Bling Phone Covers

Hey Guys,

Sorry for the lack of posts again, my bad!

Well I have been paid and been spending my money again. I thought I'd tell you more about my iPhone cover, I have previously showed you it when I showed you the contents of my handbag. To remind you here it is again -



I bought this a while ago on ebay for £7! I get so many people saying how much they love it so I thought I'd treat my friend to one for her birthday. She has a Blackberry so I was unable to buy the Helly Kitty one as they didn't have it for her model but I found one just as cute! I ordered it on Monday and it was here on Wednesday! Check it out -


Sorry the image is bad I took it on my iPhone

This cost me about £7 and is such good quality I really recommend them, here is the link to the companies page on Ebay - CellbellWorld

As it's friday here is a little picture to make you smile, I went to have a shower the other night and I found this in there -


His name is Alfie and for some strange reason he loves to roll around in my shower :-)

Plans for the weekend are going to West Midlands Safari Park, a night in Birmingham and then shopping at the Bull Ring so I will up date you on my purchases!

What are your plans?

Cocktails, Diet and Shopping!

Hey!

So the diet has begun, it has been going well until Firebox gave me a £5 voucher and I accidentally bought another Ice Republic Cocktail Mix of Strawberry Daiquiri. I was thinking this could be my treat until I came across the Cocktail Calorie Counter on Handbag.com





Swap: Strawberry Daiquiri 300 calories
Bottoms up: Pimms, 50 calories



As if fresh strawberries weren't enough to sweeten up this rum-based drink, sugar is then added followed by strawberry liquor which really racks up the calories. Instead of this fattening cheesecake in a glass, mix-up a classic Pimms with plenty of cucumber, fruit and mint for a lighter drink that still packs a punch. Just be sure to use diet lemonade to keep the calories to a minimum.

Humm so maybe I shouldn't drink the whole bag this weekend as it does make a good 4-5 glasses hehe! So I'll be having Pimms and diet lemonade with the BBQ this weekend!
 
In other news I couldn't help my self and ended up buying yet another double finger ring!! This one is much smaller and I LOVE it! I haven't taken it off since last weekend. It's much easier to type at work with and just so much more feminine
 


What do you think? Do you guys have a double ring? I have had mixed comments about them, it seems guys don't like them but girls love them! I also accidentally managed to buy a new handbag in the ASOS sale, I must stop spending money!!! What do you think? only £10! -


                                   
What have you guys been buying in the sales?

Plans for the weekend include going to Boots to purchase some new Soap and Glory products and a BBQ Saturday night I think!

What are you up to?

River Island Double Ring

Hey!

I hope you're well! It's FRIDAY wahooo!!!!!
So I've been at work today and decided to wear my double ring which I bought from River Island a couple of weeks ago. I always thought they looked a bit chavy until I saw the beautiful Lauren Conrad. If you haven't seen it here she is wearing it -

So I decided to buy myself one from River Island, it isn't as small as Lauren's but is feminine. One thing I didn't take in to account would be the issue of typing on the keyboard at work... hummm it wasn't easy!! Here is a picture of the ring in question -


I do like the ring but I'm thinking it's still a bit big, if anyone knows where I can get a smaller one that would be fab. I have been looking at personalised ones but not found one as small as Laurens.

Love to know what you think to double rings and if they should stay with the chavs or do look nice?

So the plan for the weekend is out for a meal with my friends from uni tonight, put together IKEA furniture tomorrow and go and see my boyfriends mate in a wrestling match tomorrow night (odd I no! haha)

Have a fab weekend and would love to see your comments!!

Time To Sort Myself Out!

Hey Peeps,

So I have been on holiday and just been a general slob lately and have now decided it is time to get on the diet and fitness bandwagon! I have been thinking the best way to get my self motivated is to get a picture of my self from holiday on the fridge and next to the biscuits and chocolate. So I thought I'd share this picture with everyone to help motivate my self -

I really hate this picture and think I look horrible!!! Being as I have now shown one of the worse pictures I now need to have some motivation. I really like the style of Pixie Lott and Katy Perry, they both look fantastic and I want their legs!!!! So here are some pics to motivate myself -






So these pictures will be added to the fridge as well to help with the motivation! Don't worry I'm not intending to become skinny but I think I need to be healthier and actually do some exercise! I'm thinking of joining a club or something to get my self started, if any of you have joined clubs you enjoy please let me know it might help get me off this sofa!!

Back to the blog :-) I have been paid!!! WAHOO!!! which can only mean one thing - shopping time! I work on a computer all day at work so I went straight online and took advantage of the 25% off at Models Own, the sale at Cath Kidston and treated myself on MyVintageCharms! I will take some pictures over the weekend and get them up for you to see.

Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine, would love to hear how you keep your self happy and healthy to motivate me to stop eating takeaways :-)

Bag Tag!!!

I was tagged back in March by BeautyH2T to show you all the contents of my bag. When I looked in my bag I realised most of the contents were receipts and rubbish, so after I emptied them I found a few things I was missing!!

So here we go - 

Contents
River Island Handbag 
Rimmel Sun Shimmer Instant Tan Make Up
Travalo Perfume Atomiser
Hello Kitty Notebook
Glamour Magazine with Benefit Eye Bright
17 Ultimate Length Mascara
MAC Eyeliner
Benefit Smokin' Eyes
Solar Power IPhone Charger
Paul's Boutique Barbie Purse
IPhone with Hello Kitty Phone Cover

Yes I finally got my hands on a Glamour magazine today wahoo!! Only 2 more to go, if anyone knows where they are in stock please let me know. I always carry my Hello Kitty notebook, it has all my to do lists, phone number sand everything to keep me going really don't know what I'd do without it. My favorite face tan is the Rimmel Sun Shimmer Instant Tan Make Up it is so so so good, I've been using it since college and would recommend it to everyone, go wrong and you can just wash it off.

If I had to pick my favorite piece from the bag it would be my Hello Kitty phone cover, I bought it on EBay for £7 - Bargain! It is a bit damaged now as I have dropped it and chipped the corner but still love the bling!
 

I bought my purse last year when the first Barbie range was released by Paul's Boutique, I think I paid about £35 for it but I love it! It holds all my card, money and notes, what more could I want!



I think that's about it for my bag of goodies :-) I would love to see whats in these peoples bags!


I look forward to seeing them girlie's!!

Take care

Summer Good Food Show

So me and my Mum decided to head over to the Summer Good Food Show in Birmingham yesterday, I've never been before but friends and colleagues have told me how great it is so I thought this would be the year we tried it.
The show was really great, I drove and I would really recommend getting the train or being dropped off by the other half as I was unable to try the alcoholic samples, and trust me there were alot of them. I was beginning to worry I would be carrying my Mum home, toffie vodka, champagne, cider naming just a few on offer to sample as you enter the hall.
I tried so many different chutney's, fudge and even Apple Crisps!!! Nothing added and 1 of your 5 a day, worth a sample if you see them anywhere. So let me show you what I bought -

I paid £7 and have found it online here -
Rubis (chocolate * velvet * ruby) 50cl -£6.99 but you have to buy 6 ekk!

I did have a little sip of this at the show and was suprised how much it tasted of chocolate. It looks like redwine but poured over ice it is a slow drink for a summers night, I'm looking forward to cracking it open :-)

My second purchase is from Ice Republic, this product is the answer to my cocktail problems! I love strawberry daiquiri but out in town they are around £7 each and to make one your self can take time and even more money. I had seen this product online but never purchased as I was worried it wouldn't be as nice as a fresh cocktail. I had a sneeky sample at the show and oh how I was wrong!


I paid £7 and I have found it online here -

I haven't tried the pack yet but the instructions tell you to fill up to one line with water and to another line with white rum, shake and freeze! It says to freeze for 6 hours before serving, as soon as I have tried it I will post some pictures and a better review.

I'd love to know if you have tried these and let me know what you thought to them.

More posts coming this week :-)

Take care

Eclectic Eccentricity

So... as I promised more posts!!

Don't you love it when your window shopping online and you come across a new website with some fantastic products. Well today that happened! I came across Eclectic Eccentricity, beautiful jewellery at a really good price. They are designed by Lucy Averill "Combining a love for unique and varied pieces with a hefty dose of fun, the collections are as different as the name (which combine's two of Lucy's favourite words in the English language)." Below are my favorite items in the collection...






I'm sure you will agree these are beautiful pieces, all of the pieces look like they have a story to be told and I love that. Don't get me wrong I love high street jewellery but it's so nice to come across a new brand with a bit of character. I can't decide if I should buy the bracelet or the Twittering Vintage Necklace. Either way it will have to wait until payday as I have been shopping mad this month.

Let me know what you think to the range and which is your favorite :-)

Sorry!

Hello!

So firstly this is a sorry, I haven't wrote in a while. Slapped wrists on my part, I have an excuse as I was moving house and the Internet was cut off.

Anyway let's get back to business, since getting back from my holiday I have been keeping my tan up to date. This is where I get to tell you about the best product tanning product I have come across. I found it on Lollipop26 blog, she was raving about it so I thought I'd give it ago last summer, since then I haven't used anything else.

Introducing St Moritz -


From what I have been told this product has the same ingredients as St Tropez but is a fraction of the price, I picked my bottle up at local beauty store but you can buy it at Fragrance Direct for £2.99. The product is a mousse so I really recommend using a tanning mitt to ensure even coverage.

After the normal routine of exfoliating and moisturising this product is so easy to apply, what I normally find with self tan is that you can't see where you have applied it. This tans you immediately and then develops the skin during the day, I recommend applying before bed. Leave to dry before getting in to bed then have a shower in the morning, this will take off the immediate colour you see but will have developed in your skin leaving you golden brown.

I haven't had any streaking from this product, I really can't recommend it highly enough, I have bought it for all my friends and for £2.99 you should really give it a try!

That's all for now, I will try and add some pictures of the tan on me later this week.

Take care

Nautical Fashion

We have all noticed how much nautical products are available, a great look if you know what to do. One big tip for the trend is not to over do it, make sure you have one key piece and keep it simple. Here are some of my favorite on the internet and high street at the moment.

Available from River Island £19.99

Available from ASOS £25


Available from M&S in May £25

These tops will look great with a simple pair of skinny jeans and of course a set of killer high heals, at night team with a blazer jacket for a smart casual look. There are lots of nautical accessories to add to the look as well, here are some of my favorites

Available from ASOS £5

Available from River Island £5.99

Available from MeandZena £15.99


This is a easy trend for this summer and really refreshing after wearing all the black and grey in the winter, just looking for these products has made me feel all summery!! There are plenty of items on the high street and online so get looking for them and stock up your wardrobe ready for a sunny day!! Let's hope there are plenty this summer.

Let me know if you find any fab items I would love to see them!

It's FRIDAY!!!!

So I got in the car this morning and I thought I had missed the Mcfly day with Star Girl but to my surprise I hadn't so I stayed in the car park until the song had finished and I got the singing and dancing out of my system! It puts you in a great mood for your last day of the week!


It's all my family members birthdays this week so I have been buying pressies, I have bought my sister in law the Travalo Atomiser Bottle from Amazon. What a fab product, it lets you take around your favorite perfume in a small bottle. All you have to do is take the top off your perfume bottle so you are left with the straw looking part and slot the Travalo on top and pump the perfume into the chamber so you have perfume on the go!

I have now bought one for all my friends and my Mum has bought her self one, they can be taken on aeroplanes and have no glass so don't worry about it smashing in your bag.

Me being an idiot some how added two of them into my basket at amazon and didn't notice until they arrived. I was so impressed with Amazon's return system, it made it so easy 2 clicks and I had my returns number and label to send the item back. I sent these on Monday and the money has been credited today!

Fab product and fab service go check it out!!

N xoxo

Welcome!





Hello!


Welcome along to the my new blog, I have had my shopping addiction for a while now and thought I should share my experiences with people. I will be reviewing products I have bought through to the service I received by the company.


Just a great way for other people not to waste their money and time! I have spent money on such rubbish products in the past and had horrible service from companies so this is a great way for people to join in an share their experiences!


I will try my hardest for voucher codes to help you save money while you try and control your shopping addiction :-)


So keep your eye out as I hope to keep this up dated regularly!
