Brilliant Barbecue



To meet up with everyone during the summer my family and I had a little BBQ for our friends from football as we all get on so well and known each other for years. My mum and I prepped all the food after that it got cooked on the barbecue by my dad, everyone loved the food. We made a salad containing a wide variety of a healthy goodness which was important to intemperate in the summer because that's when I get unhealthy because I'm out of routine plus general barbecue meats.

As barbecues are traditionally in the garden we took this as a great opportunity to make our garden look nicer by repainting all the fences with two coat of water proof paint which we got from B&Q. We hung some bunting around the tables on the patio area to add a splash of colour I mad this from scrap material a few years ago when I first got my sewing machine. As this barbecue so in the evening people actually need to be able to see their food so we hung pretty little fairy lights along the fence and near the tables where we are sitting these look so pretty at night and were very inexpensive from B&Q sadly I didn't get a picture (sorry bad blogger). We were so lucky for weather as it rained for days before and rained days after but luckily it was super sunny for the barbecue.


For this evening I wore a white vest top from Primark, Blue denim shorts again from Primark. Over that so make the outfit more dressy I added a beautiful kimono which I got in the sale at Asda. Then on my feet I wore my white low heel sandals which I got from New Look, I absolutely love them! For this evening look I did very minimal skin make up as in summer I much prefer to keep it light and natural. On my eyes I did a very nude look with bold eyeliner no flick and lastly on lips I used my red lip crayon which I am so obsessed with right now.

Big City Adventure!

Throwing it all the way back to boxing day but rather then spending the week after christmas at home doing nothing, this year myself and my family decided to fly out to Chicago and stay in a hotel for a few days and be proper tourists around the big city. I stayed at the Sheraton Grand hotel which is quite central in the city your not in manic rush of the magnificent mile which is just a mile long road of shops which is spent probably too much money in but you have everything around you like restaurants slightly less busy shops, Starbucks (on every street corner).
I was my first time in Chicago and it did not disappoint. We were only there for seven days so we packed everyday full of fun and sight seeing including Ice skating, John Green aquarium and we went up the 360 Chicago building which is the second highest building in Chicago ad myself and my Dad did the tilt. The tilt for those who don't know, is where you stand up against a panel of glass facing out of the building and t…

November Favorites

This is my November favourites its actually quite a short one this month but I guess I have been using my normal products and stuff but these thing I have been loving on another level!!!

Avon Nail varnish So it's almost Christmas and I think this nail varnish is very festive and sparkly without being too much considering it's not even December yet. It's from Avon and I bought this nail varnish roughly this time last year but I feel like I have rediscovered this product and I am constantly wearing it right now. It is made up of lots of glitter in silver, gold and black, together they make such a nice shimmery colour. They do still sell this at Avon for £3.00 however they changed the names and shades slightly but I love all of them and I think I might have to purchase some more.


T Mug This past month I have been loving this mug, it has a T on it for my name and I've been enjoying tea and hot chocolate out of it. I'm not sure where it came from as it was a present from…

Christmas Throwback

So I have gone through Facebook and all the laptops in the house to look for all our old christmas December photos with a Christmas theme so here are the findings. Looking at these pictures have really made me smile, we did have some more but I just can't find them.

This is super bad quality but I think was two years ago at Broadditch farm when we went to buy a tree, we had a look round the shop and myself and my mum decided that we wanted to take a selfie in these super cool glasses.


This is 2012 when we decorated the living room and bought new decorations, I love this picture it makes me feel so cosy.
I love this collage I made two years ago I think and Cooper my dog was being super cute and he got lots of presents on Christmas day.
This is in 2011 and we had snow in December but not christmas day. This was like the beginning of December and we went to a winter wonderland somewhere and they had like a little zoo bit then we went and bought ice cream. Also I am now realizing how…
