Superdrug Haul

I thought I would share with you the things I brought in Superdrug on my shopping trip from the weekend.

I only went in to get some more Maybelline Falsies Volum Express mascara in Black. But as I walked round I picked up more things for my basket.

The mascara was £7.99 and this is my favourite mascara at the moment I use this every day.
Then I picked up the Maybelline  Brow Drama Brow Mascara in Dark Blond. The price of this was £4.99.
I needed some new shower gel and noticed my Favourite one was on offer. The Original Source Vanilla and Raspberry fragrance. This smells so gorgeous you just want to eat this when you use it. Was on offer at 99p.
After buying the Strawberry laces hand wash and loving that one I wanted to try another fun edition. So I brought the Bubble Gum one and this was still on offer at 89p. Love the colour of this its looks so pretty.
The next two things I purchased was L'OREAL Skin Perfection. The Soothing Gel-Cream face wash for £4.49 and the Micellar Water for £4.99. Cant wait to try these out and I love the packaging as they are pink.

Apps on my I-Phone

So today I thought I would share with you the Apps I love on my I-Phone. I wont sit here and tell you about all the Apps I have on my phone as that would just bore you all. So I will just pick my favourite top 5.



1,
Spotify
How can you not love this App free music!!!!! I listen to this when I am at work and at home. You can listen to any album or artist you want and also they suggest radio channels you can listen to which will play you songs you would like linked to what you have listened to. I have not paid the extra money for this yet so I can only skip a certain amount of songs a day and cant listen to music offline.

2,
Bloglovin
I love to catch up on people Blogs daily so just have a quick look through this App and have a few reads during my day. If you would like to follow me on Bloglovin my link is

Add your link in the comments so I can check yours out too.

3,
My next one of course is Twitter. This is a great way to keep track off everything going on and also to keep up with other Bloggers. I never really used Twitter before blogging but now I am on this every day and I am addicted.

4,
Instagram
I have always loved Instagram as I love looking at other peoples photos and what they are getting up too. I guess that's me being nosey. HAHA
I also love to post a lot of photos on there myself as I love taking photos and TRY to be creative with these as well.
If you would like to follow me on Instagram my name on there is Bexmorts

5,
Snapchat is my last favourite app. I just find this can be a fun way of messaging and sharing photos with your friends. I get so many random funny Snapchats from my friends which makes me laugh during my day.

I hope you enjoyed todays blog post.

Blackberry Chutney


So after all my Blackberry picking I was starting to run out of things to make with them I froze a batch and then found this recipe in one of my Kilner Jars. So I made some Blackberry Chutney. It was so easy to make so thought I would share this with you.

Ingredients I needed
1tbsp Olive Oil
1 Red Onion, finely chopped
3cm Ginger, finely chopped
2 Large red chillies, finely chopped
1 Lb of Blackberries
45g Caster Sugar
30ml red wine vinegar

Step1
Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the onion, chillies and ginger. Don't forget to peel the ginger, I didn't know I had to do this. Oops
So fry that for about 5 minutes until everything has softened.
 

 Step 2
Add the Blackberries and cook for a further 5 minutes while stirring during this time.
Step 3
Add the sugar and vinegar and mix this all in together.
Step 4
Bring to the boil and the simmer for about 20-25 minutes until the vinegar has evaporated.
Step 5
While the mixture is still hot spoon into sterilised jars and seal. I brought my Kilner Jars from Wilkinsons for only 0.75p.
 
This would make fantastic Christmas presents. I have yet to decorate my jars with labels and some cloth over the top to make this look more Christmassy.
 
Let me know if you give this a go and how it turns out.

Tea Bag Blog

Tea I love to Drink

I love drinking tea. Here are photos of the tea I love to drink.
 
My morning tea is this Twinings English Breakfast. I have this every morning at work and I cant start my day without this. Tea wakes me up and makes me feel human again.
 
 
During my day at work I drink loads of English Breakfast tea but when I fancy a change or sometimes when I get home from work I like a Green Tea. I have Green Tea with Honey and also Green Tea Tropical, Green Tea is healthy and good to help detox your body.
So this is my night time tea as its a Soothing and Calming tea. It smells gorgeous and the taste is so good. It contains Camomile, Honey and Vanilla. This helps me to sleep. zzzzzzzzz
 
Hope you enjoyed my Blog. Tell me your favourite teas and I may give them a try.

Primark and Shopping Haul

Shopping Haul

Hello and hope you're all enjoying your weekend.
Yesterday (Saturday) I went shopping in Bristol with my two friends we had a really nice girly day. We went shopping and then for lunch at Frankie and Bennys.

So here is my Haul on what I brought while shopping.

 
So the first shop I purchased stuff from was Boots. I got the Garnier Ultimate Blends Sleek Perfector Oil. I have heard this is really good for dry ends and my hair is like that at the moment so cant wait to try this out. This cost me £6.65 as it was on offer. Usual price £9.99.
I just loved the look of this hand wash Carex Complete STRAWBERRY LACES. How fun does that sound and it only cost me £1.00.
 
 

Then I went to LUSH which is in all my shopping trips. I always try to pick different things each time I go. This time I have gone for Space Girl Bomb for £2.35 and Granny Takes a Dip Bath Bomb for £3.35. So cheap for a great little bath treat.
 
 
So then we went to Primark which is huge in Bristol 4 floors. I had to try and limit myself in this shop as could easily buy and spend so much.
Another hair product I brought to try out for my dry hair is this Argan Oil hair mask, this cost me £2.00.
Then my friend told me that Primark false nails are really good and last ages. They have so many pretty designs I picked a light purple colour with a silver pattern on then. Cant wait to try these for one of my next nights out. Cost a bargain price of £1.00
I got this cute purse for £2.00 cream with black spots on. I will use this when I go on nights out and I don't want to take all my cards out with me.
 
 
I got this cute little black pump shoes for only £6.00 these I brought for work as I am not quite ready to start wearing boots yet. Also black goes with everything so always a safe option.
 
 
 
I needed some new Gym socks so picked up some of these for £2.00 for 3 pairs.
I also brought some more of these Super Cosy tights which are so nice to wear and cost me £3.50. I think these will be one of my favourites this autumn/winter.
 
 
I got some cheap leggings at only £3.00 and they feel really good quality so hopefully these will last me a while. Leggings are my favourite thing to wear when its cold out.
Then I got some more of these Skinny Black Trousers. They feel so soft and fit really nice. They only cost £10.00. They do these in lots of different colours I brought the wine colour last time I went and wanted the black ones for work and because like I said before black goes with everything.
 
My last purchase was some of the Primark velvet coat hangers as I am trying to re-organise my wardrobe and I now have 3 packs of these. They costs £4.00 for 10 hangers.
 
I love shopping at the moment and cant wait to go again already.
 
Hope you enjoyed todays post.
