MAC Hue Lipsitck

This post has been a long time coming, yes this first ever Mac Lipstick! I know, I know call myself a beauty blogger but at least I now have one.

To be honest I had no idea what I was looking for formula wise I just wanted a nice every day colour for work and I ended up picking the gorgeous Hue.

Hue is a subtle pinky nude shade, kind of like a’ Your lips but better’, I think in the photo it doesn't really look like I’m even wearing any (I am, I swear) which can be a good thing if you’re planning to wear it for every day occasions. The formula is really creamy and doesn't dry my lips out.

I did find the staying power wasn't as great as I expected but I assume that’s because of the Glaze finish.
Nevertheless I love applying this and I think I have definitely caught the Mac Lipstick bug, Snob and Rebel are next on my hit list!

What was your first Mac Lipstick? Which would you recommend?

Currently Loving...

Nars Deep Throat Blush ♥ Origins Ginzing Eye Cream ♥ Maybelline Color Tattoo On and On Bronze ♥ Benefit Total Moisture ♥ Rimmel Kate 107 Lipstick ♥ Real Techniques Blush Brush

Deep Throat by Nars has to be one of the most beautiful blushes I own, it's a gorgeous warm coral colour with a very subtle of shimmer, its a bit more wearable for every day then the infamous Orgasm. This has been my go to every day blush for about 2 months now and I cant see it being replaces anytime soon.

The Real Techniques Blush Brush goes hand in hand with Deep Throat, it's like they were meant to be! The brush is so soft and applies the blush effortlessly, you really cant go wrong with real techniques.

Just as I ran out of moisturuser I received this little pot from Benefit for my birthday and I have to say i'm impressed. I've no had much luck with Benefit makeup but the skin care has been much better. this moisturiser leaves my skin so soft, I like to use it before bed.

No eye cream had really knocked my socks of until I tried this bad boy. The Origins Ginzing Eye cream is fabulous and just make you look do much more awake in the mornings, I couldn't be without this now.

The next to products are one's I've fallen back in love with. On and On bronze is stunning and so good at keeping your eye shadow in place. The name Colour Tattoo couldn't be more perfect as this stuff just doesn't budge!

Last is my trustly Rimmel Kate 107 lipstick, a real blogger fave and rightly so. The colour is so striking and it stays on my lips for hours, I'm quite lazy when it comes to topping up lipstick so when they have amazing staying power I know I have a winner.

What products are you loving at the moment?

Overnight Oats!

I am such an Instagram stalker these days, it has possibly become my favourite social networking site and I particularly love looking at food, yep that's the fatty in my trying to rear her ugly head. Lucky for me there are lots of accounts that are all about health and clean eating and something that regularly pops up are ‘Overnight Oats’. Probably the easiest thing to make ever it maybe shouldn't be called a recipe but i thought i would give you an insight in to my new favourite breakfast anyway.
You will need:

125ml Milk, I use unsweetend almond milk
2 large tbsp Greek Yoghurt
40g Oats
The Topping of your choice

Step one:
Add all the ingredients apart from your topping into a bowl.
Step 2:

Step 3:
Pour into an air tight Container and pop into the fridge.

Step 4:

Step 5:
Wake up and add your desired topping to your oats (today I opted for banana and chocolate protein powder) and EAT.
It couldn't be any easier! And you have no excuse to miss breakfast.

I love to add blueberries to mine, and sometimes some sugar free jam or peanut butter or a bit of chocolate protein powder the options are endless.

So there we go quick, healthy, tasty breakfast. What did you have for breakfast today?

White Lace

Top: Choies* Jeans: New Look Shoes: New Look: Scarf: Asos

 Show me something pretty and girly and I’m all over it but I love to try and add a bit of edge to an outfit so it’s not so sweet and innocent.

My jumper from Choies is so beautiful and so soft! Do you ever have clothes that you just love to touch, is that weird? Well sometimes I can’t help it and you know you have something that’s good quality when you stroke it all the time haha.

The lace detailing on the arm is super pretty, the first time I wore this people were literally throwing compliments at me and for someone that is as self conscious as me it was really up lifting.
I added a red scarf to give my outfit that extra pop.

I think the little furry photo bomber is a fan of this outfit, what do you think?

Fitness Haul!

A little fitness haul for you today.  I really believe that if you have new things that you feel comfortable in and make you look pretty good then you are more likely to get up and do some exercise, it’s amazing how some new trainers or a sports bra can give you that extra bit of motivation! So after a little trip to Sports Direct I am ready to work out.

The trousers are by USA Pro Sport, they are so comfy and not restricting at all, I actually think they make my legs look pretty good! There are perfect all different kind of sport and i know i will get a lot of wear out of them.

I was in desperate need of a new sports bra and this Lonsdale one was exactly what  was looking for, and it has pink on it so event better!

The Nike trainers have to be my fave purchase, they are so springy they made me feel a bit like tigger haha running on the treadmill didn't feel as much as a chore today.

Lastly I nipped in to Primark and picked up these colourful vest tops, they are stretchy but not clingy and cost about £2 each you really can’t go wrong.
What do you wear to work out?

Miss Monochrome

Jacket: Choies* Cami: New Look Jeans: New Look Boots: New Look Bag: Zara Necklace: Dorothey Perkins

Friday night was date night, and I always like to make an effort when we get a rare night out together but now the weather is starting to get colder it’s getting a bit harder to find that perfect balance between style and warmth.

I am in love with this jacket from Choies it adds a bit of sophistication and doesn't leave me worrying that I will get cold during the night. I’m also such a sucker for monochrome; black and white is flattering on the majority of people as its simple and classy.

I opted to pair my jacket with a plain cami, skinny jeans, boots (and a cheeky glass of red!) perfect date night material.

You like? Winter doesn't seem so bad when you can make it as stylish as this!

London Calling

Last weekend my house mate and I went to visit our friend in London, it was the best! I don’t think we could have fit more in if we tried, from big breakfasts, to roller discos and posh hotels! It was the perfect weekend away I needed as since starting my new job work has pretty much taken over!
We arrived on Friday night and visited a roof top cinema in Peckham Rye, I’ve never been to a roof top cinema before and I was so impressed how they had decorated it with fairy lights! We sat down in our snuggies with a burger and cider and enjoyed the delights of ‘Mamma Mia!’ haha enough said.
From the roof top we could see a car park opposite filled with people, it was a bar! Perfect.
The next morning we had to start at our favourite place ‘The Breakfast club!, check out my Mexican style breakfast, delicious!
Next we found a boat which was actually a bar right opposite the London Eye, pretty great view don’t you think?
After the boat we decided to go a bit more up market and have a bottle of wine in the Corinthia hotel, o my goodness I've never been anywhere like it, its like a completely different world. It was so beautiful and it was quite nice to have doors opened and your wine poured for you! We also decided it was the perfect time to try an oyster...when in Rome! It was weird, I’d probably try one again but it didn't blow me away.
A little sop at Shoreditch House for a cheeky bottle of prosecco!
We then headed to the roller disco; I was the only one that didn’t fall! It was actually a bit scary some people were so good they just zoomed past you nearly knocking you over!

We finished the night with a bacon sandwich and probably the best cup of tea ever, it was so badly needed!
On Sunday we headed home, after a cheeky curry on Brick Lane of course. It sounds like all we did was eat and drink... I can’t argue with that haha a great weekend with great company.

Where do you like to go in London?

Putting Bread Back On The Table!

I love bread. I love sandwiches, toast, garlic bread...I could go on, but as I am trying my hardest to get in shape unfortunately for me I have had to limit my bread intake and it hasn’t been easy. My healthy eating has included lots of protein, veg and fewer carbs, obviously I haven’t cut carbs completely but I’m avoiding 
white processed products and to be honest it makes me feel a heck of a lot better by doing so.

Any way I’m sure you can imagine the happy dance I did when I was offered to try Dr Zak’s Protein bread, the words protein and bread aren’t usually 2 things you would associate with each other so I was intrigued to say the least!

Dr Zak’s Protein Bread is made from all-natural ingredients and formulated to deliver the perfect balance of protein and carbohydrates in every slice.

In 2 slices there is over a whopping 30 grams of protein, when a normal slice of bread usually has around 2 grams! This is great for people trying to lose weight as it keeps you fuller for longer, I know a lots of products claim to keep you fuller for longer but honestly this does.

The best thing about Dr Zaks Protein bread is that it tastes exactly like normal bread. I usually do the ‘healthy’taste test on my boyfriend , if I swap an everyday product and he can’t tell the difference then I know I’m on to a winner, in this case there was not a scrap of his scrambled eggs on toast left on the plate!

Toast with peanut butter for breakfast for me is such a treat and so indulgent and just tastes that much better knowing its guilt free and that I am actually upping my protein for the day. Today’s lunch was a ham salad sandwich, I can’t remember the last time I took a sandwich to work but it kept me full all the way up until dinner time, result!

What do you think? Have you tried Dr Zak’s Protein Pread?

HAUL: Primark, H&M, New Look

I've been shopping! Just a few little bargains I picked up the other day, I've never bought so many different sizes for clothes and thinking about it I didn't by one item in my actual size! Some are smaller some are way bigger so no wonder people get issues with how big they are. O well as long as they look good! 
Primark Trousers £12 Cami £6
H&M Trousers £12.99 New Look Cami £10 Primak skirt £4
Primark shoes: Cream £8 Black £12
Pyjamas £8
Necklace £4 Rings £2

Patterned trousers are my weakness at the moment they seem to be taking over my wardrobe, I can't wait to do outfit posts for these.

Cami's are everywhere at the moment and I think they are so flattering but I Just cannot justify the Topshop £18 price tag, good job there are cheaper versions around for me!

Surprise, Surprise I picked up the Disney pyjamas I'm missing Florida so much! I love that these have old school Mickey on they are so cute!

Cheap and cheerful jewellery you cant go wrong.

What do you think? what have you been buying lately?
