Weekend Shopping Spree

I went shopping with my couz at the weekend and ended up buying no clothes but lots of make-up and accessories! When I end up finding no clothes-I love coming home with lots and lots of smaller items to compensate hehe!

Dove have teamed up with Nails Inc who are giving away limited edition nail polish with every two purchases of their beauty finish deodorant at Boots. The two shades include: Havana (pale pastel pink shade) and
Copacabana (bright coral orange shade). It was definitely worth buying four bottles of unnecessary deodorant for as Nail Inc costs £11 each typically which I am never willing to spend. Bargain!

I ended up bringing home four bottles of nail polish including a No7 in 'So Simple' (a beige pastel shade) and a Barry M in 'Melba' which is a pretty peachy shade I have been looking for everywhere =) Boots were also doing '3 for 2' on all eyelashes hence I snapped up a few Eyelure boxes! Love Boots and their special offers I can never resist >.< I bought a new Carmex and the new Maybelline 'Falsies' mascara which I am eager to try as I have read raving reviews about it.

Last but not least my haul of bargain jewellery from Primark. I have an obsession for gold jewellery and have been looking for a big gold cuff for ages however was unwilling to pay £12-15 for one from places like Topshop so when I saw this cuff for £2.50 I was super happy! I also picked up a bow bangle and a cute bracelet too!

Strawberry Picking

Thought I would share with you my experience when I went strawberry-picking last weekend! It was a beautiful summer's day so me and my boyf decided to go out and enjoy the sun and get in touch with nature ;)

The place was called 'Primrose Vale Farm Shop & PYO' situated near the edge of the Cotswolds where you can go and 'pick your own' from the fifteen different crops available throughout the year. Their most popular is their strawberries-which was what I was there for! As it was only early June, there were only strawberries and gooseberries available to pick.

We ended up walking through the rows and rows of strawberries stuffing our faces at the same time! The strawberries were some of the reddest and sweetest strawberries I have ever tasted! We eventually finished with one basket and for a basket of that size, the total came to just £3.50 approx (much more worth it than your typical box from the supermarkets and 10x's sweeter!)

Super sweet strawberry <3

I would definitely recommend you to go and pick your own fruits and veg if you live near something similar as it was definitely worth the extra few miles drive to get some of the most yummy and fresh produce for a cheaper price!

Hello my name is Honey...

So I thought I would introduce to you my lil doggy-the most adorable thing ever (yes I would say that!) Her name is 'Honey' named by my boyf! For those of you that are not familiar with dogs and the different breeds, she is a British Bulldog and is just over 2 years old this year (my baby is growing up fast!). Though she is definitely the smallest fully-grown bully I have ever seen-weighing in at only 14kg and still puppy-sized! Defo great if you were looking for a hand-bag sized bully! I am in love with the non-conventional breeds hence my love for bulldogs with a desire to own a Chow Chow or Shar-Pei one day-I just find them so unique and adorable!

Do you guys own any dogs and what breeds are your faves?

First Blog...First Post...First Time...

So I finally decided to start my own blog after weeks of putting it off! I know that blogs have been around for ages and getting super popular-but I just never got myself round to doing one!

To be honest,  I have always been a blog follower, following blogs and reading about the weird and wonderful things out there in the world...however during the last few weeks I have had lots of free time therefore thought 'Why not start my own blog?' 

Firstly, let me introduce myself...I'm a BBC (British-Born Chinese) from a small countryside town in the South West with a obsession for all things beauty & fashion fabulous (as all us girls are!)...with a special obsession for accessories-in particular jewellery and bags! And finally, I am a dog lover-loving dogs of all shapes and sizes, owning a British Bulldog pup myself :)

For me, this space is for writing about anything and everything that interests me and things I want to share with you guys so  I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I will writing it! By no means am I an expert in the things I write about, they are merely just my personal thoughts and please enjoy! <3
