Bring On 2011!!



Personally 2010 hasn't been a great year for me and I can't wait to see the back of it. It wasn't actually a bad year either...it was just a bit 'blah'...if you know what I mean? It was really uneventful and I didn't accomplish what I had planned so I'm looking forward to a new year and a new start and I do have a feeling though that 2011 is going to be a lot better! :)

Last year I had a long list of resolutions and goals (which I do every year). 2010 has been my worst year for sticking to them, I done nothing! So this year I've decided I'm not making any resolutions. I will make small goals which I would like to work towards achieving. This is more likely to be successful for me! What about you? What are your resolutions and goals?

I hope you all have a wonderful New Year. Where ever you are keep safe & warm and remember - Start to start your year the way you want it to go on!!

And lastly, to everyone who has subscribed, commented and read this blog - It means a lot and I'll see you all in 2011!!

Katy Perry with no make up!!

(Source: www.hollywoodlife.com)

I have to say I was shocked and relieved when I saw this picture on twitter. It turns out that the gorgeous Katy Perry is human after all! I don't really think it looks like her though!

The usually Flawless Katy Perry


I think it's safe to say that hubby Russell Brand will be in the dog house after posting this picture of Make up free Katy on twitter earlier on. After all no woman likes to be pictured au naturale, especially not for the whole world to see. He did take it down just as quickly as he put it up. Still it was long enough for it to do it's rounds!

Gapped Teeth - Yes or no?!

Gap tooth beauties...






That's right 2010 became the year that having a gap between your two front teeth - or a diastema, which is the proper term, became in vogue, literally - Check it out here. Meaning that for the first time in my life I was ahead of a trend :) Should note that mine is natural and I wasn't one of the crazy few who actually had a gap made due to this trend!

I've been very self-conscious of the gap between my teeth from a very young age...being nicknamed Madonna didn't help matters. In fact, I'm still very much aware of my gap now and very rarely will I show my teeth in photos and so ironically this year I went to my dentist about having my gap closed. I was told that I had 2 options; I could have the gap filled or I could have veneers fitted although I was advised against the later as they're not recommended for healthy teeth. So for £100 a flaw (one of many) which I'm insecure about could be corrected. What was interesting though was that when I enquired about teeth whitening I was told I didn't need it - I do! It made me wonder then why he thought closing the gap seemed necessary? Perhaps I read too much into it, but it didn't help matters lol.

My Gap...

It's been 6 months since I went to see about having it closed and I still haven't taken the plunge. To be honest, as much as I hate I'm scared to lose it. I worry that I'll hate the look of my teeth when it's done; that they will look stupid; and I'm worried about losing something that makes me uniquely me. I have decided though that 2011 will be the year I make a decision once and for all and when I've made my decision that will be the end of it!

So what do you guys think of the gap tooth trend? and most importantly, what would you do if you had one? Embrace it or get rid?

Finally got my Soap & Glory tote!

Last week I wrote a post about the Soap & Glory tote that boots had reduced from £60 to £25, I finally got my hands on mine yesterday...





...and I love it!!

I had it delivered to my local boots store, which was a big mistake as I didn't realise it would be so big. Trying to navigate my way through (mostly rude) shoppers with a huge box and bags of Christmas shopping was actually a challenge! I did manage to get it home in one piece though :) (phew!)

I really can't wait to try 'Scrub Your Nose In It' as I've never used it before and I have quite large pores on my face - Nothing seems to help the pores on my nose at all! So I'm hoping this will help.



One thing I would definitely recommend from Soap & Glory though is the Giant Super Sudsy Shower Puff!



I can't really explain why I love the Soap & Glory ones, apart from the fact they're huge! I just do! They're the only shower puffs I now use. Now I have a nice pink one to go with the others (which are white).

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas! Xx

Serious Style Envy!

(Source: Google)

Last week I was reading Glamour, can't for the life of me remember if it was a recent issue or not, and I noticed this picture of Rachel Bilson. I think she looks fabulous here. I love her hair, make-up, the shoes, the top and yes...even the leather shorts!

I'm not usually a fan of leather shorts but I love how this delicate Vanessa Bruno top makes the look more feminine, balancing the 'edgy' look of the shorts and the open-toe Maison Margiela heels resulting in a really cute look that is far more wearable.

I'm now developing fascination about leather shorts. I would never wear them, I couldn't pull them off in million years, but I'm curious how other people wear theirs. So I'm off to look for fashion blogs! :)

One Of My Favourite Things About Christmas


(Pinched from youtube)

I absolutely love this song and every December I look forward to hearing it for the millionth time! I honestly don't think I'll ever tire of hearing it at Christmas, although my Dad assures me that I eventually will. I don't think there's another Christmas song that comes close. Well Otis Redding's cover of White Christmas Is pretty special (and I am biased when it comes to Otis Redding) but it's never played!!

Hope everyone is getting into the Christmas Spirit!! xx
