What's On My Bedside Table?

Friday, 22 May 2015

Hey Guys!!

A while ago we bought bedside tables as we really needed them as we were just relying on the window sill to hold our stuffand I wanted somewhere to make cute! Our bedside tables are cream and pine as our bedroom if you can't tell by the walls is white and obviously needed to match the room.

I don't keep a lot on my table just what I need and use to be honest.

First off I always keep a book by the side of me, currently I am reading Robinson Crusoe as you can see. I also have an eye mask which I find helps me sleep so much better, I have a rubbish sleep if I don't wear it. I also have a little heart ornament which says Live, Laugh, Love which was an Anniversary present off Mum and Dad.

I then have a candle which I had for Christmas, I haven't lit this one yet and don't know when I will, maybe when I have a pampering session. I also have one of our gorgeous Wedding photos as I love having a picture of us on my table, as it reminds me of how much I loved our Wedding.

I then also keep a big bottle of water to take my tablets and just to generally hydrate, I am obsessed with Volvic Touch of Fruit. I also have another candle and as you can see I sit my Me to You bear on top of it.

I hope you have enjoyed this post!!

What do you keep on your bedside table?

What's In My Handbag?

Wednesday, 20 May 2015

Hey Guys!!

I have not done a what's in my handbag? post in so long and thought I would do an updated post. This is the first one I did which was about 2 years ago when I first started my blog, so definitely needs updating. Plus if any of you are like me and nosey, you will love this post.

I now have a new handbag which was definitely needed as I had been using the brown leather one for a long time and just wanted to upgrade. I got this one from Primark for roughly £8 I think and it has 2 zip pockets and then the main compartment.

In the one zip pocket I keep my house keys, inhaler, just in case I need it, paracetamol and a cloth for my glasses.

In the 2nd zip pocket I then keep hand cream as my hands get very dry from work, my deodorant, my phone and of course a diary.

Then in the main compartment I keep my purse and chewing gum. I do also keep my vlogging camera in the main part but that's not pictured.

I hope you enjoyed this quick little post!!

See You Soon!!

Primark Haul Part 2

Friday, 15 May 2015

Hey Guys!!

As I said in yesterdays post here is the rest of what I bought in Primark and also what I got in Asda. You can see the first part of the post HERE if you want to see what clothes I got.

Accessory wise I did only get things for my hair as I don't wear jewellery, other than my wedding & engagement rings. I love flower crowns lately as it brings life to your style with out going to far. I also picked up these headband bows as I thought these are quite vintage and would look so nice with a bun. These were £1.50 to £2.50.

Being the Disney fan I am I really couldn't leave these flip flops behind and I don't usually wear flip flops. I am a bit scared to wear them though as I don't want the picture to come off. I also picked up these grey sandals as I thought these would look great with my cropped jeans. Then I picked up these nude wedges which I am wearing today at a Wedding. These all ranged from £2 to £14.

I then couldn't resist getting a new bag. The thing is I like to have a range of bags to use on nights out and when we go for meals as not all bags go with certain outfits. This bag is quite big so will fit a lot in, this was £6.

As I said in a previous post I needed short pj's as all I seem to own is winter pj's. Do you see a pattern emerging here? I picked up more Disney items, I thought these were gorgeous, especially the Cinderella ones, I actually love the shorts on the Care Bear ones. These were all £10 in Asda.

I then picked up some slippers as they will be easier to pack for the holiday than my boot slippers, these were £3. I also picked up a bandeau as a lot of my tops are off the shoulder so thought it was a good idea to get, this was £4. The socks I actually got in Peacocks and they are knee high, they will look great with my short pj's and my night shirts, these were £5 each.

And that concludes everything I bought. I am glad I did a big shop like this as I won't need to go shopping for a while now as my wardrobe is now all up to date for me.

Hope you enjoyed this post!!

Primark Haul

Thursday, 14 May 2015

Hey Guys!!

I decided to update my wardrobe and what better place to do that than Primark. I have actually split this post into 2 as I actually bought a lot and also ended up getting some things from Asda. 

As all this stuff is also for my holiday you will be getting outfit posts of everything to. I did get some different things to what I usually get, but I was rather proud that I did buy more colours.

Lets begin :)

The flowery shorts and the leopard print shorts are quite flow-y, if that's a word, and are so perfect for the hot weather, if we get hot weather. They were both £4. The mint shorts are denim and are quite short but will look fine on. These were £5.

I also picked up this gorgeous bikini, I actually seen this on couple of haul posts and videos. I love having a range of bikinis so this is a lovely addition to my collection. This was £6.

I definitely needed some new pj's and I am slightly obsessed with Disney and Comics so these were all perfect. I was a bit gutted that the trousers that went with the Simba top were out of stock though. These all ranged from £5 to £10.

I also needed some basic tops as I didn't seem to have any once I sorted out my clothes. I got 2 white, strapped tops, a mint vest, a blue vest, a white gypsy top and a grey & white bardot tops. These all ranged from £1.80 to £5.

I seen this shirt on a haul or two also and thought it would go lovely with a pair of jeans and sandals. The back has a flower mesh panel as you can slightly see. This was £10.

I have been rather loving the whole tassel trend so of course I had to get it. I can't wait to style this with some outfits. This was £12.

I got another pair of my usual skinny jeans. I also picked up these Boyfriend Cropped Jeans to add a bit of a different style. The Harry Potter joggers I actually wanted ages ago so was glad that these were in store even though they were the last ones there. These ranged from £5 to £13.

I then picked up this dress as strangely I don't own a white dress. This will be perfect for the holiday, especially if we have nice weather. This was £12.

So these were all the clothing items and you can see what accessories and clothes I bought from Asda tomorrow :)

Hope you enjoyed this post!!

My Holiday Soapbag

Wednesday, 13 May 2015

Hey Guys!!

I am off on holiday this Saturday so thought it was appropriate to share with you what I am taking in my soapbag/toiletries bag. I'm surprised that these are all the products I take, knowing me though I will add to this before Saturday. 

First off this is the toiletry bag I will be using, I always use this one as it is cute and it fits everything in which is a positive. 

The first products I always add are my shampoo and conditioner. At the moment Tea Tree seems to be cleaning my hair properly as my hair goes through stages where it doesn't clean properly with certain shampoos and conditioners. Luckily this has been working for a while now and leaves my hair so soft and smelling gorgeous.

Secondly I add my cleansing products, I have updated my cleansing routine by adding the Mask of Magnaminty face mask, I will be doing an updated post soon. These products seem to be working on my skin but we shall see when I do my updated post.

I then add my shower gel, I love this shower gel as it leaves my skin so soft and it smells lovely. Its actually good for my skin as I can get very dry skin sometimes.

I then add in my toothbrush, which is new, toothpaste, moisturiser/tanning lotion, razor and flannel. It's not pictured but I will be taking a tanning mitt so my hands don't turn orange.

I hope you enjoyed this post!!

See You Soon!!

My Blogging Tools

Friday, 8 May 2015

Hey Guys!!

For todays post I thought I would share with you what I use for Blogging. When I actually collected the stuff I use I don't actually have a lot, I do want to expand a bit though. Maybe get some lights for when its Winter and I'm thinking of getting some white card to use as a backdrop.

Anyway for now these are the things I use to create my posts.

This is my Husbands camera that I got him for Christmas, I would say 2 years ago maybe 3, he is kind enough to let me use it or he takes pictures for me such as outfit posts etc. This is the Nikon D3200 and I am no professional so just use it on Automatic settings. Llewellyn is practising more with it and looking more into the settings so will get him to teach me one day so I can do it when he's in work. You can have a look at it HERE.

Of course you can't blog without your trusty note pads. These note pads I actually received from my friend Caydi in America so I'm not sure where she got them. The pink one I use for all the scheduling and what post is going up when. Also I keep track of whether I have included links if needed, whether I have taken photos and whether I have written everything needed. The black one I use to record any ideas I have for any upcoming posts.

I don't use a lot of apps but I do use some for blogging. I use Fotor to edit my pictures, make collages and also make my thumbnails for vlogs. Then I just use the usual social media apps, Blogger to write on the go and Bloglovin' to read any posts I've missed. Yes I do have a picture of Matthew Lewis as my background as he is my latest man crush!!

I then use this camera to Vlog and occasionally take pictures with. I used to have a black Samsung WB125 but that broke so now have this Samsung WB35F in White. I love it and the quality of the vlogs are awesome. You can have a look at the details of this camera HERE.

What I haven't pictured is my laptop and as you can see from the title photo, there is a bit of a theme in the technology I use. It is all Samsung!! I will probably upgrade this laptop in the next year or so as I have had it a few years now and would like to invest in a Macbook or Mac PC. I'm not sure of the model of this one but I have found a link to one that is similar so you can have a look at it HERE

Hope you enjoyed this little post!!

My Favourite Netflix Shows

Wednesday, 6 May 2015

Hey Guys!!

As you can tell by the title of this post I thought I would share with you my favourite shows. I have been watching a lot of Netflix lately and especially instead of the TV.

The Office (US)

I started watching this as a recommendation from my sister Chloe. I am so glad I did as it was so funny and I would definitely have to say Dwight is my favourite, he's just so funny. I did say though, I love Steve Carrell, but I really thought he was cringey in this but was still funny. You also get a bit of a Ross and Rachel vibe with Pam and Jim which I loved.

Once Upon A Time

This was another recommendation but from Lauren and Mum this time. I love it!! I love the fact they are all from fairytales, I wish I was ha ha I also loved the fact all the characters, each new one that is introduced, was tied in with each others story. Rumplestiltskin is my favourite character though, I think its because you feel for him and just want him to be happy.

Gossip Girl

I actually watched this when it was on TV but a while ago decided I wanted to watch them all over again. I think its such a great coming of age program and the fashion is amazing!! Of course who doesn't love the whole Chuck and Blair love story. Just an overall amazing program.

Pretty Little Liars

I can't remember why I decided to watch this but I was intrigued as it seems to be a favourite among a lot off bloggers and Youtubers. It is so good and there are so many twists and turns, I find you suspect everyone of being A at least once. I am so looking forward to the new Season as it is supposed to be the Summer of Answers, I'm sure there will be more twists and turns.

I hope you enjoyed this post!!

Do you have any favourites?

See You Soon!!

InstaLately #7

I didn't really do much this week other than go shopping with Mum on Wednesday and then mostly chilled out the rest of the week in between work.

Loving - Butterkist Toffee Popcorn!! As you can see I did Instagram this and I did eat the whole bag while watching a film, ooppss!! Supposed to be trying to keep healthy!!

Fashion - I am going shopping next week and have seen so many new clothes I'd like to try and some of my usual styles I can't wait to get. There will be a nice haul post going up once I've been.

Hope you enjoy this weeks instalment!!

Matalan & Superdrug Haul

Friday, 1 May 2015

Hey Guys!!

My Mum invited me out shopping on Wednesday with my sisters and grandparents, so of course I said yeah why not!!

Me and Chloe first went into Superdrug and Wilkinsons where I picked up some make up items and also some baking items.

So in Wilkinsons I got a Letter Press Set to help me expand with my baking and my cupcakes, I'm so looking forward to using them. I also got some more cupcake cases and they also came with little toppers. You can get both items HERE and HERE.

In Superdrug I did splurge a little on the make up front. I have been wanting to try out a few more pallets and of course I always use MUA, I do want to try some other make up though soon. I picked up these three pallets that I don't have yet, these are Spring Break, Dusk til Dawn and Glitterball. I can't wait to try these out. You can get each of these pallets HERE, HERE and HERE. I also picked up some Micellar Water as I have seen a lot of people use it from different brands and thought why not give it a go. You can get this HERE. The make up bag was free as they have a promotional offer across make up in store.

I picked up this skirt as I wanted something different to my usual black skirts that I get. The material I feel is the scuba material, that's what it feels like anyway. I am not 100% on whether I will keep it as its not my usual style I go for.

I have been interested in getting wedged trainers for a while but haven't found a nice pair that is just neutral. I then came across these and tried them on in store as I wasn't sure whether I would get them or not. I actually got these in a size 3 which is not my usual size, I can't wait to wear these properly.

I ended up also buying these, I am slightly obsessed with shoes, I can't tell you how many I actually own. I like these as they are slightly cowboy styled but are suede and I love the little heel to them. I also can't wait to style some outfits with them and show you some outfit posts.

I love kimonos and I thought this one was perfect to go with my others. This one is extra long and is on trend with the tassels, very festival/boho I think :) I think this will go perfect with wedges or heels and is perfect for the Summer.

I also love very much night shirts. This is just a normal cotton shirt and will be lovely cool if the hot weather comes back. Its just such a nice alternative to a night dress or short pyjamas.

Unfortunatley the items I bought from Matalan I can't link as we only have a clearance store not a proper store.

I hope you enjoyed this little post!!

See You Soon!!
