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,

Bex X
