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
