Shopping at Cherry Diva

Hello lovelies,

Those of you on Twitter should have heard of the fabulous little online store which sell a range of products from jewellery and hair accessories to phone cases and quirky socks.

Safe to say you will be spoilt for choice! So I thought why not share some of the goodies I've bought in the last few months, from the lovely peeps at cherrydiva :)

First up! The statement necklace! Look at those beauties! These will turn any plain top into a show stopping, red carpet, magazine worthy ensemble! With enough drama that even the biggest diva will be smiling, these were worth the price! 

Next I got these fabulous pieces. A Purple Heart necklace with swarovski element which is beautiful!

Plus a cute rose gold-esque bangle with a dangling anchor and a cat mask bracelet. Very cute :)

More necklaces. These were from a sale a while ago but I thought I'd still show them as they are quirky.
A jewelled owl and a 3D Rose heart necklaces in distressed metal. 

How fabulous are these ankle socks?! One is superman (clearly) and the other pair is Ariel from The Little Mermaid. They do other designs which are just as cool :D

Speaking of Ariel. I bought this iPad mini case which features the inquisitive little princess of the sea. It tickles me that it looks like she's holding the apple logo. What can I say? Small things amuse me ;)

Sooo that's my bits from cherrydiva :) whilst a few items may not be available now (sorry), the point of this post was to show the diverse range on offer and maybe introduce you to a cool online boutique where you can find some great bargains!

Hope you enjoyed this post?! Be sure to let me know if you grab a few new pretties at :)

Much Love,

Let's get healthy!

Hello guys,

How are you? Hope your new year is going well!

I'm back on the health train with a vengeance this year! Last year I was pathetic in my attempt to lose weight but fear not my friends this year you'll see a whole new Bex!

I'm 29 years young this June and I'm going to imats this year!! So I want to look my best. Now I'm not saying fat chicks can't wear makeup or be seen at a 'fashionable' event but for me personally? I just don't feel comfortable.

One of the main reasons I never attended any blogger meet ups last year was due to feeling super self conscious which in hindsight is silly but the brain is a weird yet powerful thing that can make you feel funny things...

That being said I'm determined to step out of my comfort zone and embrace new things. If you read my previous post you'll know I'm setting myself mini goals each month and I think socialising is a big thing I need to work on.

So far this year is going good. I'm following a low carb plan and with extra veg it's keeping me full. I'm also making a big effort to drink more water. This will flush out my system, hydrate my skin which is badly in need and stop me attacking the biscuit barrel when I 'think' I'm hungry. 

What about you? Any tips or tricks you want to share let me know!

Much Love,

Bex x

PS: How cute is my bob the minion 2016 diary? :)

Post new year blues...

Hello lovelies,

So 2016 is well underway. It's a week into January and I'm already overthinking what I want to do, accomplish or buy this year. My to do list has a to do list and future wages have already been spent.

Then I just thought. No Bex, this year you're not going to work yourself into an anxiety ridden mess of overspending, overeating and towards the last bit of 2015 oversleeping! 

I'm giving myself a break. I'm embracing the healthy lifestyle I do in fact enjoy when I'm not pouting like a toddler over my need to eat 27 mars bars. FYI I don't even like mars bars so yeah...erm moving on.

I've decided to set myself small, achievable goals each month. These can be weightloss related, about blogging or just general ones like cleaning my shower (cleaning is sooo boring!) lol

January's Goals

• make a blogging plan for posts/promotion etc

• get my first YouTube video up (I'm trying to figure out editing right now)

• drink more water!!!

• take my dogs out twice a day instead of once!!

The beauty of some of my goals is that they can follow on each month until they become part of my daily routine without even thinking about it. 

Each month I'll add or make a new list of things to work towards. I really want 2016 to matter. I don't want to look back like I did in December 2015 and regret a wasted year.

So who's with me? Who's going to make a plan and smash their goals? 

Much Love,

Bex x

Happy New Year & it's my blogs birthday!!

Hello lovelies,

I want to wish you all a fabulous new year!

Not only am I celebrating the end of a busy 2015 but today is my blogs 1st birthday! :D

Now when I started last year I didn't expect to stick with it and I certainly didn't think my beauty/make up hobby would grow so big (and expensive! Ha) but here we are a year later with more palettes that I know what to do with!

I've chatted to some amazing people this year and worked with some lovely brands. I'm truly thankful to everyone who comments and let's me know that my babble is heard.

My weight loss took a bit of a hiatus the last few months but I'm ready to start kicking arse and taking names! 

I want to really focus this year on myself, my health and my blog. I want to gain more confidence with myself and start to let people in as I tend to step back when I'm uncomfortable.
I'd also love to attend some events, meet my fellow bloggers and make new friends! 

Here's to a new year! May your dreams become a reality and your reality become the dream you strive for.

Happy 1st Birthday Bubblybex3!! I can't wait to see what 2016 brings :)

Much Love,

Bex x
