Where have a I been?????

Hi ladies

Well firstly I have say a HUGE apology for the fact I have not blogged in over 2 months. I have had some personal issues and so much going on that my head has been spinning.

Anyway wanted to do a little post of some of the things that have been taking up so much of my time....

First up

Rachel's hen weekend - Magaluf - June 2011
One of my mates is getting married in a couple of weeks and the brides sister and I planned all the tasks and did all the extra things to make even more special. As you can imagine with 20 girls it was one to remember. If you would like to see the tasks let me know. We all had t shirts with our names on, mine was "Turbo Tongue Tracy"!!!! we had a themed sailor night and of course she had to have a little veil....

Here are a few pics:

Our Tshirts

Some of the lovely ladies from the hen weekend

Playing about on the beach. Quite impressed we managed this lol

Next up

Work trip to Chennai India - July 2011
Work has been MENTAL!!!! like seriously busy. I was asked to train a new team in India and had 2 months of really hard work, from writing testing material, testing, writing training packs, training and assessing. This has been the toughest work project I have ever done. I went with 2 friends from work who were a scream. I had lots of challenges whilst I was working away and it certainly one I won't forget...

In the airport with Jay and Lucie

Our pool - shame we did not get to see it much lol

At work

One of the many places the India team took us to

Rachel's hen night - Maidstone - August 2011
Again I helped my friend Teresa arrange Rachel's local hen night. I thought it would be fun to do a bunny theme as everyone could get involved. From the full monty outfit to just a set of ears everyone joined in. Again a good turn out of 28 ladies and with Rachel having to do Mr & Mrs and 13 tasks lots of fun was had by all....

My bunny girl outfit

The hen Rachel - we planned her outfit and thankfully she loved it

A couple of bunnies, Lisa, Lisa, me and Teresa  

So there you have it. All these bits and bobs have taken so much of my time up. Life is still all over the place but I will get back to mosting more frequently so please bear with me.  I have already bought my outfit for the wedding so will do an OOTD very soon.

Hope you enjoyed these little piccies

Love and hugs

April-May Haul Part 3 of 3

Hey ladies

Finally the last part of my haul. I am so sorry if this has bored you. As you can see I had a complete shopping binge and just wanted to share. I think that may be it for a little while :o( but I did have lots of fun hehe

H&M - £7.99
I love the colour and pattern of this cropped top. I would generally wear it with a vest underneath but it is long enough to be able to wear it alone without showing your tummy.

H&M - £7.99
Just a little vest top but again super cute for summer and I do love a little bit of animal print

H&M - £12.99 (I think)
This is quite a boring purchase but a good staple for summer and it really has a nice neckline

H&M - £14.99
These shorts are part of the new eco friendly line. They have the brocade pattern on them so just makes them a little more interesting then just plain white shorts.

H&M - £6.99
As you know I do love a bangle but all these little bangles are all connected so it keeps them all together

Vibe - £24.99
I finally done it I bought a jumpsuit. Decided to ease in gently with a black one and this has a nice ruffle front which looks really cute with a thick belt round the middle.

Lipsy - £35
I loveeeeeeeeee this top, looks really cute with a bright bandeau underneath as the arm holes are low.

River Island - £26.99
Even though I loved everything that I bought this was my favourite purchase out of everything I bought. I have had real problems finding nice going out tops that are not to floaty so this one being nude with a detachable brooch on the shoulder is prefect (see FoxyLocks review to see me wearing it).

River Island - £20
My friend bought these and did not like them on. I tried them and loved them. They look so cute worn casual with gold flipflops and white vest top or dressed up with wedges and a nude blouse.

Select - £12
I really like maxi dresses but as I am so short I struggled to find them to fit me. I just wanted something plain to wear with a denim jacket with lots of gold bangles and gold flipflops and this did a job and was a bargain at £12.

and that was it for my gigantic haul. I hope you liked this and would love to see any new purchases you have so I can copy them hehe.

FoxyLocks review

Hi ladies

My hair is mega fine and has always been the bane of my life. I have had bonded extensions for about 2 years now and recently had to have them out for a few months to give my hair a break. 

I was really happy when they came out as my hair is in great condition but on the negative side I really miss the thickness and length and never felt nice when I went out as I love having tons of hair. So after seeing lots of reviews and YouTube videos from the lovely Imogen at FoxyLocks I decided to take the plunge purchased my set of FoxyLocks. 

Before purchasing I emailed Imogen and she advised me to order the 120grams in Honey Blonde #22 colour. As my hair is so fine it is was best for me to order the pack with less hair as they also come in 160grams packs for people with thick hair.

20" 10 piece set (Full head):
Two x 8" wide with 4 clips
Two x 6" wide with 3 clips
Two x 4" wide with 2 clips
Four x 2" wide with 1 clip

So here are some pics, sorry they are not proper before and after shots as the afters were taken on a night out...

Now this is the day my bonded extensions got taken out (hence the sad face hehe) but you can see the length and how fine my hair actually is, and yes hard to believe but this my natural hair in it's best condition because I do have rubbish hair :o(:

The clipins arrive straight but I curled them with my Yogi wand as you can use heated appliances on them which is fantastic.

My friend put this in for me as to be honest I struggle with the back as I am not good with things like that. There was so much hair that I did not use the whole pack and had about 3 pieces left.

I had clipins when I got married and in comparison these are honestly amazing. The clips were so strong and at no point did I think they would come out which embarrassingly has happened to me in the past in a pub (long story)! The hair feels so soft and silky and I was surprised at how well the curl lasted.

I showed my hairdresser these clipins and she said she had never seen ones that were such good quality and believe me she has used alot of clipins. She is even going to order them for her upcoming wedding.

So if you fancy a mini makeover with long luscious locks check out FoxyLocks at:

Also check out Imogen's videos the owner of FoxyLocks. She has amazing tutorials and hairstyles for you to copy:

Imogen was so lovely and helpful with any questions that I had and advised me on the correct colour by just me sending her a photo and I was shocked at how spot it was.

Every part of the service was fantastic from delivery to the packaging and of course the product.

So as you can see I am super impressed with these and they are perfect for adding a bit of glam for nights out or a nice long sophisticated look for the day.

April-May Haul Part 2 of 3

Evening ladies

Well as promised this is the next part of my stupidly large HAUL!!!

No clothes this time ladies just skincare/cosmetics and accessories. So without further ado here we go...

Whilst shopping I toddled off to the Chanel counter to get my free bracelet which came free with LOOK magazine. I thought they would all be gone so I was super happy that they still had them. Whilst picking this up I spoke to the lady on the Chanel counter about foundation as I am nearly out my MAC one so wanted to look around for something new. She was really nice and gave me a sample of the Le Teint foundation and sample of the new Chanel Chance (the green one sorry not got the name to hand). I have to say I loved the perfume and think I may purchase this at some point as it was lovely and fresh. Sadly did not feel the same about the foundation as I am a full coverage gal but this just did not do it for me as it felt more like a tinted moisturiser to me. Very pleased that I got to try this before I parted with £30ish... though.

Benefit b.right skincare - £10
I am not going to talk about this now as I am going to do a full review but all I will say for now is BARGAIN and BUY IT lol....

Ebay - £15 for both I think
I can't imagine for the price that these are real Betsey Johnson pieces but they are super cute and I have worn them loads. If you want the ebay seller please let me know 

Ebay - £6.99 I think
This is from the same seller as above. This is very similar to Nicole Ritchie's House of Harlow range but again, think it is a cheeky snide but definitely worth the money

Wallis - £10
I am currently on a mission to find some huge gold beads which are similar to the ones Rachel Zoe wears and these are closest ones I have found. If you know of any please let me know

I am sorry I can't remember how much this was but I love it. I really wanted a nice turquoise and gold ring and am very pleased with this one

River Island - £12 I think
I am on a bangle fad if you had not noticed (see below lol). I really love these and they are perfect for summer

H&M - £5.99 I think (sorry I am pants)
Again love these and thought they were a nice selection for the money. Nice to mix and match with the others I have got 

???? - £6 
Sorry this was a random costume jewellery shop in Bluewater which I can't remember the name of. Again a great selection of bangles for the money

H&M - £5.99
Thought these were wayyy cute for the summer. I love all the pretty ice cream colours and plus they are not noisy like all the others hehe

So there you have it, the second part of my haul.

Hope you likey

Have you tried Accessorize nail polishes??????

Hey ladies

Well I have been so naughty lately and been shopping and bought so much lately so got tons to show you. So I thought what better post to kick off my hauls with, than with a nail polish review.

I had never tried the Accessorize range before and seen them in their stores. Whilst at Bluewater I discovered a HUGE range in Superdrug. I purchased 3 of them and all of which are duo chrome shimmer/glittery style. They kind of remind me of a limited edition car paint and I have to say they are fantastic....

I need to apologise for the swatches as my nails were still wet as I was so excited as I wanted to try them on and show you. So without further ado here they are...

With flash

Without flash

Mermaid - this is a fantastic bluey/green colour and just so pretty. I did not have anything even remotely similar in my collection. Currently wearing this on my tootsies

Pink Spice - again I don't think I have anything similar to this. The picture above with the flash shows a far better representation, but it is just so pretty

Aztec - I do actually have something similar to this one, the MAC Mean & Green. Again lovely colour (sorry the swatch is so blurry) and far cheaper - Bonus!

A little tip is put a similar solid colour underneath and then you only need to use one coat as you would probably need about 3 coats to build a true colour to match the bottle. I also tried different colours underneath which gave different effects so lots to play with :o)

I feel like I have a new love of polishes with this range and they are such a bargain at £4 each regardless of the type. They range from creams, glitters, these special effects polishes, etc, etc. There are so many to choose from you will be totally spoilt for choice.

You will be seeing lots more of these polishes on this blog as they are the nicest range I have tried in a long time.

Check out their site for an idea of some of the colours along with some of their other cosmetics. They do have a much larger selection in Superdrug which will totally confuse you as their is so much choice you will want it all hehe

April-May Haul Part 1 of 3

Hey ladies...

As I mentioned on twitter I have done lots of shopping lately, way more than I should do so I have a MASSIVE haul to show you. So much so I need to do this in 3 posts!!! (slight embarrassed)!!! My excuse "I am a summer baby and have had a few days off work so I went shopping lol".

So without further ado this is the first part....

ASOS - £12
This little French Connection top was in the sale - we like sales lol

ASOS - £25 I think
Love the back of this top as it goes up and the material is kind of silkish

ASOS - £30ish I think
This is the back of the top, it has like a bustle effect and very swishy floaty material

Matalan - £18
This is actually a playsuit even though it looks like a dress

H&M - £24.99
I loveee this jacked. I am such a blazer person and this one is really thin material which is perfect for summer

H&M - £14.99
This this is well expensive for H&M but it has a beaded detail on the back (this is the back) and hangs really nicely so think it is a staple that will be worn to death

H&M - £14.99
Love the sleeves on this chiffon style blouse as they are kind of a batwing. Def nice with jeans and a nude heel

H&M - Top and bottoms £3.99 each
Like the fact that you can get different sizes for top and bottoms and the top is sized by cup so even better

Primark - £3 each
Love wearing these under low arm tops so you don't see a boring bra

Primark - £8 I think
I have been wearing this for work as my work wardrobe is so drab. I have put a little vest top underneath though as it is chiffon and I don't think showing my bra off to my work colleagues is probably very appropriate lol

So there you have the first part of my haul. I will post the second part soon (hopefully tomorrow)

Hope you likey :o)
