Update: Out and About

Image
          Haven't I done well at blogging lots this week! Today I was meant to be revising seeing as I am 2 days behind my revision schedule but instead, seeing as it was lovely and sunshiney, I went on a walk to calf hey reservoir. We didn't go all the way down the lane to see the reservoir as there have been reports of snakes biting people down there and I would like to avoid that at all costs. On the way back we stopped at the pub where I treated myself and my sister to a glass of coke and we had a very windy sit in the beer garden.   As much fun as I had, it unfortunately means that I have to spend all of tomorrow revising when I would rather be blogging and spending time doing oh sweet nothing.   p.s this is my 200th post - woohoo!!   Facebook | Tumblr | Twitter | Questions | Pinterest

New In: Hair Products

Image
  Top: Tresemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner Bottom: Boots Coconut and Almond Leave-in Conditioner, VO5 Plump it up back combing dry shampoo   Over the past few weeks I have been tired of my hair being super soft one day and greasy the next and then my dry shampoo making my hair feeling groggy so I decided it was time to buy some new hair products. Tresemmé Keratin Smooth shampoo and conditioner: I saw these in ASDA for £5 each but decided to wait and luckily they were £4.99 in Boots and on a buy get one free offer. I'm never really sure what my hair type is as it's not coloured, dry or damaged and I can rarely find products for normal hair that  I haven't already used. The Tresemmé Keratin Smooth is designed to control frizz, make your hair super soft and make it easier to style, which sounds good to me!   Coconut & Almond leave-in conditioner: I saw this whilst I was in boots and decided to buy it as it was only £1.39 and I have had my Au

    Kimono - Matalan // Crop top - Topshop // Shorts - Topshop // Sunglasses - Pound Shop // Boots - Doc Martens // Camera - Olympus Trip 2 days of sun in a row? Well done England! However I know 2 days of good weather is too much for you and it is going to rain for the next 2 days but who cares, I got to go outside without tights on. I had a bit of a mare this morning because I didn't know what to wear and I just want new clothes! I was going to wear my white skater dress from Topshop but it is unbelievably see through so I may have to part with it *sobs*. Anyhow I ended up opting for this - pastels and kimono.  I love these shorts that I got from topshop last year, they're really soft but I accidently bought them in a size too big. They look great with the crop top too which I always reach for whenever it's sunny. Today I popped back to Ramsbottom to go to the vintage fair which was much smaller than previous months but I think they're having c

1940's Weekend 2013

          Cardigan - Tesco // Shirt - Primark // Skirt- Miss Selfridge // Shoes - New Look // Bag - Primark   So today I ventured out to the 1940's weekend in Ramsbottom with my Mom and sister. It's so much fun as everyone dresses up and takes part. I think this year is was much better than the 2 previous years that I have attended because it was sunny and much more was happening, including lots of vintage stalls, which I obviously enjoyed very much. We drifted around Ramsbottom looking in all of the charity shops and had a wander onto the platform, where there was a singer and war memorabilia (and suitcases).   I hope you're all having a fab weekend in the sun!!   xoxox   Facebook | Tumblr | Twitter | Questions | Pinterest

Review: Revlon Photoready Foundation

Image
   I recently ran out of my Maybelline dream matte mousse, which I only bought because I was in desperate need, and I wanted to use a foundation that was actually good and not buying it simply because it was cheaper than all the others. I asked on twitter for some suggestions for a relatively cheap but good foundation and I was told about this one: Revlon Photoready. I got it in the shade 002 vanilla, the lightest shade obviously since I am a pale little ginger. It is also has SPF 20 (which I only just realised whilst looking at these photos) which is also helpful for protecting my skin in the summer since I don't like putting sun cream on my face. At first, it doesn't really look as though the foundation has done anything, so me being me I put a little bit more on to ensure that it looks good. When it's 'settled in' a bit you can see that it actually gives a really good coverage, covering red patches which I have a lot of. However, it doesn't seem

     Dress - Topshop // Necklace - New Look // Socks - Topshop // Shoes - Converse. My 20 year old sister, Laura, wants to venture into world of blogging so I told her that I would take some outfit pictures and feature her in a post. She is like all new bloggers: terrible at posing but I am sure she'll get the hang of it (eventually). She normally dresses quite plainly but now she wants to venture into fashion and try new things. She hasn't yet got a blog but you can follow her on twitter for now.   Facebook | Tumblr | Twitter | Questions | Pinterest
