THRIFTY THURSDAYS 😉
Not going to lie, when my friend called me thrifty, I definitely had to Google it 🙈
So here's the definition to save you the hassle - "Using money and other resources carefully and not wastefully"
And that is 100% me👌
But I definitely wasn't always that way....
I used to buy clothes CONSTANTLY.
And would have been mortified at the thought of being seen in the same thing twice.
Was addicted to makeup also.
And skincare products.
Always had to have a backup of everything as I had a phobia of running out.
As that would have meant I couldn't leave the house.
It's quite funny thinking about how much I've changed actually...
I now never buy clothes and only apply makeup for a special occasion if I can be bothered 😂
But one thing that's never changed is how much I love a good bargain🤗
Because what girl doesn't, let's be honest here!?
Since I'm new to this whole blogging thing, I'm definitely not used to being invited to events...
Makes me so excited when ANYTHING is happening in Belfast!!!
And it was like Christmas came early last night at @gordonschemists ...so many amazing deals for Black Friday that you'd just be daft to miss out on!
I hadn't planned on buying anything but couldn't resist myself either and picked up a wee @realtechniques brush set....for only £6.99!! 💁
Cruelty free, vegan brushes I have absolutely loved for years!
You're very welcome 😜
Even though my style or face might not be on fleek, I was totally drooling over these two ABSOLUTE BABES - @cathy_cmpr and @ciaradecarteret 😍
Like seriously how beautiful tho?
And if anyone would like to give me a masterclass in makeup/fashion/hair/standing in a semi attractive way for a photo so you don't look like the most awkward cretin alive, that'd be much appreciated 😉
Anyone started writing their Christmas lists?
What's the number 1 thing on yours this year? 💕
During this Thanksgiving holiday, many people like to take a moment to reflect on the things that they are grateful for. While this is a lovely gesture, it's important for us to recognize the little things that we are grateful for every day and not just today! While we all know that gratitude is good for the soul, it turns out, this positive trait has some compelling health benefits too. "According to a research conducted by the University of California, San Diego, grateful people have a healthier heart. Other studies also suggest that cultivating gratitude boosts immunity system, reduces stress and helps you get more shuteye." (Forbes Magazine)
See below for 5 habits that grateful people practice to enhance health and richness of life:
1. They appreciate the little things in life
2. They volunteer
3. They appreciate their loved ones
4. They keep a gratitude journal
5. They acknowledge that life is not a bed of roses
Enjoy your time with family and loved ones today, and make sure to create a habit of gratitude, every day!
Happy #thanksgiving everyone!!!🙏🙏🙏
@strollerinthecity has been using the Titan by Silk’n twice a week since the start of October, and she is blown away with her results! Brianne uses it as a way to exercise self-care while also improving her skin. Check out her page and blog to follow along with her Titan journey!

For me, self care has really been the biggest challenge for me as a mom. You would think as the kids get older, I would have more time to myself, but it’s proven to be quite the opposite. I cram as much as I can in the five hours of their school day, but in reality, it’s just not enough time. At the beginning of October, I shared my discovery of the newest product from Silk'n, the Titan! And I'm happy to say I'm blown away with the results! 😍sponsored: @silknsolution #TitanxSilkn
Today is governed by the energy of KAN. ⠀
Connect to this energy as you move through your day & notice how it affects you. ⠀
13:20 Dreamspell natural timekeeping is inspired by the Maya calendar and is focused on the 260 day sacred calendar called the Tzolkin. ⠀
Each of us is born under a specific energy that will guide us through our lives, and each day is governed by an archetypal energy. ⠀
When we are aware of these energies, we can engage them in supporting us in powerful & meaningful ways.⠀
These mythologies are deeply connected to natural cycles of evolution – human, plant, animal, planetary and universal. ⠀
The experience of connecting with the wisdom and power of natural, rhythmic, cyclical timekeeping can completely transform our lives. ⠀
Using it daily reminds us that we are both autonomous and connected. It helps us maintain an awareness of our evolution and growth. It helps us be more compassionate, aware, insightful human beings.⠀
It maximizes our empowerment, inspiring greater productivity and integrity. ⠀
It aligns us with meaning, purpose and connectivity. It evokes the mind-set that time is perpetual and never ending. ⠀
It helps us remember that our days-weeks-months-years are constantly cycling. ⠀
It focuses our attention on the fact that we are growing, learning, developing and evolving – physically, psychologically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually, in accordance with the natural order/chaos of the universe. ⠀
In contrast to the false-time effect of the gregorian calendar – Natural Timekeeping connects us to, and helps us mark our time in accordance with natural rhythms and cycles. ⠀
It reminds us that we are an integral part of something immensely important – even if we can’t define what it is…⠀

heyyy guys, so this is my new theme 🐘 hope you enjoy! have soooo many posts for you all! and happy thanksgiving to those who celebrate 🍂
— 🙂 STAGE 1: the nice phase "what's up omg I love you sooo much!" this phase is strictly compliments no teasing • 😅 STAGE 2: the omg am I being too clingy phase this phase usually involves contemplating if you're bothering them with all your texts: "omg am I being too much or too weird?" • 😉 STAGE 3: the couple phase this phase involves you and your best friend acting more like a couple than you and bae, to the point where when bae texts you, you're annoyed it's not your best friend instead • 🤗 STAGE4: the blunt phase this stage involves your best friend telling you everything you don't want to hear but 100% need to hear- You: "I miss him" Her: "F*ck that jerk lets go to the mall" • 😁 STAGE5: the no secrets allowed phase "don't tell anyone what I told you!" You: "of course not never!!" *copy* *paste entire conversation to best friend* we've all done it...countless times • 😒 STAGE 6: fight like a couple phase you argue constantly but can't stay mad because you have gossip to tell and only she will understand it. dammit. • ☺️ STAGE7: typing up arguments phase alright now it's getting real, you type up 75% of your best friends arguments to jealous girls and her bae • 😇 STAGE 8: talk in only inside jokes phase if anyone were to ever read your text messages they would think you're both legit crazy, insanely perverted, and probably should be locked up • 😏 STAGE9: "I'm outside your house and I'm coming in" phase seriously there are no boundaries left and you can definitely call each other best friends • 🤓 STAGE 10: the no convo is off limits phase poop. • 🤗 STAGE 11: the I'm already here phase "I'm already at your house, when are you getting home? and can you pick up something to eat your refrigerator is empty..." • 😎 STAGE 12: my family is your family phase "yeah I'm going to dinner with your mom are you coming?"this is the final stage of friendship --- tag your best friend(s)! 💛 — qotd: which stage are you and your best friend at?
I’m a little bit obsessed with Diet Coke (I know, I know, it’s pretty bad for you - I need the caffeine though as don’t really drink coffee!). I always make sure I buy a couple of bottles in @homebargains as they’re only 49p each there and it stops me buying them for 3x as much whilst I’m out and about. Just a small thing, but things like this really add up. What little things do you do to save money?
🤔Существует очень распространённый миф о том, что кремы в пробниках эффективнее и качественнее, чем в банках. Это делается, чтобы производитель "подсадил" и "развёл" на покупку.
На самом деле это не так, хотя бы потому что делать отдельно производство для пробников совсем невыгодно.
Льют все из одной 200-литровой цистерны. А ещё есть закон, в котором чётко прописано, что в пробниках должен находиться такой же сертифицированный товар, как и основное средство.
🌸Так что при использовании пробников отдайтесь своим ощущениям и наблюдайте за реакцией кожи!
☝🏻️Не стесняйтесь их просить к продавцов-консультантов.
✨А если что-то понравится, смело берите баночку крема, он будет точно такой, как и в пробнике!
Helpful kitchen tip: If you’re a blubbering onion chopping crying like me (but really, it’s that bad), open a bottle of Lemon essential oil, swipe a little under your nose and no tears! I was super skeptical of this at first but it totally works! No more mascara running down my face! 🍋👍🏼💁🏻♀️
If you have a small group to feed, don't spend hours upon hours upon HOURS cooking a big turkey. Grab a 6lb bone in Turkey breast, fill it with all the yummy onions, celery and garlic you got and put that in your #instantpot . A glorious 30 min later, you have the perfect portion for a delightful Thanksgiving day meal! 😍🦃
