I would have had no idea my eyes were overdue a test if it wasn't for Specsavers getting in touch to remind me... and then again to refresh that memory when I still hadn't booked in....!! Considering how long I spend sitting in front of a computer ( and my passion for specatular frames) you would think checking my eyes were in tip top health would be my top priority but with everything going on I just kept putting off getting it booked. It took an AMAZING event with Specsavers to get me giddy again for sorting myself out. The whole evening was wonderfully organised and not only had really amazing wall to wall frames on show (and the absolutely best buffet a blogger could ask) but it was also all nestled into the fab surroundings of the Bo Concept store.

I am almost ready to get moved into the house, there is lots to be done but fingers crossed come Christmas I will at least be sleeping under that roof! There are so many bits and bobs to think about that my brain is fully fried but if there is one thing I can count on now is that it will at least the new place will smell lovely and welcoming thanks to a lovely treat from Skye Candles.
I have bought so many of their products in the past as gifts for other people so I was delighted to have one just for me this time around. I never used to be particularly interested into scented candles but when I got my flat a few years ago I realised how big a difference they can make in creating an atmosphere. Now everyone might be going Hygge crazy right now, but I think we have always been pretty good at it here in Scotland thanks to our abysmal weather, and Skye Candles have the most gorgeous array of scents and sizes on offer.

Lets journey back to a simpler, less stressful time shall we? back when I had only just decided to flog my flat and buy a home that needs a huge overhaul and when my life wasn't a sea of tiny but impactful decisions daily. My skin was fresher, I bothered with some actual grooming and was blissfully whiling away my time catching up on blogs and actually seeing pals- heaven!! Back to the here and now and I am still living in between places ( thanks to a super generous cousin letting us crash) and I am so over having none of my things around me and that includes my stash of skincare to trial and my usual products too. Safe to say my skin has taken quite the hit in this time and it was really bothering me, lucky for me back when i started out on this journey I had met up with the unbelievably fabulous Laura from Diecem skincare to chat all about the launches the associated brands had coming up. Now Diecem might not quite ring bells with you right away but no doubt you have heard of Niod, Hylamide and the most recent line which has caused a HUGE buzz, The Ordinary.

I love finding a new product that was born here in Scotland and not only makes my life so much easier but actually in turn does something for a much greater cause.
Wee Pal is an chic new portable charger for your devices which comes with a side of amazing from the team at Poweralife.com. Started by two Glasgow University students who were studying Sustainable Development in Africa, they realised a buy one,give one model could bring real change in the areas they had visited and that’s when the Wee Pal Charger was born! For every Wee Pal purchased they then give a solar light to a school child in Africa which is a such a beautiful idea.

Do you know in the whirlwind that was the last few weeks of organising selling my flat and purchasing a house, all normal functions of maintenance and hair removal went right out the window. It is funny how routine disappears and then before you know it, you finally take 5 minutes in front of a well-lit mirror and you realise you are all over the shop. This is exactly what happened to me at the weekend, without even realising I hadn’t kept my eyebrows in check, my underarms were not exactly fresh and my legs had NO chance of being kept in order. essentially I was a bit of a hot mess.
