Introducing Helga! 

Last Sunday we went on a little trip to Derby to pick up this bundle of fluff. 


This is Helga! 

Helga is four months old and is a crazy ball of energy (as most kittens are!) she is our third cat as we already have: 

Fayce – Male 


Squaff – Male 


At first the other two cats were unsure of her as she obviously smelt different and they knew she was a stranger, however we’ve had no major cat arguments which is always a good sign! Overall it has taken just under a week for them all to get on together, now they play and chase each other like she’s always been apart of the family. 

(See, she’s crazy!) 




All of our cats out rescued one way or another, I can’t stress how important it is to me that you don’t go out and spend stupid money on buying a kitten when so many of them need loving homes! 
Her are a few places you can start looking if you are thinking about adopting a kitty of your own.

July Favourites. 

It’s that time again where I show my monthly favourites, July seems to have flown by, not that I’m complaining as Autumn will be slowly creeping in and that’s my all time favourite season. 


This shampoo is my ultimate favourite it leaves your hair feeling so lightweight and soft, it has a amazing fragrance and doesn’t over lather. Since using this shampoo almost over a year ago my hair feels stronger and healthier. You can find this shampoo in Home Bargains and B&M for £1! It can also be bought on Amazon. 


I’ve always loved Original Source shower gel all of them smell amazing and this one is no exception. If it’s coconut I’m buying it! The great thing about Original Source is that it’s vegan too! I honestly don’t know by now why all cosmetics are not vegan. It leaves your skin soft and refreshed and it’s a great boost for your morning shower. Right now in Tesco all Original Source shower gels are £1! 

L’Oréal skin perfection is designed to help skin imperfections such as large pores or uneven skin, I have been using this for less than a month and I am already noticing a big improvement to my skin. My pores are smaller and my face has a more every skin tone with less red patches, I’m really impressed and it’s definitely going to be something I keep buying. It’s around £6-£8 depending on tee store.


Mitchum roll on is one of the best deodorants I’ve ever used the scent isn’t overwhelming it’s floral and delicate and it doesn’t leave white marks on clothes. It doesn’t need to be reapplied thought the day as it last for 24 hours. Mitchum had a whole range of deodorants from roll ons to sprays Prices for this Deodorant range from £2-4. 

Thanks for reading I hop you enjoyed my July favourites. 

Batiste 2in1 review. 

Batiste has always been my go to dry shampoo. Don’t get me wrong I’ve tried others but they just don’t work for me. 

Having Red hair it’s really hard to find a dry shampoo that doesn’t leave behind that nasty white residue and leave me looking like I have grey hair, no matter how many times I try and brush it though. 

When I saw that TRND had a campaign for trialling the new Batiste 2in1 dry shampoo and conditioner, I jumped at the chance to apply. I made it into the trial team and received my free Batiste 2in1 to try, one for me and one to give to a friend. I received the cocoa & cashmere and gave the vanilla and passionflower one away. 


On first impression the bottle has a beautiful design and is slightly different to the original dry shampoos. The fragrance is rich and exotic with a hint of chocolate. It smells luxurious and like it should cost a lot more than it does. 


Because of its invisible spray and the fact it feels less like talcum powder it’s less absorbent than the original shampoos but a light spray all over your hair, still does a great job at giving your hair some of its life back. Just don’t get carried away and stand there spraying a tonne of it onto your roots because I find they will end up greasier than when you started, which is the exact opposite of what you’d expect from a dry shampoo. However according to Batiste we’ve all been using dry shampoo wrong anyway! 
Batiste advise you to spray mid-length of your hair and comb/brush though from root to tip. Who knew?! 


The conditioner in it reacts differently with your hair than you’d expect, the conditioner which claims to last for 18 hours doesn’t dry out your hair like normal dry shampoo does. It provides a more subtle bouncy texture, which is great for if your hair just needs a little encouragement to behave! (We’ve all been there!) 

Overall I’d say this is a good product for working alongside your daily hair routine to give your hair a extra boost but I won’t be replacing my normal Batiste dry shampoo with it, it doesn’t have the same appeal, and for days where you want to just spray and go stick to the original! Why fix what isn’t broken? 

Let me know if you’ve tried Batiste 2in1 for yourself, what do you think? 
Thanks for reading! 

I’m 26! 

It was my birthday yesterday! I’m now the grand age of 26! Haha. Thought I’d just do a little post showing you what some lovely people bought for me.

Since we’ve had the new kitchen I have a wine rack that has been constantly empty, so I asked for wine to fill it. However I wasn’t expecting quite this much wine! But hey, I’m not complaining I am a bit of a wino after all! 

Sticking with the theme of being a wino I also got this mug.


Some new wine glasses, as mine all seem to get broken, hence why I also have plastic ones! (No I don’t get so drunk I just drop wine glasses lmao, we have cats.) 


I also got these badges from Disturbia, and this Restyle necklace. 


This bath light which you can have in the bath with you to create a more relaxing atmosphere, how cool is that?! 


My lovely fiancé Tom got me my Killstar bag which I LOVE. I haven’t used it yet though as the only place I’ve really been since I’ve had it is work. 


Tom and his family have a ongoing joke about calling me Wookie/Sasquatch/Chewy etc. So I also got this Wookie cookie jar which is amazing, I’ve been wanting it for a while and I’m so happy I’ve finally got it. 


And finally I got this cat wall hanging, cow eraser set


some beautiful flowers, chocolates and money from various people. 


Thank you to everyone that spoilt me and bought me my cards and presents. You’re all awesome and know me so well!

Update! 

So, sorry for the lack of blog posts lately but everything that could go wrong, has. 

It started off with our surround sound system breaking, then the kettle broke, then the shower head started spewing water everywhere and then the washing machine broke and flooded my new kitchen. 

They say it happens in threes so I think we’ve had our fair share of shit come our way, so universe you can stop now, we got the picture! 

However on the up-side it’s my birthday on Tuesday and Tom has already bought me a Killstar bag which I cannot wait to get my hands on! 

As I’m writing this post I’m currently waiting for my new washing machine to be delivered and I’m rather excited. Yes I’m getting excited over boring adult stuff again. Ha. 

I will hopefully have another new post tomorrow or Saturday to get things up and running again. 
Thanks for reading!

May favourites – Adulting edition. 

So this month I thought I’d mix it up a little and do a general monthly favourites rather than focusing solely on beauty. 

In my previous blog post I spoke about my kitchen being refitted so most of the things I’ve bought this month have been kitchen related. So without further ado let the adulting favourites begin! 

Firstly I’d like to show you all this beast! 


This is my new health grill. It’s made by Salter and it’s so much better than any other health grill I’ve ever used! It heats up in seconds has a easy to use temperature control and opens up all the way, so you can fit even more yummy-ness on there. Most of all it’s soo easy to clean, with previous grills they tend to leave a burnt residue behind, which is a absolute nightmare to get off, then you end up scrubbing and making it worse for next time. With this grill there is no such problem. Simply wait for it to cool and wipe it with a damp sponge and some kitchen towel and it’s clean! 



I got mine from B&M for the bargain price of £10!! Just £10 freakin’ pounds!! 

Next up is my beautiful Vax steam mop. You know you’re adulting hard when stuff like this excites you. 


Not only does it clean hard floors but it also steams your carpets to get out any nasty stains. It’s easy to use and it’s slim so storage is easy. I got mine from B&M for £29.99. B&M are banging out the bargains right now! 

Talking about bargains this beautiful lamp was £16 reduced from £47 in B&Q. 



Our old lamp in the lounge decided one morning to give me a electric shock so that had to go! While looking for a steam mop I stumbled into the B&Q sale and found this beauty. It has three plastic double globe lights and has a chrome effect stand, the lights are soft yet provide enough light to read by. 

Another kitchen favourite this month are these cute baskets we found in Boyes (£1.99 each)



They are great for serving snacks, bread or chips in. Making more room on your plate. Simply line them with some paper towels or grease proof paper, it adds a little more fun to meal times and I just love how cute they are, in fact I might have to go back and buy some more. 

Last but not least I decided to include one beauty item which is Radox feel free body wash the scent is matcha green tea and coconut water.


 It does have a very strong fragrance however it does not last the 12 hours it claims to. But non the less it’s leaves your skin very soft and the smell does last longer than most body washes. I got this from Tesco for £1.50
Hope you all enjoyed reading!
