Things I am loving...

Hi Lovelies,

I wanted to try and keep up with blogging again as I have finished uni now and finally have some free time!

So this post, as the title would suggest, is all about things that I am loving at the minute (beauty, hair and fashion).

1. Macadamia Oil
After hearing about this on a number of blogs and youtube I was itching to try this. I eventually caved and bought it a few months a go after seeing this on a Buyapower deal for £9 for 125ml. Such a bargain.

2. My New Top
I bought this top from Zara last week when I was in London, and I just love it! It's so simple but it looks great with my jeans and some converse...incase you didnt know, I don't really like to verge away from the whole jeans and t-shirt look... this is me experimenting, haha. This leads nicely onto my next new love...

3. My New Converse
Again, I also bought these in London. Probably way to late to jump on the whole converse bandwagon but hey! I had to buy these simply becasue my feet were killing me after spending three days shopping.
4. The Naked Palette
I only ever seem to pull it out on a night, however recently when I am not being my lazy self I have found myself reaching for this pallet for a subtle daytime look! wild I know!

So I guess this is a pretty boring list but these are this things that are floating my boat at the minute :), just though I would share.

Hope your all ok

Hi There :)

Hi Lovelies!!

Hope you are all doing well :D.

Sorry about the lack of posts over the past few months. I have had a crazy busy couple of months. Let me tell you I was not expecting my final year at uni to completely taken over my life!!! only 3 months to go and I will be graduating, ahhh!

So other than being a complete geek these past few months I have also managed to squeeze in a trip to Shanghai as a uni trip as well as setting up a little homeware business and a good couple of nights out with my lovely Nicola! Oh yeah and there was christmas.  I thought I'd just do a quick photo diary of things over the past couple of months...

Post break up shop

Hi Lovelies,

I have had a horrendous couple of weeks resulting in my 5 and a half year relationship coming to an end :(. So to take my mind off things I did what all girls do, retail therapy! Shopping is all I ever seem to do but this time I had a reason. And I didn't go too crazy either, well done me.  So yesterday me and my mum had a little nosey in town and I thought I would show you what I picked up.

It appears that I went a little cosy crazy! But I love my new bits. The cardigan is my absolute favourite thing in my wardrobe at the minute. Its nice and bright unlike a lot of the things in my wardrobe at the minute. I feel it will brighten up my mood in my sad phase. Its from H&M (my favourite shop ever!!) and it was £29.99, not bad. 

The Scarf is so long and thick and warm. Beautiful! Also from H&M for £19.99. Then finally my little boots. I seriously have a boot obsession, I am more than aware of this, but I don't own any like this. They are lined with wool (fake of course) and are soooo comfy! These were from New Look and cost £29.99.

Babyliss Big Hair - My new best friend

Hi Lovelies,

I have a review for you today, for a new hair tool that is in my life. As you can see from the title this is definitely a positive review, I love this thing!

I have wanted the Babyliss Big Hair for some time now after seeing a few reviews and you tube videos about this, however I didn't really want to spend £45 on a tool that I haven't actually tried first. So a couple of weeks ago I was merrily shopping in Asda, as you do, and I saw this on offer for £35. Well I had to have it, thats a £10 saving - You know me and a bargain, i'm powerless.

Ramble over...

Below is a picture of my hair as it normally looks after blasting with the hair drier. Clearly I cannot leave the house like this, so I will use my GHD after this stage to tame my crazy mop.
 After GHD's - Much less scary

Now as you can see from the above photos, my hair is in terrible condition after being a bleach blonde for 5 years prior to taking the plunge and dying in brown. So using straighteners on it every time I wash my hair is not ideal.

This is a photo of my hair after blow drying with the Big Hair - ahhh so big and bouncy. I love the feeling of coming out of a hairdressers after having a blow dry, this tool creates exactly the same effect. Basically this is saving me money!
Apologies for the lack of makeup! 

I'd love to know if any of you have tried this and what you think of it! Also Asda are still selling the Babyliss Big Hair for £35 here if your interested in buying!

So I picked up some Nail Polish...

Hi Lovelies,

So I was in Boots today and I picked up some nail polishes from Barry M. Well it is 3 for 2 at the minute, it would be rude not too!

Here are the little beauties...
** 304 - Mint Green **
** 305 - Pink Flamingo **
** 317 - Blue Moon **

Can you believe that only a couple of months ago I never painted my nails and I only owned one red nail polish - before the blog addiction began. Now I am the proud owner of 13 polishes!! Not exactly hundreds but good going for a couple of months.

I chose to go for the Mint Green for today, its my new fav!

How many polishes do you own and what is your favorite?

Tuesday Summary...

Hi Lovelies,

I have decided that I am going to do a summary post each week, I really enjoy reading these kind of posts on blogs because I like that you can get to know a bit more about the blogger. So I thought why not do one on mine!

I am going to do some reviews this week as I have a couple of things I am dying to talk about!

The past few weeks have been quite a hectic. I've been shopping, eating, spending time with family and friends, and getting myself ready for Uni next week, Oh and I also got a new semi-permanent tattoo!

Here are some pictures to sum up my week...

Thanks for reading

Dedicated to my new boots

Hi lovelies,

Hope your having a great weekend in spite of the dreadful weather.

Today I just wanted to share with you my new love that I purchased this week. My new boots.

Ta Dahh......
So after seeing these in my local H&M I loved them instantly. However, seen as I am trying to not spend any money, I begrudgingly walked away. I then saw these whilst out with my mum in another H&M (I swear I wasn't specifically searching for them) and they were there, almost with an angel like glow surrounding them. Again I walked away after the hints to my mum didn't work. So this week I went to the Trafford Centre, this being the third H&M store I had been to, I decided that if they had them in my size, it was meant to be. So here they are! yay. I haven't even told you the best bit, they were £29.99! Bargain.

They will be great with all Jeans, skirts and tights, dresses, just everything really.

Obviously I had to wear these the next day, so I thought I would show you a quick look at what I wore it with. I apologise for the awful pictures - note to self: must buy tripod and proper camera!
 I'd just like to say that I am aware that I have a problem with shopping, and I am also aware that I seem to have an addiction to boots lately but I just can't say no.

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for reading.
