T.V Review, Age Before Beauty BBC 1. And What have I Been Up To.

                                             22nd August 2018

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled on this little gem on BBC 1, Age Before Beauty, Tuesday's 9.00 pm, I binged watched the first two episodes on BBC i player in one weekend and had decided to stick with it, It's about a beauty parlor the main character  Bel played by Polly Walker comes back to work at the salon years after leaving, she is brought back to revive it after her jealous sister almost  runs it  into the ground the main plot is that Bel's husband starts to have an affair with  a younger attractive  women the plot has many twist's and turns at first I thought it wouldn't be very good, and that's why it was shoved into the Summer slot when everyone is on holiday but I have been very pleasantly surprised  and now am hooked I will watch  episode 4 after finishing posting here feet up after another very busy day.  Catch this if you can episode five is on next Tuesday or catch up with BBC i player.  I have been working today on the technical side of my blog, "again"  I here you say I have been trying out different style's thinking  that it looks  to amateurish I had some great advice from another blogger who has been so helpful with his wisdom who told me to tidy my page up a bit,  I also have changed the About Me section. I wanted to put a picture next to my name header, I managed to figure out how to do it Yay for me, I am still enjoying blogging and look forward to getting home and sitting here in front of the computer, I have some great Idea's for this  Autumn's  posts while trying to make my  blog look aesthetically pleasing to the reader I hope you are all enjoying it so far and continue with me on my journey. have fun love Mimi 💋

Santi's Handmade Jewellery, Review.

This post contains advertising links. 

  Hi to you all, I was approached by the lovely and talented Sofiya Dimitrova, creator of Santi's Homemade Jewellery.  You will find her fantastic website here Santi's handmade Jewellery  Who gifted me a lovely   Earing's   and bracelet set  to review.

 The items arrived very quickly in a cute little pouch trimmed with a ribbon, I love jewellery so as you can imagine I was very excited to open it.   The earnings and bracelet  I was gifted are silver plated, wire wrapped with opal stone beads. The name Opal derives from the Sanskrit word upala which means "precious stone".  Sofiya designed this piece so it would go with any Summer outfit.
 I loved the pure but subtle tones of the blue against the silver, and that the beads change colour in the light  the earnings are wired so delicately, and with care, you can tell that Sofiya takes great pride in her work.  Each piece has been lovingly handcraft, most of her pieces are made …

Put your hands up who's a secret blogger,  me me me.  In a room full of people I would be the first to stand up, in a queue I would be well and truly at the front.  I am the Ultimate secret blogger I confess, anyone else come on own up.
    On a serious note when, I started my blogging journey I really wanted something to do on a creative level if  20 or so people read my posts I would have been really happy, I never realised  that I would get this far, I have learnt so much in such a short space of time. I started my blog on July 17th 2018, only one person knew about it, my Brother I needed him for the technical bit, I will give him a shout out because he does read the blog don't you know, it took me about three weeks to tell my Sister, and one of my Nieces and my older Brother but no one else knows,   I feel quite like it's some kind of big hush hush secret, don't get me wrong I am proud of my little corner of the internet, I am just not ready to share it with …
