Valentine's Day is coming people oh no ! Don't fret for those of you that is single I've complied a list of things for you to do and to help me along with this I've collaborated with a fellow blogger Kristine you can click this link here to go visit her blog http://theblankpolaroids.co/.
I know on Valentine's Day it can be rather annoying seeing others giving each other flowers,chocolates and if your in school and you see girls getting Valentine's cards and Rose's but just because your single doesn't mean you can't enjoy the day go and have a little bit of fun. So here is my list of things to do when your single on Valentine's Day.
"Better to be with no one than to be with the wrong one".
(1) Friends - go pick up that phone and call your friends because they might be sitting at home drowning their sorrow's so why not have fun together. Pick up your friend and go to your local shop get a pile of junk food,go back to your house relax, talk , listen to music or even watch a dvd.
(2) Play your most embarrassing music - don't lie we all know you have some pretty dodgy songs on your Spotify play list. Turn up your music as loud as possibly can and dance around your room.
(3) Do something productive - look Valentine's Day can be frustrating but you can use that frustration by doing something productive like cleaning out your make up drawer,sorting out your wardrobe or even cook up an awesome dinner. You will feel so much better afterwards and you will feel like you've completed something.
(4) Movie marathon - weather it's Tom cruise or gorge clonney, spend the night with your ultimate celebrity crush. Go rent a mountain of his movies and have an eye candy movie marathon and if you don't feel like doing this alone call one of your friends I'm sure they wouldn't mind.
(5)Treat yourself - you deserve to have a little time out for yourself and pamper yourself why not book a manicure and go get your nails done or book a hair dressers appointment and get a little make over.
(6) Become a secret admirer - go around all your single friends houses leaving gifts on their doorstep or even get bunch of flowers sent to their house. It's a super cute idea and it would make their day.
Make sure you check out Kristine's post http://theblankpolaroids.co/2016/02/13/spending-valentines-day-when-youre-single/ . I hope you all have a lovely Valentine's Day and enjoy.
When to Bin it ??
Since were into the first couple of months of the new year there maybe alot of us decluttering and trying to start off the new year fresh so by doing so why not try emptying out that make up drawer I know it's a pain in the neck but it has to get done we all tend to keep our make up way past its life expediency and sometimes we don't want to part with !! But Just like food cosmetics go off too.
The product will loose its efficiency over time and you will become unable to use them for example foundation, the foundations staying power will become decreased over time and the constancy will change which prevents the ability of creating a smooth and long lasting base for your make up.
If you stumble across a lipstick in the back of your drawer and are unsure about the length of time you've had it there is a website that allows you to check up the date of when it was manufactured and how long of a shelf life it has all you have to do is enter the batch code printed on your cosmetic packaging and you will receive the results instantly here's the link if would like to check it out http://checkcosmetic.net/ .
Under the law now all cosmetics must display a symbol indicating the length of time before your product goes out of date eg 12m m= months I've created a little list of a rough indication of when you should throw out your make up based on each type of product.
I hope you found this little blog post useful I'm currently working on some collaboration posts for Valentine's Day which will be posted in the next couple of days if anyone would like to be part of a blog post that we are doing we are looking for embarrassing or funny first date stories you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or direct message me on Twitter @_L_A_U_R_A____ .
Until next time bees,
Hey bee's it's that time again outfit of the week so today I was feeling a little inspired by Valentine's Day and I thought I would create a cute little outfit which would be prefect for your date night on Valentine's Day so here's what I came up with.
I love this Double strap cross over detail bodycon dress in mauve which can be found online at missguided €39.20 https://goo.gl/iGLeIf. The colour I absolutely love, it would look prefect against any skin tone. You will definitely turn heads in this dress that's for sure. you can pair it up with a white heel just like these https://goo.gl/wjwbgb also from missguided "barely there strappy heeled sandals white croc " €35.00. For accessories you don't need to go over the top, this dress speaks for it's self and simplicity is key to complete this look pair it with a nude clutch https://goo.gl/jRCj3P.
I really hope you enjoyed this little look let me know what you think.
Until next time bees,
On Tuesday when I was in Dublin at the Jason Derulo concert I had to make a necessary stop to lush,I went in had a little nosy around picked out a few bath bombs which I will be doing a review on soon, I also picked up the scared truth face mask which I previously did a review on if you would like to check that out,here's the link http://goo.gl/EY8Y04.
But let's talk about BBSeaweed Face mask the formula is really effective and suitable for Sensitive skin. The consistency of the face mask is quite thick and almost like porridge with strips of what I assume is seaweed.
This Face Mask is mineral-rich and has the ability to cleanse and soften skin. All of the ingredients work in mysterious ways the seaweed is full of vitamins and minerals which repairs damaged skin cells, Kaolin reduces any oiliness on the skin and it also soften any dry skin so this mask is suitable for those with both sensitive or oily skin,Antiseptic Honey soothes skin and reduces any redness or inflammation on the skin, aloe Vera is soothing and has amazing moisturising capabilities, rose absoulte fights against any cellular damage and reduces redness.
Directions of use
Apply evenly all over face and leave for 5-10 minutes until the mask hardens on you skin and remove with Luke warm water.
After I removed the face mask I couldn't believe how soft and smooth my skin felt I have such dry skin at this time of the year due to the weather so I couldn't believe how well it worked. It mildly exfoliates your skin which I think is a great plus for a face mask. Just due to the fact it exfoliates your skin I would advise not to over use it because it could be harsh on your skin and irritate it. It also contains no preservatives which to me is so much more natural and good for you skin. I love the scent it's more of floral scent with a slight smell of sea water. It did reduce some redness on my skin I also noticed my skin looked brighter and had a glow to it after I used it. My sister also used it and she loved it.
Would I purchase again ? yes for sure
Rate - 9/10
If you would like to get your hands on this face mask check out your local lush store or visit their online store https://goo.gl/A9wQzN.
