weekend 23/24th feb

Thank you to Hannah, Tamsin & Leanne for image one, four & five! 

So this weekend was absolutely brilliant and I've decided I should start saying YES to more things that come my way. 

Firstly, I went to the Bournemouth Bloggers Meet Up on Saturday, held by Hannah from baileycakes. This was so much fun and great to socialise with other bloggers, especially ones who live close! I feel I've made some great friends plus, we all received fantastic goodie bags with our names on! Inside was a whole bunch of stuff from brands such as John Frieda, Next, LUSH, Jimmy's Iced Coffee and more. We popped into Benefit again to say hello to the lovely team there. Sophie showed us new products which are being released and we tried the new 'Fine One One' blush stick. I throughly enjoyed my day, especially seeing my bestest Megan as we've arranged for me to come up to her uni halls again this weekend, yay! (ps. go show some love and give her a follow!)

On Sunday, Rich and I spent some quality time together by having an extremely spontaneous trip to Swanage! We got on the Ferry at Poole and just drove wherever we felt like; stopping for walks, shopping and a bite to eat. Look how massive our scones were! The 7th photo is actually a painting we found on a wall too, cool huh? 

I went for two job interviews on Friday, both went well. In fact, I got offered a second interview for one but I turned it down as I didn't feel comfortable there. I'm finding it really hard to find the right thing! In the meanwhile, The Beauty Closet hit record sales over the weekend, I cannot believe how many orders came through, it took me ages to wrap them all!

I'm off to post the orders now and staying at Rich's tonight. Hope you have a good week,
