Christmas is coming and along with it breeds a multitude of pop up German markets across the country. This happens every year and by some blasphemous occurrence I had still yet to sample the joy in full HD of the delights the Leeds version holds. I have popped into the market in previous years but have never spent much time there or been with more than one person therefore it’s never really held magic to it’s full potential. This year however is different, celebrating something my friends and I like to call ‘Billingsmas’, we all were on our way for a lovely start to the Christmas (or Billingsmas) festivities.
Hello out there, lets get straight into this one shall we? Christmas is round the corner and I thought what better way to make a start on the holiday season than with that of a little bloggy post here. All we get asked as it draws closer to the annual Saint Nick visit, is what we’re wanting for Christmas and I’m sure I’m not the only one who actually feels pretty darn awkward about the whole situation. Maybe it is me, who knows – but I know for a fact that I always feel mega cheeky when this question is thrust upon myself. I don’t know what budget a person has, or in terms of my Mom – how many presents she’s wanting to spoil me with this year.
Today’s post I guess is a little more of an account of a recent event I attended and an appreciation of relationships with the people I care about. Two greatly cherished friends of mine got married at the weekend, two of the most kind-hearted, loving, respectful, funny and intelligent people I have had the pleasure of meeting. I can’t imagine anybody better suited for either of them and I’m so incredibly elated for both Mark and Nadia. Whilst on this note, I’d like to take the opportunity again to congratulate them and wish them every happiness in their lives together. You are both amazing, beautiful people and deserve the very best of everything. Thank you for inviting me to share your special day, I had an absolute blast and will always have my own very fond memories to keep. You both looked absolutely sensational and I felt very proud indeed, you even managed to get both myself and Aimee crying – which neither of us expected in a million years!
Yesterday evening (Wednesday) I had a wonderful time going for a carvery meal in celebration of a friend’s Birthday. We all went to the Toby Carvery in Horsforth which has delightful food and a lovely atmosphere complete with friendly and attentive staff. I have already been receiving questions on various social media profiles asking where I got different things I were wearing or asking what make-up I used, therefore I thought I’d make a nice little post about just that!
Okay so what’s the deal with these new shopping apps for the Iphone and Android lately? Apps such as Wish, Cute, Home and Geek etc are abundant on social media right now. If you’ve somehow managed to not stumble into one of these just yet and have no idea what I’m talking about then let me summarise. These are all free download phone applications in which you can use to shop until your heart is content, they boast incredibly cheap prices on a range of items ranging from cosmetics, wigs and fashion through to technology and homeware. Are they as fantastic or as safe as they make out however, are the retailers on there simply con artists or legitimate businesses?
On Tuesday I said I’d be posting twice today due to Monday’s blog post being late, so here is the second post for today and I thought I’d do a tag which incorporates learning a little more about myself whilst still on the subject of beauty! I found this at: http://themakeuphoneyblog.com/
Whilst rummaging around my bedroom for something I stumbled upon a hidden gem! Behold a very old yet very exciting find, a make up palette consisting of powder eye-shadows and blusher!
Hello there! So today I have a few purchases to share with you all. My nails are in god awful condition, as pictured further below. They have zero strength, they’re probably just about as bendy as a piece of string and are constantly breaking or splitting. Of course it doesn’t help that I’m a notorious nail biter! Oops, my bad. I do try really hard not to and sometimes I do really well but I always return to the beginning of the cycle each time. Side note, if anybody wants to recommend something to help me not nibble then that would be amazing as nothing I’ve tried in the past has yet worked.
Welcome all to my crazy little corner of the internet! You may call me Davis, I’m a twenty something year old from the not so sunny UK! I decided I’d jump into the realm of blogging amidst the insane amount of already really talented bloggers out there for a few reasons, such as;
