Social Gathering #1

This summer, I've decided I'm going to attend as many social events as I can. And each time I attend, I'm going to blog about it. So let's start of with the first social event of the summer, Steve's Hawaiian Party, last Saturday night.

It was an absolute success! So many of my close/good friends together in one area. Some of them I hadn't seen since Prom, so it was really nice. I drank so much that evening, the most I've ever drunk in my life.. Yet I didn't wake up with a hangover... wheeerry!
I do remember saying some twatish things to people, but ooopps, oh well.

In general, the party was just an absolute success & only one person threw up, so a very good 9/10!

My girls are the greatest

Lucy-Lu & I

Gregers & I

My gorgeous Tasha

A very drunken best friend

Benny Boy

Drunken Holz & Clo

I'm going to try and post as much as I can the next few days, as Monday I'm off to Cornwall with NCS, So I won't be able to blog whilst I'm away. It's a 4 week project, so I'll do a main post on it when I've come back on August 16th... I'll be able to post in the evenings & weekends of the 3rd & 4th week. So I'll be able to do my 'My Week Away Summer Essentials' on the 27/28th of this month.

Until next time,

Wish List

Everyone has their own little 'wish list' on products they would love to own, but yet don't currently have the money to afford. So here's a few things on my wishlist & I apologize for the use of stock photos...

Jack Wills Charcoal Gilet: I use to own a bodywarmer/gilet when I was younger & I was really sad when mine got thrown away. Then my friend had gotten a Jack Wills one as a present for her exam results & I absolutely adore it, so I just have to have my own.

Ray-Ban Ultra Aviator in Gold: Nearly everyone I've ever come in contact with either owns a pair of these, or wants a pair of these. I've needed a pair of decent sunglasses the last couple of years, as mine always get broken. So investing over £100 pounds for a pair of decent sunglasses, that I will get regular wear out of, seems fine.

Lauren Conrad 'Beauty': I absolutely idolize Lauren Conrad & I've been needing a book along these lines to add to my reading collection anyway. I've had my eye on this for a while, so now that I've been paid. I'm so purchasing this on Amazon.

Lauren Conrad 'Style': As previously mentioned, I've been needing something along these lines to read, so as it goes nice with her 'Beauty' book, I've decided I'm going to buy both, so neither of them will be lonely :)

Elizabeth Arden 'Eight Hour Nourishing Lip Balm': I've heard Tanya Burr talk about how good this is in quite a few of her YouTube videos, so I'm going to jump on the bandwagon and get one, especially as how £18 is quite reasonable for 14.8 ml.

M-A-C Lipstick in 'Saint Germain': Absolutely nearly every female beauty YouTuber has raved about one M-A-C lipstick or another. This intrigued me to have a look for myself & I found this colour and oh my god, it's so pretty.. literally, it's like to die for. I honestly cannot wait to purchase this ekkkkk!

Urban Decay 'Chill MakeUp Setting Spray': My makeup NEVER seems to stay in place for longer than 6 hours, which is so annoying as touching up makeup is a massive pain in the butt. I heard about this from a beauty YouTuber and nearly flipped out. Why have I never heard of this before!? So now, the next time I'm in town, I'm buying this bad boy.

Lush Homemade Cosmetics 'Popcorn Lip Scrub': I've seen people rave about Lush's bath products all over Instragram, being the nosey person that I am. I decided to snoop round Lush's website and I fell across Lip Scrubs. Now I've never used a Lip Scrub before in my life. So after reading the comments I've decided to add this to my wishlist, as I adore anything popcorny. I may also purchase the bubblegum one as well.

So there was a little look into my wishlist, if you have any recommendations for me, please leave a little comment below :) And again, I apologize for the use of stock photos.

Until next time,

Birthday Haul

Friday is my mum's birthday, so today I went out and got her a present from myself & 2 cards. Tomorrow I have to go out and get a present courtesy of my sister, as she has school. I'm also hoping to take her out for a birthday meal, but I haven't decided yet.
On my travels from Argos, to the way home. I decided to pop into the American Sweet Shop & Lloyds Pharmacy to treat myself from a few long, hard weekends at work; this is what I purchased:

Skin Perfection Studio Basics: Foundation & Concealer Brush: I'm in desperate need of a foundation brush. Yet everywhere I go, they're either ridiculously expensive, or out of stock grrrr! So when I saw this two in one for only £6.99, I just had to have it. eek. 

Collection 2000 Lock 'N Hold Lipgloss in 'Body Pop 1': I've been in need of a new lipgloss recently and when I was out the Collection stand, it was one of the first to catch my eye. The packaging is so cute & handbag size.

TRESemme Hairspray in 'Extra Hold': I rarely ever use hairspray, but on the odd chance I do, I always feel bad for using my mum's. So today when I saw it, I decided to buy it as it's a 100ml bottle, which is perfect for handbags and on the go.

V05 'Give Me Moisture' Shampoo: I have never in my life used a V05 hair product, so I'm looking forward to using this. Especially as it was only a £1 as well. Scooooooooooooore!

Simple Facial Toner: My sister always uses Simple products on her skin & they usually work quite well. Tanya Burr also mentioned Simple products in her 'How To Get Perfect Skin For School' video, so I absolutely had to have some sort of Simple product. It's also been absolutely ages since I've used a toner. Lets see how well this works.

The Original Fudge Brownie Cookie Dough Bites: I love American sweets; the second I saw these I had to buy it as I also love anything that has fudge brownie in it. Asdfghjkl, complete heaven.

Wonka Nerds in 'Wild Cherry & Watermelon': There was a massive hype at school with these a few months ago, but I never really got into it. So I saw them today & bought them. I've pretty much eaten the whole pack now. They were lovely and ridiculously flavoured, but other than that, I really don't understand why they had a massive hype like they did.

Extra Dessert Delights in 'Apple Pie': I had these at my friend's house a couple of years ago & oh my god, it was the tastiest piece of gum I have ever had. I ran home as fast as I could to ask mum if I could have some for my birthday, but she said no, so I got really upset ahaha. I just had to buy it when I saw them again. Apple Pie is definitely one of my favourite desserts mmmmm.

Until next time,
