Weightloss your way

New year make-up

Hi everyone,

Here is the makeup i'll be wearing for new year!! I hope you all have a safe new year with loved ones and this look will maybe give you some inspiration for your NYE make-up :) 

For this look I used a pink shimmer as my base (this had a gold undertone) with deep plum in the outer corner. I used a gel liner to really exenterate the eyes before lining the eyes with a royal blue shadow.

I really like how the eyes turned out and thought they would go perfectly with a pale pink blush and nude lip.

What are your plans for celebrating the New Year? I’m actually having a cosy one this year but it’s still an excuse to jazz up you makes up right? :)

I’ll see you tomorrow for my New Year, New Me post! Ha jokes, I do however have a lovely little idea to share with you all.



Christmas Day makeup

With all the excitement of opening presents and spending time with love ones, I'll be honest, how I look isn't something I worry about. I don't tend to get out of my pj's until at least 11 in the morning but when I do I like to put on my Christmas outfit and do my hair and make-up ready for dinner.

I'm not one to fuss to much, I'd rather use the time eating mince pies and pigs in blankets, but I've put together a festive look for you which can be done in 10 minutes. I hope you like it. 

For the eyes I used sidecar from the naked pallet and blended this over my crease using a MAC 217 brush, then I used a smaller brush to sweep this under the lower lash line. Next I used sin and just dabbed this onto the inner corner and blended it through to the middle.  

To finish off the look I used Maybelline colossal mascara and Rimmel lipstick in 880 rose passion before applying Avon revitalized blush.

This really is a perfect look that's so quick and easy for Christmas Day!

Merry Christmas to all and to all and goodnight :) 



Beauty hamper christmas gift

Today I bring to you a gift idea for those difficult women in your life. You know the ones; either they already have everything, give you no idea of what they want or maybe the're just as much of a beauty geek as you :) either way, this is the perfect gift idea for all of the above or anyone who your struggling for ideas with.
I'm not a fan of giving vouchers even though I love receiving them. I’m a sentimental person, I love making an effort and making someone feel really special. This was actually for a friend’s birthday, but I think this would be perfect for a Christmas gift with a change to the colour theme.

I decided to put together the ultimate pamper kit for her to indulge in, she had never experimented with skincare and made do with the products she picked up at the supermarket, so I wanted to put together the ultimate pamper hamper. 

I included in the hamper:

Perfect pedicure
Toe Separators
Pumice Stone
Nail clippers
Nail File

Nivea Skincare
Face wipes
Make-up Remover
Facial wash gel
2 in 1 cleanser & Toner
Exfoliating Scrub
Day Cream

Bath Time  
Body scrub
Creamy shower wash
Shower/bath gel
Exfoliating gloves

So lets get into making this into a lovely gift :) I started off with this little wicker basket from Tesco, I thought this was perfect as my friend could use this to store all the products in her bathroom.

Next I packed it with some tissue paper to create some height for me to display the products

I placed the products into the basket adding more tissue paper as and when needed to give some products a little more height.

When I was happy with my little display I then wrapped this in tissue paper.

Using pink patterned cellophane I measured enough to go around the basket and then doubled it, as you can see In the picture below I then bunched this together.

Using ribbon I tied above the basket and then folded and sellotaped the outside edges. If you have excess ribbon hanging, rather than cutting off, score the ribbon to create a curl.

I then added a bow, which I learnt from my mom (shes a florist)

I hope you enjoyed this quick post, I just wanted to share with you as it’s a great idea when your stuck of what to get and you can throw this together which lots of little things that are a little more personal to someone. 

This will be my last post before Christmas, so I wish you all a very merry Christmas :) 

Until next time...

Tantastic Tartan

Oh hi... long-time no see.

I know I've been THE worst blogger the past few weeks. Unfortunately I've had a really bad back and was advised by my physio to give it a rest for a bit (sitting at a computer all day and then spending the rest of your life leaning over a laptop apparently isn’t great on the old back), but I’ve had enough now, I’ve got too many pictures that have accumulated in my laptop absence, so here I am raring to go :) I hope you’ll forgive me! I promise not to be gone this long again *slaps wrist* anyway enough about me! How are you all?? 

Today I thought I’d ease you back in with an outfit post. This one was inspired by Made in Chelsea star Louise. She wore a similar outfit in a recent episode. I took to twitter and found that Glomourous.com had this one! I instantly fell in love; I really like the cute feel to this playsuit. I teamed it with some black tight and then tan show boots and belt 

Top - F&F

Pinafore Playsuit - Glamourous

Belt - New Look 

Tights - Primark (super cosy)

Boots - New Look (last season)

Are you a fan of Made in Chelsea? I'm obsessed!!

Ciao for now loves
