Hair and Beauty [Social Sunday]

And we’re back for another Sunday Social. I’m feeling very tired, and I can’t switch my brain on to say something meaningful here. So I’m going to get on with it…
 
1. How old were you when you started wearing makeup?
I wore nail varnish ridiculously early. But face make up didn’t come until about 15/16 (I was too scared to get in trouble at school and I wore glasses so I didn’t see the point).
 
2. What are your top 3 favorite beauty products?
I love my Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang, Maybelline Falsies Mascara, and my Sleek Blush in Rose Gold.
 
3. What is one makeup product you don't leave home without?
I don’t wear make up on a daily basis (a mixture of teaching and glasses just means I can’t be bothered in the mornings!), so I always make sure to have some sort of lip balm with me.
 
4. What is your daily beauty routine?
I brush mousse through my hair, and dry with a diffuser to bring out my curls. Then I use a selection of Botanics products on my face (cleanser and toner), and finish with some moisturiser.
 
5. What is your favorite hair/makeup product you've discovered in the last year?
I love two things, both for my hair. First, my Panasonic Nanoe hairdryer (it makes it so shiny!), and my BaByliss Big Hair Spinning Brush (it helps to tame my frizzy mess, and make is nice and bouncy).
 
And there we go. Another Sunday is almost over… Until next week!

A Challenge for You… 100 Happy Days

I’m not sure how many of you have seen this, or even taking part in it but it’s something that I have been doing for a week now. Not only is it making me Instagram more, I’m also noticing those little things in life that make you happy.

100HappyDays


As they say on the website, 71% of people don’t complete the challenge. Why not pop over there, see what it’s all about and then see if you can complete it.

I’m off to a charity quiz night shortly. So I will update this post with my first 7 days once a) I have returned and b) I’ve worked out how to get Instagram pictures into my post (any help would be greatly appreciated).

Rule of Three [Sunday Social]

Hello, hello, hello! What a week it’s been. I was sent home from work on Monday and then on Wednesday I achieved a 1stone weight loss (so far!!!). Hooray! AND I bought a few size 14 tops, which I’ve not worn for quite a few years. It’s all so exciting.

Now onto Sunday Social (with a fancy new button)…

1. Top 3 favorite kinds of food
Chocolate (obvs), Italian, and tapas.
 
2. First 3 things you do in the morning
Check Facebook & Instagram, grab my glasses, and snooze my alarm (for at least half an hour).
 
3. Last 3 things you do at night
Check Facebook & Instagram (addicted?), plug my phone in, and play some sort of game on the iPad.
 
4. 3 TV shows you NEVER miss
Parks and Rec (love a bit of Leslie), Brooklyn Nine-Nine (has anyone watched it? I love!), and Pretty Little Liars (I can’t seem to work anything out, who is A?!).
 
5. 3 places you want to visit
New York, New York, and New York!
 
6. 3 people you can always count on
My lovely mum, and my two lovely bridesmaids.

And there we are. Sunday Social is done for another week. See you next time!

Reintroductions [Sunday Social]

Hello there! And welcome to the second Sunday Social of 2014… We’re 12 days in and I am still writing 2013 in the date at school. Speaking of school, it’s 7pm and I’ve had the realisation I have planned nothing for the coming week (actually, I’ve planned half a lesson about Ancient Egypt – give myself some credit) so I’m now on a mad rush. Sorry kids!

1. What is the name of your blog? How long have you been blogging?
My blog is called Margarita Rambles and I’ve been blogging (not very consistently) since April 2013.
 
2. Why do you blog?
I started as a way to make myself do more London things (that never happened) because I planned to write about this new London life I was experiencing. Then it just changed into something that allows me to just sit here and write about whatever I want, without having to listen to anyone.
 
3. What is the first blog you ever followed?
I’ll have to get back to you on that one.
 
4. What is your favorite post you wrote in 2013?
Probably my Elephants and Engagements post because it takes me back to a wonderful day!
 
5. What are your blogging goals for 2014?
BLOG MORE! Seriously, I really want to make more of an effort with this blog because sometimes I just forget, or I don’t give myself the time to do a proper post.
 
6. Top 3 favorite blogs to follow?
Ah the pressure for this one! I have to admit I’ve not even looked at any blogs recently so I’m going to update this when I’ve had a chance to get involved!
 
Happy Sunday Smile

Bridesmaid/Usherette Cards

I’m back with some more wedding talk… Hooray! Even though the wedding is far, far away, I am trying to get some minor things sorted.

One of the those, that I did over the weekend, was my bridesmaid and usherette cards. I’ve decided to have two bridesmaids, and three usherettes for the day. I’ve already asked them informally but I thought it’d be nice to ask them formally too. So here’s way I did.

Bridesmaid Cards

I nipped to my local stationary shop to stock up on resources… I got some silver glitter paper, pink paper (our colour sheme is grey and pink), some little ribbons, and some cream card. I also got an italic pen to write the envelopes with.

I’m not going to go through it, because I think it’s pretty self explanatory. But  wanted to share them because I love them! I really hope the girls like them too… Here’s hoping.

The Year to Come [Sunday Social]

Oh here we are again. Today is the last day of the Christmas holidays before it’s back to school tomorrow. I don’t think I’m quite ready (I’m actually scrambling to get all my planning done…).
 
But there’s always time for a little Sunday Social…
 
1. Do you plan to change any of your eating habits in the new year?
I started Slimming World a few months ago to get ready for wedding dresses, so I’ve already started. I’ve started eating a lot more fruit and vegetables with my meals and it’s helped a bunch.
 
2. Any workout tips to get us back in shape after the holidays?
I am most definitely not the person to go to for this. However I’ve been doing a Davina McCall fitness DVD which is incredible.
 
3. What is your favorite thing you did over the holidays?
I just spent time with family and friends, which I don’t get to do much in term time. Nice and relaxed.
 
4. What is something you hope that you accomplish in 2014 that you did not in 2013?
I’d like to get back into blogging! And try to establish myself just a little bit more.
 
5. Name 3 things happening this year you are excited about and why.
I’m heading to Chile to see my family in Summer!!!
I’ll officially finish (and hopefully pass) my first full year of teaching.
General wedding planning.
 
There we go. I’ll be back next Sunday when it’s all about blogging.
