January 2017 Favourites

January 2017 Favourites Always Believe In Yourself Slimming World Planner As I mentioned in my 2016 goals recap I’ve been following Slimming World for a little while now. For me it isn’t a diet, it is a healthy lifestyle change and one that I have found very effective for my weight loss. As a way of keeping track of my weight loss, I asked for a planner for Christmas. Marc very kindly got me this beautiful Slimming World planner and I must admit, I love it. It has weight and measurement tracking sections, weekly meal plan sheets, daily meal plan sheets and…

2016 Goals ReCap

2016 Goals ReCap Last year I set my 2016 goals. Instead of setting really difficult goals I set goals that I knew were achievable. In total, I set myself three goals. Here is how I got on: Lose Weight – Recap At the start of the year, I was at my heaviest weight I’d ever been. I was very unhappy and really very, very self-conscious. My aim for the year was simply to lose weight. I wasn’t too fussed about a quick weight loss, I just wanted the weight to come off and stay off. So how did I get on…

2016 Favourites

2016 Favourites Astral Original Face and Body Moisturiser* The first product to make it into my 2016 favourites is Astral Original Face and Body Moisturiser. This is a product that I’ve fallen head over heels in love with. If you’re someone with very dry skin, seriously I urge you to try this. Astral Cream is basically a thick moisturiser. It is very affordable yet extremely effective. I use the cream both morning and night and I’ve definitely noticed a huge difference in my skin. My skin is much softer, smoother and my dry areas have improved fantastically. I’m not the…

December 2016 Favourites

December 2016 Favourites Affordable Oval Makeup Brushes The first products to make it into my December 2016 favourites are two oval makeup brushes that I purchased as part of a set on AliExpress. These oval “toothbrush” style brushes have been everywhere recently. Many brands seem to be creating copies of the famous and expensive Artis brushes and these brushes definitely fit into that category. Now I’ll be honest when I first saw these brushes I thought it was just another trend. I didn’t think the brushes would be that great. However, I did order myself a set of five brushes…

The 12 Piece Professional Makeup Brush Set That Cost Me Just £3.00

The 12 Piece Professional Makeup Brush Set That Cost Me Just £3.00 If there’s one thing I like to save money on it is makeup brushes. I buy a lot of my brushes from AliExpress and to be honest they’ve always been perfect quality. Because many of the brushes come direct from the manufacturers it means that prices are super low. However, most manufacturers are in China which means that the brushes can take a little while to arrive. Personally, this isn’t something that bothers me but I know some people find this frustrating. Some of my favourite AliExpress brush…
