Welcome all Disney lovers, I have a treat for you lot today! Oh yes, I was contacted by Mad Beauty to review a few of their products from their super cute Disney range - I was obviously incredibly excited to share my thoughts, since I am huge lover of Disney and I also really love Mad Beauty! They have so much to offer from cosmetics to stationery to adorable hand sanitiser all in fun, novelty prints.. so if you're looking for a cute retro notebook or lip glosses featuring a variety of Disney quotes look no further! I think Mad Beauty is the perfect place to go if you're looking for gifts, I know that my younger sister would love everything from their Disney collection and I've already spotted 20+ stocking filler ideas (for anyone who does their Christmas shopping super early, haha!) so I know where I'll be going to buy presents this December! Everything is also pretty cheap with the majority of products being under £10 so no need to break the bank! But yes, I hope you enjoy my little review of the products I was lucky enough to receive - let me know in the comments if you've ever tried anything from Mad Beauty before, I would love to know!
I love doing these little tag posts every now and again and I was feeling inspired by one of Gabby's recent videos where she shared some of the things she would save if there was ever a fire in her home! Luckily, I've never had to deal with a house fire in my life *touches wood* but it really got me thinking about some of the bits I would try my best to save if I got the chance to, because there's definitely a few bits that are super sentimental to me in this house! To be honest, I am pretty lucky though, since the majority of my sentimental bits and bobs are at my Mum's house... (including my box full of every sentimental thing I own!)... is that cheating!? Also, I know in reality you probably wouldn't have time to grab 10 things from your house (let's be honest) but you kind of have to use your imagination a bit... Although I won't be tagging anyone specifically I think it would be really great for some other bloggers to get involved in this tag too - so be sure to leave links to your own '10 Things I Would Save In A Fire' posts in the comments below!
I'm a huge lover of self care and I genuinely think it should be an important part of everyone's life. I understand that sometimes we do forget how important it is to look after ourselves though and we all go through those times where we're too busy to properly give ourselves a well needed break! I've been a bit like this recently, with trying to finish my dissertation off my self care has been getting slightly lapse and I haven't been treating myself too kindly or giving myself time off for my sanity to rejuvenate! I definitely find though that when my self care gets a bit lapse my mental health tends to suffer too and I tend to get more anxious or have more bad mental health days - I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets like this, so I thought I would write a quick blog post with a list of my favourite ways to self care, all in one place to inspire you (and me!) to spend more time caring about number 1! Some of these are super simple too so you'll never be to busy spend a bit of time loving yourself - trust me, you'll thank me later!
I've done a few of these evening pamper routines in the past, so I guess this is sort of an updated version - but if you want to go back and have a read of my past ones to see how I used to relax and unwind you can click here and here! I've definitely been sure to pamper myself recently, I've had so much going on in the past month I honestly think pamper routines are what keep me sane, haha! Honestly though, 'me time' is so bloody important and I couldn't recommend even just giving yourself an evening to rejuvenate and shake off all the stresses of daily life... even just for half an hour - we all need a break every now and again! We all know I'm a bit of a bubble bath addict so I do end up having a fair few baths in my time, but when I need a full-on pamper I take time to treat myself and use all my favourite products to leave me feeling relaxed and smelling fabulous! So I hope you enjoy this little post and agree with my pamper routine essential recommendations - let me know in the comments some of your favourite pamper products, I need new recommendations too!
