Nip + Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix Pads: Review

My first ever beauty review and I decided to review my recent purchase of the Nip + Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix pads. I spotted them on offer whilst browsing the aisles of my local Superdrug in York. I have always admired the range and this was one of the first products that I spotted that I immediately wanted to buy and try out.

The product review on the Nip + fab site and on the side of the product states that the pad’s should “refresh and smooth skin, cleanse your pores and provide long lasting hydration to help your skin appear plumper.” I would absolutely agree that after a few days of using these my skin definitely felt smoother and also gave my skin a better complexion. I have really problematic skin and have to be careful what products I use, so I was relieved they didn’t irritate me instead.

I also felt like my skin had more elasticity and did look that bit plumper which is great as my skin can sometimes look a bit dulled out. Overall I was more than impressed with the pads and will definitely look to purchase them again.

My immediate thought when I saw these beauties on the shelf was in relation to game of Thrones and all fans out there will understand. I felt like a Khaleesi using these on myself.

It’s a New Year, Welcome to 2015!

2015 New Year celebration

We are 2 days into 2015 and I haven’t posted for a couple of weeks. I do apologize for this but its been a busy couple of weeks with work and visiting lots of family, and this is the first time I’ve been able to sit down for an extended time at my laptop.

I hope everyone’s New Year was amazing 🙂 I spent mine with the other half and friends in the local pub until about 11pm then went home and put some buffet nibbles in the oven to ring in the bells with food and prosecco. Lovely way to spend the new year with the bf.

I wanted to write this blog post to tell people about my 2015 plans.

1. To blog more frequently and tweak my blog as my head’s been buzzing with ideas lately.
2. To get a step up on the career ladder. (v.important indeed)
3. To move into our 1st home.
4. To still go away and already I have a holiday lined up and another one in the works.
5. To enjoy every single day…

This is my 5 point plan and no doubt it will be a bigger list by the end of the year. Please comment or tweet me with your plans as well @lauraknowslife

Christmas Party

So on Saturday (the 20th) it was my work’s Xmas do! We had a lovely night at the Hilton and spread ourselves over 2 tables. We had buckets of beer on the table and several bottles of wine as well. It was a retro night ranging from music of the 60’s to the 90’s. Needless to say, I was waiting for the Vengaboys and then 1 after the other we had vengaboys, Spice Girls and PJ and Duncan. Amazing! I danced my feet off and felt the pain in the tootsies the next day. here are a few piccies of my night.
