I'm struggling.

Skin Problems, Learning To Adapt And A Confession.

24 September 2013
Thought I'd do something a little different today and just write a really long, crappy, novel version of what's going on in a small part of my life, so if you like reading crap and want to see some pictures then this post is perfect for you, unless you don't like swearing.

DuoDERM - Hydrocolloid Dressing.

22 September 2013
In my last post I talked about Nexcare's range of hydrocolloid acne patches. Today I'm going to introduce you to a standard hydrocolloid dressing which is readily available in stores and show you a few uses for the product.

Nexcare - Acne Care Patch.

17 September 2013
We all get spots, for some, it's so much worse than others but the bottom line is no one likes them and everyone wants them to go away as quickly as they pop up. Today I want to give my opinion on a new (to me at least) way of dealing with them.

Saturday Sample.

14 September 2013
It's Saturday and time for another sample review!

Mirenesse is a pretty popular brand, personally I have been both blown away and so horribly dissapointed with their products which is why I will happily take the oportunity to sample their products.


Libra - Hotties Heat Patch.

11 September 2013
Period pain, if you've ever had it, sever or mild, you know how uncomfortable and even debilitating it can be. I have had many days spent in bed with a hot water bottle and even more on my feet, at work, doped up on codeine based painkillers and still struggling to stand upright. My preferred treatment for mild cramps is heat, when it's severe I take pain killers but if I'm able, I will still carry around a hot water bottle, it seems to do something that pain killers can't, maybe it's just a soothing thing that I have associated with feeling better but it's always the first thing I go for when the Satan spawn cramps creep up.

Getting To Know Me Tag.

9 September 2013
The wonderful Lady S over at ladysapphireblog has so kindly tagged me in the 'Getting to know me' tag and I'll so happily oblige because I want my readers to get to know me too, so without further rambling lets get in to it!

Lady S asks...

What's your favourite way to style your hair?
I always wear my hair down, I have image issues with my ears (they stick out and not evenly, one more than the other! Idiot ears), I tend to go for straight or if i have time up my sleeve I love me some curls!

What's the one movie you could re-watch over and over again?
This is a tough one because I love to re-watch movies all the time, if I had to choose one it would probably be Step Brothers, never fails to make me laugh out loud.

Do you have any pets? I wanna hear all about them!
Yes, many pets! I have a cat, her name is Little, she's a tortoiseshell/white mix. She's demanding, likes to come in and out all night long and will meow at the door for hours until you do as she tells you.
I also have 2 Rainbow Lorikeets, Max and Jessie (we assume Max is a boy and Jessie is a girl but to be sure they have to be DNA sexed and we don't have the heart to pluck feathers to find out). Max has been with us for almost a year and Jessie is still a baby, we've not even had her for 2 weeks. I believe it was love at first sight for these two, Max won't let anyone near her when we allow them to be together and he runs around all puffed up and throws his toys around to show off. Jessie is just lovely compared to Max who loves to bite and terrorise people, while we are still hand training Jessie it's so nice to know that you won't leave the encounter with holes in your skin. Max is a big talker, his current favourite phrases are 'hello', 'give me a cuddle', 'stop it', 'want some food?' and 'give me a kiss' followed by a kissing noise but that's not the limit of his vocabulary.
Finally I have Drew, a chocolate Labrador, he's HUGE! Currently in the hospital after having a seriously unfortunate accident which threatened his life, he's making a good recovery but not out of the woods yet. Silly boy likes to jump and we believe he caught his boy bit on a cast iron chair outside and has done some very serious damage. He will survive it, but may lose some/all of his..willy (for want of a better word).
Oh and I should add that the cat and birds get along fantastically.

What's on your nails right now? Nothing.. What polish is due to be applied next?
They look so horrendously disgusting right now. I applied a Sally Hanson polish about a week ago and with all the stress of the dog and working more hours to pay for his care I have neglected them. The polish started to chip and lift so I would pick at it when I was tense and some of my nails broke because I've been working outdoors with my hands a lot... Anyway, a picture tells a thousand word and since I'm trying to be open here I think you just need to see the state I've allowed them to become.


I'll be doing my nails... at some stage lol, I'll be going for Rimmel Brit Manicure in English Rose because the longevity is fantastic and I won't have to worry about them looking so shabby.

What's your favourite thing about blogging?
Blogging is my escape from the daily grind, people who are around me on a regular basis have seen how important blogging is to me and in turn have given me peace and quite while I'm doing it, I cherish the space that I get when I'm blogging and it helps me to really open up about how I feel about products, companies and the industry. Not only do I get to forget about the drama of life but I also get to play with and write about beauty products, what isn't there to love!?!

Since it is almost midnight and I'd really like to get this up before bed I'm not going to tag anyone specifically but if you are reading this and you are a blogger please consider yourself tagged, even if you've done it before! If you aren't a blogger but you're in a sharing mood, feel free to answer my questions down in the comments!

What I'd like to know..
Are you in love? Tell me the story of how you met.
What is the first thing you notice about new people you meet?
What is your favourite smell?
What is your favourite place in the whole wide world? (Apart from home, because we all know that's where the heart really is)
Do you have any special talents?

Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy - Total Nourishing Care S&C.

5 September 2013
So anyone who follows beauty trends, reads beauty blogs or frequents on beauty sites will most likely have read something about the Clear Scalp & Hair range. They offered samples for a 7 day challenge and since I'm on a spending ban and keen to try new hair products I applied for the samples. They arrived weeks later, long enough for me to forget about it.


Fuli Eyelash Clip.

3 September 2013
I apply fake lashes a lot, both to myself and clients. I don't find it really difficult applying on other people but applying them on myself is another story.
The story goes like this.. I decide to try out a new set of lashes I purchased, application goes great, they look awesome and I vow to wear them more often. Next time I try to apply them I either glue my eyes closed or get it on my lid so much that I glue them open. I vow to never wear them again and a few weeks later I repeat the cycle.
