Reading: Watership Down- Richard Adams.
Fantastic news! I have won Dami from StyleandBeautie giveaway! Shes a great girl with a fantastic blog- so check her out!

I've never won anything before in my life, and to be honest I never expect to I just like the excitement of having a go. Dami kindly allowed me to choose any lipstick I wished from MAC so I choose the Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Extended Play- a beautiful red lippy I've had my eye on for a few months now. I feel so special! It is a fantastic end to the long slog of dissertation writing.

I've done very little these last 3 days, and I would be fast asleep (as I have the morning off) but I'm an early riser so was wide awake at 7:30. Oh well I can always try again at the weekend. Other than work I've just been in a state of relax (mostly asleep or wedding talk with my sister), but I have had time for some self-love.

I've had the chance to cover myself in LUSH Love Lettuce mask. I'm probably the only 22 year old in the world with the same skin problems I had when I was 12- I'm very very prone to breakouts -more so on my back :( - but the last 3 months I've used LUSH products and my skin has improved 1000%.

I've probably tried everything from prescriptions, over the counter, antibiotics and different contraception and nothing had worked like LUSH products. So when I get the time to add a mask to my body (face, neck, shoulder, chest and back) its makes me a very happy girl. I would encourage anyone to try out the products- the shampoos and amazing and last FOREVER and the soap leaves a fantastic scent on your skin for hours. Plus the products are all either vegan or vegetarian!

I've also caught up on some much needed reading. Although I do have a kindle, it got into a little bit of trouble and I've had a replacement delivered but yet to upload any books. Fortunately I  have my favourite in paperback (I love paper books!) so have been reading Watership Down. It's in my top 3 all time most loved books, and if you haven't read it yet I urge you to give it a go.

I've been enjoying all this time off (well the few hours I get to myself after work) and promise to throw myself into blogging from now on- so check back again soon! I'm thinking about a giveawy as well- I'm just not sure what yet- but I want to say a massive thank you to eeveryone who checks out my blog and follows me somehow.

  1. I love Lush products! They're so refreshing on the skin. Love Lettuce is a favourite of mine, too!

    1. My skin feels amazing for day after- and my hair has never been this great!

  2. Oh my god, Watership Down is also in my Top 3 all time books (and movies) as is the other Richard Adams book Plague Dogs (the movie is excellent too). I get so invested in both stories, I have read both over and over.
    My version of Watership Down I got for 10p on ebay a few years ago - what a bloody bargain :)
    Hazel is my hero!
