Sylvanian Families Pizza Delivery

We were very lucky to get this pizza delivery set from Sylvanian Families. As always when we are sent something to review, the review is our own opinion. I say 'ours' as I am including Evie in this review as the set was sent to her.

So in this set you get the super cute Hedgehog Father, who is the owner of the pizza shop. You Also get his delivery scooter, a menu board, plenty of different pizza slices, pizza boxes, and a pizza cutter.
As always, it takes only 5 minutes to pop the stickers in place. I found folding the pizza boxes in the right way a little bit trickier but my husband had no problems!

Evie loves this set. She loves how soft the hedgehog is, and the fact that he's got a proper little pizza man outfit. Another great thing about the set that Evie personally likes is that the box on the back of the scooter opens up, with perfect space for the pizza boxes, perfect for delivery.

Coping with car journeys with motion sickness

I get awful motion sickness with my various illnesses. I can be sat in the car for only a 5 minute drive and I'm feeling all faint and sick! It's a bit of a nightmare. These are the things I do* to get through car journeys and keep the sickness and dizzy spells (mostly) away.

*These things don't happen when I end up on surprise car journeys. I found myself on a short surprise journey last week and within 5 minutes I was declaring that I felt sick. The driver looked pretty horrified! Luckily I wasn't sick.

Hydrate - I arm myself with a bottle of water, and make sure I sip (and not gulp!) when I feel a bit poorly

Get comfortable - If it's going to be a long journey, I'll take along a pillow. Then I can try to relax and rest. Also good for using as a lumbar support, as sitting too long hurts my back.

Music - Listening and singing along to favourite songs keeps my spirits up, and distracts me.

Headphones - If I can't listen to my own music in the car, I tend to pop my headphones in on my phone and just drift away listening.

Deep breathing exercises - Great for calming

Face of the day 14th February

Today I'm feeling those sci fi space Princess vibes. Messy space buns, spacey planet hair clip (Thanks to Janine Basil), some face crystals, and lots of shimmery makeup.

The yellow of my dreams

Today I am loving this bright yellow eyeshadow! This is the yellow from the Only for Unicorns palette from VE Cosmetics. I applied it with a damp angled brush, and it came out so perfect and pigmented. I've been after a bright yellow for so long, so I am very happy!

Green eyes

I received a set of Freshlook Colors contact lenses and solution from
I've never worn contact lenses before so it was really fun to try these out, and at the same time try out a different eye colour! When ordering the lenses you are able to order to suit your contact lenses prescription needs, or if you don't have one you can get them with no prescription making them solely for having a fun new eye colour. I chose green contact lenses as I thought it's such a pretty colour. The lenses and solution arrived very quickly from when I received the dispatch email. They were packaged well, with no unnecessary packaging or huge boxes!

The contact lenses themselves are very easy to use. I followed the instructions and made sure my hands were freshly washed and dried before handling the lenses. I then used one hand to hold open my eyelid, and the other to place the contact lenses on to my eye. Then I blinked a few times until it moved itself in to the correct place. It was a quick and easy process.

My natural eye colour is a very dark brown

 As my eyes are so dark, I wasn't too sure if the coloured lenses would work on my eyes. However I was glad to see that they blended really nicely with my natural colour, creating a sort of green and hazel colour, leaving a beautiful natural shade.

I wore the contacts regularly and experienced no discomfort whatsoever. They were also very easy to remove at the end of the day - I simply held my eyelids open again, and used the other hand to gently slide the contact and pop it out!

I absolutely recommend using for easy to use and comfortable lenses that can give you a quick change in eye colour. If you're like me and forever losing your glasses, then contacts may be for you, it's much harder to lose them!

Punk ladies bomber jacket

 I don't know what else to say apart from HOW AMAZING IS THIS JACKET!? Haha. I got this from Disturbia and it is currently in the sale here. I'd been eyeing it up for a few months now, and finally bought it last week. The jacket itself is true to size, very soft and comfortable, and pretty damn cool. I'm hoping for dryer, warmer weather soon so I can wear this out regularly.
