Pictures of 2012!

Hello! Another 'reflection' post of sorts. I was looking through all my old photos from 2012, and thought I'd share all that has happened with me in 2012! :)
I turned 18 this year and had such a fantastic birthday made special by those around me! 
I also discovered my fave companies, such as Lush and MUA!  I got some amazing gifts such as my perfume, tickets to McFLY TWICE! (Christmas and Birthday) and reached one of my dreams by seeing them live! I got the amazing oppotunity to go to the Paralympics, seeing the blind football, goal ball and supporting team GB! I wasn't one to get into the Olympics and didn't really see the fuss, but after going I did! I left school! I sort of miss it, but I was so happy to leave, moved out, got Alfie, planned many events and parties, like my Boyfriend's and helping my mum with her wedding! So in all, I'm looking at the positives of this year, I've learnt this year that Family and Friends are so important, so don't take them for granted! 

So once again, I hope you have a happy new year, and a fantastic 2013! :)

2012 - Reflection time.

First off, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and boxing day! :) 

As we close the lid on 2012, I've been looking back on the things I've been through in the past year. The highs and the lows. The good and the bad. And what it has taught me. Where do I even start? 

Well lets start with the fact that 2012 has made me the strongest I've ever been. It's made me grow as a person, and realise that the people around you are the ones that should make you happy and can be there for you. I had so many learning curves. 

My family had a horrible start to the year. My mum had a cancer scare and the thoughts that go through your mind is unreal. Is your mum going to die? Will she still be able to do this and that? It's horrible, and as a result of this, I became distant from people and started pushing them away. I didn't mean to but that's how I dealt with things. Looking back now, if I didn't have the support of my family, friends and my lovely boyfriend, I don't think I could have coped. The fact that I had to be strong for my mum, I'd let it all out at my boyfriends and I didn't tell his family what was going on. They must of thought I was going mental. Thankfully, she was ok in the end and it was soon sorted. But at the time, I don't think I've ever been more scared in my life. 

2012, wasn't great healthwise for me. I was in and out of hospital, numerous tests, doctors appointments and I think the amount of blood taken from my body this year must be unreal! Unfortunatly this caused me to sink into self pity and I was sometimes terrified to leave the house by myself in case I fell over through my dizzy spells I'd been having. Once again, Andy was my rock and if I didn't have him I would have never gone to the doctors! I'm still in the process of trying to find out what is wrong, but on wards and upwards as they say!

It's not all doom and gloom, but it's fair to say I can't wait to see the end of this year! BUT time for the positves! (Yes I did have SOME!)
Me and Andy got a flat together! Although I haven't officially moved in, I stay there most of the time! And in 2013 I can't wait to move in full time! It's lovely to have a place to call our own and do what we want with it! Shopping trips to Ikea and Asda for the past 3 months have been the most fun ever! And I owe him everything!

We got our little munchkin Alfie. He may be a rabbit but he's part of the family, and yes I did spoil him over chirstmas! He got presents like the rest of us and a special rabbit xmas dinner (Sad I know!). He's my baby and I spoil him rotten! I'm so glad we have him and he loves cuddles!

I left sixth form this year, after completing my A Levels, at one point I was going to give up! I'm so glad I didn't. I've not gone to UNI MY OWN CHOICE i'd like to add. Instead i'm reaching for my dreams of working in PR or Marketing, So far, I've had job interviews in top London companies, no luck in getting a job but it's a start! 

In all, 2012, it's been eventful, leaving my job, got a new one and then went back to my old one. It's been tough, but I've had such a good learning experience! 

I hope 2013 has good times to bring as I'm going to make it mine! :)

Happy New Year All! 

Love, Emily <3

Bucket List Hype.

Baby Baby Bucket List to be precise.

Recently, me and boyfriend have been talking more and more about having children. Not right now, as we feel too young, but in the near future. After talking about it and seeing his brother and his girlfriend with their baby, who was born in September it got me thinking. How much do you want to do now, while you still have the time and the money? Don't get me wrong, but I know babies are expensive and time consuming, but at the same time, I know they're a blessing as well. But realistically, I know that when a baby comes along, as my sister-in-law has found out, it's not always possible to do the things that you've always wanted too!

I have written a bucket list in which me and boyfriend have put together of things we'd like to achieve and do by the time we want to have children. It's a list that is full of personal things, individually and as a couple. Don't get me wrong, if I don't complete this list before we have a baby then it's not the end of the world, and I KNOW people keep saying you're only young you don't need to think about children,  but it's something that is a big deal for my boyfriend and I. It's something we both want and have done for a while. So why shouldn't we be prepared?!

I thought I'd share this, as I found this very useful, for personal reasons as well as practical!

  1. Save £1000 up in a savings account. (For a Rainy Day)
  2. Change my Job/Get a better one.
  3. Travel to Spain
  4. Travel to A Cannery Island.
  5. Open up a Baby's saving account. (For things for the baby!)  Done 2012 
  6. Build up my blog.
  7. Perfect a certain recipe   Done Jan 2013. Homemade pizza!
  8. Watch the stars with Andy.
  9. Get my driving license.
  10. Buy a car!  Done April 2013.
  11. Collect up items to put in a memory box for the baby. Part complete. Brought A Box Feb 2013
  12. Have a romantic weekend away.
  13. Visit a casino.
  14. Go on a girls weekend.
  15. Go to a Spa Done April 2013
  16. Make a ginger bread house.
  17. Got to the theatre.
  18. Go to a Man united match (Andy)
  19. Go to a Liverpool match (ME!!)
  20. Go to a Mcfly Concert.  Done in 2013 - Boyfriend got me tickets for christmas!
  21. Spend more time with my friends.
  22. Sleep in on my days off.
  23. Have breakfast in bed at least once a week
  24. Spend a full day in London sight seeing.
  25. Sort out our flat. Done Feb/March 2013. Painting completed and now fully furnished. 

In the years we've been together, we've been through alot. He's my rock.

So far this is what we've put together, I think theres some really easy things to complete, others will take time! But that's the idea, I plan to complete this within 3 years, and then maybe, we will be ready! Theres no exact answer, but this is a guide. This is personal to me, so please understand, I'm not saying this is what I HAVE to do! This is what I'd like to do, and for an 18 year old, I feel this is a mature approach :)

Hope you enjoy! xxx

2012, good riddance!


Sorry for my absense recently, as usual I have the excuses of my internets been down, I've been busy and I've been very ill! Not to mention the fact I've not been feeling myself at all. I realised the other day what a miserable cow I've been on twitter and to people I love dearly. Today I put it all aside, soaked in the bath, gave my hair a good treatment and pampered myself silly, the results? I felt so good. 

I feel so glad to have some very special people around me that have helped me out when I've been feeling my worst. I'm on the mend now and off all my medication, thank God!!! I'm getting there, and I'm trying to find my blogging mojo again, so don't think you've got rid of me! I'll be back soon as I've got alot to post about! 

That's all for now :) speak to you all soon! 

lots of love & merry Christmas xxxxxx

Shopping Fever! Christmas series #3

So as I'm feeling festive and in such a blogging mood. Yesterday I done what I thought was IMPOSSIBLE! I've finished pretty much ALL my Christmas shopping BEFORE December even began! Very happy Emily indeed! So anyway, I have to say, it was difficult, seeing as I'm on a very tight budget, well me and my boyfriend, that I was trying to spread the costs and shop around alot. I then began thinking, I thought my readers would like some help on where I got most of my presents from and the best shops to browse because, as I found, you'll ALWAYS find something :) 

So here we go; 

  1. Argos. Obvious one I guess, however I didn't expect to get as much as I did from here. I used up an old voucher I had lying around from my birthday to put towards some presents :)
  2. Supermarkets! Me and my boyfriend were doing our weekly shop when I saw that Coop had a sale on all spirits such as Vodka and Malibu ect on sale! Now, in my family and his, these are the perfect presents for people, and we stocked up as well! £12 for a large bottle of Smirnoff Vodka isn't bad going! :) 
  3. B&Ms Home Bargains. Some might not have heard of this! But I got so many things from here, from stocking filler type gifts, to larger items aswell! They have novelty gifts, new baby chirstmas items, beauty sets, basically if you want it, they have it! I got so many things from here! I got something small like a mug full of love hearts, to a nice bottle of perfume. Seriously, find your nearest one! 
  4. Wilkinsons. Another obvious one I suppose! LOVE LOVE LOVED this shop. I got so many things for children here, which in my family & my boyfriends is a important, as we have many young cousins, nephews and nieces between us. They have a sale on all there 'make it yourself' range for small children, so I stocked up! Perfect to fill there gift hampers with! (Blog post coming soon on this!) 
  5. My last one for now is EBAY! I've picked up some great stuff on there, including a signed poster of my boyfriends hero, my little sisters hero and my dads! Now these are expensive examples, but smaller items such as a sweets gift hamper I got for my sister - in - law was a steal! You just need to shop around and trust me you'll find the bargains :D 
So I hope you found this somewhat useful. I will add more later, but for now, enjoy and happy shopping!

A tad of Christmas cheer! #2

It's that time of year again when my tinsil is out, my wrapping skills are in top form and my bank account is close to being frozen. Yes. It's christmas time. I'll admit, I was stalking Bex's blog Futures, I came across this post she did last year, talking about what she was looking forward too and what wishes she had for the Decemeber month. I really liked the idea, so thought I'd give it ago, as there's alot I'm looking forward too! 

2012 has been an odd year for me, one filled with tears, laughter, joy, heartbreak and disapointment. It's one of those years, I want to keep the precious memories and put behind me the 'darker parts' of my life this year.
I'm looking forward to this December:
  1. Spending my first Christmas with my boyfriend! It's our 3rd Christmas we've been together and we've decided to spend it together rather than apart this year.
  2. Giving my family there gifts! I've put so much effort into them this year, and I can't wait to see the joy on their faces. 
  3. A few cosy days off with my boyfriend. With both of us working full time, it's difficult to spend time together, so I'm looking forward to a few days together, watching films and decorating our little flat.
  4. Of course decorating our flat with pretty twinkle lights and glitter! Very excited for this!
  5. To finish off my shopping! I've done ALL my gifts bar 1 and now it's the dreaded food shop. Yet, I'm super excited!
  6. Double Discount at work. Yes I'm sad, but double discount means stocking up on that Christmas cheer,and for me that means vodka and JD!
  7. Christmas Dinner. Who is not looking forward to this to be fair!
  8. My nieces Christmas concert! Shes' only 8 but I love going to them! :)
  9. Opening presents. Of course everyone enjoys this!
  10. Outings! I'm going for a few meals out, including one with bloggers! I can't wait to meet these lovely ladies, super excited!
  11. Family time. Moving out and everything has showed me I do miss my family, so christmas day is going to be lovely with my family and then with the in-laws :)
So there we go, here's what I'm looking forward too this month, what about you? 
Goodbye November, You've been a decent month! Here's to December!! :)

It's the most wonderful time of the year....#1

Hello Lovelies!
So it's getting to that fabulous time of year when I get all giddy like a child, fairy lights become acceptable and I start my festive cheer! So I got this tag off  Bex at Futures and was created by Georgina at Make-up Pixi3 and thought it would be fun to do! I love christmas, it's one of the best times in the year, and this year is the first year I'm spending it with my boyfriend, and I'm super excited! So anyway, here's my tag! :)

Q. What's your favourite thing about Christmas?
The atmosphere, I just love the excitement of waking up in the morning, every year me and my sister will sleep in her room and up until recent times, would wake up at 5am and check every hour until it was alright to go open our stockings in our parents room! This year might be a little different, but I am still hoping to have a stocking, even if I am 18!! I'm looking forward to being with both my family and boyfriend opening presents this year!

Q. What’s your favourite makeup look for the festive season?
I love dark colours! I love the metallic reds and greens, and of course, who doesn't love a little glitter over the festive season?!

Q. Real tree or fake tree?
I've only ever had 1 real tree, and it was a pain! This year is the first year me and my boyfriend have our own flat, so we have a fake white one. 

Q. Giving presents or receiving presents?
Both? I love giving presents, I love putting thought into them and wrapping them nicely, with pretty bows and stuff! I like receiving too, like everyone.

Q. Do you open your presents Christmas morning or evening?
In the morning, we all gather round the tree and give them out one by one to each person, so we all open them together :)

Q. Handmade Christmas cards or bought?
This year I'm doing some handmade ones! But of course, I have brought ones too.  

Q. What’s your favourite Christmas film?
I'm sorry, but it has to be home alone! and when I was younger, it was tradition for me and my sister to watch a film called 'All Dogs Go To Heaven' :) (GOOGLE IT!)

Q. What’s your favourite Christmas food?
How to even answer this!? Christmas food is my fave food! The only thing I'll say I detest is brussles. 
Hope you enjoyed! I tag all my readers! Leave your links below and I'll be sure to take a look!
Merry Christmas (nearly!)

Say hello to our new addition!


I know this is a very long overdue post! But I wanted to post something for you all and here it is! It's a very special post as I wanted to introduce my lovely followers to the new addition to mine and my boyfriend's house! 

Everyone, I'd like you to meet our Rabbit Alfie. 
I know some people may think I'm sad or whatever, but to me Alfie is like my baby. I'm literally like a new mum! He's a house rabbit so he just roams around our flat and everytime he moves I'm watching him like a hawk! He's so lovely, and he's warming nicely to me and my boyfriend. He's only 4 months old and I can tell you he certainly loves his food! He loves cuddles and play time. 

So here you go! I hope you enjoyed the post, I literally am in love with him! And feel free to tell me I'm sad! I know I might be a little bit! Anyway, I'll leave you with some more pictures.

Speak to you all soon, 

Emily x

Guilty Lush Purchase - The Lip Scrub

So todays a cheeky blog post. Recently, I've been on a tight budget and in my defense, I've been rather well on putting a limit on how much I've been spending on money beauty/fashion wise. But yesterday, I was fed up with work, had been having athsma/panic attacks and I was generally a bit meh, so I thought why not. was still rather well behaved, but I did cave and buy an item I've had my eye on for a while. 

Ever since LUSH brought out the lip scrubs I've been after it for a long time, but for £5.25 I always put it off, but yesterday (even if after a strong push from Stacey!) I purchased one. In Bubblegum. And it's the best thing I have done. It's amazing! Literally!

It feels so good after scrubbing away and it's also got an amazing taste. Whilst there, the adviser also made me try their limited edition one, which is Popcorn with a sweet and salty taste, it was nice, but not as nice as bubble gum. I would like to get this before it ends! 

Have you ever tried the lip scrubs? What do you think? Worth the money or are they a bit steep?

The Move So Far...& I've reached 40!

 So today's post is about how my recent move is going, it's a long process! As I'm sure you're aware, my and my boyfriend are doing up a flat and will be moving into it, him first, me splitting my time between there and my family home!

Can I just say, I did not know how long this process would be! Yesterday we finished painting the bathroom, laid the kitchen floor and brought a few kitchen appliances such as toaster and kettle! I'm loving picking out items for our little home, it's true when they say there is nothing than working hard to make the perfect home, especially for the first time! We're not rushing into moving in, as we have places to stay until then and we'd rather get all things decorated and move when we're both off for two weeks in a couple of weeks time. We've had to cancel our holiday which we was rather looking forward too, but we decided that we'd rather spend the money and time moving and making it how we want. The floor isn't perfect or the richest of materials, but we like it. 

Family and friends have been so generous! His mum brought us one of those mini ovens with the hobs on top until we can buy a proper cooker, which will be next pay day, my mum & dad brought us a grill, tea towels and a dinner plate set. We (well I) almost cried with emotion at how kind people were being. His friend brought us a rather strange present, which would you believe turned out to be a life saver! He brought us a box of cleaning supplies, now I mean BULK buy of cleaning supplies, from Mr Muscle to Fairy liquid, we have it all, it must have coast a fortune, and it's filled our cupboard to the brim! We're sorted for a while! It's all been a bit overwhelming actually. Going through old things and chucking things out, it's strange! And when people say it's expensive they're not joking! I've spent nearly £300 in the last few days. Now £145 on a TV license?! Really?! There's never anything good on?! But still, it's done for a year :).

At this current time, I'm off to work and he's starting the kitchen. I'm going to keep you updated regularly  and seeing as i'm lacking on the beauty front, I'll make that up asap when I'm all settled. 

ALSO! I just wanted to say thank you for helping me reach over 40 followers this week! This has amazed me, even though it's a small number to some, to me it's amazing! Thank you!!

Lots of love,

Celebration Spending Spree (On a budget!)

Hello! Odd title I know! But as you may know I'm on a very tight budget for the next few months! So today I went shopping with my boyfriend to buy some new clothes and stuff for our new flat! We ended up having a spot of lunch, chose the colours we wanted for each room and brought the odd thing here or there! I will do a collective haul at the end of the week as we're going out again wednesday! Obviously I can't do the big items such as the sofa ect, but will do a house tour when we're all moved in, or should I say him. I'm going to split my time between there and my house with my parents, moving in after Christmas.

Anyway, without boring you here's what I brought. In all I spent about £40 which is good for me! It's a mixture of everything from clothes to christmas presents (Like i said, I'll do the household things later on if you do want to see it!).
(I apologize for the poor pictures again, but I'm having to use my phone for now!)

Peter Pan Peplem Top 
New Look

Pink Blazer

Imi Pointed Shoes

Black Cardi
PS Playsuit

Various Christmas Presents
From Poundland, Primark and H&M
£1-3 (Will do a post about these later on!)
Beauty Purchases
£1 Obviously!
(Once again, will review these later on!)

So there you go, that's the most I've spent for a while, it's not alot I know, but like I said, I'm save save save at this moment in time! If you have any questions just drop me or comment, email or tweet :)

Lots of Love, Emily x

Living In A Fantasy

Hello! Excuse my lack of blogging lately, but I've been super busy and trying to keep my whole life in order, which I'll admit is a struggle at this moment in time! Anyway, I have some super exciting news! As you may know or may not as the case may be, me and my boyfriend have just secured a flat! It's nothing fancy or special, just your bog standard flat! Which means, that I'm moving out of my family home! I'm staying at my home until Christmas, while my boyfriend settles in, and I'm saving up some more money and moving after, although I'll move in slowly. I'll be very busy as you can imagine and today I took a very mature step and went shopping for household items! I have some really interesting blog posts coming soon, including a haul, a christmas gift list & ideas of what to get people. I'm planning on doing some halloween posts to aswell as some other ideas flowing! I'm sorry I haven't been around much, at all lately to be honest, but I'm back up :) so expect to be floored with blog posts and might even include the odd one or two about moving!

Thanks for sticking with me, Emily xx

October - Blogger Of The Month!

Hello! So today is the first day of my 'Blogger of the month!' segment! And this week it's Bex at Futures. Now, there are several reasons as to why I've selected Bex this month and one of them is obviously because I adore her blog and she updates reguarly, not to mention she has a beautiful baby boy, but also, this week Bex annouced that she was in fact ENGAGED! I've decided to post this as a sort of 'congratulations' post, as I'm very happy for her! I've only recently started talking to Bex but I feel like I've found someone to talk to when I need someone. She's lovely, kind and considerate and this news couldn't happen to someone nicer!

So I hope you'll join me in congratulating her and will go and give her blog a look and a follow! Once again Congratualtions and wish you all the best for the future!


Wednesday, 26 September 2012

If you've read the newspapers lately then you'll have read about the horrific events involving two police officers who were killed in a set up attack. Now, with it being a sensitive time for the police force was it the right time for a respected member of the conservative party to turn around and so publicly insult them? My guess is no!

'Pleb' is known in the dictionary as an insult to say, in simple terms the lowest of the low. Now, my question is, with the police not only dealing with a personal tragedy but also having to deal with cut backs, what gives this certain individual to right to give these hard working officers such a low status and rough time? Because my bet is, if his bike went missing, he'd be the first to call in the police? Correct me if I'm wrong?

As a person who has a police member in my family, I don't think they quite realize how much it hits home when you hear of a police officer being killed, all you can think is 'that could of been my brother!'. All im trying to get across here, is when people are doing the job they're suppose to be doing, what gives people the right to throw insults and abuse at them? Nothing does, even on the worst day you could be having, all I have to say is I'd like to see anyone who thinks they could do a better job try and do so!

As much as this may be biased I am a person to admit when I'm wrong. I'm not saying the police are angels, take the 1989 Hillsbrough disaster for example, the cover up and shaming the dead for all those years was wrong, and being a Liverpool fan I was disgusted, but what needs to be said is that it was a small minority of the entire UK police force involved, so why tarnish everyone with the same brush, should we do the same to MPs? No, we'd be scrutinized!

But what makes what happened to these officers worse? People taking to social media sites such as Facebook and twitter to praise, yes PRAISE the killer! It once again raises the question of 'Is social media freedom of speech or is it just plain abuse', I know what my view is! To slate the police is one thing, but to congratulate someone on killing them? That is just vile! As many people see it, are social network sites in need of being monitored more And should the offending 'trolls' as they're known be prosecuted? Or does that go against their human rights? Baring in mind those PC's lost there's the moment they were shot and blown up? Theres something to think about.

So I'll leave you with a question? I firmly believe in the police and what they do, and I believe you should ce able to do your job without being attacked and abused, but how many actually agree with me?

That's all, Emily.

I owe you an apology!

Hello all!
I have to make an apology to all my beautiful readers! I haven't been blogging very much this past month which upsets me more than I can describe! I could come up with every excuse under the sun but instead I'm going to be honest with you about why I've been a bit 'absent'. I'd love up tell you it's because I've been doing something amazing and exciting but it's not, well not the whole of why I haven't blogged is anyway!

First off, at the start of the month I went into a depressive state, I'd failed my driving test, didn't get 4 jobs of gone for and watched all my friends prepare to go to Uni. Now as self centered this must sound, I Felt jealous! I didn't want to go to Uni, never have if I'm honest, but I got that typical feeling of I want to do something with my life. It just felt like I was sinking and nothing could pull me out of the failure that I saw my life!

Nothing was working to make me feel better about things, not even the birth of my boyfriends niece, if anything it made me worse, watching another person be happy when your anything but happy! Now I'm not a selfish person I was happy for them! But I just wished something would go right for me, so after a long chat with my mum and with my boyfriend aswell I decided to stop feeling so sorry for myself and do something!

The first step? Well after thinking about what made me unhappy, I wrote a list of what I wanted to change in my life, no matter how small it was! It was a struggle to accept that I was unhappy but once I'd thought and discussed I instantly started to feel better! I won't start going into detail about my list as its quite personal to me, but I'll keep you informed!

I've already taken the steps to complete 4 out of the 10 things I wrote down which on brief overview is arranging to see a flat next week with my boyfriend, going to a job interview, with a company who I hope will see my potential, stated a diet and booked my driving test! I realized that no one could make me happy until I'm happy with myself and once again I'll be honest, without my blog and lovely followers I don't think id ever have come out of my slump. But truth is I now know its ok not to feel ok for a while! Because I'll always have people around me who support me.

I can't thank those who have helped me enough, from those close to me, to the companies giving me a chance to show my skills and also, you my followers, life has bumps in The road but with people around you, it's a smother ride (sorry for the cheese!)

Thanks for reading, I'll post more soon, cause I'm back!!

Much love, Emily xxxx

MUA Mascara Review

(I've been meaning to post this for a while!)

I recently purchased this mascara and i'll be honest I wasn't expecting much! But I have to say I was rather impressed, it clearly defined my lashes as you can see from above, my eyelashes don't normally like to look 'full and luscious!' but this mascara came close. I'm not going to lie, it's not as good as some of the higher end products, but it's very good for the price you pay. It also gives a full colour. For a £1 this is something I will be repurchasing, and it's perfect for a student on a budget! It also comes off as easily as it is applied! I would recommend this to anyone!
