So I haven't posted in a few days & that is because I have been really poorly. Had that awful cold & cough thing. Honestly I have never coughed like it & am still coughing now. I gave up on sleep last night & resorted to watching countless episodes of Location Location Location on 4OD on my iPhone. Got to love Kirsty & Phill :) Made it a better night that trying to sleep was being anyway.
Well apart from being ill I also had a final law exam to contend with & revision when fun isn't great & neither is sitting an exam whilst coughing up your guts and your nose dribbling everywhere. Yep, what an attractive image -_-
I'm currently being a child & sat in bed wearing my glasses & watching good old children's classic Rosie & Jim. And I really am watching the old classics as the DVD I'm watching is from an old video. Couldn't bare to loose that part of childhood haha. I even have Rosie & Jim rag dolls, life size too, and they're awesome. They're made by the actual people who made the original dolls for the tv show so they are so authentic :) Sad but amazing!!! And I am ill so celebrating the fact I have them is currently allowed :)
Hopefully I'll be lots better soon & be able to get some decent products, do some reviews, hauls & more OOTD.

These are some BIG beauties

I have a product rave! This doesn't happen to me often as I switch up things all the time but after discovering these in August last year I can tell you now, I LOVE :)

And here are the items of my affection- the Body Shop shower gels. Now I love the massive pump bottle ones. They're 750ml each and they smell Devine!! You literally want to eat them. And the best thing about them? They last for ages! Literally! I discovered these when my friend got me the Moringa one for my birthday last August. I've used it every single day since then & it's now the following October and I've just finished the bottle!! Not even kidding!
This stuff is a little gem! Well big gem really.
Sad thing is I went into the Body Shop recently to purchase another one and they no longer stock the big bottles with the pump BUT (it's a good BUT though) you can still pick them up in body shop outlets! I got my two new ones from the Swindon Designer Outlet and they were 2 for £10.50. Bargain when you think that's like 2 years worth of shower gel!
My 2 new purchases were the strawberry one and it smells like heaven. If you've ever smelt the strawberry Body Shop body butter it's the exact same smell. Gorgeous!! The second one I got was the pink grapefruit and it is lush. It smells so refreshing and clean- a great one to get you up in the morning!!

They're awesome & if you can find them they are a definite good buy! They still sell all the shower gels but just not in the big pump bottles :)


Let's get this party started!

Wow! It has been officially AGES since I last posted here! Saying I have been busy is possibly a massive understatement but I should not use it as an excuse (but I kinda am anyway. Cheeeeky)
Life has been mental the past few months as Uni is coming to a close & I have to be a big girl now!
Dissertation is in!!!!
Ultra scary having to apply for proper jobs & act all profesh! Eeeee. I'm also super exited as I want to do something with my life now as I've spent so much of it in education. But on 25 May (this month & in 24 days time) my education is officially over. Scary stuff!! My degree will be done & the world will be my little gem.

Currently revising law!

But what to do now?! I'm applying for jobs and placements and internships and grad schemes and traineeships so much that they're coming out of my ears, but secretly I really want to travel and work in Australia for 3-6 months. I'm thinking going January :) but this means saving & currently with only a weekend job I will struggle immensely! Boooooo.

Any who, enough of the ramble ramble I need to do something constructive on this blogging scene, you get me ;) yes bruce (I so wrote bruv then, but auto correct changed it to Bruce. So much cooler :P)
I'm doing some shopping tomorrow to get away from law exam revision do may do a blog haul inc some bits I've bought within the last few weeks.
What'd we think about that? Is it goooood? Sparkly? Fantastico?
I hope so.
Keep your eyes peeled, and hearts open for some craaaaazy bargains!
