Easter weekend

Happy Easter guys!! 
So what have you all been doing? Friday was a lovely chilled day with the family my sister plus fiancĂ© came over and so did the grandparents. I really wish we had better weather for the four days, it kind of sucks :( 
Saturday I shopped in the local city but I was pretty disappointed and came home almost empty handed. I guess my bank balance looks good for it though... Saving really doesn't help my shopping! I was hoping to pick up some new summer stuff or even an outfit for Sunday evening but I guess I'll have a rummage around my wardrobes to see if I find anything for the evening. 
Here's a little snap from walking the dog at the park... If you look close you'll see the ducks :p 
Enjoy the rest of your time off xoxo

I got excited when I found there's a limited edition out! I got my parcel today and was pleasantly surprised it's in a cute tin with the brush and makeup...even better it's with gold. Everyone who knows me, knows I LOVE gold, I can't live without it, so super happy to find this. 
I'm a big fan of BareMinerals, I've been trying to find a product I love more but I keep coming back to it each time. I'm just on the hunt for a good liquid foundation as my skins quite dry, oh and also a primer erghhh, I hate the end of the day and my makeups half gone :( 
I'll update you on my purchases, I'm sure Easter weekend will mean I'll be treating myself ;) xoxo 

P.s grab the limited edition collection on

Is it a green week?

I'm not sure why I've recently started wearing dresses and skirts to work, but it's defiantly expanded my work wardrobe which is always a plus! As my work is always cold I popped on a green jumper over my dress and accessorised with a studded black and gold belt. I suppose I like to add a bit of colour to my monochrome looks! 
I had to snap my photos fast this morning so I'm half asleep before I dash to work, oops. 
And it's finally the start to my weekend thanks to the bank holidays woohoo! Xoxo

April fools

Never even came into my mind that it's April fools day, I've been writing the date all morning but never even thought about it!! Dammit, but at least it means I've stayed safe this year from the tricks phew. 
I was in a bit of a hurry this morning so I grabbed my new grey skirt and my white sleeveless blouse but managed to add some pattern with my flower cardigan (not seen in photo, sorry:( !) and finished my look off with a splash of colour with a pink jacket. I hardly get to wear it so when the weathers a bit in between seasons for us here in England it's the perfect time to bring it out. But still on a dash to the shops on my lunch it was cold and windy, so probably not the greatest of choices!! Oops xxx

I seem to be an h&m girl today!! Xoxo

Green dream

Not quite feeling spring here yet, so still in the jumpers. Today's been crazy weather wise, hail, thunder, sunshine, wind and rain!

Tonight's bedtime routine

My three basic products before sleep...
I'm taking off my makeup with Garnier micellar cleansing water. I was a bit sceptical at first thinking how can a product that is cleansing water going to remove all my makeup? It comes in a large 400ml which states can be up to 200 uses, great! Amazingly it does manage to take off my makeup including my mascara, after several cotton wool pads later! (I must admit my normal routine is a flannel with a cleansing face wash so I cut out the buying and throwing all the cotton pads) 
Next I use my normal Nivea toner, it seems to grab all the remaining bits of makeup that my cleanser leaves behind, maybe I'm just not thorough enough the first time round but I just hate all the cotton pads I get through!! 
An added step I took was using my trusty Soap & Glory face mask, which refines your pores. It's a messy face mask which stays creamy but you can feel the magic working once applied and the blue beads have disappeared. I first brought this years ago and have been a fan ever since and would keep going back for more. Let's hope I wake up with perfect skin, we can only wish for ;p Xoxo

Puppy love

A night in with the girls and the puppies! What more could a girl ask for? 
Saturday nights shouldn't all be about going out drinking, I love girlie nights with takeout and tv (with the added bonus of all the updated gossip!) 
These two went nuts all night! Xoxo
