Motivational Monday #3 | | By Chrisseytina

Motivational Monday #3 | | By Chrisseytina

Hey Everyone,
Welcome to another Monday morning, Lets lift our monday morning spirits and look ahead to the next 7 days with positivity and excitement.

This is a lesson i have learnt and will continue to learn the hard way. You know those mistakes you make over and over again? Well this is mine. I find it very hard to let go of friendships and always try to save them or see the best in the other person, even if they are basically idiots to me.

In the times where i have stopped chasing love, affection and attention. I have felt so much calmer and respected myself a whole lot more. The moment you stop chasing things from people who are never going to give it, you are much more aware of the people who are in your life standing round you with everything you want, offering to give it to you in bountiful amounts. 
The moment you stop wasting your time on people that don't care about you, you can give so much to those that do.
You may even find that the moment you stop throwing away your energy on people who never cared, they notice the love and fun and kindness you have and are and, and giving it to your real friends they may have a change of heart.

So the message today is, identify your good and great relationships and nurture them. Identify your non-starter relationships, smile peacefully and stop worrying about them.

What do you think? Have you experience something like this before?

Lots of Love

Budget Buy: Gelly Nail Paint By Barry M | | Chrisseytina Beauty

Budget Buy: Gelly Nail Paint By Barry M | | Chrisseytina Beauty

Hey Everyone, Hope your all well
Today I'm going to be reviewing Barry M Nail Paint

This Nail Paint is Absolutely Amazing, I must say. I Have been using this product none stop since January. I only own the orange one however i do wish to purchase more in the up coming months.

This nail varnish is the equivalent to having your nails done in a salon, its that good. I put this nail varnish on last week and still have had no chips in, its amazing, I can't describe how much i love this product.

Unlike normal Nail varnish it feels thicker on the nail and a bit raised if you know what i mean. where as normal nail varnish is thin and you sometimes have to go over your nails with the varnish more than once. You don't have this problem with this nail varnish.

This nail varnish is great value for money as its affordable and you can get it from your local drugstore.


If you do buy this product please let me know what you think in the comments and let me know what colour you get and what colour i should get :)

Lots of Love

Budget Buy: Vaseline Spray Ad Go | | Chrisseytina Beauty

Budget Buy: Vaseline Spray Ad Go | | Chrisseytina Beauty

Hey Everyone,
This is My Budget Buy of the month!!

Moisturising. So Blah isn't It? 
The task of moisturising is a task on its own, I hate moisturising as it takes to long, however I love that it makes my skin soft afterwards.
When Im in a rush its so hard to get the time to moisturise before leaving the house as i just find it so darn dull.
I even keep moisturisers in my shower room so when i get out the shower i have no excuse.

This is where Vaseline Spray & Go comes in, a quick spritz, almost like a body mist and your all done.

The concept bodes well with the whole lazy thing as the formula is light and easily absorbed, so clothes can be popped on pretty quickly, almost immediately.
Ive been spritzing myself in the essential moisturiser (the yellow can one) which leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.
I used to use the normal moisturiser of these and loved this, but when i discovered this bad boy, i was hooked for life.


 If you have one of these let me know what you think (I'm nosey)  

Lots of Love

Review | | MAC: Huggable Lip Colour | Chrisseytina Beauty

Review | | MAC: Huggable Lip Colour | Chrisseytina Beauty

Hey Everyone,
Here's a Review for ya ;)

Here is one of MAC's limited addition releases, which is their huggable lip colours. Unlike any of their other formulas, these glossy gel textured lipsticks are a lip product closest to a balm with an intense punch of pigment.

The tick texture really do hug the lips for hours and unlike their matte formulas that tend to separate, these fade nicely and the glossy finish they give really do make your lips look very appealing and kissable. 

This shade in the picture is called Commotion. This product is the perfect handbag bold lip, something you carry around on the go and use when needed incase you feel like amping up the colour post desk, pre-dance floor as their is no lip liner needed and no fuss.

This product is certainly one of my favourite that they offer but the bad news is there limited addition, so if you fancy getting your paws on them before they sell out there:


 If you purchase this item please let me know what you think and what colour you try out :)

Lots of Love

Motivational Monday #2 | | by Chrisseytina

Motivational Monday #2

Hey Everyone,

Another Monday, another sprinkle of happiness by Chrisseytina.

On the contrary, I actually quite like Monday's. I feel the Same about Mondays as I do at the start of January (A New Year). Its the chance to start a fresh, and the chance to feel like you are facing life with the best intentions. Monday is a good spirited day.

I choose these words from Pinterest today because I think they are something we can all strive to achieve but unlike dieting, we can enjoy the journey as much as the results.

Leaving beauty doesn't mean leaving an invisible trail of Lady Gaga fragrance in the air as you gracefully waltz by your sexy office colleague, but more leaving behind an attitude.

Since this is a Beauty Blog, their is an understandable tendency to lean very much towards physical, surface beauty and the tools we use to create this.
However, attitudes can be beautiful too.
You know someone has left beauty behind when after talking to them you feel lifted or calmer or happier or motivated. Their beautiful attitude has rubbed off on you and left you all better for it. 
Beautiful, positive, kind, patient, caring, cheerful attitudes are contagious. 

Wouldn't it be amazing this week if we all gave a little bit more focus to the behaviours we display and the attitudes we leave behind?

Whether you are at school, work or home, lets leave our beauty where ever we go.

Lots of Love

What I Got For Valentine's Day 2014

What I got For Valentine's Day 2014

Hey Everyone, I hope you all had a splendid Valentines Day, I know I did XD

First of all, I will show you who got me all these wonderful gifts yesterday...

This is MY wonderful boyfriend, Charlie.
We have nearly been together for 2 years and we have are up's and downs like most couples do, however i know he is the own for me (cheesy i no).
What impresses me about Charlie is that when i have mood swings he is always there for me even when sometimes i don't want him to be, trying to make me happy, however Im quite stubborn so doesn't always work lol, but i love that he always tries. He always puts me first and sometimes I don't appreciate all the little things he does for me such as letting me choose the film, what food we are going to order and changing the music in the car to what i like.
When i type things out on here its like Im talking or telling myself things, but i so rarely tell Charlie and in 2014 I am going to make a conscious effort to let him know that, i love the way he treats me like a lady, Picks me up from at night out at ridiculous times in the morning and i love the way he loves me back.
Seriously He's a Gem.
Last Night to celebrate our love for each other, more than the usual everyday thing. We watched Bridget Jones Diary, with a meal for two CHINESE (nomnomnom) in bed, warm and cosy. 

We also exchanged gifts before all this happened LOL.
These are the things i got from charlie :D

This Is everything I got for valentines Day. As you can see i have been spoiled. 
This blog is mainly to say thank you to by boyfriend for getting me such wonderful present, btw you didn't have to.

If you want to know where these gifts are from, check out my latest video and in the description is where all the gift links are, if you want to check them out, Enjoy.

Let me know what you got up to this valentines day in the comments  bellow, and dont forget to follow :)

Valentines Day Gift Idea's For Him & Her

Valentines Day Gift Idea's For Him & Her

Valentines Day is nearly upon us- and love it or loathe it, there is no escaping the fluffy cards, chocolates and giant teddy bears adoring the shop windows at the moment.

Of course romantic gestures needn't be limited to only one day of the year and i firmly believe you should show your partner how much you love them all year round.
However valentines day is a great excuse to really go to town on a special gift for that special someone- after all who doesn't love being spoiled?!

In my opinion, Everyone loves the classic station flowers to jewellery or fragrance so that is one way to get into your partners good book on this one special day.
If your a bit clueless on what to buy your other half this valentines day, i would suggest a foolproof fragrance. I know the beauty and fragrance would can be a bit of a minefield for men, so to make things easier for you, I've been scoring the net for the perfect presents to treat your lady for this valentines day. And for all you women out there, I've laid out my pick for some grooming gifts for your man which he will be delighted to receive. :)

For Her

This mischievous yet elegant gift set contains the Prada Candy Eau de Toilette- a sweet floral fragrance with a hint of fresh citrus- plus a matching roll-on version of the scent. The cute heart shaped gift box complete with chic black bow gives the set a further touch of luxury- plus it means you get to skip the pesky gift wrapping.

I have tried this limited addition fragrance recently and I can confirm that it is absolutely delectable. Its main notes are of almond, lemon, rose and raspberry jam, which combine it creates a macaroon- sweet scent, which lasts all day. The smell is playful and sweet without being over powering, and the charming apple shaped bottle will sit perfectly on your ladies dressing table.

If your girl is a bit of a beauty buff, win some serious brownie points by presenting her with this luxurious lip lacquer by Guerlain.  The creamy pigmented formula is non-sticky and non-drying, creating a flawless, kissable pout. The jewel rich shades in the collection are named after the seven deadly sins, and the deep red hue luxure- lust in English- is a fitting choice for Valentine's. 

This gorgeous scented candle collaborative creation from one of my favourite make-up artists Daniel Sandler and artisanal candle crafter Jonathan Ward. The organic soy wax- hand-poured by Jonathan himself- is infused with sandalwood, vanilla, light musk, amber and patchouli, which is combine to create a rich, sensual aroma. Perfect to set the mood for a relaxing-Or romantic- evening in!!

For Him
If your dating a particularly picky guy, you can't go wrong with a bit of Ralph Lauren at Valentine's. This gift set contains the Polo Red Eau de Toilette and the scented Polo Red shower gel. The fragrance is inspired by Ralph's love of exquisite cars and as such invokes passion, style and speed whilst staying true to the classic, timeless tone of brand.

As the name suggests, the scent is elegant and refined, suiting men of a similar nature. The understated, oriental fragrance contains notes of fennel and patchouli, and was developed to coincide with the 20th Anniversary of the D&G mens fashion line.

If your boyfriend is a bit lax with his shaving regime, why not drop him a subtle hint by treating him to this luxurious shaving cream. It contains hydrating hyaluronic acid and smoothing eudermic oils, making for a perfect smooth shave- to benefit both you and your man!!

This bold limited addition fragrance exudes audacity and confidence much like the original Black XS, but amps up the passion with notes of cashmeran and rum. The scent is dark and provocative, and rest assure you won't be able to keep your hand off your man once he's doused himself in this potent elixir.

Happy Valentines Girls & Boys!!

Lots of Love

Motivational Monday #1 | | By Christina

Motivational Monday #1 || By Christina

Hello Everyone :)

If you dont already know Its Monday guys!!
So your feeling like the weekend is miles away sitting at your desk/reading on your mobile phone on the commute/feeding the baby/not listening in class beacause Chrisseytina is so thrilling (haha).

I know the feeling. I used to go into my office with a Heavy Heart...

To help you fight this feeling, we are going to be a happy bunch of bunnies and stay motivated. We're going to embrace the week and what it will offer and bring to us.
Its going to be a good one, i can feel in my waters...where ever they may be.

As you can see from the image above i have put together my own little motivate picture with the help of the internet.

I found slogans that will inspire me and help me get through the week. These slogans really did stick in my brain.

There are so many things i want to do but often feel put off or overwhelmed by them. This week i am going to take one of them and start at the very beginning..."its a very good place to start". 
One of the main things i am going to start doing is keeping to a Exercise & Diet routine and try and stick to it as i would like to be a Size 8. 
Im not going to go into the rest because its pretty personal, but i'm glad to be starting and making a dent into my journey.

The reason i am writing this is because there might be someone else who has something they want to start but have never had the chance or time or have even been daunted by such a large task. If thats you come and hold my hand and we will all do it together, as a community.

Feel free to share the big things you are going to achieve this week or even this year below, whether its exactly what your going to do and how you are going to do it, or just that your in it with me, i'd love to hear :)

Are you about to start something big?

Have fun and enjoy it, whatever it is you maybe doing!!

Lots of Love
