After spending ages wriggling, yanking and pulling to get them on for a long day and when you try to get out of the them when you're home you find that you just can't budge them?

Have you been 'in the moment' and have to get them off but you just can't and end up doing crazy yoga positions in order to try get the jeans off in the least sexy way possible?

Well beautys for this Tip Tuesday I am going to tell you one of the little tips that I have came across that will help you get your favourite skinny jeans off, no bother at all!

The easiest way to take your skinnies off is to simply take them off inside out.

Yes people, that is it - as simple as that! Simply roll them down from your waist and they will come off so much easier than trying to take them off normally.

My Liebster Award Nomination

Monday, 15 September 2014

Happy Monday people! My Monday has not been great today but I am turning that round now as I have been nominated for the Liebster Award! It's always fun to be nominated for an award that helps connect us blog lovers and it came as a great surprise to me :) For those of you that don't know, the Liebster Award is used to recognise new and upcoming blogs in order to welcome them to the blogosphere.

 So without further ado I would like to thank My Spoonfull of Sugar and get on with my nomination...

1. What got you blogging in the first place and what's your blog content all about?
I have been an avid user for years now and after following the likes of Zoella, SacconeJolys and PointlessBlog so I decided I would make my own blog to give me a hobby to take up in my spare time. I also love the idea of having an online 'diary' almost, of what I have been upto and what I was feeling at a point in time. So I created this blog in order to store my memories and give me something to look back on.

2. Describe yourself in three words
This is a hard one, three words to describe me would be...

3. Favourite Word
Serendipity - The occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way

4. Favourite TV Series
There are so many TV Serires that I LOVE! But to name a few.. Friends, Breaking Bad, Prison Break and Gossip Girl! Doesn't everyone long for a relationship like Blair and Chucks <3

5. What's your all time fear? 
My all time fear is failing in what I want to do. After working so hard to achieve my degree and now going on to complete my MSc, I hope that all of the hardwork pays off and I manage to get myself the job of my dreams. Yet if worst came to worst and I didn't, as long as I have my boyfriend and family by my side then I will be okay. Another fear of mine is to feel lonely in life. No one should feel alone as somewhere out there in this world there IS someone that cares about YOU.

6. Biggest regret this year?
 One of my biggest regrets this year is being vulnerable. I often wear my feelings on my sleeve and let small things get inside my head that makes me feel extremely self conscious, stressed and anxious. This means that I have a very hard time letting things go. This affected me both physically and mentally, which made me extremely tired, rundown and highly emotional. Next year I want to become a stronger individual and when life throws those lemons at me,  I will make lemonade! Aint nobody got time to dwell on the past as it can no longer be changed, so heres to the future bitches!

7. If there was one thing you had to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Curry. Easy as that. I love spicey foor and could not live without a hot curry. Could literally eat it all day err' day.

8. Are you more inspired through Beauty or Fashion?
I like both but I'd have to say I am more inspired by Fashion as you can immediatley tell a lot more about a person through what they wear on their body rather than on their face.

9. One thing you'd like to tick off your Bucket List before 2015?
Before 2015 I would like to go to Paris and add a lock to the love lock bridge

10. One country you've always wanted to visit?
America! Due to my studies I have not had the time to get myself over the pond yet but I am due to go to Florida for three weeks with my boyrfriends family in 2016  

11. If you had once chance to change the world, what would you do?
I would discover the cure for cancer.


Well I have officially finished my first Liebster Award nomination and would now like to nominate...

Ance Face Mapping: Understanding Your Spots!

Wednesday, 10 September 2014

The most important way of dealing with any breakouts is by first understanding what is causing them. One of the best ways to do this is by identifying where your breakouts are happening on your face and using this in order to determine the primary source of the spot.

Here are a few different problem areas of the face, and why you may be getting breakouts at theses places:

Upper Forehead
The upper forehead is directly linked with your digestive system, the large intestines and the bladder.  A poor digestive system will begin to struggle breaking down food resulting in a large build up of toxins. In this case it is important to eat more antioxidant rich foods such as green teas, lemon water and berries. 

Lower Forehead
This area is associated with your mind and spirit. Breakouts in this area are often a result of lack of sleep, stress, depression or even bad blood circulation.  In order to prevent spots in this area, it important that you maintain a good sleep pattern (approx 8 hours a night) and you make time for yourself in order to relax. Whether you are busy at work, school, college or university, or even have personal issues that are causing you stress, take time to relax and clear your mind before solving the problem. Stressing over something does not change the outcome, e.g. if you are stressing over an exam, you know that you are still going to have to do it so just take a breather and get your mind set on the problem you are facing, and find away to solve it. 

Again, the nose is a problem area affected by blood pressure and stress. Make sure you make time for yourself to relax, even by putting on your favourite film, having a long bubble bath with candles or even taking some time for retail therapy (a personal fave of mine!).

Spots in the eyebrows, yuk! Who wants spots in their eyebrows right? But it does happen guys! Spots in the eyebrows can be an indication of a poor diet or the consumption of too much alcohol. In this case, detox and clear your body of all the bad stuff that you have been consuming. I am not saying completely change your diet and cut out the food you love, I am just saying do this in moderation. It is important to balance the bad with the good.

Breakouts in your ears may be a cause of liver problems. This may be due to not drinking enough water, or consuming too much salt or caffine. Make sure you drink your 8 glasses of water a day and cut down on caffine and salts.

Spots on the cheek are caused by lung problems. These lung problems may occur from smoking, respiratory stress and allergies. In order to tackle this area, try to avoid smoking or smoking areas and get plenty of fresh air in order to relieve any respiratory stress. If you have allergies ensure that you are aware of what is causing the allergy (do this by making an appointment with your GP) and taking a regular antihistamine. 

Mouth and Centre of the Chin
The mouth and the chin are related to the stomach and the small intestine. Again spots that are appearing in these areas may be a result of a poor diet such as eating too much fast food or consipation. Try to introduce fresh food with higher fibre into your diet such as, vergetables, fruits and whole grain food. 

Sides of the Chin
The sides of your chin is linked to the reproductive organs and the kidney. This means that breakouts may flare up here during the womans menstrual cycle or even due to the kidneys working overtime due to stress. Ensure that you give yourself plenty time to relax and during that one week a month girls be prepared with sudocream and your favourite spot fighting products to deal with any unwanted spots!

Something a bit different today but I hope you all liked it!
