Little life update :)

Hello my loves i hope that you are all well πŸ™‚ i bombarded you all throughout my October Half term and now I’ve gone very quiet on the Blog post front but honestly it’s only because I’ve been so BUSY!! So I thought I would do a little ramble chatty update information sharing type post πŸ™‚

So first of all I hope you all had a lovely Halloween&Bonfire night if you celebrate these or did anything for them that is πŸ™‚ I didn’t do anything for halloween we dressed up at work and bonfire night we had to stay in to watch over Molly as she isn’t keen on fireworks she hid as soon as they started going off so we went into the walkway near our house and watched the huge fireworks display that is put on at our local arena and saved ourselves hassle and money that way haha!!

As far as my October plans and goals go…I sadly didn’t go to watch Goodbye Christopher Robin as I was poorly 😦 I have created a workout routine that I am sticking too if that’s something you would like me to share with you guys in a separate blog post let me know and i will happily sort that out πŸ™‚ I also wanted to read 1 book a week…..I am in a complete reading slump at the moment I haven’t found any books to really sink my teeth into so if you have any book suggestions please PLEASE leave them down below!! I also wanted to try a pumpkin spice latte and i can confirm i did indeed try a pumpkin spice latte….it was ok nothing to rave about and i don’t think that i will particularly miss it or be craving it but it was nicer than i expected.

Life update work and life are pretty much the same lots going on lots to do I am completely shattered but that’s nothing new! I have however been brought a present that is going to make blogging SO much easier!! to go alongside my new camera Darren brought me a laptop!! I am so excited and currently I am laying in bed writing up this blog post on it πŸ˜€ so yes very VERY excited about it πŸ™‚

Upcoming blog posts

I have a few products to review some that have been sent to me for a review and some that I have brought myself

I am also visiting Disneyland next weekend so there will be a Disneyland post….maybe even a vlog!!

I am also toying with the idea of doing blogmas again I loved it last year im just trying to get some inspiration for different posts this year, if I don’t do blogmas i do have a lot of fun blog posts planned for December anyways πŸ™‚

So that’s all I have to tell you guys I will see you all very soon πŸ™‚

DIY Halloween Part 6: A journey back in time

The looks today are again if you don’t want to be scary or if your going to a themed Halloween party πŸ™‚ I’ve created a look for the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s 

60-s Think beehive bouffant hair, paisley print, knee high socks and platform boots.

70-s flowing locks, huge sunglasses,wide leg trousers and gilets

80-s The mom/mum Jean truly came into its own in the 80s! Pair it with a hideous print shirt tied up and some clumpy trainers! Or go full on shell suit and crimped hair!

90-s chockers,space buns and pinafore dresses with stacked platforms are typical 90’s for me…take your inspiration from the spice girls they were my fashion icons!! X

Everyone hail to the pumpkin king πŸŽƒ

Hello Happy Friday πŸ™‚ today I’m sharing with you my pumpkin carving adventure πŸ™‚ 

Preparation

I layed my pumpkin out on a bin bag, drew my rough design onto my pumpkin and collected my tools -2 knives and a spoon.

After cutting out the top it’s time to get VERY messy!! Use the spoon (or your hands) to scoop out all the seeds and pulp from the inside of the Pumpkin.

Now I didn’t take pictures for this story….I take pumpkin carving very seriously so I was in the zone!! Use the knives to cut out your design very carefully, if you don’t trust yourself with knives you can actually buy pumpkin carving tools at the supermarket πŸ™‚

Annnnnd………

Ta-Da!! Happy Halloween πŸŽƒπŸŽƒπŸŽƒπŸŽƒxx

DIY Halloween Part 3 Mythical creatures.

Mermaid

I loved creating this look!! To create this look I used a turquoise eye shadow over my eyes then dusted some sparkly purple eyeshadow in the inner corners of my eyes and lower lashline. I then put some fishnet tights over my head…..bear with…and used the turquoise and purple as a contour applying it over the fishnets this creates the scale look. Then use a shed load of highlighter there’s no such thing as too much for this look!! I then used a nude lipstick and added some purple and turquoise on top to create the lip gradient look πŸ™‚ x

Fairy

This is a nice easy one for if you don’t want to do a spooky scary look! You could add ALOT more glitter and some wings to finish off this look but I’m trying this week to create looks with items and clothes I already own got to keep it budget friendly!! I just did milkmaid braids in my hair added a floral headband and chucked alot of highlight on my face! X
