Apyy Kids Co- Drink up*

Hi everyone,

So we are at the point in the year now when the little ones are starting to get a little bit restless. you might be trying to think about ways to try and keep them entertained or keep things fresh. Sometimes something little can make a big difference.

What about switching up their drink in their lunchbox?

Appy Kids Co have the perfect juice drinks. They kindly sent me over some of their tropical Minion juice drinks to try out.

They are so tasty. I don't know if you ever get a taste in your mouth, and whatever it is you really want to have it. That's what I kept getting with these. I would get a taste of them in my mouth and I would just have to get one to drink. They were a big hit with my family to.

No only are they so tasty but they are healthy to. They contain Vitamins C, E and A, these all help together to make up a better immune system for little ones. The fruits used are green apple, orange, peach, apricot, banana, mango, passion fruit and stevia.

They also come in cool boxes. Each box has a joke and a spot the difference game. In a standard box you get 5x200ml pouches of drink.

You can buy Appy Kids Co products online from Ocado and Amazon. You can also find a list of in store stockists here.

These are definitely something that will brighten your little ones lunchbox, especially when they have their favourite character on them.

What do you put in your little ones lunch box?

Spider Crush Forage- Game Review (Android)

Hi everyone,

So I have never reviewed a game before, so this is something new for me. I love playing all sorts of different games. I especially love ones I can play on my phone or on a tablet, they are a great boredom buster for on the go.


The game I am going to review for you today is called Spider Crush Forage. This game is free (this game does give you the option to make in-app purchases) to download and is currently only available to Android users. You can download for free on the Google Play store. Also, if you are a spider lover, this ones for you.


I love puzzle games, so when I found out about this I was really excited to try it. It is really quite addictive by trying to complete the level with the amount of moves given to level up. Also, if you can't complete a level and you loose your lives, it keeps you coming back to try to complete the levels. There are 50 levels to try and beat.


I love the colour scheme and the brightness. I also love that the sound effects aren't in your face. I love that when you make a good move or get a chain of good moves it says things like 'delicious' and 'tasty'. It makes you want to try and do those moves more as you know you are doing well. When you match more than 3 tiles, you get a special tile. The more squares you match the better the special tile.


Another thing I like about the game is the 'wheel of fortune' feature. Everyday it offers you a free spin. There are lots of good perks you have a chance of winning. There are prizes such as '+5 lives' and '15 seeds'. Seeds can be used to purchase more spins on the wheel.


There are a few areas for improvements from me. One is the spiders running all over the tiles of the game board. It can get a little annoying, but I guess this is part of the game. Another is that I would like the spiders on the tiles to be a little bolder and clearer. The last point I will make is, I wish it was available for Apple users, that way I can play on my mobile.

Other than that, I am hooked. I really enjoy playing this game.

Do you like puzzle games?

I hope you all have a happy Halloween!

What Darcie Wore: The beginning of something new

Hi everyone,

So a little while back I thought I would start a new blog post series called Darcie's Wardrobe. However, I only managed to do the one post. I am forever buying Darcie clothes and the sixes get all mixed up, my boyfriend puts the clothes away, or there is just far too much to even think about photographing for a post. Not only that, in these posts you don't get to see Darcie wearing the clothes. This is when I had the thought of doing a new series called 'What Darcie Wore'.

I love taking photos of Darcie in her clothes and every now and then I will do a photoshoot with her. She absolutely loves the camera, so I thought it would be a shame not to share some of these photos with you. Obviously, these photos are not professional, it's just me with my iPhone 7 (until I get a proper camera) and Darcie having a bit of fun. I will probably end up putting a few of these posts up a month or whenever we take some new photos. I currently have 3 sets to upload. 

For my first post Darcie is wearing:

Rimmel London #FREEYOURFACE*

Hi everyone,

You may have seen pictures on my Instagram that I was lucky enough to receive my first Influenster VoxBox! This VoxBox had complimentary Rimmel London products in for me to try out. I love Rimmel products, I have been using Rimmel products right from when I started wearing makeup. I love Rimmel as a brand as it's so affordable and you can pick their products up really easily. Rimmel have a stand in my local supermarket, so it is super handy if I have run out of one of my favourite products and all the shops are shut in town. A big thumbs up for availability and pricing!

I'll stop rambling and get to the products.

First off is the new Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation.

010 light porcelain, #FREEYOURSKIN, 25hr, SPF 20

I have tried a Rimmel foundation before and it didn't fit my skin tone, so when I received this I was a little worried it wouldn't match up. However, Rimmel have done so well with this! I was so happy that a Rimmel foundation fits my skin tone! I received the shade '010 Light Porcelain', which is the second lightest shade. I would like to try the lightest shade to see which one works best for me.

The Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation offers a buildable light to medium coverage. I was able to achieve both a light coverage and a medium coverage, so I am happy it lives up to what it says. The foundation claims to be moisturising for up to 25 hours. It also has SPF 20 in, even at this time of the year we still need to protect our skin.

The foundation comes with a doe foot applicator, which I have never seen with a foundation before. Obviously it isn't tiny like you get with a lip gloss or with some concealers, it is considerably bigger. This may not be to everyone's liking but I actually quite like that it is something different. I like the fact that it is flexible and rotates, making it easier to get into all the nooks and crannies of your face. I also found the foundation easy to blend. As a nice perk, unlike some foundations I have tried, this one has quite a pleasant smell to it. I love how lightweight the foundation is and yet you are still getting a decent amount of coverage. The 'Breathable skin technology' definitely works for me. You can find this shade and lots of others at superdrug.com for £8.99.

SPF 20, 010 Light Porcelain, #FREEYOURFACE

Next up the Lasting Finish Breathable concealer.

25 hr, 001 Light Ivory, #FREEYOURFACE

I received the shade '001 Light Ivory', this is the lightest shade in this particular concealer. This concealer comes with a little cushion applicator at the end. Again, this is something I haven't personally seen on the end of a concealer, so I was keen to try this out to.

001 Light Ivory, #FREEYOURFACE


I love how well matched the foundation and concealer are. The concealer works well with the foundation to conceal imperfections. The concealer gives a medium coverage, whilst again not feeling heavy at all. I was a little unsure of the sponge to start with, but after a couple of uses it is something I got the hang of. I love the fact I have found a foundation and concealer that are so lightweight it doesn't actually feel like I am wearing any, but I still have that bit of coverage I need to give me that bit of confidence. You can find the shade I received and others at superdrug.com for £6.49.

I also received:

The Kate Sculpting palette in 'Coral Bliss'.

Cara Delevingne, #FREEYOURFACE, contour, highlight, blush

I love how this is everything you need to help define your face. I loved trying this out as it is not something I would have necessarily have picked up for myself. I am so glad I have been able to try this. It is super handy that you can take it out in your bag for any on the go touch ups you wish to make.

Coral Glow, #FREEYOURFACE

I also love the fact it has a helpful guide on the back, so if your new to contouring and defining your face, you'll know exactly what to do. This also comes in another shade called 'Golden Bronze'. You can find 'Coral Glow' at boots.com for £6.99.

contour, highlight, bronze, blush, #FREEYOURSKIN

Last but not least is the Rimmel London Moisturing Lipstick in shade Vintage Pink.

#FREEYOURSKIN

I love this shade! It's perfect for autumn and it is super moisturising. This lipstick formula contains vitamins A, C and E. I love the smell of this to. There are so many different shade that you can choose from to. You can find 'Vintage Pink' and loads of other shades over at amazon.co.uk.

Vintage PInk, #FREEYOURSKIN

I thought I would finish with my finished look. (Excuse the selfie, I know, I look terrible!)
