Yoga sports bra and pants review | #triedtested

Honestly, I don’t exercise. It’s because I don’t have the time to do so. However, Im preparing myself to do it by collecting fitness accessories I can use in the future. So when I was offered to review this sports bra and pants I took the chance.

Queenie Ke Womens Yoga Sport Bra Light Support Strappy Free To Be Bra Size M Color Black Aross

Queenie Ke Women’s Bandage Skinny Sports Yoga Running Dance Cropped Pants Size L Color Grey Melange

Check out my video review over our YouTube channel

I was impress with the quality, fitting and style of this product. Most of all they were comfortable to wear, soft fabric which has a nice feel against the skin. They are both stretchy as well which is good for extra support.


Their sizing chart were perfectly fit me. I’m a uk size 8 so I have ordered size medium as recommended in their size chart.


The sports bra does gives a light support and has a beautiful criss cross strappy style which looks lovely on the back. It has a lovely bust support with additional padded that is removable.

​​

​​

The leggings / pants has an elasticated waist. Also has this stylish bandage that you can tie till the ankle.
Im really pleased with this product and I’m happy to recommend them.

What You Need When You’re Going To A Festival


Photo Source

Summer really is the best time of the year. If you are a student, you can take some time off and not worry about essays and deadlines for a while. It also gives you a chance to start reading for your next year’s modules. If you have already become ensnared in the world of work, it is the time that you look forward to every single day. When you get up on those cold winter mornings and have to scrape the ice off your windshield, the long, sultry summer evenings are something that you dream of. Whether you just want to kick back and relax at home or you’re planning a trip abroad, you will want to prepare properly.

However, one of the defining experiences of a British summer (despite it likely lasting only a few weeks in which it will rain a couple of times anyway) is going to a festival. While the Glastonbury festival is the biggest event of the year (and certainly the only one that is broadcast on television), there are a lot to choose from. Irrespective of which you choose, from a small, intimate gathering of hardcore fans to being one of an estimated 153,000, there are some things that you will always need.

Here is a list of festival essentials to help you ensure that you are as prepared as possible:

The first part of any festival experience is actually getting to the site. Depending on where you’re going, that may mean getting a coach or driving there yourself. It may be that you’re travelling quite far and you should, therefore, consider investing in something to distract you. An iPod is always good, but since you are going to be partying for at least a couple of days, you should probably think about getting some rest.

Taking a neck pillow is never a bad idea. While it may sound rather dull to just settle down and conserve your energy, one of the things that you’ll find is that travelling to a festival on a coach is not as hectic and loud as you’d expect. While there will likely be a lot of young people with you, they will probably be quite sedate.

You could even think about taking a book but you have to consider that it may potentially get damaged once you get to the festival.

Once you arrive, you will not be heading straight to a stage to see your favourite acts, but going to the campsite to find a good spot to sleep. You will obviously want to take a tent. Opinion is divided on whether you should take a good one though.

Many people invest in a cheap tent and then when they leave the festival, they just leave the tent at the site. However, this is not all that considerate since someone will have to clear it up. While you should leave the place as you found it, you also want to live in reasonable comfort while you are there. You are going to be sleeping on the ground so it will never be as good as your bed at home, but making sure that your tent is good enough to withstand the sometimes capricious British weather is a must.

You should also pick out a good sleeping bag. You may be tempted to get a more modest one, but remember that it will be the only thing keeping you warm and you do not want to get sick and have your weekend spoiled. On the topic of being ill, if you are susceptible, you should double check that you’ve got tablets for hayfever and other allergies.

Not being able to see your favourite musicians because your eyes are watering so much is never a good look.

Once you’ve got everything set up and you know where you’re going to be sleeping, you can start exploring.

However, since there are going to be lots of people walking all over the place, the ground can quickly become rather muddy. Invest in a good pair of wellington boots. It may not pour down with rain the whole time though so you should also get some hiking boots too. They may not seem like the most glamourous, but they are practical.

Going to a festival in shoes that you’d wear on a night out is not going to work because you’ll soon find that you’re rather sore. You need something that will support your feet because you’re going to be spending a lot of time on them.

One of the reasons that a lot of people cannot stand the idea of going to a festival is that you do not have a lot of the comforts on which you usually rely. These may include access to a shower. At bigger festivals, you have to wait for a long time to get into the cubicle, and once you’re there, you may be disappointed to find that since thousands of people have used it before you, it may not be all that clean.

This is why some people choose to take matters into their own hands and wash as effectively as they can with a facecloth in their tent, or use wet wipes. It may not sound appealing but it is the reality of going to a festival. It is better to prepare for it now than be surprised later on. Incidentally, there are often long queues for toilets too so get used to waiting. You’ll be doing it a lot.

For all of the practical considerations that you have to be aware of, festivals are all about having fun. Take a camera so that you can capture what will likely be the best weekend you’ll have all year as well as comfortable clothes that you can dance in until the early hours of the morning.

Since you are at a festival, you cannot go down to the shops if you want something to eat, so take some extra cash to get something there. If you drink, you should also think about taking some of your own since it can be quite expensive.

The most important thing though is to enjoy it. It is a rite of passage at this point and you do not want to miss out.

The Irish fairy door review | #triedtested

We were sent The Irish fairy door blue arched and my son was so excited in unboxing it. Please Watch our Video on YouTube.


The package content :

  • The blue arched door
  • Welcome guide book
  • Lease agreement
  • Note pad
  • 3 stepping stones
  • Surprise car air freshener ( smell lovely and fruity )


First we register our fairy on the Irish fairy door company website as instructed on the welcome guide book. My son Richard named his fairy after him so we called our fairy Richard lol


My teenage daughter got excited and she accompany her brothers to put the fairy door on the boys bedroom by their window and she also write a message for the fairy.


The following day, my kids check the fairy door and they were surprised that the note has gone including the key from the small bottle. Which made them believe that a fairy live with us and that they need to look after the Irish fairy door from now on.

My kids especially my 5 years old son was so excited about this. They loved their Irish fairy door on their bedroom window. We definitely recommend this to every family. This would make a great present as well.

Affordable alternatives for spring trends

While waiting for my car service on Saturday (3 hours!!) I decided to kill some time by reading a magazine, now I’m not normally one to buy magazines, I think they are a waste of money. But I quite enjoyed flicking through Marie Claire (April 2017 edition) and looking at their suggestions for spring fashion trends. 


Marie Claire is predicting that trend for spring/summer is going to be:

  • Metallic 
  • Check
  • Asymmetric hem lines and
  • Bold colours and patterns 

One thing I did not like, however, was the price tags suggested in these articles: £220 for a top, £70 for a blouse, £79 for a skirt and £590 for a pair of sandals…so I have decided to share some better priced alternatives for those of us who are not millionaires…

Metallic 


Metallic cold shoulder top, £8.99 from select


Metallic jacket, £29.99 from NewLook

Checked


This gorgeous checked dress is only £22 from NewLook


Checked shirt, only £14 from Tesco F&F

Asymmetric Hems


This beautiful dress is only £16 from Forever21


Asymmetric skirt, £18 from Tesco F&F

Bold Colours and Prints


Bright and bold yellow crop top, only £10.99 from Forever21


£5.99 for this skater dress, from Select

I love these outfit ideas, they are so lovely.

The perfect bedroom for your animal loving kid.

Kids go through a lot of phases in their young lives. One week they are obsessed with superheroes, the next it’s witches, wizards, and magic. Children are very receptive to their surroundings, and that is probably why they get so gripped by the things they are interested in. Of course, every child is unique, but one common theme that is apparent in many childhoods is a love for nature and the outdoors. As we grow up, we do regrettably lose some of our awe for nature, as we simply get used to it, or realize that we don’t have time to travel the world anymore. But if your little one has a thing for all creatures great and small, definitely take the opportunity to nurture that! It could lead them to great things, and a love and respect for the natural world is something that should be instilled into all our children. A good place to start with appealing to this side of their personality is by theming their bedroom around the great outdoors. Kids love a themed bedroom, and it can be a great way for them to express themselves. Here are a few ways you can bring the outside inside for your little adventurer.

Maps 

Children have a limited concept of how large the world actually is – to them, your local supermarket seems to be miles away, so surely Africa is just around the corner from there, right? That doesn’t mean to say, however, that you shouldn’t expose them to all the different countries and cultures that the world has to offer – it can be great for their geography skills, too. Display a large world map in your child’s room – you can even get hold of ones that allow them to scratch off where they’ve already visited, which is sure to spark their travel bug.

A teepee bed 

Why settle for a regular bed when your child could have something unique and exceptional? Kids have wild imaginations, and your little adventurer probably spends much of their time pretending that they are off on their travels somewhere, getting into all kinds of predicaments! Feed their imagination with a tent or teepee-style bed from somewhere like Cuckooland. Who knows, maybe one day your child will set off adventuring in the real thing – but for now, a tent-shaped bed will do just fine!

Animal art 

It is a sad reality that some of the animals we grew up with may no longer be around for our children. Go to the effort of teaching your child about all the amazing creatures of the world – it will feed their interest in conservation and respect for animals. Get hold of some colorful art prints of various animals, whether you go for domestic ones or more exotic beasts. You can get custom-made, handcrafted ones from websites such as Etsy, or you could even try your hand at making one yourself. This way, your child can appreciate all the natural wonders of the world right from his or her bedroom.

Mother’s Day Ideas – Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is always a difficult one to choose a present for. I adore my Mum, her help with everything is immeasurable: from cooking guidance, to child raising advise and relationship help. Buying a present which shows how much I love her would be impossible.

I have been looking around for something meaningful or something which would be appreciated:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • If you are thinking chocolates for Mum, then I always say go with Thorntons: classy and well known for their quality without breaking the bank.
  • If your Mum is a tea lover then how about a selection box from Twinings? I have the favourite teas and the fruit tea variety and absolutely love them all and at £10 a box they are very well priced! If you wanted something a bit more special they do them in beautiful wooden boxes or you can get hampers, but those are of course more expensive.
  • You may remember I did a video on ways to wear a pashmina? The pashmina I used was kindly supplied by Accessory Insanity, it was an amazing quality Pashmina and they have a huge selection of colours from which you could pick the perfect colour way for Mum. They also have some stunningly beautiful bags/purses or jewellery which would make any Mum so happy.

  • While we are talking jewellery, if you want something top quality and beyond beautiful for Mum check out up-coming jewellery designer Georgina Zupnik. Her designs are a bit different but I love them all.

I hope this has given you some ideas for what Mum might like. I am a Mummy myself and would love to receive any of these.
