Warehouse are doing random acts of kindness throughout the month and choosing a follower on twitter or a fan on Facebook to send a goodie bag. I had complained on Twitter that I was having a bad hair day and on my way to an interview. I then got a tweet telling me that to make sure bad hair days never happen Warehouse were going to send me a goodie bag of hair products by Label M. I gave my address in lightening speed in case they changed their mind and within two days these beauties below were mine. All worth a staggering £105. You could say it was my lucky day!
The goodie bag included four shampoos and conditioners. The orange blossom shampoo smells gorgeous!
A massive tin of hairspray, just as well as mine is running out. I was also gifted some heat protection spray and protein spray (which is not pictured for some reason!)
Mousse and dry shampoo, again products that I was running out of. Does WareStyleTreats have special powers?Thank you so much Warehouse, this has actually made my week!
Have any of you been lucky enough to recieve some WareStyleTreats?

Upper Street

It was my boyfriend's birthday on Friday, he is now the grand old age of 22. Our friends took the day off work/half a day off work to come meet me after work and go out. It was quite a sight having nine boys meet me after work, I looked liked I was being pimped out haha! Luckily one of friends who lives in London met us for a bit so that I could have little girl company. We went on a little bar crawl and ended up at the O2 Academy for a trusty Indie night.

001. Cocktails! They were delish. We went to a bar called Slim Jims as they had happy hour on cocktails. The sign of an amazing bar in my opinion. Highly recommended if you are ever in the area. Not just because they take bras and knickers as payments for a drink....

002. Fancy some pizza? A few of us ended up going out for dinner to line out stomachs. It is not every day that you get a 4ft pizza!

003. Planking. I spent the entire 10 seconds he was balancing on a phone box scared he was going to fall off and break his neck. Luckily we did not have to dash to the nearest hospital. I guess these things happen when boys egg each other on...

004. Me and my lovely friend! We went to Sixth Form together and she ended up moving to London for uni and never came back home. Not that I blame her but I still miss her crazy amounts. It is always so nice when we meet up! I wore this dress.

005. The birthday boy and I. This is the best of a bad bunch! My hair looks a bit frazzled, I blame the fact I had been up since six!

My greedy boyfriend has had a birthday weekend. My mum did him a birthday breakfast for smocked salmon and scrambled eggs on bagels and he went home with armfuls of presents. Tonight we are going out for a birthday meal to our local Mexican with his family. I think it will be a bit of a come down tomorrow when he doesn't get to do anything.


You had my heart inside of your hand

Outfit: Snow leopard print blouse - Primark
Tulle midi black skirt - Next
Round toed black court shoes - Topshop

Finally an outfit that is not entirely Primark. I do have some items in my wardrobe from different shops haha! This skirt is what my boyfriend refers to as the "halloween witch" skirt. Despite that I love, I feel like a fairy in it! I have noticed though it is makes my legs look a little stumpy so perhaps I need to wear higher heels. I found this blouse tucked away in the cupboard so that was a nice little surprise. It’s like having news clothes when you find something after months! I am so pale, I am trying to wean myself off the fake tan. I don't know what’s worst. Ghostly pale or radioactive orange...

I had a very eventful weekend! I travelled up to Milton Keynes to see the Foo Fighters who were amazing, Dave Grohl has such stage presence, they were joined on stage by Alice Cooper. A little surreal to say the least! Biffy were immense, I am desperate to see them again! We ended up leaving a little bit early at 11pm in order to beat the rush. Turned out we didn't really have to bother. It took us two hours to get out of the carpark, whose bright idea was it to have six carparks leading into one road? We then managed to get onto the M1 and we hit a major traffic jam. Decided to take a break from the road at about 4am as my friend fell asleep driving whilst we were in a traffic jam. Not good! It took use 45 mins to get back out onto the motorway. Finally strolled in my house at 7am on Sunday morning, a total of 8 hours after I left Milton Keynes. It should have been an hour and 15 minute journey. I was lucky enough to see sunset and sunrise that day (s). I then had the pleasure of having 1.5 hours of sleep before I had to go to work. Needlessly to say I thought I was dying at work and am still recovering after having nearly 11 hours sleep last night. I am off to bed after this is posted for another early night. Still at least it's a story to tell the grandkids!

I managed to get my hands on the Nails Inc freebies from Fabulous magazine, anyone else get lucky? I love both the colours and am going to give them a whirl over the weekend. I think the pink might just be my favourite.
