Stuck in a Rut

It wasn't until I got a proper full time job I could stop shopping around for the best of the cheap make up brands or Boots and Superdrug's own that I could actually invest in some half decent make up when I discovered Mac. Maybe part of it was because girls always talked about how great Mac was, and maybe part of it was the fab reviews it always got and the fact in every youtube makeover the girl ALWAYS uses Mac products, but from the first time I used it I loved it, I could still never justify buying more than 1 or 2 products at once and always stuck to the basics, I have issues about spending too much money on "gifts" for myself, and I always mixed my make up bag with Mac and cheaper products, like the odd Rimmel eyeshadow (to take a colour risk) for example, but ive pretty much stuck with Mac for the last 5-10 years.. which is a relatively long devotion.

Yesterday while getting a pedicure I indulged in some of those magazines I usually wouldnt buy for home all that often because I never really sit and read them, but because I wasnt getting a manicure at the same time (I love you everlasting nails!) I read... Grazia, Ahlan, Hello, OK yes for once I was rude to my pedicurist, but in the long term its OK, she'll forgive me next time I discuss Philippine politics with her! I saw in each magazine was a review of a different Benefit Product, the one that grabbed me was "Pore fessional" I have issues with my pores, Microdermabrasion helped me loads, but quite often when I get home from a long day at work I really cannot be bothered will skin care, I know that sounds crazy, but I really cannot, this sounded like a dream product, although these are often too good to be true, the store opposite my nail bar sells Benefit! Oh and it was pay day, so I brought a few things which I am totally in love with and aside from my foundation (which took me years to find the right one at Mac) I will more than likely switch from Mac to Benefit....

Todays Products of my Dreams, that actually work wonders in real life:

Perfect for my overwhite skin.... ahhhhh so nice to buy products that actually do what you want them to and work for your skin tone etc on the first try :)

Addictive Song

I literally cannot stop listening to this, first time I was like "so what" Joe Rogan played this on his Podcast (which I LOVE) and i googled it apparently its an internet phenomenon...

They played the radio version on Trevor Nelson as "Forget You" instead of "Fuck You"

Kendall Jenner - Too Young?

So after my post the other day about Kendall Jenner being too young to model the way she was, all wet and sandy on the beach in a bikini with a tonne of Make-up, apparently i'm not the only one who thought so!

Just a quick post today, i'm quire preoccupied with my Twitter today and the Blackberry Ban travesty that just hit the UAE which goes into place in October due to Data Protection Issues.... Apparently...

Kim Kardashians Guide to Dressing a Curvy Figure

Listen shes not a graduate in Fashion, (although she did dress some famous people pre sex tape days..) Monica Rose picks out her clothes, But she does always look good and she definitely knows how to show off her curves in the right places... so here you go ladies:

Find A Great Tailor

"Anything you wear should be proportioned to your body, and a good tailor will make sure everything fits perfectly. I either have my tailor at every fitting or I have my stylist pin my wardrobe and take it to the tailor before I wear anything. Shortening a hem line on a dress can make a huge difference!"

Accentuate Your Waist

"Show off that tiny waist! Adding a belt makes your outfit look more polished. I have great belts from Phillip Lim and Alaia. Vintage belts are one of a kind and can be affordable too."

Avoid Oversize Tops & Dresses

"I know they are comfortable and they look amazing on Nicole Richie but flowy tops and dresses are not flattering on a curvy figure. They can make you look pregnant and they look sloppy in photos. Try wearing a maxidress instead. A.L.C, Torn by Ronny Kobo and T Bags make some great ones."

Embrace Shapewear
(never thought id hear a celeb admit this!)

"Every woman from a size 0-14 should own Spanx! I love Shapewear by Body Wrap; they have a firm control long leg panty that makes my body look smoother and slimmer under fitted dresses without leaving any lines."

Love Your Curves

"Being confident and owning your body is sexy. I love to show off my curves and designers like Thatcher, Antonio Berardi, Preen, Altuzarra, Markus Lupfer and Brian Lichtenberg make amazing dresses that fit my body perfectly."

Kardashian Porn Company

So there is another Kardashian sex tape, its my boyfriends favorite of the sisters, she didnt have a sex tape, she wasnt gobby she seemed shy (till Miami!) he was her favorite. Now he gets to see more of her. in fact we all do because she now like her younger sister Kim has a sex tape.

I was going to write a post about what a wonderful model Kendall Jenner seems to be, she looks a bit shy but not sure she had a better road to go down and to be very honest she seems the most model like.

I am surprised however that Bruce (of the protectiveness ive seen of him) would let his 14 year old daughter pose around in a Bikini shot through her legs.... Now im an avid KUWTK watcher hell I might even watch KKTM sometimes (theres a limit I dont even see my OWN family that much) and they hid from him Bikini shoots in the past and they are adults... (and not his biological daughters) im honestly a bit shocked to see this:

But then when two of your female role models are porn stars.....

Sexiest Woman Alive...... Really?

So this is apparently Esquire Magazines pick for 2010 sexiest woman alive:


Ok she does look better here:

But if shes the sexiest woman alive I kinda expect someone who doesn't look ok in a snapshot, but does look at at a photo shoot, hell anyone could be the sexiest woman alive then! OK so it's nice to see a fuller figure woman as the sexiest woman alive, but then again deep down that's what men want, and I'm presuming the title of sexiest woman alive comes from men's votes or something and not from other women looking on objectively. But really sexiest woman alive? not sure about that!

What do you think?

Cheap Improvements

So yesterday I was in Geant Hypermarket and since I got paid... early I might add I was having one of those days where you buy things, gimmicky things you wouldn't normally look twice at! Anyways I threw lots of beauty goodies in my trolly now the following two I couldnt wait to try when I got home because they seemed to good to be true!

The first thing I brought (I was in Geant because id actually missed my nail appointment in Nail Bar and thought, why not get some food for home LOL) was Nail Patches:

Now these looked a little tacky (and I add its not this brand they sell in Geant but its pretty much exactly the same!) There is no nail varnish involved, its one white sticker ready shaped you stick over the tip of your nail, and then i slightly pinkish clear one you stick over the top of that, now they are a little fiddly at first but you soon get used to it, would be alot easier to get a friend to do it for you, but honestly they are beautiful and you would never know its not nail varnish. I put them on last night so just waiting to see how long they last... its 25aed I think (so £3) which is less than half what I pay for a manicure, and the painting is the reason i go (oh and the massage and reading magazines for free!) shaping of my nails I can do myself... so its less than half the price of ONE manicure and you get TWO complete sets.... if they last longer than a week i'm sold :)

The second item I brought (and am testing) is heated eyelash curlers! YES bit crazy I know, but a while back I got some eyelash extentions and although my eyelashes are pretty long anyway ever since i had those ive been a bit obsessed with things that give me longer, curvier lashes :) once again it isnt this brand i got because I have a feeling what im buying is Geants own brand maybe, but heres a pic:

They were only 50aed and I used them (quickly) this morning and didnt use eye lash curlers they are pretty good and seem to be holding the shape better! I also managed to get the stray lashes that my eyelash curlers can normally get!!

I only tried them both today... let me see in a week ;)
