May 2018 Favourites

may 2018 favourites

May seems to have flown by and I am so glad because it means less time until I go see Demi Lovato at long last. I am just so glad May had a couple of bank holiday's as it has meant that we have got quite a bit more done in the house. So here are a few of my favourite things from the month of May...

Beauty wise it has been a slow month and I haven't really fallen in love with anything new apart from this Power Legend Intense Eau De Toilette, granted this is for men but it isn't too strong and smells so good. When my auntie bought this for me they told her it was made to smell just like a Tom Ford I aren't sure which one but it just smells so good. I have also been loving my Lynx Unity spray as it is just the perfect scent, not too weak and certainly not too strong. 

I started getting back into the gym in May and wow I may have only lost a little bit of weight but it is slowly going plus clothes are starting to get big on me and others are complimenting me on my weight loss. We finally got around to cutting the grass in all the gardens too so that has meant I have been able to get out and just kick the football around again which I am absolutely loving as I really have missed it. As I said above we have managed to get more done around the house throughout May, we are now at the stage where the bedroom is basically completed and it just feels so cosy, it is great having the house feel more like a home.

Nights have been spent relaxing and watching either a TV series or films. I completed Riverdale at last and seriously when is series 3 coming out because that show is just brilliant, I think I got through series 2 in a week. Since moving in with Liam I have started watching Dragon Ball which is something I wouldn't usually have picked to watch, but having access to all Liam's DVD's I am getting the chance to watch new things, so far it is really good and I can't wait to watch more of it. The big thing for me was The Greatest Showman finally coming out on DVD and I was lucky enough for Liam to pick this up for me, I can't get enough of it, the film is absolutely amazing I need to try get Liam to sit and watch it with me.

Music has been on everyday throughout May, whether it has been whilst walking too and from work or doing jobs around the house. Fifth Harmony unfortunately begun their hiatus in may and I am still quite upset about it, I have lost count of how many videos of their final performance I have watched and how many of their music videos I have been watching. Plus they have just released their farewell video for Don't Say You Love Me, which is brilliant and just happens to be my favourite song. Another strong favourite for the month has been Shawn Mendes, Me and Georgia are going to see him next year and I have just purchased his latest album, In My Blood is a brilliant song but my favourite so far has to be Youth. Finally Camila Cabello dropped her latest song with Pharrell called Sangria Wine and if you have read this blog for a while then you will know I have been waiting for this single for a long time, it is brilliant and I can not get enough of it. Although I really think Liam is sick of hearing me randomly singing it.

What have you been loving this month? 

See you soon,
Lucy. 








Last Week #6


Ah last week, yet another very warm week, Sunday we had a gin festival at my nanna and grandad's house, I have to admit that today I am suffering not from the alcohol but from the sunburn I have suffered it is quite entertaining how just half of me is bright red. 8am until 5pm Monday to Friday was once again spent in work but I have also managed to get a few days working out done whether that has been in the gym or at home, I am feeling so good for it.  Saturday we even managed to get some final glossing in the bedroom done and to get started on the dining room at long last. 
So this is what I got up to last week...

Been Watching: It was both the men's and women's Champions League finals and I managed to watch both, they were both equally good games in their own way. I have also watched a lot of YouTube once again but most of my time this week has been spent on Netflix as I have completed Riverdale now.

Been reading : I have been rubbish wish reading this week, I haven't read at all. This is down to me binge watching Riverdale.

Been listening to : When Netflix hasn't been on it has been Fifth Harmony and Camila Cabello coming through the speakers, with the odd bit of Demi Lovato and Shawn Mendes thrown in.

Bought : This week I have been very good. All that I have bought is the Shawn Mendes album which I have waited so long for. 

Plans for this week : I want to get more of the dining room done and I want to try find some doors for our wardrobe in the bedroom. I also want to get the shelves fitted in the wardrobe. I am hoping to stick to my working out too.

So there you have it that was my week. What have you guys been up to?

Updated Skincare Routine


One perk of moving out is that I have now a lot more space for all my hair and skincare products. I will be doing a post very soon showing you how I store all this but in the mean time here is what I currently use on my face.

First up I use the L'Oreal men expert hydra energetic charcoal face wash. I know it is a mens product but over the years my skin has spent so long in harsher environments I need something a little stronger. This face wash is working worders on my skin and I have noticed a huge difference since using it.

I then add on the No7 pore serum as my pores really needed some work, since using this daily I have noticed my pores are really reducing which is great to see. I then add on a quick spritz of this Lush toner water which although I don't like the smell of it I really like how it leaves my skin. Next up is my Body shop drops of youth items, I seem to have been cursed with the same dark circles under my eyes as my dad so I am doing my best to try reduce these. I then use the concentrate just to get my skin looking healthier. 

The final step on a morning is applying just a little of the No7 day cream to leave my skin nice and moisturised.  On a night I will simply cleanse my skin with my T-Zone charcoal wipes and add a bit of the Witch blemish reducing serum and finish off with the No7 night cream.

Since using this combination of products I have really noticed my skin looking a lot healthier and have also noticed a reduction in spots.

So there you have it that is my updated skincare routine for both day and night. Think of anything I could add? Let me know.

See you soon,
Lucy


My Shoe Collection


I think you could say I am a little bit of a Sneaker Head. Every time I go shopping I will end up in the nearest JD Sports or Footasylum to see if I can get anything new. We currently have a 6 tier shoe rack that I have basically filled and poor Liam barely has any space left for his shoes which to be honest isn't that much of a problem as he doesn't really buy a lot, he has his favourite pairs and that is it.

So here is what I currently have in my collection, but I am hoping to add to this soon.

adidas

I only own 3 pairs of Adidas, this grey pair I have owned for a while now and to be honest they only ever really come out in the warmer weather as they look quite nice with my denim shorts. These Sambas my dad actually gave me because he got totally the wrong size, they have been well loved and to be honest they are close to being thrown out but I can't bring myself to do it as they are such a comfy trainer.

nike training

Next up is my workout shoes. I will only ever wear Nike for the gym and this nearly always stood with my football boots too. I got these yellow Nike ones back when I started collection believe it or not in 2011 and they are still standing, they are perfect for the kickabouts in the garden. These black ones I have had for a while now but they are still so comfortable so I do still wear these. For some reason I like my outfits at least a little colour coordinated whilst I work out. This grey pair I got for Christmas from my Mum and Dad, I have just got back into the gym and these have been absolutely perfect so far. 

nike sneakers

Nike has always been my go to brand, they just have so many great design and they are bringing so many great ones out each year if I could I would spend all my wage on Nike each month. My Air Force 1 hi-tops are my go to pair and honestly they are a little worse for wear. I need to chuck these out and get a new pair. My red blazers were a present for my 17th if I remember correctly, they are in surprisingly good condition so I need to get wearing these a little more. The white air-max, were also a gift from my parents. They got me and Georgia the exact same pair so we have had to careful work not to be wearing matching as obviously being sister we didn't want to be seen in the same thing. This grey and red pair I got just before Christmas and they have become my work shoes, I need something comfy to wear during the day and for my walk too and from work, these tick all the right boxes. The Nike SB's are also from around Christmas time and were a total bargain at the Nike outlet, they are really comfy and go great with my shorts in the warmer weather and also my skinny jeans.


Converse is another brand I seem to wear quite a bit. These multi tone converse hi-tops have been on my shoe rack for ages they are a pair I just can't get rid of as they are so easy to style. The white converse really need to be cleaned but they are brilliant no matter what weather, I think I will be re buying these in the future.  The grey ones were a pair I picked up for a holiday to wear with my shorts on nights out and they didn't let me down they were perfect. The red converse is one that other people in the family really weren't keen on but I got these when I got my Nike Blazers for my birthday. They have been well loved and look a bit of a mess but I think that makes them look a little better. I won't go into my new Miley Cyrus converse as you can read all about them here.


Vans are something I buy the odd pair of but never really get too many of. The black leather ones were a Christmas present and are actually the comfiest pair I own, the other 2 pairs I will wear in the nicer weather but I don't wear them too often. I am a gamer and always will be so when I saw Vans doing their Nintendo collaboration I knew I had to pick up a pair so I got these Princess Peach ones. Liam laughs at the fact I don't wear them and just want to keep them nice and clean, but can you blame me? Look how cute they look.


My Puma Suedes are one of my favourite shoes which you can read about here. But I really do need to start wearing them a lot more as they are currently just sat on the shoe rack.


Moving away from trainers for a bit, this is how little of a choice I have if I am going out and don't want to wear trainers, vans or converse. These Primark version of Ugg boots are super comfy but I really don't get enough wear out of them when I should start to wear them a lot more. These black and white boots were only £3 from H&M and I got these as they are something like Tegan and Sara would have worn in the Love You To Death era. They are actually really comfy and super easy to clean and they are easy just to throw on. The Toms were bought from Costco of all places for a holiday we was going on and I have found them perfect to dress up my shorts a little. Similarly to the Toms my Vans boat shoes were also for a holiday but I have found these work great with my chinos. I wore my last Chelsea Boots to death and I realised I didn't have any smart looking shoes so I ran out and got these from Primark. They were only £8 and honestly you would have thought that they would have cost a lot more with the quality of them.


Finally I have saved the best until last. These white Fila trainers are a recent buy that I am yet to wear but I already can't wait to style them. I wanting a nice white trainer for a while and managed to pick these up pretty cheap from Schuh. I absolutely love Jordan's and really want to buy more but for now I just have this one pair, I was worried they wouldn't suit me but styled with skinny jeans or skinny tracksuit bottoms they actually do look good. Johan Cryuff is an absolute legend in my eyes, I had a Cryuff hoody and had to get the trainers for someone who I looked up to growing up. These have lasted me absolutely ages and still look great. I actually got these to wear for my 21st birthday party and got a lot of compliments about them on the night. Finally are my current favourites, I really don't want to ruin these at £80 they were definitely an investment but I absolutely love these Adidas Derupts, they are so light you forget you are wearing them and the colours are amazing. 

Make sure you have keep checking back on the blog as I will be posting a lot more fashion related posts in the future so some of these shoes will be featured.

See you soon,
Lucy

Quick Haul


When Liam works on a Saturday I usually spend the morning with my mum, which is great as this is our time. So on Saturday we headed into Bradford for a little bit of shopping. I wasn't actually going to buy much seen as I am trying to save a little bit but there was no way I was leaving these bargains behind. 

Our large PoundWorld store has a big section at the back where everything is half price, this is great especially as most items in here are now over £1. I have been on the look out for a yoga mat for a while now and this was marked down to £2.50 which is really cheap compared to what I had been looking at. Similarly this foam roller was also down to £2.50 and should work wonders on my bad leg and ease the tension on it. Resistance bands are also meant to be good at strengthening my leg so I picked up this pack of 3 for just £1 and they come in a nice little carry case. Finally from PoundWorld I picked up this large water bottle as I seem to be drinking a lot more water these days.


Next up was Primark and I really wasn't going to get anything however, if you have read the blog recently you will know I am putting together my perfect wardrobe. With me loosing weight I don't want to spend too much on clothes so I just picked up a few bits. I love just wearing jersey shorts around the house and these were reduced to £4 a pair so I got a couple of pairs of these. I love the maroon colour and the grey is one I always go for.


Now this top is like one I had seen in Footasylum recently but was only £8 in Primark so there was no way I was leaving it behind. It is a bit of a longer top which is what I have been after for a while now and I love the stripes on it. It feels like it is good quality too. 


Finally I got this England top for £9 and I love it. To me it has a look of the 66 shirts which was perfect. Honestly I aren't England's biggest fan, I actually support Portugal and always have done each year I get a shirt. But as I follow England and I have been told I aren't wearing a Portugal shirt every weekend I thought I would pick this up.

I am definitely going to ban myself from buying new clothes until I really need to as who knows how long I will be this size for especially if I carry on as I have been doing.

See you soon,
Lucy

Last Week #5


Last week was another week of jobs around the house all week and things really are starting to come together. I really will be so glad when everything is done. I finally asked Liam if I could have my dressing room and it looks like it is going ahead, excited doesn't even cut it. I spent Saturday morning shopping with my mum and actually had a lovely morning with her. The healthy eating actually went well too with a nice little loss recorded at last. My mum also came to work with a Pandora bag which held 2 bracelets and a charm for me which I really wasn't expecting. Me and Georgia also managed to get hold of some Shawn Mendes tickets for next year, these were a lot more than we expected but we are now having them as Christmas presents thanks to our mum and dad. So is what I had been up to last week...

Been Watching: Living with Liam is amazing as I now have access to his Dragonball DVD's so I made a start on those. He even treated me to the Greatest Showman so that was watched straight away too. I have more time to watch more shows and DVD's now seen as Sunday was the last day of Man City Women's season so there is only late night NWSL to watch, when I can stay awake.YouTube wise I have been watching a lot of TheGebs24, which is a channel I would recommend.

Been reading : We have decided that we aren't having a TV in bedroom meaning I have plenty more time to read, last week I got a little closer to finishing off my Alex Morgan book which is amazing and I don't want it to end.

Been listening to : Sangria Wine by Camila Cabello is finally out and it is about this what a great song this is. I will admit I was awake at 3am on Friday downloading this. I have also listened to a lot of Fifth Harmony once again along with Taylor Swift who I haven't listened to in a while.

Bought : I got plenty of workout accessories whilst out with my mum and also a couple of t-shirts and shorts. We also got our Shawn tickets but we are getting these as gifts now thanks to our mum and dad.

Plans for this week : I want to carry on with my health eating and get back into the gym. I also want get more bits done in the house.

Nickelback In Leeds

Nickelback Chad


One band I would go and see over and over again would definitely have to be Nickelback. When they came to Leeds on the 5th May, it was my 3rd time seeing them. No 2 shows are ever the same and they are all absolutely brilliant. I went with Liam and his mum again and it was just a brilliant day. To say Nickelback are such a marmite band, every time I have been it has been packed with people of all ages.

Nickelback Ryan

This year we were stood on Ryan's side, which I was super happy about because I have to admit he is my favourite and we were so close. I have to admit I wasn't too keen on the support act Seether as it felt like their instruments were turned up far too loud compared to their microphones, but once again Nickelback came on and absolutely killed it. 

On this Feed the Machine tour they were playing songs from every album and with nine albums they were bound to miss out some favourites. However, the only one of my favourites they didn't play was Satellite, as they played the likes of Lullaby, Animals, Photograph and of course Something In Your Mouth. 

I am already on countdown for the next tour as I am definitely going to be going again, it is a nice day to spend with Liam and his mum whilst listening to great music. 

Have you seen Nickelback? Can you recommend any bands like them?

See you soon,
Lucy

Daily Hair Styling Routine



One of the biggest things for me to feel confident is that my hair looks good. I honestly believe I spend more time on my hair than I do picking out my outfits at the moment, so here is how I get the perfectly styled hair.

1st Step is to either wash or just wet the hair. I wash it every other day so other days I just wet it a little so I can add the product.

Step 2 is to add my R+Co Dallas thickening spray to my towel dried hair, this stuff is brilliant and I actually see a difference in my hair when using it. 

I then add some of the Johnny's chop shop volume mousse, this is a fairly new product but I am noticing some extra volume whilst using it.

I will then blow dry my hair and use this little brush to get my perfect style. I do need to add a heat defence spray into my routine just as an extra line of defence.

Once my hair is dried into the style I want I then add my Vo5 fluff tamer just to take down and static hairs I may have,  especially as the shaved sides start to grow back.

The Vo5 matt paste is the current product I am using to just help me get the perfect style and I am loving it. You can't see the product and it gives a really good hold.

Finally a quick spray of my hairspray just helps keep the hold for the day. This Johnny's chop shop one is definitely my favourite product.

So that is how I style my hair and help give myself the confidence boost daily. It is honestly one of my favourite parts of the day is doing my hair.

See you soon,

Fashion Book Wish List

 Now that we have our house it is so good having chance to put our personality into each room. One room which we are yet to start on is the little room as we are calling it. This room is for guest however I would like it to be a sofa day bed so that the room could also double up as a little dressing room for me. I would love this to have a little dressing table where I can store my makeup and fragrances. It would also be great for this room to include a full length mirror for me as I am starting to get more and more into fashion and making sure my outfit looks perfect. There is also a high possibility that this room will also hold quite a few pairs of shoes as my collection is getting crazy, but that is a whole separate post.

On the dressing table or dotted around the room I would also love to add a few books to do with  fashion as I get more into it plus I love books.

My love for trainers/sneakers really has got out of control I have ended up watching collection videos on YouTube daily. I am definitely a bit of a sneaker-head. I would love to have a book just to look through where it holds different limited editions from different brands. It would also be great to have a few different books as each book is likely to hold different sneakers. Who knows it could inspire the next pair I buy. So here are the sneaker/trainer books I would love to get my hands on.
Sneakers : The Complete Limited Editions Guide.


1000 Sneakers


 Golden Kicks : The Shoes That Changed Sport

 Icons of Style : Sneakers

As well as sneakers/trainers, something else I love is a good quality and great fitting t-shirt. I honestly want to create a wardrobe full of different t-shirts from a variety of brands. I also love discovering new brands so a book all about t-shirts just on a dressing table might give me some inspiration for what to look for. Here is one of the books I would love to add to a dressing table.

Icons of Style : T-Shirts

If you have read my blog for a while you will know I love Snap Back. In fact you can read my Snap Back collection post here. These are something I will buy over and over even though it is rare I wear half of them. There are so many great choices of caps that I would love to just have a book where I could pick it up and look at the different designs. Here is a book that would definitely fit this.

Caps / One Size Fits All

I really do hope Liam agrees to letting me have the room as a little dressing room and I will be sure to keep you all posted on the progress of the room. Can you recommend any other little bits for me to add?

See you soon 
Lucy

Miley Cyrus Converse

MC Conversemiley cyrus converse

I used to watch Hannah Montana every single day after school and in fact I think I watched it every day one school holiday too, it drove my parents mad. If Miley was in a film, I bought it. If Miley brought out an album, I have it. I even got quite a few pieces of her clothing line that came out in ASDA years ago. So when I saw the Converse collection she had done I knew that I was going to get a few pairs. 

I have actually lost count of how many pairs of Converse I have had over the years, I still have quite a few now. If I had to pick between Vans and Converse, there would be no choice it would be Converse every time, to me they are perfect with any look. 

I was honestly worried I would miss out on these because I stupidly spent all my wage straight away this month however, Liam treated me to not one but 2 pairs. Here is what I got...


miley cyrus converse

miley cyrus converse

I love the low converse for the summer, I often wear these with a pair of denim shorts. I grew out of my old pair of white Converse and have been meaning to replace them for a while now. So when I saw these I knew I would be picking them up. What I love about them is that they are black and white which is always a great combination, plus the bandanna print really adds a little extra to the style. You also get this super cute MC logo on the side of the shoe and also as a metal plate on the bottom of the laces. Speaking of the laces I love how you get 2 options, either the bandanna print ribbon ones or simple white, I think I will be switching these around every now and again.

I also chose these hi-top black ones as you really can't go wrong with a pair of hi-tops they are one of my favourite styles year round. I have to admit I have never actually owned a black pair so these were a no-brainer, I was getting them. These are very similar to the white ones just with the patterns reversed. I can see me getting plenty of wear out of these ones specially with some nice skinny jeans.

These are definitely investment pieces in my eyes at £125 for both pairs, but if I could I would have got every single pair from the range. The next thing is to take a look at the clothing she has done with them to see if there is anything I like.

Have you got anything from the range or have you got your eye on anything? Let me know.

See you soon,
Lucy.

Last Week #4


It has been another lovely week up here the weather has been pretty great. Sunday we managed to get plenty of the gardening done with the help from family. It is looking so much better and I can't wait to get out there and start training and just relax out there. The big work won't be starting for a while though. Saturday was spent sorting jobs out in the house and it is so nice seeing things come together. We may actually have a completed room soon. The week nights have also been spent doing odd jobs just so thinks keep moving, the house is slowly becoming more of our home instead of a work site. So here is what I have... 

Been reading : I am finally a little closer to finishing my Alex Morgan book and wow I am absolutely loving it. I actually don't want to finish it.

Been listening to : A lot of Fifth Harmony once again, I am actually pretty upset that they performed their last show on Saturday. I hope it is just a Hiatus and not an actual break up. But I am super excited for the girl's solo projects. I am also in love with Rita Ora's latest song girls.

Bought : I have been really good this week, we bought some lights for the bedroom at last and a blender and that is all.

Plans for this week : This week I want to get more of the bedroom done and make a start on the dining room ( I can't wait to get a dining room table). I also want to stick with my blogging schedule that I am in love with. I need to clear the bathroom cupboards too and unpack some more boxes.

Huge Garden Project #1

One of the perks of the house we bought other than the size of the actual house was the size of the gardens. The house is a semi-detached with a big plot of land, there was talks of a buyer before us getting planning permission for another house on it as it is that big. However, the gardens do need a lot of work on them and I can't wait to get them just as me and Liam wish. We are at a point now where inside there aren't that many major jobs to do but we can start planning out the gardens especially with the nicer weather that we have been having. Luckily for us my dad's friend is a gardener so he is coming down to tidy it up in the mean time and getting it a little nicer for us. So here is how it is looking at the moment.


So to the left of the drive we have this little pathway to the front door surrounded by grass, which has gotten out of control. As it stands we don't use the front door but I would love to get this front bit tidied up. The hedges in the front of the house need cutting down (I want rid all together), and the grass needs cutting. Liam wants to concrete / pave this bit up to a certain point and then put some flowers under the windows in like a little flowerbed and to be quite honest I think it would look brilliant. We also need to find out whose little fence it is separating the gardens as it really needs replacing.


I forgot to put an actual image up of the driveway but that definitely needs re-concreting/paving to make it look a lot neater and the weeds need to go. The garage is also getting ripped down so we can extend the driveway a little and make a nice seating area for the side garden that is fenced off from the drive. 

To the left of the garage we also have this huge space that we are going to level off and some will be the fenced off seating area with access to the side garden and the rest will be left for an extension of the drive, access to the back garden and access to the side door. The green shed thing is hopefully going too and a fence will be put up between ours and the neighbours as at the moment it is just left open. 


This is currently one of 2 ways to the side garden, with the garage going this will be opened up but this maybe where the gate ends up going leading to the seating area and side garden. We also need to see who the hedges belong to and I think these may end up being replaced by a fence if I can change Liam's mind as I hate them. That little old fence will also be taken out for good.

.
Now we are onto my favourite part the side garden. I want to get rid of the hedges, fence posts and the overgrown vegetable patch. I also want to get this levelled out. The hedges on the right are coming down and replaced with a fence and a small seating bit is getting added just by this and where the garage currently is. The rest of this garden will have a football net in and have plenty of space for me to train in as these images don't do its size justice. The BBQ that is currently in maybe staying but we have yet to decide on that.


The back garden is definitely in need of a total makeover. There is currently a fairly big step down so we need to get that sorted. We have just put the rotary thing in for our clothes and the old clothes post needs removing. We then need to level it and decide on if we want turf/stones or decking. One thing I know for sure is Liam gave in and agreed with me that we can have a pond. So between me, Liam and my grandad we will be getting that done. We will probably also end up getting a nice furniture set for around here.

I just can't wait to finally be able to sit out in the garden and enjoy the sun, I really can't wait to get into the side and work on my football again too. I think that this year while the weather is nice there may be quite a few BBQ's where we get everyone we can around and get them to help do bits in each garden just to give us both a hand. I will be posting updates on the garden's as little bits get done.

Can you recommend anywhere good for garden furniture? Or do you have any tips that may help us? Let me know in the comments or over on my twitter.


See you soon,

Lucy



Disney Eats Wish List



It is no secret that I absolutely love Disney so when I was looking on the Disney site the other day and saw the Disney eats range I instantly fell in love. I have a post going up soon which will be a little tour of our kitchen as it currently is, as this is one of the rooms that was practically complete the day w moved in. But these are some of the items from the Disney Eats range I really need to try get...





These measuring cups are £7.00 for the set and I am in love with them. I want these as I am trying to be healthier and I want to start measuring food out properly and making sure I aren't over doing it. Also as I start to use the kitchen more I would love to do a little bit of baking whilst Liam works as it will stop me going shopping, these cups will be a great addition to the kitchen. They are also a pop out design so they don't take up much space.


Me and Liam have a lot of eggs whether they are scrambled or as egg bread so we always need a whisk and I love this set. It is £9.00 for them both however, they are 2 different sizes. These will also be great if I get around to doing that baking.

The spatulas also come in 2 different sizes for just £10.00 and have the cute little Mickey's on them. We always need a spatula for some reason so these would also be a great addition and they would match the rest of the items.
As I said the food we cook usually involves mixing items together so these bowls complete with spoons would be the perfect addition as they fit with the rest of the range and are only £17.00, they are definitely items we would get our use out of.

Disney also do an apron and oven mitts set for £20.00, granted I may not wear the apron but it does look very cute. The oven gloves though would be a saviour, at the moment Liam uses a tea towel to get thinks out of the oven etc and is always saying how it is still too hot. 

So those are the main items I want to get however there is a lot more I could pick out. Have you seen anything in the Disney eats range that you like? Let me know.

See you soon,
Lucy.

Body Branded*

I was lucky enough a few months back to win a competition by Life Of Dan over on Twitter for a whole lot of products from Body Branded. I had never heard of Body Branded until this competition and I have to say after taking a look on their site I was very impressed.  They do both mens and women's underwear from a selection of brands such as Ben Sherman and Reebok.


I was sent 12 pairs of socks, 2 pairs of mens trunks and 2 pairs of mens woven boxers all by Ben Sherman. I remember the first jacket of Liam's I ever stole was actually a Ben Sherman one and it was such a good quality. Same goes for the socks, they are super soft and a perfect fit. I love the variety of patterns I got sent as I love wearing patterned socks daily, I can't cope with plain socks at all especially as my jeans are turned up 90% of the time due to me being so short. I had just bought a load of socks before winning this competition but these have taken priority and I seem to have already got my wear out of them.

The trunks of course went to Liam however, I kept the boxers for myself, as they are perfect for pyjama bottoms. I wear these with a t shirt for bed and they are unbelievably comfy and feel like such good quality.
