You Beauty

The You Beauty box has got a new home and has had a bit of a make over for February, the price is still the same £6.95 including postage and you still get to choose 2 products to try.
Because of the make over this month and re subscribing I got extra samples in my box they were the Eyeko black mascara and Phillip Kingsley elasticiser.

The extra in the box that everyone would get even if they hadn't re subscribed were Vita Liberata overnight face tanning mask and Real Techniques brush cleaning gel.

My first choice was Benecos hand and nail cream. This has a really refreshing orange scent to it, it does hydrate your hands well but does leave a little bit of a greasy film on your palms. I love to try new hand creams and I'm always in search of the perfect one but sadly I don't think this is it.

My second choice was Dr Organic Dead Sea Face Mask. I much prefer my face masks in a tube or pot as you can use as much as you need, I always find that with the sachets I'm throwing a lot away. I have used the Dr Organic snail gel before which is really good so I have high hopes for this.

I was a little worried when I got the email last month to tell me the box was changing that it would mean an increase in price or a change to how you could choose your products but I'm pleased to say this has all been kept the same.

Birthday Fun

haven't been feeling great for the past few weeks but I finally have some antibiotics so hopefully I will start feeling better soon! This means that my birthday this year has been a little different as I was a bit too tired for a full day out but it was a fabulous day all the same.
My lovely hubby brought me breakfast in bed while I opened my presents from him. They were really lovely, he got me earings and a necklace that match the ring he got me to replace my wedding ring at Xmas. And this totally amazing phone case!

After breakfast I got ready to go out, it was the first time in 3 weeks that is worn make up and felt presentable. I wore my jeggings from Matalan, a old Evans top, Simply Be boots, New Look leather jacket and I added my faux fur stole over the top. Excuse the mess birthdays are not for cleaning!

We headed off to Cannon Hall farm, I love being around animals and this was the perfect way to spend my birthday morning. 
Here are a few pictures from the farm,

As it was quiet at the farm we decided to wander into the kids play area which resulted in me grinning like a big kid and the hubby on the floor! 

We picked up some bits from the farm shop including some very fancy chocolates and steaks to have that evening. We also picked up some passion fruit vodka ready for when I can drink again.
The rest of the day was spent watching films, playing Fat Princess and snuggling with the cats and the hubby, perfection!
