Everything changes..

I have been battling with my blog name for awhile now. I had been seeking the advice of others whether to change the name or not and most people said it was a great idea. After a lot of thought I decided against it. Instead opting for an intriguing new header instead. 'Paint the UK Pink' is a unique name and a name that my readers now associate me with. Changing it would cause confusion and a drop in readers I'm sure. It would mean having to change all my links and knowing me I'll miss an important one. Have you ever changed your blogs name? How did it go down with your readers?

I love my new header, naturally sticking with my pink theme. Can you imagine me in blue?! :O I designed it myself however the pink brush isn't my own, I wish it was. I also updated my picture with something more recent. Every time I dye my hair my whole look changes. I just have to update my profile page and I think I'm just about there, for the mean time anyway. I have to thank my many teenage years on Myspace for teaching me how to use HTML.

I've been trying so hard to create a blog button but each time I upload it the grab box is empty. I have hunted high and low for different html codes but not found one that works for me. It must be me that's doing something wrong because I doubt all those codes can be wrong. I would really appreciate someones help on this. If you have a code that has worked for you drop it into a comment for me to give a try :)

Contraception: Mirena Coil - the good and the bad

I have just finished work and was looking forward to chilling with some chocolate while I caught up on my homework. Instead I'm on the verge of tears, pressing my hot water bottle to my stomach as hard as I can to stop the pain :( You see 3 weeks ago I had the Mirena fitted by my doctor. I had tried everything else and this was my last option. I suffer from terrible cramps and the doctor thought I could have endometriosis for awhile but said if I did it was only mild. She said women who suffer from the pain of endometriosis use the Mirena to control the pain, so I was encouraged to do the same.

April Glossybox UK Review

My first Glossybox! I have never been interested in receiving sample boxes, they seem very expensive for just a couple of samples from brands I would never use. I have been hearing good things about Glossybox and reading up on posts from other bloggers. It seems Glossybox have taken on board that bloggers want to trial products from brands they have actually heard of. After a lot of consideration I decided to opt for a 3 month subscription as the longer the subscription the cheaper the package. I knew I’d want more than one box to really give a good report to my readers. I can’t recommend a sample box on just one use.

Garnier Moisture Match Review

I have seen this on posters all around the city and it was just begging me to buy it. My skin is so awkward, I find it hard to find a moisturiser that doesn't sit on my face but also provides enough moisture for my dry patches. So when I heard about Garnier Moisture Match for combination to oily skin it was the first on my shopping list.
It's tag line is 'Shine Be Gone'

Nailene Ultra Quick nail glue review

I've been meaning to review this little beauty for some time. It's become a staple in my nail collection. I have to wear fake nails these days as my own are so brittle that they break half way down the nail easily. On my thumb nail at the minute its spilt on both sides! Maybe it's my diet, but I think it's more than likely to do with the amount of chemicals I have to handle, often without gloves, at work.

March Skincare Empties


I hope you all had a wonderful Easter ♡  How many eggs have you eaten already? I've only had the one this year. I've had lots of mini eggs to make up for it though ^-^ It's been a couple of years since we celebrated Easter properly. One year I think I bought Stu near on 15 eggs! Admittedly I was working in a Supermarket at the time and got a fab discount.
