    1. Dogs- Adopt, don’t buy

      I’ve always been a dog person so I have always had them from puppies. Before 2 years ago I had never even considered adopting an adult dog because of all of the possible complications and let’s face it, puppies are just really cute. So, when I found out that we were rescuing a 5 year old mini schnauzer from Spain I was sceptical. Two years on and I can’t imagine life without her.» >

      What is it?

      Callmy alert is an app that can be used by any organisation as a quick way of alerting every relevant user if there is ever an urgent or dangerous situation. Each organisation has a unique code that allow its users to sign up for all notifications from them.

      You do not receive any notifications from places that you have not signed up to. Nobody wants a load of notifications popping up on their phone all the time but don’t worry, in the 6 months that I have had this app I have had exactly one notification.» >

      Valentine’s Day Skincare Prep

      Getting ready for a Valentine’s day date is like a fun nightmare. There’s picking a cute outfit, doing your makeup and making your skin look the best it can be. Some skincare products that I’ve been trying recently are perfect for getting ready for Valentine’s day.

      In the shower, I’ve been loving the ‘Bioderma Atoderm Shower Oil’ (gifted) which costs only £10.85 –  an amazing price for 1000ml worth of product.» >

      The Sunniest Part of the UK: Gibraltar.

      Gibraltar is a stunning British Overseas Territory situated on the south coast of Spain. It’s over a thousand miles away from England, making it a spectacular tourist destination (and home) to the British.

      Home to the Barbary macaques, Gibraltar has some impressive wildlife. These apes live on top of the Rock of Gibraltar, a famous 426-meter-high limestone rock which rises out of the sea. The rock is an incredible tourist attraction.» >

      Beauty and Skincare Hacks

      1. When you’re travelling: 

      When travelling, I always feel like I forget something in my makeup bag. Usually it’s not an essential product for me, such as mascara, howeversometimes I seem to forget my favourite eyeshadow palette. If you’ve forgotten your eyeshadow palette but have remembered the brushes, you can use bronzer and highlighter as eyeshadow. Use the bronzer in your crease to add definition, colour, and depth, then use the highlighter on your eyelid to create a shimmery glow.» >
