I was recently lucky enough to receive some products in the post from skincare brand 'Botanics.'  Botanics is a Boots exclusive brand with a variety of skincare ranges. I have been a regular user of the 'All Bright Foaming Face Wash' for a number of months now, so when Botanics got in touch to see whether I would like to test some of the other products within the 'All Bright' range, of course, I jumped at the opportunity.






All Bright Refreshing Eye Roll-On


Being someone who is often staying up late and getting up early, you can bet that I am prone to under-eye bags. I've never considered purchasing a product to help with this issue up until recently and whilst I'm yet to see any drastic improvement, (I've been using it for a few days, but still haven't kicked the bad sleeping habits) I do love the product. When applying the roll-on to your under-eyes you're greeted with a delightful cooling and relaxing feeling. I especially love applying this before going to sleep.

Photography is something that I am constantly doing. I absolutely love taking photographs at almost every opportunity, today we were slap bang in the middle of a heatwave ~ it's literally been the hottest day I think I've ever experienced? Jake, Lottie and I decided to utilize the weather and head down to a nearby pub for a drink or two and I thought I'd share some of the images that I captured with you! I'm going to be sharing lots of little 'photo diaries' from now on, primarily as they're images I don't necessarily find fit for my Instagram feed, but don't want to lose in my camera roll!

Hey everyone, welcome back to the... I was going to say new and improved, but if anything it's the new and more simplified 'jacobblackwell.co.uk.' Over the last couple of weeks, I've been considering restarting my blog. I'd grown bored of the content that I was attempting to write, it began feeling forced and very inauthentic ~ which in return meant that I had no enthusiasm to actually write anything. Pair those feelings with the issues I was attempting to tackle behind the scenes. (suuuper slow loading times and inability to shrink down all the 2000 images on my blog.) It seemed like the best option to simply hit the restart button. I've shifted my blog back over to Blogger and started from scratch. From now on you'll be seeing new posts every Thursday, and as always you can subscribe to my newsletter from the bottom of my blog.
