Sunday Update #3

(From right to left)
1+2. My cold is still raging through my body in the form of a gross cough, So this week yucky medicine and plenty of vitamin C is what has been needed to get me back to full strength.
3+6. Thursday was my nephews 9th Birthday so we celebrated with a mini party at my sisters house. I would also like to add that at the age of 20 I would still LOVE a Spongebob cake...even though I hate the icing.
4. I definitely should have taken this picture before i mixed the chilli with the rice because the picture looks gross ha ha. but It was lovely chilli anyway! coming home to mummy dearest's cooking is the best.
5. The usual picture of harry the dog.
7. The usual picture of Mr.Muffins
8. Another mummy's cooking treat. Spaghetti Bolognese (my favourite). Though we ran out of spaghetti so had to use tagliatelle.

Collection 2000 Cream Puff

I bought this lip cream ages ago from Collection2000 originally the appeal was the price. I'm always looking for lipsticks but I'm really fussy. I normally go for nude colours or really light pinks. It's been so long since I bought this I cant remember the price but I have the feeling it was around the £3 mark(which for a very poor student was a big plus).

 The biggest appeal of this product is that it dries. I hate the feeling of sticky or even glossy lips. This colours dries and stays on really well (unless you're drinking a lot then you will need it by your side for a top up). I chose the colour 'Fairy Cake 3' It's a bit brighter than the colours I would usually go for but I am trying to break that habit as I would like some nice colours for nights out. Oh and also this product smells amazing! it really does smell like cake!

Golden Girl

Today I decided to treat myself to a copy of Cosmo. I always experience inner turmoil when it comes to buying a magazine that costs as much as Cosmo. But the fact that this months edition came with nail polish made it easy to decide!! the possible colours were pink, orange and yellow, so i searched for a magazine with the yellow polish. I have a few Missguided Nail polishes, all from previous editions of Cosmo and they are always good quality. I was disappointed when I saw that this polish was sparkly i was a bit disappointed as I do prefer matte colours...but after trying it out I decided I liked it. The colour is a lot more yellow in real life, it looks really gold in the picture :/

Sunday Update #2

Seeing as the Sunday update is a new post I have been thinking of different ways to present it, So as all I have done this week is mope about the house with a cold I thought I would just include the pictures I have taken! Also I don't think my blog has been showing up on some peoples GFC list...if it has been showing up please let me know :) Hope everyone had a better week than I did!

When you were young

 I have finally decided to show off my new earrings from Miss Selfridge! I can't remember how much they were exactly (£3-£4) but I do remember I thought it was a pretty good deal. I did also buy a double finger ring with a gold cross like these on it but I have no idea where it has gone (waaa!) hopefully I is somewhere hidden in the old floordrobe!! 

Anywhoozles! I must go and pick up my niece and nephew from school so enjoy my face with my lovely earrings!

Peppermint Stripes

This is my first attempt at any kind of nail art. If I paint my nails it’s normally just one colour, nothing special. But seeing as I have been ill for a few days and haven’t wanted to take any pictures I decided I would try something simple with my nails.

I have wanted some white nail polish for a while but still haven’t been into town to get any, so I found this white polish from an old manicure set. It worked pretty well but just in case, does anybody know of a good brand that does a nice white polish?

Button moon is one of my favourite Collection 2000 Hot Looks colours so I wear it a lot. I love the minty colour and I thought pairing it with the white would look nice. Reminds me of a pair of shorts I must get when I get some money (though there may be no point with the weather we are having here in England!).

Sunday Update #1

So if you have been with me for a while (first of all thankyou!) you will remember I used to post a ‘My week in pictures’ every Sunday...until my iphone broke(waaaa). As I’m trying to get back into my blogging routine I have decided to do a little Sunday update until I get my new iphone for my birthday in November (double waaaaaaa). So just a short one for this week J

The other day I decided to introduce Mr Muffins the hamster (also known as Moomin) to Harry the dog. Harry was terrified of the moving hamsterm ball and ran away, but as my mum kept telling him to ‘get it’ he got a bit too excited and I had to put poor Moo away in fear for her life. I also spent Saturday night curled up on the sofa with my duvet and my Harry. His little tongue pokes out when he sleeps! SO CUTE!

Rainy Day Dresses OOTD

While sorting out my clothes the other week this was a dress I found that I have never wore!  I think it was a ‘hand-me-down’ from one of my mum’s friends daughters, so I’m not sure where it was from, but its the kind of dress I would buy so I have no idea why it has been hanging in my wardrobe collecting dust over the past year.

Only thing is I am a funny size. Size 10 on the bottom always fits perfectly but in some shops a size 10 is to tight over my chest (Thanks again mum for the gift of big boobs) so as the dress was button up it won’t button past my waist. I didn’t mind though as it still looked nice with a black strap top underneath. I would have loved to be able to button it all the way to the top as it has a collar and I am inlove with shirts and blouses at the moment. The dress also came with a tie up belt but I didn’t quite like it, but now that I think of this a brown belt would have looked nice.

This would have been the perfect outfit to wear out and about on a warm day...sadly even though it was humid I was stuck inside because of the stupid rain! I really hope summer comes around before uni starts again in September so I can spend my holiday outside and not in front of the TV!!!

Lazy Days OOTD

If you’re anything like me you have a number of clothes sitting in your wardrobe that you never wear yet never throw out because you might wear it ‘some day’. This summer I finally got round to deciding which clothes I would wear. I got this top as a gift ages ago and never wore it until today!

I love stripes and I love how the horizontal stripes on this top change to go vertically down your arms. I think what made me neglect to wear this top for so long was because of the baggy top and fitted bottom. I paired the top with some jeans as I thought it was a bit to short to wear leggings with. This will definitely go into the keep section of my wardrobe, I think it will come in handy for those lazy days or just when I got to Uni.

Birthday Outfit OOTD

I bought this dress from Missguided for my boyfriend’s Birthday night out. If you have read my blog before you will realise burgundy/red colour of the skirt was a big seller for me! I have wanted a dress like this for a while but thought it wouldn’t suit me. But when I needed a dress for my boyfriend’s birthday and couldn’t find one anywhere I finally went on the Missguided website and they had this dress in lots of different colours, so when I saw this one I fell inlove, and better yet, it was in the sale for £19.99!!!

I like the high wasted style of the dress as I sometimes feel a bit self-conscious that my belly is sticking out, but if it was, this dress hid it. But I advise that you don’t wear this on a night out in a really busy club when the day has been very hot! I did this and ended up feeling like I was in a cooker!!!

Just a short blog for today, but finally after many promises that I would start blogging again, I finally am. I moved out of my house in Derby and came home to mummy’s house for a month until I can move into my new house, and as I have no job I will have plenty of time to blog!
