November Favorites

November is almost over and that can only mean one thing. I now get to share with you all the products and things that I have been loving in the Month of November!

All of these things are what I've used the most throughout this month, so I thought if I've come to love these items I'm sure some of you might find one or two things that you would want to try out for yourselves. I hope that some of you may share the same love for them as I do.

Autumn/Winter Essentials for on the Go

Hello Everyone, I know I have been absent for a while now but I'm back with this new post. It's all about those Winter Essentials for on the go. 

So as most of you know its hard to keep up with your skin care and general routine in the A/W months. Generally I would just love to forget about me and just curl up on the sofa and watch some festive movies but at some point you just have to get up and put yourself back together and ready for the world again. 

One way to keep you going is to keep your a/w essentials in your bag for on the go. So most of you might be thinking what sort of essentials do I take with me on a daily basis, right? 

I thought long and hard about it and I came up with my top 7 products/items of choice to take along with you anywhere. It could be anything from work to just a walk around town, so without further a do here is my top 7 products/Items:

1. Rimmel London - 9 in 1 bb cream; (Perfect for hydrating your skin)

2. Nivea Soft cream - Typical Nivea scent of which I love - Suitable for your face,body and hands.

3. Gosh Lipstick in the Shade 159 - Although its a lipstick it is super moisturizing for the lips perfect for hydrating those lips.

4. New Look Lipstick in the Shade Candy Pink - Also super moisturizing for a typical lipstick.

5. Beauty Blender 
6. Zara Tie Scarf in Burgundy 
7. Umbrella - Black from Primark 
These Items I just listed above are my most used Items at the moment, and I wouldn't go anywhere without them. I do have a lot more that I take around with me but if I where to list them all we would be here all day! haha
So I came up with a What's in my Bag video for you guys! Bare with me on this one because I am not used to talking in front of a camera! It's the best that I could do for now, and I am planning on getting better at it. So if any of you guys would like to leave some feedback on if it was good or if there is anything I can improve on, which I am sure I have a lot to work on, please let me know. I plan to put up videos every Thursday around 7pm. Enjoy!

Halloween II

So it's about time I posted something new and what better to continue with my Halloween series. Today's post is all about preparing a feast of snacks for a Halloween night in to watch Horror/Halloween movies or Halloween Party Snacks.

I found that initially it was quite hard to gather some ideas for Halloween so I decided to go to my local Marks & Spencer and see what I could find that would help with my selection of snacks. I found some macarons in autumnal colors and thought it would do well as a Halloween snack! and plus it's always a great excuse to buy some.

Hello Fashion Magazine - H&M  Jewelry Box - Watch - M&S Macarons

 I actually stumbled across a Halloween section whilst I was at M&S and found these pumpkin and eyeball chocolates which I thought was quite festive for a Halloween night in.

 I also thought about a drink that would resemble Halloween and look quite nice as a part of the general decor among st all the snacks. What better than an orange and carrot juice!!

After taking a break to look at the latest trends for some inspiration on some future posts I got right back into thinking about some more Halloween treats! Some that can be quick and easy to set up and do.

One quick and easy thing to make are Fairy Cakes, I used the Mary Berry's iced fairy cake recipe that you can easily find by searching on google. I decided to alter the recipe a little by adding some vanilla extract into the mix and use vanilla icing. It takes up to 15 minutes to make and doesn't take up much time, but once your guests see them they will think it took a great amount of effort. The cupcake cases and crosses came together in a box from the Pound shop but I'm sure you can find something just as great wherever you are and create spooky cupcakes with any type of cupcake case and design.

For the drinks you can easily personalize them with some funky straws. In my case I couldn't find any so I chose to use two straws with some Halloween like colors.

Lastly but not least just grab yourself a Trick or Treat bucket and purchase all of your favorite sweets!!

I particularly enjoy these strawberry straw-like sweets because you can put them in a bucket like so and pretend they are worms or something.

All that's left is to enjoy your evening among st all of your Halloween treats and Decorations. I hope you enjoyed this post.

Fairy Lights - Primark

Enjoy your Halloween Night!

Fitness Session

Are you struggling to get into the spirit of going to the gym now that Autumn is here? To be honest it's always daunting to take that first step into actually getting ready to work out, but once that workout is over you feel amazing! You kind of feel invincible and like you've accomplished something, which you have. So I thought I would share with you guys my gym essentials and ways to get yourself active.

Exercising Daily  is doubly important in the colder months. People tend to put on weight this time of year because they are eating more comforting foods and lets be honest we would rather snuggle up on a sofa then stick to our exercise routines.

So for me, I prefer to stay and workout at home, I find it more comfortable in the Autumn/Winter months to stay in and use my App or Workout DVD. But, if I were to go to a gym I would use all of these gym essentials:

1. Nourishing Body Lotion - This intensive body lotion nourishes and conditions the skin, leaving behind a delicate fragrance. Perfect for an after gym session - Grace Cole - Flowers wild rose jasmine geranium.

2. I know that it's not good to wear make up to the gym but if it were me I couldn't go completely without make up so I would use my Rimmel London BB Cream 9 in 1 skin perfecting super make up - SPF 20 in Light just to make me feel a little more put together for the gym.

3. I would just use a lip liner and softly line this MUA intense colour liner in a soft pink to my lips.

4. I always like to look presentable when leaving the house for a gym session so painted nails is a must! I love this Orly Colour Blast in the shade Cherry Cream perfect color to "Work it"

5. Most importantly this limited edition Simple - Kind to skin cleansing Facial Wipes designed by Holly Fulton, exclusive to Superdrug. They're perfect for prepping my skin before applying make up. But also great for removing make up after my workouts!

 Some more essentials I would use for before and after my workouts would be the Nivea Soft Face and Hand Cream; The Body Shop Passion Fruit Body Butter (smells amazing!) and obviously some antiperspirant the one I use is the Sure Women Ultra Dry.

One of the things that I do when I am feeling unmotivated is to look up motivational quotes on social media things like: " I'm tired; It's Too Cold; It's too Hot; It's Raining; I don't have time LET'S GO!"
or "I'm Doing this for me". Also another thing that helps me when I'm just not feeling it is to update my playlist - New tunes can be a great way to get our butts of that sofa and getting our workout on!

Another thing that really helps me stay on top of my fitness routine is to have designated days for my workouts. So, lets say on Mondays I do cardio full body exercise. I would then change it up on the Wednesday to toning up my abs, it always works for me and not only does it work for you it works for your body as well. Lastly, it's always good to have a workout buddy, someone who won't let you give up as easily or someone that you can both bounce off of one another, like in my case me and my sister help each other stay strong and "Just Do It".

So that was my Fitness Session / Advice for you guys I hoped you Enjoyed this post and I will be back with a Brand new post later on this week.
