A Bit of R & R

I don't know about you but I love a bit of rest and relaxation, that priceless time on your own where you get to pamper yourself and have a bit of ME time. Many of us lead busy hectic lifestyles so its important to recharge and get your thoughts together. I like to take some time out once a week just for me its good for your body and good for your soul. I light some candles, soak in a hot bubble bath and apply a face mask then drift away wherever my thoughts take me.

The lovely people at May Beauty were kind enough to send me some * The Incredible Face Mask packs, brush and The Incredible Skin Guide. I was thrilled as this fitted right in with my weekly pamper routine and I couldn't wait to try them out.
The mask itself is black in colour which if I'm honest felt slightly strange almost tar like but I wouldn't let that put you off. May Beauty were kind enough to send me a bush which was fantastic for applying the mask and keeping the mud on my hands and fingers to a minimum. I'd make sure that you get a nice thick layer of the mud over your face as once it has fully dried after 30-45 minutes it will make it easier to remove. I used the masks over a period of  5 weeks. Admittedly the first few times did hurt when peeling off the mask but I have found this with most peel off face masks. Also I'd try and peel the mask off in one go if possible by loosing the edges and going for it. Like removing a sticky plaster as a child it's easier and less painful to do it in one go! Overall I'm really happy with the results, my skin feels healthier, smoother and fresh.

Amble Puffin Festival

I love puffins the 'clown of the sea', they are instantly recognisable with their colourful bill and clown-like eye markings.  My Mr Puffin design is inspired from my photographs and sketches I made on the beautiful and wildly rugged Northumberland coast just a few miles from my home. The week beginning 25th May was Amble Puffin Festival  a week long celebration of everything that is puffin so I jumped at the chance to get involved and signed up to be a stallholder. I love Amble and regularly frequent this delightful coastal town so couldn't wait to set up my stall and meet lots of lovely people. Being by the coast however it was a little windy but my friend gave me her marquee for the two days to help keep me protected. It did the job nicely however one large sneaky gust of wind almost took off with the marquee leaving me and my products behind!


I was lucky enough to meet some awesome stall holders who made my experience even more fun.


Jina Gelder Illustration a wildlife artist from Newcastle upon Tyne.


 And Sarah Gee Fine Art with her adorable dog Poppy.


Alongside the art and craft stalls were a number of games, fairground rides and activities to take part in.


I came away with a selection of ale From The Notebook and it was a much needed reward for a busy few days.


And I couldn't resist the scrummy delights of Fudge Town after all it would have been rude not to.

I had a truly fabulous time at the festival and new Mr Puffin cards, pocket mirrors, tote bags and art prints went down a treat!

Get yourself to Amble Puffin Festival next year and enjoy some puffin related fun and frolics!
