Too Much is Not Enough

Over the past couple of weeks myself and Catherine (Vintage Frills) have been a little bit naughty in the beauty department. Spending madly instead of thrifting and with what seems like an unhealthy addiction to Treacle Moon’s delectably scented bath products.

final tesco haul

Even though there are a lot of sale BARGAINS right there all of those £1 items really do add up. My bill for the whole kit and caboodle was approximately £30 as I also purchased some food items whilst out shopping. Now you may think this is ok if I am stocking up for a nuclear war, buying for presents or just not planning on buying for another decade – well I am NOT!

From Bubble Bath to Beauty Mags it really seems like too much is not enough. Well we have both agreed to curb the spending and become thrift mongers over the next ‘many’ months in an effort to save for our separate goals which will all be revealed later this year.

I will be making a barometer to track my savings and will post it as I steadily (and hopefully) increase my wedge! I won’t be putting how much I have saved as that is private but at least you can see my progress if any is made and if not send me some shouty CAPITALS to get my derrière into gear to keep it up.

Back to work for me today and apologies for the lack of posts. I am starting my Wicked Valentine’s Read-a-thon today and will be making time to read more from now until the 17th. Check out My Shelf Confession’s blog to find out more about it and even join in.

Any plans for the big Valentine’s Day guys? Or something that is not related at all?

Treacle Moon – One Ginger Morning

Ginger wake up shower gel

The past couple of weeks have been a little full on so having the chance to kick back, relax and have a bubble bath with a book is a bonus. Especially when the bubbles last a while. Even for a refreshing shower this big bottle of love is just wonderful. The packaging is pretty, practical and easily storable. It is also durable as it is waterproof so no soggy edges of cardboard to get soggy. An easy open lid for those with stiff fingers and an easy squeeze bottle to get out the gorgeous contents.

The gel itself holds its colour when out of the bottle and is nice and thick. The bubbles once lathered are pretty immense and you only need a little bit to go a long way. The smell does not hit your nose immediately and is far from sickly. Whilst lathering up you will notice a build up of the smell sensation and gradually the ginger infuses with the hot water and takes to the air. The formula is not sticky and does not leave a residue once washed off, it is also nice that it does not leave your skin dry when you are finished bathing. The one other thing that really impressed me with this product is the fact that having really sensitive skin means that the number of beautifully scented products I can use is extremely limited. I can safely say that my skin has been softer than ever and not a spot of irritation. I cannot confirm that it is suitable for all skin types but it suited my highly sensitive skin just fine.

You can find this lovely product either at Treacle Moon or Tesco (exclusively made for Tesco! Swit Swoo!)

£2.99 for 500ml is a very good bargain!



worthy fix

jordans 1st pair

After returning from the US with this truly AWESOME pair of Jordan’s they are all I want to wear. Sadly they do not go with everything and I don’t want to wear them out quickly so they do go back in the box every now and then!

If you have Jordan’s – How do you wear yours? If you don’t buy some because they are über comfortable!

Skin Care

Ginger wake up shower gel

This delectable bathroom goody has made me want more than the regular three showers a day (it may seem excessive to some but oh well!). Have you tried it?

Hair Care


These bad boys have not only tamed my locks but also kept away the split ends and made my hair feel sleek. Very happy at the moment!

Listening to . . .

This is the clean version of the tune as I thought it was only appropriate for the blog. However if you would like to watch the original then please do find it on You Tube!
I listen to a variety of music but this song right now has made a regular recurrence on my playlist. What is on yours?



This show is highly addictive and there is something that I cannot identify about Benedict Cumberbatch that is just so HOT!

How is your Monday panning out?

Do let me know 😀monday love!
