Finally Finished

Hi everyone, I thought I'd just let you all know that after 14 years of "The Beach "being released I finally got round to watching it. Now I know it's not a big deal to many people but it is to me. I've stated to watch this film I don't know how many times and today is the first time I have ever seen the end. After watching it through I can now tell you all that I really like it, and I know you've all probably seen it, as its been out for 14 years, but if not then I think you should. So ,ok, this post might be a bit pointless but I just wanted to share this information about my life with you.

Do you have any films that you've started to watch but not seen the end yet? Much love Toni xoxo

Growing up

Slim in 6

Hi everyone, today I decided to introduce you to Slim in 6. This is a workout DVD and I have been loving it at the minute. It's a 6 week program of resistance training. I've been using this for about 2 weeks and I can already see change. In total I've lost about 5lbs and 4.5 inche over my waist, hips and thighs. I think this set is one of the best of its kind that I've tried. Along with the 3 DVD' s you also get a diet plan, measuring tape, weight loss chart and a resistance band. If your looking to shape up this summer I really recommend this for you. It's so easy and because you see it working you stay motivated. At £66.80 this set is quite pricey but for me I feel it was an investment. I'll leave the link below for anyone who wants to take a look.

If any of you have tried this workout set I'd love to hear what you thought of it in the comments. Much love Toni xoxo

Saw it, Pinned it, Done it

Hi everyone, I thought I'd share with you one of the creations in my bedroom.
I saw this on pintrest one day and loved the idea. All you need is some string, mini pegs and a few nails. I put this up above my bed a few days ago and I think it looks amazing. I love photos and thought that this was a really original way to display them.

Do you have any interesting ways to show off your photos? Share your ideas in the comments. Much love Toni xoxo

P.S. I love books

Hi everyone, so from the title some of you may already have guessed what this post is about. If not let me tell you. One of my most favourite things to do is read books. I'll read anything, fantasy, biography, autobiography, I'm not too fussy. One of my all time favourites though are novel's by Cecilia Ahern.

Probably most famous for her book PS, I Love You, Cecilia is an Irish novelist who has had best seller books world wide. I love all her books and own all her novel's.
I find that these books are a very easy read and the descriptions in them make it feel like your watching it on tv. Many of the books I read have films bases on them, I love going to watch them, to see how they have been interpreted, although PS, I Love Youis not one of them. Because this book is so good I didn't want it to be ruined and have decided never to watch it ( for now). I think out of the whole collection The Book of Tomorrowis hands down, my favourite. I have read this book about 5 times and I'm still amazed by how well written it is. If you only ever read one book in your life this should be it!!!!

Have you read any of these books? If you have leave a comment on what you thought of them. Much love Toni xoxo

wreck this journal

Hi everyone, today I thought I'd tell you about my new favourite hobby. My wreak this journal.

The point of this journal is to DESTROY it. Each page has an instruction prompting you to wreck it: poke holes in this page, spill something on that page.... You can be as messy, creative or destructive as you want. I got my journal as a Christmas present and I think it is one of the best gifts of ever been given. Since I received this book I've had so much fun and in my opinion everyone should own this journal.

Here are a few of my completed pages for you to see. If you own one of these journal's or have any creative ideas let me know in the comments. Toni xoxo

Page of good thoughts, scratch using a sharp object, glue staple or tape pages together, rip it up

Questions people ask twins

Hi everyone, so if you read my 20 questions post you will already know that I'm a twin. In this post I have decided to go through some of the most common questions people ask about us. Before I start I should first introduce you all to my twin sister Lian(go see her blog here )
Me and Lian(lian is in the black)
Are you twins?
Well obviously

Which one is older?
Lian is the older twin, by a whole 9 minutes.

Who's taller?
I'm taller by about an inch.

Are they identical?
Yes we are identical twins. Actually we are mirror image, meaning that I'm left handed and Lian is right handed, like looking in a mirror.

Can you tell what each other is thinking?
Simple answer is no we can't.

Do you feel each other's pain?
Again, no we are no more advanced than any other humans.

Do you ever get yourselves mixed up?
I'm not even going to answer

Do you dress the same?
Not since we were about 10 but before that we wore all the same clothes.

That is all the questions I can think of that people have asked me and my sister but if you have any others leave a comment and I will be happy to answer them for you. Toni xoxo

Whats in my bag?

A girls bag is where she stores all her daily essentials and 'bits and bobs' away from the world. You can tell a lot about a person by the contents of her bag. So I have decided so sort out all the bits of paper and old receipts, put away my lose pennies and show you what I lug around with me in my bag.

1. NOTEBOOK to write down all my blog ideas while I'm on the go.
2. KINDLE FIRE HD for reading books or more likely social networking.
3. DIARY for all my important dates. (e.g. my birthday)
4. PEN to write in my notebook and diary.
5. HAND CREAM so I have nice soft hands.
6. DEODORANT so I don't smell. (haha)
7. MIRROR to check my makeup during the day.
8. NAIL FILE in case I chip a nail.
9. HAND SANITIZER to sanitize my hands.
10. PURSE to hold all my pennies.
11.LIP BALM to keep my lips soft (can't see it in the picture)
12. MY MOBILE PHONE for the usual phone things.

 I suppose that is everything, so what's I your bag? Toni xoxo

Primark haul

Hi everyone, So today I went shopping to get my mum some gifts for mothers day and just couldn't resist going in to primark. It been ages since I've been and was really impressed with how sensible I was with my purchase.
The first things I got where these jelly shoes and frilly socks(it's hard to see in the picture but they are pink). I used to love these shoes when I was a kid and when I saw them in primark I got really excited. They were only £4 which I thought was a bargain. I got the socks for £1.50 and thought they'd look cute with shorts or a dress.

I have been wanting a matte nail varnish for a while now so when I saw this top coat for £1 it went straight in to my  basket with this other spotty one. I'm not sure what the spotty one will look like on but it was half price at £1 so I couldn't resist.

When I bought these scrunchies I think I was remembering my childhood and how much I used to love them. I'm not too sure if or when I will ever wear them, oh well for £1 I don't mind.

This is the last thing I bought in primark and I  think it is my favourite. It's an oversize t-shirt/dress thing. I was thinking it would look good with my jellies in the summer or with tights now while it's still a bit cold. It cost £6 and I thought it was a bargain.
              This I how I think I will wear it.

My next purchase was not from primark but I  got it on the same shopping trip and thought I'd share it anyways.

I got this lipstick from superdrug for £2.99. It's from the Little Mix range by collection. This colour is Leigh-Anne and is a deep red. It is highly pigmented and I think it looks lovely on and feels amazing.

Though of the day

"So fed up of this weather. Where is the sun?"

Daily essentials

Hi everyone, a lot of the beauty blogs I have read talk about different makeup they use , different brands etc. Today I want to write about my daily essentials, these are the little things I use when I'm getting ready and doing my makeup, that I couldn't live without, sometimes get overlooked or under appreciated .
So here goes:-
Wipes- Not the most exciting thing on my list but they are essential. So we all know what wipes are for, but if not they are for taking your makeup off. I have used many different brands of wipes and have been really disappointed with them, either they don't smell nice or they are quite dry. At the moment I have been using 'natura' cleansing wipes and I really like them as they smell quite nice and they are very moist. They leave my skin generally cleansed and do "what it says on the packet" as the saying goes.

Moisturiser- With summer just around the corner moisturizing is so important. I'm using Ted Baker origami souffle. I can't describe how good this stuff actually smells. It leaves you skin feeling so soft and moisturizer without leaving the stickiness that you get of some other moisturizers. It also lasts a really long time as you only need to use a small amount.

Lip balm- I hate when my lips go dry, so lip balm is my best friend. I use maybelline baby lips and they are amazing. I think the first one I bought was 'pink punch' and after I used it for about a week I went back and bought all them. The packaging is really cute and they make your lips feel fab. At the minute I'm using 'cherry me' which gives a natural red tint look. Lip balm is one of my most used products as I use it morning, noon and night, I'd be lost without it.

So what do you have that you couldn't live without ?    Toni   xoxo

My real techniques brush collection x

                                                                      Hi everyone,                                                                         Just in case you didn't know these are the real techniques makeup brushes by the well known youtuber(pixiwoo) and makeup artist Samantha Chapman. I saw these brushes on a lot of the YT makeup tutorials I watched and instantly wanted them for my collection. As a whole I love using them and they have become an essential part of my daily makeup routine. So what makes these brushes so amazing? Well, they have really soft, synthetic bristles and each brush has its name written on its side which Is handy for people who are just starting to use makeup. At the moment I only own the brushes that come in sets from the 'core collection', 'starter set' and the 'duo-fiber collection'. Out of all the brushes in my collection my favourite has to be the buffer brush which comes in the core collection. I use this brush to apply my foundation, (although you do get a traditional foundation brush) it takes all the effort away leaving my foundation even with no makeup line in sight. I would definitely recommend these brushes and can't wait to buy more and build my collection. xxx
