Okay so we all know tassel earnings is Autumn’s 2017 must have acccesories ! , they are so beautiful and when I wear them I feel like a spanish senorita !. That was the look I went for last night  for my pre birthday drinks , I think people clocked on but I did get the ” you look like a spanish Paloma faith ” comment thrown in . They just look Darling , especially when you have your hair down and the one side pinned back it just looks so elegant I LOVE THEM. Heres a link Red Tassel Earings  & Green Tassel Earings if  you are interested in purchasing. At the moment they only have green and black online , but pop into your nearest H&M store if interested in red but be quick as they are selling fast!. They are all over the blogs at the moment so many stores will do copies, no doubt in my mind that Primark will have them aswell.

So the past Month I have been on the hunt for a perfect red/pink matte lips , now you know I am the queen of red lips because I know my shit when it comes to red lipstick!. My friend came into work and had this beautiful dark purple shade on her lips , she told me it was stila’s all day matte range , its important for me to have a lipstick that moisturises and stays on for a long length of time ( because I never have time to top up!). There was not one smudge on her lips for the whole day. We work 7 hours and she never even had to top up, So I brought it !. I brought Fiery Shade which is like a reddish/pink colour which is what I am looking for ! it drys within a minute and the colour is so rich and so delicious.For 9 hours I never had to top up , I had breakfast , lunch , and dinner…no top up was needed !, and its the same for Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood lips matte range. I brought screen siren and this colour just screams old hollywood glamour . Its just so beautiful , really moisture’s the lips and within an hour wearing it out shopping , I had RANDOMS coming up to me asking me what I am wearing. 1 thing I will say is that watch when you apply it , as it can come out quite thick so might just a big blob on your lip but just blend it in :). Im going to be taking more photos of these lipsticks this week so please have a look out for them ! . The below pictures I am wearing Stila with my red tassel earnings !.

Oh Chanel my darling Chanel! , of course I treated myself to Chanel ! . I have been using lancome powder for so long that I fancied a change so I opted for the Chanel les bieges Healthy glow sheer powder.I find on a night out that my foundation runs or I just get horrible shiny patches on my face ( dont we all when we been dancing our arses of for 3 hours straight!) , to my surprise this didn’t happen..4 bars 3 sweaty dance floors 2 run ins with the toilet and 1 mcdonalds..and I had a face of an angel. It gives a glowing natural finish and I find it soaks up the oil on the skin quite quickly !. To
822548b0dfbaedc18e15531e8f01391fgo with my powder I brought Chanel Correcteur profession concealer for my baggy eyes in the morning !. I suffer with bags because I’m a terrible sleeper , nothing has ever worked for me I tried Nars , Lush , Dior and NYX. This is a life saver , one stroke and the dark circles faded away its UNBELIABLE . Its quite creamy I only put 3 tiny dots on then blended it in so you dont need much and it blends nicely with your skin tone. I took it out with my last night and it was only 5 hours into the night that I needed to top  up so it last quite9ef72b6c4ff44992911b067c0f48caa5 long for a concealer !. The only concealer I have ever had is YSL Touche Eclat in which Chanel is pretty on par with YSL however I am pushing more to Chanel as it just makes your eye area more brighter and makes your eyes stand out more . The only downside to Chanel is you got to pay a hefty price but I guess its worth it if the product actually works in which I am a happy customer.In the images I am wearing both of these products , as you can see I have a lovely smooth tone to my skin. Over the coming weeks I’m going to start doing some beauty reviews , theres plenty of products I am interested in and many I have put down on my birthday wishlist ! , so hopefully quite soon I will get down to business and start doing them !. If theres anything you would like me to review ( I will post more photos wearing the items before and after) please let me know , and Ill see what I can do and give an honest review ).

THE PAST WEEK IN PICS

Coats and gloves are out ! and its time to prepare…WINTER IS COMING. Some people may think theres not a lot to do in the colder months , however I will prove you wrong ! ( in the Birmingham area !) Here are a few Photos of what I have been getting up to in the past week , We took a trip to the West Midlands Safari park! , Kenilworth Castle , I took part in the Alzheimers charity walk , and went into Birmingham for a nice cup of Brew!. I took park in the Alzheimers charity walk for my lovely Grandma who passed away with this horrible disease a few years ago , I managed to raise £210! a good contribution that will go a long way, it was so lovely to see thousands out taking park in the walk from little kids to all fours , it was a lovely occasion. These are photos that I took on my phone , interested in any of the places we went to? then leave me a comment and I can tell you all about them !. This was just in a week and I will be uploading more photos and sharing my experience of days out similar to this !.

OUR FIRST DATE SURVIVAL GUIDE

Okay you like this guy , and he likes you ..your not going to make the first move because then that would show that “your desperate and you dont want to come across desperate now do we” ?! so you wait and wait until he turns round and ask’s you out on a first date!. However how do you prepare for a first date..when you have never been on a date before?!…hmm tricky but after my experience of many first dates I have put together the many stages and tips of surviving a first date!…Caution expect a lot of GIFS .

STEP ONE: HE HAS FINALLY ASKED..YEEEEY

omg.gif

You have waited so long for this moment and finally the moment has come..its only feels like we have been talking for a million years right ?The excitement grabs hold of you YEYYYYYYYYSAJDHASJDHAJDJASHDJAHSJDHJAHSDJA and you do a little victory dance round your room , but then it suddenly sinks in that…

STEP TWO : HE HAS FINALLY ASKED…OH F U C K

help me.gif

PANIC MODE , now you start thinking the worse..and you start searching the internet for tips on how to survive a first date , you call your friends , and you hit the magazines. Hes decided on where you going for a date and all the things you  need to do start flooding into your brain and you start to panic even more and get even more nervous! BUT this is actually normal and the thing is..he will be nervous to. Women always think about the littlest things being a big problem , we look into stuff a little bit more then men would..That’s just us women we are terrible worriers and over thinkers, so lets prepare!.

STEP THREE: SOMEONE SAY SHOPPING?!

giphy (5).gif

Shopping can cure a panic attack so why not go shopping and take the stress of your mind and turn it into excitement. You will feel better if you know you got a good outfit but never leave this to the day before or even on the day . Unfortunately I had done this, I left it to the morning of my date and all it did was turn me into an emotional wreck because I couldn’t find anything , almost nearly backing out of my date. However not every date needs a new wardrobe , it depends what you do if its a day out at a zoo wear a pair of jeans dont opt for a mini skirt and heels..remember to always be you when it comes to your look ..dont stalk his Facebook and come across his ex-girlfriend who is a typical dolly bird and you being a tomboy feel you have to copy her because that’ WAS his “type”.Obviously he wants to go on a date with you because he likes the look of you now, dress like you and dont bloody catfish the guy.

STEP FOUR: SOMEONE SAY PAMPER DAY?

giphy (6).gif

Get a face mask on the go! and just pamper yourself . I always do this before a date because if I know I feel and look good then I have the confidence to take on this date. I wouldn’t go down the line of getting bloody bottox or a colonic …

STEP FIVE : RELAX

giphy (7).gif

This one is a hit and miss really because sometimes it is hard to relax before our dates we have those bloody annoying little butterflys in our stomachs and sometimes we are even stood by the toilet for 2 hours before our dates. Yep you have first dates anxiety , however your date is most likely going through this aswell. It almost feels like a job interview however your not going into this date to get the job as his girlfriend , this isn’t the bachelor…you both are evaluating each other and you both will be nervous. I find giving myself a prep talk , listening to music whilst getting ready , and taking deep breaths helps to calm my nerves a lot .

STEP SIX : PREP

Have you got everything you need? have you done a background check on this guy? have you checked out the restaurant menu?..sometimes its good to do these things especially checking you have the Hand bag essentials for a first date..

  • ID
  • Cash/Card- I know many girls wont agree , it should always be the guy who pays but this is the first date and you don’t know if hes going to be the “one” or a douche.
  • Lippy/Makeup- its such a pain in the ass when you have spent half an hour on your lips and you forget your bloody lipstick!
  • Pills/health essentials- you may be on Period ( sorry lads) and we dont want an accident now do we? you may have health issues IBS? always be prepared because you dont know when that fucker is going to pop up ( Can I hear all my IBS people say amen? AMENNNNNN!)
  • Keys- Your going home tonight alone please see tip nine
  • Back up Plan- I always have back up plans with my dates especially with the men who I hardly know , when they are completely different to what they are on there facebook page or hes just a bloody idout . Whether its a phonecall , your not feeling well , or this just isnt working..a plan is needed.

STEP SEVEN: JUST BE COOL…BE COOL

giphy (8).gif

Don’t go in pretending to be something your not , dont blab about how you met the queen , you have a pet great white shark , or your a secret agent..because if this guy is going to stay around it will come back on you . Remember your date is not a chooser , you have a say in this date too and really its about do you both have a connection? .

STEP EIGHT: SLOW DOWN ON THE ALCHOL 

giphy (9).gif

A drink is needed for a dinner date but 12 drinks..you’ll be needing a hospital bed. Take it easy dont go diving in for a double vodka because you might not make it to the main course. Take it easy because your date might actually want a sober conversation with you?! don’t let the nerves get the better of you and turn to alcohol to calm you down. I remember one date I got so drunk I threw up and it was literally like a garden hose pipe ! all over his freshly cut lawn..yeah I never saw him again =/ so please take note!. Also I am always cautious with my drink with dates , if you don’t know this guy very well then its best you stay safe and go for the one that is served by the waiter .

STEP NINE: CLOSE THOSE LEGS MISSY!

giphy (10).gif

If you really like this guy and see a future with him then close your bloody god damn legs ! dont go jumping into bed with him… make him chase you and  make him get to know you more. The amount of times I have had friends turn to me crying because they slept with their first dates and havent heard of them since is not surprising to me , if the lad really likes you and sees a future he wouldnt be trying to get into your knickers on the first date..

STEP 10 : MOST IMPORTANTLY DONT FORGET TO BE YOU

giphy (11).gif

First dates are fun and theres a reason why the guy has asked you on a first date because they want to get to know you more , don’t feel you have to be someone your not and don’t ever stop being you. The amount of times I have felt silly because I let my humour get the best of me but then I actually get a positive response from it?! , I am a funny girl ..I am not the sort of girl who needs to apply powder every 10 minutes or skip to the bathroom just to bloody brush my hair. So what if you accidentally dribble spaghetti sauce down your chin? or talk about One direction? or get a bit of spinach in your teeth!? , laugh it of and carry on , we are not perfect and if your date doesn’t see the funny side , then maybe you should throw him back into sea with the rest of the fishes that can’t handle a real woman.

So there you go I hope my tips helped all you first date timers , it can be a nerve wracking and an exciting time but just enjoy , and who knows it may be the start of something awesome !. If anyone wants some more tips please email me, Hope you have enjoyed it guys!.

COLLABORATION Q & A

My first collaboration and its with…Kristina Swanson!. As I often talk about relationships a lot on this blog we opted for a relationship Q & A, Kristina chose 10 questions for me to answer , and I chose 10 questions for Kristina to answer.Whether you have relationship issues , going through a bad patch , or not having a bloody clue and need some advice!..have a read of these answers. I think we have all been guilty searching google frantically looking for answers so maybe this will help..Thank you Kristina for the opportunity a lovely girl with a kick ass blog! ,  please go check it out and give this girl a follow!.

1.Do you think its right to give your partner access to all of your social media? Why?

I think if you need your partner’s social media passwords, there’s a trust issue somewhere. At the same time, if you’re asking for them and they say no, that’s a problem because there should be nothing to hide. In my relationship we have nothing to hide and we have each other’s passwords just because we have learned them over the years. But with that being said, I would never go through his social media because that’s his personal conversations and I don’t want to invade his privacy. It just comes down to trust in the end, it’s the most important thing in a relationship and if you can’t trust your partner, I’m sorry to say, it probably won’t last.

2.What would you define as cheating?

Some people define cheating as anything physical, of course yes that is cheating, but cheating is also emotional. If my partner is talking to someone else and building up feelings and an emotional connection with anyone but me, that’s not okay.

3. 3 tips to get over a break up?

1) Don’t communicate with them until there are no more feelings there. You will never move on if you’re in constant contact with the person you’re trying to forget.

2) Stay busy and get out of the house. Laying in bed all day thinking about your feelings will only make it worse. Go out with friends and get your mind off things.

3) Stay positive. Everything is meant to be so if you guys couldn’t last, you need to trust that someone else is out there for you.

4.Do you think its right to have sex on the first date?

 I think that sex is a personal decision. I have never had sex on the first date, but I’m not here to judge if you do. If you feel like it’s right that’s your choice but I like to wait until I get to know someone.

5.When do you know that its finally time to settle down and have kids ?

 I don’t there’s a certain time frame for phases in a relationship. When you know, you know. Whether that’s 5 years in or 5 months. All relationships move at different speeds and the only person who knows your relationship is you.

6.Do open relationships really work?

 Again I think that’s a personal decision. I could never be in an open relationship just because I am a very jealous person when it comes to that type of stuff but some people are just fine with open relationships so I think that differs from person to person.

7.Have you ever been unfaithful in an relationship? and if so why?

 No I have never been unfaithful. I don’t believe in cheating on someone. If you’re unhappy, just leave. When you’re with someone it’s because you love them, whether you still do or don’t, at one point you did. I have been cheated on in the past and it has really affected me in future relationships so don’t do that to them, just end it.

8.Is it important to have a good relationship with your partner’s family?

 For me, family is everything and I’m very close to my boyfriend’s family and vise versa. But that all depends on your partner’s relationship with their family. There might be some issues with their family which I think is important to respect.

9.Is there a correct way of ending a relationship? how would you end a relationship?

 I think that if you’re ending a relationship, you need to do it face to face if you’re able to. If you’re with someone, they deserve to be told why you’re ending it and what happened. I think it’s disrespectful to break up with someone over the phone and keeping their feelings in consideration, I think it’s best to do it in person.

 10. Do you believe being in a relationship is a must in life? is finding “the one” important?

I am a relationship person. I like having someone to share things with and I think love is the most important thing in life. But again, there are people who like to be single and have fun, and there’s nothing wrong with that! So, I think it’s a personal thing
