In Love With Fashion.

Benefit.. Boi-ing.

Happy Thursday Evening People!!! Yes, It's bloody Friday tomorrow and I can't wait. I have a 1 hour 45 min day (random! ha) and then I'm off for the rest of the day.. happy times.

Onto this Benefit concealer, Boi-ing.. who has this?

I'm not the biggest fan of this at the moment, so I just want your opinions and even techniques, How do you choose to apply this concealer, How has it been on your skin?
I've read some good reviews on this stuff, hence why I bought it but for some reason, it makes my skin look worse by highlighting the bad areas instead of 'concealing'
It also has a tendency to dry my skin out too.

Before I slate this product, I thought i'd give it a chance by asking for your opinions and techniques, try it out again and see how I feel.

Nails of the Month.. FESTIVE!

Happy Sunday my loves!
Had my nails re-done yesterday.. From black & blue glitter to this..

Seeing as the festive season is upon us, I thought I'd go for the red & gold.
I have my work Christmas party next week so I needed to add a little Christmas sparkle :)

Bourjois Kohl Kajal Eyeliner.

Are you a complete sucker for eyeliners? I'M GUILTY of this.
The first make up I ever wore as a teen was a Rimmel black eye pencil. I used it and WOW, what a difference it made!
It's one make-up product I could never live without. I think Eyeliners are simple and cheap but they seem to make such a difference.
On a personal note, my face looks so much fresher and brighter when I put eyeliner on.
I bought this eyeliner a couple days ago.. and I'm in love already!

This retails at £6.99 in Superdrug.
The packaging is so cute and different.
The eyeliner itself is cone shaped for a simple and easy application. I love the look of this eyeliner, YES! the shape did make me buy this product. The intense black is beautiful for a nice smokey eye. It has a waxy feel which makes it brilliant for blending.

One of the best eyeliners I've ever bought. I've been wearing this on my top and bottom eyeline. I love that dark cleopatra look.
Does this product appeal to you?

Contour addict.

I'm slightly obsessed with Contouring at the moment. It makes such a difference to your facial shape.
I had no idea how much of a difference it made until I started contouring myself.
I'm still a NOOB when it comes to contouring. I use a Collection 2000 concealer and Hoola by Benefit for contouring at the moment. I would love some recommendations on other products that are worth buying.
Get in touch :) @UnLeeshd on Twitter or just a little message on here!

Thanks beauts!

Happy and Healthy

Hello my darlings.
I've been looking to do this post for a few months but I feel really sensitive about this subject.
From the ages of 15-21 I all of a sudden went from being stupidly underweight to overweight for my age.
I ate like any other child when I was little but I never put on any weight, the second mother nature decided I was ready for a present every month.. everything I ate, I put on double the weight.
I'd eat a grape and put on 10lbs lol ok ok slight exaggeration.

Anyway, I got carried away with my portion size and comfort ate a lot. Hormonal times!!

After a good 5 or so years of feeling unconfident and very unhappy.
I decided to do something about it!
It took me a while to get into it but something just clicked last year and that was it. Turning point.
The first photo below, doesn't really show how big I was, but I was a size 14-16 here.
I remember going to Boots and weighing myself on those machines. I was Overweight for my height.. 11st 2lb.. & had a crap BMI. 
I used to be disgusted about my weight. For such a young woman, I should be active, I should be able to go into a clothing store, pick up an outfit and try it on without feeling embarassed that it probably won't fit.
I refused to buy a Size 16 outfit so the second I realised size 14's were getting too tight. I had to do something about it.

Weight Loss.

I've mentioned my weight loss before & for those who KNOW me..
I do NOT believe in "diets" that word pisses me off *language Leesh!* & so do people who use it on a daily "I need to go on a diet!"
NO! you do not. Diet in everyone's head only means you have to deprive yourself of stuff you love. DON'T!

  • Change your portion size, make it smaller.
  • Eat frequently & whatever you like.. try to balance it out a little
  • The second you're full.. STOP (Paul McKenna tip)
  • Drink enough water
I took up walking, lots of walking! I finally got active enough to want to go to the gym.
I went to the gym 2-3 times a week but if I couldn't be bothered, I walked.
I'd meet up with a friend but purposely meet at a pub furthest away from my house so I'd be burning more.
You don't have to go to the gym and go on silly diets to lose weight. If you do go on silly diets, you'll find the minute you start eating normally again, you'll put weight on!
June 2010

ANYWAY, this is me now.. a healthy 9st 7lbs. And I couldn't be happier. I eat like a pig! I've noticed I eat smaller portions but get hungry quicker.
My metabolism is amazing now as oppose to before. I've never been so confident (as you can tell from Instagram, Twitter, FB) I take photos of myself a lot.. not because I love myself ha but because I'm PROUD!
I've had too many years of feeling crap about myself.. NO MORE!
If I can do it.. you can too :)
I never ever used to even look at dresses because I had zero confidence.. I buy dresses every month now.. I think I own more dresses now that I do jeans and tops lol
I'm happy & healthy.

It took me a while to get an old pic up but it had to be done one day!

What I would wear..

Hi my loves. So have set bloggers a little task of finding a killer outfit for less than £100.

Enter here:

This is what I've chosen. Funnily enough, I've been thinking to buy this dress for one of my christmas parties.
I like it so much I'm including it on this too. I am the biggest fan of prom type dresses.
This type of dress is perfect for my weird, curvy yet slim yet slim yet curvy figure lol
You can NEVER go wrong with an LBD! They are sexy yet classy, always!

Upto 30% off £45
I'll be wearing this with signature shoes. Something different to the dress. I personally love Black & Gold together. So I would kit this dress with all gold accesories.
£25 Pixie platforms

Lastly, all I'd need now was a gorgeous, classy bag..

£16 Quilted lock across bag
This whole outfit comes to £86 and that is without taking off the discount you'd get from the dress :) YOU ARE WELCOME! ;-)
This whole oufit is from ASOS.COM!
Pop a little red lippie and red nail polish on. Smokey eyes and you're good to go :)

Dear Santa.. I think I deserve these!

Christmas for me is my favourite time of year, not only is it a beautiful religious event, but the magical feel you get is indescribable.
I am still such a big kid at Christmas. I wake up at 5/6am with my little sister to check our stockings lol I still get super excited! It's crazy.

There's a few things I really want this year though & I so hope I get them too ;-)

The Kardashian girlies recently released their Kollection here in the UK in SOME Dorothy Perkins stores.

Sequin & Glitzy clothing & accesories are my "thing" at the moment so I want this for all those Christmas parties I'll be attending this year.
£ 30 - Dorothy Perkins
I love Tan bags. Unfortunately, I cannot afford a big, Hermes tan burkin bag just yet, but this will definitely do. One thing I always look for in handbags is a handle like this one.. rounded and quite hard. I don't own any bags without this sort of strap. The Kardashian girls have got it spot on!
£55 - Dorothy Perkins

Ha & lets face it.. a girl can dream ;-) Louboutins could just about fit into my stocking, Santa baby!

What's on your Christmas wishlist?

Lets hit FD Avenue.

Hi my loves! I am SUPER addicted to bargain fashion. Especially since I'm trying to get rid of all of my larger sized clothing and slowly trying to replace it with smaller sizes, YAY!
Doing this has made me look into other brands and shop elsewhere.
About a year ago I came across Funky divaa.. now known as FD AVENUE!

Half of my wardrobe is full of their clothing. From Dresses to Cardigans to Casual tops. I'm a big fan of their stuff & it's so affordable too.
They always have discounts for their Twitter followers which is always a plus!

The link to FD Avenue.
I recently ordered 3 pieces from these guys. One of the dresses I ordered had sequins falling off, and instead of selling it to me anyway, they left a voicemail saying they didn't want to send me something of bad quality. I think this is such great customer service which makes me love this brand even more.

I think this dress is next on my list!

Thank you FD Avenue for a great service!
Use the code "ALISHA15" to get yourself 15% off :)

Nails of the month.

Yes.. month lol I got Gels again. I'm an addict, when will I ever learn? Fake nails always mess my natural nails up yet I get them done again & again & again!
I abolutely love these. Black & Teal/Turquoise is my favourite combo.

Have a fabulous weekend, my loves.
