Hello ladies.. I haven't done one of these in FOREVER.. Can you believe we are in August already!?!?? Where is the time going!? We are in the second half of the year already, how scary. Summer is almost over and it doesn't really feel like we've had a full summer! GRR. I thought I would do this to ramble on a little bit.. If you have done one of these leave me the link in the comments so I can have a read!
MAC Peachtwist blush
Since Dubai, this has been my go to blush I think I have worn this almost everyday! I absolutley love the warmness and sparkle of it. It is working so well with my *sad face* fading tan, I really recommend it. Although it's a sheertone blush I am super impressed with how pigmented it is.

I have been wearing this everyday, honestly nothing beats applying this to my lips. I love it, the texture is so beautiful. I have noticed a real difference to the softness of my lips. I also love the fact it has such a pretty pink/lilac sheen to it that is perfect on it's own or over a lipstick.
This has been my saviour, honestly my skin has been so up and down lately and it seems as if Bio Oil is the only thing that has helped. I really don't know what I'd do without it. I have noticed how dehydrated my skin has been and this has really been helping. I apply it on its own or as part of my skin care routine, i.e under my moisturiser. I know a lot of people get skeptical about putting oil on their skin but I seriously couldn't live without this product right now.
I was sent a complete brush kit by Sigma make up and I have honestly been loving using these brushes, I have really put aside my MAC brushes and have new found love for these babies. A full review to come soon so look out for that!!
I took the plunge and on Friday I decided to get the iPhone 4, I have been an iPhone user from the very beginning and well I NEEDED the iPhone 4. Despite all the criticisms I have to say I am loving my new phone. I have so far not experienced any problems and I am really enjoying using it.
I love my iPad it such an ideal way to browse the net. It's perfect for traveling and I am loving having apps on a big screen. I have been doing Island Cardio, which my girl Tali recommended! I have to say I look totally ridiculous dancing like I'm from Hawaii, but hey its hurting so thats my way of believeing its working lol!
I love to travel especially during the summer, I am lucky that I have been to Egypt and Dubai already this year. This week I am off to Paris, which I am really looking forward to. I love Paris and it feels as if its been ages since I was back. I have also *JUMPS AROUND EXCITEDLY* booked my flight to see one of my closest girls in Orlando in September.. I can't wait.. we will be spending a few days in Miami too which should be mucho fun!
I have honestly been buying so much.. I have so many new clothes that I am desperate to wear.. lol.. I might start doing pics on the blog, although its tricky because I don't always have someone to take pics of me. I feel that my style is changing, as is my sizing so it's always an excuse to buy new clothes.
My friends have been amazing lately, I have also been in contact with long lost friends which is a great feeling. My best friend is in Tokyo at the moment and I am missing her like mad. Also the gorgeous Tali over at the GlossGoss, another one of my close friends is in Croatia and I can not wait for her to come back today! We have become so close over the last few months and it's been so weird not having her around!
Told you there was a lot of IN's!
The weather has been so bad the last few days I am honestly ready to scream, the weather impacts heavily on my mood and I think for those of you that follow me on twitter, will notice my moody tweets [sorry] I think that is why I have been so unsettled lately, because of the "Summer". We have good days then bad days.. but the gloominess of this weekend really pissed me off!!
Despite a few recent purchases, I haven't felt as inclined to buy make up as I usually do. I think I have got to the stage where I really am re-evaluating the products I use and using them more wisely. YAY... Give me a month! HA.
Diet - Weighing myself
I have been eating so badly lately.. I really need to jump back on the bandwagon. I am really trying to reach my goal weight but am also becoming obsessed with weighing myself. I don't have scales at home and instead I go to Boots approx once a week and get on the weighing machine which is pretty accurate and also calculates your BMI. From the beginning of when I started dieting I NEVER used to get on the scales I began to notice differences from the ways in which clothes fit me. I think I need to forget about the scales.. eat healthily and enjoy exercise. So for the next few weeks I am going to avoid Boots and the scales!
So there you have it..
What are you ins and outs of July/Summer?! I love knowing these.. leave me a comment
