Amy Evans X Charlotta Eve

9th March 2017
Charlotta Eve

A few months back I was browsing Bloglovin’ and came across a blog I instantly loved, Charlotta Eve. Filled with full face beat pictorials, innovative skincare and exotic travel. Wanting to find out more about the girl behind the blog I read her bio and felt a little jolt of excitement when I learned that she was Finnish.

I’ve been a regular reader ever since. Charlotta Eve is a professional cosmetologist from Helsinki. She came up with the idea for a Q&A post collaboration. I loved this idea as her blog is a favourite of mine!

Charlotta kindly translated her questions into Finnish for me. I wish I could speak multiple languages, I always think the rest of Europe totally put us to shame as they can speak English perfectly and often multiple languages. One goal of mine is to learn to speak a Scandinavian language as they are quite interchangeable apparently.

Sensodyne Pronamel

31st January 2017

For the past few years I’ve had sensitive teeth -something I attributed in part to the amount of Diet Coke I used to drink- so every few months when it gets painful I’ve pulled out the Sensodyne for a few weeks to reduce it. Sensodyne works wonders in that respect, removing any pain and allowing me to go back to my normal toothpaste in-between.

My reason for not sticking with Sensodyne all the time is largely the taste, it doesn’t feel as refreshing as a normal super minty toothpaste so for me it doesn’t make a good day-to-day product unless I’m experiencing sensitive teeth.

I was invited to try Sensodyne’s Pronamel range which is intended for daily use and fighting one of the leading causes of sensitive teeth, acid erosion.

Enamel is the white outer layer of your teeth which protects what is underneath. If you have healthy enamel your teeth will be very white, although over time acidic foods and drinks erode the enamel and expose the yellow and dull dentine underneath.

Lots of food and drink from fruit to soft drinks and even salad dressing can have a negative impact on tooth enamel. Some of these acidic foods are part of a healthy and balanced diet so rather than trying to cut them out, protecting teeth each day seems like a logical approach.

I was sent to try the Sensodyne Pronamel toothpaste, mouthwash and tooth brush. Both the mouthwash and toothpaste have a really minty fresh taste, I’ve been using both for two weeks and haven’t had any issues with my teeth feeling sensitive which can sometimes happen with new toothpastes.

As acid erosion is one of my main dental concerns I like that I’ve discovered a range which can help combat that whilst working as a normal day-to-day routine.

The Blogs I’ve Loved Reading In 2016

26th December 2016

Almost a year ago I started a new ‘series’ on my blog (read: one post) where I listed the blogs I most loved reading. Whilst in retrospect regularly posting this would have been kind of overkill, I think an update is long overdue!

These are the blogs I go straight to in Bloglovin’ and open all posts in new tabs so I can binge. If you’re looking for some new reading material for 2017, these are my suggestions.

A/W Bag Wishlist

19th October 2016

I have a serious handbag addiction, something I’ve become acutely aware of whilst migrating all my clothes to my new wardrobe room. I love the fun designs from SkinnyDip and could spend hours drooling over Vivienne Westwood.

I love that it’s time to get all my Autumn and Winter clothes out of storage, this is by far my preferred time of year in terms of fashion, I just feel so much more comfortable and ‘me’ in A/W.

Closed – 1 Month To Go & An Anastasia Beverly Hills Giveaway!

31st March 2016
giveaway

It’s almost April which means I have one full month left to go before my wedding, eek! My initials aren’t going to spell my name anymore and I SERIOUSLY need to get my act together as in a few weeks I’ll be in Iceland, with no MUA, no hair dresser and who knows what weather to contend with.

To celebrate the countdown to my big day and as a thank you to everyone who comments on my posts with advice, product recommendations and words of encouragement, I’m going to be running a giveaway on my little blog.

50 Happy Things

16th March 2016

I’ve always wanted to do the 100 Happy Days project, but haven’t for fear of not completing it or annoying people with daily posts. Also I think it would be pretty hard and I would end up taking them in bulk.

With that said it’s such a nice idea, this post is heavily inspired by it, 50 things which make me happy, on this cloudy Wednesday.

Life Lately.

29th February 2016

Why is it you can be tired all day but the minute you hit the pillow, night brain decides to kick in and suddenly you’re thinking of all the things? During one of these irritating episodes recently I found myself browsing Twitter -I know, blue light, not promoting sleep etc- and decided to run a little poll to find out what people thought about me posting more lifestyle stuff again. The other sleep deprived Tweeters online at the time voted in favour of this and so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to post an update every once in a while.

I can’t believe 2015 is over already!

I started this blog in July and have loved discovering new bloggers and vloggers to follow, interacting with those who read this blog, attending events and creating content; I hope that over the course of the next year I get to do lots more of this and keep learning and improving.

I’m going to be taking a little blogging break whilst I’m away and work on a new design for this blog. I’ll still be reading your blogs though and active on Twitter / IG so if you’re not already, follow me there: instagram.com/fourcatsplusus & @fourcatsplusus.

Happy New Year everyone! <3
