Courteeners. Primark dress.

So this Friday, me and my best friend, Becky, were invited to the courteeners gig in Manchester. Boy, oh boy was it hectic.

We managed to worm our way into VIP, but decided we'd rather be in the thick of it and get trampled on. Was the best decision, EVER!

We were supposed to be enjoying the sub and having a night in, maybe have a BBQ but we are so glad that those plans changed. I had tried to get tickets for a while but had no luck, so to be invited, with free tickets and end up in VIP. Was amazing!!

I am a massive fan of the courteeners (I thinks it because they're from Manchester too) I but Becky however, is not. I don't know how this is possible!

So here are some of the pictures we took whilst we were there..

My dress and cardigan are from Primark and my shoes are converse..

Stay safe guys.. Xxxx

Not Fashion related. SHE'S HERE!!!!

She's here.

After 37 weeks of waiting and panicking my beautiful god daughter has arrived. I am so overly happy.. I've actually spent the whole day crying with happiness.

Such a precious day, Kerriann, if and when you read this, I love you and Adam the whole world and baby Maya, is going to be an absolute stunner. you've done well. I couldn't have hoped for anything better for the both of you.

Much love.

GARNIER - Moisture Match

Hello Everyone! :D Hope June was a lovely month for you :)

So this month I have chosen to do a review of the new Garnier Moisture Match.
Garnier have brought out 5 new 24hr moisturisers for different skin types, they have 'Tailor Made' this 5 moisturisers so that there is one for each skin type.

As you can see I went for the 'Yellow' one which is for normal to dry skin, which is what my skin type is. The yellow one is 'protect and glow' which is perfect for me because I sometime feel that my face is quite dull.

It's a really light-weight and it smells amazing.
However, it isn't fast absorbing, even though it says it is on the packaging, which was disappointing because it't not a product that can easily be applied as you're heading out the door, if you're having a makeup free day.

Main points. 
SPF 20 - So no need to worry about the sun. I always wear sun cream or an equivalent like this.
Suitable for sensitive skin - I have horribly sensitive skin and this has been great :)

I've been using this product for about 3 weeks and I have to say, my face has began glowing, I always worry when products say that they help to  'glow' because I always worry it will make my face oily and not glow-y. But I was happily surprised with this.

Thanks Guys :D

It's Wednesday!

I've recently finished uni for summer so it's work, work, work! This makes me sad. However, me and my best friend, Rebecca, are planning a holiday for late summer, just for a chill before we go back in September. We're not sure as to where we want to go yet, either somewhere warm or a city break. That would make it 3 holidays in one year. I'm happy with that. Also this summer I'm trying to get a car, I've been driving or at least I've had my licence for 6 months and haven't driven since my pass day. Meaning that I now need a car. Hopefully my parents will contribute.

I've recently been ill and it's still not gone, and being ill makes me think of Christmas, bit early to get excited? I think not. Also this summer, my friends baby is due, my god daughter, baby Maya. Any ideas what Ivan get her?

Another thing, my business cards have come, feeling professional now :)

Short blog to keep you all update, don't forget to get to get your friends to follow me :) would mean the world, plus, I've a giveaway coming!


Stay safe guys.

What May has brought.

I've had the craziest couple of weeks.

I've finally finished uni for the summer which makes me more happy then I have ever been! :)

I bet you're all wondering what I've been up too.
We'll I literally finished uni by submitting my final piece of coursework about 20 minutes before me and Matthew headed off to Paris for the weekend.

It was perfect. We went for our 5 year anniversary (I hate that word, I feel that can only been used when you're married). But we stayed just outside the centre and get the Met to Paris everyday. I have never, ever walked so much in my life. It was absolutely perfect, we did all the sights and had a lovely time.  

 Matt showing off his lovely photography skills..

 This is the padlock bridge. It was so precious. I fell in love.. Obviously Matthew and I put a lock on :)

View from the bottom of the tower.. we went to the very top which considering matthew has a fear of heights I was so proud of him for doing that. In the rain I might add.

After the weekend in Paris we had a gig booked, so Matthew and I went to this gig with about 7 of our friends, it was very fun. It was for a band called the Skints. it was reggae music and  it was fantastic. The support were great as well, I actually bought a T-shirt of the support. they were called 'Current Swell'.. check them out!

After the gig was a boring week at work.
However, Yesterday was my Best Friend, Kerriann's Baby shower. Which me and the other god Mothers thought would be a nice idea. Maya ( My future god-daughter) has been absolutely spoilt. I cannot wait to meet her.

This is a picture of me, the mum-to-be and the other two god mothers.

The fun hasn't stopped yet. I have such a crazy month of June planned and I cannot wait!! :)

I'll keep you informed, and I will have a haul coming soon.. :)

Stay Safe...

This is what I bought today

Closer look. 
This dress is absolutely beautiful. Its a denim copy, with white polka dots. Will be perfect with a         pair of nude flats.

Jeans £9
 Light blue jeans, they're very soft and almost feel like you're wearing leggings. Perfect.
White flats with bow - £5
Black flowery flats - £4 

  I'm wearing the white ones today :)

Socks £1.50
  I love socks. I love to have warm feet which is never usually the case so I usually buy socks when ever I go shopping. :)

Christening outfit. Under £50

This weekend was a highly anticipated weekend for my family. My nephew turned 2 and on the same day we held his Christening.
My nephew, Joshua was spoilt rotten as was expected and we had a lovely day.

I challenged myself to get an outfit under £50 and get it from Primark. I DID IT!
I had loads of compliments about it and how classy I looked.

Jacket £19, Vest top £2.50, Pants £11, Shoes £16- Total, £48.50.

Closer look

Micky came to the christening. This is my Uncle.

Man of the moment, Joshua. 

Matthew and myself :) 

With my outfit, I thought and was right, that everyone would be wearing dresses. However, it wasn't the nicest of weather and I wanted to look a bit different. So I went for the on trend monochrome situation. I loved my outfit. Matthew was asked to be the god father of Joshua which made the day even more special. We loved every second of it. 

So go and grab a bargain at Primark and get yourself an outfit for under £50!!! 

Stay safe guys xxx
