Microdermabrasion - THE answer to clear skin!

Me and my skin have a love/hate relationship sometimes it is fine just the odd blemish nothing a bit of concealer cant fix....but sometimes I get horrible spots espcially on my chin and I just feel uurrgg when I have spots, I would kill for flawless skin............

So last week I went for a Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion, this is a type of exfoliation and apprently is loved by celebs who regularly have this done. They recommend about 10 sessions every few weeks to get the maximum benefits but even after my first session all I can say is.....WOW I love my skin!!!

The treatment privides immediate visible results for ageing skin, lines and wrinkles, open pores, blackheads, pigmentation, blemish scars, acne scars, stretch marks and much much more!

The treatment involves a small 'pen-like' exfoliator which is used all over the face like a small vacuum, it didnt hurt, just felt like sandpaper rubbing my skin!

I paid 25 pound for one treatment and I am definately booking in for more before christmas, my skin has never felt so soft and smooth and it just 'glowed' friends even commented on how good my skin looked. Since I had my first treatment I havent had any spots and my skin is still silky smooth with much smaller pores and I even feel confident going out without make up (now that is a first for me!) The day after, my make up just glided on my skin and lasted alllllll day it looked perfect! Apprently Alex Curren has microdermabrasion before any big nights out as it helps her make up stay put!!

So girls if you are fed up with your skin give this a try I promise you flawless skin is within your reach...I shall keep you updated on my next session I cant wait to go again! Crystal Clear is available in a number of beauty salons check out for your nearest salon offering the treatment.

Have a gorgeous weekend!

Ins and Outs!

I love these posts and seeing as i've not blogged for a while thought would kick the week off with this!


  • MAC studio Tech foundation in NC35, love how easy this is to use and is perfect for putting in my bag for touch up during the day
  • Threading - I got my eyebrows threaded and I love it, why have I not done this sooner? My eyebrows are so much more defined and not a hair in sight!
  • MAC Penultimate eyeliner - this eyeliner is perfect for winging out your liner, it it like a thick black pen for your eyes so easy to draw on
  • Birthdays - the 2 week countdown to my birthday is on! I love birthdays and top of my present list is Coco Madamesoille, Victor and Rolf Flowerbomb and a few palettes from Benefit that I have had my eye on!
  • I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here - still not won over by Jordan, why did she decide to go back on?? never a good career decision just look what happened when Jade Goody whent back on Big Brother its never gonna be a good idea! But I cant get enough of this programme haha!


  • Red Lipstick - I have been trying to find a red shade to suit me but I just cant seem to make any red suit my olive complexion any help please???
  • Sambuca - we have had a serious falling out after my hangover yesterday!
  • Migraines - urrgg I suffer with bad migraines and had a horrible one last week all day in pain not good!
  • ASOS - I have been a loyal customer to ASOS for years and years but last week I bought a sequin top for 60 quid (!) thinking it would be perfect for the xmas season to dress up jeans but when it arived the quality was horrible it looked like it cost a tenner from a market stall def not 60 quid! So i complained and the lovely people at ASOS have apologised and gived me my own discount code next time I order from them so hurray for a happy ending!

Freebie Alert!!

Just in case you havent noticed but this months Glamour Magazine (with Leighton Meester on the front) comes with a free nails Inc nail varnish worth ten quid!

There are 4 colours to choose from, I got Elizabeth Street, a gorgeous creamy light pink colour, which I thought would work well as a base to my usual french manicure! I loved the other colours too and was torn between this and a lovely hot pink colour but as I cant wear bright colours for my job (or nail varnish in general really but I always seem to get away with a french manicure!) I decided that I would get the most use out of Elizabeth Street!

So go grab yourself a hot new nail polish for only 2 quid! Let me know what colours you all get!!

Lollipop Loving....

No this isn't a reference to Lollipop26's blog (although I do love reading her blog!) but its my new MAC lipstick which I have fallen in love with, so introducing ........Lollipop Loving....
It is a glaze lipstick, it is actually quite similar to Maybellines Ambre Rose but this has more golden undertones and a nice golden glaze finish on your lips which can be seen from the photo below! I wore this last night and loved the look, perfect for complimenting your skintone and I think 'enhances' your glow due to the golden glaze effect!
I would of done a FOTD but I'm a hangover mess today :(
Although I also purchased Revlon Colourstay foundation after reading so many good reviews on it and have used it for the first time today and even though I am feeling a tad rough this foundation is looking ok! So I will see how it gets on with me during the week!

Top 7 budget buys!!!

I have seen this idea on a few blogs now and I love to see what fellow bargins fellow bloggers rate so I can decide if its worth a try! So here is my top 7 must have bargins.....

From left to right are:

  1. Maybelline Pulse perfection Mascara - this is amazing I cant believe how much it lengthens my lashes! After daily use for a good few months now this is still going strong this is definately my HG of mascaras!!
  2. This is a black eyeshadow with silver flecks in and is actually from H&M for about £2.99 and I love creating a smoky eye with this, I also have used it as a liner with a pale grey all over my lid then using a liner brush, line my upper and lower lash line, it creates a soft, sultry smoky eye that doesn't look too 'done'
  3. James Brown Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner - this is also my HG of shampoo and conditioner! I have the finest hair in the world and I love volume and lots of it when I go out! When I use this I can literally feel my hair becoming thicker when I lather it in it is amazing!
  4. Maybelline Colour Sensation Lipstick in Amber Rose - Since I got this it has never been off my lips!! This is the perfect colour for most skin tones it seems to brighten up my complexion as soon as I apply it!
  5. Barry M Dazzle Dust in 22 Black Gold - I love dazzle dusts! This one is also perfect for creating a smoky eye, it is blackest black with gold flecks in it and I tend to use it in the crease of my eye and along my lash line when I'm creating a strong bold smokey eye!
  6. Tresemee 24 hour Volume Hairspray - This holds my volume (when I eventually achieve it after lots of velco rollers!) and keeps the volume all night! I wish I could say the same for the other products in Treseme 24 hour volume line but I cant - I didnt rate the shampoo and conditioner very much - not much volume achieved!!
  7. Neutrogena Make Up Remover - Perfect for removing every last once of make up whilst being kind to your skin...perfect!!

If anyone else has there own top beauty bargins let me know so I can try them out hehe!!


Love Is......

.....An amazing new pair of and a diamond at first sight!
