little extra care for only £5, I encourage you to snap this up next time the mystery boxes are released.

Roccabox March 2021 Tried and Tested

Good morning friends,

Late last week I received my March Roccabox ‘Birthday Edition’

The box arrived in its traditional pick packaging, I was expecting something a little more colourful, shimmery or celebratory as it was the birthday edition, but no matter, it was jam packed with goodies!

L’Occitane – Almond Milk Concentrate received 50ml RRP £12.50 (Full size 200ml RRP £42)
You know I love a mini…
I have a face and body cream on the go already, so have used this smoothing and firming cream on my hands. I can’t say that my skin has felt firmer after 4 days, but they have certainly been soft. This moisturizer is cruelty free, non greasy, and soaks in well.
I have a little eczema on my hand that is quite sensitive, but the cream was kind to my skin and didn’t leave any redness or itchiness.

Monuskin Professional Skincare – Illuminating Primer SPF15 Full sized £36
I do my best to remember to apply suncream daily, but like most, can often forget.
This SPF Primer is rather thick, but that’s a positive, one pump is enough for your whole face, and soaks in well. I would say £36 for a low SPF Primer is an insane amount to pay. My make up sat well for the day, however I wouldn’t say it’s worth the money as you could easily buy a similar product for half the price.

Anatomicals – Mint Hand Sanitizer & Mint Hand Cream RRP £5
Well it’s part of our day to day, so why not?
These slender tubes are perfect handbag or even pocket sized. They thankfully don’t smell like hand sanitizer, more so the dentist, which is quite a a nice scent in my opinion. Clean, sweet and fresh.

BeautyPro Hair Therapy Deep Conditioning Hair Mask RRP £5.95
This hair mask is to be ‘worn’, after hair is shampooed, rinsed and lightly patted. Twisting wet hair into a conditioning bag is alot more awkward than I expected. The bag stayed on my hair for a full 30 seconds, I retwisted, applied and secured with a hair tie.

After 20 minutes I rinsed my hair, and man, my locks feel Luscious!
The mask may be a little fiddly and heavily scented, but I’d definitely recommend this.

Marc Jacobs Beauty – Velvet Noir Mascara Deluxe sample size RRP £13.80 (Full size RRP £24)
This deluxe mini is a good size, with my favourite type of brush, big and fluffy. One coat divided and thickened my lashes well, with no smudging or flakiness through out the day.
A little on the pricey side bit definitely a decent mascara.

Bonus Product – ISOCLEAN RRP £1
I’ve run out of my make up remover, so this one was a nice treat. Not too much to say about this product, it did have a strong hair spray scent, but cleaned the brushes well, and thankfully didn’t leave a scent on them once rinsed.

Overall I loved this month’s box, practical but pampering with a little bit of everything.

What do you think of this month’s box, are there any products you’d like to try?

Saturday stroll, Carisbrook, The Tennyson Trail and Gatcombe

Good afternoon friends,

Yesterday morning/early afternoon, my fiance and I set off for a stroll

We didn’t anticipate such a long walk, but as the weather was so beautiful we decided to make the most of it.

We packed a lunch along with a flask of tea, wrapped up in layers, and set out for our trek. We walked from,

Carisbrook to the Tennyson trail to
Bowcomb down, towards Gatcombe, back through Carisbrook and into Newport.

Here’s just a few pictures from our journey

To walk for hours without a destination, to just chat, no distractions, getting exercise and taking in the glorious views, it was wonderful.

We ended up walking 13.6k, my legs definitely needed the stretch, and my chest the fresh air.

We passed less than a dozen people and a few dogs, spotted 2 robins, a sparrow, buzzards, a pheasant, sheep with their lambs, and a festival of birds singing in a tree.

The last few miles of the walk, the trees bowed over is along the tunnel path, I felt as though we were hobbits leaving The Shire.

There were dozens of exposed roots, with burrows, perfect for small creatures, as well as what I expect were rabbit or badger holes around them.

We were tempted to walk around Carisbrook castle before we heading home, though we could hear the families and dogs barking, and decided to take a different route as it looked a little too busy

Forever thankful for our Island, and cannot wait for Spring right around the corner

New Product Review – Garnier Ultimate Blends Shampoo Bars

Good afternoon friends,

In recent years, zero waste items have become more accessable and affordable.
The past couple of months I’ve tried my best to take a little extra time when ordering beauty and home items, that are made naturally, with less plastics, to prevent waste, that are vegan, animal cruelty free and palm oil free.

Last week I found Garnier had released a selection of Shampoo Bars.

These 60g bars are packaged in a cardboard box, and retail for £7.99, but are currently on sale in Boots and Superdrug for just £3.99 each with a free aluminium storage box (whilst stock lasts)

It may not be the most exciting item to buy with a Boots voucher, but it was worth it for the price.
There are 4 varieties depending on your hair type
I picked up 3 (out of the 4) bars, one of which I knew a friend would like to try.

Garnier Ultimate Blends Honey Treasures’
Honey and beeswax for damaged hair, to nourish, strengthen and give protection to breakage, with a a soft sweet scent

Garnier Ultimate Blends Ginger’
Ginger root extract and almond oil to Recover and revitalise weak and dull hair leaving it shiny and stronger.
A warming scent, but not over powering, almost a christmas candle fragrance.

Garnier Ultimate Blends Coconut’
Aloe Vera for Normal Hair, to leave your locks Hydrated and clean with a fresh light coconut scent

Garnier Ultimate Blends Delicate Oat Softening Shampoo Bar for Sensitive Scalp & Fragile Hair (The one I didn’t purchase)

The bars last up to 2 months each, are easy to grip, with a tear drop shape.
They are sustainable, Vegan and cruelty free and Silicone and paraben free, and 97% biodegradable formula

The free storage boxes were sold out, but I had another small tub to store it in.

I have used my Blends of Honey bar 3 times in the last week and absolutely love it.
I was unsure if it would work well with thick, long curly hair, and worried it would be left tangled, greasy or felt stripped, but instead my hair feels soft, smooth with a light fragrance, looks and feels clean.

If you haven’t already, I recommend your give them a go!

Roccabox, subscription box

Roccabox February 2021

Good evening friends,

Roccaboxs box is Galentine’s Day themed – A box filled with 5 items and a extra treat for a pamper session ready for Valentine’s day with a loved one, your girls or a relaxing one to yourself.

Project Lip Plump & Colour – Shade Play RRP £14

Firstly, I adore the colour and the idea of a soft Matt finish with a little plumping.
I’ve used the Soap and glory glosses for years, they give a slight tingle and give your lips a little plump… This however was different.
2 swipes, I puckered my lips together and must have licked my lips, as seconds later my lips tongue and throat were on fire.
Not a tingle, but burning hot. I wiped the balm off my lips with a flannel, and spent the next 30 minutes rinsing out my mouth and trying to cool my lips with a flannel.
Just to confirm I do not have any allergies, nor was the skin broken. My lips, mouth and throat were hot a painful for the rest of the evening.
I am extremely disappointed with the product, even more so that I checked the Roccabox Instagram, there are dozens of others customers who have commented the same about this product. I’ve messaged Roccabox 3 times, over the past 2 weeks asking if the product is faulty, what products have been used to give the sensation. I’ve finally recieved a reply, but only asking me to instead email the support team.
I have emailed the team and .awaiting a reply – I understand that not everyone has the same experience with this product which makes me this there could be a faulty batch.

Moving on!

Crabtree & Evelyn – Soft Touch Face Foam RRP £4
This face foam has a light and fresh floral scent, I’m looking forward to lathering this up and having a pamper

Farryn Amber – Floral Oud Perfume Oil Full size RRP £18
This roll on perfume oil is gorgeous! I love a mini to try out new scents,
Sweet almond, Vanilla, Cedarwood, Jasmine Frankincense, Ylang ylang, Sweet orange. Perfect for spring
with only a few strokes across your skin, the scent of sweet honey and orange is extremely fulfilling.

Nip+Fab – No Needle Fix Eye Sheet Mask RRP £6
I haven’t used this mask yet, but love the Nip+Fab products and heard rave reviews.

Fetimans Rose Lemonade Light 250ml RRP £1 (Extra Treat)
A random but lovely little extra, I’m looking forward to my weekend, a cold glass, sat chilling with a face mask on, reading my book.

Soaper Duper – Shea Butter Body Butter RRP.£3.99 for full size (Travel size recieved)
Thick, creamy and non sticky Shea butter is Cruelty free and vegan, also smells delightful

What do you think of this month’s box?

Birchbox, subscription box

Birchbox February 2021

Good afternoon friends,

This month we recieved another wonderful Birchbox, only a few months in and I’m extremely impressed with the products recieved.

This months 5 products came in a make up with the option to choose from the same bag in 2 colours, Blue or orange.
I opted for the bright blue – the bag is a decent size with a sturdy zip, plenty of room as a large make up bag, or wash bag for the gym, beach swimming pool or a weekend away.

Birchbox Accessories
Natural Green Jade Super Polished Gua Sha Full sized RRP £12
The first item I opened was a Facial massage tool to used over moisturizer, facial oil or cream
Depuff skin.
Similar to a jade roller, this Gua Sha can be smoothed over the skin to increasing blood flow for lymphatic drainage. Easy to clean and store in its own little pouch.
If this is one you’re not keen on, it would make a lovely gift.

Huygens Bois Rose Regenerating Face Cleanser 30ml received (RRP £22 full sized)
This face cleanser has a strong but not over powering lavender scent. The cleanser is gentle on your skin, and is Vegan and animal cruelty free.

Sensory Retreats Divine Eyes RRP £21
This warming mask can be used to unwind, or as a overnight black out mask. On the back of the mask are details of a free 85 minutes music session to accompany your relaxing evening, a nice little touch to get the most of the product.

MCoBeauty Tango Cheek & Lip Tint (Full size recieved £12)
although they are practical, I don’t often reach for a tint. The shade is orangy, not overly keen but it is easy to blend, I expect it’ll be nice to try in the summer once my skins a little sun kissed

Soaper Duper
Zesty Sicilian Lemon Body Wash
75ml received (RRP £9.99 full sized)
Cruelty free and vegan 95% Naturally derived body wash fills the room.
I’ve used the vanilla pod body wash in this brand and adore it. This is quite a thin consistency, but a little goes a long way

Once again a lovely box/bag from Birchbox.
No make up this time around, unless you found the cheek and lip tint, but as I’ve said before, at the moment, who needs it?

The weather is still all over the show and a little extra skin care is welcomed.

self care

Its not all sunshine and lemonade, and that’s okay.

Good afternoon friends,

I had the intention of posting this last night, instead I drank a bottle of wine and had a 5 hour long phonecall with my best friend, however I still wanted to post this to share with you all.

I am thankful that it’s Friday afternoon, what a week its been.

For anyone else that needs to hear it, its okay if you’re not okay.

I don’t mean to sound dramatic, nothing major has happened to upset or stress me out, but I am tired, overwhelmed and feel like I’m drowning in life.
I feel the guilt of not doing or achieving enough.

Don’t get me wrong, I have the most wonderful fiance, family and friends who I love dearly, I’m fortunate that I enjoy my work, and live on this beautiful island which I call home. 

I am extremely grateful for what I have, however at times I feel as though I’m not doing enough to appreciate it, and that I’m not living my life as I should. I don’t feel like I’m enough.

This week my loved ones have had to remind me,

– I can say that I’m stressed about work, but that doesnt mean that I’m ungrateful for my job

– I’m not in the mood to chat to friends on facetime, but that doesnt mean I don’t value them,

– I’m too tired to work out,that doesnt mean I’m not grateful for my health and my body.

Setting time aside daily, yes daily, is important for your well being. and no, before you question yourself, it is not selfish


15 years of depressions, self harming, and suicidal, if I feel a fraction of low, all the painful memories arise and it can seen me down the rabbit hole of thoughts.
I am thankful, beyond words. I never thought I would come out the other side. Feeling that way daily for years, I was certain that this would be my life for the time I was here, and it would be the cause of the end.

And if you too are still fighting that fight, remember, you are fighting, you are getting through it.

‘It doesn’t matter your speed, forward is forward’ – unknown

The past few days its been an emotional rollercoaster. It may be hormones, a chemical in balance, pandemic, the cold and dark winter weather, please remember it will come, and it will go (even if only for  while, you’ll get through it bit by bit)
Be kind to yourself.

  • Take time to breath
  • Get some fresh air

  • Stay hydrated

  • Take your vitamins

  • Do a 7 day yoga challenge

  • Work out

  • Pick a fruit, even if just one that you know you can happily eat every day (I recommend 5 here friend but we’re taking small steps)

  • Do something each day that fills you with joy and get lost in it. Even for just 30 minutes  – even if thts reading a magazine cover to cover, a few pages of a book, lay back and listen to a podcast, or have it on in the back ground whilst you do something productive, a few episodes of your favourite series, playing an instrument, know your own happiness and feed it

  • And if you need to cry, then cry. Let it out.


Recognise why you’re crying, or feeling unhappy or overwhelmed, and when you’re ready, wipe those tears and address it. Make a a plan, do I really need to mention making a list? (my happy place)

Healing takes time, and asking for help is a courageous step’ – Mariska Hargitay

Open yourself up to people and talk about how you’re feeling.
A gentle reminder that your loved ones, although want to help you, not all of them may be the best people to speak to. Pick and choose who you can freely open up to in your darkest times, some are better at listening that others.
Everyone responds differently, some nod and will listen, others will give advice, and occasionally a few will nod but don’t acknowledge what you’ve said, but instead will spin the conversation round on them and make it all about themselves.
 

That has nothing to do with you, you deserve to be heard.

Although difficult, step back and think about what you want in life.
What does your future look like?
How you want to spend your free time? Make what you can possible and set your goals in a achievable time frame.

You’re never too old to set another goal, or to dream a new dream – C S Lewis

This last year, has been full of ups and downs for all, some are absolutely thriving, and others are just surviving.
I know times are hard, but find what works for you to find peace in your day.

I’ve always been goal driven and tend to try to make the most of ever hour of the day, which can leave you exhausted and feeling as thought you’ve got target but you’re on to the next without stopping to appreciate your achievements.

Your achievement for the day might be to get up, brush your teeth, wash your face, get changed, and then,

  • Look after your children
  • Work your job
  • Keep your household clean and tidy
  • Do a work out and blog for a while


Whatever you do, recognise that
You might not work out daily, you may have found comfort in comfier clothes, you may not have blogged as often as you liked. You’ll get there, if you need time then take it, take a break but don’t quit


‘Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can’ Arthur Ashe

You’re not failing.
Take inspiration from others, but don’t compare yourself, it’s not a competition.

We all have different strengths and weaknesses. Different situations, jobs, income, time that we can control.
It may seem miniscule, but it’ll help, each morning think of one thing you’re looking forward to, and at the end of the day, one thing you’re thankful for.

You’ve got this.

If you are struggling, please reach out.
To friends, family or the Samaritans.
You can call (for free), email, wrote a letter or use the app

The samaritans



If you need to take the time to just breath, give the free Medito app a go


And finally if you want a podcast to fall into, that is open honest, and relatable, listen to ‘Open Mind with Frankie Bridge’, on Spotify and Apple


Know you are not alone, and take a moment to breath.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,

Isle of Wight

Totland Bay, Headon Warren Saturday Stroll

Good afternoon friends,

How is this weekend treating you so far?

Yesterday was glorious, almost Spring weather.
The sun was shining, I was warm and ready to stretch my legs. My fiance and I (warms my heart every time I say that), packed a picnic, a flask of coffee and drove out to Totland Bay.

Forgive me, I talk about the Island, (Isle of Wight), as if you know exactly where I mean – below is a lovely picture I found on Google of a map of the Island (Totland is the far left, under Yarmouth)

As we walked up hill, we passed a few dog walkers, and I could hear a group behind us.

I could feel my chest tighten at one point, we were walking up hill and chatting away, so my first thought was that I was feeling a bit unfit, we slowed down but I could still feel a bit if pain

The group were walking about 30 or so meters behind us, the paths were long and twisted, most of the time I couldn’t even see them, just hear them in the distance, then I realised my chest was tight because I was anxious.

I think where I only leave the house to do food shopping, to leave the house and be free to explore, to hear and see others around me without a mask, I guess subconsciously it made me uncomfortable.

It was a bizarre feeling, I was out in nature with my love, enjoying our exploring, and then reality hit with what the world’s gone through the past year. It happens, for anyone who’s felt the same, take a minute or 10, a deep breath, remember all the good that’s around you, and carry on.

I realise this is an over-share, but let’s be realistic, we’ve all done it and I couldn’t stop laughing …

The wave of anxiousness subsided, but then the realisation of how much I needed the loo hit.
I’m not going to lie to you, this happens.. and when nature calls, friends, sometimes you have to pick a spot, and pee behind a bush!
The views were glorious, but I was distracted by not only finding some bushes to hide behind so I couldn’t be seen, cursing myself for wearing tights, and preying some creature didn’t crawl up and bite my backside. How bloody awkward.

Anywho, that happened, my other half kept a look out and I wasn’t caught.

We made it to Headon Warren and took in the spectacular views, I haven’t visited here for years and forgot how beautiful the view was over the Needles.

We sat and had a little picnic on the beach which consisted of, Mixed cheese’s and meats on home made sour dough, chocolate chip cookies and cocktail sausages

Little collection of stones – I pick a few favourites and take them home to display in a glass jar – I do this every time we go to the beach

Two ladies to the right of us braved the calm waters for a swim, it looked freezing but they were laughing and had huge smiles on their faces for the time they were in the water.

It was lovely to just breath in the sea breeze, listen to the waves crash and relax.

We made our way back to the car by walking along the seafront, it had started to get alot busier, there’s always one or two who think they’re more important than others.

Even if social distancing wasn’t applicable, if you’re passing another party, move to one side, instead a group but 5 stood side by side strolling past others whilst they pressed themselves up against the wall to keep a bit of distance between them. The same walking up the cliff stairs, groups stopping and chatting mid step… Could you not?

We made our way up and back along the path smiling back at home owners sat in their gardens enjoying lunch with the radio playing.

Our looped walk of 3 and a bit miles was refreshing, I really need to get out more.
