Château Impney Afternoon Tea review

I visited the beautiful Château Impney on a gorgeous sunny day to try their afternoon tea.

The Château is located in Worcestershire and is an absolutely stunning place to visit and stay.
Built in 1875, it was the dream home of John Corbett, a local businessman who made his fortune mining salt.
He married a beautiful French lady and when they had a growing family he decided to build a magnificent château to honour his wife's home country.
Unfortunately, John and his wife separated years later and she left to live in Wales while he remained at the château alone. He then decided to open the grounds to the public so they could enjoy it too.

Now the chateau is a beautiful hotel where everyone can enjoy the chateau itself and the grounds.
Plus the afternoon tea!

I had the Chateau Afternoon Tea at £13.95. There is also a Chateau High Tea that includes extra sandwiches and cream cakes at £16.95. Great for sharing.

Glossybox May 2014 review!

The May Glossybox is a collaboration with Superdrug who are celebrating 50 years!
I was excited to see what was inside this special box.
Let's see!

 I do like the themed box designs!

First up, a full size Max Factor Facefinity All Day Primer.
I am so happy I have this! I like the Facefinity foundation and was thinking of buying the primer, so this is great it's in my Glossybox! Full size too - perfect.

Next up another full size product! A Maybelline Great Lash mascara.
I do love this mascara. I haven't used it in a while because I'm a bit of a mascara addict and chop and change and try different ones all the time.
But I'm confident as soon as I put this on, it will give me great lashes! Fab item.

Birchbox May 2014 Review!

I have been looking forward to the May Birchbox after I found out we could be getting a Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, plus everyone would receive a Benefit They're Real! mascara, which I love.

So, lets check out the Birchbox/Harper's Bazaar collaboration box!

 I love the box design. Exotic and summery!

So first up is a 3ml sample of Aromatherapy Associates 'Relax Light' bath and shower oil.
I'm liking this sample! It's a one time use, either add it to a bath or use it on the body before showering.
It smells relaxing and exactly like a spa. One of my favourite scents!
I'm going to save this for when I've had a particularly hard day and need a chill out.

Next is a mini size Benefit They're Real! mascara.
I do love this mascara so I'm always happy to get a sample. It really does lengthen my lashes quite a bit. If I use it for a while I tend to get used to it, then try something else and quickly realise just how good They're Real! is.

Then we have a mini 50ml Philip Kingsley 'One More Day' dry shampoo.
I'm a big fan of dry shampoo. It really does help get another day out of my hair and it's a chore doing my hair! This 50ml will give me a couple of uses so that's a good way to test.
I've not used the Philip Kingsley one before so I'm hoping it will be a good one!
