Catch up...


I've been a bit absent for a few days as i've had so much on! I'm back at uni and i've got loads of coursework due in and lots of new lectures to start so it's been a bit hectic! I also have my many job applications to finish off!

Anyway my Cath Kidston finally arrived, rather annoyingly an hour after I left to go back to uni, luckily my parents bought it up today. I'm a little disappointed, the bag is a lot smaller than I thought, I did enquire to the dimensions when I rang up but it's still a lot smaller, it definitely won't fit anything in for uni and it's a bit expensive to just keep for a handbag so i'm thinking of sending it back. I've found a brilliant website that sells lovely leather satchels though so i'll let you know if I do decide to get the leather satchel!

We had a bit of snow yesterday but thankfully it didn't settle and has all melted today, i'm hoping it stays that way as I really really cannot be bothered with the snow again, especially having to walk to uni in it!

I'm on the search for some new make up at the moment so there may be a make up related post coming soon.......

Harry Potter, Harry Harry Potter......

Well for anyone who doesn't know me well I am a HUGE Harry Potter geek, I know everything there is to know about the books, and have all of the special editions etc. it's ridiculous! So of course I am RIDICULOUSLY excited about the Harry Potter land they are opening in Florida this Spring! This blog has posted some brilliant photos of the park as it looks at the moment, Hogwarts looks incredibly, a lot bigger than I imagined, I cannot wait to go, it probably will not be until 2011, but hopefully this will make it even better as they will have had time to iron out any problems by then! For more info see the official website!!

Anyway that's it from me today, unfortunately not a lot has happened this weekend in order to update, however it's exam results tomorrow so hopefully they'll go ok!

Weekend Baking

Well as it's the weekend I decided to do some baking, I found a lovely cookie recipe so thought i'd try it out. After a quick trip to Sainsburys to get chocolate chips I set about making them! The recipe was very easy to follow and they looked amazing when they came out of the oven, they tasted just as good as they looked, I ate three in one go! So I would definitely recommend this recipe!

I'm watching Little Women now, I absolutely love this film, I have a bit of a love for Christian Bale, and it's nice to see him playing a nice calm role for a change!!

Beautiful things...

Well Cath Kidston was very naughty this week as it decided to launch it's new spring/summer range which is lovely! There are some fab new prints and best of all they have launched a blackberry phone case!!!! Now of course I couldn't resist, instead of a boring black case I am now the envy (hopefully) of everyone with a beautiful bath flowers blackberry case unfortunately whilst looking for the case I also happened to stumble onto their bag section and accidentally ordered a mini saddle bag I should be the proud owner of the bag in a few days, so I shall update then with how beautiful it is, until then here's a picture!

Other than the joys of Cath Kidston I unfortunately don't have anything else to report, my life at the moment is full of Land law woes and applications for summer placements, both of which are immensely boring and I keep procrastinating and finding things to do, hence the buying of bags and blackberry cases!

On another note my friend's birthday present showed up from America and it is AMAZING!! She is a bit in love with ladybugs and this lovely lady had some great ladybug charms! They arrived today and they are the cutest thing ever, I can't wait to give it to her! And for all of you who haven't yet visited etsy please give it a try, most of the things are handmade etc. and there are some amazing things on there, it can unfortunately get a bit addictive but you are bound to get something unique that no-one else will own! I have an etsy shop but haven't managed to make anything for a while so i'll update when I do!

Right back to the applications......

A lovely weekend..

Well I had a somewhat spontaneous weekend, Saturday was spent trying to do my essay plan for my Land law essay which didn't go amazingly well. However Sunday morning was the start of an exciting weekend! My lovely boyfriend arranged for us to go to the Christchurch Harbour Hotel for the weekend.

After a quick stop to get petrol we were on our way to Dorset, we had lovely weather down in Somerset this weekend so it was a really nice drive up there and for once I wasn't driving which is a nice change! The hotel is absolutely amazing, we only had a "bronze" room but it was incredible, the bed was amazing with a beautiful view of the sea. Our deal included unlimited use of the spa and a three course dinner. The spa was a lovely relaxing way to spend Sunday afternoon and the three course dinner was just amazing, with the finale being the best pudding ever, a chocolate and banana cigar!

Today we both had some spa treatments, I had an amazing facial, my first ever, and it was so amazing it made an hour feel like 10 minutes and I nearly fell asleep, I just wish I was rich enough to have a regular facial. We'll definitely be going back to the hotel, all of the staff were very attentive and friendly and it was just a really lovely, relaxing break!

However now we are back to the real world I really have to make a start with my coursework as it's only two weeks until the hand in date, I also need to finish applications for vacation schemes, so my word head is firmly screwed on, but it was nice to get a relaxing start to the long months ahead!

Snow snow go away....

Well for the past week and a bit we've had SNOW in the UK, you know that white fluffy stuff, and of course this has bought pretty much the whole country to a stand still! Now I understand that we do not get snow often and as such we are not prepared for it, but I still have to admit it's a bit ridiculous that everyone just starts to panic. All the bread and milk in my local shops were sold out and every single news item seemed to be on snow!

Thankfully it has been getting warmer and warmer for the past few days and my car told me that it was 12 degrees today!!! Positively tropical, and we actually had rain last night!! (I think the first time ever i've been thankful to see rain!) so we now have no white stuff left at all!

However it wasn't all bad, I made a pretty decent (if small) snowman called Derek! Here's some photographic evidence as he unfortunately doesn't exist anymore :(



I'm new to the whole blogging movement but as it seems so popular now I thought i'd jump on the bandwagon!

I haven't fully decided the purpose of this blog yet, the majority of it will probably be about clothes as my favorite past time is most definitely shopping! Then this will be mixed in with some cute recipes, my thoughts on current affairs and anything else I find that I think other people should know about!

Anyway if anyone reads this Thank you, and if you think it's rubbish well thanks for checking it out anyway!
