Where Have I Been

Hello Everyone

This post is going to be an update to where I have been for the last four months since I last wrote on my blog. Firstly I want to say a big sorry for not being around for the last four months but they have been a roller-coaster and I am afraid that my blog took the back burner.

To start with I lose my job due to illness and then had to fight the company (not going to mention the company on here) to get them to admit they were in the wrong by getting rid of me. This took a long time and after a few months I manage to get them to admit they were wrong and was given my old job back but to be then informed my old job was already taken and to work within the company again I would be place within a department that had a vacancy. So I was not a happy bunny and started looking for a new job.

Having no job meant having no money which was a problem as I booked a holiday to Cornwall with my boyfriend, cousin and her boyfriend before I lost my job but I could not cancel the holiday has we already paid for everything so I still went to Cornwall but did not do half the things we had planned to do which wasn't good. So we will be going back to enjoy it correctly.

In August was also my boyfriends and my birthday, I reached the big 25th but it wasn't the best birthday as I didn't have my boyfriend around as he was on a work training week in Hull but my friends sure did make up for it love to them all.

Then came October the best month of 2012 after a few different interviews of a range of job, I was offered a part time customer service assistant role for a local supermarket which I snap up straight away and which has now turned into a full time job due to someone leaving and pay day is Friday so Christmas shopping here I come.

Also in October there was loads of celebrations within the family in-law including a family reunion with family members from Canada, two 21st birthdays (twins) and family meal, which was brilliant especially the free bar at the 21st birthday party.

So again I am sorry but hopefully now life as been sorted I can get back to what I love and enjoy every moment.

Here is some pictures from the last few months:

Recent Charity Shop Haul

Good Afternoon

I have recently being loving charity shopping more then actually shopping but I do agree with athriftymrs that lately charity shops have increased there prices and now you are some times better of buying the product from the store for a few extra pounds to get it brand new, especially with things from stores such as Primark and George at Asda who are cheap already. 

But I have still managed to find some things that made me apart with my cash the little I have so here is what I brought.

Was £3

This top looks better on then off, it was original from Next and is brilliant with the weather we are having here in the UK as its light and is easy to layer things with. I was first draw to the top due to the flower print as I love any thing with a floral prints and I am glad I brought this as it goes brilliant with jeggings. 

Was £4.25

Another floral print item but this time in the form of a dress. This is also brilliant for this weather as it is light weight and easy to layer. The dress was also original from Next it was a day to find good things in charity shops from Next.

Was £3.99

Me and wedges have a bit of a love/hate relationship I love them but most wedges hate me especially my toes. So due to this I don't spend to much money on wedges as I know after a while they will start hurting my little toes and in turn normally means I will stop wearing them or give them to family and friends. I love these wedges which are original from Accessorize and so far so good they have not hurt my toes. 

Was £4.99

I love these shoes and so glad I found these. They are orginial from Marks and Spencers and the reason I love them so much is the fact they fit me like a glove which never happens with me and shoes they are ever to big or just a little small. 

Couple of thing I would suggest when buying shoes from charity shoes is one try them on has you have  to remember some one else as worn them first and also I would suggest checking the shoes over and see if there is any repairs needed and if so how much will it cost you. 

Have you been shopping in a charity shop lately?
What do you think about charity shops increasing their prices?

Glamour with Benefit

Hello I know I should told you all about this at the beginning of the month which I do apologise for not doing. But I though I better tell you anyway before the month is out. The thing I am on about is the partnering between this months Glamour magazine and Benefit cosmetics. 

There is three different front covers this month with three different benefit cosmetics. 
The front covers are that of Eva Longoria (Above) Kylie Minogue and Fern Cotton and the three benefit cosmetics on offer are 'The POREfessional', 'That Gal' and 'BADgal Lash Mascara'.

I got 'That Gal' which is a face primer and is one of benefits to sellers. At full size this retails for £21.50 where with Glamour the sample size is only £2 a saving of £19.50, which is always good in my book.

I like trying a sample size of cosmetics that are over £10 as I believe if you don't like the product then you are wasting your money on cosmetics you will not use and sample size are brilliant to take away on holiday as they don't take up to much room in your bag. 

So have you brought Glamour and if so what Benefit cosmetic did you get?

After I wrote this my mummy came home with another Glamour magazine for me and this time came with 'BADgal Lash Mascara' thank you mummy and I will be using this want I go on holiday this summer.

See You Soon

My Jubilee Outfit

Hello, hope you all had a wonderful weekend and if you are from the UK you have enjoyed having the two extra days of work. I know my boyfriend enjoyed them dearly but wasn't happy this morning mind when the alarm went off at 5.3o am.

I still can't believe HRH Queen Elizabeth II has been our queen for 60 years I can't imagine anyone else being in the same job role for 60 years. But this weekend as shown how much people in the UK love their queen with celebrations everywhere. 

On Monday I went to my family in law jubilee garden party and typically UK weather it decided to rain but lucky enough they thought about that and had everything undercover and heaters left, right and centre. 

So with this in mind I decided to wear this, sorry about the face expressions my boyfriend was taking the picture and was trying to make me laugh. 

Dress: H&M Last Season
Cardigan: Primark Sale 
Belt: Primark
Tights: Tesco
Jewellery: Primark

It turned out being a nice afternoon after the sun decided to shine upon us and we had a fab  time enjoyed each other company and eating delious food like this lovely cake that a family member made. 

I hope you had a brilliant Jubilee weekend what ever you did. 

See You Soon

From Canada With Love

Hello, yesterday I receive a lovely package from the wonderful Kathryn from provincialbudgetbeauty I would say to you all go and check her out as she is wonderful and her blog is totally one of my favourites to read. 

I have had my eye on E.L.F's brushes for a while but the problem is I like to touch and feel the brushes before I buy them, but the problem is E.L.F brushes are normally only available online. But while talking Kathryn one day I found out that a store in Canada where selling them, just my luck really. I told her that I wish the UK had something like that so I could feel the brushes and finally buy them. 

Later on that day I receive an email from Kathryn saying that she was going to send me some E.L.F brushes I was so shock by how kind she was being and I love her for her kindness. 

And this is what I receive from her. 

2 eye brushes and a face brush 

The brushes are soft which I love and if I get on with these ones then I will be totally buying some more so thank you again Kathryn for sending these to me you are the best. 

Have any of you tried E.L.F brushes? If so what ones do think I should get next?

See You Soon
