Afternoon lovelies, just a little update with what’s going on with me at the minute, I do have some planned posts written down to do it’s just finding the time to do them.
Slimming World – I had to go back! My eating habits were becoming shocking and I was also being very lazy with no exercise. I haven’t been to Slimming World since the beginning of June which is when I got my 1 stone award, I went back last Thursday (weigh in last night) and put on 8.5 pounds since my last weigh in back in June! 8.5 pounds! My god, it just goes to show how easy it is to do. I went last night and lost 3 pound and it was 'star week' for me so I was pretty chuffed. I am really enjoying the diet again this time round and I hope I can keep this up!
Baking – If you follow me on Twitter (if not, why not? =D @TheHQofBeauty) you will know that I have gone baking mad! Darren ♥ and I recently got a new oven installed in our flat which is fan assisted which means my cakes come out taller than me! So far I have made, Red Velvet Cupcakes and a Lemon Drizzle Cake. I have a carrot cake to make this weekend, it’s all go go go! I’ve been looking up cake decorations, piping bags and nozzles on eBay and last night I even watched a couple of YT videos on how to make fondant icing! Darren ♥ made a joke that I could make our wedding cake. We haven’t even talked about ‘the wedding’ but it got me thinking about it and I do like a challenge! Kind of wish I waited another month before going back to Slimming World…….man I love da cake! =D
I could eat one of these right now!
Blogposts and You Tube videos – You may have noticed that there has been a bit of a dip in my posts and videos, I’ve had a few family matters to attend to. Right this minute my Father-in-Law ♥ to be is recovering from major surgery so my blog and YT have had to take a back seat whilst we all pull together for him. I’m fattening him back up with Carrot Cake this weekend! I also had a massive phone bill from Turkey to pay and that kinda sucked up all my money that I usually spend on myself/cosmetics. Hopefully I will be back on track this month.
Cosmo Blog Awards – My sister Faye ♥ entered me in for the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards under ‘New Beauty Blog’ category, I’ve put off asking anything like this as I didn’t want it to come across as ‘begging’ but it would really make my day if you voted for my blog in the ‘New Beauty Blog’ category. I have voted for a couple of favourites this year, good luck to everyone.
That’s it for me really, I’m having a nightmare trying to track down the Oh So Special Palette by Sleek, I’ve tried the Superdrug over Monument twice and the Superdrug at Fenchurch Street, I even have my sister on the lookout. Thanks Fuzz ♥
I hope you all have a fab weekend, I should hopefully get a couple of posts done over the weekend and maybe even a video! Have you subbed to my You Tube channel too?
