New HairCut........

Well... I had put it off long enough & was in need of a good haircut :)

After having my daughter 9 months ago i lost alot of hair, i usually have really think hair but it was falling out badly & now it has started to grow back BUT... it was driving me crazy as i hjad little tufts all at the front & everywhere so i wanted a cut to blend them in & let them grow along with the rest of my hair so.... I went for a full fringe :) Something i have never had before.. What do you think??

Now the next step is Stripping out the black (I bought the Colour B4) & dying it a vibrant red!!!

I passed My Theory Test.... Go Me!!!!

I took my Theory driving test last week (30-3-10) I PASSED!! Woo Hoo!

I was so pleased with myself, i have been taking driving lessons for a while now but have been putting off doing the theory as i get very nervous on tests, I have always been the same, my mind just goes blank :) No idea how i'm goinmg to get through the practical! lol!

But... What i actually wanteed to write the block about was.. The practice discs you can but for your pc to help you prepare for the actual test. I very stupidly bought one from Ebay months ago & oh what a surprise it was a dodgy one, which i didnt realise until the day before my throery test! AArrgghh!!!!

It only had 150 questions on the disc (which i had learned) But.. There are 900 questions all together!!!

So you can imagine total panic set in, i had to fly to the supermarket (Tesco) & but a practice disc from there the night before, i practiced & practiced all that evening & the following morning totally convinced i was going to fail :(
But i didnt!!!! Woo Hoo!!

So basically be warned DON'T BUY THE PRACTICE DISC OFF EBAY!!!! Get a legit one from any good supermarket....

Now i've to just just get ready for my practical!!! panic, panic, panic lol!!!

Have a good day :) :)

Finally Finished.....

Woo Hoo!!! Finally it is finished :)

I started this kit a few weeks before my daughter was born, She is now nearly 8 months old!
As soon as she was born the poor kit got left in a cupboard :(
I fianlly picked it back up a few days ago & have finally managed to finish it.
The kit is called Vervaco- Lips, It is beautiful shades of Black, Grey & White & stitched on 14ct White Aida. All together i think it took me about 3 weeks to create.

I have to say im quite pleased with the turn out!!

What do you think?????

My Nails For Today.....

Here i am wearing CND- Girlie Pink, It is a beautiful dolly pink, I love the colour BUT not over keen on the application, It went on very streaky & took about 3 coats & you can still see some streaks in there :(

Nail polish for today... :)

This is my polish for today, OPI- PARLEZ-VOUZ. This is a really pretty Murky Purple colour, it looks very pretty on!

I was a little worried with the application as the 1st coat didnt go on very well, it was very streaky but after the 2nd coat it turned out well

Nail polish for today.....

This polish is CND -Plumville<>>

This polish went on really well, i was nicely surprised, i could have got away with only 1 coat but decided on 2 anyway as polish always chips fast on my nails (yes they are my own nails not falsies lol) people ask me all the time if i have false nails lol!

I bit,chewed & ravashed my nails for over 17 years, believe me they were a mess, i still remember my dad making me wear gloves in the house to try & stop me biting them lol!

Anyway back to the polish, it covers really well & the brush is just the right size for easy application, i can say i will be buying more of these.... I do really like them

Laser Eye Surgery.....

Ok this is something i feel alot about......

I had laser eye surgery 5 years ago with Ultralaze & i now have 20/20 vision Hooray!!!

I just wanted to right this blog as i know there are folk out there who are maybe considering it but are scared or worried, believe me i was one of them people, i was terrified! BUT it was the best thing i ever did.

It is scary as you have no clue exactly as to what they are going to do, its ok for them to try & tell you but its totally different when your laid on the bed with a huge machine over your head making very scary noises at you!

I have to say one major thing which is YOU DONT FEEL A THING!! IT IS TOTALLY PAINLESS.

The only part i found uncomfortable was the suction part as apparently i have small deep set eyes but like i say it was uncomfortable not painful. Plus they do offer you a sedative if you are very nervous!

ok once you have had the laser done, you will need sunglasses as your eyes will be very light sensative & i mean very, my experience was as soon as i walked outside into the daylight i couldnt even open my eyes so i really suggest you have someone go with you (i had my mum).
It doesnt last long but you need to wear sunglasses for 2 weeks if you are outside & glasses with non-prescription lenses for 2 weeks too to prevent dust going into your eyes while they heal.
Oh & one major thing NO MAKE-UP FOR 2 WEEKS!!! AARRGGGHH!!!! LOL!

The aftercare from ultralase was fantastic too, they were always on the other end of the phone if i needed them.

the day i had my treatment i came home & fell asleep (prob with all the worrying lol) i was woken up by my son coming in from school, i opened my eyes & could actually see his face so clear for the first time without the aid of glasses or contacts, i was so overwhelmed i cried!

This is just my experience, everyone is different & my advise is to ask all the questions you want & look into it all. my eyes cost £2500 but the way i see it i was buying new glasses every 2 years & contacts every months along with cleaning solutions so to me it was an investment!

I really hope this has helped some people, if anyone wants to ask me anything else about it then please leave me a comment :)

For My Daughter...♥

So this was one of my gifts for my daughter, i stitched the Cinderella & Ariel before she was born & saved the middle aperture for a newborn photo of her (which was taken by her godmother)

I was really pleased at how well they turned out, i stitched them on printed 14ct Aida, they have little pink lines running through the cloth. The kits were Vervaco.
Beautiful Ballet Shoe, i have recently added my daughter's name too it & it is now framed. This one is also Vervaco. I have to say they are my favourite

It's my Birthday today "14th Feb"


Well i spent a nice day with my family, it's my first birthday with my beautiful daughter, which was amazing :) (she's only 6 months)

I had my handsome 3 year old son singing "Happy Birthday" to me which was totally adorable.

I even got a birthday card from my eldest son & his girlfriend (he's 16) he even bought it himself lol!

It has just been a lovely day with friends & family popping in throughout the day.

Also to everyone......

Botanics Day Shift Moisture SPF 12 Cream

I recently purchased the Boots Botanics Day shift Moisture Cream, so far i am liking it alot.... As it says it is a cream & it is rather thick (which is what i need, i have quite dry skin)

I was using the Clinique Redness solutions but i ran out & wanted to try & find a cheaper alternative ( i only seemed to need the redness solution while i was pregnant)

I do like this cream, i have only been using it a few days but my skin is soft & my foundation goes on well, with no dry patches.
only downside is i have to wait a good 15-20 mins for it to soak in before applying my make-up. which for me isnt really a problem as i normally get broken off during my make-up application to tend to my kids! :)

The cream also smells nice, it has a nice clean, fresh frangrance to it, not too strong or overpowering.

The price is £4.99 at Boots & at the moment the whole Boots Botanic range is on offer at 3 for 2 (cheapest item free)

I have to say that trying this product hasmade me want to try others so i'm going to have another wander to my Boots store very soon :)

E.L.F- Undereye concealer & Highlighter Rave....

I have to say i have tried a lot of concealer in my time & have found most to be very drying or chalky BUT I LOVE this concealer ♥
It is so easy to use, it blends really well & i dont look like i have got dry patches anywhere
I bought the light as i am fairly pale
I use the concealer under my eyes & even my eyelids & it covers well, I use the highlighter in the inner corner just to brighten my eye..
I am most def going to be buying more of these so i have plenty of back ups
I ♥ E.L.F!!!!

Face for today - New Revlon Photoready Foundation

This is my look for today using my new Revlon Photoready foundation in 004 Nude...
(sorry photo not very good, i dont own a camera so i use my phone ☺) I have to say i really really like it & taking a photo was great, normally i look very gaunt in photo's but i think my skin look quite flawless. i do have dark circles red patches on my face & this product covered really well, i didnt even need to use alot of concealer....
I applyed with a MAC 190 foundation brush & set with my mineralized skinfinish natural in medium.
So big thumbs up for me ♥ ☺

Essie- Matte About You

Firstly i have to say i really like this product, I love matte polishes but some of them can be quite pricey But with "Matte about you" its not a problem....
You simply paint your nails as normal & allow to dry fully, then apply a thin coat of Essie- Matte about you & let dry, you can actually see the polish turn matte, ♥ It's amazing ♥
No more having to buy expensive matte polishes, you can use this product on any polish of any brand.
If anyone was wondering i bought mine off Ebay for about £7.95 but its well worth it!!

Finding the time...........

First of all i have to say i totally & utterly love & adore my children BUT.....

It is so hard sometimes to find any time for myself, I have 3 children & 2 of them are under the age of 4!

I need me time!!!!!!! It drives me nuts sometimes

By the time i have sorted the little ones out in a morning with breakfast, washing & dressing it's almost dinnertime (12 noon)
then its trying to put my Slap on! Sometimes it takes me nearly an hour & thats because i have to run in & out to sort the kids AARRGGHH!!!

Oh & dont get me started on teenagers....... They are more stressful that little ones (at least mine is)

I tell you know wonder i have high blood pressure lol! :)

Anyway thats my rant for the day :)

Homemade All Natural LipBalm

I have always had trouble with dry lips, so i decided to after spending a lot of cash on loads of lip balms & butters to try & make my own with ingredients i knew to be good for the skin.

After a while of mixing i found a good blend for me, i also added different flavours i like too.

I started out putting the balm into pots which was ok but i found that they were alot harder that way so i bought lip balm tubes instead which i find alot easier.
Now i have friends & family using my balms & they love them!
