Blogmas – W7 Advent Calender

Good morning friends,

Today we’ll be looking at the W7 Advent Calender.

I didn’t realise W7 sold advent calenders, but after purchasing, I discovered they have for the last 4/5 years.

There have been mixed reviews, but here’s my thoughts on it.

The 24 day advent calender was available by dozens of sites, prices ranging between £12-£25, depending on where you purchase it.

I bought mine from Amazon for £12, with an additional £3 P&P, (which works out at around 62p a day) bargain!

The make up is pretty basic in looks and quality, but overall decent.

The Beauty Blast contains:

1 x Mini Big Lash Mascara (Black)
3 x Mega Matte Lip Liner (Red, Pink and Nude
3 x King Kohl Eyeliner (Black, Brown and Blue)
4 x Mini Glam Gloss (Glam Bam!, Super Star, So Hollywood and Too Hot!)
5 x Mini Mega Matte (Smudge, Happy, Hasta La Vista, First Class and Star)
1 x Mini Glowcomotion Highlighter
1 x Mini Honolulu Bronzer
1 x Mini Cheeky Flusher
1 x Mini Banana Dreams
1 x Mini Beam Me Up Illuminator (Volcano)
3 x Loose Glitter Pigment Pots (Super Silver, Gilded Gold and Pretty Pink)

Here’s a closer look at a few of the products.

Firstly,how freaking adorable are these miniature lipglosses?

Perfect size for a small clutch bag, purse, to keep in your drawer in the office,or in the car, when you need a quick bit of glam.

The top 4 glossed are shimmery, whilst the bottom 5 leave a strong but soft shade that lasts for hours.

Perfect trio of Lip liners, for any preference.

Black and brown liners will always be present in my make up stash, but this beautiful navy may give me the confidence to branch out a little and create a blue smokey eye.

You don’t often get a mascara in a advent calender, which in all honestly was one of the selling points.

The wand is thick, and gave me long defined lashes with just one coat.

Is the glitter multi purpose? For make up or nails? Honestly, who cares? It’s Christmas, and we all need a bit of glitter in our lives, now than ever!

Honalulu bronzer – I’ve seen this as a dupe for the Benefit Hoola Lite Bronzer. I didn’t believe it until I tried it, but it’s pretty spot on, and a fraction of the price!

Cheeky flusher – I think that might be a bit much for highlight or bronzer but what a stunning eye shadow.

Glowcomotion is a gorgeous all around soft gold for your cheeks or eyes.

This advent calender will kit you out for a full face of make up and multiple looks (keep an eye out for this at a later date)

I was also pleasently surprised that there were no fillers – not nail file, hair band, or outdated eyeshadow applicator in sight.

What did you think of the calender and would you buy it

Semolina Cake Recipe

Good evening friends,

This year, almost everyone has gone a little baking crazy, not to mention we’re half way through The Great British bake off… It’s hard not to bake up a storm each week.

Today I’m sharing one of my ultimate favourite desserts.

I’ve eaten and loved basbousa since I was a child, and no cake compares.

It’s sweet, simple and moreish.

Basbousa Recipe

Serves 15-20

Pre time – 20 minutes
Cooking time – 40 minutes

Ingredients

2½ cups coarse semolina

220 g(1 cup) caster sugar

75 g(½ cup) self-raising flour

200 thick yoghurt

200 unsalted butter, melted

1 tsp vanilla extract

25–30 blanched almonds

Syrup

330 g(1½ cups) sugar

250 ml(1 cup) water

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp rosewater

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 190°C. Mix the semolina, sugar, flour, yoghurt, melted butter and vanilla in a bowl.

If the mixture seems too thick, add a little milk, but it should still be fairly stiff.
Spread the mixture with your hands into a buttered 30 cm x 25 cm x 5 cm baking tray.
Cut it into diamond shapes, pressing hard.
Place an almond in the centre of each diamond.
Bake for 35–40 minutes or until golden brown.

Meanwhile, make the syrup. Place the sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
Simmer for 5 minutes without stirring. Stir in the lemon juice and rosewater and remove from the heat.
Leave to cool.
Pour the syrup over the cake while the cake is still hot. Cool to serve.

Let me know if you try this recipe and what you think of it.

Autumn/Fall Haul 2020

Good evening friends,

What a wet and windy, yet wonderful autumn night.

Autumn/Fall for me is all about Comfort, your home and clothes become a little cosier, embracing the dark nights and chill in the air, and having some much needed downtime.

Here’s a few of my autumn essentials.

Home

Beanies Coffee 50ml £1.99 each (Lidl)

Until last year I never understood the hype of ‘Pumpkin Spiced Lattes’ – and then I got hooked.

I’m not really one for flavoured coffees, but they give that extra warmth this time of year.
Whilst in my local Lidl, I spotted the Beanies Pumpkin Spice instant coffee.

Oh my! It’s been just over a week and I’ve finished a jar. I went back to grab another jar, and picked up Cinder toffee, Caramel popcorn, Nutty hazelnut, Irish cream

Candles £3 each – Gingerbread Cookie and winter Spice (B&M)

I’m all about candles, each season brings a different scent. This year I hunted high and low for spiced candles. Finally I found them in B&M, and how cute are they? And yes, due to the many unsuccessful trips trying to find them, I picked up 3 of each.

Fashion

Charity shop
George cream short tench coat (New with tags) £5
BM Collection heavy blush pink coat £5

I, like many, love blacks, browns and deep reds for this season, I decided to mix up it up and look out for a few softer shades, and hit the jackpot.

The cream trench coat is a must, simple and chic, but the pink coat, she’s my favourite. Pairing it with a pink handbag, I’d be giving off Umbridge vibes, but I’m okay with that!

Charity shop – Next Knitwear £2 New with tags

I love a dusty Rose pink, especially with black jeans or LBD

Lily Morgan £5 (everything five pounds.com)
A simple black cotton jumper with glitter trim jumper, jazzes up the one of the must haves for this season. This jumper is so warm and fuzzy, it’s become a new favourite

Old Navy £5 (everything 5 pounds.com)

I bought this long cream jumper about 3 sizes to big. It is huge and just hangs off me, it’s so soft and just the right thickness. Not really one to wear out as it is so baggy, but at home with some fluffy socks is just perfect.

Pep&Co £12
This Hound tooth dress is perfect for winter. Possibly even a comfy Christmas day look?

Pep&Co £6
And once I saw the dress, I just had to buy the skirt!

Beauty

Vaseline Intensive care Cocoa Radiant
Body lotion 400ml £3.99

I have dry and sensitive skin, with eczema which flairs up more in the cooler months. This lotion helps to sooth and moisturize my skin without leaving it stinging or feeling greasy.

Poundland Lipscrub ‘Mint to be’ £1

Nothing worse that chapped lips, especially when rocking a dark lip. Pounlands Lipscrub smells, and tastes great, and works just as well as names brands.

NYX Midnight Muse £3.99

I picked up this lipstick thinking it was black, but it is actually a deep navy. Not a shade I’ve worn before but definalty one I’ll be trying this season.

Maybelline Vivid matte Liquid £7.99 (TK Maxx)
20 matte shades for £7.99, that equals 0.39p each. Bargain! Plus all the shades are beautiful, the bright purples and orange may be a little tricky to pull off but I’ll do my best!

Keep an eye out for my vivid matte Lip challenge later this month

What autumn goodies have you purchased recently? And what does Autumn/fall mean to you?

I found a lump *UPDATE

Good aftenoon friends,

The results were delayed by another week, I received a call Tuesday explaining I no longer have to attend my appointment, instead I’ll have a call from the Dr on Thursday afternoon.

The Dr called yesterday and confirmed all is well, there is nothing to worry about or keep an eye on.

I am beyond relieved, I could have cried.
Thank you for all of your love and support, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it, especial when going through something so stressful and uncertain.

I urge you all, men and women, to check your body thoroughly and regularly.

Please don’t take anything to chance, think that you’re over reacting, or brush off something that feel alien to your body.

Shoebox Appeal 2020

Good evening friends,

I spent the morning wrapping and filling shoe boxes.
The Shoebox appeal pick up is in 3 weeks, and will be sent to children in need over the world.

The shoe box appeal was first introduced to me through my school, each child would pack a shoe box with our family.

Each year the shoe boxes would be sent to communities in need around the world.

Although the shoe box appeal still takes place in schools, as an adult I feel as though it is important that I still donate each year. I have my own money, and have friends with children, which I often buy toys for without even thinking about the cost.

We don’t hesitate when buying everyday items, it just happens, toys, make up, a new nail varnish,a take away coffee, it all adds up.

Yes I work hard for my money, but I recognise that I do occasionally waste money and could put it towards a better cause.

Just one shoe box per house hold could change a child’s life.
Text books, and stationary could assist a child to go to school and get an education.

Over the past couple of months I’ve bought items for the boxes here and there to already out the cost, and have bought in bulk online.

This year I’ve packed 12 boxes for 8 girls, and 4 boys.

Each box contains

2x lined exercise books

2x colouring books

Pens and pencils

Erasers and sharpener

Ruler

Stickers

Pencil case

Drawstring sports bag

Toothpaste

Toothbrush

Wash cloth

Bar of soap

Nail clippers

Mini sewing kit

Cutlery set

Tennis ball

Skipping rope

(For the boys) – 3x pull back toy car

(For the girls) – Pony doll, hair clips and headband

It may not seem like anything too exciting, but I’m hoping it will make a difference.

There is a suggested £5 donation, I donate money also, but not £5 per box.

There are multiple drop off points through out October and November, or alternatively if you don’t have time to buy the items, wrap and pack a box, you can buy a pre-filled box online that will be sent on your behalf.

Shoebox Appeal

Give what you can, and pay your love forward to others 💞

I found a lump

Good evening friends,

I’ve been away from wordpress for about a month now, its been stressful to say the least.

This blogs a little different today.
My intention is partly to share whats been going on, to bring awareness to others, and to share the process of getting checked out by your Dr, as I was unfamiliar what the steps were for each appointment, especially during covid.

As we all know, the worst thing you can do is Google any health problems. But I couldn’t help it. Although I had through out been given leaflets on what may happen at appointments, there wasn’t any real stories from people who had been through this.


Mid September I was checking my breasts and underarms, as I regually do, and felt a lump in my armpit. I had a good feel, lead on the bed, poked around and asked my boyfriend to check for me. He felt the same. Quite a deep hard lump, a bit bigger than a pea.


The next day I called and booked a drs appointment. I couldn’t be seen for 9 days, but pleased the ball had started rolling.


My colleague advised me to call and see if they had any cancelled appointments. They did, and I was able to be seen 3 days earlier. Doesn’t seem like alot but it took the weekend out of the equation.


25th September
Masked up and ready for my Drs appointment, I rang the bell and was asked to enter reception, gel my hands and wait to be called. We were asked previously not to show up early, as there was no where to wait around to be seen.

I was seen only a few minutes after my appointment time. The Dr thought it best to examine both under arms and breasts, and called a nurse in to assist as we couldn’t be in the room alone. Both the Dr and nurse where calming, friendly and chatty which was comforting.

The Dr could feel the lump and thought best to refer me to the breast clinic to have a mamogram or scan at the hospital, and blood tests within the next 2 weeks.

I tried my best to stay calm, I was thankful that he could only see my eyes well up with tears and not my trembling lip and tomato red face.A few days later I recieved a letter from the hospital that my appointment was the following week and that they’d decide on the day whether I’d have a mammogram/scan, and to allow up to 3 hours at the hospital.
That week I was up and down full of fixed emotions and terrifying thoughts running through my mind.

October 8th
The day of the appointment i worked up until lunch, best to be distracted, then my other half drove me to the hospital. I was told in the letter to bring someone with me for support,  but when we turned up, we were told rules had changed again because of Covid, and he was asked to wait in the car.
I checked in and was lead to the waiting room.
Only 5 people were allowed in the waiting room at a time, and once a patient had left the chairs and handles were wiped down and left to dry.
For once, covid was the last thing on my mind.
The chairs, doors and walls were all bright pink, it felt like a medical dolls house.

I was taken to see the Dr and nurse who asked me to lay down so that I could be examined. The Dr said he wasn’t worried about the hard lump in my armpit although he had found a second raised area lower down along my bra line. I didnt even realise, but of course, he knew what he is feeling for and what may feel alarming.

The Dr recommended I proceed with an ultrasound, and sent me to the other end of the hospital.
From then another Dr examined my underarm and did a ultrasound. She confirmed the lymphnode was twice the size she was happy with and that it was very deep.
I had the option to have biopsies taken there and then or the next day, so I had thought I’d just get it all over and done with.
The Dr took 3 biopsies, it wasn’t painful but was a scratching/uncomfortable feeling as the ultrasound was pressed firmly over the needle.
This took around 40 minutes, I was fine for the first 30, but the last 10 I broke down as was left too long to think about what was happening.

The Dr and nurse were wonderful, they were informative and friendly, and the lovely nurse Che, held my hand (gloved of course).

I was given a appointment for a weeks time and told to bring someone with me to recieve results.

I cried hard in the car to my boyfriend, terrified with what they had found and if I would die.



October 13th
I went to the drs to have my blood tests. I was told to call them in a weeks time for results. If there were any concern from the lab of my results, they would contact me first.
Sounds ridiculous but I didnt ask what they were looking for, I was assuming the worst, because in all honesty, there’s where my minds been every day.

Cancer has been at at the forefront of my mind for the past couple of years.

I’ve mentioned before, my dear friend Sarrah found a lump when she was 30 years old, the lump was cancerous and quickly spread from her under arm, breast, organs, then to her spine and brain. She passed away 2 years ago at just 32 years old.

The week between my biopsies and results I was a mess. And my brain was like a sieve. At work I was focused but as soon as I left to be with loved ones and could relax, my evenings became a blur. I’d keep forgetting things, repeating myself, becoming confused because I couldnt rememeber if I had said something out loud or in my head.October 15th
I worked the morning, luckily it was hectic ao my mind didn’t have much time to drift. Lunch time hit and I packed up ready to leave. My boyfriend and I drove to the hospital to get my biopsies results.
The waiting room was empty, and tunes from the 80s played in the back ground, of course I ripped all of them apart and read too deep into the lyrics thinking they were a sign of what to expect.
I was seen about 15 minutes after my appointment time, I was sweating.
We were lead to the dr who looked happy but confused. He explained they hadn’t found anything that was cause for concern in my biopsy, however, where the lymphnode was so deep, they had only scratched the surface and wanted to taken3 more biopsies to confirm nothing nasty was found.
I cannot tell you the relief I felt.Helpful tip – I was told by a dear friend that I should ask for my results in 2 days time when I have my hospital appointment as they’ll have the results there. 2 birds with 1 stone and all…
My bloods all came back fine, fit and healthy.Luckily, the Dr asked if I was available that afternoon, I would have to wait a little but they could take the biopsies the same afternoon.
I agreed and half an hour later I was back in the room.
It was decided that it be best for a senior Dr to take my biopsies where they were deep.
By chance the lovely nurse I saw the week before popped out to say hi, which was a comfort as my boyfriend wasn’t able to come in with me.
The Dr and nurse positioned me differently than before, slightly rolled onto my side, and took the 3 biopsies within 15 minutes.

This past month I have been petrified. Scared I’m going to die. That I won’t get married to my soul mate, will leave my loved ones, my family and friends. Wont be able to make anymore memories. Wont buy my first house or finally decide if my other half and I want children.
Do I plan my funeral, my clothes, do I now make a will?
I fell down the rabbit hole and fast.

My boyfriend, friends and family and work colleagues have all been extremely supporting and have let me vent and cry. I am thankful. I am like a roller coaster. I have been uo and down, hysterically crying, not able to focus, then bursts of energy, feeling motivated and strong then back to laying in bed eating a bowl of chicken nuggets crying. Tight chest. Will I see christmas?

Please, everyone, check your bodies, don’t brush it off and think it won’t happen to you.



Men and women please check moles, body for lumps and bumps and your breasts and underarms regually.
And for all you men, when you’re cleaning in the shower, have a good feel of down there too!


Lumps can commonly be harmless cysts, clogged pours due to a build up of bacteria, especially under your arms. Many woman may shave their under arms, where deoderant and irritate the skin causing lumps and bumps. Please never assume it is nothing. Always get anything alien to your body checked out.


1 in 2 people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.

The amount if people ove spoken to where this has happened to friends or family. Some enlarged nymlnodes and bumps are benign, others are cancer, but they have survived, and others sadly haven’t.

My intention isn’t to upset or scare anyone, but to raise awareness.

This Thursday I have another appointment to get my results at the hospital, please send me positive thoughts.
