What does your Sunday look like…

Mine at the mo I’ve managed to get in and wash the mop, the dizziness is still there but I can get about a bit.

I’m now sat in the garden with the sun shining listening to ‘NOW 102’ on Spotify… Here’s the playlist if you wanna listen.

I’ve painted my nails a simple but different French manicure as you can see. Just fancied doing something other than plain colours.

I love the fact that I’ve got a summer dress on and it’s not even the middle of May yet. Not packed my woolys away yet cos knowing England we will need them again soon.

I’ll leave you with a summery quote to get you in the mood like me.

Happy Sunday

Til next time

Cover me up

0

Don’t you hate it when you wake up and you have dark circles through lack of sleep or that unwanted spot that just lands on your face. I know there are worst things in life, but it’ll make you feel so much more confident if you can conceal them.

So I’ve come up with 4 concealers that are very much raved about and I also have some tips to help

COLLECTION LASTING PERFECTION CONCEALER

At £4.19 this is the cheapest one I’m going to mention. You can find it at Boots and Superdrug It really does help conceal the dark circles and definitely helped cover redness but not my spots. Not to say it won’t help yours. It comes in a range of shades too.

REVOLUTION CONCEAL AND DEFINE CONCEALER

This one is a dupe for another one I’m going to mention that’s a bit pricey, this one is a fraction of the price at £5 from either Superdrug or Beauty Bay. It gives a full coverage which I like. You can get these in two different sizes as well if you tend to use a lot of concealer.

L’ORÉAL INFAILLABLE MORE THAN CONCEALER

This one is new out and I’ve been using it for about a month and I don’t have any intention of switching back. It has concealed my dark circles, my troublesome spots and any redness I get. It is £9.99 but I’d rather spend a tiny bit more to get a good result and fingers crossed it’ll last a few months.

TARTE SHAPE TAPE

At a steep £23. 00 the Tarte Shape Tape concealer does all the revolution concealer does but with a brand which all products come with a hefty price tag. I believe you can only get Tarte from America so people are selling them for £31.00 on Ebay. You’re silly if you wanna spend that and you don’t even know if it’s a knock off.

Those colour correction sets that come with all those different colours in them have uses for different skin complaints so I’ve found this down below that explains which colour helps what.

Also here is the places to apply your concealer to get the best results.

I also put a stripe down my nose only because I find if I don’t my foundation rubs off.

I hope you found this post informative and let me know if you have tried any others I haven’t named and you think they are worth a try.

JANUARY MONTHLY FAVOURITES

0

Even though there is only 31 days of January- this month seems to have gone on and on and on. How we can’t wait for it to end….

but first let’s talk through my favourites.

SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH THE ORIGINAL SERIES

I remember how I raced home from school to make sure I put this on before my brother hogged the remote control  when he got in.

I was pleasantly surprised a few weeks ago to see that E4 was playing reruns of this. So I am reliving my youth of when I wished I could have a talking cat like Salem and another world through our airing cupboard on top of our stairs.

  • Having my Niece over and going through all the nursery rhymes you can think of and watching her get excited when I knew all the words. She’s precious our Daisy
  • Got to speak to my Dad on the phone for 45 mins. This is good because he has Dementia so his attention span is usually poor. I love hearing his voice and he still calls me Hol so there’s still a glimmer of hope.
  • Going to my Cousin 40th Party this weekend just gone. The music was all the oldies and it was a excuse to have a few archers and lemonade. The hangover the next day was minimal so thumbs up.

OLLY MURS – EXCUSES

I have always liked Olly Murs style of singing. All his songs are really catchy. He’ll always get a Darlin‘ in there if you really listen…quite funny actually. It’s good to see him back on our screen in The Voice too.

ALIEN GIFT SET BY MUGLER

Oh my goodness me…after my friend sent me a little sample in a box swap we done I said to my Mum did she wanna chip in and get this gift set with me and it is the most sensual scent my nose have inhaled. Let’s just say I smell bloody lush.

finally I always leave you with a quote so this is my favourite at the mo.


I hope you’ve had some fab moments throughout January. Feel free to share them in the comments below.

Thanks for stopping by

NOVEMBER: MONTHLY FAVOURITES

2

Last month i remember wishing the leaves would change colour and fall off. The trees surrounding our house are completely naked. So my wish was granted. However mother bagged them all up from the garden and it looks like there never was any.

So November has been a funny month, blink and you would have missed it.

First of all my favourite thing this month was having my hair cut and donating 10 inches of it.

Then comes these:

FAVOURITE SONG

I heard it on the radio and good old shazam told me the title and who it was by.

It was Don’t worry baby by The Beach boys – I remember it being on the film never been kissed and loving the song back then.

FAVOURITE PRODUCTS

I have absolutely loved the Vanilla Marshmallow range from The Body Shop. It’s not your typical Christmas scent but I’m pretty sure it’s part of the Christmas ones. I did go a bit mad in the sale but I’ll smell bloody beautiful so it’s all good.

FAVOURITE BLOGGER

One of my followers over on Instagram that I’ve been in touch with from the start of my blogging journey has been an absolute babe especially when i need cheering up.

Shes from South Africa and you will love her too i guarantee it – her name is Victoria otherwise known as toridacosta her blog is Allthingsbelo

FAVOURITE APP

I have had this on my android phone for a few months then i saw someone using it on a YouTube video i was watching and on apple it has so many features that it doesn’t have on android. You can turn videos into something original and really wonderful. Its free aswell its called PocketVideo (all one word). I use it all the time now for all sorts of projects and on Instagram.

FAVOURITE QUOTE

You know me i am all about being confident in your own skin and when i saw this i just had to include it as my favourite for this month

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing what I’ve loved this month. Let me know what’s made your November.

Signature beauty products

1

You know the make up that you wear pretty much every day, the one that feels like your second skin? The ones you buy again and again. Those that if they were to be discontinued you’d have a mini meltdown.

That’s your signature beauty products

I thought I’d empty out my make up bag and tell you about mine.

FOUNDATION

I have been using Max Factor Facefinity it’s a 3 in 1 primer, concealer and foundation all in one – light ivory to be exact cos I’m a pale peach.

CONCEALER

Not found one yet that’s done better (yes I know Tarte do one but not in my price range) than my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. My dark circles and spots are invisible underneath this.

MASCARA

I go between two. One which is the Maybelline Lash Sensational waterproof. I use these on days I know we will have rain and I may be hormonal. The other one is my Givenchy Mini Noir Couture Volume I had from the glamour beauty club. It gives wow volume I love it.

EYELINER

For a few years now this has been in my life and it stands pretty much whatever you throw at it. My Mac Pro Longwear Fluidline Gel Liner. It’s a little more pricier than one you buy from one of the brands in Boots or Superdrug but it lasts forever.

LIPSTICK

It took me forever to try find a lipstick shade that suited me and that stayed on my lips after eating/drinking and even kissing if I’m lucky. It’s only a couple of quid and it’s a Primarni special. It’s in between a brown, pink and a neutral. One I highly recommend buying.

BRONZER

I have to say over the years that Natural Collection was going in Boots nothing came close to giving my face a light bronzing than the pearls. One swirl of your brush in it and it was just enough to do your whole face without looking super caked. Sad that they have discontinued the brand but I thought ahead and got a couple. Benefits Hula bronzer is ok for contouring but I rarely do that cos I don’t have the nack of doing it.

There you have it…My faves.

What would be yours?

Thanks for reading, I’ll be back tomorrow.

So this happened today

2

I have been growing my hair for the last 2 years and got it the longest its been since i was about 12.

I had a throwback photo come up on my facebook memories a couple weeks ago and it was me with super short hair. I saved the pic to my phone and went back to it a few times to admire it. It really did used to suit me. Could i pull it off again?

My hair today went from this length…

Then put in pigtails and snipped off.

A whole ten inches. I have decided to donate it to the little princess trust to help them to make a wig for children with cancer. It’s such a worthy cause.

Here’s my new hair do courtesy of my sister – who also happens to be a hairdresser.

It’s one thing i can add to my random act of kindness list 💕

What’s a random act of kindness you’ve done?

Look into my eyes

9

I’ve used the title of this blog for a few reasons.

One – It’s the lyrics that start off my favourite song. Everything i do by Bryan Adams.

Two – I have two tone eyes. It’s only developed over the last few years. It’s what makes me different.

Three – I’ve done a little simple eye look i wanted to show you.

I used my freebie from the glamour beauty club the Givenchy mini noir couture volume mascara and then my Mac fluidline gel liner.

It separates all the lashes and adds the prefect amount of volume as you can see.

I have always worn black liner on my fluidline. I guess it’s my signature look.

Then i used the Maybelline eye studio diamond glow eyeshadow quad. I picked the pinky lilac shade (Second one in).

I’m not that adventurous with eyeshadow always keep it quite simple. This was £1.99 from fragrance direct so it was an absolute bargain.

I may one day put some YouTube tutorials on and follow them and maybe surprise myself.

GLAMOUR BEAUTY CLUB – BEAUTY PRODUCT REVIEWS

0

About 6 months ago i had no idea about the glamour beauty club. I saw it on one of my blogger friends instagram and thought I’d probably get rejected from applying because i had only 500 followers on there.

Never think that way because i have been sent about 5 or 6 things so far from the glamour beauty club such as

  • Hawaiian aftersun
  • Wilkinsons sword shaver
  • Givenchy mini mascara and tester perfume
  • L’ocitane face oil
  • Maybelline lipstick

As you can see they send high end as well as drug store brands too.

The best thing about it is these things you get sent aren’t even out in the shops or online yet so you are chosen to try and give your opinion on the product.

If you are interested in this then don’t hesitate in being part of the gang.

Heres where to click you will thank me.

Glamour Beauty Club Website

Enjoy your beauty bits and if you reply to the email with your thoughts too it’ll let them know you still want to receive products from them in the future.

Oh yes its Friday night

6

Hey Hey, its Friday.

I actually don’t mind staying in on a Friday night, or a Saturday come to think of it. I think as you get older you go past caring about going out on the razz every weekend.

I’m going to make my Friday night a nostalgic one. Cos i love memories i can look back on. So here’s my plans.

I’ve got 10 things i hate about you, cos who didn’t swoon over Heath singing your too good to be true can’t take my eyes off of you back in the 90s.

Then Billy Elliot, i love the how it’s full of controversy and it tells a wonderful story. Julie Walters is so funny in it too.

Finally Muriels Wedding. It’s such a classic and me and my friend Lou used to do the Waterloo dance in her living room until we had the moves to a T.

I found my diary from 10 years ago and i know this will be a banger to read as i remember the boyfriends and my clubbing days were quite something to write about so i look forward to reading that.

Then I’m gonna put a face mask on too just so i feel a bit more relaxed.

If i can’t sleep i may get started on my scrap book, i have only used 4 pages in it so far but really wanna make it something rather interesting to flip through when it’s finished.

What do you like doing on a Friday night?
