2010 in Pictures.

Just saw a post like this on Jennie's blog and thought I'd do the same :)

I started the year off with a boyfriend whom we made this Baked Alaska for, he was unappreciative. (Even though we made it look like a ski slope (he liked skiing) and decorated it with his favourite comic book characters)
Me and Vicki took a trip to London in January and stayed at The Hoxton would definitely recommend it! It was lovely! Check out their £1 room sales too!
Me and Raj in the library (with coffee), as this was our final year at uni we spent many hours in the library doing our dissertations.
Sambuca. In March it was my brothers 18th, we drank too much Sambuca and I ended up falling down the stairs and being put in bed at 10:30pm lol. Bless him, he sat by me until I fell asleep so I didn't choke on my own vomit.
Me and Vicki decided we were scientists in April, check out the goggles.
The 3rd year Social Sciences ball was in May (me, Vicki, Jodie and Raj)
Results at midnight in June, I got a first for my dissertation! So proud.

Dad and me at my graduation in July
Slushies in Avenham Park where we spent most of June and July because the weather was so good!

Me and Vicki at Warehouse in September, on one of our reunions as we no longer live together :(
Me being a cat and Vicki being a witch in October, on this night I managed to fall over and twist a ligament in my knee. Excellent.

And that just about sums up my year. The first half was better as I much preferred living in Preston with Vicki and not having any responsibilities, but guess we all have to grow up at some point! Hope 2011 sees us being reunited :)

Face of the Day

No weekend wishlist this weekend, sorry guys! I've been frantically buying Christmas presents and not had the time!

But here is my face of today:
(My face looks really ghost like for some reason, it's the same colour as my neck in real life!)

I'm trying out the new Revlon 'Fire and Ice' lipstick that I bought at the weekend, so far I'm liking it, I do love red lipstick. This one is very creamy and moisturising too, bonus. Will update on whether is survived a day shopping later on...

I Open at the Close

Look what arrived on my doorstep this morning! I ordered it a few weeks ago from this etsy seller, and I love it. I love quirky necklaces and this is perfect for me as I am also a huge Harry Potter fan, think it will be adorning my neck every day from now on, I have it on now with my pj's lol.


Golden Snitch Necklace - Space Pearls $15 (with free shipping!) worked out to be £9.88 

I love it so much! It even opens to be a little tiny locket, but I forgot to photograph this, silly. It also came packaged in that lovely purple bag with little beads and shredded cellophane, so would make an ideal gift. 

I can't find the item on the site at the moment but as they are handmade I'm sure there are more being made as we speak, keep checking back if you are as much of a Harry Potter geek as I am! There are also more Harry Potter themed items as well as Twilight and Alice in Wonderland! 

Check out Space Pearls here!

T.K. Maxx Bargains

I popped into T.K. Maxx at the weekend to browse the cosmetics section as I often do if I'm passing, you never know what gems might be lurking amongst the rubbish. Normally I have no luck whatsoever, but this time I picked up two items that were truly bargainous.

EcoTools 6 Piece Brush Set - £7.99
I have heard great things about EcoTools and I always look at the mini brush set that they have in Tesco for about £9, imagine how pleased I was to see this full size 6 piece brush set for only £7.99! They are so soft, you get a blush brush, eye shading brush, eyeliner brush, lash/brow groomer, concealer brush and then the brush roll which will be perfect for travelling. Can't wait to use them!

Urban Decay - Best of Urban - Baked - £12.99
So pleased that I found this, half-baked is one of my favourite eye shadows from UD and this includes a full-size one. The set also includes a Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Baked, a mini Primer Potion, and a 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Bourbon. Lovely shades for this time of year, especially the glitter liner!

What bargains have you found in T.K. Maxx recently?
Anything I need to keep my eyes peeled for?

Weekend Wishlist

Image from here
Bubblegum Lip Scrub - Lush - £4.50
With all this cold weather my lips have become very flaky and dry, ew. I need a lip scrub to get them looking nice enough to be able to wear lipstick again, I miss it!

Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter - Lush - £2.50
Another Lush item, my cuticles are terrible at the mo and I really need something to sort them out! I've heard great things about the cream so really want to give it a go! And it's not too pricey either :)

Powderflage - Benefit - £15.60
I've been wanting to try this under-eye powder for ages and this week I heard that it is being discontinued! It's in the sale section of the Benefit website at the moment and I can't make my mind up about ordering it or not.

Kerb Shoes - Topshop - £55
You would not believe how long I have been after a pair of shoes like this! Adult sized little girl shoes, adorable! Not everyone's cup of tea but I love them! Will definitely be buying these when I get paid on Friday.

Looking For Alaska - John Green
I've wanted to read this book for a while now, been watching lots of reviews of it on YouTube this week and I think I definitely need it. Might add it to my Christmas list.

Robot Necklace - Temporary Secretary - £10
Isn't this little guy the cutest? I'd love to have him be a part of my collection, I think he'd make good friends with my squirrels :)

What are you after this weekend?

Models Own Nail Polish

I think a love affair has begun with Models Own Nail Polish, I only owned one for ages (Grace Green) and then I purchased three more at the weekend and I love them. The formula is good, only 1-2 coats are required for full opacity and they are quick drying.

Grace Green (Barry M - Pink Iridescent on the ring finger)
Juicy Jules naked on the ring finger (I hate how yellow my nails are) and over Grace Green on the index finger
Juicy Jules (Check out that holographic glitter! I love it!)
Emerald City 
Two coats of Emerald City over Grace Green (Looks much better layered over another colour)
In The Navy (Could have done with 2 coats really)

Juicy Jules layered over In The Navy, I think it looks like a starry night sky lol, can't stop looking at them!

Hope this post was helpful :)
