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.

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.

Pamper evening gift!

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!

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! 🙂

IMG_6935ed

IMG_6947

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.
