Lush Dark Angels






Heya everyone


I thought I would write a little post about one of my favorites cleansers Dark Angels. I absolutely love it for so many reasons and here they are;


  • Its organic and oil free
  • It's works well for my oily and acne prone skin
  • It is exfoliating
  • You can also use it on the body too
  • It has licorice root extract which is an anti-inflammatory
  • It leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean
Since having Darcy my skin has suffered badly from outbreaks and I truly believe Dark Angels has calmed it down a lot. I know my skin is not perfect at the moment but it's getting there.


So here's my little review, I thought I would share this with you because I feel like its not a much talked about product.

Have you tried this cleanser? What is your favourite cleanser?

Review | Mr Nutcase phone case






Check out my new custom phone case I've just received from Mr Nutcase!

I'm not going to lie my old phone case had seen better days, full of scratches and wear and tear from being at the bottom of my bag. My sister has been nagging me for months to get a new case.

So it was perfect timing when Mr Nutcase asked me to review one of their cases.

I didn't go the typical route of choosing pictures, I wanted something chic and sleek as a treat for myself. I went browsing on the internet and found this pattern. Anyone who knows me will tell you I love me some Chevron,and  added with some glitter made it extra perfect.

I chose the Executive Flip Leather style which retails at £19.95, as I prefer my screen to be protected.  

The whole process was so quick and simple. You can either pick from one of their pre made designs, or upload your own photos onto one of their many templates. It only took 5 minutes to complete and I received my specific case two days later.

I really love how it's turned out, it's even better than I was expecting! I would definitely recommend getting a case from Mr Nutcase.

With Father's Day round the corner, this would make a perfect personalised gift.

Mr Nutcase have been amazing enough to have given me a 10% off code to share with my readers! All you have to do is enter Thanku10 at the checkout

Have you got a personalised phone case? Would you pick pictures or a pattern?

#Morning Stories with BelVita



At the moment we don’t have a typical morning routine, Darcy rules the house (for the time being). However on Saturdays we always try and make the most of our day.




Darcy’s dad works 6 nights a week so Saturday is the only day he’s really around. Our morning starts with Darcy giving us big smiles, She’s always so cheerful in the morning. She then has some quality time with daddy. At the moment that involves them watching Stargate Atlantis on Netflix, which surprisingly Darcy loves.



Whilst they are watching that, I go down stairs and make Darcy her bottle. T gets a full English because i’m so good like that.  I'm not going to pretend that I eat a sit down breakfast every day. I am normally too busy to think about eating anything. This is when belVita comes in handy. I accompanying them with a yogurt, a piece of fruit and a mug of green tea.


If i’m feeling a little fancy I crumble a few biscuits into a bowl of greek yoghurt and top it off with lots of fruit it is like eating a cheesecake and if you’re on Slimming World you can eat all of that goodness for only 3 syns!!.


We normally have our Saturday breakfast in bed together, not ideal for everyone, but we enjoy it.


We then give Darcy a bath together, which ends up with us getting very wet. Darcy really enjoys her baths and loves nothing better than getting Mummy and Daddy wet whilst splashing away.




Once we are all washed and dressed we always go for a walk in the park. Each week we find a new park to explore. I really enjoy getting some fresh air and exercise. And Darcy loves "people watching" as she is so curious. Every time someone walks past her she always follows them around until they are out of slight.


T always treats me to a coffee, we always have a catch up and discuss our plans for the following week.


BelVita breakfast is the only breakfast biscuit proven to slowly release carbohydrates over four hours as part of a balanced breakfast, which is much better than grabbing a muffin or doughnut.




BelVita breakfast biscuits are available in 13 delicious flavours. As a Britmum blogger we were sent 3 to try, Fruit & Fibre, Milk & Cereals and Yogurt Crunch.


The Yogurt Crunch with a creamy live yogurt filling cocoa biscuits was my favourite as it is naughty and healthy at the same time, and apparently T’s also as when I went to get another pack I found just a empty box!!


So that is our typical Saturday morning routine. What are Saturday mornings like in your house?

Review | Nonabox



If you haven’t heard of Nonabox before they are a monthly subscription box full of specially selected products, chosen to reflect what stage of motherhood you are in from pregnancy to the first two years of your baby's life.

I have read good and bad reviews on the Nonabox in the past. When I saw they were offering 30% off I thought what a great opportunity to try the box at a reduced rate of £17 instead of the normal £25.



My Nonabox included the following
  • Snooze Baby Sweet Dreaming - RRP £12.95
  • MAM First Tooth Brush - £3.50
  • Mega Blocks First Builders Block Buddies - RRP £ 2.99
  • Organic Babies Body Wash and Shampoo - RRP £ 7.25
  • Arbonne Intelligence Rejuvenating Cream - RRP £29.00
  • The Soother Company Soother - RRP £5
  • Neuner's Organic Nursing Tea - RRP £4.49





Snooze Baby Sweet Dreaming - lovely and soft, Darcy loves nuzzling up to it




MAM First Tooth Brush - Age 6 months + so Darcy will have to wait a little bit longer to use it




Mega Blocks First Builders Block Buddies - Age 1 - 5 years so given it to Darcy's half brother




Organic Babies Body Wash and Shampoo - Scented with Mandarin and Lavender




Arbonne Intelligence Rejuvenating Cream - A little bit too thick for my oily skin, but left my skin soft




The Soother Company Soother - They offer personalise soothers on their website. Will defo be getting Darcy one




Neuner's Organic Nursing Tea - Everyone knows how much I love herbal tea, however, this was not to my liking.


Overall my first experience of a Nonabox has been hit and miss.  Darcy is unable to use most of the items, It is also rather gender specific toward boys, despite the information they requested at the time of ordering. However for the price the Nonabox is great value for money, however, they need to ensure that the box is specific for the requested age group.


I’ve been in touch with Nonabox and they informed me that some products they send out are meant to be kept for when a child is little older and future boxes will continue to be tailored to their age. Which was something I didn't think about. I have signed up for another month and looking forward to see what we will receive.

Have you ordered a Nonabox before? what is your favorite monthly subscription box?

Haul: Forever21 Plus Size

Last Saturday I headed down to Westfield Stratford for a day shopping and lunch with a few blogger babes.

I have to admit I haven’t been much of a fan of Forever 21 in the past, The last time I went there didn’t have much of a plus size range in store, and what they did have was very casual. HOWEVER the store has had a revamp and the plus size range on offer is bigger and better than before. I have to say I was really impressed with what they had to offer and was spoilt for choice.



Spotlight Scuba Knit Dress
I love the fit and the shape of this Scuba dress so much so I got it in 2 out of the 4 colours. I picked the bright colours as I feel they bring out the richness of my skin tone, and at only £12.75 it is a complete bargain!

Garden Goddess Maxi Dress
I fell in love with this maxi dress from the time I saw it on the hanger. Its elasticated and slightly sheer. I can’t wait to wear this on a lovely summer day with a pair of flip flops.



Striking Laser Cut Crop Top
I wasn’t too sure about this crop top when I saw it on the hanger but Micheala insisted that I tried it on. Its a lovely thick material and not too short. I especially love the laser cut  detail.

Have you shopped at Forever 21 before?

Wish List Wednesday | Simply Be

simply be wish list




I found out today that Simply Be have 20% off everything for 48 hours using the code WGRW3. I am so excited I thought I would share with you some of my favourite pieces!! I am definitely going to have to order myself a thing or two or three.

AX PARIS MIAMI NUMBER BOYFRIEND T SHIRT Look how fabulous this top is, the colour is perfect. The floral isn't too much thanks to the American football logo. I would pair this with a pair of dark jeans or some denim shorts.

STUD DETAIL BAG I saw this bag on Simply Be Twitter page and fell in love with it instantly. I love the zesty yellow which screams out summer. This bag will be perfect when I am not using Darcy’s changing bag.

LOOK BARDOT PRINTED PROM DRESS We all know i’m a sucker for a pretty dress. I just love the print and colour and the shape is perfect.   I love a dress that fits on my smallest part and flares out as it shows off my best bits and covers the areas I an not overly comfortable with.

MAGISCULPT THE WONDERPIECE SWIMSUIT I’m planning on taking Darcy swimming for the first time and on the hunt for a new swimming costume. The first thing which jumped out to me was the print, I also love the fact that it is loose around the belly area.

JEFFREY & PAULA COWBOY BOOT EEE FIT I know with it being spring I should be looking for a pair of sandals, but you can’t beat a good ankle boot. I’m super excited as well as these beauts go up to a size 10 perfect!

LOOK FLORAL PRINT JUMPSUIT I was in two minds about this jumpsuit when I first saw it but seeing how beautiful Hollie looked in it has changed my mind. I love the bold print and the fact it can be dressed up or down.

So that’s my first Wish List Wednesday, did you see anything you like or something you want to get as well??

Burger Afternoon Tea at BRGR.CO


We all know my love for Afternoon Tea and Burgers so imagine my excitement when I found out about Afternoon Tea at BRGR.CO. The place is situated on Wardour Street and boast exposed brickwork and an open kitchen which gives it a very casual and relax feel.






We were greeted by a friendly waiter who showed us to our table, then explained our Afternoon tea. There were no cucumber sandwiches with the crust off or scones with cream and jam in slight!!.


A glass of Peach Bellini and a huge refreshing glass of Pomegranate ice tea ,3 slider size burgers of Beef, Chicken and Lobster with a side of tiny fries. The Beefburger was my favourite, soft, tender, juicy and cooked to perfection, it was a shame my fries were not hot to accompany the burger.


Then on to the sweets ,a warm mini salted caramel doughnut, mini strawberry and white chocolate cheesecake, a mini chocolate brownie and to finish off a mini vanilla milkshake, all this for £17 what a bargain!.

If you are around Soho, love burgers and afternoon tea, you should really check this place out.
