Eleven reasons why periods are the worst

And yep, here come the excruciating cramps. | The 17 Worst Things About Being A Girl 


Can you guess what time of the month it is that I'm writing this?

The fact you have to actually spend you're hard earned money buying sanitary towels and tampons. I mean, they're not cheap and you need them so often. Boys don't have expenses like this, not fair *stamps feet, flails arms*

The emotional roller coaster your hormones put you through. That's fun.

The dilemma you face choosing what to wear, just in case you have a leak, or your sanitary can be seen. 

The food cravings, and the fact you want to eat practically everything. It's hungry work bleeding constantly for a week.

The bloatedness you get and the fact you feel like a whale for a week. This also adds to the dilemma of what to wear.

The awkwardness of staying at someone elses house when you're on your period, or worse still, starting your period when you're at someone elses house. Just kill me now.

Speaking of awkward, the noise of tampons and sanitary towels. I mean really, do they have to be THAT noisy?

The randomness of when it'll appear. I know some people are lucky enough to know down to the hour when they're period will be due, but for others it's a good ol' waiting came, and it often comes at the most random and annoying moments. The worst has to be in the night, wah!

The moment you're, er, changing things over, and there is no bin the toilet you're using. Just why?!?

The pain, oh god the pain, just everywhere.

The fact your dad constantly asks you if you're "due on or somethin?'"

OOTD: The bargain dress I don't want to take off



So you may or may not be aware but from the end of July last year I've been on a weight loss/health journey, (which you can read more about here) and I've actually been quite successful on it. So successful that none of my clothes fit! Which meant that when my cousins wedding invitation came round I needed something to wear. However as my journey is not over I didn't want to spend a lot of money as I'm hoping to get even smaller. Then, one day I was perusing in Tesco and found this beauty for the bargainous price of just £4. I kid you not.

So yeah, I picked it up and tried it on and fell in love. I love the colour, I love the satin top, I love the shape, I love the fact it's five sizes smaller than what I would've needed in July and just gah, I loves it.


The shoes are also a Tesco bargain for just £5 and I've been looking for ones like it for ages. My clutch is from Dotty P's but was sadly not a bargain. (I'm also rocking my FitBit 'cause I'm addicted.)

I do feel slightly bad showing off my bargains when you can't get it yourself, but I do feel like I'm making you aware of the bargains that can be found in your Supermarket so I don't feel quite so bad.

I also want to start doing a few more outfit posts on my blog, and I feel that this is a good starting point.


So to sum up, (said in Ross talking to Mona in Friends voice) I love this dress. It's from Tesco. I never want to take it off. Expect more posts with me showing you my outfit in the mirror with my phone and the new layout app.

Happy Tuesday!

Lazy Girl Beauty Must Haves


We've all had a case of the CBA's and for many it's a daily occurrence. Well, if you're one of these people. This post is for you.

Here are my three favourite things that I think every lazy girl needs.

1) Orgins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask - So for those evenings where the thought of a fully blown skincare routine leaves you edging towards sleeping in your make-up, use this guy. All you need to do is get the make-up off, give your face a wash and slap this on. (Then fall into bed.) You'll wake up with nice hydrated skin and a feeling of getting an extra five minutes sleep.

2) Bourjois Quick Dry Polish - If you're like me and love having painted nails but hate the process of doing it, then this guy is a life saver. Paint your nails in the colour of your choice, plop a drop of this on and your nails will be dry in about 2 minutes. It's perfect.

3) Batiste Dry Shampoo - I'm sure you've heard of this, and it's a morning lifesaver. Washing your hair can be a right chore, and an arm ache too if it's long. Sometimes you need to eek it out an extra day before washing and this is your guy. When it comes to dry shampoo, Batiste is the only way to go.

What are your lazy beauty faves?

21 thoughts you have when you first set up a Twitter for your blog



1) OMG my follower count is going to go up so quickly.

2) I should probably make a blog post telling everyone I have Twitter so they follow me.

3) Actually maybe that's a bit desperate, let's add it to the end of my next blog post.

4) Why haven't I got a thousand followers yet?

5) Quick write something witty and brilliant so that everyone in the universe re-tweets it.

6) Oh, it only got one favourite... maybe I'm not as hilarious as I think.

7) No, that can't be true. People must just not get my humour.

8) This blog post hasn't been read by many people, I know I'll tweet it out.

9) How many times can I re-word this sentence so it looks like I'm tweeting something new?

10) Damn you one 141st character.

11) Oooo a #bbloggers chat. That's a great way to gain loads of new followers.

12) Ah, Twitter drama, how exciting.

13) Oh, another lot of Twitter drama, erm ok.

14) MORE Twitter drama, yawn.

15) I haven't tweeted all day. I wonder if people have missed me...

16) Why are other people's lives more exciting than mine? This is not fair.

17) How come when one person posts a picture of their cat it goes viral and they earn millions yet a picture of my cat is lucky to get a favourite?

18) No ones has commented, favourited or re-tweeted my selife, am I that ugly? Maybe the duck face pout to show off my new lipstick isn't that great...

19) I know, I'll post a picture of my new nail varnish, people eat that shit up

20) BOOTS HAUL

21) I wonder if I should set up an Instagram...

Skincare: Favourite Budget Buys


Over the last couple of months I've been really good and have actually been using what I already have, rather than buying new things. I know, it's a novel concept purely driven by the fact Jan/Feb were very tight months.

In that time I've used products that I couldn't wait to get to the end of, and found products that made me think, ah, maybe I don't need to drop £50 for a can basically filled with water to spritz on my face. Here are three of the products I've used that are budget friendly, and actually good!

Good Things Manuka Honey Creamy Cleanser - This has been the only cleanser I've been using since I left my Origins cleanser in a Travel Lodge in London back in November (sob!) It's a nice mixture of thick without being to heavy and light whilst still being moisturising. It smells lovely, which we all know is important and is a pleasure to use. A good morning and evening cleanser.

Clearasil Superfruits Refreshing Pads - Caroline Hirons recommended these so of course they're going to be good. I think they're around a fiver and they're the only acid toner I plan on using again. So cheap, so easy to use and I love that they're their own little pads. My skin looks brighter and clearer and loves using it. Twice a day is too much, but once in the evening is perfect.

Garnier Micellar Water - Stop buying Bioderma immediately. This is just the same (or I imagine so, I've never tried Bioderma) and you can get Boots Points with it. It removes every trace of make-up, is gentle on the skin, and well it's a cleansing water and I don't know what else to say about it. Just that it's cheap!

What are your budget skincare faves?
