I love Made in Chelsea and  it will be back on our screens before we know it! YEY!

I especially love Rosie Fortescue and Millie Mackintosh and a little riffle through their wardrobes would be treat! Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen 😦 dooouche! So instead, I thought I’d pull a few ideas together to help achieve that MIC look for the everyday lovely lady.

The Start of Something New

20130905-011757 PM.jpg

So it’s that time of year again. People may dread the academic year starting but for some, it maybe the start of all things brand new. Whether it be starting school, university or a new job, this time of year makes for new beginnings for lots of people out there.

I’m a firm believer in hard work and grabbing new opportunities by the horns. You don’t know what doors it may open. Speaking from experience, I have started something scarily new at least once a year since I left university at 18 and now I’m 24….Whether it was moving homes, living with stranger (some very weird), moving cities, starting a career, moving jobs, starting a blog, travelling…all at times very stressful newbies…

But hey! Worry not…

If your about to start something new, even if its small, yes, it maybe nerve wracking and you may feel a little lonesome, but tell yourself, your experiencing something brand new; meeting people and doing something that’s going, I promise, to be worth it.

Yep, it might be super ARGHH! Or not work out in the end, but at least you’ve tried and as cliche as it sounds its an experience.

So lovelies if your starting uni and moving away from home, or your about to start a new job or an epic year out… Don’t be second guessing yourself….

In the words of High School Musical, cringe, ‘Its that start of something new…’

And I’d probably like to put some inspirational quote in here…the best I can come up with is…

YEY and Good Luck x x x 😉

Then its from Milan to Nice, where we’ll stop off in a few places, Cannes, Monte Carlo, St Tropez… then, hopefully full of energy still, we’re flying to Barcelonooonaas to finish our travels.

So at the minute I’m dithering about, what to take, what to wear, how to pack it!! arrgh! Yet, really excited.

Hey there!

For some stupid reason my blog post decided to delete itself!! bluuergh, so now I’m here typing away again…

Sooo I pulled myself together to show you some of the new things I’ve been using/ buying this month!

The first piccie are some sandal from Primark that I picked up… I saw these on a haul video on YouTube by ThePersianBabe. She’s one I love to watch and she talks about things without being pretentious, or plugging products that you can’t afford. They’re really comfy and I’m planning in wearing to add a little bit of edge to summery outfits. They look good quality and more Topshop the Primark, so I’m really impressed! And then I got some 3 quid beauties! There jellie sandal and I’ve had a pair before and after about 5 years they snapped… SOB! So theses are taking there place YEY!

Then I headed over to Boots and bought a few essential top ups like Tresemme Freeze hold and Batiste dry shampoo. Both of these products I keep stocked up on and I haven’t found any better replacements so thank you Tresemme adn Batiste. Pluuuus, they were on offer; buy one, get on half price… I also took advantage of this by buying the much raved about MaxFactor Miracle touch cream blush and Maybelline The Falsies. I’ve tried the blusher and jeeebers… its amaze! You look fresh and it give you that healthy glow. I bought it in soft pink. Also, in this pic is a room fragrance diffuser, I picked this up in Primark for £3.00 and I love it! I bought the coconut milk and mango, ohhhh my living room smells like holidays and its not too strong or faint, so for 3 quid I’m very impressed and will be purchasing more, yes sir!

Then I decided to try the Michael Todds Detoxifying Charcoal facial mask. I bought this after my favorite vlogger, Tanya Burr kept raving about it. I was skeptical at first, as you can’t buy it in the UK and therefore I had to buy it online from the US. Buuuut, they were super speedy with delivery and it came to around £23 ish all together. I do think its fab! I don’t know whether it rivals the REN radiance renewal mask however. But, it does make your skin appear clearer and more luminous. I use it around 2-3 times per week, depending on how my skins looking…

Then lastly I took a little trip to York designer outlet… There is a fab shop there called The Cosmetics Company, I also know there is one at Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet. Any whooo, I picked up these two products, the first being a cleansing oil, by Origins. Now, I’ve been trying out a number of facial oils from Shu Uemera, DHC and Clarins Pure Melt and wasn’t quiet ready to hand over the spondoolies, as there pretty $$$$£££. So I settled for this gem, I think I paid £14 and I think it’s usually around £20 and it works a treat. It does a really good job at taking all your makeup without feeling like your being harsh on your skin. It smells very aromatherapy-ee and feels lovely to use.

Next, I picked up Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Powder Pink. This is the old packaging, I think, hence it being in the outlet, but it looks like you get more then the pot rouges in the new style, not too sure on this, but I have the pot rouge melon and it seems just a taaad bit smaller… hmmm. I do love cream blushers so now have both the miracle touch and this to play with whoohoo! I haven’t used it properly yet but I’m sure it’ll get its wear! Yep, yep!

Much love!

Twenty Something Snippet: Mini Meltdowns!

20130602-190815.jpg
So being twenty something your young free and fabulous, no responsibilities, the worlds your oyster, blah blah blarggh!

And whoaaah there you are mini meltdown central…What’s going on?

Your suppose to be twenty something living life, partaaaying, but your an inconsolable emotional ticking time bomb feeling all sorry for yourself!

But…Hey it’s okay…

What I’m trying to say is that those inconvenient little meltdown you may experience or shall we call it ‘quarter life crisis’ is NORMAL. Very normal, especially nowadays…

I speak from experience ladies and gossip regularly with friends about it.

We all have something in common and ask the catalyst question…Is this it then? Life? Now? Me here doing what I’m doing… Is the grass greener? Nobody hands you a text book that tells you this is how you need to be or this is where you need to be going.

The most important thing to remember is to surround yourself with lovely people that support you.

You are doing okay, if anything fabulous! Those mini hiccups make you who you are. They help you get through you your twenties and beyond.

Much love and twenty-somethingness.
