2. This week I’ve discovered that Victoria’s Secret is my new fave shop. Move over Doutzen Kroes!

3. Taking advantage of the sale with this cute body mist/fragrance set. 

4. New ‘in handbag’ makeup bag. Primark special at only £3!

5. Oh god it happened again. Twice in one week! This time I hit the VS sale with my sister…

6. Couldn’t resist these Pure Seduction smellies! Who knew that red plum and freesia could smell so good!

7. Silky leopard print robe. I wish I could wear it all the time!

8. Loved the Victoria’s Secret polka dot bag so much I put it on my nails. Combo of Models Own, Nails Inc and Topshop polishes. 

9. Costa just went and topped themselves by producing this fine specimen. Tiramisu cake. Cake, that tastes like Tiramisu! *Dies*

Instagram Diary: Week In Pictures


1. Pizza. Some times you just can’t beat a good cheesy pizza.

2. Mother Nature has been one confused lady this week. In just one day we had blinding sunshine, a full on blizzard, rain, hail and gale force winds. But no rainbows. Mother Nature where are all the rainbows?

3. With this lovely soft fresh bedding it’s a been a struggle to vacate my bed each morning.

4. This week I sampled the new Mocha Latte at Costa. Hot chocolate and coffee in the same cup. Just another thing for me to become addicted to.

5. Couldn’t resist the pull of the Bueno bar this week. I just love Bueno’s. I’ll be good next week, promise.

6. Leopard print nails using all Models Own polishes, Gold Rush, Bronze Rage, Disco Heaven and the black Models Own nail pen.

7. My ticket to see The Script at Sheffield arena. Wasn’t able to go last time they toured due to the gorgeous metal cage fixed to my leg. Was beyond excited to finally see them live.

8. As you can see we were right at the back but loved it regardless. This was The Script’s glitter finale to Hall Of Fame. I can also confirm beyond all reasonable doubt that Danny O’Donoghue is a total babe.

9. This picture speaks for itself. Customary cake shot.

10. I get all giddy when new books arrive from Amazon. This batch consists of Rachel Joyce’s The Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry, Hannah Richell’s The Secrets Of The Tides and Kate Atkinson’s Life After Life. Can’t wait to get stuck in.

11.‘No actual Malteaser’s were hurt during the making of this bunny.’ I was glad to read this on the back of the Malteaser Bunny packet as I’ve been worrying for a while now.

12. New sparkly phone case. River Island £8. Comes with the added bonus of covering your hands in glitter every time you touch it.

Instagram Diary: Week In Pictures

Well there wasn’t a Week In pictures past last Sunday due to it being a crazy weekend (and not in a good way.) This weekend has been decidedly calmer so this Instagram dairy includes pics from the last two weeks.mosaicf52dac0565e6023e45daa1f5985c6977c248666b

1. Love, love, love the new Galaxy Chocolate advert. Audrey Hepburn, Moon River and a chocolate bar all in one place? Perfect!

2. Costa feast with Mamma Smith.

3. Chips and gravy for tea. Naughty but sometimes necessary.

4. My best friend has been having a bit of a tough time these past weeks so last Sunday all the girls got together for a little tea party to let her know how much we love her. And how much we love cake. There was an abundance of cake. The cute cake stand filled with cupcakes and eclairs was just a small fraction.

5. So much cake was consumed at the tea party that we didn’t even get round to this beauty of a thing. Good job really as it would probably have put us in a cake coma. A smarties creation with Munchies and Rolos.

6. Bright pink nails with a hint of sparkle. Simple and quick,

7. Paid a flying visit to London on Wednesday for a job interview. Wish I could have spent more time there. Was very impressed with the new and improved Kings Cross Station especially the roof, very pretty!

8. Although my visit to the capital was a quick one you know that I found time to pay Oxford Street a visit, more specifically Topshop, where I purchased my very first Lola’s Cupcakes. They almost look too good to eat.

9. I have to say that my chocolate and white sprinkle cupcake was The. Best. Damn. Cupcake. I’ve. Ever. Tasted.

10. Snowdrops. Please let it be spring soon.

11. Love wrapping my hands around a warm Vanilla Latte.

12. Out for a Chinese with the family. It was a hair up kind of situation.

13. Obsessed with Chinese plain noodles and bean sprouts. Could eat these every day.

14. Cheeky Chocolate bar for film night.

15. Fortune Cookie. Some thing about a land of sunshine blah blah blah.

16. Freshly ombrèd hair.

Hope you’ve all had a good week/end!

Instagram Diary: Week In Pictures.

I’ve been rather poorly this week so this Instagram diary doesn’t contain much except naughty treats to try and make me feel better! 



1. I can never resist a Creme Egg. Fave. Chocolate. Ever!

2. After searching everywhere for these limited addition KitKat’s I finally found them and was too poorly to enjoy it. Sods law.

3. Have been loving my new Topshop pj’s. Now even bedtime is fashionable.

4. Even cake didn’t make me feel better 😦

5. Latest reading material. I love the Call The Midwife series on BBC1 so thought I’d give the book a go. So far so good 🙂

6. Me, rocking out my pj’s

7. Mamma Smith cheered me up with pancakes. I think pancakes cure just about anything.

8. This Palmers lip balm smells devine. Dark Chocolate and mint. Mmmmm.

9. I solemnly swear I’m up to no good. Sunday reading, Harry Potter Film Wizardry.
