Beauty Book App

Hey lovelies,

Last week I attended the launch party for the new must have app Beauty Book. This nifty app is basically an a-z for all your beauty needs and you can compare beauty salons to find the best for you.

Want your nails doing? No problem. Just choose what you want plus the location and the app will come up with all those registered in that area. You can then check them out including customer reviews. I think it's a fabulous idea and so handy to have on the ole smart phone. Who doesn't have their phone on them 24/7?

This is perfect for those times you go away and need a quick blow dry but you're not familiar with the area! Just pop on the app and you can find a hair stylist in seconds! 
From nails to hair, tanning to teeth. You can find what you're looking for on the Beauty Book app. It's free to download from the AppStore and it's simple to use. 

I had festival glitter done at the beauty book launch party

Also the launch party was brilliant. Hosted at Neighbourhood restaurant and they had a variety of beauty treatments to try from a back massage to nails. I got some pretty glitter action from wish upon a sparkle and my friend had her hair styled by the awesome Meg who is based at the Ethan Hull Salon in Blackpool. 

Have you tried this app? What do you think?

Much Love,

July's weigh in & getting back on track

Hello peeps,

So after a very food rich birthday and a struggle to get back on track in June I'm happy to say that I only gained 3lb! You're probably wondering why I'm happy about that, the truth is I was worried I'd put on way more! So only 3lb is a win for me. 

I'll be honest it's been a struggle lately. I've lost my motivation and all those old insecurities have come back with a vengeance! It doesn't help that I'm eating way more junk & sugary foods which hinder my mood.

12 months weightloss difference

Anyway July marks a year since I started my diet and overall I've lost 4st 4lb (gained 10lb so I've lost the 5st milestone) and after wasting the last 3 months yo yo'ing, I'm pretty happy with that. It took me years to gain my weight so I don't expect it to go in months.

In that time I've had many changes, I've dropped 4 dress sizes, put myself on the tube more (cheeky channel plug) attended blogger events (socialising can be scary for an introvert!) and I've joined a bootcamp! Oh and I turned 30!

I really want this next 12 months to show some more positive changes. Yes life isn't all rainbows and unicorns but on the whole who doesn't want to sparkle? 

Stick around with me guys, as you can tell I'm human, I make mistakes but 2017 isn't over yet! Let's do this! 

Much Love,

Turning 30...

Hello guys,

Well it's official! I am now a thirty year old!!! *cue the violin* lol

I had the most amazing birthday! I was truely spoilt and I can't wait to film my birthday video and show off my pretties!

The day before my birthday I had an epic shopping trip in the Trafford Centre and spent far too much on the Urban Decay counter! I'm a sucker for pretty packaging if seems. Ha

Then after a delicious five guys (omg what took me so long?!) seriously the banana and peanut butter milkshake is to die for! We went to the Marriott to stay over and it was brilliant.

I love staying at the Marriott in Worsley, such a lovely atmosphere and as it's a country club it's very relaxed and quaint. Plus the twin rooms have double beds not single like most hotels so that's an extra bonus!

Waking up on my birthday I was surprised with a sylvanian family cottage and after wanting one since I was 7 you can bet your arse I was excited! My parents are amazing!!

After a delicious buffet breakfast and a chill in the room (yay to late checkout) we ventured home where I had a few more goodies to open. It was then time to get ready for my birthday meal!

This is where my parents surprised me with a Micheal Kors watch!!!!! OMG!!! I screamed when I saw it. I love this so much! It's so stunning and I love that it's a mix of girly and quirky which is me ;)

the most amazing watch ever!!

I could write all day about everything I got up to, all the gifts I got and the emotions I felt but I'll leave it here before you fall asleep. Lol. I want to thank everyone for their birthday messages and a big thank you to my wonderful parents! You guys rock!

Much Love,

Bex X

June's weigh in: turning 30, purple hair and weight gain!

Hello beautiful people!!

Well today is the beginning of June and this is my birthday month!!!! In only 6 sleeps ill be turning 30 and entering a whole new age bracket *get ready for the anti wrinkle cream reviews*

I got weighed today as its the first and after a month of eating crap I wasn't surprised to see I'd gained 5lb. I'm actually pretty chuffed with that as I though it'd be more so yay to small positives. After my breakdown last month (hormones played a major part in my mood) I feel ok, I was expecting this gain and to be honest I've enjoyed having a break.

Dieting is hard and since the start of the year I've struggled to find my zone again. I'm constantly second guessing myself, thinking of all the foods I can eat and why I'm not like those other people who make exercise look easy. This is obviously not a good way to think or feel so having May off was needed so I can get it out of my system and find myself again as cliché as that sounds.

So what's in store for me and bubblybex3. Well I have a lot planned for my birthday, lots of shopping, eating and family time so I'm not thinking of anything diet or exercise until Saturday 10th June. I'll be restarting bootcamp (on a holiday as I can't make classes with my birthday plans) and I'll be back on the ole healthy eating train. Plus water baby, got to get that water in especially as its been so hot!

After all my numerous festivities and I'm back in the zone I'm hoping to get back into my blog again. I have a shit load of makeup to talk about and other stuff I'd like to include if I could only pull my finger out long enough to write something! lol

I'm also going to get back into filming videos. I've not had the time or the enthusiasm lately to film makeup videos but I can feel it coming back to me and I'm excited to see what the rest of 2017 brings. I've still been doing my weekly vlogs (playlist here) but I'd really like to play with makeup again.

Finally as an added yay. I dyed my hair purple. After the awful tragedy that hit Manchester in May I realised life is too short so I went for it. Not a big deal to most but it is for me and I bloody love the colour!

Hope you stick around with me, life isn't pretty all the time but its one hell of a ride...

Much Love,
