♥ Another Update...

This year has absolutely flown by. It seems like it was January the other day and suddenly it's Christmas Day!

It's been a very hectic year for me. Turning 21, moving house, renovating and more. It means i have sadly neglected my little blog for quite a few months now which has really upset me as I've missed it quite a lot recently.

After a few months, i developed a bit of writers block and couldn't find any inspiration for posts. This  blogging 'break' ended up being a lot longer than i wanted. 

I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas and i hope you have a lovely New Year.

2016 - I'll make something happen! :-)

Yet another Update...

Hello again, it's been a while! Sorry for the silence over the last two months. It's been extremely hectic. I moved into my own house with my other half on the first of July. We've taken over this house but it's very much a work in progress. We're renovating the whole house - as no-one has lived here for over 5 years and lots of things need to be re-done.

I'm enjoying this though. I mean, how many people my age get to completely design their house to exactly how they want it? I also love a bit of DIY and decorating so i'm literally having a ball with it. I didn't have the easiest of home lives which is why moving house was a priority for me. 

I will be posting some DIY and decorating style posts in the next few months - as it's something i'm interested in and enjoy so i hope others feel the same as i do. I will be posting some before and after photos as rooms are finished. 

Thank you for everyone who has stuck around the last 2 months despite the radio silence, i've still kept up to date reading all of my favourite blogs and finding new blogs to read in the #bbloggers hashtag.

Pugs not Drugs ♥

Has anyone else noticed the obsession with everything being pug related recently? i have and i'm loving it. They're adorable. So when i was offered a chance to get a new phone case and i saw this little beauty - i of course went straight for it. I'm so clumsy that not having a phone case is ridiculous.

Iconemesis allowed me to choose one of their cases to keep - and i've always gone for the silicon versions before. I chose the Gemma corral Pug Case for iPhone 5 & 5s* which is currently only sale for only £5!

I drop my phone very often - and thankfully, since i've had this case on i've not chipped it on broken the screen! I always catch myself looking at it and giggling because i find pugs ridiculously funny. Work colleagues who have pugs love it too! 

They have a lot of cases currently in the sale now on  so you should check it out and grab yourself a pug case!

Home Decor Wishlist ♥

I'm super excited right now as i'm moving into my new house next week, and i've spent the last few days obsessively looking at home decor. It's my favourite kind of shopping - i love diy and decorating so much - it's an obsession. i'm also quite money savvy so i love getting good quality products for a low price!

Here are a few of the items i'm going to be grabbing!

1) B&M Small Ornate Oval Mirror £3.99 - I love this so much. I want lots of mirrors and lots of white decor in my new home. i'd like this hanging up in the bathroom and for only £3.99 - it's super purse friendly.
2 & 3) New York & Paris Cushions £7.99 each or 2 for £14 - We've already bought some city skyline wallpaper - and these two cushions would look lovely on the sofa. I'm not big into cushions unless i can get comfy with them!
4) Ikea Tarva Bedside Table £35 each - I love pine furniture and couldn't live without a bedside table so i can have my water with me when i sleep.

Update ♥

I know i've been super sporadic recently on here, but i've had a really busy few weeks! I turned 21 (older but not wiser), jetted off on holiday and even managed to go to a festival. I'd rather have a few weeks not posting than put out posts that i'm not happy with personally. But thanks for sticking with me anyway, it's appreciated!

So, i turned 21 on May 29th and i got to spend my birthday in Manchester with my boyfriend and his friends in Fort hope. It was a lovely evening and my very romantic boyfriend had booked us into the Hotel Football which was absolutely amazing! I had a whole weekend of celebrating with friends and family - i wish i could turn 21 every year from now on!

My mum booked me a holiday for my birthday - 5 days in the sun with my boyfriend right on the beach! We were in Santa Susanna, Spain and the weather was lovely the whole time we were there. We visited nearby Barcelona which was beautiful - especially the architecture! I did manage to come back with pretty much no tan though - forever pale. 

Last weekend, i ended up spending my day at Download Festival to go and see my favourite band ever. Which is easily my favourite gig now! It was super muddy and wet but it was a lot of fun.

I dyed my hair on Saturday again so now i have bright pink hair! Review will be up soon!

So, thats why i haven't been posting. Watch this space because after this weekend i've got lots of new posts coming up!

EOS Lipbalm 'Strawberry Sorbet'

Hi there! I know I've been really bad at posting the last few weeks, but it's because I've been so busy with work and sorting stuff out for the next few weeks! It's been a long month - i restarted a health kick including eating and drinking better. But also switching up my beauty regime to make sure that my skin and hair is also healthy. 

I'm always repurchasing lip balms. I don't think i have ever finished one, it's impossible i swear. I like what Vaseline does for my lips but hate applying it - it grosses me out putting my finger in the tin to get the product out! 

Whilst browsing Manchester Topshop, i saw they had an American beauty section with brands like NYX, EOS and others. I immediately had to try one of the EOS Smooth Sphere lip balms - I've been seeing people use them on YouTube for years and singing their praises often too. 

EOS Smooth Sphere ' Strawberry Sorbet' Lip balm (£7 Topshop) is a really good little addition to anyones handbag. I love that you just apply to your lips - no messing about with sticking your hand in a tin. It's not too soft either so you don't end up ruining it while you apply. 

The lip balm is '95% Organic, 100% Natural and Paraben and Petroleum free' according to EOS which is always a big bonus for me. Once you've applied, you lips taste super yummy like strawberry sweets and this scent lingers for surprising long. The formulation is really nourishing and hydrating but not too sticky or thick. It contains Shea Butter, Jojoba oil and Vitamin E so your lips are getting some serious TLC when you apply this.

If you're like me and are obsessive about re-applying lip balm, you need to try this! It also comes in other flavours like Mint and Honeysuckle too!
