Luck in life

Evening, I just really feel like I need to put my thoughts down in writing. This post isn't aimed any anyone or anything in particular but I just need to... Well I don't know really! I guess look back on how well I have done in my life so far and hope that it gives one other person the boost they need. 

It's my 25th birthday next week and I am super excited. I have lots of lovely meals planned with friends and most importantly the family that means the world to me. I guess that's was triggered this post. 

Gosh, this is harder than I thought... Let's start from the start!

So, I wasn't one of those kids that everything fell in place for. My parents split when I was young, I ended up living in a small village with my mum and life was not the best. However, I learned from an early age that to get by in life you can't allow people to drag you down. It causes stress, depression and makes people do crazy things. 

I don't resent my past, I am thankful that it has giving me strength to prove I can do great things for myself! And I sure as hell have done just that. 

I have got the most amazing boyfriend of nearly 8 years, his family really do hold a huge place in my heart. We own our own home together and I can't wait to see what the future holds for us. I completed college, I have a stable job and I have all of this because I worked hard for it. 

I have achieved great things in the last few years and I am really proud of the woman I am today. 

Not matter what your background is just always stay true to yourself. People will pass by and the ones that are worth it will stick around. Don't give up or give in and always rase the bar. 

Thank your for taking the time to read my blabbing. If you want to share a successful story of your life then feel free to comment or post your link below. 

Have a wonderful life and be happy.

A little update

So... As it has been a long time since I have blogged i felt the need to publish a little post to say hi I am still here and why i have taken such a long break.

Basically, my main reason is that I scared myself a little after blogging everyday for one month. It was stressful and towards the end of it I didn't feel like I wanted to do it any more.

I really love reading other peoples blogs but I just don't have the time to take lovey photos and spend time scheduling upcoming posts.

I am going to be an occasional blogger, my focus will predominantly be on my twitter retweeting account YourBlogRT to build my followers.

If you have any question then please do contact me on Twitter or pop a comment below.

#ShareLove End of Week Four

Hi everyone

I am so happy with how this Share Love campaign has gone.

The past 4 weeks I have loved sharing all these bloggers with you.

This week's bloggers are below in case you missed them:

Day 27 was a little different as I have set up a RT twitter account. Please do include @YourBlogRT into your blog post tweets and I will RT you. 

I am going to be taking a break from blogging for the last few days in May as I have no further bloggers on my list and it has been hard work blogging daily.

I really hope you have enjoyed reading the posts as much as I have loved discovering them.

If you would like to catch up on any of the posts you can type #ShareLove into my blog and all the posts will pop up.

Big love to you all.

#ShareLove Day 27


Ok, so when I started this #Sharelove campaign I did it to create awareness for other bloggers.  

Never did I imagination that i would be testing the market to see if I could set up my own RT twitter account.

I have done just that. You may see a new follower call YourBlogRT.  Well that's me! Hi.

Today I am going to be promoting this new twitter account.

This picture is a quick something I have put together. This will not be my formal logo but it is one I am going to use for now whilst I test the water to see if this is something I can get off the ground. 

I try to include RT twitter accounts as much as I can when promoting Rosie's Beauty posts as this has been proven to give my blog more clicks. But I find that they don't RT all the time.  Now I am not saying I will be able to RT every tweet but I will try. 

Now here is where I need your help.  I need to to include me in your posts to create awareness to other bloggers. The more followers the more people are going to see your RT from me. 

Please leave twitter links below and I will follow you.  But for this to work i need you gues to follow me back. 

Looking forward to seeing if this works. 

If you would like to be part of this twitter account please email 

Have a lovely day.

#ShareLove End of Week Three

I am not quite sure I can believe that it is the end of week three already!!
I am going to have to start drafting some product posts for you all to read once this campaign has ended. (That scares me a little!!)

So my thoughts on this week... Up and Down - it hasn't been amazing but at the same time it has by no means been bad.  One of the days I did get very low clicks. Not sure why but hay what can you do!!!

The start of the week was great as I discovered a new blogger to feature and blogged about some amazing bloggers this week so i'm happy.

If you would like to discover my bloggers featured this week you can check the posts below.
In each link you will find ways in which you can follow these bloggers.

I would love to know if you have discovered a new blogger this week. Let me know in the comments below.
Have a lovely afternoon.

Hump day!! Yay. I love this time of the week because I start to get excited about the weekend coming up. With this weekend being a bank holiday and half term next week I have loads of fun things planned as well as time off. Hope you all have fun plans too? 

I had a little bit of a melt down yesterday with my blog. It's going to take time for it to be where I want it so i need to be patient . (I'm impatient and this was difficult for me to find out). So I am therefore going to be using my #ShareLove campaign to look in more details at you lovely bloggers and gain some tips. (Hopefully) 

Onto my lovely blogger today. Aarti, I love the layout of her blog. It's so clean, fresh and user friendly. Her blog posts are well laid out and easy to read.

Wow a week in already and it has been a good week.

On Monday night (4th May) I took part in the blogger chat #BDIB hosted by Charlotte from Colours and Carousels blog.

This was the first time Charlotte had hosted a chat. I have to take my hat off to her.  It was a great chat.  Really full of such positive feedback and comments to one and other.

I promoted my #ShareLove in May posts and got some lovely feedback on what a great idea it is. I cannot thank Olivia from Dungarees and Donuts enough for sparking this idea.

It also made me sit back and think... Each week I am going to do a look back post of the past 6 bloggers starting today. (kind of like a favorites post but about people not products).

These post will be published on the following dates: Today 07/05/15, 14/05/15, 21/05/15 and 28/05/15.

So here goes...

My past 6 bloggers of this week have been:

#ShareLove - What is it all about?

Hi reader's

How are you all?

Welcome back if you are a regular reader and hello if you are a new reader.

During the month of May my blog will take a different focus.  It is going to be all about you lovely bloggers under the heading #ShareLove

Recently, after taking part in a blogger chat I was introduced to a campaign that Olivia from Dungarees and Donuts has created called #ShareLove.

Inspired by this I put out a tweet asking for blog links to anyone who would like to feature on my blog during May.  I am so happy with the response. Thank you! Watch this space if you sent me your link under the tweet I posted.  If you sent me your link but didn't put it under the Tweet then drop me a DM via twitter I am @rosiesbeautyuk or email me as I don't want you to miss out.

Currently, I have 13 confirmed people who will be featured, one person who I am waiting to hear back from and some blogs I would like to promote myself.

Every day from 1 May 2015 until 30 May 2015 a different blogger will be featured.  The post will include your social media links, your blog link and info about what your blog includes.
31 May will be a favorites type post. Still working out how I will do this though so I am not 100% set on what this will include at this stage.

During the campaign I would like to ask the following from you as a reader:
1. Share the love, if you enjoyed reading the post or discover a new blogger through this then tweet about it using the hash tag #ShareLove
2. Leave your link below in the comment.  I want to really encourage people to share who you are as a blogger
3. Positive comments and support only please! All comments on my blog are moderated before published for this reason.

I am very excited about this and I want you all to be excited with me.


Rosie xXx

(All blog posts during this campaign are my own thoughts unless otherwise specified.  I am doing this #ShareLove as I feel it is important to give something back.  The #ShareLove was started by Olivia see link above.  I am not being paid for this.  If there is anything that is offensive to you please email me direct . Photo in this post is my own. Please do not copy without my knowledge. Thanks)

My week off work

I love time off work, who doesn't? Bank holidays are great too as I feel I get extra time off for free.

So what did I get up too on my week off?

Saturday, after finishing work Mr came to meet me for tea at pizza express. I love the Leggera pizza's they are a ring of thin crispy pizza with salad in the middle. I had the Leggera Padanaand it was amazing.
Mr treated us to some fizz and I ran a lovely hot Champneys bubble bath which I shared with you all on Instagram.  

We already agreed that we would have the next two days relaxing together, doing chores and blitzing the house clean.

Wednesday was super fun as me, Mr and his little sis took a trip to Colchester zoo. We have been before but it was the first time for our guest. She loved it. The little sis and I got to feed a Giraffe which was super cool. Didn't get a pic this time round but here is one from our visit before.

Have you ever been licked by a cat? That's what it feels like being licked by a giraffe only wetter. It's not a feeling I want to experience in a hurry again. 

We didn't bother trying to feed the elephants as the line was massive. However, after returning 10 minutes later the line was basically nothing so me and the little sis ran over, took some cabbage and fed the elephant. Mr missed us with his camera first time round so we went round again. (Excuse the massive arm - that's me.)

The whole day was brilliant. If you get a chance you really should go to Colchester zoo. (Book in advance as your ticket will be cheaper)

We had a family day on Thursday.  Nice meal out, walk along the beach and running around after little ones. Very tiring.

We spent the Easter bank holiday weekend at home relaxing and doing the normal weekend jobs, eating and watching films on sky. 

My last day off was bank holiday Monday.  We went into our local city shopping.  I picked up two of the Rita Ora Rimmel nail polishes. One in Roll in the Grass which is a lovely mint green colour.

(Looks kind of blue in the pic sorry) and a lovely lilac shade called Wild-er-Ness. I will show you this colour once I apply it to my nails. 

So there you have it.  That's what I have been up to over the last week.

What have you been up to?

March empties

Hi Readers,

Hope you are all having a cracking Easter (ha sorry couldn't help it!)

Switching things up a little this month. I have tried quite few new things and apart from the Maybelline colour tattoo eye creams I cannot think of a single thing that's really blown me away. So here are the products I have used up this month. (with the exception of one)  

Product 1. Colgate tooth paste. I am a lady who enjoys a glass or two of red wine and this toothpaste is great for getting rid of that horrid purple colour on my teeth that happens when drinking red wine.

Product 2. Nivea diamond touch. Now I am a massive Nivea fan and I do love a lot of there products. They do or have done a range called happy time which is amazing. But this, not so much.
The smell wasn't that amazing which instantly put me off. It is soft on the skin but I just wasn't that big on it.

Product 3. Nivea again. Double effective makeup remover. This is for eyes but I ended up using it all over my face to remove my makeup. You have to give it a good shake before using it otherwise it can leave a greasy feel over the skin. I have a new cleanser/toner combo but if I see this on offer I'll probably buy it again. 

Product 4. Love that body shop offer minis in their products. I have been using the T-tree cleanser. I am a huge fan of all things body shop and use their All in One BB cream daily.
As mentioned I have changed my skin care a little I have purchased the Vitamin E toner. It's lush and I think I want to invest in more products from this range. 

My last two products are make up related. 
Maybelline mega lash has been my everyday mascara for about a year now. As I have changed over to seventeen 3D mascara i am finally able to bin this.
Maybelline do some really great mascara so I will buy more from them i'm sure.
Last up is Superdrugs BB cream. This is the sneaky addition to the group.  I used this up over summer and have been using body shop BB cream over winter (I do not really wear foundation as I find them to heavy on my skin) so when the summer hits I'll go back to this as it gives a super thin coverage. 

So there you have it. My empties post that is replacing my March favorites post. 

Have you tried these products or do you have any to recommend? 

Please also feel free to leave your links below to your favorites or empties from this month.

Life Without Primer... Could you do it?

So this morning I had a massive drama queen moment that I feel  need to share with you all.

If you follow my blog then you may have seen my post about turning our spare room into my beauty room. (If you missed that post you can find it here)

With it being the holidays and all we are having my partner's sister stay over for the next couple of days. This means I am giving her back her bedroom and need to relocate my everyday beauty products. 

In my haste to get ready so I can arrange a new home for my 'stuff' I totally forgot to apply my daily primer!!! 

I can here you all gasping at this horror! 

I just sat there looking at Twitter and thinking how stupid am I! After a poorly worded tweet (which I quickly removed as I made a massive grammatical error) I noted I had a notification to the deleted tweet.  Bex (@bubblybex3 - follow her! she's my hero of the day) tweeted me saying 'turn it into a test day. See how long it lasts'. 

So, within half hour my t zone had gone dry and I can feel my face is no way as soft and smooth as normal. After 3 hours all my foundation and setting powder has sunk into the lines I never knew I had on my forehead and between my brows.  My blusher has gone blotchy too. My eyes are the only thing that still look fine. 

Today I have realised I really do take primer for granted. I can NEVER, EVER, EVER apply make up without this genius creation to the beauty industry. 

Verdict is, foundation is being taken off! I will then apply my primer and go about my day with my normal looking face and not this blotchy, patchy one I created this morning!

I would love to know what primers you love as i am now on a mission to try more. Please leave your primer review links below. 
Have you had any beauty disasters lately that you want to share? I would love to hear about them.

Thanks for reading my disaster. What a drama queen ha ha! I'm off to sort my face out.
