Hello! In my last post I was unsure whether or not to do Florida posts but I mainly want to do it so I have it to look back on! I am not going to spam you all I am going to dot them between posts.
Anyway I traveled from Manchester to Sanford Florida with Thomson airlines. The flight was 11:25 so plenty of time for a Frankies and Bennies breakfast (was that hungry there is sadly no picture) then onto WHSmiths for some water and magazines.
I have never done a long haul flight before so a 9 hour flight was very daunting for someone who isn’t a fan of flying! However it was free drinks (soft and alcoholic) the whole flight and also two meals and snacks. After about an hour we were given a bit of chicken and veg and some crackers with cheese. Just your standered plane meal, about an hour before landing we were given a roll and scone. I was so disappointed with the TV and films available but it did the job.
We arrived in Sanford around 3:30 and had to wait for a storm to pass before leaving the plane. Then we had to queue at the boarder to have a face to face questioning by boarder control where they questioned your visit and took finger prints.
After we got our bags I was sat on a Micky mouse bus off to the hotel! 1 hour a lot of rain and traffic later I arrived at Conorado Springs Resort Disney. Even from the lobby I was happy with the choice of hotel it was modern, clean and very over the top! With Disney being so popular I was expecting a tiny room with it just being the two of us but it was very spacious with a HUGE bed!
By now it was about 6 and I was tired and hungry so I went to the hotels restaurant and had a quick serve meal (Disney terms for counter services).
Trying to beat the jet lag I decided that going to watch the “amazing” fireworks at Magic Kingdom to decide for myself. I have to say if you visit Florida at all go to Magic Kingdom at night and watch the fireworks brought a tear to my eye and I felt 5 again! That was all for the first day of my trip to Florida! I hope you enjoyed reading this little travel blog! Comment your favourite county to visit!
Hello I am back, very tired, jet lagged and a little tanned I think the only way I can keep myself awake is to write this blog post! So todays post is going to be the June Love Me Beauty June bag/box, for those of you that are not familiar Love Me Beauty is a monthly subscription box where you pick what you want!
If you want to read more about the box then click here.
Any way I will get started this month I had extra credits to use so I got a little more than usually, but yet again I am so happy with the product quality. I got 5 products this month and a make up bag.
First Product I picked was the Eco Tools six piece day to night set, if you read my reviews each month then you will know how much I love the Eco Tools brushes that are available on love me beauty. This set comes with an angled face brush, pointed concealer brush, highlighting fan brush, eye shadow brush and a lip liner brush and also comes in a make up bag!
Next thing I picked up was a Pop Band I have heard really good things about these, if you don’t know what they are its a hair bobble. They are supposed to be gentle on your hair, going to start using them to sleep in.
Next thing I picked was a detox mask by caudalie, never heard of this brand before but I love a good detox mask. The packaging is great very sturdy and its 15ml which I think is a good size for a sample product.
The 4th product I chose this month was more brushes, I much rather receive tools as I grudge paying for them otherwise. This set is a little travel set and consists of a Powder and a foundation brush, I love travel size brushed as they don’t take up much room in your bag! Again these as Eco Tools so I know I will love them.
The Last product I picked up was mainly to test the brand itself they are Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips (press on lip stick), I have seen nothing but good things about CT and would love a good nude lipstick from there but want to see if they stay on all day! (any recommendations let me know!)
Thank you so much for reading, taken me so long to focus on writing this due to jet lag. Let me know in the comments if you want some Florida/Disney related posts!
Happy Sunday, I am so excited writing this post as I go on holiday in two days! Jetting off to sunny Florida, I have not scheduled anything to go up while I am away as I want to escape from everything and just relax. I will be posting on my Instagram so follow me over there to follow me around Florida!
However, that aside todays blog post is going to be a whats in my evening bag post. There is nothing worse than taking a huge bag out with you at night, say on a date night or if you are catching a movie with friends. I am using the Molly Boutiques Marseille bag, this bag is only £30 and is available here, use the code ‘melissajones20’ for 20% off EVERYTHING!
A Bit About My Bag
The bag its self has three compartments which is great as I carry way too much stuff, the 3 pockets are very roomy and have a lot of space. It is bigger than a lot of shoulder bags which I have had in the past, which is a good thing and the reason I tend to get bigger bags! The bag as a flap which fastens with a magnet, which is good as everything is secure.
Whats In It?
I try and keep the bare necessity, I try not to overload it with stuff I don’t need, So I like to keep it simple!
Thats all I really carry about with me at night, I keep it nice and simple as I hate carrying a heavy bag around with me.
Hello! At the moment I am so obsessed with skin care and trying to make it look the best it has! This post is in collaboration with Julia I am going to tell you my best and worst for Oily skin and if you go visit Julia’s blog if you suffer with dry skin!
I have suffered with oily/spot prone skin since I was about 12/13, so I have tried out my fair share of face washes, scrubs and masks from drug store and high end products! Obviously everyones skin is different these may or may not work on my skin and might not on yours! So lets get started..
That is all for my Best and Worst products for Oily Skin, If you suffer from dry skin the jump over to Julia’s blog to view her post! Let me know what you love skincare wise!
Thanks for reading.
Now I hope this is going to be my last haul until after my holidays now 🙈. As I need to stop spending money on everything and anything! Recently I have been obsessed with skincare, I have been using a product from The Body Shop for my spots and loved it (read about it here) so I decided to experiment with some more of there products.
I have oily skin which is very dull and tired, I also find too many anti oil products make it dry! I know I can’t win, so at the moment I am experimenting new products.
So I’ll get started on what I have recently bought from the body shop. Bought all of this online except 2!
First thing I picked up was the Seaweed oil balancing Toner. I haven’t used a toner since I was about 15 and used to use it religiously, found a lot of toners on the high street very harsh on my skin. However this one leaves your skin feeling clean and fresh and doesn’t sting or tingle when your apply it! I do think it has helped to balance the oil out in my skin, if you’re looking for a gentle toner then this is one for you! I just apply a little bit on a cotton pad and apply to my face gently!
Every summer I forget how important Vitamin C is for my skin! I always end up burning my face or getting dry patches on my skin so I thought this might help! I’ve only used this once so far and so far so good I couldn’t believe how AMAZING this smelt if you do not like the smell of oranges then maybe avoid this one but I think it smells amazing. As for the product it’s self, I really like it it’s very silking on the skin! Leaves your skin feeling hydrated and healthy, definitely pop into your local store to test this one out!!
Again with the vitamin C. As stated above my skin is quite dull, especially when I wear no make up which makes me feel very insecure about my bare face. Only used this once so haven’t got a lot to say about it apart from it did make my skin look and feel a little less dull!
Vitamin E sleeping mask- I have never tried a sleeping mask before I know a lot of high end skin care brands sell them and they intrigue me! If moisturising before bed is good then a mask must be even better! I tried this out last night for the first time and I am so impressed. It is quite thick on your face at first and sticky (so try not to touch your face!), however I woke up this morning and my skin didn’t look as tired and dull and it usually does at 7am!
Seaweed Clay Mask- I am so excited to try this after how nice the seaweed toner felt on my face! I love a good clay mask and they tend to really help my skin, if any of you have tried this then let me know!
There we go so that is all I bought from the body shop! Let me know your favourite body shop products. Thank you for reading.
Hello! I have come to the end of my time off from work from my birthday week off :(. Todays post is going to be a clothing haul as I have just been shopping to find some bits for my holidays, and to have a mooch around! I was going to do a “What I got for my birthday” but I had mostly money so I will leave that for this year I think, anyway I will get started.
Starting off with Zara, with me I find it hard to shop in store at zara. It is always messy which drives my OCD mad and nothing looks like it goes together. However I did manage to find a lovely pair of shorts which are high waisted with a tie waist, love the tie waist trend as bottoms are usually too big on me or hard to get over my bum so I get away with a bigger size and tying the wait tight!
Jack Wills was next, usually I never buy anything from here as I feel like it’s a tad pricey but they did however have a sale section. I managed to find to lovely t-shirts the first being the white one (£14) which is a slouchy over sized T, and the pink( £19) just being a normal t-shirt.
Next was Primark, it always amazes me how you fill a basket and it comes to less than say £30 MINDBLOWN.
I decided to pick up two pairs of there cotton shorts as I live in these on holiday they are just so comfy and easy to where anywhere, they are also great for bed too!
I have a habit of not being able to walk out of Primark without Pjs, and my dad goes absolutely mental as I drift towards the pj section. However I could not leave these there, I have seen the Marie ones all over Instagram but they didn’t have them, so picked up these for my trip to Florida in two weeks!
Flip Flops, every summer I buy these they are stupidly priced at 90p and I take them on holiday and just leave them there, chose pink this year!!
Now for the random bits and bobs they put along the queues at the tills, yano them things you totally need. Mini empty containers, I wanted something to put suncream in for when we are at the disney parks save carrying a huge bottle of suncream with us, so these will come in handy! Next was a hair towel, I dry my hair far too often and I want to start looking after it a big more, so I am currently looking at hair masks (Let me know if you have faves) so got this so I keep my hair out the way while masking!
Lush!! I have been seeing everyone on instagram trying out this new “think pink” bath bomb and just had to give it a go. Haven’t used it yet but heard great reviews. Keep an eye on my Instagram for updates!
Last but not least was Pandora, I know pandora is a love or hate thing but I love it so, had a gift card off my dad and decided to get a new ring and I am so obsessed with it. I don’t think it looks like your typical pandora ring either.
Anyway thats it for my haul I really hope you enjoyed it.
