Food intolerances and me!

So it's summer! 

And my body hasn't been the best it can be lately, yes it's down to me! Being lazy and my ibs taking it's told. Bad me I know. 

So I decided to have my food intolerances tested. 

I seen a deal on wowcher for £19 and couldn't pass it up. 

All I had to do was send off 6 strands of hair in a envelope with my full name, date of birth, gender and email address. 

Two days later I received my results 

Here they are .....

Some I am already aware of but some shocked me to the core. 
The boxes in red my body shouldn't have any at all ever and the yellow boxes mean these are to be avoided! 

I know I am allergic to cheese. I'm so upset that so many of my favriote food are on my intolerant list 
Turnip, potatoes, tomatos, gelatin good bye jelly baby's we had a fun few years together. 
Green grapes, oranges, turkey, pork all off it shopping list! 

So the company that tested me recommends me to not eat any of these products for two weeks then slow introduce them. To see how they affect me! 

So I am going to do this and get back to you all woth how I get on! 

Have you tried having this test done?

My Summer Beauty tips

Hi Everyone, 

So its getting hot up here finally, So My mind has gone to my top beauty tips

1, Water, H2O what every you want to call it, Drink it remember not drinking enough not only dehydrates you and makes you feel rubbish your skin needs this to live so, top up that glass. 

2, SPF is your BFF! Get your skin protected unless you want skin damage and skin aging. 
remember your foundation mite have SPF but have you put some on the rest of your body? 

3. Working out in the heat? Take all your make up off! if you don't this will cause major spots, as the sweat and make up will clog your poor pores. Eeek

4. Get scrubbing, If you don't exfoliate your skin often, Your skin will look old and feel rough plus you will need to do this for 5

5. fake don't bake. We have all read the news sun bathing causes skin cancer, There are loads of fake tan that gives you the same out come as hours in the baking sun scorching your skin! So why risk it?

6. Remember summer is a busy time,with lots more to do, So take time out for yourself. Read that book you want to read. go for a run. eat that cake, watch endless orange is the new black, just be happy 

7. Peer pressure, Just because the sun is shine doesn't mean you have to do what your told or feel forced to do. If you don't want to go to the party don't go! If your on a drinking ban you don't have to drink! if your on a diet and are happy to be that's your choice, that cake will be there after. if your feeling bad trust your gut feeling its 99.99% accurate 

8. moisturize your poor thirsty skin. This is the biggest thing you have. it covers your body and protects you. So treat it daily to a nice treat and grab your fave oil, lotion, spray and get skin happy. 

9. Vitamins are important summer and winter. If your not a big fruit and veg fan grab some muiti vits and give your body a health glow inside and out. Your body is your machine. You should treat it like its the best thing in the world. Lets face it we want your body to be healthy for along time to come. 

10. Rest, yes the sun is up longer this does not mean you have to be. 
your Body need to recover so it needs its down time. Nothing makes you look and feel better and a good nights sleep! So many of us struggle with sleep this time of year but its important to get at least 7 hours a night. to give your body the repair time it need to process and protect you. 

So thats my top tips 
What do you think?

Review Tart 4 In 1 Mascara Lights camera Lashes

Hi Everyone, 

How are we all today? 

So I recived this mascara in My glossybox This claims to be lengthening, curling, volumizing, and conditioning mascara infused with olive esters to condition, treat, and protect lashes.

So here is my Review of Tarte 4 in 1 mascara

 The packaging is cute and I like the wand is simple and not over designed 
 Naked eye
 Left eye with the tarte Mascara 
 Its quite a impressive difference in my lashes, Plus it was easy to apply this is two coats 
 Both eyes complete
 Loving the volume and its really quick drying
 Look at the length this has given my lashes!

I have had this on a few hours now there has been no smudging and my lashes has stayed in place. 
Its safe to say this is a really good mascara. Im not sure if it is available in the uk yet but it can be bought here

 Which is about the same as a budget mascara but the postage whould take it to high end so im not sure if I would repurchase this but when Im next in the US I  think I will have to get some more products to try. 

Have you tried any of tartes cosmetics?

Shine like a celeb confidence winners!

As you know I am a huge supporter of confidence, I was lucky to be asked by the lovely people at shine like a celeb to be part of there amazing campaign last month, 

As you know confidence is key in life and we should all strive to have confidence in ourselfs. 

The campaign was to send a selfie to win some major prizes which included a limited addition of the amazing shine like a celeb cream ( jealous me no) ok I am! 

The winner also get to feature on my blog, the gorgeous http://whatshellsays.blogspot.co.uk and http://angelajeter.hubpages.com/hub/Shine-Like-A-Celeb-Featuring-Mary-Brothwood

Here are the two worthy winners:

Winner 1 - Mary Brothwood 

What does confidence mean to you?

Confidence is extremely important. Encounter every new day with a smile on your face and your best foot forward, and you can’t stray wrong. If something knocks you down, you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start afresh.
Confidence in yourself is what gains your achievements in life – your friends, your job, your partner – and your future. It’s what keeps you smiling :-)

Which celebrity inspires you and why?

Oprah Winfrey inspires me. She had a hard start in life and suffered a lot of tragedy. She worked hard to achieve her career in Communication and now hosts one of the most successful talk shows in the world. Sheer determination, confidence and her honest and likeable nature have turned her life around. She is extremely inspirational.

Who in your family gives you inspiration?

My mum is my ultimate inspiration. She cares full-time for my step sister who’s 35, who has epilepsy, severe learning difficulties and struggles to walk. My sister Heather is completely dependent, and my mum has been by her side through everything, with my dad strongly supporting them both. Even during the hardest struggles, when my sister has been at her worst, my mum has been a confident, positive rock that has taken the world on her shoulders. She has and always will be to me, the most beautiful woman on the planet. Inside and out.  

What does "shine like a celeb" mean to you?

It means letting yourself be as confident as you possibly can be – a celebrity without the celebrity status. Trying to look your best and feel your best. Letting your confidence shine through to all those around you – smile and the world will smile back at you.

What's the one message you would like to give to the readers?

To always be yourself, and be confident with who you are. As individuals we are all beautiful, and we have the power to make not just ourselves happy, but the world around us too.
Live every day as though it could be your last – and shine to all those around you.

Tell us a bit about yourself and what you’re currently doing?

I work full-time for a Building Maintenance company, so I work with a lot of tradesman! Confidence is important for this as I have to know my job inside out, and be confident enough to resource my tradesmen effectively. I have a gorgeous family – my partner and his son Lucas, who’s 5. We’ve only been together for 2 years – but I couldn’t imagine life without them! :-)

Winner - 2 Katie Watkin

What does confidence mean to you? 

I think confidence is very important to everyone. Everyone should feel good about themselves when they go out in public. People without confidence need to build it back up and make sure that they feel good, because everyone can. 

Which celeb inspires you & why?

Beyonce, she just runs the world!! She's an inspiration to all girls and how all girls should follow.

Who in your family gives you inspiration?

My mum gives me the most inspiration in my family, she's an amazing woman! She does everything for us children. She's full of confidence and always tries her best at everything, whether people care or not, she'll do it.
What does "shine like a celeb" mean to you?

"Shine like a celeb" comes across to me as someone who shines 24/7 like a celebrity, someone who's very genuine and not too confident, a nice confident.

What's the one message you would like to give to the readers?

Always be confident, wherever you are in the world, whoever you are with, and whenever. Be confident in your own skin and shine wherever you go!!! 

Tell us a bit about yourself and what you're currently doing?

I've just finished school, I'm going onto college in September to do Health and Social L3 course. I enjoy socialising with my friends and will miss them when I'm in college, but we live close to each other so I'm not too worried. I work in a restaurant as a waitress. I enjoy waitressing, instead of being bored stuck at home, because my family are still in school/work so it's nice to get out of the house and earn some money.

Both these gorgeous girl are beautiful, intelligent and confident! 
They are more than worthy to shine like a celeb.

My new diet be skinny drink me

Hi everyone,

So the wedding is over and it's time for honeymoon prep!

So I am embarking on http://rejuvenated.co.uk/be-skinny-drink-me

These are shake to replace your meal but it's not recommend to replace all your meal in one day.

I have been. On this for 1 week and replacing my breakfast and this has to be the most filling shake I have ever had.  I never feel hungry at lunch time.

I did a experiment on Friday, having breakfast cereal for Breakfast instead of my shake and I was starving by 11am. So I am totally loving this system.

And in one week I'm back in my size 10 jeans just need to get in to my 8s and I'm happy

Did I mention this is affordable to £17.50.
