Afternoon ladies! I hope your all having a bloomin’ good Friday!  I’m in a totally chipper mood today because Friday’s seem to bring out the best in people. I’ve been tweeting all day and everyone is in such a good mood, it’s a really good vibe over there. I love the banter i can have with some people and we don’t even know each other in person but it really can affect your mood and make you feel happy! (I like feeling happy..)

Also, being that it’s FRIDAY means the weekend is here and  think you’ve all established how much i like the weekends. Tonight is going to be fun because Kate is back from holiday (looking all tanned and beautiful!), Harriet has a night off work (yay!) and our old friend VC (Viccy!) is back in town so were going to have a lovely ladies night out! GIRL POWER! VC cracks me up, we’ve been talking on Facebook all week and just getting each other all excited for when we go out. My favourite quote of hers was “I’m wearing the highest heels ever..but they make me look like i’ve pooed my pants so, Sar, if i’m doing a ‘I’m having a poo’ face, tell me and i’ll snap out of it!” Haha, hilarious.

I love girls nights.  I mean, boys will definately be around eventually, but I love the whole ‘meeting first for wine and gossips’ cause everyones shouting over each other and giggling and squeeling and it’s just the most fun EVER! Gotta love being a girl!

Because none of us know what were wearing, we can’t do Outfits Of The Night YET, but i’ll be very snap happy throughout the night and make sure i post the good ones asap!

In other news, I recorded a couple of videos that i’d seen on YouTube recently. One is the ‘Favourite Shoes’ tag, the other is ‘What’s in my bag’ tag and the third was a little intro to say HELLO to YouTube! I’ve only uploaded one so far because i wanted to test the water and see if people even liked what i had to say and so far people have been really kind so i’ll upload the others one by one over the weekend and hopefully keep up the recording!

Because im not self-hosted, I cant embed the player into my blog so i’ve cheated and added the picture below and made it clickable so if you click it, you will be automatically directed to my channel..clever!

Right, so that’s all i got i reckon! I’ll do lots more blogging over the weekend to update you on some exciting news for Share Your Style so stay in touch!

Big Kisses..

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.

(L-R: Innocence Eye Shadow, Wild Volume Lipstick in Ruby Glow & Natural Blush cheek colour in Soft Damson)

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!

I wish i had been this creative...

I wish i had been this creative...

Ahh, I’ve had a really bad week so far. Monday i had yet another ridiculous experience in the rain. (SORRY, i know this isn’t intended to be a weather blogbut it seems i have a pretty bad time with the weather at the moment..) and i couldn’t take the awful umbrella out because of last times disaster so i ended up buying a copy of the Sun to use like in the old American films when business men in trench coats run across roads to jump into cabs in New York and look gorgeous and romantic. I, however, did not. The wind was against me and the paper just did NOT want to stay still. It was a wet, windy, papery disaster. I even got mocked at by a couple of kids.

Note to self: gold moccasins don’t like the rain..

  

When Women Rule The World.

When Women Rule The World.

 

Moving on, I saw a programme the other night called ‘When Women Rule The World’ and it was seriously the biggest pile of rubbish EVER. I’m not a feminist, but i’m not against women’s rights either. I just honestly believe women and men should be equal and they’ve already shown this, physically and mentally. The programme just throws it all down the drain. If you haven’t seen it, it’s about these 8 or 9 women who run a tribe together and they’re the leaders. There are 10 guys who have to do ANYTHING the women say and if they don’t they get punished. The winner does get £30,000 for good behaviourbut even that doesn’t seem worth the money to get treated like rubbish!  The one episode i watched was this poor guy who was a bit of an alpha male and in no way enjoyed being told off by women but (he was funny because he made a comment about one of the women looking like an angry Diana Ross – she really did!) anyway the women had these really stinky attitudes and just kept eviling the men and demanding they clean up (even when they did, they shouted more?) it was just stupid. It maybe could’ve been a good experiment if the woman didn’t treat the men so awfully on the first day!

 I do think a lot of men still believe in the whole ‘women clean, men work’ scenario but lots of men DO stay at home whilst the woman works so it’s much different then it used to be. Obviously everyone differs with there own views but  i have to admit, when i was single i felt so much more of an ‘Independent Woman’, ‘Sisters are Doing it for Themselves’, ‘I’m Every Woman’ kinda gal but sometimes, i really enjoy feeling looked after, wined and dined and protected by a male but women should definitely do it back from time to time…

 Fun Sites:

My Dailybooth

My Dailybooth

As you’ve all probably noticed, on the side bar there is my Twitter and Dailybooth accounts i keep updating. Follow me on both if you have them! If you don’t know what Dailybooth is, it’s a fun little site where you upload pictures of yourself daily like on a webcam, or macbook etc to show how you change day-to-day. I’m finding it really fun so check it out!

Sorry I’ve neglected the blog lately. I’ve found it really hard to be creative in a place that makes me kind of miserable 8 hours a day but i promise I’ll keep on the ball now. I’ve had a bit of a nightmare with video blogging though. It definitely is happening but i wanted to get a web cam up & running first to do personal mini videos to make it more visual until i got a proper video camera but I’ve tried 4 now and had no luck. Went out and got a cheaper 5th one today thats had good reviews so fingers & toes crossed!

Okay, couple of updates. ‘Becky’s tried and tested’ section has got TWO new installments for you to check out and I’ve put up a little humorous bit under ‘Beauty & Style Tips’ about a disaster i had with my eyebrows. Becky’s are relevant to it so check them out. Tomorrow I’mhoping to get up another bit for ‘Lust List’ and hopefully crack on with some videos so it’s very exciting. The subscriptions button was also a little bit broken but I’ve managed to fix it now so don’t forget to subscribe so you don’t miss out on anything!  

So, sorry this has been so long winded, but i had lots to update you on! If you’ve got any comments, pictures or even video responses  for anything relevant on the blog, or just to say HELLO! then definitely do it because i love hearing what you have to say and what your up too etc!

Big love,

Sarah xox

Bloggers! Exciting news!

I’ve been mind mapping alot today with Becky and to make this blog abit more real and fun, the tried & tested section is going to involve videos. A group of us are going to get together and test out some products just for you guys so you can see EXACTLY what happens (and when and if it goes terribly wrong!!). It’s going to get messy i can just tell, but hopefully you’ll think it’s lots of fun. Videos coming soon bloggers! Got any products you fancied trying but got cold feet, let us know, were more than happy to be your Guinea pigs!!

Also, were going to be putting up more photos to make the blog feel more than just words! So far, i’ve added a couple to the ‘Who the hell are you?’ section for me & Becky but they’l be more as the site progresses!

Don’t forget to subscribe and tell your girls to get involved too! Get chatting, even though it’s still work in progress, doesn’t mean we can’t have fun, tell us your stories!!

Thanks to everyone who’s subscribed so far, you’re great! xxx
