My New Blogging Routine..

Following from my 'What I've been up to' post, I decided that my blogging routine needed a bit of a shake up. Therefore I'd just like to let you all know what kind of schedule I'll be following..

Monday - Mani Mondays
These posts will be about different nail art I've been trying out as well as nail polishes I've been using.

Wednesday - What I've Been Wearing Wednesday (Make-up as well as outfits)
I'll be summing up what I've been wearing, on my face as well as my body!

Friday - Fitness Friday
I'm becoming a mega fitness/weight loss/health freak and will be sharing my progress as well as helpful tips.

Sunday - Summary Sunday
These posts will just be a summary of what I've been up to and what I've been loving that week!

There'll be odd little posts here and there with reviews and things I've been getting excited about but those are the main posts I'll be writing every single week! This will start as of next Monday (3rd June)!

Hope you like all my upcoming posts and hope you enjoy these types of posts!!

Blogger Birthdays..

I just saw this cute blog and thought it was such a good idea!! Basically it's a calender which has lots of blogger's birthday on, so you can keep track of them all! (You make so many friends via the #bbloggers community it's hard to keep up sometimes)

Definitely check it out! xx

Where have I been??

Okay so, I've been MIA lately (well since January) and I thought I'd just update you all on what I've been getting up to and exactly what happened.

So as some of you who follow me on twitter may know, I was made redundant at the end of December and my boyfriend had been made redundant the previous month, so we had to move out of our house and move back in with our parents. Some people may not see it so badly, but when you've been living independently for so long, having to move back in with the rents is stressful stuff. Needless to say, with no cash coming in and therefore no cash to spend, our lives revolved around sitting on the couch and watching TV from morning til night.

However, very luckily we both managed to get full time jobs, starting within 3 weeks of each other and with coinciding pay days for both of us.. So we've started to get the spring back in our step and finally can see the light at the end of what has been a very dark, upsetting and hard tunnel.

These last four months have been very hard, and has really made me appreciate the free simple things in life, and that money and a job needn't be the centre of your universe. Things like good company, a sweet text or even  long walks by the sea are what is really needed in life.

But onwards and upwards, and I will be starting to blog again! I was going to start a couple of weeks ago but I dropped my phone down the toilet and lost all of the photos I had taken.. Typical!!

What have all you guys been up to since I've been MIA?? xx

First Wishlist of 2013

I love getting new things. I think everyone does don't they? There isn't anything better than coming home after a long day shopping with arms full of shopping bags, or hearing the sound of packages through the door. However, as many people are feeling the pinch after spending too much over Christmas (or in the sales) leaves us feeling blue. Therefore after adding way too many things to my basket on various websites, I thought I'd share with everyone what's on my wishlist. Plus I'll be starting my own spending ban at the beginning of February, I thought I'd get all this out of the way. 

Nars Laguna Bronzer
Urban Decay Oz Palette in Theodora
Rimmel Apocalips in Luna
Benefit's The Porefessional
Ugg Classic Short Boots in Black
MAC lipstick in Politely Pink

I can't believe my wishlist at the moment comes to over £200!! It really makes you see how much money you can spend on only a few items and makes you feel silly when you could pay for a holiday instead of all of this!! 

What's on your wishlist this year??

Aussie Haircare 3 Minute Miracle Review

For those who don't know me, I am obsessed with long hair.. I had long hair til I was 18 and in some bizarre moment of madness I chose to chop it all off.. Since then my hair hasn't grown.. Well past shoulder length and since I was dying it so much it was in terrible condition!

Therefore in April last year I took the plunge and chopped all my dead ends off and I'm on a one woman mission to look after my hair so it will grow! In my plight I decided to start using conditioner (I've never used it before this year, shocking I know!) however I still keep forgetting to condition every time.

After hearing a million and one rave reviews on Aussie's 3 minute miracle I thought I'd give it a go! Since its such an intense conditioning treatment I thought it would be better to use it only once a week, thus it doesn't matter if I forget! If I'm honest I was truly disappointed with this product. I washed my hair on the morning, yet about 8pm my hair was feeling really limp and greasy.. Normally I can leave it 2 days without washing it, yet when I woke up the next day, my hair was like a chip pan. I thought maybe I had left it on for too long (my hair is naturally oily) so I waited to give it another go. I only left it in for a minute now ( same as my normal conditioner) and I got the same results..

I do have naturally oily hair, so maybe it was just my hair it wasn't compatible with. However I was majorly disappointed as I had heard so many good things about this!!

Have you tried this product before? What were your thoughts on it???

Edit: I only applied this to the bottom couple of inches of my hair.
