I'm rubbish with titles.

On Monday I picked up these little goodies from Aldi, as I have heard a lot of good things about their Lacura range and at about £1.50 per product they were a steal! Everyone laughed because the cream is 'anti-wrinkle' but surely waiting until I've actually got the wrinkles to use the product would defeat the object?! Anyway I have used it for the past couple of nights and I am pleased so far. It's got a thin texture but isn't oily and greasy, and it kinda smells like old ladies and soap - but not in an entirely unpleasant way haha! The eye cream doesn't seem to have a scent to it, but you only need the smallest amount for each eye and it's dispensed through a tiny nozzle which means I can't get right in and have a sniff unfortunately. Have you ever tried Aldi's Lacura range? What did you think?
The last glossybox of my subscription arrived last week. Again, it was a bit hit and miss, and I've decided not to renew and try a different beauty box instead. I may review a couple of the products in the box as and when I try them, but from what I've read from other blogs my opinions are pretty much widely shared.
It's been so hot the past couple of weeks and I've been totally paranoid that my deodorant won't do it's job properly!! So I picked up this body spray on offer in Asda for £1 and it smells wonderful, although I must admit it was the packaging that made me go for it in the first place!
On a kind of unrelated note, a week or so ago I won a Facebook competition to win a copy of the latest novel by Guillaume Musso...and I won! I don't think I've ever won anything before haha! I'm looking forward to reading it :)

Apologies for absence!!

Hi bloggies, sorry I haven't been around much lately, I've just started a new job (yey!) and it has kept me very busy! I'm absolutely loving it so far. I've got 38 hours next week so bare with me! Here's a picture of me on my first day looking nervous (you'd think I'd never done this job before!)

Casino Royale!

On Friday night I went out with my mummy, my grandma and my three aunties. We went to a casino in Manchester, had a lovely meal and then spent the evening at the roulette table until 2am! We all started with £10 each, I came home with £30 and mum came home with £200!! It was such a fantastic (and different) night out. I'm going to start saving up so that Karl and I can have a night out there after Christmas. There's restaurants, a cinema and bowling on the same complex so I'd like to do a bit of everything if possible! Anyway, here's some pictures!
Have you ever been to a casino? If not, I'd definitely recommend it! :)

Hoola Girl.

Today I did something that I haven't done in a very long time. I posted a photo of myself on Facebook that was totally natural, i.e. no instagram filters or clever cropping. The reason for my bravery? Bronzer. Or, more specifically Hoola by Benefit. I have owned this bronzer for a good while now, but for some unfathomable reason I stopped using it?! Anyway today I applied it for the first time in ages, and that - coupled with my eyeshadow from my fantastic Mua Heaven and Earth Palette - made me feel absolutely fantastic about myself! I basically applied the bronzer all over my face on top of my normal powder and I was good to go! Here's the picture: 
And here is the bronzer:
