Exciting News: I’m Expecting!

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to share with you that I am 12 weeks and 3 days pregnant and due on the 23rd of September which may explain as to why I have been so unactive on here for a while! Along with feeling happy and excited to meet my little baby have come with a few problems.

All the way through my first trimester my blood pressure has been very low leading to me feeling exhausted and dizzy all the time, I have also fainted a couple of times at work which has been pretty scary. I have now had to quit my job as I can not cope with meeting the demands they required and stand for long periods without feeling faint. I want what is best for me and my baby and to try to have a steady pregnancy as I am only 5ft2 and have a small frame.

Although I have been struggling, I am now starting to pick myself up so you should be expecting plenty of pregnancy posts, updates and baby hauls which I am super excited to do!! I hope you are all as happy and excited as I am and looking forward to going through the incredible journey of me becoming a mother.

Take care & lots of love

Remington Pro-Ceramic Hair Straightener Review.

Hello everyone, I would like to share with you my favourite hair straightener which in my opinion beats any top straightener out there even GHDs.

I asked my boyfriend probably over 20 times if he could buy me the Remington Pro-Ceramic Hair straightener after using my sister in law’s before a night out and fell in love with them.

The features are:

  • Wide plates
  • Even heat distribution to prevent snagging
  • Digital LCD display heat setting of up to 230 Celsius.
  • Free heat resistant pad
  • 15 second heat-up time
  • Heat ready indicator
  • Ceramic plates.
  • Width of plates 45mm, length of plates 110mm
  • 1.8m swivel cord
  • Automatic safety shut-off after 60 minutes.

 

 

 

What I love about this hair straightener:

  • The wide plates- I have medium length hair so when it comes to straightening my hair it becomes a big chore and used to take me half an hour to do. With these it takes me 10 minutes!
  • Snag free- A big peeve of mine is that most hair straighteners snag your hair, cause dryness and breakage. I find these glide through my hair and my hair has been in so much better condition since using them.
  • Free heat resistant pad- Yes I know you can buy these separately and alot of hair straighteners  do come with them but I just got too excited in getting one for free because if you are clumsy like me you end up burning your dressing table or bed without one!
  • Light weight- They may have wide plates and look a bit heavy but don’t be mistaken! These are the lightest straighteners I have used and find I don’t get achy arms any more!

So if you are looking for a new hair straightener I highly recommend you try these out you will be very surprised. They cost £50.00 but I have looked on Amazon and they are currently going for £30.89 with free delivery!

Thanks for reading

Take care

HOW MY BLOG STARTED

Many of you will know this but I shall tell you that don’t know. For years my friend lucy has wanted me to start a blog because I have always been good with advice and tips around beauty and life but I never had the confidence to get it started but after a lot of pestering I plucked up the courage to start my own blog and here I am 3 months later, I am so glad I listened!

ADVICE FOR NEW BLOGGERS

  1. Be yourself and Post what YOU want to post.
  2. Show your followers a bit of appreciation, like replying to comments, remembering to say thank you or if you don’t have anything to say just simply like their comment, it takes two seconds.
  3. Don’t worry if you don’t have time to post this week or haven’t posted for a number of weeks, sometimes we can help that life gets in the way and most people will understand that, enjoy yourself and don’t take your blog too seriously.

I NOMINATE:
