GlossyBox October 2014

I arrived home on Saturday with a delivery from GlossyBox and I have to admit I was intrigued immediately with the yellow pop art outer box.  I then remembered that last month they included a 'sneak peek' for this months box with was a full size Nuxe Masque so then I got really excited!


I'm still on the fence about keeping my beauty box subscriptions up.  I do feel like my favourite is GlossyBox so it would be hard to let it go just in case I miss out but that aside, this month's box was good.

Bath & Body Works Candle Haul

Everyone that knows me knows that I adore Bath & Body Works candles.  In particularly it's the 3 wick versions that are truly the best as they're better value for money compared to their mini and mason jar versions.  I knew there was a few of their fall/winter scents that they always release at this time that I just had to have, mainly 'Fresh Balsam' for Christmas Day and my two all time favourites, 'Winter' and 'Sparkling Icicles.'

I always think fragrances are a very different thing to describe to another person but equally I like watching these types of videos as if you're going to purchase a candle it's good to see what others rave about.

20 Random Facts 3

As my blog grows I want you to have a sense of my personality and who I am so today's post is 20 random facts about me!

1.  When we were little my brothers had bunk beds.  I used to get towels and hang them off the top bunk downwards with a gap in the middle to create walls for the lower bunk.  I would then pretend it was an ice cream van or sometimes I would climb onto the top bunk and pretend it was a double decker bus. 

2.  I am an excellent 'namer' of things.  My parents say even when I was little I always had a skill of calling my cuddly toys and all of my dolls names.  I could easily come up with excellent pet names too!

3.  When I was around 8 years old I was running down the playground with some friends and a group of boys kicked a football which got caught under my legs and I fell which took a chunk out of my knee so that I could actually see my kneecap.... eeeeee.

4.  I assume that my favourite number is 3 as I was born at 3pm and on the third of the third.

5.  When I was young I gave a girl in school a leather bracelet in exchange for Robbie Williams' phone number.  There are so many funny things when you think about that, the first one being why I believed she had his number, the second being what on earth I was actually going to do with it and the final one being that I didn't have a phone.

6.  When I was 18 my boyfriend at the time was a policeman.  A rare night out into Liverpool with my friends ended up with him and his partner picking me up in a police riot van to take me home which he would possibly have gotten into a lot of trouble for but in my slightly tipsy state I thought it was hilarious.  Mum was worried about what it looked like to the neighbours....!

7.  I have over 50 perfumes as I have an obsession with fragrance.

8.  I will defend those who I love without a concern for myself.  When I was in my teens there was a girl who was a little bit on the crazy side and had been rumoured to have brought a knife into school (who knows if that was true!)  One day she started picking on my friend which was getting more and more heated.  Eventually I figured she was going to hit her so I stood in front of her and got kicked in my thigh so hard it left a bruise in a perfect shape of her shoe.  I suppose looking back it's lucky that she didn't have a knife on her after all but thankfully she was expelled and has since seen me around and apologised.

9.  Although I have been to Toronto and we went over to Niagara Falls, I would love to explore the Vancouver side of Canada.

10.  My first pet was a hamster called Frosty (we got him on a Frosty day!)

11.  I love the 'Real Housewives Of' and most of the States.  I particularly like Orange County, Atlanta and Beverley Hills however I did randomly see Vancouver I think it was and loved that as well.  I also like Vanderpump Rules.

12.  My favourite food is Italian, I adore pasta!

13.  My favourite season is autumn, I love that time of year where as everything cools down and you can get all snugly.

14.  I would definitely prefer to be too cold than too warm (within reason!)

15.  One of my favourite quotes is 'People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime'  It just couldn't be more true.

16.  I always like to sleep in the further side away from the bedroom door both at home or in hotels.  I suppose I feel safest that any monsters will get him first which is completely rational, of course.

17.  I am a wimp when it comes to spicy food, the most I have handle in a curry is tikka and even then it just depends on who's made it!

18.  I enjoy the smell of petrol which I appreciate probably isn't the best for you.

19.  I have a bit of a 'thing' for cows, I just think they're cute.

20.   Due to my travel agent background I know a disturbing amount of airport codes (three letters that airports use to identify each other)
