My name is Jo I am in my 20s and officially a makeup beauty Addict. I have always loved playing with makeup. However It was at the beginning of this year that I finally discovered my passion. I first got into makeup in a big way when I searched for something on Youtube. I typed in the search and found all these girls talking about and experimenting with makeup. From that day on I was hooked. I have made a couple of really good friends on youtube who encouraged me to start blogging. So as I am unable to make videos myself here I am. It's early days but I have some interesting things to come. If you have anything to say about any of my posts please feel free to leave a comment. Thanks Jo x

Sorry for not posting sooner + Youngblood uk

I know I have been a very very bad beauty blogger. I would like to say I have a good reason. for my lack of posts..but if I'm honest I don't, I was taking a little break. I have still been buying though.

This is just a very short post to introduce you to a website i've just discovered I've heard about this brand before from American Bloggers but as far as i know its only just become available in the uk.

I've been chatting to a lovely lady called Jayne who handles all the online communications for Jayne has been nice enough to tell me about some of the products and everything sounds really nice. 

I hope I will get the opportunity to try some of these things at some point soon....I think i need to build up my bank balance though as i'll probably be buying a lot :).

So I think thats all I have to say today. 

Thanks for reading this post I hope you enjoyed and I promise to try harder with posting more regularly. And if you get a minute check out and

Also follow them on twitter @youngblooduk and follow the lovely Jayne @jayneread

Beauty UK Combo Palette 2

Beauty UK were kind enough to send me their 2nd Combo palette.

Combo Palettes have 6 eye shadows and 2 gel liner colours.

I Love this palette. If I had to pick a favourite I would pick this one over the 1st one as the colours are much more wearable on a day to day basis. 

As with the 1st combo palette (that was also sent to me for review purposes) the eye shadow colours are very pigmented. 
The only thing I’m not so keen on with these palettes is that the liners aren’t smudge proof.  If you are looking for a gel liner I wouldn’t pick this for the liner, however I would DEFINITELY recommend this palette. They are so affordable it is worth buying to use the 6 shadows.

Beautyuk are available at Superdrug for I’m pretty sure under £5.

I haven’t included pictures because I am planning to show you all my Beautyuk Collection in another post.

I know this is a short post but I think I've covered most things.  
Hope you enjoyed this mini review. If you have any questions let me know.

Exercise Progress: Week 1

I'm really not sure if you will be interested in this or not, but recently been exercising twice a day. I made a promise to myself to do this 4 - 6 days a week as i'm out every Thursday and weekends can be tricky as we quite often have company.

I thought a good way to keep track of my progress would be to do a weekly blogpost showing you all my progress. (It will also get me blogging more regularly which is something else i've wanted to do.)
Before I get into the results I'll fill you in on how I exercise. some of you may know that I use an electric wheelchair to get around so exercising isn't the easiest thing for me to do.

In order for me to get exercise I use what I call an electric hand bike. It has a number of different speeds and you can do up to 15 mins in 1 go. It records on a little screen the speed which I don't write down, the minutes, repetitions, and calories burned.

Before I continue I just wanted to add a quick disclaimer / sidenote. I'm very lucky to have some Lovely followers who always leave lovely comments. However if anyone does read this and feels the need to say something negative then please just stop reading here. This is very important to me and I personally think I've done well. If you disagree then you're entitled to your opinion but just keep it to yourself. Thanks :)  

Okay... i think I've bored you enough. Here is a day to day break down for week one.

Thanks :)

First Post of 2011!!! Happy New year and couple of questions

Well what can i say, 2010 went soooo quick and I didn't do as much blogging as I wanted to. I am going to try to post a lot more regularly this year.

I have a few posts in mind but I wanted to get your opinions on a few things.

I want to show a few of the things I got for Xmas. Do you mind if I show some non beauty items or would you rather I kept it short and sweet by just showing you the beauty?

Another thing is I am hoping to go shopping at the weekend, but I ordered 4 new Mac paintpots just after christmas. Should I do another short post showing these alone or wait until I go shopping and have more to show?

One more idea I had. I started exercising today, I was thinking of doing a weekly post showing my progress. This way it should keep me going with the workout AND get me blogging more regularly? I may also add some FOTDs + NOTDs to these posts to add some of the beauty side to it.

I know this is a short post but I just wanted to get these questions out there. Leave me a comment telling me your thoughts.

It may be a bit late but to end this post I would like to say Happy New Year and I hope 2011 is a good one for you all.

Please feel free to message me if you dont see a blogpost for while.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
