Goodbye Blog....

After much thought I have decided to shut this blog down, for the last 9mths I have barely posted on it with my pregnancy taking over and i haven't felt inspired to blog but I want to get the passion back as I used to LOVE blogging so much so I have decided to have a fresh start, all my followers on here aren't getting notifications of my posts anyway so the posts aren't really going anywhere and although this blog has some fab memories it also has a lot of bad ones, when I set this up just under 2 years ago I wasn't at a happy place and I didn't feel happy, looking back through this blog and the posts and pictures throughout remind me of that and remind me of them times and that girl I WAS and I don't want to be constantly reminded of that unhappy place when my life has now changed so much. After I have got my new blog sorted I will put the new link in a post on here and  I also am going to set up a new TUMBLR and YOUTUBE to start doing my tutorials and vlogs again but this will be over the next coming weeks I want to concentrate on my new blog firstly.

Throughout the last year my life has changed so much, I am at such a good place right now and I finally feel content and truly happy, after many ups and downs im where I want to be, I have the most beautiful baby girl in the world and I love Ashley more than ever and I have the amazing family I always wanted.

I hope you all follow me to my new blog, if not I have enjoyed coming across so many amazing people through blogging and big hugs and kisses to you all.

Rita Ora inspired look

So I got the blogging urge back today, mainly as I got some inspiration from my favourite song right now - R.I.P by Tinie Tempah and Rita Ora 

I LOVE Rita Ora! Loved the last track she was featured on 'Hot right now' aswell, She has this really cool look going on of these wild blonde curls, feline lined eyes and a trademark red pout!

I am really not into red lipstick on myself, don't get me wrong I LOVE red lips but I never seem to wear it as it's too much effort for my 9mths pregnant self so these days abit of pink gloss is as glamourous as I get but today I thought id put the effort in so I could blog!

The red lipstick I used is Rimmel Moisture Renew in 'Rose Passion' I did a blog on it soooo long ago HERE

And I have to say I will be doing this look much more as I liked the outcome, the full items I used -
  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation (shade 201)
  • Rimmel professional eyebrow pencil (black/brown)
  • ELF Eyeshadow Primer
  • MUA Heaven and Earth palette (just for an all over lid neutral shade)
  • L'oreal Telescopic mascara (black)
  • Sleek 'Bad Gal' palette (the shade 'Noir' to line my eyes with an angled eyeliner brush)
  • Rimmel Kohl Pencil (to line my waterline)
  • Rimmel Sunshimmer Bronzer
  • NYX Long Lip pencil to line my lips

I want to try do a part 2 look with maybe a tutorial on her hair so going to have a go at that later this week hopefully 

ALSO can't leave without a bump pic, My baby is due exactly a month tomorrow - 17th may! Eeeeeek how time has flown (been updating my preggo blog too click the link on the sidebar) can't wait to meet her finally :)

Casemate Creatures case......Turn your phone from 'BLAH' to 'WOW'!

I upgraded from my 8520 blackberry  (I know this is a popular phone for MANY people most of my friends and family have the 8520 so if you do too check out the link to accessorize yours) to the 9360 a while ago and when I had my other Blackberry I loved putting fun and funky cases on, mostly to make it look more girlie and pretty but also because I am THE clumsiest person ever and I drop my phone constantly which leaves it with some not so attractive scratches, I briefly looked for cases whem I upgraded and didn't come across many for the 9360 so last week was pleased to come across www.mobilefun.co.uk as they have such a diverse range of technology products, not only phone cases, but phone handsets, Ipod/Ipads and plenty of acessories and other items like gaming acessories, I was pleased to find they had quite a few different products for my 9360 and I ended up choosing the Case-mate Creatures case in 'Xing' which as you can see is a pretty panda!

As an animal lover this was the perfect case for me, they also do it in 'Bubbles the monkey'. The Case-mate creatures are very reasonably priced at £19.95 as it does such a good job of protecting my phone which if I broke would cost me alot of money to fix, 

The case has all the cut out points just perfect unlike alot of cases i've tried which either don't fit well or are shabbily made this is really hard wearing and all you do is pop it on and you're ready to go, you never need to take it off as like I said the cut out points are all totally perfect so the phone still has full functionality as you can see -

AND don't you just LOVE the cute paw charm? (The monkey one comes with a banana which I thought was ridiculously cute too!)
AWW! What fun ways do you jazz up your phones with?

A post I never wanted to find myself writing :(

I am so upset to be writing this, on Monday we found out my cat had got run over just 5 weeks after moving to our new house, it's only been 7mths since our other cat got run over at our old house (that post was HERE), I really wish people would take more care on the road, neither of our houses were on main roads, I put him out last Sunday morning, a decision I regret so much but it was such a warm sunny day and he had been cooped up indoors all night so I wanted to let him enjoy a little play in the sun, when I called him in he never returned so I thought he had gone futher afield to explore but unfortunatley after 2 days of searching for him we found out a local vets had him after some nice person took him there after him having the accident.

It's a few weeks before my baby is born and this has really put a downer on my last few weeks of pregnancy he was only 7mths old, we only got him the end of Oct (you might remember me blogging about him HERE and in my last post I only just uploaded some gorgeous pics of him)

He was such a lovely and very active, playful cat who loved his hugs but loved to explore and not sit still so I hope he is having plenty of fun exploring and going wherever he wants now, RIP my little man x

Im still HERE!

Reading your blogs even though not been commenting as much! I just was shocked to see I hadn't done a post since end of January so thought I would update, I know I keep promising to do more posts and laziness keeps getting the better of me, plus my whole life revolves around baby stuff right now and we moved house last month so internet wasn't sorted and things are all over, I do want to get my blogging mojo back but I can't find it! As i've said before I rarely buy make up now a days, hopefully when baby is here I can get my mojo for blogging back! I am now nearly 8mths pregnant and more uncomfortable every day......enough moaning as I do have some pics to share :)
My cat 'Tiger' with his paws looking after bump :)
Me and my furry baby
Big bump now :)
Big bump again!
My first and only maternity tshirt 'hands off the bump' LOL

My cat also become a momma to 6 kittens, 3 weeks ago......2 tabby, 3 all black and 1 grey one, unfortunately one of the tabbys died a day after the birth so there is just 5, but they are the cutest things EVER I wish we could keep them all, going to be so sad to see them go when they are ready :( Here is the grey one which is the fattest and my favourite!

Maternity clothes/Haul

Because my bump is the size of a small house (LOL) my clothes no longer fit! This is the joy of been 6mths pregnant I guess (along with having NO social life of course! Although I had a fun filled time at my friends Ann Summers party the other day and a lovely family time at bowling yesterday with Ash, his little sis and our niece) Soooo I have put on over a stone in weight I will say it must all be belly as everything else on me seems to have remained the same, from the back I don't even look pregnant but from the front boy am I carrying big! Here is my 6mths pregnant bump n all it's glory -

I love my baby so therefore I love this bump! I refuse to dress in big frumpy baggy things to hide it, i also refuse to pay ridiculous prices for maternity wear that I will not be wearing again after this pregnancy for a long while! So as I have only put weight on where my bump is im quite lucky as it means that alot of bottoms I can fit into still and I also have started LIVING in leggings.....well actually I always have but now they're so comfy too, so all I am doing is that for the bottom half, for the top half I have got some new tops, my criteria is stretchy and still 'me' everything I wear now I would have worn before pregnancy and will wear after, I know most will stretch and lose their shape so I have bought quite a few basic bits from cheap places like primark, anyway here's the pics of the haul -

cream knit jumper dress from a small shop in manchester forgot the name also have the exact one in black ash bought me both these
cream lace and bead detail vest from primark
red crochet back vest from primark
gold jumper from new look
LOVE jumper - ash bought me
sequin tiger jumper - ash bought me too
striped and lace long top, from everything5pounds.com (BARGAIN!)
striped sheer top primark I LOVE these sooooo loose and comfy
Same as the striped one above just a really bright pink
Jewel neck top, i bought this (actually sorry my mum bought it for me!) for when i have somewhere more formal and special to go as the jewel detailing is very glam and it skims over my bump nicely
I think when I get bigger I might need some more clothes but for now these and the stuff I already had are doing fine, it's weird as I really don't want to buy anything for me now im pregnant I just want to spend all my money on baby things, I am actually having to force myself to buy some foundation tomorrow as all the ones I currently have I hate, even tried a new max factor one on sunday and nearly cried i hated it that much.....i'll do a post on that actually! So now im vowing I will only wear Rimmel lasting finish 25hr or the old 16hr one, my face really does not agree with anything but that and it's been my fave for years I don't know why I stray from it, gosh what has happened to the beauty and make up addict in me! My make up look has become so boring too, to be honest the whole moving house and trying to get everything ready for baby is quite stressful so I have just been wearing minimal/plain make up unless I have gone out somewhere, I will start getting some make up looks back up on here though but everything is all a mess at the moment until I move and unpack it all, BUT coming up this week I DO have: 2 perfume reviews, face mask reviews, and my top nail polishes I am using right now for winter so look out for those also check out my most recent updates and follow my pregnancy blog if you haven't already www.victoriaspregnancydiary.blogspot.com

My birthday.....

Just checking in with everyone again! Sunday 15th was my birthday (23!) I had a truly amazing day, it's also my mums on the same day so I spent some time with her and having Sunday lunch together then Ash picked me up and surprised me with a big 'Me 2 U' bear, another teddy and a Hello Kitty cake that was so yum, he got me the sweetest card from the baby that nearly made me cry it was so lovely, he also kindly gave me some money to treat myself as I haven't had much treats since been pregnant (everything i buy is for baby hence the lack of any beauty/fashion posts!) I am so blessed to be having this beautiful baby girl with such an amazing person, I love you ash :)

I mentioned last time we were moving, but due to people been timewasters that fell through which is SO disappointing so we are back at square one but hopefully that might change with abit of luck this week, so it's a stressful time, I am now nearly 6mths pregnant baby is more active than ever, she spends most of the day kicking me and doing backflips, I love the feeling though!

I will hopefully be back to show you some new purchases with my birthday money soon! My mum gave me money for my hair styling/cutting so expect a 'before and after' post later this week! For now I will leave you with some pics :)

Me, BUMP, and Ash when we ventured out New Years Eve :)
