Product Love | Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

I am in love with these lip balm stains from Revlon. I had heard about them from different bloggers around the world but was never really interested in trying them as I wasn't sure they would live up to the hype. However, I was in my local National Pharmacies last week and they had a member special on which meant these babies were only $10 each! I thought I might give them a try and I am so glad I did.

I picked up two colours to try, "Precious" which is a perfect nude color and the colour I have been wearing everyday to work since I purchased them, and "Cherish" which is a gorgeous hot pink (I could not resist!)

There are a few things that I really love about these lip stains. First of all, they last ALL day which I absolutely love, especially when I am at work or out on the weekend. Even if I do need to reapply, they are so easy to put on without needing a mirror which is an added bonus. Secondly, because they are a "Balm Stain" they are very moisturising for your lips, and I have definitely been noticing a difference in the softness of my lips!

If you have not heard of these, or like me, have not rushed out to try them, I suggest you do because I absolutely adore these and would definitely purchase them again.

Have you tried these before? Are you as in love with them as I am?

New Years Resolutions | Why I Am Not Making Any!

2014 New Year Quotes, This Is Your Year 2014 Make It Happen

Wow 2014 here we are! What a crazy last couple of months with finishing work for the year, Christmas, holidaying in a beautiful place for three and a half weeks including New Years, coming home and catching up on washing etc before finally coming back to work this week. 

I really haven't had a lot of time to think about resolutions, however I did manage to make a decision about them - I'm not going to be making any resolutions this year! Why? Let me tell you.

I cannot remember a time when I have made a New Years resolution and actually kept it. Or I have kept it for a few weeks and the I have slowly slipped back into my bad habits. I am not sure whether it is the pressure of trying to keep the resolutions or the fact that I usually make them when I am on holidays and then reality hits when I am back at work, but I just cannot keep them.

Instead of making New Years resolutions, I am going to slowly start making some changes to both myself and my lifestyle for the better and hopefully by establishing good routines / practices at the beginning of the year, I will actually stick to them.

Be brave, fight for what you believe in & make your dreams your reality.   Happy...

What changes will I be making? A few boring ones such as doing the dishes every night, washing and cleaning regularly and getting up earlier. I will also be making a few changes for myself, including regular yoga (on top of the classes I attend twice a week) more walking, cleaner eating and my biggest aim of this year - being happy and not worrying about things so much!

Are you making resolutions this year? I would love to know if you have been able to stick to them so far!
