One more please?

I am a lucky girl of late. I never win anything but I seem to have won 2 giveaways these past few weeks. I was so excited.

One more would be lovely… everything comes in 3’s right? (kidding- kinda lol)

Anyway the first one was from Lil at a A Storm in a Teacup who sent me this lovely lot.
It came in Dior bag which was a nice touch, and I got

Nicolas Girls Aloud Lashes (which I really wanted)
The Divine Storm palette (jealous?)
2 Nails Inc. nail polishes in Piccadilly Circus and Shoreditch which are gorgeous pink colours (pics to follow when I have painted my nails)
A Victoria Jackson lip gloss
And a fortune fish.

The tail and head were moving- which means I’m in love (aww). Thankfully the bf did it too and his did the same (would have killed him otherwise lol)

Plus some artwork done by Lil! Its sooo pretty. The detail that has gone into it was amazing. My boyfriend said it was Nicola from Girls Aloud lol (forgive him Lil, he has a thing for her)
Anyway I’m going to treasure it because its lovely. You are one talented lady.

So thanks Lil!!!!

My next one arrived today from Em at Passion for Fashion. I came 2nd in her giveaway and I got the following goodies

Pretty Polly moisturising leg shimmer
Some crazy false eyelashes (get a load of these- bling much?)

Some cute plasters
Bath bombs
And some rock from Em’s trip to Blackpool

All in all its been a fab few weeks. So I’m waiting for my next one girls or else (I jest : ) )

Much love to you all and more posts to follow soon.

Honest Scrap

I have been rubbish at blogging lately; I just haven’t had time after I’ve read all your blog posts (which are more exciting then my own)

Anyway I wasn’t tagged but here is my honest scrap tag.

You have to tell your readers ten things about you they may not know, but that are true, then you have to tag ten people with the award.
Finally, let all the people you've given the award to know they have gotten it ( comment their blogs or somethings).

Don't forget to link back to the person who awarded you.

1. I moved to the seaside from Bradford when I was 11 and I know that my life would have been totally different if I had stayed there (I lived on a really rough estate)

2. I have been trying to lose weight for as long as I can remember. I used to go to dance school and always had a my little 8 year old belly hanging out and always felt huge compared to the other girls- this continued throughout school.

3. I worked in a hair salon for 8 years. I started when I was at school because I decided that’s what I wanted to do, but for some reason I went to 6th form and then uni and never did get trained properly. Now I wonder if I’d have been better off because my degree isn’t coming in useful lol

4. I make a lot of lists and never seem to cross anything off

5. I don’t wear like 70% of my wardrobe because I save it as a reward for myself for when I get to goal (despite the fact I may fit in them now- just not as well as when I get to goal)

6. I’m really organised and take charge of organising things

7. I ask tons of questions about things I don’t understand because I love to know new things

8. I’m totally obsessed with magazines! I collect glossies and have them going back to 1998

9. I barely ever go on nights out because I work in the evening, therefore no social life or chance to dress up : (

10. I’m allergic to nickel

I tag anyone who hasn’t done it but who wishes to : )

A total free for all- even for a cheap skate like me
They are having a huge makeup sale too.
Hurry Hurry

I'm thinking a huge shopping haul is coming your way...



Trust me, I could post pictures all night. Go take a look and let me know what you like.

Much love

Blog Award

This award is bestowed on to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to six bloggers who must choose six more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

I got my first Blog award from the lovely Em from Passion for Fashion. A fellow Yorkshire Lass who also shares my name AND who has the most amazing dresses ever! I love her blog. Thanks Em

So these are the 6 people i tag. (i assume i can't re- tag Em)

First of all the lovely Lil from A Storm In A Teacup. She has a great blog full of great pics and she adds her own unique touch to all her posts.

Alice from A Little Less Of Alice. I only found her blog a few weeks ago but she is amazing! She has lost over 100lbs!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, well done to her and she is now wearing a size 10. Inspiration if i ever saw it

Boot Sale Bargains

So on Sunday I had the urge to go to a car boot, with all this chat on blogger about the amazing finds, I had to pop to my local one to see what offerings the locals were… well offering!
I was really surprised. Of course there was some tat but I got a few bits that I was mega happy with! I dragged the bf out of bed too to come with me, and he even got a few bits. Result!

First of all we got Cluedo! Classic game which I didn’t own.. Until now. £1. Bargain. All the bits still there. That made our Sunday night enjoyable (we like board games)

I also got some DVDs- The Princess Diaries and The Princess Dairies 2- films I haven’t seen but I’m loving Anne Hathaway at the moment so I snapped them up for £1. I also got Popstars the Rivals- I will admit it was mainly so I could see Girls Aloud before stylists and teeth veneers and crowns. And to see Cheryl Cole in her natural glory. They were all pretty before but wow- stylists are amazing!!!
I had to admit I didn’t know any of the boys- what ever happened to the guy group??

I also got Vouge Covers. It has loads of the covers from the very first issue. Really interesting. Only £2.

I also got a Ped Egg- well because ya know…

My fave purchase was a Body Shop set. It was the Jasmine perfume box set. I was sooo happy because I love the smell of the Jasmine perfume. So I ask how much it is, expecting her to say about a tenner, seeing as it was new and I know for a fact at xmas they sold for £20. But she said £2! I pulled my best ‘poker face’ handed the money and ran away before she could change her mind. Then raved on at my bf how the body lotion alone was worth more than that and how I love this perfume and wear it all the time.

Amazing. I think I’m going to be going to more boot sales : )

I’m one happy lady

Did anyone else boot sale this weekend? Was the weather nice? It was soo hot up here but it didn’t distract me from bargains to be found.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend
