Keeping My Skin Hydrated & Glowing With The No7 Hydraluminous Range


Danielle Levy, No7, No7 Skincare, skincare blogger, beauty blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

I don't know about anyone else but with the start of the cold Winter weather, my skin has become so dry and dull. I think it's a combination of both the cold weather but also having the heating on more has completely dried out the skin on my face and body and has left it looking as dull as when I'm sick. For the past couple of week I've been switching out some of the products in my usual skincare routine for some of the No7 Hydraluminous goodies I was recently sent.

Improving My Sleep | Luna & Leaf Review


Danielle Levy, Luna and Leaf, CBD, health blogger, lifestyle blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

Sleep is at the centre of everything we do, fitness, food, and your health. Everything revolves around sleep and not just how much sleep you get but also the quality of sleep you get. Since going back to work I've definitely noticed that my sleep patterns and my quality of sleep is all over the place and whilst I've been trying out a couple of things to help me get a consistent sleep, nothing has been a real game changer. So I was so excited when the lovely folks at Luna & Leaf offered to send me a sleep kit to allow me to get a good nights sleep to support my great days!

The Perfect Bralette For Bigger Busts | Tutti Rouge


Danielle Levy, Tutti Rouge, fashion blogger, lifestyle blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

Since my late teens I have been unfortunately blessed with a bigger bust and as I've grown up it has definitely impacted my fashion choices. For years I've seen companies and influencers talking about how amazing bralettes were and how people have swapped from wearing underwired bras to wearing bralettes at all times, but as someone who has to spend at least £40-60 for an unwired bra that truthfully isn't even that comfortable but frustratingly I've never found a brand that offers sexy looking bralettes for a bigger busts until I met Tutti Rouge.

Staying On Track With My Long-Term & Short-Term Goals | Mal Paper


Danielle Levy, Mal Paper, Daily Goal Setter Planner, stationery, lifestyle blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

We're finally coming towards the end of the year and with the closing of the year I start looking for a new planner that allows me to keep track of everything in my life so I don't have to have several different books on the go for all the different parts of my life. You could say that I'm pretty picky when it comes to the planners that I use so you know if I'm saying that I love one, it's got to be pretty great. Now I am usually a person that loves a January to December 12 months planner but everything that has happened this year has made me fall in love with undated planners because I can dip in and out of planner as I need to, I've recently started using the Mal Paper Daily Goal Setter planner and I'm completely in love with it.

Since the middle of this year I've really been trying to focus on improving my physical and mental health.

My Nightly Pamper Routine To Sleep Soundly | Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon Review


Danielle Levy, Dermalogica, Sound Sleep Cocoon, skincare blogger, beauty blogger, Wirral blogger, Liverpool blogger,

Since going back to shift work after my episode of shielding, I've really appreciated having a proper night time routine and I found that having small moments of self care in my daily routine was more achievable for me rather than focusing on having a day of self care at the end of my week. This change in my nightly routine was 100% fuelled by adding the Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon into my night time skincare routine.

Is it just me or is your razor the one beauty thing you always forget to replace on a regular basis and it just sits on the wall in the shower?! Hair removal is definitely something that I am a bit hit and miss with doing, it's always something that I've done for me and not for a guy or because society says that I should do. Let's face it I have very light blonde body hair so 99% of the time you can barely see it so if one day I really don't feel like doing it, I simply don't. I was recently introduced to Estrid, an amazing female-focused razor brand that completely alines with my views on shaving so I wanted to share it with you all!

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!

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

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.

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?

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.

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.

Now I don't know about you but I have a lipstick addiction and what's probably even worst is that I don't even wear lipsticks everyday all day because of work and makeup free days but boy that does that not stop me from picking up lip products or buying new lip product launches. Now since I've been into watching YouTube videos I've always loved videos with Safiya Nygaard and after watching so many bad makeup science videos, you know when I spotted her launching her own lipsticks I had to get my hands on them!

We're starting to get to a point in Liverpool where these clear, blue skies and sunshine is becoming more of regular thing rather than a lucky coincidence so I couldn't think of a better time to start talking about the importance of wearing sunscreen and my experience testing out the new Invisible Physical Defence from Dermalogica.

Review: Shea Moisture Daily Hydration Bodycare



Is anyone else's skin starting to suffer from too much sun and not drinking anywhere near as much water as they should?! For the past couple of weeks I've subbed out my usual body care products to test out the Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration body wash and body lotion to see if they can save my skin during lock down.

Pampering Myself At LILSPA

As you may be able to tell by now I'm trying to spread out the content from everything I got the chance to do before everything went into lock down. Now I am most definitely in the group of people that loves going for a pamper and whilst I love having my nails done I don't get them done anywhere as often as I'd like to so you know that having some annual leave meant only one thing......getting my nails done & pampering myself!

Anyone desperately in need of some pampering right now?! Before everything went into lock down I was lucky enough to be invited along to Molton Brown Liverpool for a bit of pampering and to check out the new Milk Musk fragrance launch. As soon as I got the invite you know my butt was there with my gorgeous friend Laura to have an afternoon of pampering.
