a few favourites

So due to my boredom, I'm on here and I thought I'd share my thoughts on a few beauties I've found recently.

Totally loving Benefits Sugar bomb, now being the tan addict I am, I usually stick to the good old Hoola but figured I should try something new, and this blusher is really nice! I feel like I have such a healthy glow when it's on. best £23 I've spent (+ boots points!)

I also tried to give the new John Frieda Root Awakening shampoo/conditioner a go. I'm not loving the smell (reminds me a bit of centre parks, if you've ever been there!) but it's really sorting my hair out! There's definitely some goodness in there. I usually choose my shampoo based on how nice it smells but I now realise it's not all about the smell. Seriously, give it a go!

I tried out Hawaiian tropics self tan, again, I was basing this purchase on the smell! I assumed that it would have the usual Hawaiian tropic sun lotion smell, all coco nutty and smelling of holidays! But no, it just smells of fake tan. The colour is nice, but I wasn't impressed with how long it took to dry. Don't think I'll be getting it again.

And my most recent find, Barry M' nail paint in 'Pink Flamingo' I actually think it's been around for a while but it's taking me away to discover this one. It's like a pinky coral, almost a salmon really. Basically a great spring colour.

Ahh I'm so excited that summer is on it's way, will have to do some holiday shopping soon!

That's something I can do, I'll start writing a list!

Hi, my name is Jenn

Never in my life have I been: good at sitting still for long.

The one person who can drive me nuts is: Max!

High school: Had it's moments but I'd love to do it again, the last 2 years anyway.

If I were to get married right now my best man/maid of honour: would be someone I can trust who knows me better than I know myself and has always been there for me.

My hair is:
too blonde at the moment, it needs sorting!

When I was 5: I was a brat, really! I saw a home video recently and I now realise why my younger brother was favourite, anything was adorable compared to me!

Last Christmas: Was brilliant, Christmas's are so much better now I don't live at home. Going back to visit feels so much more special.

I should be..: much richer, I would spend it so SO wisely!

When I look down I see: beautiful shoes

The happiest recent event was: getting some major recognition at work.

If I were a character on ‘Friends’ I’d be: Rachel. Her love life is like mine, all wrong timings!

Nickname: Legs

My current gripe is: Not being tanned enough! I want the sun to come out!

I have a hard time understanding: what we did before Google!

There’s this girl I know that: has a huge forehead and annoys the hell out of me at work!

Take my advice: Most things look better with a tan

The thing I want to buy: A new camera, but the one I want doesn't seem to be in any shops and I want to play with it!

If you visited the place I was born: You would see a row of phoneboxes falling over.

If you spent the night at my house: You'd probably end up playing singstar

I’d stop my wedding if: My Dad couldn't make it

The world could do without: religion, it's caused too many problems.

I’d rather lick the belly of a cockroach than:
stop buying shoes!

Most recent thing I’ve bought myself: You guessed it, shoes! 2 pairs, nude patent heels from Aldo and bright pink ones from Carvela. I love them!

Most recent thing someone else bought me:
Max bought me some flowers the other day.

In the morning I:
like to get up, I hate sleeping past mid-day, even if I need it. I'll sleep when I'm dead.

Once, at a bar: I thought Nasty Nigel from Popstars was Michael Cane and he bought me a glass of champagne. -Oooh it rhymes!

There’s this guy I know who: is running the Paris marathon on Sunday, he's my brother and he's awesome!

A better name for me would be: Mrs Schu, so I need to marry Mr Shuman from Glee

Tomorrow I am: Going to work then sorting out everything ready to go to Paris in the morning.

Well, that was fun. Always a pleasure!
