Be Unique On Hallows'eve...

Image
With Halloween fast approaching many of us out there are searching for the perfect statement costume, to get everyone's head turning. From ghosts to ghouls, Marylin to minions there is more than likely a costume to fit your Halloween needs. As I am from the UK, we have a tendency to stick with the scarier side of Halloween with ghosts, witches and goblins but as it's brought to my attention in countries such as America costumes can range from a a ghost, to a fairy-godmother or even Spiderman, as long as your dressed up anything goes. So searching through the internet I have found my top three unique costumes that's may have heads turning;
1. Despicable Me 'Minion'  With despicable me, lighten up the big screen for a second time this year, Minion accessories have become common, with their cute faces adorning everything from pencils to bed sheets. So why not embrace the trend and go as minion? It's not a common costume and you're likely to stand out from a crowd…

But What If It Goes Wrong?

Image
A slightly different post for my blog today, but I didn't post for a while last week and that's because it all went a little wrong....
In life we are constantly reminded to remain positive, be happy and look on the bright side of life, but what happens when you're pushed over the edge, and you just can't? Are you made to feel like a failure because you can't cope or are you just putting to much pressure on yourself?  The latter is more likely to be the case, in many situations.       We all go through periods of time, when life just isn't working in our favour, regardless if it's friends, family an embarrassing situation or anything that generally makes you feel like crap and sometimes you may find it so hard to cope.        On the whole there is no way in which I can make each and every person feel better with advice, as everyones mind set is different and different things make you feel better, but what I can tell you that you can try find what will cheer you…

Healthier Lifestyle Changing Me...!

Image
Being skinny is not everything however being healthy is. Turning eighteen this year made me stop and think. Do I really still want to have same eating habits as the younger version of myself, who binges on chocolate and sweets and has zero self control. Nope, I don't.   I know personally in my younger teen years I was far from healthy and I lived with a body that I was never happy with and wrestled with diets throughout the years but why diet when you can change your lifestyle and be healthy?     I'm definitely not saying I will never eat a chocolate bar again, or that you'll never catch me in McDonalds munching on a burger because I still want indulge and have fun in my life. All I'm saying is, instead of eating a McDonalds then later having a chocolate bar and then for dinner having something fatty, I will pace myself with my indulgences and learn to balance the good with bad alongside self control and fun.  Well that's my first healthy lifestyle post, and I hope yo…

Bath Bliss, Bubbles and Beyond!

Image
Serenity bliss at the end of the day, is what many crave but few get to enjoy. With busy schedules, work and responsibilities, getting those precious few minutes to relax and enjoy becomes a task in its self.   Personally my favourite stress relievers and relaxing paradise products can be found at Lush. From fifteen minutes to an hour when I get the chance to spoil myself with a relaxing bath and even a glass of wine, I do! And I've wrote this post to share with you my top three lush must haves for the perfect luxurious bath. 
The comforter bubble bar£4.50
This is my favourite by far, the bar can be broken up into several pieces and have you relaxing in up to four different baths. It dissolves in water creating a mountain a bubbles while tinting your water a light pink,helping your stresses disappear into the abyss and serenity to melt over you. 

Think Pink Bath Bomb£2.50

Coming in a close second has to be this bath bomb! It's pink flowered exterior is inviting and girly and imme…

NEWS FLASH: London Fashionista!

Image
Naive and a little simple minded, are the words I would use to describe myself. Heading into London for the weekend for only the third time in my life, I was confused about the fashion. My head  believed everyone in London would dress like super model - a size 6, dripping in designer brands and the latest fashion trends but BOOM reality hit me square in jaw, and really showed me what Londons street style was all about.        Converse to stilettos  skinnies to maxi dresses in London I saw it all. To answer my previous question was everyone a size 6 super model? Not a chance everyone and I mean everyone had their unique style and rocked it. Different shapes, sizes, lengths and colours filled the tube with a collage of fashion favourites and who am I to judge they all looked amazing. Yes i'm aware of fashion faux pas but with so many different styles from casual to dressy, bohemian to Gothic everyone had there own little edge.       So if any of you are lucky enough to go to london as …

Make-up Madness: The Foundation Brush!

Image
Stippling vs flat vs sponge vs Fingers  Whether you use foundation everyday, or just every now and then, every one applies it for the same purpose, to try look as flawless as possible. But how do we do this? And what do you use to apply it,? Fingers a sponge or is it a war between the stippling and flat brush? Who knows... But i'm here to help you decide!  Truthfully I feel every foundation is unique with several different types from liquid to powder and everything in between how can one tool suit all their purposes? It cant, and I honestly cannot give you a direct answer, as it changes depending on your chosen type however I can advise you of what goes best where, based on my research and experience.  The sponge Starting with the trusty sponge. Typically I would recommend using a foundation brush of any type  instead of a sponge. Sponges are made to absorb therefore they're going use your foundation up a lot faster than a brush causing you too start spending more pennies! However…
