2012

So here is a not so little round up of what I did this year:

I spent a ridiculous amount of time with this lovely man

I got a job, it might not be my dream job but for now it's great and it's really helped boost my self confidence which is a big thing for me.

I finished my Illustration degree.

I drank way too many cocktails.

I didn't get a holiday but I went to some lovely places including; Glastonbury for a pagan wedding, the safari park numerous times, Weston-Super-Mare to spend an afternoon on the pier, Chiquito's many times, My cousins wedding, Walks in the countryside with Pete and Birminghams Frankfurt Christmas Market.

I spent too much time in the bath and too much money in Lush.

I painted my nails in an array of different colours and designs.

I dip dyed my hair random colours all summer.

I took full advantage of Orange Wednesdays.

And I posted my many rambles on this here blog.

Overall a pretty decent year although I did spend a few months jobless and broke which definitely were not a highlight, I'm feeling pretty excited for 2013 and I plan on being a lot more adventourous and independant and of course I hope to keep improving my blog.
I hope you all had a great year and are as excited for 2013 as I am.

Christmas/Birthday Goodies


This year I got lots of lovely things for my birthday and christmas so I thought I'd share with you the beauty products I received as this is meant to be a beauty blog, so here's my little stash from my lovely family and friends who know me so well.

My lovely Beth got me the Soap & Glory Best Of All set which is pretty amazing it had 9 full sized products some of which I've never tried including a Sexy Motherpucker Lipgloss and the Thick And Fast mascara which I forgot to include in the photo, I also got the mini hatbox set which had travel sized versions of some of thier best products which are perfect for keeping at Petes.
Being a Lush addict I was expecting a few Lush items, Beth got me Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly which I've never tried and my favourite Ballistic Dragons Egg, Pete got me the Christmas Candy Box and my mom got me the Sweet Christmas one, My aunt and uncle also got me a Lush Gift Card which I spent on sale goodies  (haul coming soon) at 8am on boxing day and they got me the Bubble Beard wand which I'm looking forward to trying.
My lovely nan bought me an adorable little set of Christmas bubble baths with scents like chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla and they're all sparkly.
I got a few new additions to my ever growing nail varnish collection for my birthday, my brother got me Topshop's Dark Knight polish which I'm currently wearing and Beth got me an amazing Nails Inc set which I'm dying to try out.
My mom bought me Benefit's It's Potent Eye Cream which is the only thing I actually asked for this year so I was over the moon to recieve it and I was lucky enough to also get the Feeling Dandy kit from my parents too which has been on my wishlist since it was released and Pete's lovely mom got me the She's So Jetset box which I'm thrilled about.

I know this post is a little late as christmas was nearly a week ago and I hope people don't mind me posting this because I know some people don't like posts like this but as a beauty blogger I wanted to show you all my latest beauty acquisitions the same way I would if I'd been shopping and I'm extremely grateful for all the lovely things I recieved.

Sunday Summary

Christmas presents from Pete, New toy, Best Of All from my bestie, Sales shopping, Adorable new socks, Amazing Batman Print top from my mom.

So I haven't posted in nearly a week which kind of sucks but I've been at home for all of 2 days since Christmas eve and as one of those was Christmas day I've had literally no time for blogging but all of my shifts this week are relatively short so I'm hoping to end this impromptu hiatus and get back to blogging as my camera is full of pictures for posts right now.
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas but I have to say I'm a little relieved it's over now as working in retail the weeks before and after Christmas has not been the most pleasant way to spend the holidays and after a 9 and a half hour shift on boxing day I'm feeling pretty exhausted.
I'm hoping to post about the lovely gifts I received later today, I know some people don't like those kinds of posts but I personally love reading them.
As I said I'm hoping to starting posting on here properly again from tomorrow and the week ahead is looking a lot more relaxing which I'm thankful for, obviously it's New Years Eve tomorrow and this year I plan on having a rather quite one just with Pete as I have a 7am shift tomorrow and a 9am shift on New Years Day. It's also Pete's birthday on Thursday which I am very much looking forward to as I can't wait to give him his presents and we'll probably go for drinks on the night so I can make up for my lack of NYE drinking.
