Birthday Post

''Happy Birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday dear me, happy birthday to me!''
Hi everyone, It was my birthday yesterday and I want to show you all the lovely goodies I received! I had an awesome birthday and I just want to say a big thank you to my mumma for all the presents and also to my family and friends :) also to anyone who said happy birthday to me!
I received a gorgeous new coat, that I'm sure alot of you will have seen. Its the 'khaki fur hooded parka' from Matalan and I LOVE IT. Its so warm and snugly and looks great on! Absolutely perfect for winter. (Pinched the photo from the website, as I haven't took one of me wearing it yet!) don't you just love it?
 I got lots of other equally lovely things; all of which I'm delighted with! There are a few other bits that aren't photographed such as my One Direction ticket from holly :) and I got some money as well that I'll use next week when I go shopping in Derby, when I visit my sister at uni.

♥ The above 3 pictures are items from my friend May ♥

 ♥ These were from Hannah, my sister ♥

♥ all of these, including my coat, were from mumma bear ♥

♥ These things were from Holly. She also got me the concert ticket and some other little personal things that involve things we have done together as friends.. which are super cute! ♥
So, as you can see, I got some gorgeous things and also had a great birthday :)

catching up

Hi everyone, sorry about not posting for a while but the laptop charger was broke so I wasn't able to post :( but luckily the new one came yesterday so I'm back! yay!

Firstly just a couple of shots from my bowling trip last week with Indigo, Phoebe, Phoenix and family friend, Lynn. It was the first time the kids have been bowling and they loved it! Phoenix won overall and was extremely please with himself! hahaha :)

mine and indigo's feet in the yucky bowling shoes. This was the only part that indigo didn't like!

Phoenix taking his winning turn.


The almost final score board :)
Also, I'm doing cooking at school at the moment and last week on Wednesday I made Sweet and Sour chicken with rice from scratch, the kids loved it! which was quite unusual as they aren't usually open to trying new foods :) I'm making bread next week so hopefully that goes down just as well!

I also got a reply to my letter that I sent a while ago; from Rachel (my friend in Wales) It was such a cute letter and inside were 2 more friendship bracelets! aw!

Finally, My sister Zenobia came home for a couple of days (visiting from uni) she brought gifts with her and look what I got! MY FAVOURITE! Wonka Nerds :)

I'll be doing a post on Tuesday as it's mumma & dadda bears 25th wedding anniversary. We're having a meal to celebrate and I'll show what I've made for her!!!
Hope you've all had a nice weekend :)

Hello lovelies,

I'm back again with another little blog post and as some of you may know today is 'Worldwide Suicide Prevention Day'. This day is specially dedicated to help raise awareness to those that self harm and also those that have committed suicide. Everyday millions of people self harm all around the world and this day is to give them attention and show them that they are not alone.

One of the simplest events that many people take place in is to wear something yellow and write 'love' across the wrist to show support. I myself took part...

Yesterday I went into town in search of a new bag; I not only found one but I also found a few other nifty bargains! My shopping trip came to no more than £25 including the money I forked out for a tasty treat of Millie's white choc chip cookies, yum!

Brown satchel bag: £9, Super soft skinny jeans: £11, Pretty floral notebook: £1.99, Colgate toothbrush: 50p (a real barg and I was in need of a new one too!) Yellow, green and blue floral belts: £1 for all 3 and I also purchased all my school stationary as well for under £4!

Presents, cake and a pamper party!

Hey everyone, yesterday it was my best friend Holly's birthday! She had a wonderful day and I just wanted to share what we did to celebrate it..

Firstly, I popped into Holly's to take round her presents. She loved them which I'm very please about! She especially like the drawing my sister Hannah drew for her of myself and holly :) whilst I was there a parcel arrived for Holly, it was from choccywoccydoodah and it was the most yummiest looking chocolate kitty! I think Holly REALLY liked this present!!!

Also Holly had a pamper party for her birthday in Hinckley at forever beauty (her sister Jades beauty place! It's lovely there and I recommend that you check out her facebook page here!) We had manicures to fish pedicures to face masks and a few other wonderful things..

It was a great night and I think holly really enjoyed it because I know I did! :)

Curly Girl Talk & Free Samples

Hey everyone!

Lately I've been trying out new ways to maximise my curls, as I'm a curly girl at heart. I've learnt to embrace my curls after many years of straightening and damage and I now love having curly hair! It's just so easy styling and takes little effort to get it looking right. Although, not everyday is a good hair day.. as having curly hair can sometimes leave me just wanting to cut it all off and longing to have naturally straight hair.

Since having embraced my natural curls last year, this site ( has become my new best friend! It has lots of little handy tips and tricks and hairstyles for curly hair and I LOVE IT! My hair type is somewhere between a 2c - 3a, which basically means I have quite thick hair that's a mixture of waves and curls.

I've recently been looking for a way to keep my curls overnight as they can sometimes become squashed and frizzy after I've slept on them. That's when I discovered a method called 'plopping (aka plunking)' I tried this method out yesterday when I washed my hair and its absolutely brilliant!!! My hair was SO curly when I took it out of the plop this morning and it took 2 minutes for me to style rather than the usual 15 (spent revitalising the curls and adding volume) I didn't need to do anything and my hair was ready to go, go, go! If you'd like to try plopping then you can find out how to do it here :)

Moving on from the subject of hair, I received two free samples in the post this morning. Firstly, maybelline dream fresh bb cream which I have been wanting to try for a while now! And loreal paris lumi magique and nude magique which i stumbled upon after reading some reviews on the bb cream and just HAD to try! after all, who doesn't love getting freebies?
