Well boy did I miss a trick!!

Hey Ladies,

So today/yesterday (or whenever depending when you're laying eyes on this) is Valentines day & a few days ago my lovely boyfriend text me asking me what I would like for this day of love, my answer? ... 'Don't buy me anything, its a corporate scheme & I refuse to participate in it!'

I really can't stand valentines day, if you're in love (which I currently am, it changes day to day I find or correlates directly to number of cups of tea a day I get made) I think you should tell that person everyday how much they mean to you & that you love them & shouldn't need an excuse for just saying it once a year.

Being the good boy he is, I got nothing!

Well when I was doing some browsing today I changed my mind!

Here are few of the pieces of jewellery that will do nicely for me!!


Dior Oui Ring in white gold - £560
I actually think its a great price as its white gold, a diamond & Dior! I did text my boyfriend with a pic saying I want this to be my engagement ring! Haha I think I proposed to myself on Valentines day, how sad! But whilst I'm all for diamonds I think a ring that says 'YES' makes a brilliant engagement ring & is more unique, we can add more diamonds with the wedding band! :)

Dior Gold Charms Necklace - £145
I think this is really cute & i'm not the biggest wearer of gold but I could wear this as its not too much, the price is excellent as well but i'm guessing not real gold! I can live with that! I'm thinking 1st year anniversary! haha!! (I'm glad the bf's not reading this, he'd be shitting himself at me planning out our lives without him knowing)


Folli Follie Heart4Heart necklace - &euro85




You kind of get 2 for 1 with this necklace as it unhooks to 4 little hearts which is so precious! I wants this one for my birthday! haha! or a puppy, oh heck we're living in a dream world here i'll have both! haha!!

Anyway those are a few of my lusting items at the moment, I am happily going to say this is my last post before I head to spain to see my dog ... & my mum on Tuesday & I cannot wait, a whole week off with my boyfriend & dog. Plus i've planned a surprise for my boyfriend as its his birthday when we're out there, although i probably wont have time to post on here or my YouTube I am planning to do my week in 10 mins & maybe a day in the life on our little adventure for his surprise. Let me know if you're interested & I shall do it & subscribe to see it! I wont be editing & uploading it/them whilst i'm away but will upon my return!

Hope you've all been well & have a fantastique week I have no doubt I will, i'll be like a kid on Christmas Eve tomorrow night & wont get a wink of sleep!

Thanks for reading
See you soon (with a tan i hope)

I Have A Confession!

Hey Ladies,

My confession? I am the worst Aussie Angel ever!!

My apologies to Aussie for not mentioning them & my Angel status since it began, I was always too busy to write about it & didn't have enough notice to attend one of their get togethers with the type of job i had. Thankfully I lost my job so was able to attend one!! ... well kind of! (more at a later date)

Anyway I wanted to mention my favorite Aussie product, mainly because i just used it in the shower. It is the classic 3 minute miracle, smells amazing, really cheap & makes the hair so soft & manageable.


I have used the original one since i was a teenager as it was so affordable & I haven't really changed my deep conditioner with the addition of money to my life so now it seems extra cheap and also Aussie are on offer pretty much most of the time in either Boots or Superdrug in the UK so extra barginlicious! I have recently been using the frizz remedy & reconstructor versions as Aussie very kindly sent me them after I couldn't make it to the treasure hunt. Which don't assume is why I'm reviewing it, i literally have just started using the ones they sent me as i already had some as i always do for when my hair needs a boost of softness.

What I love this product isn't just the fact that it makes my hair incredibly soft, I used to use a Fudge deep conditioner which was about £12 & did the same job as the Aussie one except you get less about 100mls & it costs more! The aussie one is about £4.50 for 250ml. I love the packaging which is so easy to use in the shower & when you're nearing the end of the bottle there's no smacking it on your palm to the top to get it all out as its dispensed at the bottom, plus it makes your hair smell divine & washes out so easily so there's no residue! I may stray away at times with new deep conditioners but i always return to this. I haven't tried that many other Aussie products I have to admit i'd like to try their leave in conditioner & hair sprays which will be on my list when my current products run out.

Are you a cheap hair care fan or go for luxury? Or have tried any of the Aussie products, I doubt many of you haven't tried the 3 minute miracle, my mum only discovered it a couple of years ago, i actually laughed in her face that she hadn't tried it before!!

Hope you're all well, my life's a bit mental & stressful at the moment but i'm off to Spain to see my dog in 2 weeks with my boyfriend & boy do we need the break! but I'm staying positive & getting through it without too many tears!

See you soon.
