Sell Your Phone With Envirofone

Image
We all have an old phone lying around the house that just sits there. We never really know what to do with them either do we? We're not supposed to just shove them in the wheely bin so we just leave them sat in a draw, turn them on from time to time to laugh at the pictures we took when we were 13. That might be just me.   That's when I checked how much my phone (Sony Ericsson Xperia X8) was worth on Envirofone and realised that I would get £11 for it. That's not a lot but at the end of the day, it's an extra £10 that I didn't have before. All you do is make an account, click sell and you will get a parcel pack to send it off in. They will check that it turns on - but you can sell it even if it's broken - and they will e-mail you to tell you when your cheque will be posted. There are other payment options available but cheque seemed like the safest option. The whole process took just under 3 weeks, which isn't long really and that was mainly due t

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint - Rose Hip

Image
 Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint - £3.99 It seems that everyone has ranted and raved about gelly nail polishes recently so I thought that it's about time that I try them out and see what all of the fuss is about. Naturally I headed straight to Barry M who always offer the best colours and I have been impressed with their collections in the past. I wanted a white polish because it looks nice on everyone else but I think I will probably look like I'm wearing tipex especially since I am terrible at painting my nails.Instead I chose rose hip which is a really light pink shade.   To me it isn't that much more shiny than Barry M's normal nail paint and I don't find it to be very gelly. It does last longer without chipping, perhaps just under a week but I was expecting it to last way longer. I think it would look a lot better over false nails. Saying this I still really like the colour and I like that it doesn't chip after a day because it means long

Uni Room Details

Image
Finally after yacking on and on about it for ages I am finally at uni! My room is as expected, teeny tiny but, apart from my bed, I have all white furniture and really nice wooden floor. I've spent the past day making it all homely with fairy lights and rugs and trying my hardest (and failing) to tidy up. I know we all like noseying at other people's stuff especially on pinterest so here are my room details.   Don't forget to like my Facebook  page and follow me on bloglovin  and instagram: amyleehaynes!

Update: I'll be right back...

Image
Source: Pinterest I am running out of scheduled posts and haven't had time to write up some new ones. When I say I haven't had time I mean I have been doing nothing and watching a lot (I mean a lot) of Grey's Anatomy. This does mean that there wont be any posts for a bit (at least a week) as I'm busy packing for uni which is where I'll be heading on Saturday. I have no idea if I'll have time/somewhere to take outfit pictures but I will try my hardest to keep up with blogging and get back into a regular routine ASAP.   Don't forget to like my Facebook  page and follow me on bloglovin  and instagram: amyleehaynes!

Uni Checklist #3: Stationary, Books etc.

Image
When going to uni, believe it or not you need not only the nice stuff to decorate your new room but you will also need stuff to actually do some work - boring I know but it's what you're there for, right? Here's a checklist of a few bits and pieces that will be useful for all that studying you're going to do.   Source: Pinterest   Notebooks -I'm a paper snob and will only use the Oxford paper which is currently in a half price sale at Tesco so stock up now - I've bought 9. Pens. So many pens. Ruler, rubber, sharpener, hole puncher, stapler and what not Folders/ring binders. Get the leaver arch ones as they are so much sturdier Laptop Case Memory sticks Pencil case - mandatory! You cannot start school/uni without a new pencil case. It's a fact of life Diary - to keep up to date of when things need to be handed in, what you're doing and when. Books for your course** Post it notes A hot beverage of your choosing (o

Recent Favourite: REN Hot Cloth Cleanser

Image
  REN Hotcloth Cleanser - £16.00 Recently I've been trying out the REN hot cloth cleanser which seems to be a must have product in the blogger world. If you're new to the world of hot cloth cleansers, you simply smooth it all over your face to remove make up and dirt etc. (if you're wearing eyeliner this stage will leave you looking like a panda). Then soak a face cloth in hot water and place over your face. Then using the same cloth, wipe of the cleanser.   Initially I did think, how good is this actually going to be but I found to be quite refreshing, especially the stage to open up your pores. It's really soothing. I also did find an improvement in my skin after using the product as it makes sure that all of the dirt and impurities are removed which make up removers/normal cleansers don't always do. Saying that I don't like it enough to spend £16 on it. Perhaps if there's a dupe, I might use that but hey if you have the money to spend I say

Work Space Inspiration

Image
    Within the next few weeks I will be going to uni (ah) and that means back to routines, learning and the dreaded r word -- revising. Sometimes work can be such a chore especially if you're like me and can be very messy. I think the easiest way to motivate yourself is to have an appealing workspace that doesn't make you want to throw yourself out of the window. I have been trawling through Pinterest as per usual on the hunt for inspiration and some of the workspaces are beautiful (and unachievable) and it makes me want to make my space pretty and work harder.

Florals & Baggy Jumper

      H&M Jumper Topshop Cami (underneath) Urban Outfitters Skirt Topshop All Sorts Boots H&M Rings Matalan Earrings When I took these photos it was absolutely peeing it down outside which probably signifies the closing of our glorious (sort of) British summer. It's a shame I don't have to worry about being as  cold but I am looking forward to jumper weather once again. This outfit is perfect for the whole transitioning phase that we're going to be going through as it keeps you warm but not too warm - ya get me? But I do know that if I wear this outfit come December I am going be freezing my boobies off.  Don't forget to like my Facebook  page and follow me on bloglovin  and instagram: amyleehaynes!
