FOTD: Quick, before they steal our Toddlers and our swimming pools

Quickly, download the Sims 2 for free before EA takeaway our pools and our toddlers. 

Yes, today is your last chance to download the Sims 2 Ultimate collection using the code 'I-LOVE-THE-SIMS'.

I already own all but one Sims 2 expansion- which was the apartment life.... soooo, why pay for the Liquor when I can get it for free. 
Creating an Origin account and redeeming the code was quick and simple but the bloody game took two whole days to download! I'm not kidding. 
All is good now, I now own it and whenever I get time- I play it. 

But this post isn't airing my thoughts on the Sims 2- this is a Face of the day and I'm just about to step out to go to work! 
I rarely wear make-up when I go to earn the monies, but today I felt like I wanted to. Why not?!

As you can tell, I don't look anything like my sim!

What I used:
-Avon Magix Primer
-Sleek cream to Powder in Shell 
-Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer
-MUA Translucent powder
-Wholesale blusher palette (Peach)

-120 Palette- a medium brown over the lids and a rich brown in the outer 'V' and Black on the lash line
-MUA Eye pencil in Rich Brown (brows)
-MUA Eye Pencil in Black (Waterline)
-GOSH Amaze'n'Length Mascara

That's what I look like today, come and find me- I am currently in BellaDonna Cove seeking the wisdom of a High Evil Witch.

Lush Review: Rub Rub Rub

A few months back, I said that I was going to review this product- well, Ta-da! *Awkwardly gestures review*

Rub,Rub Rub £8.50/330g (Vegan):

You can be forgiven if you assume that this citrus scented, shower scrub would be too coarse to rub onto your skin. 
I assumed the same, until I actually used it a few years back- and loved it. 
But it wasn't until recently that I knew of its multi-purpose uses. 

Not only does it work as a normal scrub, but you can also use it as an exfoliant before you hop into the shower and you can even use it on your hair! 

Its functionality as a scrub, buffs away all the rough skin leaving it soft and smooth- with the added bonus of being gentle too. 

When I used this on my hair, it lathered beautifully but I worried that the salt would knot up my locks- however, when dried, they were left shiny and soft. 
Honestly- for hair, this is like a miracle scrub. 
The scent is fresh and lemony; with a similar fragrance to Whoosh shower Jelly and seanik shampoo bar.

Also, did you know that embedded in the Sakura bath bomb is some Rub, Rub, Rub salt. 
So tell me, what is your favourite Lush Product.

Lifestyle: Pokeball pizza recipe

Pizza I chose you! 
Welcome the new edition to my blog.

Yes, every month I'll be taking infamous foods from video games and re creating them for this portion of the blog. 
I love cooking and video games, so this makes a special variation and caters to those who are just plain awesome foodies such as myself. 

This week, it was all about the Pokeball pizza. 
A bit overdone but awesome nevertheless- not to mention easy to make.

You will Need:
-One Pizza Base 
-Tomato Purée (If your base) comes without the sauce 
-Grated Mozzarella cheese 
-Pepperoni or Chorizo 
-Sliced Black olives. 

How to:
  • First thing is spread a even amount of tomato puree all over the base of your pizza, leaving some room for the crust. 
  • However if your pizza comes with the sauce- like mine did, just skip this step. 
  • Then sprinkle a generous amount of mozzarella cheese all over the sauce applied. 
  • Now, taking your sliced Pepperoni/chorizo- layer this on the top half of the pizza and ensuring that you don't go more than half way over. 
  • It doesn't really matter what sliced meat you use, as long as its of a reddish colour. If you're a vegetarian, you can swap out for a Quorn meat-free alternative or even used beef eater tomatoes. 
  • Centre. Get your sliced olives and create the strip in the centre of the pokeball.
  • Then put in the oven at 200 degrees and cook for 8-10 minutes. 

And Ta-daa. 
You have Pizza, that Gary Oak would be envious of.
