I've been super excited for this post as this is honestly not only my favourite make up brand but also my favourite product from PHB.

"PHB Ethical Beauty is a pioneering British family business with a revolutionary range of award winning ethical beauty products."  

They sell natural, vegan, cruelty free & halal Certified beauty products. Their skin, hair & bodycare products are handmade in the UK and DO NOT test on animals. They are also palm oil free!

The powder itself is available in 6 shades, I go for the medium although I should probably get the light one but I like a bit of a tan on the face haha!

The best thing about this stuff is the fact it has SPF 30, I don't think prior to finding this I had seen a powder with SPF and I am a major worry wart when it comes to skin damage caused by the sun so this stuff is perfect for me...

The coverage is the best I've ever seen with a powder, I think this stuff would put a lot of full coverage liquid foundation to shame! I tend to wear it over my bb cream (also SPF of course) day to day but also on it's own if I'm in a rush, just want a bit of coverage or simply don't fancy slapping anything liquid and slimy on.

Another thing I realised is it lasts forever, I've only replaced mine once in a year... I know that sounds a bit mental but I'm serious!! The one I was using before from a different brand I was having to replace literally every 6 weeks or so... this one is cheaper and better :-P

I know this post sounds very salesy haha but I promise these are my honest opinions! The stuff is just so good, I have got my best friend using it too if you need confirmation ;-)

I would recommend this product to anyone to be honest, there isn't a skin type that wouldn't love this... It has SPF, it's all natural ingredients, amazing coverage and you get your moneys worth with how long it lasts!!

Late last year I (when I say "I" I mean my boyfriend) put up a wall mural in our bedroom, a wall mural is basically wallpaper if you're like me and didn't know that before.

The mural itself is from Photowall, they are "a Swedish company with a passion for design and quality. Their wall murals and canvas prints are environmentally friendly, fire-retardant in accordance with Swedish standards and do not fade in sunlight. All motifs are selected with care."

As you can see from the photos the murals are pretty damn cool, I went with the image "In November Light". I've always liked the idea of making the bedroom forest themed because I just love walks through the woods and being in the great outdoors but there are 100's of images to chose from, it was a tough decision!

This has made me question the difference between a forest and the woods...some googling for after this post perhaps?

Anyway so it's all explained on their website but you measure up and enter the dimensions on the image you want and order it, that's about it really but if you don't have the equipment at home don't forget to order the little pack they provide!

And if you're like me and forget the paste...don't haha!

The mural itself comes nice and compact in one big roll where each strip numbered so you just cut off the strips, paste the wall and chuck it on the wall...in order of course... 

Simples!? Haha don't worry full instructions are provided!

I don't think I could have done this by myself purely because of the size of the strips and i'm quite short, but it was still pretty easy enough, the only thing me and my other half found tricky was lining up each strip but just take your time and it'll be fine.

Now the mural is up I love it, absolutely love it! It's now the stand out room in the house and it just makes it feel so cosy, I was worried it might make the room a little darker or feel small but it doesn't at all, it just looks amazing.

The only thing I do want to point out which isn't really a negative point but still worth mentioning is the quality of the image didn't seem that great when up close on the roll and I was worried it wouldn't look that good but thankfully when it was up and all together it looks great! So if you get one of these ad think this, don't worry, it'll look fine!

New Year! New me!!


Happy New Year to all 2 of my readers’ haha! I want to share with you my 2017 in photos.

I've been on some amazing holidays and day trips, I've ran loads of events including my first half marathon! I have also had some shitty times like losing both my bunnies Misty and Marley, this was probably my all time low of the year!

But with this happening I've been blessed with a lovely little lady bun called Bella who I rescued from a local rescue who I now volunteer for.

After losing Misty and Marley I had a bit of a mid life crisis and got my first tattoo and since that one I have had another 3. 

Recently I have started yoga, registered as a blood donor and gave my first pint, so loads happened this year! And obviously I can't forget that it was last year in Feb I went vegan! 

So even though I don't really believe in New Year’s resolutions, I’m more of a "if you want to do it just do it kind of person" I do have some things I want to improve on...such as posting to my blog more often lol!

I also want to stick at yoga and really progress with it! I am looking forward to posting again in a year and telling you how much I’ve improved!

I also want to read more and drink more water! Very simple things but things I suck at sticking too!

So here is my 2017 in pictures....
