Life Update!

I realised that I haven't done a life update since I moved to Nottingham at the end of February. I can't believe how quickly that time has gone, or how much my life has changed since the last update! It's so lovely to have a job that I enjoy, and to have the income to get out and enjoy my weekends!

Soap and Glory Sexy Motherpucker Matte Lip

My first forray into the Soap and Glory Sexy Motherpucker products was the gloss sticks in the black tube. I was obsessed with Nudist when I had it and I ran all the way through it. The packaging design was like much of the S&G stuff but it was a bit flimsy and by the time I finished it there was absolutely nothing left on the tube as all the writing had rubbed away, but I loved it all the same.

I was excited when I heard that the gloss sticks had had a redesign, but the matte lip lover in me went crazy when I saw the new Matte-Lips on Sophie's Snapchat! Then it had a little heart attack when it saw the teeny pricetag of £3.50 in Boots. Surely it had to be too good to be true?

I've become obsessed...

After visiting Nottingham for two years and living here for four months, we thought it about time I went up to Sherwood Forest to see the Major Oak - it is a big part of Nottinghamshire heritage after all. If you don't know - it's where Robin Hood and his band of merry men supposedly slept according to folklore. It's in Sherwood Forest a little outside Nottingham itself near a town called Edwinstowe, should you ever want to visit. It's a pretty hefty tree. I mean, it's branches are held up by scaffolding!

Anyone that knows Ali and I know that we love going to zoos and aquariums, and our most recent trip was to Twycross Zoo armed with Ali's DSLR. We were able to walk around in the lemur enclosure and get really close to the absolutely gorgeous little things. (Read on for cute animal photos!)

Get the perfect rose gold nails with Maybelline!

I'm a cliche and a sucker for anything rose gold, so when I saw this Maybelline SuperStay 7 Days nail polish on a lunch trip it was straight in my basket without thinking twice. The colour is named Golden Brown but is actually very pink toned and the best rose gold coloured polish I've come across. It's a fantastic shade, which matches my lovely new rose gold iPhone exactly - the happiest accident ever to happen.
