Maxitone 4kg Kettlebell

This post is different from what I usually post but it is still a review. I am currently on a health kick trying to lose weight and improve my health. I have been going to gym but my gym is back at uni so I started doing dvds whilst on Easter break. This is really cringey but my favourite exercise dvd is Clubland Work it Out. I started getting bored so I started to research other dvds and exercises I could do at home. Enter the kettlebell. After reading around the benefits of kettlebells I was sold.

Life: How To Manage Your Money at University

Money! You don't realise how much things really cost until you start paying for everything yourself. You may feel like you're turning in to your parents. You now understand why they would say no when you pick up the most expensive item. You are now saying no to yourself thinking budget not luxury. You may need that 50p later on.

When you first get your loan you are hit with a lump sum of money you have probably never had before. Hence why some students go a little bit crazy in the first few weeks then struggle in the last week. This can all be avoided if you learn to manage your money and maximise it. You don't have to struggle with your money.

Lush Golden Egg Bath Bomb

I know this is a bit late Easter has been and left us for another year. However, I still wanted to share with you my recent Easter purchase from Lush. The Golden Egg Bath Bomb is a mixture of a bath melt and bath bomb. The glittery outer layer melts away to reveal the bath bomb.

Swissco Precision Blending Sponge

I have wanted to try a beauty blender for some time but I don't know whether to commit myself. I rarely use sponges on my face as I think you can get a makeup brush for everything. However, I think I may have been converted with this sponge.

Sunday Style: Spring Florals

When it gets to this time of year the shops are flooded with floral prints. It wouldn't be spring clothing if it didn't have florals on it.  Here are my top picks from around the high street and the web.


If you don't want to go all out with the florals a top will do the trick. It will make a simple outfit look summery.

Scholl Express Pedi

Ever since moving to uni my feet have been getting hard. Its probably due to the fact I actually had to start doing things and walking about a lot. But it most definitely has to do with my love of flat shoes. However, the express pedi has made my silky smooth feet reappear.
I purchased this from Amazon for £19.99(currently £24.99). It has gone up in price now but if you wait it out I think the price may go down.  But it isn't often sold at its full price(£39.99).

Benefit Boo Boo Zap!

I currently use rubbing alcohol to dry out my spots. It probably isn't the best thing but it does work. I purchased this for £9 from ASOS but it is now unavailable. You can still purchase it through Benefit stockists at the price of £16. 

I'm not really a fan of Benefit makeup as I find it quite heavy on my skin. I was still open to testing their skincare range though.

Sunday Style: Swimwear Hot Picks

If you're like me shopping for swimwear is definitely a struggle. But summer is coming so swimwear is definitely a must, whether you are sunning it up abroad or we finally get a hot summer here. These are my hot picks for swimwear this year. All the links will be at the bottom of this post.

Budget Bikinis

You have probably already forked out for that holiday so you don't want to be spending too much on your holiday clothes. These bikinis are perfect on a budget.

Body Shop Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Facial Exfoliator

I have been having very bad skin lately. It is probably a combination of many things but it needed dealing with. I usually have the seaweed clarifying toner which leaves my skin really soft. I would also recommend the toner as well as this face wash. This currently retails for £9 but I paid £5.40 on the 40% off deal.
