Hello Kitty, Chat & things


My collection of Hello Kitty soft toys on my bed is coming along nicely!

I got an orger delivered today from Boots.com. I got a few things that I couldn't find in the half price sale in store so I ordered them online!


Soap & Glory - Get This Set Glow:
Price: Reduced from £20 to £10 which is quite good!
What you get:
The Greatest Scrub of All™ Facial Smoother 125ml
Clean Mary™ Facial Cleansing Milk 75ml
Glow Job™ Daily Radiance Moisture Lotion 75ml
Super Eyes™ Moisturising Eye Gel 15ml
Super fluffy face cloth.
I tried the Super Eyes gel tonight and I must say it works just as well, if not better than my Clinique All About Eyes! They're both fantastic and make you look so awake.


Ruby & Millie Kabuki Brush
What you get:
Ruby & Millie Kabuki Brush
Soft purple pouch
I haven't tried this out yet, but it feels really soft and I've tried to pull at the bristles to see if it's likely to shed and none came out so that's a good sign!


Harajuku Lovers Snow Bunnies Perfume - Lil Angel & Baby
What you get: 10ml of product in each perfume & a super cute new outfit for each doll.
I decided to get just the two Harajuku Lovers that I love the most. Lil Angel & Baby have always been my favourites and their new outfits are adorable!

I'm trying to decide what I want to do for my birthday. I think I may go to Sheffiled and head into the Hello Kitty shop... if it's still here. I haven't been up that end of Sheffield in so long!
Possibly followed in the night by a trip to a pub with Hayley or work colleagues. I can't wait until saturday. I've never looked forward to a week off like I have this one! Only two more shifts left and they're not full days at work because of New Years. I hope it's not busy so hopefully we may close early.. Finger crossed.

Anyway, must go now.
Adios!

Random things.

I cannot wait for next Saturday for two reasons. A) It is the first day of my week of and B) IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!
I'll be 23 years old and I'll be getting my wonderful Soap & Glory Big Thrill hat box! My mum got it for me the other week when it was on Deal of the Week in Boots for only £20! That's a saving of £30. Not bad if you ask me. My mum is also treating me to a trip to Newcastle to see Editors in March which is my main Christmas present. I'm so excited. I adore Newcastle and I adore Editors even more! I cannot wait!

I got three new cases for my iPod Classic today. They were all only £3 each, but of course I got my discount on them. Such a bargain. http://youtube.com/missunboxing

I also just ordered something from a website and I'm hoping it is what I think it is. It's the Nightmare Before Christmas Special Edition. The photo on the website is this-

On the HMV website this is £139.99 and on this certain website it's £16.99 so I'm doubting that it is actually the one pictured, but if it's not then it's blatantly false advertising because that's the picture they showed! I won't be very happy!! hehe

Anyway, I better get to bed.
Adios!

Two days off and other ramblings

Hey everyone!
Finally I have two days off work! Let me tell you, 9 days straight (including a few 7am starts and 9pm finishes) really takes it out of you! I know people may not really think that working at HMV is a hard job and in some ways I suppose there are harder ones out there, but we have a lot to do, especially when you're in charge of a section like I am. There's orders to do, stock to be put out, top seller reports, CITing, repricing, serving, cleaning, moving sections around, remerchandising and at this time of year... helping Christmas temps out and other stuff. At Christmas working in the one and only music retailer is hell on earth. Don't get me wrong, I love my job and can't really see myself working anywhere else, but Christmas is so stressful and it ruined my Christmas last year. I'm not quite as stressed this year, thank god, but there's still a week to go! I'm working Christmas Eve and Boxing Day too. Blagh!

ANYWAY, two days off. I'm going to see Russell Howard tomorrow (as I've mentioned in every post I've made recently haha) I'm rather excited about it. Then on Sunday I'll be doing the last of my Christmas shopping on Sunday at Meadowhall. Woo! I only need to get a few bits, including buying something for my dad to give to my mum...

The dilema of what phone to buy once my contract is up continues. I was pretty certain that I was going to get the Nokia E72, but my friend bought an iPhone yesterday and let me play on it during my dinner today and now I am confused beyond belief. I think I might be leaning slightly towards the iPhone now. Except the main thing that I use my mobile for is the internet and the lay out of the internet on the iPhone is a little annoying, or maybe it's because i'm not used to it. I'm used to Opera Mini, where you have an option to have 'mobile view' where it fits the whole website to fit your screen and you can still read it without having to zoom in. Oh the confusion!

Now, Formula 1 chat. The main rumour going around right now is that Michael Schumacher will be returning next year with Mercedes GP. Part of me is excited to see Michael back but most of me is sad because Nick Heidfeld was supposed to be getting that drive with Mercedes. I really wish that he'd get given a good enough car to win some races. I think maybe he'll stay with Sauber or perhaps not get a drive at all and that would depress me a lot, espceially because Giancarlo is no longer going to be racing. I wish test drivers drove in races haha.

On a more cosmetics based chat, I was included on the Simple.co.uk Celebrity Hall of Fame!! http://www.simple.co.uk/Celebrity/Detail.aspx?fdCelebrityId=38
How amazing is that? I'm really proud!

I also urge everyone to watch this video!
It's Field Music's new song and video. David and Peter are wonderful blokes and so nice. I can't wait to see them again in Feb and get all giggly while talking to David again. They are the most underrated musicians I've ever come across and any little bit of promotion I can give them is my pleasure!
Field Music - Them That Do Nothing

How good is that?!

I was thinking of doing a 'Photo of the Day' sort of thing, where I take a photo of something random that happened that day. An object, place or person. What does everyone think?

I'm off now. Speak soon!

Adios!

Heartbeats by Lady Gaga Earphones :)

So, I did it. I bought my Lady Gaga Heartbeats earphones and I'm actually surprised at which colour I got! I thought it was between the silver or red ones, but I came out of work with the Black Chrome ones. They are so beautiful. They have a hint of a brassy colour to them that gives them such a pretty unique look. They are £79.99, but with my discount they were £55.99 and I traded in a couple of PS3 games and only paid £27.00, so that's pretty good. They are beautiful. So stylish and quite a fashion statement as well as functional!

Here are a couple of pictures-


Pretty, huh?

My unboxing video-


So, another day closer to seeing Russell Howard again. I better not be so tired from working 9 days in a row that I'm falling asleep during him! Although with how funny he is I doubt that it's likely. LOVE Russell!

I used my Tigi Dumb Blonde Reconstructor today and my hair smiles of pineapples. Yuuuummy. I might be dying my hair again shortly with one of those ten minute dye things. I need to get rid of this ginger in my hair it's doing my head in! Toners and purple blonde brightening shampoo isn't working that well, but the last time we did a strand test of my hair it broke off and I don't want to be going in to work with no hair! lol.

Anyway, that's all for now. Adios folks!

:(

I feel pretty depressed lately. I always get really down at Christmas. It was ok when I was at school but working over Christmas is just hell. I hate it. Customers asknig stupid questions, having to fix other peoples mistakes, having to cover for people who don't turn up. Sigh. I'm stressed and feel like crying quite a lot. Haha. Pretty funny, really.

Oh well. I think I'm going to buy the Lady Gaga Heartbeats headphones, but I'm not sure which ones to get, the red ones or the chrome ones. They're both so pretty. Uber expensive at £79.99, but with my discount they'd be about £55 which isn't that bad. Aren't they pretty?


I'm currently watching Jingle All The Way. It's one of the only Christmas films that I enjoy watching. What's your favourite Christmas film?

Woo!

Hello all. How's everyone doing? I'm going to try and keep this thing a little bit more updated. I always tend to start something and never really finish it, but oh well.

So, here's a few things that will be happening in the next year-
Russell Howard - I'll be off to see Russell Howard next Saturday and I'm rather excited about it! It'll be my second time of seeing him and hopefully it'll be muchos fun. I'm going with one of my best friends again. We met him last time.

He's a really nice bloke. It was a pleasure to meet him.

Dave Gorman - I'm proud to say that next year I will be witnessing Dave Gorman live for the first time. That man is a legend. Who else would travel all over the world just to meet people with the same name as him? Who'd travel all over the world to meet people who find him some Googlewacks (If you don't know what it is then google it hehe) I'm on the second row then I see him so that'll be another first. I've never really been any closer than row G. Can't wait!

Lee Mack - I adore Lee Mack. Not Gonig Out was a pleasant surprise for me and his live show DVD is quite funny. How can you not laugh at the 'swearing in front of your nan' bit? hilarity! I can't wait to see him for the first time.

Field Music - Good lord I cannot wait for this! Field Music are simply fantastic and very underrated. I've never see a more fantastic and inventive band in my life. Fabulous. I've seen them in several incarnations and I fall a little more in love with them every single time.

Jamie Cullum - I've never seen Jamie Cullum before and I'm rather looking foward to it. It'll be a whole different kind of show than what I'm used to so it'll be an interesting one, I think. Jamie is super talented so it should be brill.

Editors - I'll be off to Newcastle next year to see Editors because on their next tour they arent really playing a show near me and I love Newcastle so it was a good excuse to get up there again! I'm going with my mum which should be amusing. My mum's like the coolest mum in the world! It'll be the first time that I've been to Newcastle not to see an incarnation of Field Music or Maximo Park. lol. Woo Editors!

I think that's about it. I'll be signing off now.
Adios all!
