    Impulse Body Spray Fizzy Apple and Festival Fields

    Impulse Body Spray Fizzy Apple and Festival Fields Review. This post may contain Affiliate Links.   Can you believe the crazy last few months we have had?   Spending the past few months in isolation at home due to the underlying illnesses I have has been super tough but hopefully, we are starting to come out the other end of things. COVID-19 has really left its mark. I hope you guys are all keeping safe at home.   I was very kindly gifted this Fizzy Apple and Festival Fields body mist from Impulse just before the whole country shut down. As a busy mum in my thirties, I was a…

    Tropic Skincare

    *This post contains gifted items with no obligation to post and any opinions are my own Tropic skincare If you are like me you will have seen plenty of buzz around social media surrounding Tropic Skincare. I thought it simply to be another hyped up mail-order type brand with no real substance behind its advertising. Tropic Skincare stands with Cruelty-Free International, The Vegan Society and PETA as a 100% cruelty-free brand, now and always. The brand is supported by Sir Alan Sugar after Suzie Ma (tropic founder) appeared on The Apprentice. You can not only purchase directly from the Tropic shop online but you can also buy from a local…

    Babyliss Wand Curls

    Babyliss Wand Curls I have really thick blonde hair. It has always been the envy of my friends and family but to me, I have never been happy. I spent hundreds of pounds during my teenage years getting my hair permed, coloured and cut trying to find the perfect style to represent me. Alas I never did. I spent my twenties and most of my thirties not being able to manage or style my hair. This led to years of shoddy hairstyles not to mention the occasional set of bangs! And one (or two) episodes of pink hair! So that brings me to today. I have grown my hair to…

    LifewithChristine is under construction!

    LifewithChristine is under construction! I have finally taken the plunge and scrapped the terrible WordPress themes (no offence WordPress!)   I have been seriously struggling to find a theme for my blog since I removed the PIPDIG one (you can read why here)   After the scandal regarding Pipdig being able to wipe out websites using a plugin I have to admit I got totally freaked. It is super disheartening for someone like me who has invested time (and money) building their website and creating content only to hear it can all be wiped out/destroyed etc.   Therefore I have been trying out a few WordPress themes in order to…

    Josh Wood: Colour Shade Shot Gloss

    Josh Wood: Colour Shade Shot Gloss review   I have tried Josh Wood’s hair products in the past (see here).  The shampoo and conditioner are amazing and I have repurchased several times. My favourite so far has been the ‘Everything mask’ as it is such a versatile product.   Seriously if you haven’t tried it yet then put it on the top of your list!   ‘No two colours I create are ever the same, just like one’s iris or fingerprint is never genetically reproduced. That unique human essence means experimenting with tones and hues to unlock the best version of a person.’ Josh Wood   So when I saw…

    Summer Skincare Essentials

    Summer Skincare Essentials. Gosh, it seems like no time ago that summer seemed miles away and now it is only round the corner! To this end, I thought it was time that we started to talk about the summer skincare ‘essential’ products that are needed to keep your skin healthy and nourished without leaving it exposed for sun damage and harm.   I spent a few months this year in Florida and with temperatures reaching 30 degrees in the winter months I became very aware of my skin and the products I needed to use to keep it in tip-top condition. We have all seen the scary images of the…
