Why is it that as I sit here watching Carrie walk in to her brand new utterly amazing shoe closet which her knight in shining armour built for her (not literally,but still), I cant help but feel jealous, and I cant help but wonder why.
I have a nice life, I have a great family, good friends and am happy but yet when I see what others have got I feel like I don't have enough. I get jealous when I see other women with their husbands, boyfriends, fabulous haircuts I just cant help it even if I don't actually want what they have.
Today I saw a girl who I used to go to school with, she was always quite popular, she was driving a Mercedes and had a wicked figure, I felt embarrassed that I do not possess these things even though I don't particularly want them am I that shallow I'm not normally like this but sometimes I cant help it, why do we always want what we don't have, even when in reality we don't really want it I know it pushes us sometimes to be better but I don't want to be that person who feel not good enough around others when I feel good enough in my personal life and around my close friends and family.
Am I making sense or just babbling......You don't have to answer that!
Thats it really, Just a little musing of mine, I shall get back to the Sex and the City film now.

So as you know I have been trying to lose weight for a very long time. I have tried every diet going, from slimming world to the cabbage soup diet (yuck never again) and the cereal diet to slimfast and so far none have worked for me.
I have a slight addiction to food, I eat when I am hungry which is ok and when I am bored and fed up which is not so good. I don't know why I eat really I guess it sometimes makes me feel better in the moment. But I know that it is not good, as I eat all the wrong foods.
So I have now decided to take on a new weight plan, The Cambridge diet, has anyone ever had any experience with it? I was told about it by a friend of mine who has lost a little over 4 stone so far on it since March 2011 and she told me about the site and on it is a forum, well when I went on it I was amazed at the amount of people not only doing it but having great success on it as well, the link to the site is www.cambridgeweightplan.com. If you are considering doing it check the website out, there is so much info on there and the forum is amazing you can talk to real people who are doing the pal right now.
I know that I need to take food out of the equation, I know it sounds so extreme but I am in need of something to shake me up. I have about 8 stone to lose, yeah I know its a lot but I am going to get it off.
So with the diet you have three shakes or soups a day if you are under 5 ft 8 or 4 if you are over and around 2.5 to 3 litres of water a day and maybe some gentle exercise and that's it really I know the calories are about 4 hundred that you have a day and some people will criticise but I want to try it.
I will put one post a week up from when I start which will be either next week or the following about how I get on and how much I am losing and I hope you enjoy them.
Wish me luck

Ok so until very recently I didn't even know what a primer was, I know shock horror! But after watching so many of the Youtube beauty guru's who are Pixiwoo where they spoke about primers and used them in some of thier videos and their skin looks amazing, I have oily skin and I had noticed that I had to top up my foundation during the afternoon where it had come off because of this, so I thought I would look around and use a primer under my foundation that stops my skin from being so oily and that is when I found L'oreal Studio Secrets smoothing resurfacing primer and oh my gosh I am so glad I did.
I brought it from tesco and ok it was a little expensive it cost me around 10 pounds and the pot is quite small, I was a little apprehensive to begin with because it was so small but I had read some really good reviews from the both the L'oreal and Boots website so I thought I'll give it a go.
I had heard that you only needed a little tiny bit so I took that advice and only used a small blob the size of a pea or smaller, it feels quite wierd to begin with, I smoothed it on my nose, chin forehead and cheeks anywhere really that gets oily during the day it felt like as soon as you rub it in it goes to a powder and makes your skin feel so smooth.
I put my normal foundation, powder and makeup on over the top and I really noticed how well my make up stayed on all day and how smooth my skin looked, it also reduced the look of the pores and blackheads on my nose and made my skin more even or at least look it anyway.
I would definitely recommend this primer it really has made my skin look better, less oily and helped my makeup stay on longer, the only tiny downsides are the price it's more than other drugstore/chemist primers like Rimmel and the pot is small but as you dont need very much it does last quite a long time and it is so worth the price especially if you have uneven, large pores or oily skin.
So as you may know I am constantly on a mission to find a product that will make my skin feel and look amazing, you know the brand new skin of a babies?Well I want something like that so over the years I have tried everything, so I will be reviewing the products that I think make a difference and hopefully one day the product that tops all else, Im hopeful I really am.
St Ives apricot face scrub, I have been using it for years, it is the only facial scrub I will use over and over again now I am not the type of person to rave about something if its a bit rubbish so you can be reassured that I really do rate this product.
With most face scrubs, with the exeption of a suger scrub, the little scrubby pieces are nearly always very fine and I hate that, I want to use a scrub and feel a difference on my skin afterwards and St Ives does this, the scrubby bits are very corse they are made from apricot, walnut and kernal pieces so they get rid of all the oil and dirt on my face and I have blackheads on my nose and although they dont get rid of them, I mean what does, they definitely appear smaller and less black, you only need to use a small brussel sprout sized blob to cover the whole face I spend about 3 to 5 minutes rubbing it all over to make sure I get it everywhere.
The smell of the scrub is lovely and fresh and clean smelling sort of like a menthol smell but not, sorry I am rubbish at describing smells, I use the Blackhead and Blemish clearing scrub, they have quite a few types such as one for sensitive skin, one for normal and maybe one or two others.
I really really like this scrub it makes my skin feel clean, smooth and less oily its not the miracle worker that I am looking for but when I use it 2-3 times a week it makes a hell of a difference and I would nt recommend this product for someone who has very sensitive skin as I said you can use the one specifically for your skin type.
So Hi this is my first blog, a few things about me, I love all things beauty I am definitly of the opinion that more is more, I love all kinds of lotions and potions anything that says Miracle is put in my basket in a flash.
I am always on a mission to find a product or treatment that will make my skin look like a babies, it hasent happened yet but I stay strong for the sake of my pores.
I love fashion, being a bigger lady means that I have to work that bit harder to find clothes that will suit my shape so you can expect me to blog my trials and tribulations on my journey to find clothes that look good on me and my mission to fit in to them.
My family is my world I spend a lot of time with them as we are very close, I also love music, Doctor who and writing, I have had panic attacks for ten years but I do not want to let them stop me from having the life I want although its hard sometimes, I want to do a skydive and swim with a blue whale although I have a phobia of very large things (Oy cheeky!!) so I don't know how thats gonna work out.
So thats it thats a little about me, I expect you will get to know me if you follow me and find out more about my life and daily musings, I hope so anyway your more than welcome.
