I love you, I love you, I love you,,,

So sorry for the lack of posts recently! My life has actually been a little bit hectic. I've even stopped using Twitter which I thought would never ever happen! Shocking. Thanks for sticking with my blog even though I've been neglecting it as of late but I promise, I'm turning it around now!

On Saturday, My Aunty got married as some of you might already know because of my panicking on Twitter about not finding a dress. EEEK! I managed to find a lovely one from Miss Selfridge though for only £33.

 I didn't actually get any full length pictures of me in the dress, mainly because the house was so hectic with everybody getting ready that I barely got a chance to look in a decent mirror! I do love the dress but because it kept falling down I had to pull it up loaaaads and it's actually ripped a bit just below my boobs. Bit gutted really but I can't complain too much.

Anyway, I'm gonna upload a few pictures of the big day now.

 These pictures really do not do the day justice at all! So sorry about my rubbishy iphone! Usually I can take amazing pictures but these are dreadful. Anyway, you can basically get the point. The first picture is my Aunty and now Uncle with both sets of parents, the next is my nervous Uncle to be waiting for the Bride at the registry office and the next is of me and my sister. Just cause I love posing and all that.

So that's my wedding Face of the Day! I hate how hot the day was although the sun was shining just because my makeup actually melted off. I wasn't impressed at all. The next is me and my bestest friend in the whole wide world drinking a bit of rose wine, love wine, especially when it's free wine. The next picture is of the hall, it looked so much prettier in real life! I wish you were all there to see it.

The first dance! Awww! It was to the song Lady - Kenny Rogers. I've never actually heard of it before this but they were both massively fond of it. My mum actually made that wedding cake. How good is that?! She did say it was a nightmare though and she's never ever making one again. She just can't handle the pressure. The next is of me and my Sister's best friend posing again.
You might want to look away now but these two were obviously feeling the romance...

YUCK! Anyway, I hope you enjoyed these photos! I will definitely get my giveaway up soon just waiting for a few more bits to arrive and then it'll be up and running! I can't wait. Thanks to everyone who follows my blog, I genuinely appreciate you all.

And we don't wanna hear, the real world passing by...

Hello Everyone! Today I thought I'd share something I've purchased recently that I'm absolutely lovin'. I saw on twitter that Jenny had mentioned Peacocks had some great bronzer and blushers in store at the moment for £1 each and of course, when I went into town on Saturday I just had to check them out!

I'm a massive snob when it comes to high street store's make up products except Topshop because I never find them to be any good at all. I was genuinely surprised when I opened these up and saw how lush the colours were though. I admit that they're not the most pigmented things in the world but for £1 I couldn't ask for much more! They were originally £3 and had I have seen them at that price I most definitely wouldn't have bought them even though it's still quite cheap! 

The first swatch was taken without flash and the second was with flash. They're so subtle but at the same time they are gorgeously glowing! I love coral at the moment so I'm really glad I picked the blusher up. I'm equally in love with the bronzer because bronzers are my most favourite cosmetics ever. 

Will you be popping into your local Peacocks and snapping these up?! Have any of you already got any of the Peacock's range of make up?!

it's too cold outside for angels to fly...

Hello my favourite people! I've realised that I haven't posted a week in pictures post for absolutely ages so thought I'd put one together now whilst i'm having a day off work. I've got a horrendous "summer" cold. I don't know why, when it's gorgeous outside! It baffles me completely. How are all of you?

This is a picture to prove just how nice the weather is at the moment. I snapped this in my garden on Thursday.

The first picture is such an obligatory car photo! I take them all the time as you can see. I had an apple and raspberry blended fruit juice from Starbucks. They're my favourite at the moment. Have you tried them? They're so fit.

I really don't think I suit red lipstick at all. I was just trying it out but I think it looks horrendous on me. What do you think?! Be honest! I think maybe it'd look better with a tan perhaps?

I love the picture of me with my little brother, even though he's not pulling the nicest face and he has snot down his nose which is quite attractive. I love fishtail plaits, I've been wearing them loads lately.

My mum is an animal freak and the school that she works in was giving away three gerbils so of course, she couldn't say no! Here's my little brother Finn posing with one of the gerbils. I'm terrified of them. He chased me around the house with it after and I was screaming my head off. Just looking at it makes me nervous!

The next picture is of me and my sister Kirsten after we'd finished work. My makeup has rubbed off a bit and I look awful but we rarely get a picture together so I thought I'd post this one. Plus, I know she reads my blog from time to time :)

LUSH - MRS WHIPPY! My god, my favourite all time bath product ever! I can still smell the vanilla/sweet scent on my skin now, 5 hours later. It makes me skin feel super soft too. This is definitely a must. It's so pink and pretty, totally girly!

Well, I haven't taken that many pictures this week because I've been feeling so rubbish with this cold/flu thing but I can't wait for next week because I'm going to take loads to make up for it. I promise!

As always, thanks for following! I'm on 231 (i think) now! That is a massive achievement. I'm thinking of doing a giveaway when I get to 300 just to say thank you.
