DIY 3-Ingredient Peppermint Tea Scrub

I've been at the old, DIY again, rustling up another super quick and easy body scrub. Last time it was a Vanilla/Cinnamon scrub. This time I opted for something a little different. I didn't have many 'scrub ingredients' in my kitchen cupboards so I kept it simple with sugar, coconut oil and peppermint tea bags. 

I was SO pleased with the results... especially as it took me only five minutes to throw together!

Life Through A Lens #7

Holy poo balls. How is it the second of July already!? My head has been firmly in the clouds this week and so unsurprisingly, I forgot to post June's Life Through A Lens post. Many apologies and slaps on the wrist... mine, not yours. Are we cool?

The sun seems to have reared its head in Finland and as a result, all I want to do is sit outside in clothes that reveal too much skin and guzzle Pimms. Now, if only there was I way I could blog about this every day... Whilst I ponder that thought, I shall leave you with June's snaps. Here's to hoping it was a good month for you all!

On Wednesdays We Wear Fur

It's Hump Day and what better way to cheer yourself up than with pictures of cute, furry animals. Don't ever say I'm not good to you! 

Hamish behaved considerably better than she did on her last photo shoot - she even played up to the camera a little but I did have to bribe her with cucumber. Ralph was his usual, carefree self... I think the photo of him sticking his little tongue out is my most favourite, ever!

The Max Factor Blush That Everyone Loves

Okay guys, I'm a little late to the party with this one so feel free to roll your eyes at yet another Max Factor Creme Puff Blush review.  I've had these sitting in my stash for a few weeks, after picking them up in Helsinki, so I felt it was about time I shared my thoughts on them with you. 

They have been raved about by every blusher brush wielding, make up fiend - but are they really worth the hype?

This is going to be a grumbly, old-person type rant so if you're young and don't immediately say, 'god, the music is so loud in here' any time you walk into a shop, you're not welcome. 

Okay, you're still welcome but please bear in mind that after reaching 25, and the subsequent years after that, you're entitled to an age-related bitch now and again. See it as kind of a payback for grey hairs and a 'tiredness' that makes stumbling out of a club at 4am a very long and distant memory. Although, I have been known to stay out late on occasion, but this had always been under the agreement that a pepperoni pizza and cheesy chip feast awaits my poor, drunken, almost-thirty soul.
