My Smear Test Results

Hey guys and girls, here is an update on my smear test.
I thought i would share with you all the result because i know how important smear tests are.
Sharing also reminds that not everyone has abnormal results some have normal but it is still important to go, anyway here is the update.

Letter came through the post and I notice it said nhs, releasing this was my results my heart started to beat 100 times a minute i felt a little worried scared to what I was about to read.
Then I took a deep breath and ripped open the letter like my life depended on it.

Started to read and then with relief see it said my results was normal and I am not sure my next smear until 2019 which is only 3 years away. However it does say if you have any symptoms discharge or irregular periods to contact the doctors again so they can do a test early etc as some people may need to be tested before they are due to make sure their cells are still all ok.
Bare in mind some people do get discharge etc even with normal cells but it is always important to go anyway to make sure you are safe and well.

So anyway that is my short update.

Have you had a smear?
Worried about smears?

comment below and I happy help in anyway I can.

I LOVE Coconut

I love…. coconut hand cream and body butter review.
Hello boys and girls I am back again with a review on some I love products.
Yep I have some more from the company this time I do not have a bubble bath,
but instead have a body butter and a hand cream I am excited to share with you all.

Here is The review hope you enjoy reading.

About I love..
taken from the website.

I Love is a bath, body and beauty brand that lovingly creates,
the most gorgeous, deliciously scented products in the World.

All our products are bursting full of ideas, inspiration and happiness. They are fun and sensuous and all encapsulate the most memorable, delicious and delectable scents that magically transport the user to a different place, evoking powerful memories and injecting a little piece of happiness into our customers lives.

Hand Cream

The Hand cream smells very much of coconut like it states, quite a sweet smell and kinda makes you hungry and to eat something sweet afterwards, the smell for me was nice if you love coconut this is the hand cream for you, also the hand cream is very nice on the hands I always using my hands doing housework all day long,constantly bleaching my kitchen worktops few times a day. (ocd) typing reviewing going out in all weathers like most people put my hands through so much they feel dry and horrid at the end of each day the hand cream made my hands feel soft and smoothe which was a plus.

Body Butter

Wow after a nice long soak in a very hot bubbly bath I got out the bath and as usual dried myself off. 
Then notice in my review pile My body butter sitting there, so thinking great perfect opportunity to try it I opened it and straight away the smell of coconuts hits me, it kinda also smelt like rice pudding in a weird way that sweet delicious smell I take a small scoop probably about the size of a small plum and evenly rub it on my legs, omg after just shaving them this put moisture into my skin,The body butter made my skin smell nice and feel smooth.

Overall Verdict

I really loved both products they smell delightful and sweet and made my skin feel nice and smooth, although hubby disagreed and said the  handcream  went from smelling like coconut too smelling like something else a bit like tobacco but not sure if that's because he smokes again it might be but he didn't think it smelt like coconut like I did.

although he did say the body butter smells like coconut more than the handcream did.
but i thought the hand cream smelt more of coconut and the body butter smelt like rice pudding, weird how we smell things in different ways.

But I liked the smell but did find the scent didn't last as long as i would of liked it too but like most products I  feel not many products scents last long anyway.

Overall though I am pleased with the product and am excited to go out and buy it again, maybe put some in the christmas and birthday cupboard so I can gift some to people throughout the year.

The only thing I would change about the product is having the body butter in a squirty container although i do love the one it is in already a squirty one might also be good for some people who prefer that when it comes to lotions and potions for our bodies.

I love Social media.

My First Smear Test

Yes Today I am talking about my first smear test
you may ask why and my answer is simple because I care about fellow humans.
I was so scared about having my first smear so am not surprised many woman don't go or put them off but really do wanna share with you my experience and to help inspire others to go book theirs, because it is more important then you may think those few seconds of having a test done can save your life, prevent cancer by catching bad cells early.
Anyway please feel free to read and share my post across your social media.
Guys I know this is about smears but please share this for the woman you know.


As some of you know Jade goody died of cervical cancer back in  march 2009,
A muched loved woman,wife, and mum, jade first discovered she had cancer in february meaning she died a month later.

(Taken from wikipedia) As a result of the publicity surrounding Goody's illness, on 13 March 2009 government health ministers agreed to review the National Health Service policy not to screen for cervical cancer until age 25.

(Taken from boots) What is a cervical smear test?
A cervical smear test is a test of a sample of cells taken from a woman's cervix.
It is not a test for cancer. It is used to detect abnormal cells that left untreated could develop into cervical cancer. It is the best tool to detect precancerous conditions and hidden, small tumours that may lead to cervical cancer. If detected early, cervical cancer can be cured.

The NHS has cervical screening programmes in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland to ensure women are invited for regular smear tests.
Some of the age ranges and screening intervals are being adjusted, and across the UK, the first test will be at 25, then every three years until the age of 49. Between the ages of 50 to 64 the tests are every five years.

Stats and Facts
1 in 5 women don't attend their smears, 1 in 4 (under 30's)
1 in 20 smears come back abnormal but Most abnormality clear up by themselves.
Some require simple removal. Very rare they end up as cancer x

Many women are putting off having smear tests, which is shocking because many people die of cancer each year this month already we have lost some great talent who have died from cancer, yes we all hate the c word but the c word is very very real.

Anyway Below is my experience of a smear.


So anyway I turned 25 in december and as most of you may know smear tests can only normally be done from the age of 25, well This month I had a phone call saying I needed a smear so obviously I booked as lady on phone was saying I was Overdue and it is important.

So anyway I booked the appointment along with another for a bump I have on my chin.
Anyway after I got of the phone I googled smear tests and started to feel scared upset worried, a mixture of feelings any young woman may experience when googling smear tests.

Well with this I Set up a facebook group called Smears Not Tears, for woman to talk about smears and other women's problems and just to come and chat and support each other,
anyway So added all my female friends and then began to ask and get some girls to advise me what it will be like etc.

Many of the responses from the girls were pretty much the same, to the effect that it doesn't hurt it just feels weird, others say they feel a slight discomfort others say they feel nothing.

Anyway I went to the docs spoke about the lump on my face got some antibiotics as its inflamed, and booked a blood test for my bad knees, then sat back out in waiting room, the nurse then called me in for my smear, so i told her how scared I was and it was my first one.

so she said she use the small plastic thing which is called a speculum which by the way does not hurt at all, it just feels warm from where they warmed it up.

After the speculum was put in the nurse then took a quick swap of my cervix,
the whole test only lasted 5 seconds if that and I felt amazing after knowing Its now done,
Now I have to wait 2 weeks for the results, which is the most nerve wracking I guess.

Well now I have had my smear and If you're a woman who hasn't been yet  you're probably thinking what does it feel like well it didn't feel like anything, other than warm then a little swap that was it. many people will say it feels uncomfy ie having to get your bottom half out, but trust me on this doctors have seen it all hairy or smooth.

so don't worry about getting your bits out the doctors and nurses know what they are doing, in fact they are probably pretty used to looking at vaginas just like their used to looking at noses and legs.

some people say they feel a little bit of discomfort when they take a swap it all depends, my advice is to relax hold on to the sides of the chair, tell your nurse before hand you're scared and you like her to be gentle, and if you're really worried nervous or scared take a friend.

But trust me on this Don't Be Afraid  you will be fine, the test only lasts a few seconds meaning plenty of time to go shopping after or to the movies, although some ppl rather go home watch films and relax.

you may want to take a pad with you after some people find they spot or bleed afterwards,
although I didn't experience any bleeding with mine everyone is different.

Anyway Now I have about a 2 week wait to see if My cells are Ok, 
or if they need keeping an eye on etc.

Anyway I prob am boring you but here is a link to the nhs about smear tests.
Please note smear tests are not as scary as they look or sound.

This is also a very helpful site

Nano Queratina Protein Hair Shampoo 12 oz

Taken From The Website
For superb all-over haircare, the Nano Keratin Shampoo and Conditioner will keep hair healthy, thoroughly conditioned and protected from harmful factors such as excessive straightening, relaxing, hair colouring and blow drying.  Hair is replenished and left in tip-top condition, strong and vital with exquisite shine and full of body & bounce.

MY Thoughts
Well it doesn't smell like your normal shampoo but even though I love my nice scented things the scent wasn't too bad in fact it was really nice smelling,

the thing that was little weird was the texture of the shampoo which was a bit like petroleum jelly but  I was more into testing how nice my hair felt during washing it and after washing it,
the scent was really nice although It is hard to describe what it smelt like
washing my hair felt like normal only a bit more luxury maybe because the scent was dif to my usual high street shampoos like lee stafford, vo5 etc, this shampoo may smell different to what you are used too but it is nice to try new things.
my hair after felt so nice and smoothe was really impressed from the first use although I have a long way to go until I use all the shampoo as it lathers up quite nicely which is a bonus because I have lots of hair lots and lots of thick frizzy hair..

Nano Queratina Protein Hair Conditioner Balsam Rinse 12 oz

The Nano Queratina Balsam Rinse will give all hair types a new lease of life bringing intense lustre and vitality to every strand of hair. With a unique formula and being Keratin rich, it will repair and further protect damaged hair, restoring healthy, fabulous locks to be proud of.

My Thoughts
Again same sort of scent reminded me being in a salon that's really pricey
the texture was really smooth like normal conditioner but more better if makes sense it felt as good as it smelt so I was freaking out about using too much as I wanna make it last.
my hair felt nice after use I did use more conditioner than shampoo though because of my hair's length and thickness, again my hair felt nice and soft afterwards although again I have a long way to go until i see the real results due to my hair been thick and frizzy.

Nano Queratina Protein Hair Mask Treatment 16 oz

Taken From The Website
For all-over amazing condition, the Nano Queratina Hair Conditioning Treatment will give hair everything it needs to look, feel and stay beautiful.  Hair has never looked or felt better.  Following just one use of this protein hair mask will give dramatically improved texture and condition so the hair people dream of is within easy reach!

My Thoughts
Wow what can I say I do love a Hair mask, not only does a hair mask make you feel pampered and makes your hair feel smooth like you just walked out of a hair advert, or a top salon in london It feels nice and soft and not harsh on the hair like the day to day products we normally put on our hair like hair gels  hair sprays etc.
Again the scent was really nice my hair feels refreshed.

Nano Queratina Protein Leave-in Conditioner 4 oz

Taken From The Website
The texture of dry hair and in fact most hair types will appreciate this being the best in leave-in conditioners.  The Nano Queratina leave in conditioner is full of vital nutrients designed to enhance and improve dry, brittle hair so that it always looks shiny, sleek and radiant.  Hair is left unbelievably soft, elasticity restored and guaranteed to turn heads.

My Thoughts

Again like the hair mask but this one you leave in your hair.
so you are walking around hoping someone notices your hair smells or looks better.
must admit I didn't blow dry my hair after even tho the leave in treatment can be used for blow drying because my hair is bleaches etc i am staying away from blowdrying at the moment has  have since my last post I have bleached my hair.

Overall Verdict

First of all the scent Is one of my fave parts about the shampoo etc because it felt like I just walked out of a top london salon and onto a catwalk my hair as never really smelt this great n a very long time, the products don't smell like any others i have come across on the market.

My hair felt smooth afterwards which is nice because my hair is so thick and and rough feeling normally. although my hair isn't 100% soft yet as I have a long way to go before it looks like salon sleek hair, im impressed with how well the shampoo conditioner hair mask etc has worked so far, I can't wait to carry on using it and hope it improves my hair much more then it has already Because not many products have good impact on my hair.
