How to become a CRAZY unicorn lady tutorial, Halloween 2017

I do apologise for this entry being extremely late, it’s just that I have been really busy recently, I just haven’t had the time to update you on my super-duper crazy life. Although Halloween feels like so long ago now, was it 6 months ago or was it 6 days ago? who knows. I thought it would be cool to share my evenings itinerary with you guys and show you what I decided to go as to the fancy dress party. As well as this, for any of my fellow unicorn lovers, here is a little tutorial on how you can achieve this fab look.

Halloween is most definitely my favourite holiday of the whole year. I absolutely love the idea of dressing up and I get so excited to see other people’s dress up ideas. I actually planned my Halloween outfit way back in August just because I was that excited this year. For anyone who knows me well will know how OBSESSED I am with unicorns so I combined the two and that’s where I got my idea for this year. I understand Halloween is meant to be scary and unicorns are most probably the least scary thing but I had a great time and that’s all that matters.

Want to achieve this look?

The look I went for this year was not a full fancy-dress outfit, it was just simple and pretty. In my opinion, it was a little pricey once you added it all together and looking back now, it probably could have been achieved a lot cheaper. The way I see it is if the items purchased can be reused for many different occasions then you’re not losing out on much. I can reuse the dress for parties and the glitter will always come in handy for events and festivals in the future. The best thing about my costume was the fact it was so easy to achieve, it took no more than 2 hours to put all together.

You would not need all of the above in order to achieve this Unicorn styled look however, this is what I purchased. There are many cheaper and more expensive alternatives for many of the items I used above, you’ve just got to do a little research beforehand.

I ended up spending my evening at the Universities union with a dead bride, Chucky and Negan from The Walking Dead. Unfortunately, I did not win the £100 fancy dress prize but it’s the participation that counts, right? After this, my friends and I headed into Manchester City Centre and ended up partying the night away in the Gay Village. It was one of the best nights I’ve had in a long time and I already cannot wait for next year. If you have not been to the Gay Village before you have to try it out. It’s simply just a long strip of bars and clubs and they simply play the BEST music ever.

I’m not going to lie, I simply had an absolutely fantastic time being a Unicorn this year and I really hope you enjoyed the look I achieved. Let me know if you decide to use any of my tips and tricks to becoming a Unicorn yourself.

Wowcher Spa Day Review | Great Gift Idea For Your Loved Ones 

Coming up with gift ideas for my friends and family has always been one of  the most hardest decisions I have to make. I’m not the type of girl who likes to grab the nearest bottle of wine on the shelf and hopes for the best, I like to put in a lot of time and effort with my presents. Birthdays are really special to me as I believe everyone deserves one day to be treated and made feel god damn special. This year I believe I did an absolutely amazing job with my gifts and I thought I’d share one which I was very happy and impressed with.

Not too long ago was my dear mothers birthday and as she had been working crazy hard at work recently I decided to treat her to a beautiful spa day. I purchased a package directly off wowcher which included afternoon tea & two treatments, as well as all day access to the spa and gym facilities.  As we got a choice,  the two treatments we decided to choose were a 40 minute full neck, shoulder and back massage and a 20 minute facial scrub which was absolutely amazing. Although they weren’t for too long they were just long enough for me and the masseuses were very well trained so I felt great afterwards. Many of the packages on wowcher offer similar but different services depending on what type of relaxation you are after, it’s always worth having a little scroll through before purchasing the first one you see. We decided to go with the £99 package for two people at the Bannatyne Health Club And Spa in Ashford, Kent.


                                                      My mother and I relaxing by the pool.

We arrived there for 10 o’clock in the morning and spent the first few hours relaxing and making the most of the spa facilities.  I decided to start the day with swimming a few lengths in the pool as I thought if I worked out first I would really benefit from the massage afterwards. I don’t swim often but when I do I really enjoy it and always feel really great afterwards. After swimming my mother and I decided to use the steam room and sauna. I personally don’t really enjoy the saunas just because I get very claustrophobic although I think the steam rooms are great. I loved this because I have very oily skin and I am prone to getting achne however the sauna helped lots and made my skin feel cleansed. 

After a few hours relaxing by the pool we headed to our afternoon tea session. Neither of us had ever had afternoon tea before so we wasn’t too sure what to expect but nevertheless we were thrilled with the outcome. The afternoon tea was simple and basic but It was everything we needed to fill up the hole in our stomachs comfortably. For anyone who knows me well you’ll know how much I love my tea so this was my idea of perfect. 


After lunch we headed to the relaxation room to allow our body some time to digest the amount of cakes we had just stuffed down out throat. The great thing about this place is they don’t rush you around which I thought they would. There was no plan to your day and you were free to spend it however you wanted. 2pm soon came round and we headed off to start our pamper session.  The ladies were very welcoming and explained the process as they took us through to the room. Once we arrived they gave us five minutes alone  to get our clothing off and get comfy on the massage table for when they came back in. They started with the neck, shoulder and back massage followed by the facial scrub at the end and I can safely say that was the best hour of my life.

It was a fantastic day that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a gift idea for their loved ones. If you love to be pampered and smothered with lots of yummy treats this would definitely be the day for you.  I was very happy with the service I received at the Bannatyne Health Club in Ashord and will definitely be returning in the future for a simple yet satisfying day time treat. 

My first LUSH experience! (bath bomb haul)

After my bad day the other day I decided to treat myself to some beautiful Lush bath bombs and I do not regret this one single bit. I have never purchased anything from lush before however have heard such good things I decided it was time to lose my Lush virginity. As I was so excited to try my new purchases I have had 3 baths in the last three days and tried a different bomb each night. Due to this being my first time I thought I would share my experience with you guys and I really hope you enjoy.

Whether you are like me and have never tried lush before or you are a serial expert on their products, I thought this would be a nice little post to share. You are more than welcome to let me know if I made the right choices or if there are many other bath bombs you highly recommend for me to try next time as I was so excited and will definitely be returning again.

The first evening I decided to try both a bath bomb and one of the bubble bars. This was by far my favourite out of all three evenings. In this tub I started off with the beautiful Unicorn horn bubble bar, not only did this smell absolutely gorgeous but was so pretty as well. As you can see in this picture below it was so colourful and glittery which is my favourite kind of thing and anybody who knows me well knows how obsessed I am with anything unicorn related.16325489_10210865248734646_23954337_o

In this tub I also decided to use the Lush rose bombshell (Which you can see in the picture below). This one surprised me a lot as I didn’t expect it to be as pretty as it was, Not only did it turn the bath water a lovely shade of pale pink but also smelt divine. My favourite part of this bath bomb was once it had fully dissolved it had real rose petals in the middle which floated on the surface of the water which in my eyes is beautiful. What a way to relax.

The second evening was like a magic trip to space, this bath bomb really reminded me of a galaxy far away which had the most beautiful aliens ever to exist in it. This bath bomb is called Intergalactic. If you are looking for a bath bomb which is very visual and will brighten up your bath time experience this is definitely the one for you. There aren’t much words to explain this experience so I’m just going to leave you with the fabulous pictures I took. What a beauty hey!

 

Then last but not least we are left with evening number 3 and this was the bath bomb named Frozen. The main reason as I decided to purchase this blue beauty was because I am a massive Disney fan, I don’t actually know if it has anything to do with the film Frozen but due to the name it kind of caught my eye and I’m so glad that it did. This bath bomb smelled absolutely lovely, It has a very fresh scent to it and it makes your skin feel so soft. I really couldn’t fault it in any way.

So to sum up my lush experience I am very impressed and very satisfied with the products I tried in the last few days and I will definitely be returning to try more. If anyone has a reccomendations of bath bombs they have tried in the past I would love to hear about them and would love to try them out. Let me know what you think!
