#37 We All Love A Good Treat.

After a time of self indulgence, we love to look after ourselves and start the year a  head looking bright eyed and bushy tailed. For most this involves dieting, drinking plenty of water and eating endless amounts of fresh fruit and vegetables and exercising lots. But for me, this isn't so. This is because I know that I won't stick to it and somewhere along the line I will slip up. So what I like to do is give myself a good pamper! This doesn't mean that I'll do this instead of trying to be healthy. Of course I'll try but personally I believe that the answer to looking fabulous is by looking after yourself in every way. After a stressful shift at work, or a long day at college the best way I find to help me unwind is by having an amazing bath. Now my bestfriend knows me so well and for Christmas she brought me some lovely bath smellies!

These bath smellies are just so cute in their floral packaging! The first box is a box of 6 Roses, which funnily enough are rose scented too!

 Now I'm not a fan of Rose scented things at all and actually found them over powering when I opened them, but popped in my bath and night with a few candles they are heavenly!

 The second box is a box of Lavender products which include a flannel, lavender scented Roses, lavender bath crystals, lavender shower gel, lavender bath cream and lavender body lotion. Now it may seem like a lot of Lavender to you, but this is my perfect idea of relaxation. Don't get me wrong I do love a good bit of Soap and Glory or even some wacky bath bombs like the ones in Lush, but after a hard day a soak in the bath with Lavender is just the thing to help you unwind and get ready for bed. So this is my number one top tip for looking great... bubble baths and relaxation before bed, along with smiling and be happy... of course!

#36 Most Wonderful Time Of The Year.

Good afternoon you wonderful people! I hope you all had a very merry Christmas! Sorry about the awful lack of blogging! The Christmas season is a very busy one for me as I have such a large family so the past few weeks I have spent rushing here there and everywhere in preparation for the big day, it is only now that I am getting time to myself!

So I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and got well and truly spoilt, I know I did. This has honestly been one of the best Christmas's I have ever had, I feel so lucky to have been so spoilt and to have had such an amazing family around me. On another note I want to know what all my lovely readers got for Christmas. I love being nosey and finding out. I know alot of people get slated for posting what they got for Christmas, but I don't care, I'm going to do it anyways! I'm not going to give you a long list of what a got, just a few snaps of everything together. So for all you people that are going to leave nasty comments... go ahead! I don't care! You just look silly! This is for all the other nosey bloggers like myself! Also if you have done a post on what you got from Santa leave me the link, so I can be extra nosey! ;)

So yes, I was totally spoilt and feeling like the luckiest girl alive!

#34 A Message In A Bottle

If you're a true follower you will have seen my tweet last night and noticed that the 'What I'm Currently Reading' on the right hand side of my blog has changed. Yes I finally finished reading Message In A Bottle by Nicholas Sparks, also author of The Notebook, and I have to tell you, I have never cried at a book as much as I have this one! It is so much better than The Notebook, believe it or not!

The book really is a a true romantic and you will fall head over heels in love with the main character Garrett, just like I did. The book is set between two states in America and is written in such a beautiful way that you really can picture what it would be like walking the busy streets of Boston or taking a boat out and roaming the sea in North Carolina.

I don't want to say too much about the plot of this book as it really will give it away. But it is not until the unforeseeable ending until the tears start to endlessly role. After it being recommended to me it really is one of my all-time favourite books and I urge everyone who is in need of some romance and happiness in their lives to read it!  

Also, Don't watch the film first as I am struggling to get into it after the reading the book and am fining that the book is so much better like most cases!

#33 What Have I Been Up To...

Sorry for the severe lack of posts guys, I have been seriously ill and on Tuesday I had an emergency doctors appointment so they could try and find out what's wrong with me. Turns out I have Croup, which is a viral infection in the throat and airways. Its most common in kids so if any of you have kids you'll know what it's like. Its basically a massive cold/flu, except for kids its more serious and life threatening as at that young age they don't know how to clear their airways. So I'm on a lovely diet of antibiotics!

I've also been ridiculously busy, which hasn't been helping the illness either, but I just hate on missing out and because I've been bed bound for practically all this week I haven't been able to go out and about and look at all the beauty products like I usually do during my time at college. So this is just a short post to say I will be returning and I'll leave you with some pictures of a great party I went to for a friends 18th!

Also there are only 9 days left to enter my giveaway, so don't forget to enter here
Enjoy the rest of your evening!!
