How Life Coaching Changed My Mindset | Lauren Iles Coaching


Danielle Levy, Lauren Iles Coaching, life coaching, lifestyle blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

I've always felt like my life balance wasn't right and I spent way too much time working whether it was being a nurse or being a blogger. I spent far too much time putting my focus outwards on helping other people instead of focusing inwards on myself, taking time for me was always a goal I set for myself but I never actually ended up acting on it so when the lovely Lauren gifted me some of her coaching sessions, it honestly couldn't have come at a better time for me!

Dealing With Maskne


Danielle Levy, nurse blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger, maskne,

With the introduction of mandatory face masks when in shops, on public transport or when in places where social distancing may be difficult, more and more people are suffering from maskne and as someone that has to wear a mask at work for over 10 hours, me and my skin are definitely feeling it. For the past couple of weeks I've been trying to figure out what works best for my skin and how to tackle the Maskne I've been suffering from.

Living With Chronic Pain


Danielle Levy, health, living with chronic pain, liverpool blogger, wirral blogger,

"Having my makeup done and wearing nice clothing doesn't automatically make someone healthy", you wouldn't believe the amount of people that think just because I look nice and can get dressed up or because I don't look like I'm struggling, that I've not been in a decent amount of pain every day for the past couple of years and the toll it's taken on me.

August Favourites


Danielle Levy, August Favourites, beauty blogger, lifestyle blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

Is anyone else getting super excited for Autumn to come along or is it just me? I also feel like I was just going back to work and I blinked and August is already over, so to bring the month to an end I thought I would share all of my favourite products I've been loving including some of my work and skincare essentials that are helping me with wearing surgical face masks for over 10 hours a day.

Wearing makeup at work with a face mask?! | My current makeup and skincare favourites for work


Danielle Levy, nurse blogger, wearing makeup with a face mask, health blogger, Liverpool blogger, Wirral blogger,

I've been back at work for a couple of weeks now and me and my skin have been adjusting to wearing a surgical face mask for over 10 hours as well as getting specially fitted for our tighter fitting masks that have to be worn for different procedures. Usually for work I'll wear a full face of makeup cause without it, my face is pretty scary and it helps me to look a lot more rested when in reality I've only had 4 hours sleep. However with having to wear a mask for so long, I've really simplified my makeup routine and focused more on my skincare to take the best possible care of my skin.

Why Getting Sleep Is So Important | My Sleep Routine


Danielle Levy, Why sleep is so important, sleep routine, lifestyle blogger, nurse blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

I honestly envy those of you out there that have a 9-5 job that have a fairly consistent bedtime and wake up. Having to shield for 18 weeks was genuinely the first time in about 7-8 years that I had a consistent time that I went to bed and woke up. Having gone back to work and the mix of getting up at 5am and going to bed at 8am, it's really made me realise I was missing having a sort of routine with my sleep cause I've noticed that when I make a effort to actually do my sleep routine, my quality of sleep is so much better and I feel better physically and mentally.

Getting Back To Work After The Pandemic


Danielle Levy, nursing, life after the pandemic, Wirral blogger, nurse blogger, lifestyle blogger, Liverpool blogger,

I am very much a homebody but I still love the social side of my work, whether it be catching up with my work friends, work parties or going to blogging events and meeting my blogging friends for drinks. I never thought that being told I wasn't allowed to leave my house at all or even interact with my own family for months would change so much within me.

Why You Need Retinol In Your Skincare Routine | Dermalogica Retinol Clearing Oil


Danielle Levy, Dermalogica Retinol Clearing Oil, Retinol, Dermalogica Retinol, beauty blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

I remember being a teenager and the first thing about skincare I can recall was the whole cleanse, tone and moisturise routine, but now being in my late 20's my knowledge of skincare is just growing and growing. As my knowledge of skincare has evolved something I've been looking into trying out is retinols as it seems to be the wonder product that's on everyone's lips and I got the opportunity to try out Dermalogica's latest retinol launch so it couldn't have been more perfectly timed to slip it into my skincare routine.

Dealing With Chronic Pain | Our Remedy Review

As someone that suffers with chronic pain, I already rattle like a pill bottle with my medications to keep the pain at a manageable level so you know when it comes to that time of the month and cramps the last thing I want to take is another pill to help it not feel like my uterus is trying to turn itself inside out! Something I've been looking into since the beginning of 2020 is trying out CBD oil to see if it can help not only with my chronic pain but also if it can help with my anxiety and help calm my overactive mind.

July Favourites



I can't believe that we're already into August and I'm looking back at some of my favourites during July, 2020 has completely flown by! I vote that we don't count 2020 into our age! It's been a while since I last did a monthly favourites blog post but whilst I've been in lockdown, I've been changing up what I use and not using the same things day in day out.

First Impressions: Antipodes Skincare


Danielle Levy, Antipodes skincare, skincare blogger, beauty blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

I have been using all my time during shielding to be able to test out new products because let's face it if I have reaction or break out, nobody besides my immediate family would be seeing my face so I completely took advantage! During my period of shielding, the very lovely Em Sheldon got in touch as she was aware I am a Critical Care nurse and she wanted to show some love to NHS workers. She had kindly organised little pamper packages and she passed along my information to the lovelies at Antipodes who sent me some skincare goodies as a little thank you for being an NHS nurse.

Life In Lockdown | An Update


Danielle Levy, Vistaprint face mask, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger, nurse blogger, health blogger,

I've been shielding since the last week of March and I never could have imagined that in 2020 my life would revolve around my house for 18 weeks! It's been an utterly crazy time and things were changing on a weekly basis. 

For a large percentage of those 18 weeks, I feel like my Instagram was just filled with people baking, re-creating TikTok dance videos and creating their own home gym studios. At the beginning I didn't see a whole lot of people talking about how the lockdown was affecting their mental health and I started to compare how unproductive my day was going to how other people were spending their days. As a result I spent a fair amount of time unmotivated and spending my day in pj's just watching Netflix and cuddling with the puppy which I have no doubt she loved. Don't get me wrong, when I found out that I was going to be off work for 3 months, I had so many plans to be so productive and get so much done on my blog, I wanted to restart my YouTube channel and I wanted to completely re-arrange my bedroom. I think it started going down for me when I started listening to my little anxious voices that made me feel like I should be coming out of shielding like a new women and I shouldn't have ever listened to those voices!

It took me being honest with myself, talking to some of my best friends and getting rid of some of the negativity in my life for me to pull myself out of the anxious black hole I seemed to have fallen into. Doing what I do for work, I am so protective over my own mental health as my work can be so emotionally draining so I have to make sure I practice some self-care and look after myself. I thought I would share with you all some of the things that I found helped me right my path and help me feel like myself again.

Looking after number one ~ I took a long hard look at my life and relationships and I decided to cut out the negativity in my life and relationships that were all one sided. Putting myself first has really helped to calm my anxiety. I felt lighter and not feeling so trapped in negativity.

Pacing myself ~ I remember back when I first felt like I needed to get back to 'normal', I completely overwhelmed my weekly plan and I just looked at it and felt completely unmotivated. I started making myself a weekly list of my top 10 things I want to get done that week instead of planning out my days, this made me feel like I wasn't putting as much pressure on myself so if I had one day where I needed a day where I just had a bubble bath, watched Netflix and walked the dog then I could do that without making myself feel completely awful for taking time out for myself. 

Having a little routine ~ Being off for 4 months I realised that if I don't have a little bit of routine to my weekdays, I end up wasting far too time watching YouTube videos and playing animal crossing. It wasn't a huge big thing but it was simply getting up at a consistent time, making my bed, doing my morning skincare routine and having breakfast every day. It doesn't look like a whole lot but it was just some consistency to my day and it really helped me.

Being honest & talking to friends ~ I have never really talked about my anxiety or my mental health because I always worried about burdening someone else however I have an amazing group of friends who helped me realise that the anxious thoughts I was having weren't something that everyone suffers from and they were a great ear and allowed me to express my feelings and help me rationalise those thoughts. I can't stress how important it is to have your little support network, having someone or a group of people that you can talk to and feel supported with is so important.

Having a proper sleep routine ~ My sleep routine has cycled through probably every sleep pattern you can think of during shielding. I started off going to bed really early and getting a good nights sleep and waking up naturally before 8am to going to bed at 3am and still waking up naturally at 8/9am. No matter what time I went to sleep I still woke up between 8-10am so I found having a proper sleep routine helped. I made sure that everyday I was going to bed between 9-11pm and getting up between 7-9am, I also tried to make sure that I wasn't napping during the day which was incredibly hard as I'm undergoing changes to the treatment of my B12 deficiency so I feel like I'm running on fumes at the moment.

Thinking about what I put in my body ~ Something I realised during shielding was that at times I wasn't thinking about what I put into my body and sometimes just eating because I was bored whilst watching Netflix. Over the past month, I've been making more of an effort to think about what I put into my body as fuel. I've not been putting anything as off limits or bad, I've just been practising moderation and eating things I enjoy, practising intuitive eating and getting more activity into my day. Making these small changes has really helped me feel better and with my energy levels and how sluggish I felt during the day.

I know that once this shielding finishes at the weekend, it's going to be a slow and steady journey and it'll be a nervous couple of weeks as I get to go out but I'm exciting to get some normality into my life. 

How are you all getting on post-lockdown?

Speak to you next time!

Lounging In Style | Femme Luxe Finery Review


Danielle Levy, Femme Luxe Finery, Femme Luxe, Loungewear, fashion blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

One thing that lock down has made me appreciate is having good loungewear! I swear I've mostly been wearing either pj's or comfy lounge wear the entire time, I can't be the only one right?! I honestly have an entire draw filled with loungewear and I may have added even more sets to that drawer after finding an entire section of cute loungewear on the Femme Luxe's website.

Multi-tasking Skincare | ARK Summer Skincare Event


Danielle Levy, ARK Skincare, skincare blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

I am not that girl that has that perfect skincare routine down to a tee, sometimes (especially if I have a week of annual leave) I can be amazing at doing my skincare routine morning and night, other times if my skin is lucky I just about take my makeup off before I fall asleep. Since I've been shielding my skincare routine has suffered badly and my skin was showing the result of it, luckily I was invited to a zoom blogging event with the lovely Tamsin Styles, the CEO of ARK Skincare and I was able to talk to her about my skin concerns and get the motivation back to take care of my skin again.

Wear A Face Mask & Flatten The Curve | Air Queens Face Mask Review


Danielle Levy, Air Queens UK, face masks, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger, health blogger, nursing,

I've been slowly dipping my toes into venturing outside and getting some semblance of normality back in my life ahead of going back to work at the beginning of August. Now I know that face coverings are becoming mandatory only in shops from the 24th July, but I have made the decision that any time I leave the house I'm going to be donning a face mask to protect myself. I've got a little selection of face masks now and for the past week I've been putting the Air Queens face masks to the test to see if they work better for me as someone with a severe respiratory condition to help protect myself and flatten the curve.

Any of you long time readers may remember how much I loved trying beauty boxes last year cause it allowed me to try out different brands and you may even remember my Battle of the Beauty Boxes blog posts. I had stopped getting beauty boxes for a while because I found towards the end I seemed to just be getting the same products but in different boxes and it felt like a waste of money as a result. Que an email from Glamour announcing their new Beauty Box and you know that I was straight in there adding my name to the wait list and putting it in my cart as soon as it went live.

I am going to do a more in depth blog post all about it and my experience. Thankfully the lovely folks at Clever Fox reached out to me and asked if I would like to try out one of their planners and they couldn't have picked a better time cause trying out their Undated Daily planner really helped me to get my motivation back and be more productive during my day because I wasn't putting as much pressure into what I needed to get done that day.

January Favorites


Danielle Levy, January favourites, Dermalogica, Lush, Lush Liverpool, Sleepy body lotion, helping hands hand cream, beauty blogger, lifestyle blogger, wirral blogger, liverpool blogger,

I can't believe that we're already at the end of January, I feel like this month has completely flown by (and I fear this year might do the same as well!). With the end of the month comes another monthly favourite blog post and with the start of the new year I've been trying to get into better routines so I thought I'd share with you all some of my favourite things this month. 


Inspired Stories Diary ~ I switched up my diary this year to the Inspired Stories Diary because I wanted one that I can take on the go with me again and mainly because I missed having it in 2019. I love that not only is it compact but it's got space for weekly and monthly planning whilst also having weekly and monthly reflections as well as sections for the things I most need to do in the upcoming week and space to track a couple of habits. Not only is it so useful for my life, nursing and my blog, it also looks so pretty which helps as I'm more likely to use it!

Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment ~ I've suffered horribly with dry lips for years especially in the winter and for the past two months I've been adding this Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment into my evening skincare routine and it's changed the condition of my lips in those two months. I find it really rich and nourishing, so it's perfect for me especially after I've been in work as end up finishing work with super dry lips and this makes it seem like my lips ever had a problem by the next morning.

Dermalogica Redness Relief Essence ~ For the past two months I've added the Redness Relief Essence into my skincare routine and I feel like it's helped so much with the redness that I get onto my cheeks. I find it really lightweight and I pop it on before my serum morning and night and I find it has really helped me with the irritation and redness I get when my skin gets dehydrated during the winter and my long shifts in work. If I've got a bit more time to do my skincare routine, I pop this on and use my jade roller to massage it in. 

Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance ~ I've suffered so much with really dry skin since I was a teenager and began getting spots and I've struggled to find products that help combat it. I have previously tried out the Skin Smoothing Cream from Dermalogica and whilst that was fabulous as we came into winter, I found that my dry skin couldn't be kept at bay and I had to resort to a more intensive moisturiser, the Intensive Moisture Balance. I like that it's really rich and keeps my skin hydrated without feeling heavy and sitting on my skin. Sometimes I get a bit girl lazy and don't do my skincare routine as often I'm supposed to and I still find that this keeps my skin moisturised for longer than just the day I put it on!

The Big Bottle Co Water Bottle ~ One of my 2020 goals was to take better care of myself and one of the ways that I'm doing that is making sure that I drink enough water to keep myself hydrated. I am that type of person that if I fill up a water bottle I will drink it but then never go and fill it up again but I will get a million other different drinks, around New Year I found this water bottle in TK Maxx and I felt like it would be perfect for me as it's a 2.2L water bottle so even if I filled it up once during the day I'm still getting my 2L of water in the day.  

Lush Cookie Dough Scrub ~ I got this body scrub back in December when it came out with the Christmas collection and I'm so gutted that it's no longer as round so I'm going to have to make this body scrub last for as long as possible whilst praying that Lush decide to bring it back in the year-round collection. Not only does it smell incredible but it leaves my skin feeling so smooth. I'll use this when I'm having a proper pamper night and then slather on a body butter before bed and my skin feels so good.

Helping Hands Hand Cream ~ I am a nurse, I wash my hands and use hand sanitiser a million times during a shift so I ended up with really dry hands that can end up sore, cracked sometimes even bleeding so this year I've tried to take better care of my hands. I've gotten into always have a tube of hand cream with me, especially at work and then in the morning before bed, I lather this Helping Hands hand cream on. I love that it's nice and thick enough to protect and hydrate my skin but it melts into my skin so quickly and doesn't leave my hands greasy. I just wish that they had a version that was in different packaging as I can't really take the tub onto the unit because it's too big but I would like a refillable tube/pump package that I can keep in my scrub pocket at work to use on to go. 

Sleepy Body Lotion ~ One of my 2020 goals this year was to get better at having a bedtime routine and the Sleepy body lotion has been a brilliant part of getting into a better bedtime routine. It's filled with lavender, oat milk, tonka and cocoa butter so not only am I left with really soft skin but also helps to calm and relax my mind so I can start winding down for the night and get a good nights sleep. 

What are some of your favourites this month?

Wedding At The Merseyside Maritime Museum | Being A Bridesmaid


Danielle Levy, Being A Bridesmaid, Merseyside Maritime Museum, Wedding fair, wedding blogger, Liverpool blogger, Wirral blogger,

A few months back, my mum kindly asked me to be a part of her wedding party in 2021 and be one of her bridesmaids. Over the next year, I wanted to start including more wedding related blog posts as let's face it's going to be while before I feature any more wedding content because I'm not going to be getting married for a while so there's not really going to be any more wedding content once this wedding is done next year! The other week, myself and my mum were invited along to the wedding fair the Merseyside Maritime Museum to see the venue and what they had to offer for your special day.

Danielle Levy, Birchbox, January Birchbox, Rochelle Humes, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

It's a bit late in the month for me to be talking about my January Birchbox but it's a fabulous box so I really wanted to feature this month's box in a blog post. What more could you want than a box full of beauty products that are designed to give you beautiful, glowing skin in this gloomy weather we're having at the minute.

What I Want To Achieve At 27


Danielle Levy, lifestyle blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

I can't believe that I'm actually 27, I still feel like I've only just reached my 20's! This year I wanted to set myself some goals of things that I want to accomplish this year, alongside my new year's goals I set at the beginning of the month. These goals are something that I really wanted to accomplish this year and I don't particularly want to leave them any longer to complete.

Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment Review


Danielle Levy, Dermalogica, Nightly Lip Treatment, skincare blogger, beauty blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

I forever suffer with dry, sore lips thanks to the dry air at work, not drinking enough water and constantly forgetting to use lip balm, especially when I'm on shift so when I got a package from Dermalogica with their Nightly Lip Treatment I had to put it to the test and see if it can salvage my poor lips.

Roccabox January Edition



My 2020 started off with 7 straight night shifts so you can imagine that myself and my skin was looking a little less enthused for the beginning of the year but with the beginning of a new month comes the arrival of new beauty boxes.

Conspiracy Palette | First Impressions


Danielle Levy, Shane Dawson, Jeffree Star, Jeffree Star Cosmetics, Conspiracy Palette, Beauty blogger, Liverpool blogger, Wirral blogger,

Unless you have been living in an actual black hole, you will all know by now about the Shane Dawson X Jeffree Star Conspiracy palette and definitely one of my favourite parts of 2019 was managing to get my hands on this palette (and I'm keeping my eyes peeled for when the pig hand mirrors and liquid lipsticks come back into stock!). Whilst I presume pretty much everyone reading this already know all about it, I still wanted to share it with you all.

Top 5 Winter Lip Colours


Danielle Levy, Top Winter Lip Colours, beauty blogger, Armani, Clarins, Charlotte Tilbury, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger.

I'm carrying on the Winter vibes and wanted to feature some more beauty on my blog by sharing my top 5 winter lip colours that I've been wearing this year. I have a big drawer filled to the brim with different lip colours and I use a range of drugstore and luxury lip colours so you can imagine how difficult it was to choose my top 5 cause I am normally always switching up lip colours so finding my top 5 was so incredibly hard.
