uh oh the dress doesn't fit!

Hello Lovelies,

Kim Here! It's about 3 months till Kerry's wedding so I thought I'd check if the bridesmaid dress we bought in the sale 7 months ago still fits. I knew I had put on weight but brushed it under the carpet and didn't think it was as bad as it is, to my horror...THE DRESS DOESN'T FIT.

I don't believe in weighing yourself and getting down to a certain 'weight' because really that doesn't matter. Muscle is more dense than fat therefore, one pound of fat occupies less space in the body than one pound of fat, so you could lose inches but stay the same weight!

I'm actually embarrassed to tell you the measurements, that's how bad I feel it's got. I've gone up around two dress sizes in 6 months and this is what I need to lose before I can fit back into the dress.

The Plan
Walk 45 mins a day
3 full body circuits a week (body weight)
No more takeaways & convenience food.

I'll keep you posted on my progress, what I'm eating and hopefully some progress pictures! Hopefully Kerry will be joining me in this journey to lose her baby weight!

If you have any inch loss ideas leave them in the comments below!

Superdrug Haul

Hello Lovelies, Kim here!

I saw the naked 3 dupe (make up revolution iconic 3) in a video posted by Rosanna Pierce. As Kerry's wedding is cadbury purple themed I jumped at the first chance I had to get this palette because it has a lot of pink and purple tones in, unfortunately you can't just go into superdrug and buy one thing!
Make up revolution Iconic 3 - £4
L'Oreal Wild Ombres - £8.00
Touch of Silver Shampoo - £3.95
Eylure Individual Lashes - £2.99
Micella Cleansing Water - £4.00
Nivea Exfoliating Scrub - £2.95
The majority of this stuff has been bought to try out looks for the wedding on both the bride (Kerry) and myself, the bridesmaid. I've never used individual lashes before so I don't know how that is going to work out, if you have any tips on applying these I'd really appreciate it!
I'm also going to be giving myself ombre/highlights using the wild ombres kit, I'll let you know how it turns out, I might even do a video on it.
