Everyone has their favourite things in life. For me, this extends beyond beauty products (believe it or not). Sometimes it is nice to have other things to get excited about, it doesn’t matter if they are old or new. This month we talk shampoo, tea, and snacks.
When it comes to changing your life it can seem like hard work, and looks like it can cost a lot of money. It’s not surprising that a lot of people who want to change feel like they can’t because they are constantly fed images of perfection. But improving who you are is not about perfection, it’s progression. Improving you does not happen over-night, it can take years but that is the fun of it. Even if you are broke, down on your luck, and feel like the worst person on the planet who can’t improve, there is a way. I have found a way to change your life, one step at a time, that will only cost you a pound a week for the next year. This will get you on the right track to self-improvement. That’s right. So even if you are flat broke and think that you don’t have the funds to change a little bit every week, then read on. This week it is beauty on a budget.
In a bid to discover some new stuff for my husband, I ordered him a Birch Box. Not that there is anything wrong with his routine but it’s nice to try new products from time to time. And he is always happy to be my guinea pig and get pampered. What man doesn’t like a woman looking after him? Actually don’t answer that.
Those of you who know me, know that I got married a couple of months ago (eek!). One of the most stressful things about the wedding day is making sure that you look good. No-one wants to be the bride that looks like she has been dragged through a hedge backwards with eyes that look like pissholes in the snow. Say what you will about me being shallow, but I don’t want to go looking back on my wedding snaps and feeling awful because I wasn’t the glowing picture of health and love on my big day. So I turned to the Benefit Bridal boxes from Birch Box.
These days you can’t swing a cat by the tail without someone being in your face about animal cruelty. But that isn’t what this post is about. This is about swinging a cat by the tail (metaphorically) when it comes to talking about weight loss and the stuff that is available. This post tackles Forever Living, the aloe diet, which has been tried and tested by me.
When it comes to beauty stuff, sometimes I find some of the most random things. And if you ever saw what was in my bathroom you would be wondering what half of the crap in there actually does to my skin or hair. I have picked some of the more random products that I’ve been using recently and presented them to you for you amusement. Some of these things are products you probably wouldn’t look twice at, or they are products that just seem to random and have no purpose in your bathroom.
We were having a chat in the meeting the other day when I felt the need to apologise for not wearing any makeup. I don’t know why. Maybe it was to do with image. I am the beauty gal after all and I really should be groomed to perfection every day, shouldn’t I? Even if you feel the need to forget the makeup for a day, you can still look good and feel great.
We all love superhero movies right? I mean, you clicked on this post, so I can only assume that’s true, unless you actually hate superhero movies and are only clicking on this to leave an angry comment about it, in which case, suck it up buttercup!
Amongst multimedia trends, Superhero movies are pretty unique because they aren’t restricted by the same genre limitations as westerns or horror movies. While The Avengers, The Dark Knight and Kick Ass are all technically part of the same “genre” you’d be hard pressed to point out that many similarities beyond the fact that they are all wearing garish outfits and punching each other.
This weeks beauty picks has been one of our favorites. This week I got our digits on some lovely natural products to help make the beginning of your summer a fabulous one!
As always, I have forked out my own cold cash to test out these products, so if I’m not happy you will know about it. Also I have provided links to places where you can buy these products. If you choose to click and buy through us, you will help fund my addiction to cheap coffee and shoes.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. These are two quotes that tend to get thrown about when I talk about what I do. Another one is that women wear makeup for the benefit of men. To counter that argument I’d like to use a quote from another beauty blogger, “I don’t own 50 Mac lipsticks to impress a man that can’t tell the difference between Shy Girl and Teddy”. Why am I ranting at the beginning of a beauty post? Because if you choose to use any of the beauty products that I talk about, it should be because they make you feel beautiful.
