Goodbye Twenty Ten...

Cheers to an unbelievable 2010...and to the hopes of an even better 2011...


Body Shop Blog Sale

Aloha Bloggerinos,


Remember last month I started as a Body Shop At Home Consultant? Well it was a bit of a bleaugh and after 2 parties I decided to pack it in and chalk it up to experiance. I only did 2 parties but Body Shop messed up so many of my orders, leaving me with angry customers and it was a bit of a nightmare really.

So, I have decided to do a bit of a blogsale of the Body Shop products I have because I know how much you all luurrvvee them :). Seeing as I only did 2 parties, these items were only opened twice and hardly swatched at all so are in super duper condition- no scuzzy stuff on here thank you very much.

Paypal only. No returns. Please comment with the product you'd like and your paypal email. Items are full and heavy so it's £1.75 per item for P&P with 50p extra for each additional. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and will package your items beautifully so you can really enjoy opening your treats.

Puurrrlleeaassee pay swifty or I'll be very cross- grrrr!!


Moringa Body Butter full size - £5.50

Wild Cherry Body Butter full size- £5.50

Cocoa Butter Body Butter full size- £5.50

Happy Shopping!!



I likey likey

Aloha Bloggerinos,

What happens when you're looking for interior ideas and you have 20 minutes of spare time? Weheartit gorging is what! Here are a few of my favs.







I'd like this last room to be BGW's, very lovely.

Did any of you English Rose's watch 'Upstairs, Downstairs' this week? I LOVE the use of colour in that home. If only I was brave enough for bright aqua rooms!

Fresh Starts

Aloha Bloggerinos,

As 2011 swiftly approaches, I've started to think about my New Year Resolutions. I make them every year, and some I stick to and some I don't (like loosing weight and saving money! haha). This year though will be my most life changing to date as I'll become a (hopefully Yummy) Mummy and embark on this new adventure with Mattmoo.


So with this in mind, here are my resolutions.

1. Organise my life. I seem to tumble through life in a bit of a muddle, never knowing where bits of paper are or where I put my grey leggings. I'm going to make orderly systems for things and ensure that life runs a bit smoother.

2. Loose weight. A classic. My master plan is taking Baby Girl Watson (BGW) out in her pram for lots of walks this summer and I would like to be a size 14 for Christmas. Before I got pregnant this summer I was a generous size 18, but since I have migrated to the wonders of elasticated maternity jeans and leggings, I have no idea- my clothes grow with me :)

3. Employ a bit more tolerance. This year I have been a little cut throat. I have had small fall outs with people and just thought "that's it, the end" and totally cut them from my life. At the time it felt nice to kind of eradicate the hurt or upset but now I think it might be best to try and be a bit more gentle in my actions, even if they aren't with me.

4. Learn to cook things. I hate cooking and never do it (thank goodness for Matt) but what sort of Mummy can't cook?! Anyone want to teach me?!

So that's it really. There are always little things that I try to improve or change but those are my biggies. What are yours?

Golly GOSH, I spy a MAC Dupe!

Aloha Bloggerinos,

You can only imagine my glee on boxing day when I saw that Superdrug were doing a a 3 for 2 deal across all cosmetics. I immediately headed to the GOSH counter, because I've been hankering for a few bits from there for a while.

I have always been really pleased with any gosh products I've had. To be honest, I don't know why I don't have more because it's always been such a pleaser!


So in my little spree I picked up these Light 'n' Shine Lipglazes for £7.99 each (I also bought a coloured eyeliner to make up my 3 for 2) because they reminded me soooo much of the MAC Dazzleglasses which are about £14 a pop. These lipglosses aren't new and I'm sure other people have noticed the similarity but I wanted to have my say anyway :)


I bought shades 04 and 05 which are a light pink and purply shade respectively. The pink is a blue based hue with darker pink and silver sparkles and the purple is a fuchsia colour with blue and gold sparkles. On the lips, if I were to tell you it was a MAC Dazzleglass, I'd be very surprised if you doubted it. And come to think of it, if you did, it would mean you had an unhealthy knowledge of MAC and were a bit of a saddo. Like me.

Both glosses are not sticky but lovely and sheeny, something I do wish MAC would sort out, the Dazzleglasses can be like shmearing treacle on your lips, and have excellent staying power. I don't usually expect must lastage from a gloss, but these did surpass my expectations- hurrah!


As always with GOSH products, the packaging is smashing. Each lipglaze has a little mirror on the side and when you pull out the application wand, 2 tiny LED lights turn on so applying in dark places (I mean dark locations of a room by the way, not on yourself- ooerrr) is a doddle. At first I thought it was a bit gimmicky and something I wouldn't use but I went out for a few drinks with Mattmoo (non alchofrolic before you get shirty) and it was really handy!


I'm also pretty impressed with the wand. My usual fav is a doefoot applicator and sometimes find that these little synthetic brushy jobbies are a bit messy, but so far, so good.

All in all these are something that I am really pleased with and will definitely be branching out into the other available colours. Have you tried these or are you strictly a MAC gal?




Here's the husband and I on that night out. How I don't look pregnant I do not know, I feel like a beached whale and have taken to waddling rather a lot-urgh! Do note my sparkletastic lips :)

"There's a snake in my boot!"

Aloha Bloggerinos,

I jest, there is no such thing in my boot. In fact, I'm not even wearing any boots, I was just feeling the love for Toy Story. When my sister was really little, she used to pretend to be Buzz Lightyear, stand on the sofa, jump and shout "To ifididy and leons!". Random fact for you there.

Well, as you will have seen, there has been no blog sale *slaps wrist*. Sadly life got in the way and I will now be doing it after Christmas. We're going to Liverpool to stay with Matt's ma and pa for the festive season so I won't be blogging or able to get to the post office and suchlike so it seems a bit silly to do it now. Still, good things come to those who wait.

I've got a very packed life at the mo, I seem to be forever seeing the midwife, or going to the hospital for my gestational diabetes test (I had to go twice because they couldn't draw blood :( ), going to work, going to far off lands (Peterborough) to buy baby things and all sorts!

I will defo have to do a baby post soon, with pics of the bump, the pram, the cot etc and I have a few Lou's Reviews in the pipeline too.

How are you all? Let me know, I enjoy a random ramble comment!
