Yellow Dreams.....OOTD

 Hello Loveys,
 
So I was invited to my fiancés friends lovely wedding, I panicked as thought oh lordy I don't have an outfit! So off I popped and found this beauty in River Island, I struggled to find anything else in other highstreet stores which was really irritating as it is wedding season, but good ol River Island saved the day!
 
This dress retails at £45.00 which you can find here

I teamed this yellow bodycon dress with bright pink pointed heels which have gold detail at the front. The dress was really comfortable with a pleather effect neckline. The dress isn't one to wear if you want to fade in the background as its quite bright but I love this shade yellow despite my olive green skin tone it complimented it well, a definite winner!

Positive Thinking.....how to be happy and move on #3

Hi Loveys!
 
So here is the third instalment to the positive thinking series. How did your hand activity go and have you made your positive box? Be great to know!
 
quote, life, positive thinking, confidence, self esteem

 
Todays activity is a focus on your week, sometimes we can forget the things that make us smile and focus on the negative things as they take over how we feel and looking around that can be hard. What I want you to is draw a timetable Monday-Monday, with two sections under each day, one representing morning and one representing the afternoon, then place this on your fridge or by your kettle basically in a place you go to daily so you can see this regularly. So I want you to write a positive on each morning and afternoon section of your week, so looking at the smaller things such as the sun was out which made me smile, I had a lovely cup of tea, I saw a great film, My child gave me a cuddle etc, so looking at the smaller things in life that make us smile on a daily basis.
 
quote, life, positive thinking, confidence, self esteem
 
This task is one that works really well, then at the end of your week you can look at how many positives occurred rather then the focus going on the negative. When you have completed this add it to your positives box.
 
 
 
Now I want you to start a positives jar, you can get any jar you like and think of something you would love to save for, it could be an item of clothing, a chocolate bar, getting your hair done or a beauty item you are lusting over write that on the jar. Now, everytime you get a compliment I want you to say thank you to the person without any hesitation, repeat the compliment in your head and praise yourself by putting £ in your jar, this can be £0.20 to £10 a go however much you want to put it, then at the end of a month see how much you have and spend it on something for you as a well done. Accepting compliments can be so difficult and people react in various ways when complimented, a classic is saying with a nervous laugh "Oh no not at all, I just threw this together" or "You should go to specsavers" instead of these type of reactions smile and say thank you then reward yourself because in the words of Loreal "You are worth it".

Review: Yves Rocher Eau De Toilette

Hello Loveys,
 
How are you all? Its been a while since I have blogged, I have struggled with juggling everything so had to put my blog to the back of my mind but it is very much a loved part of my life and was itching to get back into it!
 
Todays post is a review on the *Yves Rocher L'eau Moment de Bonheur a delicate floral fragrance with notes of Centifolia Rose and apple, with a base of Virginia Cedar. The fragrance is described as being "modern and sparkling" which to me means it is a pretty floral but a pretty fragrance for a modern woman.

The bottle is basic, a square shaped clear bottle with a simple green title which matches the green intriguing liquid inside. I spritz this perfume on my skin and found it was fresh yet girley, you can definitely smell the apple and I found it lasted throughout my busy morning. I found it reminded me a lot of the Elizabeth Arden Green Tea and DKNY Apple perfumes, the scent is sweet yet not overpowering.

Review: KIKO Lipstick

Hello Loveys,
 
Its been a rainy day in these parts of the UK, and its summer! I have a review for you today on the KIKO Lipstick, an Italian brand that have recently come to the UK.

The lipstick I chose was from the Life In Rio Exotic range which they released for spring summer. The range is bright and bold with a mixture of corals and pinks with gold metallic packaging, and as per usual I chose the pink- Voluptuous Pink. This lipstick is moisturising, it is creamy and has great pigmentation. I applied this and instantly fell in the love with the bold colour and the glide on creamy formula, it needed reapplying like most lipsticks, but is a lipstick I will be using again and again over the next few months.

Here is a swatch of the lipstick, such a pretty pink that can be built up to a deep colour that leaves your lips soft and dreamy.
 
Have you tried KIKO?
