My favourite ways to de-stress!

Image
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you'll know that I've had the week (or fortnight even) from hell after some b*tch reversed into my car and wrote it off - mix this with being the week before payday, barely seeing the fella as he's been working so much and a couple of late shifts at work - it's safe to say that a glass of wine was called upon a couple of times. There's a quote that says "Stress is directly related to how out-of-control we feel" and that's been a huge problem this week - I like being organised, knowing what I'm doing and this week I've not been able to be in control of anything as I had to spend a few days without a car and even after I received a courtesy, I couldn't control how long it took to check it, write it off and I'm still waiting to find out how much money my settlement will be.

Plus despite having left Nottingham over a year ago, I've also felt SUPER home sick the last week or so - particularly Fri…

Autumn Lip-spiration!

Image
I've never been a lipstick person unless I go out at night until I started my new job and now I can't leave the house without a colour on! I just feel that lipstick or a lip product makes the face and finishes off a make up look and I've loved trying out new products and new looks so with my favourite time of year coming up, I'm looking forward to wearing an Autumn lip!
First up is the Milani Lipstick in Cabaret Blend (40) and LA Lip Paint in Daring (may be wrong, can't work out the name!) which I picked up last time I visited Cabella in Nottingham which are perfect either together or separately. The Lip Paint is quite purple but it's great for over a lipstick as it lasts such a long time and feels really moisturising or on it's own to add a bit of colour to a plain outfit.


The second combo I've been loving is the No7 Lip Crayon in Plum underneath the No7 Moisture Drench Lipstick in Berry Shine. The lipliner makes the look a bit darker than the lipstic…

Fitness Update: Personal Training Sessions, Breakfast and Walking Around All Day!

Image
It's been months since I wrote a post about my fitness... partly because my fitness went out the window as you may have guessed after my last post, especially in the run up to my holiday and partly because my new job is limiting how much time I spend in the gym!

However now I have a dress to get into for the Black tie ball I'm organising, I couldn't bare looking in the mirror anymore and after months of debating, I finally got a personal trainer at my gym so I could get myself back into shape and motivated again and even though I'm only about 3 and half weeks in, I already feel a world of difference and know I should've done it months ago when I first thought about it.

I've never in my life had a PT session before but in my gym I'd seen one of the Fitness Advisors, Sasha, had started her own business and had become a personal trainer (if you're in Shropshire, take a look at her website here). Now there was a female Personal Trainer, I messaged her and b…

Review: Seche Vite Top Coat

Image
First blog in bloody weeks - really need to get back into it so chosen my favourite product at the moment to have a little ramble about - apologies that it's another nail product as my last post was a review on nail product but I can't not write about it! :)

2 people recommended the Seche Vite Topcoat (which I'd never heard of before!) as I kept moaning that since having my acrylics taken off my nail polish doesn't stay put longer than I've left the room I put it on in as my nails are such a state! Plus now working as a beauty gal in Boots means that I can't have scrappy looking nails.

I finally caved and paid the £9 price tag (kinda ouch for a topcoat) but I'd not even put it on one whole hand that night and I knew it was the best money I could spend and it's a new beauty-must-have that I'll be repurchasing for life.

I normally don't use a topcoat and if I do it's just a bog-standard Sally Hansen one but it's safe to say that this has c…
