helping lip colour to stay put

I heard this tip but havent tried it as yet so if you try it let me know what you think.
Its pretty simple, apparently if you apply pressed powder to your lips before applying lipsticks it stays on a lot longer.
Have fun x

preventing makeup from sweating

If you find that you get a lil sweaty dureing the day and your make up tends to melt off, why not try this lil tip.

Try applying a touch of roll deoderant on to your hair line, top lip and chin before putting on your foundation :) x

This is interesting. . .


Clorox vs peroxide VERY interesting and inexpensive. This was written by Becky Ransey of Indiana (a doctor's Wife), and I want to share it with you. She was over recently for coffee and smelled the bleach I was using to clean my toilet and counter tops. This is what she told me. 'I would like to tell you of the benefits of that Plain little ole bottle of 3% peroxide you can get for under $1.00 at any drug store. What does bleach cost?

My husband has been in the medical field for over 36 years, And most doctors don't tell you about peroxide. Have you Ever smelled bleach in a doctor's office? NO!!!

Why? because it smells, and it is not healthy! Ask the nurses who work in the doctor's offices, and ask them if they use bleach at home. They are wiser and know better!

Did you also know bleach was invented in the late 40's? It's chlorine, folks! And it was used to kill our Troops. Peroxide was invented during WWI in the 20's. It was used to save and help cleanse the needs of our troops and hospitals.

Please think about this:

1. Take one capful (the little white cap that comes with the bottle) and hold in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then spit it out. (I do it when I bathe.) No more canker sores, and your teeth will be whiter without expensive pastes. Use it instead of mouthwash.

2. Let your toothbrushes soak in a cup of peroxide to keep them free of germs.

3. Clean your counters and table tops with peroxide to kill germs and leave a fresh smell. Simply put a little on your dishrag when you wipe, or spray it on the counters.

4. After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour peroxide on it to kill salmonella and other bacteria.

5. I had fungus on my feet for years until I sprayed a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every night and let dry.

6. Soak any infections or cuts in 3% peroxide for five to ten minutes several times a day. My husband has seen gangrene that would not heal with any medicine but was healed by soaking in peroxide.

7. Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and Water and keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without Harming your septic system like bleach or most other Disinfectants will.

8. Tilt your head back and spray into nostrils with your 50/50 mixture whenever you have a cold, plugged sinus. It will bubble and help to kill the bacteria. Hold for a few minutes, and then blow your nose into a tissue.

9. If you have a terrible toothache and cannot get to a dentist right away, put a capful of 3% peroxide into your mouth and hold it for ten minutes several times a day. The pain will lessen greatly.

10. And of course, if you like a natural look to your hair, spray the 50/50 solution on your wet hair after a shower and comb it through. You will not have the peroxide-burnt blonde hair like the hair dye packages but more natural highlights if your hair is a light brown, reddish, or dirty blonde. It also lightens gradually, so it's not a drastic change.

11. Put half a bottle of peroxide in your bath to help get rid of boils, fungus, or other skin infections.

12. You can also add a cup of peroxide instead of bleach to a load of whites in your laundry to whiten them. If there is blood on clothing, pour it directly on the soiled spot. Let it sit for a minute, then rub it and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary.

13. I use peroxide to clean my mirrors. There is no smearing, which is why I love it so much for this.

14. Another place it's great is in the bathroom, if someone has been careless & has peed on the floor around the toilet & it's begun to smell of urine. Just put some peroxide in a spray bottle & spray. In the blink of any eye all the smell will be gone & the bacteria eliminated!

I could go on and on. It is a little brown bottle no home should be without! With prices of most necessities rising, I'm glad there's a way to save tons of money in such a simple, healthy manner! ' This information really woke me up. I hope you gain something from it, too.

You made the papers today Little Big Man, but we always knew you were a star!

My wonderful daughter and our family have been putting together a petition to stop the council from removing ornaments and memrobillia from the graves in our cemetary.
Its been a bit of a battle as our local council have been going into shops and buisnesses local to us and collecting the signatures without informing us or getting permission in the hopes of reducing the number of signatures handed in.
We were told we would need at least 500 sigs just to get the council to look at it, we have nearly doubled that already and will continue to collect them for the next while.
please check out the link to the Chronicle newspaper coverage of our story by clicking on the title of this post :) x

Appologies my friends

Appologies for getting side tracked and not keeping my health and fitness diary up to speed this past week or so, life stepped in as it often does these days and takes things in another direction which may result in the normal things taking a backward step or being put on hold.

I will be taking a lil time out from the routine of it all for the rest of this week, i just want to be able to breathe easy and be naughty if i so wish, life says its warrented in my case right now .

Tuesdays Weigh In - Week Two

After a very up and down week last week between my health and a touch of depression, i wasnt suprised to learn that id actually put on a lb this time.

I dont intend to get too disheartened by it as i know i struggled and had several cheats ,what with easter and a birthday tea and my drink night on saturday night.
The thing is to go back to week one and try to stick to that just to get myself back on track, it wont be easy as theres still a lot of chocolate eggs floating around and my family have become chippy - a - holics all of a sudden and its driving me nuts lol.

Onwards and upwards my friends :) xxx

Sundays Report

Today we celebrated my 8 year old nephews birthday, so a buffet dinner it was,
sandwiches, sausage rolls, pizza and a bit of chocolate cake, what is a girl to do lol.

Later that evening i had s.w potato fritters, chops and beans
In the evening i had a very naughty packet of rolos, but its my only temptation as i made sure no one bought me easter eggs, i got go ahead biscuits instead for easter.

My new weigh in starts on tuesady but i am hopeing to have a better week this week without so many cheats or slip ups, but it was the exercise i was hopeing to get back on track as i hardly had any at all this past week.
But unfortunately that may prove a bit of a problem this week as i will be away from home a lot this week so il just have to do the best i can with my eating and exercise as and when i can.

Unfortunately life doesnt give me too many breaks of late so il go with the flow and keep you all posted.
