Adopt A Mermaid

So I was sent my very own mermaid in the post this week. I don't think I will ever get anything that matches my blog name more perfectly than this. An actual mermaid. The lovely people that sent me my own mermaid is Mermaid Adoptions. I was kindly sent Alexa* and I love her. Look at her gorgeous Turquoise hair (which also happens to be one of my favourite colours). She's so adorable and is currently sat on my desk supervising me making sure I actually write this post.

Chronic Illness Beauty Essentials

The other day when I was feeling extra crappy I was thinking about how much I loved certain products and how much easier they make my life. I thought I'd share my fave beauty products that are essential for me. There's hair products, the best moisturiser for crappy hands, miracle grow for nails and the only thing that has ever stopped me sweating like a pig. Quite a collection.

Vegan Tuck Box// July 2017

After seeing the Vegan Tuck Box on The Little Blog of Vegans Instagram last month I was desperate to try it. If you aren't following her on Instagram why not? Her feed is gorgeous. You should also follow her blog for all the delicious recipes. Anyway back to the box, you get so many products for £20 when you factor in postage. I chose the ultimate box which gives you a selection of 10-13 products but you can also get a cheaper variety box of 5-8 products.  

I'm trying to eat more vegan foods because 1) Saving animals and the planet and 2) my body absolutely hates dairy and it makes my skin break out in super painful acne and makes my stomach super angry. For now I'm taking small steps but it's better than no steps so send any vegan recommendations my way. I am obsessed with dairy free milks though which makes it easier as I would not survive without a decent tea (oat milk is bae) & coffee (coconut milk is life). Now onto what I got this month.

Hair Care for Frizz Free Hair

My hair has been an actual state recently. It normally borders on greasy but all the sun, hair dye and poor treatment of it might finally be catching up with me as it's gone a bit dry. I think my medication is also drying out my whole body though as my skin, face and mouth are also constantly dry. When I was asked if I wanted to try the John Frieda Frizz Ease range* I thought it might sort out the nest that is my hair. After giving it a go for a few weeks I thought I'd share with you my favourite hair stuff for super soft swishy frizz free princess hair.

I swear it's taken me forever to write up this post. It's been really difficult to form sentences that actually make sense haha. Here's hoping that I've proof read it enough that you can actually understand it. So we spent a week in Devon towards the end of June where I managed to read 3 books. It was bliss and meant my total for the month came to 4. Not too shabby.

June 2017 Favourites

June is over and done and tbh I'm freaking out a lil bit. Summer is my favourite time and now I keep hearing people saying it's nearly autumn and I'm not ready to be cold. I haven't had enough sun. I looved the heatwave we had even if I did have to travel home in my bra because the back of my top was soo sweaty from being in my wheelchair. I was made for the summer.

Anyway moving on. It's a tad late but here is what I was loving in June apart from the Sun
