How I spend my chilled evenings

Hi guys hope your all well, today I'm actually having a bit of a chilled evening after a busy day in work, I finished early from work the sun was shining and I got loads of boring washing and cleaning done. My children were relatively calm after a mad day in school but were playing musically on there iPads so once that was done it was our family time. And I rarely get to do it but what's better than lying on the sofa with your feet up with the kids round you, well I love it anyway.  I'm really back into watching Benidorm again I thought it was slow to start but it's eventually picking up and I'm enjoying it again and yes I do find watching the tv Panasonic 4K TV is perfect for this as when I had my first flat I had the smallest little portable tv you have ever seen and I couldn't see anything on it.  So to be fair I didn't find it relaxing or get to appreciate anything I was watching as I could hardly see it plus it was so grainy I often just turned it off and lost my patience grrrrrr. So I actually feel posh now as I have defo upgraded and when I have the time I love watching travel programmes and love seeing things in the glory and colour they should be not in the past black and white god I'm so old.


I would say that family life and free time are not something that many people can find time to mix together.so I would say if you get it snatch it and do it as making memories are the best thing ever. I literally have to snatch the time now as my teenage daughter is generally in her bedroom on group chats talking to her friends, my middle boy is generally on his phone or out with his friends or doing his homework, and my littlest doesn't give me much tv time as his xbox is attached to it, what idiot what do that (me) and he's playing FIFA as he's football obsessed, but I'd rather that than kicking the football all around my house as he's been known for the last year to do that and break loads of my vases. Oh actually as we speak he's up at the tv break and kicking a tennis ball around where did that come from.

Hope you enjoyed this and your valuable free time to

My lip filler experience

Hey guys  hope you are all well, and starting to enjoy the lighter nights, although tonight it's currently pouring down, so I thought I would fill you in on something I've had done, now my friends have been having Botox and things done to there faces for years and at the ripe old age of nearly 43 I've been lucky enough to not need anything like that done but recently whilst they were all having stuff done I thought I'd quite like a little filler to make my lips fuller but didn't want them to look huge.  Now my natural lips are a little wonky and quite thin on the top so I was hoping for a more fuller but natural lip.

The advice I would give is if you want something done research it first don't just jump in, the ladies that done mine are qualified nurses, I filled in paperwork including health questions, seen certification and had after care advice if you are not presented with any of these things I would think twice a cheaper offer may not be a sensible one.

So all in all my procedure took about twenty minutes where I was given a numbing block in my top lip, I am not keen on needles so I don't look. I close my eyes and think about nice things to take my mind off it all, once this is done the nurse goes ahead and injects the filler.  Now as I had explained the look I wanted she had she knew where to place the filler.  Once she was happy with this she moved on to the bottom lip and again applied the numbing block and proceeded to inject the bottom lip once the lip had numbed.



After she had finished they were swollen and they continued to be for about two days plus they do feel a bit weird like a bit rubbery but after that they do look much more normal, I don't think  they look huge well I don't think they do and I like the way they look with lipstick on, I don't wear Lipliner when they are like this as I feel they don't need anymore definition.



And this is my before and after pictures which they use on there website which I actually feel is quite nice, I know some people won't like them and that's ok.  If anyone wants to ask me anything I'm more than happy to help

Sarah Chapman Skinesis Ultimate Cleanse

So back with a skincare post today this time I've been trying a range I have heard absolutely loads about but I didn't but mainly because I stuck to my usual brands, anyway I decided to give the cleanser a go, described as a balm and after using a balm before but from a different brand I figured I didn't have to much to lose.
Sarah Chapmans ultimate cleanse is designed to remove all traces of makeup and to leave the skin feeling soft and clean, the cleanser comes in a pump bottle which you literally press one pump into your palm and that is sufficient to use to cleanse your skin.
Ingredients include soothing omega-rich baobab and borage oils mixed with a dose of antioxidant vitamins A and E and precious white lily to boost collagen production. Also provided is a professional cleansing mitt which has two layers one side for exfoliation and one for removing eye makeup.



So as someone who wears a lot of makeup including foundation and bronzer and blusher and eye makeup I was interested to see how this balm would perform and would it get all this makeup off, well the answer is yes, you use the amount that the pump dispenses and massage gently into your face, the balm turns into a creamy milky formula which easily wipes and washes away.  My skin is left cleansed feeling clean and brighter and my pores felt clean and tighter.  I didn't feel that my skin felt tight or irritated but felt soft clean and looked healthy and if you end up with healthy clean glowy skin then that's a great basis for your day to start with, if your skin looks congested and blocked then your makeup won't look great and you won't end up having the best day because if your skin doesn't look great you don't feel great.

I love this cleanser it truly is lovely and luxurious my only criticisms are the price point it's not the cheapest (£40.00 100ml) and the packaging in my humble opinion could be a little better but I actually do believe it's what's inside that counts.
