Beauty | Rimmel Wonder'Full Mascara With Argan Oil ♥

Rimmel Wonderfull Mascara With Argan Oil - Superdrug - £7.99 

I'll be honest I've really not enjoyed using this mascara at all but because it cost me £7.99 I wasn't about to throw it away or discard it in my ever growing make up collection.
I wouldn't say I hated it either, its just not one of my favourite mascara's - I'm a big fan of  Rimmel's "Scandal Eyes" mascara because it promises big fluttery eyelashes and it delivers and... its usually always my go to product - however when this new mascara came out I had to try it right.

Its Argan Oil formula is supposed to feel lightweight and soft on your lashes, that it does... but I think that is the problem, no matter how much of it I apply it doesn't really seem to do anything for my lashes - no"wonderfull volume" as promised, I barely felt like I was wearing any mascara.
Despite the negatives I will say - if you like your mascara barely there - then this one is for you... and the clump free brush is perfect because you do get an even application.
But... I'm afraid Rimmel I won't be buying this again, you didn't give me "wonderfull lashes" this time.

Have you tried this mascara??
What did you think of it??

Life | Luna - 2 Months On..... ♥

Doesn't she look cute - the Christmas tree was shortly on the floor after this photo was taken twice.....
This little one is almost 5 months old and she is still a little devil, I actually feel like I have a child at times, I don't have children so I guess I don't know entirely but I have a feeling looking after a kitten is somewhat like having a child - in some aspects.
She likes to play fetch - we have no idea why, its something she's done since we got her at 8 weeks, we'd throw her toy(s) and she would just bring them back - now she'll bring anything back, including my gloves (from out my hand bag).

She's now drinking from the bath tap - we have someone to blame for that - seems she looks up to Jimjam a bit to much and wants to be just like him.
 Trips to the toilet are a nightmare especially if she can't come in, she will cry till you eventually let her in, I sometimes question my sanity when I'm sharing the bathroom constantly with two cats, even more so when I'm having a shower and there is a kitten sat on the edge of that bath.
She's still not sleeping with us in the bedroom yet because she's not learnt the concept of bedtime like Jimajm has but she will eventually (I hope) - shes a bit of a night owl at the moment and  think Jimjam cherishes that alone time at night and the peace.


Luna's also a bit of a snugglebum too, you can't pick her up and expect to cuddle her, she has to come to you for attention and decide when and where she wants to lie, most of the time its usually when your reading a magazine or I'm blogging, they seem to be the perfect opportunities to fall asleep in my lap.
Also falling asleep on the middle of the rug is comfy too, even though she has a perfectly comfy bed on the sofa....
She's eating kitten food but she much prefers jimjams and jimjam prefers hers - why do cats do this??
and she literally wants to eat everything you eat, including my cereal first in the morning, its not fun prising a kitten off your waist with a brew in one hand a cereal bowl in the other - claws are sharp.
She may be a little terror sometimes - like the time she managed to tip the entire contents of her litter tray off the side - twice - or the 100 times we've had to replace the loo roll because she thinks she's an andrex puppy and toilet roll is fun to unravel - but.... I love her and her own little personality and I could watch the pair of them causing havoc all day, because you know what cats may just be the best pets ever....

Have you got any funny kitten stories or do you have a terror just like Luna??

My cake pictured above is five inches in size and there are enough portions for 3 - 4 of you, I shared mine with my hubby - it didn't last long in our flat.
Each cake comes packaged up inside a pretty tin that has tiny holes in so it stays fresh.
I picked the sponge cake which was lovely and moist and had a fine layer of white icing on top.
I was really impressed with the quality, taste, size and the fact that it actually did fit through my letter box - it came packaged safely in a small cardboard box too, so you don't have to worry about it getting squashed or damaged in the post.

12 Of My Favourite One Tree Hill Scenes ♥

Today's Sunday post is me reminiscing about my all time favourite TV show, and if you have visited this post (high five, it means you love One Tree Hill too.)
Like me I hope this post makes you smile, maybe even make you want to watch these famous episodes all over again.
One Tree Hill taught me a lot growing up throughout its nine seasons, and to this day I still absolutely love it, I desperately (still do) always wanted to be as beautiful as Brooke Davis, have a love like Lucas and Peyton's (I do), and a family as beautiful as Nathan and Hayley's (one day) 
So here we go - my 12 favourite One Tree Hill scenes (Because I couldn't pick 10)

1. This scene with Lucas and Petyon is and will always be my favourite scene ever from One Tree Hill when Lucas says to Peyton "When all my dreams come true, the one I want next to me, its you.... its you peyton" I blubbed a bucket of tears during that scene, it was a bit of an emotional roller coaster that episode too - you can relive that scene here - link.

2. Nathan and Hayley's first tutoring session, when Nathan gives Hayley that bracelet and say "Don't say I never gave you anything" it was the start of true love between these two and this scene never fails to make me smile - you can relive this scene on Youtube here - Link.

3. When Nathan re proposes to Hayley in Season 3 after after their difficulties in Season 2 - I preferred this proposal second time round.
You can relive their proposal here - link.

4. Nathan & Hayley get married for the second time round in front of their family and friends in Season 3 and its just as beautiful as the first time they got married.
You can relive their wedding second time round here - link.

5. I was always routing for Brooke to find true love and when Julian turned up in season 6, I knew it was going to be happily ever after for Brook finally, this scene is where she tells him she loves him and shes ready to let him in "Believe that dreams come true everyday, because they do."
You can relive that scene here - link.

6. You also can not forget Brooke & Julian's romantic proposal in season 7.
You can relive their proposal here - link.

7. And they finally got married in Season 8 and Brooke has her happily ever after (I love the flashbacks in this scene to when they first met too) - how beautiful did Brooke look in her wedding dress.
You can relive Brooke and Julians wedding here - link.

8. After all the will they won't they's thoughout the series with Lucas and Peyton, they finally get together and Lucas proposes properly for the second time at "their" spot.
You can relive that scene here - link.

9. And their wedding was so beautiful too - I probably waited for this scene from the start of the show too.
You can relive Lucas and Peytons wedding here - link.

10. When Brooke tells Julian she is pregnant - we see the heartache Brooke goes through because she wants a family of her own and she's told she can't - this is such an emotional but happy scene.
You can relive that scene here - link.

11. When Hayley & Nathan Become parents for the first time second time they are perfection and the most amazing parents that I aspire to be like one day.
Brooke finally has twin boy's after not being able to conceive and adoption fails and Lucas and Peyton start a family these four scenes are some of my favourites too.

 12. Lastly who can forget the ending of the final season of One tree Hill - sob - I thought they ended this series perfectly.

You may notice I didn't put any Clay or Quinn scenes in this post, it was nothing personal against the show, I loved them too - It was just hard picking just 12 scenes.

What is your favourite One Tree Hill Scene??

What I Wore | Autumn Friday's ♥

| *Scarf - Bella Cosa Boutique - Link |

I just love wearing skinny jeans, I just feel much more comfortable in them especially in Autumn/Winter when I can wear them with boots and warm woolly jumpers or dress them up with cami tops and my faux leather jacket. I know its started to get a little bit more chilly now but I've not been ready for a big coat just yet.
You will see in my previous post I got an exciting package in the post from Bella Cosa Boutique, one of the surprises in that package was this beaut of a scarf. 
About 2 years ago I bought my first scarf and since I haven't been able to stop buying them and this one is an exception, I love the colours and the pattern.
It may be a little bright for some but all year round I like to embrace a bit of colour,
I do love wearing my Autumn shades but some days when its dark and gloomy I just can't really help myself.
Scarves are perfect for dressing up plain tops and jumpers and they are not as thick as woolly winter scarves, unless its absolutely freezing - which makes them an all year round essential.
I've worn mine how I would normally wear my scarf, in two ways, long down at either side or I like to tie it up in a knot at the neck if its a little bit chillier, there is so many ways you can wear them with your everyday outfits.
My boots that I am wearing are also my favorites at the minute too, at a fab £15.00 they go with everything I own, making them the perfect piece of footwear this A/W.

You can also get 10% off at Bella Cosa Boutique  by entering SMALL10 in at the check out.

Christmas With Bella Cosa Boutique ♥

If there is anything I love then its surprise's and when this arrived from the postie I was so excited.
This beautiful package arrived from Bella Cosa Boutique as an early "Christmas Present" and all the little details were so cute I had to take some photos before I excitedly tore everything open and show you all effort that had been put into this gift box....

Talk about spoiling me, a little yummy pick n mix was also included in the pink and white striped bag (you know me well girls)
