An Introduction to Cohorted Plus Giveaway

Cohorted is Bargain shopping at its best. It was a company which started from a simple idea from Anthony and Jordan in 2012 they wanted to be the helping hand between big brands and individual shoppers. 
The main concept behind the company is group buying and by buying this way equals better discount and in 2013 Cohorted was founded. 

How Cohorted works in their words -
  • Anyone can join a cohort. When a shopper does join a cohort the price will become lower and lower again the more people that join.
  • When you join a Cohort you will always pay the final price the Cohort closed at. Cohorts will never increase in price once you have joined.
  • Cohorts open and close; they have timers that count down to zero after which they then close. Once a cohort has closed no one can join to buy the product.
  • Cohorts generally run for 7 days and are opened on Mondays and close on Sundays.
  • Cohorts will close if all the products sell out, the timer runs out, or if we see good reason to close a Cohort.
I love this website and the idea behind it and Im on it every week doing a little bargain shopping. They were selling the Naked 3 palette at the very low price of 18.50!!!!!

Ox Pasture Hall Hotel

Ox Pastures Hotel is a beautiful country house located near Scarbrough in the historic North Yorkshire Moors. The Hotel is set in 17 acres of picturesque grounds which is the perfect relaxation place. It is close to the sea and is easy reach of Filey, Whitby and York.

The award winning Courtyard Restaurant is the perfect stop off on a trip to the coast with wonderful views and a friendly atmosphere you will not be disappointed. I was lucky enough to sample one of their wonderful afternoon teas which consisted of a selection of sandwiches and the most amazing homemade scones and Cakes. Booking in the morning would be advisable as everything is made fresh on the day.

The staff were very accommodating too one of the girls had a gluten free diet and they specially made her some gluten free sandwiches and cake and the most amazing raspberry yogurt drink. 

 We then had a look round the bedrooms and I was blown away with the rustic style and homely feel of the rooms. The courtyard was well kept and I loved the decoration on the walls and the benches these little touches stuck in my head and added lots of charm. 

On to the rooms every room had a wonderful view and all were decorated really homely and luxurious. All the furniture was of good quality. Solid oak drawers and beds and the bedding wasn't normal hotel bedding it perfectly matched the room and looked so comfortable.

The hotel is perfect for Weddings too creating the perfect backdrop for photos and wedding memories. The room which caught my eye something I had never seen in a hotel before and this was an open plan double room perfect for the Bride and Bridesmaids the night before the wedding. It has 2 big double beds with extra beds available and has the perfect little seating area for the makeup artist to do their work the morning of the wedding. 

Just a few more photos to show you the perfect bathrooms and the courtyard of the newly built part of the Hotel. Hope my pictures gave justice to this beautiful place. 

I am sorry this post was picture heavy I just couldn't leave any of them out. I fell in love with this place and If I do ever get married it will be high on my list. 

Also a big bonus for me is this hotel is pet friendly and they even have a regular customer who brings a dog, cat and gerbils so they really are animal friendly. 

Hope you enjoyed reading this post I know its not makeup but it is beauty non the less and I could not share this gem of a place with you. 

So go on take a look here

Review | Ginvera BB Cream

I am I big fan of Ginvera Marvel Gel and a few weeks ago I tweeted about it and the Lovely people at Ginvera asked if I tried their BB cream. I hadn't infact I havent tried any BB creams, other than a little sample sachet I got out of a magazine once which half ended up in my mouth and on my chin in the process of opening and the other half didn't really live up to the hype to be honest.

Ginvera is a skincare company set up in Asia and my skin (and life) changed when I got a sample of their Exfoliating Marvel Gel in a beauty box. If you want to be amazed at how much dead skin a product can remove without been gritty or harsh check it out Here

I was so excited to try their BB cream and wasn't sure what to expect as it is one shade for all skin tones. On swaching the product I thought it may have been a little dark or greyish. The texture is quite thick for a bb cream so thought ok so it should have good coverage.

I applied it to my face as it said by patting it in and I was amazed how well it blended into my skin and how well it corrected my redness. It was a very good coverage too and was not heavy at all so perfect for the spring months.

I was also worried how it would take on my really dry skin but I shouldn't have been. It gave a really dewy finish and I feel it would be perfect for the summer as I dont like to wear a full coverage foundation. It also has a built in SPF 30/PA++  Which is brilliant for this time of year and those sneaky sun rays. 

And here is how it looks on me ....

You can check out Ginvera BB cream Here for £18.

I do love this brand!!

My Little Beauty Room

So not done a post like this for a while so thought I would share my weekend with you and what a busy one it was. 

I have had the go ahead to turn the little spare room which was currently used as a junk/ ironing room into my little beauty/dressing room for quite a few months now but never really finished it. This weekend saw me actually kicking my oversized a*se into gear and finally sorting the room out and getting into a stage I'm happy with. 

There is still a lot to be done but I'm quite proud of myself for not been my usual lazy self and spending 90% of my weekend grafting rather than playing Pet Sage (damn that thing is addictive) and  blogging. 

Thought I would share with you my progress so far and my little layout the room is bigger than it looks in the pictures but is hard to take photos of I'll maybe do a little video when its all finished. 

The Nail Polish Rack was made for me by my partner and I painted it white to match the rest of my furniture. I love how I can easily see all my polish rather than routing through my drawers like I use to do.

The mirror on the back wall makes the room look a little bigger and brighter as there is no window in the room so have to have really good lighting. The white walls help this. The mirror was £40 from Dunhelm Mills and I love it. 

My best part of my room is the wall with the Clothes rail and my inspirational quote. The clothes rail was just £8.99 from Argos and I bought some of the black non slip coat hangers from Primark to hang up some of my dresses. I also put fairy lights round the rail to make it a little more pretty.

The quote came from The Range and it was £8.99 and I had to get this as I said in the TMI tag this is my favourite quote and so I had to have it for my wall. 

So I still have to fully sort all my makeup out as all my drawers are a little mixed up at the moment. I may do a Makeup collection and storage post when I'm happy with it all. 

So I'm now off to have a much needed Kip as Im falling asleep whilst writing this but really wanted to get this wrote up tonight. 

And a big thank you goes to the BF for letting me take over a room and also for all the drilling and screwing he did to make this possible .... he's a good egg!!

..... Also he was sick of seeing all the makeup in the bedroom haha 

Anyone got any storage post if so leave you links would love to read them
