One Thousand Follower- Geeeeee Wizz!

Aloha Bloggerinos!

Today I have been temping (what I wouldn't give to win the lottery and not have to work) at the most boring job I have ever done. Let me give you a run down of the day:

Nearly die on the country road to the middle of nowhere when a combine harvester ignores basic things like LANES and MY CAR, arrive at middle of nowhere office, enter to a woman who wasn't expecting a temp (good start), sit at desk facing wall, fold letter, gather leaflets, stuff envelope, stamp. Fold letter, gather leaflets, stuff envelope, stamp. Over and over and ovvveerrr again, until I thought I might rip all my clothes off and do a jig in the table just for a bit of entertainment!!

Thankfully 5 o'clock came and Matt and I went to the Toby Cavery to drown our sorrows in roasted veg. Yeah baby.

Anyhoo, I can home and a few nice things had happened! 1, The cat had not left me any 'surprises'. 2, I have been invited to a blogger event on Thursday in London (is anyone else going??). 3. I HAVE REACHED 1000 FOLLOWERS!!!!!

Thank you to every single little follower out there who clicked that magical little button, you have made my day!

To 'give something back' (and because I have abused a bit too much of late) I am giving you a treat. I say 'treat' but what I really mean is a picture of me pretending to be a badger (as you do) at my last job in Liverpool. I don't know why, but I was really obsessed with badgers at the time. I even made a song. And a dance. Oh god.......Oh look, the men in white coats are here now!

1000 follower competition coming soon when I earn some pennies to splash- woop woop!

Snapshots of a Perfect Weekend

The 'Indian Summer' finally came this weekend and it was everything I wanted and more. I captured just a couple of my favorite moments knowing it will soon be 60 degrees again. Hope you all had as much fun as I did...

Follower Fun

Aloha Bloggerinos,

Are you sitting comfortably? Then let's begin.

Yesterday I went for a mini job interview at a recruitment agency in the hope that they will find me a cushy office job to keep me busy til Christmas/New Year. After all that hard work trying to be professional and not saying something mental like "Sausage SURPRISE!", I thought I ought to treat myself.

Can I work here please? (image:

I wandered to Lush with the long-shot prayer that Snow Fairy had been released (sadly not) and then tootled to Superdrug. I was in my own little world, musing over the pros and cons of the new Sleek double ended brush (twice as much brush for your money, tricky to store in your pot) when I heard a voice.

A lady had come up to me and said "Mrs Watson?". I thought "Oh what have a done wrong?", but it turned out to be a follower who recognised me! Coolest thing ever? Err Yes! We had a little chat about blogs and makeup and off she went to treat herself to some blue mascara- how's it working out for you?

You know I can't stand a naked post, so the pic today is the lady in question, hope she doesn't mind my photo thievery! (sorry it's a bit blurry)

The lady who said hello is Zoe and she actually has her own blog, mostly about homes and interiors and what not, I enjoy blogs like that muchly. Take a look HERE.

Zoe follows some fun interior type blogs too, so do check those out if like me, you're a home bird.

If ever you see me, puurrlleeaasee say 'hello' because I would love to meet you and get really rather giddy with joy!

Sparkle, Twinkle, GLITTEEERRRR!!!

Aloha Bloggerinos,

I'm just sitting watching TV/watching Matt as he paints our lounge and I decided I would treat myself to a little bit of eye porn. No, no, not filthy naughty videos (jeez, minds out the gutter please) but typing "Glitter" into and seeing what comes up.

They were so gorgeous that I felt the need to share them with you. If pictures of sparkly things light your fire as much as they do mine, then brace yourself!!

I NEED this nail varnish for the Autumn/Winter season or I shall die. 25 brownie points to the gal who knows the name of it!

Throwing glitter. Why is this not a validated sport??

To this day I regret not buying that pot of Purple Glitter Pigment that MAC bought out last year. Gargh!!

I had a glitter lamp at Uni and LOVED it. It was sadly lost in the 36 million moves I had as a studenty type but I feel I must buy one. How cute would it look as a night light in the baby's room. I intend on getting my baby hooked on glitter from an early age. Even if it's a boy. Uh oh.

Loved the jewel toned colours in this so much that I made it my YouTube channel background. Mmmmmm.

Did you enjoy that as much as I did? Good old weheartit, I really do heart it :)



PS. Harrooowww Josie, are you still reading? xxx

Lou's Reviews :: Topshop Lipstick and Glitter

Aloha Bloggerinos,

Another 'Lou's Reviews' for you, you lucky duckies! A couple of weeks ago Matt and I were in Birmingham at the Bullring and I got a little bit over excited in Topshop. I was hoping to find some nice maternity outfits in there but alas, none of it was my style really.

I have obviously read a tonne of reviews on the Topshop cosmetics range and must say, it never really seemed to float my boat too much. That day for some reason though, I thought "Well let's see what all the hype is about" and picked up two items. I would have bought some pretty feathery eyelashes too if all the boxes hadn't been so battered and rubbish (I hate cruddy packaging. Bleaugh.)

I bought a Lipstick Pencil in 'Vintage' for £7 and and a pot of Glitter in 'Gilt' for £6. Please do excuse the poopy lighting of my snaps today, it was really rainy but the lamp looked weird blah blah blah.

Here we have the gliiittttteerrrrr. It reminded me of a MAC Glitter pot I bought about a year ago from one of their limited edition collections, there was also a cadbury purple one which I sorely regret not buying. 25 brownie points for the Bloggerino who can name the LE collection!

I liked the colour of this glitter and it seems fairly well milled. Not at fine as MAC but for half the price I shan't complain. I plan on using this lots and lots over the Autumn/Winter season on my nails, mixed with moisturiser on my arms (I'm a sucker for sparkle) and on my eyelids. I thought about adding some to lipglosses but the jury is still out on that one.

So far, so good on the Gilt Glitter. Well done Topshop, bring out more colours asap!

The second item on the agenda is the chubby lipstick pencil in 'Vintage'. In the shop light I thought this was a lovely bright candy pink, but when I took it home, it seemed to be more of a frosty pale pink. Gutted.

I can't say I'm overly enamoured with the packaging of this, black with gold writing, in my opinion, would have looked swanky. I like the end of the pencil is a close match to the nib, love a bit of help when it's all muddled in my lipstick box.

I do enjoy the chubby nib, makes a change from the usual bullet shape and they say 'change is as good as a holiday', don't they?
Pop your shades on for that brriigghhtt shot! Yowzas! Nibby nib nib. Chunky chunk.

This lipstick has great pigment and lasting power is reasonable but I felt that I needed an overdose of lipbalm afterwards to combat the drying effect.

Overall- Meh.

Does anyone have a mad love for these lipsticks? I can't get to grips with it at all!
