There's no place like home..

I have been home in Bristol from Uni (in Plymouth) this week, and although I've probably fallen pretty behind with my work, I've had the nicest time at home so I don't feel quite so bad as it was definitely what I needed.

I had two pretty good nights out, one of which was very spontaneous, both of which were very drunk. I've been to a party and got to catch up with friends,  and had a girly sleepover and some DVD days. In this week home I've probably spent far too much money, watched too many films, not done enough work and ate and drank too much. Yet I feel like it's been worth it. It's been lovely seeing my friends and family and it's so lovely to enjoy my home comforts.


REN: Emollient Rescue Cream.

This product has been an absolute lifesaver for my skin. I suffer from really dry, sensitive skin, so always worry about changing up my basic skincare routine with the same familiar products, which has left me using the same moisturiser for years, despite it only having made a difference to my skin for about all of five minutes and then left skin in the same condition it was before I smothered my face in cream. Alas, I decided to be brave and try something new, and I will definitely not be going back.

I first read about this product on a random blog (sorry, I no longer have the link) I found when looking for skincare recommendation and as the price isn't too high I decided to pop to M&S and get some. Since I have been using this product my skin has been in better condition than it has for years.

The moisturizer is a very thick consistency, it absorbs into the skin quickly, and has a very slight clinical scent to it.

It would definitely recommend this product for those of you with dry skin, especially if your skin is in need of a rescue (I feel the product was named particularly well as it has definitely saved my skin). On the packaging it says suitable for all skin types, however, I feel it could be slightly too thick for a more oily skin type.

This is the first of the REN products I've tried, so I am looking forward to giving some more of their products a go to see if the entire range is this impressive.

Me, Myself and I...

Although I have many other posts planned  (makeup reviews to come shortly), I decided to put them on hold and to make my first 'real' post some facts about me, so you hopeful don't feel like you're reading the words of a complete stranger.

Sooo here we go,

26 random and pointless facts about me:

  1. I recently became a vegetarian. 
  2. I'm 22, and yes I still suck my thumb.
  3. I'm almost blind in my left eye.
  4. I'm the youngest child, I have a brother and a sister.
  5. a have a small obsession with the moon, daisies and wolves. I have no idea why.
  6. I only own two pairs of jeans, usually, if I'm wearing them it means I'm in a bad mood.
  7. I currently have 4 tattoos, and more planned, however, I'm too scared my mum will kill me if I get any more.
  8. Despite being 22, I still ask my mum everytime I want to do something.
  9. My lecturer has nicked named me Chole, it seems to have stuck.
  10. Although my hair is a ridiculously bright, unnatural red, I get people asking if it's natural at least once a week.
  11. Sometimes I write poetry. Pretty bad, embarrassing poems.
  12. My favourite film is 500 Days of Summer.
  13. I read before if a crush exceeds four months its love, if this were true I've been in love four times. However, I wouldn't necessarily believe that.
  14. I decided to do 26 facts because I really like the number 26, I've no idea why, but it's my lucky number,
  15. I like to look up the meaning of my dreams and read my horoscopes far too much.
  16. Fox and the Hound is the only film to really make me cry.
  17. I'm left-handed. 
  18. I love drawing, yet rarely draw.
