BOMB cosmetics - Little hotties

Today the girls, me and my mum had a little trip out to our local garden centre 
as they had a little mobile petting corner visiting and with the school week off coming to an end it was the perfect way to end it! 
They have a great selection of Yankee Candles so I sniffed those little jars of heaven down.
A few steps away was BOMB cosmetics little hotties range at £7.99 for how many you can fit in a box those little babies were coming home with me! 
My mum treated me to a box :) 

With your box full of little hotties of your choice you get a little booklet that shows you what hotties to put together to get a certain scent, although it's a little tricky to tell them apart once they've been in a box together and mixed up I can't wait to get mixing.
I managed to fit 44 little hotties into my box so pretty impressive for the price, considering I was going to be paying something like £1.39 for just one Yankee wax tart!

Our bulb progress

Back in April I done a blog post on the bulbs we potted over the Easter holidays with nanny.
So I thought I'd share the progress so far :) 
I'm quite impressed with myself although the watering has been kept for the girls to do I've done the odd bit of watering when they've forgot but usually anything like this lasts a few days when it's left in my care.

Simple - spotless skin

I've been drying to get my hands on some of the simple range for ages now but 
although they aren't to pricey I'm very tight on spending when it comes to myself so I'd look at the price and walk away. Especially when it comes to face wipes because in my house they end up getting used for everything snotty noses, little bums, wiping up spills etc
But while browsing online at Tesco as I had a £1OO gift card (thanks to sky) they had a lot of the simple range on offer for £1 and £1.5O's so I snapped them right up, there's others I have my eye on and in my basket ready to buy as I had to go in store to do my shop in the end with my gift card and they only had these ones in stock that I could see.

simple spotless skin - quick fix cleansing wipes
£1 RRP £2 which I'd still happily pay after using them. I really have noticed a difference in my spots from day one just like the packaging says.

simple spotless skin -rapid action spot zapper
£2.5O RRP £5 I'm yet to use this as my skin has cleared up so well with the wipes alone I've had no reason to but if the wipes are anything to go by this will be a god send.

simple spotless skin - triple action face wash
£1.5O RRP £3 Again I'm yet to use this but it seems promising with how well the wipes have worked.

Although these have now gone back to full price with Tesco they are on offer of buy one get on FREE! On until 9/6/2014

Cheap and cheerful finsihing touches - Girls bedroom

With the girls bedroom redecorated AGAIN! I thought I'd share with you some of the cheap and cheerful finishing touches that really makes their room.
(It's yet to be wallpapered but I need to grab it and nag Andy enough to do it)

Each of these items cost me no more than £5 each!
The hair clip holders I decorated myself you can find a post on what I used and where I got the stuff from here
Almost everything featured in this post can be found on ebay apart from the flower light that's from ikea :)

Blog love

I've seen a few of these posts around and loved reading each of them, So I thought I'd do one myself :)
These are my top 5 go to blogs! 

This lovely lady is my very own fairy blog mother, If I have a question on how I do something to my blog or fancy a change of theme shes the first one I turn to. She's become a very good friend to me the past few years we've started talking further than the odd comment back on a forum,

Hayley is super lovely, I love her blog and find her so easy to approach some bloggers give me the impression they wouldn't give me the time of day but Hayley has never come across that way and takes the time to leave me a comment or two on my posts.

I've been talking to Christie online for a good 6 years or so now. She's become a best friend one that I turn to for things people close to me don't know, I still remember my bebo message congratulating me on the birth of Issy :) 
I find myself hunting on her blog for a new post so much that if the internet could hand out restraining orders I'd have been hit with one by now.

Another blog I find myself stalking for a new post near on everyday in case I missed an update on her gorgeous little lady, her pregnancy, crafts post or a haul.

I just adore this mummy blog and love seeing little updates on her little family whether it be what they've been up to or the amazing crafts her and her girls get up to :) 
My day wouldn't be complete without heading over to Michelle's blog. 

Be sure to head over to these lovely ladies blogs, I promise you won't be disappointed each blog is run by truly wonderful ladies!

A peek into my instagram

For those of you that don't follow me on instagram here's a little peek at what goes on over there :)
I meed to change the link on my little button >> As I've changed my instagram name since that went up.
You can find me over on instagram as mummaoftwogirls

Would you know what to do?

Wow what an eventful few days!
Would you know what to do or notice the signs of someone having a stroke?
We see the advert daily but would you notice the steps as they were happening in front of you to a love one?
Yesterday started off nice and happily Andy's bike was finished and he was off to give it a test ride, as he was going to be gone for awhile me and the girls went up to my mum & dads for dinner, Just as I had left with Daisie (Issy was already there) I got a phone call from a hysterical Andy who couldn't breathe and struggled to breathe and get out his words. 
Ahh.. Somethings happened with the bike and his come off no major panic as I knew he'd be okay but be concerned about his bike more than himself, How wrong was I?
He had infact called me in such a state because he had just witnessed his dad suffer a stroke, with that one word being said I ran as fast as I could to get to him, almost losing a toe to my jellies on the way but I'd do it again in a heartbeat, Thank god Andy had noticed from the very beginning and got the ambulance out as soon as he knew for sure.
I've seen the advert many many times but I still don't know if I would know how to react and what to do?

Luckily Andy noticed his dads face straight away and then his arms and the ambulance was there very quickly, His still in hospital but is expected to make a full recovery and is slowly gaining movement back in his left hand side.
It really has put into perspective how suddenly these things can happen one minute he was helping Andy with the finishing touches to his motorbike and within minutes he was having a stroke.

LUSH - Sakura

This morning I got to use my sakura bath bomb and to be totally honest the child in me was totally disappointed :(
I thought with all those pink and the random blue specks I'd be in for a nice colourful bath but I was wrong. 
It turned the water a musky sort of colour but the smell was just amazing!
I have a blocked nose but what I could smell was delicious it smelt as if i'd opened loads of those huge sherbert sticks. For that reason alone I'd repurchase.
I must add I never got to the centre of this bath bomb so if there is a surprise in the centre I totally missed it as Daisie seems to have a thing about not letting bath bombs totally finishing I have to keep putting them back in without her realizing and as she was in charge of my bath bomb this morning her rules had to be kept and there's still some of it on the side of the bath waiting for me to jump back in the tub a little later once the girls are asleep.

Decisions Decisions

Decisions Decisions

Next month I'm off to a friends wedding and I've left it stupidly late to get my outfit together.
I'm pretty set on this jumpsuit but I'll be wearing a belt with it as I feel my bum bag of a belly will be highlighted without one.
I love all of the shoes I've narrowed it down to, number 3 I'll get plenty of wear out of but aren't the other two gorgeous??
I'm not much of a heel wearer but will this jumpsuit look okay with a shorter heel?
And then onto a necklace all white or a little bit of black as there is a small amount of black on the jumpsuit?
I'll be teaming/finishing off the look with a white oversized clutch.

Hauly Hauly

Today I totally failed at what I set out to do! 
I popped into H&M for a hat I got the hat but also came out with 2 pairs of leggings and 4 dresses for the girls oppss...
I went into primark for some leggings and a certain pair of shoes I left with every but them! 
I went into the Disney store for frozen stuff came out with 2 cups and neither is anything to do with frozen but that's their fault their frozen section was teeny
And LUSH well anything that looks good is coming home with me (if I could afford it one of everything in the whole shop would be in my bag)




When I haul I really do haul and I'm never happy with the photos, I'd love to start doing haul videos but I'm way to shy :/ So the photos will have to do I guess.
