I’m back to blogging!

Hello again! It’s been so long since I wrote a blog post, my last one seems so long ago! I took a break because I started my final year at university and I wanted to put in more effort than the previous two years and plus I was starting my dissertation and that takes up a lot of time, but I am back to blogging. I missed it a lot and missed the community too so I thought I’d slightly update my blog and then post my first new post of 2015 and since I broke from blogging last year.

Well I’m glad I am back and I hope that you will stick around to read the upcoming posts! 🙂

5 things I want to buy…

So I haven’t blogged in a little while and that’s because I’ve not been feeling so well lately but luckily I went to the doctors and I should be feeling much better soon! I have a ton of blog posts to write and I am trying to squish them all out so you all don’t get to bored of me (I hope you already haven’t haha) If you’ve been tagging along on my blog you’ll know I attempted the 30 day photo challenge, sadly I flopped that because I only managed to get to day 19! (Sorry!) However I’m on the look out for other lists/challenges and such to try so if you have any suggestions pass them my way! 🙂

Anyway so I thought I would do a little post about 5 things I want to buy when I have enough money because I am always adding stuff to my mental list in my head! So lets begin…

  1. Running shoes – This is the constant excuse I use for not doing exercise, the lack of proper footwear to do such strenuous activities! I do actually want to get a pair though, running in converse isn’t fun nor comfortable.

  2. BooTea Tea – A ‘teatox’, I’m not usually one for these sort of products as I rarely believe in them however after a good duration reading their website and also looking at other girls results on twitter, I’m going to give it a go just purely because I am trying to be more healthier from this point onward. (Google them if you’ve never heard of them, it’s worth it!)

  3. Soap & Glory™ Thick & Fast Flash Extensions Mascara High Definition Collagen Coat – I was looking for a long time for a new mascara, I like to keep my make up natural but I like my eyes to stand out and I don’t really use liquid eyeliner that much so I like to choose a mascara that gives me lots of definition and ‘oomph’ shall we say.

  4. Ritual Fortune Scrub – I got my first taste of the Ritual products from a magazine a while back (Perhaps GLAMOUR? Can’t remember!) and I tried the Ritual Fortune Scrub, now when I got my sample with the magazine I was surprised it was a full blown big bottle not the tiny little itty bitty samples you usually get so I was excited and hopeful that I liked this product because I had a ton of it in this sample. IT SMELLS LIKE PARADISE! literally, I feel like I’m on holiday in an exotic paradise when I use this! I usually don’t rate shower gels or scrubs because I’m never that impressed but this one is different! If you’ve tried it you’ll agree where I’m coming from and if you haven’t then you can buy it online quite cheap I believe 🙂

  5. Eyebrow threading – Okay so I have something to admit, I shaved off one eyebrow BY ACCIDENT! 😦 You’d think I’d know better, but was totally accidental (I bet you’re all laughing now) So I lost my tweezers and as a student I couldn’t afford to have my eyebrows threaded/waxed again for a while so I quickly used a razor to try and get rid of the bottom hairs and the razor caught the rest of my eyebrow in the process! 😦 (If you weren’t laughing earlier bet you are now) So for a while I’ve been using an eyebrow pencil and you can’t see that it was shaved off viciously but now they’re kinda grown back (HOORAY!!!) so soon I shall pay for my eyebrows to be threaded 🙂

That’s my 5 things I need to buy when I have the money, I hope you enjoyed it! Comment/like/subscribe/Tweet if you like lovelies! 🙂

A MASSIVE THANK YOU – 10,000 BLOG HITS

Image

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all my followers! My blog as of today has hit the enormous amount of 10,000 hits! Hooray!

When I first started my blog I never imagined anyone would be interested in what I had to say or wanted to talk about but I have seen how wrong I am, the blogging community on WordPress, Blogger, Twitter, Facebook, Bloglovin and Better Blogging Network have all been such lovely people and I’ve made some super blogging friends as well! 🙂

My blog’s birthday is near which will be another wonderful milestone! On March 29th my blog will be 1 year old and I am looking forward to that a lot!

So because I reached 10,000 hits on my blog and gained so many followers as well as having my blog’s birthday soon I will be doing a giveaway on April 29th to celebrate everything! 🙂

Thank you once again!

Soap & Glory Super Sit Tight Intense XS Body Firming Serum Review

Before I went on holiday I thought I would give the Soap & Glory Super Sit Tight Intense XS Special Super Strength Body Firming Serum because I had read a lot of reviews in magazines and online about how excellent it was and I thought I would give it a shot!

I do like Soap & Glory products although I do not buy them a lot I have tried quite a few things in their range and after reading that this body firming serum works I thought it was a good option for a quick go to before I went abroad! Well firstly the price is a little pricey (roughly £16.50 which was hard to part with!) in my opinion but I would say it was worth it overall, the bottle has roller balls on the top so you can roll it over your body and the serum glides on perfectly smooth & wonderful (Sometimes it’s a bit cold!) but the real crazy amazing thing is this serum HEATS UP! after you’ve put it on which is both tingly and strange haha!

Overall I believe the serum did make a difference in my opinion to my body,legs,thighs and butt – but everybody is different so I’d recommend giving it a go anyway! 🙂

Thanks for reading guys! Let me know if you’ve tried it/going to try it by commenting or tweeting me 🙂

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 3 TECHNOLOGY

Hey everyone!

I just want to firstly say a massive thank you to the recent new followers, the followers who have been there from the beginning and the ones who joined along the way! Your support for my growing blog has been immense and I am so grateful there are people who appreciate what I write & enjoy looking at my blog 🙂

I have received many comments over the past few days and they have all been so lovely! So thank you and please keep it up because I love to hear what you all think and if you’re enjoying it 🙂

Anyway moving on! Yesterday was day 3 of the photo challenge, I didn’t get to upload this yesterday because for some reason my WordPress wouldn’t load! But success because today it did and I am here writing this post! 🙂 So choosing something that represents technology was tough because I didn’t want to go for the cliche things but after much deliberation I decided that the best photo is my iPhone background.

My iPhone is something I use everyday, I think to me it represents that technology has come so far considering the past that now everyone can have a piece of a growing industry themselves, not only this but I think it represents the amount of people that are technologically advanced nowadays and the growth in consumerism.

Well hope you enjoyed my 3rd photo, day 4 will be up tonight and it’s a pet/animal!

30 Day Photo Challenge- DAY 1 NATURE

Hey everyone! Sorry I didn’t get a chance to upload my first picture of my photo challenge yesterday it’s because it was my nieces birthday! So I spent yesterday on the train and celebrating with my whole family 🙂

But this is my day 1 photo for nature and I took it Friday evening, I thought it would make a good nature shot for my challenge because the tree looks so gigantic and quite symbolic in the growing darkness of the night and also it shows that even if you live in a big city you can still find nature if you look around enough so I thought it was a nice photo.

My day 2 photo for today is FOOD and will be uploaded tonight! 🙂

Changes, changes, changes!

So I haven’t really wrote a blog post in quite a while and that’s down to a lot of factors like university and also my inability to work out where I want my blog to go from here (Sigh). Many of you may know that I started blogging back around April last year and it is something I quite enjoy doing, I have gained some lovely followers and on top of that I find blogging to be quite fun! But this year I would like my blog to go in a different direction, before my blog was about fashion, beauty and such but now I would really like to move to an all round blog where I do not have to just post one specific genre of posts and I get to post about everything and anything from places I may travel, food I cook or try, life goals and inspirations, general chit chat and everything else you can think of because I think it will be quite a good boost for my blog and myself to be able to feel free to write about anything I like and that’s what blogging is about in the end 🙂

So this post is just to let you all know, I wont strictly be a fashion/beauty blog anymore although I will still do some fashion and beauty inspired posts among many others that are to come 🙂

I hope you all stick around to see this year with me!

Fashion Union Melodie Black 10 Pu Biker Jacket with Faux Fur Review*

Happy New Year Everyone!

I haven’t blogged in a while and that is because it has been exam period and also Christmas! I thought today would be an ideal day to start my post because it is now 2014. So a while ago I got in touch with Fashion Union, a really lovely and unique online fashion store that has a wide range of clothes and accessories at really good prices! They were lovely enough to send me a wonderful jacket to review for all my lovely followers, being winter I absolutely loved the jacket and thought it was an ideal sample of clothing to review so I was very happy! I got sent the Melodie Black 10 Pu Biker Jacket with Faux Fur* which you can find on their website or by clicking the banner at the side of my blog! When the package arrived it was packed really well, I opened it with haste and excitement and I got exactly what I was expecting but more! It was a really lovely jacket, I usually am rather fussy when it comes to coats and jackets because size and material is a big issue because in winter you want a coat that looks great but is big enough so you can wear jumpers and cardigans underneath without looking awful, and this jacket was great because it is big enough that I can wear those warm jumpers underneath and still looks amazing anyway.

Another advantage is this jacket can go with practically anything I wear, it is durable in the rain and is really warm – overall a big thumbs up! Fashion Unions customer service was excellent and even emailed to let me know if there would be any delays and such, they were one of the friendliest companies and I will be shopping there again! 🙂

Big thank you to Fashion Union, also I hope you all had a wonderful New Years!
