Back to blogging?

Hello lovelies!

Long time no see, I know! I think it has been way over 2 years since I last did a blog post which to me is SHOCKING. When I first created my (very basic) blog it filled me with a sense of pride and achievement knowing I was writing about the little things that I love the most and being able to share them with you wonderful people. So what happened? I'm not going to lie, I simply lost all motivation to write and resorted to just enjoying other people's blogs instead which I have done ever since.
With that being said, I really want to try and change my mind set on blogging, putting every effort into getting back on it!
Soo..I would love to hear from any of you lovely people perhaps the kind of posts you would like to see from me just as a bit of inspo!

Bye for now!  (Promise I won't neglect my little space for as long as I have!)

Lots of love,

Kelly x

No7 money off vouchers



Whenever I find a discount code online or given a money off voucher to do with anything fashion or beauty related, I always feel as though I have to spend it. In my opinion, they are a great way to buy things you wouldn't normally be able to afford.

When I was given a fair few money off vouchers from boots this month after some little spurges (oops!) I managed to restrain myself from buying things that I didn't really need.
The vouchers consist of £3 off No 7 make up and £5 off No 7 skincare. I did manage to bag myself 2 packs of the forever raved about make up wipes and an eye make up remover as these were necessities for me.  The wipes are very wet and have a neutral fragrance to them, making it easy to take off any excess make up with them.  I believe that the eye make up remover is a fairly new addition to No 7 and so far, I am quite enjoying using it, as it seems to take off the majority of my eye make up, even stubborn mascara!

What wonderful No 7 beauty buys have you managed to pick up with these vouchers that are floating around?

Achieving that holiday body.

Before i even get on to this topic, I just want to apologise for my lack of posts recently. No excuses, just the fact that I have been enjoying reading blogs more than adding to my own.  I have came across some amazing & beautiful beauty bloggers lately, so thank you to all those who have made my daily blog post reading so very interesting. :)

So..I am going on holiday in almost a months time and i'm absolutely SO EXCITED, i can't contain it.
One of my favourite things to do prior to a holiday is going shopping, for cute pretty bikinis in particular.
I have bought some stunning bikinis to wear this time..but the question is..will my body look nice in them?

..I know its a question that goes through alot of girls minds, not surprisingly due to the perfect body image that is expected of us in society.   I don't want a perfect body as i believe there is no such thing, every individual person suits a different body shape. One thing I was hoping to achieve beforehand, is to get more toned. I'm no way near skinny, nor fat. I have a naturally slim figure, but due to my rather unhealthy diet & lack of exercise (and also from naturally growing up) over recent years, I think it has started to show its effects on my body. My stomach and thighs could do with being alot more trimmed.

So what have i done to kickstart my healthy holiday body?  I have been quite good in that I added more healthy alternatives into my diet such as fruit & nuts and have recently tried out the Hannah Waterman workout dvd.  I do quite like this workout, but I think i'm much more suited to doing something more fun such as dancing, as I just think I'd stick to it more & feel as though it would do more for me.  That is why I have just bought the My fitness coach Dance Workout for the Wii. 

Hopefully, if i stick to regular exercising & eating well within the next month then I should feel alot more confident & good to go.

I would love to hear what you girls do to help stay in shape.  Have you tried any of the workout dvd's/ wii games..& did they help?!

Lots of love,

A rather big haul! Primark,Boots,New Look & Select.

As i have been good recently by saving some of my pennies, I thought i would treat myself to a bit of a shopping spree.  I am absolutely loving alot of the primark clothing that is out this season, it's a shame that the prices are going up too!  I have tried to be strict with myself over the past few months by only buying things that i know i'm gonna get good use out of. Think i've done a pretty good job so far :)

Here is what i picked up...




 

PRIMARK:
Coral coloured clutch - £3 reduced from £6. For me, this will be perfect for taking on nights out as the colour suits alot of things i tend to wear. (I love how the gold clasp gives it a slight vintage look also!)
Nautical striped pencil skirt - £7. I have been wanting one of these for a while now & was amazed at the price of this one. I tried it on with a denim jacket and i love it :)
Black & white lace peter pan collared top - £6.00.



NEW LOOK:
Tribal print chunky knit jumper.   I was AMAZED when i found this!
It is very similar to the one in Mango which retails at ALOT more than this!
This was only £7 in the sale!! A.m.a.z.i.n.g.



BOOTS:
Boots were doing the 3 for 2 mix & match offer, so obviously I had no choice but to take up this oppurtunity :)
The first thing i picked up was some hair dye. My hair is naturally dark brown, usually if i dye it, i normally go even darker because I like the glossiness that it gives my hair.  As it is getting warmer, i thought i'd treat my hair to something different. So i got the loreal casting creme gloss in the shade mahogany.
My hair has not been in the best of condition lately, so I resorted in buying 3 aussie products in the hope that they will reawaken my dull, dry hair.  I got the luscious long shampoo,  the 3 minute miracle colour deep treatment & the miracle hair insurance leave in conditioner.
Next, i got a tanning mitt from the st tropez range.  Was slightly disappointed that it isn't what i thought it was. I was expecting it to be a mitt that I could apply my fake tan with, but its actually something that removes excess tan. Never mind!
Then..i had a £5 off No7 voucher.  I alwaays buy something from this range whenever i have a voucher, I feel that it's a waste if i don't.  I have heard good things about the No7 eyelash curlers, so i decided to pick them up.  With the voucher, they only came up to about £2 something, so complete bargain!

Lastly I popped into select....

From there, I picked up these very cute black shoes with little tassles on them for a bargainous £5! They were originally £16 reduced to £8..couldnt believe that they were even cheaper when i got to the till.   I have been in need of some new shoes for work. As i am on my feet pretty much all day, I needed a pair that would provide lots of comfort and with good durability too.  These seemed to do nicely :)

I hope you like what i got :)  If you would like an indepth review on any of these, or if you have any requests then please leave me a little comment down below :)

Lots of love,

My adorable new shoes :)

Hello all!

As it was such a beautiful day on sunday, me & my other half decided to go on a nice walk around some gorgeous gardens & have a picnic. We had to walk through the town centre to get to the gardens, so on the way I decided to have a cheeky little look in primark. (My boyfriend HATES going shopping with me.)

I rushed straight upstairs to the shoe department as i knew exactly what i was looking for....these cuuuuute shoes. I think they are called boat shoes, but i can't clarify that.  I have seen a few beauty gurus have these shoes..i knew that i just HAD to have a pair.  Come on, could you resist these?

I absolutely love the colour combo on these and the little detailing is so nice :)
I always hear of the amazing bargains people get from primark, but i'm not always lucky enough to find much that I like. However, this time I saw so many things that I wanted to get. Ranging from pretty vintage style blouses to chinos.  I shall be going back to primark in a few weekends time to go on a proper little shop, so I  shall be preparing my wardrobe for all my new goodies by throwing out items that i do not want anymore.
Watch this space..there will no doubt be a big haul soon ;)

P.S..I know it was cheeky of me to have neglected my blog for so long. But my lame excuse is that I have been busy with work/travelling etc. :)

Have you managed to find any great items in Primark lately?

Lots of love,

Product rave: Natural Collection tinted moisturiser.

Hello all :)

I'm gonna get straight to the point.  Natural collection's tinted moisturiser is absolutely amazing.  A few weeks ago i had rediscovered this product. I decided to use it more often because my skin has been suffering quite severely with dry skin & patches of acne, so something more lightweight on my face like this product was defintaly what was needed, rather than my usual rather heavy foundations. 
I love the fact that i don't have to wear a moisturiser underneath when using this (i can be quite lazy like that) and the product glides on my face so smoothly giving a nice medium coverage (pretty much doing the job of a foundation but with the bonus of being more breathable!).  I am also surprised about how long it stays on my face. I can go a whole days work and my skin will still be glowing from it.
I'm not sure as to whether this product is gonna be loved by everyone. Some may not like the consistency (can be a little runny) and the shade ranges are not  brilliant. 
If your looking to achieve a more natural lightweight touch to your skin, I would definatly say give this a whirl! :)

You can buy this product at your nearest boots store or online at http://www.boots.com/ for just £1.99! (Amazing right!)

Just to be clear - all opinions are that of my own & i am not paid by companies to review products.

Has anyone else used this wonder before? Or can recommend other tinted moisturisers i can try? I'm looking to find an everyday slightly darker one that i can wear in the warmer months!

Lots of love,

Gladiator sandals for a FIVER!

I know that some of you may think - why are you buying sandals at this time of year in the UK?! You must think i'm a little bit crazy. Well, on saturday whilst browsing in my local New Look store, i spotted these gorgeous pair of gold gladiator sandals that had been reduced to just FIVE POUNDS. I was amazed to find that they had my size and they had a few pairs left. I absolutely love wearing gladiator sandals, my pair from last year had to be thrown away as they had pretty much had it because i wore them so much. I think that they are an essential staple in the warmer months, I personally like to wear them with long flowy dresses or a nice pair of skinny jeans.  For these reasons..i had to pick this pair up, i know that i will not find a pair anywhere else that is as cheap as these!

Roll on summer when these cute un's can be on my feet in the sunshine :)


Other purchases i picked up this weekend were some purple storage boxes from pound stretchers as i needed something to store all my jewellery neatly.
Lately, I have been breaking out into spots, so decided to buy some new products to add to my skin care regime. I got the clean & clear morning energy daily facial wash to use in the mornings, as it was half price and also Oxy's on the spot gel to use in the evenings after cleansing my skin.
If either products turn out to be anything amazing then i will most probably do a review on them :)

Hope you have all had a good weekend!

Lots of love,
