Last week I cut loads of my lipsticks to get my pro kit organised. Plus I have been collecting my brush cleaner empty bottles to for recycling. If you didn't already know there is a back to Mac programme that is all about being environmentally friendly. After cutting a load of my Mac lipsticks I remembered the program so took myself off to the Waterfront store.
My gorgeous new Huda Beauty Palette arrived last week perfect timing for the Pink Polo. I decided this year I was going all out with my make up and the palette. It has the perfect shades of pinks and the pigment shades. Paired with a pink matt lip and my pretty Mari and Me bright pink dress I was really happy with result.
I have been struggling to sleep the past month for the first time ever in my life and its not been fun. I would either lie awake for hours or wake up at 4am and just can't sleep. Taking sleeping pills definitely isn't an option maybe here or there but definitely not every night. I am definitely into anything natural so after asking around and reading some blogs. I now have found natural remedies that help you sleep and work a treat. I tested them both out together and even my insomniac husband slept like a baby.
After being overseas and totally over undulging on nachos, pasta, bread etc etc I stood on my scales and nearly fainted. Somehow I had managed to put on 6 kilos and with summer fast approaching that's not great. Especially when I spend my life around model's I needed to get super motivated. Its so hard getting your head in the game to start your diet or change your way of living. You really have to see it as a long term goal. I literally have been having a stern talk with myself the last few months. Finally my head is in the game. This may not work for everyone but it works for me as I can't live on a high fat or carb diet. Its all about the protein for me. In the last month I have managed to shed 3 kilos which is pretty good going and I have another 3 to go. Its not easy and you have to have will power but if you really want it then go for it. This post is all about my tips on how to lose weight.
The last week I have literally been trying to sort out my pro kit and getting ruthless. I realised that I needed some Mac beauty basics to add to my kit. Nude lipsticks, lip pencils and paint pots have been my latest purchases. Mac always have such a great selection when it comes to lippies. Even though I have so many I have lost count as a makeup artist you always need every nude shade. Its definitely all about the basics with this purchase with 4 new nude lipsticks, a nude lip liner, two nude pro longwear paint pots and a gel liner that are definite essentials.
