Straightening Out The Competition

When I told the lovely boyfriend that brand new Lee Stafford hair straighteners were on their way to me for this review, he said, and I quote: “What?!

Brighter Eyes with Optrex

Not long ago, my eyes needed their yearly check-up with the optician. I wasn’t surprised that my prescription had changed and it was a good excuse to get brand new purple frames too! I also had a contact lens trial which I failed dismally at. It doesn’t help that, even though I can cry at […]

My normal facial moisturiser is their lavender and tea tree but I already know what I’ll be replacing […]

Keeping Health In Mind

If you see my #fattytofitty updates on Twitter and Facebook you’ll know I’m working hard on my physical health. But, what about upstairs in the mental department? With a history of bouts of clinical depression and my recent chronic migraines, it’s no wonder I still suffer with brain fog!  There’s also the ongoing battle I have with […]
