Say Hello to Emily May


Today is quite an exciting post for you all.

So if you went to the Bristol Bloggers meetup at Frankies and Bennies back in February you probably will of met Emily. She kindly came along with me as I was a little nervous about going by myself.
Emily has always been quite curious about my blog and has recently decided to create her own. Her blog is quite different to mine and is a lot more lifestyle/advice/personal experience based.

I just really wanted to let you all know about Emily's blog and encourage you all to go and have a look at it!

The link is - http://emilymaythorne.blogspot.co.uk/

Please take some time to check it out, follow it and maybe even comment or tweet her some feedback?

Her twitter name is; @em_ily_may

Emily will be attending the meetup in Bristol that me and Michelle are organizing so that's exciting!!

We have lots of posts planned together for the future so keep your eyes peeled for them!

Wilko's Stationary Haul!



I have another haul for you today....woops!

I love Wilkinson's. They always have the best budget Christmas decorations, the best pic n mix and I always manage to pick up a bargain in there.

Wilko's have a really nice card/stationary section and on my last trip to Wilko's I managed to pick up a few goodies.
First up is this adorable Minnie Mouse pencil case. It cost £1.50 which I think is an absolute steal because I know that if you were to buy this from a disney store of disney land it would cost so so much more! I'm currently using it as a pencil case although when I go to Disneyland Paris this New Year I may use it as a makeup bag. It's a bit of an awkward shape but its just too cute.

Then I purchased two things to help fuel my letter writing addiction. A pack of plain but cute brown envelopes and some really nice quality writing paper. I think both of these were either 50/55p each so they really are fab for those little moments when you just want to put pen to paper!

So bit of an odd haul but I thought this might be interesting to some of you nosy folk out there!

Have a good week,

Primark Haul!





 







I love Primark, you guys love Primark hauls - It just works!

Fox Gloves
I adore these. Aren't they just adorable? As November promises to be a chilly one I just had to have these. These were a steal at only £2! Woodland creatures + winter = WINNER!

Wine red bobble hat
After watching both Tanya Burr and Zoe Sugg's VLOGMAS last year I was sure of one thing. I needed a wine red bobble hat for the winter. I think both of theirs were from Topshop but I found one really similar in Primark. It is a lovely over sized bobble hat with a tiny bit of sparkle in it that twinkles really beautifully if you catch it under the light. This was, like the gloves an absolute bargain - £2! If you are after gloves/scarves/hats this autumn/winter I would really recommend that you go into Primark and have a little mooch around. You will probably find what you're looking for!

Lace/Patterned Playsuit
I came across this gem in the best section of all - the sale. It fits so beautifully and is really flattering. The lace adds a really nice detail and I think it's bang on trend this year as it's monochrome. This was an amazing price as it was reduced from £10 to £5!

Baseball style dress
Lastly is this baseball style dress. It is a really nice length but one problem with it is that it is incredibly see through. I will just have to swear shorts underneath it and then it will be ok. This is actually from the children's section but it just and just fits me so I recon I can get away with it for a couple of months. It was only £2! CRAZZZZZZY!

So there you go! I hope you enjoyed this little Primark haul. Let me know if you would like to see more hauls. 

Stay safe

Essential extracts coconut milk cream bath



Ok, I admit it...I'm a bit of a bath lover.
After coming home from school on a wet miserable day I like nothing more than getting into a steaming hot, bubbly bath, with candles all around me. I then normally proceed in putting a towel over the toilet seat, putting my laptop ontop and then I can watch movies in the bath, woo!
I have built up quite a shamefull collection of bubble baths, and can't resist buying them whenever I find a sweet smelling one. 
I picked this one up from Marks and Sparks last week for the small price of £1.
500ml for £1 is quite the bargain, plus it is one of my favourite scents ever, coconut!
It makes loads of bubbles, and doesn't leave you feeling sticky after getting out the bath.
The scent isn't too strong once poured into the bath, but that's propably because I have the bath so deep.
Overall, considering this cost £1, this is a good budget product to pamper yourself with.

Victoria's Secret - Pocket Mirror




A couple of weeks ago I went to London shopping for the day and went to a few shops I don't normally get the chance to visit, and Victoria's Secret was one of them.
I pretty sure it's near Oxford Street, and boy what a beautiful shop it is! Inside the decor is so unique and it has a real lovely ora about it. The staff are lovely too! Very helpful and not snooty at all!
I couldn't help but buy something.
I bought some knickers (not putting photos of  them onto the big wide web tho!) and this little compact mirror.
It cost £6 which I know is a bit steep for a mirror, but oh well...everyone deserves a little luxury every once in a while. The pink glitter is so sparkly (well done for stating the obvious there Lucy!) and it has a plastic cover over it, so that the glitter doesn't drop of.
It opens and closes with a magnet and has 2 panels.
It is a good size, not to big nor small.
Overall a lovely little mirror.
Have you been to Victoria's Secret in London?
Did you pick up anything nice?


Ps - I may be away for a short while as my laptop is going to the menders - sorrrrrry!
