Today I’m fortunate enough to team up with ADEXE to share with you a beautiful watch from their new range, as part of their Your Time is Now campaign. Before I get into nattering away about the watch itself, I wanted to discuss the theme of time and owning the time you have. Because not only is that a powerful message to send out but also one that got me thinking quite a bit and ended up with me reflecting on my year so far and contemplating whether I’ve taken ownership of the time I’ve had, utilized it and declared that my time is now. I’m not one to compliment myself too often (I’m far too awkward for that) but I came to the conclusion that the answer, is yes.
Watches can be a real statement piece of jewelry and fashion and I believe that everyone should own a really nice watch at least once in their life. I’ve been through my fair share; nothing expensive or fancy by certainly watches that highlighted my style at the time (which was Grunger chic – 16 year-old me was cool bro). My last watch was a brown leather strap with a pirates map in the face and although I bloody loved that watch, it’s safe to say I’ve come a long way since then. And don’t really partake in pirate fashion anymore.
Facial oils have always been a bit hit-and-miss with me. Possibly because I’ve never taken the time to learn how and when to use them properly and possibly because I’ve never found one that’s right for me. I’ve used plenty in the past that just made my face look greasy AF which wasn’t a good look even by my pretty low standards. I was always hesitant at putting facial oils on before make-up, worried that foundation and concealer wouldn’t sit properly and if I wasn’t wearing make-up, would everyone just think I was super sweaty? What’s the deal here?
For me, Summer is definitely a time to make sure I can feel as good as possible. It’s no secret that I actually hate Summer; I cant handle the heat, it makes me anxious and often leaves me feeling ill. I also don’t enjoy sneezing 400 times a day and being a general snotty mess from May till September. But alas, I have to endure it like everyone else but at least this time of year makes me want to drink more water, eat more fruit, cut out more meat and just generally consume more healthier products. So you know, you win some, you lose some.
I love trying new products and when those products are cruelty-free, natural and Vegan, that’s even better. You’ll know that I’m not Vegan myself but I am actively trying to cut down the meat I’m eating and I’m really interested in looking into dairy-alternatives soon too. But I always think that any small way to help the environment is good; and buying, promoting and sharing cruelty-free and Vegan products is a great way to do that. Which is why you’ve seen a fair few natural / Vegan product reviews on my blog before! I’m here with another one for you today and this one could possibly be my favourite yet. I was so chuffed with all of these products and I can’t wait to share them with you!
If you get an email asking if you’d like to review cupcakes, you’re going to say yes. So when Caketoppers * emailed me and asked if I’d like to try and review some of their cupcakes, I said yes. Obviously. I love food and I’m certainly not going to turn down an opportunity to test some – especially cakes! Caketoppers specialise is edible photo cake toppers, on cakes and cupcakes for a whole range of occasions, choosing from chocolate sponge, classic sponge of a mixture of both! I was sent one of each to try and here’s what I thought!
I think Spring is a great time to spruce things up. Whether that’s your blog layout, a new hair cut, a re-decorated bedroom or a new wardrobe, Spring is a great time to jump into things head first. New beginnings and all that jazz. I always feel super motivated and inspired as Spring hits (apart from the days that my hay fever is so bad that I can’t breathe or see), I want to do more, try new things, work harder – the works! And it’s a great feeling. Fashion is something I’ve never been overly confident with; I don’t tend to follow the crowd or follow any “trends” and I’m quite reserved when it comes to my choices. But even a gal like me needs some new items to spruce up their wardrobe every now and again don’t they?
