Catching Up.

Well, its been a few days since I blogged. To be honest, I’ve had little time to do anything what with the run up to my 21st party on Saturday, sorting out the last minute arrangements, and also with work.

First off, I promised Mairead of http://www.maireadclabbyfashion.com/ that I would post up a picture of the Me and Zena charm bracelet and charm that I bought off http://www.spoiledbrat.co.uk/ with the £25 voucher I won on her very first giveaway.

Here is a picture from the site of the charm bracelet and charm itself:


 

Now, I’m not normally a gold person, I much prefer silver jewellery. However, there was something about this in gold that drew me to it! I’ve always wanted a charm bracelet, and my Dad promised me one a couple of years ago, which I am still to receive! 😀



Me and Zena TV charm £9.99 (its so adorable, I love it!)
and Me and Zena starter charm bracelet £10.00



Anyway, I was going to buy something to wear for my 21st birthday party with my voucher, but as soon as I saw this, I fell in love with it – I had to have it.

Now, for a £25 voucher, spending £10 didn’t seem a lot, so I set about finding something for another £10 so that once I had considered postage and packaging, I had used my voucher.

I umm-ed and aah-ed whilst browsing the online store, but finally found just the thing I was looking for.

I had found myself once again drawn to the Me and Zena range, and decided upon a cute little charm for my bracelet, which can be seen above!
Since receiving my bracelet, I have had many compliments on it, with plenty of people asking where I purchased it from. Here are a few pictures of me with the bracelet on: (apologies for the not so great photographs)

As before, I am sorry for the quality of the photos, I have taken them on my extremely rubbish digital camera. I only wish the pictures were better.
Here is a picture of me wearing it (excuse the work uniform!!!):

Again, the quality of the picture is abysmal, but you kind of get a sense of how it looks on 🙂

In other news, I have got no further in searching for a house with my boyfriend, focussing wholeheartedly on my party at the end of the week.

I have not found an outfit for it yet as I just cannot seem to choose! But when I do, I shall update the blog with pictures – this will probably be the day after my party, so you can see the outfit in all its glory!

Finally, I would like to share a link to a blog that I personally adore, by a girl who I think is absolutely brilliant! She is Charlotte!

The New Year.

So this year, I didn’t really make a resolution. Of course, I want to do the usual, such as keep fit, save money, cut down on my drinking etcetera, but I know this will never happen!

This year though, I am focussed specifically on my work, and finding  a house for me and my boyfriend. Hence why my blog is titled Futures. The url is based on a song I love by Jimmy Eat World, called Futures.
The lyrics just seem to bode well with what I’m trying to achieve.

Also, I have started entering competitions religiously since the beginning of 2011. I have been entering competitions now, on and off, for over six years since my nan and dad both got me into them. My nan even bought be a book called ‘How to enter and win competitions’ – bless her!- but I rarely entered, thus the rewards were minimal.

However, I have recently become well and truly obsessed with ‘comping’ again, and am a member or subscriber to every website/newletter there is going 🙂 I even follow the amazing Di on SuperLucky!
If you are interested in comping, she is extremely on the ball, and her luck is astounding!

I haven’t won that much since I started comping again, but I have managed to win three prizes now from the Malibu UK facebook page, and a signed Eliza Doolittle album.

By far my best win so far though, was a £25 voucher for Spoiled Brat in association with Mairead Clabby!

I was originally going to choose a dress to wear for my 21st but I instead chose a Me and Zena charm bracelet and a charm to go with it (pictures will be posted in the next blog). It has been a nightmare trying to find anything to wear for my 21st, so now I am searching on payday until I find something and I will post a few things up on here too 🙂
I haven’t got that much to say today really, but hope everyone has a good day and I hope to see some follows soon 🙂
