My Thai Swedish Hot Oil Massage Bliss and how you can get it




Here's the thing: I love massages. I love getting them. I love giving them (I'm excellent at giving them actually). I love em. There's just something about lying face down and getting smacked about a bit that… wait… actually I stand by that, it's great.

Here's the other thing: I can't afford all the massages my body craves! I'm not an inspo blogger, I don't have a tonne of money to throw about and live the glam life. I don't even have the money to pretend I live the glam life. I'm the girl who took a year long nail course and became a qualified nail technician because I couldn't justify spending £40 on a manicure but I could justify £200 on a life long skill. 

I like my value for money. 

This is why the Northern Ireland based Ohh Social is the perfect app for me. It's all about the value for money and it's all about the price per use. So what is it?



Essentially it's a Buy One Get One Free app for restaurants, coffee shops, bars, beauty salons, cinemas, hotels, gyms, activity parks, kids activities... Pretty much everything you can think of it you wanted to treat yourself or the family. You pay an annual fee and BAM the world (of Belfast) is your oyster. You even get a little counter of how much you've saved!

If you're looking for a recommendation of what to pick first? Go for the Swedish hot oil massage at Thai Orchid. You will NOT regret it! The girls are lovely, the atmosphere is very zen; you will glide out after your time is up. 


*the app and the massage were gifted to me by various parties however all opinions are my own.

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…

Lush Slap Stick

I’m going through a bit of a rut. Of course “a bit of a rut” doesn’t really cover what I’m going through but let’s leave the tough stuff to my doctors and new therapists and stick with “rut” here. Anyways… it’s taken it’s toll on me, both emotionally and physically. On the rare days when I have the mindset or strength to wear makeup I hate it. My self care routine has gone the way of the poop emoji and although I wasn’t actively looking for a solution I knew that I needed something that would help hide the neglect I was doing to my skin and lessen the damage.

This was when I discovered the new Lush Slap Stick foundation. Their selling point is that their unique packaging free range of makeup helps reduce waste and is completely eco friendly. My buying point was that I could slap it on my face any which way and give it a quick blend out without looking like a toddler who discovered their mums pan stick and, with its coconut oil base and a whole blend of other oils, it would at least h…

Am I Disabled?

This article has been going through my head quite a lot recently and I’m feeling a little self indulgent so bear with me.

As a kid I was on the special needs list throughout school and given a classroom assistant to help with my tracheostomy care. I was considered disabled enough to warrant disability benefits right up until I turned 18 when they decided that I wasn’t mentally incapacitated enough and too independent. A panel of bureaucrats sat across the table and said “we can see you are but there’s nothing we can do.” I didn’t tick the right boxes.
I’ve worked since I was old enough and supported myself as much as I could and excluding a few short absences from work I have been successful in that.
Until now.
Now I can’t support myself. I struggle with self care. I’ve had to give up my home and I’ve lost my independence. I’m back to getting surgery’s every 6-8 weeks. They were usually just day cases but the last few have been fairly severe with extended stays (I get to have another …
