Dreams don’t always come true…

Dreams dont always come true...

It’s 2016 and it has been a while since I have posted. Apologies for my disappearance but 2015 sucked me in and now I am here.

I did a fair bit last year and a lot changed; I actually got accepted into my dream job but then I realised that the forces was no longer what I wanted from life.

Which was a rather shocking discovery – years spent dreaming and pursuing to discover what I wanted had changed and I would have to dream all over again.

But from what Disney taught me it’s okay if it doesn’t always work out the way you imagined, you’ll get your own happy ending eventually. And if that’s not something to strive for then I don’t know what is.

So here is to the new year and all it has to offer. It may be February tomorrow but months don’t matter and neither do days, just strive to do what you love and hopefully we all have a good year, even if nothing is accomplished.

The Birthday Gardner

It’s my Grandpa’s big 8-0 tomorrow and to help him celebrate in style we decided to get him a cake that incorporated his true love; gardening.

VGHS Season 3 Finale Review

Since Season 3 of Video Game High School (VGHS) has come to a close, I can’t help but wonder whether the series I have come to love has finally finished for good (unintentional rhyme there).

The creators of VGHS have created a universe that I am sure many people would love to live in; I know that I am definitely one of those people. I mean who wouldn’t want to go to a school mainly focusing on Video Games? Most people wouldn’t? Well they’re lying! I mean think how many games you’d get to play and how many achievements you’d unlock as a result. If that isn’t a life goal to strive towards then I don’t know what is!  They’ve created an incredible series with amazing cinematics and a wonderful script that I can’t get enough of.

So what happens in the finale?

Pre-Halloween Scares: Let’s Play from RT!

In preparation for Halloween tomorrow the awesome Adam and Joel with Blaine in tow on the camera; go to an abandoned and “haunted” asylum to play the hit horror game Outlast in this Halloween Special.  There are many girlish screams, terrified faces and what is for them an intense Let’s Play. Very entertaining to watch but I can’t help but feel sorry for them…however I’d rather it be them than me!
I also thought some of you might enjoy to watch it. 🙂

I think out of anything you can watch this Halloween, American Horror Story: Freak Show is probably one of the most disturbing and horrifying television series out there that is perfectly fitting.

But lets face it, you won’t be short of scares! Have a spooktacular Halloween filled with excitement and fear (of the fun kind) and I shall see you when all the skeletons, vampires (none of the sparkling kind I hope), cobwebs and tombstones have been tucked away for another year.

Haul of my Life: The Body Shop

The Body Shop Haul

Due to my skin having a catastrophic freak out lately causing me to sprout angry spots all over my face and after hearing such wonderful things about the Body Shop’s tea tree range, I thought I would give it a go. But during my purchasing I got a bit carried away and bought more than I bargained for. They had a lot of deals on so I would have been silly to pass up the opportunity to fix my skin.

The Body Shop’s focus is creating products that are “inspired by nature” and are very big on sourcing ingredients for their products through the Community Fair Trade program. I used to really love The Body Shop when I was younger so I am glad that I have once again relight the flame!

Here are the wonderful items I purchased:-

Body Shop Haul

Another great thing about The Body Shop is that if you join their clubcard scheme you get a free gift however there is a £5.00 fee for joining the scheme (so I suppose not entirely free). But the Warming Mineral Mask that I received retails at £10.00 so you are technically getting 50% off!

If you would wish for me to review any of the products in the picture above please let me know. Especially if you’d like to know if the tea tree range actually helps to combat breakouts and spots.

That’s all from me, I hope you had/have a lovely day.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] Review

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+]
One of this years most in demand products, praised worldwide by models and people alike, this little product is taking the world by storm. It helps correct the appearance of imperfections, even skin texture and unclog blocked pores”

I haven’t been using this for the longest period of time but like it states on the packaging – within 24 hours: imperfections look visibly less red” which was found by a cosmetoclinical study on 38 subjects.  I can also confirm from using this every night for the past few months just how true this is.

This little product truly is a miracle worker in a 40ml tube.  From a young age I have suffered with breakouts and acne prone skin, I have tried many spot combating products with many good results and some bad.  Some of the products I have used ended up bleaching every single towel in the house. But out of all the creams and lotions I have used, either prescribed by the doctor or bought at my local pharmacy this is by far my favourite.

I noticed within a few days of using this that my skin was slowly improving and within a matter of weeks my breakouts became less often to none existent.  Instead of waking up with greasy skin in the morning it would feel very matte, this is why the Effaclar Duo Plus can also be used as a primer.  Which I have also used it for; it not only keeps breakouts at bay throughout the day but also keeps makeup in place.  


I would suggest to anyone out there wanting to improve not only their skin condition but also any acne problems they may suffer with that this is the go to product.  It is priced at £15.50 which can seem a bit steep for spot cream but it is a multi-tasking genius so is worth the price tag.

However if you want something a little cheaper I will be testing The Body Shop Tea Tree Night Lotion which is priced at £9.00 and from the ratings has a great track record for helping improve breakouts and acne issues, if this seems more your price tag look out for my post on this item – coming soon. 🙂

You can pick this product up at your local Boots store or online here  —> www.boots.com/La-Roche-Posay-Effaclar-Duo along with several other outlets.  Let me know what you think of the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo [+] in the comment section below as I would leave to hear your opinion.

That’s all from me for today,

Megan x 🙂
