Do you guys use emojis? I absolutely love them. I can’t express myself without them. I mean, I even have an emoji mug (bought to me as part of a Secret Santa) which I take to work with me. I’ve also got a ‘lovestruck’ 😍 emoji pillow thar takes pride of place on my bed. I should’ve got the crying with laughter one instead to be fair! 😂

This post has nothing to do with ‘Beauty’ itself  – although – one could argue that emojis are beautiful things. Therefore, you know what? I take back my comment. It does. It has a lot to do with Beauty!

As you can see, I love emojis. A lot. While we’re on the subject, I think the best addition made  onto iOS’ 2016 emoji update was — bacon. Obviously it was nice sEwing the male and female worker and student emojis but let’s all cut to the chase… The only emoji anyone really needs when describing what they’re going through in life is: fried pork. 🥓

I’ve actually written sentences and played “Emojinary” with emojis as well. “What’s Emojinary?” I hear you cry… Well, it’s a game like Pictionary, only you use emojis to describe a film, song, word etc. instead of drawing.

For example,

Film: 🦁👑

Song: 💋🙋🏻📲

Word: 🤳🏼

Comment your ideas for what the answers could be below to (not) win a prize. C’mon guys and dolls, don’t forget the January Money …or the lack of it… Blues.

P.S. what is your favourite emoji? Do you even like emojis? Let’s start an emojified conversation!

Ooooh! 🚨  COOL IDEA ALERT 🚨

Comment using your Top 5 Top Emojis (found in your Most Used history). 😜 If you’re brave enough – you could even go as far as creating a sentence out of ’em!

I literally cannot wait to see what you come up with, lovers! ❤

Are any of you beauties on Snapchat? If so, you’d have noticed that the first Snap filter on the conveyor is one promoting the upcoming Kenzo x H&M collaboration!

Cast your mind back to 2015 when H&M collaborated with Balmain, and the year before that when the high street giant collaborated with Vera Wang… Well, this year it’a the turn of Kenzo (another luxury clothing brand).

Hey guys,

Seeing as my Waist Trainer challenge didn’t go too well – I’ve decided to start an altogether new challenge whereby I drink one Superfood Smoothie a day.

I bought a NutriBullet last year and have yet to make the most of it… I mean, I used it last Spring/Summer but I just got bored soon after.

Now,  I’m planning to write a blog and document my Juice Cleanse with you… Let’s start with today’s #NutriBulletin, shall we?!

I bunged Wheatgrass, Kale, Ginger, Kiwi and Apple in my NutriBullet and blended until smooth. Before that, I added ice because I can’t drink it lukewarm – it’ll make me sick!

It tasted horrific, I’m not going to lie, but it’s beyond healthy! This is a detox smoothie that is so beneficial for you.

However, you don’t need to create smoothies with vegetables in… My friend lost a lot of weight by juicing blueberries and ginger every night for a month.

What I love about smoothies is the fact that they’re very filling… You can use them as a meal supplement, one that still packs in all the vital nutrients.

Remember to eat healthily and train dirty alongside this juice cleanse for optimum results!

Love,

Miamii
