Thursday Night is Halloween Bingo Night!

Now traditionally Thursday the 31st October is Halloween and this year is no different - the calendar hasn't changed.
But for me, and at 21 I've still never been trick or treating, it's going to be a much quieter affair. I'm currently on the bus AGAIN I know! On my way to work in a covered up Halloween costume due to it ring fancy dress. I've decided to go low key with a black top and skirt with brown pointy boots with neon pink striped Halloween type tights hiding underneath. Simply painted my nails black last night and all I need to do when I et to work is shove on a wig, hat and cloak and put on a bit of extra makeup - lots of eye liner and red lipstick I'm thinking! 
After work, and some vigourous makeup removal I am hopping back on the bus yo return home to go out with the girls and playing bingo. Fingers crossed I win something as it could come in quite handy now. 👏
I am then intending on returning home and having some food - if we've not had the tradit…

Avon Reps and Christmas Bargains

Image
Winter has most definitely struck at work now, we are down to the loyal locals to keep us open and playing games. One of these however, just happens to be an Avon Rep and occasionally brings in any cheap stock that she's got hanging around. 
The other day was one of these and I managed to pick up a couple of absolute bargains... A bag of assorted makeup for £1 and 2 perfumes for £2 each. Now just wait till you see what I found when I got home and opened it all! 
1. Assorted bag of makeup;  Including; - Color Trend 'Mint Chocolate' eye shadow I cannot find this product on the Avon website anymore though it is available from eBay and Amazon in different shades. I have used some of the other shades and it really does go onto the eye lid really well, easily smudging and creating that lovely 'mint chocolate look'
- Color Trend Kiss 'n' Go Lipstick in 'Sequin' This product is still available from the Avon website but only in different shades in the new li…

Not my week - or two

Image
So hey there to you lovely people (if you're there) as you may or may not know I am on the constant job search and things were starting to look up, with a couple of interviews planned.
Well first off I have not progressed any further unfortunately, despite getting through to the final interview stage for one of the jobs I was unsuccessful so this has taken me back to that 'endless searching' stage. The job search apps are most definitely the most used on my phone at the moment. 
And talking of my phone this is now pretty much my only bit of available technology. In the last week my laptop has officially died, and now has a maximum life time of 7 minutes before freezing and refusing to do anything!
A little while was spent trekking PC world with the fella but rather unproductively (N)  however I still had a phone and wifi so said the search could wait a few days - maybe stretch to a week.
However, lets now rewind to yesterday afternoon, we were sat aimlessly watching TV on the …

Autumn and Bloglovin' Clearout

Spring Cleaning...

Now this never happened to me and instead it seems that I am having an Autumn clear out - and what better time? Changing the wardrobes and shoe closets from summer to winter, refinding the hats, scarves and gloves that have been cleverly filed away.

The other day I came home from a week at work - hopefully this will be changing soon! *fingers crossed* and after having a day out watching a good old game of hockey I made myself some tea - pork roast no less, I'm learning slowly - and decided that my living room needed a change around. Walking back in yesterday it instantly felt so much bigger, more spacious and somehow warmer. I have also now got some curtains in my 'dining room' after living in the flat for 2 years now - shameful I know! I will post some photos on these once I am settled and have my camera and phone running properly.

Also on the plan for the near future is a new bathroom, we have had a bit of an issue with damp so a couple of weekends ago…

Because it's a New Month.....

Image
What's happened to the year already?!?!?! Seems only days ago that we were sunning it out in the summer and now the tides have turned and were looking into the windows of October and the looming winter.
I have to say though, part of me can't wait for getting wrapped up in layers and putting on the hat and scarf - it calls for nights in and cuddles on the sofa right....? So long as the snow doesn't come too soon..
But anyway onto the topic of this post, because it's a new month and a new season at that I've decided to do a few things that I've wanted to do for a while but never got around to.
1. I'm going to learn to knit - today brings the start of this new hobby, it's one of them things that I've always wanted to do but never picked up the needles and got stuck in as it goes. Hopefully there will be some little creations coming up on here soon that I can share with you - that's if it turns out well...


2. I am going to get that job that I've…
