June 28, 2015 admin 1

Last week I reviewed the Vita coco coconut oil for Birds on the blog. It was by far the weirdest review I have ever done having to test it on my toast and on my legs – crazy! To read hoe I got on please follow the link http://birdsontheblog.co.uk/the-beauty-product-you-can-eat-vita-coco/ Since writing the review I have also tested it as a tooth paste on the recommendation of others and I can honestly say it was like cleaning […]

My Travel size essentials

June 20, 2015 admin 2

Last weekend I went on a girlie holiday with a couple of my friends to Palma.

My Bikini Wish list

Summer is just around the corner and like most people I have started to search for Bikinis ready for my holidays (that we are yet to book).

I always start looking for bikinis early on as I […]

This all came about when I was sent a bottle of Skin Drench make-up remover to review from spa at home and told some friends I was looking forward to trying it as […]
