Why it’s great to be curvy

Throughout all my teenage years I was having a war with my body, I hated it. I disliked every part of me. Going for a bra fitting was my idea of hell! But now at the age of 24 I couldn’t be happier with my body. To quote Joey “I’m curvy and I like it!”

I love having curves, I like having a womanly figure to fill out my bras and dresses. I like having curvy role models to look up to and admire. I feel sexy and beautiful! My body is always beach  ready !! I like the way my body looks in a shorts and dresses in the summer and always show it off. I really enjoy summer now.

I feel sexy when I wear camisoles as it really compliments my body shape and captures my mans attention and makes me feel like a goddess. I like how my curves make me confident and happy after years of hating them. I tend to celebrate by buying lots of Curvy kate from brastop com…. and why shouldn’t I ? I have the body for it after all, even though I know only I / my man will see my beautiful curvy kate sets, I feel empowered when I celebrate my beautiful curves …. xo

Cotswold Spa Day!

Tuesday 19th April I was lucky enough to have my first ever spa day thanks to my kind grandparents and it was amazing !

The Spa was at Four Pillars Waterpark Hotel, Cotswold (4*).Let me say how beautiful the hotel is, and the surrounding is perfect! The spa it’s self is also so pretty and clean, I fell in love straight away. The staff were also very kind and helpful.

I have to admit I was super nervous, I didn’t know what to expect and was worried I’d hate it. I was so wrong. Our first treatment was at 12 pm and was a Rasul Ritual which involved us covering our body in clay designed to exfoliate and soften the skin, then sitting in a steam room for 20(ish) minutes before showering it off. After the shower my skin really did feel baby soft !

Lunch was at 1pm and was delicious, I had soup, bread, olives, feta cheese, a Mediterranean inspired lunch.

2pm I had a manicure which I enjoyed, the manicurist was so friendly and very chatty which put me at ease. After this I went for a swim and enjoyed the Suna before going home.

I would so recommend this spa to everyone ! I loved it so much I’m going again in June ! The whole day felt very relaxed. My skin felt soft, my nails looked good!

Curvy Kate: Arizona.

Hello! I haven’t felt like doing a bra review in what feels like ages. This is due to no bra fitting me right.  I was wearing 32E/F, however my bra size has changed (about 2 weeks ago) to 30FF/G and I couldn’t be happier, my bras now fit right…!

One of the first ones I brought was Curvy Kate’s Arizona in size 30FF from amazon at £9.30 for the bra and £7 for the matching thong (size 10) what a bargin, how could I not ?!

Arizona is a slightly padded plunge bra. The material is super soft and the navy blue with the dots is so cute. The band is firm with 3 hooks.

The fit is perfect for my boobs, the band is firm which provides pleanty of uplift and omph! The cups are deep which seems to work well for me. I feel really confident in this bra.

Lord of Misrule Shower Cream by Lush.

I’m a shower person. I’m not really into having baths, although I do like Lushs sex bomb and cinders bath bomb. 

I’m always looking for a shower gel/cream that can help soften my dry skin. However this wasn’t the reason for me buying Lord of Misrule. I brought it because it’s bright green! My favourite colour. Also I’ve been really into the scent of black pepper.

This smells……incredible. it smells very earthy, spicy and herbaly but slightly sweet which balances it all out. I’m so addicted to this scent and I can’t explain why. It lingires on my skin for ages which is nice and as I can keep smelling my skin through out the day!

I didn’t expect it to make my skin so soft but it does. All of Lushs other shower gels/creams haven’t really made an impact on my skin. Very impressed. Yesterday I brought the big bottle in the picture even though I’m not running out… its a limited item so want to make sure I have Pleanty to last me.

This scent won’t be to everybody’s taste but if you like green shower creams that smells spicy, give it a try before it runs out!

Bad hair day.

You guessed it, here’s another Lush review. Over the last few (4+) months I’ve noticed my hair has been acting out with bad split ends!

When I saw Shine So Bright I knew I had to try it. It is a hair balm for spilt ends with some great ingredients. Extra virgin coconut oil, Shea Butter, Free Range Eggs, all these ingredients I know work well with my hair.

I have a broken camera, sorry!

I love using this! Every morning after brushing my hair I warm a bit of this balm in my hands and rub it into my ends and my bangs/fringe to keep my hair soft. It has a beautiful orange scent to it which is very uplifting. I was worried it would make my hair look greasy but luckily it doesn’t.

I can’t say it repairs split ends (it doesn’t claim to) but I do feel I’m doing my hair some good by giving it as much nutrients as possible. I notice after using this my spilt ends do look less noticeable and healthier, win win !

Thanks for reading. X

Lush skin care update. Winter.

I went into Lush a while back with a few skin complaints. My skin was breaking out bad and my skin tone was uneven and bright red. I explained that my normal routine was a face wash (bioré which I love!) And tea tree toner water. She said she was concerned that I was striping my oils away.

She recommend Ocean Salt which I was very against. I like a good scrub but felt it would be too hydrating for my oily skin. When I tried it I was amazed, my skin felt smooth, clean and also soft with out feeling oily! I love this scrub as it has good effects on my skin and smells like a cocktail without alcohol, amazing. I use this twice a week. Ocean Salt is £7.95.

She also recommend Eau Roma toner water to spray over my face when I want to. This toner has lavender and rose water which helps hydrate my skin without over doing it, and keeps skin tone even. A perfect winter saviour ! I normally use this after I’ve washed my face, toned with Tea Tree water (i refuse to give it up) and done my make up. I use it before I leave the house and go into the winter weather. At £4.50 for 100g I think it’s great value.

After loving Ocean Salt I felt it was time to become more adventurous with skin care. I was always intreagued by Ultrabland. I had never tried it as the ingredients seemed too much for my skin. It has honey, beeswax and almond oil (for full list go on their website). It’s so fun to use, massage it onto dry skin then wash off with a damp cloth. Ultrabland made my skin feel so clean and so soft (again without feeling oily or sticky). The honey is good for spots as it’s an antiseptic so my spots have gone done and look better. The only con is I don’t like the smell at all, but luckily it doesn’t stay. I felt so confident in myself after using it I even got my boss to feel how soft my face felt, she was amazed ! I feel ultrabland is perfect for my skins needs. You can also double cleanse with this, I sometimes use bioré after. This cost me £7.50 for 45g and think it will last me ages!

Longleat Festival of Lights 2015.

I adore winter, always have. Something about the winter months I find romantic, perhaps beacuse i met J 6 years ago during winter. Last year my Grandparents (In Laws) gave J and I both Longleat passes. We were thrilled. The first thing we did was attend the festival of Lights as a family.

The festival of Lights is a Chinese celebration so of course the whole theme is Chinese myths/Beliefs etc.

Today J and I decided to head to it alone.. yet again I was so happy with it!
