Sunday Shopping

Today I finally managed to get my mitts on Barry M's Pink Iridescent and it's sooooo pretty and I can't wait to get it on my nails and a NOTD up !!

I have been trying for weeks to get my hands on a bottle and today was my lucky day. It's not the only Barry M missing from my collection, the other elusive nail paint is Mushroom.

I have tried online and in boots and superdrug in several different towns and cities. The Barry M nail paint saga continues, stay tuned !

Rock Face Minerals Review Part 1

I was lucky enough to receive some products from Emma at Rock Face Minerals. I was sent a range of products to review.

This review is devoted to the Natural Lip Balm I have been using the Sheer Clear Lip Balm for a few weeks now.

Rock Face Minerals say It's Made by hand, in small batches to order, these lipbalms are packed with lovely natural ingredients to pamper and condition your lips.

What's In My Natural Lip Balm ?

Contains coconut oil, grapeseed oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, sweet almond oil, vitamin E, aloe butter, candelilla wax

The Sheer Clear is one of two lip balms in the current range. The other is mauve a tinted lip balm

It is very easy to apply and there is no mess unlike alot of other lip balms that are packaged in pots.It's texture isn't too sticky and it has a pleasant,natural scent so your nose will be happy all day long!
After only a few days my lips were feeling more pampered.

The Lip Balm is compact and light,Ideal for your bag,dressing table or pocket.It's a steal at £5.00.

Weekly Weight Update

I lost another 1lb it's ok but not as much as I would have liked.Considering I have been eating and working odd hours, it's not so bad.

I'm no expert or doctor but I thought I would share some of my insights into losing weight and having a healthier lifestyle and what I have found useful with a dash of don't try this at home.

NB I must stress if you are looking to embark upon a lifestyle change, please
contact your gp for a general health check and make sure they are ok with
going ahead.

Firstly I would recommend making small changes to start with or at least for the first few weeks.

DTTAH - Trying to change everything at once may cause you to become demotivated or to go on a sugar/grease food bender. Rome wasn't build in a day, and yes I have done it .Comedown is bitch not to mention, your own disappointment .

Suggestion one

Increase your water intake whether it's sparkling or still or a combo of the two.
Also if you are a lover of hot drinks like me and enjoy the sugar,
  • you could use sweetners or have sugar in every other hot drink.
  • Or decrease the number of sugars you have in a single hot drink.
  • Or if your feeling brave and fancy going cold turkey cut them out completely.
Until next time my dear readers, happy reading and stay pretty !

A Very Merry Un-birthday to me

It was my birthday a few weeks ago but because some of my friends were away in august for holidays and festivals I decided to have my celebrations on Saturday.

As I love the Alice in Wonderland and dressing up it seems only right to have a mad hatter's tea party.

So I thought I would share with you some photos and my cupcakes !

Homemade cupcakes not bad for a first attempt, I thought.

I was the Red Queen serious

........with a side of silly

And a close up for the shoe fans
