Review - Bella and Bear 'Brush on you' set and 'The Pluckers' set*

bella and bear brush on you set review
I am really smitten with the Bella and Bear brand, they have adorable, pretty products and packaging, all being of high quality, the Bella and Bear brush on you set (£16.99) is no exception. The duo of comb and brush claims to detangle wet hair painlessly, and can be used on all hair types!

The detangling brush is the perfect shape and light to hold, the brush has firm cone shaped bristles which can be used on damp and dry hair, and claims to stimulate and remove tangles painlessly. I love this brush, it is relaxing to use and glides through the hair easily and free from pain. The brush also eliminates hair loss. The comb is to be used in the shower, I used it during washing out of conditioner which it helped to remove whilst leaving my hair feeling soft and smooth. After using these two in conjunction with each other my hair has been noticeably softer and shinier and it really does work with the tangles.

The tweezer set (£15.50) is just as pretty to look at, coming with three tweezers and a lovely case to carry them in, making it perfect for travel. The slant tweezers, are versatile they can be used for splinters, plucking ingrown hairs and as flat tweezers. The straight tweezers are perfect for general hair removal for face and bikini. The pointed tweezers are for easy precision to use on ingrown hair, splinters etc. I can never have too many tweezers, someone always steals them and this set includes everything I could need for removal. 

Have you tried any of the Bella and Bear products, they really are lovely and such good quality.

The Little Things

So some of you may or may not have noticed that I've been a little bit absent from blogging/social media, with what feels like a million things happening in my personal life, college, work, family and boy problems I've been finding it hard to keep on top of things. Then towards the end of November my laptop decided to break on me. My new one arrived yesterday so hopefully I'll be able to get back into blogging and sort my blog out since for some reason the majority of my photos have decided to break, I have no idea how to fix it other than reloading all the images up again!

Early Christmas presents, my Mum gave me some money towards clothes so I took advantage of the cyber weekend. I chose a skater dress in paisley print, boyfriend t-shirt with a fox/antlers prints, Navy jeggings, a fluffy jumper, Baroque floral crop top and three pairs of shoes! I never buy my self clothes so it felt odd knowing I could for once! 

Getting the xmas decorations out! I've added a few to my collection this year, the little Santa and jingly Snowman which I picked up in Italy then the handmade snowflake! 

This little Owl candle, it may not smell amazing but its cute and could quite happily adorn my shelve for a while. I've had my eye on these pajama bottoms for a while, I love them, they are so snug and perfect for cold mornings!

Yesterday we celebrated our Mamma's 80th birthday at the Apple Tree, it was a nice get together with good company and amazing food, I opted for Nachos for a starter, a vegetarian toad in the hole for the main and creme brulee for dessert, yummy. 

What little things have made your week?

Review - Snapfish personalised photos gifts and calendars*

With Christmas fast approaching like me you may be stuck for ideas on what to buy people. I love photos, and I've mentioned before I love printing photographs off. Snapfish is the perfect site to create quirky personalised gifts or a treat for yourself, with items such as calendars, mugs, decorations, cards and more there really is something for everyone. Snapfish is a really easy website to use,  you create an album of photos you want to use by uploading or using social media sites and away you go designing your own items.

When I was creating this calender I wasn't sure I would like it, I didn't know what photos to use, but I loved that you could add quotes under the photos so I chose ones relating to the photos. I would have loved to have used photos that matched each other but I did a mix and match instead and when it arrived I loved the result. The quality of the calender and image print is really good, especially for the price. There is plenty of room to jot down important dates, I'm really looking forward to hanging this up!

I couldn't resist getting a snowflake ornament, I could have chose a better picture but I wanted something Christmasy and a photo of a Penguin was my only option, I'm giving this to my Grandma since she loves Penguins! Again, I'm really impressed with the quality of the item. Next up is the keyring, which is really affordable, I've wanted a picture of me on 'my' throne for a while although it did cut the end of which was more than likely my fault.

The jigsaws come in three different sizes, I opted for the smaller one with 40 pieces, I love the idea of a jigsaw and think it would make a great Christmas day activity (maybe the bigger ones.) I chose a picture from my trip to new york from the top of the Empire State Building and it turned out to be quite tricky putting back together because of the sky and buildings! The jigsaw and picture is really good quality.

Without a doubt my favourite, coasters with my Dogs on them! I used a mixture of camera and phone photos throughout all of these items and I did get a warning on a few saying that the quality might not be up to scratch, well all of the photos bar one where the warning popped (top right coaster) came out sort of blurry. The coasters are hard, the photos shiny and glossy. I'm really impressed.

The only downside is, since I ordered a few items they were posted out separately arriving on different days. But maybe that has something to do with how long some items take to make compared others. Either way I am super impressed and will definitely be using this site again. Let me know what you think!
