Lifestyle: A Peek In To My Life #5

Well hello there...

It's time for another peek in to my life post! Where I share my favourite beauty bits, TV shows, clothing items, food obsessions and more! If you missed my last one, check it out here.

Let's get started...
I'm a bit late to the Nakd bar party (I know, I couldn't resist)
I've seen fellow bloggers and YouTubers rave about these 'vegan, gluten and dairy free' bars, for sometime now.
I was reluctant to try them, as I don't have any food intolerances, so I thought if there's no dairy or gluten or anything in them, how on earth are they going to taste?
Well I tried them, and the verdict? AMAZING.
I have only tried a couple of bars from the range, Cocoa Crunch is my favourite!
I also like the Cocoa Delight and Cocoa Orange... there's a definite chocolatey theme going on here!
They aren't ever going to replace having a chocolate bar, but they are tasty, and have an almost cake like texture. I really like them, and for around 100 - 150 calories per bar, they make the perfect snack!
I definitely want to try more from the range, Cashew Cookie, Berry Delight and more of the crunch bars, are on my to-try list.

2. Warehouse 13
The Netflix addiction continues...
Since me and my boyfriend got Netflix a couple of months ago, we have been working our way through box sets.
Our latest favourite is Warehouse 13.
It's a show about two Secret Service agents, Pete and Myka, who get 'chosen' to join Warehouse 13.
A secret Government facility located in South Dakota, of all places!
Their job? To snag, bag and tag mysterious and historical artefacts, which can (and probably will) have devastating, funny, crazy and even deadly repercussions, if they land in the wrong hands.
It's a funny, clever and adventurous show.
Definitely worth a watch!
If you don't have Netflix, I have linked the DVD box set above.

3. Primark Pyjamas
Every time I pop in to my local Primark, I always make a bee line for the pyjama section.
I practically live in my pj's when I'm hanging out at home. I love novelty ones, cosy ones, pretty patterned ones, you name it.
I picked up these two pairs recently, and I love them both!
I love wearing short sets as the weather is getting warmer, it can get quite stuffy in bed.
The doughnut ones pretty much sum me up!

4. Tanya Burr Lipgloss in 'I Found Nemo'
I'm not a huge lip gloss fan, as I find them too sticky on my lips.
However I picked up this beauty in Superdrug on a whim, as I fell in love with the vibrant colour.
It is rather sticky, which I was expecting, but it's the colour that has won me over.
It is a gorgeous bright orange, which is the perfect summer shade.
I love the flexible doe foot applicator, as it makes application a doddle.
It's reasonably priced at £6.99.
If you don't mind slightly sticky lips, it's a great budget lip gloss for every day.

5. Bourjois Délice de Poudre Bronzing Powder and Highlighter
As the weather is getting warmer here in the UK, I have been reaching for my bronzer more and more, to add some colour to my pale face.
 I have been loving this matte Bourjois one especially.
I love the smell, it has a very subtle hint of chocolate.
 I only apply a small amount to my cheekbones, as I am quite pale it can look rather orange on my skin. It also comes with a highlighter, which is a pretty pearly shade.
I like to lightly contour my cheekbones, to give a lovely glow.
The perfect duo for glowing summer skin.

6. Mini Milks
Ah Mini Milks... they have always been my favourite ice lolly, since I was a little girl.
I always have a box of these bad boys in my freezer, for when those sugar cravings kick in.
(I may or may not be chomping my way through a vanilla one as I type...)
They are the perfect snack, for when you fancy something sweet.
I love having one for dessert, after dinner.
The vanilla is the best flavour, but I am partial to a chocolate or strawberry lolly too!
I have already been eating way too many of these, in the run up to summer.
There are only 30 calories per lolly, so you can have one or two, or seven guilt free!
P.S. I buy my mini milks from Tesco, they have an offer of two boxes of twelve lollies, for £3.00 - bargain!

  1. The cocoa crunch naked bar is my favourite of the lot too, although I am partial to the mocha one as well. I don't have any allergies either, but they satisfy my sweet cravings and make me feel less guilty as they are slightly healthier. Those Primark pyjamas are fab, especially the "Donut Disturb" ones. I'm the same in Primark though, I make a beeline for the things I usually buy, mainly socks and pants haha.

    1. I love the crunch inside, reminds me of those Nestle Crunch chocolate bars. Ooh I haven't tried the Mocha, sounds yummy! Hehe cheap and cheerful! Primark do the best PJ's, cute slogans and comfy too! :) Thank you for leaving such a lovely comment.

  2. Ahh mini milks! What a blast from the past! Loving the Primark pjs too, they've really upped their game recently. I bought a Star Wars set and they're so darn comfy.


    1. Haha, totally! They always remind me of being a little girl :) So true, they are super comfy, and good quality for the cheap price! Thank you for leaving a lovely comment :)
