3. The vitamin E mosituriser - Ritch but light weight once on the skin, sinks in well, smells gorgeous, its gentle and you do see results. Who ever said... do pain no gain?

Amazing! I brought this 2 weeks ago and use it for everything. I use it on my feet, stretch marks etc... I even use it on painful inflammed spots and it soothes them and prevents spots ive attacked already turning into scars. Currently on offer in superdrug for 2.73 so you are saving 1.00 ! Its 250ml - Imagen how much a cream like this in lush would set you back 15-20 quid maybe?? so glad I found this and smells utterly gorgeous, all coca and coconutt like =)

Treasures? Pic Heavy.


Whilst I have ditched a lot of junk I have decided to keep these old childhood books, as they are so nice, and have an RRP of around 20.00 each. I am hoping that one day I will have children to give them to. Is there anything from your childhood that you have kept in the hope your children will one day want? Or am I being ridiculous?

How beautiful are these?
How could I ever chuck these out.
If you have anything you can not get rid of from your childhood please let me know - so I know im not alone.

blook lovin' =)

Expressing my love for books on my blog =)

I love reading - I really can not tell you why though?

Anyway summer is prob the best time to talk about books as people who would not normally read are also joining in with the action =)

I recently went to waterstones and got 3 (2 books and 1 diary)

1. THE SOHAM PSYCHIC - this story happened when I was around the same age as these girls and I remember people talking about it etc. And now I have developted a love for psychic things and anything mysterious I thought I would get this book. I am 1/2 way though it ... will do a reveiw soon. But one thing I can say is the whole book isnt entirely about what happened with holly and jessica. He does explains other general things surrounding being a psychic.

Being the Soham Psychic
£6.29 at waterstones.com

2. I got this book as I recently seen a news broadcast where they talked about a dog who a family were trying to bring back from afganistan as the dog was their dead relatives companion so I thought I would get this book too .

Haul. Bodyshop, hotel chocolat, yankee candles etc + Woburn safari park.

A huge update.

I recently went on a rare shopping trip =)

Here is a few pics - not everything I got is included.

Bodyshop: They had a online offer where if you spend 40 pounds you got 20pounds off so 1/2 price right? And was free delivery. I had to make to orders though in order to get 80 pounds worth of stuff for 40 pounds - Obviously this is not all of it =)

I needed a bronzer but as I am as pale as casper I was very worried - But loved the look of this baked one - I had a look through some of the feedback on the site for this bronzer and decided to go ahead this is shade 01. Glad I did get this bronzer. Its excellent quality and will last me years and no messy balls everywhere =) Was ment to be 18.00 got his for 9.00 =) NOT BAD

The blush for more stubtle days was supposed to be 12.00 and got this for 6.00.

I have used many primers including benefit, loreal etc etc and had to wipe many of them off along with the foundation they have been that awful. Dispite a few reveiws of this primer not being good - I was totally impressed by it and will deffo buy again .

The rainforest mask 3.00 for 50mls normall price. 1.50 I got this for, because of how damaged and how long my hair is I did only get 2 uses out of it so glad I only paid 1.50. Was good and did notice a different for the better in my hair. However to expensive to continue to use really.

The coconut hair shine is amazing. REALLY SORTED MY DRY SPLITTING ENDS OUT - if you dont buy anything from the body shop for the next 10 years get this - truely amazing.

Cucumber clenser 2.00 normal price 4.00 brought back from the 80s range I do beleive - amazing for dry sensitive skin does help to calm - even out skin tone and prevent spots I found

Cucumber toning water 2.00 normal price 4.00 also from 80s range. Brilliant to cool and sooth the skin especially after using a facial scrub or soemthing like that. I repurchased this a few days after i received this inorder to ensure I was stocked up .

The bodyshop bannanna shampoo and conditioner. 2.00 each payed usually 4.00 each.
Amazing really do smell like bannannas and so lovely to use - shampoo lathers up really well. Sweet smelling, soft, well groomed looking hair. Truely amazing. This is my 2nd round of these products and will deffo buy again.

Raspberry ripple shower gel. I thought this would smell of rasperrys and vanilla for some reason as if it would be raspberry ripple ice cream. However it really does smell just as raspberrys - imagen bursting a rasberry and smelling it - thats exactly what this is like. truely gorgeous this is also usually 4.00 I payed 2.00 =)

I decided to get a little bit og luxery whilst reading and chilling over my weekend off spent with the bf so I picked these up supposed to me 3.50 each but if you got 3 or more you payed 2.95 each. They are nice but nothing thorntons couldnt do for less. happy with quality of product but next time will go to thorntons.

yankee candle tartlets on offer for 55p each =) whoop !
