Ah it’s been a little while hasn’t it? As many of you may know it was half term over the last week and because I have a very excitable and always on the go 7 year old I took a little break to spend some time with her and I’ve had Hayley stay with me for a few days at the beginning of the week.
The week has been filled with fun and laughter, trips into London, plenty of singing and dancing and to finish the week off we saw One Direction in concert…. Panga and I have waited a whole year for this day! I bought her tickets for her birthday last year and a mere 2 weeks before her 8th birthday we got to use them (Gosh that’s scary…. She’s 8 in TWO WEEKS!!! EEEEK!!). Just thought I’d share a few random snaps from the past week and then normal beauty related posts shall follow!.
I have absolutely loved the last week and have loved spending as much time as I possibly can with Panga…
Ah the 1st of January, the day where people vow to go to the gym, give up certain things and feel like they have turned a new leaf for the new year ahead… You’ve got to love resolutions and the fact that 99.9% of them are always broken before they’ve even started!
I’m not too sure if I’m even going to make any this year, I shall just take life as and when it comes and if certain things happen I had wanted to achieve they do and if they don’t then I won’t sit and hide behind a rock crying because I shall have another shot at doing anything else I want to do.
I thought I would share basically a year of pictures because I’ve had an eventful one and I wanted to post the happy ones that make me realise that all the troubles and tantrums was worth it!
The last year has taught me….
♥ That I cry too much over TV shows
♥ I cry even more when my favourite TV show ends (One Tree Hill I’m looking at you!)
♥ That I have spent some wonderful moments with other bloggers especially Gem, Natalie and Tanya
♥ You can go on holiday with practically a complete stranger and come back from it with a life long best friend
♥ That I am OBSESSED with One Direction and Ed Sheeran
♥ I hate the rain
♥ My best friend is even more perfect than I ever thought she was and I am so proud of her and her gorgeous children
♥ Being ill doesn’t mean I can’t still do because I can
♥ The Friendly Ham is actually the Friend at Hand
♥ Friendships aren’t always easy but when you can get over things, forgive and forget it makes them a lot easier
♥ I have the most supportive friends and family I could ever wish for in the world
Hopefully this year will be filled with as many laughs as last but just a little less stress and a lot more happiness and healthiness!
I can’t believe it has been 10 long days since I last posted but I always get caught up in Christmas, having time off work seeing friends and just generally enjoying all the festivities.
I hope those of you who celebrate Christmas had a really wonderful one and got everything you wanted and more! I can tell you I was thoroughly spoilt this Christmas which I am utterly grateful for as I got a lot of what I wanted and got to spend time with my family.
Just thought I would share a few photos with you guys…

I didn’t know if you guys would like to see what I got for Christmas or not, so if you do let me know in the comments and I shall show you.
I am sat here feeling worse for wear due to the fact I have the most swollen throat, headache, achy body and sore eyes but I was getting bored of constantly laying down trying to make myself feel somewhat human that I decided I shall give you all a little sneak peek into my life over the last few days.
I think Friday has to be one of the best days of my life…. EVER!
I went to go and see Britney at the O2, I don’t think anyone has seen me as excited as I was in my whole entire life. Alex was in pure shock of the excitement and love I have for Britney so in true fan girl style I sang along to every single song, screamed so loud, brought overpriced merchandise and even shed a tear at the fact that I was watching my idol for only the 2nd time in my life.
I then headed over to the fammos house where drinking games and poker playing started…. Cue a slightly tipsy me!.
I went to my first ever Aussie Party since becoming an Angel.
Seriously had a fantastic night, I met up with Tanya (amazing girl, with a lovely blog who’s photos have been used below) and her best friend Liane (absolutely hilarious girl – we oggled the Aussie hunks all night). Then we headed down to Shaftsbury Avenue where the Aussieversary Party was happening.
We were greeted by the lovely Holly outside and then handed Champagne by half naked men once we were on the rooftop ;). I had a bit of a blog fan girl moment when I met my all time favourite blogger Sinead who I have to say is as lovely as I thought she would be and so hilarious! Also met the lovely Stephanie, Ling and Carla who all made the night amazing!.
Spent passed out sleeping the day away!.
Ah the day where all the scary people come out to play. Panga was so excited about dressing up and going out trick or treating, its quite nice because all the kids were out and houses were lit up with lanterns and ghostly decorations.
She decided she wanted to be a witch so out came the face paints to create this green and purple wicked witch! She is actually wearing my Halloween wig to add more drama because hers was and I quote ‘Too short and just not scary enough’.
