Just alittle mummy-daughters time.

While Mr H was out gaming, me and the girls decided to take alittle girly shopping trip into town to spend the last of their Christmas pennies. Our first stop was Build-A-Bear, we had a clear idea of what both girls wanted thanks to online browsing K wanted an Elsa teddy complete with full outfit and T just wanted to buy her Ted 'blue' the Elsa dress. Turns out K had ideas to make her Elsa just that little bit different so she's now the proud mum of an all singing (let it go) Elsa ted that's on holiday visiting Ariel so is all mermaided up. T also changed her mind mid visit she didn't want the Elsa dress but a Batman costume before changing it back upon seeing what her big sis purchased. Don't you just love kids.. 

After that lovely hour I decided to treat them both to a new lush goodie each which took  nearly another hour as they were like kids in a sweetshop with all the different colours. T even referred to the store as a little rainbow shop how cute is that and a perfect description for lush store. 

After much deliberation and many 'what do you think mummy?' and 'this is so pretty' they finally made their minds up and this is what they picked..

Christmas Gift to Myself the SoothingSista Memebox

Today I thought I'd share a quick unopening thoughts and pics from my SoothingSista Memebox which I bought for myself and stashed under our Christmas tree. SoothingSista is a YouTube vblogger who always looks immaculate in every picture and video, I'm very jealous I wish I looked that good! 

I love the little product cards that Memebox include in there boxes, and these cards also include a little info about who SoothingSista is and her style. As just a side comment about the design of the box, it's pretty and girly without screaming it in your face I love it and I'll definitely be keeping this one.

Last week of using up my sample products in December..

So it's taken a while but I've finally got round to typing up my thoughts on my final week of samples and to be fair it was a pretty mixed week product wise.

Here's what samples I managed to get through in the last week of December..

Disney Store Sale Finds

So the other day me and my mum decided to have a little post Christmas shopping trip and by shopping trip I actually mean meeting up for coffee, cake, gossip and a wander round the sales without my girls in tow. 

During our wander we popped into the Disney Store, it's one of my girls favourite shops (they adore the dresses) and they have a sale on, which is reason enough for me personally. They had quite a lot reduced for girls and boys and I really struggled to decided on just what to buy, I was looking for things for my youngest daughters birthday (it not til the end of spring but I like to be super organised when I comes to birthdays, I get it from my mum) but I didn't want to spend a small fortune, so I made a beeline for the sale baskets and started rummaging and found these.. 

Sleeping Beauty Pencil Tin Set (Reduced To £2.39)

This girly pencil tin contains 20 colouring pencils, a plain paper pad and a sharpener. We have tons of crayon, felts and colouring pencils littering our house but I know she'll love these as they are super girly and will be perfect to go in the new pencil case her Nanny bought her for school.

Yay my Lush Boxing Day order arrived..

After the craziness of Christmas Day there is no chance on this Earth of me getting up early to go shopping no matter how good the sales are. I prefer to spend my Boxing Day chilling out at home, well as much as I can with my house looking like a toy shop threw up in it.. 

Anyway I curl myself up with a brew on the sofa, a box of Quality Street at my side and browsed the sales online and I'm made up with the few bargains I purchased from Lush were I picked up a few sale goodies as well as some full priced products I've had my eye on for awhile. They arrived earlier this week and I love them, here's what I treated myself to.. 

The Christmas Hedgehog (reduced to £1.35)
How cute is this floral scented little guy? I just love him. He's made from Shea & Cocoa Butters and Lavender, Rose & Ylang Ylang Oil.

I went on a little shopping trip this morning..

Evening lovelies, hope you've all had a fab day, mine started awful as it was pouring down (I got soaked), which is just typical for the first school run of 2015. As the weather was crappy Mr H decided to cheer us both up with breakfast out followed by a nosy round the shops. 

The first place I nipped into was Boots where I picked up a few bargains in the toys section before moving into the baby section where I picked up a half price baby massage gift set for my step-sister who's due to have her first baby soon, I'm super excited to meet the newest baby in our family. I also had a quick nosy round the reduced Christmas section and couldn't resist buying myself a treat. I use to love dying my hair back in collage and for the past year or so I've really fancied shaking up my style a bit but I thought I was a little too old for it to be honest but after chatting to my friend (of the brightly coloured hair, pink being the last shade) she pointed out that 31 wasn't old and that I should just do it at worst I hate it and it washes out. So as soon as I saw this Spin The Bleach Bottle set reduced from £12 to £6 I knew I wanted it, I just need to find the confidence to actually use the stuff now.
