#Bloggersdoitbetter twitter chat!

Hi everyone, just a short and sweet post today!

 I thought since the #Bloggersdoitbetter twitter chat has been going so well and I have loved chatting to everyone that has taken part so far, I have made some really good friends already and hope that some more people will start to join in! 

If you have any topic suggestions I would love to hear from you! 

Mio Destino - Classic lovely black bra and string


What you wear under your clothes is as important as the clothes you're wearing, having the right foundations make everything look better! Always make sure your underwear fits you like a dream and most importantly makes you feel confident!





My ever expanding underwear collection I have nude bras for white tops, black strapless bras for dresses, neon yellow ones and now I've found the perfect black bra to add to my collection!



The fit of the bra* is great for cleavage, but I'd recommend going up a cup size if you're planning on wearing this bra regularly. The fit around the bust is great, it's really comfortable and the centre sits nice and flat against my body. The straps are really comfortable too and can be adjusted to your perfect fit, the straps are also removable so If your wearing a dress with no straps you can remove the bra straps too, the only down side to that is that it has weakened the straps a bit. 


It has removable padding so you can add a little more cleavage if you feel like it, or remove for more of an every day bra. The rose lace covers the cups and edges onto the straps, I love the detail in the set! The string* doesn't have the same amount of detail but it still looks nice!

The string fits well do and is good if your planning on wearing a little dress and don’t want the dreaded vpl line.. its never a good look!

#Bloggersdoitbetter DIY Lip scrubs!


Natural lip scrubs leave your pout soft, smooth, and lipstick ready! Even though it might be spring here in England It's still cold and it's windy, so I bet a lot of you are suffering from chapped lips because of the weather.

While I could have gone looking for store bought scrubs, I decided to make my own lip scrub instead! DIY beauty products are fun and inexpensive, after all, and you know exactly what's going into them.
The ingredients I used you will probably have in your kitchen right this very minute!

Ingredients:
1 tsp honey
1 tsp oil (either olive, almond or other of your choice)
1-2 tsp white or brown sugar (I prefer white as it exfoliates my lips better but either works just as well!)

Directions:
Blend all ingredients in a small container, measuring equal parts of each ingredient in your bowl. I like to make a two-use batch, so I combine about half a teaspoon of each ingredient. If you want more graininess, add in more sugar. Likewise, if you want a smoother batch, add more olive oil or honey.


And there you have it a simple easy way to make your own lipscrub! If you try it out at home let me know how you get on! Have you ever made your own lip scrub? Let me know in the comments below!

Pop Chips Review!

I was so excited when this box of pop chips popped through my door –Did you see what I did there haha!
They are thicker than your normal potato chip with a great crunch and more of an airy texture. One bag fills me up as a mid-day snack.


The flavours themselves have more of a kick to them so you can actually taste the flavour of the chips, personally I really liked this as with some chip crisps you don't really get a flavour but with these you do.
I would have to say the sea salt flavour is my favourite as it has plenty of flavour and is one of my favourites anyway, but I really liked it with the texture of the pop chips!
They are produced in the UK, and are available in Waitrose and WHSmith among others.


I felt there was a good amount in the bag, sometimes I feel you get short changed with bags of crisps and hardly get any.. I also felt like they didn't leave my hands too greasy after munching my way through a bag.


So, what makes Popchips a better snacking option to regular fried crisps? They're less than 100 calories per 23g bag, compared to normal fried crisps which can be anywhere between 130 to 270 calories, if not more. That is defiantely a plus.

Have you tried pop chips before? Let me know in the comments below!

#Bloggersdoitbetter Spring Memory!

Spring is one of my favourite times of the year its not quite summer but the nights are getting lighter and the flowers bloom! Every year around this time of year there is a balloon race and its lovely seeing all the different coloured balloons.





Me and my best friend went to the start of the race then went home to have a pamper session, we were in the middle of fake tanning when we saw one of the balloons had gone off track so we ran out the house and followed the balloon through the fields, it was not a good look fake tan on my legs and not blended in.. fair to say I looked like a tangerine!

But as we got closer we realised something was wrong and the balloon started to fall quickly out the sky so we ran even faster to get there and help! Luckily no one was hurt but we had to help get the balloon away!

We managed to get a quick picture aswell! Look how small I am! This was one of my favourite memory's because recently I moved so I don't see my best friend as often so its nice to still have the memory!


What's your favourite spring memory? Let me know in the comments below!
