Happy Saturday!

If you have read my previous posts, you will know that I have decided to up my blogging game and spend more time on my organisation and photos. I received this beautiful green journal for christmas and I have finally got round to using it! It's such a beautiful colour and the paper is amazing quality. I can't find the exact colour combination online but you can purchase one similar from Paper Blanks. The pink book is a daily notepad of all the things I need to do in the day, including what order to shoot the products and when I need to upload posts.

I was also recently sent a 30 day trial of Skinade. So what is Skinade? 

Skinade is a drink. It works from the inside out to rebuild and strengthen the collagen matrix below the skin’s surface, boost natural levels of hydration and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

The high-grade collagen is sourced from fresh-water fish, which is low in sodium and avoids mercury contamination. It is a precious ingredient and we include 7000mg in each bottle.

Skinade contains only the highest quality ingredients with no artificial flavours or colouring and fewer than 35 calories. With natural flavours of peach and mangosteen, it offers a pleasant tasting and convenient addition to your daily skincare regime.

Drinking Skinade on a daily basis results in firmer, more even toned, hydrated, radiant, youthful and healthier looking skin. It reduces fine lines and wrinkles and repairs connective tissue, so you’ll also benefit from stronger, healthier and faster-growing hair and nails.

Today is the start of my 30 day trial, and I will update you all on my progress!

When i opened the gift box the smell was amazing! I haven't tested every product yet but so far the moisturiser has worked wonders on my cold hands and the nail butter is so creamy! 

It's a great piece of mind to know that you are actually using natural products which have not caused any harm to animals and are genuinely good for your body!

Lip Glam

Yesterday, I received this LipGlan multipurpose moisturiser and I had to share it with you. I have seen so many people talking about this product so I had to try it out for myself! 

Discover beautiful softness with LipGlam, a lanolin lip balm that lets your natural radiance shine through. This fast-acting lip balm delivers instant dryness relief and 8-hour moisture, while restoring your skin’s natural defences.
LipGlam’s key ingredient is lanolin, a natural emollient extracted from sheep’s wool. Lanolin is one of nature’s finest oils, holding moisture in the skin for deep hydration. We blend it with natural botanicals, resulting in a readily absorbed balm that replenishes instantly. LipGlam leaves your lips soft and dewy, with an instant plumping effect. It revitalizes your skin’s natural barrier and resistance to environmental toxins. By optimizing your natural defenses, it reactivates inner radiance and ensures a healthy glow.
LipGlam is 100% natural and specially formulated to soothe sensitive skin. It is dermatologically tested and ideal for those with easily irritated skin. It can also be used for dry skin relief and is proven to reduce skin roughness by 40%. Simple, natural and indulgent, LipGlam makes it easy to have soft, beautiful lips every day.
  • Contains natural lanolin

I am going to start using the product tomorrow and I will keep you up to date with how I get on.

In the mean time, I am running a competition with LipGlam so one lucky follower can get their hands on this product. I will be posting the competition via Twitter in the next hour so make sure you enter, all you have to do is RT & follow!

The end of 'January Blues'

So this month has been nothing but mass eating, pale skin and and an empty purse, and I can not wait for it to be over. Never wanting to wish time away but this month has really dragged! 

So what have I done this month? I decided to make a real effort to get my blogging going and making time to take photos and put effort into ideas and posts. I recently got my Pinterest back on track and pinned down all my ideas about everything I love and want to do. My fabulous man bought me a beautiful diary for Christmas and it's time that I started noted everything down! I get inspiration from the strangest places and don't want to forget any important thoughts! (But don't you just hate writing nervously in a diary for the first time, trying not to ruin it.)

I've decided to start a blogging calendar and note down all important events/dates so I can be prepared and scheduled up in plenty of time. I always end up rushing posts a couple of days in advance & it's unnecessary stress. I want to make a real effort with meeting all the special dates this year with themed posts etc.

Okay, so apart from blogging, I recently got a little car so I am not dependant on anyone else for lifts and getting the bus. Now I have my car, I can't remember what I did without it! It's such a great feeling of independence! So if you see a bright red mini with a union jack on the roof zoom past in Norwich, it's me! (Don't judge my driving skills!)

At work it's been super busy with a massive 50% OFF sale. If you didn't already know, I work as the Social Media Manager for LoveClothing, so go follow us @loveclothing ! We're planning a trip to the Pure London Show to get some new SS15 pieces for our site. If there are any pieces you like and think we should stock, please let me know!

I joined the gym so I can go with my boyfriend & he can motivate me.  I don't want to loose any weight or gain any muscle, just want to maintain my fitness & figure and tone my butt a little more. I set a couple of goals and i inevitably want to be more flexible! The first trip was not so successful as I spent the whole time on a cycling machine and on Instagram, which apparently was "classic Vic, always sat on your ass" but as far as I was concerned, I was just breaking into the gym routine.

Overall this month, the one thing I have learnt.. 
"Organisation is key."
