IM BACK!!!! (Plus my new Uggs)

Im happily back in the world of blogging, yay!! I still don't know what went wrong with the laptop or how its been fixed, im just glad it is. I apparently have a different version of windows now but that means nothing to me!! (It does take FOREVER to upload pictures now, but i'll just have to put up with it!!)

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed how cold its been the last couple of days?! Maybe its just because I live in Scotland?!

So as winter is fast approaching, I ordered my new Ugg Boots a couple of weeks ago from ASOS. And they actually arrived pretty quick!!

I decided to get the Tall Chestnut ones. I like the tall version as you can wear them up or folded down which I also like.
My friend went to New York about 3 years ago and she bought me back the Tall Sand Uggs at a bargain price!!
I've kept them in pretty good condition but I wanted darker ones for the winter.

These are my poor old ones:

I have to say though, they will in no way be neglected. Still loads of wear left in them :-)

My Boyfriend can't understand why on earth I would want two pairs of these 'ugly things' but he soon changes his mind when im not complaining about my cold feet!!

My Dad thinks they look like boots that old ladies wear and im pretty sure my Mum agree's.

What are your thoughts on Uggs, love them or loathe them?!

Virus Update...

As you might have noticed, I haven't had the use of the computer OR the internet for almost a week now and its not funny.

I've been catching up on all my fave blogs, but only being able to use my laptop in 'safe mode' means that i can't upload ANY pictures so I haven't been able to post AT ALL!!

The Boyfriend is taking the laptop to his 'computer genius' friend tonight so hopefully he will be able to fix it!! He thinks he can but it might wipe everything thats on it!! Eeeekk!!

So hopefully, fingers crossed, i'll be back in action very soon!!

Im still here!!

This is just a quick message to all my lovely readers. I have a virus on my laptop which has caused Windows to crash!! :-(

The Boyfriend says its my fault as I opened an e mail from someone I didn't know (oops) and ever since then, it hasn't worked properly.
This has happened at the worst possible time as this is the week my family have gone on holiday and I NEED the internet!!

I've managed to do this post in 'Safe Mode' so hopefully I can try to do my normal posts like that too for now....even if it takes a lot longer!!

Hope everyone had a good weekend!!

Patrick Swayze

Im so sad to be typing this but I woke up to GMTV with the sad news that Patrick Swayze has died after losing his battle with Cancer. :-(

My absolute favourite film is Dirty Dancing. I've made my boyfriend watch it over and over again and i've lost count how many times i've watched it!! I loved Ghost too, that film made me laugh and cry loads!! So just thought i'd post some of my fave pics for all of you who loved his films too!!

(All pics from Google images)

He'll be sadly missed, RIP Patrick Swayze!!

The Bargain Mac!!

So the other week my Mum was being dragged around local charity shops with my Dad. My Dad always goes in to look at the books and Mum just tags along!! I used to be really funny about going in charity shops and I always thought it was a bit un-cool going in. Now my opinions have totally changed.

Im so glad that on this occasion Mum went in as she found me this little gem:

I'd only been saying to Mum recently that I was struggling to find a cute Mac that was stylish and affordable. Im glad I told her I was looking for one otherwise she probably wouldn't have looked twice at this.
Its originally from River Island. I love that shop and I had been in there regularly looking for a mac. Its my size and its got a gorgeous animal print on the inside of the coat, the same as whats inside a lot of their handbags.

Its also got cute little tie's at the cuffs which is a nice bit of detailing. And the best part is.... it only cost £5.99!!

Bargain!! Thanks Mum!!

I also have to say Thanks to my Dad who says if it wasn't for him going in in the first place, I would never have got it!!

I've now had the coat dry-cleaned and it looks as good as new!! I think im going to have to get rid of my 'inner snob' and go looking in charity shops more often.

As they would say in Sex and the City: One girls trash, is another girls treasure!!

Also a quick reminder that the deadline for my giveaway is tomorrow night at midnight. Thanks to everyone that has already entered so far, the winner will be chosen very soon!!

Too Much Stuff!!

I've decided today was the day to start my mega clearout!! I've got way too much stuff and I need to sort it out. Im fed up of spending hours, searching for a certain product and not being able to find it!!

Im having a break at the mo to get my lunch and thought i'd share with you all my lovely mess.

I haven't even started on my wardrobe, bags, shoes or make up yet, this is just the result of one shelf from my cupboard!!

I think i've got enough body moisturisers to last me a lifetime and I dont even use them that often. I've got 3 more shelves to go from this cupboard and they all pretty much contain the same as what you see here. I just couldn't empty them all out onto my bed at the same time!! I don't think I need to buy any shampoo or conditioner for months.
I've got so many nice things and they're all getting lost in my junk. I find it very hard to throw things away but think I need to now!!

I better go to try and finish it before the Boyfriend gets home, he'll go crazy if he see's this!!

Is anyone else a product junkie like me?!

Happy Birthday Bro!!

Today was my "little" Brother's 19th Birthday. Thought i would put some pic's of him on here to wish him Happy Birthday as i can't go down home to see him!!

The day Dave was born, was the day I started school and I never let him forget it!! :-) We used to argue like mad when we were younger but we do get on really well now!!

This one was earlier on this year, when I went home:

This one was taken last year in Menorca when we were celebrating his 18th:

And this was him the other night at Gatecrasher club in Birmingham, at "Ibiza Night". Think this was the start of the night as he looks pretty sober!! :-)

Hope you had a Fab Birthday Bro!!

LUSH Goodies

On Saturday me and the Boyfriend went shopping. I made the mistake of going in all of his shops first and as soon as he had what he wanted, he was bored!!
So I only managed to get to a few of my shops. I did my usual Accessorize and Topshop and then came across LUSH. I don't have a local LUSH, my nearest one is all the way in town, so when im there, I love going in for a look!!

I only came away with two things in the end. A Sex Bomb ballistic and Lemony Flutter cuticle butter.
I could have spent a crazy amount of money in there but as I had a certain someone watching everything I was buying, I thought i'd better be good!! :-)

Im still quite new to the whole LUSH thing as well and didn't really know where to start. The shop is quite small with an upstairs to it and as it was a Saturday, it was mobbed.

I liked the look of all of the bath bombs, but the colour of this one appealed to me the most. I love how it has a little rose flower in the middle of it and the smell is AMAZING!!
It contains Jasmine, Clary Sage and Ylang Ylang and I can't wait to try it. I haven't used it yet as i've been too tired at night and don't want to waste it but i'll let you all know what i think when its been used.

The cuticle butter appealed to me as im still in the process of repairing my nails from acrylics. They've almost all grown out now, so im just trying to build the strength back up.

The smell of this stuff is gorgeous. Its really, really lemony without being too strong or citrus-y. It is a really thick butter but its not at all heavy or greasy which is what I like about it.
It contains Shea Butter, Beeswax, Soya Oil, Wheatgerm Oil and Lemon Oil, so you can imagine how moisturising it is!!
For this reason, you can also put this on any dry areas of skin. Knee's, elbows, hands, feet and even your lips!!
I've been applying this to my dry heels at night time and its one of the only things that has taken it away. I would definately recommend this stuff for any of the above.

It was £5.37, but you do get 50g worth of product for that, which is amazing compared to the likes of my Burts Bees tin where you only get 17g for around the same price!!

Im addicted to LUSH already. I keep looking on their website and am now making a list for next time I go.

What are your LUSH fave's?!
