A lovely summers morning....

Hello Loveys,
 
I thought I would do a post that I haven't done in a very long time, a blogs version of a vlog. Me and my little boy had a morning walk and explore in a lovely town near us, we explored the great green fields, finding bugs and beautiful flowers. We discovered a barn with lots of history, where the sun burst through the cross shaped windows, you could imagine a medieval banquet taking place, imagine the gowns and fine fabrics swishing through the barn.
 


 
I wore my lace dress from H&M and sandals from Primark, the weather was so beautiful considering it was 9 in the morning!




 


 
We walked along the canal and spotted some ducklings amongst the still but murky waters. We could smell bacon and burnt toast where people were making breakfast within the canal boats, I would love to have a little weekend break on a canal boat, it seems so tranquil and pretty.



 

 



 

 
This barn was amazing, I particularly loved the sun bursting through the little windows scattered around. I wasn't sure what this barn would have been used for but it would be amazing as a wedding setting.

 

 
I had such a lovely time, I enjoy early morning walks in the countryside, the silence is amazing, it helps me feel calm and takes you away from the madness that is life.

Review: Trusted Health Products AM and PM Moisturiser

Hello Loveys!
 
I got to admit I am struggling with writing regularly on my blog, I am in the process of buying a house and planning a wedding! Crazy times! But here is a little review I have managed to get written up for you lovely lot.
 
trusted health products, moisturiser, review, skincare, anti aging, no parabens, olive oil, american skincare, beautiful, avocado oil, healthy
I was lucky to get contacted by the Trusted Health Products company who sent me a personalised AM and PM moisturiser, a skin treatment. This treatment is for both men and women and can be personalised to Beautiful for women and The Man for men. It comes in a 0.5oz bottle with 360 drops per bottle according to Trusted Health Products. It states it has 3 steps,
 
"Apply" where you place 2-3 drops on each cheek 1-2 times a day gently spread over your entire face for the first few weeks which can also be used as a makeup remover.
 
"Detox" where is helps unclog pores, naturally removes toxins and detoxifies your skin from all what is thrown at our skin which will take up to 30 days to achieve.
 
"Thrive" where most people notice a difference, where it will take place of "anti-aging creams, firming creams, makeup removers and moisturiser" this is a huge statement don't you think?!
 
I have used both AM and PM for a month now and feel like my skin is brighter, with less blemishes. I did breakout like it stated it could do for the first couple of days, I was scared I would have more as my skin is combination and with an oil based product I was worried it would make my skin go into overdrive but it didn't.
 
trusted health products, moisturiser, review, skincare, anti aging, no parabens, olive oil, american skincare, beautiful, avocado oil, healthy
 
AM Moisturiser contains the following 100% pure botanical oils of almond, orange, lemon, avocado and olive.

PM Moisturiser contains the following 100% pure botanical oils of almond, lemon, evening primrose oil and apricot.
 
 
The scents remind me of a spa where you can smell pure oils that relax and rejuvenate. They contain no parabens, preservatives, petrochemicals, GMOs, fragrances, dyes, synthetic ingredients or additives. Wow now that's a good list bad guys that aren't included in these bottles of beauty. 
I find my skin is feeling better and looking better, clearer, and brighter and I look forward to keep using them to see further results.

For a limited time, the manufacturer is willing to offer my readers one FREE bottle. They said they would love to have our readers try out Beautiful A.M. Moisturizer (for women) or You’re the Man A.M. Moisturizer (for men) and agreed to send one bottle FREE if our readers would pay a minimal shipping and handling charge. This is a one-time only offer!  They also agreed to include 2 eye-opening reports – The Poisons You Put On Your Face Everyday and Why Your Skin Care Products Have Never Worked: The Truth Revealed .”  That’s a total value of over $40.00. Click here to get your FREE Bottle and FREE reports now!
 
Have you tried these?

Yellow Dreams.....OOTD

 Hello Loveys,
 
So I was invited to my fianc├ęs friends lovely wedding, I panicked as thought oh lordy I don't have an outfit! So off I popped and found this beauty in River Island, I struggled to find anything else in other highstreet stores which was really irritating as it is wedding season, but good ol River Island saved the day!
 
This dress retails at £45.00 which you can find here

River Island, Yellow, Dress, Bodycon, Wedding outfit, Pink, Asos, Shoes, fashion, OOTDRiver Island, Yellow, Dress, Bodycon, Wedding outfit, Pink, Asos, Shoes, fashion, OOTDRiver Island, Yellow, Dress, Bodycon, Wedding outfit, Pink, Asos, Shoes, fashion, OOTD
 
I teamed this yellow bodycon dress with bright pink pointed heels which have gold detail at the front. The dress was really comfortable with a pleather effect neckline. The dress isn't one to wear if you want to fade in the background as its quite bright but I love this shade yellow despite my olive green skin tone it complimented it well, a definite winner!

Positive Thinking.....how to be happy and move on #3

Hi Loveys!
 
So here is the third instalment to the positive thinking series. How did your hand activity go and have you made your positive box? Be great to know!
 
quote, life, positive thinking, confidence, self esteem

 
Todays activity is a focus on your week, sometimes we can forget the things that make us smile and focus on the negative things as they take over how we feel and looking around that can be hard. What I want you to is draw a timetable Monday-Monday, with two sections under each day, one representing morning and one representing the afternoon, then place this on your fridge or by your kettle basically in a place you go to daily so you can see this regularly. So I want you to write a positive on each morning and afternoon section of your week, so looking at the smaller things such as the sun was out which made me smile, I had a lovely cup of tea, I saw a great film, My child gave me a cuddle etc, so looking at the smaller things in life that make us smile on a daily basis.
 
quote, life, positive thinking, confidence, self esteem
 
This task is one that works really well, then at the end of your week you can look at how many positives occurred rather then the focus going on the negative. When you have completed this add it to your positives box.
 
 
 
Now I want you to start a positives jar, you can get any jar you like and think of something you would love to save for, it could be an item of clothing, a chocolate bar, getting your hair done or a beauty item you are lusting over write that on the jar. Now, everytime you get a compliment I want you to say thank you to the person without any hesitation, repeat the compliment in your head and praise yourself by putting £ in your jar, this can be £0.20 to £10 a go however much you want to put it, then at the end of a month see how much you have and spend it on something for you as a well done. Accepting compliments can be so difficult and people react in various ways when complimented, a classic is saying with a nervous laugh "Oh no not at all, I just threw this together" or "You should go to specsavers" instead of these type of reactions smile and say thank you then reward yourself because in the words of Loreal "You are worth it".
