My Ideal Summers Day with Nivea

This post is so damn late. Summer has been and gone and my body is fighting me every step of the way. I've either been extremely busy or having to spend days in bed recovering and it's really getting to me. I'm definitely feeling the guilt for not doing as much blogging as I would like. Also definitely feeling the pain and remembering that I do actually have a chronic illness.

Anyway, I was recently asked to join the Nivea Family and I obviously said yes. Nivea then asked me about my Ideal Summers Day and what products would fit in with that. The thing that immediately came to mind was a day at the beach sunbathing, swimming in the sea and eating all the delicious seaside foods. However, when I went to Italy I soon realised that as a wheelchair user the beach isn't all it's cracked up to be. Don't get me wrong, the sea is my happy place. I adore listening to the waves crash but sand and wheelchairs just don't mix.

An Authentic Experience by Kelly Wittmann

I probably wasn't the best person to review this as I never read YA. I mainly stick to crime & thrillers so this was a big change. Kelly contacted me and said she was looking for disabled people to read and review her book so I agreed. I mean I should probably vary my reading habits and have a break from gory murders from time to time anyway. First of all, I love the cover and it definitely makes me want my pink hair back.

August 2018 Favourites

My favourites from August mainly consist of skincare. Once again I've been overdoing it and crashing hard. I really need to slow down because I'm not sure how much more my body can put up with. Luckily, my baby brother has just started uni, which definitely makes me feel super old because I started 7 years ago. Where does the time go? However, it does mean that with him busy at uni my life will probably calm down because it's normally him I'm running around with.

Cruelty Free Liquid Eyeliners

If you follow me on Instagram you will know that my go-to makeup look is a fierce wing. I have tried many a liquid liner in the hunt for a holy grail and I think I may have found it and it's cheaper than you think. I have tried way more than are pictured here but these are what is currently milling around in my collection so I thought I'd give you a run down. They are also all cruelty-free and range from £5.45 to £23.
