Plus Size Pride 2016

Image
Hi Everyone 

Hope your all ok. 

There is a really exciting event taking place in Warrington on Sunday the 16th October and I am lucky enough to know the two amazing women who are putting it together. 






Jordan Ozmaya who is also Miss Curve Northwest Rose and her best friend Rosie Shields are two of my friends. They came up with the idea of Plus Side Pride in order to encourage more people to have pride in their body. The motto of the event is 
''Bringing an end to Body Shaming'' 
                                                             ( Jordan and Rosie) 


In the society we live in today, there is a LOT of body shaming, whether that is in the media or comments on facebook, instagram or twitter by stupid little trolls. We live in a world full of hatred and that is a very sad place to live, but these two have come up with a way for us to help and encourage people, not matter if you are a size 2 or a size 32, whether you are black or white (yes I sung Micheal Jackson in my he…

Great Northern Wedding Show 2016

Image
Hello Everyone,

  For those who don't follow me on social media, I would like to let you know that I have gotten engaged since I last posted on here. Also hit that follow button for instagram haha, I post almost everyday. 

  Anyway I have been having a lot of wedding fun, looking at dresses, find ''The Dress". Looking at venues, finding the venue, bridesmaids dresses and so on and so on. 

  One of the things I have wanted to do is go to a wedding fair, to look at the few things we still weren't sure of, like photographer, suits and a couple of other things. So Paul found the Great Northern Wedding Show at the USN arena in Bolton. I made sure I booked the day off and we went. 





 The event is organised by a company called Little White books (I will link all websites and social media below). A huge positive for this event is if your pre booked it was free entry, even if you just turned up on the day it was only £2 per person to get in, so BARGAIN!!!!

 Another big draw for …

My Current Relationship 30 Day Blog Challenge

Image
Hi Guys 

Hope you're all ok. 

As you can tell today is all about my relationship. As a lot of you know I have a boyfriend and his name is Paul. We have been together for almost 2 years. 

Honestly I don't have a clue what else to say about my relationship, so I suppose I'll give you a brief history of it (haha I sound like I'm writing an essay). 

 So like I said me and Paul have been together for nearly 2 years, we met through a mutual friend and just got talking. Before meeting Paul I classed myself as gay, all my previous proper relationships had been with women, but when I met him something happened and it just felt right. I hadn't met anyone like him, and he just made me feel safe (he still does).

Oh god I'm sorry I know this is a proper mushy blog post. 

 In the beginning we had to over come the distance between us. I was living in Birmingham with my mom and dad and Paul lived in Warrington. We went back and forth on the train and it was so hard let me tell you. …

10 Years time 30 Day Blog Challenge

Hi Guys 

Hope you're all ok. 

So continuing on with my Blog challenge I would like to go a bit into the future and see what I would love to be doing and where I would like to be in 10 years time. 

I would like to be working from home, maybe blogging full time or making youtube videos (which I know doesn't happen over night but I love it and would love it to happen). I love the idea of being a stay at home mom but I know I would get bored so I would need something to do and something that I am passionate about. 

So the second thing as you guessed from before is I would love to have at least one child. Me and Paul have spoken about kids and we both want them and I am hoping that give it 10 years I will be 38 and I will have had at least one child. 

Specking of me and Paul, I would like it if we were married. Like most little girls I have had my wedding planned out in my head since I was about 7 but since growing up the details have changed (plus I suppose Paul needs to have a say in …

The Power of Make Up

Image
Hi Guys

Hope you're all ok

I have been having a little break from my blog but I'm back and here to stay.

This post is based on a youtube video I recently watched by Becca Rose. She is one of my favourite youtubers and I am a bit obsessed with her channel. A few weeks ago she filmed a video about the power of make up, she had gotten the idea from another youtuber (Nikki Tutorials). (To watch their videos please click the links below)


Becca Rose
Nikki Tutorial 

 The video is all about how women are seen by some men as being fake when they wear make up. There has been a number of memes and pictures flying around social media like this :












Which is aimed at other men, telling them to take girls out on a first date to a swimming baths so they can see their true faces. 
There has even been a story in the media (although I am not sure how reliable it is) that a man was sueing his wife for mental damages after seeing her with no make up on the day after they got married
I don't wear make u…

Boots No 7 Moisturiser Review

Image
Hi Guys

Hope your all ok 

It has been AGES since I have done a product review and so I thought ooo I have been using my No 7 day cream for a while so I would let all you guys in on what its been doing for me. 

So here we go ... 

For all of you who have followed my blog from the beginning you know I am a bit of a brand follower. I will find a brand and if I love it I will buy everything, but and here is the shocker, I am a trying to get out of this routine. 

The moisturiser I have always used has been my Nivea Daily essentials day cream for normal/combination skin. It really had been part of my routine since finding the brand when I was 18, oh gosh nearly 10 years. 

 I decided I needed a change when the skin on my t zone started to become very flaky even after moisturising. So when I went into boots one day to top up on my foundation I found a new one. 

I spoke to the girl at the No 7 counter in Boots and told her about the problem I had been having, I originally thought it had been the chang…

Current Skin Care Routine

Image
Hi Guys
Hope your all ok
Here we are 3rd week into mine and Nat's combo posts and I cant believe we only have 1 more left after this, I have come to love our combo. Gonna miss it.
This week is all about skin care, what we use and how it helps us.
As anyone who has read my blog for a while knows I am a very big brander, as in when I find something I love I will follow that brand to the ends of the earth, but this year I am trying to break with tradition and venture out to a bold new world of brand new products.
This blog is a perfect example of how my skin care has slightly changed over the last year. I think I did a blog similar to this a few months back and that was all based on Nivea. Although there is a couple of Nivea products in here, this blog will show how much I am branching out and using others too :D The first thing I would like to talk about is my make up remover, and surprise surprise its Nivea hehe, it is the Nivea Double Effect eye make up remover and I hand on my heart wi…

Current Hair Favs

Hi Guys 

Hope your ok.

So here we are in our second week of mine and Nat's combo post, this week is all about our crowning glory, Our Hair.

I have always had problems with my hair because some shampoos I have used have irritated my scalp. I have found that some will make me really itch, so it has taken a while for me to find the right product. 

Lately I have been using Argan Oil on my hair, I am using the shampoo, conditioner, mask and treatment so I am going to be showing you how I use it and how it has helped my hair. 


So firstly the Shampoo. 




I have wanted to try this range for a while because I have heard so much about it, I bought all of these items in Home bargain's where they were about £1.50 each, which I think I defiantly affordable. This shampoo is a lot different to any I have used before, it is more runny and it takes a bit longer to develop in your hair. With this what I am finding I do is apply it to wet hair then leave it in for a while, rinse off and then I do it aga…
