Start each day with a grateful heart

First off I want to apologies for the week without a single post, I've had to deal with some sad and personal news.

I don't want this to be to much information I wanted to keep my blog fun, so I won't go into too much details.

Its not easy losing anyone you know, and when it's family that again and again you didn't take the opportunity to spend time with you feel overcome with regret.

Remember this* post where I wrote about my  new years resolutions and one of those was to spend more time with family and another was to stop stressing and it seems like in the first four weeks of 2014 I've failed.

Not only  that I found out that my nanny passed away but the very same day I had a really positive interview with an employer that went so dam well and I walked away feeling really confident about the outcome, but later that day my dad came home to tell us the bad news.

So I won't be posting again this week but will carry on the next which will be February.
I don't like funerals very much as I'm sure not many people do.

Start each day with a grateful heart <3

See you in a weeks time
Thanks for reading

Beauty haul #When you go out for a few bits, end up buying a whole bag full?

Here we are again doing a haul this time only beauty products, a bit different from last time here where I did a random bunch of stuff. :)

As you can tell by the title of this haul, I only went into boots for one or two things and ended up with a few more. In my defence I have been saving up points on my boots card so decided to just go for it. I only went boots luckily as I was in a buy what you like mood, which is not good for the bank account!

 Admittedly the bag is not that big, also I don't know why I decided to take a picture of the bag but hay. :)

This is what I originally went in boots for, just general essentials like shower gel and tooth paste, I then remembered other bits I needed to grab. I find that I stick to a product that I like for months on end then find a product that I want to try out, don't know if that's a good or bad thing? The Herbal essences I have only really just discovered and I love what its doing to my hair, and recently I brought the beautiful ends conditioner and yeah it does leave my dry ends feeling good about themselves.
Products: Imperial leather Limited editions Bewitching shower cream, Oral-B pro-expert Whitening tooth paste, Herbal Essences Beautiful ends conditioner, Oral-B tooth brush, Femfresh Intimate hygiene Freshness wipes and 4 pack Quattro replacement blades.

Boots own product? Nothing wrong with that right? basically I'm a hairy persons and my shadow is getting really bad because I left it far too long! For those of you who may not know what shadow is its just lady moustache. I was using veet before but couldn't find it in boots or the Superdrugs store so this will do. :)
Soap&Glory heel Genius Foot cream. This is actually my second bottle I love it so much, you apply it before bed and wear a pair of cotton socks and in the morning your feet a) smells so good and b) feels amazing like you've just stepped out of a spa.
Now these are products I'm excited to use! 

Loreal Paris Gentle eye make-up remover, now if you remember one of my first blog posts, you will remember that I don't wear make-up very often and when I do its usually because I'm going out for the night ( you can read it here The make-up world ) with this I'm not wearing the eye make-up for a long period of time and getting it off is always a struggle and most often I just use facial wipes. I used my mums Clarins Instant Eye Make-Up Remover as I heard and saw all the good reviews it had and obviously knew how much it was, but also heard that the Loreal make-up remover was a "dupe" for it, So I'm going to try it and make a commitment to wear some eye make-up even if its just to go out shopping.
And finally the last product today is the nails inc. London nail buffer. I was quite surprised to see nails inc. London products in boots, I didn't really think it was a well known brand and as you can see the only label on the packaging was the back and on the actual buffer its self  (If you didn't know the brand or how big it is you wouldn't look twice). I actually don't own a lot of nails inc. products, two to be precise this and a nail polish I got free with glamour mag. I would love to be able to afford to buy all there nail polishes but I can't see that happening. So I can't wait to use this next time I do my nails. :) Maybe I'll do a review?


That's all guys do feel free to ask any questions.

Thank you for reading. <3

According to Plan.

This was supposed to be an outfit post, but when I went out yesterday to take pictures I forgot one vital thing.......spear batteries.

So this is going to replace it.

My nails have been looking and feeling miserable lately due to the cold weather coming in. so I've decided its time to not so much start again with them just cut them back to fresh and happier nails. I'm going to do this with my favorite nail aid/nail strengthener O.P.I's Nail Envy. (This is not a product review just how I look after my nails.)

 As you can see I seem to bite only one nail?!  My nails are getting a bit to long and weak at the ends. I'm just going to cut them all back to one length, then remove all the ridges.

Now I'm going to use PALMER'S Cocoa butter formula, which I'm sure most of you are familiar with, just to give them back some moisture and make my hands feel soft. 

Now I apply a generous coat of the nail envy and wait until its dry and then another coat every week as stated on the bottle.

I've used this before as you can see by the bottle, last year in the summer a couple of weeks before I went on holiday and I was also taking hair,nail and skin supplements. My nails were like rocks for once in my life. Yes I really love using this it leaves my nails feeling like I actually have nails.

whats your daily nail care routine?

Get back on track.

Why does motivation always come at a awkward time for me?

Seriously, laying in bed at 2 am is not the right time to be sorting all the stuff I want to put away in boxes. What is wrong with me!? Obviously I wasn't doing that but I wanted to and that's quite annoying.

What made you want to? I hear you ask?

I was watching @hayclaire/Claire Marshall's YouTube channel (love her by the way, go check her out if you haven't already.) All the videos I needed to catch up on, and I was thinking dam her new apartment looks so clutter less if that's a word, or clutter free if you like. Thinking about it a lot of YouTubers I watch have such clutter free backgrounds. Is that a YouTuber thing?    
Then I was looking around my room and thinking wtf? Why do I still have that? Why have I still got all this childishness in my room? I could really do with boxing or throwing away some of this stuff. And like I'm laying there wanting to get up and tidy my room at 2 in flipping morning!? But if it was any other time of the day, I would say "oh stuf doing that, do it another time when I can be bothered!" *sigh* I need to get out of the habit of putting things off all the time.

So I've set myself a goal or a few.
> keep less things/throw things away as soon as I no longer need them.
> STOP putting things off/DO them! 
> buy less junk? Yeah I think that will be one, I buy things I always end up not wanting in the end.  
> And lastly spend time using the things I already have!  ;)

Sorry this turned into a bit of a ramble. :) ♡
