Lush Cosmetics | Think Pink

Image
My little girl picked the bath bomb Think Pink as she thought it was pretty. she went for the one with blue flowers on which we had to dig for.
this bath bomb is quite small in size but the smell certainly makes up for that, to me it just smells like a Lush shop in just that one small bath bomb, The smell was so strong that it even made my room smell pretty.
The moment you drop it into the the water the fizzing starts immediately and making the bath a beautiful subtle pink colour. It also had little tiny hearts that came out very quickly and floated rounf the whole bath. 

Her bath water was all pink with little tiny hearts in which made her bath look so pretty and girly, she also loved to try and fish the hearts out which kept her occupied for a long time. I was actually quite jealous of her bath as it was just the perfect pink haven to relax in.
RRP £2.65

I would certainly buy this again, even for me and it just smelt amazing and is so good for the price.

New theme to my blog

Image
As of October I am going to be changing the style of my blog, I am really not happy with the way it is lr the way my pictures look.

My thoughts as of October are to keep the posts the same but with bright photos and a change in color on my blog. 
I just feel that my pictures are so dark and not appealing so keep and eye out for the new look at the beginning of October.

Lillys third birthday in pictures | 14th Septmeber

Image
Monday was a wonderful day of celebration when our little girl turned 3. I thought that I would share a few pictures to you all.
We were meant to be taking a family trip but the weather was completely against us so we let her play with all her new toys in the morning. 
She woke up at 6:20 and was full of it from then on. We went into the frontroom to open her presents at about 9am, she was loving it. Ripping the paper off and seeing her new toys that she had to play with.
In the after noon we took a trip over to Nanny's and Grandads where she had more presents to open, a huge '3' balloon and we did her birthday cake after lunch. Daddy had brought a '3' sparkler and we put two normal candles on too. This year she actually managed to blow her candles out, last year the wind did it for her lol.
After her cake we spent some more time playing and then decided to come home again. She fell asleep on the way home but when she woke she had more energy to play with her toys…

First day of Nursery

Image
This post really wants to make me cry knowing that my little girl is growing up and making her own adventures now.
Yesterday was my little girls first settle in day at nursery and I was so proud how she did. Lilly looked so smart in her uniform and couldn't wait to get going when she was dressed.

We left at 8 to get the bus down because the weather was awful, windy and raining so hopefully Thursday is better so I can do a full school run walking. 
We arrived and I found her peg to put her bag and coat on, then watched her toddle off to play. I said goodbye to her and gave her a cuddle then left her to it.

I felt absolutely lost without when walking back to the bus stop and it felt so strange to step on a bus and being able to choose my own seat.
When I got back, I couldn't settle at all, I kept clock watching. I managed to get all the housework done and sti have an hour to wait.
When I went to pick her us I was so nervous bit she had had a lovely day of splashing in puddles, …

Happy 3rd birthday | Mummy Monday

Image
I cannot believe that my little girl is going to be three years old. I see her grow and change every day but can't believe that three years have passed since I gave birth to her.
Three years today was the most surreal day of my life, starting a new chapter, not only for me and but for me and Liam as a couple. 
She is the best thing that happened to us and I am so thankful that we have a beautiful, clever little girl who knows how to make us smile and feel better with her quirky personality.
I have watched her grow into this little girl who wants to explore and learn in any way she can, she knows how to push our limits and winds us up like no tomorrow but I wouldn't change her for the world.

To Our Lilly,
We wish you a very happy birthday,  You have made our life so fun and unpredictable, you have an amazing personality and you make me laugh and and smile so much every day, You have so many amazing adventures coming along and I know that you are going stride through without a …

My week in pictures | 7th - 13th September

Image
A very eventful week for me to share. As you may have read I passed my theory test on Monday. I was so happy yet so surprised. 

After I passed my test I met with Lilly's Nanny and grandad as they looked after her. We then went down the park together. I found this tree quite fascinating the way the trunk twisted and the branches grew out in sections.

Look at this little princess, I seriously cannot believe she turns three tomorrow. She is still not asleep but I think its because she is excited for the next couple of days. I can see me being an emotional wreck lol.

Lastly I wanted to share my birthday present from my mother in law, she knows me way to well. A big bundle of Yankee candle samplers and two cute little jars for them too. I only picked then up yesterday, hence the picture in today's blog.

I hope you enjoy these posts, I am so excited for the coming week but as I said I know I am going to be an emotional wreck.

Lush Cosmetics | The Experimenter

Image
The best bath bomb by far. 
As you may know I recently got The experimenter which I was slightly reluctant as I had heard that it turns you water Greg, which wasn't true with mine luckily.

The bathbomb is a 3d hexagonal shape with a incense stick scent to it. The bath bomb has five different colours, purple, pink, blue, cream and gold. 
When you put the bathbomb into the water it shoots colours in every direction creating a beautiful rainbow in the bath. After the colours have all mixed together I got a beautiful deep purple coloured bath full of glitter. 
The smell is so beautiful and lingers through the whole bath time, it is such a relaxing smell and completes the who event.
I was very reluctant to buy this at first as I heard that it made your bath water grey but I am so glad that I did pick it up.
RRP £3.95

Mummy and daughter Outfit | Princess

Image
I haven't posted an outfit post in a long time so I thought I would share our outfits from yesterday. 

I was wearing a primark blue T-shirt and a primark white vest underneath. I love this blue top, it is so comfy and seems to really suit me. I also wore blue Tesco skinny jeans, I love my skinny jeans as they make my legs look so much better than they actually are lol.
Lilly was wearing a cute floral from TU at Sainsbury's and a pair of blue jeggings from Nutmeg at Morrison's. She also had her Belle princess dress on which she wore when we went to the shops too, bless her. Ibgotbher dress from Argos.

I am in love with this outfit for me as it is so comfy and quite flattering. Lilly looks adorable in her princess dress and love the way she likes to dress up now.
Do you have a go to outfit? Or does your little one have a favourite dress up costume they like to wear

Birthday goodies | My Presents

Image
So on Saturday I had a birthday and was completely spoilt. I thought that I would share with you lovely people what I got.

My other half didn't know what to get me at all, I am so difficult to buy for as I hate asking for things and never feel like I need anything lol.
So Liam took me shopping for a few bits, I ended up in primark for some clothes and in Lush Cosmetics for some bath bombs. I picked up Intergalactic, The experimenter and frozen. 
I also brought myself Sprinkle of Glitters diary with some money that I was given, I still have some of that to spend too.
My Mum and Dad got me a handbag which I needed actually as the lining of my other bag was coming out and they also got me a Zoella Beauty make up bag with guinea pigs on the front, I asked for this a while back when out shopping with them.
I have one more present to pick up yet but I have been truely spoilt this year with some really useful gifts.
In no way am I trying to boast, I just wanted to share with you.

I PASSED | My theory test

Image
I passed my theory test :)


I am so happy to share with you all that I have passed my theory test today :) 
This was the first time that I have sat this test and honestly thought I had failed, I left the room with quite a heavy heart.
The hazard perception was the bit that worried me but it turns out I didnt do that bad with it.
I got 48 out of 50 on the multiple choice and 55 out of 75 on the hazard perception.
I am so happy and has just added to my amazing birthday weekend :)

My week in pictures | 31st Aug - 6th Sept

Image
Another week has passed and I am another year older lol. It was my birthday yesterday and was truely spoilt :) I feel very lucky.
Last Monday me and Lilly played with her duplo and made a really cool island for Jake and Peter from Jake and the Neverland pirates, We then went on to play for a bit finding the treasure and fighting off the crocodile.
After she also made a chicken out if duplo which was amazing.

During the week we went out and had icecream, two scoops of chocolate and a scoop of toffee. Lilly was so small in the chair that she actually sat on the table at the end to reach the bbotto, bless her. We ended up sharing as there was a lot of ice cream there for her to eat. 

As I said at the beginning it was my birthday yesterday and I was spoilt but everyone. Liam didn't know what to get me so he took me shopping for a few bits, I got some lush bathbombs and some clothes from Primark too, and the sprinkle of glitter 2016 diary. We then stopped at my mum and dads and they b…

Nursery Haul | Family Friday

Image
In about two weeks my baby girl will be starting nursery so I thought I would share all the bits that I have got for her to start nursery.
Firstly is her uniform including polo shirts, pinafore, skirt, jumper and cardigans with logo's and other little bits. We also picked up so plimsolls for school shies as I could not find shoes in her size.

I have also got her a backpack, lunchbox and beaker. She won't be needing her lunchbox at the moment as she will be doing mornings but it only cost £2. I have also sticked up on snack bits for Lillys backpack for after nursery.

Lastly I have picked up extra calpol and tixylix as I know everything will be thrown at her when she first starts. And I also picked up a nit comb so I am prepared for pretty much any situation.
I still cannot believe I will have a 3 year old nursery child soon.

August Favourites

Image
It's that time of the month where I tell you about my monthly favourites. 

I have a wide array of products this month from make up to candles to toiletries. 
Charlie Enchant
This has been my go to scent, It was on offer in Superdrug late last month and wanted to try a new scent in the Charlie range. This smell very sweet with hints of vanilla in. A brilliant summer scent that covers very well and lasts for a long time.
Lush New Charity Pot
When last in Lush I was offered a New charity pot hand and body lotion for a pound. The lotion smells amazing, like a Fry's turkish delight chocolate bar. The lotion works so well, and leaves mt skin feeling so soft, you don't need a lot either. The one draw back is that it takes a while to absorb.
Yankee Candle Vanilla Cupcake Sampler 
I found my perfect sampler from yankee candle, in the scent vanilla cupcake. Omg, this scent is sooooo amazing, so sweet and smells like you are baking so many cakes. I have this in my bedroom and it fills …
