Hi there lovelies,

I know I've not been doing that many beauty videos over the past few months.... 
Sorry about that....  I've been a little bit of a  busy bee looking after Baby Lewis... 
Now though Baby Lewis and I have a schedule in place which allows me to write blogs and film more beauty videos therefore make sure you watch this space... 

First up an unboxing video....

A Perfect Red Lip with The Body Shop

Wednesday, 15 April 2015

By now you may have guessed that red is my favourite colour! 


Below is a quick step by step guide on how you can create a long lasting red lip using just three fab products from The Body Shop.

1. Use The Body Shop's lipscuff all over the lips to remove any dry skin. Then wipe away using a damp cotton pad.

2. Pat the lips dry with tissue then apply a layer of The Body Shop's Lip & Cheek Stain 03 over the lips. Let this dry.

3. Apply The Body Shop's Colour Crush Lipstick in Shade 115 evenly over the lips following the natural lips shape. 


There you have it... beautiful red lipstick to last all day long... 






TOP TIP: Using the Lip & Cheek Stain underneath the lipstick really is a fab thing to do as it helps to keep some colour on the lips even after the lipstick has worn away later in the day.

Photos and Printing

Wednesday, 8 April 2015

I'm sorry that I've been a little quiet here on the blog recently... Baby Lewis and I have been spending time getting to know each other and Chris and I have been concentrating on the new weekly Vlogs... However now that Lewis and I have a daily schedule you can expect to see plenty of posts here on the Sparkly Blog so watch this space...


Today I wanna share with you some really special pictures. As you know the wonderful Chloe Lodge did a photo-shoot for Chris,
 and I just before I had Lewis, she also did a photo-shoot just after we had Lewis and a follow up shoot just as he turned 1 Month old here's a few images from all the photo-shoots. Thank you Chloe for such a wonderful selection of pictures.

One Month on Nan visited from the UK and we had another photo-shoot with Chloe the difference in Lewis within just a month is incredible... this photo-shoot was just before he could smile and his facial expressions where so funny!

 I love how Chloe used natural daylight to create this magical picture...

If you follow my Instagram you will already have seen that Baby Lewis just turned 3 months old! 
Therefore I thought it was about time that Chris and I sorted out all of our Baby Lewis photos from the last couple of photo-shoots along with photos from my maternity shoot as I hadn't finished printing those off either.
Last week Chris and I spent an evening printing Baby Lewis photos on our new printer from HP...  (See more on our weekly vlog)



We printed all the pictures off using HP Deskjet Ink Advantage 4515,

Chris and I were super impressed with this little bit of kit.... the pictures that we printed we're amazing quality and the printer was pretty quick at getting the job done (this is very helpful when you have a boy who's 3 months old!) . Chris also loves our new printer as he loves gadgets! Find out what Chris has to say.. http://www.thedaddiary.com/.

Watch this space as I'll share with you some photos of the collage boards that I've done once they are finished...

The New Exciting Vlog...

Friday, 6 March 2015

Hi there lovelies,

If you've followed me for a little while now you'll know that Chris & I started a Vlog during my pregnancy. We decided to do this really for two reasons... 

1. So that Baby Lewis could watch it when he was older.

2. As a way of sharing everything with our family worldwide.

(Clare Elise & Chris)
However now we've decided to continue the Vlog and have decided to do a weekly one that'll feature bits from everyday in the life of us... We've decided to do this after having lots of messages from you guys saying that you enjoy watching our crazy goings on and enjoy seeing more of Dubai... so don't miss our first new look vlog which'll be posted on my channel on Sunday... click here now and subscribe...
