My lip pet hate..

Hello Everyone! Hope your all okay :)

This is probably going to sound like a bit of a rant post.. However, its not intended to be so in advance I am very sorry if it is. I know most girls will agree with me when I say having dry, chapped lips is one of the worst things? If you think this, and get dry lips quite often then carry on reading... 

Ever since about the age of 16 when my friend introduced me to this lip balm...

I have always gone out and brought it.. I've been using it a lot recently because for some reason my lips have been getting dry every few days.. One day they will be completely fine and then the next.. VOILA, they are dry again! SO frigging annoying. Anyway.. 

I used to think that Carmex was the best lip balm ever, no exaggeration. I used to love it. Theres something about the smell too. Im quite a big fan of it. However, the last few weeks when i've been using it on a daily basis. I've been some what disappointed with it and i've kind of lost my love for it? I don't feel that it works as good as what I need it to. 

When I apply it to my dry lips. It sort of instantly makes them feel smooth and soft and completely normal, but then about an hour later after its worn of my lips they start to feel as if they are getting dry again. 

I will probably carry on using this until I finish it, because I HATE wasting products too. But once I'm getting to the end of it I will think about purchasing something else within the lip balm department. 

What Lip balms would you recommend?

That spring time feeling :)

Hello Everyone :) 

Primark tights
Zara bag (old)
Hope your all okay :) In the last outfit post I did, I mentioned that I had taken a trip to New Look and brought a few pieces. I found this dress which I thought was an absolute bargain. The pictures don't do it justice (I was in a rush taking them so apologies for that! *bad blogger, slaps wrist*) Anyway its a lovely corally/pinky colour which I absolutely love and is perfect for spring! You can't really see in the picture but it has some gold zips which I think add a more sophisticated feel to the dress. 

I wore this dress with THESE black boots from BOOHOO which I'm completely in love with. They are so comfy and the perfect height. When the weather gets a bit warmer here in the UK I would obviously get my legs out instead of wearing tights and I would probably wear sandals instead of boots. 

At the moment I'm trying to get out of wearing disco pants and a top/jumper all the time. And jazz up my wardrobe a little bit by buying more dresses. I always have to wear something that is comfy I don't think there is anything worse than not being comfy in clothing, so I guess thats why I go for the easy option of leggings/disco pants and a top/jumper... But I'm being WILD and wearing more dresses at the moment... So look out for more outfit posts where I am NOT wearing disco pants/leggings and a comfy top! 

Is there anything that you have brought recently that you thought was a complete bargain? Leave the links below! 



P.S As I mentioned in my previous post I am going to attempt to run the 5K race for life.. This is going to be a HUGGEE challenge for me so if you fancy sponsoring me then I would really appreciate it! Its for such a good cause too!

Race for life.

Hello everyone! 

Hope you are all well. This is an unusual blog post and is going to be quite a short one. 3 years a go on Monday (just gone) I sadly lost my Grandma who was suffering from stomach cancer. Because of this, I am participating in race for life. I am SO unfit, so this is definitely going to be a challenge for me. If any of you want to sponsor me then I will leave the link below to my Just Giving page. Any donation will be greatly appreciated. 

As I start training for it I will probably start to do more healthy recipe ideas for you all and my training routine :) Let me know what you think! Are any of you doing race for life this year or have you done it?

New Look :)

Hello Everyone! 

I know what your all thinking.. Where the hell have I been? If you've been following my blog for a while you will know that I am in my third year of uni! If you didn't know before you do now :) well anyway... How can I describe third year? Work work & more work. (Don't worry I have been going out too) But I haven't really brought anything new or been trying any new products.. BUT I went out this evening with my Mum for a cute little meal & I took a picture of what I was wearing so I thought I would blog about it...

Yes I did take the pictures on my phone instead of my Nikon. So I'm extremely sorry about the quality (and my odd socks! Do any of you wear odd socks or is it just me?) Anyway.. A few weeks ago when I popped into town with my friend she needed to take some stuff back to New Look. I've never really been a fan of New Look due to never finding things that I like in there, however, I found THIS top, for £9.99 which I thought was a complete bargain! Its so comfy and its just something you can wear for a casual look or if you wanted to dress it up a bit then you can wear it with disco pants and heels for a more comfy evening look.

When I was in New Look they also had some other nice items, however I had to resist.. But I might of brought a dress which Im completely in love with, so expect another outfit post quite soon. I teamed the top above with my urban outfitters disco pants. River Island cut out boots and my Zara bag for a casual evening look. :) 

What have you been up to? What clothes have you recently brought?
