I've been trying out a bunch of new hair products this month and some I'm absolutely loving and others can go in the undecided pile, so no doubt next month there'll be a few more hair goodies but let's get over May first.

What To Expect When You're Expecting....A Puppy

If you hadn't guessed already, or you don't follow me absolutely anywhere (erm why don't you?) then you might not know that WE'RE GETTING A PUPPY! Theodore comes home to live with us on Thursday and to say we're excited would be the biggest understatement ever. We met him three weeks ago and he's the sweetest little guy. I can't wait for endless cuddles and lots of fun.

Life Lately: Cosmopolitan, Cockapoos and Catastrophising

My blog turned three earlier this month and I completely forgot all about it; I'm pretty bad with dates as it is so I'm not really surprised that I missed it. So happy blog anniversary to me! Anyway, I thought I'd write a little life update post as it has been a while.

My View on Disability was Influenced by my Nan, Here's Why

Last week I sat down with Vix Meldrew for her awesome new podcast and discussed sex and disability, relationships, women that inspire me and how we can all do better at raising the voices of marginalised groups. Go listen to my episode here. I felt like I'd known Vix forever and I am pretty much in love with her now, so yeh, pop over and let me know what you think please mates.

IPL Hair Removal At Home with SmoothSkin Bare

I have wanted to try a laser hair removal product for ages but I never have a spare two-hundred quid lying about to be able to afford it. Then SmoothSkin* got in touch and I was all about giving it a go. I had no experience of using a device like this before so was intrigued to how it would work and whether it was going to hurt; as someone with chronic pain, I wasn't about to start inflicting myself with pain all for some smooth legs. Albeit, it doesn't hurt at all. Not one bit.

Self Care Scents and 5 Spring Fragrances feat Gucci Bloom Acqua Di Fiori

*Disclaimer: This post contains PR samples

If I haven't mentioned before (I totally have, in fact I've probably written it far too many times), I am a total perfume lover. I used to have at least forty in my collection and would wear a different one each day; extra, I know. Now, I tend to gravitate towards certain notes and have a handful of favourite fragrances that I adore.

I have had various Antipodes products in my skincare routine for quite a while but over the last few months I have added more and more, and my skin is very happy about it. With that in mind, I thought I'd share a few items that you absolutely need in your life.

April Favourites

Flatlay - April calendar - Chloe Nomade perfume - L'Oreal Infallible stick foundation - Maybelline mascara - Sensse silicone cleansing brush - Antipodes skin saviour

*Disclaimer: This post contains PR samples

I feel like I was only complaining that January lasted for fifteen years a few weeks ago but we're already in May, what the hell? Unlike my one brand favourites last month (it was all Becca Cosmetics if you fancy checking it out), I tried out quite a few new products in April and I could have added quite a few others in here but I like picking five for some reason.
