One Tree Hill Season 9 "Sob" ♥

So I've been doing some digging on OTH and been trying to find out whats going to be happening or what could be happening,
As most of you know its going to be the season finale with just 13 episodes, and it begins airing on January 11th "I'll be away :'(" next year,
The cast and crew wrapped up there filming 16th November this month, and a few cast members of the show all tweeted unique pictures, its getting me all upset just looking at them :'(

Brookes Mum in the show Daphne tweeted a picture of her and Brooke saying "I love you so much, Victoria and Brooke made it work"

& Sophia Bush tweeted her fans, these very sad photo's:

Brooke & Jamie

With Gavin Degraw "The singer of I don't wanna be"

There were pictures from Quinn James & Clay Evans

Mouth & Millicent 

& Chase Adams tweeted this really sad tweet:

&& you can't forget the all important Hayley James, Nathan, Lydia, Jamie Scott
I also found out Bethany (Hayley James has a personal blog) which you can follow on blogger HERE

This picture was retweeted by James Lafferty (Nathan Scott) a fan had made it as a send off to the OTH couple.

There has been spoilers to the show such as Gavin Degraw who will be performing in the last episode of the season finale, and Peyton Sawyer (Hilarie Burton) will NOT be returning to the last season, (I think that's rather sad and tbh it would of really made the season that much more special)

There have been leaks of  Season 9
Watch at own risk...

The final season of ONE TREE HILL premieres Wednesday, January 11 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET). In its final 13 episodes, how will Brooke and Julian juggle parenthood and their very young careers? With Nathan traveling more as an agent, how will Haleys life change with a second child, an increasingly independent Jamie, and a busy caf e to run? Is a wedding in store for Quinn and Clay, or for Mouth and Millicent? And what s to become of Alex and Chase and their burgeoning romance? The series stars Sophia Bush as Brooke Davis, Bethany Joy Galeotti as Haley James Scott, James Lafferty as Nathan Scott, Robert Buckley as Clay Evans, Austin Nichols as Julian Baker, Shantel VanSanten as Quinn James and Jackson Brundage as Jamie Scott. ONE TREE HILL was created by Mark Schwahn and is executive produced by Schwahn, Joe Davola, Greg Prange, Mike Tollin and Brian Robbins. The series is produced by Mastermind Laboratories and Tollin/Robbins Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

There are also rumors speculating that a major character is going to be killed off in an hour long episode that will impact everyone in OTH, now I'm really hoping that its neither Hayley or Nathan, or Brooke and Julian, so this just shows i will be blubbing my eyes out to this i know it!

& of course we have the return of Chad Micheal Murray to look forward to, lets hope its not him who gets killed either!!

Hope you've enjoyed reading a few spoilers, as you already know the pictures I've used are not mine and most of this digging has been done on which you should check daily as its the first place for OTH news!!

MAU Academy Haul & FOTD ♥

Today I went to Superdrug to treat myself to some new make up bits form MAU since I've heard such great things from you girlie's,
This is my FOTD (face of the day) for those who don't know what that means,

Products used:

Foundation: M.A.C
Blusher: Rimmel
Powder: Rimmel
Eyeshadow: MAU Shade 18 Matt
Eyeliner: MUA Eyeliner Pencil
Mascara: MAU Mascara
Lipstick: MAU Shade 5

My every day make up is pretty much something like this, I don't always use eye shadows,
Back onto MAU, these are the products below i purchased,

 All £1 each, can you believe that,
I'm always a little cautious of the price of products as it normally means its to good to be true and its cheap quality,
I was overall impressed with MAU Products,

The Eyeshadow in "MATT" was great quality and went on really easily and you can build your colour up as much as you want.
This gets a 9/10

What I thought was a fab idea was they eyeliner pencil i bought, it had a sharpener in the lid, how handy is that, i always misplace my sharpener and this lid means I've always got one one hand.
I've never seen that before on a product...
Have you??
10/10 for me and it last ages....

 The lipstick colour wasn't as vibrant as i thought it would be, so i think I'd get a darker colour next time, it does give a nice little shimmer to the lips but does look more like I've put lipgloss on.
But for the £1.00 i can't really complain,
It actually reminded me of the Nivea Pearl Lipbalm.
This Gets a 7/10 for me

The last two products I purchased were,
The MAU lipgloss in Shade 5 
This smells so yummy, good enough to eat,
Its a clear pink colour and it does last for quiet a while, 
its a good consistency and a little goes along way.

This one gets a 8/10

Finally the Mascara,
This is just your average brush so i wouldn't be expecting extravagant lashes,
It creates more of a natural look which is perfect for during the day,
The brush is slim and it does coat every eyelash perfectly,
and it dries quickly,
No panda eyes as of yet
This was alot better than i thought it would be :)

So for that reason it gets a 9/10

I was quite impressed with these products first time around, and i will definitely be purchasing more of these items in the future for my key make up items,
The empty shelves in Superdrug prove that MAU sells pretty well.

Who else has tried MAU??
Who loves it or hates it?
Any items you'd recommend on a budget?

Day 24: A Celebrity Whose Personality Is Irresistible ♥

*One Tree Hill Season 8 spoilers if your not up to date, don't READ!!

Sofia Bush (Brooke Davis)

I love this girl so much, she's absolutely gorgeous &
I always really want to dye my hair back to brunette every time I see her...

Anyone watching One Tree Hill in UK will be up to date and it was the season final finale of season 8 yesterday and Brooke had her babies, I love that episode, I'm way to involved in the storyline,
Serious OTH fans will know Brooke really wanted babies but couldn't have them, and you find out towards the end of the season that she's expecting twins,
I actually cried with happiness as I'm that much of a loser and all!
But this girl has the personality i wish a few of my friends had!

My Vintage Purchases for £4 ♥

As a few of you may know I head into my local town center about twice a month as we have about 10 charity shops now, two new one's have opened and believe me you do find some of the nicest things in there, its just pure luck if its in your size.
I always think a lot of it is when people buy things in the wrong size and then get rid of them, i do this all the time.
I only tend to buy things that have never been worn or are in nearly new condition.
This is what i picked up yesterday:

I got this mustard yellow jumper (one of my favourite colours) for £2 its from GEORGE (Asda's Clothing Line) it was a size 14 so its a few sizes to big but i like my looses baggy jumpers, clearly brand new and a bargain.

Sorry for looking so moody!lol!

My next bargain was this peachy cropped jumper, its so cute and girly, I love the colour, this was from Primark, £1.99 also brand new :)

I decided to put my hair up in a bun today, I used one of them doughnut rings so it was big and poofy, I don't know what i think about the look though, i couldn't help feeling older than i actually was lol!
What do you think?
Does it suit me or am I being paranoid?lol!

Friday Night Baking ♥

Its been that day of the week again where I've been making yummy treats again for myself, my dad and my fiance,
Today I've made this amazing chocolate fudge cake,
Trust me, it really does taste as good as it looks,
I was actually drooling when I could smell it cooking,

But I've got a confession to make, my hard work actually came from  a box,

 Betty Crocker, do thee most amazing cake mixes, and they look like how they do on the box :)
You can pick them up from any supermarket for about £2.00 each,
All you do is add water, eggs and vegetable oil, and even better i got 12 pieces out of it!

Does Anyone else use these mixtures??
