Good evening, how has everyone been? As you can see I have been pretty MIA from the blogging world over the last few years (literally - years!!). I read back over a few of my posts and actually cringed a little bit at how poor my writing was - although its lovely to recognise growth within myself, I find thats something most people struggle to do see. Even though I haven't been writing I haven't stopped reading.
This year i have promised myself i will be true to myself and not worry about what other people think of me or my opinions and just say yes more - cliché, i know.
I hope some of you are still interested in what i have to say and will stick around for the journey.
Im now 23 and have moved out of my childhood home so a lot has changed and a lot of growing up has been done, I'm looking forward to writing about things that are important to me. I'm fed up of seeing 'perfect' Instagram accounts, blogs and youtube videos. Im hoping to cut the bullshit and keep things real. Ups, downs and everything in-between.
Look forward to getting to know some of you.
Thanks for reading - let me know what your goals are for this year.

I was tagged by the lovely Taylor from Tailored Beginnings to do this tag, I haven't really seen this one before and I am excited to do it, I am going to to tag anyone and everyone who reads this and leave me a comment so I can check yours out...
Here are the rules...
Here are the rules...
State that the tag was created by The Beau Bow!
Tag more beauty bloggers!
Title this as I've shown to show what tag this is!
Always state rules in your post!!
1. Name a beauty routine you rarely do
I never ever ever curl my eyelashes, I own eyelash curlers but I just don't use them.
2. Is washing your makeup brushes you do regularly?
Err no. I have a stupid amount of make up brushes and I usually wait until they are all dirty before I realise there are no clean ones left and I have no choice but to wash them.
3. How long will you last with a chipped nail varnish?
Not long at all its one of the most annoying things ever if I get one chipped nail they all have to be redone.
4. How long do you put off replacing/buying a beauty or nail polish product if you need it?
I love to shop so If i need to replace a product Its usually an excuse for a big spend up, so I like to get them straight away.
5. What is your worst beauty habit?
Not wearing sun cream, I hate to think what my skin will look like in 40 years.
6. Name something none-beauty related that you put off all the time
Cleaning, Im a generally messy person and clutter doesn't bother me so things have to get pretty bad for me to finally give in a tidy my room.
7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready until the last minute or not?
I enjoy the getting ready process so I try and give myself enough time to get ready so Im not rushed.
8. Can you commit to spending bans?
No, I don't think I have ever even attempted a spending ban.
9. How organised is your makeup and nail polish collection?
Not organised at all, I find beauty products all over the house, the car, my boyfriends house, I just can't seem to keep it all in one place.
10. What is the longest time you've gone without writing a blog post?
This is my first post back after a 2 month gap, so I guess 2 months.
Thanks for reading

Now for the second Lush Easter product and this one is a lot more exciting I almost wish this was a permanent product.
This is a 'Fluffy Egg' and is priced at £2.95, this is an egg shaped bath bomb and it is on the larger side you could easily get two baths out of this if you cut it in half.
If like me you loooveeee Snow Fairy and Christmas you will be obsessed with this sweet, candy floss, girly smell. It turns the water a beautiful pink, the next morning I could still slightly smell it.
I will be stocking up on this bath bomb It could possibly be my new favorite.

As its Easter I thought id try and make this wees post a bit more themed to I went into lush and picked up a few bits from their Easter collection.
The first thing I tried was 'Hoppity Poppity', It is a cute little rabbit and will cost you £2.50.
The scent is very mild so If you don't like some of the stronger smells lush are known for this is for you. It is full of Lime Oils, Lavender and Violet so it is soothing and a great one to relax with.
It is a very fast fizzer it had almost vanished within 20 seconds of being put into the bath, it claims to have popping candy hidden inside but I cant say I noticed that.
It left a very very very subtle tint of pink to the water but nothing to exciting the bath bomb was nice but not something I would rush out to try again.
Thanks for reading, and look out for more Easter bath products this week

Every time I see someone in a nice hat I always wish I could pull one off, Im fine with a beanie and I can even somehow manage to think I look ok in a straw hat in the summer but when it comes to big, floppy statement hats I think that as soon as I put it on everyone will laugh.
When I see them in the shops I try it on, look in the mirror and take it off as quickly as I can,hoping that know one saw me.
But I was in Primark picking up my usual basics and I saw one of the hats I'd been wanting to pull off so I grabbed it and put it in my already very full basket.
I had every intention of playing around with it at home, trying to make it work with a few different outfits and hairstyles realising that I would look silly and take it back.
When I got home from shopping and was showing my boyfriend the things Id brought I tried on the hat and to my surprise he didn't burst out laughing (and he would, we are very honest with each other, if one of us doesn't like something we say it) He thought it looked ok and so did my mum so the next day we went out to a pub and I wore the hat!!!
Now when we were buying drinks I was sure the lady behind the bar was looking at me in a strange way but I think that I was paranoid about trying something new, kind of like when you wear a bright lipstick for the first time you make yourself believe everyone else you see thinks you look like a drag queen.
I put a photo from the day on Instagram and was surprised at how many people complimented me on the hat.
So now I feel like me and that hat are starting to get along. What do you think?

Karma Bubble Bar was a new product for me, I don't usually get drawn to fruity smells but I thought i'd try something different. It has the scent of Orange and Patchouli it is also full of sweet orange oil, lemon grass oil, pine oil and elemi oil. You feel the oils on your skin after the bath so there is no need for a moisturizer.
I only used half the bar at a time so the water didn't turn that orange but I imagine if you use the entire thing it would be a really vibrant colour. Using half did produce a lot of bubbles and they lasted the entire bath unlike a few products that seem to vanish as your relaxing.
The product itself was lovely I just cant seem to make my self enjoy the fruity scent, it reminds me of a bathroom cleaning product.
Have you tried Karma Bubble Bar?
