"Get Your Freak On" TAG.

I read this tag online when I was stalking through a couple of blogs... The posts were written so long ago but I enjoyed reading them so I thought "why not!" I am going to do that. I tag Jodie to also fill this out and anyone else who reads this post to do it as well! :)

Questions!


#1. What's a nickname only your family calls you?

My family call Megz - with a Z. I don't know why! Every birthday card, Christmas card, or anything addressed to me that's what my mums always written - I think she thinks its hip to spell it with a Z as uppose to an S, I'm not sure! My brother, Graham, also calls me Smegs. 

#2. What's a weird habit of yours?

A weird habit...? Does being addicted to Netflix count? Ha ha. I quite often play with my nose stud - I do it without realizing so it must be a habit, and it probably looks quite weird!

#3. Do you have any weird phobias?

I am terrified of bees, wasps and I really hate the dentist!

#4. What's a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you're alone?

There's so many! Anything Queen or Disney gets me in a good mood... Lately I've been loving Carwash from Sharks Tale...

#5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?

I have so many! I hate it when customers ask you 10,000 questions on a product and then just leave the shop. I hate it when its that horrible drizzly rain that gets you wet a pathetic amount. I hate it when my mum shouts TEAS READY and in reality its not ready for another fifteen minutes. I hate being wrong (I know that makes me sound spoilt but I really do hate it!), I hate plucking my eyebrows, and I hate learning to drive... Actually, come to think of it, I don't think those things aren't "peeves" I think they're just things I hate - oh well.

#6. What's one of your nervous habits?

Cracking my knuckles. During my driving test, which I failed, I just kept clicking them. Weird thing is I really hate it when other people do it!

#7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?

I've got a single bed! But I like to be closest to the wall.

#8. What was your first stuffed animal && it's name?

I had two! Persil, he was a white bear and he came free with a box of Persil washing powder! My family collected the coupons for me to get one! (I've still got him now!) And Midnight a black dog teddy which I chose from Toys'R'Us back in the day! I can remember picking him as clear as day - but he was alot fluffier back then!

#9. What's the drink you ALWAYS order at starbucks?

I'm more of a Café Nero or Costa girl! ...Banana & Caramel frappé from Nero and a Red Berry fruit cooler from Costa! (I may visit them a little bit too often because I work right by them both!)

#10. What's the beauty rule you preach.. but never ACTUALLY practice?

DON'T USE FACE WIPES!
(Then I get home and think oh fuck it one day won't hurt!)

#11. Which way do you face in the shower?

I face the shower - doesn't everybody??

#12. Do you have any 'weird' body 'skills'?

I sprained my wrist when I was in Primary School and now when I move it it clicks - I wouldn't call that a skill though! Its quite gross.

#13. What's your favorite 'comfort food'/food thats 'bad' but you love to eat it anyways?

Hmmmm... That's such a tough question. I love food. It'd probably be a dominoes because dominoes is really naughty and really expensive so getting one is a real treat!

#14. What's a phrase or exclamation you always say?

"You're cruising for a bruising" and its usually to Jodie, Jordan or Anna.

#15. Time to sleep- what are you ACTUALLY wearing?

M&M pajamas from M&M world... Comfiest things I ever did buy.



An old photo but I bloody love the Banana Frappe I mentioned earlier -
and now I want one! Daaaammmnit.

Strawberry Armpits & Coconut Hair.

I thought I would fill you guys in on my new goodies from The Body Shop. If you've read anything from my blog before you will know I absolutley love The Body Shop and everything they sell. Recently I, naughtily, treated myself to a new hair oil and a new deodorant. (Although I am very skint and probably shouldn't have bought them I told myself they were essentials!...And it is almost payday!) 

Rainforest Coconut Hair Oil
and Strawbery Deodrant.
The hair oil is lovely... Earlier on in the week I decided I would go all out and treat my hair to a good ol' pamper session. The oil is incredible and left my hair so soft and manageable! (I've even straightened my hair twice this week and I never straighten my hair!) It feels so refreshed and silky - I love it. I've been using it morning and evening before I brush my hair - and after I've washed it as well and I can already see a difference in the condition of my hair. Hair oils are usually on the pricier side of life but little devil only costs £7 which I thought was an absolute steal! It may be a new love of mine...


I also looove the strawberry deodorant... Which smells divine! (Oooh, divine, isn't that a posh word?) I find that this deodorant works wonders as well - it really does keep you smelly fruity and sweet all day! Which has been lovely during the recent burst of hot weather! Plus, who doesn't want to smell like a massive strawberry?? This product is also a bargain at only £4 - which is a good price if you think its like a perfume and deodorant in one! Its also made with all good things (like most, if not all, The Body Shop products) so it doesn't sting your freshly shaven pits!

I am happy with both of my new buys and think they're something everyone needs to try... Or maybe even must-have for summer...



Saturday Night Spoons.

Today I was called unexpectedly into work to run the day so I had a long ol' day ahead of me and after a late night running a girl guide event the night before working 9-6 was not sounding all that great! Especially on a Saturday... Oh well, just got to remind myself "think of pay day Megan!"
In the late afternoon Jodie came and met me at work with donuts (everybody loves donuts!) and she kept me and Christina company for a few hours. Christina and Jodie get along really well which I love! Don't you just love it when the people you love get along? I always feel I've made an achievement when you introduce two people who get along. *Just going to pat myself on the back - well done me!*



Anyway, after work me and Jode came back to mine and, like the old ladies we are becoming, we had a little gossip, a nap, a KFC and bed. Perfectó! Honestly, I love nothing more than nights in. (Again, I must be getting old!) I am looking forward to tomorrow, a day of Googlebox catch up, roast dinners and comfy pajamas. Hallelujah for Sundays.

Summer Adventures. #1


Today myself, Jodie, and Pete all headed out on a picnic. After a quick pit-stop for some nibbles we set off on our way to Slaughterford. Slaughterford is a tiny place (I don't know if its big enough to even call a village!) But its a tiny-weeny cute little place with only a handful of houses and loads of big fields and a little lake running through. Its just generally a really pretty place so we decided we would enjoy the afternoon with a chocolate finger and a gossip. 


I love just sitting in the sun and letting the time pass by, especially with a silly puppy to laugh at when hes too scared to go into the water and a bestie who has a ton of gossip to fill you in on! I hope summer 2015 has loads more days like these ahead...

Anna's 19th.


What would a night out be without lots of incredibly embarrassing photographs?!


I feel very content and lucky to all my friends at the moment. I've really got a good bunch beside me and although that might sound really cringey I don't know what I would do without them all. *Happy days*


All of these photos were taken on Anna's birthday night out, and that can only mean one thing... Its nearly time for Benidorm! Eeeeepppp

HATS.

The serious question I keep asking myself is - when is it acceptable to wear a hat? I had a job interview on Monday and I really wanted to wear a hat but felt like it'd be out of place? However I feel its too formal to just wear a hat everyday... I mean where do I have to be going, and what do I have to be wearing in order for me to wear a hat? I am going out "clubbing" (much to my disgust) at the weekend I want to wear my hat but even then I feel out of place! (And I'm scared of drunk people running away it! Ha ha.) My friend Tamara seems to be able to just rock a hat no matter what shes wearing or where shes going... Maybe I just need to grin and bear it?

Obviously wouldn't rock my hat with my
teenage mutant ninja turle PJs outside the house!! 

Also... How do you wear your hair with a hat? If I wear mine down and take my hat off I have a serious case of hat hair - so can I wear it to the side in a plait? Or a pony tail? Hmmmm... I have alot of time on my hands lately to contemplate hats (if you didn't already guess!) Are you into hats? When do you wear them? PLEASE somebody save me and be my hat Gok Wan!!!

Holiday Haul!

Good afternoon :) today is a beautiful day! Sadly I had to work... However Jodie came and met me mid-shift for a donut and Anna picked me afterwards for a mooch about for some bits & bobs for our holiday. - I have now naughtily ordered a few bits and thought I would share them with you! I love shopping online... However I hate waiting for it to arrive! I wish it was here now

Next

From Next I ordered my swimming costume... If you couldn't already tell from my graceful figure I'm not one for swimming! (Or any kind of exercise for that matter). However when on holiday its almost a law that you have to play in the pool! If I'm honest I can't wait, I used to love going swimming on a Saturday with my friend Daisy, but when you get older swimming becomes a serious form of exercise and I'm not one to hop in the pool and swim 100 lengths all by myself! I can't wait for a good old swim and mess around in the pool - then sit beside the pool and sunbathe...Aaahh I just wish I was on holiday now! Anyway - this is the swimming costume I ordered! 


From Next I also ordered a couple of plain t-shirts. I've got loads of pairs of colourful trousers but not many plain tops to wear with them - so I picked a white one because white goes with everything and an orange one just because I fell in love with the colour! Both of them have a really pretty detail on the back which I love and think it makes them look ever more summery. Eeeep, I can't wait to wear them just for nice, casual, everyday summer-wear. 


Finally from Next I ordered some three-quarter length leggings just because I love leggings. They're just so easy and comfortable to wear and they go with absolutley everything so you just can't go wrong! Plus they were only £8 so they were an investment really...

Asos

Asos is one of my favorite places to order clothes from because its got such a wide range and variety of clothes.. I couldn't find, from Next, a nice kimono/kaftan to wear with my swimming costume so I thought I would try Asos on a whim - I had never looked at their "swimwear" section before so I was intrigued to see what they had to offer... Eventually I ended up ordering this beautiful colourful kaftan! Now, I know its not to everybody's taste (I can just imagine what my friends Jodie and Anna will say about it!) but I firmly believe if you like it who cares what anybody else likes! And I love this. I really hate my legs and this is just long enough to cover them while I'm waddling to the pool...or to buy an ice cream!


Lastly from Asos I ordered some "turban" headbands. I am really into these at the moment and have been experimenting with all different things lately! I found a scarf my friend bought me from Paris works really well but I fancied buying some "proper" ones to take away with me to disguise my "sea" hair...And hungover "bed hair" too! 



That was everything from my online order today! All in all it came to £103 which I don't think is too bad for everything that I got... Swimming costumes are alot more expensive than I thought they were going to be mind! I found some online that were £150+! Crazyness. Have you ordered anything online lately? Are there any bargains out there at the moment? I love buying new clothes - especially pretty summery things... I need to get all my holiday bits together because I go away in exactly 1 month today! Eeeeekkk...

Birthday BBQ.

To celebrate Anna's birthday her and her boyfriend, Steve, hosted a BBQ yesterday. It was a really nice evening sat, chatting, and eating burgers! Anna was really happy with all the presents she received off of me and Jodie - sometimes I think it is really nice to get a present a few days after your birthday because then you get to be excited all over again! 


Pete really wanted to help Anna open her presents! Look at his little face... 
"Can I has the next one Wan??"  "Is there something for me to eat in there??"


I can't believe Anna is now 19! I can remember going to her 14th birthday party like it was yesterday! So strange. Anyway - I'm off to enjoy the sunshine with Anna and Jodie and waltz around the shops today. - Window shopping only mind! 
*must.restrain.from.spending.money.* 


I present you with the modelling photos from Anna's 14th birthday.
"Hello, Vogue? Is that you calling?"

Summer Is Nearly Here!

I feel so summery lately! I have missed the warm weather - as much as I love winter and Christmas and jumpers and cozy dressing gowns... I can't tell you how happy I am to be wearing crazy colourful trousers and bright lipsticks again! 


Last night I went for a few pre-birthday drinks with Anna to our local pub. It was a really nice evening just catching up - I usually see Anna everyday but I hadn't seen her for at least three days (which feels like such a long time) so we had alot to chit-chat about. I dread the day we don't work together anymore! 


Today I had a lovely day... I woke up at 11 - what a beautiful lye in! Then I headed out for lunch and a mooch about with my mum and auntie. Whilst out and about I broke my "no spending" rule and bought a new perfume from The Shed, which smells amazing, and some candles from Next. I'm sure I've mentioned "The Shed" on here before but if I haven't its basically a massive old done-up shed which contains a café and lots of quirky individual shops - I love it there! Quite often there's live music and you'll always find something nice to buy (its really good for unique gifts!) As soon as I smelt the perfume I just had to buy it - I'm thinking it'll be my summer scent! 


When I got home Jodie came straight round and picked me up for another mooch about - this time she was looking for Anna's birthday present. We went all over the place and before we knew it it was nearly 7oclock and we were both a bit peckish!... Off to Nando's we went! After a delicious Nando's we met up with Jord for a few hours and enjoyed the sunshine walking Pete and sitting and talking.


Finally... It is my Benidorm babe Anna's birthday today! (I say "today" because it has gone midnight, it is actually "tomorrow" if you think about it logically!) Anyway, as I've mentioned previously Anna is a childhood friend of mine so I have known her all my life... It feels crazy that's shes just turnt 19! It only feels like yesterday we all went out for her 18th! Madness how time flies.. Anna if you're reading this I hope your have the most amazing day! You deserve it!  Hopefully 2015 won't fly by as quickly as 2014 did because I'm not sure I'm prepared to be celebrating 20th birthdays just yet! Oh! One more thing... Guess what... One month and five days until Benidorm

I Am Happy For...

Yesterday I was reading a blog post about "Reasons To Be Happy" (I will link it here if you'd like to read it!) In the blog post it said "write a list of all the things that make you happy at the moment" so I thought I would do just that...




  • I am happy for my amazing friends and family...
  • I am happy for spending all afternoon with my Mum...
  • I am happy because its nearly Anna's birthday...
  • I am happy because I have been wrapping presents all afternoon in pretty sweetie covered wrapping paper...
  • I am happy because it has been such a beautiful day...
  • I am happy because I finally feel happy at work after a crap few weeks...
  • I am happy because all the customers I served today were lovely (makes a change!)...
  • I am happy because my cat is so freaking cute and is curled up so close to me she is nearly understand me (can't be comfortable!)...
  • I am happy with my new lemon covered top (thank you Asda)...
  • I am happy because its 6'oclock and still beautifully sunny out...
  • I am happy because I am going out for a drink with one of besties tonight...
  • I am happy because I complained to Vue cinema and got a £10 free gift card! (Long story, haha)...
  • I am happy because I have amazing plans for this summer...
  • I am happy because Jodie is home...
  • I am happy because I have some exciting opportunities ahead!...
  • I am happy to have downloaded all my music again! (Hello Queen & Disney on repeat!!)...
  • I am happy because I have the coolest Frozen Pj's on!!...
  • I am happy because its 1 month till I go on holiday! *fistpumps!*


I am just really happy at the moment! You know sometimes you get sucked into the whole "eat,sleep,work,repeat" pattern and feel like you need to break FREE (sorry, now I've mentioned Queen I can't get "break free" out of my head) and you just feel "meh" well I felt like that for a little while but now the sunshine's here I feel so happy and excited for the rest of 2015! So much for Wednesday being "hump day" I am feeling it as a "happy day". If you're feeling "meh" lately trying listing everything you're happy about... It makes you realise life is goood..

(If you're reading this Jodie I expect you to do it too!)

My Favorite Hemp Products.

I've used The Body Shop for a long time but its only been within the past year that I discovered my love for their Hemp range. The range consists of hand cream, hand butter, face protector, lip conditioner, foot cream, soap-on-a-rope, hemp oil,hand wash and body butter. I don't necessarily use all of the range however the bits than I do use, I love and thought I'd share them with you! 

Face Protector

The face protector is beautiful. I used this on a whim one evening because it was just chilling within my skincare box of goodies and I have loved it ever since. It is a high impact moisturizer and within seconds of using it my skin feels healthier and less tight from the days worth of makeup. I only use this in the evenings as I think its "too much" moisture for my skin for the day time. However I do love this and apply it most evenings before I go to get my beauty sleep!


Lip Conditioner

This is a long-term love of mine. I have never come across a lip product which is so moisturizing. For those days where your lips just feel really dry and unloved this is perfect! I love it. I have one of these in nearly every bag, pocket and corner of my house! This bad boy is also only £4 and worth every penny! I really love it. 


Hand Butter

Hemp hand butter is something I decided to try on my tiny patch of dry skin I have on my elbow. I never tend to get massively dry skin however on my left elbow I get a little circle of it which can get really painful and cracked! Its really not nice! I decided to try the butter because I knew it was more intense than the "hemp hand cream" and I thought it would do my elbow some good... I apply this every night before I go to bed, and a keep a pot of it in my bag to re-apply during the day. I love it. I don't know why but it stops my little dry patch from being painful and although its still there its now as soft as the rest of my skin and its barely noticable anymore! Woop. *fistpump!* I would 100% recommend this if you're prone to dry skin - I hear its especially good if you get psoriasis. (I do, ofcourse, also love the hand cream also however the hand butter is alot more moisturizing so I would choose that over the hand cream - especially as its only £1 more.)


And they're all my favorite Hemp products! I would like to try the body butter however I think the hemp scent would be slightly over powering if applied all over your body! For now I think I'll stick to my hand butter! I do also really love the soap-on-a-rope, I just think the concept is really cool and easy to use, and the actual soap leaves your skin so super soft afterwards! It really lathers up into a silky-smooth texture... I love it! However I am all out at the moment so didn't have one to photograph for you. :( *damnit.* But yeah! I am just loving Hemp at the moment so if you want something new to try I suggest you try these goodies! :)

The Village Of Imber.


Recently Jodie and I visited the "Village of Imber." Back in 1943 the villagers of Imber were evacuated to provide an exercise area for the American troops to prepare for their invasion on Europe during the second world war... After the war the people who once lived their were not aloud to return to their homes and now the village is under control of the "Ministry of Defence". So basically its like a ghost town! So we thought we'd go and visit the "creepy" village...


As you can imagine the whole place had a "eery" feel to it. Especially the church. Inside the church were "signing in books" which dated back to 1943! It was really strange to see all those people who had entered the church. It was also very sad as they had a tribute to the soldiers who had came from the village and were buried in the church grounds. 


Once we'd walked around a few houses and the Church we came to the last few houses on the row and we were met with some rather spooky messages carved into the wall... I still can't make my mind up if they were written by ghosts or chavs! I can only hope it was the chav's!


But overall we had a fun and interesting adventure... Although it took us way longer than predicted to get there! Sometimes iPhone sat nav's really are crap... And siri's voice can get really annoying! Ha ha. If you're ever in Salisbury Plane's you should visit Imber...Although make sure you map your route before heading off! (We had to stop off at 2 pubs, Stonehenge, and ask some dog walkers the way!) 

And finally after all of our walking around and early morning Pete was ready to sleep all the way home... Lazy puppy! Zzzzzzz....

Easter Sunday.

Good afternoon! I hope you are enjoying Easter Sunday! This morning I took a cheeky trip to the local car boot sale! Although I can assure you when my dad woke me up at 8:00am I wasn't full of Easter cheer! Ha ha.


Sunday is my favorite day of the week, although I don't really know why as I usually work Sundays! Thankfully I am not this weekend *hallejuah!* But because I always work a Sunday I never get a chance to go car booting with my dad anymore - and that was something we used to do every Sunday. Thankfully every now and then we get a chance too and today I was really impressed with the bargains I scored at the 'booty!!

Yes ladies and gentle men, that is a little bundle of real Mac makeup. "How much did all that cost?" You ask... Wait for it... FIVE pounds. Yes, one pound an item. What a bargain. I had also, stupidly, forgotten my purse which meant my lovely Dad forked out and got these goodies for me! *Result!* Haha. I couldn't believe my luck - sadly there was a rather annoying lady at the Mac stand before me and she left with a gurt handful of things - why did I spend so long waking up this morning? I should've jumped out of bed and been all over those Mac goodies...


I couldn't wait to try them out so I got home, bathed in Lush goodness, and got ready - this is the finished result... I really love the blusher - I think its a nice warm red-toned pink, and I like the mascara although it was maybe a teeny on the clumpy side (but for £1 who really cares?) and I do really love the cream shadow although I got a bit carried away and put it all over my lid as 'uppose to just in the crease... Ohhhh well! I was just experimenting okay! Ha ha. 


Safe to say I've been spoilt this Easter! My Mum treated me to a mini egg Easter egg & some amazing perfumes from Next (who knew Next did perfumes?) they smell beautiful and summery! Then my best friend Jodie bought me a flower/plant and a Lindt egg - isn't she so cute? I had a really rough day at work last week so she picked me up and gave me gifts (I am very lucky to have such good friends and family!) :) 


Happy Easter!

Cinema Dates With Bae.

Monday evening I managed to persuade Jodie to come & watch the new Disney film, Cinderella, with me. It took alot of persuading I tell you! Jodie isn't exactly a girly-girl so she wasn't excited by the idea of princesses and princes and glass slippers like I was... Eventually she said yes (woohoo) so off we set to our favorite cinema "The Vue" in Longwell Green (Bristol)... To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. I'm not sure what I was expecting but that definitely wasn't it. It was just boring. I mean, I know they can't change the whole "Cinderella" story line, but couldn't they of made it a bit more exciting? I felt like I snoozed my way through 2 hours. Needless to say Jodie wasn't impressed. *oops*. However Helena Bonemcarter was, as always, incredible. She is my Woman-Crush-Wednesday everyday.


Then yesterday evening, Good Friday, Jodie asked me to go and see Fast & Furious 7 with her... Couldn't exactly say no after the Cinderella disaster could I? We set off to the cinema with her all excited and me slightly dreading spending 2 hours watching cars crash into each other... Whoa.. How wrong was I? I was glued to that film from start to finish! Nobody told me bloody Vin Diesel and The Rock were both in it! Phhhew! That is man candy at its best! Ha ha. But apart from that it was generally a really good film and I think I am going to spend the rest of my Easter Weekend watching Fast and Furious 1-6. (Although I won't tell Jodie that because she'll just say "I told you so!") Also the tribute to Paul Walker at the end was really touching, he was incredible in the film, especially in the coach scene... Oops! I'll stop right there so I don't give any spoilers.

If you're off to the cinema this weekend I would highly recommend you go and see Fast and Furious 7...And that you stay away from Cinderella


EASTER Lush Haul.


Happy Easter! April already? How did that happen?

Tuesday myself and my friend Hannah popped into Swindon for a beloved Cosmo's. Hannah & I definitely bonded over our love for food so we thought it'd only be right if we shared a trip to our favorite place Cosmo's. Whilst being in Swindon I took a cheeky trip into Lush. Aaahh I can just smell the beautiful aroma of Lush as I type this! Seeing as Easter weekend was just around the corner I thought I'd treat myself to a few Easter-y goodies...

From Left to Right: Golden Egg, Fluffy Egg, BubbleGrub, Mother Superior. Hoppity Poppity. 


Golden Egg -


Golden Egg is a beautiful bath bomb. The golden glitter literally covers the whole bomb - and everything within 10cm of it! I came out of Lush looking like a fairy I was sooo glittery. But everyone loves a bit of glitter don't they? I can't wait to try this bath bomb it is so beautiful and smells so amazing I feel like I need to save it for the right occasion? Ha ha. But when will that occasion be? Who knows... I would deffinutly say treat yourself to this if you're after a luxury bomb.



Fluffy Egg -


Oh me oh my. This bath bomb smells i-n-c-r-e-d-i-b-l-e, like I can't even justify how amazing it smells. If you're familiar with Lush you'll know exactly what I mean when I say "Snow Fairy" - yeah same smell guys... The same smell! I can't believe it. I feel like Christmas has come early. I thought when I'd finished my Snow Fairy shower gel's up in December that would be it for another year - but no Lush thought they'd surprise us and chuck a Snow Fairy smelling bomb into the Easter mix this year... I have never been so happy! Ha ha. I am beyond excited to try this.



Bubble Grub -


Before buying this little cutie I had seen pictures of it splattered all over Instagram and I was eager to try it... Although I wasn't 100% on the smell I bought him anyway - and I am so glad I did! This little fella was the perfect amount for two baths so was a bargain money-wise, and both times it left my skin feels amazing. It was like I'd bathed in a body butter or something - I was so soft and moisturized afterwards! I, myself, much prefer a sweet smelling bath product however Bubble Grub did make a pleasant change with its vanilla, tonka Bean, and sandalwood scent. (And how bloody cute is it?!)


Mother Superior -


Being a "bubble bar" lover more so than a "bath bomb" lover means I feel like I have to try all the bubble bars Lush have to offer - so ofcourse when a new one comes out I have to add it into my basket reguardless! This time I opt for the Mother Superior bubble bar which smells gorgeous and is the perfect smell for spring - its a mixture of floral notes & cherry notes resulting a the most glorious smell ever! I really hope this one isn't limited edition because it may well be a new favorite of mine...


Hoppity Poppity -


Last but least is the cutie little Easter special - Hoppity Poppity! Wouldn't you love to name the products for Lush? I bet they have a great time thinking up weird & wonderful names to call the new products! Hoppity Poppity I thought would just be a fun little Easter treat! It smells like lime, lavender and violets so it a perfect Easter weekend/Spring time scent. I love it! Apparently it fizzes, crackles and pops under running water as well - so that should be fun! I'm also under the impression it leaves your skin soft and moisturized so if its anything like Bubble Grub I will love it! I plan to try this little cutie on Easter Sunday...



I can't quite believe this is my 100th post! How crazy is that? I started my blog in April 2014 and its now April 2015! Happy Birthday Blog! And just to think - when I made my blog my two best friends, Jodie & Jordan, laughed at me... And now, 1 year on, they both have a blog! Ha! Crazy how quick that year has gone... I like to think I'll still be writing to my online diary/blog this time next year too... Probably still writing about how much I love Lush!
