Evening Make-up Look || April 2014

 Mood: In pain after falling last night
Listening to: Waves- Mr Probz

Hey beautiful bloggers!

So last night I went out and celebrated the 21st birthday of one of my best friends, so I thought I'd do a blog post of my make-up look that evening.

For once I actually faked tanned. I used the Dove Summer Glow Nourishing Lotion in Fair to Medium and I also used a bit of St Tropez self tanning mousse on top. I love both of these products and they're my first choice when it comes to self tanning.

Base: Rimmel Wake me up Foundation in Soft Beige // Collection Concealer in Medium 2 // Bourjois Delice de Poudre // Nars Blusher in Orgasm // MAC's Soft and Gentle highlighter

Eyes: Naked 2 palette in Tease, Booty Call and Blackout // MUA's Undressed palette in shade 12 // Maybelline's The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara // Maybelline's EyeStudio lasting drama gel eyeliner // Topshop kohl eyeliner in Coal // Rimmel kohl eyeliner in White 

Lips: Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Frambourjois

Sorry for the awful quality picture!
The Bourjois lipstick was a new product I bought a few days before and last night was the first time for me to use it. Wow, is all I have to say! The colour pay off is fantastic, and it literally stains your lips for hours so it was perfect for a night out. The colour Frambourjois is a stunning red-pink and it's beautifully matte without being too dry on the lips.

Me and my friend Jo
I had a great night last night, although I did fall down some stairs in a club and now have the loveliest hand sized, square bruise/carpet burn on my leg with a matching cut on my knee, nice one Beth. 

Well I hope everyone had a great weekend, and didn't fall down any stairs like me!

Love from Bethan

Health & Fitness & Life Update

Mood: Refreshed
Listening to: Sheezus- Lily Allen

Hey beautiful bloggers,

So...I've more or less broke my New Years resolution of posting twice a month. But I have good reason as I've had a pretty tough few months, there was the unexpected death of my aunt and I've not been up to writing blog posts and I've just concentrated on going to work and being around family. I don't want to go on too much, but I just want to remind everyone to realise how lucky they are and to appreciate everything they have going on in their life right now, because life is too short so make the most of it. 

On the plus side, I've sort of stuck to part of my New year's resolution by losing weight and getting fit. For the last 6 weeks I've been following Slimming World and I've lost 1 stone! (Or 14lbs to my oversea friends!) I've also been attending aquarobics every Wednesday and getting as much exercise in as possible to try and get fit, even going on (dreaded up-hill) walks on my dinner hour in work!
I've really enjoyed following SW, I'm cooking a lot but it's really enjoyable and so is the exercise. I've been fortunate enough to have the support from my friends at work who have also joined slimming world and I can get fit with them. 

Throwing in a selfie
I've noticed a huge change in my skin lately, I've been wearing less make-up and I've had some really good skin days. I think it's down to drinking plenty and getting plenty of exercise. It's been great not wearing a lot of make-up, your skin deserves a break on times.

I feel like I still have a long journey ahead but it's one I'm looking forward to.

I thought I'd give you a playlist of songs I like to workout to at the moment, it tends to change a lot so I don't get bored but this is my current one.
