TheSOproject week 1skincare


Well it's come round fast! Its week 1 of the Starting Off project started by the lovely Steph at
http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/8948509/stephs-inside-voice

This week is skincare now I wish a post like this was about when I started out in the beauty world.
 1st thing 1st find out your skin type 


And always buy product for your skin type! I have normal skin which breaks out at that time in the
Month.  So the product I'm suggesting is what I use and is at the cheaper end of the budget 
As I know when I started out money was a issue. 

My morning routine is always the same. In the shower is use soap and glory peaches and clean £8 
But always on 3 for 2 at boots! 

I use this as a quick mask in the shower and rinse off. 

Then I use 

Loreal skin perfection 3 in 1 micellar solution £4.99 but was half
price when i got it and a face wipe I have let dry out. These are primark twin pack £1 for 50. 
I like to cleanse my face with this just incase I still have any old product on my skin. 

Then it on to either naturally radiant brightening radiance balm £2.99 on half price at superdrug ATM.

Or Garnier moisture match combination to oily skin £3.99 at boots it's on half price. 

Now I use the 1st one if I. Wanting more of a dewy look and the 2nd if I'm going matte. 
I have to say the moisture match is a great primer for make up! 

Then I apply my make up and that's me until night time. 

I'm a Hugh believer in make up free when your at home and I think this is why my skin is in 
Pretty good condition. I take off my make up ASAP with 


Naturally radiant brightening hot cloth cleanser £4.99 £1 off at Superdrug just now. Now I find this a dupe for liz Earle I have to say I do favour liz Earle but this is a cheaper alternative  and it work just as 
Well so save your self £10 and get this. Plus it comes with a cloth to use with it. 

Now with this just wet your face, rub on a small amount of the cleanser all over your face. It won't 
Sting your eyes so don't worry. Place your cloth in hot water and squeeze it out and rub the product 
Off your face this will take a few times but its worth it. Bye bye evil panda eyes hello nice fresh skin. 

Then it's back to one of my moisturiser above and that me done! 


Now for that time of the month I call spot o'clock (grr) I wish I had found this little beauty before 
Nip+fab spot fix £9.95 at asos, after cleansing put a babb of this on your spot and the next day it's almost gone! And the redness that comes with it is gone too. It's a bit expensive but it last forever! 
Amazing amazing amazing !!! 


Can't wait to read everyone else posts.

Quick superdrug bash

Hi everyone, 


Today I had to run out to my local Superdrug and grab a few things. I'm afraid they are not very exciting but here is what I got. 

I picked up two so body sprays£1 each. One in so...? daring and one in so...? In love both are very sweet. I like having a couple of these in my locker at work and can't find my old ones so thought I'd grab these. 

I am always looking for my holy grail moisturiser and brightening cream. So I grabs this 
Naturally radiant blighting radiance balm £2.99 I'm hoping this will give me more of a wide awake look
Than a oh my gosh I need more sleep look. It has the same smell as the hot cloth cleanser from this range which I think is almost manly. 

Scholl fresh step shoe spray £ 3.99. I love this for my shoe and boots (especially my fiancé boots lol) 

Gillette fusion 11 pack razor £20. I love using men's razor as I feel I get a better closer shave so I buy these Which I just love. 

And last but not least imperial leather foam burst in sweet vanilla and cherry blossom £2. 
I love these foam washes. They make me feel like a kid again. Plus the smell is lush. 

Have you got any hauls for me to read?

My fitness update

Hay everyone, 


It's another miserable raining day here. So I thought I'd blog about my fitness program. I joined
http://www.resultswithlucy.com/ about 3 weeks ago. This is £12.99 per month with full access to both 
Video workout and a magazine. 

 Now I go through two extremes with fitness. I can be lazy and do minimal or go full out and work out a lot. 



I have used Jillian Micheal workout DVDs before and I loved them but I did them to often and got bored.
That's when I stumbled on results with Lucy. I love Lucy and her figure is something of dreams for me. 
I have battled weight problems in the past and lost 7 & a half stone size 22 but this was years ago. 

Since then I have remained between a  size 8 and a 10 even since! Which in my opinion is small.
I am hour glass shaped and very top heavy.  I will always be more curvy than skinny but I think that's
Sexy I'd rather be Kelly brook than Kate moss. 




I do a physical job and I need to be fit for it but the main reason I work out is it really affects my mood 
I get grumpy when I don't exercise. 

Now results with Lucy is set out with all different workout which you match together to make your own 
Targeted work out.  I love that you can pick and chose from a range of short videos and just repeat them 
Two or three times to make your workout harder. This also stops me getting bored as I try not to do the 
Same combination often. 

So for instance my work out yesterday was a warm up followed by two sets of cardio called sweat blast
 this is high impact circuit training and it what I love, working out hard and fast For short periods.
 I combined this with 2 sets of bye bye bingo wings. This is all about your arms, to tone them up using 
Weights. Then I added 2 sets of nice toned tummy. This is sit up based  And lastly my cool down this 
took about 40 mins to complete. 


You will need a couple of things if you plan on starting this program 
Water (hydrate to rejuvenate)
Weights (this is the only real must) 
Kettlebell (I still have to get this ) 
Step ( I need a better one)
Skipping rope (I need this too) 

Now I would recommend this program to any one. I feel muscle ache that I didn't know I had ! Which is a
Nice feeling as you know you have worked your ass off. 
Now my lovely fiancé has deleted my before photo but here is 3 weeks down the line doing this between 
3 to 4 times a week. I can for the first time in my life see definition I'm my tummy/ abs area. 


I really like this program and a hoping for more results. I will keep you all up a dated on my progress. 
Also I love playing spot the cute dogs in the back of Lucy and Cecilias work out. Plus is nice to see a celeb who
Is working out and you can tell Lucy does these work outs and has fun with them! Cecilla is a hard task master but 
It's all done in a fun way. 

Please leave me Any comments or question
