Rachael Divers Makeup Artistry in the Media

I was so happy to open my local paper and see that I’d made it onto the pages to share the news of my recent award. The Barnsley Chronicle had kindly written all about my recent win in the LUX Wedding Awards as the Best Bridal Hair and Makeup Salon in Barnsley 2017!

As a business owner, I find it so important to keep ensuring that myself and my business stay relevant by taking part in industry awards and pushing the boundaries of my work. It’s also equally important to me to ensure that my service is always professional, friendly and first class.

As I mentioned in my winner announcement post, I have no idea who actually put me forward for the LUX Wedding Awards, but I owe them a huge thank you!

Secret Scent box review and discount code

Secret Scent Box recently reached out to me and asked if I’d like to receive one of their boxes to review. They also offered me a 15% discount code for my gorgeous YouTube viewers.*

Of course, I said yes! I’ve always been interested in the idea of Secret Scent Box, but being quite a picky perfume wearer, I’d always stuck to my beauty boxes instead of going for a straight up scent box.

So, what is Secret Scent Box? It’s a monthly UK fragrance box subscription that allows you to discover three different scents each month, delivered right through your letterbox. The scents will always be new designer or branded perfumes or colognes, and each box provides enough perfume for 30 days. With 9ml of fragrance in total, you should be able to get around 4 sprays per day without running out before your next box. You can also choose from a Men’s and a Women’s box to tailor your fragrances.

The perfume brands include the likes of Jimmy Choo, Givenchy, Ralph Lauren, Chanel, Prada and more. The box is £15 per month with free UK and Europe delivery.

My main review of Secret Scent Box is going to be on my YouTube channel video below, so be sure to watch it to hear my thoughts and take advantage of the 15% off discount code. Don’t forget to hit the subscribe button so you don’t miss any videos in the future.

*Although the Secret Scent box has been sent to me for review, I always give my honest opinion and will never be swayed on the promise of a complimentary product.

My Accutane Journey | Month 3: Liver tests and skin progress

In some ways it feels like I’ve been taking Accutane for such a long time, and in some ways, it doesn’t feel like two minutes since I first took those two little pills.

My Accutane Journey | Month 3: Liver tests and skin progress | Rachael Divers

I started to take the acne-curing ‘miracle’ drug back in April, and honestly, I haven’t looked back since. Saying that, month three has presented me with a new side effect – extreme tiredness! First of all though, let me tell you about my blood test results. If you’ve been following my Accutane journey you’ll know that I’ve had problems with my liver gamma results. In short, my levels were higher than they should be and continued to climb with every blood test that I had. Because of this, I had to have blood tests every four weeks to check my levels and ensure that I was safe to continue on the drug. This time, I was worried that my results would be higher still and that I’d be taken off the drug. I’m so pleased to say that my liver results were stable and had not risen any further since the last time. This meant that I could have my prescription as usual, and the nurse told me I could forgo the blood test next time which feels like a nice treat! To stay on the safe side, I’m staying on the same dose which is two 20mg pills a day which makes my dose up to 40mg daily in total.

Anyway, back to the side effects! As soon as month three hit it was like my body just decided that it’d had enough and demanded sleep, sleep and more sleep. Running my own business and being busy with appointments of course meant that I couldn’t sleep my days away like I so wanted to and some days were and still are extremely hard, emotionally draining and exhausting. I told my nurse about the side effect and she reassured me that this is very normal and is indeed a side effect of Acctuane. She told me to make sure I was drinking plenty of water seen as Accutane dries the body out which in turn leans to dehydration and lethargy. I haven’t felt tiredness like this in absolute years, but I’m going to persevere and look after my body with good food, plenty of water and exercise.

I decided to add another vlog to my YouTube channel about my hospital appointment so I hope that you enjoy watching it! I’ll pre-warn you that the vlog is absolutely packed full of my beautiful little Chihuahuas, so expect to see plenty of cuteness!
