I'M TRAVELLING AMERICA

Follow my blog with Bloglovin 

Hey everyone! Hope you're all doing great. This week I wanted to share some exciting news with you all... Harry and I will be travelling to and around America for three weeks this summer. 3 WEEKS BABY. 3 WEEKS. *Monica reference*


It's been my dream to go to America, from the touristy places to the food, it's all amazing. Harry and I have been planning this holiday for years and years, and finally, we are going. It's nice having someone who is exactly like you because we both love pretty much the same thing so, for both of us, this holiday is perfect. I am a little nervous as I have never travelled before but I am soooooooooooo excited. 

Here is what we will be doing and where we'll be going:


LDN ↠ NYC

We will be flying from London to New York.
New York is the place that I am looking forward to going to the most.  This is the place of Friends & Sex and The City. HOW EXCITING.
I don't know if you can tell, but I am a tiny bit excited. There is so much I want to do from seeing The Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and the restaurants (probably the most exciting of it all.)



NYC ↠ New Jersey & Philadelphia

As I am in New York, I have got to visit New Jersey, as I am a huge fan of Jersey Shore (And YES! I am so glad it's back on TV).
As it's so close, we will be going to Philadephia too. Another show I love is It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and also I want to find the best Philly cheese steak sandwich.




NYC ↠ Las Vegas ↠ San Francisco ↠ Los Angeles 

From New York, we will then be flying to Las Vegas, and our hotel has a theme park inside... I will be  like a right big kid.
Then we will be hiring a car (I am petrified of driving there!!) driving to San Francisco and Los Angeles. 



I cannot wait to blog more about this from the hotels to the food I will be eating, so watch this space!!!

Please do let me know if you have been to any of these places, do let me know of anything good to do and the restaurants.

Youtube channels I am currently loving

I love a good watch on Youtube. I was never really into it until Harry started watching it and now I am obsessed. You can watch Youtube videos for hours and end up watching the most random video there is. Here is my list of who I am currently loving.


First We Feast

I am not a huge beauty vlogger watcher, I love food, and this channel is brilliant. Sean does many types of various videos from 'Sean in the Wild' to 'Food Grails', but my absolute fav is 'Hot Ones'. It is a brilliant idea. Sean interviews celebrities with hot questions and even hotter wings, each sauce they try gets hotter and hotter. Terry Crews has to be my favourites one to watch, he struggles quite a lot and it's even funnier after seeing Charlize Theron take it like a pro.



LA Beast 

Channel name : skippy62able


This guy is crazy. Thanks to Harry, this has become a regular viewing in our house, and I love it! I don't think its everyone's cup of tea but if you want to see a man eat a cactus, eating chicken in a can or drinking a 20-year-old Crystal Pepsi this is the perfect channel for you. He is one of a kind I'll tell you that.



This Morning

Random but I love this programme so much and working full time I never get to watch this. Having this on Youtube is perfect because they show full clips you just want to see as if you watch this on catch up you have to endure the endless amounts of adverts.  There are so many 'interesting' people on there at times and who doesn't love Phil, Holly, Rylan and Alison... Oh and not forgetting Gino!


Brogan Tate

Brogan has to be my favourite vlogger, she is so down to earth and makes my Monday's. I've watched her for awhile now and still is my absolute fav. I love that she doesn't try too hard, she is one of the main reasons that I started my blog as I love how much of hard worker she is, and who doesn't love a good half hour vlog?! You should definitely subscribe to her.



Who are you currently loving?

6 struggles of shopping online

Follow my blog with Bloglovin 

Hands up who loves online shopping??

I love it though it's never as simple as it seems, most of the time it can go wrong. Personally, I prefer going to the shops and trying on the clothes, but when you work full time and don't live near any retailers, what do you expect?!

Throughout my times of shopping online there have been more bad times than good but I always still come crawling back. I wouldn't say I am an addict but the thought of a package coming to your door, trying on the clothes and wearing it a few times is the best feeling ever.

So, let's get into it...

SALE!... with everything you want without your size
You find the perfect going out top that was originally £20.99 to now being £8. Bargain. You click on your size and shock, it says 'Out of stock'. It's so gutting especially when you fall in love with it already.

The model looks absolutely amazing whilst you look like a sack of potatoes
You will always imagine yourself looking hot as the model does. It's the worst feeling when you get all excited, and it's nothing like you had imagined at all. I guess then it means more shopping though...

Big boobs problem
Now I'm not saying I'm Katie Price here, but I do have a bit of a boobage going on, so when I buy certain clothes, they're just swinging out like some merry-go-round.

You've got your clothes but are you willing to pay £3.99 for delivery?!
Your clothes are ready in the bag, the price may be a little steep but you know you'll look shit hot in it, and then the DUN-DUN-DUNNN... the delivery charge. I mean, I was willing to pay £87 for the clothes but not now that it's £90.99. Nah, thanks.

Delivery is in 3-5 days
So you're telling me after 5+ hours of online shopping that I have to wait 3-5 working days for the clothes?? 

Do you really need it???
Yes you chuffin' do! There is no questioning about it. Treat Yo Self.


Happy Easter and enjoy shopping for clothes or whatever else that takes your fancy.

EASY EGG MUFFINS

NOTE: The pictures may not be great and the food may not look impeccable but they tasted amazing.

I love cooking simple food not only it doesn't break the bank, but it's easy to make and a quick clean up afterwards. Pinterest has been my go-to app at the moment and with my healthy eating starting soon (hopefully) I need this type of food in my life.

They are simplistic yet tasty. You can either have these for breakfast, as a snack or for lunch. 

I first made these with just tomatoes and spinach however you can add whatever you want to it. If you're a meat lover, then bacon would be delicious or a cheese fan? Divine.

Here is how I made them:


The spinach may have been a bit too much, but we all know how small spinach goes once cooked. They also may look slightly overdone, but I prefer them dead dead crispy.

Why I still love hot water bottles

We're in March ready for Spring, and it is freezing. Usually, I love the cold and the cosiness that comes along with it, but I am so ready for summer, and this weather is not helping me get my summer body too. I need the sun and blue skies right now, but unfortunately, we don't seem to be getting this anytime soon.


Due to what happened to my foot I no longer use hot water bottles anymore as I never want to come close to anything like that again, luckily my foot is looking so much better now. As an alternative, I use a microwavable hot water bottle with thanks to the Hot Water Bottle Shop. They are a game changer, and it's ideal for anyone.

With the weather taking its turn I have noticed the office at work being colder, and a few people are using hot water bottles so I wanted to ensure people on how to be safe with a hot water bottle and the benefits that come along with it. We all know how to use one but, it is vital you do it the right way as you will end up like me with a burnt foot. The Hot Water Bottle Shop has provided a step by step guide on how to fill a bottle safely along with a video on their website.


Step 1
Check that there are no obvious signs of damage. Cracks and tears can be very dangerous when pouring hot water in.
Step 2
Once you are happy that the hot water bottle is safe to use, unscrew the stopper and pour out any water left in inside.
Step 3
Fill with boiling water that has been been allowed to cool down to a safe temperature. Do not use boiling water as this can damage the seams of the bottle and also adds to the risk of burns. It is also important not to use hot tap water as it may contain impurities which can degrade the bottle. These impurities are removed during the boiling process.
Step 4
Slowly squeeze the remaining air out of the hot water bottle so that the water level rises to just below the top.
Step 5
Now screw back on the stopper making sure it's tight.
Step 6
Finally use a towel or dish cloth to dry the hot water bottle and the stopper.
Step 7
Your hot water bottle is now ready to use! To be extra safe wrap the hot water bottle in a towel during use.

When you have a secure hot water bottle it can also be beneficial in many ways, for me, it calms my anxiety and for when I am on my period. Even when it's in the middle of summer, I need a bottle on my belly just to help the pain as I hate taking paracetamols. A hot water bottle can be a remedy for stress and sleeping difficulties. You can see below is how you can use one for your belly.

If you are experiencing stomach aches or cramps (including those associated with digestion), then lie down for 15-20 minutes with the hot water bottle or microwave body warmer, perhaps a microwave bottle, gently resting above your stomach. Re-heat the product if necessary. We recommend trying this lying on your back on a sofa or bed. It is also possible to sit down normally and prop the product against your stomach. 
Similarly to stomach aches or cramps, pains experienced during pregnancy and periods can be relieved using a hot water bottle or microwave body warmer. Simply rest the heat product on your stomach, groin or back depending on where the pain is. Do not use too much heat if possible, and if you choose to use a hot water bottle remember to wrap it in a towel.

Do you use hot water bottles for other reasons?

5 Shows I am loving on TV

Follow my blog with Bloglovin 

I love nothing more than just having a relaxing evening/weekend and watching TV. There is nothing better than putting your feet up and getting fixated on a show. These are all on TV right now whether that it is live on TV or on demand... it's perfect right now to binge especially with the Beast from the East stopping us from going out.


The Job Interview - Channel 4
I enjoyed watching this when it was last on TV and thrilled to have it back on. It's interesting watching this as a viewer because we can learn of what we should and shouldn't say/do. The concept is so simple yet intriguing.

Keeping up with the Kardashians - Hayu
The Kardashian's are my fav girls ever. I have adored this show from the start where we had Bruce Jenner and them living in a normalish house. There is non-stop drama, and after soooo many seasons, there is still even more drama. I love each of their personalities, and that's what makes the show so unique. It is amazing though how much has happened from a real-life reality show. There is never a dull moment with these girls. Love them.

Inside no.9 - BBC Two
I have no shame in that I saw all series 1-3 in two days. Series 4 has recently finished on BBC Two, but the previous series is currently on Netflix, Iplayer and Amazon Prime. This is about a series of different events that happens in a house, hotel or building that is at no.9. Each episode is very different and stars many well-known actors/actresses. It is very well-written by Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton.

Crazy Ex Girlfriend - Netflix
This show is cray. I love it. I am not a big fan of musicals, but I was hooked instantly. each song they sing is crazily funny along with the music videos and though I have a boyfriend, watching this makes me think I am a little crazy too, but who isn't?! 'The Sexy Getting Ready' song is phenomenal and makes getting ready even better when this is played in the background.

Ant and Dec Saturday Night Takeaway - ITV
Last Saturday I decided to watch this after many years of stopping (no idea why), and I am so glad they're back. Who doesn't love Ant and Dec?! I was obsessed with them back in the day, I always watched SM:TV on a Saturday morning, so watching them just reminds me of the good days. They're hilarious, lovable and a perfect pair.

Do you enjoy these shows too? What else have you been loving on TV right now?

My Everyday Makeup Products

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I looove makeup. I try not putting it on all the time, but when you're having a bad day or just want to wear makeup, it can instantly make you feel so much better. I didn't wear makeup properly until I was 17, and now that I am 24, I am still learning new ways on how to do certain things. I would love to just put makeup on for fun, but then I remember that if I use it all up, I would have to buy more, and that's not fun for my bank balance.

It's so much fun doing makeup, and it doesn't feel that it's a chore at all. The only downside is taking my makeup off, it takes sooo much time and effort (yes, I know I sound lazy). My skin does feel a lot fresher when it is off, and nobody likes waking up to makeup anyway - EW!


Here is what I use:

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation Vanille

It has taken me awhile to find a good foundation and finally, this one works so well. This foundation stays on all day and doesn't give a patchy look. Perfect.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer Fair 1

Back in the day, when I worked at Superdrug, I was regularly told that this was better than most concealers. I thought I would try this out... 5 years later, I am still obsessed. I am amazed how affordable yet effective this is. I have about 4 of these as these are always sold out, so it's always best to stock up a few.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara 01 Very Black 

Again, I have struggled with finding a good mascara, my eyelashes just either don't do anything or look like a spider has started growing out of my eye. However, after seeing how perfect Zoella eyelashes are, I was amazed to see that she uses a high street brand. And it works amazingly. I am intrigued to try the new Benefit mascara though.

Brow zings eyebrow shaping Kit 

I love this product. I have a scar on my eyebrow, and this is the only product that covers it up. You can see how I do my eyebrows here in another blog post.

Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

I sometimes use this, I bought this yonks ago, but this does help my makeup look a lot better and gives it a matte finishing look.

Collection Sheer Loose Powder 2

Collection is such a fantastic brand as it's incredibly affordable. It is £2.99 in Superdrug, and this just gives it an overall natural look.


Hope you enjoyed this post and let me know if you use any of these too?
