New Years Resolutions For 2013!


Lose Some Weight!
Ok, so this is such a cliche new years resolution but I'm about 7 stone overweight(Cringe!), so I really feel I need to do something about it. I'd really like to get down to a healthy weight. I know losing 7 stone will take quite a long time so I'm aiming to lose 2-3 stone this year and that will hopefully make me a size 14/16 which would be wonderful instead of my current size 18/20.
I aim to achieve this by...
- Using MyFitnessPal to track calories.
- Going for a 1/2 hour walk, 5 days a week.
-Limiting Takeaways/Meals out to special occasions.
- Meal Planning


Limiting Fizzy Drink Consumption
Keeping on the food/health theme, I'll be the first to admit that I am pretty addicted to diet pepsi and I'm also quite partial to lemonade. I know these drinks are full of rubbish but I do really love them! I think they've become a bit of a bad habit and one I'd like to at least limit if I can't break it.
I aim to achieve this by...
- Only buying fizzy drinks to drink at the weekend
- Only allow myself to buy 2 bottles per week(this will be between two people)
- Ban myself from buying diet pepsi at work when I need a caffiene fix.


Save Up For Christmas
Me and my boyfriend both really love Christmas, we love spoiling eachother with lovely presents, we adore the food,the decorations, the socialising and the family time. However Christmas is an expensive time of the year and being skint in Decemeber sucks! So I have decided to save some of my wages each week towards Christmas, this money could be spent on presents, nights out, Christmas food, new decorations or anything else festive!
I aim to achieve this by...
- Saving £5 a week in a tin that will go and live with a trusted friend until December.
- Saving £3 a week towards works Christmas night out(this normally costs £50 or less so I should be in profit!)
- Saving £2 a week in Morrisons saving stamps.

To Blog More
I've been pretty rubbish when it comes to blogging recently but I really love it and want to make it a regular part of my life again. I also want to produce some quality posts about topics/products that I really love.
I aim to achieve this by...
- Keep a notepad specifically for blog post ideas.
- Try and blog five times or more per week.
- Enjoying myself whislt doing it!


What are your New Years resolutions?

Happy New Year!

November Favourites

Hi everyone!
Long time no see...
I've been a bit rubbish with blogging recently and the lack of decent light isn't helping!
But anyway here are my November favourites....

Urban Decay Vice Palette
This is such a beautiful palette! My boyfriend was kind enough to treat me to it at the end of October and I've been loving using it. The shadows are amazing quality and there's a great mixture of neutral, bright and jewel colours.
Here are my favourite shades...
Burt's Bees Mango Lip Balm
Such a moisturising lip balm, it really feels like it's doing my lips a lot of good when I apply this. I've been using it non stop! Throughout the day and at night time.
Soap and Glory Hand Food Hand Cream
As the weather's been so cold recently this hand cream has been a lifesaver! It absorbs really quickly, smells fantastic and is really good for taking care of dried out skin.
Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in Honey
For the past couple of weeks I have worn this pretty much everyday! It's so gorgeous but I won't go on about it too much as I'm going to be reviewing it soon. :)
Avene Rich Hydrating Cream
Since the weather's got colder my Soap and Glory day cream hasn't been cutting it, my skin's been so dry and needed a richer moisturiser before I put make up on. This has been the answer to my prayers, it works like a dream!
No7 Stay Perfect Eyeshadow in Mink
This is a really pretty shadow and perfect for an all over the lid colour for a quick and easy look. The colour is a bit difficult to describe, so here's a swatch...
