I mentioned before about a condition that is not well known to people. People may not even know that they have it either. 

Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland does not make enough hormones. The thyroid gland is located in front of the neck just below the voice box known as the larynx. The thyroid gland releases hormones to control metabolism.

In most cases the symptoms of hypothyroidism before it is treated with the correct medication are;
depression, constipation, being more sensitive to the cold, fatigue, heavier or no menstrual period, and the main symptom unintentional weight gain.

I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and that was the first symptom i had noticed. Within the space of 3months i had the same diet and done the same activities but jumped from a UK size 10/12 to a UK 16. That is when i realised i had to see a doctor. And from a short examination i was diagnosed with potentially having hypothyroidism I was sent off for a throat scan which showed that i had the condition. 

The only way to treat hypothyroidism is to have a wholemeal diet and take your prescribed medication, which for me is TS4 levothyroxine. I was shocked knowing i would have to take these for the rest of my life, so if you think you might have this unknown condition please see you GP/ doctor asap.

Simple clear skin oil balancing moisturiser (Review)

As you guys know or I think you know I suffer with oily skin and my t-zone gets especially oily when I have make-up on. So before I was using e45 and that was helping but not as much as I needed it too. Recently when I went to Superdrug I saw this product and thought I would give it a try.

Now I have been using it for two weeks and I definatley recommend it. The oil balancing moisturiser was really hydrating and leaves my face so soft and smooth. The moisturiser is light and has this sought of fluffy texture to it and doesn't feel heavy on your face. The cream isn't too thick either so its the perfect consistency. I highly recommend this product to anyone with oily or combination skin.

You can buy this product from stores such as Superdrug and boots ranging between £3-4.

Lifestyle...Considering Having a Boob Job?

Hey guys. This is something I have considered before many of times because in my eyes they are tiny but I always think about the complications ahead of time which puts me off not to mention the amount it cost to have this type of surgery done.

Some women/girls don't take into consideration that this decision you make will stick with you and there's not going back really once you've had them done, unless you want more surgery to reduce them. I urge us girlie's to understand that research is really important when making such a big decision as this. You need to find a good practice someone who knows what they are doing and talking about with good credit history. Such as the leading cosmetic surgery clinic ''The Harley Medical Group''.

Below I have left a YouTube clip of someone's boob job journey from day one to the end. So watch this and listen to the points that she makes, it is very insightful.

Here is the link to her second one. There a seven videos in total :

Mac Matchmaster Foundation (review)

I absolutely love this foundation. Its so easy to apply as it has a pump. This particular foundation isn't full coverage, but I would say its something like a medium coverage... So if you want that full coverage look you will have to work it up until you find the right coverage you are looking for. 

My shade is a 7.5 which is about NC50/NC55. I have made a list to link other mac foundations with the shades with the matchmaster foundation...

1.0 = NC15
1.5 = NW15
2.0 = NC20, NC25, NW20
3.0 = NC30
4.0 = NC35, NC37, NW30
5.0 = NC40, NC41, NC42
6.0 = NW33, NW35, NC44
7.0 = NW40, NW43, NC45
7.5 = NC50, NC55
8.0 = NW44, NW45
8.5 = NW46, NW47
9.0 = NW48
9.5 = NW50, NW55
10.0 = NW58, NW60

I hope this list helps you find the particular shade that you are, because I found it difficult at first to know what shade i was. So i had to look at Youtube videos in order to find my shade. 

This foundation goes really well with the l'oreal studio secrets primer as i have previously mentioned in a earlier blog post. Also the mac translucent powder is a good product to have a matte finished look.

First Day Blogging

Feeling pretty overwhelmed, and psykhed at the same time. Shug.ah.licious is a mixture of opinions on fashion, lifestyle and beauty. So if your interested in that this is the place to be. Im passionate about fashion and think that to be fashionable you dont need to have lots of money and go to lots of shops. Fashion is about expressing how you feel without words just by what your wearing.

I like to look around in all places to find inspiration in fashion and find what pieces can fit together. Many of places have potential, that charity shop you walk past everyday to work or that random empty boutique could have a hidden gem lying amongst the rails. Search and you shall find.

If you can do anything this month you should find a hidden treasure.
