In Love With Fashion.

It's ALL about Miss Amy Childs..

Hi loves! I believe this is my last post of 2011 =0 This year has gone far too quick.. so many ups & downs, but mine is defo finishing on a positive note which is always good :)

I'll take this opportunity to THANK YOU for your support.. If you guys weren't supporting this blog I would've stopped ages ago. Thanks for the fab feedback. I LOVE YOU.. genuinely.

So.. recently i've been tuning into "It's All About Amy".. (Amy Childs) Comes on Channel 5 at 10pm!
I effin' love this girl. She makes me laugh, pure entertainment & she does it without putting it on!
She reminds me of so many friends & parts of her personality remind me of myself sometimes too!!
Just watched an episode where she has a chef teach her how to cook scrambled eggs. So weird, as my friends & I were discussing how I'm a good cook but for some reason can't cook (boil) rice or pasta or Pot noodles or cook scrambled egg.. I'm such a freak!

If you watched TOWIE, or Peter Andre/Kerry Katona/Katie Price's reality shows, this will be right up your street. I don't do soaps or any sitcoms really, Reality TV? Oh heeel yes! I adore reality shows!

I love Amy's style.. she has her own fashion line on her website too which is worth checking out! I'm so tempted to order a dress but I've stopped myself as i've spent a little too much already.. oopsie!

I hope you all have a love time tomorrow night & I really hope you get everything you want from the new year. Goodbye 2011!

Boot's Bargains!

HELLOOOOO!!! I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, can't believe it's over already. Back at work tomorrow, not feeling it at all! Still in a festive mood. So after all the Christmas celebrations, I came home, got myself onto the internet and HIT THE SALES! I've ordered a lot of stuff but I have reasons behind the mad spending.
I lost just over 2 stone this year so I don't really have many clothes that fit. I ordered lots of new jeans, tops  & jackets. SORTED!

Today, I hit the sales in town. I came back with a new memory foam mattress topper, its amazing & was half price too :) Woooo!!

I also got hold of these bargains too.

Fearne Cotton's range of make up brushes :)

There are 2 face brushes, 2 eye brushes & one lip brush (all double ended)
The design on them are gorgeous too.. from £16 to £8... BARGAIN!

Soap & Glory "Yum at Heart"

I am LOVING Soap & Glory at the moment! Got the Breakfast Scrub 300ml, Hand Food 125ml & an Apron (lol) all for £8.. another half price bargain!

I'm so happy with these bargains!! For £8 each you just can't go wrong.

Talking about Soap & Glory, I recieved this for Christmas, THANK YOU LENCIA!!
I only asked for the Sexy Mother Pucker gloss, but my lovely friend got me a set.

This set comes with Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss, A Body Mist, Brow Pencil/Highlighter & Lashes!! Retails at £20 but if you do get your hands on it now, it'll definitely be half price!

The lashes are gorgeous, I couldn't find any individual packs in Boots which is such a shame. I so hope they do boxes of lashes. Please let me know if they do!!
I love them!

Hope you liked the bargain post! :)

The Only Way is Desi.. LOVE IT!

Hi dolls! I jus spotted this online. The TOWIE girls Sam, Jess & Lucy look stunning on the cover of Asian Woman Magazine.
Lucy especially!

Indian outfits amaze me, the prices do too! Far too expensive, but wow, don't they just look gorgeous?

Sam Faiers x

Jess really suits this saree. Gorgeous.

GO LUCY! How beautiful does she look? Defo best till last!

What an amazing magazine cover. I'm absolutely loving it! As you know, I'm a MASSIVE Towie fan haha

Christmassy Times :)

1. What's your favorite Christmas Movie?

Wow! Ok, my favourite American movie has to be The Santa Clause.. & my favo British movie has to be Nativity! If you haven't watched any of them, make sure you do this Christmas. Oh & The SNOWMAN! That's not really a film and I should only choose ONE but I can't enjoy my Christmas if I haven't watched any of these films :)

The Snowman, CH4 on Christmas Eve has been a tradition since I was a kid! Gives me goosebumps! <3

2. Are you on the naughty list or the nice list?

I've had my moments of being a complete idiot this year, but I'd say i've been nice.

3.Show us an embarrasing Christmas card photo
I actually don't have one :( Will have to take one this year :)

4. Do you watch the Queen's speech?
Nope. I wish I could to be honest. I love the Queen. My house is a right madhouse round Christmas time as the whole family get together, sometimes up to 21 people, half of those being Kids!

5. Have you ever had a white Christmas?
I believe we have a few times actually. It's been lush! I like snow when you know you don't have to leave the house lol x

6. Where do you usually spend Christmas?
One year it'll be round mine, the next it'll be at my cousin's house. I love it! It's been like that since we were kids.. :)

7. What's your favorite Christmas song?
Ooo that's a tough one. One song never fails to give me goosebumps, just the first few seconds & I feel all Christmassy.. Mariah Carey.. All I want for Christmas :)
I also have a soft spot for Mistletoe by Justin Bieber which came out this year :)

8. What holiday tradition are you looking forward to most this year?
Me & the sissy always get up at 5am to check our stockings :P I know, i'm 22 but it's one tradition we keep. Makes Christmas 'magical'
We are starting a new tradition this year though. Got the idea from the Kardashians actually. Wearing matching Christmassy Pajama's on Christmas eve/Christmas day morning :) I think it's such a cute idea, so me, my sis & mum have the same ones hehe

9. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
I fail. haha my mentality is, as long as it's covered, who cares? It's what's on the inside that counts :P

10. What makes the holidays special for you?

Partying with my close friends & seeing old school friends in your hometown, always puts a smile on my face.
My family getting together, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents.. Love it!

Merry Christmas everyone. Love you all. Thanks for a great year!

Amazing, Just the Way You Are..

Yes! For once I'm actually dedicating a post to a MUSICIAN.
I usually dedicate posts to female celebrities who tend to inspire me. But, I was just sitting in my room listening to "It Will Rain" and I thought about this year.. 2011 has been fuelled by music from, the amazing BRUNO MARS.
I've put lots of links to my absolute favourite Bruno Mars tracks. It was so hard trying to pick a few.

Around January time, I purchased Bruno's album "Doo Wops & Hooligans," I've said this before & I'll say it again.. It's easily the BEST album i've ever bought! I got it when I was 21 so I absolutely LOVED the song Somewhere in Brooklyn. Had a bit of a personal feel to it.

Bruno Mars - Somewhere in Brooklyn

I was also going through a bit of a break up at that time too *boo hoo* it was the worst part of this year. So glad I got over it, The song "Talking to The Moon" was my "Feeling sorry for myself" track. It's beautiful.
It still leaves a lump in my throat when I listen to it now, it's crazy how music can take you back to certain times & places and still bring all those feelings back again. Have a listen if you haven't heard it, I'm sure most of you have but if you haven't, I so recommend it!

Talking to the Moon

March time, I went to an intimate gig in Birmingham to see him with a friend. Can't believe I got tickets, they'd Sold out within FIVE minutes. I felt on top of the world when they came through the post =)
We were so close. Ah! Take me back to that night anytime, I was so happy to be there. He honestly is a great, GREAT Talent.

My friend knew how much I was loving Bruno, so she tweeted me a link to a very funny interview. Jonathon Ross had interviewed Bruno when he was 4. He was an Elvis Impersonator lol It's the cutest thing ever. Watch THE LIP ;-)

During the Summer, Just the Way You Are was still playing non-stop on my I-Pod, The lyrics were constantly on my Facebook & BBM Statuses.
I think this song makes every girl smile. It's what we all look for in our boyfriends ay?

Just the Way You Are.

My sis & I absolutely ADORE the song LIQUOR STORE BLUES. Man! This song is such a pick up tune, It's one of those tracks you have to listen to when you've had a crap day at work or when something is just... pissing you off ha!

So catchy too!

My mum now has this album in her car, I cant wait for the new one. #favouritesongof2011 was a Trending Topic on Twitter last week. I obviously tweeted & without thinking twice.. I tweeted " #Favouritesongof2011 Bruno Mars - It Will Rain"

Just when you think this guy can't get any better, he releases something even better, EVERYTIME!
My little sister gets a little annoyed with me when it comes to this track. I'll put it on, then on again and again and again. I must repeat it atleast 15 times everytime I listen to it, It's just one of those tracks. I can't get enough! Also, the fact that it's the soundtrack for Breaking Dawn.. ah.. SCORE!

And also, I'm super JEL of the girl starring in this video (his best video to date in my opinion)
How sexy does he look? Damn Bruno!

Here it is guys, It will Rain. Gets so much LOVE from me.

Thank You, Bruno Mars. Your music has MADE my year!

To Plump or not to Plump? That is the question.

So, there is one thing that has been playing on my mind recently. Whether to have my lips injected or not lol
My friend, Chanelle recently had hers done & I LOVED em.
A few friends of mine are so against it so I thought OK, how about trying these Lip Plumping glosses. Back in the day, when I worked at House of Fraser I used to sell Too Faced products. I tried that Lip Injection gloss & ouch! It bloody hurt lol

I would love if my lips were fuller!
I've added a few photos of a few lip plumping glosses I have seen around the High Street. Please give me your opinions if you have ever used them OR if you use one I haven't put up on this post. I'm willing to give these glosses a go if they actually work!

1. Too Faced -Lip Injection £12
2. M & S Autograph Plumping Gloss £9.50

3. Bare Esscentuals - Buxom Lips £16.50

4. Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss, £10

Hope you guys can advise me on the best one :)

Contents of One's handbag..

Hey my darlings! I hope you're all well. Feel like I haven't been giving my blog much loving recently, so I have a new post tonight & another tomorrow :)

I recently asked my Twitter followers what post I should do.. I got feedback from some asking for me to do a post on what essentials are kept in my handbag. So, here I am, telling the world what I carry on an everyday basis!

Firstly, I always carry some sort of moisturiser in my bag, in this case I found MAC Strobe cream. With the Winter season it's always important to carry moisturising products as the skin dries out much quicker!
That takes me nicely onto my foundation..
 I sometimes go without foundation and just pop some moisturiser on instead. But on the days I use foundation, I use the tiniest amount as MAC's Studio Sculpt foundation is quite thick. It's a brilliant moisturising foundation, I love it. Gives the skin a great glow :) Always great to re apply about 5-6 hours after first application.

Lastly, I always carry my MAC skin finish. Adds nice colour to your face when you forget to wear a blush or even a foundation. Love it!

I always carry a mascara on me, I'm not the biggest fan of this new one by No7 but it's fine for that everyday look.
I carry Carmex in my bag too, Carmex or Vaseline. I'm not fussed. Providing I have some sort of lip balm on, I'm happy. Again, in this weather your skin will dry out lots so its very important to re-apply moisturisers and lip balms. VERY IMPORTANT! I'm such a believer in moisturising regularly! & Lastly, I like to carry a neutral lipstick. I always have one "just in case" For example: Just in case you end up making spontanious plans, atleast you know you can go from simple to someone whose made a little effort within minutes!

One last important MUST have.. Perfume! I adore perfume as a lot of you will know. I won't leave my house without a spray or two ;-)
Lady Million is the GODMOTHER of all perfumes hehe my fave!

Hope you liked this post. Just a quick CONGRATULATIONS to Lucy aka @lucyyr20. You won the MAC/Christmas giveaway.
I will hold another giveaway when I reach 100 Facebook Followers! I'm on 80 at the moment. 100 would be a great achievement. Will let you know when I get there :-)

Also, just wanted everyone to see this as it put a MASSIVE smile on my face & I even chuckled like a hyena lol This is for all my lovelies that have worked hard ALL day and need a smile on their faces..
YEP! It's Alan Carr as Jodie Marsh pahaha!!!!

Skin Therapy.. The UnLeeshd Way.

Hi dolls! I've been meaning to write this post for a little while now. Thank you to those that have mentioned my "Clear Skin" I hope after this post I don't jinx myself and end up with Adult Acne etc lol *CROSSED FINGERS*

I am lucky enough to say that during my teenage years I never suffered from "Teenage spots"
Only downside to that is, everytime I get even the tiniest of spots I Panic! ha & also I always feel like I might get em really late (Really hope I don't.)

There are a few things I do to keep my skin healthy. Best of all is they are all the most simplest tips which I'm sure you have all heard before but never the less, I'll write em anyway =)

1. I don't use any other soap other than "Honey, I washed the Kids" from Lush Cosmetics. It's a very soft soap which does the cleaning without drying the skin out. Honey, naturally is a moisturiser so it's good for your skin. As well as that, it smells gorgeous!

2. After washing my face, I moisturise VERY liberally. Using ASTRAL moisturiser (Purchase it in Superdrug/Boots) It's very affordable & lasts ages. My nan used this cream when she moved to England, She used it on all of her daughters (inc my mum) & Mum has used it on all of us. If any of you guys saw my nan, or my mum you wouldn't think they had a Grandaughter/Daughter of 22 years old. It's fabulous. Throughout this blog, I have always mentioned and recommended this cream. I think it's played a massive part in how clear my skin is.

3. Water. I gave up fizzy drinks when I was a teenager. I do drink fizz on a night out and special occasions. But on a day to day basis, I always drink Water & Cordial. Also, I believe a lot of caffeine makes your skin look haggered, so i've cut down majorly because i'm a TEA O'holic. I drink one cup of normal tea a day & the rest are herbal teas :)

4. I stay away from all those highly scented lotions & creams, I just think they are loaded with so much rubbish. The only scented cosmetic companies I've ever trusted are The Body Shop & Lush. (There are many more decent stores, these are just the 2 I shop at.)

5. Lastly, I tend to use foundations that are moisturising, & at the end of the day I always wash it off!

I hope my skin carries on being nice & clear & I hope these tips help if you have spots/blemishes. It's worth a go.

MAC Zoom Lash Mascara.. REVIEW!

Hey dolls.
The post before the Giveaway I talked about how i'd treated myself to a few bits from MAC :) had to be done really ;-)

They sent a sample of this Mascara. Gotta admit, I quite like it. I'm a bit stubborn and tend to use the same Mscara 'Falsies' again & again. I have tried others, like the one by No7 but I just don't see much of a difference. My lashes are naturally quite long but I like the 'fake' eyelash look. So, I'm happy with anything that makes them volumise and look darker.

I love the texture of this mascara, it really is very smooth and glides on really well. It's quite a thick, waxy type mascara which is nice if you like thick mascaras. The reason why i really like this mascara is the shade of black. Oh my gosh, it's JET black, THAT is what I like in a mascara, & it lasts ages! So guess it pretty much does everything it describes to do..

This is what it looks like on..

Two coats

This retails at £13.40 & comes in 4 colours. I'd give it a whirl if you're willing to spend that much. Even the high street mascara's are about £10 these days, so the price actually isn't bad at all considering its by MAC.

MAC Perfection.. FOTD

Hey lovies :) I hope you're all well. Finally got round to posting. I've been looking for a new MAC foundation for a little while.
The last MAC foundation I wore was Face & Body (C5) Which was lovely & lasted me ages BUT it was slightly too thin for me.

The nearest place for me to buy MAC cosmetics is in MK.
I've been so busy with the new job, I haven't really had the time to take a trip. So i decided to be a little brave and just order the shade I thought would look good on me..
Just before I added a Foundation to my Online Shopping Basket, I saw that MAC offer a chat service to talk to an advisor :) So I gave it a go..
I spoke to a lovely lady named Danni. She is an absolute genius. I emailed her a couple pics of myself so she could choose the right shade for me.. She picked all the right stuff.. THANK YOU!
It's always such a big risk when you can't try the shades on, so I was so relieved to know that I hadn't wasted my money.

I ended up buying:
Strobe Cream "de-snoozes, de-stresses, moistens, freshens and boosts the look of dull, flat or tired-looking skin" - £12/30ml

I've only used it twice now but I do like it so far.. it's left my skin feeling smooth and fresh all day. So far, so good. Only bad point is I wish the tube was a little bigger.

Studio Sculpt Foundation  (SPF 15) in (NC42)  "Hydrating, instantly revitalizes the skin while keeping it looking smooth, soft and plush" £23

I've got to admit, definitely what I was looking for in a Foundation & it does everything it describes. This foundation is very thick so you only need a little bit if you only want Medium coverage but you can easily build to make it thicker. Love it :)

Mineralize Skin Finish (Medium/Dark) "Provides perfect low coverage. Use to set and fix foundation or as a touch-up throughout the day." £18.50

This is a great skin finish, looks very light coloured considering its for Medium/Dark skin but It works so well. I already use the Limited Edition Mineralize Skin Finish "Sunny By Nature" So again, I'm chuffed.

I treated myself to these MAC bits for Christmas :) Money well spent I think!

P.S. Keep an eye out for my Christmas Giveaway.. COMING SOON!

Breaking Dawn.. Fashion!

Hi my loves. I HAD to dedicate atleast ONE post to BREAKING DAWN which is out this week Friday. Oh my gosh, I get goosebumps at the thought of watching it haha I can't bloody wait :-))))

Just spotted a photo from the Premiere.. Couldn't believe just how stunning Kristen Stewart looked. I really love the Roberto Cavalli dress, her hair, styling.. just stunning!

What do you guys think? Are you as excited as I am about this movie? lol

Love you but not Left you..

Hey my darlings, Jus realised it's coming up to nearly two weeks of no blogging. I feel like a right waste ha!

Instead of Tweeting or Facebooking, I thought to just write a post to tell you I've not stopped blogging.
I've just been super dooper busy.
Started a new job last Monday (YAY! Finally 2 years later I've found a full-time job related to my Degree!) I'm just trying to find my feet. Lots of paper work to do, Once I'm a little more settled & chilled out I can get back on the blogging. I have some major catching up to do =)

Till death do us part..

"I take you ...To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, to love and to cherish 'till death do us part. And hereto I pledge you my faithfulness."

Call me old fashioned, but when I hear or read this, it makes me feel like i'm on "Cloud 9". These words mean a lot to me.
I've not said them yet, and I'm not planning on getting married anytime soon. But, when I do.. I will mean every single word.
I spend every Tuesday watching "Don't tell the Bride" on BBC 3 as it is my favourite show lol
Anything to do with getting married.. I'll be there or i'm watching it (Sounds a little sad ay! ha!)

So, when I hear stories in the media not only about Celebrities, but normal citizens getting married and then divorcing a few weeks or months later. Depending on the circumstances, It really bugs me.
It bugs me because I just think people give up too easy.

Maybe it's because I am a hopeless romantic or maybe it's because my parents, grandparents, aunt's & uncles have remained together with their partners since they got married (We're talking marriages that have lasted over 30 odd years and still going strong)
I don't think there is anything wrong in separating, but for good enough reason. Some people break up over the tiniest, most rediculous things.. that's when I get annoyed.

I'm sure most people know what story in the media has inpired this post, but I feel like people just don't believe in the Sanctity of Marriage anymore.. Am I Wrong?

I had a bit of a rant on my Twitter about this subject as it's very close to my heart. It's as though some people just want a Wedding, not a Marriage.

What are your thoughts?

Minnie's Boutique..

Hi loves. I'd been meaning to shop on Minnie's Boutique's website since it launched but hadn't had the time. (minnies-boutique)
Sunday night I was watching TOWIE and I spotted Sam wearing a really cute jumper.
I'm the type of person to just buy clothes and general bits because I need to get em not because I necessarily LOVE what i'm buying.
So when I rarely see something I actually love.. I HAVE to buy it. I literally saw it, & during the break I went straight onto their site and ordered it hehe

 It's super cute, even has a velvet bow on bottom of each sleeve.
£39. Love Lock Knit (Nude) Also comes in Black & Red :)
I love this jumper looks great with skinny jeans (not my hideous trackie bottoms lol ) & a gorge pair of boots.

Have any of you bought anything off Minnie's Boutique's site yet?

Happy Diwali.. & Random Talk..

Just wanted to write up a quick post to say HAPPY DIWALI to all my lovely readers. I really hope the New Year brings you good Health, Wealth, Love & Happiness.

I just love it this time of yearrrrr *DJ PAULY D VOICE*. I'm off to my aunt's now for lots of Indian food & a night of fireworks :) Perfect way to end my day off from work hehe

My morning was so rubbish, The NHS worries me.. bigtime! I went to the hospital to have a few blood tests done & the nurse was TELLING me I had an appointment to see the Dentist..(Erm.. No & what was she trying to imply lol I have the straightest natural teeth ever)
They make you feel so safe in that place.. not! lol

Ha.. Anyway, I made up for it by treating myself to tickets to see THE BACKSTREET BOYS!!!!! I've been wanting to see these guys since I was a kid. Was such a big fan of them & N*sync. It's one of those things you just HAVE to go to, doesn't matter how much it costs or where it is & I can't wait.

To end this post I thought I'd add a link to my favourite BSB track.. Enjoy.

Leesh's favo BSB song x
