It's now only 8 days until I'm off to Ibiza for a week! The middle picture above shows Cala Llonga which is the part of the island I'll be going to and the resort in the middle of the very badly drawn circle is where I'll be staying.

As you can see, my suitcase is nowhere near ready yet. Pretty much everything in it clothes-wise has to be washed, dried and somehow made to fit in there. I've also got to sort out my bathroom bits and pieces, makeup and try and get a few pairs of shoes in there too. I can see this being a bit of a nightmare already but fingers crossed it'll work out somehow...

Going anywhere awesome on holiday this year? Leave me a comment below.
Thanks for reading :)

Just a few bits and pieces (haul)

I had a bit of an urge to go shopping a few days ago and even though I can't really afford it at the moment it's always nice to treat yourself once in a while! So, here's what I bought:

1. Black Skinny Jeans from New Look (HERE
I've been after a pair of black jeans for a while now and these fit perfectly. Only £14.99 too which was great for my bank balance!

2. Clear Mini Elastic Hairbands
Bought these for holiday as I'm going to be plaiting my hair a lot, they look a little better than standard black hairbands which was all I had. These were from Boots but you can find them in pretty much any beauty/drug store.

3. Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover
I probably don't even need to explain why I bought this as it's been talked about online for quite a while now! I have yet to try it out but my current nail polish is looking a little rough so I'm thinking of trying it tonight and maybe putting a review up tomorrow.

4. Topshop Bubble Hem Dress 
This is a actually a recent purchase from ebay which came in the post yesterday. Got it for the great price of £4.99! I've also won a couple of other bits which I'll do a post about once they're here.

5. Books- Divergent by Veronica Roth, One Perfect Summer by Paige Toon. Also latest issue of Company magazine
I've been wanting to read Divergent for ages and as Waterstones currently have a buy one get one half price offer on for summer (in store only) I thought now would be a great time to pick it up. One Perfect Summer was also in this offer so I grabbed that to take on holiday with me, seems like a perfect by the pool/on the beach kind of book.

6. Awesome notebook and purple pen
I've bought myself a fancy notebook and pen for jotting down thoughts and ideas especially for this blog. The notebook has loads of little pockets and sections inside so it's super easy to keep organised, theres even a little zipped up pocket at the back, which is pretty cool! I chose a nice purple pen to write in it as purple is my favourite colour! Both of these were from Paperchase.

Do you have any of these products yourself? What do you think of them?
As always, thanks for reading :)

Pintrest is definitely one of my go-to websites when I'm in need of a little inspiration, so I thought i'd share a few of my favourite bits I've discovered this week :)

Mini Shopping Haul

So I met up with a few friends today and ended up purchasing a few things from Boots. Nothing super exciting but I wanted to share it anyway, as that's what a blog is for, right ;)

#1- Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes | I've heard good things about these and as I'm off on holiday in a few weeks (Ibiza, woo!) I thought these would be good to use during the day as a way of freshening up whilst by the pool or on the beach.

#2-  Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation (100 Ivory) | Again, I've heard good things about this foundation and I've been after a new one for a while so I thought why not try this. I've been using various BB Creams for a couple of months now ( Garnier Miracle Skin Perfecter in Light and No7 Beautiful Skin in Fair) which are both very good.

#3- Essie nail polish in Sexy Divide and Beach Bum Blu | I've finally picked up something from Essie! The colours on offer are stunning and they're great for summer. At £7.99 each, they're definitely not at the cheaper end of nail polish but they're affordable.

L-R: Beach Bum Blu, Sexy Divide

Have you used any of these products before? If you have, let me know what you think :)

May Favourites

I thought a favourites post would be a good way to kick off this blog, so here's a few things I found myself loving throughout May;

 *Barry M Nail Paint in 217. I recently found this in my room and have fallen in love with it all over again. The colour is just gorgeous.

*Entwined by Heather Dixon. I have yet to finish this but I am loving it so far. Very addictive and I can't wait to see how it ends.

I also bought these a few weeks ago:

*l-r: Love, Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli, Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare & Wither by Lauren Destefano.

*Lost. One of televisions most addictive yet confusing shows of all time. I tend to get pretty bored in the evenings so I decided to start this from the beginning as it's been a few years since it finished.

*I've also found myself browsing these websites pretty frequently: pintrest and weheartit. Pintrest is amazing for a bit of everything, from make up to cooking to home decor, it's got it all. Love looking through all the images and getting ideas on things I can do myself. Weheartit is great for images to use on sites such as this one or tumblr (always linking back to the image of course).
