Surviving Summer with Optrex and a Giveaway!

It's hard to enjoy Summer when every time you step out of the house you're constantly crying, sneezing, finding it difficult to breathe, or all three. Alfie and I have so much in common, including hayfever and I can't say I like that. It's a bit weird to be writing about how much I've enjoyed washing my eyes out, but I seriously have. I've been away quite a lot recently, and I've took my eyedrops along every single time, they've even taken up a semi-permanent residence at Alfie's house whilst we house sit.

I don't usually get excited about something like this, but I seriously cannot stop reaching for them, they're honestly a daily essential and now I cannot imagine my day without using them. I've had a bundle from Optrex to try out and I'm giving the same products away to one lucky reader too! You'll have to be in the UK and follow a couple rules to enter, so good luck!

The Optrex Rehydrating Eye Drops have by far been my favourites. They instantly make my eyes feel soothed, awake and hydrated. As I use the computer so much, or my phone, or even the laptop like right now, my eyes do feel really tired and dry which means these drops help lubricate my eyes by replenishing my tears in just 1-2 drops! My second favourites definitely have to be the Optrex Eyedew Dazzling, as they really make your eyes pop. I remember using these a few years ago and I just loved how sparkly they made me look, and they really make eye makeup look so much better. It's all because of a intelligent blue ingredient which helps to make your eyes look whiter and sparkle the night away.

Curvissa Floral Summer Tea Dress

Usually, I'll only go for dresses in the style that I would usually wear, but in the blogging world, you can't always do that. Why you may ask? Well, simply because sometimes companies want certain dresses promoted and you have to choose between them. Not normally information that I would divulge, but more often that not, it leads to trying different styles that you wouldn't usually and ones that actually work really well. You should all know me by now, I'm a blabber mouth and I'll share the secrets of how things work without hesitating.

In this case, I can't be annoyed at how the blogging system works as I actually love how this dress works on me. This Curvissa Floral Summer Tea Dress is shockingly lovely, on the website I was a little skeptical, but it was the only thing I thought I could make work. Gifi has taught me about the importance of shoulder pads, and this dress could definitely do with them, but thankfully in the photos, my shoulders played game and puffed themselves out properly. I'm 5'3 and the length is debatable, I'll only go legging-less if a dress comes below the knee because of factors like the wind and dignity. However, this is just ON the knee, so for someone taller, it might be an issue. The waist area is quite long, which on a fat person, usually does not work well, so I did have to tie the belt tightly and higher this up a tad.

Blogging is Thirsty Work! Life Tonics, Ginger & Co and Scarlett & Jo!

I'm not one for loving canvas bags, mainly because I always carry too much and it spills out when I put them down anyway. However, seen as my muscles are pretty much gone (I'm obviously exaggerating, they're just weak), I can't carry much at all anymore, so I really loved having this 'Blogging is Thirsty Work' bag come through the door containing some Life Tonics and Ginger & Co products.


Ginger & Co has been on my blog before, they're the budget version of Soap and Glory with the same sort of vintage, fun packaging and incredible quality products at seriously affordable prices. I just love using their bath products and then smothering myself in their beautifully smelling creams afterwards. They're always on my shelf and even in my kitchen cupboard in case I can't be bothered to walk upstairs for them!


Life tonics, Ginger & Co

I took this bag with me during my trip to London when we visited IMATS, Lush and then on our last day, headed to Scarlett & Jo. I've wanted to head to Scarlett & Jo headquarters since first meeting Gifi after winning at the Plus Size Awards last year (quick plug, I'm up for 3 awards this year, please go vote for me!) It was everything I was expecting and more. A complete archive of every pint his company has ever used, Scarlett & Jo galore with past collections, current and future designs laid out for me to try on and play with. It was quite a hectic day too as it was just before Style XL and Gifi didn't realise he could have more people than just me on the catwalk (plus the thought terrified me!), which meant I spent most of the day tracking down the perfect people to wear the new collection and then matched them up with dresses.
