Loosing Weight

loosing weight is the most common new years resolution ever, and like loads of other people, I made it again this year and it's now august, guess what? it's not happened.
I'm a stress and emotional eater, and add in having depression and GCSE's, that's a recipe for getting fat. After trying on a lovely pair of jeans two or three days ago, I decided it's time I really really loose weight, I've tried before buy going on a low calorie diet and increasing exercise but nothings ever stuck.

So, tomorrow early I'm going to boots and joining the 'Tony Ferguson Weight Loss Program' and hoping for the best, wish me luck.

I'll update next Monday with how it's gone, if I've lost any weight etc, but I'm not 100% sure I'll be sharing my weight, maybe at the end of this once I've lost a substantial amount of weight I'll show a number and a picture. I'm also going to be combining it with 3 exercise classes a week and increasing my walks with the dogs.

Have any of you struggled to loose weight? if so what did you/are you doing to help? 

PS here's a picture of what I'm aiming for

July Faves

I cannot believe that the months gone by already! I'm still sat here in Florida, I get back on the 5th of august at about 7am so by the time we've driven back up it'll be 10AM, then mission up to Blyth to collection Blake from his holiday home, which he most likely will not want to leave, and the to the kennel to collection her ladyship and bring her home, who will most likely be moody! by the time I get home, it's going to be coming up for 1pm! I'll have been up for 25 hours and about to die of exhaustion so that isn't going to be pleasant.

But, I will be posting up a haul of the things I got, and so far I've got quite alot of stuff, including some lovely older limited edition MAC, but anyway, on to the faves!

Laura Mercier Mineral Powder in Soft Porcelain - I'm in love with this product, it makes my skin look almost flawless and soft, it doesn't look powdery or too matte but just lovely! only problem is that it can make my huge pores stand out a bit more but with a good primer that is no issue

Illamasqua Katie - This gives me the perfect doll like cheeks over the Laura Mercier Powder, it offers natural looking colour and even though it's matte it's got something about it that makes me look healthy. Also like all Illamasqua blushes, it smells amazing!

Sleek Pout Polish in Pink Cadillac - I'm in love with this, it's moisturising, smells and tastes good, the colour is just enough to make your lips look pinky and nice without being too much, it looks pretty and girly, and has become a staple in my quick make up routine.

MAC Feline Eye Kohl - The famous 'blackest black' eye pencil, this month I've really been into just applying a medium-thick line of pencil and smudging it out with the 219 brush to give my lashes a bit more definition.

Sonia Kashuk Domed Multi Purpose Brush - I need like...4 of these! One for powder, one for blush, one for foundation and one for cream blush, it is good at all these things, it's also the softest thing on the planet, and has been applying my Laura Mercier powder so well, it's really impressed me. If you have a chance to get hold of any of the Sonia Kashuk brushes, do so, they're really good brushes and pretty cheap!

Pictures are all off google images, sorry they're not my own.

Sorry that this is quite a small post!
