Only boys should buy you perfume...

Hey everyone! I have been a little incognito this week, mainly because I have been busy catching up with things as we get into the new year. One of my new year resolutions is to make sure I make time to see all my friends from uni, as well as my usual homeboys. I think it can be easy to lose track of time and then realise you haven't seen someone for like over a year. With that in mind, I have been frantically txting and facebooking everyone I want to meet up with (don't do this all on the same day, it gets mental!), so blogging has taken a little back seat this past week. 

Along the lines of making time for people, I also went on a date night with my boyfriend Alex on Tuesday. We went to Frankie & Benny's for food, which I didn't notice that they play language cd's in the toilet before! For a brief second I thought someone was trying to purchase some oranges in Italian, whilst in the loo... 

We then went bowling, which I won (whoo-hoo) and then went to the arcades and spend a ridiculous amount of money on guitar hero and air hockey (which I won again). After all that, we went to the cinema (the original plan) to see Tom Cruise's latest flick 'Jack Reacher', which was really good and deffo worth a watch if you are thinking about going to see an action film anytime soon (about 8 of his friends turned up randomly to see the same film and ended up booking the seats right next to us, which was very funny but slightly manned up the date night vibe!).

I've kind of gone off the track of this post a little, so anyways during my week I did manage to find time to make a trip to Boots for some new purchases. I really cannot resist using those points vouchers they send you in the post. I did actually buy things I needed though (that's what they all say!) so I don't feel too bad. 

Paco Rabanne 'Lady Million' Perfume 
I didn't get any perfume for Christmas this year and had pretty much used all my others, so I thought I would treat myself to a new scent. Some of my housemates at uni had this perfume and I loveeeee it. I am useless at describing scents, so just trust me that it's lovely. The packaging is really glam, which is important as bottles kind of end up as a decoration in lots of people's bedrooms. I also like the advert, especially the bit where she gets given the diamond ring and makes the rock bigger - we would all do the same! 

Soap & Glory 'Flake Away'
This is a repurchase for me and I always make sure I have a tub of this in the shower. Like most of the Soap & Glory products this smells ahhh-maaazzee. I have tried quite a few exfoliators and this one is the best in my opinion. It lasts so long, smells great, does the job and only costs £8

The lighting was poor for some reason on this picture! 

Rimmel 'Wake me up' Foundation 
I have been using Max Factor's Smooth Effect Foundation (here), but as its pretty much run out so I thought I would try something new. I have heard SO much about this foundation on YouTube and some blogs, as well as knowing Tanya Burr is fan (love her #burrbears). I have to say that I was really impressed, it has great coverage and isn't too heavy (probably best for people who only need a light coverage, as it's not very heavy duty). It says it has a radiant glow effect, which is deffo true. I managed to get it for £4.99 on offer in Boots, but I think its only a few pound more normally anyway. Recommended! 

Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner
I have been meaning to purchase a red lip liner for a while now. I kinda went from having no red lipsticks to about five all of a sudden and as you all know they can be a hard colour to keep off your teeth or the rest of your face in general. This lip liner was £3.99 and it does the job perfectly! It has a twisty applicator and an angled pencil making it very easy to apply, so big love for this. 

Leave your links below if you have purchased anything new with your Christmas money and if you have any new years resolutions, especially if they are a bit quirkier than the usual 'get fit' ones (failing miserably at this one already!!). 

You can follow me on Twitter here if you fancy it too.
