I feel obliged to write a post about something thats very womanly and a little bit disgusting but that needs to be addressed! This morning, after having a gorgeous but exhausting Christmas day eating my bodyweight in Matchmaker chocolates and Turkey roast dinner, I decided to treat myself to an indulgent bath to read a book. This relaxation plan was totally destroyed when i looked down and saw what could only be described as a couple of Cocker Spaniels resting comfortably on my legs “CRIPES” I thought, “Where the HECK did all that hair come from?! Have I honestly not waxed or shaved these little bad boys for so long that they now resemble PUPPIES??!!” 

Here’s the thing, I wear tights all day, every day and only ever have a quick glance in the shower so I haven’t checked out my pins out properly in ages and they’re totally neglected! The colour resembles an off-white/yellow colour (Which i can only assume is old tan?!) and they’re covered in bruises and, of course, the  previously mentioned HAIR. My poor boyfriend! And there’s me thinking that when he clutched my legs in the middle of these cold, wintery nights that it was accidental or a new form of foreplay, now I realise he’s selfishly attempting to keep warm! 

It just comes down to the winter months, and that’s who I’m blaming. As soon as June hits, I scrub, shave, wax & tan. I use cream after cream to make my legs softer than a baby’s bottom and then wear the minimum clothes i can get away with so I can show off the hour workout for Chezza Cole inspired legs. THEN, as soon as September hits, I cover up, dont wax/shave and could easily be mistaken for a Wilderbeast hiding out in the woods waiting to get some scram for tea. 

Point I’m trying to make is, why do we feel the need to let ourselves go a little bit during the winter? Is it cause we feel there isn’t any need to bother if nobody but ourselves will be seeing it and we won’t be showing it off? If so, do we ever only preen ourselves so others can see our goodiesat their best? Have we forgotten who we should be preening ourselves for? Or is it simply a matter of wanting to feel snuggly in the winter months?  

 All i know is, after an embarrassed face and shaking my head at how badly i have let myself go, I quickly remembered Roy had gotten three razors for Christmas SO, now I stand, armed with a brand new Gillette (with matching wash bag and gel don’cha know!) and I’m ready to take on any challenge. 

Now all I’m dreading is seeing what my armpits look like….

HELLO! Sorry i have been a bit vacant for a while I don’t seem to have to headspace to sit and blog at the moment. I know it sounds silly, i do have lots to say but when it comes to it, it all comes out a bit skew-wiff..ya’know? Anyway, i’ve bought quite a few things lately so i thought that would be a good way to get back on the writing wagon..

On Saturday i went to my local charity shop with Roy’s mum to look for a book she’s after. I’ve never thought of looking in charity shops for books before but there are some absolute treasures in there. I bought a couple of girly romance books and then came across  ‘Vogue Guide To: Skin Care, Hair Care & Make-up’ book for 30p and HAD to buy it. It’s from 1981 and has loads of hints and tips for hair, make-up and general skin care. When i’ve had a proper read, i’ll share the tips with you guys!

Also, every now and then i seem to run out of all my make-up at once. I don’t know much about make-up so i usually run into No7 in boots and cry for help and i always end up spending a bomb and coming out of there feeling like i have loads of things i dont know how to use. (See previous blog posts for huge rant earlier in the year!)  But for Christmas last year my mum bought me lots of No7 goodies and one of them was a No7 ‘Stay Perfect’ eye shadow palette with a cute little mirror and i love it.

( L-R: 1) Vivid Violet, 2) Lilac Sky, 3) Island Sea, 4) Comet, 5) Truffle, 6) True Gold 7) Innocence 8) Tender)

I’m in love with the Innocence colour. It’s like a creamy white and goes on really nicely. Also with the two purples i like to put the lighter one in the corner of my eye and the darker one blended off it to make it look kind of funky. I’ll add a picture next time i try it!

Anyway, I went into No7 to see whether they still sold Innocence (as you can see, im running low!) and luckily they did. I was also running low on blusher and i wanted to try a new lipstick because i never really do anything with my lips other than carmex and i think a little bit of lipstick every now and then can just make you feel so sexy and feminine and because i spent over £22, i got a free watch..bargain.

The lipstick is really nice. It is quite red though so i have to tone it down with a couple of kisses to some toilet roll but generally i love it. I have quite big lips anyway so haven’t noticed any serious volume but what i would say is i do have to moisten my lips with balm first just because it kind of dries them out a little bit.

I’ve been looking a lot on YouTube lately and there is a brilliant blogger, i think her name is Lollipop26, and she did a demo with St Moriz fake tan and it looked fab so i popped into TG Hughes and they had it reduced from £3.99 to £2.99 so i picked up some of that to try next time i fancy tanning myself and i’ll do a review.

If you’ve never heard of St Moriz before, its a foam pump self-tan and supposed to be a big rival to St Tropez. I’ve never tried St Tropez but everyone raves about it so i jumped on the wagon for St Moriz. For a full review check out Lollipop26’s YouTube Channel for more information!

SO, that’s all i got! I’m gonna be doing some videos this week so i’ll upload those. One will be a ‘What’s In My Bag’ and the other will be the ‘Top Shoes’ video so watch out for those!

Also, once everyones back from holiday we will do a podcast FOR SURE.

Make sure you subscribe guys!
