Lifestyle | Birthday Wishlist

Hi Everyone,

So it's my birthday shortly and I though I'd just give you a quick little wishlist of what I am lusting over for my birthday this year. I'm turning 26 which now means I've got to start acting a bit more like an adult in someways and also I suppose I should start saving!

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 in Blue
I used to have a Spice Girls Polaroid camera back in the day and now they are coming back in I'm desperate to get my hands on the blue one. I love taking photos, however with the digital age you often never get to hold them in your actual hands, you just lust over them on Facebook and Instagram. I can't wait to see if I get this as I'll be able to get the photos instantly and hang them up in my room.

Laura Mercier Creme Brulee Honey Bath
At Christmas I treated myself to the Creme Brulee Bath Set by Laura Mercier from SpaceNK. However I seemed to have worked my way through the bubble bath extremely quickly compared to the scrub and moisturiser. Whoops! So I'm really hoping someone decides to pick me up another one as the smell is to die for!

Driving Lessons
Yes I know, I'm nearly 26 and don't know how to drive! Well I'm hoping to change this. I did take lessons when I turned 17 however I wasn't that interested in them and with heading off to Uni I just didn't see the need in learning how to drive. However we've just sold our house and may be moving out further meaning I will need a car in order to get into work, so now it's crucial! Also I'm fed up of asking for lifts all the time from my mum and friends.

Zoeva Rose Golden Set
I'm in desperate need of new make up brushes and I can't help but stare at the Zoeva Rose Gold set constantly. I love rose gold and all of my watches are this colour, the brushes are also extremely pretty. Why else wouldn't I want them?

Lush Gift Set
Yes everyone who knows me knows how much I love Lush Cosmetics. I always browsing the website or hitting up my local shop filling my basket with all their amazing bath bombs, melts and bubble bars. You can never have enough of them so a few more shouldn't hurt.


Tickets to see Miss Saigon
Miss Saigon is one of my all time favourite musicals. I remember when I went with my secondary school to see it and fell in love with the story straight away, not only that but the music and set design is amazing. Now it's back in the West End I'm dying to go see it; anyone want to take me?


And that is what I'm hoping to get for my birthday this year! Even one of these will be amazing. I'm actually off to Newcastle for my birthday weekend with my best girl mates for a little weekend away as I didn't really do much for my birthday with them last year.

Lifestyle | What I've Been Up To Wednesday #4

Oh Hi!

Yes I'm back with another What I've Been Up To Wednesday post for you guys! So lets see what I've been up to this week.

Wednesday & Thursday
I'm just going to roll both of these days into one as not much exciting happened! I went to work, the gym and came home. Well with it being the days before pay day I was pretty broke!

It was payday! So I was extremely happy, especially as it meant I could go shopping for a final few holiday outfits over the weekend. As my parents had gone out for dinner for the evening my two best friends from school, Cole & Nikki, came over for a catch up and a cheeky Indian take away. We've made a resolution this year between us to see each other at least once a month and so far we have been super duper good at it.

I was up pretty early as I wanted to hit Lakeside with my mum. We spent a good few hours wandering around the shops, I picked up all my toiletries for holiday as well as few sneaky clothes purchases; so make sure you a subscribed to my YouTube as I am planning on filming a style diary whilst away. After a hard day shopping I came home and had to get ready for a friend's engagement party, which was very exciting. I picked them up a small gift from us girlies as we were unsure what to get the happy couple. Here are a few photos of the night. My dress is from Miss Selfridge, unfortunately it was in the sale so they no longer have it available to buy.
My Stash of Holiday Goodies

My mum and I headed of to the Spa at Bannatyne's on Sunday, it was just what I needed after a night of drinking. We had booked in for a full body exfoliating scrub as well as a neck, shoulder and back massage. It was heaven! I felt so relaxed and pampered, just wondering around in my fluffy dressing gown and slippers. The scrub is supposed to help your tan develop as well which couldn't come at a more perfect time as I'm whizzing off to the sun on Saturday. Also as the weather was quite nice I was able to have a little sunbathe outside by the hot tub, however I did fall asleep for about an hour. I blame the hangover for that one. To find out more about spa days at Bannatyne's just click here, they often do good deals on spa days.

It was a struggle to go back to work that's for sure. However the thought of only having three days of work to get through made it a tiny bit easier! After work my best friend from work Danielle and I headed off to The Big Easy in Covent Garden; and oh my god what a treat it was. I really wish I had starved myself all day for this epic meal. We ordered the Monday special, which was basically an all you can eat BBQ, we could refill as many times as we wanted on chips, potato salad, coleslaw, beans, chicken and pulled pork. Now when I say the portions aren't small I really mean they aren't small, think American sized. See for yourself below.

I Was Defeated.

Same old, same with work and gym. However I did get my nails all spruced up and painted with gel for my holiday so that made my evening as both my fingernails and toes needed some love.

And that has been my week. Pretty hectic weekend as always but I like to make the most of them rather than sitting indoors especially now summer is here. Also just to let you guys know, there will be no What I've Been Up To Wednesday post next week as I will be in Egypt with my girlies. However I will have some scheduled posts going up for which will be holiday related. Also make sure you are subscribed to my YouTube as my monthly favourites will be going up tomorrow as well as a One Direction Come Along With Me next week! So it's going to busy on there, especially once I get back from Egypt and edit my style diary and Egypt vlog, just make sure your subscribed so you don't miss out.

Let me know what you've been up to this week in the comments, or if you've been to The Big Easy or Bannatyne's Spa.

Until Next Time...
