Lush: Sleepy Body Lotion – Does it actually help you sleep?

Lush’s ‘Sleepy’ Body Lotion is the product being hailed by the internet as the magic potion for a better nights sleep…but does it actually work? Or has it been massively hyped up?

Although I don’t struggle with drifting off, a full, deep sleep is rare – so if I can find something to give me a few more blissful zzz’s, I’ll take it!

My Top 5 Picks for Eating out in Vilamoura

If follow my Twitter or Instagram stories, you might have seen that I was recently sunning myself over in Vilamoura.  With flights starting this Summer from Aberdeen, it will no doubt be a top holiday destination for many in the North East, so I thought I’d pop down my ‘Top Picks for Eating Out’ from the trip – as if you’re anything like me, food and drink play a MASSIVE part of a holiday!

Although the restaurants on the Marina provide diners with great views, we found that due to the mass number of people dining, the waiters could be a little stretched – and the prices were definitely on the hefty side.

After a bit of research/scrolling through Trip Advisor, we found some great hidden gems that we would never have stumbled across on our nightly walk for food and although they don’t quite have the same scenic settings, I highly recommend the food and service – which more than compensate.

Healthy Lifestyle Changes – Food for Fitness – 30 Day Fat Loss Challenge

So January is here again and yet again I found myself over indulging during the festive period (will I ever learn?! 🙈).  This year is a big one for me and with a wedding in December, I want to start making some healthy lifestyle changes – so that I can avoid a last minute crash diet, but still look my best come The Big Day 👰🏼

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you might remember that last year I signed up to Results with Lucy, which was good (you can read more HERE) however there were points where I felt a real lack of food made it difficult to keep it going on a long term basis.

With this in mind, I was slightly dubious about signing up to another ‘meal plan’, but after receiving an email from Food for Fitness inviting me to join their first 30 day fat loss challenge, it drew me in…

Lucy Bee’s Intensive Hair Mask


As a lover of homemade beauty treatments, when I saw Lucy Bee had released a book containing 50 of her top natural beauty recipes, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.

Broken down into separate sections containing recipes for  Hair, Beauty and Skin, the book ranges from various masks, lotions and even smoothies & energy bites to help give your body that natural boost.

Linton & Mac’s 1st Birthday Bash

It’s been a big year for Linton & Mac, who within the past 12 months have become Aberdeen’s go to place for hair, makeup & nails and a won host of industry and business awards – including Best Business in Scotland at the Scottish Business Awards held in Edinburgh last week (28th August 2016).

Since launching last year (September 2015), the original team of 10 has more than doubled in size and the salon now employs 25 members of staff, adding to the skills and services the salon can offer.


After sending out an open invite on social media to all customers and friends of the Salon, Linton & Mac’s 1st Birthday Bash had all the elements of an event not to be missed.  With  Proper Corn, Porters Gin and Fierce beer kitting out the party, my friend and I headed along on Saturday to join in on the fun!
