Skinny Mint Detox Tea

I’m sure the money I have spent on diet products I could have just had all the fat sucked out by now!!

But here I am trying another new product!

I have been intrigued as to whether a ‘tea’ can actually help you lose weight, after all its just a few herbal bits thrown in a mesh bag and dunked in hot water right?

This does come with some vague instructions on some diet changes, cut out processed food, sugar, and try and swap all white versions to brown (rice, bread etc) so that’s some fairly basic advise!
There is also a small 30 day exercise plan, with nothing too strenuous on so we will see how that goes!

There are 2 bags of tea for this detox – a morning boost with natural caffeine and a night time ‘cleanse’ (laxative I’d imagine!) and you have one of each everyday for 28 days.

Today I did my not very glamorous ‘before’ photos and weighing in at 173lbs – Wish me luck!

MAC false lashes extreme mascara

MAC false lashes extreme black – Buy here

Mac recently had these free samples available so I thought it would be rude not to give it a go! 

With my history with cosmetics companies I love a good mascara and to be honest its one of the few items of make up I will wear regulary and as I have good lashes to begin with sometimes I struggle for ones that actual make a clear difference 

So here is my naked face 

Here is one coat on one eye…

A couple more coats

And then on both eyes🙂

Overall I wasn’t overly impressed with this mascara although you could see the difference I have tried cheaper ones that have had a much more dramatic effect! I did love the wand though it made it much easier to apply

Am I rich yet?

I love this post.. I see it all the time worded in slightly different ways but always with the same meaning!!

If you don’t want to put the work in, don’t expect to get anything out of it

“”I bought the kit, posted my link on Facebook.”
Am I rich yet?

“I haven’t done the trainings because I don’t have time for that ya know. But can you enter the orders for me? Let me know when I get rich.”
Am I rich yet?

“I scheduled my launch party, but I cancelled it because no one will show up anyways. I mean I’ve asked people to help me by ordering on FB and they haven’t. So they won’t show up to my party.”
Am I rich yet?

“I can’t get any bookings!!! I’m so bad at this, why isn’t it working?! I’ve asked everyone I know!!! Well, I’ve asked 2 of my friends but I know the rest will say no too!”
Am I rich yet?

Training call tonight? Same night as the Voice? Yea, sorry I can’t make it. This is MY show, know what I mean?
Am I rich yet?

“Are you crazy asking me to SPEND MONEY on trainings?? This is supposed to be making me money, I’m not investing anything else! I mean, I bought the KIT!”
Am I rich yet?

“Sorry, I gotta go! I’m reading 50 shades of Grey before the movie comes out! Oh that book you recommended? I don’t read “self help” books, they are SO BORING!”
Am I rich yet?

If buying the kit made us instantly rich, don’t you think everyone would be doing it? You’re given tools and trainings to make your business successful. I can give you seeds, gloves, shovel, and everything else you need to have a beautiful garden. But if you don’t plant it, water it, tend to it, it’ll never grow. Your business is the same way.

Get off your butt and get to work! You want to make money? Then do it! Quit expecting someone else to do it for you! It’s not your upline’s or your coach’s responsibility to work your business, it’s YOURS! Yes, they offer you the tools, but you’ve got to be willing to put the gloves on, pick up the shovel and get to digging!

You want to learn how to grow your business? Do some trainings! You should be growing your mind everyday! How can you expect your business to grow when you’re holding steadfast to your
excuses and couch?


Nobody cares about your excuses or wants to hear your whining.
You have the tools, either use them or don’t. It’s your choice. What are you choosing today?

I’m so excited to come across another subscription box! I am so rubbish at buying new products that it is a great way for me to find new favourites!

This one also offers a pay monthly option even if you choose to commit to 12 months which is much better on the pocket!

My subscription is in and I can’t wait to see whats in my first box!

Percy & Reed reassuringly firm hold Hairspray

I didn’t get to test this for very long as I had it confiscated at vfestival 😂 whoops teach me not to read the items not allowed (aerosols!) But nevermind

Luckily my friend had used it to set her hair, make up and face glitter before the burley security guard took it off me and it kept it all in place for the day! 

So it seems like a good product and the smell wasn’t as offensive as some sprays I’ve used before so that’s a winner for me! 


Matte Liquid Lipstick – Get the look for less!

I have seen lots of talk about how Matte Liquids Lipsticks are now the ‘in thing’ so after a good mooch around Boots I picked out 2 of my favourite shades to put them to the test!

Tester 1 : Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream RRP £4.99 from Boots.com 

I chose ‘Shabby Chic’ and I LOVE the colour! It goes on like a lipgloss with a wand which I much prefer to an actual lipstick application – I have tried it several times now and it has lasted through food, drinks and a whole nights sleep! So this sure has some staying power and at just £4.99 it is a great price too!

Screen Shot 2016-08-17 at 20.03.13Product description

Designed to suit all skin tones. Available in 6 Colours
Sleek Matte Me is a lipgloss with a smooth matte finish that glides on in one smooth application, with no need for a second coat.
The light as air texture provides you with comfortable wear for hours, that doesn’t cake, flake or dry out, ensuring long lasting colour all day.
Store in a cool dry place.

Tester 2 : Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick RRP £8.99 from Boots.com

Red shades are my favourites so I picked this as it was one of the bolder shades available in matte. Again it has a lipgloss wand application which makes it much easier to apply. This one is much more liquid and a little more messy to apply, the shorter wand also makes it a bit more fiddly (or maybe I just have fat fingers?) I can feel this one sitting on my lips more and I did lose the colour much quicker than the Sleek version.

Product description

Bold, matte and long-lasting colour with 24hr hold. It’s lightweight, velvety texture and non-drying formula gives extreme comfort that doesn’t smudge!
Available in 17 shades

From sassy reds to vibrant pinks and everyday nudes there is a colour to suit every occasion


Overall : I would choose the Sleek over the Bourjois as it lasted much longer and felt nicer on – for the price difference it is a much better buy!
