Secret Santa!

Hey Everyone!!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas! ... A month or so ago Sabrina posted a blog & tweeted about taking part in a Secret Santa. I was well up for that .... So basically that meant you buy a gift for around £10 then send it to another person that was also taking part. Sabrina picked who was sending to who & then emailed our details out so we could send our presents off.
Ellie was the person that I was sending my present to - here's her blog link ~> (if you're reading this Ellie... I hope you liked your stuff! xx)
So a week or two later I got a little brown envelope through the letterbox ........It was my secret santa present! YAY!!
I opened it straight away! ..naughty I know but I couldnt wait till Christmas! hehe
The presents I received were from Abbie ~>
& here is what I got!!...
  • BarryM nail paint in Vivid Purple (161)
  • The Body Shop strawberry lip balm
  • glitter eye shadow in Night Sky by 17
  • black glitter liquid eye liner by Collection 2000
  • Natural Collection Lipstick in Sorbet
  • Set of earrings by Freedom at Topshop
Abbie, Thank You so much.. I lved all of it! Thanks for the xmas card too, & for the little message - it was only the other day that I realised that you had written on the other side of the card too ...duhh! lol

Sabrina, thanks for the great idea, Hope to do this again next year cos it was fun! xx

My project 20 Pan is going good, Have a video to upload when my internet gets sorted & I did mean to make regular updates on here about it ....but ummm... I forgot! =P
Ive used up 9 products, just 11 more to go! yay!! - I dont know who's idea this 'Project 10 pan' malarky was but what on earth were they thinking?!! ..... its killing me!! lol

Oh..& it was my birthday yesterday! yay!! =D

In's & Out's


  • Rain... grrr, I dont normally mind any kind of weather if im just out walking the dogs, but when I have to go to college or shopping when its pouring down... it does my head in! Your innocently stood at the bus stop when a huge lorry drives past & soaks you to the bone.... great! And even more annoying when its windy, it blows your brolly inside out! grrrr. :)

  • Iced tea ..yuk! I just cant get to grips with cold tea... or coffee for that matter, I feel these should be drank hot with a biscuit to dunk!, they only really go well in a hot country by a pool! ..not for rainy old England!
  • Lush's Squeaky Green shampoo bar, or just the shampoo bars in general! =/ - they take forever to use, I get so bored of them! I suppose for nearly £5.00 you want it to last to get you £££ worth but I just get bored of using the same thing.. thumbs down for these!

  • X Factor..sorry x factor fans but its just doing my head in this year, I think its the worst yet or maybe Im just not into it any more. Ive only seen a few episodes & that was just to see my future husband Simon Cowell! ;)

  • Myspace! ..I used to like it then I realised nothing much happens on there, if you're into adding ur own songs then great but it doesnt come close to Twitter & Youtube!

..& Im sure there is a lot more for me to moan about too but I'll stick to five for now! I might even make this a monthly thing as I change my mind that often! Well thats it for now, just want to get this done as I have no Youtube videos to upload this week. Ok, Byeee <333

In's and Out's


  • My little kitty Dexter, the pic on the left was in June when we got him & the right pic is now! ..look how much he's grown! He's such a cutie & so affectionate, he's gorgeous & cute! ..untill the devil side of him comes out! lol

  • Medium, I ♥ this tv series, its great! I watch it every week without fail, I have watched every single episode. ...& Im just wondering, can anyone remember Allison when she was in Nightmare on Elm Street when she was 17? I remember the part where she turns the tap on & the tap grabs her hand! =O

  • Hot chocolate, I love these with lots of marshmallows or whipped cream on top!... there are more calories in it than id like to remember but its a great comfort on a chilly night!
  • Greggs! - I know I shouldnt but I just can't resist pastry! I love a Greggs sausage roll or a cheese & onion pasty, they are just too yummy to resist!

...the 'Out's' will be posted in my next blog!.. its almost midnight now so Goodnight everyone! <3

Project 20 Pan!

Yeah.. so the time has come where I have HAD to make myself jump on the bandwagon with the project 10 pan thing, and ..cos I have SOO much stuff, I decided to make it Project 20 Pan!
I have enough things to use up to make it '50 pan' but thats just silly! haha, It would take me forever to use up 50 products! Im going to film a video about this for Youtube, I did mean to do that this week but due to CRAZY amounts of college work, I never got round to it, but I will this week!
So I started with it last Monday (9th) & have been trying to use the same things every day so they run out first, but alot of my products are pretty new so it might take a little while! I'm hoping to get at least half way through the 'P 20 pan' by Christmas!
My Project 20 Pan Rules:
  • Lush purchases are NOT included of course! hahaha, no ..just kidding, I'll only be buying things like toners, hair treatments etc but only if I dont have replacements!
  • All my beauty/cosmetic items are included in the P '20' pan items - like make-up, deodorants, shampoos, Lush products etc
  • No more hauls from me untill the P 20 Pan is finished, then I can do a few hauls to stock up on things I need and then I will start the P 20 Pan again!! .... eek! =/
  • and the last rule is.... I can change these rules at any time! haha ;)
I have a few products that I think will be used by next week & they are one of my Sanex deodorants & my Lush T'eo deodorant bar, my Pantene shampoo, maybe some hairspray? & probably a few Lush Products!

Ok, so thats it for now, just wanted to get this down somewhere seen as though I didnt have time for a video this week. I'll probably do a weekly blog update on this & maybe a 2 weekly vlog for YouTube!

Hello! :)
Last week I watched a few S&G review vids on YouTube & and PipsyPopsy26's blog post on their items, so I thought Id jump on the bandwagon as well !
So on Tuesday after college, I had 15 mins to spare while waiting for the bus, so I went into Boots & headed straight for the Soap & Glory shelf! I didnt have a long time to spend looking at each product so I was glad to find a little gift set hiding on the bottom shelf! I didnt really check what was in it, I just grabbed it, paid & raced for the bus!
The gift set cost £12 & in it I got a pot of Flake Away body scrub, body butter, moisturising mist, shower gel & a hair mask. The sizes are a little bigger than the usual travel size bottles. Im glad I found this set because I didnt really want the big tubs because it would take me forever to use them up & I wouldnt want to betray my one love 'Lush' :) so these little diddy bottles were just right! The shower gel & the hair mask I dont need so wont be using, therefore I will be adding those to my contest prizes!
I like the moisturising mist because its a thin mixture & not at all oily! The body scrub looks ok but Im not really a fan of the scent! & I am pleasantly suprised with the body butter, I expected it to have the texture of the body shops b/butter which I find a little greasy, but the S&G is more like a lotion, v.nice! The packaging is nice & pretty & the pots/bottles are cute but right now, thats the only thing Im really liking about it, I dont dislike the products but I was a little disappointed with the scent! I think its peachy or something (which I dont like!) & they all smell exactly the same! Its early days I suppose & I have only just started to use these products so I'll give them a go & a review will come soon! :)
I am eager to try the wipes & there is also a gift set with 3 body sprays in, which I have not smelt yet but I think Im gonna get them anyway! =D so I'll add those in with the review too!
Ok, thats it for now..I have college work I should be doing!
Thanks for reading!

Todays Lush Shower

Saturdays are my Lush days! =D ~ I use Lush throughout the week to but have to hurry, on a weekend I can stay in the shower for as long as I want & get the best from my Lush goodies!
Here is what I used today~
*New Shampoo Bar.
*Jungle Solid Conditioner
*Yummy Yummy Yummy
*Ocean Salt
*Cosmic Lad

I use the New shampoo bar everytime I wash my hair, It makes it so soft & shiny & it lasts forever! Then if Im not using my leave-in conditioner, I will use Jungle - which I did today! it smells of plants & grass! lol but is really nourishing & you can smell the scent right up untill you wash your hair again!
I love Ocean Salt, its quite an abrasive cleanser, so I wouldnt recommend it for sensitive skin.. just in case! :) - I love how soft it leaves my face, & its good for bums too like Buffy (but use a different tub to the 1 you use for ur face! lol)
I always use 2 body washes, one to clean my skin & the other to moisturise & scent. So today I used Dreamwash to clean & then Yummy Yummy Yummy right before Im about to get out of the shower,that way ..because the heat has opened up your pores, your skin takes in all the goodness from the product & you get better results.
Then after Im out, I apply my moisturiser - Cosmic Lad ...yeah, I think it is meant for men, but because I dont have any particular skin type.. this one suits my skin best. All the others I have tried contain too much cocoa butter & stuff, its ends up being too greasy & breaks me out! I have found this to be ok for now, so Im gonna stick with it!
...& thats it for Lush products today!

Thanks for reading! ...have a great saturday night!

It got there... finally! =D

Yay! Michelle got my package finally!! =D

Ok, so back in June/July, after watching lots of swap videos on youtube..I decided I wanted to send someone something, but couldnt decide who...untill I saw some tweets from Michelle (makeupbynumbers) about her not recieving her Summer Swap parcel. So I messaged her & was very happy when she accepted my offer & gave me her details!
The package was in the post 2 days later!.. That was August 9th (I think?) so yeah... she only just got it September 18th.... there's a reason for that! - I had to post the package by surface mail, because the box weighed so much, it would have cost me £30 ($54) to have the package delivered within a week! ...I was like 'whaaattt?!' lol - I could have made another package up for that price! lol - so I had to choose surface mail! =/
I'd thought about the package a few times, wondering where abouts it was, if it was still in one piece, hoping that nonody had dropped it, then yesterday I saw Michelle had tweeted me saying she was going to pick the package up! I was like 'Yaaayy!' lol more excited than michelle! lol - but even more happy that it had finally got to her safely & nothing had broken! Phew!!
So when I logged on youtube this morning, I saw Michelle had made a video about it,which was nice of her.(there should be a video link nr the title!)

So Im really glad that she liked the stuff I sent her & I hope to do this again soon! - It will probably be after my 500 subs contest (if that ever comes haha)
So yeah, that was my good deed for the month..gonna be mean from now on! haha =P

Ok, Its 1am now - Goodnight!

Product of the week!! ♥

Im loving this Aussie leave-in conditioner right now, I only bought it 2 weeks ago and I have already noticed a huge difference to the texture of my hair! Its really soft & shiny. I have also noticed that I can go nearly 2 days without washing my hair & it doesnt look greasy at all!! I bought it from Boots & it cost about £3.49 I think! ...well worth it!! 4/5! =)

Friday, 18 September 2009

bye for now!
