In This Week (still on hiatus)



1. Pizza and XFactor. 2. Nomming on a Ben & Jerry's flavour that isn't cookie dough. 3. Work clothes purchases. 4. Katy Perry costume (but not as good as my own home made one).


I'm still technically on hiatus as I don't move into my new flat until exactly a week today but I thought I would still put out a post just so you know what I've been up to outside of work in my first 9-5 week. I was staying in a B&B quite close to my work but moved to my old favourite Glasgow budget hotel just yesterday that is further away but has unlimited Wifi and where all Freeview channels work! hah! I'm probably going to regret this decision come the commute tomorrow though, but at least I can watch the start of the new Vampire Diaries series tomorrow. Which I can hardly contain my excitement for!

I'm also getting really excited for Halloween. I have no definite plans yet but have two leads; either way I'm currently the maximum bidder on eBay for a costume right now. I treat fancy dress the same way brides-to-be treat their wedding dress (or teenage girls treat their prom dress) in that I don't like to reveal what I've chosen beforehand and also only wear it once! I take Halloween extra seriously. It's my favourite holiday alongside Eurovision - where I also get to dress up. :)

FYI - the Katy Pery dress isn't my costume - I took a photo because I felt my own DIY costume from my 21st was genuinely more like the dress in the video. /end arrogance.

In This Week & Hiatus


1. Mushroom risotto. 2. Rosemary Risotto. 3. Stir fry. 4. Savoury cheesecake. 5. Cocoa pasta and cream cheese. 6. Spam comments

A In this Week post filled with food? Never! Okay, so my week hasn't been all the filled with much, so I had loads of time in the kitchen (even though I always seem to spend a lot of time there anyway...). Most of these dishes are some of my 'regulars' (which only really nit-picky readers will see, I really should do a post on that). 

Anyway, if this post seems rambly and rushed it's because it is. On Thursday I discovered that my new boss would like me down in Glasgow Monday, and not when my flat is ready. So he is paying for me to live in a B&B for the next fortnight. So this means bye bye blogging for a bit. I move into my new flat on the 21st so everything might move forward then (but it might not) but I am no doubt going to be all over the place for ages. So apologies. 

I have so many more followers now since my graduation as I've been putting in more effort to blogging during my unemployed days. And I am so so grateful for all these new followers, so sorry if you only followed me a few posts ago to see this haha. I love blogging and will return as soon as I move in, sort my new flat, get internet and get into a routine alongside my full-time job. Which could take a while; I might even be twenty-two by then. ;) 

Lovers you!

Review: Lush Love Lettuce Face Mask




I bought this late August with five empty Lush pots that I had built up (if you're not a Lush fanatic - five empty Lush pots = free facemask!). I had already tried Cosmetic Warrior and Cupcake but before declaring the latter my favourite face mask of all time I wanted to try the entire range, just to make sure. My skin is really bad and I want to make sure I never miss out on a brilliant product. I picked this up believing that it was the final facemask of the collection suited for oily skin but have since realise that Catastrophe Cosmetic would also suit, so there is one more to try before deciding on my fav. 

First off, like a lot of fresh toiletries, it looks a little disgusting. It's green and has exfoliants in it and whilst it doesn't have a strong scent, lettuce hardly drums up connotations of luxury. So yes, the appearance put me off a bit. But if it does the job then it shouldn't matter if it is green and lumpy. 

Application wise I found that a thin layer would dry more easily than a thick layer. If you want to wait for a really thick layer to dry upon your skin then you'll be there are while. So if you do purchase it - then a thin layer works better. 

Immediately after using this mask my skin did feel refreshed and really clean. And also soft. So it was good if I was heading somewhere special the next day. Or would make a good mask to pamper myself with before going out (I learnt, on the contrary, years ago that a mask will bring dirt to the surface so don't do it the night of a big date - this mask felt different). 

However, overall I didn't notice any long term improvements to my skin. I still got new spots and my blackheads didn't seem to get smaller. I have really stubborn skin that would still be more suited to a fourteen year old so I'm sometimes not the best person to review products from the 'average' person perspective but if you're like me and have oily skin then I'm not going to thoroughly recommend this product. I know that Hayley of Water Painted Dreams loves the stuff so it obviously works for some people, but for my spotty skin it's looking like Cupcake it still the magical product that kept the spots at bay! I imagine if you have normal skin that you still want to pamper each week then this might well just be the mask for you!

I also want to apologise for all my product reviews recently being very 'not good for oily skin but could still be good for other skin types'. It's just my honest opinion for a lot of the products I've been trying recently. Hopefully I'll find a product to rave about soon!

How I Looked: Primark Interview Outfit



Playsuit: Primark
Tights: H&M
Shoes: Primark (old)
Nails: Zoya

As said recently I landed myself my first graduate job and for anyone wondering this is the outfit I wore to said interview. I'm not really a plain black pencil skirt and white shirt type of gal (what fashion blogger is?) so I decided to really rack through the shops to see what I could find. I already had my outfit from my other interview but decided to pick up something a bit plainer because my previous interview had been for a creative media agency and this one was for a company doing in-house marketing who didn't comes across as so quirky. So I matched my outfit to suit. 

This time I also went for thicker tights as the lengths of the playsuit is a bit risky for an interview or office. I think New Look are good for sheer tights but then H&M are best for thick winter tights that are practically leggings. Neither brand has been bad for ladders or ripping in my experience. 

The shoes are the same as the last interview though and these generally are my go-to smart shoes though they were bought pre-vegetarian days so are leather and I'm looking for some new smart got-to shoes if anyone has any ideas?
