Picture Party Perfect (save whilst being social)

8/22/2013

So its that time of year again where nearly all of your friends have their birthdays and there's events popping all over the place, you search in your wardrobe to see what to wear and notice that the last set of Facebook photos you had, you had the dress on your planning to wear. Being a bit of a dress snob like I am I never like people to see me in the same dress over two months (that's if I was out every weekend) so usually I am one to buy a new dress every time I go out, however this can be mega expensive if nearly every weekend is party time.
There are loads of stores out there that do cheap yet amazing (quantity can affect quality) dresses that can be worn once then left for a while until everyone has forgotten about them.

BooHoo
BooHoo is the on the edgier side of brands, they have a glamourous selection but its casual glamour, which is great if the event is just an evening out with cocktails at the local bar/lounge or meeting up with the boyfriend and his family

Misguided
Misguided is a bit more on the glamorous side, and with misguided fashion you can easily rival the style of the TOWIE or Geordie Shore girls. Misguided fashions are more for a full night out in a northern city like Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield, Liverpool or Newcastle, with the correct accessories, the dress can definitely have "pulling power".


Etto
Etto stands for each to their own and the founder Alexander Christopher is from my home town, the style is very edgy, its much more desperate scousewives meets the L word and if your a lover of moshino, all saints, and vivviene westwood's red collection you are sure to love their style. Its more on the pricier side than the other brands mentioned but because there designs are so unique its easier to get away with cheaper jewellry and cheaper shoes.

Jewelry 

Ebay
Ebay has some cracking bargain finds with chokers and bracelets for as little as 99p, its not hard to find some tin to tide you over your party season, and its not important that its not real gold or silver as costume jewelry has stepped forward in terms of fashion in recent years and left its finer counterparts in the back waiting for a special occasion (wedding, christening, engagement party).
Vintage stores
Every city has one and now towns are riding the vintage train, if you handy with a pair of pliers and you can get to a hobbycraft there's no need to splash major cash on something delicate when someone could be wishing to part with theirs. If it has a broken clasp, this is great opportunity to haggle and your wrists could be draped with finery for a fraction of a tiffany or a pandora.
Second hand Shops
Oxfam or British Heart Foundation is a treasure trove of someones trash or your treasure depending on your viewpoint, get rumaging, you might find the genies lamp in there if you willing to put your hareems on!

Well these are my tips darlings to be a savvy shopper with dress snobbery if your schedule is party poppin', no need to get financial aid for your social forthcoming's, all you have to do is go cheaper on the dress and amp up the jewelry volume. Think basic bodies and limb bling.

Workouts and Weightloss Wednesday Ft Tilly WK 4

8/12/2013

Sorry about my tardiness with this post last week, as #wwwednesday happened Thursday, but I am back on, last week I had mentioned that I had been to the gym with a male friend of mine and I urged Tilly to do the same, so I am so intrigued to figure out how she did!
I loved the gym time, but what I hated/loved was the soreness that it brought, after the first two days the pain of straightening my right arm was unbearably painful, after the pain subsided, my arms felt like they could lift anything, super strong and easy.

Lets fill you in on how my week of food has gone!

My appetite has practically diminished and since my last weigh in I am now 124.lb which is a loss of 8lbs which is half a stone, I feel lighter, I also feel a tad sexier, but that may be due to a new love interest that has entered my life, or he may have entrered it because I'm feeling sexier, its a catch 22 argument. 
Thank you for following along, and sorry for the late upload, I've had so many things on my mind at the moment and I'm studying for an exam so bare with me. Ta Ta.

CrownBrush Unboxing & Review

8/02/2013

CrownBrush is a colour company that specialise in pigment, previous to their cosmetic experience they have background in paint for both house/interior/ exterior and art, which is why they are fantastic when it comes to colour theory, colour shades and obviously brushes. I made a purchase from them and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the goods.
Heres a video on my initial thoughts of unboxing and first thoughs so you can see the reaction on my face when opening up the parcels.

What I recieved in my package was:
HD SET 
Professional 78 Palette
C405 contour
Dome Shadow Brush
C160 1/8 Angle
C409 Angle
C124 Firm Shadow

Delivery Time 
In the video I mentioned that I ordered on friday, and when I got home the saturday night as I work over the weekend I have a "oops we missed you" card on the doormat waiting for me, which in my eyes I though that is fantastic, as soon as I could get on the computer again which was sunday night I rearranged my delivery for wednesday and it came at 10/11am which was nice because I didn't have an obnoxious post man waking me by coming really early. The delivery was signed for as well which gives you that insurance that when you get it, its yours, and if it does go missing you can work out who has got it.
10/10 for Delivery

Packaging
In the video I also mentioned how immaculately wrapped it is, its so secure I did have difficulty getting into box two. 

Overall thoughts
Loved everything I bought, I have tried the contour brush since making the video, and have to say its so soft and great a picking up the colour, the firm shadow brush too is good as it has a point on the end of precise application of colour.

Thank you very much for reading guys, if you watched the video and liked it please leave a comment either on the YT page or this post, you can follow me on BlogLovin, GFC or Google+. Ta Ta Darlings.

Workouts and Weightloss Wednesday Ft Tilly WK 3

8/01/2013


This week has been up and down, because there has been days that have gone over and days that I've simply been uninterested by food, take Tuesday for example, I had had only a BLT for breakfast, and then was at the gym from 5 till 9pm and didn't get home till 10:30, although I was planning to eat the dinner my mum had saved for me, I slept at my grandma's and realised the next day I had hardly eaten anything.

WORKING OUT
I did a workout with my best boy mate, on Tuesday and really really pushed ourselves, we knew counting and struggling in front of each other would break the embarrassment down and soon enough we had done over 10 reps of weights. Weights are my most favourite exercise, the kind of "grrrr" feeling you get when you've pushed your last rep out, and you could collapse, is great. It's invigorating.

After the workout, I have felt some enormous pain my right arm, all over my bicep, so it's really difficult to manoover everyday, when your doing weights above what you typically can lift, you need someone to watch your movement to make sure you don't hurt yourself, I don't think it was my form that was off, I think it was down to the fact that I was lifting weights I have never been able to before simple because of the sheer determination that my friend would catch it if I lost the load.
I would recommend going to the gym with a boyfriend or just male mate, because they know what they are doing and can catch the weight.

RESULTS
Last week I was 131 lbs I'm now 128lbs which is a loss of 3lb's which is a nice weight loss, I'm happy, all together I'm looking at 3.5/4lbs Weight loss, I'm not putting my working out as a contributing factor because I have pulled some muscles and I'm so stiff that that must add weight on because the muscles become hard when sore. 
Hopefully when my muscles calm down and they start burning fat I will start seeing an improvement both on the scales and the shape of my upper body in the mirror.

Thank you very much for reading, the encouragement that I got last week really helped me and reading Tilly's experience also really spurs me on, if you wanna join in on the experience tweet your post with the has tag #wwednesday, tweet me @kewteepye, follow me on BlogLovin and GFC. Ta ta.
