Sunday, March 18

My Day | Sunday 18th March

Usually, I do a 'Sunday Summary' but I felt like just updating you on my day. Mother's Day has never been something we go to town with, my mum would rather we didn't spend our money on her and she's always SO fussy, we never get it right anyway. She thinks flowers are a waste because they die (yet buys her own mother them), hates any clothes you attempt to buy her, isn't into make up (not like I am!), wears the same perfume (plus has about three back ups) and complains about her weight so we stay clear of chocolates.

Anyway, we asked what she wanted to do and she just wanted to paint our Beach Hut. I could literally sit here and write for hours about our little beach hut, but it a short summary, its one of the few places in the UK you can legally sleep on the beach. It has an upstairs, gas cooker, runs on solar power and can sleep about 8 comfortably, with 3 double beds! We have recently has the downstairs re-done and it needed painting (especially as we all want to sleep there during Easter half term).

She went over there straight away this morning, whilst I had to stay at home and tidy my room. No word of a lie, it was literally the messiest place EVER. It was actually embarrassing. 3 hours later, 1 bin bag and  enough carpet to finally tread again, I finished!

In the process of cleaning, I completely changed up my make up and how I organise/store it. I don't have a HUGE make up collection, in fact, I realised I don't even own any MAC eyeshadows!? But I'm happy with what I do have, any girl would be! And of course, Make Up Collection video will be on its way soon.

I popped to Boots with mum yesterday, checked my boots advantage card at one of those little booths (always worth doing!) and had one for a free sample of Benefit's new foundation 'Hello Flawless'. Being a complete lover of Benefit, I couldn't miss this. The girl gave me two, along with the Eye Cream as I told her I have really dark, under-eye circles. How nice!

Piccie of me waiting for the ferry (there are only two ways to get the strip of beach huts, walk or get the short ferry), and my new diesel sunglasses! Found them in TKMaxx yesterday, tried them on and never EVER feel that sunglasses suit me but fell instantly in love with these. Originally £124, I got them for £24.99? MAD, TKMaxx is really good at the moment by the way, I got a gorgeous lace, grey top too!

And finally, heres a quick shot (and peak of mum painting) of the beach hut. There are roughly 300 along this part of the beach, but don't worry, I'll chat about it more another day. Cute though, right? There's a little restaurant and shop down there, so we all went for lunch, I definitely enjoyed my Fish & Chips!

I spent the evening filming, editing and uploading a video, then went out and did a photography shoot which completely failed. Never mind.

No more sunday summaries for a while, next weekend I turn the big EIGHTEEEENNN! and the weekend after, I'm in Disney.

Happy Mother's Day, hope you all had a good one.

Brogan

  1. I've been reading your blog for quite a while and after tweeting you this evening about a html code box, which is so tricky to do, I decided to stop just reading your blog and actually comment, haha!
    I was so surprised when you replied to my message on twitter, and after getting over my light-headed ness, crazy, i know! i plucked up the courage to tell you how great your blog is. You've actually inspired me to start my own youtube channel and I'm actually going to be doing business studies at college!
    Anyway, just wanted to let you know how good your blog is, and do keep up the posts :-D xx

  5. Ahh I love how you store your make up it looks so smart! I agree with the girl above me, I thought you were older! I turned 18 last July, it's the BEST feeling ever! I'm not looking forward to turning 19 though...! :) Just thought I'd say I love reading your blog/watching your youtube - it's really refreshing to watch an English "guru" who likes the same kinds of things!
