When I was little, I always dreamt of being a fashion designer (along with a teacher, a singer, an actress, a make-up artist, a baker etc!) and I have always loved clothes. It finally clicked to me that it is possible to make your own clothes last year, so I bought some material and got stuck into it. I had always said that I would like a mannequin since I can remember, but I talk so much that I didn’t think my parents actually listened to me, just agreed. But it turns out that they do actually listen, so roll on 3rd February 2012 and I was given a mannequin as a birthday gift off my parents. At first my friends and I just dressed it up for fun, and then I realized that mannequins really are multi-use! I have discovered that, along with using them to help when making clothes, that you can use them for holding earrings. We all know that earrings can be difficult to keep track of if you don’t have a jewellery box, and they can ruin (especially feather earrings,) so I keep a lot of my earrings on my mannequin.

The Trevor Sorbie moisture mask is a great way to get hair shiny and as obsessed Dom and I are with hair products; i just couldn't not try them. When I was shopping I decided to look around the cosmetic shops when i came across the Trevor Sorbie products which i had never come across or even tried. I bought the moisture mask and a couple of the other products which i will blog to you about once i've tried them. The mask is great from the times i've used it and gives your hair the shine and moisture needed. This product is to be used once a week and just really gives your hair an extra shine. The moisture mask is only part of a large range called the beautiful hair collection. This contains shampoos, conditioners, cream, mold masks and sprays which suit your hair type. This range contains beautifully straightened, beautifully moisturised, beautiful volume and curl defining products. The products are usually in the price range of £5-£6 but are now in Boots as 2 for £6. The only thing really is that if you do use too much of the product when using it each week; hair may become more oily than expected.

I'm so lucky to have 2 older sisters to help me when purchasing make up. I remember http://josieowen.blogspot.co.uk/ taking me to the MAC counter in Harvey Nicholls in
Leeds for the first time ever about 3 years ago, and I fell in love with make up and everything about it! I then got a full face of make up done, only with tinted moisturiser, blusher and mineralize skin finish though. I didn't want too much on, I was only about 12! Then another time I was at the Chanel counter and Josie made sure I was given the correct foundation for my skin tone, and that the woman wasn't too snobby with me! Hehe.
Anyways (going a bit off subject!) this foundation is amazing honestly! I had to work with it a bit at first as it seemed a bit orange for me, but now i know to put it on evenly and it makes my skin look flawless. I always feel extra confident when I wear this, so thank you http://josieowen.blogspot.co.uk/ ! xo

Today I am wearing a dress that I bought about 2 or 3 months ago from Matalan. It can be worn with tights and leggings :) I found this in a magazine and fell in love with it's tribal/aztec print. The dress is good for all occasions, it can be a simple day dress or dressed up for going out. Every one needs a nice throw-on outfit like this!
I have worn it as a simple day dress, and paired it with this amazing ring I found in the Derby Westfield centre, in a shop called Muse. I buy most of my jewellery from this shop, and even though I bought it 2 months ago, I am still so please to have found this ring there. I had been looking for one like this for ages! xo
My two older sisters’ are always generously giving me clothes, make up, accessories etc. They buy them, try them out and decide they don't want them. So, as they are both very similar in make up shades and tastes in clothes etc, they both end up giving them to me! I probably get something new off them at least once every two weeks. Lucky me :) And on Sunday, one of my sisters came home from her boyfriend's house and decided that the top she was wearing (which she had only just put on) was too short for her and she didn't like it. So she stood there and took it off, offering it to me! (Don't worry, she had a top on underneath!) This is the top:

I love the I love... shower scrubs, i was recently bought the i love products as a Christmas present and since then i have kept on using them. I had seen them before and was wondering whether to buy some of the products but i decided not to. Then a family member bought me some of the products at Christmas and i have began to keep using the products for a few months. Only the other day i was telling Dom how much i liked the product especially the shower scrubs. The shower scrubs are great for keeping skin smooth and feeling refreshed. The products are not expensive what so ever; at the low price of £2.05 but the products are only sold in the store Superdrug. I really recommend theese products and also they aren't pricey at all :)
