Devine Nails

Hay everyone

how are we all Today?

I have yet another throat infection so I have been a bit on the quite side lately.

Today I have a review for you of Devine Nails1

 Now Girls you know I love me some pretty nails. The Lovely Laura sent me some nails. I was really worried as I don't find false nails stick on me very well. until I met Laura at Devine nails that is.


I said at the end of the vid I would let you know How long they lasted and for me it was 3 days before I took them off. The glue with these must be something magic as false nails never stay on my nails for more than a couple of hours.

This are so perfect for people like me who struggle to do there right hand.

make sure you add Devine nails on twitter.

I have to mention theses will last time and time again the quality is just so good its crazy.

My fast day meal plan

I start with porridge which is so yummy I want to have it every day. 

Lunch I either have veg soup or a shake

then dinner I have the pasta carbonara which when I first made it I thought this is tiny but oh my gosh this is so filling. 

then I have the best thing in the word nut fudge bar OH MY GOSH. if theses were for sale in the chocolate isle its safe to say i would pick these over anything else. its like a mix between a snickers and a mars bar.

Now You can have coffee and tea and water with this. This is 600 calories a day. Now I thought I would be to tired to work out but I can still work out on my fast days as my energy levels are still high.wooop

I did a juice detox before I started this and lost 5.5lbs so I am delighted to say I have lost another 2lbs. now you are thinking thats not much but considering the detox weight loss has been maintained and a extra 2lbs. I'm delighted. I have a day on my Lighterlife fast filmed which will be up next week.

Insprational sunday JK Rowling


Hay everyone, 

Its Sunday so that means its Inspirational person day up in here!!

So I had the pleasure of living in Edinburgh for a few years and I used to have rehearsals for a show I was in, in a very famous cafe in Edinburgh. If your a Harry Potter fan you mite have guest it was the cafe that JK Rowling wrote her first Harry Potter book. I love this story she was a struggling mum who over came all the odds to be a very famous and respected writer.


"There's always room for a story that can transport people to another place. "
- J.K.Rowling 

Short Biography J K Rowling

J.K Rowling was born in Chipping Sodury, July 31st 1965. Her childhood was generally happy, although she does remember getting teased because of her name, “Rowling” – She recalls often getting called “Rowling pin” by her school friends. J.K. Rowling says she never really warmed to her own name, although, she does remember having a fondness for the name Potter from quite an early age. J.K.Rowling studied at St Michael's Primary School in Gloucestershire, before moving to Chepstow, South Wales at the age of nine.
From an early age, J.K. Rowling had an ambition to be a writer. She often tried her hand at writing, although little came from her early efforts. Aged six she wrote a book about a rabbit with measles. After her mother praised her effort. Rowling replied 'well get it published then.' She admits it was a 'Bit of an odd thing for a child of six to think. I don’t know where it came from…”

In her own autobiography she remembers with great fondness, when her good friend Sean became the first person to give her the confidence that one day she would be able to make a very good writer.
Sean was also the owner of a battered old Ford Anglia, which would later appear in one of the Harry Potter series as a flying car.
After finishing school, her parents encouraged her to study French  rowling 
She slightly regretted choosing French, 
After having spent a year in Paris, J.K.Rowling graduated from university and took various jobs in London..
It was in 1990, that J.K.Rowling first conceived of the idea about Harry Potter. As she recalls, it was on a long train journey from Manchester to London when she began forming in her mind, the characters of the series. At the forefront, was a young boy, at that time not aware that he was a wizard. The train was delayed for over four hours, but she didn’t have a pen and was too shy to ask for one nothing
,


But she remembers being very enthusiastic, and excited about the ideas which were filling her mind.
On arriving at her flat in Clapham Junction, she began work on writing the book immediately, although, it would take several years to come to fruition.

It was also in December of 1990 that J.K.Rowling lost her mother, who died of Multiple Sclerosis. J.K.Rowling was very close to her mother, and she felt the loss deeply. Her own loss gave an added poignancy to the death of Harry Potter’s mother in her book. She says her favourite scene in the Philosopher’s Stone is, The Mirror of Erised, where Harry sees his parents in the mirror.
In 1991, J.K.Rowling left England to get a job as an English teacher in Portugal. It was here that she met her first husband, Jorge Arantes - and together they had a child Jessica. However, after a couple of years, the couple split after a fierce argument; where by all accounts J.K.Rowling was thrown out of the house.

In Dec 1993, Rowling returned to the UK, moving to Edinburgh where she tried to finish her first book. She was surviving on state benefits and bringing up her daughter as a single parent. She would often go to Edinburgh cafes to work on the book whilst her child had a nap.

Eventually, she finished her first copy of the Philosopher's Stone', and sent it off to various agents. She found an agent, Christopher, who spent over a year trying to get a publisher. It was rejected by 12 major publishing houses. But, eventually, a quite small publisher, Bloomsbury agreed to take the book on. The editor Barry Cunningham also agreed to pay her an advance of £1500. The decision to take on the book was, in large part, due to his eight year old daughters enthusiastic reception of the first chapter (However she was advised to continue her training as a teacher because she was told writers of children’s books don’t tend to get very well paid.)
Within a few weeks of publication, (1996) book sales really started to take off. The initial print run was of only 1,000 First editions are now said to be worth up to £25,000 each. 

She also received a grant from the Scottish arts council, which enabled her to write full time. After the books initial success in the UK, an American company Scholastic agreed to pay a remarkable £100,000 for the rights to publish in America. 

 

In 1998, Warner Bros secured the film rights for the books, giving a seven figure sum. The films have magnified the success of the books, making Harry Potter into one of the most recognisable media products. Under the close guidance of J.K.Rowling, the films have sought to stay close to the original plot; also at J.K.Rowling’s request all the actors are British and are filmed in Britain.

On the 21st December 2006, J.K.Rowling finished her final book of the Harry Potter Series – "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows". The book was released in July 2007, becoming one of the fastest selling books of all time. J.K.Rowling has said the book is her favourite, and it makes her both happy and sad. She has said she will continue writing but there is little chance of continuing the Harry Potter Series. She however, may release a dictionary of things related to Hogwarts and Harry Potter, that were never published in other books.
Since the end of her Harry Potter series, she says she has finished some short stories, she also hinted on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 1st October, 2010, that an 8th book in the Harry Potter series is a possibility.

I love the rags to riches element to this story. we have all been living on the bread line so why cant one of us live our dream like JK Rowling?

#bloggersdoitbetter Spring


Hi everyone 

how are you all?

Today is the first #BloggersdoitBetter Challenge! Today's challenge was Bloggers do Spring better.

I know I'm late to the party. So I thought long and hard about this and thought I would go a bit different. 



I think bloggers do spring better because I personally had a bad start to the year and feel that spring is a new beginning for us all. when I think of spring I think of the influx of colour and life. yes I know everyone says the start of the year is a fresh start but I think its spring. lots of life coming out of the cold winter. 

I have to say I would not have gotten to where I am today with out the lovely community of blogger I have met this last year. and I have never felt so supported as I do by my fellow bloggers.

so to me spring is about more than lambs and easter eggs even if they are chocolate. Its about my fellow bloggers and the power of the positive people in this community can have on you,

Guest Post By HippieHonz winter to spring fashion



Hay everyone, 

How are we all today? 

I would like to introduce you to the lovely Brooke Honza Johnson. or as I know here @hippiehonz. I met this lovely girl through a blogger on line party that +WearEponymous  
held and i am delighted she has joined me for a guest post. So enough from me here is Brooke. 


Springing Forward
Turning winter outfits into airy spring ensembles.


I am welcoming spring with open arms. I love floral prints, pretty pastels and bright lippy, but it always takes me a little time to make a full transition from the previous season. When spring comes around I’m so pumped to see new colors, patterns and trends - it’s so refreshing - but at the same time I feel like I was just hitting my winter wardrobe stride. Making the shift from cozy sweaters and boots to light airy ensembles takes mental preparation and the season of sunshine just snuck up on me. In order to make the transition a little easier, I like to adapt my favorite winter outfits into light springy looks. By changing up a few elements I can spring forward from snuggled up to pastel princess. I chose to stick with my favorite floral skinny jean and change my shoes, accessories, jacket and lipstick. I instantly updated my look to be in season.



Winter look:
Mossimo floral skinny jeans, BDG chambray shirt, Lucky Brand black booties, Charlotte Russe fur vest, vintage necklace






Spring:
Mossimo floral skinny jeans, Mossimo t-shirt, Mossimo blazer vest,  Franco Sarto sandals

This girl as amazing eye for fashion wouldn't you say? I am loving this post and hope Brooke will do another post soon.
