Christmas Time Mistletoe and Wine...

Hello everyone,

I am feeling super festive today and I thought I would share a few snaps with you all. I have been really unwell this last week so I am finally feeling a bit better we put the tree up and did some nice festive decorating also finishing the last of our Christmas shopping.

Upon writing that title I realised that this post contains NO mistletoe or wine, oh well.

Christmassy nails from my Ciate Advent Calendar.

I hope when I get my new camera you will be able to see my pictutres better. These do not do justice how "sparkly" my nails are right now lol.

Angelina Jolie Style Diamond Earrings For Under £2

Good day beautiful people, 

I had to share with you all my latest find on Ebay......................

Angelina Jolie Style Earrings for like £1.37 , yes you read it right £1.37 ... I am literally in love with these earrings. I find that I don't spend a lot of current trending jewellery because I only wear it a few times but when it's this price you just really don't mind. 

Angelina is just stunning I love her style and of course I love Brad hehe.

The Glamour Beauty Party Box ; Review December 2014

Good afternoon everyone, 

So I thought tonight I would share with you the best £16.99 I have spent recently. I got an email from Latest In Beauty an amazing website I came across a few months ago with the release of the new box “The Glamour Party Beauty Edition”. 

Now if you don’t know about this company they basically combine designer beauty samples together for an amazing price, you can try the products without committing a lot of money with the possibility of not liking the product. The boxes are definitely worth the money , the last box I got I received  a full size Bourjois mascara worth £9.99 and I only paid £16.99 for the total box so you definitely get value for your money.

One Of Those Sundays.......

Hello beauts,

Hope your all having a good Sunday. 

I went for a nice walk today it was.... FRESH.. took a few snaps. Had a lovely chill day , went to mama's for Sunday lunch saw my niece basically just what the doctor ordered. Now I am going to chill watching naff films and eat my weight in whatever goodies I can find in the cupboard. :) 

Tried out my new Sally Hansen Lip Gloss and have to say it is remarkable and lasted a good few hours. Nice cute pinky with a little glitter. We all need glitter in our lives. <3

The sun stealing the selfie hehe. 

How cute??? I want a farm.

Sister selfie time. <3

My cat telling me everything is going to be alright hehe. 

New polish I got (all details will feature in Blog post this week) Purple Lola polish on bottom and the new Bourjois Polish on top. Although it took ages to dry the after effect is soooo CHRISTMASSSSYYYY. It looks like little pieces on tinsel hehe. <3 

Have a lovely night.

Real Life... Sucks...

Hello beautiful people,

Today I thought I would do a week update even though the week isn't over eeeeeeeeeeeeee. This week has been a tough week for me, real life getting in the way of my fantasy land and it’s pretty much not fair. MEH.. I mean why can’t life just go right for once?

Stress at home , stressful relationships , stress with family. This Christmas will not be the same this year, 3 special people won’t be around to celebrate it with me and that really does suck.

My anxiety is getting worse each week I notice myself avoiding situations that I was at some time in my life comfortable with, maybe it’s time to bite the bullet? I didn’t realise how much I bury my head in the sand I always classed myself as a person that dealt with situations head on but either I have changed over the years or I’m not that type of person after all? Who knows?

I am sick and tired of comparing myself to others, fair enough other people might do the same but that doesn’t make it okay. I find myself most days feeling sorry for my self asking my self “I work so hard why does that not happen to me?”. I am always wishing for someone else’s life, which makes me wonder “are we ever happy with what we have?” “will it ever be enough?”. People may look at me and think that I have a lot to be thankful for and that may be true but I just feel like my life isn’t where I want it to be.

I mean at the tender age of 27 I envisioned my life to be a lot different than it is now. House (bought) , children , married and a great job…. Here I am renting a house, no children, not married and yes I have a job but it isn't something I enjoy anymore.. I thought running my own business would be amazing but guess what it’s not it’s actually harder than working for some awful boss that is always on your case and nothing you do is ever good enough.

As for children well… we have been trying for the last two years and I guess it’s just not meant to be, my partner has a child with someone else so yeah that makes me feel AMAZING… NOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT .. Christmas in my eyes is all about children, he has the excitement of buying stuff for his daughter whilst I’m sitting wishing I had my own to fuss around over.. I know I am being selfish but I think sometimes in life you can’t help the way you feel about certain situations.

Business is always tough around this time of the year so I guess Christmas is a bitter sweet time for me, everyone kind of gets out of town and goes shopping further afield and us local businesses just kind of have to accept the dregs. But that doesn’t stop me from getting down in the dumps about it but it literally is like this from now until New Year.

Jesus I have just realised how bad my spelling is whilst writing this hah.

Anyway I am ending this post on a positive note :

Apart from this week been one of those awfully down depressing weeks I did manage to land myself a “Ciate Advent Calendar” even though it’s like 4 days late I found it in TKMax for like £25, words cannot describe how happy I am about this? J

So I have posted a few pics of the last 4 nail polishes I got last night hehe now I can be excited every morning.

I hope ya’ll having a better time than me. Marie xox

Eylure London Individual Eyelash Review - MY FIRST TIME..

Hello beautiful people,

I hope you are all doing well and are getting into the Christmas spirit because I know I am hehe.

As everyone that follows me knows I am rubbish at the false eye lashes thing so when I was in Superdrug I saw some of the individual lashes in the sale and thought to myself “now there’s something I haven’t tried”. I always have trouble lining up the false lashes along my eye line so I thought I would give these bad boys a go . hah.

Now they are far from perfect on my eyes but I can say I managed these a lot better than I do with the false lashes so I was impressed with myself so there. Anyhoo I thought I would share with you my results…..( I apologise for the quality of picture but Santa is bringing me a camera if I am good.) 

I should also say I laughed so much taking these photos of myself, I really am not used to it so I hope you understand hah . 

Please don't judge my ghost like appearance lol . 

And this was my final face after the amount of selfies I had to produce for this post hehe. 

Eylure London Pro-Lash Individuals Fine to Full. 

So if you haven't guess already I really loved this product, simple and easy for people like me that don't have a clue what you are doing. The lashes came in different sizes and thickness I used only the fine ones because my lashes are thin and short. As you can see by the pictures they have made my eye lashes look fuller and longer so basically why would I not love this? 

Comes with glue and eye lash remover. I think I paid around £3.50 but in Superdrug they are normally around the £5 or £6 mark. 

So I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed the selfies hehe no seriously can not wait to get my camera.
