DIY Edible Lip Scrub

During the cold winter months chapped lips are a huge problem that many people, including myself, face. While may people go straight for the lip balm, lip scrub is the best option. The only problem is it costs a lot to get a decent one, luckily though they are super easy to make from everyday kitchen ingredients.

All you need is:
-Sugar , you can use any I chose brown
-Petroleum Jelly or an old lip balm (you only need a bit)
-Optional- Oil, I used olive
-Optional- Flavouring, I wanted peppermint but couldn't find it so I used vanilla
- A container, I used an old Starbucks mint container
-A teaspoon, I used a measure and also a regular spoon to mix
-A bowl, you can mix in the container but its just really awkward.

This recipe is very much guesstimate, you add what you think but I will give a rough guide. 
First, add 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp sugar and about a 1 cm slice of lip balm, mix this together to form a gooey, lumpy mess. 

If your not adding the oil/ flavouring keep mixing until you get a better consistency.Keep adding sugar and honey until you have the amount you want and it forms a mixture that looks something like this.

If you are adding the oil/ flavouring (I find it is better to add the oil as it will make it easier to get this consistency) do this now. Add approximately  1/2 tsp oil and a few drops of flavouring and mix. Now also keep adding sugar and honey until you have the amount you require and it looks something like the above. Now put it in the container.

Spread it until it fills the container. Leave it to settle at room temperature for an hour or so and then put it in the fridge. It should last up to 2 weeks in the fridge.

Apply to lips and leave on for 2-3 minutes and then wipe off with a a piece of kitchen roll and apply lip balm, use twice a week or so and you will have beautiful-y soft lips.

Bucket List

If you saw my post least week about my New Years Resolutions then you will know that my first resolution was to post at least every week. And so far I am sticking to that, which believe me even if it is only the second week of the year, I think I'm doing pretty good.

When I was talking with my friends and family I realised that I had forgotten to post about one of my biggest resolutions, so I decided that I will pretend it's so big it deserves a post of its own.

So, my New Years Resolution is to accomplish a few things of my Bucket List. When I created my Pinterest Account one of the first boards I created was my Bucket List board and a few pins later I already had 101 things on my list. This year I want to accomplish at least 10! I have stupid little things like 'finish a chapstick' aswell as bigger things which I won't be able to do for a while such as ' pass my drivers test' and 'be married for 50 years'

And every time I do I will post about it on here, feel free to have a look at my bucket list by clicking HERE! and of course repin anything you want. Here's some of my favourites!

New Years Resolutions


I've been wanting to change my blog design for ages because all the ones I have had just don't look professional enough, so when I found a £10 note in my old coat pocket I decided it was time. So thank you so much to Designer Blogs for this adorable template at such a good price! I LOVE IT!

Any way back to what this post is meant to be about... New Years Resolutions. Like most people, every year I make a new years resolution and by the next day already broken it. But this year shall be different. If I put them on here its kinda like a pressure to keep to them. 

So my 2013 New Years Resolutions are:

1- To post more on my blog. I am aiming for at least every week if possible, I really want to get my blog known and read by more people so hopefully by the end of the year I can look back and see how much it has progressed.

2- To look after myself and get healthier. I have always had problems with bad skin and partly to blame is my sweet tooth, I also used to have bad asthma because I didn't do enough excersise so this year I will eat better and excersise more, generally just look after myself better.

3- To be happy. With what I look like, and just in life. Like most teenagers I have never like my hair, my skin, my nails and just what I generally look like, so along with my other resolution of looking after myself, I think by the end of the year I will love how I look, as long as I look after my hair, skin etc. I also want to be happier in life, so do things that I want to do to make me happy.

4- Be a better person. A better friend. A better daughter. A better sister. A better aunt  I want to make my friends and family proud of me and happy when they are around me, which will make everybody happier. I also want to be a role model to my nephews and nieces because they are the world to me and I want them to make the right decisions, being a young aunt, (I was 5 when my first nephew was born) they are more likely to follow what I do.

5- Learn something new. I really want to learn the guitar because it is such a beautiful and versatile instrument  and I love the sound of it. I already have a guitar its just the motivation to pick it up and actually try to learn something.

I would love to hear about your new years resolutions so leave a comment below or contact me via Twitter/ Facebook  the links are just to the right!

Happy New Year


2012 has been the best year of my life and I am sad to see it go, I got to do so much and had loads of fun along the way.  January 5th was the day I went to see One Direction perform live in Plymouth and met them too along with Liam's mum and dad and Louis Grandparents! Its crazy to think that barely anyone knew them back then but now they are the worlds biggest band!

I also went to Soccer Six in London with my friends and met many people including the beautiful Parade!

From about April to July the weather was gorgeous and I had a great time down the beach with my friends.  It was so nice to have so much sun. Although it didn't last long and from August onward it has been tipping it down with rain.

During July I also went on my school residential to Bude which was by far the best week of my life, full of adventure and fun, I also conquered many fears there too. It was so much fun and the people were so nice I would go back without even thinking about it.

And then of course these past few weeks with CSL 2012, Christmas and New Years I have spent so much time with my family it has been great. Also I was bridesmaid for my beautiful big sister who got married on Sunday. The weather held out for the day and everyone had a wonderful time.

I hope you all had a great year and 2013 will be even better bringing you all the success and happiness in the world.
