One of the best face masks yet

montagne-jeunesse-7th-heaven-black-seaweed-peel-off-mask-reviewEvery Sunday night i like to give my face a bit of TLC and whilst out shopping in the week i spotted this Black Seaweed Peel Off Mask. At the grand price of 95p in wilkos i thought why not give it a try.

Applying it was a dream no mess apart from a few drips in the sink that was easily washed away with water. i kept it on during my bath, though singing with it on felt a tad weird but it coudnt be helped 🙂

i find peeling a face mask off so satisfying and more so when i had the results underneath. My face felt so smooth so no need for the usual moisturising and my face was glowing lovely.

I love the 7th Heaven Range i grab a variety of them each time i see them in the shop. Wilkinsons and Boots do them i know .

By far the best face mask yet and for under a pound you can’t go wrong.

The answer is always Shopping

You know when you have had one of the worst days, nothings gone right and no matter what you try to do to put it right works out either. Well that’s when Retail therapy comes in very handy. You needn’t sit in a therapists chair telling them all your woes for an hour you could be in a shop or five. Nobody to say so how do you feel about that. Once you get in that shop it will be i feel fabulous… what woes?

There is never a wrong time to go shopping. The shops in town are shut…That’s ok, grab your phone or laptop enable Wi-Fi and away you go. Getting lost on the wonderful online shops for hours on end. Putting things on wish lists and in baskets and then finally deciding sod it, lets have it all.

17eadfa97ef55d421bb82ef8dc79b54eThere is the annoying bit where you have to wait in most of the day for your parcel to arrive but when it does and you are there opening it its like a present to yourself. It instantly makes you happy of course until it doesn’t fit and then the fun of shopping starts all over again.

So if your ever feeling a little or a lot bit shite, go off shopping and by the end of it I can assure you you’ll be feeling alright 🙂

How to get organised

Processed with MOLDIV

 

The first thing that springs to my mind when i think organised is a calendar. This can either be in paper form on your wall or digitally on your phone. if you hate crossings out on your calendar then using your phone one would be better.

Personally i think the best time to write out your to do list is the night before when its fresh in mind and you know you want to get stuff done. you can always take a little notepad with you and write on the go and organise it when you get home. The satisfaction is when you have everything ticked off your list.

list

Heres an example of a tidy phone. My phone to be exact. i find it’s better putting certain apps into folders then you know where to find them and your phone looks neat and clutter free. i am one of those that hates seeing loads of notifications too so i try to clean them up as soon as i receive them.

This goes for all the crap you have piled up here there and everywhere. As soon as you do your ironing pack it away. Same goes for paperwork put it in a file or in a drawer neatly and in some sort of order. Living in mess can be stressful if you don’t have a clue where things are.

tisy-up

Set yourself a timer when you need to get tasks done and then you will always be aiming to get it completed in that alloted time. I find this one comes in very handy.

I hope some of these have been helpful and you can put them to good use.

O.P.I Disaster

When you buy a more high-end nail varnish rather than the ones your normal drugstore stocks you would expect to have results that show that it was worth spending that little bit more.

This is the culprit…Kiss me on my tulips

.14249145_10154565402719479_738544923_n

i picked it because i am a lover of pink, i loved the name of it and thought yeah this will do the trick and have staying power.

Does it hell!!

I have had it on just over a week and i have had to touch up on nearly every nail three times. i don’t know why i didn’t just give in and take it off and put something different on. i guess it was because i didn’t want one of my more expensive nail varnishes to just get thrown in the drawer never to be seen again.

To make matters worse this happened

I was not amused i have real strong nails and i catch it in something and have to just cut it off. I have to now bring myself to cut my naturally long nails down. I am well proud of how long i can get them.

Thanks O.P.I you have made me never want to get a nail varnish from your range again, sort out the product and i may change my mind… heres my blog post on a Rimmel nail varnish which proved you don’t have to spend a fortune for pretty nails and does what it says on the bottle Excuse My French…Manicure  

One of the best Eyeliners so far

As a lover of Eyeliner for 15 years…well since i was 16 i have been striving to find the right one. It has been one hell of a struggle but i think i’ve finally found it.

Whilst searching on the net i came across the website Beauty Bay. Never been on it in my life so i was in make up heaven once i started scrolling through pages of gorgeous products.

In particular this eyeliner set below:- Zoeva Black Box

It comes with 4 black eyeliners  2 pencil and two liquid

1. Cat eye pen – to get that perfect winged effect i am yet to master that in need of practice so may need to nose at some tutorials.

2. Graphic Eyes – The shade is called Black to Earth and looks like a graphic pencil you would have used in art class i have used this on my water line. It looks smooth and gives a liquid liner look which i love.

3. Soft Kohl – This is quite subtle compared to the graphics one but still gives your eyes that bit of definition.

4. Calli Graphic – i have used this in the picture below for along my lash line, The key is to put the mascara on first and then follow with this as it will be easier to apply will do a video at a later date showing you what i mean.

For £19.99 i think it was well worth the money as its waterproof

                                                i think its a winner in my eyes

What makes me tick √

Let’s delve a little bit deeper so you can get to know me a little better.

Being happy in life is one thing we all strive to achieve daily.

Heres a few things that bring a smile to my face and that can turn my frown upside down.

A playlist on Spotify

This one I am loving at the moment, I made it myself and it’s got some new songs and old on there. A song is quite a powerful thing, get the right lyrics and you got a happy listener.

Perfect Eye Candy 

These four men are just mmm.

  • My love for Colin Firth when I first saw him in Bridget Jones over a decade ago. He can be my Mr Darcy any day.
  • I managed to bag myself a VIP ticket 2 years ago to meet Paul Hollywood and got talking with him, real down to earth and very easy on the eye. Don’t know how I managed to not stutter or faint.
  • When I was 10 I went to watch Phillip Scofield in Joseph and the amazing technicolour dreamcoat. Little did i know he would become the fine silver fox that he is today. Being 3 rows back watching him perform in a loin cloth would have been more appreciated my age now.
  • Lastly, Adrian Grenier caught my eye years ago when he was the curly-haired lad in Entourage then in The Devil Wears Prada. I don’t know there’s just something about him.

mmmmmmm

A Poem with meaning

Being a lover of writing you can always find happiness in words.

This is one I have recently stumbled across, its written by a talented poet Erin Hanson. There is plenty of her work on Pinterest.

A Hug

Ever since i was a little girl i have been a hugger. I don’t go overboard with one but sometimes its just what you need. No matter who it’s from it doesn’t necessarily have to be the loving kind just at the right time.

hug

There you go, now you know me a bit better than the start of reading this.
