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

I Love Presents :)

I'm hardly ever ill so when i do get ill my mum always buys me a present out of the blue.
Last time she bought be a me to you bear but i think i may love this present even more because it'sexactly the sort of thing i looooooove!

We have a farmers market where i live on the first sunday of every month and it was on today, guess what my mum got me?

Bath Bombs!

She said that they had a massive stall with lodes of freshly made products like Lush but a bit cheaper.

They're so much prettier and smell better than Lush's ones and came in this beautiful packaging, all i could keep saying was omg omg thankyou thankyou!

They come in a box of 6 for £6.50

I will definately have to check this stall out next month.
