| 2020 | 07 | 29 | Review - Tisserand Sweet Almond Oil |

the what::
let me tell you about the oil i've been using for over ten years - Sweet Almond Oil. 
















| Tisserand | Sweet almond | 100ml | £5 | Amazon |*

the sales pitch:

highly moisturising and nourishing this oil is packed full of oleic acid (an omega-9 fatty acid), linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid) and vitamin e.

These combined are able to tackle inflammation, reduce breakouts, act as an anti-oxidant and provide moisturising effects.

it is used regularly as a carrier oil due to being able to 'play well' with other products. 

the why::
oils on the skin are one of my favourite delivery methods. 

I like sweet almond oil for its ability to help my skin retain moisture and deal with any irritation in a gentle way.

the how::
there are so many methods of application for this oil.

I use it for a couple but a quick google informed me I'm not really scratching the surface:
- oil cleansing method
- facial moisturiser
- body moistiser
- shaving oil
- nail and cuticle oil
- hair oil
- perfume essential oil

my thoughts::
i always have a bottle of this on hand. it's easy to use and isn't sun sensitive - something i get through a lot of on holiday!

as predicted the lipstick i was fawning over for the sum total of five hours has now slipped my memory. 


we've done a lot of walking this week. catching flies, fighting bears. you know. the usual. 



i showed this picture to my hairdresser and she more or less cried.

I refuse to hate pan
If i don't like a product i'm getting rid. 

the salt spray was a bit meh. 
the eyeshadows were so overhyped it hurts my soul how much i bought into them.

yes. you are welcome for this. 

counselling last night was really tough. we were practicing helping sessions and each 'go' had to last ten minutes. I never fully appreciated how hard to was to speak on demand about a particular topic in a particular setting, whilst remembering all the things and staying in character. 

| 2020 | 07 | 01 | Oasis - Stop the clocks |



Ahhhhh this is a CD that was technically stolen from an ex. 

It's probably a bit weird to seek him out to return it so here we are. 



Having just re-checked the pile of CD's I'm about to include in this series, that's gonna be the case for at least half. 

Borrowed. 
Stolen. 
Taken. 




















This is such a nostalgic album. I'm not sure I actually like it, but the emotions it stirs up are big. We were 17 and my friends and i were going through our youthful phase. genuinely, looking back those were the days of converses and side fringes. we drank jack daniels from the little bottles and swigged diet coke as a chaser. the life. 

We thought we were really cool listening to oasis, me and sean. he got a renault clio from his parents so could pop round whenever he liked and we'd go for mini road trips to grass fields and spend the afternoon lying in the sun. 

yeah i know.
