My Big News + Ways To Relax

Affiliate links used help me to keep my blog running at no cost to my reader.

So when this hits Facebook it’s a bit of a sneak preview to my family as some don’t know I’m getting married! I know it’s daft right but the invites haven’t gone out yet as it’s a project in progress. Then again if I can get the invites I’m looking at from Etsy then I’ll show you them once they have been sent out. Now the date of the “event” is gonna be on Halloween I know what your thinking cheesy, odd & mental but that’s us in a nutshell. Anyone that knows us gets that it makes perfect nonsense!

Let The (as good an excuse as any for a) Relaxing Day Begin

So on with the only wedding related bit of this but you can replace it with your favourite fashion or beauty bible i.e Elle or Allure magazine for me. Today however it’s a new genera for me & most definitely the only bridal magazine I’ll be reading up to October.

Rock n Roll Bride

Rocknrollbride - issue 1 - magazine

Written by the very talented Kat Williams, the anything that’s considered alternative style wedding blogger & now Editor of her own magazine. My only sadness is it’s bi-monthly and somewhere in my head I thought it was fortnightly, ahhh! I will just have to read and re-read. Spend my days going through older posts on the her blog getting lot’s of ideas. RocknRollBride is the greatest guide for bride & grooms who are looking to do things with a little more uniqueness. The magazine has lots of real wedding with ways to take inspiration from them, Kat does an agony aunt piece which is useful if you have a question for her & diy tutorials to spruce things up. And Kat was right when she said when you get your first bridal magazine you start reading & devour the entire thing in one sitting. It’s a great way to relax.

Face Masks

Time To Relax - Superdrug Sheet Mask

Now you can just pick your favourite one or if this is a less often thing the sachet ones are good too. I like the Montagne Jeunusse (can’t pronouns them either) ones, more the peels than the clay type as they’re good for blemish prone skin. The one I’ve used is a new one for me it’s a sheet mask & purse friendly. These are the New Superdrug Facial Sheet Masks & they are £1.29 each, I’ll tell you more when I’ve tried all three of them out.

YouTube + Blogs

So it’s already my addiction but hey let’s make it yours too. Need a new beauty routine or something more specific for your skin care woes then this is the place to go. I wouldn’t go as far to say take it with a pinch of salt but do remember everyone has their own opinion just like blogging & sometimes they’re different. If I need a skin care guru then it’s Caroline Hirons here on her blog (formerly know as Beauty Mouth) & Youtube. For makeup there’s a fair few but the faves are Miss Budget Beauty( (UK), Tati (USA), Sharon Farrell (Irish in Australia) & LetzMakeup (Ireland) so depending on what brands you can get hold of one of those will suit.

Bath Time

If your like me then baths aren’t fun without bubbles, it’s a necessity I can’t do without. Weather it’s Badedas which creates epic amounts of foam or just your favourite Radox scent it’s a sure-fire way to make you stop. If you risk your mobile to reply to a text in the bath then you already have problems my friend, im afraid even I can’t help you with that one. If you like a but of luxury then as always I suggest Philosophy 3 in one, you can use it as bath foam, shower gel & even shampoo. At the moment I have 3 in stock due to sales & Birthday pressies, the scent Cinnamon Buns is my all time favorite, vanilla birthday cake a soft cake scent & Raspberry Sorbet has a lovely fresh vibe to it. If you’re not a foam person you can always try bath oils, I’ve always wanted to try the Aromatheraphy Associates out but they’re a little expensive for me. Another treat are the lush bath bombs or a little more adult version the bath melts & bubble bars. My faves are You’ve Been Mangoed, The Comforter & Mmmelting Marshmallow Moments all are heavenly scented.
