Gin Explorer

Gin Explorer

The perfect gift for anyone that loves Gin!

Gin Explorer

With Father's day coming up next month it is worth checking out Gin Explorer as it is only £24.99 for a month :)

In the box you receive various different gins along with a mixer and some other goodies :) There is enough for 8 measures of Gin!

As well as purchasing a one off box you can buy a subscription and I am sure any Gin lover would appreciate this as a gift.

Cocktail time

I love these cocktail mixers, I previously reviewed some here and I thought they were fab. 

The two I have just tried are elderflower colins and raspberry mojito.

They are so simple to use as I have mentioned before. You simple add ice and your chosen mixer (alcoholic or non alcoholic) and off you go!

I mixed the elderflower colins with lemonade for a refreshing Sunday afternoon drink whilst relaxing in the sun. 

Unfortunately I never got a picture of the mojito one but I think that has now become my favourite when mixed with soda water :)

If you haven't tried these I would recommend you do as it is honestly so easy to make a great tasting drink using these!

MagicMinerals bronzer

The last few weeks I have been testing out a new bronzer by Jerome Alexander. You can purchase this as a kit, complete with the bronzer, an eyeshadow brush, kabuki brush and lip gloss.

MagicMinerals bronzer

The bronzer contains 4 different shades so you can use these to create your own custom shade. You can even use the shades as eyeshadows or on your lips with the clear gloss :)

You can see I used this on my face and my lips and the results are pretty good! For £14.99 you can't go wrong! I love finding bargains like this from

Why do I blog?

This is just a quick post about why I blog. I started my blog as a hobby and I enjoy testing products and sharing my thoughts with you. It is something I can do a couple of hours in the week or the weekend and something I enjoy.

I have a full time job (not beauty or blogging related), I also have a house to keep clean and tidy and a husband to feed! Not everyone that blogs does it full time or wants to. To me it is just a hobby and something I enjoy. I don't do it to make money, or because I want to be a famous blogger, I do it in my spare time as something I have fun doing.

As soon as you mention to anyone that you have a blog they automatically think you either earn loads of money or get loads of free stuff but that really isn't the case.

Everyone has a different view on blogging/bloggers but at the end of the day if you do it as a hobby then you should write about things you enjoy and you should enjoy doing it!

My new favourite body scrub

I am currently addicted to using the Glamour grit scrub by a brand called Urban Tan. This product is ideally used before you fake tan as you need to ex-foliate elbows/knees etc but even if you don't fake tan it is a great product!

Glamour grit

The scrub smells great and is quite gentle on your skin. I often find scrubs are too harsh and leave my skin feeling sore but this one was great as it felt like it got rid of all the dead skin but it wasn't too harsh!
