Anyway slightly off subject but I just wanted to christen and show off my new blog design, courtesy of the super talented and lovely Steph at Bonjour Belle - Click here to visit Stephs blog!. I've been following her blog for a while and totally love it, and it was a bonus to find out Steph did blog designs and looking through her examples I knew I needed one!
The design Steph has created t's totally me and better than I could ever have designed I love it!!! Plus I have a blog button if anyone would like to feature it on their blog, a great archive (I love looking through a blog's archive, especially at their first ever post!) so feel free to have a snoop, plus there's the usual twitter, instagram and bloglovin buttons for you to follow me using these too.
Check out Steph's designs on her blog, or just check out her great beauty and fashion posts!

The Praire Charms are so gorgeous I got 3, come on if you have a browse how could you possibly only limit it to 1!
The bracelets are really cute and I like wearing all 3 together along with a few ribbon friendship bracelets I have aquired from various holidays.
There is absolutley no obligation to write a blog review of the bracelets, but if you do, you get your blog link posted on Praire Charms website so the lovely customers of Praire Charms can have a browse through the blogs and hopefully decide to follow!
As well as this bloggers that submit a review will be entered ionto a comeptition to win blogger of the month. Winners will each receive their own unique, 'one of a kind,' semi-precious gemstone bracelet and the chance to collaborate their own blog and help design their own beauty blogger bracelet set which will go live on the website and offer a special discount to their own blog followers! This is such great idea and I'm so excited hope I'm a winner!
And like all our other bracelets 10% of proceeds will go to benefit Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital, 'Kiss if Better' campaign. We would love to increase this % on bloggers bracelets, so the more bloggers that we can get involved the more we can do to help!
Have you got any Prairie Charms?

I would probably not reach for this tan agian, I prefer Fake Bake or Vita Liberata but would reccommend this tan for beginners or people who are naturally fair wanting a golden glow rather than a full on deep tan. I might even give the St Tropez Dark lotion a trial....
St Tropez Bronzing Mousse is available at Hairtrade Click Here RRP: £30.64 Hairtrade Price: £24.51
Have you tried this tan, what did you think?/
Whats your favourite tan?

Before I became a blogger myself and was an avid reader of many, I was, and still am intrigued as to what the blogger does as a day job.
I was quite envious of people who seemed to blog all the time about fashion, make up and beauty events and seemed to get loads of freebies and seemed to be in the right place at the right time but then I discovered most are full time / freelance journalists, beauty editors or in the fashion / make-up game, any one of these would be my ideal job...(If anyone hears of any opportunities...keep me in mind?!?) ..But most of the blogs I follow seem to be done in the bloggers spare time for a hobby and interest, as mine is. I’m a full time admin worker at Teesside University, I used to be a beauty therapist, but somehow ended up in admin work, don't love it but it's tolerable and pays the bills, i.e. buys me nice make up.

I first used a tanning mitt to apply my tan, when I bought a Vita Liberata travel kit and the Vita Liberata Mitt was so good, Iwas hooked and the latex glove was never to be used again!
Now it's fair to say I used the Vita Liberata Mitt a bit too much and wore it out. So I went on the hunt for a replacement. I took heed to the packaging on the VELVOTAN Original tanning Mitt and thought well if it is "The Only way to apply self tan" I best purchase.
This mitt, whether used with instant wash off tan, mousse or lotion, makes the tan go on quickly, evenly and the tan even seems to dry quicker? Its much better when applying on the hands too as latex gloves can leave a chalky residue which you have to rinse off meaning patchy tan can occur, this is so simple, you tan one hand, then slip the mitt straight on top and tan the other hand, with no risk of streaking !
Yesterday I bought myself a new mitt as again i'm wearing my current one out..(tan addiction?) I popped to Boyes and with all the best intentions to get myself ONE self tan mitt, but hey I walked out with said self tan mitt plus the facial version, HOW CUTE IS IT THOUGH!??! I could not resist!
|VELVOTAN Orignal Self Tanning Mitt £1.99 plus VELVOTAN Face Mitt £1.49 both from BOYES|
|Cosmopolitan Beauty Expert Sponge £3.99 BOYES|
Oh yeah, I also got myself another Cosmopolitan Beauty Expert Sponge (Beauty Blender Dupe) as my other one went missing..... read my blog post on it here,
Do you use a mitt to apply self tan?

Now obviously, a luxurious facial performed by a top therapist in an indulgent tranquil beauty spa would be the ideal, but nowadays that is purely a luxury for most of us, so the chance to use a top of the range spa skincare brand, will just give you a little bit more of a spa at home feeling.
