C'est La Vie to Ooops Moments

Hello lovelies,

Every heard the saying 'I laughed so hard I peed my pants' well as with most of lifes little phrases it's more true than we think.

Whether you've had children or not, 1 in 3 ladies will experience slight bladder weakness and that's why I love the new Lights by Tena campaign!

C'est La Vie to Ooops Moments!



The beauty of this message is it's showing that this is not something to be ashamed about or that it only happens 'old' people. 

As we've evolved and embraced our periods, let's also unite and embrace the other little things that happen in life along the way.

Lights by Tena are discreet, compact and fit perfectly in your bag. For all life's little emergencies it's best to be prepared so don't forget your life essentials!



Tear in your outfit? Pop a mini sewing kit into your bag and you'll have that sorted quicker than Stella McCartney during London fashion week!

                              


Nipple playing peek a boo with your top whilst your skirt auditions for the next Marilyn Monroe photo op? 
Double sided fashion tape will keep those flirts hidden whilst a spritz of anti-static spray will keep your pink bits covered ;)



Over eager lunch date ruined your lippie? Keep a pack of wipes handy! That delicious burrito won't ruin your pout (admit it! You thought I was going to say snogging didn't you? Lol)



Pelvic floor muscles feeling the strain? Keep some Lights by Tena in your bag and bob's your uncle the day is saved!



These life savers are more absortant plus feature the unique FeelFresh Tecnology which controls odour whilst keeping you dry and feeling fab!

The point I'm making is that we women live a fast paced lifestyle and worrying of every little Ooops moment will get pretty boring.

Laugh at the funny stuff, cry at the sad, love wholeheartedly and C'est la vie to Ooooos moments :)

Much Love,

Let's Detox!

Hey guys,

It's been a while!! Now for a catch up on life! Lol

I'm back on the ole diet! I started a detox of the 1st July to kick start my system and flush out all the nasties. I'm going to have two shakes a day and a healthy meal and see how I get on.



So far withdrawal is kicking my arse! I'm on day 2 and my body is fighting the change but I expected that so I'm persevering :)

I'm thinking of doing weekly vlogs as I go a long, I can't say I live the most exciting life but I figured I can try it out and see how I get on :)

So I'm going to go enjoy my chicken salad and drink plenty of water with a few mugs of green tea to add some pizazz ;) 


Much Love,

Bex X

#NWmeet: My first event

Hey guys,

Today's post is all about the NWmeet blogger event I attended in Liverpool at the end of April. This event was set up by the fabulous Katy from thelilacscrapbook.com with proceeds going towards Mind.



Now for those who know me, you'll know that going to new places and "socialising" with humans does make me slightly nervous, OK a lot nervous. It's more to do with driving to new places, the anxiety of finding somewhere to park (please tell me I'm not the only one who worries over parking?) and the initial 'will they like me?' etc etc



So on that surprisingly nice day (looked like rain but Liverpool was sunny) I set off on my road trip. On arriving in Liverpool I met up with the lovely Danielle and Emma who were my guides to ameriesko an American-esque coffee bar. 



The event was in the downstairs meeting room and was set up with comfy chairs, tables and around the room Katy had set up the raffle prizes and some drinks.


I was excited to meet some of my favourite people (Katy, Jemma, Olivia and Caitlin) to meeting new friends (Lydia, Laren, Tamzin, Rachel, Danielle and Emma) and some I really wish I'd chatted to in person as we've become friends on Twitter (I'd like to think lol) Sarah I'm looking at you ;)

It was really nice to put faces and Twitter names to all the people I've followed and have a conversation with some really lovely ladies.

After some time having a good old gab and butting into everyone's conversations with 'Hi I'm Bex' lol. Katy then got up to welcome everyone and talk about the raffle and that a lady from Weleda will be doing a demonstration soon.



The weleda talk was very informative and I'm very intrigued by skin food as a primer. So watch this space!



Sadly the day had to end and we were given a huge goodie bag which as you can see from my pictures was full of some fabulous products! The brands were very generous :)



Oh I was also lucky enough to win a raffle prize which is this cute necklace from Beetle Cherry made by the talented Claire Munday and I love how some of the proceeds go towards helping animals in the wild. You can check the website out here.

                            

Oh I've also made an unboxing video which you can watch here :)

I had a fabulous time and I'd like to thank Katy for all her hard work and to the brands for being so generous! 

Much Love,

Bex X

Writers Block Sucks!


Hello internet people!

As you can no doubt tell from the title, I'm currently navigating my way through the mind numbingly frustrating concept of writers block!

Gah just saying it pisses me off! I have so many products to share and updates yet everytime I go to type?

Zilch! Zip! Nada!

I had the idea that facing my blog dilemma would kickstart the ole thought process and get me back on my game, so far nothing but I live in hope! 

Brain don't fail me now! 

So this is me, saying I'm shit and praying I get a clue soooooon!

Much Love,

Bex x
