WWW Wednesday

Because of MizB’s post here I have decided to do a WWW wednesday.

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

So i am currently reading..


I am absolutely loving this book so far, a little farfetched but then what romance novel isn’t! I will do a full blog post on both Rainbow Rowell books i have read soon including this and Fangirl. 

What did you recently finish reading?


I have read this before, but wanted to re-read it before I saw the film recently. You can see my review for the film here

What do you think you will read next?


My boyfriend read this and is forcing me to read it, so I will read this next even though it isn’t my usual type of book. This is shown clearly in the above titles haha. 

What is everyone else reading at the moment?

Mockingjay Review – WARNING SPOILERS

Sorry for the spoilers

…but I really couldn’t do a review about this without expressing my opinions towards some things that had been changed from the book to the film. 

Firstly, with the other adaptations of the book ‘The Hunger Games’ film phenomena has really impressed me about how true they have been to the books, the casting is impeccable and everything just seemed too good to be true..

Daily Skincare Routine


My skin is always a constant fighter in a never-ending battle. The problem with my skin is that some days it is extremely oily – like it is now. Other days, it’s perfect and then with a click of the fingers it becomes super dry! So I find it really hard to find products to fit to my skin. 

Although, i think i have done it and the best thing about it, is that it is EXTREMELY affordable!

Mini Haul – New Look, Primark and Superdrug

I went shopping today, and everywhere played christmas songs. It was amazing. *said as she is bobbing along to Michael Buble Christmas*

So, yesterday was a bit of a rubbish day to say the least, I was hungover and quite frankly spent the entire day in bed watching Little Shop of Horrors. Retail therapy would be the only thing to cure this. 

and quite frankly, who doesn’t love a haul?

Now, this doesn’t usually happen but whenever I go shopping with something specific in mind, i never ever ever find it. BUT, today i found EVERYTHING that i wanted. *happy jig*

New Look

I usually don’t shop in New Look anymore because they’re prices are heading towards the high end of high street such as TopShop however, recently I have been LOVING all these duster coats that i see on peoples blogs and i knew that i needed one. So i picked this one up: 


It was a little pricey at £49.99 but with student discount it was £44 but it was so gorgeous i couldn’t put it back!


I was really disappointed in Primark today, as i often am! But all wasn’t to waste as i picked up these amazing Chelsea style boots for £10!!

and also, my MUST HAVE every winter…


and finally…


As all the bloggers always talk about it, i picked up some B.pure micellar water as i am trying to get some sense of a ‘healthy’ face and it was on offer, half price so if it doesn’t work then no worries 🙂

Also, they always rave about Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish hot cloth cleanser and i have been a bit sceptical about whether it is worth £20+ pounds so i found the super drug alternative in their Vitamin E range which was something like £3-4 and it included the muslin cloth. I haven’t used it yet, but will do a whole blog post about what i think of it in a few weeks or so.IMG_0002

Also, i REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted the blush brush from real techniques so i couldn’t talk myself out of that one! A bit pricey at £10 but hey ho ey!

What made my trip extra amazing, was that my town of Bournemouth, have just put up all their christmas market stalls and their German bar and it was just so magical! 

So yeah, Happy Hauling guys.

What is everyones favourite skincare range?
