Maxicharger for Iphone.


For anyone who has a IPhone you will know how frustrating the battery life is. You've been on 3 social media apps and then at the blink of an eye you're down to 20% battery life. Half the time it's practically like having a landline as it's always plugged into the charger. I've had problems, in particular, when on public transport, at festivals in even in hotels as there hasn't been a power point available and my battery is on a depressing 5% and dying quickly.

Well fear not the Maxicharger is here!! No more running on empty! No more wires!

The Maxicharger fits onto your IPhone like a phone case and will charge your IPhone whilst on the move. NO more thinking your IPhone is a landline!! The Maxicharger fits the IPhone 4 and 4s and IPhone 5, 5s and the 5c. The Maxicharger is available in a wide range of colours and designs to suit you and is retailed from £24.99

There are a variety of styles available ranging from a Flip style, Bumper style, Classic style, Charger style and Sleeve style so there is a great range to choose from as well as a numerous range of colours.

The models pictured above show the Maxicharger for both the 5s (left) and 5c (right)

This is a can't live without product and well worth the money!!

Moments that mattered to me in 2013.

As a regular reader of blogs and loving to enter competitions I stumbled across a great competition on one of my favourite blogs in conjunction with Lloyds Bank  to win a Mini IPad worth £249!!! As an Apple gadget lover it's definitely something that I would like to give a shot!

For the competition I have to tell you about the moments that mattered to me in 2013.......

Quite frankly 2013 was the best year of my life. Admittedly I did have a bit of a low which I will get too but i'll start with the most memorable moment of, not just 2013, but my life! On 16/02/13 I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl Lucie. It was a painful 48 hour labour but worth every minute. They say you will never find a love like it and they're right. It's an incredible feeling and I felt proud of my little family as a whole. Myself and my partner Chris decided that we didn't want to put any pictures of our daughter on Facebook as we both think this is a decision she should be making when she's older. But I can tell you that she is the most beautiful little girl and I know i'll remain proud for the rest of my life.

^ Myself and my boyfriend Chris.

Our first family holiday also happened this year in June when we went to Devon, We decided a trip abroad with a 4 month old maybe too much so we decided on the UK. We had an amazing time. Lucie rolled over for the first time whilst we was away which to be honest made the trip. My favourite thing we bought on holiday was a glass cast of Lucie's hands and feet which we got made at a local glassworks!

I attended the Clothes Show Live in December. I've been attended the Clothes Show Live for a number of years and 2013's was the best one I'd been to in a while. The trends were Tartan and Sparkles and all the outfits at Acatel One Touch Fashion Arena were incredible. You can read about my trip to the Clothes Show Live here..... Clothes Show Live 2013

The last memorable and rather scary memory of 2013 involved a certain trip to the doctors for a smear test. Mine results came back with abnormalities. Resulting in hospital visits and an operation to remover pre cancerous cells. Sounds pretty deep I know, but it was memorable to me as it gave me a swift reality check that you should always be on top of things regarding your health. Many girls I know put off smear tests through the fear. Two minutes of being uncomfortable is more than worth it trust me! Luckily mine hadn't progressed into Cancer and was just pre cancerous cells but I wrote about my ordeal on Facebook to make other girls aware and it prompted more than one person to book their smear test which they admitted they'd been putting off so I was extremely pleased that by me speaking out that these girls actually went for their smear tests.

I'm also very proud of my blog which I started in 2013. As a new mum, working and seeing my boyfriend the fact I can even find time to write my blog is great and has been a great way of me spending my free time doing something I enjoy. I love the fact that people have taken the time to read my blog and commented and liked it.

What we're your most memorable moments??

Helpful everyday beauty and fashion tips!

For some unknown reason I seem to hold random information in my brain and store it and then share my random information with friends when a crisis happens. By crisis I mean, a friend has ran out of dry shampoo and I have a solution or someone has a sticker mark on the bottom of their new heels. I always seem to know some little tip or trick to share with people. So I thought I would share some of my knowledge on my blog.

Just to clarify this blog will come without pictures as I've just had the inspiration to write this but I can add pictures at a later date. Trust me though these tips are fool proof and work an absolute dream!!

1. The Dreaded sticker on the bottom of a new pair of heels.

Let's face it, we've all had this dilemma. You get home and try and peel the sticker off, only half of it comes off and you're left with that awful part glue, part sticker mark at the bottom of your new heels. But do not worry!! All you need is to get a make up wipe and wipe it off.

Get the shoe and rub vigorously for around 30 seconds and you will notice that the sticker will start to peel itself and the glue from the shoe. If it doesn't all come off just get another wipe and repeat! You will have no sticker or glue mark on the bottom of your shoes!!

2. Need to paint nails in a rush and for them to dry quickly.

It gets to around the time your supposed to be going out and you've forgotten to paint your nails? All you need is a bowl of COLD water. Paint nails and put nails in bowl of cold water and keep them in the water for 40 seconds. This will set your nail polish and you will be free to enjoy your night out!

3. Ran out of Dry Shampoo.

If you have ran out of dry shampoo all you will need is some talcum powder. Apply a bit into your hands and massage into the root. This will act in the same way as a dry shampoo and absorb any excess oil/grease in the hair.

4. Feet burn on a night out.

This can ruin a night out. For me it has ruined many nights and I cannot be thankful enough of this tip. Feet burn happens when your feet rubs on the base of your shoes and your feet get sweaty. All you need to do to prevent the heat rub is before you go out spray your base of the shoe with deodorant and also the bottom of your foot. This will create a barrier so your foot will not sweat and rub as much on the base of the shoe!

5. Chub rub at the top of the legs otherwise known as chafing.

You will only know about this if you're a size 14 or above. It happens, it's stings and it's uncomfortable but fear not ladies! You need THIS in your life.

No joke this product changed my life. My legs don't suffer anymore!! It's a very silky gel you rub onto the area that chafes and it will stop it for you!! I use this on holiday religiously and have done for a few years now! You can buy this from your local Superdrug here Lanacane Chafing Gel for £6.65.

6. Breaking a pair of shoes in.

You get a pair of shoes you like, they hurt like hell and you feel like crying? All you need to do is get your hairdryer out. Blast the hairdryer into the shoe at a medium / hot setting and blast away at the shoe for 3 minutes. Once the 3 minutes is up put the shoe on and wear for 20 minutes. You will need to repeat this process a couple of times over. The heat will expand your shoe and when you wear it, it will mould the shoe to your foot to keep it's shape. This will mean your shoes will not hurt anymore when you wear them.

7. Having no make up wipes left.

If you have no make up wipes left all you will need it some toilet paper and some Olive Oil. Use a small amount of Olive Oil on the toilet paper and wipe face and it will take your make up off for you.

8. Ran out of nail polish remover?

You want to change or take off your nail polish but you've ran out of remover?? All you need is a can of deodorant. You will need to spray the deodorant directly onto your nail from about 10cm away. Any closer and the deodorant could cause a freeze burn due to the solvents used within the spray. Once sprayed, rub your nails with a wipe / tissue and you will see the nail polish coming off. You will need to repeat this until it's all come off as it won't work all in one go.

9. Too many clothes, not enough wardrobe space.

I've had this happen to me too many times but a friend of mine told me a solution which fixed it for me. Take a can of coke and remove the ring pull. The ring pull has 2 holes in. The bigger hole put round the hook on a hanger in the wardrobe and attach the other hanger through the spare hole on the ring pull. This will create double the storage space in your wardrobe.

10. Fake Tan stains on your hands.

If you have streaky fake tan marks on your hands which won't come off buy any whitening toothpaste and rub it over the area and then rinse. This will remove the fake tan quickly.

Hope I could help some of you with these tips. If you've anymore feel free to add them below!!

Secret Santa - Eyes Box by Soap And Glory.

Hope you all had a good Christmas and new years. Mine was my first Christmas with my little girl Lucie and it was one of the best days of my life! Had such a great time!

Just before Christmas at my work we do a (not so) Secret Santa. By not so I mean we all tell each other who we've got and ruin it every year but we somehow still find it funny. This year Jade was lucky enough to get me again lol. Jade knows me rather well and this year got me a cracking gift the Eyes Box by Soap and Glory. I'd been looking / wanting something along these lines for rather a long time and it really out did itself!

The Eyes box has a sizable mirror within it which helps when you're applying the make up and it also comes with a double ended eye shadow brush, the best selling Thick and Fast Super Volume mascara and a Smoulder Kohl waterproof eyeliner. I found that the mascara did a great job in making my lashes look voluminous and the kohl was great and stayed put and didn't give me the dreaded panda eyes!

The main part is the pallet of colours. There are 6 different Lid Stuff shadow shades in total and all of which are rather pigmented. I'd been looking at getting another black eye shadow as i'd ran out the week previous and needed a new one, so the fact this had one in it I was thrilled!

I wore black eye shade (top right) on my lids and outer creases and the cream shimmer eye shade (top left) in the inner corner for my works night out along with the mascara and the kohl eyeliner. The shade lasted all night but did fade after a while.

I coloured my eyebrows in with a dark brown eyebrow pencil from George at Asda ( I swear by it) you can buy this here for £2.75 Eyebrow Pencil

My eyelashes I buy off Ebay. 10 Pairs for £2.36 inc delivery. You can purchase them here Fake Eyelashes

You can purchase the Eyes Box by Soap and Glory on the Soap And Glory website, where it retails for £16.00 here Eyes Box
Apologies about the bad quality of the picture! I took it on my IPhone and it looks a little distorted!
Let me know of any beauty gifts you got for Christmas!
