Sparkle and shine with glitter nails and orly

 
Sparkle and shine with glitter nails and orly

Ok so during the festive season I am clearly addicted to glitter nails and this year is no exception I am currently sporting orly polish covered in glitter but that's another post .....

This is about the new orly mini trio of festive minis they are available in 3 gorgeous glitter all colours, devil may care which is a right gorgeous red glitter, halo which is a golden sheen glitter and angel eyes for the daring out there to break the norm with gorgeous rich blue glitter.

I love them they are gorgeous and are the perfect topper to a complimenting colour base or dare to bare and wear them on their own with a naked nail...
 
How would you wear yours??

Available now at boots in store for £5.00 each yummy hope they are in my stocking!!

Love Aimee

Last minute gift with 007


So the festive season is here and it's nearly time to deck the halls etc but your stuck with what to buy your or gorgeous man ? Then check out this bad boy.

We have ALL heard of the new 007 movie sky fall and to celebrate the golden anniversary they have released 007 the fragrance in gold.

James Bond is the man every man secretly dreams of being so this fragrance eludes desirability and exclusiveness.


This gold edition bottle is limited for the 50th anniversary and is the perfect gift for any bond fan. Just imagine your mans face when he opens this gorgeous present on Christmas Day, I am sure he will be all smiles!!




I personally feel that this speaks for itself, it's a masculine fragrance which is in a timeless bottle. And the price is pretty damn good too.

You can get this from Harrods a 75ml bottle for £34 and in other store a 50ml bottle for £25 . This is not a price tag that will break the bank and its a perfect little surprise for the one you love.

Think I might pop out and get my hubby one for Christmas... Good thing he doesn't read my blog or he might know the surprise .

 
So ladies grab your purse and spoil the special man in your life this christmas !

Love Aimee

Getting fit for NYE with Herbalife



So Christmas is coming and the turkey is getting fat as they say ... Well so did I last year in fact in the space of 7 days I over indulged to epic proportions and gained a whopping 9lbs.

This year I am looking to avoid that and how I felt after I stepped of the scales and I finally have a secret weapon.

 


Herbalife have brought out their seasonal festive flavour shake and boy is it yummy, it's called vanilla spice and its so good!!

You can use the shake to replace a meal to remain healthy or even replace 2 for a great way to loose some extra pounds. I love this shake because its healthy and can be used at any stage in your adult life including pregnancy.

I so far have managed to loose 4 lbs as recommended to keep within my healthy BMI I did this over a week by alternating the shakes on one day I would replace one meal and the other replace 2 meals. Doing this has allowed me to remain healthy and where I need to be.

It's perfect if your little lack dress for that all important NYE party is a little on the snug side too giving you the perfect fit for the new year.

I was really lucky to have been given the opera unity to give this shake a try and I do really like it the question is however would I buy more of it? Yes I would in fact I will be in the new year to get myself trim for my friends wedding. This shake is packed full of vitamins and everything you require to remain healthy whilst loosing weight.

I really like having one for breakfast it's my little saviour and keeps me from having foods which are unhealthy, as I am yet to find a healthy satisfying cereal and there is only so much porridge I can handle before enough is enough. I feel energised on the shakes and don't feel like I am starving.

You can really make them your own too, pop it in a blender with some crushed ice and strawberries!! It totally changes it up.

The shake retails at £27.60 and you get a good 2 weeks worth of breakfasts and lunch so it's defiantly worth every penny! I have been known to spend far more than that in a week on sandwichs from the food van, and this way you know your being healthy.

Check them out at
www.products.herbalife.co.uk

Invest in yourself in 2013 and make it a great start to the year.

Love Aimee

The Shoes... LUSH  from River Island and are £90.00 but boy are they HOT!
 
The Clutch .... is actually a purse but i like to be minimal on a night out so this is perfect ans only £17.00!
 
The Sparkle Cuff... well every girl needs a little more bling in her life and i feel this finishes off the look PERFECTLY! £18.00

Get ready for party season with Holland & Barrett

Love it when a gorgeous box arrives on my door stop and this one is no exception.

So we all know the holidays are coming a lot faster than I had organised for let's say so this box in its self is a little blessing in disguise. We have all heard if the little black book, well this is the little black box. Everything a 20 something girl could need to prepare her gorgeous self for the party season.

So what goodies does this box hold?
 


Ladies so your killing yourself at the gym? Doing your best to shed some extra pounds to fit in to your perfect Christmas dress? I have been given the answer to your problem the fat metaboliser it's a supplement which you take at the same time you are embarking on some fitness and healthy eating program. It gives you the energy boost you need to slog it down at the gym.

It's not going to work on its own its not a miracle cure you have to work at it but it can give you a little boost you may need to just she the last few stubborn pounds which are keeping you away from your dress. It's now only £5.49 until December 5th and it will go back up to its normal price of £10.99.

Next in my box of goodies we have

Holland and Barrett's skin, hair and nails. I am already a massive fan of this supplement its affordable and really helps you maintain lush locks, glowing skin and stronger nails. Every woman should be taking a supplement to help in this area. I already use this and have and will continue to recommend it to my friends. It's usual price of £7.69 is still really good for 60 tablets and currently until Dec 5th it's at a bargain price of £3.84. I for one will be stocking up!!

Last but not least the best item in the box I love it.

Maid lira coconut oil which is £6.99 for 207ml. Or currently on promotion until Dec 5th us perfectly pure coconut oil now half price at £7.49 for a huge 453g. A little really does go a long way as when it touches your warm skin it melts and expands allowing maximum coverage


With minimum product. Perfect for all over body use, great for keeping the skin supple when pregnant too helping prevent pesky stretch marks. Hair needing done severe moisture treatments? This is so versatile you can use it on your hair too. I have do far only used it as a moisturiser so unsure of how my hair would feel after using it as a testament but I'm not adverse to giving it a shot, so watch this space.

I will be reaching for it every day and look forward to super soft sexy skin in the bitter winter months, it can all be doom and gloom when it's raining cats and dogs ay!

I am really impressed with this box and all the bits in it. Would I buy them again? Without a shadow of a doubt, in fact on Saturday I will be heading to holland and Barrett to stock up on some more coconut oil and skin, hair and nails whilst they are going so cheap!!
You don't have to be a crazy lady like myself and brave the wind and rain you can order online and get then sent straight to your front door. Head on over to
www.hollandandbarratt.com.

Have you or would you give any of these products a go?

Love Aimee

Gaia pure pregnancy belly butter

My biggest fear of pregnancy is stretch marks. I'm not a small girl by any means and do have a few sneaky buggers hanging about. However if I can avoid any more I will be more than pleased in fact I would probably do a little dance.
I have been sent this product to have a try of and of course only being 30 weeks pregnant I have 10 more weeks where the possibility of stretch marks could become a reality so I have been using it for the last week an although I won't know the end result just yet I will let you in on my thoughts about the product so far.
Packaging is cute it's pink which is a great colour and for the product the price point is pretty good too. I will come to it later however.
 


As it says on the tube it's pure, natural an organic. And Isn't just for your tummy, you can use it any where , where you can experience stretch marks like your lovely lady lumps, and your thighs all of which seam to get bigger during pregnancy.

They recommend using it twice a day during pregnancy and for 12 weeks after the birth.

It has a really light fragrance of natural oils and goes into the skin leaving it soft and amazingly not oily.

 


For a weeks worth of use I am really pleased with it, it's coverage, fragrance and feel. You don't need a huge amount to get a Good desired effect.
 


I would use it again and I would recommend it to any expecting friends.

It's £11.99 and available from
www.more4mums.co.uk

Thanks for reading

Love Aimee

They are moisturising and great do aching muscles - not tried it yet but I am tonight I am very excited. My hips are killing me so I need a little help.

This I am loving it's a small tub however a little goes a long way, feels great on the skin and I am in need of all prevention.
 
Collection 2000 white eyeliner
 
This help open the eye area and mask the look of tiredness. I need this so will be using it in replacement of my usual black liner.
 
Lavere anti ageing intense face cream
 
I got 2 day sachets and 1 night just plasted one day on my face and I like the way it feels. Since wowing pregnant my skin is all over the place. Super spotty chin and horrendous dry forehead.

Summer Drinks with Alfie


Summer is hopefully around the corner and I am a big fan of bbq's, sun and easy drinks. Alfie are indevidual cans which are pre made un a selection of flavours.

I got to try gin & tonic, gin & slimline tonic and vodka & orange.

Make sure that it is chilled before drinking as it just makes it taste the little bit better.

I liked them all I always enjoy gin & tonic so the slimline version at 28 calories per 100ml it is deffinatly my top choice.

They are easy to prepare - chill, open and drink

They are a bargain price too at £1 each available from morrisons & Iceland

They taste like they have been make in a bar I have gone and brought more for a few parties I have attended and it's just so convenient.

If you are an avid calorie counter like myself here are the stats for you

The cans are 250ml




Gin & tonic 170calories per can
Gin & slimline tonic 70 calories per can
Vodka & Orange 192.5 calories per can
So there you have a quick and convenient summer drink so fill your boots and enjoy the sunshine but remember drink safe stay safe and don't be silly
