Slim Down Sunday: Week 55

Finally another successful week of weight loss!  Trust me this feels like a miracle because there was definitely a time throughout these last few months that I thought I had completely lost it and would be back weighing 19 stone or more.  Also losing weight along side someone of a similar weight can be helpful, particularly if you live together as you can eat the same things and motivate each other, which is definitely part of my success this week.

Returning back to the low calorie foods that I used to love has been fab, I think because I haven't eaten them for a while they're back being interesting and fun again as well as I want to start trying a few different meals next week to keep my going and make my meals exciting.  

Finally just before weigh in I had started to feel like me again.  I'm not quite there yet but I feel a lot more slimmer and people have also noticed and commented.  It's funny how it doesn't take that long to get back to a place where I'm more happy and gaining my body confidence back.  

This week I lost 3lbs which brings me to a total lost since I got back from holiday just over two weeks ago of 8.5lbs so I'm delighted and relieved.  I'm hoping to have another good, well planned week where I get further towards my lowest weight again in time for the summer weather, I just know I will feel more comfortable then.

NOTD: Holographic Blue & Floral

It was time to switch up my nails but my time was limited.  I didn't want anything super complicated so I decided to use CND Shellac in Beau and do a glitter fade which is what a lot of my clients have been choosing recently.  
Using Lecente Holographic Glitter in Turquoise it gave a beautiful eye catching fade but I wanted to add a little something extra so I chose a Yours by Sascha Gossen Plate with a floral print that had a complete edge to each floral to stamp over the tips and add that "wow factor" and I really think it does.

These nails are so basic but effective and I can see many clients asking for the same now in various colours!  Please make sure you're following my Facebook page for more design ideas, reviews and tutorials.  I'm also on Instagram & Twitter - @liverpoollashes

Slim Down Sunday: Week 54

I would say that I have been 85% good this week which is a first for me recently.  I've upped my salad game and trying to make sensible choices.  I've even started doing some of the meals I used to do a year ago when I started this like my pizzas using Weight Watchers tortilla wraps which are delicious.  

Emotions have been high this week which will always play a role in weight whether that's stuffing your face or losing your appetite.  Towards the end of the week my appetite had disappeared which was a blessing really as normally I would be binge eating.  

This week I'm pleased to say that this week I have lost five and a half pounds so I'm back on track heading towards where I was.  I'm delighted as I am starting to feel less bloated and a little bit more myself.

NOTD: Pink Tones & Silver

You may have noticed that I posted two Nail Of The Days I quick succession, that's because my middle fingernail on my right hand is one of life's let downs and often decides to snap.  I had my navy sparkles on for less than a week when that bad boy decides to break epically and bitterly take a huge chunk of Shellac off the rest of the nail.  
I decided to keep the silver glitter thumb and ring finger as they were un damaged (for reference they were CND Shellac in Silver Chrome with a layer of Lecente Fireworks in Spark, then a layer of Shellac Clearly Pink and then some CND Additives in Shimmering Silver over it) and work with those.

The colours I chose were CND Shellac in Pink Pursuit (index finger) Hot Pop Pink (middle finger) and Gotcha (little finger.)

To tie in the silver theme I applied some holographic silver foil into my index finger.

I love how I've switched my dark coloured damaged set into something bright and summery.  Hot Pop Pink and Pink Bikini always make me feel really girly as well! Please make sure you're following my Facebook Page for updates on my latest posts, reviews and ideas.  I'm also on Instagram and Twitter - @liverpoollashes
