Christmas comes but once a year, and so does your Birthday!

Just a little post filling your guys in on my Christmas/Birthday, as a lot of you know my birthday is on christmas day, so I have two things to celebrate at this time of year. I had a lovely Christmas day, had my nan and step granddad over for Christmas dinner, after dinner they stayed for a little bit longer before setting off home leaving us to relax. Spent the rest of the day watching Christmas tv and chilling out with my parents. On boxing day we literally watched the movies we all got for xmas back to back, then today we took the girls out for a little walk. Once back I had a lovely christmas themed bath with some gorgeous Lush goodies and I am now doing some designing for Vibe Clothing. 

Has everyone else had a lovely Christmas?

Dear Diary ...

I have been so naughty recently, as I have just not blogged in so long. I just feel like I have been so busy, and when I've not been busy I have not felt myself. After breaking up from uni last week, I have been non stop designing. I am looking to launch a new line of t-shirts in the beginning of 2012, I am in the middle of sorting out models and photographers, but I would really like to do a shoot around Oxford then one maybe in London. So my focus has been majority on doing this, and my ladies.

Apart from designing I have just been up to the normal stuff, friends, cinema, nights out and shopping. Nothing overly exciting. I have been working a little more too, just to get a little bit more money, and as I am hoping to increase my contract come new year. Other then the boring normal stuff it is of corse the lead up to Christmas. I really can not believe how fast this year has gone, and yes I am another year older come Christmas Day, just a tad depressing.

Hows everyone else's holidays going? All prepared for Christmas?

P.s. Oh also have a question for you lovely ladies, I having problems designing a font on Photoshop, does anyone have any tips? or sites to buy for a brand?

NEC - Clothes Show Live

The one bad thing about this post is I forgot my camera on the day, and dropped my iPhone which resorted in the screen smashing, so was pretty hard to take pictures while I was at the Clothes Show, but I thought you lovely lot might want a nose at want I got my hands on as the show.

The first thing I managed to get my hands on when we got there was some Models Own, we all got a little to excited when we saw there massive stand at the show. The deal they was doing on the day was buy 3 nail varnishes for £10 and receive a free goody bag, I quickly grabbed the colours above, Pink Lady, Black'n'Red and Aciiied. The goody bag was really good that you got free, must be worth over £25 as you can see in the photo above.

My other favourite bargains are the Illamasqua products, they had an amazing offer of any three items for £10, so I picked up a couple of there cream blushes, which normally retail at £16 and a pure pigment too.  I have only really used there lip gloss, which I wasn't really a fan off, so I'm pretty excited to try out these bits.

I also managed to stock up on Carmex, at the beginning of the day they had the offer of 1 for £2 or 2 for £3. But after thinking about it when walking around, I came back they was selling them all off for 2 for a £1, so I got tonnes :).

On the way out of the event after we had watched the catwalk show, which I must say was brilliant, lots of hot topless male models, is there anything bad about that? We all went to a bag stall which we had saw when we first came in, I ended up buying the bag above, which is a small backpack. I had seen some really cute studded ones about on 'WeHeartIt' and Tumblr, so quickly grabbed this one. I then started too stud it last night, unsure whether to add a few more though, or maybe even some spikes.

All in all it was a really nice day, bar smashing the screen on my phone. Got to see lots of great make up,  fashion and accessory brands, and also the gorge Kirk from TOWIE. 

Did anyone else attend the Clothes Show, What did you make of the day?

This is not a music blog but ... Top Tunes

I know not everyone is interested in the same music, but being a lover of all different types I thought it might be interesting for you guys to see what I have been listening to the most recently. This are my must have tracks, that to be honest I have had on repeat for the last couple of weeks. I hope there is something for everyone, and you find it a little interesting :)

Kelly Clarkson - You Can't Win

This is probably my favourite song at the moment, as for her album. I have always been a fan of Kelly Clarkson. She's got an amazing voice and her songs are always so catchy. If you like 'Mr Know It All' you will love the rest of her album too. This song is one of the up beat ones of her album, and I just love the lyrics they are just so clever.

You Me At Six - Crash

As in my last post I had to include a little You Me At Six, I just love this song, it is off there new album. Which I must say is really good. The song is a slower one of the album, but yet again the lyrics ares just lovely. And Josh's voice is just dreamy.

Jason Derulo - It Girl

Now for abit of Jason, I had never really listened to his music before, but after downloading his album, it was soon on repeat. Such a good party album, and some really good songs on it. This is possibly one of my favourites on the cd, but there are lots more really good ones.

Bruno Mars - Runaway Baby

Yes a bit of Bruno, he is my guilty pleasure. Even though there are a few odd songs on his album that really aren't to my taste. There is a handful I really like, and this is one.

Four Year Strong - Sweet Kerosene

I've always liked FYS but never been a major fan of them, as my heart lies mostly with Set Your Goals. But after listening to there newest album, I have fallen just a little in love with them. Its quite different compared to there older music, but in a good way for me. I think its because it sounds a lot more professional.

Long time due!

Yes, I've been so lame for the past couple of weeks. The first week I had a hand in, so was at uni till late and panicking about my work. So this week, being a nice and chilled out one I have just not wanted to do nothing, I just really haven't been motivated to blog at all, I did record two videos, the first one I hated my hair, the second one was to long to upload, so I just gave up on that too. 

So this post is just a few little clips on what I have been up to :)

Hows everyone else week been?
