Since monday 19/march/2012 I've been taking pics and videos to watch my progress. I've also been keeping a food, measurements and exercise diary as I have been told these help.
Im on the right lol, Except I dnt feel fat just jiggly :(

Punky Pins

Hey guys,
So after a not so fun day at uni I am greeted with a delivery from Punky pin :) .
Its a site I came across Last week on a fellow bloggers page. Laura's @ Secret Diary Of A Fashion Journalist. I absolutely loved the piece she had got so I had to take a look at the site.
They certainly had some amazing pieces and I couldn't choose just 1. And since I' m trying to save money I didn't think it was a good idea to just buy everything I like. lol. So then when I came across the Mega mystery bag I got excited :). I dedcided to get the £10 one that contains £25 worth of goodies. And this is what I got:
Some Badges

Robot Necklace
 My favourite Item 
A Cute Bow pendant Necklace

Marine inspired Charmed Necklace 

'LOL' Studs - How cute :) 
Owl hair Pin - Super Cute

I really like all the piece's there so cute and unique, nothing i have seen before, I really like getting "Mystery box's", I got one before with Dainty Roses. I personally feel the surprise element add's to the fun off shopping, and makes it more exciting. I mean who doesn't like a surprise? Especially when your guaranteed a great outcome as the site is full of super cute goodies :)

Has anyone else tried out this site?

I Hope everyone has a great week

Topshop Eyeliner (review)

Hey guys 
So heres  what the two topshop eyeliners look applied. (Please excuse my tired/dopey looking eyes lol.)

Magic liner on top lid 

Magic Liner in black (felt) : £8

I really liked this product. I like felt liners anyway as their easy to apply and control. I really liked the intensity and colour of this brand in particular as its very dark, bold and last all day. Since buying it ive worn it every day :) 

Magic liner on top lid/ Kohl Pencil on water line 

Liner in Kohl (pencil): £4

This didn't seem like anything special to me, really just your normal pencil liner. It does smudge quit a bit, as you can see in the pics. But it is very dark and apply without having to push down very hard. And at £4 I cant really complain. I love the packaging on this to supper cute I think.

Topshop Lipstick - Clueless (Review)

Hey guys, 
So Heres my review on the TopShop Lipstick, that I had brought recently. 
  • First off all I love that its in a crayon form
This makes it very easy to use and it prevents that lipstick breakage that can happen when you press down to hard on a regular lipstick (which has happened to me on many occasions x_x).
  • Its very easy to apply
Comes on very smoothly and leaves your lips felling creamy all day.
  • The colour is very bright and long lasting. Really pops out
I wore it out to uni the other day, and i got quite a lot of compliments. although I'm not to sure it suits me. may take some getting used to. It might just be a glammed up lipstick rather than a everyday.
  • It has a Life expectancy of 36months and it only cost me £7 :) 
So even if I don't wear it everyday, it doesn't go off for 3years compared to lipstick I've paid more for that have only lasted 6 - 12 months. So i guess this is a bonus.
  •  Last off all I love the actual Interior  
The packaging although quite plan looks gorgeous, Its an amazing colour. And i love the shape of it.

Here is the lipstick applied 
I think it might be worth my trying a different colour. Altogether i give this product 9/10

Here's a quick video demonstrating how easy the application is, and the final results. 

Has anyone else tried this product?

New Nail Dotters :)

Hi guys.

Just thought I'd show you my new dotting tools that came in the post this morning.

They only cost my 99p on ebay, isnt that amazing. They're so colourful and cute, I cant wait to try them, Should make patterning a lot easier.
My seller was great it was shipped from Japan so it had said to wait 11 - 23 working day, but I ordered mine on wednesday 14th March and they came today so that was only 2 days so I'm quite pleased with that :) The return address says Portsmouth though so I guess that has something to do with the quickness lol.

My seller isn't selling them anymore but You can get  similar pair's here.

Just a quick post before I head out, hope everyone has a great day. Designs coming soon :)

Please excuse the picture quality :( 
I haven't tried any of there Topshop - Make up cosmetics before, but I tried some of the samples and these are a few of the pieces I really liked.

1. Lipstick in Clueless (pencil)-> £7
2. Magic Liner in black (felt) -> £8
3. Liner in Khol (pencil)-> £4
4. Nail art pen in Barbarella-> £6.50

They are priced quiet decently as well all 4 products only cost me only £, so I was very pleased. Cant wait to try them out properly.

Mini "DIY" - Accidents can make cute "DIY"

Hey guys
So I was putting on my shorts this morning and my button pops off :(. I loved these shorts I got them from New look last summer, and they became one of my statement pieces, so I was kind of upset when this happened. Anywho I wasn't gonna let this incident stop me wearing my favourite shorts so I searched for the button.
Then I released it was those funny sort of button that cant be sewn on, so I was just going to see if I could super glue it back on lol. you can probably tell I really do love these shorts. Anyway so I got out the super glue but then I thought to myself how would a different button look, it might give it a subtle newlook. Maybe even a splash of colour. This created my "Mini DIY".
What I used 
Added each button 1 by 1 
 And here is my final results, I love them I think it looks sort of retro in a way :) It's such a small DIY, but it gives of a great new look.

Sorry for the blurry pics all taken on my phone

What do you guys think?
I know its not much of a difference lol but I think I love them even more now.

Hey guys

So I brought my April addition of my favourite magazine cosmpolitan :) and this issue has teamed up with Clinique which our giving away some great samples.
April 2012 Addition 
So there are four products to collect and every issue has two. Lucky I found an issue that had three products :) so this is what I got.

I found this cream very light and moisturising, should be great in the summer when you dont want something really heavy
-Clinique super balm - moisturising gloss
This came out very gloss. It apply's on smoothly and leaves your lips very soft, isn't sticky at all. However doesn't have any colour, comes on clear.
-Clinique high impact mascara 
I have yet to try this, but it is supposed to lengthen and define without clumps

I love freebies :),

This issue is also doing a great 40 piece £55,000 worth of treats. To be in the chance of winning some of these lovely goodies you can enter the competion on there site here.
