When I was asked to review BushOil for Women, I was a bit sceptical at first, but then thought why not!! We all still seem to be quite reserved about our intimate areas, but will gladly brag about sexual experiences!

So #HOWDOESYOURGARDENGROW …….

 

 

 

BUSH OIL is a unique oil blend of 100% natural ingredients including Vitamin E, Argan, Jojoba and Grapeseed. These oils are nourishing and soothing on the skin, absorbing quickly, leaving you feeling soft, hydrated and non greasy! It also contains natural anti-inflammatory properties, making it a must have if you wax or shave your lady garden!

 “Another added bonus is that it also includes a natural aphrodisiac!”

The oil is really quick and simple to use, a few drops a day leave you feeling fresh and nourished or you can use in between preening sessions to calm and soothe the skin.

“For BEST RESULTS, get your better half to do it for you!”

I love the fresh, calming scent of Bush Oil coming from the notes of Cedarwood, Lime, Apricot and Lemon. Lasting all day, leaving you feeling confident and fresh!

Sports Bra Review: Freya Active Bra

If you read my lifestyle blog Confessions of a Single Parent Pessimist, you will know that lately I’ve been knuckling down and attempting to get fit.

Due to being a single parent of a little one I don’t have the babysitting facilities or the funds to go to a gym, so I’ve been doing workout dvd programmes at home; If you follow my instagram you will have seen quite a few sweaty selfies recently!

Whilst doing a lot of high intensity workouts I’ve noticed a real need for good bra support, so have been given the chance to try out the Freya Active Bra.

I chose a size 36DD in black and naturally the best way to test it was to do a good workout!

Review: Elena Miro Top

Until recently I was completely unaware that House of Fraser have a huge plus size department on their website!

They feature many top plus-size brands including Evans, Studio 8 and Elena Miro and they even have a small selection of footwear that are UK size 10 so I shall now be browsing this section regularly.

I was sent a lovely top from Elena Miro to try as this is a brand I have never come across. It is a size 14 which I was already nervous about trying as I haven’t been that size for about five years now, but IT FITTED!

Elena Miro

I have been working out a fair bit for that last three months so this possibly helped (a lot) as the top is a silky material so there isn’t any stretching that can done to expand it.

I love the colours, the mixture of mint green, black and white work well and I really like how there are different designs on the sleeves, back and front of the top.

The cut is quite flattering with a rounded edge on the bottom of the top and it’s definitely a well-made, good quality product that compliments the plus size shape in my opinion.

This top could be combined with some leggings for a casual look or some black jeans and heels for a night out. The light, silky material felt lovely on my skin and I would wear it for nights out because it would hopefully stop me overheating!

The top was sent to me to test for the purpose of this review. No payment was made and all opinions are honest and my own. 

Can Vitamins Help Me Stay Looking Young?

As we head towards winter, many of us start to think about modifying our skin care regimes. Skin can become dry, in need of a little boost and the summer glow we managed to achieve can quickly start to fade.

Apparently vitamins and minerals can prevent and reduce wrinkles and support the health of our skin so I decided to give Evelle a try. It’s a nutritional supplement from Pharma Nord, which claims to improve the appearance and health of skin, hair and nails from within.

Evelle combines essential nutrients vitamins C and E, selenium, zinc and biotin. We struggle to get many of these vitamins and minerals in our modern day diet. Selenium, for example, is found in very low quantities in UK soils and cooking processes also deplete chromium from food, meaning many of us Brits are deficient.

All of these nutrients help to protect our cells from oxidative stress from free radicals. Free radicals, generated within the body as well as by exposure to environmental toxins and UV light, damage the skin by degrading collagen and elastin, which are responsible for maintaining the structure and elasticity of skin. The result is lines and wrinkles.

Evelle also contains plant extract Pycnogenol which works as a natural antioxidant, binding with collagen and elastin and protecting skin from various harmful enzymes.

 

 

I’ve only been using them for a couple of weeks and already I have noticed my skin feels much softer and less dry, which is handy seeing as we are coming into the colder months!

I do believe that nutrients, vitamins and minerals in the right quantities can really help our insides and outsides so I am definitely going to persist with this to see if it helps!

Review: Wingz by FatPhRocks

I don’t know about you, but I’ve struggled with the way my upper arms have looked my entire life.

Even when I lost five stone a few years ago and slimmed right down I still had big arms and never felt able to show them off.

This summer for the first ever time I’ve actually had the confidence to wear vest tops without cardigans because I no longer care what other people think of me, and would prefer to feel cooler and more comfortable instead!

Don’t get me wrong I do still get my bad days when I find it harder to have them exposed, so I’m thankful I’ve now found a new item of clothing that helps me cover my arms without a big old cardigan that covers up any pretty dresses I choose to wear like my latest, gorgeous maxi dress.

They’re called Wingz and basically are like a shrug but they go underneath your clothes rather than over the top. It is held by a strap that goes under your bra and come in a range of colours and styles as well as full length arms or 3/4 length.

 

I tried the black chiffon flare 3/4 sleeves and overall was very impressed! I chose black because a lot of my vest tops and dresses are that colour, and I wanted flared because it is a light, airy material that would suit the summer.

I tried them with a maxi dress and liked how only the sleeves were on show, because I don’t like how shrugs and cardigans cover up some of the dress as they have to be tied up, or they’re left open and baggy which ruins how my overall shape looks.

It sits nicely under my bra and is stretchy so can be worn all day without any problems.

I would love to try the lace wingz next as I think they would make a plain vest top look totally different and more dressy!

What would you pair them with?

Fatphrocks Review: Fleurs Purple and Black Maxi Dress

I’ve been lucky enough to have been sent a gorgeous maxi dress by Fatphrocks, who specialise in clothes for Tall, plus size women.

I was sent this Fleurs Purple and Black maxidress which is perfect for the summer days that we are getting here and there this month!

I wore it yesterday for a date (yes an actual first date lol) and I got a very good reaction! I love that I finally have a maxi dress that goes down to my feet, as all the ones I own are slightly short due to my 5’11 height.

It is made for a lovely, lightweight material that doesn’t crease and is perfect when you need to stay cool on the really hot days of summer.

It has adjustable straps which was also helpful, as I tend to have a small cleavage in some plus size clothes so they can be baggy. There’s also a smocked back section with some tie which means I can tighten it up or loosen depending on the day I’ve had!

dress2

I love the bright, bold colours on this dress as I love wearing stand out clothes during the summer. It has a detailed embroidery section just under the bust which helps accentuate the hips and it sparkles in the sun which is always a plus for me.

Overall this dress is very good quality, feels comfortable to wear and kept me cool during my date so it’s definitely going to be a permanent part of my wardrobe!

I teamed it up with a bright yellow satchel and some gladiator sandals, along with some bright gold eyeshadow. What would you team it with?

MooGoo Skincare Review

I’ve suffered with eczema and psoriasis since I was three years old, over my face and body, and have tried many prescribed creams which many unfortunately are steroid based.

So when I received the MooGoo products to try, I was sceptical about it helping……..

2015-06-22 11.17.45I love how the products were sent, in a cute cow box with straw inside. it also contained a booklet with products and information on different types of skin disorders, which I found very helpful.

MooGoo Skincare are an Australian brand which was “first made when the founder adapted a cream used in dairy farms to help a family member with a skin problem. The dairy version of “udder cream” was designed to heal the cow’s udders and keep them in good condition for milking. It was full of skin repair ingredients and no gimmicks. Cows don’t care too much about the latest fad in skin care, or even “Organic blends of Horsetail and Bergamot…” They do need healthy skin on their most valuable assets. Although the original cream used in the dairy farms was legendary for its skin healing properties, it was thick and greasy. MooGoo modified the cream for human use by keeping all the skin healing properties but making it non-greasy.”

I was sent Irritable Skin Balm and Soothing MSM Cream to try and began using it straight away, as my eczema has been having bad flare ups on my face and neck and I want to stop the steroid creams!

moogoo

 I’ve been using the Irritable Skin Balm everyday as I feel it has really helped my skin, its soft and quickly absorbs into my skin and works well under make up!

Due to it only containing natural ingredients like sweet almond oil, aloe vera, vitamin e and olive, it smells so fresh and not chemically!! Irritable Skin Balm is free of Paraffin Oil (Liquid Paraffin) and all other petroleum based chemicals and preservatives. So no more thick, greasy heavy eczema creams on my face!

I love this lightweight natural alternative, which feeds my skin and has no skin damaging effects like steroid based creams do.  It is also suitable for babies and adults.

Soothing MSM Cream can be used in conjunction with the Irritable Skin Balm to give a really good boost of nourishment and calmness to the skin. This cream is also suitable as an all over moisturiser, which I use on my legs after shaving as it calms the irritation straight down and stops the itching!

moogoo2

The cream is full of skin healing ingredients. Including Allantoin (Comfrey Root Active), Vitamin E, Raw Coconut Oil and Honey. It contains 10% MSM (Organic Sulfur) which has skin calming properties.

This product doesn’t smell as nice, reminded me of playdough which I cant stand!, however once the cream was absorbed I could no longer smell it, which was good 🙂

My skin was left feeling silky, smooth and hydrated.

Since using these two creams, I no longer have itchy, red, tight patches on my face and neck and have stopped needing to use steroid creams to quickly help calm my skin. I am very shocked with  how well my skin has improved in such little time and I feel so much better in myself, without feeling i’m being stared at due to the eczema.

I will definitely be recommending this range to many people, and look forward to purchasing more from them as they have a much bigger range of products from baby, body, fake tan to make up!!  For more information on MooGoo and their products click on the link MooGoo Skincare
