Aloe Vera Gel, and how it’s helped me!

Hi everyone,

I’ve never done a post like this before, but I feel like this one would be a good one for me to try and accomplish! I also want to let you in on this product as well!

So recently, I’ve been struggling with hair loss from my eyebrows! So much so, that I now have bald patches at both ends of an eyebrow! I had a look online, and seen the brands such as ‘Rapidbrow’ and others, which cost an arm and a leg, for a product that in reality is only going to last a couple of weeks.

So instead of searching for brow products, I changed my search to things that help your eyebrows grow, and straight away, it said “Aloe Vera gel”. I turned to my mum at this point, and said “I can only try it really can’t I?” So I researched to where did pure aloe Vera gel, as I didn’t want one that was only 90%, I wanted the real deal! And I seen that Holland and Barrett had them, in two different sizes – a 100ml one and a 200ml one, however when I got to the store, there was only the 100ml one left! So I decided just to get that one and trial how it went!

I’ve had this gel for just over a week now, and still have so much left, as you only need a little bit, as it goes a long way. I started using a mascara wand at first to brush through my eyebrows, but now I just use it on my fingers, so that it’s like a coating! and honestly, I can really see a result, little hairs are starting to come back through my eyebrows, so I can’t wait to see the progress in a couple of weeks!

There is also another benefit guys! When I was reading about the benefits of Aloe Vera, it also said it helps with Acne and Scarring, so I have also been using the aloe Vera on my spots on my face, and I can’t believe how good my face looks honestly! I can’t wait to try it when a new spot appears, to see the benefits on this!

I haven’t tried it on scarring, as I don’t have any, but I feel that it would benefit this a lot too!

I will now post the link to the product, as I really recommend it to anyone, whether for eyebrows and eyelashes, acne or scarring!

Thank you all for reading this post, and I will hopefully post more content like this soon,

My experiences with Lip Fillers

Hi everyone,

I know it’s been a long time since I last did a post, but I’ve just taken a short break, as I’ve had problems with my health, and I’ve been struggling for ideas, but I’ve found the perfect idea today, so I’m back with this post.

Today I went and got infills in my lip fillers. I realise that at the moment, there has been a lot of craze about fillers in general and that to most people it’s like a fashion trend. However, that is not the case for me, and I just wanted to share my experience with you all. I noticed in my smile that there was like a curvy line, which showed my teeth, which I hate, and I wanted the fillers to correct this. I have calcium deposits on my teeth, which are like spots that have been created by milk/calcium products.

This was me before lip fillers, this is from about 5 years ago, so ignore 18 year old me, but it shows the gap in my smile – I’m on the left:

I first got lip fillers at the end of may. I had 1ml, which was 0.5ml to create the outside of my lip, and 0.5 ml to fill the inside of my lip. This would not be a great difference to the lip, as there was not much product in them, but straight away I loved the difference that I had seen and I got addicted straight away! Because of my age, I was told to rebook in the next 3-4 months, as it is only semi-permanent, so it doesn’t last forever, and because I was younger, I have a faster metabolism.

This was after my first filler:

cat

I have only just gone back for my refill. She used Juvederm ultra this time, instead of Restylane, which she used the last time to create the structure of my lips, so she changed this to create more volume in my lips. She used the 1ml just into the centre of my lips this time, concentrating on my top lip to help to fill the gap. So I’m looking forward to seeing the difference.

My lips are quite swollen at the moment, but once they are settled, I will update you more on my smile.

I have had a lot of people telling me not to mess with my face, and asking me why I do this, but I am doing this for me – my confidence, that’s all that should matter, if it makes me feel confident, why should it matter? Do what you want, you are in control of yourself!

Behind the Scenes of a Blogger

Hi everyone,

Firstly I would like to thank Byroni Burns for the nomination! I have been nominated to do the #Behindthescenesofablogger challenge!

Here we go!

What Inspired you to create a blog and publish blog posts?

I have always loved the idea of blogging and creating my own posts. Reading other people’s posts also inspired me to just write things that mean a lot to me.

How long have you been blogging for?

I have been blogging on wordpress since May, so only 3 months. However, I had a blogger website which I created around July last year, but I wanted to change to wordpress as it seemed so much easier to use.

Have you had any other blogging websites?

Yes Blogger, I also use Tumblr, and have done since I was around 14/15 years old, so just under 10 years.

Where do you see yourself and your blog in 5 years time?

I really want my blog to grow, and for me to finally be self hosted, just need to find the right site!

What message are you trying to get across within your blog posts?

To blog about what you love, don’t just blog about anything! Also to post about things that will interest others, including photo’s!

Do people from school, college, uni or work find your blog?

No one from College has found my blog, however, my friend from school found it on my twitter, and my family and friends aswell!

What does your username mean?

So, it’s simple, but naturally I’m a brunette, and I loved being tanned, so… yeah! However, I have recently had a bayalage in my hair, and it’s now blonde towards the bottom, so do I keep my name or change it?

Who are your favourite bloggers? 

Sarah Ashcroft was the first and main blogger to inspire me! I’m so happy she has recently brought her blog back again!

Laura is another blogger. I initially asked her for advice when starting my blog. Her blog is lovely!

Here are my nominations:

1. Sam

2. Jess

3. Becca

Nominate up to 10 people, look forward to reading your answers!

Hope you’ve enjoyed reading this!

Gran Canaria 2018👫☀️💕

Hi everyone,

I’m sorry it’s been a while since I promised this blog post, but I’ve just been so busy with college work and exams!

As some of you may know I went to Gran Canaria, and had the most amazing time away! I just want to be back there now, it was the best holiday I’ve ever had with my love! I’ve decided I definitely want to get my Palm Tree tattoo done now after this holiday!

This year, we decided to go away for 2 weeks, as we’ve done 7 days and 10 days before, so we thought we’d be better doing 2 weeks, and it was well worth it!

Anyway, let’s get onto it!

We flew on the Monday, and started the day with a lovely breakfast at the airport. I had never tried Eggs Benedict, but really wanted too! And oh my god! They were amazing!! Would definitely recommend if you’re a foodie like me!

We booked with TUI, I have never flown with them, but so glad I did! We went on the dreamliner plane, and it was lovely! The staff were all so nice, and the plane was comfortable, and actually enjoyable! And we got to watch a film in front of us, which is amazing! So of course I watched the Greatest Showman!

We stayed in a place called Mas Palomas, in San Bartolomé Tirijana! The location was perfect, we were a short walk away from the beach, local shops and restaurants, and a place called the Yumbo Centre, which I will talk about later!

This was our hotel, Clubhotel Riu Papayas! It was such a beautiful hotel, such lovely staff and entertainment at night for all ages! And for all inclusive, the food was amazing! If you go on much All inclusive holidays, you will know how rubbish the food is, but here, the food was so lovely, and varied, and they also had two other restaurants within the hotel, a Spanish restaurant – Olé, and an Asian restaurant – Zhu!

Spanish restaurant:

Asian Restaurant:

My boyfriend has already been to Gran Canaria before, so luckily he also could tell me where is good to go, and he recommended this Sandwich place – sounds weird right? But it was actually amazing, the sandwiches were like €1, and they did a deal for a sandwich and a beer, which obviously he was impressed about! They did sweet and savoury sandwiches, which is even better!! It’s called 100 Montaditos and they have a few in different countries around Spain, so I would definitely recommend going!!

We were quite lucky, as because we were all inclusive, it gave us the option whether to stay in for food, or go out and have food!

We found a place which we fell in love with, an Irish Bar of course, thanks to me! Called Mulligan’s! We enjoyed it so much that we came here a few nights, some for food and drinks, and some for just drinks! And the portion sizes are unreal!!

The Yumbo Centre is also another place I would recommend to go! It’s a party centre, but the drag shows there are amazing and there’s lots of lovely places to eat there! Even places for coffee and ice cream!

Royal:

Wapa Tapa:

Definitely recommend this place! The staff are so lovely, just make sure you book before hand! We came here twice!!

Cafe bar:

We also went to Palomas Park, which I have already spoken about in my post here:

https://bronzedbrunettex.wordpress.com/2018/08/09/dolphins🐬💕/

One of the highlights of my holiday was booking the most romantic restaurant and doing a wine tasting menu!

Now I don’t like wine, just the occasional glass of white now and again! But the food was sensational – since being with my boyfriend, I have become more adventurous with food, and these pictures can prove this! The restaurant was called 360 and is above a hotel called Bohemia Suites and Spa!

360:

I apologise for all the pictures of food in this post! But I hope you have all enjoyed this post,

Sorry it’s late!

Talk again soon,

Dolphins🐬💕

Hi everyone,

As some of you know, I have spent the last 2 weeks away in Gran Canaria!

A highlight of my holiday was going to Palmitos Park! This is basically like a Zoo, you can watch shows, and see loads of animals, and I had to go because I found out there were Dolphins!!

Ever since being a baby, I have loved Dolphins, so much so that when I was little, my bedroom was like an ocean! Sea wallpaper, and matching duvet! Dolphin ornaments and wind chimes aswell! I know, a tad obsessed right! I was only a child though, to be fair!

It was the best experience of my life though! I cried the whole way through! And I even got to have a picture with a Dolphin!!

The pictures cost me €30, as I got to kiss the Dolphin aswell, but honestly, I would pay so much more, being that close to a Dolphin is honestly the best experience ever!!

I would definitely recommend coming here if you go to Gran Canaria! It is really affordable, and honestly a good day out for all ages! I will show you some of the photos and video’s I took whilst I was there!

It also had a lovely restaurant aswell, where we had some lunch! I was surprised because the portion sizes were good aswell, and the food was just beautiful!

We had the Caesar Salad!

The only thing we missed was the Tropical Birds show, but you had to sit down to watch the show, and by this point it was already like 2:30, and where you sit, the seats are open into the sun! So you can imagine how hot the seats were, as it must have been about 35 degrees atleast!!

It wasn’t a major thing though, as you could see the birds as you walked around!

This was honestly one of the best days of my life! And if I could do it again, I would do it 100x over!!

Hope you have enjoyed reading this, and look out for my blog post about my holiday in Gran Canaria coming soon!

Talk soon,

Sunshine Blogger Award!

I want to thank Stralthy for the nomination! It means a lot when people think of me, and nominate me for these!

Here are the questions I have been asked!

  • 1 What is your zodiac sign? Do you identify with it?
  • I’m an Aries!
  • I relate to these:
  • They’re good friends, they always look out for their friends with caring and generosity and will protect them should the need arise and encourage them with their natural optimism. If confronted, they can turn to be quite childish, will fight back with their agressive nature and are known to have temper tantrums should they not get their way.

  • Underneath the strong, independent surface may lie insecurity. This is due to the intense drive to succeed and they put too much pressure on themselves, thus resulting in self-doubt however, the natural optimism and enthusiasm overtakes this and the underlying insecurity may never be known to others.

  • 2 Name 2 books that truly impressed you.
  • I really need to start reading more books, but I enjoyed reading Charlotte Crosby’s books! And Holly Hagan’s book was a good read too!
  • 3 Tell me 3 apps from your phone that you think are very useful.
  • I only really use like Social Media apps! I think my WordPress app is useful though, and Canva for blogging purposes!
  • 4 Who did you come up with your blog name?
  • I wanted a blog name personal to me! I love being bronzed, and I’m a brunette!
  • 5 Do your friends/family know about your blog / others social media? (if yes, what do they think about it, if no why did you decide to keep it private)
  • I tell everyone about my blog, because I enjoy doing it, I just need to be more confident about it and myself!
  • 6 If you could skip the next 5 years, would you do it? Explain your answer.
  • Definitely not! I enjoy living each moment and each day, and I would miss vital things if I skipped it!
  • 7 What animal do you wish you could transform into and why?
  • I really love dolphins! They’re my fav animal, they’re so peaceful and free, so I would transform into one!
  • 8 Favorite quote?
  • “Happiness isn’t something you put inside, it’s already there. Sometimes you just need someone to help you find it.” – Trolls
  • 9 What did you dreamt to be when you were little?
  • Sounds weird, but I wanted to be a fairy or a princess like most Little girls want to be! I then realised I wanted to be a teacher! That all back failed though, when I went for a Uni interview, and it’s put me off ever since! So thanks for nothing Manchester Met!
  • 10 Any advice you would like to share with smaller bloggers?
  • Just do you, don’t worry about what others think! And don’t concentrate too much on numbers, views, followers etc! If people love your blog, that’s all that matters! Don’t try to copy other bloggers either! Try and talk from your own experiences!
  • 11 Answer truly: are you happy?
  • I can’t say that I’m 100% happy with everything at the minute, but where I am right now, and what I’m working towards, I’m happy with at the minute!
  • My questions are:
    1. When did you start blogging and why?
      Is there anything you would like to work on, either about yourself or your blog?
      What are your strengths and weaknesses?
      What is your favourite thing ever? Or is there anything you are passionate about?
      If you could only choose one thing to have for the rest of your life, would you choose to be able to travel unlimitedly, or to have the most amazing, home and lifestyle?
      If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
      Is there any foods, you would not ever try?
