I'm Not Dead!

Eek! No post for 20 days, what am I playing at?

Oops, looks like those days just flew past! For 6 of them, I was living the high life in Germany and the rest catching up on sleep and adjusting back to the school routine!

I WILL post this weekend with some holiday snaps or spring wardrobe!

germany 2013

ohmygoodness! I'm so excited! A week today, I will be sat in Manchester Airport munching on a packet of crisps waiting to be called for my flight to Munich in Germany!

Next Friday, I am going on a school trip to Germany with some of my closest friends and its guaranteed to be a wonderful experience; the history based trip will take us from Munich to Nuremberg and finally to Berlin over 5 action-packed days. I'm unbelievably excited and can't wait to jump on the plane and go on a much deserved break!

I will return to dreary England next Wednesday and will follow with snaps from my trip abroad! Have a lovely week and I will try and squeeze a post in this weekend inbetween packing...but no promises!

Everybody loves that moment when they get to the till in a shop and realise an item they really loved is reduced to something extremely cheap. Alternatively, it is just as amazing when you spot bargains in expensive (or cheap shops). I'm going to share with you a couple of the bargains I picked up when I went shopping this morning...

I was visiting the Primark home section this morning to see what lovely things I could get to furnish my newly decorated bedroom and I came across this gorgeous candle in the flavour Raspberry and Papaya. It smells absolutely amazing and for such a big tin it was a bargain at only £2! I can't wait to have this burning in my room!

This eyeshadow is from Topshop and I found it in the sale for £1 (bargain or what?!) It's a very deep purple and you need hardly any to get a strongly pigmented colour. I think it's worth the money as I can't wait to start wearing it for special occasions when I want a dramatic eye! It look perfect with lashings of balck Benefit BadGal mascara.

This cardigan from Primark stunned my mum and me when we got to customer services for an exchange and realised this cardigan was only £2 because it was end of line! This is a fantastic find as I'm going to Germany in 2 weeks and desperately need to stock up on winter knits. It's great that all these once expensive knits have been reduced in perfect timing for when I need them most!

This long sleeved top is another purchase for my trip to Berlin/Munich/Nuremberg during February half term. its essential to have lots of thin layers and I bought a couple of these tops from Primark at a cheap £3 per top. They are fab to wear underneath bulky jumpers and cardigans and are a good insulation layer.

Obviously when you travel abroad you can't take massive bottles of shampoo/conditioner/hairspray/perfume/body lotion etc so these travel size bottles from Primark are a God send at £1 for 2 big 100ml and 1 smaller 50ml one. it also comes with a dinky funnel to carefully put your products into the bottles. The pack of stickers makes it easy to know what's what.

So there we have it- my bargain buys from today! I love hunting out for jems in shops for a minimal'll probably find me out shopping next weekend for some more!

See you soon,
