Hi Guys

Hey beauties how are you all?! 

I am sorry that I haven't blogged in the past week or 2, the reason for that is thanks to this little furry black ball pictured ^

Yes, its Winston! So Winston has been an indoor cat for almost a year now and when we moved to our house in April you could tell he wanted to try and investigate the outdoors. So like over protective parents Gordee and I went and bought a lead for him so he could try out the outdoors of the back garden. Where we live there is a busy road outside the front of our house but we hope he will stay round the back of the houses and just roam around there. Well we have been doing this for the past few days out on the hot sunny days and the cheeky little monkey caught fleas! The past week we have been flea bombing and cleaning this flat, currently hoovering everyday, have piles and piles of washing to do, the poor cat has had plenty of baths. This has been consuming my days for the past week and its driving me mad!!

I am finally getting on top of the mountain of washing, the fleas are slowly going, my bites are fading slowly and Winston has been clean from fleas the past few days. It can take up to a few weeks to get the house completely clear of them so we just need to keep doing what we're doing. I could give you top marks on flea bombs, flea cleaning sprays, flea prevention sprays, flea treatment and flea prevention treatment but that would be a rather dull post. I haven't forgotten about you lovely lot I have just been super busy cleaning my house :(

There will be a new post up in the next few days and I will be getting back on top of it soon.

Love you guys

This Weeks Nails: Essie Lilacism

So lately I have been painting my nails a lot more and I'm actually really enjoying it. Its almost therapeutic taking off the old nail polish, selecting a new shade to wear, prep'in the nails with a good old file the occasional buff and a few coats of base before the chosen shade gets brushed on. Love it.

As you may or may not know I have a huge amount of love for the Essie nail lacquer. They have every shade you could think of with some of the most quirkiest names. I just love standing at the Essie section in my local Boots trying to decide what shade of orange, red or blue I want, cause theres more than just the one of each shade. And it takes some serious thinking which shade is what your looking for. I only go to the Essie stand if I have a shade in mind.

This weeks shade is Lilacism!! I got this in a set that I actually think came out for mothers day. I just loved the 2 shades in the set it was this one and another called peach daiquiri I think its called. Anyway that shade is for another post. This post is all about the Lilacism! Starters I love Essie's packaging nice and simple with the white really makes the shade of nail lacquer pop out more. The name 'Lilacism' is cute and the shade itself is the perfect shade of lilac ever!!! If your looking for a lilac polish look no further, this is the one your needing. You only need about 2 coats of this to achieve the shade that you see in the bottle. Just look at those snaps ^ *looks at photos*^ isn't it just lovely? Will look really nice with a little tan in summer time too! Another thing, I love how long this stays on the nails, I have had mine painted since Sunday afternoon and I only have 1 chip (on the usual nail) which doesn't surprise me from the cleaning I have been doing this week, but I'm amazed at the rest lasting so long. I am really loving this weeks shade and I really recommend it, if your looking for a lilac shade this one is just so lovely.

Essie Nail Polish Lilacism £7.99

Hope you guys have enjoyed this little post on my current nail polish, I might make this a weekly thing as I really enjoyed it. Share with you what one I'm wearing and what my thoughts are on it.

Is there any polishes you recommend?

Thank You

Benefits "that gal" Face Brightening Primer

Okay so the other week I was having a bit of a rubbish time so I took to the world wide web and went on a shopping spree, of course was all make up related products I purchased. One of the main things I was excited for was the Benefit "that gal" brightening face primer, having used it years ago in my teens and loved it back then I hoped that the love for this product would still be the same. I wasn't wrong.

Lets start with the packaging shall we?! how cute is it?! Love the pink sky and the small pictures of the buildings with the little trees at the bottom, very sex and the city I think. Then when you open the box the tube has the images from the box also on the label so if you do through away the box at least the tube continues on with the cute packaging. 

The primer its self can be used on make up free days or can be used as a base for make up, I have been using it on both. On my make up free days I feel it just enhances my skin making it look healthier and brighter and on my make up days it defiantly helps my make up stay on for longer. To get the product out you twist the bottom part till you see the product coming out through the little holes on the top. Its light and creamy in consistency, a light pink shade, blends into the skin perfectly. It is a rather expensive product however you only need a little, I tab a bit on my cheeks, forehead, chin and nose, just blending it in with my fingers. My skin feels lovely and soft after applying it. I'm so glad I purchased it again, I think its going to be a primer I will always end up going back to.

Is there any primers out there that you recommend?

Benefit "that gal" brightening face primer £22.50

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know any thoughts or if you just want to say hi that would also be nice.

Thank You

Check In Tuesday #10

Hey Guys, how are you all doing? I cant believe we are on another Tuesday already?! Seriously where are the days going? We are almost in the middle of the month.

So here is another Check In with you guys from the past week:

  • Driving Progress Report: I have been going out and about in my mums car the past few days just getting all comfortable in her car and I'm slowly growing on my confidence. I am actually really enjoying it even though sometimes I do get nervous cause I'm in the car with my mum and I want to make her proud.
  • I went to see The Fault In Our Stars on Friday with my girlies, I read the book so I knew what I was letting my poor emotional self in for.....my goodness!! My eyes were still suffering on Saturday from all the tears!! I thoroughly recommend seeing it. If you can read the book first (its one those quick reads) do it, then see the film. Or see the film then read the book. Either way they are both awesome.
  • Carrying on The Fault In Our Stars (well kinda), I have been listening to a lot of music lately on my iPod. My current faves have to be The Fault In Our Stars Soundtrack my fave song on it has to be by Kodaline called All I Want (you need to listen to this beautiful song and watch the music video for it) and I really like Charli xcx song Boom Clap. I been listening to Ed Sheeran's new album too and of course Lana Del Rey (love her), that woman can sing. Her new album Ultraviolence is just beautiful.
  • Does anyone else just get paid then feel skint (poor) like the next day? haha honestly I just been paid and I have so much things happening this month that I feel the beauty treats are going to have to be put on hold this month. I have been raiding my cupboards and found a few forgotten gems so been using some of them in my routine lately. Might even blog about some of them.
  • I have a new addiction people and its youtube but more importantly its a certain channel, it s The Sacconejoly's!! They are this family that lived in Ireland they have just moved over to England and they have a girl who is the cutest little toddler ever, an adorable baby boy and 6 dogs!! They vlog every single day! Showing what they get up to in their general family life! I love watching vlogs and this family are my new favourites, Check them out HERE
  • I been feeling pretty happy and lucky the past few days on just my life in general. I'm so lucky to have some pretty awesome friends I honestly don't know what I would do without them I love them and they know who they are! I love my little poppet aka Gordee (boyfriend) he never fails to make me smile even when I have a down day. And last but not least my family, they have made me who I am today, I have had many ups and downs in my little life but I feel that they have made me who I am today which is a pretty happy and positive person. Thank You and I Love You.
That's all from me this week, I hope you guys have enjoyed this post. I haven't done much really apart from cry at films haha.

Be back tomorrow with another post.
