It’s all in the eyes …#transformulas

As Autumn gets well and truly underway , everything moves forward a notch.

Mollie gets her last walk before dark descends which is alot earlier than in the summer months.

I tend to take her across the road to the ( very handy) woods.

A wasted childhood spent watching way too many horror films ( I like to get my adrenaline running fast) combined with an overly vivid imagination means I daren’t venture into them there woods unless it’s in bright daylight, there are birds tweaking around my head and there are plenty of other  people mooching around…

Even then I’ve been known to freak out ! The trees watch me I swear … Continue reading

Veggicol and H3O Hydration by Rejuvenated…

Veggiecol from Rejuvenated

I’m a big believer in supplements.

I think it is equally as important for our skin  what we put into our bodies  as well as what we put on it.

I’m a big fan of collagen shots which I have been using on and off for the past couple of years.

I’m also a massive fan of Alex Steinherr the beauty editor of Glamour Magazine. She has amazing skin, access to the best of beauty and I stalk follow her on snapchat (asteinherr)

Despite what people think Snapchat isn’t just for the kids. Ok some of the filters are hilarious and I’m guilty of messing around.  I do however  follow a bevvy of  beauty and lifestyle bloggers. I find their snaps are addictive and very informative.

Ms Steinherr’s makeup routines snaps are truly fabulous. If your a makeup junkie like me you will love them.  I swear she creates a glow (on her skin) like no other.

One snap intrigued me … a photo of Veggiecol , which she is a big fan of and takes daily. Continue reading

Instantly Ageless …

Not many things in life leave me gob-smacked.

Well I tell a lie … 

… there was that time my friend Becky did a triple cart-wheel across a crowded bar flashing her knickers at all un-sundry and almost taking out half the customers … oh and that night we went to see Indian Elvis ( I’ve never laughed so much ) 

They both left me pretty gob smacked for totally different reasons .

I’ve lost that blogging feeling …

I’m having a ‘lost my mojo blogging’ moment.

It happens.

Some days I wake up and I know exactly what I’m going to write about. I’m full of inspiration and I want to share it.

Not today.

I’m thinking maybe I’ll write about Lola my beautiful cat I lost over a month ago ( some shithead knocked her over and chucked her in a bush)

Too depressing.

Then I’m thinking shall I wing it and just ramble .

I’m winging it a lot lately. Direction … I need direction.

So let’s talk about my mood … Continue reading

Dance in the rain …

This post is brought to you by false tan ( in anticipation that I might go bare-legged anytime soon?) and a shed load of Easter eggs. If I didn’t know better with the current size of my tummy I’d recon I was about 4 months pregnant.

Mum don’t get the banners out … I’m not. Honestly. I’m not.

I’m just a chocolate monster who appears to be retaining chocolate, in the same vein that ‘normal’ ladies retain water before their period .

Anyway it’s been a while…in the blogging world anyway .

How you doing ? (this must be read in a Joey from Friends voice)

Basically I’ve been out of sorts and quite frankly exhausted (I’m on prescription Vitamin D and Iron tablets and keep forgetting to take them) I’ve been sleeping a hell of a lot and I’m sick of the house looking and feeling like a building site.

Good news though  … we have what resembles a kitchen. We have a fridge  freezer people . We have a fridge freezer! It’s been a while  (November) and yes I can often be found just looking at it longingly . Yes, yes… I may have even stroked it a few times.

So today I thought I would update you on a few things, mainly my current skincare routine. Continue reading

This weeks favourites…lippy, music 1980 style, Mr Malik and is he really going out with her?

I’ve spent the day with the Mr.

We are in the mid-throws of decorating our living room. There’s been lot’s of chat … mainly of the is “Cheryl really dating Liam” variety (and so far not much painting!). It’s Sunday we don’t do taxing conversation.

Coffee and pastries have featured highly and I’ve insisted we have MTV on so I can catch up on the Top Ten. I’ve been obsessed with the Top Ten since the early 1980’s when I used to sit in my bedroom with my cassette player and tape it…

Yes kids this is what we used to do on a Sunday night. It was a highly skilled job I can tell you. Recording as much of the song as possible but cutting out the DJ crap. Rewinding to within a millimetre of your life. We’d listen to our tapes until the following weekend when we’d repeat the whole ritual all over again… Continue reading
