Little updates

Happy Sunday everyone!  I'm not sure why I'm so cheerful today - it must be all of the sunshine we've been getting in London.  I love Winter but it went on far too long and I'm so pleased Spring is here and I can stop lugging around a big winter coat!  I hope it's sunny where you are too.

Lately I've been totally addicted to Prison Break - I never watched it when it was on TV but I've been catching up with it on Love Film.  I'm just starting season 3 now and I love it.  To me it's as good as 24 or Lost and Wentworth Miller is a total hottie, so that helps.  I need to find a new equally amazing show to watch when I finish the last season.  

As I mentioned I've started Slimming World - I'm in my third week and it's going really well so far.  I'll probably do a post about it in the next week or two as I know some of you may never have tried that diet and will be interested to know what it's all about.  

Don't forget to enter my USA goodies giveaway and my Soak Yourself giveaway - I have another giveaway coming up in May too! xx

  3. Loving those cupcakes! Wish I could do the icing that neatly! xxo

    1. It's all about the tools - I use the jumbo icing nozzles xx

  4. i love your website :) ive been looking on your page the past few weeks now and noticed you post all sorts of different things, im in need of a new bronzer but im not to sure which one to buy? which one would you recommend not too expensive?


    1. Thanks Hayleigh :) I'm currently planning a purchase of the cult beauty lover's bronzer - Nars laguna, but I'd hardly call that not too expensive! One of the ones I really like that's good value is the bronzer and highlighter duo from Sleek. You can get it in Superdrug and it's only about £7 and you get two products in one xx


Let me know what you think, and feel free to leave your blog link! I really appreciate every comment and always reply to questions x
