You know the saying one size fits all but in reality one size fits nobody!

When a moisturiser claims to suit all skin types, that’s a pretty big ask right? So I was excited to try out Heaven Skincare’s Divine Cream. I tried this out with my mum who’s a different skin type to really see if we could both see the benefits. As advised we used this both in the morning and evening alongside an SPF in the day.

Packed with organic essential oils  such a witch hazel and Vitamins A, C and E, this cream is great to soothe and repair sun damaged skin aswell as increase elastin levels to leave you skin looking and feeling plumper, younger and fresher. Don’t be put of by a product that is labelled with anti-ageing, this doesn’t mean if you’re under 30 you can’t use it, it just has extra properties to assist more mature skin along the way. With a natural source of  Vitamin C, this will help to make everyone’s face radiate.

So after using this, me with my normal to dehydrated skin and my mum with a more dry to combination skin type have both seen positive results. Mum, found her skin was more balanced overall rather than being dry and then oily in different areas of her face. She also felt her skin was much softer to the touch, always a nice feeling; but thought that she would need to carrying on using the Divine cream for a few more month to see if it had any ‘plumping effect’.

I have fairly normal skin with no issues apart from the odd spot of dehydration which is purely due to not always drinking enough whilst out of the house (bad me)! I found this cream to be really nice to use, it’s quite a thin creamy texture however sinks in nicely and doesn’t settle on the top of the skin.  I am not too picky with my moisturiser as long as it doesn’t leave a greasy residue. This didn’t but did leave my skin looking fresher and brighter especially on those little dull bits from lack of sleep and water. I can’t speak for those of you who may have more problematic skin issues, however with all natural ingredients I wouldn’t hesitate is recommending the Heaven Skincare brand for you to try out. It was a big thumbs up from us both, we would definitely be happy to keep on using this cream daily.

Escape Rooms | Manchester

escape rooms manchester locked in a bow blog

 

We recently got invited to experience the escape rooms in Manchester for the evening. Having no idea what to expect and wondering if live actors would jumped out at you in the dark we headed over nervously to find out what it was all about.

We were warmly greeted and ushered over to the their cute little bar which was tucked away in a nook at the back of the building. Our first room was to be shared with some other people we hadn’t met yet, meaning more brain power but the tasks of working with strangers aswell. We headed into the ‘Science Lab’ room, a level five so it was going to be tough (we thought). We we giving a quick safety briefing and a little spiel about the room, the timer was set for sixty minutes and the offer of a starting point was given, that was it! It was up to us to solve the clues, work together, avoid wrong choices and climb through hidden walls. It was fun and challenging, we did have to ask for a clue twice but we made it and escaped through the coded door in forty two minutes before the body on the science lab gave us anymore frights. It’s quite surreal having to work against the clock and in a small dark place, it definitely adds a lot of pressure, but try to not focus on it too much and you will soon be sussing out the clues. Don’t fret if you need to get out you can straight away and there is a switch if you need assistance, we felt completely safe the whole time.  (I couldn’t quite believe we did it, I even poked my head around to the desk and asked does that mean we’re out now, yup)

After a little drink, a bit if fresh air and a chat with some of the staff me and Dave were kindly offered the chance of experiencing another room in a smaller group just the two of us. We decided on the ‘Prison Break’ room which is a level 4 difficulty. Before we had entered the room we were already handcuffed together and wondered if we would even be able to get through the first clue being so restricted (we kept it on the whole time silly, perhaps rethink that if you’re going in this room). Anyhow, we did get through the first clue and it was so much fun, we were so proud when we got this first one. This room involved lots of numbers and looking out for the obvious rather that doing what you initially are draw to when trying to escape a cell. You can have lots of fun in hour despite being locked in the dark and literally in prison with nothing but a torch and your team mate for comfort and help.

A thoroughly good experience, we eoupd definitely go back to try out the other rooms. It would be such a good work teambuilder or race if you go down with your mates into seperate rooms Just remember to think outside the box for the clues or perhaps in the box. Things maybe not be what you seem. Your maths, colours, patterns and pyshical skills will all be tested, but not in the way you might imagine.

Cryptic I know, but I can’t give you too many clues! So would you go, check out their website for a venue you.

Swimming with Dolphins  |  The Face Behind the Blog | Desk Styling

June, a total whirlwind as they say. Family birthdays, deadlines, days out and holiday memories it may have been crazy but there was lots of fun things packed in along the way. With deadlines all coming to an end June was the time to breathe a little sigh of relief and dream about a good nights sleep once my mind remembered how to stop a little.

Ocean World | Dominican Republic

The last days of April brought absolutely insane hot days and tropical storms of an evening. We decided to take a day out from the picture perfect Dominican beaches and head over to Ocean World Adventure Park in Puerto Plata.

We booked a day trip via Thomas Cook, so all we had to do was get up early ready to be picked up for a day full of fun. Ocean World is set aside a beautiful marina and casino both of which you can visit during your day.

Exams and deadlines are tough and stressful for anyone no matter what age, from school, to uni or in the workplace. Added pressure can affect people in many ways.

It is important to remember that this stress won’t last forever however hard it may seem right now. You will come out the other side and be proud of yourself for going in their and doing all you could.
