Motivational Monday

'iya loves!

It's time for another Monday! I know Monday's aren't everyone's favourite days.. for me though I love Monday's! It's a start of a brand new week.. Plan what you're doing for the week.. set some goals and smash them! Positive attitude no neg... You'll find you'll be so much happier if you let go of the negativity in your life. If you start to think of something negative, before you say it turn your thoughts around and turn that negative into a positive. Instead of ignoring someone's negative status on social media.. give them a boost! You'll see how good it makes you feel and you never know you could be the only person to say something kind to them that day and it could make their day! It's truly amazing what the power of words can do. 

Last week was very productive for me! I got back on track with my plans, and cooked some amazing meals! I'll insert pictures for you! I've managed to get my creativeness back with my meals. That's one of the things I absolutely LOVE about being a part of cece project! The meals you can create are so good and you don't even feel like you're dieting.. WHY?! because it's a lifestyle change... if you guys want I'll do a post all about ceceproject/juice plus very soon! 


Sweet Potato Jacket topped with Chicken in a homemade sauce (yogurt, mustard, lemon juice, herbs, salt & pepper) and a side salad.


Sweet potato mash with spring onions, salmon fillet and oven roasted veggies.


1/2 a tin of New Covent Garden Skinny tomato, lentil vegetable soup with a cheeky squeeze of mayo!


Greek yogurt, strawberries, warmed up nakd bar, dark chocolate chips and a squeeze of choc shot.

As you can see I'm definitely back on the wagon and my body is thanking me so much for it! Even though I'm still ill I'm feeling so much better for it! I'm still trying to get over my cold/flu that I've had for the past week but I'm slowly but surely getting there! I'm also back to work today after two lovely weeks off! As much as I enjoy my job I've enjoyed having the time off! It was much needed and has allowed me to get back into my cece journey, and get back into blogging and youtube! It's been very productive!! 

Yesterday I uploaded a tutorial on my channel which was long over due! I really do mean long over due as well haha! It was requested last year, I filmed it last year.. only edited the video this week! I'm so happy with it came out! I'd honestly love to wear this for a night out or something like that! I love creating make up looks using bold colours they're so fun and daring! Go over to my channel and give it a cheeky like! Also don't forget to leave me any requests for tutorials or any other videos that you'd like to see! I'll leave the video below for you lovelies! 



Have a great week lovelies :)

Love Always,

Simple | Kind To Skin Vital Vitamin Night Cream

'iya loves,




I have been using this night cream for well over a year now and it is one that I always go back to. Purely and simply because it is exactly what it says it is.. simple.. kind to skin... and a night cream. It's got nothing fancy in it.. none of those ingredients where you don't know what they are or what they mean. My skin is very sensitive and will break out with a lot of the supermarket/drugstore brands if I'm not careful. I cannot use anything that is too harsh, without my skin paying for it! I stupidly made the mistake when I first purchased it of applying way too much and then wondered why I hit the bottom so quickly! This is one of those products where you do not need to do that. A little bit goes a long way and gives you the best results. I've used two of these up already just opened my third tub! Simple as a brand is just one of my go to safe options for skincare. If I was to leave my skincare at home and was staying elsewhere I would always purchase this as I know it works for my skin! If you're on the look out for a night cream that isn't fancy, actually works or looking to introduce one into your skincare night time routine then this could be for you. It's affordable which is another thing I love... who doesn't love affordable products?! You can often find this on offer in either the supermarkets or drugstores! Half price right now in Superdrug! ;) Find it here.

Love Always,

'24

'iya loves,

I cannot believe it has almost been a year since I last posted on here! That is absolutely crazy. I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things on here as I have missed doing this so much! So what's been happening? I got promoted at work, I've moved house.. I started Juice Plus and also work for them too and I also turned the big 24! 

So last Thursday I said goodbye to 23 and turned 24. I had a lovely day, got spoilt loads which happens to everyone on their birthdays right?! I got to see my nieces and they were so excited.. they always are when it comes to birthdays! We don't see them as much now we're not literally 5 minutes down the road from them! I finally got an elephant balloon. Yes that was one of my favourite things aha! I don't know about you but I will never get too old for a good ol' helium balloon ;) Between my mum and my sister they fuelled my elephant collection even more.. that's the norm for birthdays.. you can never go wrong if you get something elephant related. I'm sure I must have picked the most indulgent cake possible.. a triple layer chocolate cake.. which somehow ended up having an elephant topper on it.. no idea how that happened ;)

Sticking with the norm.. we went out for a meal for my birthday. We went to one of my favourite places Frankie's and Benny's. I absolutely love it the food is so good. Italian is my favourite cuisine. Like the last time we went there I got sung too.. I was not expecting it at all as the last time my cake was actually brought with us. Candles we're put in my brownies..which we're also delicious. I was going to do quite subtle make up.. you know you plan it all out.. then you catch yourself getting gradually smokier and darker... by that point you've added black to your crease and you're looking sassy as hell. That was me Thursday afternoon! Pre drinks whilst getting ready, cheeky vodka's and cranberry... moving slowly onto cocktails out for the meal.. then getting back to having rosé.. it's safe to say I had a great time!!

Friday, this was the start of my partying weekend. Myself, my two best friends Amanda and Char we're going to be going out this night as well but we decided to stay in. I'm so glad we did, we had such a great time. Alcohol, takeaway and another birthday cake. Amanda surprised me by decorating her flat with balloons and banners and also by making a birthday cake for me.. she so didn't have to do that but it was so lovely. Girly nights like that are what it's all about. We don't see each other half as much as we used to due to work but when we do we spend all day/night cry laughing! That's the best kind of feeling!! 

Saturday came around and the morning turned into a bit of a pamper session. That's always what we like to do before a night out! Gets us nice and chilled ready to enjoy our evening!! We spent the day watching Sex and the City as I've got Amanda hooked on it! We had lots of naughty food, and started drinking cocktails again at 2 in the afternoon.. 
The real pre drinking begun when Char turned up.. Malibu ratios through the roof along with so many Sambuca shots. Again I had planned what I was doing with my eye make up but let's be honest that didn't make it any quicker to do. I used my favourite Urban Decay palette.. the electric palette. It's absolutely gorgeous for any of you ladies that love a bit of colour on the eyelids. I even bought Amanda one as she loves mine and kept threatening to steal it! We cannot be having that! I must say it took me about 4 hours to get ready.. I had to curl my hair twice and use so much hairspray as it just was not holding. I was so happy with how my make up turned out and yes I was feeling very sassy! We partied the night away and it was so much fun! I hadn't been out since last September and that was for Amanda's birthday. 

Sunday.. what a day that was yesterday!! I've never had a hangover like the one I had yesterday it was so bad! It was so worth it but I didn't fully recover until this morning.. whoops... Me and Amanda has a real girly day yesterday just binge watching Sex and the City after going to the shop to get loads of junk food to nurse our hangovers. Those are the kind of days I live for! 

I absolutely loved my 3 days of partying it was honestly such a good time and we've got memories to last us a life time! I'll leave some pictures down below for you! 
















































All of these pictures bring me so much joy to look at! I was obviously loving life with my girls on the saturday night where we're all incredibly drunk but that's what life is about! Making memories to last a life time with the ones you love!

Have a wonderful week guys! 

Love,
