My Temporary:Secretary haul.

Well, as some of you who follow me on Twitter may know, the other day I tweeted about some jewellery that I had seen that I had fallen in love with. I received a tweet back from someone (forgive me please, because I cannot think for the life of me who it was!) asking me if I’d ever checked out Temporary:Secretary.
Tbh, although I had heard the name around both the blogging community & Twitter, I hadn’t actually been to check out the website. I also started communicating with Sarah, the owner of Temporary:Secretary on her Twitter account (@TempSec) and so I thought I should take a look at the website & gather some impressions.
Now, as you know, money is extremely tight at the moment, what with being 6 months pregnant and all, however I was instantly drawn to nearly all of the jewellery on offer. I jokingly tweeted Sarah saying I was going to see if I could get my boyfriend to treat me to some, and would you know it, he actually said yes!
I thought that the best idea was to go for the £10 lucky dip bag as I would get five pieces of jewellery & it would save me having to sit there and deliberate for hours over which pieces to choose, as Sarah would choose for me.
Heres what I received:

Apple ring. I fell in love with this IMMEDIATELY. Loads of people have asked me where I got it from 🙂  

Ice Lolly necklace

Gorgeous little charm bracelet

Octopus necklace

Pince-nez glasses necklace

I haven’t got round to wearing all my jewellery just yet…I’ve had my apple ring on constantly though, and I wore the pince-nez glasses necklace to my great-uncles funeral today. I had plenty of lovely comments on the necklace & my Nan told me she loved it (she also told me she’s going to be sorting out a lot of her jewellery for me…I’m so excited to see what she gives me, she’s a seriously glam nan!)
However, I’m more than happy with what I received in my £10 Lucky Dip bag…everything is just so me  & I’m glad I left it to Sarah, rather than myself to choose some items!

A lovely handwritten Thank You note from Sarah

I am also more than impressed with the high customer service Sarah delivers. Receiving the personalised Thank You note with my parcel made my day & showed me people do still have manners nowadays (I may have been starting to give up on society, tbh!) I really do love my new jewellery & I will be sure to make another purchase soon when money’s a bit easier 🙂
Beautiful Temporary:Secretary business card & thank you note; Hero & Cape business card, also included in the parcel.
Have you ever ordered from Temporary:Secretary? I’d love to see what you’ve bought yourself! (leave links in a comment below the post)
Haven’t ordered yet? Check out their wonderful website here – you may find that changes very quickly!
       Have a great evening.

Riots.

I know, I know.
Everyone is going to be writing these posts but all I can say is that I am disgusted by the ‘youth of today’.
I am 21 & still considered a ‘youth’ in the eyes of society, but do you see me setting things on fire, breaking windows, looting and generally harming people and their property?
No, you don’t. Because I, like most sane young people, am trying to make something of myself & don’t get involved in stupid situations such as this. I know that all of you are just the same, & are appalled by these pieces of scum.. I’m sickened and disgusted by what they’re doing to our country.
However, although I am following what happens in the riots, I feel that as a country, we cannot let things halt to a standstill. We all need to carry on as normal, even though things around us definitely aren’t.
Keep safe people <3 I can’t really find anymore words to say on the subject, except keep safe.. <3

FOTD.

This is my FOTD, or rather FOTN, from last night.
I had planned to take a picture of my face in all its madeup gloriousness (gloriousness, yeah right…) last night but being the ditz I am, I totally forgot.
So please excuse the fact, I have just cropped my friend out of my picture & used this picture instead:

Eyes: Simple Kind To Eyes Revitalising Roll On (obviously not visible, but wearing it all the same!)
Avon Long Lash mascara
Avon True Colour ‘Emerald’ eyeshadow
Face: Rimmel London Stay Matte foundation in ‘100 – Ivory’
Lush Colour Supplement ‘Light Yellow Multi Purpose Base Colour’  (free from More! magazine a while back)
Lips: Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick SPF 15 (as always)
Collection 2000 lipstick in ‘True Moisture’ creme
Have you done a FOTD today? I would love to see it!

Sunday Snapshots.

Here’s just a few pictures of my Saturday night.
My friend was hosting a charity night for Keech Cottage, a local charity which has a very special meaning to her. I’m not entirely sure how much money was raised, but a great night was had by all!



Me and my Chellebelle, 21 years of friendship and going strong 🙂





Me & my work girls.



Me & Laura, aka @Ackles_Addict on Twitter <3

Me & my Embem



Me and Sophie



The landlord getting his chest waxed for charity, this alone raised over £150!!

As you can see, I didn’t take many pictures, mainly because being pregnant, I was sober & everyone else was pretty drunk!
What did you do for your Saturday night?
