21st Birthday Haul

I went shopping the other day to get a couple of little presents for my friends 21st birthday (and I may have been naughty and got myself a few things too). Now unfortunately the picture won't do it justice as I was struggling for my bloomin' camera to work, but I shall post a little piccie of everything I bought.

I got her Peacock earrings from Accessorize (so sad they're wrapped and you couldn't see), they're goorgeous!! They were the last pair in the shop and the lady behind the till told me how lucky I was to get them - so Ali if you see this you'd better appreciate the beautifulness of them ;), a GOSH nail varnish in Miss Minty - pretty pretty!! Also, a Revlon lip butter, a hairband and giant chocolate buttons!! Now I knoow this may not seem that exciting for a 21st present, but I thought it would make a cute bundle and luckily she told me these were all things she'd been wanting - YES!! :)

So it may seem odd that I have facewipes and a deodorant in this picture.... but.. I always buy the Johnsons face wipes for dry skin (as I've been suffering with dry patches recently), but on my uni budget they can get a little expensive to repurchase unless you catch them on the buy one get one free deals. Everyone always tells me to just get a cheaper version and until now I haven't been able to let go of my love for the Johnsons wipes, but I've done it!! And to be honest, these wipes are pretty good (Superdrug's own brand) and they smell gorgeous like cucumber!! Facewipes  may become extinct in my skincare routine soon due to a new favourite buy which I shall divulge more about soon, but for now these ones are doing the job!! Now I know a lot of people don't talk about deodorant on their blogs but we all need one don't we!! And I think this one by Soft & Gentle scented with wild rose & vanilla smells amazing and works really so I've stuck with this product for a while now!!

\I also bought a few other things for myself and I shall be reviewing them all for you very soon :) .
I'm not currently using the blog as often as I'd hoped to and haven't included any in depth or exciting blogs, but I'm studying for my final year uni exams at the moment so have been pretty busy!! Hopefully in a few weeks time I will be able to dedicate some more time to this blog and make it as special as I was hoping for it to be :)

Ta ra!!

So this is my first ever post on my new sparkling blog adventure and I am so so excited to get it moving and on its way!! I thought the best thing for me to do would be to take this chance to introduce myself to all you beautiful people out there and hopefully once you know a bit about me you will want to hang around and read more! At this very early stage, I of course do not know what you would all like to know about me, so I will just tell you a few little things and then once my blog starts to blossom you will learn much more about moi :)
  • I am a self-confessed lover of all things girly. My brother even said I should start up a shop and call it 'Shiny Shiny Pretty Things', which I actually think is a brilliant idea - maybe one day hey!!
  • I am a 21 year old (almost) Psychology graduate - Yay
  • My motto in life is 'be positive and keep smiling', no-one likes a whinger now do they and life's too short to be miserable so just enjoy yourself!!
  • I LOVE beauty and fashion and furnishings and really as stated above - all things shiny and pretty! I'm hoping our shared love for such beautiful things is what brings you all here to my little blogging area!
I suppose this shall do for today, I don't want to bore you all on my first post (of hopefully many to come) by whittling on about rubbish because I am just too excited about finally getting around to do this ahhhh :D

Toodlepip my little cherubs!! xx
