Trip to Nottingham
 
 
Hello my beauties! Hope your all doing well on this cold windy day. On Saturday I went to Nottingham with my sister Emma and her partner Scott. So I had to wake up early on my weekend off work not that I'm complaining about it, well maybe a little! Traveling to Nottingham we went to - Loughborough Train Station - because it would be easy and faster to get there as - Nottingham Forest - were playing which by the way won 3-1 but moving on.
 I cant remember the last time I went to Nottingham town centre must of been over 4 years ago maybe more. I knew one shop I had to go into was of course - Lush -
 
 
I didn't think It would be so busy but I was wrong! It was packed with people getting Christmas gifts which I think would be the perfect gift for anyone who is addicted to - Lush - this is the first time I went to this shop and it much bigger then my local one and there is so much more choice I didn't know where to start!. I don't know how long I was in here for must of been 30-40 minutes. WOOPS!
 
 
 
 
I had to go to my favourite part of the shop the - Bath Bombs - which I think is there most popular part of there stores its was packed! I was surprised I could even get in to have a look around. The smells were to die for and the layout of the shop looked amazing, the staff members were all so friendly and were there to help you whenever you needed help and also what I think is great about them is they show you demo's of different - Baths Bombs & Bubbles Bars - which is good because there were a couple of new people that never used - Lush - before while I was there. The demos they showed were - Golden Wonder Bath Bomb - and also - Candy Mountain Bubble Bar - I couldn't help but watch the bath bomb do it thing! Even though my sister what standing outside waiting for me but I just couldn't stop watching all the colours and bubbles and even the smells! - Golden Wonder - if definitely one of my best Christmas bath bombs on the seasons they do, I think many of you can agree with me on that one as well.
 
 
I haven't been a fan of - Lush - for long and now every time I see one of there stores I just have to go in and have a look and I ALWAYS come out buying something its just so hard not to!. There are so many different Christmas gift boxes that I never knew they did. I love these because they come already wrap with amazing wrapping paper and cute bows. The different products you get in them as well are brilliant depending on which ones you like of course. I couldn't choose which one I wanted to buy for my friends gifts and I'm still choosing now, If you can give me any ideas then please let me know would love your thoughts on the best gift box to give.
Of course I couldn't come away empty handed there were two - Bath Bombs - I haven't tried yet in the Christmas collection I have a few followers on my Instagram that have used these two and said there just amazing on your skin and look eye popping in your baths as well. So I had to buy - Peeping Santa Bubble Bar - and - Father Christmas - I love the smell of the - Father Christmas - one I'm temped not to use it at all and just have it In my room just to make my room smell like it! I know I'm weird right. Another item I had to buy was the most popular shower gel they have - Snow Fairy Shower Gel - this is to die for I cant believe I never knew about this before now I cant believe the smell so sweet and amazing! I use it every single day and I don't think I would change it for anything else so I think I need to stock up before they go away after Christmas.
 

 
While we was in - Nottingham - we visited another one of my favourite shops - Yankee Candles - I don't know what I do if this shop wasn't here or even if you couldn't buy the candles online or even in different shops. I never knew that had a store anywhere close I thought it was just all online. There store was all done up for Christmas with all there new range of Christmas candles and burners. I've never really been a fan of there Christmas specials they have each year I'm the original kind of girl my best ones I love from them are - Pink Sands, Summer Scoops, Mango Salsa, Baby Powder, Sweet Strawberry, Strawberry Buttercream - There are many more but I would be here for days telling you them all. How they had them all displayed was eye catching it was like a rainbow going from red to blue every colour you can think off. This place was packed out as well so I couldn't get round the whole store to have a good look around, but ill have to pop back to visit when I get the chance and to stock up on more candles when the ones I have are all finished.
 

 
So yeah when it finally time to come home I was to relived my feet were killing me and I was soaked walking back to - Nottingham Train Station - Just felt amazing getting home and getting into my PJS with a cuppa tea.
 
I hope you enjoyed reading this post guys
 
Much Love
 
Amy

Relaxation and a bit of me time
 
Hey my fellow bloggers and followers I'm sorry I haven't really posted as much recently I've been going through a bit of a rough time. Splitting up from my partner and having a few heath problems having break up heath problems and even just bad days can be a rollercoaster at times. Rather then bore you about what's happened I would like to share with you how I got myself back on my feet and a bit of a pick me up.
 
*Love the support of my family and my friends to - This quote means a lot to me*
 
Well I have moved back in with my mum and step dad who have both given me support, strength and love in every way imaginable. Made me realise that family is always there for you even if you have bad times with them as well. With the few things that I have been going through I've been needed a bit of TLC - Lush Bath Bombs - These are always a great uplift for me the smells and the colours that each bath bomb I use relax me in every way, For the first time in a long time I finally switch off and enjoy a good hour soak in the luxury of a Golden Wonder or Let It Go while listening to some calm relaxing music just to completely empty my mind. Once I've finished bath Its amazing then to get straight into my PJ'S and my fluffy thumper dressing gown and then start my facial treatment with my - Elemis Pro - Collagen Cleansing Balm - to help remove all my make-up I wore throughout the day and get rid of all the dead skin cells, Then follow with - Soothing Apricot Toner - couple of sprays of this refreshing toner always gives me a pick me up boost, Then followed by the final step the amazing - Pro - Collagen Marine Cream - This cream makes my skin feel so baby soft and always gets rid of my dry skin every time I use it and using it each day I haven't seen any dry skin for while now.
 
 

 
 
Once it comes to bed time I'm always feeling ready for a night sleep and I'm finally getting my sleeping pattern back on track not having to worry about this and that but sometimes still suffer with a panic attack every now and again before going to sleep but always get through them with the routine I've been given by the doctor works every time. I'm sure many people out there suffer from panic attacks and anxiety attacks and they are horrible problems to have you never know when you can get them they can start from something so tiny up to something huge. But with the right treatment and routine everyone can get through them just like me but not to bore you with that. Once I've had a cup of tea or a - Options Mint Hot chocolate - Its finally time to snuggle up in my warm soft bed that's my chance to have a read of my book that I'm currently reading at the moment - Becoming Beyoncé The Untold Story - She is one of my favourite singers and I love reading autobiographies of stars and even people that have passed. I find it so fascinating how they became who they are today. Being able just to relax reading my book or even watching - Once Upon A Time - just feels amazing being able to do things I want to do to help me sleep and even things that I enjoy doing before getting a good nights sleep.
 
 
Obviously I had time and sometimes still do have, periods where I still feel down and upset of my past relationship after everything we had together and the home we got and made how we want. Rather then wallow in the past its time to focus on the future that chapter has now ended and its time to start a new one. I've been dreaming about all the different things I want to start doing now that I've been wanting to do for awhile now. Start my driving lessons is a main one now being able to afford my lessons has taken a huge weight of my shoulders and I'm looking forward to having my own freedom and being able to go where I want when I want and not rely on buses or even bothering family members for lifts. Another few things I want to do and I'm determined to do them all which include - Horse riding Meadow School Of Riding - I've had my first lessons which was my test exam which is basically showing them what I can do out of all the years I have been horse riding, Also I have requested to help volunteer on weekends and sometimes in the week when they need me to get me out the house and also get to spend time with the animals I enjoy looking after and learning about. I'm also wanting to start a college course - Animal Care - I'm dream job is to work at - Dogs Trust - or even  - RSPCA - Just being able to help animals find new homes would just feel amazing to me and see them finally be happy instead of being behind bars. Another thing I've also been doing ever since I've moved back home I've completely redecorated my bedroom I still have a few things to finish off but I've been picture how I've wanted this room for a while now and finally seeing it com to life now its just great, I've wanted a Paris theme room for so many months now and now I finally have it. So that's one thing checked off my list. Being back at home I've been able to treat myself to some new make-up that I've been needing for awhile now and I've recently brought - Laura Geller Roman Holiday - This collection is just amazing this collection includes - Baked Balance-N-Glow Illuminating Foundation - This powered base foundation feels amazing on the skin and gives a amazing glow on my skin. - Baked Romanesque Eyeshadow Palette -  These creamy eye shadows just guild on like butter and last the whole day with the three colour you get in this kit you can achieve amazing Smokey cat eye look. -  Style LASH Intense Lengthening Mascara - and - I-Care Waterproof Eyeliner - The mascara makes my lash look so much more longer then they originally are, As for the eyeliner this is the best eyeliner I've used by far it goes on to well and once its on its not coming off until I take it off. - Colour Enriched Lipstick - and - Colour Drenched Lip Gloss - These to colours are stunning I'm not normal dark lip person but using this two are to die for you can use them together or on there own there the perfect match. I'm so glad I've treated myself to this kit I think it great that I'm starting to put myself first cause I'm kind of person to keep other people happy rather then myself and now after buying this kit and applying it each day actually make me feel beautiful inside and out and I'm looking forward to the day when someone sees the same in me, I always fee happy when I have this make-up on and knowing I have the perfect cover up as well.
 
 
 
And then there is my amazing family just looking at am all and just seeing that there always there for me always gives me strength even when I'm feeling at my lowest. I will do anything to make them all happy and proud of me and also to give them what they want for birthday and Christmas they are all my rock even if my world came crashing down at me they have all been there through think and thin times and I'm so thankful to have them all in my life there main reason why I'm still here I couldn't be with out them at all. Also there is my amazing friends as well who have been there for me through all of these with support and putting a smile on my face and also just having a good catch up with them as well. So thank you all so much.
 
 
(* I apologise for quality of these photos these are quite told ones I only have at the moment*)
 
So here to the new and hopefully positive chapter of my life, Hope filled with Love, Laughs and Happiness
 
Much Love

1. Laura Geller - Roman Holiday Collection
 
I'm a big make-up fan at the moment and I want to thank my sister for that! She was the one that got me into all of these different brands that I've never heard of before and now Laura Geller is one of my top 5 and I just love to have this set as it got everything I use and the colours I adore!.
 
2. Lush - Hello Gorgeous Gift Set
 
I've become a fan of lush this year and now I'm addicted to all there products I've not had one there gift set yet and I just had to ask for this one this year to try out.
 
3. Elemis 6 Piece Sensational Skin Collection
 
I've been using Elemis products for the past 5 years now maybe more and this is the best skin care I've ever used and the smell is to die for! There new product is this 6 Piece in the smell of orchids now I've not tried this or smell this new one yet but anything they bring out will be amazing so I know I wont be disappointed.
 
4. Laura Geller - 31 eye shadow's
 
Another product from Laura Geller her eye shadows are just amazing you can use them even with water to get a amazing effect on your eye's the range of colours she has in this kit are for any time of the year and any occasion. If you are a fan of eye shadows and are daring with colours then you should ask for this kit for Christmas to.

Loughborough Fair - 17th November 2015

Loughborough Fair - 17th November 2015

*All photos are taken by me please don't steal
 
Hey guy's hope your all doing well, So recently I went to my local town fair in Loughborough and I want to tell you about it and what I also thought about the fair
 
so I hope you enjoy reading.
 
*All photos are taken by me please don't steal
 
Loughborough fair comes ever year in November for a week and then moves on to its next town. The first night I went was with one of my closes friends Emmie (Btw check out her blog by clicking her name) and her partner Jordan. It was great to have a catch up with her and just spending some time together talking about what we have been up to and about ours blogs and different events that are coming up. As we walked around the fair we went on a few rides that were there all three of us went of twister I felt so sorry for Jordan as he was being crushed while we going round, as we carried on walking round I saw a ride that I've never seen before called Bull riding (or something like that!) Emmie and Jordan both went on that together just watching them both having a laugh was great and also funny as well because Emmie didn't fall off once as Jordan did a few times one moment you see him then next you don't. As we carried on walking round Jordan wanted to win Emmie a teddy bear and tried he's best on basket ball and the ball bucket challenge (cant remember the actual name of it) he was determined to win her a teddy bear and he did in the end. It was a brilliant night spending time with both of them and just have a laugh I couldn't think of a better way of spending a night out in the fair.
 
*All photos are taken by me please don't steal
The second time I went was with one of my old friends called Ricky who I have known since I was like 4 years old! The last time I saw him was about 8 years ago so we had so much to catch up on. It felt amazing seeing him again because of how long it has been we had a amazing catch up on what we have been up to recently and where were working and everything now and how each other family's are doing as well. Once we got to the fair we had a good walk round before going on anything but once we had our walk round we both needed something to eat so we both went to get a burger and some sweet (we both have a sweet tooth). But the amount we was eating we felt so fat afterwards!. We went on king frog and then Miami wave and that was the one that made us feel so sick afterwards and it seem to go on for ages as well but we had a great laugh while we was on it. Once we finished on the rides we were both feeling to sick to go on anything else so we both decided to go home. But was arrange to meet up again afterwards and we have been in contacted ever since that night.

What I thought about the fair this year
 
I wasn't very happy with the fair this year as it wasn't a big as it used to be and there wasn't many rides either it was mostly food stand which was good because everyone gets there dinner while there out walking around. But I was disappointed that some of the most popular rides weren't there this year but I thought it might be because I used to love it more when I was younger just being the age I am now it just not the same anymore but it a great night out if you just fancy being out of the house for a few hours or even to meet up with a couple of friends or even family. If you have never been to Loughborough fair before I would see it next year when it come again if you enjoy these kind of things but I'm hoping next year it will be a lot bigger. Loughborough fair you are great but you wasn't so great this year I'm sorry I had to say that.
 
If any of you local and visited this fair this year let me know your thought of I comment below.
 
Much Love

Lifestyle - Lincoln Christmas Market Blogger Meet

Lifestyle - Lincoln Christmas Market Blogger Meet

*All photos are taken and edited by me (expect this one.)*

Hey guy’s so I wanted to share with you my very first bloggers event I’ve been to this year since I started my blog back in August. When I was invited to Lincoln Christmas Marker I knew I had to go and see the festive market myself and meet the local blogger girls from East Midland Bloggers. This group is run by Emmie and Hannah if you’re in the local Midlands area then check out there Facebook page here.

So when it came to the day of meeting the girls and traveling to Lincoln I won’t lie I was a bit nervous at first because this was the first time I would ever meet the Midlands bloggers girls and it was also the first time I ever went to Lincoln as well. I went on my local train with Emmie to Lincoln and throughout our travel we meet Sherry on the same train, which was lovely because I had heard so much about her before we left and I was looking forward to getting to Sherry myself.

Lincoln Christmas market was so festive I’m glad I went to this event I wanted to go Lincoln for a go few years because I heard so much about how beautiful the place was and they were all right it is amazing!. Lincoln Cathedral area came alive and Christmas this December. With all the different stalls and entertainment they had to offer there must have been over 300 stalls from just walking around.  The market was on for four days which to me was plenty of time to have a great day out even if it visiting on the busiest day like we did. When I saw Lincoln Cathedral I was so shocked on how beautiful it was and I just wanted to have a walk around inside but I knew it was best to look around the market first.

*All photos are taken and edited by me*

When arriving in Lincoln the first stop was the meet the other blogger girls at a small café called Stokes at the Collection Museum, When I walked in it looked amazing all decorated with a perfect tree, All the of members of staffed were also dressed up for the festive season as well and of course they had Santa there! So I and some of girl had to have our photo taken (come on who doesn’t want their photo with Santa?). We had or out little table where we all got to know each other a lot better once everyone arrived .
*All photos are taken and edited by me*
Once we spent some time looking and choosing what we all wanted to eat and drink before heading up the HUGE hill I’ve been told about. I thought I would just go simple and have a classic hot chocolate and some toast (I know boring!) When my hot chocolate arrived it looked amazing topped with fresh cream, marshmallows and sprinkled with chocolate powder I didn’t want to ruin it by drinking it but I had to see if tasted amazing at it looked. The toast was amazing also with a mini bowl of fresh butter and the toast was golden brown it was the best I’ve heard by far!
After an hour or two when everyone finished their food and drinks we was given a little surprise from Hannah and Emmie we was all given a goodie bag! With a Christmas cracker and card inside as well the products we got in are goodie bags were from - Coppafeel! Type the Hype , Nadia MinkoffElegant Touch UK , Witch Skincare and Nakd Wholefood which I would like to say a huge thank you to for providing us with these amazing treats. After spending some time getting to know all the of girls it was time to head to market so we all got out walking shoes on and prepared for the hill!.

When we started walking to market it was packed even just walking to it! But the atmosphere was amazing felt so festive! With all the Christmas music playing it was hard not to sing along but I was singing along in head but Emmie and Sherry wasn’t scared of singing out loud. The first thing everyone saw was the Lincoln Cathedral which perfect! Because I never visited Lincoln before I’m glad I came and saw it all with my own eyes.
When we arrived at the market I was enjoying looking at some of stalls and what they had to offer there was so many different types from home craft, food and drink, cakes, soups and even different wines as well. While we was walking around we came across a ‘Mulled Wine and Mice Pie’ stall which Emmie and Sherry have been looking for because they were both after they warm mulled wine. This stand was looked after the ‘Merry Monks of Lincoln Minister’. I never tried mulled wine before and Emmie offered her to me for me to try and I was surprised out nice it actually was! I think all be having one on Christmas morning.

As we continued walking the stalls I was told about from Hannah one stall that had these amazing HUGE delicious treats, and she was right! They look mouth-watering as I looked around at all the different treats it was so hard to pick what I wanted but I want with my classic that I loved ever since I was little the classic sprinkled ring doughnuts. They were to die for and they were double the size of a stand doughnut you see. I was so temped to eat them while walking round but I wanted to save them for the train ride home.
I was surprised out big the market actually was I’d never seen one this big before there was so much to see and take in! How much Lincoln had to offer was overwhelming. While we was in Lincoln it wouldn’t of not been right to visit the Lincoln Cathedral it was stunning inside I never seen inside a Cathedral in my whole life and I’m so glad this was the first one I saw. Even thought it was full of people so we could have a full look around it all from what I saw it was beautiful. There was so many different bands playing around the market and they all sound amazing at one point we all started singing alone to one of the bands which made us all feel super festive.

Overall I thought Lincoln was amazing I was so happy that I went because I meet some amazing people and had a fantastic time as well, I would recommend for anybody to head down there next time it comes to take a visit. I’m sure you can ask any of the blogger girls what they thought and they will tell you the same thing. After showing my family some of the photos I took when I got home they all wanted to go and visit next year when it come back. If you have a to do list next year on places to visit them I would recommend you add Lincoln Christmas Market to you list of things to do trust me you won’t regret it!
It lovely getting together with all the East Midlands Blogger’s and getting to know them all I have made some amazing friends from this event and I’m looking forward to seeing them all again on our next outing, You can check out there blog below and read there post about Lincoln Christmas Market as well.
I would like to again thank Emmie and Hannah or organizing this event and also the brands that provided us with our amazing goodies as well.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post guys and don’t forget to comment below and what you thought about it. Also check out the girls below.
Much Love

 


Quorn Railway Station Bonfire Show - 7th November 2015

Quorn Railway Station Bonfire Show - 7th November 2015

Read post
*All photos are taken by me please don't steal
 
Hey guy's so its that time of year where the fireworks are going off and people are snuggling around fires drinking hot chocolate or even a pint or two.
 
I wanted to share with you the local bonfire show I went to for my step dads birthday on bonfire night at Quorn Railway Station I hope you enjoy!
 
 
*All photos are taken by me please don't steal
 
 
So its was my step dads birthday and for a family night out we went to watch the bonfire show at our local railway station I have visited this station many times before as this is where we bring out steam engine to on our local steam rally's. Every year they host their bonfire show and have many different entertainment things to do and see for adults and children of all ages. They have there own little coffee shop which is always busy and full of your old war time items photos and even books which I think is great for the kids to read and even learn about. They have their English teas and coffee's and creams cakes which are to die for, fresh each day and homemade. They also do their popular warm food, English breakfast, soup's, jacket spuds and many other things as well. So if you ever catching a train at this station don't forget to pop in to have a cuppa!.
 
 
*All photos are taken by me please don't steal
 
They also had many different fair rides for children to keep them entertained while waiting for the bonfire to be lit and the firework show to start. The rides where always full and hearing all the children laughing and screaming shows they were having a great time. Any place with fair rides there is always food stands which every one needs to warm them up and of course they did even though they had there café they still also had burger vans and hot chocolate stands and many more. The prices where a bit pricey but they're making money I guess and if people are hungry they will pay the price which I did of course. Also me being a kid I had to get my candyfloss. Cant beat having some candyfloss!
 
*All photos are taken by me please don't steal
 
Once it came closer to the bonfire being lit everyone started to gather round. What I thought was great is they had a professional to light the fire and had local firemen around to watch the fire and to also make sure we were all safe as well. Once the fire was up and going the heat was amazing especially how cold it was that night as well you could have roasted some marshmallows from the heat but I never thought to take any with me. There must of been over 1,000 people around the fire but once the fireworks started the atmosphere was amazing! Everyone who was working on the railway that night were friendly and always there to help you if you needed it and knowing the locals who work on the station is even better.
 
*All photos are taken by me please don't steal
 
The fire work show was amazing just like every year, they never disappointed me so far the show lasted for about 30mins but the time flew by the amount of money they spent for this show would be a lot for the amount of fire works that went off. They had their standard ones, Catherine wheels and for the big finish of course they have the huge ones which everyone loved as all you could hear was "Oooo and Ahhh!" To me it was a perfect way to spend my daddy's birthday as he loves his trains and visiting the station. I love seeing him having a smile on his face and he, like me inside getting all excited over fireworks! we're both still kids at heart. But come on who doesn't love fireworks?
*All videos are taken by me please don't steal
 
So if you didn't get to go this year I would recommend going next year its a brilliant night out even if its with your family or even your friends.
 
Hope you enjoyed reading!
 
Much Love
 
Amy
