Visits –

Back when I was younger, which is a long time ago now that I am hitting 32 next year, I used to visit loads of places with my friends and meet people who I spoke to online, I have been to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Loch Ness,Newcastle and of course London..

Now that I am older and my anxiety has been worse than its ever been in my life, I no longer travel as confidently as I used too, I did manage to visit Birmingham in the summer but it took a lot of guts to get on that train..

But my favorite place I have ever visited is probably Torbay down on the southwest coast of England, I went there with my now husband and his family back when I was 19 weeks pregnant with K and it was beautiful..

I hope that one day I have my worries and anxiety under control and take a trip with my children so they can enjoy the beauty of England too.

until next time

Another month has swung past us, why must this year go so slowly? but one month ends means another monthly favorites, I did a poll on my twitter about if I should stick to my plan and start monthly favourites in January OR do one for the rest of the year and all the votes said do November and December as well..

Here we go…

Home – These two candles from Next are by far my new favorite scents! Mulled Wine and Gingerbread, I got them in a bit of a wim and was a little worried they would be to sickly as some scented candles can be, but while they are strong in wax form once lit they are wonderfully subtle scented and are delightful! If you see them please try them out, there is reed defuses too in the same scents, they do a little gift set too which you can try all the scented candle range.

Treats – Its that time of year, hot chocolate season and I have been obsessed with these lovely little things from Options, strawberry flavored and delicious! I found them when I was doing Slimming World a few years back and have loved them since! they taste very similar to the strawberry creme you get in the selection boxes.

Beauty – Two for this month, or three depending on how you look at it, these two eyebrow products are my absolute favorite, I have tried everything going besides getting microblading and these have been the two best ones I have used, one is a mascara for your little eyebrow hairs and the other is a pencil.

Imperal Leather do this amazing bath product, I found it last year but in a bubble bath form and they have also got a shower cream version which I needed to get! it smells exactly like cherry bakewells, you can smell the pastry! its delightful!

Baby – I am obsessed with baby clothes, and seeing as my little girl is called Robin, I have taken the opportunity to go out there and find all the clothes I can with robins on them, this one is from Boden but I found it on ebay, its so pretty in person and she looks cute while wearing it! I have found a few more Boden items on ebay which I will definitely show you when they arrive. who can resist that cute red breasted bob!

Entertainment – Gaming again for my entertainment, we dont really watch much tv in our house but we do play a lot of games and lately I have been sitting down enjoying Rainbow Six Siege with a few friends on my xbox, its a lot of fun, you have four game modes, Terrorist Hunt, Protect the Hostage, Extract Hostage and Disarm Bomb and the aim of it all is to win hah, it has an offline mode which you play with 4 other people against bots OR if you are feeling adventurous there is a multiplayer mode which you play against other people around the world. I have had so much fun on this game lately and there is a new update coming soon with three new characters you can play as. exciting times haha

Animal Crossing New Leaf on the good old DS, which Mr S got me for christmas last year, I keep forgetting about it but once in a while I pick it up and play it like crazy, its just coming to the end of the year in my little town and the snow is starting to fall, you are a Mayor in charge of a town, you have to help build things and talk to the villagers who change often.. its really relaxing and i’m trying to get into a routine where I play it every day so I don’t put it down and forget to pick it up again in a months time.. if you have a DS I highly recommend you pick it up as its just such a lovely little game to take your mind off things.

Music

‘I feel sexy and free, like glitter is rainin’ on me’

While this is now classed as ‘old’ its such a lovely upbeat song that I have listened to a lot lately, nothing special about it, its just a lot of fun to dance to.

and that’s it

Until next time

On Wednesday 22nd November we had our children’s parents evening, expecting the worst like everyone does Mr S and I was pleasantly surprised to how wonderful K and A are progressing at school, they have friends and are gaining confidence which they didn’t have in the previous years.

A is smart, we always knew she was a clever little girl when she was smaller but the fact that she loves school and loves to learn proves how smart she is, her handwriting is amazing, it’s almost better than mine, and I loved being able to see her progress from the start of year one to now, her confidence has grown so much, she’s even turned into a bit of a cheeky madam by not completely telling the truth about some leaf throwing, I couldn’t help but laugh when her teacher told me that as I could imagine her reaction.

I’m just so proud of her (not the cheeky lying) but just how much she’s coming out of her shell and being a completely different child.

K, I was a bit more worried about, thanks to a funny year 1 he was a little behind in a lot of his goals but had managed to catch up with some of it in year two and entering into year three, I was concerned that his new teacher wasn’t going to be as good as the year two teacher, but I was surprised at how much he’s improved and enjoying school, they’ve been doing about Greek mythology and has learnt so much about them, he’s been telling us about the Minotaur and other little bit bits of information, he’s almost got his ‘pen license’ which means he can write without mistakes with a pen rather than a pencil and he read to my mum the other day saying words I didn’t even know he could read.

He’s excited to learn and I couldn’t be more prouder of him and seems to be really enjoying school, putting his hand up in class and being a lot more confident with his work.

I’m just so proud of them both, I know I’ve said that many times over this post but I can’t help it, I’m so glad they both love school so much, A came home from school on the Friday with another ‘super star’ certificate and K’s class got 100% attendance which means he gets extra play and an award, they get so excited when they get these little awards and stickers and I’m so happy for them.

Here’s to the follow up parents evening in the summer

Until next time

We did nothing this week, my anxiety was really bad so the thought of going outside with my camera really pushed me into hiding and living under a rock for a bit..

But I got the chance to sort through photos and organize my portable hard drive, I uploaded some photos onto my personal Facebook and looked back at the fun month of October.

October just flew past us without even stopping to let us enjoy it all, but I’m glad we went pumpkin picking again this year, feeling more confident as a blogger and a photographer..

I do sort of miss the pumpkins.

Until next time

Another month flies past but it does mean that the November Glossybox is just around the corner and like always I am excited to get it, nothing has been bad about Glossybox and last months was such a delight that I couldn’t wait for this months.DSC_0029

Charcoal and Willow Bark Sheet Mask – I got Mr S to try this as my skin can be a little sensitive and he spend all of the 15 minutes the mask was meant to be on complaining about it. The mask itself smelt really nice but did leave a sticky residue on the skin.

DSC_0037

Define and Perfect Eyebrow Powder – who doesn’t like new eyebrow products! I however couldn’t get the hang of this one, it wasn’t a liquid like I expected, yes I know it says powder on the bottle, but I do enjoy trying different things for eyebrows as like I’ve said before, mine are super fair.. I think with something like this, practice definitely makes perfect.

DSC_0042

Contour Brush – the full size item this month was this contour brush, now contouring isn’t something I’ve actually tried because I’m not sure how to actually do it but the brush can also be used for applying powders which is what I’ve been doing, it is a really nice brush!

DSC_0046

Candy Floss Moisturizing Lip Balm – This product smells delightful! It really does smell like a sweet and I’ve been using it daily since I got it, it’s smooth and really easy to use, I couldn’t find the exact product online but I did find another delicious scent to try, but if you do find this in the shops and like the odd lip balm, grab it!

DSC_0049

Natural Bodywash Relaxing Geranium and Peppermint – equally wonderfully scented as the lip balm, I’ve used it a couple of times and I really like it, the peppermint isn’t to overpowering and it’s just a nice light body wash, it’s vegan friendly and is all natural ingredients.

And that’s it, once again I’ve really loved this months box, I really feel it’s such good value for money and you get some wonderful different items to try each month.
