An Early Christmas Present

As an early Christmas present, my wonderful sister took me to see one of our all time favourite Artists, Mike Dignam, and yeah we got front row seats!
Ah so happy.
I've never known some so dedicated to not only their music, but his fans to.
He really loves us!
And that makes us love him even more.
It was so intimate and that just made it absolutely amazing, we was on the front row eep!!

Blogmas #24: Batiste Dry Conditioner

I saw this in boots a few weeks ago,
But walked away and thought nothing of it.
But last week, I thought why not give it a go?

I'm a big fan of Batiste, and it's my opinion that no other dry shampoo compares.
I love their stuff, so why not give this a go?

I'm SO impressed.
The "dry conditioner" sort of acts as a hair oil but without all the greasyness.
I use it on my ends and my hair instantly looks healthier, shinier and MUCH less frizzy.
The conditioner isn't white like the shampoo, but works in the same way that you simply spray on your hair.
Dry time is instant, and leaves no residue.
It contains Argan Oil, one of my all time favourite hair products, which is probably one of the reasons I love it so much!

What more can I say?

Blogmas #23: OOTD | Off to a Gig.

||Bag: Zara || Top: Topshop || Skirt: Primark || Jacket: Levi ||

This is what I wore for the Mike Dignam gig me and April went to, I adore this Levi's Jacket, even though its April's & I stole it for the day.
Birmingham's a beautiful, and slightly scary place at night.
We we're followed for a long time and at one point things got REALLY scary.
Hence the quick outfit post.
Always remember that if you are in trouble, walk into the first public place you can.
This is what me & April did, and who would have known what could have happened else.
We were pretty shook up for a while.

I don't know how this last photo turned out like this - but it looks kinda cool :)

Blogmas #21: NEW PHONE

So, I adored my blackberry torch more than anything.
But the time had come to get a new phone.

Uhm, so yes, I got an iPhone 5.
Case is from Forever 21.
I adore it.
I'm so in love with it, and I can now have super cool apps like instagram!
& how cute is this case?
I'm not one to jump on bandwagons, and the iPhone bandwagon is certainly a big one,
But I am pretty in love :)

Blogmas #20: New Purse, Good Cause

Picked up this baby from T K Maxx, & it was love at first sight.
I adore Elephants, and some of the proceeds go to supporting Elephants to. Great cause!
There's plent of storage and the patterns just beautiful.
I've never heard of the brand before but there was many different pieces by them in the store - only one of these babies though!
& at a mere £14.99, I really can't complain.

Blogmas #18: Daydreamers

So like, everyone has their things right? 
Those things that they're in to like travelling, fishing or exercise.
We'll I love dreams and space ....
Anything mystical and a little gypsy.
I saw this in poundland and could resist.

I have a lot of ridiculously wild dreams and even though I definitely do not take these definitions and the concrete meaning of dreams, it's just really interesting to have a look...
&who can argue for 2 for a £1?

I have a lot of nightmares to, so I think this is a mix of a lot of milkshakes and when i'm under stress...
Maybe this'll provide a little help ey ;)

Do you believe dreams mean something, or are they just dreams?
Either way this is just a little fun!

Blogmas #17: My biggest fear.

I saw the lovely Alex over at AllyTeePee do this post,
Mine is definitely not as heartfelt as hers but I thought it was really interesting to read about, 
& I really wanted to try it out.

So. I have three super big fears.

i. the dark
Yeah yeah, conventional right?
But i'm terrified.
If I'm left on my own in the dark, outside or inside, I will sob and sob uncontrollably.
If James goes back to Birmingham & i'm in the flat alone, or even if we've had a row & he sleeps in the spare room - this instantly means I have to sleep with the light on.
I have really good reasons from it steming from some deep childhood path - but I don't think i'll ever get over it.

ii. old age
I do NOT want to age another year. I want to go BACK already and I'm 20.
This also makes me cry.
I am not afraid of death whatsoever, but I'm absolutely terrified of reaching 30.
I can't cope.
Thinking about it brings me out in a panic attack.
I don't know why, or how this happened.
But its happening.
And I have absolutely no control over it.

iii. plasters
Okay, this is probably the weirdest thing ever right.
But. It's so bad, I have physically passed out before upon removing a plaster from a cut on my ankle.
Thinking about them, writing this post, turn my legs to jelly and makes my head spin.
Once I burnt myself really severely, head to peal melted trousers off my blistered skin, got in bandaged, it became infected, had to peel plaster and puss off stuck skin - you get the idea.
I can't even say anymore.
I could cry thinking about it.

So thats it!
I wide variety i'm aware - haha!
I'd love to know what you afraid of?

Blogmas #14: My New Smell.

There is absolutely no denying that ZARA is on of my most favourite places to shop.
So imagine my surprise when I discovered ZARA sells perfume!
This is a beautiful Vanilla essence, and theres some sort of pearlyness about the essence which is stunning.
Its super strong and lingers all day.
Wanna know the upmost best part?
It cost me £9.99.
These would be perfect for Christmas presents - although they're only available in store...
best stock up then? ;).

Blogmas #13: OOTD, Cat Lady.

 || Jumper: Tesco | Boots: Diechman | Skirt: Topshop | Blouse: Vintage ||

 A bit of a quick photo-shoot for this one,
I picked this jumper up from F+F in Tesco, I was so skint but just couldn't forget about it.
I adore it.
I think its super cute with my blouse and skirt,
The jumper was meant to fit really tight but I brought six sizes bigger than my normal size to gain that oversized look!
All in all, i'll be getting lots of wear from this beauty!

Blogmas #12: I like tea.

I absolutely ADORE tea.
I'm more than a bit of an addict, I get headaches & get incredibly grumpy without my tea fix!
But I also love fruit and flavoured tea and believe it can really help you become healthy.

So when Wittards opened a Christmas pop up shop in Plymouth.
I previously had the Turkish Apple & Dream Time tea from my lovely friend Alex over at AllyTeePee.

But I was instantly drawn to Cranberry & Rasberry and Strawberry & Vanilla.
The packaging is just SO gorgeous to, I must find some way to use them all afterwards.
I also brough a sneaky hot chocolate which is just to die for :)

I adore all of these! 
& I can't wait to use them all up!
I'll definitely be back before the end of Winter is through!

Blogmas #11: Review | Kate Moss for Rimmel lipsticks.

Weird comment, but I love how these pictures came out!

I adore this lipsticks.
They're ridiculously pigmented,
They last a super long time
They look pretty,
And I adore every single shade they have.
My favourite is 107, which for winter is just a must have edition.
Its great on it own, but I love to add some gloss to make it extra kissable!
James doesn't like all the kiss prints though! Haha!
