19th Birthday |

Hello lovelies, 
Yesterday was my 19th birthday and I had the best day. I thought I would tell you all about the day and just document this little memory with you all. Now on Friday I will be doing a what I got for my birthday post, I just need to take pictures of everything.

I started the day by getting up super early to get ready for work. I did some pretty good wings and that put me in the best mood for the day. It was only my birthday, it was the day I finally got to see chummy again. Now after a nice little reunion in the middle of the supermarket me and chummy went and had some chummy time before work. It was just so nice to have my best friend back after such a bad weekend. My manager got me a card which had a cut little badge on it, the women I work with got me a present and I just felt so happy to have my partner in crumbs back with me.

Now work was actually so much fun, the time went so quickly and I got to spend my day with such a good bunch. Now after work I went home and got ready. Me, chummy and L had all planned to go gown the pub for a little drink and maybe some lunch. Spending a few hours with the two people I love the most what just what I needed. It was just so good to sit and chat for a few hours, time just the three of us. Me and chummy had planned a little snack for later in the evening, that meant we just had a light snack at the pub. 

Dinner was lovely but L went to the gym, that meant chummy time started again. That just meant the two of us laying on my bed watching TV. Now I also showed my mum the gifts chummy got me, now this will be a little sneak peak of what I got but I'm just to excited to wait. This is what chummy got me.......

We went out to get KFC and then came back to watch tattoo fixers. Now we actually missed most of it because L called because there was a massive spider in his room. I felt for the boy but it was just a little funny. 

Now I has the most wonderful day. it was so nice to have people around me to celebrate my birthday with me. That may have been a rather short post but on Friday I'll be showing you what I got for my birthday and I got some really wonderful gifts from people.

Shopping With Mum | Haul

Hello lovelies,
On wednesday I had a lovely shopping day with my mum. We never have nice little shopping days like this anymore and it was nice to just spend some quality time with her. I managed to pick up a few things that I've been after for a while, below is a little picture of the bits I got. Now I'll be going through everything to let you know where you can get them from.

Finding Dory top | Primark £6
I'm going to see finding dory next week and I wanted to go themed. I saw this online and I've been desperate to get my hands on it. This is a little big for me but I still got the size down from what I normally get. I like tops like this to be quite roomy.

Beauty and the beast pyjamas | Primark £10
After seeing them on instagram, I instantly fell in love. You will all be aware that beauty and the beast is my faovutie Disney film. I just needed these in my wardrobe. Before I was in an 18-20 but now I manage to fit into the 14-16's. I was thrilled. Now these are just so cute, under this picture I popped a little image of the print on the trousers.

Belle bag charms | Disney store £5.99
I saw these on instagram a while ago and have been searching for them ever since. I was in Disney store on my own and I ran to these. Its all my faouvrtie characters and they are just so cute. I have chip on the zip on my purse now.

Pink purse | New look £12.99
My aunt got me a gift voucher from new look and there wasn't anything I really wanted. I've needed a new purse for a while now I really love this one and its got a lot of space for my cards. All my other purses only have about 4 card slots but my purse is more plastic than paper now days.

Pale blue purse | New look £9.99
Another purse and out of the two this one is my favourite. The front is a big pocket and it holds my phone perfectly. It has a lot of space for cards and this is actually very good instead of a clutch for when I go out.

Chip plastic cup | £4.50
We all know my beauty and the beast obsession. I've been after the chip mug for years, I can't get it in the UK but I saw this plastic one and ran to it. Like literally ran. Its just so cute. Now I won't drink from it, its purely for display at the moment

Mad hatter sign | Primark £2/3
Another little obsession of mine is alice in wonderland. I saw these on instagram and needed to get them. The first is a lovely arrow that says mad hatter tea party. The second one is my faouvrite. I love the glass designs like this and I just think its so pretty.

Finding Dory socks | £2.50
I needed to go all out for finding Dory. I couldn't resit these cute little trainer socks. They are perfect because I will be wearing my minnie mouse vans. 

Maybelline lash sensational luscious | Boots £7.99
I wanted to try this one for a while. I have the regular one but I wanted to see if it makes my lashes look any better. After trying it, I love it. It may not be waterproof but it make my lashes look a lot fuller and I love it.

Foundation, powder, eye liner and concealer | Boots £?????
Im not going to do a massive thing for the next bits. You all know these are just my normal make up products. 

Maybelline vivd matte liquid | Berry boost | Boots £4.99
I have a few of these and I fell in love with this shade. I love a dark lip and this just called out to me.

Mickey mouse water bottle | Disney store £2.98
I wanted a good bottle for the gym and this was just so cute and also in a sale. I would say it holds about 750ml so its perfect for a hot zumba class.

That was everything I got from this little shopping trip with mum. I had such a lovely day and got everything I wanted. I can't wait to have more days like this with my mum.

Monsters Inc Tsum Tsums |

Hello lovelies, 
Last week the monsters inc tsum tsums were released and I was lucky enough to get all the collection that was released. In the UK this is the full set is what I have here but I am desperate to get Celia and monster boo.

Roz |
I love Roz in the film and her tsum tsum doesn't disappoint. The glasses are perfect and I love her hair. The have the colours just right for her and she is just what I imagined.

Mike |
The thing that make me rather happy about this one is that he has his little horns. I thought they may have missed that little detail off but I was so happy to see they had added them.

Fungus |
He disappoints me a little if I'm honest. In the film he's red not orange and it just really bugs me. I just don't get why they couldn't make him red. But I do love his little monster hat.

Randal |
They have got the detailing just right on him. The colour is perfect and I love the look that he has on his face.

Boo |
My favourite character and they got her just right. The little ponytails are perfect and it is just such a cute tsum tsum.

Sully |
Sully is the one that I'm most impressed with if I'm honest. They have got his colour just right, his horns and also the little purple spikes going down his back. I love that they actually put his purple spots on him.

Well those are the monsters inc tsum tsums. I'm on the hunt now for the American exclusives.

What Happened Last Week | 4th-10th July

Hello lovelies,
Last week was weird for me. Near the end of the week anxiety hit me very hard. I felt completely lost, alone and just at a bit of a loss of what I was doing. I had a little pick me up but then just came crashing right back down again. Anyway lets go through the build up of this overly bad week shall we?

Monday 4th |
I had a rather lovely day off on Monday. On Monday I decide to have my whole bedroom out. I regretted that the minute my room was covered I'm my pointless possessions. On the other hand my dads friend popped round with her dog, that meant I got some cuddles with the most adorable little dog in the world.

Tuesday 5th |
Tsum Tsum Tuesday arrived and I woke up super early to try and get the new monsters inc collection. Luckily chummy managed to get them all for us online. They looked like the cutest ones yet and for the rest of the day I was just so happy that she managed to get them. I had work in the evening and it was an okay shift, not the worst but not the best. Oh go that's what happened. I joined the gym. Yeah have a laugh, I'm giggling myself at that little fact. Basically I joined because I want to do zumba and L and chummy have done some light persuading over the last few weeks. Oh and I went shopping to get gym clothes.

Wednesday 6th |
I had another day off on Wednesday and I cant actually remember what I did. That's quite weird but I just remember it being a bit of a blur. I did go to zumba though in the evening. I was so scared to go bur I took myself along to the zumba class, saw my sister there which was great but I actually enjoyed it. I came home and felt like I was going to die after it but then I felt so good for doing it. I even told chummy that we would be going again the next day.

Thursday 7th |
I was up early getting ready for a zumba class. I really enjoyed it again, to be fair I used to love it at school and I'm so happy I've started doing it again. I'm not to sure what I did the rest of the day. I don't think I had work and I cant actually think of what I did. I think I need to start writing these everyday to make sure I don't miss anything out.

Friday 8th |
PAYDAY!!!!! That meant I was a little less poor. I had work at 10 and it wasn't the best. I spent my morning feeling really anxious and everyone was like oh you just missing chummy. No. Yes I like work when shes there but I was just feeling really anxious, my manager told me that chummy was working a late on the day I ask if we could both do earlie's. Everyone was just getting on my nerves. I had a gym introduction at 6 so I went down there and got that done. I just wanted my friends. I felt so upset all day and the only people I wanted weren't with me. I just needed them. Anyway I just took myself to bed at around 8pm and slept for so long.

Saturday 9th |
The day started out better than how it ended. I had a full day at work with chummy. I don't get full days but I was looking forward to it. The day was fine until it was just me and chummy. The place was a mess, the dishwasher was leaking and we had both had enough, I even got to a point where I was going to just walk out. Now I didn't but I decided I wanted a night out and felt a bit bad but chummy agreed. That meant after work she waited for me to run into the house, pop some clothes on and grab a load of alcohol. We went out clubbing and I actually had such a fun night. Just me and chummy and a lot of drinks. 

Sunday 10th |
I had work at 1 and I was drained. Its like all my energy had just gone. I basically went to work and came home then crashed out at like 8.

So that was the week. wasn't the most exciting but my life never is usually.

I've Joined The Gym! |

Hello lovelies, 
If you saw yesterdays post or you follow me on social media, well you'll probably know already. For those who don't, I've joined a gym. Yes. Me. I've joined the one place I said I never would do. Now I will be going into the reasons why but I think you can guess, I mean I haven't done it to spend money each month. If you follow me on instagram then you will have probably seen this picture of me looking a bit of a state before and after my class.

Weight loss |
At the start of the year I lost around 3stone. Now I was so proud of myself and I managed that all on my own. Now over the last few months I've found that because I'm spending a lot of time with people who just don't care about my size, well that's meant a few more trips to MacDonald's and less time exercising. I would like to get down to 12stone. I'm 14stone 13lb's currently so that means I've got a bit of work to do before I can get down to that.

Confidence |
My confidence is rather low around new people. The only people I really feel comfortable around are a few people at work, my family, chummy and L. I'm terrified to go into the actual gym. I'm just so conscious that someone will laugh, I just need to push through that because my theory is that if I can feel confident and comfortable whilst I'm sweaty in a gym with people a lot smaller than me, well my confidence with go up a lot. 

Social |
I think it may be a good way for me to meet new people. Granted most of my gym sessions will be with chummy but I might meet some new people and that means that I can gain a few new gym buddies. 

That's about it to be honest. I won't lie to you....I'm scared. Of course I am. I feel a lot more comfortable at the minute because I have my best friend by my side for moral support. I've now been to two Zumba classes and I actually really love them. Chummy was a little shocked when I said I was annoyed that I couldn't make the Saturday class. Now I haven't been in the actual gym bit yet but I have to pop down there today to be shown how to use the equipment. Even if I just do two Zumba classes a week then I've already made my money back.

Would you lie with me and just forget the world? |

Hello lovelies,
If you know the what song my title is from then well done, its one of my favourite songs. Now the song is probably about something completely different but its those lyrics that stuck out for me last week. I've always loved this song but this song popped into my head on Saturday night.

Basically it was me, chummy and L all laying on her bed chatting. Now L asked if we ever just lay down with our eyes closed while looking at a light. Sounds a bit weird but he said to try it. Now I was a little hyper because when I'm sleepy I get more energetic for some reason, this may have just been a thing to try and get me to calm now. It was just me, L and chummy laying on her bed eyes closed and chatting. It was the best feeling. It's like I could say anything, granted I can say anything around them but with your eyes closed you just feel more free to speak whats on your mind. I found that I calmed down a little as well. My heart rate slowed down a bit and it was pure bliss.

Chummy fell asleep on and off so effectively it was chummy asleep and me and L chatting while laying on a bed with our eyes closed. Now I can see why he does it, its the most blissful thing and so relaxing. Now the title? Well I was just laying there with two people who are just so real. Like they are genuinely the nicest people and having that time in that moment helped me forget the world for a bit. Like it was the three of us and that was it. For a moment it was like everything else that stressed me out wasn't important anymore.

When I was younger I would lay in the garden on a sunny day, looking at the clouds watching the clouds drift past. It was the most relaxed moment and I just felt like that again. For me it was the perfect way to de-stress after the week. There's been a lot going on in my head lately, most of the stuff I wont share with anyone and that's fine. Its just nice to be able to just lay down and forget the world for a little bit. 

It seems like lately all my favourite little moments aren't paid for. My favourite moments are the ones where I'm with the ones I love the most. Just doing the simplest of things, peoples time is far more valuable to me than anything else. 

Anyway that was just a little post of me thinking out loud again.

Gym Clothing Haul |

Hello lovelies,
Today I have a little haul for you. The title may have confused you all, me buying gym clothes. How absurd?! Now I've done the one thing I never thought I would do. I've joined the gym. I've been toying with the idea of it for few months and yesterday I joined it. I was so scared but I think I'll do a separate post about why I've joined it.

Anyway I can't rock up to the gym naked, I just dont have the body or the confidence for that. Plus my friend goes to the gym and he's already accidentally seen my mother naked through frosted glass, thats bad enough so I'll be keeping my clothes on at the gym to save blinding the boy with my wobbly bits.

Primark seems my best option for gym clothes, its in-expensive and its a start. I only had stuff from last time I lost weight and thats far to big, I was 3 stone heavier then.

Peach crop top | £3.50
I know some slimmer women would wear just this and some shorts. I wont be doing this. This will basically be like my sports bra. I just prefer this and my bra wont really support a lot of wobbling around. 

Peach mesh crop top £5 |
Out of the two this one is my favourite. Its just a bit more supported and my boobs stay in place even with a lot of wobbling around. This one is also slightly more comfortable.

Navy top | £2
This wasnt in the sports section but I wanted a top with sleeves to wear. Also I wanted a dark colour because then if I get sweaty it might not notice as much. 

Peach workout T-shirt | £4
 This one was in the sports section and its the lightest material. Its really comfy and I also really love the colour.

Black stretch leggings | £7
I had jogging bottoms but I dont really like them, I just prefer skin tight trousers for exercise. Granted they will make my legs look huge but I find it easier and more comfortable to work out in leggings.

Neon pink trainers | £12
I know these aren't the best looking shoes but I needed a pair just for now. These are super comfy and light are so light. Im sure they will make exercise a bit more bearable.

So theres a mini haul for you. I know its not branded stuff but I dont see the point in spending a lot of money on things that you're going to sweat in. Anyway if you're reading this at like 8pm then I'll be sweating in a Zumba class trying not to die of embarrassment. This is what it all looks like on.

Everyday Make Up |

Hello lovelies, 
I may not be the prettiest button in the box but I wanted to do more beauty and make up posts. I used to hate make up but now, well now I love it. It gives me a little more confident and makes me feel pretty. Today I wanted to do a everyday make up routine for you. This is what I do for work and just popping to the shops. 

So First I start with the blank canvas which is pretty bad today. I'm not saying I'm a beauty queen normally, far from it. Its just when I took the photo for this I had a lot of spots. Therefore I had a lot more work to do.

I start my base which is my foundation. I use the maybelline dream satin liquid in shade 1, natural ivory. This has an SPF of 13 so it give a little bit of protection as well. Sometimes I think this is a little to dark for me but its the lightest shade they do. I use two pumps of this and then just dot it all over my face.

I then use my real techniques buffing brush to blend it all in. I do this for a few minutes until I'm happy that I have a good coverage for my base.

I then use my maybelline fit me concealer. This is the one I usually use but they didn't have the shade I needed. This is a little to dark for me but for now it will do. 

I use this to cover any spots, blemishes, the dark circles under my eyes and around my nose. I then use my real techniques contour brush. I don't contour and I find this brush is perfect for me concealer. I use the brush to gently dab the concealer and then buff it slightly. I don't want to drag it from the places that I've put it.

As you can see my power is running low, anyway I use the maybelline fit me powder in shade 220. I use my real techniques blush brush to apply it. Luckily I've got in the habit of putting it on, a few times forgetting it made me paranoid.

Eyeshadow next and I use the maybelline nudes palette. I cover my eyelids with this shade here. I dust that over it to make sure they are completely covered.

I then use this shade to just go in the outer corner crease of my eye. I then take my deluxe shadow brush and blend it in. 

My eyes feel naked without eyeliner now days. I like to do a thick eyeliner because I think it makes my eyes look just a little bit more defined and puts more focus on them. If I'm in a rush I'll leave it how it is but normally I add nice little flicks. Now its taken me months to get my flicks how I like them, even now there's a lot of eye make up remover and cotton buds to perfect them some days.

Now onto mascara. I've been using the rimmel volume colourist lash tint. I think its worked a little bit but I find this one applies pretty well. Sometimes I will use my lash sensational.

I add a little bit of my Ted Baker blusher to my cheeks, now normally I have natural redness to my cheeks because if I pick up a pace ever so slightly, well I turn the shade of a strawberry. 

I then go to my lips. I use the nivea milk and honey lip balm, I get quite dry lips so I use this to keep my lips from drying. I then use the Tanya Burr lip gloss in the shade aurora.

So that's my finished look. I wont be winning any prizes for make up or beauty but I like to think I make myself look slightly better than my non make up state. I did a little before and after picture. I love how a few months ago none of you even knew what I looked like, I never thought I would upload pictures of myself let alone ones with no make up. Anyway here's a before an after. I actually think make up thins my face out just a tad, not sure why. Well I hope you enjoyed that post. Let me know in the comments if you'd like to see more like this.
