Accidental on purpose makeup splurge inside

Makeup Splurge Inside

Sometimes when I’m feeling rich (the 5 seconds between when I get paid and when I pay bills and allocate money to responsible things like mortgage accounts, wedding accounts and savings accounts) I like to go onto StrawberryNet and buy makeup.  Why?  Because I like makeup and they have free worldwide shipping, but mostly it’s because I like to receive packages in the mail.  It’s like a gift from my past self to my future self.  I’m sure you all know what I mean.

September Favourites

Oh look at that another person trying to be all like ‘I’m a real blogger, I write monthly favourites posts’.  Yup.  I’m trying to be that girl.  I guess they wouldn’t be so popular if they didn’t work, and to be honest I’ve been buying some stuff lately that I’m excited about and what kind of person would I be if I didn’t share my purchases with my closest internet friends #InternetBFF4Lyfe.

So lets get started on my September Favourites.  No one is here to listen to me babble on (or are you?!.. Hi Mum)

7 non patronising books that will give your life a boost

non patronising books

I’ve been reading a lot this year- Yay me!!  It was kind of a mini new years resolution.  I also decided that I was going to buy physical books rather than e-books because I needed something that wasn’t on a screen.  Working in front of a computer all day, watching TV after work, using a computer for blogging, and my addiction to things like Facebook/Twitter/Pinterest/You Tube on my phone was starting to get a bit much for my poor eyes so I had to get them a non screen related hobby.  Should I have picked exercise?  Probably… but nope.

Almost Adulting Book Review

Almost Adulting Arden Rose

Oh look at that, another You Tuber writing a book. It seems to be the in thing at the moment, doesn’t it.  I have to admit that I get really sceptical, but I’m yet to read a book by a You Tuber that I didn’t like.  Maybe it’s a case of severe jealousy.  I wish I could get a book deal out of my work.  Maybe I’m not trying hard enough.

My Not So Perfect Life Book Review

book review

I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that I started this little blog series.  I know it’s only my second book review, but it’s exactly what I needed to kick start this reading thing again.  The only down side is that now I want to read all the time instead of blog.  Oh the problems I have.  I also feel like I may be the last person in the world to discover Book Depository.  Those books are CHEAP compared to the book stores, aren’t they!!  And free worldwide shipping?  I must have been hiding under a rock to miss this little gem!!

The Rosie Project Book Review

Book Review

When I was a kid I used to read a lot.  My favourite part of the day was between 8.30pm and 9pm when I was tucked up in bed with the latest Baby Sitters Club book.  Since becoming a little bit more ‘adult’ my reading time has slowly faded away.  During uni I spent so much time reading thick text books that there wasn’t enough time for anything else.

Now that I’m mostly all done with that my aim is to start reading again.  And not just books on my iPad either, actual physical books.  iBooks is handy for when I’m out and about but nothing compares to a physical book in your hand and the smell of freshly printed pages.

Happy Birthday to Me: Turning 31

Turning 30

The 31st was my 31st Birthday.  Yup.. 31.. on the 31st!! I can’t believe it myself.  Its scary how the years go so quickly when you get older, not that turning 31 is old (I hope).  It feels like only yesterday I was celebrating my 30th birthday in the most mature way possible with a trip to Harry Potter World in Orlando.  This year was a little bit more sedate but I still had a great day.
