Home sweet home


Once again it is the holidays and we are both back home for 5 weeks (!) for Easter trying to sort out our plans for next term. Both Danni and I have exams but the university hasn't yet told us when they will be. As you might have guessed, this makes revision more difficult to organise. Ah well, I will just have to adjust my colour coding on the revision timetable I am yet to make... OOPS. I also have to write a Roman economy essay which I am NOT looking forward too...ah I wish I was more organised! However, to help me in my constant struggle to make plans (and then stick to them) I have bought a beautiful diary from Paperchase that has little owls on
 Hopefully this will inspire me to become as organised as Danni :) It is so nice to be home again, I always forget how pretty it is, especially in comparison to Coventry!
My sister has a German exchange student staying with us at the moment so our house is pretty much full to the brim with people at the moment, especially with me home :) On Saturday, I went to the outlet store in Swindon with Mum, Dad, Isobel and Alistair and had a really nice day out. I bought a pack of 3 pairs of grey tights from Marks & Spencers that were 99p from £8 but I got them for 49p as Mum also got some tights and they were buy one get one half price... I was literally like YES! :) I also treated myself to some Mac make-up- a beautiful pink blush called 'Summer Rose' (which has a beautiful rose embossed on the blusher) and an eyeshadow suite in 'Counterparts' - a lovely gold and green duo that will be perfect for sultry summer make-up. (I will put swatches up A.S.A.P) 
I wore the blusher on Sunday, when I met up with Mark, Pete, Cindy and Dan (who you may remember from New Year's Eve) at the local pub in my village. It was lovely to see them all as it was the first time I had seen them since Easter, and much hilarity ensued. I also got my very late birthday present off Pete, but it was SO worth the wait...
A copy of 'Blogging for Dummies' and a DVD I have been wanting for ages. Thank you Pete for such a thoughtful and useful present! I have already been avidly reading the book which is full of useful tips that Danni and I will try to use on here :) Although I would have liked to have seen everyone for longer, it was amazing to catch up and to see each other face-to-face. Thank you to everyone for making the effort to come to the village where I live as well, I know it is a real trek for everyone :) I had a really lovely day so thank you again guys ♥
True love ♥
 I really can't believe that I have known Pete for eleven years...ELEVEN! Crazy times.
As usual, we were all laughing ourselves silly, hence why we all have super smiley faces :D As you can see from the photos, I wore my blue shorts again, They are from the Garden Collection at H&M and I am absolutely in love with them, they are so comfy.
 
What have you all been up to? Have you got plans for Easter?
