A NEW SERIES FEATURING YOU

I have been blogging a little over a year now. I absolutely love documenting about the things I like and things that go on in my life. I want to add something different.

I want to include some of the fabulous bloggers of this world. The ones who I love to see online and enjoy every post they write and also newbies that I’ve only just discovered. 

I will either do a Q and A with a different blogger every week or just write a little piece about them. We shall see how it goes.

So watch this space and I hope to bring you more people to follow on their journeys.

Alternatively leave your blog link down below and I’ll be in touch.

Hair look of the day

Just because the summer is over doesn’t mean I can’t have beachy waves in my hair.

Woke up feeling like I needed a bit of volume in my hair so here’s the simple thing I did

With the help of my Babylis cordless tongs and the ever so faithful Elnett hairspray and a little concentration.

I was able to get some pretty waves going on. Both these were purchased at Boots I think my tongs were £19.99 and the hairspray a little over a fiver. 

Not much of a change just a ringlet here and there and a quick run through my hair with my fingers to so it didn’t look too fancy.

They lasted all day which  impressed me.

So there you go…. a short but sweet post I wrote when I just couldn’t sleep.

Til next time…

It has been a horrendous month if i am honest with you. I haven’t been able to properly concentrate i was by my poorly uncles bedside until he sadly passed away and then been helping my mum with arrangements as well as having paralysed legs it’s been a hard one.

PERSONAL


This gorgeous little peach…my niece Daisy came over to visit me and Mum and we were both shocked when she got down off my brothers lap and ran across the room. My eyes filled with tears of Joy. I got her to say Hol Hol too which made me smile. Being an auntie is one of the best feelings in the world. You feel so loved. I became one at 12 and they’ve just kept coming since.

An ideal girly day

So the morning starts with breakfast in bed on a lap tray if lucky bought in by your significant other before he dashes off to work

Once you’ve enjoyed your delicious breakfast you get your ass into the bathroom to start getting ready for the day. Starting with looking after your pearly whites.

Once you jump in the shower your phone rings, you see it’s your best mate so you can’t just leave it so you answer it trying to keep your modesty…even though nobody else is in the house. She wants to meet you so you hop on out.

A text comes through… ‘Are you ready?’

You quickly grab your phone and shoot a snapchat back at her saying won’t take too much longer.

While you are getting ready you can’t help but try that hair do you saw on Facebook or was it YouTube?

No matter how old you are some things never change and you act just as silly as you did when you were 12 years old.

After a fun-filled afternoon, a spot of shopping and a bite to eat you head on home.

Back home coffee in hand and feet up. Absolute bliss.

Autumn Essentials 

Since my birthday is in October it’s always been my favourite season and I love how you can simply slide from summer to the central heating and still feel warm…

The leaves haven’t quite changed colours yet. When one drops down on my head I will finally say autumn is here.

Here are a few essential things that I like to have…I missed out my hot water bottle but that one is with me all year round. Yes I’m slightly odd but hey I don’t mind being an oddington one bit 🙂

  • Hot Choc – With all the decorations if you feel like going a bit fancy
  • A Snuggly Blanket – Literally stuck to you until next summer
  • The Fireplace – Whether it’s a open fire or central heating just the nice feeling of not being cold.
  • A spiced candle – Those scents that bring the nostalgia of autumn
  • Nights in front of the box – All the films and new series to enjoy
  • A Pumpkin – Because of hallowe’en of course. You’re never too old.
  • A woolly jumper – The key thing you should have in your wardrobe to get you through the colder months.
  • Hat, scarf and gloves – So you can still enjoy being outside but your keeping well wrapped up.
  • Wellingtons Boots – To jump in the mound of colourful leaves and big puddles.

What reminds you of Autumn?

See you next time…

MY EVERYDAY MAKE UP LOOK

Since I was old enough to wear it, I have always been a lover of makeup. 

I’m not that adventurous, purely because I don’t want to end up looking like a clown or someone with black eyes instead of smokey ones. So I have decided to share with you my everyday look and what products I use.

Firstly I prep my face with a moisturiser to make sure my dry areas are taken care of and is ready for the foundation  AKA ‘my mask ‘.

I apply my Collection Lasting Perfection in the shade fair under my eyes in an upside down triangle style, down my nose in the shape of something rude. Think you know what but it I find doing this covers my nose nicely. Then lastly to any blemishes and then blend.

img_0968I use three drops of Revlon Colour Stay Foundation in the shade fair (Because I am) and one drop of True Match in the shade Rose Ivory to match my skin tone. I sometimes use a brush or sometimes my fingers it just depends on whether I’m in a hurry or not.

Next, I apply two coats of L’Oréal Baby Roll Mascara to my top lashes. I don’t do it to the bottom as I think they are long enough already. I love this one it really volumises and lengthens them.

I grab an eyeliner brush and my MAC Fluidline Eyeliner and just apply it on my liquid line. I leave the upper liner for evening looks.

img_0962To add a bit of colour to little pale me I put some of my NYX Mosaic Blush on the apples of my cheeks. It’s quite subtle which I like about this product.

I apply a tiny bit of my Benefit High Beam Highlighter just above my cheeks and on my Cupid’s bow just to accentuate them.

Lastly, I apply some Nivea Fruity Shine  Watermelon Lip Balm to just give my lips a hint of colour.

There you go…Here is the finished look with some added curls for good measure.

Thanks for reading and I’ll see you in my next post.
