Reaching Goals of 2014! ~ Happy New Year


This time last year, I wrote on my phone the three things I wanted out of 2014. I said that if I achieved these goals, I would be happy with the year.


Throughout the year, I ticked off the goals I accomplished. On the 4th of september, I passed my driving test and completed my goals of 2014. These are the three main things that I wanted out of 2014, and the most important things that happened in my year. I turned 18 and had an amazing 18th Birthday with my family and friends around to celebrate with me. I got into university, got my A-level results and met some amazing people at university. Moving to university was a big deal for me, I have moved 3 hours away from my family and had to deal with living away from them. I moved into student accommodation, with 13 other girls (now 11), which was a big deal for me. I passed my driving test with only one minor.  I passed and then a week later, I went to university and after been at university without driving for so long, I get really nervous when I come home and have to drive. I'm glad that I got my licence though cause I know that if I went to university without my driving licence then I would never have started again and it would be a big regret of mine.


2014 has been a great year for me, obviously there has been some hard times, but overall I think I've had a pretty great year. I hope 2015 brings the same success as 2014. I haven't thought of what I want out of 2015 that much, I really just want to complete my first year at university and continue been happy with my life. Everyone has bad days, but we just have to realise there is always tomorrow and tomorrow could be the best day of your life.


Good luck for 2015 and Happy New Year

Boxing Day Sales: George at Asda Haul

On Boxing Day, I went with my mum and my sister to Asda to have a look at there sales. Asda is only 2 minutes away from us, so I decided to have a quick look. I say quick look, we were there ages and by bank balance suffered from it. This is what I bough for myself, my sister also bought herself some things and my mum bought my brother quite a few bits, but I didn't really want to show you them, so this is just what I got. I have provided the few links i could find on the website, I found these in my local Asda, so couldn't find many links.

This is a Burgundy Coat that was reduced from £20 to £10. I thought this coat was amazing, i love the coat, the style is exactly what i wanted, and it was only £10. I couldn't believe it. It feels lovely when worn, its so soft and cozy. The only thing I'm not very happy with is the "buttons" as the ends come of if you close them a bit too aggressive. Other than that everything is great, and I feel like I will truly enjoy this coat.  


My mam didn't like this jacket when i picked it up, but when i tried it on she started to like it more. I really like the peplum effect the jacket has. I think ill probably wear this with a nice shirt underneath and have the collar showing. This jacket was £8 reduced from £18, such a bargain.
                          
                        
        
My cousin has the frozen cd in her car and while I was home I have pinched it and put it in my car, as she will want it back soon, I bought it for myself. It is currently £5.

This is called the 'Winter Scene T-Shirt' I saw this on the website and wanted it straight away, so I was so glad when they had it in my local Asda. This was reduced from £8 to £4. The only thing i don't like about this is that its quite short and i like my tops to be a bit longer than this is.
I bought three pairs of jeans.

The first pair were reduced from £10 to £6. They are a really dark denim blue. They are really comfy and soft. These are in short length and I'm 5'4 so perfect length for me.

The next pair are described on the website as 'Acid Wash Skinny Jeans' these were reduced from £16 to £10. These are a greyish colour and are really comfy.

The final pair have a acid wash effect also but are blue. These were also reduced from £16 to £10.
I bought a few pairs of jeans as i have recently gone down a size so needed new jeans that didn't require a belt to keep them up. these were great as they are cheap but stylish, great buy.

My Christmas 2014

Every year on Christmas Eve, for as long as i can remember, I have put reindeer dust out for Rudolph and the other reindeers. As I have a little brother, my house still does this every year.               

                                  
                                   
This is my house on Christmas morning. I'm glad that I've got a little brother on christmas morning, as I feel that if it was just my sister and I, it would be quite boring.

             

Here is some pictures of my little brother opening his Christmas presents.




                            

Our dog Annabelle enjoyed her presents aswell.

Having Fun!

Amy refused to smile for the camera, so Hayden attacked her till she would.

                                   

Annabelle looking insanely cute in her dress!

                       

Christmas Dinner! 

                       

Every year my auntie and cousins come for dinner, along with my mum's friends Jenny and Richard.

                       

There isn't enough seats at the table so Auntie Sam, Hayden and Dad had to sit in the living room.

                       

                       

After dinner, we chill out and Hayden plays with his toys, well with Dad's help.

                       

                       
Merry Christmas!

Collective Haul: Primark, New Look, Superdrug, Wilkinsons, and Poundland

When I went home from uni for a week, I went shopping with my family and this is what I bought!

The first stop was primark, I actually also bought a top for my little brother but tht is back home so I couldn't take a picture of it. 

                              
I bought three bras which were all £2 each, actually the grey one was supposed to be £2.50 but was on sale for £2. These colours I think are so pretty and remind me of christmas and winter time. I love wearing red in winter, it makes me feel so festive.
     
Also from primark I bought a new pair of black plimsoles, for only £3 I love these, they don't last that long but they are so comfy and they are the cheapest black plimsoles I have found. The only problem is you have to wear those tiny socks that only go on your toes with them. I also bought a pug mug for £1.50 and a pug tea towel for £1. I am obsessed with pugs and for such a cheap price I had to have them. My mam also bought the pug mug and tea towel as she is just as obsessed as I am. 

     

The next shop I bought something from was new look. I absolutely love new look for clothes, shoes, bags, everything. I think the quality is great and they are always having sales on. Everything I bought was in the sale. I bought a black pencil dress for £3, two dungaree dresses one was £3 and one was £7. I bought both of them as one was more floaty and soft and the other was more structured.  I also bought a crop for £1. £1! I could not fall of for that. 
                   
I also bought these shoes for £7, I wanted these shoes for ages but everytime I went in they didn't have my size, luckily, this time the one pair they had was my size! 

       


Next we went to superdrug, I bought some VO5 dry shampoo was £1.78 aand 2 superdrug body sprays which were 50p each. I didn't even know VO5 had a dry shampoo, I always used the batise one, but this was on offer so I bought this one. 


                           


We went into wilkinsons, where I bought from the fruits range, shampoo and conditioner in strawberry and pomegranate at £1.50 each. These were 3 for 2, I also bought my brother a bath bomb, as my cousin and sister bought bath bombs from lush, so he wanted one so I bought him one from here. I also got the clean and clear, deep action cream wash for £3. I was running out of this, so I picked up a new bottle. 

               


From poundland I bought a room diffuser in apple and cinnamon, I love the smell of apple and cinnamon it reminds me so much of christmas I love it. I also got a pack of 3 razors, I already used one and they are so good, such a close shave, amazing for £1. 

               

I also got a pug money bank, he's so cute I couldn't resist. 
      
Just look, how cute is he!
