Week commencing: 18th May

 This week has been relatively good. I'm feeling more like me again and enjoying life, despite the unavoidable bumps in the road.

I even treated myself a bit, nothing too luxurious,
just a trim :) but every little bit helps.


I still have so much love for this linky
it really does make you feel allot more positive about the week.
Thank you Morgana @ but why mummy why for hosting.
I cant find the words to express my thoughts on this post.
I don't feel I can even begin to give it enough credit. 
This post says everything for me, thank you truly Kate @ Pouting in heels


Benefits Britain - Channel 5
 Documentary series lifting the lid on the reality of life on benefits in Britain.
I was totally gobsmacked and disgraced by this programme, mainly by the mum of 10 who is on 20k of hand-outs a year. Who was openly drinking vodka and smoking with her children and swearing every other word. The fact she was covered in tattoo's didn't faze me at all, an I'm usually pretty un-shockable but she really was vile. An after watching her reduce her grand-daughter to tears for having ginger hair, I was left feeling so angry.
I'm not sure I can bring myself to watch it again.

Impulse - Be Surprised - Violets & Red fruits 
     This scent is heavenly, its my new spray of the summer and I will no doubt re-purchase it over and over again in the next upcoming months. Its so fresh and addictive, I cant stop spraying it.


 I've heard time and time again, that green eyed women suit orange lip colour. I recently heard this statement again, from a very well known vlogger - Zoelle
(who is a big guilty pleasure of mine over on YouTube). I'm now edging towards making a purchase, but I'm just not sure if I'm adventurous enough to do it or to pull it off. Orange is a big statement to make.
Decision's? Decision's?



  This week I've restrained myself from making anymore unnecessary purchases and I made do with what I had in my wardrobe. 
Tonight I plan to go out to the local curry house with my
friends for a 30th celebrations.
Everyone who knows me knows I love curry and this is my perfect night out.
  After lots of deliberating, I've chosen this summery number, knowing my luck it will rain just to throw a spanner in the works. Just my luck.

and lastly:

  This quote is from my post Finding that happy you again which I posted yesterday, I'm in no way an expert on happiness but I do know a thing or too about feeling blue. I think the quote is perfect :)

  1. I have green eyes to and find that my red lipsticks with an orange tint suit me best, like MAC Lady Danger. So maybe give that a try?
    Love that quote at the end, I'm off to have a read of your post now.
    Enjoy the weekend! xx

    1. Thank you for the product tip, I really want to get my hands on this now :) I may have to treat myself this weekend. Thank you for hosting x

  2. I hope the weather holds out for your curry night so you can wear your pretty dress :-)

    1. Thank you :) I hate the rain and I hate frizzy hair too x

  3. Aww I like the dress, hope tonight goes well. As a Survivor too I will have to go and have a read, not in the place to read it now, MUST remember to come back. I don't watch television but I'm sad to hear that the 'Benefits Britain' took a different spin on what everyone was saying last week. I guess they need to show both sides. Have a great weekend #littleloves

  4. I think reddish oranges are nice with green eyes. I think Hannah Gale ( recommended a pretty one this week so maybe have a look at that? I have green eyes but I tend to like neutrals or bright pinks and I don't like orange on my lips at all!

    I haven't seen that Benefits Britain show but I tend to be a bit funny about things like that because I feel like it always depicts people on benefits in a really bad way. As a single parent without a job I do claim benefits but I am nothing like the people on TV so I get all defensive when I watch them!

    Have a great weekend xxx

  5. I love Impulse :) Hope you have a fun night out and that you got to wear the lovely dress. Have a good weekend xx

  6. Your dress is lovely. Hope you had a great night out

  7. I can't watch Benefits Britain, it makes me so mad! #allaboutyou
