A Few of My Favourite Things in May

Image
Wow I cannot believe May is nearly over, this year is going so fast.  Anyway here are some of my favourite things in May. Hugh Jackman The Man The Music The Show concert   at Manchester Arena was absolutely fabulous and the highlight was seeing Keala Settle sing This is Me live, she was brilliant and the song really should have won the Oscar for Best Song.  Hugh was a great showman and kept us entertained all night and really played to the crowd.  The tickets were expensive, but it was definitely worth it to see a Hollywood Star in person. Federal Café in Manchester has great food.  Its a small café with a couple of locations in Manchester city centre and serves the best French Toast I have ever had.  Check them out here . I love this time of year as it means I have an excuse to get my fix of Thorntons Ice Cream. I love to get a 2 scoop cone for £3.50.  You get plenty of flavours to choose from and generously sized scoops of ice cream.  My favourite flavours include toffe

Bioglan Beauty Collagen Gummies & Effervescent

I am always looking for ways to improve the condition of my hair, skin and nails, so when I received the Bioglan Beauty Collagen Gummies and Effervescent * I was really keen to give them a go. The products harness the power of type 1 marine sourced collagen which is the most abundant form of collagen found in the body.  Clinical studies have shown that marine collagen helps to reduce wrinkle depth and increase moisture levels in all skin types. Each dose  of the Bioglan Beauty Collagen contains vitamin C, biotin and selenium. Considering collagen production begins to reduce by the age of 25, it definitely can't hurt to use supplements like these on a daily basis.  I found that the gummies were really easy to incorporate into my daily routine.  You need to take 2 daily and they taste like strawberry sweets, so there's no nasty medicinal taste with them  It's almost like a little treat everyday with the added bonus that you are caring for your body at the same time.  Eac

Bloom and Blossom Revitalising Leg and Foot Spray

Image
I came across Bloom and Blossom Revitalising Leg and Foot Spray originally when I was browsing some beauty sites and have been using it quite a lot recently.  When I go on holiday I always like to take this product with me as I do so much walking that my legs are sore and aching at the end of every day.  Added to that I have to do a fair bit of walking to get to and from work nowadays.  Bloom and Blossom Revitalising Leg and Foot Spray has come to the rescue.  This spray has been developed to alleviate water retention, and refresh tired and heavy legs, ankles and feet. It's such an easy product to use.  I simply spray it onto my legs before I go to bed every night and they immediately feel cool and refreshed.  The product contains horse chestnut seed extract which has anti-inflammatory and decongesting properties, tangerine leaf oil helps to reduce water retention and tone the skin, yellow leaf clover extract helps to reduce swelling and improve circulation and aloe vera helps

A Few of My Favourite Things in April

Image
Wow I cant believe how quickly this year is going.  I didn't even get a chance to post about my favourite things in March.  Anyway here are my favourite things in: I went to see Take That at Sheffield Arena during April and I loved it, it was a great concert one of my favourites.  I was lucky enough to be on the front row at the side for one of the concerts as I had bought VIP tickets and it was well worth it as we had a great view and at times the guys were a couple of feet away from us.  I think it will be one of the best things I do all year. I also spent some time in Sheffield as I went to 2 concerts and I had a great time.  I stayed for a couple of days in a hotel across from Sheffield Arena and ate at Carluccio’s which had the best Carbonara that I’ve eaten and also had desserts at Thirty Nine Desserts and I have to say the desserts were so tasty and they were big portions at really reasonable prices.  I will definitely be finding an excuse to go back ag

YoungHair The Root Fix Temporary Root Cover Review

Image
I thought I would post about one of my must use products that I always use when I have those pesky grey hairs showing at my roots when I need to colour my hair again but am just too lazy to do it.  I originally received The Root Fix Temporary Root Cover* to try out a couple of years ago from YoungHair but have since purchased the product myself as it's a great product that works for me.  I had not come across the YoungHair brand before I was sent the product originally, but it is a small family-owned business started in Sweden.  The family has 50 years of experience working with hair in a salon in a small coastal town in Sweden. I have dark brown hair, with a patch of grey right on my centre parting which can be very inconvenient.  I regularly colour my hair at home, but there is usually a couple of centimetres of grey around my parting before I recolour my hair, so I was very glad to try out this product.  It's a waterproof colour spray that gently and temporarily covers
