I get bloated really badly 90% of the time, every single day. It gets really exhausting and I've had enough. When I came across the company Skinny Coffee Club, I was very excited to find out that their coffee isn't only a saviour for the caffeine addicts, but also improves complexion, increases energy levels, makes you lose weight without having to exercise and tastes amazing.

The packaging is so cute, it looks like a little parcel - a gift to you from you :) It's very easy to store too as it isn't too big. My cupboards are full of seasoning, rice, pasta etc so I don't have a lot of spare space, but this little bag of heaven fits in there perfectly!

The taste is just phenomenal. I can't explain it.. I like the taste of normal coffee and I like the taste of green tea - combine the two and you've got the taste that I LOVE. It tastes fresh, and I feel energised 15 minutes after finishing off my cup. And the great thing about this product is that you only need one cup a day to see the results!

I highly recommend this coffee for all those who need help with losing weight but hate/don't have access to the gym. I actually have a gym membership and try to go as often as I can (usually 3 times a week) and work hard to gain muscle and tone up, but this coffee prevents me from getting bloated and I feel 10 lbs lighter every day just by drinking it.

Along with the coffee and gym, I try to eat healthily too. I cook my meals from scratch and always try to include a lot of veg as I feel like I don't eat enough of them. But, like I've said before you can drink this coffee on its own and notice amazing results just after a week. So, go on and give it a go!

Hey Dolls!

I've been recently having a really shit time in my life. Constantly feeling like I'm second best to some people and it messed with my mind a lot. Idk, maybe it's because I've not been eating well nor working out or just simply because I'm fed up with peoples' BS and wanted to finally get things my way.

Imagine being friends with a lovely group of people and never being invited anywhere, yet you've done nothing wrong (EVER)? Well, that's happened to me on a number of occasions so I finally decided to take action and not give a fuck about what people have to say. I stood up for myself and confronted them all, only to find out that they wanted me to come but knew I'm always working - considerate mates or total BS?

This actually caused me to cut fake friends out of my life - aka best decision ever! There were so many people that I previously called my 'best friends' and once I decided I had enough of the shit they put me through. E.g. one time when I was 15 my so called 'best mate' stood me up to go see a lad without telling me! I was ringing and texting her loads hoping she was okay and that nothing had happened as I was waiting for her in town, only just to get a text off her mum saying she went off to meet her boyf, LOL what a bitch!


I remember walking into school without makeup on and the first thing I heard was 'OMG are you okay? You look really ill - maybe you should go home?' WTF who says that? Mate, I've not slept well and I can't be bothered to wear makeup today, what's the big deal? Sorry that I don't look like Megan Fox, I really am - she's so hot, but jeez let me do me and worry about yourself! We're not all meant to be flawless without our fave beauty products! 

The best thing to do when you're in a similar situation is to smile and say you're perfectly happy/well and take pride in your beautiful makeup-less face!


When someone comments on your weight - laugh it off. They're obviously so self conscious that they feel the need to point out your 'imperfections'. I stopped listening to people's negative remarks as I think they're pathetic. Yes I gained 10 pounds, yes I am aware that now I buy bigger clothes, and no I certainly do not give a fuck about your negative opinion. 

Whether you have lost or gained weight, it does not matter what other people think as long as you are happy in your own skin - that's what makes you appear more beautiful than a stupid figure. You work out and eat clean? Great! You cut down on snacks to lose a couple of pounds before a big event? Fab! You've been binge eating Ben&Jerry's Phish Food? Lucky You! What's not okay is people telling you that you look better/worse in a certain shape - obviously it's best to eat healthy foods and exercise a few times a week for your own good, but if that's not for you then that's also OKAY!

I'm sick and tired of people being nasty and fake for no reason - always put your own happiness before others, but don't be a bitch, there's nothing worse than being horrible to others to make yourself feel better.

I hope this helps you guys feel better and make decisions that benefit you over others!

Lots of love,

Recent Purchases

Hey Beauties!
I wanted to treat myself to some new bits and bobs after recovering from my operation and before all my exams start so during that time I could save up for my holidays etc.
So my little shopping trip consisted of buying lots of stationary for myself and my little brother, and obviously some beauty picks too. I chose my favourite brand at the moment - Essence, Ted Baked body spray and some supplements.
So as we all know supplements are good for us. But do we take them regularly? No... So when I saw that Holland&Barrett had a mid season sale I had to pop in to see for myself! Those cod liver oil tablets were reduced from £12.99 to only £6.49 so I had to grab this bargain! There are 120 capsules so it will last me for 4 months which made me even happier as I always feel ill and like I don't have enough vitamins in my system.
I always wanted a Ted Baker body spray but the price has put me off a bit even thought t was too expensive but I just thought I'm not paying 7 quid for some body spray, but when it was reduced to half price in my local Boots I had to grab it. I love this scent, it's perfect for SS15 as it's floral but also sweet and flirty so it's great for nights out.
Essence is my number one brand for lip and eye products at the moment. You can read my review of their products here. I chose 3 nude lipsticks, two lip liners and one eye pencil. Wilko's always has great offers on their make-up and when I saw the 3 for 2 sign I just couldn't resist those beautiful colours!!
l-r 03 Come Naturally, 02 Porcelain Doll and 05 Cool Nude. Those colours are absolutely fantastic and suit any skin type and colour. They are long lasting and moisturise the lips as well as make them look fuller.

Here are the swatches of the lipsticks and as you can see they are very pigmented after one coat. My favourite has to be the one on the left as it reminds me of MAC's Brave a lot and for only £3.20 it's a steal!
Those two lip liners are in shades Satin Mauve and In the Nude. I absolutely love Essence lip liners as they are very soft and easy to apply as they glide on the lips smoothly.
And a long lasting eye liner in the shade Berry Merry which is a new addition to the collection.
On the left side is the swatch of the eye liner and the other two are lip liners. as you can see they're all highly pigmented and look very soft. I would recommend any of Essence products to any of you beauty gurus who are looking for style steals!

Have you entered my MAC lipstick giveaway yet? Hurry, you only have one week left!

Food Supplements for a Healthier You

Hi guys!
Today I wanted to talk about how important food supplements are. I have been taking vitamins for a good 2-3 years now, and I try not to forget to take them daily. Like many girls, I've been trying to grow my hair for a while now. I'm well known for bleaching and dying  my hair different colours, which has actually ruined my hair so badly that I had to have it short for around 3 years now. I stopped changing my hair colour non stop last year, and only get highlights done whenever I go to the hairdressers for a trim. It really is true what they say about having regular trims and hair growth. If you have your hair chopped every 6-8 weeks then it will grow faster as it will stop breaking off. I never believed it until I tried it. now I have regular trims and noticed a huge difference in my hair length to what it was like before I started having regular cuts.
I've read online that all fish oils have a great impact on hair growth, and speed the process up making your hair grow at least half an inch extra each month! The shopping had to be done.
As you can see, Omega 3 Fish Oil is really good for the heart's health, so faster hair growth isn't the only benefit form this supplement! 
Cod Liver Oil is apparently very good for skin, which is perfect from me as I suffer from combination skin which is dry in some places and oily in others. 
Of course, A-Z vitamins is the most important supplement you need, especially if you don't eat enough fruit and veg. The Tesco's own brand vitamins are actually very good, I've been taking them for a while now and I've noticed a huge difference in how I feel than when I had my other own brand A-Z.
If you have any questions then do not hesitate to comment or email me :)
Lots of love,
