About Me

My blog 🙋🏼‍♀️

Hey, welcome to my blog 💁🏼‍♀️

So, I decided to start a blog because I’m a creative person and enjoy writing on paper and online, so I thought why the heck not! 📝

I’m a 21 one year old instagram fashion, beauty & lifestyle blogger from Lincolnshire, UK 🇬🇧 I also do digital art (portraits & logos) in my spare time and as a side hustle 💰🎨

I love animals and have two dogs called Bella and Bobby, Bella is a toy poodle and Bobby is a miniture labradoodle. Bella likes to think she’s the boss and Bobby is a softie. 🐾

I’m a big supporter of cruelty free brands and products and believe that in this day and age no animals should be harmed in the creation of any product! 🚫

Why are cans better? 🤔

• Recyclability - 75% less energy is used when recycling aluminium as it is when using glass ♻️

• CO2 - Aluminium is lightweight, significantly reducing carbon emissions associated with the transport of packaging.

• Single-serve, Not committed to drinking a whole bottle

• Convenience - Glass is brittle and is often forbidden at outdoor and sporting events. It is also inconvenient to those who enjoy and outdoors and active lifestyle. Cans are a simple and convenient solution, allowing wine and beverage lovers the opportunity to enjoy a tipple, as cans are light, crushable and cant shatter.

What I’ve learnt so far

So far I’ve learnt about what to expect from the course, how to set work hours and stay organised. This will help me to remember to not be posting anytime of the day or week but to be more strategic when creating content and posting at set times. Also, how having a blog is a big YES if you’re an influencer as you’ll appeal more to brands, and some brands only work with influencers who have one, this is something I didn’t know before taking the course! As well as having an email list for your blog which is very helpful. For those that are beginners to the industry, there are also beginner mistakes that can be avoided. Even though I’m not a beginner, I still found these tips very helpful! I learnt the differences between a creator and business account, and how to make your feed stand out, as well as many mor helpful tips and tricks. (I don’t want to share too much and give too much info away!)

Giveaway
I will also be running a giveaway on my Instagram account where one lucky person will win a FREE course of their choice valued at $600! Check out the giveaway post on my Instagram on how to enter!

Budslife CBD patches 💚

I can’t wait to test out these @budslifecbduk CBD patches to see if they’ll help with my anxiety and fatigue and hopefully help me sleep better 🍁

I will be posting my progress on Instagram stories, so keep an eye out! 🤗

https://www.instagram.com/beccyxcatherine/

About the patches:

✅ Each patch contains 16mg of CBD oil infused into it.
✅They are designed to release safe & measured levels of CBD throughout the day
✅ It’s a quicker way of absorbing CBD, transdermal absorption is quicker than digestion since the CBD has to reach the stomach before it’s broken down & absorbed when it’s digested!
✅They are scentless
✅They contain 0% THC, as their lab report states

CBD patches are patches made of an adhesive, safe material that is coated in a solution, gel or oil that contains a carefully measured dose of CBD molecules. This oil also contains permeation enhancers that allow it to better penetrate the skin and carriers that make sure the body can break down the fat-soluble molecules to absorb the CBD more quickly! 💚

Smile Now teeth whitening 😁

Smile Now recently reached out to me and wanted to send me two weeks worth of their teeth whitening strips 😁

After my first use I noticed a big difference in the shade of white my teeth were, even my mum and Nan noticed! 🤯

They are:

✅Cruelty free
✅Peroxide free
✅Made in the UK

I would recommend these strips to anyone who wants to try teeth whitening, as they are easy to use, and only take 30 mins out of your day; also there’s no need for a UV device 🙌🏻

I’ve tried other whitening strips in the past, but these have been the best I’ve tried so far 😍

SK-IN products review 💄✨

SK-IN are a cruelty free and vegan brand and kindly sent me some products to review, which I got to chose; however all opinions are honest!

Here is their ethos:
‘We are SK -IN. Feel good formulas for him, her, everyone.
We believe that skin has truth and simplicity, but that simplicity should never be taken to mean ordinary.
We believe that each one of us is special, each one of us is different and yet, each one of us is the same. Skin empowers us as individuals but it also unites us.
We are SK -IN. And we are for each of us as one.’

The Matte liquid lipstick in the shade ‘honest’: I chose the palest colour because of my pale skin tone and I knew it would dry down to a darker colour anyway, and the colour was perfect; not too dark and not too light! The formula is very smooth on the lips and just glides on nicely, it’s not too drying and quite long lasting. Overall a 9/10 😇

The Duo highlighter in the shade ‘spirited’: This highlighter had a pink colour too it which I loved, as I usually go for pink or white toned highlighters. The formula did create a bit of fallout when I put my fan brush on to it, and the sparkles in it were a bit chunky. If you like that then that’s great, I didn’t mind that to be honest, as it blended out well on my skin anyway! The highlighter turns out great in flash photos too, overall an 8/10 ☺️

The fleece lined hoodie with the SK-IN logo on it:
I loved the hoodie, it’s fleece lined so great for winter! I’ve actually slept in it the last couple of nights and it keeps me so warm! It’s very well made too! overall a 10/10 😍

Bath bombs review 💣

Unicorn bomb:
This had a subtle vanilla scent and left a creamy frothy milky layer on the top of the water, it did not change the colour of the water.
8/10

Bubblegum push pop bomb:
This created a blue, yellow and pink foam on top of the water and had a bubblegum scent, it turned the bath water a dark lavender colour with a milky layer on top.
10/10

Charmed bath bomb:
It was Pink, purple and blue coloured, and turned the bath water a deep purple colour, it didn’t leave a milky froth later on top and had a fruity fragrance.
9/10

Flower pot bath bomb:
This left the water a gorgeous dark pink colour and smelt lovely, with a cute little flower on top.
9/10

My favourite bath bomb was the bubblegum push pop, because of its colours, froth, scent and push pop mechanism which was really unique! 🦄

Wax melts review 🔥

Black cherry wax melt:
This had a strong fragrance, and the scent lasted in the room for a few hours after turning the burner off. 10/10

Hotel of dreams wax melt:
It had a subtle fragrance, it wasn’t as strong as the black cherry wax melt.
8/10

It had a strong scent, nice refreshing smell, the scent stayed in the room after switching the burner off.
10/10

Spiced berries:
It had a strong scent, and I could smell it in the room after switching the burner off for a couple of hours.
8/10

My favourite wax melt scents were the black cherry and fresh linen, because of their strong scents and how long the scents lasted in my room after turning the burner off 🍒☁️
