The Healthy But Tasty Lunch

Oh boy do I love food. Since getting into a healthy lifestyle at the beginning of the year I've been really getting into healthy but still delicious dishes and a weakness for anything smothered in chocolate or icing at our local cake shop. I've never been great at cooking but when i start to get a passion for something that passion begins to develop into a bobbie and i can't help but look for the next delicious recipe on Madeline Shaw, Vivianna Does Makeup and PopSugar blogs.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Pallet

You all know I'm a massive fan of the glowy skin look and since the ambient lighting powders have been around I've wanted to snap one of these up to give me glowing skin even Blake Lively would be jealous of! But I just couldn't justify the price.. Until now!

Oh and did I forget to mention my favourite shades of nail varnish? Here I have my favourite colours to wear during the A/W months including a dupe! You lucky ducks!

Bye Bye Hormonal Skin!

I've wanted to talk about these two products for a while but wanted to make sure I was 100% in love with them. Now I'm sure and it is definitely love.

Haircare 101

Surprisingly, what I use on my mane is what I usually get asked about. After putting my hair through a lot of stress during my teens I've been told I'm incredibly lucky to have such lovely hair and I think I've finally got my hair in the best condition I've ever had. -With many thanks to my wonderful hairdresser, Charlotte.

The Good Breakfast

Like a lot of people I love a cooked breakfast in the morning but I'm not a fan of that too full sick feeling so on days where I've got a lot planned and want to keep my energy up I head straight for the eggs and here's my little recipe for a quick and easy to make delicious and nutritious breakfast!

You will need:
  • Two eggs
  • 1/4 cup of milk or cream
  • A lemon
  • Pepper 
  • Asparagus
  • Avocado
  • Fresh chives
  • Spring Onions

Time for a switch up.

Despite me having only ever talked about beauty on this blog it was never my full intention to make it just all about beauty. I'm actually massively into health and wellbeing so I am also going to be also posting a few things lifestyle on here like food, recipes, fitness and whatever else really comes to mind! Perhaps even the odd dog walk!

Like I said, I am really into a healthy lifestyle, I find that not only does it effect your body, but it also effects the way we think and act with everyday situations. 
I have always struggled with my sleeping I used to toss and turn all night but as soon as I started incorporating more exercise into my regime around a year ago I found that I slept a whole lot better. The same goes for what foods I put into my body. Now don't get me wrong, I would never turn down a big slice of chocolate cake, I don't 'calorie watch' but I do know that when I eat more processed and high in sugar foods all day everyday I get very sluggish and I don't find I want to hit the gym at all. 

So, that was just a little intro into what I'm going to also be posting on here and I hope you all enjoy reading about it. There's is still going to be a lot of beauty posts on here so don't worry!


See you later,

The Tanning Topic

Finally some nice weather! Time to get my legs out.. oh wait..

Sometimes there just are not enough hours in a working girls day to tan! And despite my half hour lunch breaks and weekends off I've only got a slight bit of a tan so armed with a Primark £1 mit (bargain)  I went out to pick up some false tans.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

Ok so I'm a tad late on the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer band wagon. But after resisting for so long I have given into it. Every blogger I know raves about this product over and over whether it's on their blog, word of mouth or their youtube channel.

Fake It 'Till You Make It

As of recent, my sleeping pattern seriously sucks! So I'm looking a bit worse for wear for the early gets ups for work and am preferring the few extra minutes in bed rather than spending them putting my face on. Enter 'Fake It 'Till You Make It' post. This is basically all I've been doing to my face all week to keep myself looking more bright eyed and bushy tailed as apposed to a character from The Walking Dead movie.

And right now, I feel like I've got some pretty nifty ones to tell you about so let's get started!

Saving My Skin

The past two months my skin has really freaked out and I'm not sure what's caused it, hormones? the weather? the products I've been using? Have i not been exercising enough lately? But there have been four products I that have completely saved my skin over this period so I really wanted to give them some serious praise.

My Morning Skincare Routine

Now 5 or 6 products may look daunting in the morning, especially if you know you're going to have to do your makeup as well. But, if you think about it, in order to have good makeup you need a good base to put it on. So here I am about to share with you the products I love to use in the morning to help me get the best out of my makeup or just to show of good healthy looking skin.

A tip on how to get fresh radiant base makeup

I think it's safe to say I'm a natural dewy base lover. I am a fan of the Clarins Hydraquench Tinted Moisturiser, REN Satin Perfection BB CreamDr Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm and my all time favourite is the Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturiser. So as I'm getting ready for a night out I thought I would share my secret on how to get the best radiant glowy looking base makeup.

Therapie | Discovery Kit Review

So this little beauty came through my letter box the other day after I won it off Coquet Noelle's birthday giveaway on her fantastic beauty blog. I was so chuffed when she said I'd won! First because I have wanted to try out the Himalayan Detox Bath Salts for absolutely ages but was a bit worried it might just be another gimmick product and secondly because I've never won anything in my life!

Valentines Day Makeup 3

Now, I know I said my last Valentines Day look was my favourite but today I've had a good makeup day and this definitely is my favourite look out of all three so far. I've used liquid liner, which is something I hardly ever use because i'm incredibly cack handed at it and honestly for the first time ever its almost identical on both sides. Finally i've made it! *claps hands*

Will a fellow Bioderma lover please stand up..

Just a quick one!
This weekend when I purchased a couple of bottles of my favourite makeup remover including two little ones for my gym bag I was told by the lady at The Garden Pharmacy+Perfumery that their shop is closing down. Now I don't know about you but this is the only shop that I know which sells bioderma in store, they do have an online shop but I'm not too sure if this is going to shut off soon too. However it is supposed to be sold in all 'leading pharmacies'  but I really haven't seen it sold anywhere else. Am I not looking hard enough?!

NARS Laguna

I'm so fed up of this horrible weather that I'm already pretending its summer. So if any of you are feeling the same, perhaps your feeling putting on some bronzer too, to give you a "I've been on holiday and you haven't" glow (I have not *cries*). 
The other day I dropped my already pan hit, all time favourite bronzer ever, NARS Laguna, during a top up in the toilets at work and when I say I very nearly cried I mean it because this is one of my favourite products in my makeup bag. But then again, that only gave me an excuse to buy a new one and who doesn't love new makeup aye?

Valentines Makeup Look 2

The more photos I am taking the more I'm realising perhaps I should invest in a proper camera if I'm in the this for the long run. IPhone quality is a lot poorer than I originally thought. Whoever else is in favour please say "I" …  I.

My Evening Skincare Routine

Yes, it's skincare, the one thing that to a lot of people is the bane of their day, God knows it used to be mine! But since my skins been behaving it's self the past 2 years, I've been looking after it the best I can and it's really benefitted from a good solid routine thanks the Queen of Skincare Caroline Hirons and her incredible blog. 
My evening skincare routine is one of the things I really look forward to at the end of a long day in the office. The air-conditioning make's my skin feel super tight and no facial spritz can save me after 6 hours. I just want to get home and take all my makeup off with a couple of cotton pads and trusty bioderma

Revlon Lips

On Thursday 23rd January I shot straight to boots after work to check out the new Revlon Colorburst lip crayons and ended up though roughly disappointed. However NOT because I didn't like the new products but within a few hours of them being in stores all but one of the colours I had set my sights on had already gone out of stock!

REN Invisible Pores Detox Mask

I have been a devoted REN fan for well over a year now. I first started with their ClearCalm Clarifying Clay Cleanser which was spot on for my skin type which is fortunately clear until that one week a month where i have a breakout. So when I read that one of my favourite beauty bloggers Amelia Liana going on about this i just had to try it out!
