Blog Love - June

Another month gone and we're half way through the year. Say, WHAT? I have enjoyed the relatively sunny weather the last few days. People in the north of England and further South have not had it so good, our poor world is definitely a shaking a bit. With another month gone I've also found a load more great blogs for your perusal. Feel free to recommend any too :-)

Thirty something skin

As you may know I hit the big 30 last year, yes I am officially old. In my teens I had acne and still now I have some scars and I have always had combination skin. Oily T-zone and just really a mind of its own. I had got used to it being this way and then two months ago it changed!

mypure Review: Lovea Burkina Shea Butter Nourishing Body Lotion

After reviewing the Lovea Bio shampoo recently it felt an obvious choice to go with something else from the range. So I went with the Burkina Shea Butter Nourishing Body Lotion and I really wasn't disappointed. My skin is fairly normal but straight after a bath or shower it feels like it has been sapped of all moisture despite the good shower gels that I use. I seem to leave the shower soft, but then when I'm dry I'm DRY!

Music Monday: The Lumineers - Ho Hey

A couple of weeks ago I spotted a conversation on twitter surrounding a few TV programmes that would not be getting another series. Notable outrage ensued over many, some of which I agreed with as I gave up on a few shows after realising I'd get frustrated by their ending. One of the programmes causing an issue became one that was being continued was 'Hart of Dixie'. Apparently this wasn't a good TV programme so of course I started watching it. Typically I am now hooked.

Get Glue hates me

Hate might be a strong word to use as they might not hate me as such but they sure don't like me. I joined Get Glue a few years ago but only started properly using it about a year ago. Get Glue is a social network where you 'check in' to your TV programmes as you are watching them. The same with films, music, books etc. You can collect stickers which can be mailed to you when you have collected so many and I have been lucky enough to receive some. 

Then I started recommending the app out on social networks and from October last year I haven't had any more stickers. I still use the app and have the widget on my sidebar as you'll see if you scroll down but I'm not sure what I've done for them to not send me any stickers any more. 

I've contacted the support email a few times with NO REPLY. Which automatically gets my rude alert button on activate. So I'm obviously not promoting the social network as a whole but I will say at it's very least that it helps you with where you are in a TV programme. But that's about it.

mypure Review: Lovea Bio Burkina Shea Butter Nourishing Shampoo

I use a lot of various products on my hair and I know it's not good for it to keep doing it. Add to that the number of times I have dyed my hair and I think if my hair went for a "hair check up" it would come back as poorly. I don't have a favourite shampoo, instead I use various shampoos and this isn't because I can't get to just liking one but because my hair is so varied that I need a multitude of shampoos. I do! Notice how I'm trying to justify it a bit? Oops

Music Monday: The Bamboos featuring Tim Rogers - I Got Burned

I do love my Aussie bands and here is another favourite. I can't quite remember how I came across The Bamboos a few months ago but I have been quite obsessed with them recently. Especially with this song "I Got Burned"- it's seriously catchy and this song alone made me buy their album.

Chrome lowers my internet usage!

You might remember last year I switched for a while to Google Chrome after having got a bit (ok, a lot) annoyed with Firefox. The temporary switch was just that, temporary. I was soon back in Firefox's clutches but I still wasn't happy. A year later and I'm now a full on Google Chrome lover and user. As you know impatient Sarah cannot wait and although I only made the switch just last month, it's a dream to use.

Music Monday: Jack White - I'm Shakin'

Another weekend gone. Another Music Monday... YAY! I seem to be loving the guitar tracks at the moment and here's another. Jack White's new album is crazy but oh so good. This song gets stuck in your head pretty quickly and I was intrigued to listen to Little Willie John's original. So here are both for you to listen to.

Rainbows make me smile

The weather has been a lot colder so far in June and definitely wetter. That lovely week in May feels like a long time ago now. Please can our Summer return soon. Anyway before enjoying several Jubilee celebrations this weekend I needed to stock up on necessities, cake! Obviously. So off I drove to the shops with bestie moaning about the weather and me trying to restore some cheer and failing.

Music Monday: The Black Keys - Dead and Gone

It's amazing how the sunshine automatically makes everyone into a much happier mood. This album has almost been on repeat non stop since the warmer weather hit the UK. Despite the song's title "Dead and Gone" you will find yourself tapping your foot along and even singing the catchy lyrics very quickly!
