I have no self-control!


Last night while cleaning out my cupboard, I stumbled across an unopened bottle of St Moriz Instant Self Tanning Mist. I bought this months ago and must have put it in the cupboard and forgot all about it. So out of sheer boredom I decided to apply it to see what it was like. I've used St Moriz mousse before and I do like it, I just have a problem with the consistency of it. I find that with each pump 75% of the formula will come out like mousse and the other 25% will be runny. So if you're anything like me, you just get into a mess! That's what puts me off the mousse.

Anyway, If you read my post on things I'm loving right now, you would have noticed that number 1 on my list was 'embracing my paleness', which has obviously went right out the window (naughty me!). I did try and justify it by saying that it was for fair to medium skintones - a lot lighter than I usually use, but lets face it I'm a lot darker than I naturally am and I'm already thinking about the next application...I'm hooked!

Personally, I think this may be my new favourite fake tan. The application was flawless and I have no patches, even my hands are fine!!

Have you tried St Moriz mousse or mist? Which do you prefer?

Long hair...oh how I miss you!!












It's been just over 3 months since I decided to have all my hair chopped off to achieve a hairstyle similar to Frankie Sandford (the Saturdays), and right now I'm really regretting it. At the time I did love it but deep down I always knew that I would probably regret doing it as growing it was going to be a long process and that it would be even harder since my hair is considerably shorter at one side! Usually my hair grows quite quickly and anytime I've had a bob I've been able to grow it out within about 6 months but just now my hair doesn't seem to be growing much at all and I have serious hair envy!!

Everytime I see someone with long hair I pine for my old hair! ha ha. Most people told me at the time not to do it but I thought my long hair was boring and I really wanted a change but I'm really bored with short hair, there's not really much you can do with. With long hair you have the option to curl, straighten, wave, wear it up, wear it down and if you're Cheryl Cole you can wear it like a bow if you desire! (Wasn't really a fan of that myself though)


At the moment I'm seriously considering hair extensions but I don't really know much about them. I had a quick look into them but there seems so many different ones to choose from and I don't know what would be best for my hair, or if my hair is even long enough to get them!
So as 2010 is coming to an end I can say I've learned one thing about myself - I do actually have my limits! I can 100% say that my hair will never be cut above my shoulders again. I tried it and I don't like it so by doing it I've learned something, and you know what they say; you'll never know if you like something till you've tried it.

Right now I'm loving...

Embracing my natural skin tone! - This is a big change for me, I hate the natural colour of my skin. I'm very, very pale and for the last 6 years I've been somewhat tanorexic (although I have only used a sunbed twice! Donatella Versace has put me off 'natural' tanning) and applying fake tan has been compulsory! However, I'm currently having problems with my skin and fake tan seems to be exacerbating it so as it's winter and I can cover up more, it seemed like the perfect time to wean myself off fake tan. Not sure how long this will last though, it's been quite a struggle so far!

Lipstick - I've not really been a fan of lipstick. To be honest...it scares me! I'm always worried that I'll think that a colour will look good when really people will be thinking 'What the hell is she wearing?' So I usually avoid it or I stick to colours that are the same as my natural lip colour - my perfect match is ELF mineral lipstick in 'nicely nude'. So to start off I've purchased 2 lipsticks from the Maybelline colorsensational range; the colours are 'Fatal red' and 'Delicate pearl' and I purchased 2 from the Rimmel Lasting Finish range in the colours 'Sweetie' and 'Asia'. I will do a review of these. If anyone has any recommendations, please let me know!

Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation - I've tried this twice before and wasn't impressed at all. It was one of those products that didn't live up to the expectations I had about it and I couldn't make it work at all so I gave it to my Mum, who happens to love it! She recently bought a bottle that was too light for her so she gave it to me. Due to embracing my paleness the only foundations I had that matched my skin were this and Chanel Vitalumiere - which I do love but the coverage is light and the state my skin is in at the moment that's a no-go! So I had to opt for maybelline dream satin and I have to say I'm quite impressed. It doesn't give me 'flawless' skin but the coverage is quite good, my skin looks smoother and it gives it a nice glow.

Online shopping - I actually always love online shopping but from November until January this becomes my only shopping outlet as I refuse to step foot in shops. People seem to go into psycho mode at this time of the year and I find going shopping really stressful; all manners seem to go out the window; people race you to get things and it's just really stressful and chaotic. I really don't get it. It seems to be like a competition to buy anything and people buy like it's going out of fashion.

Snow!!! - Today is the first day we've had snow so that explains why I'm loving it. By tomorrow I'll hate it but for today I'm definitely loving it! It's really starting to feel like Christmas even though it's still almost 4 weeks away! I've actually been wanting to put my Christmas tree up but I haven't...I'm not that mad! Honestly! :D

Twitter - I've had twitter for a while now but I've only recently kind of figured out how to use it...I'm still a complete novice! I love reading other people's tweets though, some of them are really funny. It's also really nice to get to know other bloggers better, although there are some bloggers I follow on twitter but can't find their blogs :( I'm starting to see why it can be addictive though!
