Here I am aged 25 and just been told I have cancer. I am sat in my living room with laptop and snuggled up with my dog. Sitting here with all the thoughts running through my mind with no one to talk to. Then I see the bookmark for my blog, somewhere that I have not been too in a long time. I couldn't help but click it. So here I am pulled back to the place I use to love to come and write down my thoughts and feelings. I suppose it is only natural really, it is the place where I feel I can just say what I want when I want. Just write it down, get it all off my chest. Put my thoughts down and make sense of it all.
My story starts last October and i feel it the dreaded lump.
Me being me just pushes it to the back of my mind, it will be okay I tell myself it will just disappear. I kept thinking the doctor would just say I was being silly and make me feel stupid. Would just blame it on my weight like they always did,
Well i'm sure you guessed it by now it didn't go away.
Finally in April I go to the doctors and they referred me for test. I am meant to be seen within weeks but here I am 4 MONTHS later and the results are in.....
I do have the dreaded C word,,,,,,,,
Now it was all a blur and I cannot remember everything that the doctor said I cannot even remember what he said it was called.
The doctor said what I have is very rare I had cancer but not cancer as I know it. It is very low grade and I would just need to have surgery to remove the cancerous tumor and then have it tested. There is only a 10% chance that it has spread.
Now I know them odds are VERY good but I am not the luckiest person in the world. I already have a rare cancer and I have had such bad luck just getting the hospital appointments. 
They have lost my referral letter
Sent letters to  the wrong address 
Sent out wrong dates and times for my appointments.
And that is just to begin with.
So if anyone was going to end up with the bad news it would be me.
Listen to me moaning and droning on, People have much worse diagnoses than me all the time. I am being silly but I just cannot help it. To be honest I really wasn't expecting for it be anything at all. It will never happen to me and all that rubbish. I am sure everything will be fine in the end whatever the outcome, Just got to stay positive. 
Now that I have some of that off my chest maybe I will be able to get on with my day and function a little better. 
Before I go I would just like to say please please go to the doctors the moment you suspect anything is wrong, Don't be foolish and put it off because you don't like doctors like I did.  
Thanks for reading my rambalings

I Heart Drugstore Makeup Tag

I have been reading and watching this tag alot because even though I LOVE my high end products I am also a huge fan of drugstore/highstreet products. I mean who doesn't love a good drugstore dupe :).. I use high end makeup but totally believe you can get products that are just as good and sometimes better at the drugstore.
I haven't been tagged to do this but just really wanted to do it so I thought I would just throw out the rule book and do it anyway (Ohh I am such a rebel!)

1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand overall?
At the moment I think it is Rimmel. They have been bringing out some really good products at the moment. They are definitely on there game.
2. What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products?
Natural Collection blushes in Peach Melba and Pink Cloud. I love these blushes they have good pigmentation and last all day and for £1.99 you can not complain.
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer. It is an high coverage concealer and it is definitely one of the best concealers I have tried, and I have tried alot. It is high coverage without being cakey and even goes light enough for me to use which is rare for a drugstore product.
This changes all the time as I think that the drugstore do some of the best lip product especially Rimmel and Revlon but at the moment my favourite is the Loreal Glamshine Stain Splash, they are such good dupes for the YSL Glamshines (You can read my compairson HERE).
3. Least favorite product?
For me my least favourite products are drugstore foundation, It is only because they do not go light enough for me which is so annoying because there are some really good foundations but they just look too orange on me, If anyone does know of a foundation that goes super light and is good PLEASE let me know I would love to find one.
4. What is the best makeup bargain? 
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder is such a baragin at £3.99 and is one of the best powders I have ever used.
5. What is your favorite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)
I think my underdog product would be the 2true Cheek and Lip Stain. People may have talked about this product and I just haven't seen it but I love it. I am sure we all know what a stain is so I don't need to go in to details but it lasts all day, It goes over foundation smoothly and is a bargain at £1.99.
6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?
Max factor false lash effect mascara, It is a good mascara but at £10.99 it is not far off the price of a high end mascara.
7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!!
I have a lot of dupes that are hyped up in the beauty community so as everyone knows about them there is not much point mentioning them, like the MUA undress me pallette and Maybelline colour tattoos but one that I do have that is not mentioned a lot (I think) is the Technic Nail Polish in Carnival is a dupe for OPI Rainbow Collection.
8. Drugstore product that isn't worth the hype?
For me personally I don't get the hype with the maybelline dream lumi touch but that is probably because it does not go light enough for me to get the desired effect.

(Sorry there is not pictures my stupid camera decided to break on me)

Have you done the I Heart Drugstore Makeup Tag, if so let me know I would love to read it

Flash The Flesh


 When a group of bloggers join together for a chat you know that the final result has to be super!! And so this happened once more when, a few days ago, we were talking about our preferences between mini and maxi and Becky thought that it would be great to create a challenge which goal was to show a little bit more skin and our body (but with style and no vulgarity) showing proudly our curves. And so it was born “Flash the Flesh”.

I really don't like my legs, so when I heard about the idea I knew it was the part of my body I wanted to show. 

I actually decided to give this a go and went on a night out with my legs out.  I am not going to lie I did carry a pair of tights in my clutch just in case. At first I felt really uncomfortable, like everyone was staring and then I was like get over yourself like anyone cares about what you are wearing they are too busy getting on with their own night and ended up being fine
I did put the tights on at the end of the night but that was more for the fact that it was cold and windy and I felt more secure in tights in case the wind blew my skirt up.

Make sure you check out the other lovely ladies in Flash The Flesh

My Top 10 Drugstore Products

I love my high end makeup products, but I also like most of us here I love a good bargain and think that you can find amazing products at the drugstore/hightstreet. 

Here are my top 10 make up products    

Maybelline Dream Touch Blush
This is such an amazing cream blush. It blends in to the skin nicely and doesn't just slide off the cheeks within a few hours. I use it on its own when I am going for a natural look as it gives a natural glow to the skin or as a base for other powder blush when I want my blush to last longer. I have Peach which is a gorgeous peach colour with very subtle shimmer and it 

Revlon Lipsticks
I think Revlon lipsticks are some of the best out there. They are long wearing. They have such gorgeous colours and formulations and for the price they are really hard to beat. I have loads of lipsticks from them but these 3 are my favourite ones.

Pink In The Afternoon (Creme) -Warm Toned Pink
Really Red (Matte) - This is a blue toned bright red.
Smoked Peach (Matte) - Orangey Peach

Loreal Super Liner
This is such an amazing eyeliner, The formula is very black and stays put all day long even with my extremely oily eyelids. It has a sponge applicator which is so easy to use it makes doing eyeliner I a doddle. I have hooded eyes so usually eyeliner ends up all over the top of my eye lids but it doesn't with this. I cannot recommend this product enough and will be repurchasing this for as long as they make it.

2true Cheek And Lip Stain
When I first picked up this little jar I didn't really have high hopes for it as it was only £1.99 and 2true are not known for having great products really BUT they definitely got it right with this. It blends in to the skin without making your foundation patchy and lasts all day. A little bit goes along way so this little  jar will last me a long time. It comes in a bottle like a nail varnish and I just put one or two dots on my cheek and blend it in with the ELF powder brush. You have to be quick though as it dries quickly so if you dont blend it quickly enough it can go streaky

01 Rose 
I had both shades the rose and the pink but I accidentally smashed the pink one so I need to go and pick it up again soon. Rose just gives a gorgeous rosey flush to the cheeks. 

 Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
This is a very popular product in the beauty community and with good reasons. I have tried ALOT of concealers over the years from high end to drugstore and this is definitely one of the best that I have tried. It is an high coverage concealer, which doesn't look cakey on the. It is easy to blend and even goes light enough for me to use and all for the small price of £4.19.

Maybelline Color Tattoo
These cream eyeshadows are amazing dupes for the mac paint pots. They make such good bases but they do crease on me so I have to use a primer. I love using the immortal charcoal when I am doin a smokey eye. I just wised that Maybelline would release some neutral colours in the UK. 

Immortal Charcoal - Dark Grey with subtle shimmer
Pink Gold - Pinky Gold with subtle shimmer
Eternal Gold -  Gold with a lot of shimmer

Natural Collection Blush
Now these are a bargain at £1.99, The packaging is crap but who really cares when the product is actually good quality and the price is so cheap, They do not last all day long but for a good chunk of it, I am not sure if all the blushes are good, some of them are a bit chalky but the two that I have are fine.

Pink Cloud - Natural Pink
Peach Melba - Matte Warm Peach

Sleek Divine Eyeshadow Palette
These palettes are also huge in the beauty community. The storm palette is talked about alot. I have Au Naturel and Storm. The eye shadows are velvety, easy to blend, super pigmented. I haven't swatched them because I am planning on doing a post about my favourite eyeshadow palettes.
Lacrura Eye Brightener                           
This is one of them highlighting concealer pens that are everywhere at the moment. I have used this for over a year now. It covers my dark under eye circles and gives such a lovely glow. It also doesn't crease under the eyes and. I use this as a highlight on my cheek bones and down my nose too on days where I don't really want to wear much makeup. I tried the Maybelline dream lumi concealer but it did not go light enough for me like the aldi one did and I even think it works better on me than the YSL Touché Eclat.

Beauty Things I Suck At Tag

I have seen this tag and I have been really enjoying it, It is nice to know that we all have things that we cannot do when it comes to beauty :)
I have come along way from when I first started doing my makeup. Poking myself in the eye was a regular thing with mascara and eyeliner and crying like a baby becuase it hurt and having to then wipe all the makeup off and start again because I had mascara all down my face. I can now even do false eyelashes but there is still some things that I really cannot do, so here they are;

Moisturizing my body everyday
This is just laziness to be honest but I mean who really has time to moisturizer there body everyday. I need to at least do my arms as I have Keratosis Pilaris pretty bad on them (I will do a post on this soon) but I just never do.

Using eye cream
I am at the age now where I should start wearing eye cream. Prevention is better than cure and all that but I just forget every time.

Getting mascara everywhere
Now, I don't poke it in my eye anymore but because I have super long lashes and really small hooded eyes it means that 9 times out of ten I end up with mascara somewhere on my eyelid messing up my eye shadow.

Washing my makeup brushes
I know, I know it is disgusting and even writing this is actually making me cringe I have gone months and months without washing them and I don't even want to know how long it has been. I have no excuse either it is just laziness. I have tried to wash them more often I even started putting it as a reminder on my phone but that just failed.

These things on my face are the bane of my life I can just never get them to look nice if one is ok the other is so messed up. I cannot get them to look even remotely similar. I know they shouldn't be identical - They should be sisters not twins but my eyebrows don't even look like friends. I either over pluck or fill them in to dark. I just need help!

So what do you suck at, let me know
