Day Nine and Ten – Florida Diaries

Hello everyone! I hope you have enjoyed my florida diaries and if not then this is the last one. i have combined the last two days together just because we didn’t do much at all.

DAY NINE

We woke up around 10 o’clock and went straight for breakfast, wanting to take in the last of the Florida sun we decided to jump in the pool after breakfast and chill out. After a few hours in the pool we went back to the room and packed up our cases and jumped in the shower to freshen up.

After freshening up we went to the restaurant and had some dinner, of course I had to have pizza for the last time!

After dinner we hoped on the bus to Magic kingdom, and guess what more RAIN! We had our ponchos with us and was not going to let rain ruin our evening. We got fast passes for Buzz lightyear and thunder mountain.  We got on a lot of rides this evening such as astro orbiter ( I hated every minute), again we went on the carrousel and dumbo.

With it being our last day we had to try all the foods we wanted to try churros, corn dogs and pop corn.

Come 10pm we were in a good spot ready to watch the fireworks for the last time, again tears in our eyes, the fireworks were beautiful and we didn’t want to leave!

DAY TEN – TRAVEL DAY

We were up 9 am and ready for the day, we handed our cases to the people at the desk to keep hold of, and we popped off to Disney Springs… Present shopping time, we hopped from shop to shop and bought some bits and bobs.

Hot and tired, we headed back to the hotel to wait for our transfer back to the airport.

Sanford airport is tiny, hardly no duty free nor food so killing 2 hours was a little tricky, however the time came to board the plane and we were off again!

6am we landed in Manchester after a very easy and quick 7.5 hour flight, we got back home as slept for a good 10 hours and woke up ate and then slept again… ops.

Thank you so much for reading my florida diaries.

Soap And Glory PORE REFINING MASK – review

When I saw these on Soap and Glory’s Instagram I could not resist so I was straight to boots and picked up the Pore Refining Sheet mask. Recently sheet masks are blowing up and every brand is bring out one or five different types.

I have oily skin, with blemishes and very dull skin so I am always looking for a mask that doesn’t leave my face oily!

I have to admit when I first opened the mask I was highly disappointed, it was soaking wet. I found it difficult to separate as it kept sticking and slipping out my hands, after separating the mask I popped it on my face to find it did not fit my face at all. It just didn’t fit the sides of my nose and my cheeks.

HOWEVER….

Despite the disaster so far, I wore the mask for 15 minutes like the instructions tell you. At first it tingles a little when you first apply the sheet to your face like a toner does sometimes, not uncomfortable more refreshing!  The mask has a fresh and fruity scent to it but not over powering, nor irritating to the skin!

After taking the mask off I dapped my face with a cotton pad just to get the excess product off my face.

My face 1 hour later is still soft, moisturised and my pores have reduced in size RESULT!

Would I buy this again?

YES. Really loved the result of this product, certainly the best sheet mask I have tried would recommend it over some of the other well known brands in Boots. Let me know your favourite sheet masks and thank you for reading!

The Body Shop – Vineyard Peach Collection

Hello and happy Sunday, I am writing this in the past and should of been and gone to London by now. I thought with it being Sunday I would do a very chilled out post incase any of you felt like doing some sale shopping on a Sunday evening.

The body shop this summer came out with a range called Vineyard Peach which I was all over like a rash as peach is my favourite scent ever! I have noticed at the moment the body shop have deals on the peach range in store and online so thought it would be the perfect time to share my opinion with you! The collection has all the usual shower gel, body lotion, body butter just like every other scent you can get.

I didn’t get the FULL collection mainly because I do not need it all and it will hurt my bank balance. I did however manage to pick up the following

  • Body Butter
  • Body Lotion
  • Body Spray
  • Shower Gel

First up is my favourite product that the body shop do, there body butters! I haven’t used a good body butter in ages, and have started using this one every time I have a shower and I can honestly say its fantastic! I love fake tan so I apply this to my body before I apply my tan and it goes on so evenly, so theres a top tip for all you tanners out there. I also find it stops your tan from smelling horrible and strong! As for the consistency of the butter it is lovely and thick, so maybe not for you if you have oily skin but I have normal/dry especially on my legs and arms and find this solves all problems!

Next up is the Body Mist/spray, I love this as it means if I want the scent but haven’t got time to apply creams and butters I can quickly spray and I am good to go. As for how long it lasts I would say all day, I can defiantly still smell this on my clothes and skin throughout the whole day. The only thing I don’t like is that it is in a glass bottle and I wish it was in a plastic one so I could pop in in my handbag! Overall though I do really like this product!  Now for the product I have loved the most, I have purchased my second bottle of this shower gel I loved it that much. I find with shower gels you come out the shower and cannot smell it, with this one the smell stays with you for ages which I really like, it makes you feel lovely and fresh once you have used it. the gel is quite thick so you do not need much as it goes a long way. 

Now for the last product that I own from this range, and the one I have not got much of a ‘review’ of. I think because I have been using the butter I haven’t thought about using this. However I have been using it in the mornings on my arms just to give me the peach scent. It leaves my arms feeling very soft. I like how it is not thick as it dries really quickly and feels very light. I will keep using this product and hopefully love it even more!

Well that is it for The Body Shop Vineyard Peach review, overall I have LOVED this range and hope they keep it all year round as it is such a beautiful scent. Defiantly check out the range as it was on sale last time I looked, as well as many other summer scents.

Thank you so much for reading don’t forget to follow my blog!

Love Me Beauty – July Review

Hello, happy Sunday once again! Today’s blog post is going to be what I picked in the July Edit from Love Me Beauty click here if you have no idea what Love me beauty is! 

I loved this months edit, seen a lot of hate over it but I was so obsessed this month as i love brushes, skin care and nails so it was a perfect month for me! 

Yet again brushes, there is more to the box than brushes but I just can’t leave them there as it’s great value for just £12! I picked the Retractable Face brush which is perfect for traveling ladies! The brush it’s self is so soft, perfect size too, definitely recommend eco tools! 

Oh look another brush, I have been desperate for a new foundation brush and this type is my favourite to use! I have used the brush and I can say it’s amazing especially with foundation! Loving and soft too does a great job at giving you an even finish. 

I’ve heard a lot of good things about “dragon blood” masks and serums so this was a must this month. I have terrible bags under my eyes so I really hope this sorts them out! I am yet to use it, hopefully it does something for me, if it does expect a review. 

I used to LOVE doing my own nails, I’ve recently gotten lazy and get them done every now and then. However it’s so expensive so I decided to pick up this Nails Inc polish they had around 4 colours to choose from but this was more me! It’s a gorgeous colour on the nail and dries quickly! 

Again another product I have heard a lot of good things about is the nip and fab glycolic fox daily cleansing pads, so I shall keep you updated. Tried a nip and fab exfoliater but didn’t think much but hope these work for me! 

Thank you so much for reading I am so close to 100 followers, so if you’re not following already then please click that button!

Day Three – Florida Diaries 

What’s that sun? Again I was awake 5am due to jet lag but let the adventures begin again! Headed off to breakfast around 9 again, Micky waffles it was for breakfast second day in a row ops! 

Then hopped on the bus to Animal kingdom, I was so excited for this park as I love animals, started off by going around the park and looking at the animals which was fab. Followed by going on the Kilimanjaro safari which was amazing! 

Got off the ride and refused to believe that it was rain I could feel, definitely off the trees right? WRONG. The heaviest rain I have even seen decided not to buy another poncho and shelter under the smallest shelter in the world. 

Decided to fast pass the rapids until we sat down and decided we would get back off because we were DRENCHED. So again we headed back to the hotel and of course it then brightened up. 

Didn’t want the rain to ruin our day, but didn’t want to chance another park so we hired a two seat bike and wondered around our complex which was huge! 

Hit the showers and freshened up and decided to pop to Disney Springs and have some “proper” food. Ended up in planet Hollywood which is fantastic if you ever visit! 

That was it again for that day I hope you’ve enjoyed reading took more pictures on this day so hope you enjoy them too.

Day Two – Florida Diaries 

Today was the day, first day (officially) of being in Florida. Although really jet lagged, headed to breakfast around 8:30/9 and had the famous Micky waffles that you see all over people’s Instagram. Still not over the fact Americans eat bacon with their waffles so it was chocolate syrup for me sorry. 
After breakfast it was straight on the bus to magic kingdom! One step in Disney and I automatically felt like a kid we had 2 fast passes to do so wondered around for a little found bearings and rode a few sort queue rides then it was time for Buzz’s ride (highly recommend, unless you’re competitive and it will cause arguments 😂) 
Not even stepped foot out the door and the rain hits thunder, lightning it was horrendous was I really still in Florida? Absolutely gutted so decided to grab a poncho, look very attractive and brave the rain. Unfortunately most rides closed due to the lighting found our selves on the tea cups and a very slow little mermaid ride, so decided to head back to the hotel for some dinner.

After the rain cleared up we headed to Disney Springs (food and shopping) just for a little look around after failing to find anywhere available to eat we decided to pop back to our hotel for food then venture out of Disney. 

We got dropped off at the bottom of International drive and looked around all the shopping complexes and upside down buildings (yep really). Then discovered the Orlando Eye and decided to ride it, definitely worth it to see Orlando you can see for MILES! 

Still jet lagged we called it a night, hope you enjoyed this diary entry!
