A Lobster In A Thunder Storm..

I was going to start this post off by saying how gorgeous & beautiful the weather has been these past few days.. but it is now pouring, yes POURING with rain. I can hear some thunder coming as well.. I'm not a massive fan of it, I prefer to be snuggled up in my house when it all happens!

It was my best friend's birthday yesterday but we basically celebrated all weekend. It was her 22nd but she didn't really celebrate her 21st, so we made this one extra special. She hired a barn on Saturday & we spent all of yesterday chilling at the beach & came home to a nice glass of champagne before speeding out again to the pub for a quiz & cocktails. I got sooo sun burnt at the beach, I actually look ridiculous. I stood naked in the mirror & I look like I'm wearing a white bikini because of the tan lines! Urgh, not good.

Anyway, here are some pictures of my outfit I wore Sunday:
Top, sunglasses & shorts - all Primark!

I'm off to Notting Hill tomorrow with my boyfriend (mainly for a nice day out together & to explore!) I only live about an hour by train away from London, but rarely find the time to go up so I hope it's nice weather again tomorrow for our adventure. : )

Thankyou to all my new followers! So excited about checking out all your blogs. Hope you're all having a gorgeous day. : D

Mrs Whippy

Hey girls! How are you all?

I just wanted to show you this gorgeous bath bomb I got last week from Lush. It's called Mrs Whippy.

I was drawn to it because of the gorgeous colour & shape of the bomb, I love how it resembles the top of an ice cream. : )

This is what happened when I dropped it in the bath. It started to fizz & a lot of white foam came out of it. While it was fizzing around, it actually flipped over. You can see in the above right picture the bottom is a very gorgeous shade of pink that fizzed madly as soon as it got in the water.

It then split into two sections, the bottom was totally pink & the top layer was white. The pink was alot bubblier & continued to fizz around the bath while the white kind of stayed & bubbled on the spot.

This was the bath when the bomb had nearly completely dissolved. It turned the water a gorgeous pink / white colour. I actually love this bomb, it's the first time I've tried it but it left my skin feeling really soft & smooth.

Have you tried any Lush bombs that you'd recommend? : )

Congratulations to Ashley from under those neon lights!

You've won this gorgeous bird ring & flower necklace. I'll post it out to you soon hun. : )

On to other things, I just want to apologise for my lack of blogging & it's even worse to say I don't really have an excuse for my lack of updates.. I know alot of bloggers have busier lives than me & still find the time to blog (some of them every day) so I will really try to keep going, because I do love being apart of the blogger community & reading all your gorgeous blogs & comments. : D

So yeahhh, I'm off out swimming now - I'll hopefully be able to catch up with all your blogs tomorrow. : ) Hope you all have an awesome day & congrats again to Ashley!

Let's Fly Away, On These Golden Wings

Hey girls! I just want to show you this gorgeous ring I bought from Mozzypop the other day. Her shop and blog are both beautiful, so pop by and have a look. : )

The ring came in this beautiful pink bag, with a little note too.

 So gorgeous. I really love owls so I was super excited when I found this in her shop!

Apart from work & seeing Pete & Leia I haven't really done much this past week, but I've been really busy at the same time! My boyfriend is home from uni permanently on Friday! I'm so excited. He got his results from his first year today (& I don't really understand the actual marks, I just know it's very good!) He got all 1st's & one 2:1. So yeah, I'm a very proud girlfriend at the moment. : D

Right, I'm off to work, make sure you make the most of the sunshine girls. Oh & there is still time to enter my giveaway, it's open to all my followers, so check it out if you haven't already. : D

Benefit Lip And Cheek Tint And Complexion Enhancer

Hello girls. So today I made my first video! : ) If for some reason you don't get sound, click here, it should work.

What do you think? I thought I'd include some swatches as you can't really see the colours very well in the video and for those of you that don't want to watch it, here are the basic points I was rambling on about. : D

This month Glamour magazine are giving away these three products: Bene and Posie Tint. These are both lip and cheek stains and High Beam which is a complexion enhancer.


Posie Tint
Bene Tint
High Beam (not blended)
High Beam (blended)
I mentioned in my video about the High Beam appearing quite glittery on the skin. I like the effect it creates but I'd personally save it for evening looks.

Together, all the products add up to £28, so getting all three for £6 is a total bargain. I've only tried the Bene Tint so far, I find it's gorgeous on my lips & creates a beautiful sutle glow on my cheeks.

Have any of you picked up Glamour this month yet? And what do you think of the Benefits products?

Ring Ring.. Hello?

Evening girls. : )

Thought I'd show you my gorgeous new rings I got from H and M.

They were £3.99 for the two. : )

Also, my gorgeous new finds from a charity shop I got today:

Ring - 99p

I thought this ring would look gorgeous mixed with other strong colours. (Keeping with the idea of colour blocking)

Teapot - £4
Clock - £5

My Auntie collects teapots, so I bought this for her birthday. The clock was just so cute and unique I couldn't resist buying her that as well.

Oh and I'm thinking of doing a video - not sure what of yet, does anyone have any suggestions of what they'd like me to talk about? I'm thinking of doing a questions and answers kind of thing if I don't get any ideas in the next few days. But yes, any suggestions are welcome. : D

Hello girls, how are you all?

My order finally arrived from H and M yesterday, so I got a new playsuit (I'll show you in an outfit post soon) 2 rings and a purple eyeshadow set. All for £12.12! (That includes delivery!) Yay.

So I haven't really got much to post about today. Just been working over the past few days and enjoying the Domino's offer - buy one get one free all week!

I also saw The Hangover 2 last week - so funny but exactly the same as the first one. Still good though. And my boyfriend came back from uni for the day on Friday for a visit, was so nice to see him and we spent the day sitting in the sunshine in the park, just having a huge catch up. I burnt my legs - they were bright red and are only just turning brown! Haha. We saw X men Friday night as well and I haven't seen any of the others except Wolverine but I loved it! Was soooo good. : )


Lorna, Emily and Me
Love this picture, it was taken at my friend's birthday meal a few weeks ago. My dress is from a shop that doesn't have a name (how silly is that!?) and my ring is from New Look. My fringe looks awful here, really need a haircut, hopefully I'll get round to it sometime this week. : )

Oh oh oh and there is still time to enter my giveaway!

Stripes, Floral & Lace - Pattern Overload

Afternoon girls. : )

How are you all? The sun has finally come back to England, yay! So.. this means a nice summer outfit for the day.

I had to chop my face out of these because it was just too bleugh! 

Cardigan - Primark
Floral shorts - Primark
Top - Charity shop

These are my favourite shorts at the moment, I love floral patterns & these are just gorgeous. I think they cost £10 when I bought them a few months back from Primark.

I've also just heard that Jessie J is doing a tour in November, I'm SO excited. Just downloaded her album & it's on repeat so I'm definitely getting tickets when they go on sale next week.

So yeahhhh, seeing Hangover 2 tomorrow, I don't know if it's going to be similar to the first one, but I don't really mind if it is, the first one was amazing anyway. Anyone seen / recommend it?
