Beauty Naturals Foot products review!

Hello fabulous friends.

I have been feeling poorly again with my tummy (I.B.S) but I have been relaxing and pampering my tootsies with some wonderful Foot products sent to me by the wonderful Beauty Naturals for review.

I am Diabetic type2 have been now for 4 years and it is vitally important diabetics look after there feet.
Foot care tips if you have diabetes

  • See a private or NHS podiatrist at least once a year. Ask ask your GP for a referral or find a local podiatrist. Keep your feet clean and free from infection.
  • Wear shoes that fit well and don’t squeeze or rub.
  • Never walk barefoot, especially in the garden or on the beach on holidays.
  • Cut or file your toenails regularly.
  • Get corns or hard skin treated by a podiatrist.
  • Seek treatment from your GP or podiatrist if foot blisters or injuries do not heal quickly.
  • Treat ulcers urgently, within 24 hours, especially if there is redness or swelling around the area, or in an area where you've previously been warned to seek immediate attention. 
When to see a doctor See your doctor if:
  • you see breaks in the skin of your foot, or discharge
  • the skin over part or all of the foot changes colour and becomes more red, blue, pale or dark 
  • you notice extra swelling in your feet where there was a blister or injury

I love Beauty Naturals they are a great company and I have reviewed for Beauty Naturals before you can check that review by clicking here.

To keep feet in perfect condition, try a weekly pedicure. First soak feet in a warm foot bath and then smooth any hard rough skin with a foot file.Dry thoroughly and then apply the Foot Treatment Cream.

My Thoughts 
I absolutely love the Martha Hill brand and this product really works!
I start by bathing my feet in warm soapy water or relax in a bubble bath at night.once I am happy with my foot soak I then smooth any hard rough skin with the Foldaway Foot File and Callus Remover.
I dry my feet and I then apply a rich amount of the Extra Rich Foot Treatment Cream by Martha Hill all over my feet and ankles then I put on my Moisturising Socks and wear overnight.

I have been doing this twice a week as I am diabetic and have rough skin on my heels and balls of the feet and being diabetic you have to be very careful and look after your feet properly so not to cause any cuts infections or other foot conditions.
I am so pleased with the results from this product alone! the first use I seen an incredible result! my feet has never felt soooo good and soft and smooth the dry rough skin was gone!
It has a nice scent of tea tree not to over powering very subtle.the texture is thick and creamy and luxurious.
I highly recommend this foot product to anyone especially diabetics!

Foldaway Foot File and Callus Remover by Elegant Touch.

Beauty Naturals Description
Has a file to remove and buff dead skin and a coarse metal side to exfoliate rough skin and helps to reduce calluses.
Travel size.The hand folding actions means this is ideal for travel.
Caution Do not use on inflamed, sensitive or damaged skin. 
To Use
Skin is softer after soaking so an ideal time to use is after a bath.
Gently massage callus with metal side to exfoliate rough skin.
Gently smooth and buff with the file.
Rinse the coarse metal side under hot water after use. 

My Thoughts
I have tried different foot files in the past but I do find this file very easy to use and clean.
It does not rip the skin or cause any abrasions great to file away the dead skin and rough skin with the metal side then you buff it off using the smooth side.great to take with you travelling easy foldaway.
over all a great product!

To Use 
Wash and dry feet, liberally apply foot cream or gel. Slip feet into the socks to maintain soft and smooth skin. Use whilst relaxing or sleeping.
Fabric 92% cotton, 8% elastine.
Care Wash at 30C, allow to dry naturally.
Top Tip  First, file away callouses and areas of hard skin using a foot file, then apply a rich foot cream and slip on the socks. We recommend using with Martha Hill Foot Treatment Cream.

My Thoughts
These socks are very comfortable to wear.not to tight around the feet at all.I wear them straight after I have washed dried and moisturised my feet I also recommend using with Martha Hill Foot Treatment Cream. as this is amazing for the feet to give that deep moisturise and soften the roughness.
I also pop them in the washing machine and allow to dry naturally.
great foot product to use again and again for your weekly foot treatment!

My Thoughts

It dries in well and smells lovely! my feet feel fresh and smell fresh with tea tree fruity scent of plum you can smell more of the plum which I like.

My Bridal/wedding Nail art!

Hey my lovely friends.  How are you all? I do hope you all keeping well and safe and good.

I recently had the idea to do a nail art suitable for either brides/bridesmaids wedding guests.
This is my first attempt to do this kinda nail art so thought I would give it ago as I am not a professional nail technician or anything this is simply just an experiment for me I suppose you could wear this look for any special occasion really.

So anyway I decided to do a simple swirl design with glitter and pearl beads!

The items used are listed below.
  • BC polish in Opal.
  • Laval polish in White.
  • Calvin Klein Glitter polish in Hallucinate.
  • NYC clear top coat polish.
  • Technic Nail art pen in White.
  • Various Pearl beads.

I used the BC polish as the base coat.
I then used the CK Glitter polish across each tip I used 2 coats for this.
I waited for it to dry fully then I used the Nail art pen to make the swirls pattern across each nail but the nail pen polish was gloopy and drying up so the swirls was a little bigger than I wanted.I applied clear top coat to the nails and placed the pearl beads all done!

I hope you liked my Wedding nail art! I like the Opal polish :)

Animal Charity of the month nail art!

Hi My wonderful Friends.

I decided to start a monthly Charity nail art post. what I mean by this is I am going to pick a charity for that month and do a theme nail art related to that charity. a bit like when we raise awareness for the likes of Breast Cancer awareness. I want to use my blog and nail art to raise awareness for the chosen charities.

My first chosen Charity is for an Animal rescue centre which is local to me and there is also a centre in Wales. which is Freshfield's Animal Rescue Centre.

Here is some information about Freshfield's Animal Rescue Centres.

Dedicated to Saving the Lives of Unwanted, Homeless and Abused Animals
The charities main aims and objectives are to provide sanctuary and relief to all animals who need it whilst providing a focus of learning, education and example in man’s association with animals.
Freshfields animal rescue is a non profit making charity caring for abandoned, abused and unwanted animals. We act as a temporary refuge and sanctuary for an endless cycle of animals in need of help.
Our aim is for the misery to stop once they reach us, with each animal receiving the food, medication, socialisation and the love it needs.
Our ultimate objective is to find the right new home & family for each of our charges as quickly as possible!
If you are able to offer an animal a home please browse our site, there are many other ways you can help us to help them see this link
East Lodge Farm, Ince Blundell, Liverpool L29 3EA
Which deals with all manner of animals from cats and dogs to the more unusual ferrets, chinchillas and other exotics.
Bryn Melyn, Nasareth, Caernarfon
Which is primarily a Horse and Pony sanctuary but is also home to numerous cats, kittens and other small creatures.
We receive no regular funding and would be very grateful for any support you could offer.
Please note: our policy is to not home dogs to families with children under 5 years old.
This is a charity close to my heart as I love all animals and I would adopt them all if I could.
In 2011 shortly after my Cat Sassy died of cancer We decided to adopt 2 cats from the Centre. so we went along and after a difficult choice of which cats to pick as there is so many lovely kitties we finally found our 2 girls Mother and Daughter Bella and Sophie whom we have grown to love both of them very much.

Bella the Mum is the gray cat & Sophie the Daughter is the White fluffy cat.
The Centres work very hard to help Animals and raise money for the charity by the kindness of the general pubic to donate what they can.
You can help by donating HERE.
For more information on how to help please click HERE.
You can also sponsor any of the animals either for yourself or as a gift. When you sponsor an animal your donations are used to help all of the animals in our care.

You can also kindly donate items on Freshfield's Animal Rescue Centre wish list page on Amazon Click HERE

YOUR TEXT to 70070 can make an INSTANT DIFFERENCE to the life of an unwanted, abandoned or abused animal!' To donate to our Welsh rescue just text WLSH11 followed by the amount or to donate to Liverpool text LIVP11 followed by the amount. You can text donate any of the following - £1, £2, £3, £4, £5, £10... PLEASE DON'T HESITATE, the animals need you to make that instant difference TODAY!

There are many many Animals in both Centres that are desperate for loving caring forever homes.
If you feel you can give an Animal a loving home or know someone who does please adopt a pet today by visiting the centre near you.
Thank you.

Finally here is my Nail art for this charity.I used Acrylic paints to create this nail art.
I decided to paint some Animals that are looking for a loving home.

This gorgeous girl is having no luck in life.  She originally came to us in the summer 2013 as the landlord did not allow pets, she has since been to a couple of homes and always been returned through NO FAULT OF HER OWN!  Every time Skye thinks she has found a loving home and a new mum and dad, something happens to take it away from her.  Skye is a happy, fun loving girl, she loves playing and lots of affection.  Her previous home told us that despite the stress she was under at Freshfields (she gets very upset with kennel life), she is very calm and well behaved in the house.  Skye meets dogs well when she is out and about on walks, she crawls across to them on her tummy to say hello, so very cute and submissive!  Skye has also met a cat, unfortunately for her she was swiped across the face by the naughty kitty (!) but she didn't retaliate so their is a possibility she could be ok with cats.  Skye needs someone home for most of the day as she is a young girl.  This beautiful, loving lady will make a wonderful friend.  She just needs a chance to find a family that will promise to commit to her, look after her and love her forever!

Tabitha has come from a home where there were just too many rabbits and is now looking for a new home and a new friend to share it with.
She will need a hutch with a run attached.  The run should measure at least 5ft x 7ft and must be fully secure.  It can either sit on concrete/paving slabs or on grass but if it is sited in a grassy area, mesh will need to be placed under the grass to prevent digging out.
If you think Tabitha may be the ideal companion for your rabbit please give us a call to discuss bonding.  We do all the bunny bonding here at freshfields and so you must be prepared to leave your rabbit for as long as it takes for him to be happy wih his new friend, this generally takes an average of 5 days although it can vary.  Your rabbit must also be neutered and be up to date with his vaccinations.

Rehomed from us as a kitten. Suffered from continual bowel problems throughout her life. Returned to us as owner's circumstances changed. Had her large colon removed and with her new diet, a mix of Hills senior and T/D dry she is defecating solid poos. Rehomed for one week, family could not cope.
A great and funny girl. She bunny hops around at quite a speed. She is affectionate and loving to most of whom she encounters. Although in her previous home she was at times dominating to the older cat who lived with her. She is quite a playful feline, running up and down the cattery with the youngsters if she gets the chance. We would love her to have a garden to run around in, to feel the sun on her back and the grass on her whiskers.
She will need to stay on her strictly controlled diet, would therefore benefit from being an only cat. Experienced cat family please.
