Back for good.....

Hello everyone,

Ok so I haven't been blogging for ages and ages, life again took over and I had a very bad start to the year. But now I am back and I have soooo many ideas for posts and I want to really take my blog more seriously, I love writing, especially about fashion and all things beautiful.
Fashion has still been a massive part of my life, I am so happy summer is nearly here, if the rain ever stops, beautiful dresses, wedges and my all time biggest vice sunglasses will be very much needed. Fingers crossed.
My next post will be featuring some amazing dresses from the high street, I want them all so I hope you will to, River Island and Topshop have already got so many amazing pieces, next payday has been reserved already.

I heart Philosophy x x

I have wanted to try the philosophy products for so long now, they look so inviting and the names make you feel hopeful.
I took the plunge and ordered a selection.....Oh my gosh I am so glad I did.
Hope in a Jar is a moisturizer suitable for all skin types and having oily skin I was doubtful but in the five days that I have been using it my skin feels smoother and looks brighter.
Micr delivery peel, I would describe it as a bit like a scrub and like a mask and when you add the salicylic acid gel, which I love anyway because it is so good for unclogging blackheads/pores, my skin feels so amazing.
It feels smooth, bright my make up looks better and my skin tone is starting to even out.
I am a little bit in love, I will definitely be a Philosopher from now on!!

Cambridge weightplan update........

I started on the plan with the intention of losing a lot of weight, I ate so much the day before, McDonald's, crisps and dip, chocolate......I was very unprepared.
Four days in to the plan I felt like rubbish, I thought "oh well this is what it's supposed to be like"!
By day five I all I could think of was eating, I was snappy, moody and all I wanted to was sleep.
On day six I gave up, I thought I would feel really guilty but I don't, the plan works for a lot of people and so many have had great success on it. They have maintained it for a long time and live healthy, happy lives.
I would promote this plan and say yeah give it a go, but don't make the mistake like I did of thinking it will be an easy ride because it's not.
It is not a plan for me, I thought I could do it but it's just to extreme, going from eating everything to nothing in the space of a day was to much for me.
On Wednesday I went to my first ever Weight Watchers meeting..Oh my gosh I have only been on the propoints plan for three days but it feels like I have finally found the right diet for me.
I have not felt hungry at all for the past three days, I have felt energetic and happy.
I will keep you up dated as the days go on, but I am optimistic that this time I will be a stone lighter by Christmas at least.

My top 4 uk YouTube beauty guru's.....

I love YouTube, I love watching music videos, viral hits like charlie bit me and the sneezing baby panda but my favorite videos to watch are the beauty guru's.
For someone who loves make up but can't apply eyeliner for love nor money the guru's have been my saving grace, they teach you in an ordinary way how to apply beautiful make and wearable make everyday.
So here are my top 4 UK YouTube beauty guru's and why....

4. Plink278.
Plink278 real name Jessica is such a beautiful girl but so normal, she tells it like it is and shows a passion for beauty and fashion, she does great tutorials like her Nicki Minaj moment 4 life tutorial which was beautiful and she has amazing hair!!

3. Pixi2woo.
Real name Tanya Burr aka pixi2woo is a great youtube beauty guru because you can see that she has a real passion for what she does, she is a professional make up artist and you can tell, all her tutorials are very well put together, she makes it look so easy and most of the time it is because she has showed you how to apply the makeup so easily.

2. Swalkermakeup.
Sara walker is a 19 year old beauty blogger and YouTube beauty guru, I stumbled upon her videos one day when I was looking for a fake tan application tutorial and she had uploaded one, from the I watched all her videos.
Sara is so down to earth, on trend and very good at youtubing, she has two channels one is her beauty channel and one is a vlog channel, I love the vlog channels from the guru's because its nice to see in others lives. With a mix of tutorials, vlogs and hauls her channels really are excellent.
I loved her Velcro roller tutorial, she made it seem so easy to do and actually I did it after I watched it and my hair looked really nice.
Swalkermakeup is also on twitter and has a blog using the same name.

1. Pixiwoo.
I found pixiwoo about two years ago and I have been an loyal subscriber ever since.
Pixiwoo aka Nicola and Samantha Chapman are professional make up artists they have worked with some amazing beauty brands and are truly amazing at what they do.
From drag tutorials to beautiful first date makeup looks they execute every video so well and in a simple but informative way, they are lovely people and you feel that if you ever had your make up done by them they would make you feel so beautiful and relaxed.
In my opinion Sam is more passionate about the old school looks and the high end fashion model looks that are perfect for a night out whereas Nicola's looks are more about current celebrities such as Cheryl Cole and she just did the Adele Vogue cover look which was amazing, her looks are a bit more mainstream and wearable for everyday.
They also have a vlog channel called Pixiwoomadness which has some 10 minute tutorials featuring Avon cosmetics which they also have on the Mirror website.
All in all pixiwoo are an amazing beauty guru channel, the ladies take in to account what comments they get and what their subscribers want to see, featuring over the top, gorgeous look for a special night out or a elegant dainty look for a first date they have done it all and I would encourage anyone who has a passion for makeup and wants to learn new techniques to check them out.
