Candles

My recent obsession has been candles! Plain ones are boring but I love scented ones that you can smell when you walk through the door. I'm really funny when it comes to scents, I don't like spiced scents at all. I smelt a spiced cider candle yesterday and it was horrible eventhough most people would probably like it. I like ones that smell like food and sweets aha. I wish we could get Bath and Body Works Candles here in the UK. I ordered two minis on Ebay which came to almost £10! I actually thought they were bigger than they were. There is a website you can find them on with UK delivery but they're quite expensive and there are limited scents. http://www.bathandbodyshop.co.uk/ Wild Strawberry Flower Shop My favourite candle is one that I picked up from a card warehouse last year for about £2 ish! It's almost gone but for that price I should have picked up a few! It is cookie dough flavoured but I can't take a picture because it has fal

Shopping in Tamworth :)

Ryan's football match was cancelled today because of the snow so we decided to go out for the day. I've done quite well with my spending ban considering today is the 28th of the month but I definitely wouldn't manage the 100 day ban that some people are doing! We headed over to Tamworth and here are some of the things that I got: All of my favourite leggings have come from Topshop. I laready had these in the pale blue version so I decided to pick up the darker pair, £22. I also got this set of six rings for only £2.50. You can get some bargains in their jewellery sale. The T K Maxx there was really nice and it's one of my favourite shops anyway! Everything was so tidy and the stock in there was really good. There were some really nice OPI nail varnishes that I considered but I have so many that i'm sticking to nail varnish ban for the time been. I needed some skinny belts for work. These were £7.99 for 2 and they are Steve Madden which is quite

My £4.97 shopping trip

This year, I have been trying to save money by almost going on a 'No Buy Month', mainly to save money and simply because I have so much stuff that realistically I don't need anything. I have actually surprised myself with how well i've been doing. Today is the 16th and excluding food and bills, I have spent a total of £4.97 with a bit of cheating/bending the rules.  Firstly, I have avoided going to the shops. Usually Saturday's are my shopping day and i'll buy endless amounts of clothes and make up simply because I want to. I still want to but staying away from the shops has meant i've sorted my room out and rediscovered old things.  My cheat day happened because I had ran out of foundation. I have used Revlon Colorstay for probably two years plus and I love it but I wanted a foundation without SPF for those shots where the flash makes me as white as a ghost.  I headed to Boots accompanied by my £20 gift card that I got for Christmas and my Adva

Glossybox January 2013

Considering it's a New Year and a new start, I actually had higher hopes for my Glossybox. This month's box is the 'Detox Box'. Delivery was quicker than usual which was good but then i'm just impatient! Lacoste Perfume Sample - 30ml, £33 Tiny perfume samples aren't something that I really like. This ones a flowery scent and is nice but it's definitely not a luxury sample and I've never gone out and bought any of the full sized versions of miniature samples that i've had or even used them up for that matter. MONU Micro Exfoliant - 100ml, £14.50 This exfoliator sample is 30ml and i'm happy with it. I'll definitely use it but it wouldn't be something that i'd go and purchase myself. Well, we'll see if it surprises me! SANCTUARY SPA Thermal Transformation Mask - 50ml, 75ml, £27.50 I prefer bottled samples as packets seem to accumulate with me and I don't get round to using them.  BM Beauty Finishin

Fake MAC

I got this eyeshadow palette for Christmas and i'd say it's fake. I'm not really a MAC fanatic and probably have just over ten MAC products but knowing make up enough tells me that it isn't legit. I'm not sure whether the person that got me this was aware of the fact but i'm not going to say anything, if it was real of course i'd be very happy with it! Firstly, I personally haven't seen a MAC palette this size (it's identical to the Sleek palettes in size). Then, you can't tell from the picture but it actually looks like the MAC logo has been tipexxed onto the packaging.  Inside, it looks like the Sleek eyeshadows too and I haven't seen any MAC palettes that come with the silly little sponge applicators. I'm definitely wary of using this incase it has any dodgy chemcials in.  Let me know what you think about this! xxxx Tasha

What I got for Christmas 2012 :) Part One

My majorly overdue Christmas post! Ryan really really spoilt me! I'd seen my present pile at his house but when it made it round to my house it had tripled in size. So thank you Ryan! I'm a big kid and used to love having tonnes of surprises when Santa came. I'd rather have lots of little things than a big expensive present but this year I got everything. and I am really appreciative.

Sale Shopping

My Boxing Day sales consisted of River Island alone. My mum hates shopping but she used to take me to town on Boxing Day just to go to River Island, literally the one day a year she would come shopping with me! We used to queue outside until it opened at 10am. This time, I couldn't be bothered with the chaos that was bound to be happening in town so I went to our local mall. I got in quite early but this year, well last year now, they had opened at 8am! I had a look at the online sale on Christmas Eve and couldn't believe how much had already sold out. I saw this grey cardigan online and knew I wanted it as I have the oxblood jumper version and had considered getting this one before aswell. It was reduced from £35 to £17 but there was only one left and it is a size 14 when I would normally get a size 10 but I wanted it aha. Excuse the headless shots! This cape was reduced from £48 to £25. This was an impulse buy and I wouldn't have paid full price for it.

December Empties

I've actually used up quite a lot of products this month that I really like rather than ones I actually want to get to the bottom of and use up. I'm going to try my hardest to use up a lot of my products instead of constantly buying new ones and having excessive amounts! I have no excuse as I got lots of new goodies for Christmas. This wont last too long but i'm going to aim for a month or two at least.  Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel - I absolutely adore this scent and its pink and glittery! It's usually reduced after Christmas so I should've picked some up. Rimmel Gentle Make Up Eye Remover - This does the job and is oil free so isn'tt as stubborn as removing make up as it could be. I'm more likely to purchase another eye make up than this again but I got the No 7 Eye Make Up Remover in a set for Christmas so that's next! Soap & Glory Moisturising Mist - This is good and great for when you want to moisturise really lazily and qu
