Soap and Glory: The Righteous Butter

Soap and Glory: The Righteous Butter
I got this in a set for Christmas. Again as with most Soap and Glory products I had been dying to try it out but did not have the funds to buy it. Seems to be the story of my life lately!I am a die hard fan of Palmers coco butter and have been since I discovered it at the age of 14. I suffer from extremely dry skin and I found that it was the only thing that worked for me. I swear by it and am constantly recommending it to everyone. Not much has ever lived up to it! I have no time for thin sloppy body lotions. It has to be thick and smell lovely haha! Sorry for the blurry picture below, I didn't realise it at the time and have used it all up so cannot take another picture!When I opened the pot I was how gorgeous it smelt which to be honest is fairly common with Soap and Glory products. It was lovely and thick. It made me skin feel so soft all day. I put it on after a shower in the morning and my legs still felt lovely by the time I went to bed. This is a huge plus in my books! The only thing I didn't like is the fact it didn't spread very far. You only really need a few dollops of Palmers to moisturise a whole leg but with this you needed quite a few more. Hence I'd used all the pot in three days.

I don't think I will be buying it again, not because I don't like it, but simply just because it does not last very long. My funds will not allow for me to buy it frequently. Having said that once I get a full time job I can see a few purchases coming along!


I think your amazing just the way you are

Today is my four year anniversary with my boyfriend and i'm feeling quite sentimental and soppy today. It really is hard to believe that four years have passed since we first met in Sixth Form. He tried to talk to me and apparently I completely ignored him which I cannot remember at all! He thought I was extremely stuck up but really i'm just very shy when it comes to new people and sometimes this come across as rude.
He really is my other half, best friend and confindent rolled into one. I don't think I can find anyone else better suited to me. He is one of thes kindest people I know, always putting other people's thoughts before his. I honestly do not know what I would do without him.

This is one of my favourite pictures, we just both look so young and happy. It was back in the day when we spent every weekend completely drunk and all had to worry about was getting up for sixth form on time. We had only been going out a few months.
This was my 21st birthday party last year. I think he had a better time then me. Anyone would have thought it was his birthday! Its also one of the only photos I have of him not pulling a funny face! He hates having his photo taken whilst sober and when he is drunk he pulls such annoying faces!

Reading 2008, the first festival we went too. Amazing.

This photo cracks me. For the past three years the boys of our group organise a Christmas lag pub crawl. Basically the rules are that everyone has to wear a christmas jumper and hat. Im not usually able to go because the Next Sale is over christmas and I have to work. But last year I had the early shift so was able to make it. This is us in our christmas attire. We look so silly haha!

So there you have it a few of my favourite photots, I could have posted a lot more but I didnt want to bore you. I promise I will get back to proper blogging tomorrow :)

Guess I got too excited when I thought you were around

Tobacco pussy bow dress: Primark
Nude shoes: Primark
Nude tights: Primark
Gold sequin bag: Topshop
Pearl drop earrings: Topshop
Cream hair flower: Primark

I ended up going for the Primark version of this dress, I just cannot afford Topshop at the moment. It is extremely short, im used to wearing midi-length skirts/dresses at the minute so not used to it! Excuse the massive legs I wanted to show you the back of my tights. They were only a pound but my boyfriend says it looks like I have had a skin graft!

I decided to go for a bun, thought as the pussy bow is a statement it deserved to be shown off! I used a doughnut and just pinned my hair around it. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. Now my hair is getting longer, i'm finding I can do more things with it.

Im off to camden tonight and thanks to Robyn and Ellie I have a few ideas of some new places to try out. We tend to still to the same ones out of habit. I'm not going to go too mad as I have work tomorrow but I'm looking forward to having a bit of dance and being with all my favourite boys! Yes I am the only girl going out again haha!

I'm looking forward to blogging again properly next week, I nearly died last week commuting but it was so worth it! I have so much to talk about!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
