My 'before holiday' Haul!

Hi there everyone! I know it's been a while, and I forgot to tell you guys why there hasn't been a blog post! So I did a little haul before I went on holiday to Bournemouth for a week, and have spent the rest of the time celebrating summer break with my friends. Now I'm spending some time with you guys!..

So the first items I got are some tops, which were all on sale cheaply at primark ranging from £3-£6, these will be worn even after my holiday, (there are also 2 vest tops which I forgot to include in the picture oops) The blue short sleeved t-shirt has in big letters SMILE with a girl holding a camera; which I thought would bright up anyone's day. (Also the superheroes t-shirt is one of my secret obsessions!) I did take more clothes, but these are the recent things that I brought.
The next things that I got were my absolute necessary products for summer, these included the Vo5 Heat protectant spray, The simple refreshing face wash, which is so gentle! The sure bright deodorant and some more St Ives scrub which I'd ran out of! The scrub was £2.86, The deodorant was 3 for £5 because my mom bought in bulk, The vo5 heat protectant was £3.69 and the Simple face wash was £3.25. So overall it came to around £12, which was an OK price for my favourite products of the month.
The next thing I got was out of Asda's 'George' they are some gorgeous sandals; and they are a pretty neutral colour with 3 bows and a strap that goes behind the back of your foot. These were £10 and I used them a lot on holiday almost everywhere.
Okay so the last thing I treated myself to were some face masks from Montagne Jeunesse I have tried some of these before, and decided to try them again for £0.99p each. I thought it was pretty handy to take sachets of things instead of big bulky tubes like I have at home. (Now I've used them, I'm glad I took a picture of the packaging before I went, because they were amazing!) Who doesn't love peeling off a face mask?!
So hopefully guys now I'm back off holiday the posts will be up and running again without any problems/delays. 
Have a good Sunday everybody! x

Blogging Tips& Advice!

Why hello there!
If your reading this, your either a loyal reader (which I thank you greatly for) or you just simply want to start a blog and need some tips, in which case I am going to help you out! (FYI: I know my blog isn't exactly the most popular, but some people might find this post helpful and in which case it's all worth it for me.

Tip 1: The most important tip is to be unique this will attract more viewers to your blog if you aren't posting the same as everybody else, and have different opinions and tastes. Remember, being original is boring!! :)

Tip 2: Decide what your basing your blog on, reviews, a journal? Anything you like... just make sure that it's something you love otherwise you will get tired of it really quick.

Tip 3: Pick a website your going to use, this can be (if you have the money) buying your own url, or just choosing a free and easy to use site like blogspot (blogger) or wordpress! Either are easy to use when you get used to using them.

Tip 4: Struggling on what to call your blog? Try to think of a short or catchy name, that's special to you, and hasn't been used before. That way, people will remember your blog easier and it won't be a mouthful!

Tip 5: Write what you want to write about. Don't write about a certain makeup brand just because someone else does, it will get boring. Do what you want to do :)

Tip 6: Have a simple layout for your blog. This means from the tabs to the font, people need to be able to get around your blog easily, and especially read your posts with ease and not struggle to read your swirly font; so don't go overboard with the simple things.

So that's it for todays post guys, check back soon for more! 
Stay Classy x
