Sunday Sunday here again!

Hi! Blurghh.....that is the only way that I can describe how I feel today. Its been quite a busy week, I managed to complete my task of an early spring clean and getting the house in order before I start my new job (super excited!). I'm really happy that I got this done as being disorganised doesn't help with my stress levels. I think I went a little over the top with organising Mr C's T-shirt drawer, the look on his face was priceless....ranging from 'uhh she has too much time on her hands' to 'how will I ever keep it looking like this'! I also became the owner of a nice new shiny Iphone 5 this week. It will take some getting used to, I'm not the easiest person when it comes to change, my iphone 4 is still here with me until I feel I can let it go. On Friday I woke up with a huge urge to go shopping. I gave Mr C my most pitiful hangdog face and lo and behold within an hour we were on our way to sunny High Wycombe! Now as its nearly spring I th

Lazy Sunday!

Hi! Just a quick OOTD post. This is my casual look for a sunday at home. If I want to to be super comfy then I will swap my jeans for some joggers! The jeans are from New Look and the hoodie is from Gap.  Hope you are all having a lovely sunday! I'm going to catch up on Gossip Girl. I only started watching it last week and am enjoying it so far! Much Love N x

Pancake Day! Yum Yum

Image
Hi! Pancake day is here! It won't be the same for me this year though as, due to my diet, I will not be letting one of my favourite foods pass my lips *sad face*.   I hope that you have all enjoyed eating them today. When I can have pancakes I like mine simple with just sugar and lemon or fresh strawberries.   Now, after eating those pancakes you still want to look good, so here are a few tips for how to use my favourite toppings along with some products to make beauty treatments! My favourite treatment is Vaseline and sugar!   This can be used for a variety of things such as:   Lip Scrub  - Vaseline and Sugar mixed together.   Hand Scrub - Same as above but if you add in some lemon this will brighten your nails   Foot Scrub - Add a little extra sugar to remove the hard skin from your feet. To give your feet an extra treat, rub Vaseline on after the treatment, pop some socks on overnight and voila in the morning you will have lovely soft feet!  

Will you be my Valentine???

Hi! Valentines day is fast approaching! I can never decide if I want to celebrate it or not. This year I have become slightly anti-valentines. I think the reason is that I have spent so much time at home, and therefore seen pretty much every valentines advert on the TV and Internet, that it has slightly lost its sparkle for me this year. At the weekend I had a quick look at some things that reminded of previous Valentines to give me that loving feeling back, so I thought that I would post a few pics to show you some of my favourite ' love themed' items! The diamond in the final picture is not real unfortunately! But if you are lucky enough to receive one on Thursday, I hope its as pretty as this one :o) Have a good Valentine's Day, whatever you do. Much Love N x

Birthday!

Hi! So on monday it was my birthday, I'm well away from the twenties now sob sob :0(. I am definately feeling older and wiser! This is just a quick post of some pictures I took, an ootd from saturday night with the girls and some from when the other half kindly took me shopping for the day!

TDT!

Hi TDT, what is this I hear you say! Well it means TRIM DOWN THURSDAY. I have decided to do a series of posts about my weight loss journey. Now I know that people will say that they have heard this all before but I personally like reading about other peoples weight loss and how they achieved it, mainly for inspiration and also to keep me motivated. I never try and set myself a date for when I am going to start a diet, normally it's always the night before and I will just randomly turn to my partner and announce that 'tomorrow' we will start eating healthy! Since being very ill last year I had gained a lot of weight and as we are due to go on holiday this year I want to be able to wear a swimming cossie and not have to cover up under something when I go down to the pool area I do have a fair amount of weight to lose, around the 6 stone mark but I think that if I do it slowly I will keep it off this time. A few years ago I lost around 4 stone on the Weight Watcher

January Favourites!

Image
Hi!   Wow so now that January is over will the rest of 2013 go by so quickly!    I thought about my new year resolutions at the weekend and have surprised myself that I have managed to stick to more than two of them! Hurrah.   Although I am yet to start on the fitness goal,that will be this week. I always feel that if you start all of your resolutions or goals at once you are less likely to stick to them!   Today I wanted to share some of my January favourites with you. I love reading and watching about this topic so thought I would give it a go and do one myself   Firstly my beauty favs (and yes a candle managed to sneak in there somehow!)     First of all is a hair care item, Cantu shea butter for the hair is a hair dress for afro/dry hair. This stuff is fantastic!! I use it once I dried my to about 80% and then put about 2x 50p size dollops and rub from the roots to the ends of my hair and then finish drying, the result, shiny soft and sweet smelling hai
