The song that speaks a thousand words

Hey everyone I wanted to share this song with you all…It speaks directly from my heart β™₯…If you ever read my blog this one’s for you
Hold Me While You Wait
I’m waiting up, saving all my precious time
Losing light, I’m missing my same old us
Before we learned our truth too late
Resigned to fate, fading away

So tell me, can you turn around?
I need someone to tear me down
Oh tell me, can you turn around?
Put it away
Hold me while you wait
I wish that I was good enough (Hold me while you wait)
If only I could wake you up (Hold me while you wait)
My love, my love, my love, my love
Won’t you stay a while? (Hold me while you wait)
Tell me more, tell me something I don’t know
Could we come close to having it all?
If you’re gonna waste my time
Let’s waste it right
And hold me while you wait
I wish that I was good enough (Hold me while you wait)
If only I could wake you up (Hold me while you wait)
My love, my love, my love, my love
Won’t you stay a while? (Hold me while you wait)
I wish you cared a little more (Hold me while you wait)
I wish you’d told me this before (Hold me while you wait)
My love, my love, my love, my love
Won’t you stay a while? (Hold me while you wait)This is you, this is me, this is all we need

Is it true? My faith is shaken, but I still believe
This is you, this is me, this is all we need
So won’t you stay a while?
And hold me while you wait
I wish that I was good enough (Hold me while you wait)
If only I could wake you up (Hold me while you wait)
My love, my love, my love, my love
Won’t you stay a while? (Hold me while you wait)
I wish you cared a little more (Hold me while you wait)
I wish you’d told me this before (Hold me while you wait)
My love, my love, my love, my love
Won’t you stay a while? (Hold me while you wait)
Stay a while (Hold me while you wait)
Stay a while (Hold me while you wait)
My love, my love, my love
Won’t you stay a while?hold me while you wait song link YouTube

Anew Platinum skincare program πŸ§–‍♀️

Evening all hope your well 😘

As promised I would review avons anew Platinum skincare program for you and that’s what I’ve done..

So I’ve hit my 30’s and I hate the thought of getting old but hey we all have to.

I’ve been looking at anti ageing products for while now silly as that may sound but I just have this real fear of getting old.

This is a market that makes millions in the beauty industry no women wants to get old right?

Well I have used avon products for a few years on and off so I thought ide give there anti ageing products ago.

There was three programs that you could choose from me being me and going full on stacie mode I had to go for the top and most importantly which one had the best benefits for my skin.

I haven’t purchased the full size products just incase it doesn’t agree with my skin so I saw this little travel sized box retailing at Β£10 so I thought why not give it a try…

Here is what’s in the box πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

You get – -1 x 15ml of day cream, 1 x 15ml of night creme, 1 x 15ml of eye and lip cream, 1 x 10ml of youth maximising serum & a rounded tip applicator.

The program states you will get visibility firmer stronger and resilience skin in just 2 weeks.

Here are my steps on how I follow the skincare program.

🌞Day routine 🌞

⭐Step one cleanse and tone your face using your everyday cleanser and toner.

⭐Step two make sure face is completely dry never scrub your face dry always pat your face dry.

⭐Step three apply the youth maximising serum you only need a small amount make sure you let it soak in your face probably before applying the day face cream.

⭐Step four apply face cream avoid putting it around your eyes and lips let that also soak into your skin again small amount goes along way I suggest a pea sized amount only.

⭐Step five apply eye cream to under your eyes using your rounded tip applicator and work into your skin gently..

⭐Step six wipe applicator with wet wipe and apply to your lip again only using a small amount always wipe excess product off the applicator so it’s ready for use next time.

Allow all products to fully be absorbed into your skin before make up application the day skincare routine takes around 10 minutes to follow.

Even with my busy schedule I can manage to follow it.

πŸŒ™ Night time program πŸŒ™

⭐Step one remove all make up from the day using make up wipe.

⭐Step two use the night cream only but again only a pea sized amount this product really does go a long way.

⭐Step three use the eye and lip creme using the applicator repeat the same process from the morning use small amount of product only.

The night time routine takes 5 minutes max

I always do it before I go to bed at night.

So what are my thoughts on the product so far well it doesn’t leave my skin oily which is a good thing.

when applying my make up after the day routine It leaves a nice base to put my foundation on so its a πŸ‘ there.

I have noticed my lines on my forehead aren’t as visible and also the eye cream is working wonders under my eyes.

And my lips feel a lot smoother and more fuller.

I’ve had no dry skin patches and I’ve noticed my skin complexion is a lot better.

I do feel If i purchased full sized anew Platinum products I would find them affordable and well worth the money from what I’ve seen and felt from my skin using the travel sized products I would definitely recommend them.

Avon can be purchased online or through a local representative in your area.

Love to you all 😁

Taking life for granted πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘§

Hi everyone doing abit of late night blogging i haven’t blogged for a few days sorry for that been a hetic week..

So summer has finally shown up fingers crossed 🀞

It’s one of my favourite seasons along side autumn something about the sun that makes you feel a bit better.

I’ve got to say I’ve had a hell of a week I must seem like I’m always having a bad time in life but honestly it’s just beacuse I’m always so busy don’t get five minutes to myself.

So I decided to take my girls to the beach it’s literally ten minutes drive away from my home I love the beach always have something about the waves and peace that comes with it.

It’s a place you can go relax and think it’s almost like time stands still for a while for me it’s heaven no signal on my phone no interruptions just clearing my mind and spending time with my girls.

Sometimes when life is so busy and hetic we forget what we have around us and that we need peace every now and again.

Honstly if I don’t get peace every now and again I become someone I don’t recognise and the weight of life drags me down.

Life can sometimes seem like your in a hamster in a wheel you keep going round and round but never getting anywhere fast eventually you get tired of that constant going round and around you need to somehow break the cycle.

It can be done but you really have to want to change or to make changes in life.

Me I take for granted how far I’ve come over the past 18 months what I’ve put up with and. What I’ve had to deal with.

You loose track of what’s around you and why your there in the first place.

My biggest drive are my girls πŸ‘­ I’m always wanting the best for them and I do what I can to protect them.

The next few months will determine how the next few years will go and even though its a big dream to chase I’m determined to do what I need to do.

Don’t take life for granted if you want to make changes make them if you love someone tell them if you have regrets fix them.

But most of all don’t take things for granted I know it’s easy to forget sometimes but honestly take time out and you will think more clearly.

I wanted to share some pictures with you all from today..

Thank you so much for reading.

Love to you all.

You get what you give!!! KARMA πŸ”ƒ

Hey everyone

Tonight I wanted to do a little blog about karma and how I absolutely stand by the universe for giving people what they deserve.

Before I start this isnt a bitter rant of mine it’s the complete truth and it’s just what I believe in.

So anyone reading this who knows me to then start questioning yourself if it’s about you ide say guilty conscience πŸ‘

So karma where do I start I believe if you do something bad to someone in anyway shape or form the universe will reward you with a taste of your own medicine.

It’s not always necessary to get your own back on someone who’s done wrong on you karma always plays its part it maynot always be straight away but will Come when they least expect it.

When your angry and hurt by someone’s actions you let them win I know its easier said than done but honestly the universe is watching and waiting for the exact time to send karma their way.

So what is karma well its when something that you have done, comes back to you
For example, if you do something good, something good will happen to you back. if you do something bad, something bad will happen to you.

Karma can be dangerous sometimes.

That’s just the way it is I’ve been constantly in cycle for eight years now and I’ve really had enough, I’ve tried and gave everything I had and then some but sometimes you just can’t help some people.

I’m so done with being angry and after everything I still wish them well personally i know karma will come their way so I won’t need to tell the world anything unless I proceed with my autobiography and then sorry it will all come to the surface.

So to anyone out there who feels the need to get your own back don’t karma is watching and she will do the dirty work for you infact I’m pretty sure she enjoys it.

Just sit back get on with life and always have a bag of popcorn to watch the marvel of her work unfold.

And then you can say…. πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

Peace out…

Drawing the line πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ

Happy friday all ❀️

I hope you have had a good week well first moan of the week what’s happening with summer who messed with the seasons the fact that I’ve got soaked down to my knickers around 4 times this week already due to monsoon rainfall is an absolute liberty.

Second moan I now have gluten allergy πŸ™„ so my diet has had to completely change otherwise it will seriously effect my health cheers when they made me they certainly wasn’t being kind.

Not a massive deal but having to adapt change again when there isn’t enough room in your head to think about new life changes,and you haven’t even come to terms with old ones yet is pretty much pants.

But I’m strong πŸ˜‰

So anyway I was having this conversation with a friend of mine this week and topic was where do you draw the line and move on from people.

Thing is I’ve been through this situation but in different scenarios a few times in my life.

And I know I sometimes I talk like I’m older than noah and the ark but if I’m honest I’m just a normal human being that’s been through some tough times like most people but I’m more open to share my experiences not so that people feel sorry for me but for people to know if they are going through similar situations that they are not alone.

So back to the conversation I was asked what would I do if I couldn’t walk away but needed to.

Heart over head is an ideal choice for Me as I’m impulsive.

But for most people it can be scary I personally would love to live in a world where everything goes smooth and there is never any issues that I have to deal with but unfortunately that’s not how life is.

Effort has to come from both sides within a relationship or a friendship if you start questioning your worth then it’s time to do so some serious thinking about how you deal with the next faze of your connection.

It can be hard to walk away but it’s even harder being stuck in a situation that you see no way out of or if there is anyway of making that person feel the same.

Truth is you can’t make them feel that way they have to feel it for themselves.

You can give everything to one person your love your respect your care and most importantly your time and its time you never get back so you need to tread carefully.

You can give everything you have to someone and it still not be good enough.

But what you need to realise you are good enough if they can’t see that then it’s there problem not yours.

Eventually you heal and you move on and learn from the situation just takes time.

Time is the key sure you will have good and bad days.

Maybe it will hurt when you see they have moved on but remember if they wanted you in there life you would be apart of it no questions asked.

But always remember you are always good enough and if your stuck in limbo in a connection like this you have two options wait to see if they come round to your way of feeling and thinking.

Or move on with life and focus on moving forward not moving back.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend everyone…

Peace out

To tone or not to tone that’s the question πŸŒΉπŸ§–‍♀️

Hey everyone it’s Sunday hope your having a great weekend.

I’ve been inundated with messages regarding two beauty products I purchased from my local aldi store asking what I really thought of the cheaper version of the branded products pixi glow tonic and pixi face oils.

A few months back I ordered a trial sized product of both the pixi glow tonic and face oil I have to say I’ve read very good reviews of the whole pixi range as it combats many issues regarding skin problems they have a whole range full of products for different skin types.

So willingly I tried both products you see I have combination skin and trying to tackle different combinations with only few products is a pain I end up with a shelf full of products.

So I did a bit of research and then ordered two trial sized products from pixi to see how my skin was after use I have to say I was quite surprised and impressed by the two products but only thing that put me off was the price.

The rose toner from pixi retails from around Β£18.99 (gbp) and the rose face oil by pixi retails Β£19.99 (gbp) I know it doesn’t seem that pricey but I hate spending that much money on products.

I do love a bargain and saving money if I can…

So I was doing my local food shop in aldi and I saw these two products on the shelf they looked similar to the pixi products but they are made by a company called lacura retailing at Β£3.99 (gbp) each

Sad as it sounds I was excited to use them to see if they where similar to the pixi products.

I wasn’t disappointed I found the two products very similar the only thing I would say is that the lacura product smells stronger than the pixi one I’m not overly keen on rose as a Scent but it’s not that over powering that I wouldn’t be able to use it.

The toner left my skin feeling clean smooth and fresh it’s also tackling the combination skin issues I have.

The face oil isn’t too oily as daft as that sounds it’s not heavy on your skin I’ve found it leaves me with nice glow I apply before my foundation but you only need a small amount a little goes a long way.

I also apply after I’ve taken all my make up off and used the rose toner before bed.

I would definitely recommend these two alternative products and with a massive saving of Β£31 I will definitely be purchasing again.

You can find these products at your local aldi store or online

Dreams come true if you want them enough.

Heya all

I Hope you have all had a great week.

I’ve been thinking a lot about my life and what ide like to achieve and over the past few weeks I’ve really thought about what I want My girls are not always going to be little not that I’m wishing the years away but I also need to think about me and what will make me happy.

So I need to share one of my goals with you and I’ve set it to Be completed by the end of 2020

Have any of you seen the film the holiday?

Well for the ones who haven’t it’s a love story where two women have their heartbroken by men the one falls in love with a man who barely looks at her as anything else than his assistant and the other a successful women who’s a movie music producer is taken for a bit of a ride by a man who let’s his egotistical personality thrive of her success.

Well after these two ladies left heartbroken and alone over Christmas and thanks giving. Decided to do a house swap the successful American lady comes to the UK in a stunning little countryside cottage and the other women flys off L. A to a swanky pad with a pool but whilst she’s on the plane ready for take off she gets a texted off this gentleman asking for her advice she looks and decides not to respond at that moment you feel her pain when you know she wants to respond but out of self dignity she can’t.

Hang in there I’m getting to my point of me mentioning this to you all.

After some alone time and reflecting on thier lives they know that changes need to be made if it wasn’t for their heartache they would of never got the courage to have flew half way across the globe.

During this time they started to find themselves again and learning new things going new places meeting new people and falling in love at the most unexpected time.

Without forcing anything all happened naturally and fate had taken over but if they hadn’t of taken that chance and if they hadn’t of been brave they would of never kick-started their new path.

Here where it comes to me I get extremely influenced by movies and music call me Peter pan I can honestly say I don’t live in a dream world or an ideal one I’m somewhat in between if I can make it happen I will.

So I’ve had this dream for a while now like one of my bucket list items.

To be completely at ease with myself ide love to rent a cottage in Ireland for a few weeks somewhere disconnected from every day life to sit with a book by a log fire with a hot cup of tea with the noise of the waves crashing amongst the shore nothing else no stress no Internet just completely shut down and let my mind be clear.

Ide possibly hitchhike a lift into a town and hopefully survive then go sit in a traditional Irish pub and listen to some proper Irish music with a famous pint of Guinness.

But my favourite thing would be to go around Christmas time.

When people’s spirits are higher than normal.

Sounds pretty boring to some people but we aren’t made to all have the same dreams.

So I Vow to follow at least one of my goals a year this one has been at the top of my list for a while it’s about time I followed it.

To completely detach from day to day life would be great and to kick start my path to finding myself again would be absolutely amazing.

I’m not worried about doing anything alone I’ve always been strong willed.

So I never worry to much about travelling what will be will be you never experience anything from staying inside the box.

Lots of love

Houston, we have a problem πŸš€

Heya all ❀️

Before I start ide just like to say this isnt a blog about space sorry to get you all excited..

I just absolutely love this saying not because I’m such a nerd but because it can mean so many things as Tom hanks said it in apollo 13 when in spaceflight on the discovery of the explosion that had crippled their spacecraft in such way it stayed with movie lovers everywhere and if is often used in so many ways to say a mistake has been made but it might be unfixable.

Why I use this expression is that upon grueling impact on your own vessel during life you have to nurture the vessel to keep the soul In place and to be able to withstand what life’s throws at us if you don’t look after the vessel the soul finally breaks down.

I don’t mean in general health but more about mental wellbeing.

May seem a little morbid for some people to think this way but it’s OK to not be OK.

After a few days of extreme highs I’ve hit a low and I’ve got to keep reminding myself that I’m strong and I can get through anything.

Slightest things kick me over the edge when I’m like this everything seems a massive deal when it really isn’t.

You see when life is so busy and we don’t take time out for ourselves we slowly loose who we are and slip into a continuous cycle of being so busy we put all our own needs aside.

I can’t actually remember the last time I sat in silence.

Started reading a book or even painting my nails as silly as that sounds.

I literally don’t know how to switch off and my phone is always. Constantly going.

Then I’m flooded with messages asking if I’m OK don’t get me wrong it’s nice that people care.

But I’m best left alone I will come round on my own terms.

It all gets a bit much sometimes so I end up going…

Just so I can completely shut down and refocus if I don’t I’m like a ticking time bomb.

So it essential that we completely switch off and take time our for ourselves.

So here’s me trying to detox myself and by using himalayan salt bath crystals gold face mask and lip mask.

May I just add these peel of masks are more painful that waxing and for love of god don’t put it anywhere near your eyebrows you will end up looking like a fish….

Have a fabulous day or evening where ever you are.

Remember self care is important for your mental health ❀️❀️

Is it summer yet πŸ€”

Hey all happy Saturday.

I did say I was going to do a review of bondi sands gradual everyday tanning milk so here it is…

So it’s payday and I’m in my local superdrug store in town and I’ve been moaning all week on how I looked very gothic for the approaching summer months.

Everyone says hey life’s better with a tan so I thought yes why not but I really wanted to avoid that nasty beef crisps smell and looking like a crusty tiger roll from tesco in the wearing off stage.

If I’m honest I’ve been researching that skinny tan but I’ve seen mixed reviews so I was kind of put off that due to the numerous bad reviews that’s it’s not worth the money.

I’ve tried most tans and I very rarely get a spray tan unless it’s a special occasion.

Just needed something that was easy and quick drying and that doesn’t smell totally discusting.

Saw this on the shelf and thought it’s a pretty big bottle for Β£7.99

Normal retail price is Β£11.99.

I couldn’t wait to use it that’s the sadness attached to me in life and your in your 30’s get excited about getting a new kettle or a microwave you know post middle age issues.

So yesterday evening was the first time I’ve used it and honestly I’m quite impressed.

Not used a gradual tan for a long time it’s always been a full on tan no going back till it fades..

Back in the day dove gradual tan was the go to product when my grandparents used to curse at me don’t use that self tan rubbish it will give you skin cancer no grandad the only thing that will happen here is ide be looking like a cheesy wotsit.

Old people πŸ™„ god rest their soul..

So me being old school thought why not just try a more advanced product and see if a gradual tan will be easier to maintain within my busy lifestyle.

Well I have to say a little bit goes a long way you don’t need hand fulls of the stuff to cover your body drying time is around 10 mins you need to make sure you properly dry your skin before applying if being used after a shower or bath.

You must allow the lotion to dry before dressing but I’ve not seen any product rub off on my clothes.

Only problem I had I forget to wash my hands after use so now they are slightly darker in between my fingers than rest of my body. πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

The smell isn’t to bad at first smells like biscuits but it does wear off after a while.

After one application this is my result..

I have to say I was a pale shade of white I’ve not applied any other products apart from bondi sands gradual everyday tanning milk.

I no longer feel like a goth even though I’m still a inner goth I feel my dark brown hair suits better with a natural looking tan.

So honestly would I recommend this product yes I would.

I would give it 4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ not giving it 5 as I really hoped it didn’t smell at all but honestly it doesn’t smell horrific otherwise I wouldn’t use it.

So I’m going to continue to use it and see how it goes but overall its a good product.

Fight or flight βœˆοΈπŸ₯Š

Hey everyone

What a week it’s been I’ve been in a constant state of fight or flight.

I’ve been in survival mode for so long that I’ve finally start to feel numb.

I’ve tried to keep away from social media this week just needed to have a quite word with myself.

Truth is I’m heartbroken on so many levels in my life to feel actual pain in my heart almost everyday this is combined situations from my past and my present situation.

Constantly feeling the need to defend myself and my actions to people they would never listen to what I have to say b it is pretty much hard work.

I always try to keep myself busy with the girls and with work

But this week I’ve not been able to block it all out aswell as I normally do

Mental health is so underfunded in the UK to many people mental health issues are misunderstood they say oh get over it pull yourself together it’s really not that easy.

Infact it’s bloody hard work to pretend you’re OK everyday when you aren’t.

Thing is with this blog I haven’t posted with intention of making people feel bad.

Infact it’s quite a different approach I’ve now taken in my life

I’ve been dwelling and I really could kick myself sometimes I’m a massive….

It’s a horrible feeling I can’t get rid off doesn’t matter how I try I just can’t move forwards and I’m not sure if I can or even if I want too.

I’m really trying my best trying to put plans in place for me to look forward im guessing somethings we can’t have or be apart of in life doesn’t matter how much we want to be apart of it.

I will be trying to relax this bank hols so I will give you a review of the bondi gradual tan when I’ve used it for the next few days.

Peace out thanks for reading…
