Online Next Clothing Haul and Review!

Image
I recently went on a little trip to Leeds and whilst meeting up with a friend and searching for lighting, I also bought some new clothes and I think they are gorgeous!

First of all, my favourite for £18! I was going to wait until the end but I am just too excited not to share this straight away. This is a tiered swing dress, perfect for holidays or warm weekends. Styled in a relaxed shape, it features a button detail down the front, with a scoop neck and wide shoulder straps. I love the Ochre Floral design and it is seriously so comfortable! I love that it's loose and flowy, the colour is gorgeous and it's really flattering.
Another dress I bought was a Tiered Blue Striped Dress. I feel like I'm constantly drawn to blue striped dresses but this is a much thicker, almost denim material. At almost £40 I think it's a little pricey but it is well made and I like the detail of the strap at the back.
I then bought a couple of these Metallic V-Neck Half Sleeve T-Shirt for £16…

Wise Hippo Hypnobirthing Case Study!

Image
Following on from my recent post announcing that I have now begun my journey to being a Wise Hippo Hypnobirthing instructor, I am excited to offer my services.

I love the concept of empowering and educating women in their pregnancy and labour, so with that, I want to share the sources and teachings to help women and their families have an enjoyable experience and feel in control at all times. Whilst I continuously endeavour to do this in my role as a student midwife, the constraints of the NHS often make it impossible so this is another route I'm hoping to achieve this by.
For my first client, as a "practice", I am wanting a client to case study. This will be entirely free, whilst you will still have access to all the resources normally available, and additional support too. The requirements are simply to be currently pregnancy and interested in learning more about the physiology of pregnancy and childbirth or just about hypnobirthing.

I am excited to see where this goes …

Peaceful Nature, Nervous Interview and Redecorating Rooms!

After finally seeing some family, I reunited with loved ones after 4 long months apart!

For the first time in over 4 months, I finally got to be reunited with my boyfriend and whilst it wasn't perfect - it never is! - it was still lovely and very much needed. We ended up going out to enjoy the sunshine at Elvaston Country Park. I was actually really impressed with it all and thought it was really pretty.

From there we headed to the pub near by. It was my first time eating at a restaurant inside since everything happened so it was an interesting experience. Honestly, I found it pretty annoying having to stick to a one-way system and didn't understand why we had to order at the bar still, but nevertheless, it was nice to eat out. Hopefully, it starts to feel more normal soon.
From there, we headed to a park in Long Eaton. It was gorgeous and I was actually really impressed with the large range of different facilities available. As we re…

Dollar Shave Club (Review)

Image
I bought this kit a few months ago now and I fell in love; it has well and truly changed by shaving game for the better. The Dollar Shave Club is a subscription box selling personal care products, although specialising in shaving. I recieved the Shaving Starter Kit which came with a razor, 4 blades and 3 travel sized products (Prep Scrub, Shave Butter and Post Shave Dew). However, now the Starter Kit just comes with the razor, 4 blades and Shave Butter...still a bargain!  The box came really quickly after ordering and I love the recycled box which I could also reuse myself. It also came with two little leaflets, one with information about the products in the box and the other had information regarding sustainability. It's great to see a company supporting that mission and improving the global environment through commitment.  The razor was incredible. Often people think that these sorts of razors are for men only, but the truth is women can use them too! It is a heavy-weight alumi…
