Tonights the night bro! FOTN

Good morning girlies!

Over the weekend I had a chance to play with make up, Darren ♥ was at work on the Saturday so that gave me a chance to have a bit of 'me time'. I knocked up this FOTN for a night out, I just hope I get to wear it soon, it’s been far too long since I was out last.

Take me out! OOTN

Hey lovelies!

Are you all enjoying the Easter weekend? So relaxed and finally have some time to blog!

I don’t post that many outfit looks mainly because I don’t feel I have much style and really need some inspiration from other people. I’d love to go on Gok Wan’s show for him to style me and put me in clothes that suit my shape. For me the Summer months are a nightmare, I feel safe in the winter all under wraps but come the summer my insecurities come back out and the task of finding some new clothes just scares me!

Anyway, I was reading Ree’s blog a few weeks back and she posted an OOTD wearing this shirt, I knew I had to have it! It is everything I love in a shirt, I love the long sleeves, the fact the collar is black and looks gorgeous done up to the top. I had to get a size bigger than I am because it gaped slightly at the bust but other than that I just love it! I really don’t have the body shape to pull off the skinny jeans Ree was wearing too but I dug out my black jeggings from New Look and they look just as good.

Shirt Matalan £16
Black Jeggings New Look £12 (I think)
Schuh black court shoes £58 (bought last year)

What do you think? Are you in love with this shirt too? Check it out here, it’s a bargain at £16, I am in love with Matalan clothes at the minute they seem to have some gorgeous bits and pieces in.

Bomb Cosmetics – Patchouli and Pink Peppercorn Bath Creamer

Hello gorgeous groupies!

I think my house is finally getting there and I’m getting back into the swing of blogging! I’m back with this corker of a post!

On the left is the Shea Bliss Bath Mallow and the right is Patchouli and Pink Peppercorn Bath Creamer

Over the weekend of 24th/25th March was the Vitality Show. It is a ritual that me, my sister ♥, Darren’s sister ♥ and our friend Helen ♥ go every year, we’ve been 3 years on the trott now and just love it every time. If you haven’t been before, check out the website and see what it’s all about. There are loads of stalls there Vaseline, Sally Hensen and Bio Oil to name a few. There is a full list of the brands/stalls on the website. I was a little disappointed that Benefit or Nails Inc weren’t there this year. You get given free samples as you walk around and can buy magazines for £2 or £3 with a shed load of free products. You get a free goody bag with your ticket too. We learnt from the first year of going that you need to take a trolley to cart all your stuff around with you. I picked up a few gems to blog about over the coming weeks.

So, back to the creamer!

The Bomb Cosmetics stall was by far my favourite stall, it was the first stall we had a ‘proper’ look at, took ages to smell the bath bombs and rub moisturiser in, we decided we would go back towards the end and browse again and make our pur-chases!

In this post I’m going to talk about the bath creamers that I picked up, I tried one for the first time last night and I was so so impressed. If you’ve been with me for a while you will know that I am in love with anything smelling of patchouli oil, I just love the earthiness and musk that I get from it. I got 2 Patchouli and Pink Peppercorn Bath Creamers, these were on sale at the show for £2 each but on the website they’re £2.09. I picked one up for Mum and the other for me, she too is a patchouli lover. I got the Shea Bliss Bath Mallow for Darren ♥, he wouldn’t admit it to anyone but he is a secret bath bomb pincher! He raids my stash all the time. He hasn’t used it yet so I will blog about that another time.

The Patchouli and Pink Peppercorn Bath Creamer was so lovely, I ran the water to a nice warm temperature and rubbed the creamer between my fingers to release the fab oils and peppercorns from it. I didn’t want to use it all because I only had the one so kept the other half on my soap dish (until tonight!). The scent was still prominent in my bathroom for hours after and I could smell it on my skin for hours too. It left my skin so soft and silky, I also shaved my legs last night and think it helped to make them as smooth as a babys bum!

Rub the creamer between your fingers to release the oils and fragrance

Silky moisturising bath foam!

The other half for tonight :)

I picked up 3 bath bombs from Bomb Cosmetics too but will blog about these as I use them, I just have to make sure I get to them before Darren! ♥

Have any of you tried Bomb Cosmetics? They are half the price of LUSH and the designs of the bombs are so cute I think they appeal to me more.
