Neal's Yard Remedies- Power Berry Daily Moisture REVIEW

The product came free with 'In Style' Magazine (July 2013) and to be honest I only brought the magazine for the freebie.

I've been using the moisturizer morning and evening for the past week and a half. The claim 'Antioxidant-rich Acai, Bilberry and Goji berry help fight the effects of free radicals for brighter, dewy-looking skin' I personally haven't noticed much change in my skins dewiness or it looking any brighter than usual.
The moisturizer has an amazing minty fresh smell which would be quite off putting if you don't like the smell of mint but i personally love it, the scent does stay on the skin for quite a while which I suppose is a bad thing as you wouldn't really want anyone coming up to you and smelling your face.

The consistency is thin and runny so its probably best used if you have normal to slightly dry skin as I feel its not best used on oily skin as it will make it look shinier. As the product is quite runny it does come out rather quickly resulting in a massive waste.

I can't complain too much as it was a freebie and I will use it until it runs out but I won't be buying it again as I feel it hasn't made a huge or noticeable difference to my skin.

My Australian Dream!

Australia will always be a place I love! Even though I've only been there once, I plan to visit a lot more in the future and I also plan that one day I will live over there.I have family in down in Oz which I suppose is probably the reason I'm so fascinated by the country.

I can't help but stalk my cousins Facebook and Instagram pictures (sorry) because I just love the lifestyle and fashion that Australia has.

Although many people think that the U.K has a many different fashion cultures I think that the Australians are far better and a lot more interesting and inspiring.
English fashions shows usually have the same old clothes a parka, an oversized tee, vintage looking jeans, a statement accessory and a ridiculously sized bag either huge or tiny (no where near practical for everyday life), where as the Australian fashions shows always have something new (which is slightly owed to the weather, I know) whether its a bold cami or a pair of shorts that will show off the perfect all year tan the Ozzie style is far younger a fresher looking.

The Australian lifestyle makes the English lifestyle look boring and plain! The Australians can surf in a warm clean sea without worrying if you'll need a wetsuit to stop you from freezing or if there is any sewage floating around your feet as you dip a toe in to check the temperature.
Although the U.K has more historical sights (which cost an arm and a leg to get into) the Ozzie's can just sit in a park field with a few friends and still have a good time as the weather will be GREAT and look good just sitting in a group having a laugh.

The early dark winter evenings in a English winter are enough to make anyone want to emigrate to the land down under and soak up the sun on a warm Australian winter evening. You are far more likely to spend time with family and friends if the weather was nicer and the days lasted longer in the winter.

The Australian lifestyle is far more laid back unlike us brits who can't seem to go out without making a huge deal and dressing like we are about to walk the red carpet when we are only going to the local, which just sets us up for disappointment when the night just drifts by. The Ozzies can go out dressed casual and will have a far better night as there wasn't too much planning involved in what they wore.

Beaches, Australia defiantly wins this! The weather obviously helps this as there is more opportunities to just spend a day at the beach but also the cleanliness of the beaches is a lot better than the U.K. The sand isn't rubbish strewn and the sea isn't full of sewage and litter. The sea is a lot clearer and a far nicer shade of light blue unlike the British dark blue/grey/green sea we are all used to seeing.

You can travel to the other side of Oz and it will be like visiting a totally different country not only weather wise but culturally and environmentally where as Britain is the same all over a field, council estate, a lake, a wood, a town or city,a smelly harbor, and a farm.

In my conclusion and my opinion of life.. Life is so short and it only happens once. So why waste it in a cold wet country making a small amount of money instead of living in paradise and having more time to spend outside living life to the fullest?

Stood up

Being stood up is probably one of the worst things things that could happen to someone not only is it embarrassing but it also leaves you feeling degraded and unwanted. 

I experienced my first ever 'stand up' last week I was supposed to meet a boy who I had met before so I was defiantly not expecting to be left waiting for 2 hours. 

We had been planning to meet up for a couple of weeks and when the day came we text the whole morning. We had agreed to meet at half 12 in town. 

I got off the bus and walked to where we were going to meet he wasn't there but I thought 'oh he will only be a couple of minutes late' so I waited for 10 minutes before I text him asking what time he would be here but after half an hour I hadn't got a reply. 

I then text again asking when he would be here but still no reply. 

I sat in town for 2 hours on my own convinced that he would turn up but finally I gave in and got the bus home. 

I could not stop crying that night I felt like I wasn't good enough for him or he was too embarrassed to be seen with me. 

The worst thing is I can't be sure that him and his friends weren't say somewhere watching me and laughing at how stupid I could be for waiting that long. 

Almost a week later I still haven't got a reply but luckily I've found someone else who actually will turn up when we agree to see each other but I know if I hadn't found the other person I would still cry about being stood up and I wouldn't be able to move on for ages. 

Hopefully I won't have an awkward 'bump into' with the boy and hopefully I won't have to see him again.
