Carex Complete Fun Edition | Review

I do a lot of baking and also spend a lot of times with animals so love an antibacterial handwash. 

Carex is the Number 1 handwash brand in the UK. I normally use the Carex Moisture Plus handwash and I love it. It leaves my hands soft plus it kills 99.9% of Bacteria.

Carex also do a Fun Edition with the most amazing scents. A lovely little parcel dropped on my door step the other day and I couldn't wait to have a sniff. 



I popped this in my bathroom along side my Moisture plus one and this one is definitely being used more. The scent is exactly what it says Bubblegum. I love bubble gum scents and it takes me back to childhood with the Hubba Bubbas and the Double Double gum. 
I do think this is suppose to be aimed at Kids but I even caught my mum using this on her visit and she commented on how yummy it smelt. 
The scent is nice and sweet without been too over powering and I have had a few children round since receiving this and I had no trouble getting them to wash their hands.  

 Carex Strawberry Laces hand Sanitizer*

I use sanitizers a lot and always have one floating around in my bag for when I'm walking the dogs or visiting the Horses. I do find them a little strong and over powering on the alcohol smell though. Carex have done a brilliant job on the scent of this. Yes you can still smell the alcohol a bit but the strawberry laces smell is definitely there and leaves your hands smelling lovely afterwards. It hasn't seemed to dry my hands out too which some tend to do to me. 

I think these are brilliant fun way for parents to teach their children the importance of Hygiene or if your just a big kid yourself. They are definitely a talking point for visitors and I think I may have to have a cheeky smell of the Cola Bottle one next time I'm shopping,

Sorry this has been a long time coming I haven't felt the best lately, but here it finally is the goodie bag Giveaway.

On the 12th of this month I co-organised the Blog Yorkshire 1st event in Leeds and we had a couple of the main Blog Yorkshire Goodie bags spare so I thought it would make a perfect giveaway.

Nanshy - Sent a blending brush in a gorgeous little pouch and the quality of their brushes for the price are amazing, 
Washi - Provided a gorgeous little parcel which is their skin polishing kit included is an body exfoliating towel a hot cloth and some of their cotton buds (not available in the UK yet). Once you try these you wont go back to normal cloths. 
Ginvera - Sent BB creams and Marvel gels. This Goodie bag contained the Marvel Gel which is one of my favourite skincare products. Its a non harsh gel exfoliater that takes off all your dead skin. 
Skinetica - What would a goodie bag be without this anti blemish super toner I have seen so many good reviews on this.
Oriflame - First time I have tried this mascara and I am really enjoying wearing it. My mum used to work for Oriflame and I not tried their products for a while so was happy with this.

Joey Essex - Volumising Powder haha look at his little head. Not tried any of this range before but love a volumising powder. 
Viridian - Coconut oil. I use this anyway so was happy when they agreed to provide this for the goodie bags so many good uses. Beauty or cooking. 
Ginger and Co - Who doesn't like a good hand cream and with a name like Dreamy Cream it must be good.

Leeds Lush Spa Part 2 | The Spa

This again is a very picture heavy post but I just couldn't stop snapping away. I visited the old Spa last year and loved the feel of it (you can see this here) so was so excited to see how this differed.

The Spa is situated underneath the shop. The first thing that caught my eye on walking down the stairs was this sign. I love the words they use to describe what you can get out of your treatment.

Like the old spa it still had the country kitchen Alice in Wonderland feel which I was so happy about as I don't know why but seeing little labeled bottle makes me smile.

I love the little snug they have done for sitting and relaxing after a treatment. The attention to detail from beginning to end is amazing.

They also now have a bath tub which looked so welcoming and cozy.

Another big change from the old spa is that they now have a double room. This is perfect for couples or for girly days out for a pamper with friends.

Well they have managed it, I didn't think they would better the old one and still make it feel as inviting and warm but they did and I cant wait to try the Comforter or the Hard Days and Night treatment.

Leeds Lush Spa - The Shop

lush

So last Thursday Lush closed the door on its store, but don't fear they opened a bigger and better one just across the road and I got to be one of the first ones to see it... Yes I was so excited!  I warn you now this post is going to be very photo heavy due to the fact I couldn't stop my finger from snapping away at all the prettiness.

I loved the old store but felt when it was busy it was a little like a conga line and you just followed the line round. Making the store bigger would be brilliant at busy times like Christmas (which is only 5 months away...what!!) 

I love how the new store entices you in by all the bright products in the window and advertises the Spa a bit more.

Now for all the beautiful pictures full of all things Lush. I am glad they have kept with the same Labelling I love the signs they have dotted around too.

Lastly I want to show you my amazing bubble bar making skills... we had the chance to make our own comforter and I have to say I'm impressed with how it turned out (smug face).



This no longer exists as I used it in 2 days with the biggest bubble baths ever!!!

So what do you think of the new shop? Have you visited yet?

Tandem Skydive With Chicago Town Pizza and Sky Dive North West | Lifestyle


Last Month I was kindly asked by Brazen Pr on behalf of Chicago Town Pizza to do a Tandem Skydive and I accepted straight away. 

Arriving at the North West Sky Diving Center I was a little scared but soon felt at ease talking to the other Bloggers that were there. The staff were really friendly too as well as the Girls from Brazen. 

After putting my gorgeous safely gear on (not!!) we made our way to the plane and I think the rest of the pics are self explanatory.
