The year to date

Hello gentle viewers, how are we all doing?

So 2018 is just flying so thought I would catch you up on where I am. So I took a break from the old blog as I just didn’t feel like I had anything worth talking about, I’d lost my inspiration and well basically life just got in the way.

But starting to feel like I’m ready to be back so here we go, quick recap on the year so far

January

New year, new me…….. nah i started with 10000937463 resolutions as always and right now I can’t remember a single one. Had a birthday, the big 37 came and went with the minimal of fuss, and by that I mean no one remembered, my own fault for taking it of my Facebook but come on guys.

February

Returned the old bouffant to its more natural colour, brunette. So far it not the worst so I can live with that. Found out I had a place on the great north run so quite chuffed about that so pretty excited to start training. Started a new work placement in London, which has been fun if a little ( a lot) expensive.

Oh yeah and then subsequently handed my notice in

March (so far)

Cut my hair super short, loved it for 0.00064 seconds. Pierced my nose again! Bought all the books,way to many for any sensible person to reasonably want but hey.

I’m also setting some new goals/resolutions because who says they just for Jan 1st.

1) hardest but most interesting. Not cutting my hair till I’m 40. That’s right 34 months to see what can be done, I must caveat this by saying there may be the odd trim and shaping into style while it’s growing otherwise it’s just going to be a little to cray for work etc

2) read at least 1 book a month. Should be easy but as life gets so busy sometimes it’s the little things that slide. If you have any recommendations let me know.

3) train for the GNR, its a half marathon but as someone who can’t currently run 5k this is going to be super hard. Send me all your positive thoughts please.

4) get these expenses and debts sorted, curb the spending and start the saving.

I’ll be tracking the old hold hair progression as I go. Here we are at present

Speak soon lovelies

Bags for life

So my not to secret guilty secret are bags. I love them, I can’t stop buying them and I’m running out of excuses to keep buying them.

But before that happens I’m going to share my latest treats. 

Now as you may or may not know my parents live in France and whenever I visit I’m always mesmerising by the fashion. Now I know they gave many of the same shops as we have here but they obviously have different stock.

Now bags are a different matter. I love the designs in Desigual, they are just different, quirky and I can never just choose one…….. so this time I chose 2

This cute tan and tapestry Boho one, smaller then my usual style but I couldn’t resist


And this super denim one (oh yes and the purse ooooooops)


Every so often I gift my bags to friends who’ve always said they liked them or charity shops but it’s the hardest item of all to give up

Wish me luck 

Favourite summer look

Summer, you remember that right? I think we had about a week of it here in the UK. Anyway blessed with a tan from my holiday to Jamaica I attended the wedding, well vow renewal of some old friends. 

I’d had my eye on a maxi dress for some time, just a matter of finding the right one. Then after spotting this beauty on twitter I had to get it from Simply Be


It was perfect, I mean look at it.

The prefect summer dress. Teamed with summer wedges and this gorgeous embroidered bag from New Look.

Wedding outfit complete


All about holding onto those last sunny days………. oh and burgers

Box of LOVE

Its that time of the month again….. Glossy box time

As it’s February its all about the love so lets see what i got

This moths offerings were;

La theorie des Volcans Face Scrub – I’m firm believer in a good ole scrub. Clear away the dead skin a build up of time and oils on your gorgeous face, always make me feel extra clean and ready to face the day.This is one with a twist, its also a face mask, apply and wait till it change to grey then wash away. Its paraben and silicone free, vegan and 90% natural! I cannot wait to try this out

Jeanne Arthes – L’Eau de Rose – this literally smells like the rose perfume you tried to make when you were younger. By that I mean when you tried to make it and you thought how it would smelt, not the weird dead flower mess you were actually left with.  It is so light and breezy with a little hint of the gorgeous rose scent. This is my handbag bottle for the month!

Mememe – Beat the Blues (oyster gold)- a skin illuminator to give you that light dewy finish. Will be trying this out on my next evening out…. whenever that may be

img_5265

Ciate in Fade to Greige – a gorgeously taupe colour to bridge that gap from winter to spring. Once my nails have recovered form the false nail removal I will be painting the town greige with this colour!

hope you’re all having a lovely February.

have you tried any of the above?

 

 

 

here is my face!

so i am very much an all the gear no idea kinda gal with most things in my life.

My face is one of them. i have all the makeup and brushes a girl might need but no clue how to slap it on and make it look good.

therefore i enlisted the help of the gorgeously talented  Frankie Noone from @frankie_noone on twitter and frankienoone on the old instagram to help make me look semi human

you get me right?

so i wanted a perfectly natural day look.

nailed it

then i wanted to be able to build it up for a subtle evening look. this is where i usually struggle, I add far to much and look like i just dived into my mums make up bag and motorboated the blush.

apologies for the extreme close up and grey roots but hey thats life

 

Frankie’s studio is a work of pure joy, and she is a total babe

 

 

So here goes my attempt to look more human on a day to day basis

FYI

Make up used was mostly Chanel, MAC, Benefit and NYX
