Sanctuary 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask

This face mask has been doing the rounds within the beauty community recently, with a lot of hype surrounding it. Sanctuary is a brand I've heard a lot about but not really tried too much from their range, though I do really like their body butter! After hearing so many people rave about this mask I decided it was time to give it a go. My skin can be pretty sensitive so, rather than buy a big tube and find out I can't use it, I decided to buy one of the sachets to give it a testing before I fully commit.

Shape Up Sunday - Week One

I think it's safe to say my first week has not been the best of starts. Having started back at work full time (then having to reduce my hours again after just one day!) I've been pretty exhausted and fitness has taken a back seat while I'm still recovering from my illness. It's pretty gutting since that was the area I was keen to improve on the most, but I feel like next week and can start to push myself a little further. But, at least I did manage to lose some weight!

My Ultimate Weekend Pamper Products

I love a good pamper evening, especially as the autumn draws in and the evenings start to get a little chillier, there's nothing better than snuggling up in a pair of pjs and treating yourself with some of your favourite things. After the week I've had, I think tomorrow is going to be one of those evenings, so I thought I'd share with you the products I'll be using to give myself a good pamper.

Birchbox - September 2014

When I came home this afternoon and discovered my Birchbox had arrived, I was so excited when I saw the design of this month's box. How cute is that?! Normally I just throw my boxes in the recycling bin as they're quite plain and boring, but I think I might keep this one for storage...of what I'm not quite sure, but I'll find something! And Birchbox are back on top form this month - "Happy Days" is certainly what I was thinking whilst I rummaged through the contents.

New Series - Shape Up Sundays

image from
If you read my graze box review you'll know that I've not exactly been healthy since I got married at the end of May. I told myself I was going to relax my diet whilst I was on honeymoon, then get straight back to healthy eating and exercise when I got home. Well, it's been almost three months since I returned to this country and the only healthy change I've made has been the graze boxes, and the pounds have been piling on. Although I'm now snacking healthily, my main meals are still not what they used to be and I've seriously been slacking on the exercise front. I'm determined not to slip back into my old ways and be the size I used to be.
