The TMI TAG

So I've seen the "Too Much Information" tag across all my social media links. I said I better give it a go as I want some of my followers to get to know me better.
It's a bit of fun and hopefully it'll reflect my personality.
Let me know what you think :)

1: What are you wearing? PJ's. Shameful I know! At 3.30pm!! I'm so busy here blogging and what not so it's easier to work in my lazies haha.

2: Ever been in love? Yes

3: Ever had a terrible breakup? I think everyone has! It's just something you face when you commit yourself to someone!

4: How tall are you?  To be honest I don't actually know. Like 5 years ago I was 5'2 so I'm thinking I'm around 5'5 or 5'6 now 

5: What’s your middle name? My middle name is Carmel after my Granny Carmel. She died when I was just 1 and she had said we were going to be good friends. How sweet! And my confirmation name is Stephanie so my initials are C.C.S.S 

6: What was your favorite subject in school? English definitely. Some would think I'd say music but it's completely different than imagined!! I always had a flare for creative writing even in primary school. From a young age I wrote poems, prayers and essays. Then in secondary school I continued the essays and eventually the blog came about! I loved anything by Shakespeare also.

7: Have you ever lived outside of Ireland? Nope! Been out of the country loads though

8: What’s your favorite perfume? I don't have like a signature scent but I love the Halle Berry range, Beyoncé Heat range, Ralph Lauren (the pink one) , Nina Ricci. Toooo many!

Feather & Bone Face Gems


Aaahh the power of social media. I found this fab company like most companies on the net. I searched #BloggersNeeded on Twitter and the rest is history! So if any newbie bloggers are reading, hashtags such as that are great ways to get involved with companies. :)


Feather & Bone Face Gems is a three ingredient (starch, Fuller’s earth, and sandalwood), single use, portable tablet facial cleanser that empowers and rejuvenates the face with every use. The tablet dissolves into a paste when water is added; it has the triple action of cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing. All natural and made with no preservatives, Face Gems are made for all skin types, men and women and all ethnicities.

If I'm completely honest, when I first saw the Feather & Bone tablets I was sceptical about whether they would wash my whole face as they look so tiny in their packaging. However, I was completely wrong.. One tablet covered my entire face and even more!

 

Look how perfect they are for a travel pack - Face Wash on the go!


Feather & Bone couldn't make it any easier for the customer with 3 simple steps to follow:

STEP 1. Pop one tablet and place it in the palm of your hand.



STEP 2. Add 5-10 drops of water as needed and apply pressure on tablet to break to form paste.


STEP 3.  Scoop paste from palm to massage/apply on full face.








I really like this product. I know it looks icky but who's going to see it only yourslef! It definitely exfoliates the face and I can tell that any dead skin had been lifted when I washed it off. Applying it to a skincare regime for someone with a busy lifestyle is highly recommended!!



Also I'm loving the fact that I got a free sticker. 
(1) Because it's orange
(2) Because I am growing a collection of stickers on my guitar case haha









Much Love and Orange vibes,
Clóda xx
