So following on from my post Living With Rosacea, I want to talk about another condition that I’m 99.9% sure I have and something that really isn’t known much about. I’m also going to guess though that a lot of people will be nodding along to this post saying they feel exactly like this too. The condition is called misophonia.
I really dislike eating bananas. There, I said it. I hate the smell, the taste and the texture.
That being said though, I love those little foam banana sweets, having blended bananas in my morning smoothies and banana loaf. Recently, I bought way too many bananas and instead of them going to waste, I thought I’d put them to good use and make a banana loaf (with a surprise inside!)
I’ve always wanted to try an electronic face cleanser but, if I’m being totally honest, I’ve always been scared to spend that much money on something I’m not sure I’d use all the time! Plus the fact that some of them look downright scary with overly complicated instructions and they recommend that you should buy the company’s own brand special cleanser to use with it (which always costs a lot!) and then some just look remarkably like “intimate massagers”!
I used to love cycling when I was younger but when I moved to the Isle of Wight at 13, I sold my bike because it was too hilly!! So every year since, I’ve been saying I want to buy a bike, so I can ride along the seafront to take in the summer beautiful views. Then every year I don’t end up buying a bike because I doubt I’d use it often enough to make it worthwhile.
I was going to say that it feels like ages and ages since I did one of these, then I realised that’s because it is; I last did a favourites post back in April!! But I’m back this month because there have been plenty of things I’ve been using, wearing, eating, and of course, loving!!
I absolutely love dry shampoo; it’s probably one of the best things that’s ever happened to the beauty world (apart from highlighters) and I couldn’t ever be without it. I’ve tried loads of different ones over the years from those cheap ones that cost about £1 to one that set me back a whopping £22!! (In my defence though, it smelt absolutely incredible, but I shan’t ever be spending that much again!)
The one that I’ve been reaching for all the time for the last few months though this little beauty from Style Freedom!
I honestly can’t believe that July is nearly over. I’ve had a pretty frantic but awesome month to be honest. I recently quit my job of 18 months to start something slightly different (in fact it’s my first day today, wish me luck!).
I got to hang out with loads of my really lovely (blogger) friends 🙂 I went up to London twice; the first time was for the Harry Potter studio tour and the second was to check out the AW17 collection from GOSH ♥ I also rode a bike for the first time in about 20 years and nailed a pretty difficult pole move called the Superman! I also went to down to Portsmouth to have lunch with my parents, my brother and his children 🙂
Every month, Rachael and I make time to hang out with each other and try and do something different and fun. Among other things, we’ve been to the Foodie’s Festival, the True Crime Museum, bowling and to a spa (which Rachael wrote about here.)
But this month was one of the most exciting months so far because we only bloody went to the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London!! #HazzaP
GOSH first landed on my radar last year when I received their nail hardener in my Girl Gang goody bag. I was thrilled to be invited to attend their SS17 launch earlier this year, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to go. They incredibly kindly sent me out some products to try out anyway! What a lovely company, right?
When I got my invite recently to check out their AW17 products, I knew I couldn’t miss it, so I travelled up to London to see what they’d come up with 🙂
