Boxing Day Sales

26th December 2013


I hope everyone had a good Christmas! :)
I thought I would be brave and attempt going sales shopping on Boxing Day in Kingston. It wasn't actually too bad this year! Last year it was a lot worse :) I don't know whether its because everyone had been and gone or I was in the mood for spending moneyyy :) So here are some of the pretty things I bought :)


 I'd been meaning to go to Superdrug for a while to get some cream and hair stuff but I thought I would wait untill the sales :) I fiiinally bought the Garnier Body Repair Cream. Whenever it is on offer it's always sold out but I managed to grab one for 1/2 price :) VO5 also had an offer of 2 for £5 so I bought some heat protect serum and some blow dry volumising spray :) I also bought some MUA lipgloss and some nail varnishes :)


Next Up I went to Primark :) It was probably the least busiest I'd ever seen Primark XD suprisingly :) I bought a cosy glittery jumper for £5 a paisley denim skater skirt for only £3! Plus some earrings for a pound and some midi rings :)


In New Look I found this black crochet top for £7 and these prettyy heels for £12 :) I wish I was just a bit taller but I guess that's why there are heels  :)


Finally, I also bought a floaty top from Topshop a little bracelet from Accessorize and a 'Shoot for the Stars' bath bomb from LUSH :)


I've read soo many posts about LUSH and they've left me wanting to try some stuff so badly! So when I walked past the shop I had to go in! :) All of their christmassy products were half price so I grabbed myself a bath bomb! I cant wait to try it XD There were so many to choose from I didn't know which one to pick! :)

All in all it was quite a successful shopping trip and I bought quite a few things! :) happy happy happy :)

Have you bought anything nice in the sales? :)

Biosoc Winter Ball

11th December 2013


The Bio department at Uni were throwing a Masquerade Ball during the last week of this semester. Originally I wasn't going to go as a few of my friends were going on a social but I texted one of my best friends at uni on the day asking whether she wanted to go as all my work had been handed in. We then decided to go very last minute :) Any excuse to dress up! :) I decided to wear my black velvet dress.

The Ball was at Wild Lime and it was a really nice evening :) Catherine got ready at mine and we headed off together to the Ball :) We were able to pay on the door and received a complementary glass of champagne :) It felt so classy with everyone in suits, dresses and masks, sipping away at wine :) We both had a really nice night and we got chatting to some people from our course :) So glad we decided to go last minute :)
Have you had any end of term parties or socials? :)

Christmas Meal

9th December 2013


During our last week of the semester the girls and I decided to go for a Christmas meal to celebrate the end of term :) I'd finished all my assignments due for the end of the week the weekend before so I was excited to go out and not be constantly working. We all got dressed up and decided to go to Wild Lime in the high street. The food was okay but the service wasn't that great as we were in the corner and they'd forgotten about us. We all had a nice girly chat and catch up nonetheless :) It was really nice to have a nice meal and wine and get dressed up :) Definitely need to do more of these nights next year :)

#BritishBloggerSelection Skincare


So this weeks #BritishBloggerSelection is about skincare :) I have tried pretty much everything to do with my skin so above are some of my favourites :) I think that personally the red Garnier Body Repair is my favourite one :) I'm currently using the Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula but I cant decide whether I like it or not, maybe its something I'd buy if it was on offer. In the summer I like using Holland and Barretts Coconut Oil as it locks in moisture and brings out your tan with the shinyness, but don't put it on your face XD I don't like it when cream's too thick so it doesn't spread, but then I also don't like if its too thin and just soaks in straightaway without leaving you feeling moisturised :)
What's your favourite skincare product? :)

Fur Fur Fur


I've always wanted a fur coat so when mum spotted this one from Next I decided to get it :) It is soooo warm! I feel like a snuggley bear! Perfect for winter and this cold weather! :) At first I wasn't sure about it but it's so soft and I like it being oversized as it makes it warmer :)
What do you think? Will you be wearing faux fur this winter? :)

Caaake!

I have such a sweet tooth and I love making cakes and cookies and everything really :)
Mum knows this super easy recipe so I thought I would give it a go on the weekend! Here's the recipe and you must try it because it's so quick and easy and super yummy! :)

Ingredients:
200g Greek Style Yoghurt
150g Strawberries and Blueberries
4tbs Sugar
Lady Fingers
Birds Dream Topping
150ml Milk

Method:
  1. Chop up the fruit.
  2. Mix together the yoghurt and sugar and then add in the fruit.
  3. Put a small layer of the mixture on the bottom of your dish.
  4. Make a layer of lady fingers.
  5. Add another layer of fruit and yoghurt mix.
  6. Make a second layer of lady fingers.
  7. Add the rest of the fruit and yoghurt mixture.
  8. Follow the instructions on the Dream topping and make it, then smooth it over the cake.
  9. Put it in the fridge to chill and it's done!
Chop up the fruit :)
Mix it all together :)
Layer it up and fiiiniished :)
So quick and easy and it's perfect for summer as it's light and healthy because it has fruit in it :) Or you can make it whenever as you don't need an oven and it's simple to make. Just multiply the yoghurt, sugar and fruit if you want to make a bigger cake :) I multiplied mine by 2 and mum usually makes 3 times the ingredients :)

Enjoy! :)

Cute Little Heart Box

Heart Box Template Pinterest Valentine's Day Anniversary
So Cute!
So I was procrastinating earlier as you do.. when I came across the template to a cute little box and I thought I had to try it! :) The website I originally found the photo on no longer exists so below I took apart my box and made the template for you XD
It was so simple to make! So here's a super easy and quick DIY :)

Heart Box Template Pinterest Valentine's Day Anniversary
This is the template that I used



Heart Box Template Pinterest Valentine's Day Anniversary
Heart Box Template Pinterest Valentine's Day Anniversary
Finished! :)
  1.  Print or draw the template onto the desired paper. I chose green :)
  2. Cut along all the edges of the template
  3. Fold along all of the lines. I used a ruler to make neater edges and I find this easier.
  4. Glue all the tabs together and your box is complete!
Super quick and easy! :) To make it more sturdy use card instead of paper :)
Try it out and make sure you send me a link so I can see :)

Retail Therapy





This last week of Uni has been hectic! I've had so much work to do especially as I had 3 practicals in a week, meaning 3 write ups! :( Last year I only used to have one so I am definitely feeling the workload this year :( But I'm getting there slowly :)

Last weekend my whole family came down to see me, bless such cuties they're constantly ringing and skyping me saying how much they miss me :') They decided to all come down together as my brother left to go to Thailand just a few days after so that was the last time I will see him for probably about a year if it works out how hes planned it to :)

The other day I decided to take an afternoon out from my super boring write ups and went shopping with my housemate Hannah :) It's so annoying when you go out planning to spend money and can't find anything. I didn't do too badly I bought a baby pink jumper that I've wanted for a while now :) It's so soft and snuggly! I also bought 2 purple crops tops, some make up and some hair grips which I will probably lose within the next week XD
