live life ready with kalms

Today I want to chat anxiety, although 1 in 5 people suffer from it and struggle daily, not enough people really understand it at all, it’s so so important that it becomes an easy topic of conversation so people aren’t left feeling alone, if you are reading this and feeling like that please reach out to someone, anyone, even me!

I’ve teamed up with Kalms to chat all things anxiety and show you some of their very own lavender capsules that are specifically designed to help you cope with your anxiety! I also have a little giveaway which I’ll chat more about towards the end..

So if you don’t know much about Kalms themselves, I’ll tell you a little bit about them. They have a range of herbal tablets that help anxiety, stress, struggles with sleeping. They also have masses of information like the info you’ll see below, all about the different topics so head over to there website for a look, ~here~!

So anxiety can be brought on by various different things in our lives, some of those are losing someone close to you, feeling lonely, work stress, financial problems, over worrying, childhood experiences, and many more. The photo below has some great facts on about anxiety, and also shares some of the physical feelings and things you think about if you’re struggling with anxiety.

Now I do myself suffer with anxiety, it very much goes up and down, I’ve had some massively hard times, but I’m not going to nitty gritty into my personal experience as it’s still very much something I’m trying to learn to get better with, but I’m sure one day I can share it all!

Kalms themselves have a new product for us suffering with anxiety in the form of a one-a-day lavender capsule! This is a very new discovery for the UK, also the results of 15 clinical trials have shown that these capsules can relive the symptoms of anxiety.

So there we have the capsules pictured above, these are a traditional herbal product as I said that relive the symptoms of anxiety. Within the pack you get a 2 weeks supply, which you take one a day. I find for me lavender is very calming, so these do wonders. You can buy them in most stores and pharmacies, here’s a lil link to purchase them ~here~!

So the giveawaaay WOO! I am giving away a Kalms mindfulness journal & pen, plus Fearne Cotton’s Calm book (which I have & LOVE!) All you have to do to enter this giveaway is leave a comment saying how YOU are going to raise awareness of anxiety and use the #LiveLifeReady? E.g ‘Talk to your friends to make sure they’re ok #LifeLifeReady’. GOOD LUCK 🙂 *the winner will be chosen & contacted on the 17/11/2018*.


the curve fashion festival

I am a huge fashion fan and when I heard about this festival it just sounded amazing, especially that it’s for curvy fashion?! Thankfully nowadays we live in a world with curvy models, and thin models, any models, all sizes and shapes. But this festival of all things curvy fashion has now hit it’s fourth year, and I have some exciting things to tell you about it!


So where is it at & when you ask? Well Liverpool, it will be held in St Georges Place, Liverpool, which is great! There’s plenty of different ways of getting there, and it’s pretty easy to find. I’ll link the page ~here~ so you can see the venue for yourself and find out how to get there. The date it’s on is the 17th November 2018 and you can buy your tickets ~here~!

What is there to do there you ask? So you can of course watch the catwalk, you can meet some celeb guests, you can chat and buy from the brilliant well known brands that will be there, such as ; BooHoo, M&S, New Look & Debenhams.

So as I just mentioned Debenhams will be there, last year they were promoting their beauty range, which is AMAZING, I’ve always headed to Debenhams when I need some beauty bits because they have such a huge variety, something for literally everyone, and they have points systems and always fab offers! So I defiantly wish I’d been there last year looking through all their beauty bits! Have a lil browse of the makeup range they have ~here~!

But this year Debenhams will be back of course talking all things lingerie, how fab!? Sometimes it’s hard to find lingerie that fits well and it can feel awkward to get measured but at the TCFF everyone will be there to help and make you feel at ease! They have an absolute huge range, which is important because for me generally it can be hard to find bras that are comfy for larger boobs! Have a lil browse at the lingerie collection they have ~here~!


blog tour ; the dream wife ~ louisa de lange

Here I am involved in another blog tour, a very exciting one may I add, this is for the debut novel by Louisa de Lange, called The Dream Wife, so let’s get into it!


Annie is the dream wife. Supportive, respectful, admiring – everything her husband wants her to be. And nothing at all like who she really is . . .

Annie is a prisoner in her own life. Her finances, her routine and her contact with the outside world are all controlled. Annie’s only reason for holding it together is her little boy. Her time with him keeps her sane, and at night she escapes into a dream world where the two of them are free.

But Annie is about to do a very bad thing.

And you won’t believe how she is going to do it…

My Thoughts 

I must say I am already very excited to see what other amazing books Louisa is going to produce, because this was utterly incredible. I’m not normally a reader of thrillers but I could not put this book down at all, I had to keep reading, with all the twists and turns unfolding before me. The two main characters Annie and David, you very quickly begin to despise David as you find is very controlling and his mother is all for him and on his side, which makes everything worse for Annie herself. All I can say is READ IT, to find out what happens with there story I can’t possibly spoil it.

BLOG TOUR ; friendship never ends ~ ella dyson

So, ( !! exciting !! ) I’m a part of the blog tour, for the new release by Ella Dyson, called Friendship never ends, which is being released on the 27th of September.



A big-hearted comedy about friendship, the 90s and the greatest girl band in the world

Three independent women – and one man who lives for drama – haven’t spoken to their best friend in 20 years, after an epic talent show disaster tore them apart during the height of Spice-mania.

Self-appointed gang leader Carmen then decided to go it alone – Geri style. But now, in 2018, the school reunion is fast approaching. Friendship Never Ends tells the story of Carmen’s plan to win back her former besties – Jemma, Ellie, Laura and Benny – ahead of the big night. But has Carmen really changed? And can their friendship ever really go back to how it was?

My Thoughts 

Oh, I loved this! It’s the perfect book that zooms you to the 90s and friendship! The main characters are Sarah (good name), Laura, Gemma, Benny and Carmen. They form a Spice Girls tribute band, called The Spice Rack. But as the years go by drift apart, of course as life generally happens but they come back together for a final concert together. I loved getting to know each of the characters. Would highly recommend this to any 90s kids, or anyone that loves that pop culture!

★★★★☆ ~ 4/5

BLOG TOUR ; The Anniversary ~ Hilary Boyd

So, ( !! exciting !! ) I’m a part of the blog tour, for the new release by Hilary Boyd, called The Anniversary, which has been re-released on the 20th September 2018, it was originally published in 1953.42505253_785170751827038_2026735019044634624_n.jpg


Is the one you tried to forget the one you can’t live without?

Stella once thought that if she never saw Jack again, it would be too soon.

But life has other plans for her and her stubborn, handsome ex-husband. 

Looking after their daughter in a time of need, Stella finds herself unwillingly reunited with the man she shared the best years of her life with – followed by the worst.

Where tragedy once tore them apart, now Stella and Jack are being drawn back together. But each of them has a new partner and a new life.

Should the fight temptation?

Should the past remain the past?

Or are some loves simply meant to be? 

My Thoughts

This books was honestly amazing, so emotional I can’t even tell you. I enjoyed it from start to finish. At first I was a little worried it would be just lovey dovey, which I’m not into, and it was in places, but defiantly about a lot more, as there’s so much going on for all the characters. The main characters are Stella and Jack, the book starts in June 1985 where Jack proposes to Stella, but then it moves to present where they are divorced and with new partners. Through the book you find out why the separated, due to such a tragic incident, and how many years later they got brought back together.

★★★★☆ ~ 4/5
