I Would Like....

I have been going on and on about orange lipstick for at least a year now. I WILL be buying one within the next few months. I really like the look of the M'Orange Lipstick by M.A.C in the picture. I'm still not sure if it's going to look okay hence why I'll have to pay a visit to M.A.C. So that they can help me find the right shade. This is going to be my staple lipstick for the whole of the summer I can feel it tangerine lips here I come!

M.A.C Vegas Volt

Coral lippie is another colour I want to rock this summer. Just two lipsticks will do me fine.....I'm not asking for too much am I??? My friends cousin gets a discount so I'm going to have give her a nudge in my direction.

I'm Now Reading.....

I think I was being a bit ambitious when I set myself the challenge of reading 25 books this year. It’s not impossible but I simply don't have time to complete such a task. Plus some of the books I've got lined up are thicker than an encyclopaedia and it will take me at least a month to finish them.

I've just completed ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ and what a brilliant book it was. It was so emotive and helped me to see what life in Afghanistan is like particularly for women. Most importantly it showed me how real domestic violence is…not good!

I’m now on my third book ‘Beyond Ugly’ the sequel to ‘Ugly’. It’s been on my book shelf for at least a year now and I’ve finally decided to read it. I can’t say ‘Ugly’ was one of my favourite books but I’m going to complete it so that I can go onto my next read ‘The Kite Runner’.

Hemp Is The Way To Go.

These two items have really been my saviour against the cold wintery weather. Thank you Body Shop Hemps range. My friend first told me about Hemp Foot Foot protector early last year and I thought okay I'll check it out until I saw the price tag... £10. I can be so cheap some times it's not good!

I used to use Palmers Cocoa Butter on my feet as they have a tendency to get dry but I can honestly say Hemp is very good. You only need a small amount and the jar should last you at least 6 months. I have been using this products religiously morning and night for the past 2 weeks and I've noticed the difference. Both products leave your skin well moisturised and my feet and hands are left looking well nourished all day long. At least my feet will be ready to slip into my sandals this summer- hoorah!

If you don't fance paying £10 then wait until The Body Shop has a 3 for 2 offer.

Summer Buys?!?!?

Zip Front Strappy Platform Shoe £18 Matalan

These are so nice and summery, from the cream colour to the style...oh so lush! Yes I habitually post shoes that I drool over but they are the one item that will transform your look in second. I may have to pop down to Matalan this week to scoop these. Do you know how hot these would look with a nice floral play suit. Or some khaki trouser and a white vest or just simply a fitted dress.

Orange Zip Detail Mid Heel Shoe £14 Matalan

I love the burnt orange colour of these shoes...I don't own an orange pair of shoes yet (side-eye). I'm still a sucker for zip detailing and I can see myself trotting around the streets of New York in these babies this summer. I'd team them up with a pair of grey feminine tracky bottoms and a body suit or crop top. Harem pants and a nice lace boob tube (don't worry I'd wear something underneath). Or even a blue jumpsuit would look nice, something  similar to the one below.

Chambray Jumpsuit £45 American Apparel

Week 21 Of My Journey Getting To New York.

It's week 21 of my journey getting to New York and I have 21 weeks left until I depart. I find that I'm pushed to work harder as time is ticking. You know how it goes some people work better under pressure.

This week has just been about contacts, contacts and more contacts. I took the plunge and started to call up media companies. Time is flying and I can't rely on e-mails alone. I must confess the 1st company I called in the states I left the phone ring a couple of times and then put it down. Yes I hold my hands up I left fear get the better of me for a split second and then I took the plunge and started to make those all important phone calls. Surprise surprise it wasn't all that bad! Obviously the more companies I call the easier it gets. I was hoping that the companies I contacted would be like yeah sure of course you can and come and work for us. However the general response was to follow up with an e-mail or to contact some one else. I must remember to be patient and that most things don't happen instantly. Just because there's a delay doesn't mean it won't happen! Most importantly I must trust in the Lord.

Just as strong muscles are built by lifting heavier and heavier weights, confidence is built by taking on bigger and bigger challenges (Ralph Marshton). I find this is so the case as my confidence grew when I went to New York two years ago and I'm pretty sure it will grow even more this time round.
