The Lo Down - My Fitness and Weightloss Journey

Hey Guys and Dolls,

I'm finally finished college so I have a bit of time to spend on my blog for the next little while. As you all know I've worked really hard over the last couple of months to lose weight and it is tough to say the lease I'm not going to lie. It's hard to live a busy lifestyle and eat healthy too as there are so many unhealthy good options to eat while your on the go.
To date I've lost a good bit of weight which I'm delighted about but I want to work even harder as I'm starting a new Full Time job at the end of the month and I want to look well for it. I'm really excited about starting this new job and I expect really good things to come from it.

I've already started eating healthier and I can notice a difference already in my general health and energy levels. I usually bring my lunch and dinners with me now in lunchboxes too which helps as I don't have to go for any of those unhealthy options now. 

I'm going to start doing weightloss updates again, starting hopefully next week as I knew alot of you guys enjoyed them and I loved writing them too.

So until then I hope you have a lovely weekend,
Laura xx

Makeup Revolution Flawless Palette

Hey Guys and Dolls,

A brand that I haven't tried too many products from is Makeup Revolution and I really don't know why. It's a super affordable English brand that is forever getting rave reviews. I guess I just hadn't tried their products for so long as I wasn't too sure what the quality of the products were going to be like and I needn't of worried as they are really good.
I purchased a couple of palettes from the brand but the first one I'm going to show you is the Makeup Revolution Flawless palette. Lets just say I'm a really big fan of this palette, if you love neutral shades this one is definitely for you. It contains 32 shadows which are a mixture between shimmer and matte and they are all so pigmented. I actually bought this one last week and I'm so glad I did. 
I've been using this palette so much since I bought it and I love it because you can create so many amazing looks with it. Now for the good part, the price! This palette only costs €10.99 which is such amazing value for a highly pigmented eyeshadow palette with 32 shadows. I already have my eye on a couple of other palettes from this brand so keep your eyes out for some more reviews.

Essence Live.Laugh.Celebrate Trend Edition

Hey Guys and Dolls,

As you all know I'm a huge fan of Essence Cosmetics, I've been using it for years, all through school and even now I have so many favourites. I was surprised to hear that they were celebrating their 15th anniversary this year, jeez I feel so old.
To celebrate this momentous occasion Essence Cosmetics brought out the Live.Laugh.Celebrate Trend Edition and I loved it. The stand out product for me is their My Must Haves Palettes that are glammed up. There is also new shades specifically from the Live.Laugh.Celebrate collection to go in them.
I went for a eyeshadow, highlight, blush, lip base, lip powder and setting powder and they are all amazing. The eyeshadow that I've been using the most is called T.G,I.F and its a limited edition matte brown shade. It's beautiful all over the lid for a natural look.

These palettes are available in 4 pan and 8 pan, I bought bought as they are really inexpensive at €1.90. It's €1.90 for each individual pan aswell so that's pretty amazing too. I'm sure this collection is still available in Penneys so snap it up while you still can.
