NO7 TESTER PRODUCT REVIEW | LIKE'S & DISLIKE'S

7:47 pm

Feeling very disappointed with myself because I had this whole 'New Year' intro planned out but posted something different and it's already mid/late February. Also, apologies for not posting often I have been really struggling with time-keeping lately x

I've been writing this review for a couple of weeks now giving me a chance to see how the tester products work. The following products I will be reviewing are The No7 Age Defence Cleansing Balm and The No7 Protect & Perfect Moisturising Eye Cream. I think it's great that I'm trying these products because it's never too early to start anti-ageing.


Welcome! This little corner of the internet belongs to a teen blogger who loves to write and share her ideas with the world (or whoever's reading). You'll find mainly Beauty and Lifestyle posts here but, as you can see I write a little bit of everything ;)

Some of these products are a little outdated, Don't worry I'm totally aware, I will try to link some of the products. When I went onto Boots UK I noticed most of the products now say ADVANCED. I am not reviewing the ADVANCED formula but most of the links will likely say ADVANCED. I may be able to find exact links from Amazon. Apologies in advance ;)


No7 Age Defence Cleansing Balm


I was really excited to try his product because it is basically a makeup remover. I have only ever used face wipes to remove my makeup so it was a great chance for me to try out alternatives. I couldn't find this product ANYWHERE for some reason, so I found a No7 alternative instead. Check it out here.

REVIEW:
I am totally in LOVE with this product, Definitely my favourite of them all. I applied it with a cotton pad to remove my makeup and I have to say it removed lots more than I expected it too and I didn't even have to use that much product. I did still use a wipe just to get the remainder off but it left my skin feeling very refreshed. I'm genuinely upset I couldn't find a link for it. If you try the alternative linked please comment saying whether it worked for you!


No7 Protect & Perfect Moisturising Eye Cream

I have also not used many eye creams before but I was open to trying a new one. I admit, I didn't stick to applying it religiously but I managed to get a basic opinion of it. Check it out here

REVIEW:
The product came in a tiny tube with a small end making it easy to apply to my under eyes. On the front, it said 'For younger looking eyes'. I didn't notice a HUGE difference but I can certainly say it helped improve the bags under my eyes. I would say try it if you have dark under-eye circles like me.

Goals

MY TRAVEL GOALS | TOP PLACES I WANT TO VISIT

6:01 pm

Hey there! Today's post is going to be a Lifestyle-Travel-Inspiration post. I'll be talking about my future travel goals, and places I possibly will live. I've honestly never really consciously thought about my travel goals, except for a few "I am gonna live there when I'm older" remarks. 

Welcome! This little corner of the internet belongs to a teen blogger who loves to write and share her ideas with the world (or whoever's reading). You'll find mainly Beauty and Lifestyle posts here but, as you can see I write a little bit of everything ;)

I also would like to apologise if these seem basic but I haven't yet been to any of the places on this list (you'll know when I do!) and yeah, that's about it let's get into it.


*not in any particular order



U.S.A (Not America that's a continent) - New York City

Okay very basic but with sky rise buildings, a massive beautiful garden and fleets of those NY taxis everywhere? Yeah, definitely one on the list. I hope to one day visit New York City because I am one of those people who loves living in populated areas and apartments. 

I also happen to know a lot about America actually, more than your average British adult. For some reason I know 20 of the 50 states and around 15 - 20 of the 45 presidents, I also know how their school system is compared to the Uk's (If you were in Yr11 in the Uk you would be in 10th grade in the US) and some more general knowledge.

P.S.  It's the U.S, not America because that's a continent, Not even North America because that contains Canada. It's called The United States OF America. Simples!

France - Paris

I have technically (not really) been to France. Well being honest I went on a connecting flight from Ireland to France to somewhere else. So I was probably there for an hour. I may be going this summer (still unsure). Paris is a city filled to the brim with culture and so much more. It is hard to narrow it to 3 but top places I would want to visit in Paris would be Disneyland, The Louvre and The Eiffel Tower.

U.S.A - California - Los Angeles


IT'S L.A, NEED I SAY MORE? The most Tumblr place in the world, famous people everywhere, beaches and space. Something NY lacks I have to say. I want to visit here for all of those reasons. Top 3  places I would want to see here would probably be The Hollywood Walk of Fame, The Hollywood sign and The Santa Monica Pier.

France

I don't have a specific place for this one but all I know is that skiing in French mountains would be awesome. I do hate cold though so I wouldn't rank this high in a list.

The UK - England - London

As I am currently living in the UK I have to say London is... difficult. I know it's probably overrated, It's annoying that foreigners think London is the only place in Britain and it's expensive as hell. Yet I haven't been to London so naturally, I feel the urge to go. Top places I would want to visit in London would most likely be The London Eye, Buckingham Palace and the High street as most shops would be quite large I think.


Spain

The reason I haven't got a specific place in Spain set is because I have that many places I want to visit there. I see it more as a holiday destination that everyone flocks to each summer because of its wonderful climate. That's probably the reason I want to go too.

Australia - Sydney

I LOVE SYDNEY. I would want to live there when I'm older but it is the 5th most expensive place to live in the world and I am scared of spiders. I have serious Arachnophobia to the point where I will almost have a panic attack. 

If I see one in my house I burst out crying and demand my brother to kill it, he then taunts me by holding the tissue with the dead spider in it and childishly chases me. With the help of adrenaline, I run like I have never run before, to my room where I barricade myself in. I then avoid the place where the spider was found for the next week.

I would not be able to handle living in Sydney if there are spiders  (Australian spiders are massive) because I can't kill one myself. Anyone who's not scared wants to come with?

Aside from that Sydney is my dream place to live, one of the biggest cities too, which I love.

And those were a few of my travel goals! I really hope I will be able to live or visit there someday. You never know what the future may hold.

blog tips

GRAMMARLY REVIEW | THE PERFECT TOOL FOR BLOGGERS?

7:54 pm


First things first, I would like to clarify that this is not sponsored. Grammarly is a tool I found through an ad online. I knew that I wasn't exactly the best writer so I said Hey, Why Not? It was one of the best decisions I made in a while.

Welcome! This little corner of the internet belongs to a teen blogger who loves to write and share her ideas with the world (or whoever's reading). You'll find mainly Beauty and Lifestyle posts here but, as you can see I write a little bit of everything ;)

So today I am going to be doing another review as I can see they are quite popular on my blog! I will be reviewing Grammarly. Let's get into it!


What Is It?

Now I don't know if you've heard of Grammarly but it's basically an add-on you can get for your browser, I have it for Chrome. It helps you with your writing and underlines typos and grammatical errors in a light red. I'll see if I can insert some pictures. 

This is a picture of the post before it was edited.

How to get it and start up.

Firstly you'll have to download Grammarly to your browser, click the link here and follow through with signing up (I don't receive anything for you signing up as this is not sponsored) Then set your settings to whatever language you use (I have mine set to British English). And you're done! 

What it does.

When you write anything (a Facebook post, a blog post, etc) using the browser Grammarly is installed on, a little green 'G' icon will show in the corner. It'll turn red when you've made a mistake and will show the number of mistakes you've made.

If you click the red button it will expand and you can correct your mistakes. Then you close the tab and your text will be corrected.


You can also expand each card individually for Grammarly to explain the mistake to you.
You're probably wondering, is it really needed? If you already have a built in spellcheck system it may seem unnecessary but, trust me when I say Grammarly is a step above these. I'll give you an example. When I write in blogger I will usually spell check my work but bloggers' spellcheck will not be able to tell whether I used ITS or IT'S correct. Grammarly will. 

My Opinion

As I have been using Grammarly for more than a while now I can definitely say it's  the best blogging tool I use. I always used to forget to spellcheck at the end of writing my posts and because Grammarly underlines everything as I go along I find I never miss a mistake. If you guys have any alternatives, I'd love to check them out!

Conclusion

I feel every person who has a website of any sort should download this tool, It has really helped me improve my writing and stop making grammatical errors. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and don't forget to share, comment and follow all my social medias which you can find on the sidebar or on my 'contact' page. Thank you for taking the time to read this post you don't know how much it means to me. If you want to sick around check out my Update Post.
Love you all x
