*Happiness Habit Jar 30 Days of Inspiration By adbra

  *I received this product for free but the opinions are my own. I was recently sent a Happiness Habit Jar * 30 Days of Inspiration with Positive Affirmations.  It couldn't have come at a better time as l ast week was a stressful one at work, I knew it was going to be very busy even before 2 people called in sick.  I could just feel things getting on top of me and then a package arrived in the post with  the Happiness Habit Jar.  The jar was so colourful with all the different notes in that I couldn't resist opening it straight away (you might notice in the photo below that the string isn't as tightly wrapped as it should be because I couldn't wait to open it).  I'm one of those people that tends to just get on with things and probably lets things build up for a while before I break, this day was looking like it was going to be a bad one and my stress levels were rising. The first affirmation that I pulled out of the jar was 'I am resilient'.  This couldn

& Other Stories - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream Dupe

Sol de Janeiro's famous Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is one of my absolute favourite products ever, I just adore the scent (you can find my thoughts on the products from this brand here, here and here ). Unfortunately, as it is a rather pricey product at £44 for 240ml, it's a treat for me rather than a regular purchase, so I was intrigued to hear about a dupe for the scent sold by & Other Stories.  & Other Stories is one of my favourite stores and I have bought lots of jewellery from them as they sell really nice pieces at reasonable prices.

Of course I had to go investigate at my nearest store and I picked up a couple of products to try out. First was the Perle de Coco Body Lotion which costs £8 for 350ml. As it's a body lotion rather than a cream, it is not as thick, rich and creamy as BBBC,

Life in lockdown Part 5 - The Never Ending Story

I can't believe it's June already. Where has the time gone, it is just flying by so quickly which is strange as we haven't been able to do that much in lockdown.   I'm sure most of us would have holidays booked or have already been on holiday but hopefully we can get back to that soon  I definitely can't wait to go abroad again where my biggest worry is what to do that day.   Who knows what the future holds but hopefully with vaccinations now available there is light at the end of the tunnel.   I seem to have lost all my motivation over the last couple of months, I don't know if it was the rubbish weather in May or what but this last couple of weeks of brilliant sunshine it just seems easier to do things again.  I definitely enjoy these lighter nights as I feel like I can get much more done. Anyway I thought I would catch up on what I have been up to since my last post.  I must admit that when the lockdown eased a little I did go shopping and bought a fair few t
