Netflix & Chill

WARNING: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE IN A RELATIONSHIP TO ‘NETFLIX AND CHILL’. Well according to me, you don’t. 

Here’s what I think ‘Netflix and chill’ evenings should really consist of. It’s what I get up to anyways. 

Yoga 


So maybe if you know nothing about Yoga, you wouldn’t associate ‘chill’ and ‘yoga’ together. But if I’m particularly trying to relax, then I love nothing more than getting out my yoga mat (or if I’m feeling lazy, it is possible to do it on a bed, trust me I’ve tried.) And follow one of Yoga With Adrienes’ videos. If you’re wanting to know which one you can do in bed, it’s this one, your welcome.

 Pyjamas 

What would a cosy night in be like without wearing comfy pyajamas?! It wouldn’t be worth it that’s for sure. Honestly, I really need to invest in some pyjamas because I haven’t in a while and it’s an excuse to shop, right? So I currently have my eyes on these. 

I personally think these would be perfect for Autumn and they look so comfortable. You can get them from Adore Me, along with plenty of other cute outfits. Here’s Adore Me’s Instagram, which you should definitely check out. 
Nails 


Let’s be honest, if you were doing ‘Netflix and chill’ the traditional way you’d be with a partner. Whom, I’m guessing wouldn’t be thrilled to sit with you whilst you painted your nails. Therefore, it’s much better being on your own or being with your best girl friends and treating yourself to freshly painted nails. 

Drinks 


Personally, I’ll be drinking a hot chocolate to relax or a cup of tea whichever I fancy. But feel free to reach for something alcoholic, or whatever your preference is.

Magazines


If I ever want to forget about spending my ‘Netflix and Chill’ evening alone, that usually means I should step away from Social Media. So I find what helps is reading. I’ve currently been catching up on this months VOGUE and Cosmopolitans November issue. 

Netflix

Watch it. It’s an obvious point. Or movies in general if you don’t have Netflix.

Hope you enjoyed this blog post. It was fun to write about what my Netflix and Chill Evening consists of. Comment if you think I’ve missed anything. See you soon. 

Love, Sophie

How I Revise

So for a lot of you, you could be lucky enough and could be completely over with Exams. But for everyone else, who still have exams coming up or in the future, then this blog post might help you.

These are pretty much most of the ways I revise, what helps me, how I organise it. And I feel like I do many revision techniques and there’s not just one that works for me, I like to do different things for different subjects. Anyways, here’s my probably long blog post…

how to revise 2Firstly, I make sure I have the right equipment. I have loved having folders. I know it can be an absolute pain to carry, trust me I understand. My history folder is so full It wont close properly, and it’s a nightmare carrying it up 3 flights of stairs to my form room on a morning. But anyways, enough of my complaining. Folders make most things so much easier! It really helps me when I come to revise that all the information is in clear plastic wallets, categorised and then dated in order. Feel like Monica from Friends after telling you that.

how to revise 3So the last organisational type thing is a diary. This is my school diary that I get given to write my homework in and it is just really useful to have to carry round. I also have a calendar in my room that I sometimes use to write school events, but I’ve avoided that now as it just really stresses me out. Anyway, this is really great because then you can see what homework needs doing for what day and you can just really keep on top of things.

how to revise 4Okay, now I’ve moved on to the things that actually help me revise. Revision Guides. These are actually some of the best things you can own to revise. Some teachers of mine gave me textbooks to revise from, but these in the picture above are in note form, which just makes life easier. It has everything you need, its all simple notes, questions at the end to each topic and sometimes some quite cheesy jokes, that to be honest I could live without. But these revision guides have helped me out a lot, they fit in my bag, so are great to use in lessons. You can also get the work books, which I have a couple of, which is also great for when you’re wanting to test yourself on what you’ve learnt.

CGP

AQA

how to reviseSometimes, I feel creative with my Revision. It’s usually with the harder subjects that I start to feel this way. So I usually do mind maps for my Chemistry, Biology and Physics topics, because I can add colour and drawings and then nanotechnology, resistors and enzymes don’t seem too bad anymore. Whereas with History I work better with flashcards because I need to regularly test myself.

It really just depends on what type of learner you are. So if you’re solely just a visual person then listening to things won’t work. However, for me, I figure out what works best for each subject. Which then also makes it interesting because I’m not using the same revision technique every time.

how to revise 5Ugh. I absolutely hate exams. But this is what helps me most. Practice exam questions. I think because when I’m actually doing past papers, I’m not In an exam hall getting watched by old invigilators, it takes away the nerves and I can actually think about the answers. And because I’m in a relaxed environment it takes away the scariness of doing it. These really help, a lot. They give you a feel for how the questions are worded. And doing full past exams, you may find similar questions come up in your real exam, which is always helpful.

(PAST EXAM PAPERS) AQA

Or obviously go to your exam board…

I wanted to also leave some links to sites I use to revise from that I haven’t already mentioned:

Bitesize

How to stay Positive

It is very difficult to stay positive constantly. Some people are naturally positive whereas others seem to be down for long periods of time. I would say I’m neither, I try to stay positive but sometimes that doesn’t always work. So here are a few things I could come up with, that I do to become positive or stay positive, if I can feel myself slipping.

1. Talking to the people around you.

This seems pretty simple, because it is. For example, my mum is the most important person In my life. If I need advice, she’s there. If I need someone to cry to, she’s there. My point being is if you have someone you trust, then open up to them. If you feel like you have no body, then look around because someone will be there, you might just need to unload onto someone you wouldn’t usually. And if you feel like you can’t speak to anyone in your life, there’s the blogging community, there’s even me! I’ll listen to anyone’s problems even strangers.

Anyways, I think even if you don’t tell someone what’s bothering you, that’s okay too. Just having a general conversation with someone can help much more then you think, its taking your mind off of the situation. The other day, my mum just told me how proud she was of me and it made me feel so great about myself. It really is just the little things that can make you smile.image4

2. Do something you love.

So this is quite self explanatory and probably shows up on any blog post about staying happy. But its true, I find that whenever I find myself getting down its because I haven’t taken time out for myself to do what I want. Whether that’s writing a blog post or just putting a face mask on. Sometimes without realising life can get busy and you forget to do the things you enjoy; because that’s not going to help you pass your exam, or finish the work before a deadline. But being happy is important too, and sometimes we forget to prioritise it.

I do want to add, that if you’ve read that last paragraph and thought ‘but I literally do not have the time’. You should try Yoga, it has really helped me what with exams, and being in my final year at school. I can do it just before bed, or whenever I’m feeling a little bit stressed. And it only takes 30 minutes out of my day. My personal favourite videos are: Yoga with Adriene

3. Focus on your achievements.

When you’re trying to stay positive sometimes it helps to look back on how much you have accomplished, small things or the big, from recent events or from years ago. Whatever makes you, you, then be proud of that and realise how far you have come. One thing I have started to do, is each day write something down that’s made me smile, laugh, or even feel proud from that day. And I write it on my calendar that’s hung up on my wall, so every time I pass I read one without thinking and then it makes me smile again. There doesn’t seem to be logic to what I do but it does actually make me feel happier.

image2 (1)

4. Sleeping.

Does no one else feel like they could conquer the world when they get the best night sleep?!? No? Just me, oh. But seriously, if things are bothering me and I’m not feeling 100% I’ll go to sleep earlier than what I would because when I wake up I have the energy to get through another day. Another thing, probably sounds bizarre. But if something happens to me that makes me angry or upset and then I sleep on it. I wake up feeling a lot better, like everything will be okay and it never feels as bad it did the night before. In general, sleep is one of the best things to stay positive. Even better, when you have that one pesky little spot and its nearly gone and then you get a good sleep and the next day its gone, I wake up like hallelujah, haha.

image3 (1)

5. Stay away from Social media.

Ahh the one true love, social media. It’s great for finding out the latest relationships/arguments on Facebook, posting pictures that we’ve spent ages to edit for Instagram and finding out the latest world news on twitter. But that’s it. I think, personally, Instagram is the worst for people making their life look perfect. When no ones is. Most of the time, I’m really good at scrolling down my newsfeed, and being 100% happy for the person that just posted a picture of them on holiday, or the person that seems to purchase all the designer make up, before I even know it exists. However, when I’m feeling down they’re the last pictures I need to see. So It’s best to turn off social media and stay in the real world, unless of course your about to post that on fleek selfie, then please go ahead…

If you have made it to the end of this blog post, then WOOO to you cause it was long, I do realise that. However, I really enjoyed typing an advice themed blog post. I really wanted to focus on different aspects of trying to stay positive and not just the obvious; listen to music, go outside. Also, all pictures included I did take myself. Anyways, if you enjoyed, leave a comment, like, catch me on twitter: @Sophi15Samantha

P.S Today was the first day of snow, how crazy is that?!?

What’s in my Travel Bag?

Just a heads up these next three posts will be scheduled as I am currently in Rhodes!! So to go along with the theme of holidays I thought I’d do a what’s in my travel bag? I am only going on a short haul flight so most of these items are more for entertainment. Obviously, these items are just the bare minimal I’ll be taking with me, I’m sure my parents will remind me of something I have forgotten.

travel bag 5Firstly, this is what I will be taking with me (or will have taken) to the airport. I have had this backpack for a while now, I purchased it from Topshop and for the life of me I couldn’t find it on their website. However, I think this will be perfect since I have a suitcase with me for part of the journey, so it’ll make things easier to hold.

travel bag 3The next thing is my purse. Before I board I like to go into WHSmith and buy snacks (who really enjoys plane food?), something to read and obviously I need my purse for that. This purse is from River Island and I’ve had it a couple years now, so again I cant link it to the store. Not just my purse but I will have my passport and boarding ticket for obvious reasons in my bag.

travel bag 2So linking in with my last item, I usually like to buy a magazine or a book for the flight. It kills a bit of time even if it is a short haul flight. Obviously, you have an unlikely chance of reading a full book (if you are a slow reader like me) during a short flight but then you can read whilst you’re on holiday or save it for the flight back.

travel bagI have mentioned these earphones in what feels like so many posts recently, but oh well. I will definitely be using these on the flight to listen to music on my phone. And if I finish my magazine, or get bored of music I will just sleep! Its the perfect time to do so anyway.

travel bag 4Finally, my charger, I will have this in my hand luggage because you never know when you’ll find a quick moment to charge your phone for a bit. Plus I always find it really annoying when you’ve been travelling all day, you get to your destination, then you have no idea where or which suitcase your charger is and your phone is on 1%.

Hope you enjoyed this blog post, like I said I am on holiday for a week so these next 3 posts are scheduled. But like, comment, catch me on twitter: @Sophi15Samantha

Summer Essentials

During Summer, I believe we all have products that are essential to our daily lives but are not necessarily spectacular enough to be in a monthly favourites, for example. Therefore, I wanted to share with you some of my Summer Essentials, that I cant see how anyone else could possibly live without, I know I certainly can’t.

essentials 2Firstly, Sun Cream, everyone needs it. Unless you want to expose yourself to skin cancer and turn into a lobster by the end of the day, then I’d purchase this for your own safety if you haven’t already. But for me Sun tan lotion is a must.

essentials 3Cocoa Butter. Not just Cocoa Butter, anything that moisturises the skin. I have my Soap and Glory Righteous Butter, which I love, but tend to use on days when I’m going out. I use cocoa butter on a night as it also helps to prolong a tan, along with having many other uses. I think this is perfect during the Summer, because I’m moisturising still, but keeping my tan a little bit longer.

essentials 4This is an essential literally all year round, I love it. Vaseline is perfect during the year to protect your lips from the cold and the heat. I also use it as a base before putting on my lipstick as it makes it easier to apply and you get a smoother finish.

essentials 5When I’m tanning and I’ve finished listening to all of Taylor Swifts albums, twice, I usually pick up a book. One that I’m reading at the minute is An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. I love him as an author and even though I’ve just started reading this, I know I’m sure to adore it by the end. Books are definitely necessary during the Summer, to keep me occupied.

essentials 6

Sunglasses! Woo! They keep the sun out of your eyes and they literally look good with any outfit you choose to wear during the Summer. I love Sunglasses, these are my current pair, they are teeny bit big for my head but I just roll with it. This time of the year, would definitely not be the same without these.

essentials 7Can you just take a moment to appreciate how well I did getting these back into its case? Even finding the case is amazing in itself. Anyway, as I previously mentioned about listening to music, Ear phones, they definitely come in handy when I want to listen to music. Especially on planes this is a must, you really don’t want to be that really annoying person on the plane, do you?

EssentialsAnd finally, water. It keeps us hydrated when the sun is bearing down. If you don’t drink, you’ll become dehydrated and if you become hydrated, you could pass out. Trust me, I learnt that the hard way. Water is definitely essential all year round but especially during the Summer.

Summer Crafts

I am currently 3 weeks into my Summer and I wish it would slow down! It usually drags. Anyways, on the days I have had all to myself to do something, I have started to spend my time creatively. And I thought I’d show you how…

artSo for my first project this Summer, my friend and I came up with the idea to make a garment, as both our interests lie in textiles. 3 weeks in, we have only decided what we want to create (a jumpsuit) and completed a mood board with our ideas. However, hopefully during the remainder of the holidays we actually make a start. I just think this is something a bit different to try, especially doing it with your best friend means you don’t do it on your own. Whether you know what you are doing or not its fun to try. You don’t even need to make a garment, I find creating mood boards therapeutic in its self.

art 2Knitting. It’s something I had to learn last year for my Textiles lesson, but I never quite got the hang of it. Then at Christmas I received a knitting magazine, knitting needles and wool (Why, I don’t know). And ever since it has sat underneath my desk collecting dust. So I decided to learn again. It was definitely easier than last time because I taught myself, which is how I learn. I used YouTube videos as a guide and soon after I was picking up speed with them knitting needles. I haven’t got very far but its a distraction to pick up when I’m watching Friends.

art 3So this isn’t craft based at all. I was purely bored and painted on some daisies. It matched my nails though so that’s clever of me. They make great photos, I used watercolours, which gave it a great effect and again I was very bored.

Hope you enjoyed this short blog post, I have plenty of posts coming up. A few scheduled, as I will be going away from the 19th August and I don’t know what the Wi-Fi is like in Rhodes. But there will be plenty of posts from my trip afterwards…I am so excited! Anyways, like, comment, catch me on social media, twitter: @sophi15samantha

July Favourites

As you can see from the title this is my July Favourites, a post I’ve never ventured to do until now. So, I might as well get started with what I’ve been loving this month..

1. Walking 

 If you read my last post, you will know I went walking. And that has been a regular occurrence since my summer has started. I’m surrounded by fields so it’s pretty hard not to go out. I do love it of course, it makes me realise where I live is kinda pretty.

2. Surgical spirits 

 This is probably the most random favourite, so I do apologise for that. However, if you read the odd post of mine or all of them you’ll know about 2 weeks ago I got my second piercing done on my ear. The man that put holes in my ears suggested I purchased this to keep them clean. Honestly, don’t know what I have done without this, it has kept my ears really clean and it’s only another month now until I can take them out, how exciting haha.

3. Shoes 

 Basically, I was in need of some slip ons for the summer as its always easier to have shoes you can literally just slip on. These were from Dorothy Perkins and I think they were on sale for like £6?? So a really good deal and they’re so comfortable!

4. Righteous Butter

 If you can’t see in the photo as there is a bit of a glare this is the Soap & Glory “The Righteous Butter”. And I’m not going to lie I go through stages with this and it’s in no way the products fault it’s literally just because I’m lazy. I do love this product though and have been using this religiously these past few weeks. 

5. Glow job 

 I. Love. This. Product. This is the Soap & Glory “Glow Job” and it’s the perfect product for Summer. During this time I rarely put any make up on my face and just focus in on the eye area. But this is perfect. If you have a tan, it highlights it, if you don’t, doesn’t matter you’ll still glow. I would reccomend this and I know I’ll use this in the next month just as much as I have this past month. 

6 & 7. Nail Varnish

  So I’ll start with the product on the left. This is the Collection 60 second Nail Polish in the colour ‘Candy Floss’. This is the current colour I have on my nails at the minute and I’m loving it. I do have a few more from the same brand in different colours and have been loving it this past month. The one next to it is the Sally Hansen Double Duty. I have used this for months, so I knew this had to be a must in my favourites. If I don’t have this on my nails with or without a colour on top I can feel the difference in my nails. They break quickly without this on. So if you’re looking to strengthen your nails cheaply I’d recommend this. 
8. Music

 I have always had a love for Taylor Swift and her music. But this past month I’ve not only been addicted to her latest album but her older ones too. I literally can’t even list the songs I’m loving most out of all of them because I would have to list them all. Speak Now. Red. 1989. I love them all…

Hope you enjoyed this blog post. Like, comment catch me on social media, Twitter: @sophi15Samantha

Camping Tips

Last week, some of my friends came round to camp. Yes, they came to my house to sleep out in my back garden. You could say it was adventurous of us, we were definitely living on the edge. We could have played with fire and camped maybe further a field but we thought it was a good enough idea, to celebrate breaking up for Summer, the way we did.

After my eventful experience, which you can read about here, I decided I’d write a blog post on my top 5 useful tips.

1. DOUBLE CHECK. TRIPLE CHECK.     E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G.

Now this is a pretty huge point because it covers a lot. I’m not just talking about having the right equipment but I mean checking the equipment works. Of course, it was at my house so anything I’d forgotten I could have just gone inside. But for starters, my “2 man” tent didn’t really meet my expectations. So let’s just say my friend and I were very very close that night. We were also hoping it didn’t rain, not because we wouldn’t like being in a tent if it did start raining, oh no, we prayed it wouldn’t rain because our tent didn’t seem to be all that waterproof… So for your own sake, if no one else’s, make sure you can put up your tent, it is the right size and it is waterproof.

2. Comfort? Gone.

If you want to experience the slightest of comfort when camping, you might as well take your mattress with you. I feel like, I could have had numerous amounts of sleeping bags underneath me but I would still feel the hard ground below. Maybe it’s just me, being the first time camper and not getting anything right but I had the correct sleeping bag for camping, what did I do wrong? If you camp and sleep in comfort comment down below how?

3. Activities are key. 

I wouldn’t necessarily say we got bored during the evening. But maybe if we had had activities to do it may have made things a bit more interesting. We did paint each other’s faces, because the whole thing was supposed to be festival themed, but I still don’t know why we did it. Anyway, different, funny, activities are key to camping. Whether it’s would you rather questions or innuendo bingo, do something that fits your group.


4. Food. Do I really need to explain?

If you don’t eat you’re going to be hungry. If you don’t have the right food, it may end terribly. By that, I mean don’t buy food you know no one will eat. You’ll have wasted a ton of food for nothing. Also, think about the environment you’re in. If it’s freezing why pack ice creams? If it’s warm why bring hot chocolate fudge cake? (To be fair, chocolate cake can be eaten whatever time of year). Anyways, this wasn’t a big problem for us as we had my house to get food in and out of, but it was worth the mention.

5. Stay. At. Home.

For everyone that loves camping, great carry on doing it. For everyone that hasn’t camped before, don’t let my opinion become yours, try it for yourself before you make a judgement. But for everyone else who has camped and can safely say they won’t be doing it anytime soon..you are my type of people. It’s not just for me. I’m not high maintenance. I’m not spoilt and by no means will I not try new things and suck it up to have a go. But camping was uncomfortable. I loved everything before actually sleeping. Sleeping I just could not do. The noises, the ground, everything seemed to happen when I wanted to sleep. Therefore, in my opinion id stay at home. Definitely have nights out in nature, but my type of species are better off indoors..


Hope you enjoyed this different blog post. ITS OFFICIALLY SUMMER!! I can’t wait and now will be posting two times a week. Like, comment and tell me about your camping experience..

🏠Bedroom Ideas🏠

I decided to do a blog post about easy cheap ways in which you could add detail to your room. In the last year, I had my bedroom refurnished. Today I moved this furniture around. With my Mums help we turned my room around..literally. Anyway, in doing this I picked up a few tricks I’d like to share…

1. Flowers 

 Not gonna lie, I’m pretty sure I try and squeeze flowers in every blog post. But still, how could I not? Flowers are just so pretty! I say it everytime but it just imediately lights up the room. They’d look perfect on a window sill, I think, as its usually the place I struggle to fill without making it look untidy. 

I was coming to the end of my blog when I began to tell my mum what I had decided to include. From talking to my mum I found out that it was best to take flowers out of your room at night when you sleep because they absorb oxygen. Now from what I was taught at school I came to believe flowers only ever absorbed carbon dioxide and emitted oxygen. Anyways after doing some 5 minute research I came to the conclusion I don’t really have one. It was pretty much 50/50. Some sites said  it was an old wives tale others said it was true but it was just like competing for oxygen with the person sleeping next to you.

Either way, sorry for the Biology lesson, confusion and what ever you choose to believe  do or don’t leave your flowers in your room.

2. Canvases   

                                                    The canvas on the left is one I painted around Christmas. I know it’s not a work of art and even just a couple months on I know I could do a better job but Its the sentimental value it holds. Neither is it in my room, it hangs in the dining room which makes me feel prouder. It’s a lovely way to liven up the walls. And it doesn’t even have to be on a canvas it could just be on some A4 paper or card.

As for the one on the right, I bought that from Dunelm, which is where most of my bedroom items are from. This does hang up in my room and really goes well with the Parisian theme I have throughout my bedroom. 

3. Cushions

 Thinking about what to include in this post, I realised what I was leant against and that was Cushions. It occurred to me how much I adore having cushions on my bed. As it turns my bed that I sleep in on a night to somewhere I can relax during the day to watch tv or read and I like that separation. They don’t have to be expensive it’s just a nice addition to your bed. 

4. Candles

 Yes. I have a candle addiction. Even if you’re looking at the above pictures and thinking ‘that’s not too many’ then you’d be wrong cause I have a draw full. 

To be fair I could probably do a whole other blog post on my Candle collection. But I’ll just quickly tell you what this consists of. I have a few from dunelm because they were really cheap and last so long, I think around 30 hours. I also have a ton of Yankee candles because who doesn’t? Then I absolutely love my tea lights as I have a load of holders for them dotted around the house. 

Candles are usually fairly priced. Scented are always a bonus to make your room smell heavenly. To wrap up, candles are just a must in a bedroom.

Such a long post! Hope this helped in any way. If you’d like a Room tour post, like or comment down below and I’ll try and do one in a couple of weeks. Next week, Pamper Post!

Pre-Mothers Day Tips

Woo! It’s nearly Mothers Day and even though I haven’t been able to treat my Mum as much as I’d like to, I have worked out a few tips to make Mothers Day extra special. So, if you are struggling like I was you may want to read on…
Flowers. They’re pretty, feminine and in general brighten up a room. I think when it comes to Mothers Day flowers are necessity. They don’t have to cost a lot either, to be fair I think I bought two bouquets and the overall price was only £5. That for me was a bargain. To access them isn’t that hard either. You can be organised and order them online or quickly dash out to your local supermarket. Whichever one you choose you can guarantee flowers will put a smile on anyone’s face.
Breakfast in bed or even brunch? Okay, okay, clearly you can all be a bit more elaborate then this photo above. You may want to add toast? Maybe a fried egg? Whatever your Mums taste is. Just surprise her by waking up early to do something your mum would usually do for herself. Starting off with a treat of breakfast in bed or even just breakfast made by you, it will start the day how it means to go on. Mums deserve to be looked after for a full day! 
Sweet treats. Personally, I think this is a really cute idea. You could even do this the day before to be extra organised. It doesn’t have to be cookies, it could be scones, brownies, shortbread? Anything that you know your mum would love to snack on during the day. If you wanted to go the extra mile add a little touch, you could wrap the snacks in clear plastic and tie it with ribbon. Then you could pass it as a present or just place mini packages around the house you know your mum would find during the day. 

Go for a walk. It sounds daft, but if you are looking for a cheap way to spend Mother’s Day out then keep reading. Yes, going for a walk will not last all day but if you add a couple more of these tips then it doesn’t have to. I try to go for a walk with my mum regularly, this is because whenever we do we have to fill the silence, which means we talk, and ding ding ding that means we bond. And I love that that time where we just catch up on life. Even though, we see each other everyday, we don’t really talk as in depth and detail when we’re walking. So it occurred to me that if them walks mean so much to me surely it’s the same for my mum? Anyway what I’m trying to say is that if you can’t remember the last time you put all your attention on your mum and just spoke, then on Mother’s Day take your mum out for a walk in your local area and you might just surprise yourself. 

Cook dinner. The whole idea of Mother’s Day, for me, is appreciating everything that my mum has done and is doing. To show my gratitude I like to spend time cooking dinner as it’s usually one of the many things my mum does daily. Recently, I’ve tried to cook more often to show my appreciation. Anyway, it’s all up to you when it comes down to the day. You could stay basic with (in my opinion) lasagne or turn the situation very stressful (again opinion) and cook a full on roast dinner. Or if your running late with plans you could always call the special number….takeaway pizza. Like I said its up to you.

This photo is basic because in a couple of weeks, I’m planning a Pamper Night Post. Therefore, I don’t want to reveal all…

Pamper. Your mum would love to be treated to a manicure, pedicure, even a foot massage if your feeling generous. Who wouldn’t? Take a look at it from this point of view. You get to drag all your face masks, nail varnishes, nail files, foot cream, hand cream out and best of all your feminine side is returned. If anything, you can do a double makeover, just remember to make your Mum a priority… It is her day.

It’s come to the end of my Mother’s Day post. Hopefully, you’ve seen a solution to make Mother’s Day extra special, but extra cheap. As always, I hope you enjoyed it and it’s helped for next week when the day finally comes along. Or if your not in the UK then you’ve had early advice. Comment blog post ideas, and if Mother’s Day isn’t next week for you, comment when it is as I’d love to know. 

Next weeks post is: Lipstick Collection
