let’s chat about go pros!

So as the title suggests I wanna have a little chat about Go Pros! We all know what they are right? If not they’re basically a mini camera that is basically to my knowledge bullet proof, you can use them under water {I even hate using my normal camera in the rain in fear of it breaking}, for any form of activities, or even day to day use! Plus due to the small size they’re great to carry around wherever you go!

Now they are mainly for videos of course, great for holidays etc, especially if you’re travelling light. But they do also take photos, which is ideal for someone like me that loves snapping any photo she can! It takes the faf out of carrying a camera around! Even though they are tiny the quality that they shoot is utterly amazing, and lives up to the same quality as a bigger camera.

In my search for a Go Pro I’ve been wondering where to find one, when buying something like a camera, you’ve always got to shop around haven’t ya, I want an utter bargain let’s be honest. Which means having about 20 tabs open on your laptop switching back and forth between prices ( ! talk about confusing ! ).

On my 21st tab opening I came across a wonderous website called Latest Deals, basically with this site you pop on it, and type in what you’re looking for so in my instance Go Pros, but it can be literally anything, even vouchers for food {YUM}!

Once you type in Go Pro it comes up with a huge list of all the Go Pros plus they’re prices that can be found online, so you can browse them all in one place?! AMAZING! You simply find the one you’re interested in and click ‘get deal’ and it takes you straight to the website where you can purchase the Go Pro straight away! Of course with it being called Latest Deals, it finds the cheapest prices!!! & the best deals possible for that product online. When I looked there where shops I’d not even heard of and wouldn’t have found myself, with utter bargains on them! If you’re also looking for a Go Pro head over to the Latest Deals website and have a lil browse for yourself ~here~!

If any of you have any of you tried a Go Pro before? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear how you got along with it & see any pictures you’ve shot!

alex steinherr ; primark skincare!

As soon as I saw via Alex’s Instagram that she had a skincare collection coming out with Primark I yelped, how exciting?! The woman behind the Glamour Mag column that knows everything about skincare has a brand spanking new skincare range!? and.. It’s affordable!? *SCREAMS*. So of course I had to get my hands on some of the products, I had a little look and chose 7 items that I fancied trying, so here I have them, going to do a lil review and tell you my thoughts.

Within the range there is different categories which are; Sleep Spa, Pollution Solution, Pore Balance, Plump & Glow, Maximum Moisture. So there is literally something from anyone, also the prices are a huuuge plus for me as they range from £3 ~ £5! As I said there is lots of products, so have a lil look ~here~ to see the full range. Ooh also everything is fragrance free, which is fab as sometimes fragrances can be too intense. AMAZING thing also is that the whole range is vegan friendly & not tested on animals! WOO WOO! {also AMAZING ingredients within the skincare, but for a CHEAP price,yipeeee!!!}

Plump & Glow ; Serum-in-cream Moisturiser ~ This is great for popping on in the morning to give you a bit of a glow, as it suggests, {I’m very good at stating the obvious} but this is a dream, fab to pop on under your makeup for a glow from within kinda look, IDEAL! If I’m not wearing makeup too, it’s great to pop this on as it makes you look alive, and glowy.. ~have I said glowy yet?~ {price; £5}.

Pore Balance ; Super Detox Clay Mousse Face Mask ~ Now I love a face mask, how do people get on without them? Who knows, they pick me up as well as my skin, so I was so excited to see this in the range. This one left my skin feeling amazing, was so soft and left me overall feeling pretty radiant! {price; £5}.

Maximum Moisture ; Moisture-Locking Everyday Moisturiser ~ This moisturiser is saving my skin at the moment! It’s theeee perfect consistency, and sinks in very well, doesn’t feel heavy or like wet on your face, ~I find that with a lot of moisturisers for dry skin~ it just works perfectly, and I’m finally glad to have found such a FAB budget moisturiser! {price; £5}.

Maximum Moisture ; Hydration On-the-go ~ Now for someone like me that has dryer skin, and sometimes a little dehydrated this is honestly a god send, you can use it under or over makeup on any little dry patches you have, the handy size means you can pop it in your bag and always use it throughout the day! Especially great for winter, forget gloves as a winter essential, get this! {price; £4}.

Sleep Spa ; Sleeping Face Mask ~ Anything that works through the night is ideal if you’re feeling a little lazy with skincare ~ahem, yes sarah you~ because you whack it on and don’t have to worry about it, just reap the rewards in the morning. This overnight mask has really made my skin look glowy and super soft when I’ve woke up, it’s super hydrating which is perfect for my skin in particular! {price; £5}. ~probably my fav from the range~

Sleep Spa ; Every Night Eye Mask ~ I mean I constantly have eye bags, whether I sleep, drink water, use eye cream, I guessed I was just ever so kindly blessed with them. So this product intrigued me, something that’s going to work on my eyes overnight? sounds a dream right, well it is! I mean my eye bags haven’t gone, let’s be real, but my eyes have been so much brighter on the mornings!! {price; £4}. 

Sleep Spa ~ Overnight Lip Mask ~ Ah I bloody love this, an overnight lip mask is just what I need in these coming winter months! It’s a lovely thick, but not sticky balm, with a gorg pinky tint. You can of course wear it through the day too, I just pop a little less on. When I’ve used this I’ve woke up with super soft lips, which is exactly what I want. This is deffo going to be a new favourite that I won’t be able to live without! {price; £4}.

My Thoughts

So you should be able to remember Woolworths, it was the shop of dreams when I was little, so I was very excited to read this because it takes you back to that shop, especially around Christmas. This book was set in the war time and revolves are the girls that work there, and what is going on with there lives! It’s such a cosy read, it’s lovely as it’s a follow on as well so reading a new one is like catching up with everyone and I love that! My grandma has read the previous ones too and she loved them, so I’m going to lending this one to her so she can read and catch up also! They’re the kind of books that absolutely any age will love! I highly encourage you to pick the first one up and give it a read, you’ll not regret it! Purchase the book from Amazon ~here~!
