That 'Perfect' Summer Bod

Hey Guys,
 
Today I want to talk about something important..body image. I think this is something everyone has felt down about at some point. I really think around this time of year body image is very relevant. I hear people getting ready for bikini season and that's fantastic if they want to get healthier or fitter. But I don't like the ideas of getting that 'perfect summer bod'. Using this term makes people automatically have a negative perception of their current body shape and that shouldn't be the case.
 

I just wanted to remind you don't need to have toned abs to wear a bikini or a killer arse to wear shorts. No matter what size or shape you are it really doesn't matter. Nobody has a 'perfect' body because there's no such thing. Wear your body proud because honestly if you act confident you will look & feel it. So please don't worry about too much & make the most of this beautiful weather we have been so blessed with recently.

 
 Work that bikini gurl!
 
I hope you all have a great weekend!
 
Love always,
Nixie xx

FOTD: Fashion Show

 
 
 
Hey Guys,
Today I will be doing another FOTD ( Face Of The Day)
 
A few weeks ago I went to a fashion show with some of my friends. I don't wear make-up to school but I wore a small amount to this event. I thought it might to interesting to show you guys.
 
Collections Lasting Perfection Concealer in '01'
Rimmels Stay Matte Powder
( I recently hit pan, I was so happy)
Real Techniques Buffing Brush
M.U.A's 'Undress Me Too' Palette
 Benefits They're Real Mascara
Niveas Sooth & Protect
M.A.C's Matte Lipstick in 'Please Me'
 
 I haven't been able to upload anything recently as I have been sick after getting my tonsils out.
I some how managed to pick up chicken pox. I've also had a school project that I was working on.
But thankfully I am fully recovered (for now, god knows what else I'll get next).
 
I hope you all have a lovely week!
 
Leave me a comment telling me your current favourite beauty product. :)

FOTD: Simple Saturday

 


Hey Guys,
I hope you are all well.
 
Today I will be doing a FOTD ( Face of the day, or make-up in my case)
 
 So here is what I wore on my face last Saturday.
It was a casual day shopping and drinking hot chocolate with my sister.
 
I normally don't wear much make-up at the weekends, just some concealer & one or two other things.
 
Natural Collection Concealer in 01- because I'm Irish & pale as a ghost. I used this on any blemishes & sometimes under my eyes. 
Nivea Sooth & Protect Lipbalm - I really like this lip balm almost as much as my Carmex. I always have this thrown in my make-up bag to moisturise before applying lipstick.It also has SPF 15 in it which is ideal for Spring & Summer months. 
Mac Satin Lipstick in 'Rebel' - This is my favourite lipstick I wear this almost whenever I have any excuse to wear make-up.  
Benefit They're Real Mascara- I got this mascara in December & I have been using it ever since. I also would love to try Benefits new mascara 'The Rollar Lash'.
 
I am currently sitting on the couch in my pj's ready & waiting to watch 'The Late Late Show' with some hot chocolate.
Also in a bit of pain as I'm recovering from a tonsillectomy, at least I can eat as many pancakes as I want.
 
Love always,
Nixie
