You probably aren’t really aware of my Soap and Glory obsession, as I rarely post about it! I actually love their products, however I take my time using them up, hence why I don’t often reviews them. This is my collection that I have gained over the years, and almost all of them are still full! I kind of feel like I should save them for a ‘special occasion’ that never comes, and I just like to collect them rather than use them! That’s not to say I don’t love using Soap and Glory.. their products are so good! I…

So, as some of you may know from my Twitter, I have been made redundant from the cake shop I work at as of next week. Hard times! Coincidentally, I had a graduate interview the day after I found this out with a big company in my town.

Applying for graduate grown up jobs is really boring but I hope to find something suitable soon! Anyway here’s what I wore to the interview. I look uber frumpy but ho-hum…

What…

So, as I previously posted on Monday, I won a competition with Go Lakes Travel to go on a trip to the Lake District! We got to spend 3 nights at the amazing Waterhead boutique hotel, which included breakfast and a 3 course dinner. We had an absolutely amazing time! So here is a little bit about the first couple of days of our trip, and lots of photos too! We were really excited about finally reaching Ambleside after a long 4 hour drive from home. We checked in just after 4pm and said goodbye to my little car for…

So, packing for a trip to the country is harder than you may think. I don’t really have many outdoor-sy type clothing, so I found it pretty tough to pack my bag. I decided to buy some low-cost stuff for the trip, as we were only spending 3 days there, I didn’t want to spend a lot of money. So here’s an overview of the things I packed to wear. I’m not sure I need it all! Polka dot pac a mac, £3 from Home Bargains. To keep the rain off! Pretty and cheap! Three pairs of thermal socks, £3…
