anatomicals: review

Anatomicals are a British owned, cruelty and paraben free company which specialise in the funkiest toiletries known to mankind. Attention-grabbing names and packaging is something this tongue-in-cheek attitude brand does very well!

puffy the eye bag slayer (wake-up under eye patches) 

Asos, £6 for a packet of three.

These little patches aim to reduce dark circles, eliminate puffiness and help prevent signs of under eye ages. They are enriched with moisturising agents to help your under-eyes look alive. I didn't really see the point of these at first, I understood their purpose, however, remained a little sceptical regarding whether or not they would actually work. I found them a little difficult to apply as I ended up getting the liquid that they come in everywhere, they are very slippy and slidey so you have to be very careful putting them on. Waiting half hour was a bit of a bore, especially as they kept moving about but I do think it was worth the wait. When you take the little patches off, your under eyes feel so smooth. They do reduce the appearance of dark circles and made my skin look very flat and normal which was great. I think if you wear makeup and have dry under-eyes (mainly if your concealer cracks/looks dry) these would really help, and even if you don't, these eye patches make you look much more awake and put together. This is very much one of those products that you don't consider or think you need until you actually try them.

we never forget a face (memorably good daily face moisturiser)-

Asos, £6.

This moisturiser has an SPF of 15, a light orchid fragrance and has a non-oily formula. It aims to reduce the appearance of fine lines and contains naturally derived moisturising ingredients and soothing aloe vera. I love the packaging of this product, it is a pump instead of a tube which I think I so much more easy to use and prevents messy people (like me) from making that much of a mess. The formula isn't too thick, it still feels quite thin on your face and soaks into the skin really well. A big positive is that it isn't too oily, but you can still feel it working on your skin so I do think it will suit the majority of skin types. For an easy, well-working, day moisturiser I do think this is very good, and it is one of those products I think you should give a try!

botanical hydrating rose face mask-


This face mask delivers the utmost moisture to your skin. It contains rose and ivy to give you a fresh facial in just 20 minutes. Cloth masks have never really been my thing, as I have never really seen the point in them. However, not only did I find this very amusing to wear, I think it did a really good job. I found it a little messy, as there was quite a lot of liquid and it kept slipping around on my face but I think this is probably an issue with every cloth mask. My skin felt as soft a baby's bottom. Honestly, I have never felt my skin that soft ever. The best thing was that it was a long-lasting kind of softness, it didn't go after an hour or so, my skin actually stayed that soft for a few days. I enjoyed the smell, I enjoyed the feeling of it on my skin and I really enjoyed how funny wearing it was (I looked like Mrs Doubtfire). 

I do think Anatomicals are a great brand! Both their prices and the quality of the products are amazing, and the brand as a whole is very humorous. The PR people are very lovely as well (they kindly sent me these products) and the type of people that work for brands/the response you get from them always shows the values and beliefs of the brand as a whole. I also had some normal face masks, however, I gave them as parts of Christmas presents and the people that have used them so far have commented on how soft and amazing their skin looks. I definitely think Anatomicals is a brand you should try (I rate them a five out of five stars).

missing: madeline mccaan (theory)

Typically, the true crime posts I write such as The Beaumont Children or Who Put Bella In The Wych Elm? are factually based posts with (what I hope) is a high level of objectivity.  However, I was requested to discuss my theory on the Madeline McCann case so this Missing/Unsolved will be opinionated.

I have decided not to go into extensive detail about her disappearance, although I will give you the basic facts and discuss the reasons behind my theory whilst talking about it. Her case is one of the most publicised in the world, so I believe most people will have knowledge of her disappearance that does not require me to write about it. If you are not familiarised with it, you can read about Madeleine McCann here.

Quick disclaimer: I am in no way stating that this is definitely what happened to Madeline, nor am I claiming to have any personal factual evidence regarding what happened to her. Regardless of what happened to her, a little girl is still gone and family members deserve to k…

dewy summer-glam

Right, so my makeup is not the best the whole year round as it is, so summer for me is a dreaded period. Matte products make my skin look too dry, the sweat emphasises the texture and makes my makeup run and the heat just makes me melt. By the end of the day, I look like a wax figure out of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in the scene where they set on fire, I don't remember being in the film but I am sure you can see me in one or two parts. However, I think I have nearly cracked the code. I am not quite there yet, I think I have to sort out my base and my setting portion of the makeup, however, I have some products that make me look like a semi-glamorous goddess regardless of the heat. Positively, I am not a full coverage type of gal at any point and I barely wear glam makeup which is why I am hardly bothered, but I do have a glam combination for those events where I have to look more done up. I've been watching some tutorials and reading some blogs all about makeup, so I …

*is online dating for you?

(*This post has kindly been sponsored by Digital Dudes LTD, however, all opinions/views are completely my own!)
The world is a big place, and the online world is even bigger. In my last post, I discussed online dating as a way to look for love as well as other platforms you could use to find that special someone, or even someone that is not that special (depending on which you wish to find). Today, I want to talk about if online dating could work for you or whether or not an alternative way of looking for connections would be better for you.


As I have mentioned beforehand, online dating is a fabulous way to connect with a range of new people for a range of different reasons. It allows you to gain more confidence, to get a feel for the person before you meet and to find people with similar interests to yourself. However, you do have to consider whether or not you think it is for you. Especially as there is a range of positives and negatives to talking to people online. It is important …
