Autumn Bucket List - Activity

Just a simple entry from me for my first in my Autumn bucket list as I currently have no internet connection until my new home hub arrives boooo! 

Never the less, one of my favourite Autumn activities is going for long walks along the river. I love heading out on a bright and crisp day with my friends and getting a cup of tea from our favourite snack bar! It's so nice to see all the public foot paths covered in leaves, everyone gets wrapped up to walk the dogs and get some fresh air!

Here's me on part of the foot path along the river, and yes....I took off my scarf and big coat for the sake of the picture...dedication!

See you with my next bucket list post :) Don't forget to check out Marie's original post HERE!!

Autumn Bucket List

This Autumn/Fall I'm going to be taking part in Marie's little project called the Autmun Bucket list.  Basically the idea is that bloggers from all around the world get together and blog a picture a long with some information of their favourite Autumn things. You can find Maries blog post Here!
 The categories are in the picture below!


If you put a little comment on the post then Marie will list you on her blog so we can all check each other's out together! I think It's such a great idea to bring people from around the world together and to see how Autumn or Fall varies for different people!

I will be posting my first picture in the next few days! :)

Balmi Lip Balm Review



I was recently in my local boots when I spotted the Balmi lip balms. I was eager to buy one as I have always wanted to try one of the Eos Lip balms which unfortunately we can't get in the UK! I picked up the Raspberry one and decided to give it a try!

This retails for £4.99 and as far as I am aware is only available in boots stores and on the boots website. It isn't too bad a price although a bit more expensive than my trusty Carmex and Blistex Relief Cream! It's in a round sphere like shape and is really easy to apply!

What the website says...'The new Balmi Lip Balm has been designed to not only provide moisturisation for your Lips but also protection from harmful UVA rays'...it does contain SPF 15!

 What I think...I love the smell of the lip balm it really is a strong Raspberry smell and I think you get a lot with 10.5 grams of product for the Price. 
I have found that it does moisturise your lips quite well although it doesn't last very long and is more of a quick fix for if you're lips are feeling a bit dry! 

The Balmi comes with a little key chain or mobile phone charm chain attached so it's really handy to attach to your keys. You can also remove it if you'd prefer not to have it!


Balmi also comes in mint, strawberry and coconut!

All in all I like the product but I think I will be sticking with Carmex in the future!
