I am pretty sure the way to any girl’s heart is little packages wrapped up with a bow, and luckily for me, my nearest and dearest know this little fact of life, so I ended up with quite the collection for Christmas, so I thought I would do a little Jo Malone haul.
When I was around 13, I took the plunge and signed up to a Boots advantage card, I took such pride in having a card that had my name on it, even though it just never got used. My mum and Sister both had them and swore by them, but I never saw the appeal (maybe because I was 13 and had no money!) But for the past few years I have been going along to the Christmas points evenings at Boots in Brookfield, and couldn’t believe the amazing offer, basically every time you spent £60, you got £12 worth of points back. So I knew I would be going back this year to top up my make up, and buy some presents for others.
I’m sure I have mentioned maybe once or twice my love for lush, so as soon as I walked past the Stratford store this week and spied the new Christmas collection I knew I had a few purchases to make. So I bought 7 things altogether, a mixture of ones I have tried before and some new ones to review. I also finally have a use for my cute little wire baskets from H&M! I like how they are easy to get to, and they just fill my room with that iconic lush smell.

Well it’s accidentally been
a little quite a while since I have last posted, so sorry about that! But I have been trying to prepare for my mini break and just enjoying London in the Winter 🙂 And what better way to throw myself back in than with a post on Christmas! It’s only 54 days until my favourite time of year, so I thought I would do a top 5 stocking fillers, as there is always secret santa’s to buy for, and family members wondering what you want so I’m going to make that job so much easier.
So it is finally September, which means some of you are going to be making one of the biggest leaps in your life, and start University. I graduated this year with a 1st class BA Hons in Marketing with Advertising, so I know how you are all feeling now; a mixture of excitement and nervousness about how it is all going to go. So I have decided to try and do a weekly feature about how to survive university, and give you some useful tips that helped me obtain my first class degree.
One of the most personal things to a girl is the contents of her bag, it can tell you a lot about their character and give you a small insight to their lives. I have decided to do my own ‘whats in my bag’ as I’m new to blogging and it seems to be a good introduction.
Matt and I have had a lot to celebrate lately, we both got new jobs, I graduated university with a first class honours, we have just started our search for our first home together, we welcomed our beautiful baby niece into the world and Matt even published his first book! So it’s been a very busy year already, and we needed a date night to just spend sometime together. We decided that we wanted to go to one of our favourites, Miller & Carter for our evening.
