Hello Again | Life Update

Hello everyone! I know it has been a long time since I last posted but lots is happening at this end! I feel like I’m busy doing everything and nothing all at the same time – a lot of the time life is very much ground hog day, but I always seem to find myself leading quite a hectic life.

I have found myself a summer job at a hotel, which I must admit has been taking up quite a bit of my time recently. But that’s fine, I get on great with my boss and the other people that work there so so it takes the pain of ‘going to work’ away. I’ve also been put on my mum’s care insurance for the past two weeks leading up to my test as I really needed to pass it this time. I absolutely HATE taking my driving test, but I guess I’ve become pretty well at it having to take it FIVE TIMES.

But luckily I passed this time, they do say that 5th time’s the charm, right?

I put it all down to my outfit on the day… I was wearing my new Wonder Woman top from H&M, which makes me feel so empowered as if I can conqueror anything! (Oh and maybe the ‘Rescue Remedy’I was taking beforehand too!) I spoke to the examiner about so much random stuff I bet he thought I was a right weirdo aha. One topic of conversation was how disheveled a dead seagull on the road looked. But whatever I said must have paid off as he passed me with one minor!!

Here’s a picture of me after the test… I apologize now for how I look. There were many sleepless nights before this day and I got so hot and sweaty going around the test route, it’s not one of my best looks. But anyway, here I am posing as Wonder Woman! The photo was taken by my Driving Instructor, Alison, who has seen me through my ups and downs over the past two years. I say driving instructor, but she’s more of a friend now than a teacher! So happy to have passed 🙂 🙂 🙂

I have lots of reviews coming your way. I decided to have a shopping spree in town last week and I really can’t wait to show you what I bought!

Until next time xx

Blog Update | Mondays and Fridays

SONY DSC

Things have been a little bit crazy lately. I have had a load of deadlines to meet, a few shopping trips here and there, a quick visit home and a winter cold to shake. I must admit, I have let my blog slip a little bit. But hopefully, after this weekend and after writing this essay, I will be back on my feet again and with a bit of luck, I’ll find some spare time to get back doing what I love, writing some posts and reviewing some products.

I thought I would get some structure to my blog, as at the moment I’m posting here there and everywhere but there is no kind of order. So to become organised from next week onwards (do forgive me from time to time) my plan is to post every Monday and every Friday which will give you some pleasurable reading to begin and end your week with.

The theme of my blog will always be beauty and fashion but do expect to see some lifestyle posts in here too, especially around Christmas and New Year! I think I made the right decision when I chose to move from Blogger to WordPress and thank you for staying with me during this transition. If you’re a new follower then hello! I hope you enjoy reading my posts and are finding them helpful.

If there’s a certain post you’d like to see or a certain topic you’d like me to write about, don’t hesitate to contact me or upload a comment below.

I look forward to these new arrangements and getting back blogging on a regular basis!

Until Monday x

Past few days | Update

I apologise for my disappearance over the past few days, it has been ultra-busy at this end. First things first it was my A-Level results day. Luckily I already had an unconditional offer at my university meaning the stress of getting certain grades was taken away; but I was still nervous to find out what I had got. When I opened my envelope it turned out I had straight Bs which I was extremely happy with. All of my friends had gotten the grades they needed to get into their uni too sooo all in all it was a good day. To celebrate, me and my friend Millie decided to bake some cookies and a cake!
I’d bought her a Popin Cookin set for Christmas resulting in us making what seemed like the World’s smallest cake. Popin Cookin is basically a Japanese brand. You can create a lot of mini things to eat, like mini ice creams, mini sweets, but because Millie is so into baking I chose the mini cake. One minute the cake was around five sachets of powder (which looked incredibly sugary) but by adding a bit of heat and water, the next minute it was a cake! Fascinating stuff really…
 We turned it into a little demon (with bright pink hair!) I have to admit he looked pretty good – it’s a shame I can’t say the same for the taste! We didn’t end up eating more than a crumb but it was fun to make.

I met up with my friend Tom on results day too. He’d recently been to the Punk festival Rebellion and with returning presented me with some of my very own ‘Punk Rock’. Yep, this was a stick of Blackpool rock that the punk band Goldblade had been selling with their logo on the front. It seriously was the best thing ever! :’)
Punk Rock. There is nothing more to say
Then I guess for the other few days I have been sorting out a lot of university stuff, registering, confirming and going out shopping for all the kitcheny things and bedding… It has been busy! Thankfully though, there are only a few more bits and bobs that need picking up and I think then it’ll just be a case of moving into my new house.
All that’s left is to add a bit of colour. Pink? Or Blue?
So that was me, and even with all of this going on, I’ve managed to draw this pretty picture! I don’t know who it is, at first I was trying to turn myself into an old school Disney character… I think it’s pretty cute.

Let me know what you make of it! I will be back up and blogging now so stay tuned.
