I thought it was about time I did another giveaway!

The prize will include a selection of mystery (but great!) goodies! One of these will be a Lush Christmas gift set and the rest will be smaller but still very cute goodies such as makeup, nail varnish, accessories etc! The prize will add up to at least £25, or more!

The closing date is the 9th of December. Here's how to enter...

Mandatory steps
For ONE entry

  • You must be a follower of this blog
  • Leave a comment below with your name and email address
  • And also list three things you would love to receive if you won! This is so that I can ensure the winner receives things they like! Try and be pretty vague about the things you like such as 'craft goodies' or 'pastel coloured nail varnish' and please list things that are realistic! I know you all want Ryan Reynolds naked underneath your Christmas tree, me included, but unfortunately this isn't possible! And if it was I certainly wouldn't be posting him off to you lot, no offence :P !

Optional steps
For a total of FIVE entries

  • Mention this giveaway on Facebook, linking back to either this post or this blog's Facebook account here (+1)
  • Mention this giveaway on Twitter, linking back to this post (+1)
  • Add this giveaway to your blog sidebar using the above image (+1)

Altogether you can have up to SIX entires into this giveaway by completing the necessary steps. Remember the prize will include a Lush Christmas gift set and loads of other cute gifts, including some that you are sure to like (hence the comment step!) and the giveaway will end on the 9th December with me picking the winner at random.

Additionally, I am aware that not everyone who views this blog and who would like to enter this giveaway has a blog of their own. Therefore sometime after Christmas I will do another giveaway that will include no extra steps other then entering by a comment. Therefore everyone - whether they have a blog or not - has as much chance as everyone else.

Good luck!!!

Dear Santa,
It's that time of year again! I've been a very good girl this year, as you know. I've also had a bit of a tough time over the last few months but I'm finally feeling much better - surely this means I deserve some extra special presents? I'll also be very giving to my loved ones this Christmas as for once I have a decent income and can afford to treat them! Thank you for all my lovely presents last year too. As always, I'll be keeping up my end of our deal, swapping mince pies for the much yummier pringles for your snack when you visit. I hope this means that as usual you will keep up your end of the deal and spoil me!
Anyway, I hope you are well so lets get to the list, shall we?

Scrubs Complete Box Set Seasons 1 - 9
(I don't even want season 9 as thats the crap one with all the new people but first of all this box set is prettier then the other one and second of all this is almost £20 cheaper then the other box set which is only seasons 1 - 8??)

I Heart Vegas by Lindsey Kelk

Very Valentino Perfume

Earring Stand from

Gift Card for the Boux Avenue website, or, better yet, for someone to just take me to one of their stores ;)

Champagne Mesh and Satin Diamante Bandeau Dress, Quiz Clothing
I know technically it's a prom dress and I have nowhere to wear it too but its just SO DAMN PRETTY! Plus I never had a prom :(

A chipboard 12 X 12 scrapbook album (so I can customize the front) that ISN'T attached by this so hard to find?!
Note - the picture above is the first thing I found on google when I searched scrapbook and is not an example of what I am after!

How I Met Your Mother Seasons 1 - 6 box set

And of course, any of the following -

  • The ability to go a whole day walking in heels without being in pain
  • Ian Somerhalder/Max Irons/Dougie Poynter/Shia LaBeouf naked underneath my Christmas tree with a large bow covering their modesty, waiting for me to unwrap them...
  • A writing job or a job at Cosmopolitan or More!. 
  • A nice fit emo/rocker boy in a band to sweep me off my feet :)
Thank you Santa, I know you never fail to let me down!

Haha I saw this on Kandee Johnson's blog and just had to do a list of my own, it's so funny! So without further ado, here is my list of 10 signs that tell you you're dating/seeing/hooking up with/in a relationship with the wrong guy...
  • ...When a guy tries to be romantic by taking you on a drive overlooking the whole of the city after a date, but when you park up it turns out to be a dogging spot
  • ..When you're hanging out with a guy and his female friend who he's 'in love with but can't be with' turns up and they disappear for an hour - leaving you - and return crying. And then you still hook up anyway. Then about 5 years later tries to snog you in full view of your boyfriend when you bump into him at a club and he insists on 'saying hello'!
  • ...When a guy doesn't buy you birthday, Christmas or anniversary presents (apart from mushrooms and yes I mean the food and not the drugs!)
  • ...When a guy spends the whole date talking about how he has dandruff and makes you watch a long-ass movie which is basically about two guys getting high - then doesn't make a move on you anyway
  • ...When a guy takes four months to ask you out on a date
  • ...When a guy would rather spend time with his friends then comfort you after your grandad has passed away
  • ...When a guy invites you out clubbing then spends the night dividing his time between kissing and dancing with you and two other girls, all out of view from each other
  • ...When a guy who's name you can't remember ends up back at yours simply because you thought it was sweet that he bought you a pizza when you dropped your original one when drunk
  • ...When a guy rings you 50+ times every day for a week and won't stop texting you
  • ...When a guy disappears off the face of the earth for about 3 months and some randomer has his phone
And yes, all of these HAVE unfortunately happened to me. I sure know how to pick them ;)

(But at least they were all experiences and I have learned/will learn from them. And in addition, at least 3/4's of the guys mentioned here were very, very hot!)

Although I never ever follow my own advice, I've been told many times before that I offer really good advice. When I set up this blog this was something I wanted to do, offering my readers advice. I also wanted to offer, alongside with other advice, specifically dating advice or features. I wasn't sure how to go about it however until now.

From here on out you can now ask me advice on absolutely anything - from style, friendship, sex, dating, relationships, crafts, music...whatever! You can ask me using the form below and you also have the option of asking anonymously which means that no one (not even me) other then you will know who asked the question. Depending on how popular the feature becomes I will either post the question and my advice to the blog as I get them, or post them all on a certain day of the week. You can also check on the website to see if I have answered your question. As well as asking for advice, feel free to post any comments or feedback relating to the blog as well :)

When I decided to begin this feature I asked a few friends to anonymously submit some of their questions so there are already a few answered questions on there anyway. I will probably also do some things like 'Question Of The Day' on the website to give you a little bit of insight about me

Top Tips For Being Single This Christmas - Tip #1

Work out how much cash you'd usually spend on another half/that you've spend on an ex in the past and put it aside. Go out and spend all the cash on yourself, buying whatever you want! Even if its a really selfish damn right dirty treat like spending £150 on underwear - go and do it. It beats being disappointed and having to pretend to like whatever silly presents blokes give anyway - be glad that you miss out on that this Christmas! For extra fun, wrap the present really pretty, add a tag that's addressed to you and sit it underneath your Christmas tree, ready to open on the day. (Or the night before, alone, if it is something like underwear :P) Better yet, why not write on the tag that it's from a really fit celebrity, how can you complain when you have that sitting underneath your tree at Christmas?!

You know when someone recommends something to you and so you go watch/see/listen whatever to it without knowing anything about it and it turns out to be amazing? Slava's Snow Show is just that. I may just be saying this partly because this amazing show is so indescribable that I cannot find the words to talk about it, but nonetheless before I continue further I must say GO AND SEE IT. Even if you don't like the sound of it from this review or you don't even read what I write, without a doubt go and see this show. Whether you're old or young, whatever you are into, you will love it. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity seeing this show.

It starts with what I'd like to say a depressed clown trying to commit suicide. Yes, you read correct - a clown trying to commit suicide - but bear with me. It isn't even sad. There's nothing sad about this show. And FYI, he doesn't commit suicide in the end! To be honest though, the show's stars aren't exactly clowns...nor are they mime's very hard to describe what they actually are. This show doesn't follow a storyline and it doesn't make sense. But if I really had to describe it I would say its a magical, inexplainable, hilarious magical show.

I can't tell you what happens within the show without ruining it but I will reveal a little bit. The show focuses immensely on the audience. Don't worry, if you're shy you won't get forced on stage or be made to stand up in front of anyone. What I simply mean is that it's very interactive with the audience and involves them a lot - from a giant 'cobweb' emerging from the stage that you will have to pass over your heads to the people behind you, to a paper snowstorm that will quite literally bury you in paper snow. Sounds weird? You bet. Fun though? Most definitely.

It's funny, heart warming and is fun for all the family - plus it will get you in the Christmassy mood. Slava's Snow Show was created and staged by Russian performance artist Slava Polunin and won the Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience. It was also nominated for the Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event.

From what I've heard, the show only comes to the UK every four years. I saw it recently for the second time and it still absolutely blew me away. The best part of the show, for me, would probably be the end when they release these gigantic multicoloured balls into the audience and everyone begins to get involved - adults, children, grandparents etc - jumping up and pushing the ball to another area of the theatre or playing with the ridiculous amount of paper snow that has gathered on the ground. But, personally, I loved how all the actors/performers just sat or stood on the stage at this point, watching the audience. It was almost heart warming to see, the performers clearly loved how happy they were making the audience and how even adults were releasing their inner child for this magical show. It really was beautiful.

Just a note, when it comes to the intermission, I would recommend not to be too long in the toliet/getting your drinks or whatever. They all come out into the audience at this stage, wandering about at first but then 10 or so of them are suddenly causing full on mischief! And I mean absolute mischief, one girl even got picked up and they ran away with her on stage! It was absolutely hilarious. The first time I saw the show one of them came up to me and hugged me then revealed a massive old granny bra from his pocket, waving it above his head as if I was the one wearing it. Then when I went recently, another one climbed over me and, well, lets say paused for a good minute with his 'downstairs area' in my face, causing absolute hilarious embarrassment on my half. And if you do get a chance to see this show, I wouldn't recommend getting seats that are in the stands or on an upper tier/floor or whatever as you will miss out on so much of the show if you do.

I hope I haven't revealed too much in this review but if you ever get the chance to see it, please do. It is one of the most amazing experiences and honestly no matter how old you are or what you like you will love it. The first time I saw this I went in as a moody teenager thinking what the hell had I let myself into, convinced I would hate it. By the end I was laughing my head off and found it completely magical and heart warming.

I'm not bonkers by the way for this mad review trying to explain it. Angelina Jolie is also a massive fan of this show so if she likes it then trust me, it's worth it!

With I'm A Celebrity back on our screens, it looks like survival of the fittest! I've never been a fan of the show but with hot bassist Dougie Poynter (from Mcfly) appearing in the jungle, I decided this might be the year I make an exception.

Also in the jungle is Mark Wright, fit-but-doesn't-he-know-it heart breaker from The Only Way is Essex. He's, quite frankly, a bit of an idiot when it comes to women but he's also very hot to look at...

So its up to you this week to again decide who should be Hottie Of The Week. I know who gets my vote (much like the debate I had on Facebook the other day about what type of guys I go for, sorry Mark but I pick fit, quirky bassists with *that* indie/emo boy look over traditionally good looking men any day!) but who do you think is fittest? Will you go for Dougie, the sweet but passionate bassist with his gorgeous sleeve tattoo? Or Mark - the one who treats women not very well but you can't help but fancy anyway with that godlike body?

Dougie Poynter

Mark Wright

You can vote either below in this post or in the sidebar, and the poll will close next Monday! :)
