Hey guys :) how are you all? hows the last week of snow been (if you've got any) :)? So last week was super busy! Our school was open on monday and Dom and I like the troopers we are went into school. Although I did feel like bambi most of the day. Do you love the snow as much as we do? As you can see we both found our inner five year old selfs; a couple of weekends ago and dom did a lovely post on all the fun we had. We finally went to see gangster squad this week aswell and all I can say is it was brilliant (plus it contained the beautiful Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone) and as Dom did a post she absolutely agreed! Apart from the mismatched cinema screens. I cant really explain the love Dom has for the man himself Ryan Gosling, although I think he's lovely too ( but i'm more of a Andrew Garfield kinda girl). Also yesterday Dom's mum kindly took me to Derby with Dom and again we just bought a few bits and bobs. We ended up buying a few essentials from boots (as you do) and nipping into New Look and H&M quickly. I'm sure she will do a post on the things she bought and as it's her birthday very soon! Oooops did that slip in there... Yes it's dom's birthday next sunday and I know how excited she is! So as she's told you; Dom is turning 16 in about 3 days! I hope it's the best birthday to date for her! I thought i'd just do a quick post on my ever ongoing love for Soap And Glory! For Chirstmas my mum and dad kindly bought me a big bag full of Soap And Glory products which is the set from boots as they know how much i love their products! Here are some of the products that were inside it>

In a mere 7 days, I will be turning 16! Hence the title's play on one of my favourite songs by The Courteeners ;) Turning 16 has always been a bitter/sweet situation for me - I know, I completely over think everything! It's on the bitter side because when I was growing up I found that my older brothers and sisters friends who were around the age of 16 were rude and they irritated me loads (one party one of my sisters had ended in my Barbie type-write being broke :'( ). However, I have grown to realize that I had these feelings because of my immature age. And then there is the issue of me not being able to use my Blue Peter badge anymore :/ On the sweet side of things, turning 16 allows me a year closer to being 17, which for me, has always been an age which I am really looking forward to. Also, when I'm 17 I can drive :) As well as the advantage of being a year closer to driving, I have developed the idea that every new age I turn opens up a whole new chapter for me to enjoy; whether it's just simple occasions with my friends, or something completely new, I have all of this to look forward to! As I am turning 16, it's tradition for myself to go on a holiday to Disneyland Paris with my family and some friends, however, I decided that this was a little too extravagant for me. I also had to think of my younger brother, he turns 15 the same day I turn 16, and as much as he would have probably loved to have gone to Disney again, I feel bad about taking him away from the possibility of doing something he wants to. In the words of L'amour Josie, my lovely older sister, she is "thoroughly disappointed" that she is not currently packing her suitcase for a trip to Disney. Yet this way, my brother is able to celebrate his birthday the way he wants too, I have a surprise on the way from my Mum which she has spent AAGGGEESS organizing and I get to see my beloved Grandparents on the actual day of the birthday :) As for my surprise from my Mum, I have no idea what it is, but Ellie and two of my other friends have been informed. The situation with my Mum organizing my birthday for me is quite peculiar because I am obsessed with organizing events for other people, but when it comes to myself, I'm not that fussed, really. We did have talks about a full on Sweet Sixteen shin-dig but I didn't really fancy that. There were also conversations circulating the idea of going to a different holiday destination with my Mum and some friends, but I didn't really fancy that, so for me it's all quite exciting! Regardless of the party planning, I did write a list (or two) and yes! I do still write lists! In all fairness, my Mum did ask for one...

After having spent a fair amount of time over the past couple of months attending seriously hardcore revision sessions after school, and doing extra at home in order to succeed in our January exams (sounds like Ellie has done so well! As for me ... it’s debatable) Ellie and I decided that the week that our exams for this month finished, we would do something fun. As it was a school night, we opted for a nice trip to the local Cineworld cinema to see the highly anticipated... GANGSTER SQUAD. (It may be necessary for you to know that I have a MAJOR amount of love for Mr Ryan Gosling, as does Ellie, but she doesn't go in to complete girl mode every time she sees an image of his face or hears his sweet, sweet voice).

Unless you've been living under a rock, you may have noticed the snow! We all know how much the UK panics when we get a dusting, so mine and Ellie’s school ended up closing a couple of hours early on Friday (we are not complaining!) and I suppose that there is a slight possibility that the school will be shut tomorrow too, especially if it keeps on snowing (fingers crossed) however, I highly doubt it. Wearing at least ten layers each, yesterday, Ellie and I decided to venture all the way to the top of my garden to go to the field which is linked to my garden and attempt to sledge. It turned out that we weren't too sure how to work a sledge, so we decided to roll down the hill and make snow angles (as well as various snowball fights - I'd say that I won them in all fairness) instead :) Here are a few piccies of our mini adventure :)

Recently, my Mum and I popped in to T K Maxx. We don't normally go in there, but honestly, this time we had a thoroughly enjoyable experience! In the past when I have been in, I have found that it was completely un-organized and I could never really find anything to buy. Whereas this time, I could have spent loads of £! I decided that I was going to buy a notebook/journal for myself.

Hiya guys :) how are you all?. Hope your all having an amazing new year so far and what have you been up to so far this year?. I'm really sorry I haven't done any posts recently because Dom and I have just been so busy revising for exams. As Dom said we've both been to peter pan, bowling (we were just amazing and I mean amazing haha) and other things so far this year. On the 1st of January it was doms brilliant mums birthday but also my auntys. We all decorated the house and things for her birthday to make it lovely and she loved it! So today I thought i'd do a post on some of the lush face masks i've got. Dom kindly bought me for christmas (love you!) the catastrophe cosmetic which is so soothing and makes my skin feel so fresh. All of the lush face masks are freshly made and smell gorgeous. The catastrophe cosmetic is a blueberry mask with chamomile and irish moss which soothes skin. Heres the tub it comes in and the date it needs to be used by:
