For ages now I've scrolled through Pinterest looking at variations of cute gallery walls; quotes, skulls, random prints. And then on Etsy; I think I have a slight addiction. Anyway, when we got the keys to our bungalow, I instantly envisioned my epic living room gallery wall and couldn't wait to get it up.
My February favourites consisted of all things Stila, including the Aqua Glow Watercolour blush in Water Lily, but I thought I'd give a more in-depth review since I'm absolutely obsessed with the two colours I have.
I luckily won £300 worth of Stila goodies from Beauty Bay a few months ago and got to try some products that I'd wanted to test out for a while, the blushers being one of them.
As most of you know, my boyfriend and I recently moved into our own bungalow. All the furniture and boring, kitchen appliances have been purchased, so I can finally be let loose, and buy all the cute cushions, art prints and accessories. However, I couldn't resist having a sneak peek here at furniture.
First off let me applaud the Tories for completely screwing over the most vulnerable people in the UK. I mean, who needs money to live on nowadays anyway? And to be honest, I'm still waiting for that money tree to sprout in the garden, and obviously it'll bud magical leaves that will cure my incurable disability. One can hope, Mr Cameron, one can hope.
I'm writing this post in collaboration with a fellow disabled blogger, Marfan sufferer, and friend, Shona from Shona Louise. Her post contains facts, figures and just how concerned she is over the recent Budget. Go and check it out here.
In August last year, I spent three weeks in hospital undergoing a Pain Management and Rehabilitation programme at Stanmore hospital, you can read all about it here. During that time, I saw my physiotherapist and occupational therapist daily, and was taught how important physiotherapy is to help me manage my chronic pain.
Anastasia Beverly Hills is pretty much the queen of brow products, so when the Brow Definer was released, I immediately added it to my basket and pretty much lived on my doorstep until it was delivered, (okay, slight exaggeration, but it was highly anticipated). I've got both the Dip Brow Pomade and Brow Wiz, so testing this out was a must.
Last week I wrote about Why Having a Chronic Illness Sucks, so this week I thought I'd put a more positive spin on things and list (yes, I love a list) a few things that aren't so bad about living with a chronic condition.
As a Spoonie, heat therapy is my best friend. There's nothing better than being out in the
cold for a few hours, feeling the chill in your bones and wrapping up in bed
with a hot water bottle to soothe the aches. My problem with hot water bottles
is, I can't lift a full kettle and I can't be trusted pouring hot water, my
wrists are really weak so I always rely on someone else to prepare the hot
water bottle for me.
If you know me, you know how obsessed I am with all things Stila. I'm constantly recommending a variety of products to anyone that will listen, and in January I felt like I used these products almost daily.
