Hello beauties! I haven't posted in a few weeks, and I have a ton of posts I'm dying to write but recently I've just been a really lazy blogger & I've just been enjoying life at the moment. The main reason I've not posted is I've been really poorly. Boo! I had Tonsillitis for the last two weeks and it's been horrible. I've not been able to breathe or sleep properly so I've been a very moody Lucie too. 

I got another new piercing since I've been gone too. I got my 'Rook' pierced which is the little piece of cartlidge above the tragus. I've wanted it pierced for months and just decided to do it one day after college because If I didn't just do it I wouldn't of because I'm a massive wimp. It didn't really hurt as much as I thought it would, it was just very uncomfortable because the space is so small. It's healing nicely and I'm already wanting more, I'm going to be like a pin cushion soon! 

The photo above was taken on a night out before I got ill. As you can tell my pink/purple locks are gone for now! I was finding it hard to keep it looking healthy without taking all the colour out which is a shame because I loved it. I've also bought new hair extensions! They're from a brand called Dream Girl and they're 100% human hair and they cost £79.99 which is a fair price. I love them and they're really good quality. 

I WILL be back with lots of lovely posts for you all including a empties post, favourites & a new hair mask I've discovered that makes my hair feel like liquid gold. I'm in love with it! 

Hope you're all having a lovely week!

The Great Expectations Tag! Hello 2013 ♡

Image: We Heart It.

My first post of 2013 is going to be BritPopPrincess's new tag! I wasn't tagged to do this but there's a mixture of questions & I love her so check her out! 

1. Bad Beauty habit to get rid of? 
For me, it's got to be not removing all of my make-up before bed, I'm going to be honest; I'm quite lazy & once I'm tired I always forget so that's going to be something I want to change. 

2. Beauty secret to add this year? 
I'm going to have to say, better skincare. I want to invest in some more expensive range of skincare because my skin is very sensitive and always looks awful & I want to help it as much as I possibly can. 

3. Last years beauty favourite? 
I think I'm going to have to pick two because I know I wouldn't of been able to live without either this year! So first is Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, which everyone loves & is so cheap! Secondly will have to be Lee Stafford Miracle repair hot shots, they're obviously for hair and they seriously work wonders for damaged/dry hair - I swear by them. 

4. Beauty/Body goal for 2013? 
I have a few! Lose weight to be the main one. Also to get my hair in tip top condition so it grows lovely!

5. Last years biggest fashion mistake? 
I don't really follow 'fashion' if something is in trend and I like it then I'll wear it. This year and every year in fact I really really don't like fur hats, I just think they look ridiculous.

6. This year's fashion trend prediction? 
Well, I don't follow fashion as much as others so I'm not really sure, what a rubbish answer!

7. This years fashion must have? 
Anything that takes my fancy! I have my eye on a new leather jacket from ASOS at the moment so I'm just going to say that.

8. Last year's happiest moment/biggest achievement? 
There isn't a lot for me to choose from because as I've said in previous posts 2012 didn't treat me too well but it has to be still passing my fashion retail course with Distinction grade even though I had to take two months off College right before my final project.

9. Last years biggest challenge? 
Honestly, the whole year was a challenge. Losing my Mother in May was and still is the biggest challenge. 

10. This years key resolution? 
To learn to love myself again, I have some serious self issues and I wan't to solve them in order to love myself . Deeeeeep.

11. Any motto/advice for the year?  
'Never give up, there is no such thing as an ending, just a new beginning.'

I tag everyone to do this! It's a really nice tag, all credit goes to Patricia.

Goodbye 2012 ♡

How can 2012 nearly be over already? So much has happened in 2012 and honestly it's all been bad. 2012 has not been my year at all, I can't wait for this year to end. I have some big dreams for 2013 and it can't be any worse than this year has been. In 2012 I lost someone very close to my heart, went through ultimate changes and a break up. I'm pleased I've made it through & I'm looking forward to 2013.

2013 is all about me. Time for me to be selfish and change my life & the people in it to make me the happiest I can be. I've set some goals/resolutions that I intend on sticking to. I want to learn to love again, I want to learn to love myself again. Concentrate on my family, friends & career. I want to grab any opportunity that comes my way instead of saying 'I better not' I want to start saying 'Why not?' I want to keep everyone I love and maybe add some more loved ones as the year progresses. 

Thank you for all your support through 2012, I've met so many lovely people through my little blog & I'll see you all again in January! 

Please be good to me 2013, 
Love Lucie

Soap & Glory; Sugar Crush Collection. ♡

Hello everyone, & Merry Christmas! I hope you've all had a lovely, relaxing & spoilt Christmas and are looking forward to 2013, I certainly am! 

Today, I want to express my love for Soap & Glory's Sugar Crush line. This is the first S&G product's I've ever used *blogger shock I know!* but I never really tried anything before and I was scared it'd all irritate my skin. This stuff is amazing. The smell is devine. I bought myself the body buttercream a few weeks ago & I've used nearly half a tub already, now I've never been one to religiously butter my skin but with the smell of this I just want to drown myself in it. I got the body wash & scrub for Christmas from my Auntie along with the Calm one, Calm all bubble bath & Mist you madly bodyspray, which are both gorgeous. 

I can honestly say I will not get tired of this scent for a long long time. The lime/citrus in it is so strong and long lasting I cannot get enough. It's definately persuading me to try other products too which I may treat myself to some bits this weekend, yay shopping. 

Body Butter: £10.50
Body Wash: £6.50
Body Scrub: £8.00

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

Nice hopefully! I've not done anything overly naughty this year. 

3. Show us an embarrassing Christmas Card photo! (WE KNOW YOU HAVE ONE OK)
Ahh, we don't do Christmas card photo's in the UK. I don't know anyone who does. I think it might be an American tradition.

Pigs in blankets anyone? 

12. Be Honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
Giving, all the way. I love planning the presents,wrapping them extravagantly and then watching them open it! ahh, love. Of course I like to receive gifts too, but giving feels so much nicer. 

13. Show us your tackiest Christmas attire (ex: Ugly Sweater)

14. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
New York or London, any big busy city really.

Not really no, oh this is sad. When I have my own family I'm going to start loads of lovely traditions!

Maybelline Fit Me Foundaton: ♡

This foundation. I have a love/hate relationship with. I love how lightweight it is, but the colour range is awful. This is the lightest shade and it's really orange on me. I wish 'drug store' foundations had more of a colour range. It really spoils a good foundation. 

Leaving the only negative behind, I do quite like this foundation. I got this free sample from the Maybelline website as I really wanted to try it but I was on my spending ban so finding out they were giving out samples was like a dream! You get 10mls in this little tube and this is meant to last a week but I've had it for around two weeks now and I'm only half way through. 

The coverage on this is medium/buildable and the formula is really lightweight you cannot even feel it on the skin so it's nice to build it up knowing you won't end up cakey. As I said about the colour it's not great, this claims to be for pink toned skin but It's really too dark. I didn't get the wrong colour I got the lightest shade they do & it's still dark but I'm willing to work round that because It's really a lovely foundation. I really recommend.

I absolutely plan on buying the full bottle of this & try out the concealer and powder too!

Have you tried this foundation?
