SIX ON SUNDAY #9

SIX-ON-SUNDAY

I thought we’d have a new look to this week’s Six on Sunday post, how do you like it? I also think that I’m going to start publishing the post at this time every week so as to catch you all just before/after #bbloggers on Twitter (which is a weekly chat for beauty bloggers on twitter which has a different theme each week and is usually really good!) and give you something to read while you wait. Good plan, no?

songoftheweek

 Razorlight – Golden Touch

This song is one of my all-time favourites, I don’t know what it is about it but it just reminds me of being 17 and having BBQ’s in fields and snuggling in sleeping bags with boys. Those were the days.

Do you have songs that have this effect on you?

Russell Brand On The Road – BBC 2 about 4 years ago…

With the excitement of the new On The Road film coming out soon I was reminded of the documentary that Russell Brand and Matt Morgan did a few years ago where they travelled around America visiting the places that Jack Kerouac did in the book. It’s a hilarious documentary but is also informative and is really well made, definitely worth a watch if you’re interested in the Beats and Jack Kerouac or if you’re just a Russell Brand fan!

It’s available on You Tube in 7 parts here

Lush The Comforter Bubble Bar

The Comforter is a long time favourite of mine, it smells amazing – all blackcurranty and lovely. It makes your bath all pink and full of bubbles too, and one bar can last for ages – I normally get about 8 baths out of each one. I am about to hop into a bath with one of these, they are perfect for Sunday nights.

What is your favourite Lush bath bomb/bubble bar?

event

The defining event of my week this week was popping along to NatWest yesterday and reducing my overdraft limit to £500, now this might not sound like a particularly amazing achievement but for me it is. Two years ago I graduated from university with a £2,000 maxed out overdraft. I think I had about £30 of it left over when I graduated. Not a good place to be my friends. I have been steadily reducing it in £500 chunks ever since I started my job, and this was the third one – much quicker than I imagined it would be too – I’m so proud of myself! Next time I get paid I will actually have money in the positive, for the first time ever. I cannot wait!

Louella

I’m sure that you’ve all heard about Louise (Sprinkle of Glitter) and Zoe’s (Zoella) new venture by now but if not, here you go. Louise and Zoe have decided to open an online shop selling their favourite things, and the first things that they are stocking are the Bdellium make-up brushes that I’ve heard some amazing things about – if I didn’t already have hundreds of brushes I’d definitely be buying some. I think it’s important to support other blogger’s in their ventures and wish the girls the very best of luck!

Will you be buying any brushes from Louella?

Joanne’s blog is a blog that I have long admired, she has amazing style and her outfit posts are therefore must-reads in my books. Joanne also posts about beauty and lifestyle and does occasional haul posts too. She has just started doing a weekly ‘week in pictures’ post too, which are always my favourite posts to read as you get to know the blogger much better!

  1. Amy this post has really made me wish I had had a comforter bubble bath tonight. My fave all time Lush bath product! Congrats on lowering that nasty overdraft. I know what you mean, mine is at £600 and need to get it down but with a wedding coming up and a out of control beauty obsession I just don't see it happening, lol! Also just to let you know I have finally managed to post about my winnings from your fab giveaway x Danielle x http://danziesbitsofbeauty.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/my-first-giveaway-win.html

  2. I really know what you mean about songs - there are certain songs that just take me away to places. Beating Hearts Baby by Head Automatica reminds me of the nightclub I used to go to EVERY Saturday from the age of 17-20, it brings back cider and black, boy drama and being a complete emo, haha! I'm also jealous of your bath tonight :( I'm trying to use up my other bath stuff before I go on a Lush shop again! x

    1. Ahh Beating Hearts Baby is one of mine too, it reminds me of house parties and drunken piano playing! I was a little emo back then too!

      And I've got loads of Lush I had completely forgotten about, win! x

  3. Aw I remember the days of loving and being in Razorlight when no one else really knew who they were. Those were the days. Although their songs sadly grate on me these days - more of a metal and trance head now, oh how things change!
