Let’s Have A Catch Up!

Let’s Have A Catch Up!

5760351122360447746-account_id=5

Oh Aye up! How are we all? Thought it’s about time we had a catch up don’t you?

My saturday consisted of eating this gigantic whopper of a burger! I mean I did try to finish it but have you seen the size of that thing? err can we also talk about how appealing it looks thou! who wants a bit?

So where do we even begin? I think the last time we had a good natter was.. I’m actually not sure it was such a while back! wow how time flies ay. If you didn’t know already then how do you not already know?! we are engaged! you can check out that blog right here https://trevnjess.com/2017/04/18/something-happened-on-our-hike/ 

So (moi) Jess was only allowed to visit the USA for 3 months which was (Jan – April) this year and during that time we got engaged where after we filed a petition so that we could then start the k-1 visa. 

At the moment it’s a long waiting game to get an approval of the petition which can take anything from 3-5 months, once it get’s approved medical examinations and embassy meetings begin. 

I’m not gonna lie.. it’s tough being away from each other, not being able to see each other every day is heartbreaking. Seeing others move on to get their own houses and start a proper little family etc when we have to wait for an approval is so tough.. But saying that we are being the strongest we can be right now.. that’s all we can do right? getting upset will not speed the process up any quicker and there is nothing we can do, so we just have to be positive and keep being strong. Obviously we get the down days where we need one another, just a comfort to make you feel good again.. but we know that every day is a day closer. I actually have this calendar where I cross of the date at the end of every day haha.

So since being back in the UK (moi) Jess has gone back to work for a short time and Trevor stayed in Michigan and has just recently started his new job (Better hours.. better sleep) yes, no more dreaded night shift, I think he’s definitely appreciating the new sleep routine! And of course as well as this Trevor is working on his online graphic clothing business which if you haven’t already checked out them funny “donut even try!” hoodies.. then you should probably check them out now.. https://frithapparel.com/ I honestly get the urge to eat the donut of the hoodie.. Let me know if you got that urge to? I May just have to persuade him to get me either the “Hug dealer” or “I’d like you if you were pizza” hoodie.. maybe both? haha we’ll see. 

So as you can tell.. everything has been a little bit busy at the moment moving back home and settling back in, it’s not been easy for both of us.. still isn’t now but we gotta do what we gotta do for now, only way is up my friends! we are both so excited for the future! In fact something positive recently has been talking about the wedding and planning that a little bit more!.. sorry, no revealing any secrets yet guys hehe.. you’ll have to wait just a bit longer. 

We would love to know how all of our readers are, anyone going through the same sort of adventure right now? Let us know in the comments below! 🙂 

Loved having this little catch up.. there is something about writing things down on the computer or notebook that suddenly makes everything look a lot more sense in your head, is that just me? haha.

Simple Mother’s Day Gifts To Make

Simple Mother’s Day Gifts To Make

IMG_7056ed

So Mother’s day is approaching in the USA and you’re on a budget? I get it, well I’m going to show you today that there are some really simple, easy, painless, straightforward and diverse ideas that you can create in your very own home.

Let’s start with mason jars, they are totally in trend right now and they really portray a vintage vibe. I had one in my bedroom not really doing much but sitting there all pretty for decoration staring right at me, what could I do with something like that? well look no further, pick up that jar and fill it with anything you can find, for me I went straight to the shredder and filled it with some shredded paper at the bottom for like a base as such and then you can simply place anything you find lying around the house that hasn’t been opened which could potentially be a gift, or it doesn’t even have to be a gift, here I’ve filled my jar with some nail varnishes and will call it “Manicure in a jar” your mum will love these little pamper treats, fill it with some of her favorite colors so she has a choice to choose from, choice is always good! 

IMG_7037ed    IMG_7038

Or if you do not have a mason jar at home look around for what you could have? I also found a china dish in my bedroom which was empty, perfect for filling and using as a gift! Below are a few pictures of how I have put together a little gift set involving the china dish, I found these things around my home.

It’s time to wind down in the evening! Cosy socks are a MUST!

Time for the evening pedicure!

Moisturizer pamper evening! 

So there you have it many ideas on how to simply create a mother’s day gift from home, get creative and let me know if you’ve made anything similar! If you don’t already know, pinterest has many ideas from creating candles to baking flower cupcakes, bath salts, handcrafted flower bouquets, soaps, salt dough bowls, bath bombs, light bulb flower vases, sugar scrubs and it could even be something simple as making your mum some breakfast in bed. You name it, pinterest has every idea so more inspiration go and take a look on there!

Olivia Olivia Olivia Burton :)

Hi Guys! 🙂

It’s Monday and officially May! So happy Monday May haha! Do not ask me where the last 4 months have gone because they have certainly flown by that’s for sure.

Another exciting blog today! Catchy title huh? kinda like a repetition song! Anyone have a clue about what today’s blog is about by the title? Anyone know who Olivia Burton is? well say no more friends scroll down and find out below!

So another day older.. my birthday (Jess) falls on St George’s Day (23rd April) which was last weekend, I’m now 22 yay haha and as a present from my parents I received a watch from Olivia Burton and it is absolutely beautiful I’m completely in love with it! I’ve been looking at the Olivia Burton watches for a while now looking in Topshop and on their online store and also whilst in the USA with a recent trip to Minnesota with Trevor where we saw some that were beautifully laid out in Nordstrom. So it was a very hard decision of which one I wanted especially with so much great choice on their website. Take a look here – http://www.oliviaburton.com/ –

But I finally decided on what watch I wanted so take a look below! 🙂

I love it! In fact I don’t think there has been one time since I got it that I haven’t worn it out yet!

I just love the chalk pastel blue color and the fact it has a lovely silver edging case around the watch which was something I did want so that it was able to go well with all of my other jewelry and this watch does just the job. To purchase this watch click here – http://www.oliviaburton.com/timeless-c34/timeless-chalk-blue-silver-p719 –

2 Must Have Products For April!

2 Must Have Products For April!

Hi Guys! 🙂

Can we just start by saying a very big thank you to everyone who recently liked and congratulated us on our engagement post! we are super excited.

So how is everyone? comment below how you all are, we absolutely love getting to know our followers, it’s like a little blogging family! Let’s get to know one another!

So yes we are back with another blog and yes we have an exciting one! We can’t wait to share with you all this month what two products we have brought from the shop that have really stood out for us! So without any more talking scroll down to see what they are and why! 

IMG_6863     IMG_6868

So I recently bought this dream cushion sponge foundation from maybelline in walmart for $12.98 and I am absolutely loving it! So far it has lasted me a good amount of time and I will definitely be purchasing this again. At first I was unsure on what color shade to get so I went for 20 as it didn’t seem to bad in the store, the color is nice once applied to my skin but I think I may try a lighter shade for my skin tone next time. For me I preferred using either a foundation brush or a makeup sponge blender as I thought the small pad applicator is a little too small for applying foundation to your face. However saying this, the dream cushion foundation is perfect for putting in your bag whilst on the go and it comes with a good-sized mirror. Overall it is a great product for a great price! so go get it girls!

Trevor recently brought this Clearasil daily face wash from Walmart for $6.97  which is not a bad price, he is loving it and leaves you feeling really clean and fresh. It gives you a really good foam and lathers up well which means he can use less and that it can last longer. He loves the fact that you do not get a strange smell like some facial washes out there. As well as this it doesn’t dry your face out and leaves you clean and ready for the day.


And there you have it friends! two of our favorite most used products that we are loving this April! Give them a go and let us know what you thought of them to.

Something Happened on our Hike…

It’s time for another blog friends.. a very exciting blog actually that we are so excited to share with you guys! So let us explain to you what happened on our very cold, windy, snowy, slippery, couple trips up and down hike, sound interesting? Read more below friends.

Myself and Trevor had planned to take a hike up one of the mountains locally to us, as the views up the top of the mountain are definitely worth the hike. Before we set off on our hike we had stopped off at Walmart to buy a SD card in Trevor’s new 4K Ultra HD mini camera, after we got that we set off to the mountain, as we began our hike we took the difficult route up, I myself was wearing Nike trainers and Trevor was wearing some boots, my nike trainers were super slippery on the snow as they do not have much grip to them (note to you all – wear suitable shoes during a hike with snow on the ground). 

Just as we are about to reach the very top of the mountain Trevor remembered we had left the camera in the car.. (whole point of going to Walmart first was to get the SD card ready to take some pictures at the top) so off we go back down the mountain to get back to the car to get the camera. On the way down my shoes took a turn for the worst haha and I actually slipped down one set of stairs, embarrassing.. I mean no one saw apart from Trevor standing behind me, still I always think it could have been worse, anyway I was fine and couldn’t wait to reach the bottom to get this camera. 

As we finally got back down to the bottom of the mountain we got the camera and set it all up. We headed back up the mountain (safe and sound) yay! haha and admired the most beautiful view! Definitely my favorite place in Michigan. After taking many photos of every angle possible (See pictures below) Trevor set up the camera where he sat it down on a step so we could have a picture together and record us with the view in the background, little did I know why he had properly set up the camera.. He got down on one knee.. and popped the question. I’m over the moon and very excited to announce..

we are engaged! 🙂

My ring is beautiful.. we had gone ring shopping together recently and I had pointed out the ring I loved, which is the actual one he had bought and this was purchased from Kohls. So let’s show you all some pictures below.

Birthday Celebrations! :-)

Birthday Celebrations! :-)

So we have been very busy the past couple of weeks and with not long to go until I have to return back to the UK after my 90 day ESTA spent in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan USA we are trying to get as much crammed in as we possibly can. With a recent small vacation to Minnesota where we spent some time together.

Trevor’s birthday was April 3rd! He turned 23, so we had some birthday celebrations! It was lovely for us to celebrate his birthday together as we never had the chance too last year. He had the day off from work which was nice and we got to meet up with his family and have a meal to celebrate. Trevor’s mum is great at baking and made some great cupcakes! Below you’ll see some presents that he received from myself and his family.

Our February Favorites!

Our February Favorites!

It’s nearly spring time! 

🙂

Hello everyone! So as we already say goodbye to February and jump into another month! which means.. more chocolate as easter really isn’t far away my friends. Do we have any favorite easter eggs? I know my favorite is galaxy chocolate egg or the Lindt chocolate and Trevor’s favorite is Lindt also. I know that ever since I was a little girl I’ve always been told the saying “Pinch Punch first day of the month” and saying “white bunny’s” before midday was always meant to be a sign of “Good Luck” coming, did anyone else get told this when they were younger? So without further ado, we decided we wanted to share with you some of our favorite things we have enjoyed using throughout February! 

Frith Apparel

Trevor has recently set up his new online clothing company and is called “Frith Apparel” he sells his own designs on T-shirts, hoodies and women’s leggings. Trevor recently gave me a top called “Nap Queen” from off his site and I’m so in love with it! the texture is lovely and you can choose from a variety of T-shirt colors, as well as this he also gave me a pair of leggings/yoga pants which I am in love with! I love them because I can use them to work out in but also to wear out and about. 

To visit his new site and get ordering visit Frith Apparel here – www.FrithApparel.com

Simple makeup wipes

I recently brought the “simple cleansing makeup wipes” and after trying other wipes these ones work well for my face and clear makeup off in an instant, the wipes have a lot of moisture in and they are great for sensitive skin. I will be buying these again and highly recommend you to give these wipes a go!

Simple moisturizer 

Trevor recently brought this moisturizer and is loving it! He feels that this moisturizer does not make your skin feel oily compared to other moisturizer brands and it works quickly after putting it on after a shower, great for dry and sensitive skin.

Estee Lauder – Double wear foundation and Concealer 

I recently got this double wear foundation and concealer by Estee Lauder as I was wanting to try a darker shade and try a different cosmetic company and honestly it’s great, it really doesn’t give me that oily look and I was really impressed at how long the makeup stays on my face for throughout the day without having to reapply, however it is on the pricey side for makeup and the foundation does not have a pump so it can get a little messy when trying to pour it out and manage the ratio for your knowing how much you will need. Overall, one of my favorite foundation and concealers.

Snow Rose – Lulu Taylor

I recently brought this story book to Michigan with me and it’s great, the story is written well and describes the characters and story clearly, it really does draw you in and makes you feel as if you are another character hidden in the corner listening in to all of the different conversations going on around you, some parts of the story make you want to grip onto the book a little tighter. A beautiful old vintage Victorian house that hasn’t been touched for years get’s open up to Kate or shall I say Rachel, get taken through the past of the house with characters and find out what happens along the way.

EOS – Blackberry Nectar 

I recently got this EOS lip balm in the flavor – Blackberry Nectar, it’s lovely and you can really taste/smell the blackberry coming through. EOS are my favorite lip balms and I also have Watermelon which is really lovely.

Refresh Tears – Eye drops

Trevor’s favorite eye drops as they feel refreshing and reacts quick and feels natural so you do not get that gel feeling.

Cheetos

Since coming to Michigan I love Cheetos! haha, I love cheese so that’s probably why, In the UK we have watsits which are the equivalent to Cheetos. Trevor actually brought me some for valentine’s day.

Bath and Body works – Shower gel and body lotion

I recently went to the bath and body works store and came across one of my new favorite scents in a shower gel called “Cocktail Dress” from their signature collection the scent is so nice and has a blackberry smell to it, it does leave your body smelling so nice for a while after which I love. However I believe it may have been a limited edition one because after going back into the store they didn’t have it any more. I did pick up the scent “cashmere glow” in the body lotion, which is also nice and leaves my body feeling soft and smelling lovely. This is still available to buy.

Notebook

I have been loving my new notebook! I write down all of our blog ideas and it really helps me to be organized. Love love love it!

Suave Shampoo – Macadamia Oil – Normal to dry hair

I recently started using this new shampoo and it has a lovely scent to it as well as this it is perfect for those of you who have dry hair and needs some oil/moisture to it. Works for me so give it a try.

4k Action Camera

Trevor recently received the 4K action camera and is loving every minute with it, taking some snaps and recording videos on day trips out. The best thing about the camera is that the wide-angle is great for when taking pictures.
