A British Spring

A British Spring

1A49D713-D068-4313-9CC0-655E7D348168

Well howdy pals, its spring! Another day, another month and another day closer until we close our long distance gap and what better way to share with you all some of my favorite scenery moments throughout it! I’m not even sure which flower is my favorite to choose from this spring, I think many people across the blogging network are loving the peonies which I’ve not had a chance to purchase just yet.. I know.. I gotta. But how do you choose between tulips which can I say are in like 54 different colours and pretty pink peonies, honestly what a hard choice especially as Trevor will agree, Pink is my all time favorite colour, no matter what day, season or mood.. pink, pink, pink and then you end up standing in the store for a while deciding which flowers to get when let’s be honest all you really want to do is buy the whole flower section, no? 

I felt like I wanted to share a special moment with you guys.. this time last year Trevor was over here with me in the UK and he got to experience spring and summer, we went for many walks which we loved, saw many flowers and got attacked by hundreds of wasps.

It’s the little things you remember and one that I thought about this morning was that where we were living in our apartment was a large area of open land for you to explore and take a dog for a walk (although we still don’t have our golden retriever) it was lovely to just spend the evening together and go for a walk, we came across many passages and part of the land had a hidden tree swing which hung above a stream (definitely teenage scout built) I was totally scared and multiple times Trevor stood at the bottom ready to catch me haha, but it was so much fun and I would definitely do it again. 

Far to many of us.. I’m one of them, are spending so much time with our heads down in our phones or to busy to realise the world around us, did you see that flower up the road? no? Take a look the next time you’re out. At the moment I’m loving going for spring walks, leaving my phone at home and taking in the mother nature. Another thing I’m doing at the moment (purely because I don’t have a car but purely because i’m trying to be healthy lol says the one currently munching some cake) is bike ride to work, but I’ve discovered things i’ve not discovered before whilst driving and I’m appreciating the nature a lot more now then I did. So take the time. 

Sadly, recently my granddad passed away, he loved gardening and was always out there sunday mornings cutting the grass or planting flowers when I turned up at his house. And one of the them are these beautiful purple flower clematis that always lit up every year on the back garden fence. Now every other sunday I attend the house these remind me of what a happy place the garden was for my granddad. Take a look at the flowers below.

Beauty Haul Essentials!

Beauty Haul Essentials!

“Inner beauty is great.. but a little mascara never hurt.” 

Find beauty in everything they said.. so I took a trip to the drug stores and picked out a load of beauty products hehe! ok ok that was cheesy, but no seriously I did, let’s not talk about the price uh oh haha but let’s talk about the products right? hell yes! 

So over the past couple of months I’ve been trying out new products and seeing what works best for me and spending time in america really allowed me to explore different stores and see what products are available! and I think I’ve cracked it, so I thought I’d show you what I got, below are all of the things I have been loving recently! 

 

KUKUI OIL SHAMPOO 

I needed a new shampoo and have been wanting to try OGX for sometime now.. perfect time to purchase or was that a perfect time to purchase it?! well the answer was a perfect time, it works wonders on my hair, I sometimes get a mix between frizzy and dry hair and knowing this has an oil in really works wonders, it targets frizzy hair and gives it a hydrating finish.

SATIN CARE GILLETTE | SHAVING GEL

Instead of beating round the bush I’ll just tell ya that the only main reason I brought this was because I got bikini line spots and I really wanted to get rid of them, so after much research well.. as everyone does.. searching through pinterest I came across using a shaving “gel” as before I’m not gonna lie I didn’t use anything. In case you have the same issue as me.. another tip I found useful was to shave with the grain and not shaving against it and can I say.. something worked because I’ve not had any spots since. yay!

JOHN FRIEDA | FRIZZ EASE 

Purposely brought because I frequently get frizzy hair, this stuff is great and I’m not just saying that.. I apply it after I’ve had a shower to damp hair and leave it in, it works wonders. Definitely up there with one of my best beauty purchases yet.

SIMPLE FACIAL CLEANSING WIPES

My only “go to” makeup wipes, I have sensitive skin when it comes to facial washes and makeup wipes so these simple sensitive skin wipes are perfect for taking my makeup off.

CUTEX NAIL POLISH REMOVER

ELEGANT TOUCH 

You know once you’ve showered and you wanna paint your nails but your constantly procrastinating because it takes so long to dry and then your afraid of moving incase you smudge them and it’s like ALL I WANT TO DO IS TOUCH THE TV REMOTE haha, can you relate? was that not the best example? haha, well this stuff is the bomb it literally dries your nails in like 60 seconds, makes your nails a little shiny to.

TRESEMME SEA SALT SPRAY

Recently purchased this from superdrug, thought I’d give it a try to see how much “beach waves” turn out. Anyone tried this sea salt spray yet? pretty pricey so I’m hoping it was worth the money.

SALLY HANSEN STRENGTHENER 

Got this because at my work I’m not allowed to wear nail varnish, this is just a clear coat but it does makes my nails shiny and at the same time strengthens them.

RIMMEL NAIL POLISH

I am so in love with black nail polish at the moment.. I have no idea why haha. Going for that Coachella vibe perhaps. It just corresponds well with any outfit don’t you think? Anyhow I’m loving it.. I have it on right now as I type this haha. I purchased the Rimmel polish. I also love the fact that Rimmel have the 60 second drying nail polish WHAT did Jess just say?! Yes girls 60 seconds which persuaded me even more to purchase these bloody beauties.

SPRUNCH AUSSIE HAIRSPRAY

To cut a long story short.. Trevor had this at his house and I asked him if I could borrow it. Turns out I LOVED it didn’t I! So before I went home to the UK I brought one to use as I know we don’t have this sprunch hairspray here. It’s great for your curls and locks in your hair for them breezy days. This is in my top 3 of favorite hairsprays.

Have any of you tried the above products? How do you like them? What are your top 3 favorite products at the moment? ooh so many questions! haha, let me know in the comments below and maybe I’ll just have to pop to boots and purchase them.

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.  

FHD0317.JPG


 

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.

Our Valentines Date Night!

Our Valentines Date Night!

Roses are red, Violets are blue..

So It’s that time of year again where you can snuggle up in front of a movie whether that be a family member or even a best friend either way it was Valentines day a couple of days of ago and we thought we’d like to share with you on our blog a little exclusive as to what we got up too. 

So we decided to go out for a meal that afternoon to a small local restaurant just up the road which Jess couldn’t wait to try out! We both got dressed up which felt lovely that we’d both made an effort. It was really nice getting to chat about things we like and what we don’t like but also having a laugh at the same time, sharing more past stories and learning more about each other. 

When we got to the restaurant we sat in a beautifully located booth separated at the back of the restaurant situated by a fireplace and lots of little cute vintage objects around it. We both decided to share mozzarella sticks for our appetizer which tasted great! Jess chose a burger which was stacked with lettuce, pickles, cheese, onions, more onions and.. onions haha, the burger pretty much ended up falling apart.. but with this came a portion of fries. Trevor decided to go for the chicken tenders for his main meal which he loved! accompanied by some fries and one of his favorite dressings ranch. Portion control was great and Trevor ate everything.

Trevor kindly put himself forward to pay for the meal which was a lovely treat. Unfortunately after our food there was no room for pudding to be squeezed in so after we got back home and waited a little we decided to have some of Trevor’s moms beautifully made “Chocolate mayonnaise cake” which we didn’t have time to show you as we ate it so quickly haha.


We hope you have enjoyed reading today’s blog, let us know if you got any gifts and if so what you received, or let us know what you got up to on Valentines day in the comments below.

Winter In Michigan! 

Winter In Michigan! 

Hello Everyone!

🙂 

Are we off to a good start into 2017? Or are we still slowly getting over the Christmas break? Back into reality and already trying to shed the pounds from those large Christmas dinners and all that chocolate? Oh yessss it starts again people, has anyone perhaps achieved one of there New Years resolutions already? Have you started your resolutions? I’m sure what ever you’re doing is heading in the right direction so keep going friends and let me know in the comments below how you’re doing so far!

So yes so far my year is definitely of to a great start! As you’ve been reading from my previous blogs, you’ll know that I was going to Michigan to spend some time with my boyfriend Trevor and.. I’m officially in Michigan!  Yay! I couldn’t be happier right now, spending time exploring the beautiful state is exactly what I planned to do and especially with my favorite person. It’s so lovely to be back with him, we spent two months away from each other which felt like forever. He lives in America and I live in the UK so you can see the struggle it’s been, but we’ve been strong and we are making it work. Trevor spent six months with me in the UK and I’m currently visiting Michigan for three months, I’m loving every minute, the next stage is to look at visas to see where we go from there as to living with each other permanently. We definitely can not wait to spend our future together, so a lot of exciting things ahead. 🙂

As you can tell by some of the pictures you can see some of the spectacular views I have been lucky enough to visit so far. Below you can see the beautiful transformation from water to ice, we visited an Ice cave and we went inside where yesss! we were sliding all over the place because even the floor was Icy, so much fun! It was a remarkable view to see the color differences between the icicles too. Let me know if you have seen something similar to this? maybe upload some pictures so I can see. 


We also went snow tubing! It was so much fun, sitting on the tube and laying across the tube to see how fast we could go down the slope, I’ve done this before in the UK but without snow so I wasn’t nervous to go down it but this time I rode down the hill on snow, so much more fun and a lot faster! Hey, sometimes it’s fun to let yourself go and let your inner childishness out haha. Take a look at the view from the top of the snow tubing hill. In front you’ll see the huge lake which was covered with thick ice, what a spectacular view, one of my favorite photos.

fullsizerender

I just wanted to share with you guys some of the beautiful spots I’ve been lucky enough to explore so far, admiring the beauty of nature, something you do not get to see every day in the UK that’s for sure. I encourage all of our readers to get out there with your loved ones and appreciate the little things in life you come across. 

So also whilst I’m out here, I’m getting to try out some new sports (winter means > winter sports) Trevor has been teaching me how to snowboard.. I’ve had two lessons so far and it’s safe to say I definitely need more practice haha, I’m not too bad but I’m still trying to learn to stop myself with my board instead of falling over haha, hey it’s all fun and games and I’m loving it. 

Also! 

I’m learning how to snowmobile, oh my gosh people, I love it haha. I’m not sure what it is exactly but I think I just love how fast it can go and you can practically do anything through the snow. Trevor is great at snowmobiling and I’m not just saying that because he is my boyfriend haha, Over all I’m not that bad but I’m still not 100% confident with riding over bumps super fast without having great control over what I’m doing, but hey I’m learning and I’m sure with a few more tries I’ll master it. I also want to learn more tricks, I can now stand up whilst riding so I’m getting there. Below you can see Trevor’s snowmobile.

I have just realized how much I’ve rambled on haha, but I guess you can tell I’m loving every minute being out here and being able to spend every moment I can with Trevor. I’ve even been able to try out new foods but I can tell you this in another blog.. another day haha.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s blog, please give it a like if you did, maybe even a comment too and if you have extra extra extra time.. why not go ahead and share it.
