Update-big thank you

Hello everyone, would just love to say a big thank you to everyone who has left me get well messages.You'll be pleased to hear i am feeling alot better, I've been asleep for most of the week and I've not actually gotten dressed in proper clothes since Tuesday but at least i don't feel so spaced out now! I'm still headachey and have a permanent runny nose(seriously its like a tap!) but I'm starting to get cabin fever now which means i must be on the mend!!
Unfortunately i seem to have passed the flu on to the boy, so now its his turn to be stuck at home, and he hasn't stopped moaning(typical bloke). Its quite annoying as its his birthday next week and i was taking us to Manchester this weekend as his present. I've not been able to go out shopping to get him anything so I've ordered him this belt which he really needs and will get him something else when we're both allowed out!
I'm sorry for the lack of interesting posts, I'm working on it! x

Oink oink

Today i've been diagnosed with Swine Flu. I don't feel too bad today just very hot and cold and headachey. The doctor said i'll probably feel worse over the next couple of days.
I've opted out of Tamiflu as i'm young and healthy and the doc thinks my body will be able to fight it off with no problem. I'm now in quarantine.
Expect lots of bored posts from me!!

Weekend haulage

I dragged the boy to Leeds on Sat as it was a gorgeous day and i wanted to have a look in a couple of shops, then today i went to the local shopping centre with my mummy on the hunt for some shoes for a wedding she is going too. Heres my buys!

Firstly i got this dress from Primark, i love it soo much, my mum couldn't believe it was from Primark, i like it worn with leggings for daytime and maybe with gold sandals and bare legs for evenings out.
This headband in the Accessorise sale, the picture does it no justice.

I got these babies which i love, i don't tend to look in Dorothy Perkins at the shoes but they had some gorgeous ones in. Think these look cute with tights too.

Back to Primark, i got a basic pearl headband, nude ribbon chain necklace with bow(i might change the ribbon to a navy one) and cream vintage look belt with rose clasp.

Anyone else been shopping this weekend?

At first i was afraid, i was petrified

Today i had my long awaited hospital appointment for my throat so i was a bit nervous.

I wa expecting them to just question me and make me open my mouth and say ahhhhhhhh so you can imagine my shock when the doctor said they were going to put a camera up my nose and then back down my throat. Thinking about it now, i'm glad i didn't know about it in advance or i would have worried! They numbed it a little but it still hurt a bit and was uncomfortable and then my face was numb for like 2 hours after. The outcome of today is that i'm on some different medication for 2 months and then i have to go back again.

I used my Avon Purple Haze quad today, i posted about it a couple of weeks ago so thought i'd let you know how good it is.
Bearing in mind the £5 i paid for it, its fab, the colours are quite pigmented and lasted nearly the whole day and they were easy to blend together. I wouldn't say the quality is as good as MAC but its brilliant value for money,

In other notes i saw the boy today and he was gorgeous and lovely as always x

Blackpool and haul!!!

Well Blackpool was amazing. Pure tacky and i loved it!
We spent Saturday at the Pleasure Beach going on the rides and eating the most lovely garlic bread ever. I'm a bit of a wimp when it comes to rides but convinced my friends to come onto the Veteran Carousel and the Alice in Wonderland ride(this actually scared one of my friends).I also loved the dancing water show.
The Tower
The Carosel
Me and the mad hatter. I'm totally soaked in this picture from a water ride.
Welcome to Alice's Wonderland
The water show

Last night we went out and i finally wore my Mabelle dress, i don't have pics yet as my friend has them on her camera but i'll post as soon as i get them. We all got suitably drunk and i managed to spend about £15 all night as a man my friend met was buying us drinks for most of the night. Highlights of the weekend include meeting Postman Pat(and Jess!), being kissed by an Octopus, attempting to do THE lift from Dirty Dancing(and failing!) and my friend breaking the bed in the B&B which had us in fits.
We stayed right by the the centre of town so it would have been not to go to the shops. New Look had the hugest sale on so thats where we went!
Black and cream double strap Mary Janes- these are gorgeous and i think Chanelesque
Tights in red, sheer black with spots and neon pink.
Black platform Mary Janes, these are massive!
Stripey bag with bow detail, perfect seaside bag
I also got a gorgeous black shift for work with ruffles on the front and back and a waist belt.
This week i've also been to The Body Shop and gotton Peach body butter, the oui oui oui lip butter, blusher, eyeshadow and concealer. I love it all!

Giveaway ends tonight! x

1 more sleep until the weekend:) Giveaway reminder

Lets hope its a good one!
I've got a busy weekend planned starting with a trip into town after work tomorrow to get some essentials as its payday WOOOHOOO, then i'm meeting the boy and we're off to the cinema(if we can agree on what to see). The early on Sat i'm off to Blackpool with the girls, i've never been before so i'm so excited. We're spending the day at the pleasure beach then back to our B&B for beautifying and then we're off round the town at night. My All Saints Mabelle dress is getting its first outing yay. We're heading back home at some point on Sunday, not sure what i'll be doing it depends on the hangover i have.

Anyway heres a pic of me in the All Saints dress, i'm not going to wear it with grey tights but i just happened to have them on!
I'll try to get a picture of the back at the weekend, the straps are amazing.

What are your weekend plans? Make it a good one x

I dyed my hair

Arghh i've been dying my hair for years and never had any problems. Then today i decided to try a new colour, Schwarzkopf Live Unlimited Gloss in Midnight Red, thinking it'd be a nice dark browny red.

So i put the dye on, then washed it off after 30 mins, dried my hair off, looked in the mirror and what is looking back at me.............

Black hair! Argghh i used to dye my hair black and have been growing it out over the last 3 years(slow progress!) so now it seems i'm back to square one! I'm hoping after a few days it will fade because at the moment i see no red at all! This is me a few years ago with black hair as i still can't get photos onto my laptop.

Photo tag

As my cable for my phone is still not up and running, i've tagged myself from Girl With the Golden Touch's photo tag
Basically you go to the 6th folder on your photos and then select the 6th photo, post it and explain the story behind it.
My 6th folder is photos from my brothers wedding and the photo is of their first dance.
I thought i'd show the back of her dress too.

It was a gorgeous day 2 years ago and i was one of the bridesmaid. They are happy as ever and expecting their first baby in Decemeber.
