Take Off Your Colours

So now the snow has all melted I thought I'd take the opportunity to take some (perhaps too many) outfit photos and get some better pictures of my new boots, unfortunately it was really windy so my hair looks a little wild.

This is a pretty average outfit for me, I wore it yesterday to go for a nice pub lunch with Pete, it was actually pretty mild (10 degrees according to the car) but the wind was freezing so I'm glad I wore my big khaki jacket. I've absolutely fallen in love with this t-shirt too it is super soft and I'm really drawn to tye dye stuff right now.

Jacket- Glamourous
T-shirt- H&M
Jeans- H&M
Boots*- Barratts
Necklace- Primark

Product Review: Lush Curly Wurly

Curly Wurly- £9.75

I recently decided to try and get more samples when I'm out shopping in an attempt to stop myself wasting money on products that don't suit me and where better to get samples than Lush, my local Lush is especially friendly and the staff are always helpful and talkative. A few weeks ago I picked up a sample of Curly Wurly, the pot was quite small so I didn't think it would go very far but I got a full two uses from the tiny pot and I went to Lush yesterday and they gave me another two sample pots of this to try although I've already made up my mind about it which brings us on to the review.
Like Big this shampoo has an interesting texture, it's a little sticky and has quite large bits of coconut in it, it doesn't lather as easily as Big and you really have to work it through the hair to get it to lather. It's also really hard to rinse out all the coconut and I was still finding bits after I'd rinsed out my conditioner, I would recommend using this with a slightly heavier conditioner as despite it being a moisturising shampoo my hair did feel quite dry after I'd rinsed it out probably due to having to work it into the hair quite harshly.
The smell of this is fantastic and even Pete commented on how nice my hair smelt after I'd used this (he said it smelt like holiday bless him) the smell really does linger and even the day after I'd washed it I could still smell the light summery coconut scent on my hair. 
After use my hair did seem a little curlier and I was suprised at how shiny and healthy it looked even the day after washing it, it looked clean and light which suprised me as this is packed with quite heavy ingredients like shea butter, cocoa butter and olive oil so I had worried it would weigh my hair down and make it greasy quite quickly.
Overall I absolutely loved this and after I've got through my two samples I will definitely be purchasing this.

Be My Valentine

Valentines Ideas

So I thought I'd put together a little valentines day themed wishlist as valentines day is drawing close and I've been feeling a bit soppy and loved up recently, some of the items are a little bit specific to me for example I don't think most people would be wishing to recieve a Goosebumps boxset for Valentines day.
If you click the little pictures it will take you to the products, my favourite item is the little P ring it is so cute.

Sunday Summary

Trying out Honey Bee, Marie Antoinette, Snow outside work, Lunch with Pete, My new baby, Cinders, Pj day, Movie marathon, Ruby Red Slippers which was lovely, Treats from Pete, Feeling ill, Last night before things got drunk and messy.

So I'm currently sat wrapped in a blanket watching Harry Potter and feeling sorry for myself as I've just broken out in a cold, the rest of my weekend was pretty much the same, blogging in my pj's watching dvd's and moping. I went out Friday night for a friends birthday which involved predrinks at her's before spending a few pretty odd hours up town and doing my best to comfort one of my oldest friends who's was drowning her broken heart with champagne followed by Jack Daniels.
The rest of my week was ok, things were really quiet at work probably because of the snow, I spent quite a lot of time with Pete watching the snow fall and we took a nice snowy walk to the pub last Sunday night to meet his dad which as usual resulted in lots of talk about his wedding and drinking a little too much followed by a snowball fight in the pub car park.
I got my laptop this week which is my first big purchase since I started my job so I'm feeling pretty chuffed and it's made blogging so much easier to fit around work and Pete however it's also made online shopping dangerously easy.
 I've made a couple of purchases this weekend including a couple of dress options for the wedding and a few H&M goodies as I found a couple of discount codes; one for £5 off your order and another for 25% off the highest priced item in your basket. You can find both codes here if you click "show voucher code" it opens the H&M website and copies the code so you just need to right click paste in the voucher box once you've confirmed your order and the second code is missing a zero at the start so just add the zero and it should work.

Wedding Guest Dress- Need Advice

Wedding Guest Dress

Right my lovelies I need some advice, Pete's dad is getting married and I need to buy a nice new dress for the occasion but I'm really struggling, I've only ever been to two weddings and one of those was a very low key pagan wedding. 
The wedding is in Scotland in April, it's going to be quite a small ceremony with close friends and family, so basically I need your advice on picking a dress I've found the ones above but I'm open to more suggestions.
