Westlife!

Sorry for the lack of updates over the past few days, I’ve had an extremely busy week and it all culminated with me going to see Westlife at the 02 in London last night!
They were absolutely amazing! I know that most of you will just expect them to do their normal songs, and stand up off their stools on the key change, but they did none of this. Well – they obviously did some of their normal songs, but their medley was fantastic! I never thought I would hear Westlife sing Coldplay, Rihanna, Black Eyed Peas and Lady Gaga songs, but omg, they did!

Here are some photos from the concert

This was when they were posing for a picture πŸ™‚ They told everyone to get their cameras & phones out and to take some pictures of them! I was too far to really get anything worthy.

This was another picture of them posing!

This was on the bar that came out and over, above the crowds heads. It was amazing <3

They were supported by Wonderland (which includes Kian’s wife Jodi in the lineup) and an adorable guy named Glenn Cal! His voice is brilliant, why not check him out on Youtube?

Now you know why I haven’t been blogging as much, but fear not, I shall appear frequently over the next couple of days with some more ramblings!

Ahhh Pancakes

Well I was a good girl today…. and I didn’t have pancakes! Basically, my boyfriends on a diet and I’m on a fitness kick so I’m trying to be as supportive to him & as good to me as I can.
However, my boyfriend treated me to a little something:

How sweet of him! He knew we wouldn’t have pancakes so got me him as a treat instead πŸ™‚ Just filled my chocolate fix too! I’m going to have to be very good for the next few days!

I didn’t go for a walk with my friend tonight, as I’m suffering with my back today, however I shall be carrying on again tomorrow!

What did you have on your pancakes(lucky people!) ?

Mission Get Fit

Yes, I have finally crumbled and decided that I need to get fit. My boyfriend and half of my friends are all dieting/keeping fit so I thought I may as well do so whilst I’ve got some company to share the pain with πŸ˜›

I kid. But, seriously, I’ve always said I am going to do it, but I never do. I attempted Zumba once, but I was so out of breath after a couple of dances that I haven’t been since! Also, recently, I have been suffering a lot with my back (I have a bad back), and my doctor has prescribed painkillers and referred me to physiotherapy. I’ve decided that I am going to take a brisk walk each evening to start with, and then build up to a jog when I feel up to it. Hopefully, with the help of healthy eating, I shall lose some weight and maybe it will alleviate some of the pain.

I’ve also just heard that my local gym only costs Β£20 a month, or Β£5 for a one-off trip. I may have to take a little mooch up there! So I’m sitting here in my trackie bottoms, hoodie and trainers, having got in from a walk with my good friend Sophie, and I can’t wait to do more. Roll on tomorrow night, I say!

Are any of you dieting or trying to get fit?
What methods do you use?

Neals Yard Remedies Review

A friend of mine recently held a Neals Yard Remedies beauty party at her flat, and I promised myself I wouldn’t buy anything. However, I left the party having bought over thirty pounds worth of stuff for myself and my mum.

This evening, I am going to review two of these products. Firstly, the Rosemary and Cedarwood Hair Treatment. This claims to ‘add shine & condition to all hair types’. I applied it this afternoon, and completed the steps given on the tub. The treatment seems to be a wax, set into the tub, and you really have to rub your fingers around in order to get some onto your fingers in order to be able to apply it directly to your hair. Once applied, you have to leave the treatment on for thirty minutes, then apply shampoo, and rinse out of your hair. I left the treatment on slightly longer than thirty minutes then realised and panicked, however my hair has come out extremely shiny, and feels amazing – so i need not have worried. I will certainly be using this every two or three washes to give my hair the boost it needs.

Next I would like to review the Beautiful Skin Tea. I am sitting here drinking this now, and although it tastes quite nice, with the amount of berries and fruits in the tea, I would have thought there would be a bit more flavour to the tea. You have to leave it to infuse for ten minutes – I tried it at ten minutes and couldn’t taste anything so I left it a little longer. I am yet to see if this tea does benefit my skin, but I do feel that the flavours and taste could be improved slightly. I will keep you updated on how I feel this has affected my skin.

I also bought another tea, ( however, my Mum has stolen that from me at the minute, so I’m not too sure when I’ll be able to try it) and an energy roll-on for the pulse points, which hasn’t helped as yet, but I shall live in hope.

Have you ever tried any products from Neals Yard Remedies?
If so, what did you think of them?

Olay Total Effects Wakeup Wonder review

I was very lucky this week to receive a free 7ml sample of Olay Total Effects Wake Up Wonder anti-ageing moisturiser through the post. (If you would like to receive free samples, visit Olay here , register & take a look at their samples and competitions once you have logged in).

Now, I have tried many moisturisers over the years, but as I sit here typing this, I can tell you that this is by far the best one I have tried. I applied it a couple of hours ago just after getting out the bath – and it claims to ‘wake up tired looking skin’. I will happily admit that my skin is not in the best shape this week, so I thought it was about time to treat my skin and to use my little sample.

My skin feels baby smooth, and I cannot stop touching my face. My boyfriend even commented on how soft my skin feels. Also, it has certainly brightened my skin  – my skin doesn’t look grey, dull and lifeless, it actually looks young like its supposed to!

(Excuse the cans of Coke – my poison of choice on a Sunday evening)

I certainly believe I will be investing in the full-sized verson of this, as I have not yet found a moisturiser that makes my skin feels as this does.

What’s your favourite moisturiser?
