Skin care review!

Earlier today, I picked up some "T-Zone effective nature nose pore strips" (Phew, what a mouthful!) I remember getting these a few years ago and thinking they were good. However, I got slightly addicted to them and started to use them every other day! DO NOT do this!! Seriously, my nose got so incredibly sore and I started to get bruises across the side of my nose! This time, I'm trying them again with a new frame of mind and I won't be a stupid teenager, paranoid about my skin!

Each box has 6 nose strips in, they're fairly big and sit across your whole nose and slightly onto your cheeks. You leave them on for about 10 minutes and will feel it start to stiffen across your nose, which is when you take it off - don't leave it much longer or it'll hurt so much when you try to get it off! 

I could not believe how good these were, I forgot how effective they are - it sounds gross but they really do pull all the stuff out of your pores and leaves your skin looking a lot fresher. I recommend you use these after using a facial scrub to get the full effect!


  • Do as they say!
  • Cheap
  • Easy to use
  • Skin looks cleaner and healthier


  • Packet is difficult to get into, especially because you're meant to wet your face, making it a very hard task!
  • Only 6 in a box

I got these from my local Tesco for £3! You can get these online from Amazon, or in stores like Boots, Superdrug or Savers.

Feeling low

Do you ever feel like the world's against you? 
Do you feel as if everything you do is always wrong?
As if nothing you do is ever good enough;
you'll never be successful,
you'll never make it.

Today, I do.

My first review!

I went through a phase of looooving candles, and of course Yankee Candle have some of the best scents!

One of my favourites is 'Fluffy Towels.' I light it on an evening, either when I get home from work after a stressful day or just before my bath. It's a very relaxing scent and smells so clean and fresh. It's not as strong as I had hoped it would be, but then again - it doesn't need to me. Just a slight smell is perfect and puts me in a totally different mood.

I picked my candle up from Amazon for about £15 delivered - bargain!

Large jar, one wick candle - burn time 110-150 hrs!


  • Smells AMAZING
  • Relaxing scent, very unwinding
  • Affordable


  • Due to the one wick in the middle of the candle, it burns more in the middle than around the sides, making it awkward to light after a few uses
  • Scent could be stronger

You can purchase Yankee Candles at Clinton Card shops, Amazon or the official Yankee Candle website

I've wanted to start blogging for over a year now - and I've finally sat down and started one (I wonder how long this will last!) I've never had a strict idea as to what I'd blog about, so expect this to be filled with a lot of random bits and bobs! Whether it be beauty related, something that's happened in my day, something related to my music or something I feel I need to share with the world - it'll be on here!

So welcome, I hope you enjoy a look into my World!
