LATEST IN BEAUTY

For the past 3 months I have been subscribed to Latest in beauty

Which is not like any normal subscription box you get to pick the products that you want to receive.

So here’s my video I recorded yesterday when it came via Mr Postie

Let me know what you think and also do you get a subscription box each month, I’d love to know.

BLOGMAS #9

Who doesn’t love some festive nails…so I have included just a few that you can either get your nail technician to do or if you want to get creative, try them yourself.

Me personally I have naturally long nails so never go to a salon to have them done, and I only wish I had two steady hands instead of just the one 🙈

Happy Monday and I hope your as organised as you can be. There’s still 2 weeks yet.

Then I just smile

This is a tired me, but so glad I got my smile back.

You see I went through school with braces on… No pictures to prove as I hated these metal things what I couldn’t remove so I shyed away from the camera.

Then a few years ago my dentist at the time seriously buggered up big time

So my teeth went from this pic above which look quite normal….

To this after just a check up and hygienist visit i was fuming

So they closed it up doing something called a bridge. Then after a year or so it started to go a bit grey on my right front tooth… So I enquired… You will have to have root canal they said.

So that was about 2 months ago and it totally killed my tooth so today I had my permanent crown on and it doesn’t look like it isn’t my actual tooth.

So the pic you saw at the start is a smile of thank fook for that as I lost my confidence to show my teeth. Now I can all I like.

That’s my little update.

Have a fab weekend my loves 😁

The return of the fringe

I was looking through some old photos of myself and it seems that the fringe has been a love hate relationship.

However I wanted to look at the ones of me with longer hair with one so I can decide what I’m going to do with my mop once it gets to that length.

So this is 2008 and I think that a boyfriend I was with at the time saw a old pic of me with a fringe and said I looked ‘hot’ with one so I went and got one, safe to say when he dumped me I pinned it back and grew it out 🙈

This next one was 2014. I had grown my bob that was blonde to above my shoulders and thought I’d dye it brown and bring back the fringe. I think in this pic I look younger than I did in the first. I think I got fed up of getting it trimmed and it went…again.

This is me today 2019 for future readers. This is a £20 amazon wig. I’m actually really digging it. It’s very close to natural colour so I can dream of when it’s this length. I may brave it and wear it out, well my theory is its gonna keep my ears warm in the winter.

Have you had any hairstyles that just keep creeping back in?

Go Au Natural with some natural skincare

Wow I am totally blown away by the following products I had as a birthday present from my sister in law.

I had never really used products that were so natural and organic, I just would go for a scent or what the product said it did and that was it.

This wild rose beauty balm is truly a miracle in a little jar.

It acts as a moisturiser on those dry spots and you can also use it to remove your make up at the end of the day. The big plus is that it smells absolutely gorgeous.

Next is this reviving white tea face mask that isn’t too heavy on the skin and leaves a fresh and clean feel. I love it already.

Who doesn’t love a facial mist? This is in the same scent as above. When you just want your skin to be hydrated this one will have your back… Well your face technically.

If you suffer with the odd anxious moment, then this little roll on will come to your rescue. It has lavender in it which is relaxing, as you all know. Well if you didn’t you do now.

Before you nod off I really do rate this beauty sleep serum that doesn’t leave a sticky residue or anything just helps aid your sleep and makes your skin fabulous at the same time.

It all comes in this lovely little bag that you can either keep them all in or reuse it for something else. Think it’s perfect for travelling.

You’ll always get a leaflet telling you all about the product itself which I think is very useful.

Fierce Female Friday Week 4

Happy Friday my lovelies. This is last week of Fierce Female Friday. Today we have the lovely Chanelle.

Chanelle is a small town blogger from New Zealand who tends to blog mostly about beauty and lifestyle. She blogs to express her passion for makeup and enjoys interacting with other bloggers.

Here are the Q and A’s

1. What makes you feel powerful?

I feel powerful when I’m able to help someone and share knowledge. Also, wearing bright fuchsia lipstick makes me feel happy and confident – it’s MY colour!

2. What 3 strong women do you look up to?

1. My mum – I am who I am mostly because of her. She has taught me important lessons and has had to go through a lot in life. She brought up two children on her own which can’t have been easy.

2. Shania Twain – I have listened to Shania’s music since I was a young girl. Music makes me happiest and it was an honour to be at Shania’s first ever New Zealand show in 2018 (she even touched my hand). Her life hasn’t always been easy and her attitude to keep fighting and keep going is inspirational.

3. Cheating a little here but Kylie and Dannii Minogue – I cant pick a favourite and I look up to them both! They are proof that hard work and determination will get you far. They always bounce back when faced with adversity.

2.What advice would you give to someone needing to find their inner fierceness?

Really get to know yourself and who you are, what you like, what you don’t like etc. – this shows you have a standard and if people come along and try and walk over you and make you change they won’t be able to. Trust your gut instinct. Don’t be afraid to spend time alone. Know that it’s ok not to do what everyone else does. Most importantly, be kind to yourself!
