New Year Resolutions!

Hi lovely ladies, hope you have all been enjoying the Xmas break.
I must say sorry for the lack of posts but things will be back to normal after new year. Anyway I've been thinking about 2012 and what it will bring with it.
New years resolutions last year was to learn to drive and have i done it NO (Hangs head in shame)

 This year my resolutions are:
1. Learn to drive. This is a must do.
2. Become more organised. As i am getting busier and busier I'm finding it very stressful to find things when i need them as I'm so unorganised so i will be getting organised by decluttering my clothes, office and kitchen especially.
3. Lose the weight i have put on these past 5 months. I am a bridesmaid in the spring and i need to fit in that dress lol.

So that's my rundown of things i must achieve next year. Of course there are plenty of others id like to do but i think if i keep it short its more obtainable :)

I hope you all have a brilliant new year and thanks so much to everybody who has followed me last year and commenting and chatting. You are all Amazing xxxx

What are your resolutions for 2012?

Crossing Over To The Dark Side!

Well i finally decided to colour my hair back to dark brown. Ive been uming and ahhing as i loved the red but the upkeep was just too much, so i picked up a colour from boots a few weeks ago and last night i popped it on while watching the only way is Essex lol.

I'm thinking of getting some clip in extensions to add a bit of thickness for nights out etc. I'm tempted to get the Halo ones as I've read loads of good reviews so i might save my pennies and get some. Unless you have any other recommendations?

Xmas in our house!

Wow i cant believe Xmas is so close now. I thought I'd share a few pics of my decorations this year.
I have a mix of traditional looking festive things for the kids in one room and in the other i have a more contemporary look.

Gingerbread Man!

This big old snowman is a favourite with kids :)

On the fireplace in the main room i decorated with fairy lights and silvers and pinks

The run up to Xmas has been very hectic here but i have just about finished all the shopping and sent the cards so only the wrapping to be done and then i can relax with a big glass of something fizzy :)
Are you all ready for the big day?

Ladies Night!

Tonight i am having the girls round for a bit of a get together and to show them some of my new products. I cant wait to let my hair down after the last few weeks which have been so so busy.

 I've made a few Chocolate cupcakes and frosted the wine glasses.

But better than edible Cupcakes are my Tub Treats Bath Bombs

My latest Lotion Bars Black Raspberry and Vanilla

Little Stocking Fillers Strawberry Cheesecake Fizzy Bath Melts

Strawberry Cheesecake Sugar Scrub Cubes

This one is a little treat just for me 
I'm off to use it now in the bath for a bit of pampering :)

I've also made some new lip butters flavoured in Amaretto and Maple which smell yummy. 
Thanks for reading and hope you all have a lovely weekend xxx

Illamasqua Event in Leeds

Last week i had the pleasure of being invited to the new store in Leeds to celebrate the opening and thought I'd share a few photos with you all.

The store itself is stunning. It is located in a prestige arcade surrounded by other luxury shops and boutiques.

Every inch of the shop was full of bold images which represents the Illamasqua brand to a Tee.

It was lovely to catch up with other bloggers and meet the friendly staff who all looked amazing.

Lots of us had makeovers and as the shop was full of products it was an ideal opportunity to swatch away and try out lots of new shades.

I have fallen in love with these lashes, some of the girls were wearing them on the night and they looked amazingly glam

It's rare that i manage to get to any of the events so i really enjoyed myself and now have a wish list as long as my arm :)

Light up your Lips!

First of all i want to say sorry for the lack of posting. Things have been seriously busy here and so I've just not had a moment.
Hope everyone is getting in the festive spirit. For me Xmas is a great time to use up some of my shimmery products that have been hiding in the back of my cupboards and after a little dig around i found these gorgeous lip glosses from GOSH.

These stunning glosses are perfect for the party season with the added little mirror on the side and the applicator lights up for on the go glamour. 


Shades 01 & 03

Shades 04 & 08

Shade 05

Its really hard to capture the beauty of these dazzling glosses on camera they are really eye catching

08 directly on the lips

For me the true beauty of these glosses come to life when added under a lipstick

01 on top of  Mac Creme Cup

04 on top of Revlon  Pink Pout

05 on top of Estee Lauder Coral

These glosses are available from Superdrug RRP £7.99 and currently 342 so a bargain. What will you be wearing on your lips for the party season?
