Lust List

I am in no way taking credit for this idea, i've seen variations of it all over blogger and thought it was cute.

Every week i'll be posting the things that i'm craving (but of course can't afford, as of yesterday i'm officially unemployed lol)

Juicy Couture Heart Puff Earrings - ASOS - £39
Browsing through the ASOS clearance i found these sweet little earrings. They come in gold and silver but i'd go for gold as my collections missing some casual everyday gold earrings.
Eiffel Tower Bookends - TK Maxx - £7.99 each
I saw one of the pair in my local TK Maxx and thought it was lush - i love anything to do with Paris and these would really go with the theme of my room. My mum however, thought it was hideous so as there wasn't a pair, i left it and hoped it would go into their clearance. I went to a different store a week later and found the other one and went into my local store to buy the first one but someone had snapped it up! I was a bit gutted when i couldn't get the pair and now i've found another one at a different store so i'm goin to snap them up when i get some dosh!
Dolce & Gabbana Rose The One 75ml - House of Fraser - £63
I loved this when it came out but i already have so many perfumes so couldn't justify it. Now i've got bored with my usual scents, i want this one so i might splash out soon.
OPI Shrek Forever After Collection
In particular the two pales on the left end, the blue and lilac but i've just stocked up on barry m, my mum says i could open up a nail bar with my collection...i wish!!

Penguin Classics Mugs - John Lewis - £9
I saw these mugs in John Lewis last week and really want a Wuthering Heights one as it's one of my favourites to read in the winter - Heathcliff makes me swoon even though he's a bit of a dick.
But at the minute i just can't justify spending £9 on a mug!


I'm back!...sort of?

I can't believe it's been a little under a year since i last blogged!

So much about me and my life has changed so i thought i'd give the whole blogging thing another go now that i've finished sixth form (YAY! :D)

Since i've been away the blogging world has changed ALOT so i'm gonna try some new things that i hope you'll like.

Please bare with my while i try and find my blogging identity again

July 7th London Bombings..x

This post isn't going to be about makeup or beauty, it's about what happened in London 4 years ago.

My Internet collapsed last night so i couldn't post it then but i still wanted to pay tribute to the 52 people who lost their lives that day and also to those who're still suffering today.

4 years ago on the 7th July 2005, four bombs exploded around London, three on the underground and one on a double decker bus killing 52 people and injuring hundreds.

I can still remember that day, i was actually in London on a school trip to Greenwich and i'm sure everyone else in the UK can remember where they were and what they were doing at the exact moment they found out.

I do feel that yesterday Michael Jackson's memorial service was given preference over remembering those innocent people and i'd just like to pay tribute to them because it was also a day for them.

A beautiful memorial was unveiled yesterday in London's Hyde Park. It's a very simple structure of 52 beams, one for every victim of the attacks with a plack for all of their names and i think it it's a perfect tribute to them.

May we never forget that day and only hope that the government will finally honour the victims and their families by giving them the inquest that they deserve into how the bombers plotted the attacks.
Rest In Peace xx
