Ok so new update! I'm on Twitter - and as you can see there is a new section to my profile. To the right is a 'Twitter' updates section where you can clearly see all of my latest twitters. To keep you posted with what I'm up to etc :)

I went shopping to Liverpool yesterday. With Gary being away for most of the weekend in Manchester, I decided to go out with my Mum and make a proper girly weekend of it. Now while I usually come away with bags and bags of shopping, I have to say that I really didn't find that much in terms of clothes that I'd want to actually buy let alone wear.

For example, a lot of the fashions at the moment I think are pretty hideous. PVC leggings...harem pants...'modern' jumpsuits (admittedly that last one does look a lot different to their 80's equivalent and I've seen some nice'ish ones). But a lot of it is just plain...urgh.

For example yesterday in Liverpool town centre I saw a girl walking around with just tights on and high heels?! You could see her arse through them, where was her skirt or trousers? I felt like saying you've only put half your clothes on. I hope that trend of wearing your undies over tights doesn't catch on - people like Lady Gaga may be able to get away with it because they're mad as a hatter but ordinary folk on the street should not do that sort of thing. IT LOOKS FOOLISH. &highly unclassy.

Anyhow, so me and my Mum literally went into all the clothes shops in Liverpool One and in total I figured we must've spent about 8 hours shopping! (I knew this anyway as my feet started to really hurt by 3 o'clock).

I didn't come away with that much, but I did get this little lot:

MAC cosmetics > Hello Kitty Tippy blusher, pink shadestick, prep and prime spf50 for the face and primer for the eyes.
The flower hair clip and heart shaped compact are from Accessorize


Pretty new black pumps with pink ribbons on! from M&S

I also bought a lot more MAC make-up on ebay yesterday evening, so kinda been spoiling myself a little. &I won a Betty Boop vanity case on there which I will no doubt show in a pic at some point :)

With it being my Mum's birthday next week (she's the big 6-0) I tried to find her something she'd really like. She said she was after a collection from L'Occitane but to try and get it off of QVC (which she's obsessed with). Either that or a ring from the same place. So I'm figuring it might be best to sort that out sometime during the week when I know for sure.

Other than that, we went for lunch at Yums which was a very nice chinese all you can eat buffet, which we enjoyed. I go there with Gary often as you can eat for pretty cheap, only about £5.99 per person.

In the evening we used some Lush products. I managed to pick up a face pack for 2 people from Lush - was only £10 and they gave you an 'Ultra bland' cleanser for your skin which was like a goopy face mask to remove impurities. This was then washed off using a linen towel which came as part of the pack, which you dipped in a bowl of hot water mixed with a toner tab - which is full of vitamins E and C. So that was very cleansing. We followed this with using a low fat moisturiser for the skin, we had different ones each but it was supposed to do the same trick - of moisturising the skin and prep it up for the face mask - which I had picked out especially.

I chose a face mask which was supposed to be very anti-oxidising, nourishing and refreshing for the skin. I can't remember the name of it now, but I know that I had to stick it in the fridge as soon as I got home from Liverpool. When you put it on the face you could smell the blueberries in it - and I even had a taste of it and it was pretty nice actually, haha. Like a very sweet, fruity yoghurt. The idea is you leave the face mask on for around 20 minutes then take off and you will be left with incredibly soft and beautiful skin afterwards.

I definitely noticed a difference after all of those treatments, my skin is still feeling really nice and smooth this morning, so it worked a treat :)

I managed to watch 'The Notorious Bettie Page' yesterday evening as well. It's a brilliant little film, just a biography of one of the most iconic 50's glamour models, but the actress who plays her is highly convincing. She lead a pretty interesting life by the looks of it, though in the end gave up the modelling to follow a Christian way of life. She never let anyone see her in later years once she'd lost her youthful looks because she believed that it would ruin the image people have of her. I can understand that in a way. She was a model who had a lot of success, in a little known manner, but in the end she just wanted to be left alone as she was older.

I never knew that she died in December last year. So only the other month. She was 85 and suffered a heart attack. Can't believe I only found that out 3 months later! :(

Anyways, that was Saturday in a nutshell.

Friday - I got paid. My manager told me I was doing a good job, woo! and I went out in the evening to Runcorn with my good friend Natasha. We went Wetherspoons and then the pub that she works at for a drink or two. It was really nice, I hadn't seen her in ages, so it was good to have a catch up :) though some guy there said I looked like an emo, lol. Which couldn't be further from the truth.

The taxi back to Widnes and home wasn't too nice - easily spent about £12 on that alone! ahah. Good times.

Today which is Sunday, I don't know what's happening.

All I know is that I want to rest as much as possible and later on see Gary when he comes home. I believe I'll be meeting him at the train station, so I'm looking forward to hearing all about Apoptygma Berzerk and his weekend in Manchester.

Bye for now.
