Simple Moisturiser & what do you recommend?!

Bonjourrrrrrr* (i don’t know why im speaking French) anyway...
If you follow my Youtube channel, you will know that I suffer from oily skin. It used to be STUPIDLY oily, however I now have it under control, YAY!!!
Due to my skin being so oily, I rarely used to moisturise. I know that no matter what skin type you have, you should always moisturise, but for me, it just did NOT work. But since ive controlled my breakouts and I don’t suffer from oily skin as bad, ive now started getting into moisturisers.
I recently purchased the Oil Balancing Moisturiser by Simple. I absolutely love it. Its really hydrating and it makes my skin feel soft. The product itself is light & fluffy so it doesn’t feel too heavy on my face. The consistency is creamy and dewy. Its not sticky or too thick in anyway. I highly recommend this product if you have oily/combination skin. My cheeks are quite dry, however im oily in my t-zone areas so this product is a winner for me as it works with both my skin types.
Im gonna try out other moisturisers too but I wanted to just let you know that this product is SIMPLY amazeballs J
I don’t remember the price, but it won’t be too expensive because im a cheap bitch and don’t spend lots of money on one item lol. The product is sold in most drug stores, superdrug /boots etc, so go check it out.
Thanks for reading.. Comment below if you recommend any moisturisers.
Love Grace xoxo

Wardrobe, be gone..

Hey :)
Ive recently been thinking about decorating my room. Its been the same for over 4 years now & I feel like its not me.. That then made me think that I need to MAJORLY sort out my wardrobes. I have 2, but one is full of clothes I no longer where. I was going to just throw them all out but then I realised that maybe alot of you guys would like to buy some?
I get complimented daily on my style and this is a great opportunity for you guys to have some of the clothes I wear. I get bored easily and my style is constantly changing. Let me know if you'd like to buy anything.
I have uploaded a video on youtube channel, once that has been up for a few days, I will then be able to tell if it is worth me selling my clothes.
If it is, pictures will be posted on here and money will be exchanged via PAYPAL - please note: this will be the only way I will except means of payment as it is the safest.
I will also upload another video of me wearing all the clothes so you can see what they look like on :)
Thanks for reading..

Update: Partner :) & IMATs.

Firstly, I would like to thank EVERYONE who has ever watched my videos, subscribed to me, followed me on twitter, commented my videos, liked my videos and generally shown interest. You have made it possible for me to become a YOUTUBE PARTNER. Im so freakin happy :) and I cannot stress enough how grateful I am for everyone who has supported me.. The love is overwhelming :) Please stay with me to continue this journey.. Ive got some surprises for you all, very soon.

So, I recently went to IMATs with my friend Natalie, who I met through Youtubing :) Her channel is www.youtube.com/blushblendbeauty Shes amazing at makeup so go check her out.
Whilst there we met up with beautycrush, daniellachristina1, shirlybeniang, britpopprincess and fashionrocksmysocks :) love them all.
Also, I met Pixiwoo.. They were beautiful. Nic is especially striking. They had a chat with me and Natalie, and they were pretty shocked that so many of us watch their vids.. It was crazy!!

The day was so tiring & at kinda disappointing. I don't think the organisers anticipated how busy the event would be. Literally, you couldn't walk anyway.. MAC & Crown Brushes were so over crowded.
I got a few bits though, which you can check out in my IMATs haul + vlog (i'll leave the video below)

The day was jam packed & the makeup that was going on there was just amazinggggggg. I realised that makeup isnt just fun, its an art too :)

Heres some pictures of the day..

I haven't blogged in ages..

.. I just don't think im a "blogging" kinda of person. Id rather interact with me peoples via a video. LOL.
Anyways. So most of you probably know ive been dieting.. (if you dont know, fuck you bitch, where have you been?!?) *only joking*..
So I get weighed every monday and get measured every other monday. Last monday I couldnt be be bothered to post, however I lost 3pounds :):):):):) woohooo. 3pounds in a week is pretty good. To be honest with you though, I was slightly disappointed.. I think I had my hopes up a LITTLE too high.. But, 3pounds is better than nothing right?!
So today is monday, the dreaded motherfucking weigh in day. I really hope ive lost another 3pounds, that will make me happy.. I feel slimmer though :) Ive got a lil more room in my leggings today haha..
I don't particularly care about how much I weigh, I just wanna feel good, but for health reasons, I should get down to a decent weight for my height. Im 5ft7 and should be about 10.5-11stone.. (I so don't weight that) Dont judge me :( im a chunky monkey I know!!
So anyways, this is just a little ramble and a update :)
Im gonna post later on to let you guys know if ive lost anything..

Wish me luck!

New Year, New Me..

New Years Resolution.
I need to lose 4 stone.
So, all my life ive had “weight” issues, I don’t really remember myself without a tummy and without thighs. Ive always wanted to be slim, but it didn’t affect me much when I was a young teen, plus, I never had the motivation.
Anyway, 2011 is the time. Ive been feeling really uncomfortable with what I see in the mirror, and I feel like because ive put on weight, my face is changing. As soon as I don’t like the way my face looks, I know I need to do something about it.
Ive been exercising ALOT and ive been seriously cutting down on my calorie intake.
My workouts consist of cardio, interval training, running and some extreme toning work. I did a workout last night and I woke up this morning feeling like my body had been smashed into a wall. That means its working lol J
Some of my favourite meals are – Wheat free pasta, with pesto sauce and mushrooms, remember, no garlic bread though J
I love lunch the most. I always have pitta bread or a tuna sandwich on brown bread.
I always make sure that my food is tasty, even if its low in fat.. That way you don’t get bored.
Ive measured and weighed myself, on Sunday, I will let you guys know how much ive lost. My aim is about 5pounds J
Are you dieting?
What was your new year’s resolution?
Love Grace x

My love for Tea Tree Water by Lush.

So I had some money left over from Christmas, so I decided to pop into lush. I didn’t have alot to spend so  I picked up their toner for oily skin called “Tea Tree Water”. One word – AMAZING. It does something to my skin that NOTHING has ever done before.
I use the water every night before bed, it refreshes my skin & makes it soft and supple ready for my beauty sleep. It isnt heavy which is FAB &  my skin absorbs it amazingly.
If your looking for a simple toner that works for oily skin then I highly recommend you purchase this product. The price is freakin good. Its only £3.45 & the product is such great quality. In an inexpensive MUST in your beauty kit!!
